“In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood had as iron,
Water like a stone,
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter,
- Christina Rossetti

LOOK INSIDE FOR DIRECTION
“If you see your path laid out in front of you — Step one, Step two, Step three — you only know one thing… it is not your path. Your path is created in the moment of action. If you can see it laid out in front of you, you can be sure it is someone else’s path. That is why you see it so clearly.”
— Joseph Campbell
What? No one to follow? Now that’s a scary thought!
And yet, that’s what life asks each of us to do – to chart our own path. We are each unique. We’re told our uniqueness is our gift to the world. And so why would we even want to follow in someone else’s footsteps?
Can we trust ourselves to carve our own trail?
“To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling.”
— Jean Shinoda Bolen

“The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it. There is no event greater in life than the appearance of new persons about our hearth, except it be the progress of the character which draws them.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
People come and go from our lives. And as we change and grow spiritually, we begin to notice that we draw people to us for special reasons. Maybe we have something to offer a friend that no one else can. Maybe a friend has a gift, or a lesson, for us that we wouldn’t have found on our own. There are no coincidences. It’s all part of our journey to experience these people and events at just the time when we are supposed to. Welcome them!

Daily Tarot: The Pope
Save those creative, foot-loose and fancy-free activities for another day and focus on the nuts and bolts. If you’ve been putting off doing something necessary but not fun, knock it out now and then feel accomplished when finished. You can earn a lot of regard and admiration for this. You won’t be allowed to keep too low a profile, so just step up and do what’s important for today. You should encounter no resistance.
