One of the more rare forms of quartz, this gemstone ranges in color from the palest yellow to a dark amber named Madeira because of its resemblance to the red wine.

Pagan Playlist: Celtic Music – Equinox



We think that God has blessed us if we don’t have too many troubles. In fact, religions have erroneously taught us that pain is punishment for our sins. We often ask, “What have I done wrong?” when things do not go the way we want.

Yet, to become ourselves in the truest and deepest sense, we must face our own duality, which of course includes facing our darkness. As souls we strive for wholeness, not for perfection.

At first, we really don’t know what is going on. We just find life difficult, challenging and often painful. Eventually, after much experience and reflection, we start to find meaning in it all. Eventually, we gladly accept the means whereby we can do the Soul work we have come for.

As we become conscious as Souls, we walk our journey purposefully, embracing the reality of our earthly nature along with the truth of our divine nature.

“When we are conscious of our personal uniqueness and our universal nature we express ourselves creatively. In this way we fulfill our dreams and our life purpose.”
— Andrew Schneider


A Note from the Universe

If, when you lay your head upon your pillow tonight, you could choose to slip into a dream dimension where time would literally expand, so much so that you could live out an entire other lifetime within it as a person “designed” by you from head to toe, even choosing your name and who your parents would be.

Where every single day you’d be pushed on to greatness, every single challenge would invite you to become more, and all of your dreams could come true.

Where, no matter how things may ever seem, you’d be bathed in love, surrounded by friends, safe and sound in your very own bed.

And where, upon waking, all that you loved and learned in that lifetime would remain with you forever, and all that scared and threatened you would only have prepared you for happily-ever-after.

Would you choose to go there? On the condition that it felt like your “real life”?

Of course you would. I know you.

Which begs the questions, “How do you know, then, this isn’t that dream? And, who, exactly, is now dreaming they’re you?”

Howling at the moon,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
November 2, 2020


“It is the emotion which drives the intelligence forward in spite of obstacles.”

-Henri Bergson (1859-1941)

It has been said that necessity is the mother of invention. But what creates the necessity? Some human emotion that cries out for attention. And then to satisfy that need, our intelligence kicks into high gear. When we want something really badly, we somehow figure out a way to get it.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Death

Though no great demands may be made of you today, you may feel lackluster and just not setting the world on fire as you like to do. Everybody has a low energy day from time to time. Perhaps you’ve been pushing it too hard for too many days in a row and just need a short break. Don’t be lazy but be extra good to yourself. Tomorrow will be brighter.
