Spirituality & Health: Refresh Body and Spirit With a Moon Practice
Does your New Year’s Resolution feel like a distant memory? The moon provides a monthly fresh start.
Despite our New Year’s Resolutions, January isn’t really the best time to start a new habit. It is the darkest, coldest time of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere, and it is a notoriously hard time for our collective health—and that was true long before we were mired in a global pandemic.

Ask anyone what they want most and the overwhelming majority will answer, why, happiness, of course.
Obviously, what constitutes happiness varies, slightly, from person to person, but regardless, there is an underlying expectation that life should offer what it is we ultimately seek.

Patheos-Pagan: The Wild Hunt in a Witches Wood
JANUARY 28, 2022 BY RAVEN WOOD
Through the years I have seen and heard things in these woods that I could never explain, the dark season and the Wild Hunt by far are when I’ve seen the most. Winter here is stunningly beautiful, a snow-covered forest, snowbanks sparkling like crystals, and icicles that never end….

LIVE LIFE FULLY
“Time is life. It is irreversible and irreplaceable. To waste your time is to waste your life, but to master your time is to master your life and make the most of it.”
— Alan Lakein
Refuse to feel USED by life! Make full use of it instead.
To do this, we initially need to take control of the time of our lives. Time management is life management, from the inside out. It’s an INSIDE job. You already have everything you need. You have the power to create a life of meaning, fulfillment and joy.
Your challenge is to find what works for you! Review the literature but make your own decisions. To do this, you’ll need to:
Get to know yourself — your desires and passions, rhythms, styles, challenges, needs and habits.
Be aware that you always have choice. Claim your independence and power to choose what is right for your life, moment by moment.
“Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.”
— M. Scott Peck
A Note from the Universe
Sometimes I laugh so hard it starts a hurricane amongst far-off stars.
Sometimes, I grin so wide it causes earthquakes on distant planets.
And sometimes, when I feel so happy I could float, worlds are born, continents rise, and oceans surge.
But never, ever, ever, do I lay so much as a finger on planet Earth. Because there, my work is long over, and yours has just begun.
Yo, Ho, Ho!

“It is our business to go as we are impelled.”
We are attracted to what we are attracted to for a reason. We want what we want for a reason. We are drawn in a certain direction for a reason. These are all clues as to our purpose in life. Our instincts work to bring us to our desires. They don’t come to us so much as we go to them through our actions and efforts

Daily Tarot: The Fool
Expect the unexpected, in fact don’t even expect that much. Today could be a wild ride, and you may instigate some of it in the spirit of fun, suggests the Fool card. Play it safe and stay out of trouble if you can, but it could be hard at times. Don’t fret over any little mistakes today. By tonight or at least tomorrow it may be hard to tell who made them if anyone even recalls them.
