The Fool and a Little Poached Egg Divination
The Fool is popping, literally flying out of my deck like the madman he is. Chinese New Year and a deliciously dark moon weaves mysterious energy left, right and center. The last 48 hours feel quite primordial!
Last night, I was hired to read Tarot at a party. Tarot reading offers me the excuse to dress up and slip into velvet evening like a vampire. Were it not for this job I have, I would hardly don smoky eyes, dramatic clothes and saunter into downtown clubs at midnight. Tarot offers me the excuse to look into the eyes of handsome bartenders and comment on the state of their love lives. In case I’ve never mentioned it before – I love my job!!!!!
Every single client I read for last night was in the midst of a new beginning. The Fool emerged time and again confirming this. My husband pulled out the Fool for his week ahead and I drew The Fool this morning.
Traces of pink splashed skyward and lengthening days – a reminder spring is creeping closer. The Barack Obama Administration confirms an optimistic start. Regeneration and new beginnings surround us.
So, in lieu of all this fresh Fool energy, I tried something new this morning. A little Egg Divination as I set about making my favorite breakfast: Poached Eggs nestled atop Herbed Field Greens, Serrano Ham and English Cheddar on Whole Grain English Muffins.
Poached Egg Divination:
To poach an egg, bring a pot of water to a boil. Crack egg into a cup and gently add to pot of water, letting it cook for 60 seconds. While the egg cooks, bits of egg white fly around the bubbling, boiling water, like a swirling, twirling mass of mini ghosts. Close your eyes for a moment or two and clear your mind. Open and gaze into the churning water with a soft focus and see what images rise to the surface! You can even ask a question beforehand. I got a lovely message!
Finish off by preparing your favorite poached egg dish. To make mine, blanch your ham (use any type ham you like) in the boiling water before cooking your eggs. Then assemble, toasted muffin first, top with slice of cheese, ham, pile of field greens and finish it off with your egg. Don’t forget crushed pepper and sprinkling of course sea salt!
Now, if you want to nurture the people your life, you must first begin by nurturing yourself! Confirming a new beginning and preparing yourself beautiful meal is a wonderful way to honor yourself.
Do I wish I were sleeping at The Four Seasons while room service knocked on the door with this breakfast? Absolutely! But until I’m lounging in Four Season’s linen bed, I’ll go ahead and prepare a marvelous breakfast for myself!
Honor your fresh start and treat yourself to something fantastic today!
