2021 has been a year of great inner transformation which will bring revolutionary changes to our world. To successfully travel through these changes, it is crucial that we allow the old patterns of past cycles to be transformed, transmuted, and released. As we do so we are able to better align ourselves with the flow of cosmic energies and the new consciousness that is being birthed.

The winter garden may seem quiet, but it’s filled with all-natural decorations.
Most of us like to bring some cheer into our homes over the festive season. For many, that involves a Christmas tree. But unless your tree is a living one, and your decorations are all-natural and plastic-free, this is not the most sustainable of choices.
EarthSky News: Visible planets – and more – in December 2021
Chuck Reinhart in Vincennes, Indiana, took this image of Jupiter, Saturn and Venus on November 30, 2021. He wrote: “Shortly after sunset I was able to photograph 3 planets: Jupiter, Saturn and Venus.” Thank you, Chuck! These are the 3 visible planets you’ll easily notice for most of December. Jupiter, Saturn, Venus are all in the sunset direction. Venus is lowest in the sky (nearest the sunset), but still very bright. Venus is heading for its time of greatest brilliancy on December 3. It looks like an eerie beacon in the western evening twilight, with Saturn and Jupiter arcing above it.

Inner Journey: SECURITY
“Let us never confuse stability with stagnation.”
— Mary Jean LeTendre
“Many people think that by hoarding money they are gaining safety for themselves. If money is your ONLY hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that a person can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. Without these qualities, money is practically useless.”
— Henry Ford
“One has to abandon altogether the search for security, and reach out to the risk of living with both arms. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing.”
— Morris L. West
“One thing we can do is make the choice to view the world in a healthy way. We can choose to see the world as safe with only moments of danger rather than seeing the world as dangerous with only moments of safety.”
— Deepak Chopra
“The only peace, the only security, is in fulfillment.”
— Henry Miller

“In my experience, there is only one motivation, and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it.”
Desire moves us to action. The bigger the desire, the swifter the action. When we really want something, we get creative, and pull out all the stops. We engage our intelligence, we find the means to fulfill our desire. We become empowered.

Daily Tarot: The Lovers
Indecision is not necessarily a bad thing, but taken to extremes it can make you pessimistic and defeatist. Take the time you need to make the choices you need but don’t get bogged down and grind to a halt. Take yourself in hand and refuse to feel helpless in the face of a challenging (or tempting) situation. Refuse to be rushed by anyone, too.
