Pioneer Thinking: What is Natural Living?
I‘m sure that if I took a poll I would get a million answers. Some of these would probably be: spending more time with nature, going green, living off the grid, growing your own food, buying local, and reducing your carbon footprint.

EarthSky News: See Earth’s shadow after sunset
These next few days – November 27 and 28, 2020 – look for Earth’s shadow and the Belt of Venus below the bright waxing gibbous moon. An unobstructed horizon and clear sky increase your chances of seeing the dark blue of the Earth’s shadow capped by the pinkish Belt of Venus. You’re looking opposite the sunset direction, roughly 30 to 60 minutes after sunset. If you look too soon, your sky will be too bright, but if you look too late, your sky will be too dark.
Patheos-Pagan: Harvest Home Blessings, and Magic Cookies
This Thanksgiving just won’t be the same, and as much as anyone else, I’m pretty bummed about it. So, instead of a diatribe on the origins of the holiday, or talk about why I am or am not feeling thankful, I thought I’d just share a favorite recipe for some magic cookies, and a Harvest Home blessing a friend inspired me to write.

Inner Journey: WHAT ARE YOU FEELING?
“We know too much and feel too little. At least, we feel too little of those creative emotions from which a good life springs.”
— Bertrand Russell
Many of the qualities that bring fulfilment in life are feelings, like love, joy, freedom and gratitude.
In our overly rational world, we tend to think about how we feel, which, of course, is not feeling at all — it’s thinking.
Honour your feelings and be willing to experience them. They give us valuable feedback about what is and what is not working in our lives. They are the signposts to meaningful inner work.
“With just a little education and practice on how to manage your emotions, you can move into a new experience of life so rewarding that you will be motivated to keep on managing your emotional nature in order to sustainit. The payoff is delicious in terms of improved quality of life.”
— Doc Childre

“The hope, and not the face, of advancement is the spur to industry.”
-Henry Taylor (1800-1886)
Advancement is moving forward, improvement, growth. We are driven to industry, attracted to it, because we know how much further we have to go, and how much further it can take us.

Daily Tarot: Justice
You might prefer to do most things on your own today, but that may not be permitted. Find ways to involve others and enlist help, or simply let them do their part. Wait until tonight to decompress in private. It’s important to keep an even temper and not let others manipulate you emotionally. Your feelings are being strongly projected, so treat others with tact and avoid anger.
