''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"


Yesterday's marathon of activity indicated the Action Planet is beginning to move forward.  So beginning very early AM today, I'm correcting the booboos, tailenders associated with New Projects and more vis a vis the stars rule..........sigh. Edgar Cayce said the stars impel not compel (somehow I missed the memo). 


The Action Planet is slow to move due to Mercury Retrograde post shadow phase, so it was a slo-mo lazy weekend.  Although I retired years ago, the habitual conditioning of the work week vs weekend, is still operating, even though I always had to work weekends!  Per this  example of subconscious programing, we can only wonder what other domestication software is running?


I plan on coasting  through Mercury Retrograde post shadow period, reserving tweaking projects until  the coast is clear!  I still have Christmas shopping to complete so putting all the rest on the back burner while the retrograde energy fades away. Good intentions!


retroshade: it ain't over 'til it's overDuring the “shadow period,” Mercury’s influence will inevitably make itself known. Mercury’s shadow will linger until December 24, 2018. During this cycle, we should all take the necessary Mercury retrograde precautions, moving ahead at a gentle clip and not rushing into anything binding. Back up all data to password-protected (or firewall-protected) cloud storage, changing overused login codes and making sure that all important bills are being paid in a timely fashion.


*NEW MOON* rising in Sagittarius on December 6th/7th, the same day Mercury goes Direct.There are many moving parts right now as our worlds are being recreated and renewed.Sagittarius New Moon coupled with Mercury going Direct is unleashing an inspired energetic stream moving us toward liberation as we long to explore new pathways and new avenues.The energy is exciting, fiery and inspired, wanting to dismantle and begin anew.
We are responsible for our own happiness and so rather than looking outside, we need to turn inward and ask ourselves, what will ultimately feed and nurture our Soul and what can we do to shift into that alignment. May we navigate these changing tides with grace and ingenuity!


I awoke sensing the change as Mercury Retrograde goes stationary direct tomorrow, December 6, 2018 - and about time!  I should have rode this one out hiding under the bed, but instead,  I challenged the stars by plunging ahead when I knew better. . . sigh. The 'new project' has tailenders to process during the  post retrograde phase,  as the Action Planet regains it's momentum.


Did I say Mercury is still retrograde re my New Project?  I knew better but had installed dot coms via host server in the past,  but that was then. This time it's like a box of chocolates, you don't know what you'll get.  Ennyway. . . . I'll keep tweaking.  Stay tuned.


Another sister (in-law) unexpectedly crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday, RIP, and  I'm beyond sad at her loss, but happy we'd  had a fun chat just a few hours before.  Don't wait, call/visit those dear.


FYI my alternative website www.ozarkwisewoman.blog-spot.com is now changed to kaycambron.blogspot.com.  It will focus on The Cottage, decorating, guest interior design, some of my homes, travel and more.  Stay tuned. (I'm reserving the dot com for new server).


I've been busy decorating, and along the way received inspiration as the Mercury Retrograde vibrational slowdown cleared the deck for higher frequencies of creative expression.  More on this after Mercury goes stationary direct.


With Mercury the action planet gone retrograde, some are experiencing  setbacks/speed bumps.  Here at The Cottage, while the above is true, on the plus side I'm enjoying the slowdowns sharpening focus/intention.  The activated zen frequency revealed clarity in areas I've been ignoring and the slow motion provided the space to correct, review, refresh, revise, release.  


Did you know what you send out will return to you?  If you beam love, love will beam you right back! This includes inanimate objects since it's all energy,  so love your car, your job, your house etc.  Ditto emotions - bless everyone and everything and The Universe will return it in appropriate form, Right For You.  Try it.

Present Moment Reminder


If your reality mirror is less than you'd like, then change your thinking/self-talk.   If you understand that the outer reflects the inner, then amend the latter and the former will respond. The subconscious mind believes what you present it aka it's technology, garbage in garbage out, so give it what you prefer.


Getting ready for the holidays is a reminder to rededicate to my decorating hobby,  a moving meditation, activated as a child on the farm. Inspired by supportive parents, I'm ever grateful for the No Limits space they provided, where creative self expression was encouraged and  approved.  Familial DNA set the bar high, both a challenge and a gift.  Thank you.


Image result for antique gas heaterHappy Thanksgiving!  I'm going to family dinner today, always fun to spend some time with my talented nieces that have shared this path with me.  Our host, their Mother, gave me my first bubble gum and taught me how to blow bubbles and another time,  rolled  my long hair (I had natural curl so dunno why?) in rags for an Olan Mills Photoshoot with my nieces, greatly treasured today, and I'll never forget their cozy guest bedroom in Oklahoma City where I'd fall asleep watching the flames of the pretty gas heater - maybe accounts for my love of hearth, whether English fireplace or wood stove on the farm. Happy days.


PAT LILES from The Power Path shares:

“This cycle comes into fullness with the energy of an inspired new beginning.  With Gemini/Sag we are able to consider not only information, detail and all mental input, but we are also able to hold the big picture vision we all need as we pass through this time of tremendous transformation.“So, now is the time to dream your dream and engage and perfect your ability to hold your vision of the future while taking care of the details of life…


The 2018 holiday season activated the design fairy/domestic goddess  here at The Cottage, inspired by holiday memories growing up on the farm,  made so special by my artistic creative parents (their gift that keeps on giving).  With gingerbread cookies on the buffet, candles on the dining table twinkling in the crystal chandelier, and  Mama's Russian spiced tea simmering on the stove, I'm blessed with contentment in spite of missing my loved ones that crossed the Rainbow Bridge all too soon, but ever alive in mind and heart. . . they'll always be with me in spirit.   


Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius: revising our perspectives

Mercury began the latest edition of its retrograde process on November 16th/17th, which will last until December 6th/7th. In the weeks (and especially days) leading up to it we start to notice its influence as Mercury slows down and comes to a stop before moving the other way. This is known as the ‘pre-shadow’ period which began on October 29th.
Mercury retrograde is known for the problematic effects it often has on communication technology, transactions, motor vehicles, anything with moving parts, and commuting in general. Some people even get headaches near the beginning of it. We could experience some challenges, misunderstandings, and errors around our communications, numbers/details, and commerce, as well as changes, cancellations, or delays in our schedules.


A few mornings ago I was surprised by a momentary glimpse of  A New Earth.   Did the fond snow memories elevate vibrations activating the shift into that frequency?  Although too brief for details, it was for real -  live action in living color instantly identifiable!  Stay tuned,


In spite of life's passages, some things remain much the same -  such as welcoming the holiday season and all the trimmings.  The gatherings grew smaller over the years and nothing can replace my  loving husband gone too soon, who shared fully in the holiday spirit, so fun.  I am so blessed and ever thankful. 


We had some Goldilocks snow at The Cottage (just right- ground covered but roads clear), inspiring a raised vibratory sense a la A New Earth.  I'm content, with a cuppa, fire in the fireplace, candles lit in honor of the goddess, grateful to my artistic gardener healer parents that passed on their DNA/creativity and the space to explore. Growing up, on  a morning like this I would have a cup of Mama's cocoa, toes by the fire, probably reading a fairytale, free to dream until time to make snow ice cream - I can still taste it.  Thanks to The Universe for its gifts.


Here's a shout out to all our vets!  Thank you for your service.
