Reading for week 4, 25th to 31th of januari 2021

This reading ends the month of januari, and this week I’ve choosed to ask the Unicorns for guidance, using the Magical Unicorns oracle deck by Doreen Virtue. Here’s what they have to say for this week.

Cards for week 4
Cards for week 4

Monday to wednesday.

The first card is “Definitely Yes” and it says “The answer to your question is a strong “Yes!” “.
What you’re asking about will definitely happen, provided that you keep your thoughts positive. You can bring about your desires more quickly by paying attention to thoughts, feelings, words, or visions that repeat themselves for you. When the inner guidance asks you to take positive action, it’s important for you to do so. For instance, if you have strong feelings to call a certain person, then make that call. Your angels will always guide you to take actions that have positive and healthy effects on you and others.
This card asks you to set aside doubts or worries, and to feel that everything is positive. Your desires are going to happen, and probably in better-than-expected ways. Imagine that your dream has aalready come true, using your inner vision and your feelings as you do. You just need to stay filled with faith and hope, and take action when you’re guided.

Thursday and friday.

The second card is “Light” and it says “See the light within yourself and everyone else”.
Everyone has a beautiful light within them, no matter what they look like or how they act. This light is pure. The more you focus on the light witin others, the more you can help them be healthy and happy.
You can also protect your loved ones, yourself, and your belongings by imagining them surrounded by light. This card may mean that you or someone you love is in a situation with harsh energy right now, and they need extra spiritual protection. Imagine them in an eggshell covering of light in your favorite color. Or choose one of these: white light to protect, green light to heal and purple light for a better night’s sleep.
As you focus on seeing and feeling light within yourself and everyone, you’ll notice a positive change in your life. For example, people will treat you better, your family members will seem happier, and you’ll sleep better at night.

The weekend.

The last card for this week is “It’s Okay to Be Different” and it says “You don’t need to be like everyone else. You’re perfect just as you are!”
Everyone wants to be liked, so it’s normal that you want to fit in with other people. You may compare yourself with others and feel like you don’t belong. You may even feel that you’re not as good as other people. But this card is here to tell you that your special talents are needed in the world.
You don’t need to change in order to please others. If you try to be different from who you really are, you won’t be happy and you won’t make true friends. But if your inner voice tells you to improve yourself through learning new skills and taking care of your body, then you’re being good to yourself. This wilkl lead you to true friends who really love you as you are!
As long as you feel good about yourself, you’re doing well. The best way to do this is to tell the truth, treat people with kindness, keep your promises, and do the work you need to do. You needn’t be perfect, wear the latest styles, or be the most popular person. Just trust tha God made you exactly how you’re supposed to be, and make the very best of what you got!

Summary:

The Unicorns brings a light and good feeling with them for this week. Starting out the week with a big Yes feels very nice. Just remember to stay positive and keep your vision. Seeing the light in others might not be so easy always in a world thata feels harsh, but we can always protect ourselves and our loved ones by surrounding them with protecting light.
Lastly there’s a reminder to be okay to be different and do what you feel is right for you.
Feels like a nice ending to this first month of this new year!

Reading for week 3, 18th to 24th of januari 2021.

Already in to week 3 this year and time for another “prediction”. for the coming week. This time working with the Magick Path deck. Here’s the cards I got.

Cards for week 3
Cards for week 3

Monday to wednesday.

The first card is “Journey” and it says “Walking down Your Maternity Path consider that this is an ever evolving Journey”. We’re always on a journey and sometimes we start new ones, and the journey always evolves, taking new turns in our lives. Wether you start a new journey or already on a journey, remember it’s your journey. Make the most of it.

Thursday and friday.

The second card is “Words” and it says “Your Words are deeply connected to Your Inner Strength. Let the Dragon within You to Speak Your Power. The blue colour is connected to your throat chakra and you need that to voice your power. What you say to yourself and others is important and words have power.

The weekend.

The last card for this week is “Communication” and it says “Share! Communicate with others and let them know Your needs & desires”. This card beautifully connects to the previous card, and asks you to communicate. If you don’t speak out, no one will know what you need and desire. The answer to the unspoken question is always no. Speak your mind, and remember that you have the power within.

Summary:

Communication seems to be the key to take the steps you need to do your journey. Also remember where you’re heading even if the journey takes turns in other directions than you first expected.

Where are you heading?
What do you need to communicate this week?

More parts added and some painting done!

I added some boxes and whatnot to the rear and sides.

Parts added to the hull.
Parts added to the hull.

The part that covers most of the front is assembled earlier in the instructions, but either check the fit then or wait with the lower part to ensure it fits as it should on the lower part of the front. I had to break up mine and re-glue it.

The rear side

Continuing with some of the parts for the turret. Some of them got painted in the interior green.

In order to get the wheels on, I started to paint the lower hull and backside of the armor plates in the darker tan colour.

Need to do some touch up before using the lighter colours for toning/post shading.

Deciding colours for the Warrior.

I did a test with two different colours to tone the tropical tan with.

2 different tones

For me I think I prefer the lighter one of the two, and I will probably use that one. The choice was so clear I also painted some of the wheels as well.

I’ll see what the community have to say about my choice of colours.

I’ve also started to sort the hatches to cover up the interior when I start to paint. I’ll see if I can keep them in place with some blue tac while painting.

As soon as I’m sorted with covering all the openings, I can start painting the underside at least, so I can get the wheels and tracks in place.

Reading for week 2, 11th to 17th of januari 2021.

This year perhaps didn’t start as any of us wished for, or hoped for, and I guess it’ll take a while before people will feel somewhat safe. Meanwhile we can need some encouragement, and for that I asked Archangel Gabriel for some help, using the AA Gabriel oracle cards. This deck is for all birthgivers and creators or creative people, and we’re all creative, even if we don’t always see that. So here’s the advice I got for this week.

Cards for week 2
Cards for week 2

Monday to wednesday.

The first card is “Detox time” and on the card it says “Release toxins from your body, mind, and diet”. “As a creative individual, you may feel overwhelmed with sensitive feelings, so you turn to addictions to numb the intensity. This card comes to you aas a reminder that those feelings in the raw are inspiration for your greatest creations. In addition, an additive habit may be lowering your mood and vibrations by artificially inducing depression or anxiety.
You already know in your heart which substances or behaviors are detracting from your health and happiness. I could be consumption of weat, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, meat, diary or sugar. Call upon Heavens loving assistance to release unhealthful cravings so that you won’t struggle with your detox. You may be Devinely guided to human help to support your decisison to approach life with your heart open, your mind clear, and your body detoxified”.

Thursday and friday.

The second card is “Classes”, saying “learning and theaching are part of your higher calling”. “Higher education is, literally in your cards, with classes enhancing your skills and condfidence. This card guides you to reserach, and then enroll in, one or more classes related to your interests. Being in a learning environment stimulates your ideas and exposes you to new perspectives. Classes are also a wonderful place to meet new friends who share your passions.
In some cases, this card is a sign that you’ll be teaching classes as part of your messenger work. Pray for guidance as to the form your teaching will take. Know that Heaven will hold your hand and lead you to the forum and students who will benefit from your wisdom”.

The weekend.

The last card for the week is “Daily practice” saying “The more you practice your new skills, the more comfortable and comfortable you become”. “This card reminds you that the key to success is practice, practice, practice. If you’re procrastinating, it’s probably because of fears of doing something that’s not”perfect” in the beginning. Yet, the only way to improve is to commit time each day to your aspiration. Research shows that those who practice and study become the most proficient with their creative endeavors.
The reason for daily practice is to create a healthful new habit. When you become accustomed to creating every day – even if it’s just for a few minutes – you lose self.consciousness and become more confident about your work. You will also enjoy creativity more when you treat it like a natural part of your life, instead of like something that’s stressful, requiring work”.

Summary:

I can’t speak for everyone else but myself, but I can feel that after the holidays it’s time to get back to good eating habits, and feeling a bit down, I’ve felt the urge to buy something to make me feel happy. So some detox sure is needed, and it’s always good to detox once in a while. The next steps seems to fit together very well, take classes and practice your skills. There’s always something to improve, or it could be possible your task is to help someone else some new skill. For me courses and education lies on the horizon, so that’ll prove to be interesting.

Ask yourself, what habit do you need to change or what do you need to detox from?
Which skills do you need to improve, and where can you find the courses you need to take?
You can always ask for guidance if you need help figuring things out.

Colour test and tracks for the Warrior.

I tried 2 of the tropical tan colours on the armor plates.

Armor plates painted

It was hard to take a good picture and hard to tell the difference between the two colours.
One is slightly brighter, but that hardly shows in the pic. I’m thinking of using one of the slightly brighter colours to tone any of these, just to get that sand dusty look I’m after.

I put some gun metal colour on the tracks parts.

Tracks painted metal

I think I need to darken the tracks with some brownish colour and some rust perhaps.
The pads needs to be painted in rubber black as well.
I’ll need the tracks pretty soon to continue the build.

Progressing with the Warrior.

With internal armor plates painted and in place I could finally glue the upper hull in place.

The fit wasn’t entirely perfect, so I had to use some filler.

After the putty had been sanded down I could start to assemble the torsion arms. There is included some sort of jig to get the alignment right, but every arm is put in a slightly different position, so the jig only fit some of the arms. I saw no real use for it.

As i soon need to start painting, at least some of the parts, I need to figure which paint to use. I’ll ask my model building friends if any of these will do. If not I have to order new colours.

Next I’ll start with the parts to the tracks, so I can continue the build.

More assembly and some weathering on the Warrior interior.

While the colours were drying, I assembled a few other bits.

Some pieces sorted and partly assembled.

Lastly I painted primer/interior colour on some parts that go on soon plus the turret parts.

Those two plates go to the inside of the upper hull and can be positioned in two positions. Not sure which position to chose. They should also be painted green as the bottom interior.

Weekly reading for week 1, 4th to 10th of januari 2021.

I’m starting this year with my Angel tarot deck, asking the angels for advice seems like a nice way to start the year.

Cards for week 1
Cards for week 1

Monday to wednesday.

The first card for this week is “Knight of water” reversed, and it says “Falling in love, or wedding proposals. The need to balance emotions. An invitation to a social event”.
Deep emotions arising from situations or relationships impact your life. Falling in love or a wedding proposal is possible. You (or someone close to you) need to balance your emotions, lest you become overwhelmed. You may recieve invitations to parties or other social opportunities. Being reversed this can all be an internal journey. Perhaps you need to balance your emotions, or fall in love with yourself. Social events could be something nice happening online. There are many ways to connect.

Thursday and friday.

The second card is “Archangel Azrael/Release” and it says “The end of a phase or situation. Spiritual transformation. Time to move on”. This card signifies that it’s time to move on because this project or phase of your life is now complete. There’s no benefit in remaning in this situation. Instead, shake off the old and welcome the new! You may experience a sense of relief, or there may be some sadness. Either way it’s time to leave that which you’ve outgrown.
Take your time in adjusting to this change in your life. It’s not necessary to rush ahead. Be kind to yourself during this period of transition, and seek the support of friends and family.

The weekend.

The last card for this week is “Eight of earth” reversed, and it says “Skilled work is rewarded. Learning all there is to know about a topic. Going back to school”.
Your heart is in your work or studies. You’ve commited to learning about your career, vocation, or project. You’re definitely on the right track. Your dedication, skill, and talents are appreciated and will soon be rewarded.
Still there’s more to learn. Consider taking classes related to your interests or profession. A serious commitment to study or research is now called for. It may be time to go back to school. Skills and knowing what you need is in focus with this card being reversed. Are there skills you need to improve upon?

Summary:

This week could turn quite interesting, with possible social events (or proposals, who knows) and finishing projects or a phase in your life. AA Azrael can help you with your sorrow. Ending this week by once again picking up skills that we need. We’re always learning and are never to old to learn something new.

BAE Warrior update.

I assembled the sides to the bottom. I also removed and cleaned up some additional parts for later use.

Firsst bits of assembly.
First bits of assembly.

Once that was assembled I added the seat holders and some other interior parts as they should have the same colour. I then painted the interior parts with primer, whcich turned out to be one of the interior colours. Then the floor part and lower walls was painted green and then the seat cushions got a different shade of green.

Next will be to assemble and perhaps touch up a few parts. I will also add some dirt and wear.
