“Moose symbolism is letting you know that you – and only you – have the authority to make your choices in life. Therefore, the Moose meaning insists that you do not need to feel ashamed or pressured in any way by your friends and peers. It is safe for you to make choices that are different from theirs. This spirit animal teaches you to stand loud and proud and own who you are! In other words, your individuality is your strength.
Alternatively, Moose symbolism reflects the fact that you should spend some time developing your self-esteem.”
It might seem strange that I chose an albino moose rather than a common brown moose. During my research, I encountered the story of the great white moose from Nova Scotia that was trophy hunted by some good old boys. I used this moose to highlight the importance of the significance of albino animals.
According to an article by www.wide open spaces.com, “The aboriginal communities had been watching and were very aware of this specific animal for quite sometime. Years actually. "White animals" have a very significant role in their culture, as shared by Mi'kmaq hunter Danny Paul:
"We know the significance and we've been teaching that to the non-native population for almost 500 years -- about the importance that this and other white animals played in our lives," he said. "We are not to harm them in any way, shape, or form because they could be one of our ancestors coming to remind us of something significant that's going to happen within our communities."”
The hunters felt remorse and returned the hide, although they kept the head as their trophy. Trophy hunting MUST be stopped. This story stung my sole to its core and I wanted to tell the albino moose’s story to create awareness.
We had our first booth in Quartzsite this year! It was a strange year due to Covid but it was still fun.
We found what we thought was a huge chunk of Gem Dino Bone near Death Valley, CA on our way to Quartzsite. While there, we were able to slice it up with our new saw and identify it as Stromatolite, which is actually the oldest fossil on earth. It’s found commonly in Australia but is not common to the US. Ours has Dolomites and it phosphoresces.
After Quartzsite, we spent some time relaxing. We found Mojave Lake and did some paddle boarding.
We fed the ducks, cooters and geese. Some even ate from our hands.
We went to Las Vegas to check out the new Omega Mart Meow Wolf art experience. It was seriously brilliant!
Havana really enjoys van life! She loves being outside. Here she is in Death Valley, CA.
I uploaded some new chakra gem necklaces.
We found our way serendipitously to Lake Havasu City, AZ, my new favorite desert oasis. This is the London Bridge, which was bought by the town’s creator and reassembled piece by pice in 1971.
I hope everyone enjoyed this full moon in Cancer!
Love and light to everyone!
