Lovely evening meows, my Sunday Kittens... storms poured rain earlier and brought in the cooler temps... now, the sky is a clear bright blue and the Kougaress’s green, green jungle is happily growing thicker and ever higher. So far, her volunteer tomato plants are surviving, even growing.
Wow! As the Kougar continues to play catch up on internet it was a magickal day of synchronicity... so many occurrences this Big Cat’s mind is utterly boggled by it all, and has come to the conclusion that the magickal powers of ye olden times, of ancient times is asserting itself as the dominant force... yep, the Force is telling technology to take a backseat... no, not immediately... however, the small ripples are increasing everyday and the tsunami is coming. More and more magick abounds around us All.
There was a time on Earth where magick prevailed as the Force to be reckoned with ~ the tales of King Author are a prime example... yep, magick was all real for the most part back then. Sure, yeah, there was also fraud, and con artists just like they exist in this day and age... but the Kougaress digresses.
Because these mystical ‘frequencies’ were misused by those of evil intent, materialism was allowed to supercede the supernatural by means of science and technology... now, that materialism has become the evil force intent on enslaving us, on diminishing us all... one obvious example, the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster... magick is making a Superstar’s return... all aspects of this art and force are on the rise along with the Soul Rising that is taking place as we emerge into the Aquarian Age... intuition, psychic abilities, the power of prayer and the use of mass consciousness frequencies to create a heaven on ‘paradise Earth’ become stronger every moment... who we are as magickal creations and magickal beings is being summoned forth... look around, look for the magick, notice the surge in your own abilities.
No, technology is not being eliminated, it is merely being put in its proper place in the whole cosmic scheme of things.
The second book in the Kougar’s World of the Blue Pearl Moon series is titled Pleasures of Blue Lotus Oil... okay, it’s partially written and was put on hold to pen HER INSATIABLE DARK HEROES... perhaps, this was all in magickal divine order given what this Big Cat author learned today about properties of Blue Lotus Oil from Mary Lomando, who was William Henry’s guest. The cool blue news ~ this was the very direction moi had taken ‘blue lotus oil’ in Baron Zaggry and Lady Sheridan’s love story.

Mary Lomando approaches the ancient Egyptian sciences with a new vision. For example, how did the Egyptians use essential oils to increase energy, and what is the secret of the blue lotus? And what can modern science tell us about the amazing powers of Frankincense? Jungian analyst and astrologer Mary Lomando leads tours to Egypt and has spent much time there doing deep research.

Animals and Native American Totems
While I'm not Native American, their beliefs and views strongly influence my writing and own life choices. I believe everyone has an animal totem or spirit guide that is theirs to call.

An Exciting Time to be Indie!

“More and more, you will see books and publishing ventures aimed at very specific niches.”

I was indie when indie wasn’t cool, as the song says (well, it says something like that).
Hey, Big Cat authors and animal lovers... what did we have in common with the folks in Medieval times?
Medieval People and Their Pets

In the Middle Ages women and men often doted on their pets. In York Minster, there is a portrait of the lap dog of Lady Margaret Roos, rendered in stained glass.
Shapeshifter and Big Cat lovers, here’s some intriguing info... a story from Reuters...
Scientists use Calvin Klein cologne to lure jaguars
Wed Jun 9, 9:29 pm ET
GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters Life!) – Biologists tracking jaguars in the Guatemalan jungle might smell nice but it's all in the name of science, with researchers finding the Calvin Klein cologne Obsession for Men attracts big cats.
Biologists Rony Garcia and Jose Moreira from the Wildlife Conservation Society's (WCS) Jaguar Conservation Program say they use hidden cameras as a primary source for observing and tracking jaguars in Guatemala's Maya Biosphere Reserve.
But they also rely on Obsession for Men, a cologne known for its complex scent, to help lure then research and hopefully ultimately preserve jaguars in the Central American country.
"The method we are using to study the jaguars here in Guatemala is a non-invasive method which is based on photographing the individuals by using camera traps," Moreira told Reuters Television.
"It has been very useful using Obsession (for Men) to get the jaguars in front of these camera traps ... and that allows us to estimate with greater confidence the genders and the numbers that live in each studied site."
The discovery that Obsession for Men acted as a magnet for jaguars was the result of an experiment by the WCS's Bronx Zoo in New York.
The WCS was looking for ways to get cheetahs in front of camera traps, and, after several years of testing with different fragrances, found spraying the musky Obsession For Men near the heat-and-motion-sensitive cameras drew the cats for longer than other scents.
They also tried out about 23 other fragrances but Obsession for Men kept the cats' attention for longest with Nina Ricci's L'Air du Temps coming second.
The practice made its way down to Guatemala, where Garcia and Moreira said they have been recording similar success in the wild since 2007, allowing them to track jaguars and even record their mating rituals.
Garcia said the results will be invaluable to conservation efforts.
"These camera traps help us to identify how many jaguars are living in this area ... (and) helps us to have control over the population and lets us say to the government, to the public, that Laguna del Tigre still deserves conservation," he said.
The WCS said it tentatively plans to expand the use of the cologne in programs in Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador in coming years.

From Astrology.com ~ Mercury in Gemini
On June 10, Mercury flies effortlessly into its own sign Gemini to stay there until June 25. Be prepared for heady times ahead. Mercury loves to chat, moves around restlessly and has a tendency to scatter its energy and focus. Gemini has the same inclinations ~ better at breadth than depth and is known to be the master of multi-tasks.
Be prepared to disengage from minutia, since this is not the time to the time to slog on conscientiously at specialized tasks requiring attention to detail. Everyone will be skimming the surface, running to keep up with themselves and possibly going round in circles at times. Stepping back once in a while to see the broad picture will help, as will making lists so that nothing vital gets forgotten. This is a time to give freedom to your mind since this transit brings about greater mental flexibility and curiosity.
The following day, June 10, will be a day of high enthusiasm and great ideas. Mercury is in an easy sextile (60 degrees) to morale-boosting Jupiter and inventive Uranus. This is the perfect time for the seeds of new plans to be sown and acted on promptly, although you should be prepared to wait until June 12 or later for approval when Mercury squares pernickety Mars in Virgo. There will be differences of opinion and a few hot comments spilling out. But the challenge will force you to sort out what's workable and what needs thrown to one side as idle dreams.
Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~ from the Flash Cat...
Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 531 ~
Sylva felt total comprehension elude her. ‘The future of Earth?’ she asked as she focused on the comings and goings of the inhabitants from the various structures, all of them male. They appeared much like humans in their movements, yet also different. They carried themselves more majestically and seemed to be larger in stature. Their garments appeared to be a luminous, almost silvery fabric and were faithful to their Herculean physiques. ‘The Green People, as you think of them, phase themselves and their city close to your Earth dimension. They align themselves to the era of time they desire.’
Zeke recalled every Native heritage sun ceremony he’d ever attended, and especially those he’d participated in, once he came of age at twelve. Speaking gratitude to the sun and listening to the Father’s message had profoundly influenced his spirit and, thus, his life. “The time has come to communicate with Father Sun at a new spiritual level.” His dad clasped his shoulder in his usual caring manner. “Yep, son, the solar flares from the awakening of our sun must be redirected with our Like Thought.” Absently, Zeke nodded. “Right, dad. It’s part of the Silver Sun Prophecy.” Staring, he realized.
