In drear nighted December,
Too happy, happy tree,

The north cannot undo them
With a sleety whistle through them

MBG: This Is What Actually Attracts People To You 

Over time, I’ve learned to understand words like “beauty” and “attractiveness” in a different way—not in terms of physical appearances but in terms of what I refer to as radiance. Radiance is that je ne c’est quoi that spins heads when you walk into a room. It creates a door where there was once a wall. It has nothing to do with age, body shape, or physical features.

Daily Good: 8 World-Views and Practices by Mark Nepo

Since prehistoric hunters had to work together in order to survive, people have had to learn how to share both the workload and the harvest, and the problems and the joys. Through the centuries, traditions have formed and complexities have grown. But the health of all community depends on how we treat each other. This article explores eight worldviews and the practices they offer. Each can help us stay wholehearted, authentic, and in true relationship to life and each other.

MNN: 8 things to know about the winter solstice

“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night,” quipped Steve Martin — and indeed, even a day with less sunshine can feel a bit dark. Our world depends on the light radiating from that big star we traipse around, and when it’s in short supply, we feel it. But if you count yourself among those who don’t love waking up before the sun rises and getting off work after it has set, things are about to lighten up. Hello, winter solstice!

EarthSky News: Time to look for Mercury and Jupiter below Venus

Now – mid-December 2018 – it’s time to get outside in the early morning and try to spot our sun’s innermost planet, Mercury. Look east, the sunrise direction. You can’t miss super-bright Venus. Mercury is below it, near the sunrise point. If you look extra hard with the unaided eye or binoculars, you might spot bright Jupiter near the horizon, too, on a line with Venus and Mercury.

Patheos-Pagan: Yule Shopping? What To Get For The Witch Or Pagan Who Has Everything

Odds are pretty likely you’re still shopping for holiday gifts, or perhaps you haven’t even started yet. And maybe you have that friend whom you know is either a witch, pagan, polytheist, or some general form of occultist. What in the name of the gods above and below can you get them that doesn’t look like some generic “Here’s a random candle, knock yourself out!” type of a present?

Inner Journey

REVIEW YOUR LIFE

“Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.”
— James Levin

Take a few minutes today to reflect on what has happened recently and to put the last week in perspective. What made an impact on you this last week? What do you want to set as a goal for next week?

Reflection helps us step back from the details of our lives and see the bigger picture with fresh eyes. It’s worth a few moments of your time. Review your week and come up with at least one conclusion, insight or learning and write it in your journal.

“Just because we increase the speed of information doesn’t mean we can increase the speed of decisions. Pondering, reflecting and ruminating are undervalued skills in our culture.”
— Dale Dauten

A Note from the Universe

Today don’t think or say, “I’m tired,” “I’m hurt,” “I’m angry.” Don’t even think or say, “I’m happy.”

Instead, think and say, “I’ve chosen to be tired, hurt, angry.” Or better still, “I’m choosing to be happy.”

You don’t get “hit” by feelings, you feel them based on your perceptions, and you perceive based on your beliefs, and you believe as you choose.

EarthSky News: Christmas Bird Count starts December 14 

The Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count is one of the longest-running citizen science projects in existence- it was started on Christmas Day in 1900 and is still going strong. During the event, people venture outdoors to designated areas and count the types and numbers of birds that they see and hear over the course of one day. The data are used to keep track of the health of bird populations in North America. This year’s count runs from December 14, 2018 through January 5, 2019.

Inner Journey:

LOVE LIFE AND YOURSELF

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
— Lao Tzu

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.

We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.

“It matters not Who you love, Where you love, Why you love, When you love, Or how you love, It matters only that you love.”
— John Lennon

“Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where the fruit is?”
— Frank Scully

A Note from the Universe

Living in time and space, Cat, just might be the scariest, most heartbreaking, and lonely path an angel could ever choose.

Until, of course, they realize that being scared doesn’t mean they can’t make a difference, broken hearts can still love just fine, and that feeling lonely doesn’t mean they’re actually alone.

Then they’ll laugh an angel laugh, fluff their wings, and dare a new dare all over again.

Love your halo,

Tetraktys: Communing With Nature – A Guide For Modern Pagans

Modern paganism often comes with an appreciation of nature. Indeed, if you identify as being part of any Neopagan religion, there is a good chance that it’s one in which the core tenets have everything to do with nature and that you consider nature as divine in one way or another. If that’s the case, then communing with nature should be part of your spiritual practices, as you would be essentially communing with the divine itself in the process. This article will give you a few tips and a few of my thoughts about it

THE PAST IN THE PRESENT

“If you accept a limiting belief, then it will become a truth for you.”
— Louise Hay

Pick one aspect of your life, e.g. your health, your competence, your prosperity or relationships, and think back to when you were a child. What messages about this subject did you hear from adults at that time that are still playing on your subconscioustape recorder? Messages like: “Men can’t be trusted.” “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” “You’re not smart enough to succeed in business.”

How is your world reflecting your beliefs back to you, today?

“There are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.”

The Sanctuary of Home; Cat’s Angel Message for September 19, 2018

The Sanctuary of Home; Cat’s Angel Message for September 19, 2018 

September’s Theme: This month will involve working on our Life Mission/ Purpose. Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


You can choose to be peaceful right here and now … it has nothing to do with what other people do or think. – Gerald Jampolsky


919: Today we will carry over our message on service. Our focus for today is in the creation of peaceful and healthy living. This starts at home and the angels are asking us to create a peaceful realm that we can look forward to coming home to. Home is our sanctuary and provides a respite from outside stress. Maybe it’s time to do some space clearing, make peace with a family member, make a comfort meal or even do a little fall cleaning. By keeping our homes a place of comfort and healing it creates a positive atmosphere that will benefit you and your loved ones.


The Hindu god Ganesh helps to promote peace and harmony in the home and removes any obstacles that are keeping your home from being the sanctuary it can be. The Roman goddess of hearth and home Vesta helps us to fill our homes with warmth and love, and Archangel Raguel helps us to find peaceful solutions to any disputes or arguments that interrupt the harmony of our home.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Blue Quartz which brings health and happiness and Rose Quartz to fill your space with love .


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others. – Albert Schweitzer


918:  As we start the new week the angels are asking us to consider this: “How can I be of service?” Being of service to others is part of everyone’s Life Purpose or Mission. By helping others the energy that extend flows out and on it’s journey it touches multiple people and situations before returning to us. Sometimes being of service can be big undertaking. However , more often than not it’s the small things that bring the greatest joy and reward. There are many ways to be of service: Helping an elderly relative or neighbor. Maybe you know someone who needs a little mentoring or just someone to talk to. Spending quality time with your family. Volunteering at a local charity or even helping a stranger. Embrace unity and community and keep the energy moving today, not only does it makes others feel good, it makes you feel good too!


Archangel Jophiel, the angel of Illumination and wisdom, fills us with beautiful, loving thoughts and uplifting energy which helps us to create a fresh approach to life. The Egyptian goddess Isis helps us to see with compassion and promotes respect for others and the Ascended Master El Morya supports all who give of themselves to help  others.


Use Apatite to embrace a humanitarian attitude which helps to show where and how we can be of service or Rose Quartz to promote loving, compassion for yourself and for others.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
