EarthSky News: How to locate planet Uranus
Tonight – January 14, 2019 – the waxing gibbous moon is roughly one day past first quarter phase and shines rather close to the 7th planet, Uranus, on the sky’s dome. Uranus is located in the the constellation Pisces the Fishes, though very close to the border of the constellation Aries the Ram. This faint planet – barely bright enough to be glimpsed with the eye alone on a moonless night – will cross over into the constellation Aries in February 2019, but the moon will leave this section of the starry sky after a day or two.

“It ain’t so much trouble to get rich as it is to tell when we have got rich.”
— Josh Billings
How do you define ‘rich’?
If you want greater wealth, what does that mean for you? A large annual income? If so, how large? A beautiful home? Health? Security? Happiness? To be in service?
Get really specific about what would bring you a rich life. There are no right and wrong answers here. Don’t judge your desires. Just dig deep to discover what it is that you really want. If you want things, explore what qualities of life those things represent to you.
“No one can tell whether they are richer or poor by turning to their ledger. It is the heart that makes a person rich. One is rich according to what one is, not according to what one has.”
— Henry Ward Beecher
“If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free. If our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.”
— Edmund Burke

“Each moment we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that never was before and never will be again.”
I was given this quote when I was sixteen, and I have it displayed in my office today. Being “in the moment” is one of those things that is so easy to say, yet sometimes so hard to do. The moments seem to pass by us so quickly. We find ourselves saying: “Where did the time go?” So it’s important to stay present, and to recognize the value of those moments. In spirit, there is no time or place… but we’re here, in this physical body, on this earth, for a reason. Here there is time, here there are moments – moments we can hold and treasure, moments where we can learn and grow.
