Hermiting and healing

Hermit, Tower and Renewal

I drew this trio this morning, with a throbbing wisdom tooth erupting from my gums. That is exactly how it feels, very Tower-like actually. I saw the dentist last year and was told it’s best to try to retain it as it is getting used, and will most likely only flare up occasionally. I guess today is the lucky occasion 🙂

So I am having some Hermit time and pouring clove essential oil over it to numb it when it gets too much. Fingers crossed it will start subsiding in a couple of days like it did last time. I am very impressed with my dentist though, he’s a bit unconventional which is great. Despite the pain now and then, I’d rather retain most of my teeth too 🙂 He even managed to save what would normally be a root canal job, doing a superb crown job for which I happily paid $1700…

Tower Sure looks like a wisdom tooth experience to me. Ugh.

So today I’m just trying to lie in the sun and not do much. I have a stomach ache as well, just to enrich the experience. At least there’s Renewal, or healing, in the end: there’s a light at the end of the tunnel for sure.

I’m amusing myself by watching the antics of the Australian Ibis, who seemed to have taken quite the liking for our garden. Possibly because we have no cats or dogs or snakes or dingoes roaming about.

... and then there was one again. Perched nicely on the spare clothes line (we use it in summer as shade for the vege patch and hang shadecloth off it).

Update for the astro fans: I checked what is going on with my birth chart, and I have tranisting Mars and Jupiter (both conjunct) exactly opposite my natal Venus in Capricorn, Capricorn being the sign that rules teeth. Pluto is also not far off my natal Venus too, about 3 degrees away, but I think it’s Mars that is the root cause here, excuse the pun.

    Ouch!!!!!

    Sorry about that. Sounds very unpleasant. I’ve had lots of weird things with my teeth. I had braces twice (for almost ten years total, and I still have a cross-bite) and I had two oral surgeries, and yadda, yadda…

    I think I had my wisdom teeth pulled. I love that your dentist is unconventional. I really want to go to a biological/natural dentist but they are ungodly expensive and I have no money. I mean, we’re talking thousands…sometimes tens of thousands!!! Maybe some day. Everything is so expensive here, well…especially medical stuff. That’s part of why I love holistic medicine. I don’t agree with many conventional/western medical practices. Some I find downright wrong/barbaric. Anyway…sorry…got a little hot around the collar.

    Sending you lots of healing. Hope the flare up dies down quickly.

    Hugs,
    MM

    Argh, I had a wisdom tooth do that for years. It finally came in completely, and is shifting slowly down to fill in where I had a tooth pulled last year. Maybe that’s what they were intended to be: spares! 😉 Hope it settles down soon.

    Love the ibises!

    I love this deck, if I could only have one this would be it. And that is saying a lot, I love all my decks! We have great blue herons here, who perch on our fence devising ways to get at the neighbors carp pond…
