Short brief intro – This week I asked my friend Harley R. Pageot to provide the words and music for this week’s paintomancy instalment. I met Harley back in 2010/11 when I was graduated from OCAD and trying to find my way as an artist. I came across an ad somewhere online about submitting poster art to this group called Broken Arts. Harley was a co-founder of the group, but ultimately became the leader and very well organized organizer of all it’s events. After doing my first poster for them, I somehow got integrated into being a member of the group and started going to meetings and helping out at the events. I am so warmed to have been a part of that movement, being a part of the creative music scene in Oshawa and to be a part Broken Arts. Serious lasting connections were made and I am so thankful to have met the people I did through that time.
If you want to check out what Harley is up to these days, he is founder of Fallen Love Recordshttp://fallenloverecords.com/ where you can find events that are happening. And he also has an Etsy store where he sells excellently written zines about his interests and personal life https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/harleyrpageot?ref=l2-shopheader-name
He’s also a future author! You can find him on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, give him a follow!

Choose a word, and scroll on down to find your corresponding fortune. And I highly recommend listening to your song medicine! a fine choice selection by Harley!
If you chose 1. Nonchalant
1. Nonchalant. Hey smooth sailor, you’ve been here before haven’t you? Strutting around like nothing effects you or affects you. That’s ok. However, preventative measures are never a bad thing and the minor embarrassment it might cause you far outweighs the dire circumstances of something left uncaught. What runs in the family genetically is something you may want to pay attention to and don’t be naive into thinking that it does not effect you and that you are above that. It’s ok to be afraid of truths, afraid of facts, but don’t get caught up in what it means. Sickness does not make you a weak person, but denial however, will make you sicker. You deny and ignore any bits of information that might be useful to you, you’re just going to delay something that might need more immediate attention. It’s up to you ultimately what you decide, but what is dignity but a mere social stance, an image we try to bear to hide a weakness or a vulnerability. We love to idolize others so much and in turn we wish for ourselves to have that same sort of treatment. To make a mark. But how much of it matters, how much of yourself are you sacrificing on this principle? What are you putting off to check because you are afraid of a little embarrassment? What are you afraid of facing or admitting to? Now, I would bet that digging into these seemingly uncomfortable places, investigating, would be very beneficial right now and that letting go of an idea of how you hold yourself in some regard will be the hardest thing to do. Ultimately, letting go of that already shifting idea, I bet will be really freeing for you. Take a chance, you’re only a human meat sack after all. *wink*

If you chose 2. Obsequious
2. Obsequious. A gentle inquiry; how is you? what is you? What you are now has nothing to do with what you were and what you might have been. Be gentle, you tender flesh flame. You stand alone feeling. Feeling your feelings, feeling your body, all the organs surrounding your skeleton frame. You have mild aches, a yearning for something fresh. New light shines a different ray, casts a different shadow, refracts a different scattering of rainbow beams. Humour your beats as you try out different drums. Play and then play some more. Any odd and delightful opportunities come your way, say yes to them. No time to be suspicious and judgmental, no. Enter into new things with a sense of wonder, with an explorer’s eye. You’re the Indiana Jones of your world out on an adventure, out to get that relic and jump through all sorts of boobie traps. Happy Mercury Retrograde ~ expect things to get silly and be ok with it, as you have no control over it anyways. I imagine you will find some interesting artefacts along the way. Prepare to be unprepared as some interesting things come along your way.

If you chose 3. Cascading
3. Cascading. Silent violence, silent scream, urging to get out. Caught in a nebulous bubble. Caught in an endless fall against beliefs. Waves ripple, adhere to the nipple to suck some life from that hateful teat you resent. It gives you some sustenance but barely. You want to chew it off, spit it out and bury it. So much hate bubbling inside, your teeth grind at something and you may not even notice. You are under the grind of doing what you think you should, wearing that layer thin, taking in empty, nutrient-less waste. Hate feelings then turns into desperate tears, like trying to run on empty fuel, the energy sputters out what’s left is a release, a mad cry, a wondrous waterfall. My dear, be kind to yourself. Know what you are feeding yourself and what’s harming you. What belief systems are you adhering to that’s making your jaw clench? what foods are you eating that’s lacking colour and nutrients? Lastly, what are you taking in from social media, your social networks that is not serving you? For the good of your health, let it go.
