Stand Back

like everyone,
dievca has a lot going on right now

Master hasn’t been there for her,
He likes everything light and friendly

so dievca avoids sharing,
and digs in hard to stand up

that act of dominance
comes with a brusque wind


it also brings something else,
a F*ck you, F*ck me Attitude


which is not anyone’s fault,
it’s a form of protection

just be careful around dievca,
under the fire is … fragility

 

given time she’ll re-find her ladylike,
until then its Stevie Nicks and alcohol

 


Lyrics
No one looked as I walked by
Just an invitation would have been just fine
Said no to him again and again
First, he took my heart, then he ran

No one knows how I feel
What I say unless you read between my lines
One man walked away from me
First, he took my hand, take me home

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It’s all right, it’s all right
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
I would cry

Do not turn away, my friend
Like a willow I can bend
No man calls my name
No man came

So I walked on down away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than you could do
One man did not call
He asked me for my love
And that was all

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It’s all right, it’s all right
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
Standing in a line

So I walked on down the line
Away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than I could do
One man did not call
Well, he asked me for my love
That was all

Oh, Sh*t! Mercury in Retrograde

dievca is in a panic.
Sometimes,
Master and dievca have trouble communicating
in the best astrology scenario.
Mercury in Retrograde?
Oh, Shit!
Retrograde motion is an APPARENT change in the movement of the planet through the sky. It is not REAL in that the planet does not physically start moving backwards in its orbit. It just appears to do so because of the relative positions of the planet and Earth and how they are moving around the Sun.

Because Mercury rules communication, clear thinking, truth and travel — when the planet goes retrograde — all those things go backwards.
They start to get ugly and tangle up.

Mercury Retrograde in 2017
April 9 – May 3
August 12 – September 5
December 3 – December 22

7 Things to Avoid During Mercury Retrograde

1. Traveling—Expect last-minute flight cancellations, postponement and long delays. Allow extra time when traveling; make sure your bags are secure, re-confirm your reservations.

2. Repairing your car—If you can hold off – do it.

3. Purchasing computers or phones
—One word: Lemon.

4. Accepting or starting a job— During Mercury retrograde, things may not be as they seem. You might have thought you accepted one thing and actually got into another. Messy.

5. Scheduling meetings— Confusion, mistakes and cancellations will occur, try to schedule things after the retrograde.

6. Initiating new projects— People may either not understand it or oppose it.  You may find out later that you left out a vitally important detail that you didn’t think of. If your project is adopted, it may either fail or have to be totally restructured later to succeed.

7. Making agreements—Negotiating contracts, agreements or signing any legal documents—be mindful of whatever you put into writing, because it may need serious revision when Mercury goes direct. You may miss something in the details.

Again, the best advice! wait until Mercury goes direct…

Cuddling – it’s not just about oxytocin

Master and dievca’s best communication occurs when they are cuddling.back-rub

Why?

Cuddling Helps You Communicate Better

Most people want to feel understood, and communication is the vehicle by which they transmit understanding and empathy. Non-verbal communication can be a powerful way to say to your partner, “I get you.” Cuddling is a way of saying, “I know how you feel.” It allows us to feel known by our partner in ways that words can’t convey.

dievca’s dilemma

communication-breaking-downYou tell someone a piece of information and they base their expectations on that data. Then the data changes, but you don’t share the changes because you are in your own World.

So, it seems that on three different instances you have lied and you made no effort to hide the lies. Who is at fault?

Did you lie?
Does that person have a right to feel ill-used?

Or is it just miscommunication?
Or was the information held back on purpose, a Freudian Slip?

Does it become worse if that person needed you?
But what if they didn’t tell you, they needed you?

dievca’s dilemma.
