Acorns and the Witch

Hello from Acorn Oakmist,
one of my humans just found a Broom Hilda comic chock full of Acorn Humor!
Seems she was lonely and someone told the squirrels she had acorns in her socks.
This resulted in her being surrounded by enamoured squirrels.
I love it.
Just be aware that I fit in no-one's socks, thank you very much.

Your result for The Angel Test...


So you need Healing (50%), Knowledge (60%), Inspiration (60%), and Strength (56%)?

Archangel Raphael is the Angel of intellect, creativity, healing, joy, courage and hope. This Angel will bring guidance and sustenance to anyone feeling lost, whether physically, emotionally or spiritually. He is called "The Illuminator," because he provides a "Torch of Angelic Light" to help humans light their way through life so they can more effectively avoid hurdles, overcome challenges with less effort, and see the opportunities and spiritual rewards that lay ahead. He encourages self-motivation in becoming who we’re meant to be, and reminds us to seek truth in all we say and do. As we light our way into the future, a sense of courage will naturally come to us.

Students as well as teachers are in good hands if Raphael is watching over them. He inspires a heightened creative visualization and allows us to better focus on a particular activity to achieve a specific goal. Raphael is the Patron Angel of doctors, scientists, writers, and anyone working in the field of endeavour in the liberal arts or sciences. Being the leader of the Angels of Healing, Raphael offers cure of all kinds for humans, animals, and nature. He is a protector of children, and that goes for your inner child, too. He teaches us to laugh easily, and to enjoy life. Raphael is said to be the friendliest and funniest of all the Angels.

A Bit of Trivia:

Raphael is one of the four greatest Archangels, the other three being Michael, Gabriel, and Uriel. His symbols are the healing hands and the Caduceus, a winged staff intertwined with two snakes, which can be seen on the signs of pharmacies and hospitals. He is the Angel of Mercury, and thus the ruler of Wednesday, the day of learning and travelling. He corresponds with the Wind signs, Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra. Raphael can be seen on the Tarot card Key 6 – the Lovers, which symbolizes our three layers of consciousness, with the man being the conscious, the woman being the sub-conscious, and the angel being the super-conscious.

Acorn Moon

The moon was orange last night. Smoke from a faraway forest fire made the afternoon sun look lower in intensity. The full moon rose, a harvest moon, looking just like our Very Favorite Orange Cat.

So we promptly named it the Acorn Moon. It fits the season, too -- acorns are being dropped everywhere by helpful trees.

A Message from Acorn

Nothing profound. I just want to put officially on the record that I had NOTHING
to do with Elfstone's abscess. Nothing at all.
