The bleak November winds, and smote the woods,
And the brown fields were herbless, and the shades
That met above the merry rivulet
Were spoiled, I sought, I loved them still; they seemed
Like old companions in adversity.”
- William Cullen Bryant, A Winter Piece

Moon in Gemini
On November 21 and 22, 2021, before going to bed, look for the moon in your eastern sky. It’ll be a bright waning gibbous moon, less than perfectly round. And you might notice two bright stars in the moon’s vicinity. They are Castor and Pollux in the constellation Gemini. These stars are noticeable for being both bright and close together on the sky’s dome. That’s why – in legends of the sky – they often represent Twins.

Bat medicine is no joke. Two weeks ago at dusk I headed up the stairs to my bedroom to grab my reusable water bottle. I was tired from a long work day and a little checked out from my surroundings.

LOVE YOUR SHADOWS
Each of us has characteristics we define as ‘good’ and those we define as ‘bad.’ The parts of ourselves that we continually reject want to be acknowledged and loved. Until we honour these aspects, they will continue to assert themselves. They will do whatever they can to get our attention.
What aspects of yourself do you reject?
Take a few moments to open to the parts of yourself that you do not love. See each one honestly for what it is. Explore the wounds and the motives that gave rise to its condition. Love a wounded part of yourself and it will heal.
“Strangely enough we strengthen love in ourselves when we raise into consciousness the shadow side of our lives. Conversely, when we keep negative feelings out of sight, they smother the love that seems to lie deeper and closer to the real self. This is probably why there is so much pain in not loving. The life that is not able to express the love which is so integral to it grows deformed.”
— Elizabeth O’Connor
A Note from the Universe
Do you want to know what’s really beautiful? Confidence.
Do you want to know what’s really powerful? Persistence.
Do you want to know what’s really sexy? (Please, I know about sexy.) Not needing to be needed.
And if still “they” don’t notice your good looks, your strength, and your sashay… it’s them, not you.

“We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry, or because they remain intrigued with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck. But part of it has got to be forgiveness and gratefulness.”
If there is any one factor that sustains a relationship it has to be appreciation. Recognizing, and acknowledging, a person’s presence in our lives, and the value that they add to the quality of our lives is key. We all have a desire to be appreciated, not just for what we do, but for who we are. And we feel closest to the people in our lives who allow us to feel appreciated

Daily Tarot: The Moon
Things may be going fine but you’ll still be able to find something to be disappointed about. Rather than looking on the glum side of things, take a walk in the sunshine or at least get some fresh air and make an effort to be more objective. Full-blown optimism may be beyond you today, but you can balance your mood by noticing and maybe making a list of all those things that are going right
