As my focus is to doodle, the Divine changes it

The artist begins with lines, shapes, and sizes. My process in doodledum is simple: lose control of pen, let my thoughts tangle – let my heart quiet. What’s the next doodle?

Clouded (harvest) moon

Full moon (Harvest moon) 9/20/2021

Sometimes I forget how adventurous it can be to let my dogs out for their last business thing at night. My little one Azra, was jumping around like a little pony barking at who knows what. and Benji my Bichon Frise, was on full alert, while watering a few weeds.

I looked up to the sky and saw this amazing moon trying to show off, but couldn’t because the clouds kept wanting to keep it secret. In tarot, the Moon card is number 18, but often shows up in traditional decks as roman numerals: XVIIl, in this case.

Why is this important? The moon in tarot symbolizes illusions. Fears, deception, hidden truths, white lies, maybe big lies, and so forth. The moon and its tides, affect the oceans, and in fact, us; our physical bodies. If we are indeed made up of over 60% of water, depending on your age apparently… then why wouldn’t we be affected by the pull of the moon and its gravitational pull, on the tidal waves on earth?

Similary, on deep sub-conscious levels and why there may be so many visits to the ER during full moons, is that we are connected in such a way, energetically, in quantum reality, not even I can begin to understand, but do, because of my own reactions to full moons. I’m not a scientist… we all know that by now if you’ve been reading my blog for a minute, numerology, and my early pic of the not-yet-full-moon, is interesting.

Yesterday, was the 18th (the numerology for the moon), today, unknowingly, I took the cool pic above, the 19th, and tomorrow, is the actual full moon, 20th. If you add up all numbers, they are 18=9, 19=10, and 20=2. Do these numbers mean anything to you? Consequently, the roman numeral XIX=19, depicts the Sun in the tarot, following the moon in tarot. Moon and sun.

Unfortunately, then (or fortunately) Mercury retrograde starts on September 27, 2021 in Libra. Once again, if we add 9+2+7=18 (you get the moon numerology number again) which add backs to the number 9. In Numerology: endings and new beginnings. The point at which we can look back and rake in all our experiences and knowledge, and know how we came to know what we know. A good example is the female human pregnancy cycle of 9 months. How about when we turn 18, at least here in the US, we’re FREE! Considered adults. But are we FREE!? How about the nine Choirs of Angels? Shall I continue? It is indeed a divine and sacred number.

So, what were you doing about 4 months ago during the last retrograde, May 29-June 22? These last for about 3 weeks folks, so too will this one.

My job is done. I’ve brought your attention to this full moon and the upcoming retro! Many blessings, and hang in there, it’s temporary! Sandi

Show that you know

Take a minute out of your busy day – check in, say it; I’m here, I feel you…

Empaths quite simply, have the ability to feel others. Their emotions, feelings, pain, and disturbed, confused, feelings of desperation, and so many other emotionally challenging issues. We have the ability to touch others simply by saying, ‘I sense you are going through something right now. You are not alone. You are loved, you are not alone – you are loved.’

It can literally break the darkness, and bring in some light. SHOW THAT YOU KNOW.

Find a way – your way – to say it. The more we connect, the more we rise to levels of thoughtfulness, caring, love, light and keep shining that light collectively.

Many blessings folks – please be good to others and be good to yourselves. Sandi

Try it

rope me,

bring me in

close the gate

in an iron corral

think what you want


you gave it your all

you won

here I am,

gated; trapped

now you plan

how to tame,

you’ve done it a million


I gallop, I prance

I won’t kick up up


you have no idea

what you’re doing

in this dance

your eyes trained on mine

you’ll give it your all

but you don’t know do


walk all around

see me,

I am your mirror

you can’t tame what’s part

The power of music

Dance in the kitchen with your children. Dance as if no one is watching… the lyrics in your head? Is there a message in there somewhere by your spiritual team? Your angel’s are speaking to you through music. Your children or your child-like way of being, is calling you to be a bit more light-hearted. Will you?

It thuds loud at first

from the inside

And then slowly

it pours out

like spoiled and loud


nothing is exempt from the


living, breathing, seeing, hearing,

what am I missing?

A mask with no eyes

a mouth with no words

only the gentle flutter

of quiet birds

make no mistake

The only thing it doesn’t take

is love wrapped up and flown from a


the peace and purity is epic

once again to be returned as clean

Is it possible to learn tarot cards the easy way?

Start learning tarot cards with traditional decks such as: Rider-Waite tarot.

In this episode, I cover the suit of Swords: Ace – three of swords.

The answer is… Yes, there are easy ways to learn tarot. But I never said it would be quick… Everyone has a very specific learning style and from there, it can be applied to the ways in which tarot will ‘speak’ to you.

Tarot is a tool used for working with our subconscious minds. During meditations, a card, or spread can be used to bring focus to certain areas of our lives that are unclear, confusing, or if certain directions need to be taken.

I’m excited to share what I know about tarot, so that all may begin a journey of self-discovery. Whether it’s for your own personal use or to help others…

Nope, not this time…

A perfect day to fish in Pecos, New Mexico – Monastery Lake: Benedictine Monastery.

If I were a fisher chic, It would’ve been perfect conditions to fish in this lake today. I sat with the stillness and in the background, I noticed the fish jumping out of the water. I soaked in the fresh, clear, and crisp air. I watched the reflection of clouds bounce out of the water too, as if fish and clouds were in some kind of competition.

Upon a closer look though, I noticed the school of tiny fish come closer to me. As if they were showing me something. But what? Eventually, they’ll grow bigger, and may end up at the end of the fish hooks of the many fishing rods searching and tricking them to bite.

Temptations maybe?

Foreboding signs?

It’s not like these fish can escape a life of escaping… The bright side? They’re all in it together.

Something we can all learn as humans? Living in a giant lake for a fish bowl can’t be that bad? I loved the day and the hope it brings. After all, living is a part of being in the dying process. Only to be born again and again.

Many blessings folks! Oh, and happy fishing! Sandi
