One October

‘I am a woman seeking a moss covered cottage deep in the forest surrounded by fae folk and botanical gardens where I can bake bread in bliss’ ~ (Ellie Twitters)


In Numerology

October Represents ‘ONE’

Meaning: Original. Independent. Unique. Innovative.


Stop dilly dallying

Too many of us have tried to tone ourselves down for family and friends, only to later learn that we are suppressing the best things about ourselves.

This is the right time to begin.

Close your eyes and take three deep breaths, exhaling slowly. Stay focused and then write your intention for your new beginning. Know that this is part of your life purpose.


You might mingle with the world, but you know that there’s no other joy, like the joy of being your unique self. There are people who will love you for it.

Your challenge this October will be your lack of self esteem, self-consciousness and the struggle to believe in your higher self. You know what you are capable of, be determined and have courage ~ even when you doubt yourself.


The Spark of Spirit

The number One symbolises the spirit at the centre of all things. The French say it is ‘l’esprit de coeur’ The spirit of the heart. The vital pulsating imprint of beginning energy, which penetrates all things which are about to be brought into reality.

Your mantra should be:

‘If it is to be, its up to me’


Cosmic Connection 

This October, (2022) in Numerology, you will be influenced by the intensity of the Universal Month of Seven: Meaning: Retreat. Reflection. Evaluation.


Throw on your soft snuggly blanket and pay attention to your inner quest. It’s a call to know yourself and life better, in the deepest way. Don’t get into power struggles, build on something enduring. 


‘Women don’t ask for much, we just want autonomy, equality, respect, several jewelled crowns, 3 yoke of oxen, seven small, or one large dragon, a pack of obedient wolves and pockets in every garment.’ ~ Unknown

It doesn’t matter how much factual research is shown, the livestock industry commission their own chosen researchers to falsely disprove any negative research that threatens their industry. They are just not prepared to listen.

While there is big money in agriculture and pest control, our wildlife and the environment are the losers.


The Dingo was sacred and a prized possession to indigenous people

Both their lives were changed with settlement. They had only two choices, to live in exile or to die.


Why we need Dingoes and they need us


An Icon in Peril


NASA’s Dingo Encounter




‘The effects dingoes have on the environment have been captured in 32 years of NASA satellite imagery along Australia’s 5600km dingo fence.


The Dingo plays an important role in the Australian ecosystem. As an apex predator they have helped to shape the Australian landscape and have traditionally kept pest and other predatory species in check. This has faltered since the arrival of non-Indigenous people, as many have viewed the Dingo itself as a pest species. In response to the imagined threat non-indigenous Australians have unnecessarily killed hundreds of thousands of Dingoes in order to protect their livestock.

For every Dingo shot or poisoned with bait, a dozen or more Foxes will take their place, causing significantly greater damage to livestock and to the environment.

Many Creation Stories speak of the importance of the Dingo. Their story plays out as a constant companion to Koori people, an important aid in hunting, a friend to those who have been exiled and a warning system against intruders.

‘In response to the imagined threat non-indigenous Australians have unnecessarily killed hundreds of thousands of Dingoes in order to protect their livestock. For every Dingo shot or poisoned with 1080 bait, a dozen or more Foxes will take their place, causing significantly greater damage to livestock and to the environment’



The Dingo Gap

‘The NASA scientists had mapped the surface of Mars into quadrangles, and named the locations after sites on Earth with a similar ancient geology or rock formations. Dingo Gap is named after a location near the remote Kimberly quadrangle in Western Australia.


So, in contemporary celestial narrative, a valley on the Martian landscape is named after the Australian NATIVE dog; the Dingo, that thrived for thousands of years in one of the most extreme environments on Earth’ ~

It is the Dingo who has taught me to go about my work,

Sacredly, Secretly, and Silently_______

Welcome to the world our darling Sassy Rose,
innocent eyes, sticky up ears and cute bud nose.
Your puppy paws, won’t take too long to grow, 
so here’s some things, that you ought to know.

We promise to protect you, as all families do, 
our bond is love and we’ll always be true.
To know what your future will be, 
don’t listen to propaganda, just follow me_______ 

You’re here to clean up the humans mess,
shonky deals, that they won’t confess. 
It’s up to you to keep our wildlife safe,
from invaders, brought into our natural place. 

Your purpose is to defend Ozzy wildlife folks, 
you must keep them safe and give them hope. 
Eliminate feral cats, foxes, rabbits and goats,
and beware of the killer men in white coats. 

You’re precious to your indigenous friends;
but on those sneaky colonials, don’t depend. 
It is a wicked thing those aliens will bring, 
millions of lethal 1080 bombs, they’ll fling. 

No creatures are safe, from the toxic fallout, 
listen to our packs, howl, cry and calling out. 

and one last thing, before I go____, 

’You must learn fast, dear Sassy Rose, 
a human’s treasure is only silver and gold.
as our Australian outback is growing cold. 

Soon it will be too late, but now, heed this warning:
You’ve been told’

“Scientific research has identified the dingo as crucial to land and wildlife conservation, ecosystem health and resilience.” ~ Tim Mullany (Manager of West Coast Wildlife Park )

‘It might surprise some to know the iconic animals are considered no different to wild dogs and can be killed or trap the animal without permission’ ~ WA Dingo Association. 

“Western Australia has some of the purest populations of dingoes in the country and they’re very rare and they have a vital role in the environment and they’re going to be damaged or killed.”

Each of these species and organisms work together in ecosystems, like an intricate web, to maintain balance and support life.

‘Dingoes are being trapped, poisoned, shot and hung up as trophies on fences and in trees’



Dingoes are grossly misrepresented, misunderstood and heavily persecuted, by wool and livestock vested interests Australian Wool Innovation Meat & Livestock Australia,  supported by many well-funded ‘ecologists’ and government funded ‘charities’ with large marketing budgets; Centre for Invasive Species Solutions PestSmart by Centre for Invasive Species Solutions  with the objective of ‘managing’ Dingoes as agricultural ‘pests’. The ‘ecologists’ involved in Dingo ‘pest control’ are responsible for researching the cheapest and most effective methods to eradicate Dingoes from the landscape. The well funded, widely supported, heavily promoted and coordinated mass extermination program of Dingoes is known as the #NationalWildDogActionPlan #NWDAP. The most commonly used method of killing Dingoes en masse is aerial baiting with meat baits laced with 1080 poison.

Are We Mad?

Image: New Zealand Arawhata. 1080 drop in 2013 which used THIRTEEN helicopters.

Are We Mad?
Helicopters wop, wop overhead,
Millions of bombs, drop bloodshed.
Devoid in shelter, spray floats round,
as dead carcasses, rot on the ground.

The risk’s, far greater than the cure,
but poison cartel sponsors endure. 
For each wild animal, native’s are lost,
the environment pays irreparable cost.

It makes me sad, it makes me sick,
this apocalyptic, chemical killing blitz.
As the crow flies high in the distance,
‘secondary poisoning’ is persistent.

Family pets, ingest the lethal baits, 
this genocide, does not segregate.
As the insects crawl from their holes,
wait, which way are they going to go?

Parroting the same dubious data;
scheming, since 1996 and thereafter. 
The paymasters seemingly agreed, 
‘confuse with propaganda and degrees’ 

Under the blue, free fall of the sky,
clouds of deadly toxin 1080 fly. 
In the polluting of nearby waterways,
you bet, future generations will pay. 

Wild places should be wild havens,
not man-made poisoning activations. 
Through our veins with each heartbeat;
pulse’s the destruction of every species.

If I could talk for the Animals

These baits are extremely attractive to our dogs. There is no antidote.

Any animal who ingests 1080 suffers an excruciatingly painful death.

Natives take the bait.

No species is immune.

“Mr. Fox, sir, I won’t do it. I can’t say it. I won’t chew it.” ~ Dr Seuss

Are we mad?

It’s time that Australia catches up with the rest of the world and bans 1080.


Coalition of Australians Against 1080 Poison

Collateral Damage

Together we can, but we need your help

‘Compound 1080 was originally developed as a rat poison in Nazi controlled territory in the 1940’s and some research indicates that the Nazis considered using it to kill people in Holocaust death camps, before deciding it was too dangers for guards’ ~ Brooks Fahy…/f4103ea0-4390-4c34…/

But, let’s not forget introduced pests did not ask to come to Australia – their presence in Australia is ‘man-made’

Western Australia declared state too dangerous for dogs outdoors.

Numerology Matters


‘This is a good month, to wander into the forest, only to come back with antlers, a thousand yard stare and the ability to speak to the earth’  ~ (Odysseyeight)


Tarot Card for September:

Key 9: The Hermit

Meaning: Solitude. Contemplation. Introspection.


Inhale Confidence

Exhale Doubt


We are not machines. 

It’s okay to step away from the hustle and bustle of the world.


Why is it so hard to hear our own inner voice?

Some people have lost their sense of silence. In fact they can’t face silence. They keep themselves busy doing something or the other. It may be work or during leisure it may be surfing net, chatting, watching TV, playing games on mobiles or computers, reading, gossiping and so on.

We don’t always need to be productive and on the go at all times. Maybe it’s because we haven’t  learned to trust our inner wisdom that we automatically look outside ourselves for answers____ Words, words, words, words, words_______ blah, blah, blah



You could read pages of suggestions here, but none will be as important, as ‘your own words’ are to You. Never underestimate the power of the silence.

For this I am grateful.


This is the message of ‘The Hermit’, who looks for the invisible and listens within to discover his own path. 


The Hermit stands alone on the top of a mountain.

Times out.__________

Summing up September

Image: Ivan Pili, 1976

Be all in, or get all out, there is no halfway

In Numerology

September is a significant month, representing ‘NINE’

Meaning: Completion. Regeneration. Revelation. Patience. Compassion.

The Humanitarian.



You are in the final reckoning, make it count_______


Today, as you plan your next steps, be sure you have everything you need and nothing you don’t. Sort out issues, clear the decks, finalise projects, or chores that need completing. Nine is a testing number. Hopefully you’ll have consolidated important things over the last nine months. Free yourself from associations and situations that are no longer necessary.


Déjà Poo

‘The feeling that you’ve been through that crap before’


Blast from the Past

Stop looking for happiness in the same place you lost it. Look back and see what was happening for you nine months ago. Know your own worth and count your blessings. Then, think about what is not serving you positively. Letting go is hard, but struggling to hold on is harder. It’s time to prepare for a new beginning.


In Conclusion

Be patient with yourself, what you need right now is an open mind and the willingness to change if and when that seems right. Let go of overbearing expectations. Holding on to what is not working will stop you from pursuing what will actually fulfil you. However your greatest growth will come from compassion and forgiveness, not only for others, but more importantly, for yourself.


Celebrate your Strengths

You will be going through a transformation and in some respects breaking down in preparations, for the next nine month cycle. You may feel in limbo. Whether you realise it or not, delays are teaching you something and giving you the opportunity for reflection.

Take each day as it comes. Have faith that you will find your direction.



There is an unwritten rule that you must surrender to the universal order of all things and in doing so, you will receive rewards beyond your most imagined expectations. You are learning that you’ll have to give and expect nothing in return, in order to receive and that includes the love you desire.


Your mantra should be:

’Disappointments are turning points, not roadblocks’


Detoxing Your Life


This September, 2022, in Numerology, you will be influenced by the intensity of both the Universal Month and Year of:

Six: ~Family. Social Responsibility. Love. Compassion.


‘If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all’

Practice grace, empathy and understanding, but leave any dramas behind.  Don’t question things too deeply. Make sure you have plenty of family time this month. Focus on shared motives, feelings and reactions, rather than arguing points on principle. Handpick those you want to move on with, but let go of those who show you no love, loyalty, or respect.




LET GO______________

The Great Perfection

She was born of a Buddha mind,
her reputation, rare, sincere and kind. 
Divine, seal like, all knowing eyes,
deep brown and luminous, Oh my! 

Meeting all situations with ease,
her personality, eager to please. 
Loyal friend of Llamas in Tibet,
many sought, her love and respect.

‘Little Lion’, a companion, so true,
guarding and watching everything you do. 
Tiny legs, turning wheels of prayer,
following Llamist monks everywhere. 

Soft, sandy, white gossamer coat, 
If you’re lucky, on you she’ll dote.
Only 10 inches tall to her shoulder,
my greatest fear, she’s getting older. 

Our precious Zoonie, unique Tibalier,
I’m so grateful, you’re with me here.
With your Lions mane and plumed tail.
mostly Tibetan Spaniel traits prevail.

Our faithful child of Dzogchen perfection,
venerable as a worshipper in affection.
In our mirror of reflections and memories,
You are one of the greatest blessings to me.

Me: I am amazing at criticising myself.

Therapist: Sprays me with water bottle


In Numerology

August Represents ‘EIGHT’

Eight is the number of Power. Ambition. Financial rewards.


There is no better time than now! 



You are capable of amazing things. This is your time to be brave. Take a risk. Step into your own power. Focus on where you want to go and what you want to achieve. Get down to business – all manner of business. Whether it’s speaking to neighbours about their barking dog, paying taxes, or making investments. Take charge of your life and manage your financial affairs.

Money will flow towards you as long as you’re working for the good of all and not for personal profit. Hold your head high and never compare yourself to others. Your worth is indisputable and you don’t have to compete.


The secret of success is being constant to your purpose.

The reward is ultimately the satisfaction of a job well done.


It is not a time for extravagance or to get carried away with your emotions.

Understand your power and the connection to something larger in the universe.

Look at yourself in the mirror and be proud of who you are.


Your mantra for August should be:

‘Keep Shining.

It is your mission.

It is why you are here’


This August, 2022, in Numerology, you are influenced by the universal month of

Five: ~ Freedom. Change. Adventure.



This month’s combination might be called ‘Greased Lightening’ if you balance  your powers wisely. You will be highly charged by the ‘Five’ in the realm of ideas and communication and the ‘Eight’ in the worlds of business and finance.


Listen to your inner promptings______ 


‘The secret is here in the present.

If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it.

And, if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better.

Each day, in itself, brings with it an eternity’

Happy Birthday to meee…


Thank you for your birthday wishes, they really made my day!

My little puppy sister Lizzie and I, had an awesome doggy celebration.


We went on a sniff-ari, ate chicken, had lots of treats and I even had a birthday ice cream cake. (Mom said ‘calories don’t count on your birthday’)

Knowing that I have friends who appreciate and love me, is the best feeling.

I hope that even for a moment, I helped you see the world, through my eyes.

Love Zoonie xox

Zoonie and I talk in a language that only she and I understand. The language of ‘Older Dog’ love.  She is, in every way that matters, loved and appreciated as much my baby, as my own children. I feel very blessed to have had the gift of her companionship for the last 12 years.

Thank you Zoonie, my beautiful furry friend, for teaching me about the true meaning of life.
