First Day of Spring; Waking Vision: The Keys of a Time Lord? The Horse and Feather; The Squirrel.

Wow, what a day! This day has a lot packed into it. There was a solar eclipse early this morning, it is a new moon and on this side of the world, it is the first day of Spring. I have learned in detail and have begun regularly practicing the wisdom of “sidewalk tarot” as a way of engaging the Universe in dreaming while awake. This activity is lived and taught by example regularly by Robert Moss as evidenced in his many books and at his blog. I spoke in detail about Moss and his great work in the blog post before this one.

So, this is what I came upon today as I was walking my dog on this oomphy day, early this morning, three items caught my attention:

The keys were hanging on some semi-tall bushes at the corner of a street. My immediate thought was that someone lost them and someone else had found them and put them there hoping the person who lost them would find them more easily. Then, I looked more closely. There is a picture of a clock in between 3 and 4. On the other side, there was simply the number “9”. Directly connected to that picture is a gear that resembles something that would be in a clock. Next picture is of the keys from the other side.

I see this horse as kind of spiritual or magical and seems to be holding on to the twig like ready to climb up to somewhere or looking up at someone?

To the far right of the horse was this feather and a small bit of dried flowers.
My blog post writing was interrupted by a good friend wanting to go for a little walk. While walking we saw some beautiful chalk art and then she spotted this squirrel peering at us from it's home.

Here is a closer look.

I love the simple-beauty-magic of spotting all of this.

The keys made me think of a Time Lord (yes, I am a Dr. Whovian). A Time Lord would maybe have keys like this. And the number 9 made me think of The Beatles “Revolution Number 9”. Both great things. The keys are intriguing. Like the message is: Here are the keys, not just the key, but the keys and it is time!

The horse, like I said under the photo, seems to be in the motion of going somewhere or looking at something. This horse, if imagined, like a child playing with it, is not bound by the prostate position it is in. But rather, is at another angle in dream reality, climbing up a tree to look at something or to enter another portal. This is a spirit horse. Maybe this horse was peering at the squirrel in the last of these photos?

The feather, near the horse and with dried red flowers by it, always speaks to me of blessing, grace, lifting up one’s intention for the higher heart and the greatest good. The present and presence of a feather brings hope and the energy to rise above situations and energies. With the red dried flower beside it, I feel the added energy of miracle (that is a flower) preserved and honored. This, in particular, speaks to a situation I am dealing with at this time.

And then, as I was posting this, a friend called to have a short walk with me and on the walk she spotted the squirrel peering out gently and intently at us from its lovely Hackberry tree home. The squirrel is adorable with its face perfectly framed by the hole which is the entrance of its home. This squirrel also shows looking out at things from a higher level and from a place of safety and security that is in tune with nature. Squirrel survived the winter and is looking to begin a new level of foraging and activity for the Spring.

Those are my views of this micro-adventure of the first day of Spring and new moon. So, If these were your visions today, what would they mean to you?
