December Quotes

“Good husband and housewife, now chiefly be glad,
Things handsome to have, as they ought to be had.
They both do provide, against Christmas do come,
To welcome their neighbors, good cheer to have some.

Good bread and good drink, a good fire in the hall,
Brawn, pudding, and souse, and good mustard withal.
Beef, mutton, and pork, and good pies of the best,
Pig, veal, goose, and capon, and turkey well drest,
Cheese, apples and nuts, and good carols to hear,
As then in the country is counted good cheer.

What cost to good husband, is any of this?
Good household provision only it is:
Of other the like, I do leave out a many,
That costeth the husband never a penny.”

Thomas Tusser, Christmas Cheer

Dear Ones,

Perhaps you worry that you are not good enough. That even though others are transitioning, you cannot love enough to do so.

Of course, such is not true, because you would not be reading these words or worrying about your transition if you were not transitioning – on time and in the most correct way for you.

Spirituality & Health: How to Strengthen Your Intuition Through the Lunar Cycle
by Mara Branscombe

Use these simple but powerful methods to attune yourself to the moon’s phases to develop stronger intuition.
Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all deeply connected to the moon’s 29.5-day cycle.

The human body is composed of approximately 60 percent water. Like the moon’s pull on the ocean tides, the moon similarly provides us with an ebb and flow of energy that can be observed if we take the time to notice it.

“More than any other part of the body, our hands reveal our inner state.”
— Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

Today, be aware of how you hold your hands when you’re not actively doing something with them.

With the stress of our daily lives, many of us find our hands typically clenched in fists. This is proof of the tension we hold in our bodies. And ponder this: how can we receive the abundance of life if our hands are not open to receive it?

When you become aware that your hands are closed tight, stretch your fingers and spread them wide in the shape of a starfish. Deep breathing will also help you relax into the moment.

“What is always speaking silently is the body.”
— Norman Brown


A Note from the Universe

Don’t you think “fabulous” and “wealth” are two words that should always be used together?

I do.

After all, everything begins with thought, thought is pure spirit, and you get to decide what’s fabulous or not.

Give it a try,

The Universe

Daily Tarot: The Lovers
Indecision is not necessarily a bad thing, but taken to extremes it can make you pessimistic and defeatist. Take the time you need to make the choices you need but don’t get bogged down and grind to a halt. Take yourself in hand and refuse to feel helpless in the face of a challenging (or tempting) situation. Refuse to be rushed by anyone, too.
