Spiritual Unite: OWL SPIRIT GUIDE MEANING – THE MYSTERY OF THE NIGHT
Our spirit guides are exactly what they sound like – spirits that guide us through our journey here on Earth.

EarthSky News: Moon passes in front of Taurus the Bull
On December 26, 27 and 28, 2020, look for the bright waxing gibbous moon to shine in front of the constellation Taurus the Bull. On December 28, as seen from North America, the moon appears almost to clip the top of Orion’s upraised club. Still, officially, the moon is near the border of Taurus then.
Patheos-Pagan: Fast Away The Old Year Passes
For years now my family and I sing one special song during our Yule celebration. “Deck the Halls.” Why? Because it is without a doubt (in my opinion) the most pagan of the traditional holiday carols. Not to mention it is fun to sing and we all know the lyrics.

Inner Journey: REAWAKEN YOUR CURIOSITY
“What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.”
— Sigmund Freud
Why is this so?
Young children possess what Zen calls ‘beginner’s mind.’ They are awed and fascinated with the wonder of the world, open to discovering and experiencing new things. Anything is possible. Life is a great adventure.
For almost all of us, the systems that ‘educate’ us to be adults stifle our natural joy and curiosity. We lose touch with our innate appreciation of life. We forget how to dream.
The blessing is that with attention, patience and love, we can reawaken our sense of wonder. We can again dance with life.
“The mind WILL be free, or it will be dead.”
— Grace Llewellyn

December 28, 2020
“It is not enough to take steps which may some day lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.”
We learn about the importance of setting goals, and we know how good it feels when we reach those goals. But at the same time, we need to remember that each step is an important part of our progress. We need to recognize this, and celebrate that we are moving forward. We are learning and growing every day

Daily Tarot: The Empress
Everything you touch or talk about today is going to get bigger, so be careful with your words and actions. While today will be easygoing and agreeable, a few days from now something you set in motion today may come back in a bigger form. Watch out for exaggeration, even about good things. Go light on the flattery, and even sincere compliments, since it all may become grander than you intend.
