EarthSky News: Geminid meteors to peak this weekend

The annual Geminid meteor shower is expected to reach its peak this weekend – though under the glaring light of the almost-full waning gibbous moon. The peak morning is likely to be Saturday, December 14, 2019 – or, possibly, Sunday, December 15, 2019. But the morning of December 13 might offer some meteors, too. These colorful meteors tend to be bright, so you might see as many as 20 or so Perseids per hour, despite the moonlight. On a dark night, free of moonlight, you can easily spot 50 or more meteors per hour.

Inner Journey:

SELF-DECEPTION

“The first and worst of all frauds is to cheat one’s self.”
— Phillip James Bailey

Are you hiding in some way from your own inner light?

I wouldn’t dream of stealing things but I do steal from my own potential. I can be a master at rationalizing, at justifying why it’s not the right time to do something challenging. My arguments seem valid but deep down, I know they’re excuses.

“The longer the excuse, the less likely it’s the truth.”
— Robert Half

“When we know deep down that we’re acting with integrity despite impulses to do otherwise, we feel gates of higher energy and inspiration open inside of us.”
— Dan Millman

Environment

“I am I plus my surroundings; and if I do not preserve the latter, I do not preserve myself.”

-Jose Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955)

I know that this spiritual community totally understands the meaning of these words. When we get into that space where we can’t tell where we leave off and the environment begins, it is total bliss. We know that taking care of the environment is the same thing as taking care of ourselves.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess

Be inconspicuous if you can, stay out of your own way, and see how many things go right all by themselves. Real luck is looking for you today, but you can chase it away by trying to have too much control over everything. This is not a day to micromanage. Rather, listen to your hunches, and don’t demand solid answers or too many facts or figures.
