Daily Good: Mary Oliver: Instructions for Living A Life

Mary Oliver was one of the most beloved poets of our times. A writer who was dazzled by her daily experience of life, and dazzled the rest of us by telling about it in her poems and essays. She deliberately stayed out of the public eye and what follows is one of her rare interviews — a conversation with On Being’s Krista Tippett. Read on for a glimpse of the remarkable woman who once wrote: “When it’s over, I want to say: all my life/I was a bride married to amazement./I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms

EarthSky News: Venus-Jupiter conjunction on January 22

Before sunrise on January 22, 2019, look eastward or in the general direction of sunrise to see the conjunction of the planets Venus and Jupiter in the predawn/dawn sky. At conjunction, these two brilliant worlds shine north and south of one another on the sky’s dome, with Jupiter passing 2.5 degrees south of Venus. You simply can’t miss these two brilliant beauties, because Venus and Jupiter rank as the 3rd-brightest and 4th-brightest celestial bodies, respectively, after the sun and moon.

Patheos-Pagan: Imbolc Ritual: Honoring the Sacred Fire

The wheel of the year turns. By Imbolc, the sunlight is returning! Every day, the sun rises a little earlier, making our days grow longer and giving us more visibility. At this sacred time of the year, the point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox, we honor Brigid and the warmth in our homes and hearths.

Inner Journey:

REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM

“We focus on the negatives, losing ourselves in the ‘problem.’ We point to our unhappy circumstances to rationalize our negative feelings. This is the easy way out. It takes, after all, very little effort to feel victimized.”
— Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Nothing and no one can make us a victim. We do it to ourselves when we allow external circumstances to hold power over us.

Although we have no control over what happens to us, we ALWAYS have a choice in how we respond. We hold our power when we accept complete responsibility for our thoughts, feelings and actions.

“A man may fall many times but he won’t be a failure until he says someone pushed him.”
— Elmer G. Letterman

“The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.”
— Steven Biko

Truth

“This is the character of truth: it is of all time, it is for all men, it has only to show itself to be recognized, and one cannot argue against it”

-Voltaire (1694-1778)
Truth is the great clarifier. I think of Jack Nicholson in “A Few Good Men” being grilled on the witness stand by Tom Cruise – it’s obvious that Jack’s covering something because the pieces aren’t falling into place. And he gets frustrated and yells at Tom: “You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth!” It’s one of those great moments in film where you get that “ah-ha!” and then the truth comes out. The truth might not always be pretty – but it is what it is, and it wants to be discovered.

Thought.Co : Hold an Imbolc Candle Ritual for Solitaries

Hundreds of years ago, when our ancestors relied upon the sun as their only source of light, the end of winter was met with much celebration. Although it is still cold in February, often the sun shines brightly above us, and the skies are often crisp and clear. As a festival of light, Imbolc came to be called Candlemas. On this evening, when the sun has set once more, call it back by lighting the seven candles of this ritual.

It Requires Patience: Cat’s Angel Message for January 21, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Enlightenment must come little by little – otherwise it would overwhelm. – Idries Shah


121:  In today’s society it seems that we have more responsibilities and things that require our energy, money and time. It’s easy to become overwhelmed which can cause us to weighted down with worry and fear about everything from the future to finances. When we allow these things to take hold it overrides our positive thoughts and energies as well as blocking our forward progress. Our angels are reminding us today of how powerful our thoughts really are. We are responsible for how our lives turn out and how we think, react and see things plays a BIG part in that. The angels know that we have it in us to accomplish great things so they asking us to do our best at keeping our thoughts aligned with our dreams and goals. They are always available to help us and all we need to do is ask. Have faith in the Universe and in yourself. Above all remember to have patience  and nurture the  believe that you are worthy of great things. Tend your thought seeds and encourage them to them grow as they help manifest your efforts into reality.


Keep working with Archangel Sandalphon to ensure that your prayers and requests are delivered to the helpers who are best suited to your needs. Ascended Master Serapis Bey helps us to release our troubles and offers clear guidance and motivation regarding our own self improvement. He can also help us to open a clear line of communication with the divine. And, Aine, the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Source and in ourselves. “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are:

Yellow Jasper helps provide clarity on mental and emotional levels. It also starts us in a positive direction while helping us to find realistic and workable solutions.

Turquoise helps to purify our energy and clears away negative energy. it aids our problem solving skills and protects us against self self sabotaging thoughts and actions.

Howlite helps to calm stress, fear and promotes patience as it provides a link to the universal realms and prepares the mind to receive guidance.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Jan. 21, 2019 “Moving Forward”

Happy Monday,

Moving on. This happens to all of us at some point in our lives. The point is that things change.  People change, we change, relationships change, circumstances change. Often no one is to blame because things just happen.  Remember that change brings growth and by moving on with grace we pave the way  for the blessings that lie ahead.

All Is In Order: Cat’s Angel Message for January 20, 2019

All Is In Order: Cat’s Angel Message for January 20, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Never be fooled into believing that there is one speck out of order. – Byron Katie


120: There’s an old saying that goes ‘seeing is believing”. It’s true….. but not always. When we send our thoughts and intentions out into the universe we must have faith in what we cannot see. Today, our angels are asking us to believe in and have faith in the unseen. Our requests have been heard and the wheels are in motion. As we wait for these changes to take place remember to be patient and to work on new skills. These skills will be necessary as these new paths open up before us. Continue to work toward your dreams and goals because the energy that you send out is essential for the seed thoughts you have planted.


Archangel Sandalphon answers our requests and relays them to other spiritual helpers who are best suited to help us with specific things. The Ascended Master Saint Germain  surrounds us with loving protection. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. And the Welsh goddess Cordelia  has shown up today to remind us that every season has it’s own unique beauty and healing energy. She helps us to embrace joy today so that we can  escape stress and let go. “Healing can be found in nature. Allow the beauty that surrounds you to renew your spirit and fill your soul with pure joy.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Amber. Amber is not a stone, it is actually petrified tree resin. It teaches us the value of patience while bringing balance and relieving stress. We can also use Hematite. This stone has a strong connection to the earth element and helps us stay grounded and promotes feelings of safety. Hematite also brings mental clarity through focus and concentration which is essential letting go process which accompanies change.

January’s Full Moon (The Wolf Moon)

Sunday, January 20, 2019 

9:16 pm PST /  10: 16 pm MST /  12:16 am  EDT


It’s January and time for the first full moon of the new year, the Wolf Moon. The Full Moon itself offers powerful energy for rituals of prophecy, divination and protection. Any spell-work that requires extra energy, such as finding a new job or healing serious conditions, is best begun during the full moon. Also for love, gaining sacred knowledge, legal matters, attracting money and prophetic dreams.

It will also be a full lunar eclipse which adds a little extra power. The moon will be riding in the sign of Leo which reminds us of the important of  accepting feedback from others and using it for self improvement. The addition of the full lunar eclipse brings awareness of relationships on all levels and life areas. it’s time to initiate change and welcome the opportunities that change brings.

The Native Americans named this moon the Wolf Moon because during the long dark nights the wolves were hungry and would often howl outside the lodges of the people. Other names for this full moon include the Cold Moon, Winter Moon (Colonial), Holiday Moon (China), Quiet Moon (Celtic), Ice Moon (neo Pagan), Disting Moon, Moon of Little Winter and the Chaste Moon.

The January moon traditionally honored the Chinese deity Ch’ang-O, who was the goddess of the bedchamber and the protector of children. Other goddesses for January  include Freya, Inanna, Hera, Sinn and Sarasvati. To honor this moon try wearing colors of white, black and silver and adorning yourself with hematite, garnet, jet, onyx or chrysophase.

Blessings,

Cat

Cycles: Cat’s Angel Message for January 19, 2019

Cycles: Cat’s Angel Message for January 19, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Celebrate endings – for they precede new beginnings. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


119: When we enter into a new year we experience both endings and beginnings. Our lives are made up of  these cycles as well. There is an old saying the “When one door closes another one opens.” The Universe is asking us to take that to heart today. By maintaining an optimistic outlook and our sense of adventure  we can navigate these revolving cycles with ease. Each new cycle bring opportunities and blessings that help us to lead better and more fulfilling lives. Allow  new doors to open and don’t permit small setbacks to stop your momentum,  Start with baby steps, acknowledge the tiny miracles and promote goodwill to those around you. These things will make everyday a victory!


Archangel Chamuel  teaches us how to create the foundations of strong relationships and Archangel Jeremiel helps us to navigate endings by making positive life changes that impact new beginnings.  The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that when we allow ourselves to let go of  the things that have held us back we can unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And the Hindu goddess Lakshmi helps us to make decisions that are best suited for planning for the future, she says ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Sodalite. This stone unifies intuition and logic as it brings information from our higher self to the physical level. It teaches us how to remain true to yourself and stand up for the things you believe in.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
