Happy Valentine’s Day!

This morning my husband gave me my Valentine’s Day gift. It a story of true love and the famous artwork depicting a scene from the story. So on this day, which honors true love, I wanted to share the story with you.

Jupiter and Mercury came disguised as ordinary peasants, and began asking the people of the town for a place to sleep that night. They had been rejected by all, “so wicked were the people of that land,” when at last they came to Baucis and Philemon’s simple rustic cottage. Though the couple were poor, their generosity far surpassed that of their rich neighbors, among whom the gods found “doors bolted and no word of kindness.”

After serving the two guests food and wine (which Ovid depicts with pleasure in the details), Baucis noticed that, although she had refilled her guest’s beechwood cups many times, the pitcher was still full (from which derives the phrase “Mercury’s Pitcher”). Realizing that her guests were gods, she and her husband “raised their hands in supplication and implored indulgence for their simple home and fare.” Philemon thought of catching and killing the goose that guarded their house and making it into a meal, but when he went to do so, it ran to safety in Jupiter’s lap. Jupiter said they need not slay the goose and that they should leave the town. This was because he was going to destroy the town and all those who had turned them away and not provided due hospitality. He told Baucis and Philemon to climb the mountain with him and Mercury and not to turn back until they reached the top.

After climbing to the summit (“as far as an arrow could shoot in one pull”), Baucis and Philemon looked back on their town and saw that it had been destroyed by a flood and that Jupiter had turned their cottage into an ornate temple. The couple’s wish to be guardians of the temple was granted. They also asked that when time came for one of them to die, that the other would die as well. Upon their death, the couple were changed into an intertwining pair of trees, one oak and one linden, standing in the deserted boggy terrain.

Opening Doors

May 31st, 2016 by

thLast week, I was working with Feng Shui and cleaning my wealth area. As I was thinking about opening the doors to more prosperity, my eyes fell upon a small Anubis statue I have that came from Egypt. Anubis opens the doors to the underworld, so I thought maybe he could open some doors to my prosperity. I put the statue in my wealth area and said, “Mighty Anubis, as I have placed you in the wealth area of my home, may you open the doors to increasing the flow of money into my life with love, light, peace, and trust.”

The very next day, the lawn people came to cut our grass. While in the back yard, near the wealth area, one of the guys hit a rock. The rock flew and hit my sliding glass window, shattering it into a million pieces. When the gentlemen came with the replacement glass (that I did not have to pay for), he fixed the rollers in the door so the sliding glass door now moves more smoothly than it has in years.

Three days later, while in my kitchen (also located in the wealth area), the door to my oven fell off! The hinge was not the strongest and it chose that moment to fail. Now we are getting a new stove!

Yes, money flow has also increased; however, I feel Anubis wanted me to fix some of the things in my home to make the energy flow better. I got the message. This is typical of what Goddess puts me through.
