Learn Religions: The Morrighan
By Patti Wigington
Updated on December 10, 2018
In Celtic mythology, the Morrighan is known as a goddess of battle and war. However, there’s a bit more to her than this. Also referred to as Morrígu, Morríghan, or Mor-Ríoghain, she is called the “washer at the ford,” because if a warrior saw her washing his armor in the stream, it meant he was to die that day.

Treehugger: What’s the Difference Between Jaguars and Leopards?
Look close enough, and it’s all in the spots.
Telling the difference between jaguars and leopards can get confusing thanks to their (almost) matching signature spots. But these big cats are, in fact, two separate species, with territorial ranges in two distinct parts of the world.
EarthSky News: Moon phases: Keys to understanding them
Moon phases change shape every day
Why does the moon seem to change its shape every night? It’s because the moon is a world in space, just as Earth is. Like Earth, the sun always illuminates half of the moon; the round globe of the moon has a day side and a night side. And, like Earth, the moon is always moving through space.

THE PARADOX OF LIFE’S JOURNEY
“It is only when we realize that life is taking us nowhere that it begins to have meaning.”
— P.D. Ouspensky
“All major mystical traditions have recognized that there is a paradox at the heart of the journey of return to Origin. …Put simply, this is that we are already what we seek, and that what we are looking for on the Path with such an intensity of striving and passion and discipline is already within and around us at all moments. The journey and all its different ordeals are all emanations of the One Spirit that is manifesting everything in all dimensions; every rung of the ladder we climb toward final awareness is made of the divine stuff of awareness itself; Divine Consciousness is at once creating and manifesting all things and acting in and as all things in various states of self-disguise throughout all the different levels and dimensions of the universe.”
— Andrew Harvey
“Look at you, you madman, Screaming you are thirsty And are dying in a desert when all around you there is nothing but water!”
“After changes upon changes, we are more or less the same.”
— Paul Simon
A Note from the Universe
You don’t have to take everything so seriously.
Life isn’t black and white, answers aren’t always yes or no, and absolutely nothing has to happen today.
Act when you’re ready. Be led by your feelings. And the next time someone wants to fit you into a box, just tell ’em that your jeans are in the wash, your angels are at the mall, and Oprah’s on the other line.

“I have never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.”
-Henry David Thoreau, Walden
No one can know you as well as you know yourself. And yet, how well do you really know yourself? Are you your own best friend? Spend some time with yourself, just you, and pretty soon you’ll discover just how wonderful you really are!

Daily Tarot: The Empress
Dress well, speak well, and spend time with people who normally might overlook you. Today you have more authority and influence than usual. At work, your superiors will recognize your talents and capabilities (though they might not outwardly acknowledge it). At home, you can be the ruler of all you survey and your word will go unchallenged. Be gracious and make it all beautiful.
