George Bush creates new award for John Howard
I just learned today that George Bush has created new award, just for John Howard. Now we also learned, at trivia, that the Victoria Cross bears the two simple words, "For Valour". What did they write on John's award, but three simple words, "For sucking up"? Even the Americans seem stunned by his level of sucking. Get real, John, sucking up will never have a place of honour in any "Australian way". Someone should sack you for "unAustralian activities". Whatever happened to the even more honorable, larrikin art of "taking the piss"?
Dreams: After a hard night travelling in the Otherworld of dream-literati, it seems that must also have been at least semi-lucid, because when at one point I thought I had inadvertently given a copy of my driver's licence (with street address) to another player, I seemed able to tell myself that the TV (off) did not amount to my computer, and I did not have the computer logged in to literati, all without waking up! Maybe I should stay off the piss more, because then my dreams do increase in lucidity, as I had hoped? (I could even sleep more, due to tiredness at not feeling able to eat properly) ;-))
I also had another dream, which I interpreted even within the dream (also an act of lucidity?) as being a visitation from Anne Rice in the form of one of the dolls from her collection. In the dream, I found myself pushing around a tiny doll-carriage containing two dolls, one dark- and one fair-haired, which I eventually named Anne and Sophie (Anne equated to the dark-haired one, and did quite resemble photos of Anne Rice). I also had to push around a baby carriage containing another doll and a stuffed, pink rabbit, all while trying to find my way home, and getting hungrier and hungrier, feeling "homeless" even, because of transport delays and frustrations. Finally "Anne" and "Sophie" (Wisdom, her fair-haired companion) became real, as in the story of the Velveteen Rabbit, and they stood under a tall tower which seemed in imminent danger of exploding; I felt concerned for their and all of our safety (o O, the Tarot Arcanum of the burning Tower, XVI?), but the tower, red-coloured, did not explode, and they turned into some kind of reptilian monsters, and just laughed at it ("banishing by laughter"?), so I knew everything would be alright... ;-))
Comment: the pink rabbit could represent Sebi, with his "unconditional, positive regard" (Carl Rogers), from the heart? In that sense, and that sense only ("maintaining boundaries"), can he call himself my "counsellor"! lol
Today's cyber-Tarot: Actually I disagree totally with the interpretation given for today's cyber-Tarot, 4 of Pentacles ("cleaving to material power"), as I usually do, but don't bother to comment. I would rather interpret it, from my own customised Tarot, as an injunction to simply "slow down, you move too fast / You've got to make the morning last now" (as per the words of Simon and Garfunkel's "Feelin' Groovy").
Addition to 21st century kabbalistic astrology: if we also include the other planet, Chiron, the Wounded Healer, that makes 11 planets (see 10 below), also incorporating the mysterious 11th sephira Daath, Knowledge, or gnosis (the initiate's way)? ;-))
