EarthSky News: Castor and Pollux meet the moon, March 10 to 12
On March 10, watch the 1st-quarter moon among the winter stars. On the 10th, it sits inside the Winter Circle. This asterism is also shaped like a hexagon with six bright stars marking its corners. The moon floats in Taurus above the upraised club of Orion. But it will slide toward the twins Castor and Pollux in Gemini on each consecutive night.
from AuntyFlo: Deosil
The clockwise direction that is generally used within ritual.
The direction of the sun and the moon, the direction that time is read, and things move forward. Deosil is important because it is the direction of manifestation and creation.
When a circle is constructed it is brought up deosil and it is taken down it is the opposite: widdershins. Deosil and Widdershins both will be opposite in the Southern Hemisphere from the Northern Hemisphere.
Pagan Playlist: Perfect AIR – Slow Shaman Drum & Wind Chimes – Heart Chakra Balancing Mediation – Tantra Music
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche
We never have enough information to enable us to fully understand the truth of the reality around us. And there is never only one correct perspective about anything.
Knowing this helps me let go of my tendency to label things as good or bad. I suffer least when I can accept reality just as it is. And I benefit most when I open my heart and mind in appreciation.
“If you are pained by external things, it is not they that disturb you, but your own judgment of them. And it is in your power to wipe out that judgment now.”
— Marcus Aurelius
A Note from the Universe
If you just look at all that already exists in your life, all that you already have: unlimited air to breathe, ample lighting to see, music to hear, books to read, stars to dream by, trees to gaze upon, floors to dance over, friends to cavort with, strangers to meet, enemies to befriend, woods to walk through, beaches to comb, rocks to scale, rains to splash in, rivers to float in, animals to bring comfort… you have to admit there’s more of it than you could ever, ever, ever, ever spend.
But try anyway.

“Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.”
There are times when it is best to take baby steps, to move cautiously. And then there are times when we need to take a leap of faith and just go for it. Starting a business is a big decision in itself. And like life, and everything else, how much we put into it shows. Success is a personal definition, it’s about how you feel.

Daily Tarot: The Emperor
You have extra protection today, but this is not a reason to act rashly or take extra risks. In fact, you may be called upon to protect someone else or to safeguard some progress or advantage that was recently gained. Have self-confidence in all situations but don’t take your safety for granted. Be willing to be responsible for those around you and win a lot of loyalty.
