365 - Day 3

Sunday 3rd January 2010
Another relaxing day playing some good old family games. Boggle, LOTR Monopoly and LOTR Risk (guess who loves Lord of The Rings!) Zoe started reading her new books, The Twilight saga and amazingly actually enjoyed reading! Woo Hoo! Taking after my mum, Gemma and I are both big readers and we have always got a book or two on the go, but Zoe has never really liked reading. I have not wanted to force the issue and end up putting her off forever so it was lovely to see her with her head stuck in a book thorouhgly enjoying it! She spelt this out on the dining (usually craft) table with the Boggle dice and I thought this would be a great reminder in the years to come of the time Zoe enjoyed reading her first proper books!

I am Blue- it's not as bad as it sounds

You Are A Blue Girl
Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
