Demons and Gender: Asafoetida #domagick day 22

I played with watercolors yesterday to burn off some stress. I considered painting something for Asafoetida, but became hung up on how I would capture her presence. It is difficult to picture her, as I would say that my strongest impression of her has been scent. I tend to smell flowers for a short time after working with her no matter what incense I use. I often “see” impressions of the color pink, but in both cases those could be my interpretation of what a daemoness of feminine attributes should be like. Gender isn’t as easily put in a box than that, and I didn’t want to box in Asafoetida in either.  I don’t want to make assumptions. Perhaps I will grow to know her better over time. Today’s Lenormand cards (BIRDS + STORK = Improving communication) imply that I will.

I certainly haven’t connected with her as well as some other daemons, but I haven’t connected with this Domagick challenge as well as others either. The daily blogging feels like a grind, like collecting 30 of the same thing in Warcraft. But I continued my pursuit of “leveling up” and worked the breathing / meditation positions of Ptah today. Again, it evened out my mood and my energy until my full cleansing on the weekend.)
