November Quotes

“Besides the autumn poets sing,
A few prosaic days
A little this side of the snow
And that side of the haze.

A few incisive mornings,
A few ascetic eves, –
Gone Mr. Bryant’s golden-rod,
And Mr. Thomson’s sheaves.”

Emily Dickinson, Nature: XLIX

Exemplore: Magical Spells for Protecting and Connecting With Animals

The Link Between Magic and Spirituality
I have been interested in Witchcraft ever since I was a child. In fact, I think I was born with a bell, book and candle in my hand. Witchcraft, or Wicca, is a form of Paganism. But what does that mean? Today, one of the definitions of what it means to be a Pagan is to be a lover of Nature.

EarthSky News: Gegenschein is the glow of interplanetary dust

The sun’s counterglow – or gegenschein – is a stargazers’ holy grail. Every amateur astronomer has heard of it. But only a few of them have ever seen it. And fewer still have captured an image of this dim and ghostlike apparition. As a fellow observer put it:

Patheos-Pagan: Hoodoo How We Do: Devil’s Shoestring Root

Inner Journey:


“The most pathetic person in the world is the person who has sight, but no vision.”
— Helen Keller

What’s the big picture for your life? Always have a larger, purposeful, even spiritually ideal picture of where you are going. Your mind needs to have a clear and challenging vision to draw you ever upwards.

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and follow where they lead.”
— Louisa May Alcott

“The only limits are, as always, those of vision.”
— James Broughton


A Note from the Universe

You know, if it wasn’t for the fact that everyone can think as they please and feel as they choose, with a lifetime of back-to-back manifestation stories, I, too, might even think that life was hard, short, and unfair, instead of easy, breezy, Parcheesi.

Empirically yours,

The Universe

Daily Tarot: The Devil

Some days you just want to be self-indulgent, and today is one of those days. Put those feelings on the back burner while at work or out in public. After the serious part of the day is over, the danger actually increases for you. Don’t overindulge and make yourself sick or regretful. Sometimes too much of a good thing is too much, and you want to start tomorrow feeling good.
