Medicine Wheel

Several of you yesterday wanted to know where to go to find your animal sign on the medicine wheel. If you are interested - you can go HERE.


Here is a picture of the wheel that we started. I need to do a little more research on it because I think you continue to add to it for different seasons and occasions and such. The flags around the outside mark N, S, E and W. The closest flag in the picture (the white one) is the North direction.



Ironically, the ceremony that we did for the wheel was strangely reminicient of the wedding ceremony that Wayne and I wrote for our wedding. It was very much about the importance of circles and elements and harmony with nature. We didn't want a traditional ceremony - we wanted something that reflected US a little more so we wrote our own. Perhaps on our anniversary (April 29th) we will have our ceremony again at the wheel!

On another note - we made a coffee mug for our neighbor, Liz. She was kind enough to take a picture of it for us since we forgot. I thought it was cute. Mr. Man is really a great illustrator!!


The second moebius is DONE but I can't post pictures until after Christmas. Someone is getting it for a gift!!! Shhhhhhhhhh...........................

Salmon? That's my animal? Interesting. Is it ok if I prefer it broiled with a bit of lemon?

very cool, from my experience you do keep adding and changing things up for the seasonal attributes. I am a beaver , on the cusp of falcon...married to an owl, hmmm.

Cool wheel and great looking mug. Nice that your wedding ceremony was a personal one. I like that.

I'm an otter married to a brown bear. I'm Air; he's Earth. (And he TOTALLY keeps me grounded. I've been known to have my head in the clouds, know what I mean?) How do I find out what it all means?
