Thank God Thanksgiving is over.
My children are back in school. Yay! I had started some magickal work before the holiday and I had to stop because I didn't have enough time to do it properly. Now I can finally get back to it.
I did manage to finish spinning the cords.
I finally settled on honesty as the theme for John's cord. They have talked about getting married several times but he keeps hedging about setting a date. I decided he needs to admit what is bothering him. Until he names the problem it will remain unaddressed. After the problem is in the open, they can either work through it, or break up and move on. I'm not trying to make them marry or break up, but I don't think either will be happy if they can't say what's on their minds. I used the green cord to make Baby Sister more responsible. I think this is main issue- she doesn't maintain anything in her life. I believe she thinks John should take care of her and he thinks they should both contribute equally to the relationship. I thought about these things as I spun the cords, then I ran the finished cords though my fingers as I pictured them evolving into better people. I used a loose knot to tie the cords together. I didn't get a good picture, but the knot is equal, just two loops holding together with the ends free. I didn't want either of them bound too tight. I added some stars because I think John needs some luck.
This weekend was hell. My in-laws created an excessive amount of drama and after the way Baby Sister acted I didn't want to give her a damn thing. I almost threw the cords in the trash. But, I decided if I did that she'd never grow up and I don't want to deal with a drama queen for the rest of my life. So I'll give her this necklace for Christmas and I pray to the Goddess that it starts working as soon as she puts it on.
