Ganesha postcard flew off the wall again, sure sign obstacles are being removed – PDQ.

Fly buzzing me yesterday evening, over and over right in my face.  It’s not fly season, maybe the wind blew him in. Previous Uranian fly totem post here.

Serious winds of change happening last few days, major wind gusts out of the south all morning that suddenly switched to out of the north in the afternoon.

You can check here for wind divination, is interesting.

Swan sighting on my lake that sent me and the neighbor outside to in the early am to gawk.  I have lived on this lake for over 10 years and have seen swans twice.


This lovely white fellow is a juvenile tundra swan.

Swan totem:
To the Greeks, the swan was the bird of Apollo.
Apollo, the god of music, was associated with the swan because of the mythic belief that the swan would sing with exquisite beauty at the point of death–the swan song.

The Greek love goddess Aphrodite had three bird familiars: the dove, swan, and goose. A sixth century B.C.E. statue shows her standing on a giant swan; in one hand she carries a sacred casket, symbol of her secret knowledge of death and rebirth. In another terra cotta image, Aphrodite sits on a throne made of two swans.

Hindu deities often interchanged the goose and the swan, which represented breath and spirit. How cool is that ?!  The swan was a mount for the goddess Sarasvati and sometimes Brahama. The heavenly nymphs, called the apsaras, were often portrayed as swans. The goddess Devi rides a swan that wears a necklace.

Several Celtic folk legends tell of the mystical sacred swan. Its feathers were used in ritual cloaks by the Bards since swans are connected with music and song. People who shape-shifted into swans were identified by gold or silver chains around their necks.

Norse legend also speaks of this shape-shifting as one form which the Valkyries could take; they were called swan maidens. As an alchemical symbol, the swan stood for Mercury. 
How about that Mercury conjunct Uranus !
Swan + flight + surprise messages !

Magickal attributes: Aid with the interpretation of dream symbols, transitions; spiritual evolution. Developing intuitive abilities; seeing into the future. If a swan is seen in meditation, pay close attention to hunches and omens. Divination on a spiritual level.
YaY !

The white swan is the sign of the white goddess and beauty. If this sign appears to you, plan on gliding to new heights with freedom and grace. A black swan can allude to the inner mysteries of life and to your intuition.

Among birds, for example, the White Swan represents the North direction, the first power of Creation, which is the Wind. The color white represents purity, strength, wisdom, and old age.

The swan is one of the most powerful and ancient of totems. This is reflected even in its name. It is one of the oldest names in the English language, and it has come down un-changed since Anglo-Saxon times.  Swans also mate for life. (source)
