I went for a walk in the woods near my house and spotted a deer grazing. It saw me and we exchanged a very long loving gaze. I felt honoured that it then just continued to graze and was not frightened off. According to the medicine cards Deer represents gentleness and I certainly felt that resonating between us.
I then had a claim to fame as I was interviewed via Skype by Ana Isabel astrologer for a programme about what it's like to have a Libra moon. If you are interested in astrology then you can catch up with any of Ana's programmes 'Astrology Programme - Lightways' on www.myspiritradio.com
This afternoon the relaxed pace and peaceful atmosphere was shattered by the Red Arrows flying over my house. They'd obviously heard that I'd finally published my Facebook page!
I believe they were actually marking the end of the two week Farnborough Airshow but that's irrelevant.
I found it rather ironic that I had started the day with the gentle deer and then rounded off the afternoon with a tumultuous fly past celebrating air power and weaponry.
Such is life. There is love and fear everywhere in this world of duality and the medicine card reminds me that "both the light and dark may be loved to create gentleness and safety for those who are seeking peace." (Sams and Carson 1998 Medicine Cards. St. Martin's Press).
