Further NOTES RE-OWL
Long Nights Time – thoughtful people, capable of seeking things out from the minds of others. Questioning ‘direction’ – getting a clear sighting of goals.
West Wind – able to cope with change and renewal.
North West – KARMA – repeated lessons until they are learnt. Imparting knowledge. Need for firm friendships and close relationships.
OWL – totem of mind, wisdom, sacred science, proud, observant. Drawn to esoteric subjects, ‘secrets’ with caution. Practical reality. Need to vanish if things become too involved (in these times in danger of being misunderstood, hurting themselves.)
OWL EXPRESSION – warm-hearted, jovial, fun-loving, independant outlook, adventurous temprement. Love of the great outdoors. Freedom from confinment and limitation. Freedom of mind and expression, freedom to go where they please, think what they like, say what they feel. Alert minds mean they develop more interests than they can cope with, becoming master of none. Enjoy lengthy conversations and arguments. Enjoy talking about things that interest them, less enthusiastic about other peoples’ interests. Explosive expressions if touched on a raw spot. Boldness and frankness – sometimes seen as insensivity/rudeness. Bitterly sarcastic when hurt. Run away from responsibility. Often this rebounds on them. Corageous. Pioneers/Explorers/Visionaries.
OWL HEALTH – danger spots are waistline, liver, hips and thighs. Excess weight and nervous exhaustion.
MISTLETOE. – medicine for cholera, convulsions, hysteria. Fertility/conception. Magical air. Clinging tendencies. Renewal.
OBSIDIAN – power to sharpen outer and inner vision. Foresight. ‘Apache tears’ – protection from grave sorrow. Balance emotions. Protection from emotional trauma. Powerful meditation tool.
GOLD – higher octave of orange. Love, compassion, realisation. Inspiring and comforting.

“And so it goes.
From the cluttered, smoky, chickens, nettles,caravans and rusty old motors.Lumpy tracks and car catching brambles out to the small town and its black and white face by the side of the sea. Its cheery shop windows in the pouring rain.
My shopping basket full of good things.
My head tired and weary.
Looking forward to the comfort of hot china, steaming, in the cupped palms of my hands.
The driving, in the chilling rain, on winding tarmac, over wheel-caught toads and rabbits, through dark alleys carved through pines, with the fleeting glimpse of moody water.
Somewhere to make a base.
I don’t know.
Go to Germany – sell Millie.
Return and buy a better motor. Another taxi?? Call it Maxi, Max for short. And spend a year in Britain. Why not?
