January Quotes

“Bare branches of each tree
on this chilly January morn
look so cold so forlorn.
Gray skies dip ever so low
left from yesterday’s dusting of snow.
Yet in the heart of each tree
waiting for each who wait to see
new life as warm sun and breeze will blow,
like magic, unlock springs sap to flow,
buds, new leaves, then blooms will grow.”

  • Nelda Hartmann, January Morn

By Patti Wigington
Updated on October 21, 2019
It’s Imbolc, and that’s the Sabbat where many Pagans choose to honor the Celtic goddess Brighid, in her many aspects. However, other than having a giant statue of Brighid on your altar, there are a number of ways you can set up for the season.

Elephant Journal: Cancer Full Moon: Coming Home to our Wholeness. {January 17}

The tides move like the ocean, buoyant and fluid,
Choppy and dark some days,
Translucent and clear like
The moon others,
Heart to heart, we are growing,
Shifting, changing, molting, melding,
Softening, toughening,

Treehugger: Forest School Is My Kids’ New Favorite Place to Go
One day per week, they get an education that the classroom can never teach.

On Mondays, two of my children get ready for school in an unusual way. Each packs a large plastic bin with two changes of clothes, plenty of food and water, a pair of rubber boots, splash or snow pants, hats, mitts, and sometimes a thermos of hot chocolate.

EarthSky News: Meet the Crab Nebula, remnant of an exploding star

A supernova explodes
The Crab Nebula is what’s called a supernova remnant. It’s what’s left of an exploded star. It’s a vast expanding cloud of gas and dust surrounding one of the densest objects in the universe, a neutron star. Chinese astronomers noticed the sudden appearance of a star blazing in the daytime sky on July 4, 1054 CE. It likely outshone the brightest planet, Venus, and was temporarily the third-brightest object in the sky, after the sun and moon.

Inner Journey:


“I never know what I think about something until I read what I’ve written on it.”
— William Faulkner

What have you been thinking lately?

Do you know? We get so accustomed to our thoughts that we lose awareness of them. We don’t see how they are stuck in old habitual patterns, most of which don’t serve us.

Take time to journal so you can capture your thoughts on paper. By doing so, you will begin to take control of your mind and use it to best advantage.

“When you choose to understand [and] exercise control over the functions and attributes of your own mind, you will be empowered to create your own reality, to be completely self-reliant and totally prosperous.”
— The Delfin Knowledge System


A Note from the Universe

Not events, but outcomes. Visualize outcomes.

Not the cracking of the bat, but gliding over home plate.

Not the inking of deals, but the kind of life you’ll lead.

Not the scale, the diet, or the food, but the admiration you have earned.

And not the whens, the wheres, the whos, or the hows, but the laughter, high-fives, and wows.

Not events, but outcomes. Visualize outcomes.

Seeing you happy,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
January 11, 2022

“The great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”

-Oliver Wendell Holmes

There’s a zen saying that “wherever you go, there you are.” Our convictions propel us to experience more of who we are. As we learn and grow, it may feel as if we’re moving upward, outward, onward – but in reality we’re moving inward, closer to our selves.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Chariot

There may be a lot of possible things to do and places to go today. You don’t need to instantly decide anything upon waking up. Let your intuition guide you, and continue listening to that intuition as you begin down the path you’ve chosen. If work or family have dictated today, don’t be resentful but let intuition sort out the easiest and best route for you to follow.
