“January is the quietest month in the garden. … But just because it looks quiet doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. The soil, open to the sky, absorbs the pure rainfall while microorganisms convert tilled-under fodder into usable nutrients for the next crop of plants. The feasting earthworms tunnel along, aerating the soil and preparing it to welcome the seeds and bare roots to come.”
- Rosalie Muller Wright, Editor of Sunset Magazine, 1/99

With a new year comes a new cycle that is pregnant with the possibility of a new life and a new direction. The energies of this month are paving the way for a new beginning in all areas of life and as such we can expect change and transformation to continue. Currently, the energies are expansive encouraging us to break free of old structures and the ways of thinking that keep us limited and confined.

Imbolc is a holiday with a variety of names, depending on which culture and location you’re looking at.

TIME TO STOP SEEKING?
“If there are so many seekers, why are there so few finders?”
— Eckhart Tolle
Perhaps we’ve misunderstood the whole concept of a spiritual journey. The term ‘seeker’ means we are looking for something we believe we do not have now. It places all hope on the future because as a seeker, we haven’t yet found our salvation.
Tolle encourages us to experience the truth of who we are by being present right now. If we do that, we don’t have to seek anything. We already have everything and can relax and rejoice in the power of being.
“There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment. A man’s whole life is a succession of moment after moment. If one fully understands the present moment, there will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue.”
A Note from the Universe
There is no detail so small, no thought however fleeting, no word unspoken, no deed mindlessly performed, that doesn’t send its vibration into the unseen, reaching my heart of hearts, where it echoes and returns as more of the same.
And as your cumulative manifestations draw your attention to the stunning and absolute power you have over your destiny, you’ll come to see that, really and truly, there is no such thing as a small detail.
You have the keys to the Kingdom…
Today’s Recipe: Red Winter Minestrone with Winter Greens Pesto
The thing I like most about this soup is the pesto made from the greens of the beets and turnips, along with the kale. Yep, I’m going tip-to-tail. The soup itself gets its lovely red color from beets. You’ll have more pesto than you need for the soup, so serve the leftovers over pasta or freeze for future soups. Serve the minestrone with crusty bread and a salad.

“I am a choreographer. A choreographer is a poet. I do not create. God creates. I assemble, and I will steal from everywhere to do it.”
We have so many tools to work with when we create, and one of them is our intelligence. We get an idea, and that is the spark that sends our creativity into play. We figure out how to get something done, how we can make something better, more efficient, more productive, or more beautiful.

Daily Tarot: The Fool
The day may be full of confusion but you don’t have to go through it naively and unaware of what’s happening around you. It’s not a good day to flirt with taking silly risks, some of which might turn out to be semi-dangerous or costly. You may be too hyper to want to play it safe, but at least make an effort to not be naïve or irresponsible
