Look what's just lumbered into my medicine wheel this lunar month...
I have pinched this picture from Sebi's blog (Being Sebastian Aristos), but with a totally different agenda in mind, because it allows me to reflectively evaluate my Relationship prospects for this month... ;-))
Yep, Bear has arrived, in the north (fiery) quarter, along with Opossum (NW) and Weasel (NE); interestingly, these all correspond to power animals of B-E, so I feel I can expect a very strong, if passive and not at all obvious connection with him: perhaps on the astral? Must use these animals consciously somehow, to achieve this... Interestingly his Weasel also finds itself in my Relationships area: sneaky and up to no good, a difficult medicine to have, I feel it corresponds to Scorpio, as one who would pick the pockets of Great Spirit itself, just to show you can do it! Bear invites (summons? commands?) me into the dream lodge, and Opossum just likes to sleep, i.e. "play dead" - also a preferred strategy of B-E, which he inherits from his father? I have also surrounded the Bear shield with an "unbearably cute" bear cub, and a little cutout of a small, stuffed teddy advertised for 10 kroner ($2) in Norway... Anyone want to buy a cheap, used bear? lol
My RealPlayer synchronously begins to play "On the Wings of Love" (Plato) from Sophie's World as I type this; Plato always did equate to B-E's favorite philosopher, where I prefer Socrates, and Nietzsche ( unfortunately the book Sophie's World gave Nietzsche a wide berth - but it does however obliquely hint at him through the connection Aristotle - Darwin...?)
Btw, Bjorn also = "Bear" in Norwegian? ;-))
