It's the Autumn Equinox, with the energy of The Sword

Everyone's favorite season is about to start, dear readers - the Autumn Equinox officially happens tonight, at 9:09 pm Mountain Time.

I Dream of Mountain Meadows © Jan Burch 2010

I've pulled a few cards from the Star+Gate cards to see what psychic energies will prevail during the next several weeks. We are given:

The Sword ~ The attitude of self-expression through major action, balanced by discernment, artfulness, and timing

The Bell ~ Attracting and attuning. What are you calling into your life right now?

The Star of Laugh ~ Humor, playfulness, and vitality made visible. This is not a time to second-guess oneself; let your worries fall away and just do it!

What Means Courage?

Yesterday I was inspired to use some of my dramatic Albuquerque sunset photos to create business and motivational products at my Zazzle store. Starting with this striking Edge of the Storm photo, I realized that it spoke to me of Courage ~


Then I started looking through some online quotations sites for a saying to match the essence of this picture. None were quite right, although I did like this one:

Courage is fire; bullying is smoke, which is attributed to Benjamin Disraeli.

Several quotations conveyed the sense that courage amounts to walking through our difficult times. That resonated with me, so I put the words together into this beautiful words-and-picture combo that you see on the sticker shown above. I currently have several useful products - a mug, mousepad, and binder - with this illustration, and I plan on adding a full range of Edge of the Storm COURAGE products soon. It will include business cards, posters, stationery, labels, and more. I hope you'll find these products as strengthening and uplifting as I do!

Beauty School ~ What a Fun Learning Experience!

Beauty School? Why not - in these tough economic times, it pays for us all to expand our earning potential. And the quest for Beauty is something that never fades! My friends who've gone to beauty schools tell me they've been enriched by the wonderful blend of ethnic groups, age ranges, personalities, and life experiences among the the students. And the careers they develop are satisfying, because after all, Truth is Beauty. To help another person, your client, reveal their inner truth and become beautiful is rewarding indeed. Beauty School ~ a good choice!
