Botanical/magical examination and illustration by myself.
More information and esoteric correspondences (that I have been painstakingly researching since 2018 and it's usage will now be found solely on my upcoming Patreon account.
My first good reference sheet(s) for the piranha teeth queen herself!!! 6th-9th slides are her backstory— I tried to keep it short. (Keep in mind I’ll make references for her 2nd form later.) I’ve had Octvian for a while and I have to say— she’s changed a lot. She used to be really mean but now she’s a mom friend who has the ability to show a soft side and WILL bite your enemies’ arms off if she wants to. I love her so much please help me
I just wanted to make a quick set of references because I felt like I needed one!! Now I can finally ask people to draw her bc she’s kind of my main oc at the moment heheheheheheheh- *NOTE- Duriel is not my character
Last night/this morning I had a vivid dream where I calmly faced and resolved an emotional conflict with another only to be met with two large male moose who were on a rampage defending their territory. One moose left and the other was held down until it calmed down enough to be let go.
While there were other key elements to this dream, the Moose itself stood out to me and I delved into the guidance that it may be offering me at this junction in my life. The messages in conjunction with the themes of the different corvids I talked about in yesterday's Soul Animal Discovery FB live event are clear: It's time to stand my ground and make choices that are right for just me despite how it might look or feel to others. 📸 A moose shedding velvet. Antlers grow at high speeds within a velvet-like casing over the course of winter into spring. At the start of breeding season the velvet sheds and by winter the antlers fall off to start all over again. The symbolism of antlers revolves around the concept of boundaries. There is much to philosophically explore when one thinks about the cycle of antler growth and shed.

“Don’t let the scale define you. Be active, be healthy, be happy.” Everyday I was stepping on the scale to see the same numbers😩I had to stop stepping on the scale. It was doing something to me mentally. Try not to focus so much on the numbers on the scale sis I’m telling you. It only discourages you sis.
This canvas took me a lot of time and a lot of energy to create. I had originally painted 7 canvases that were going to be in a collection titled Blood Shaman. I wasn’t in a positive place when I painted them and I joked that I was painting my demons out. Apparently I was too because they all came out looking like blood soaked monsters. I wound up not liking any of them and I set them aside to paint over when they called to me again. When I began this collage on top of the Blood Shaman painting I feel like the demons were still in the canvas. My inner voice kept telling me that the painting wasn’t good and wasn’t going to be good, that I wasn’t an artist and that I was just fooling myself by trying to be one.
I almost let that voice win and quit painting but instead I went out in nature for a bit and I reminded myself how much I love painting and how alive and connected it makes me feel when I paint. Why should I let self doubt and mental conditioning ruin that? I went back in and I let my emotions and my strength flow out onto the canvas and I absolutely love every bit of the end result.
For me personally, this painting symbolizes strength, triumph and transformation. A quieting of the inner critic.
I created this art with acrylic paint, ink, salvaged fibers, old book pages and sealer.

Today the ♊︎ Gemini stellium is popping, with the ☉Sun, ♀Venus Rx, Mercury, Vesta, the ☽ Moon + the North Node. Many people, many perspectives! The Sun is square Mars + Ceres in ♓︎ Pisces, and ♀Venus is square ♆ Neptune in ♓︎ Pisces. In our search of trying to make sense of all the different, often times competing viewpoints, we can rest in the solace of remembering that in the end all will be known. There is a timeless Truth represented and held safely within the realms of Pisces that we can relax into, even if that other part of us needs to know NOW.
How was that ☽ New Moon in ♊︎ Gemini for you? Where did it occur in your natal chart? It’s not too late to dive into a Moon tracking cycle for this season, as the energy set at the New Moon reverberates through the cycle. We have a Full Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius June 5th, and the 1st and 3rd quarter moons are Virgo + Pisces, reflecting our need for mutability, adaptability, and flexibility.
Pay attention to what comes up for you emotionally around new information (♊︎), with the transiting Moon conjunct the North Node today. We also have a grand air trine involving Juno in Libra Rx, trine Pallas + ♄ Saturn in ♒︎ Aquarius Rx, + the ☉ Sun at 4˚♊︎. This means ease + flow of new information, particularly in how we confront what we’ve been attached to in the past (the retrograde planets), and the way new information + the new paradigm confronts the societal + personal structures we’ve become familiar with. There is a strong mental creative intelligence right now that is seeking to be expressed through you, where you have these air signs in your chart.This is a great time to take advantage of the ideas floating in the ether, and get them on paper, or recorded in some way. This is a great time to play with perspectives.

What I started thinking is that Icke is a shapeshifter who spreads a lot of the truth but with no solutions keeping us in 3D fear timeline, that is why he has not been taken out so far. I don't think anymore of him to be the light warrior.
Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan - magician, poet, mask-maker, iconoclast, bard.
Alongside David Bowie, Joseph Campbell, and Tori Amos, Bob Dylan was invaluable for introducing me to the idea of "The Masks of God," of being a "myth-screen," as Tori Amos put it. As someone who's struggled with impostor syndrome, of feeling like a poseur in my younger years, of being confused around the ideas of authenticity and creativity in a media-saturated world, this has done much to soothe my soul. As a Gemini rising, it also helped me understand my own relation to masks and archetypes, even how they play out here on social media.
Bob Dylan also helped introduce me to the gloriously ramshackle world of American music and Americana, as well as the more European traditions like romanticism and the decadent. He helped give me a vocabulary to understand the often humble language of country music, folk, blues, and various forms of antiquated pop music, from Vaudeville to Salvation Army Orchestras, country swing, mariachi, and rock 'n roll.
It's pretty much the underpinning of my work around folk/volk culture, which underlies so much of my critical work. Art made by, for, and about "regular people," as if you have to be rich to have dreams, to be capable of magick and beauty and Art. In my experience, much of the best of these things come from everyday people and lives.
So happy birthday, Bob Dylan! I'm going to go listen to The Basement Tapes and peruse the junkstore of my soul/mind, which you've done so much to help populate. .
i've *been* the weird mount... esaci was a shapeshifter who on more than one occasion turned into a quetzalcoatlus and carried passengers.
otherwise it's gotta be temoc's magically sensitive ass though.
Oh, just realized @actordougjones was also Pencilhead in "Mystery Men" (and many other creatures in other movies). He is really a shapeshifter in movie history! https://twitter.com/IMDb/status/1264616943107129344 …

There just aren’t enough hours in the day, and I wasn’t able to complete the last couple of prompts for the #hauntedgardenartchallenge 🥀 So now I’m working on a larger painting that’s a bit of fae, a bit of night creature, slightly overgrown, with a little touch of something more… 🌑
I can’t wait to share it with all of you very soon 🖤
As I was meditating I had this question about the ability of clairvoyance - and why it was taking so long for me to receive “visions”.
I have been claircognizant for a long time now and it has always been extremely useful, but I’ve been so craving having the experience of visions for so long now and was getting frustrated with myself for not having it show up quicker.
So I decided to channel the answer from my Higher Self - and asked why is it that we don’t just start getting visions (or other abilities) more rapidly - why is it more of a gradual process?
And the download that came through was that for some people it is fast - rapid even, but for others it is a gradual experience.
The reason for this is that each soul is experiencing their reality through the lens of the lessons that their soul came here to understand, interpret, and essentially report back to Source.
So for example, each soul - when it comes into this reality is assigned lessons and each lifetime, they change depending on what we have learned (upon ‘leveling up’ or ascending into higher consciousness.
So upon entering the world of form, the ‘grand Game of Life’ - the soul chooses the cosmic blueprint (for each lifetime) that allows the human the opportunity to best tackle those challenges and understandings. (Continued below
ALLENAMENTO E SOGGETTIVITÀ: partire da ciò che siamo.
Troppe persone iniziano il loro percorso di allenamento senza avere ben chiaro cosa fare, come muoversi, quali sono le priorità, e da qui via a sollevare manubri e bilancieri, serie su serie alle macchine più varie e disparate emulando i fitness model di instagram.
Rifflettendo un attimo: quante persone di quelle che conoscete e che si allenano hanno un fisico o delle capacità atletiche degne di nota?
Certo ci sono le eccezioni, ma al netto di chi ha una buona gestione del proprio corpo e “genetica favorevole” (riassumiamo così una serie di concetti abbastanza complessi) coloro che ottengono ottimi risultati sono davvero pochi.
Quindi cosa bisogna fare per raggiungere i propri obiettivi?
Per prima cosa bisogna rendersi conto delle proprie capacità REALI, capire qual’è il nostro punto di partenza: ecco che entra in scena il concetto di SOGGETTIVITÀ.
Questo concetto racchiude tutto ciò che conta realmente per innescare un processo volto al raggiungimento del proprio obiettivo.
Caso specifico di @edoardotoretto
Obiettivo: crescita muscolare
Step 1: analisi sul percorso svolto finora e background sportivo
Step 2: dare ordine di priorità agli aspetti più limitanti
Step 3: stendere un programma sensato sulla base degli step 1 e 2 (analisi sulla SOGGETTIVITÀ)

The unbinding of spirits; Werewolf, Werewolves, Waelwulfas, Wooler, Wolfmire
DreamBook Excerpt Pg 134:
“Mesa said Waelwulfas! Waelwulfas Vader.” Replied the boy correcting his father. Pádraigmór grew red in the face and replied again trying to keep his composure; “It is only wolves. Perheps even owls end der Waelwulfas don’t walk as in Vinrúlfr days, not here in Malbon. No one’s seen or heard Vinrúlfr for over a 1000 years. Nooo-one!” Just then an owl hooted.

A great mantra for the week! Give it a try, and as you say/think the words, invite out the energy of what isn’t serving you and bring into your mind’s eye what it is that you would like to experience. This can include how you would like to choose to respond to situations that feel like they are out of your control - that choice, in particular, can be one of the biggest #shapeshifter ‘s of your #reality 🙌🏻🌈✨
