The Second Agreement “Don’t Take Anything Personally”
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
Your truth is personal to you. Your own opinions and point of view reflect your own agreements and are personal to you. It is no one’s truth but yours. -Don Miguel Ruiz The Four Agreements
Metal Season kicked off 8/7 and goes to 11/7 – with full day of Metal Element season on the 8th…. If you were born in Metal season or have an abundant amount of Metal in your Astrology chart, listen up…

Ancient people tended to treat the entire landscape as the body of Mother Earth and seem to have universally invented possessions and powwows-gatherings over her body to celebrate her fertility, and the awesome cycles of regenerative life they experienced within her being. Some of the earlier structures in the British Isles are henges, or a great round circles shaped on the land, where people gathered together at annual fairs, to meet and marry, to share their produce and livestock, and to tell stories and exchange information and culture.
Today our county and state fairs are the remnant of these ancient practices and still operate as places where prize-winning produce and livestock are displayed and teenagers win prizes. It’s interesting that the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival – a gathering of thousands of women who come together to listen to music, take workshops, and share rituals of female spirituality together – has happened every August for more than 20 years.
Lammas time falls under the sign of Leo represented by the Sun 🌞 card; Playful child like Leo 🦁 (my Sun Sign) personality emerging through spontaneous, uninhibited, theatrical self-expression. Share your creative endeavors for the year, to give expression to your poetry, songs, books, and births of various kinds. – excerpts from Making Ritual with MotherPeace Cards
Enjoy the rest of your magical weekend whatever your doing, have fun. Peace & Harmony, Jacqui Pepper 🌶
Judgment: Judgment can often bring an element of surprise and the realization that this strenuous chapter of your life has now closed. It can be difficult to comprehend that the roadblocks are now removed. A sense of freedom releases you from feeling continually obligated. You can take a fresh look at life and begin new ventures. It is an ideal time to see just how possible it is to step into your future.
Reserved Core Aspect: (card pulled upside down) A feeling of unease and unrest will continue until you decide to do something about it. Rid yourself of the “poor me“ complex. Feeling sorry for yourself will only make the situation worse. If you are feeling low, unable to detach from old mistakes, now is the time to stop judging yourself and be prepared to establish a new beginning.
Here’s to Releasing the Judge inside our heads. Freedom to be. Notice where you Judge and what burdens you can release from your mind, all ego.

Deer with me, I mean Bear with me 😍… if you’ve been following my social media, you know I’m posting a lot of deer lately but this happened! Yesterday as I’m walking a friend outside, this deer comes right up to us, I hold my hand out and she touches it with her nose… it was the sweetest thing. ❤️
Somebody must be feeding these ladies… You can’t blame them they’ve lost their homes from all the building out here in Sarasota country, and wildlife has no where to go? They can always find refuge on our property.
What is the meaning of the deer totem? The meanings associated with the deer combine both soft, gentle qualities with strength and determination:
🎋Gentleness 🎋Ability to move through life and obstacles with grace 🎋Being in touch with inner child, innocence 🎋Being sensitive and intuitive 🎋Vigilance, ability to change directions quickly 🎋Magical ability to regenerate, being in touch with life’s mysteries -spirit animal.info
🧝🏾♀️ II HIGH PRIESTESS: The high priestess, like the Moon, is watery and receptive, the changing female aspect symbolizing intuition, the night and the inner patience of one who waits for knowledge from within. Balanced between polarities, holistic, a symbol of “two-in-one,“ she represents the Egyptian Black Isis and Sophia, the Greek goddess of wisdom.-Motherpeace Round Tarot
