- Boris Pasternak, Dr. Zhivago

Spirit Library: Resolution & Closure
This is a transitionary time where we are moving away from what is known and further into the unknown. The incoming energies are bringing some deep and profound inner shifts which are inviting us to restructure our lives in ways that are more aligned with our soul. As a result, we are being called to resolve and bring closure to issues that continue to keep us bound to what has been.

Learn Religions: Celebrating Imbolc With Kids
Imbolc is a festival of fire and light – it’s one of the cross quarter days – and falls on February 2 in the northern hemisphere (it’ll be on August 1 if you’re one of our readers below the equator).

EarthSky News: Meet the Crab Nebula, remnant of an exploding star
On July 4, 1054 CE, Chinese astronomers noticed the sudden appearance of a star blazing in the daytime sky. It likely outshone the brightest planet, Venus, and was temporarily the third brightest object in the sky, after the sun and moon. This “guest star” remained visible in daylight for some 23 days. At night it shone near Tianguan – a star we now call Zeta Tauri, in the constellation of the Taurus the Bull – for nearly two years. Then it faded from view. Today, we know it was a supernova.

SPACE TO EXPLORE
“No one can find his work, what he really wants to put all of himself into, when everything he does he is made to do by others. This kind of searching must be done freely or not at all.”
— John Holt
We all need space — free from demands, deadlines, expectations and judgments — to explore who we are and what life is all about. Free time, with absolutely no agenda, is rich with potential. How can we grow if we have no space and freedom to dream?
“Deny children — or anyone else — the chance to do ‘nothing,’ and we may be denying them the chance to do ‘something’ — to find and do any work that is truly important to themselves or to someone else.”
— John Holt

“Convictions are the mainsprings of action, the driving powers of life. What a man lives are his convictions.”
-Bishop Francis Kelly
I love the word conviction because it is so strong and clear. It’s more than a belief, it’s a knowingness. There’s no room for doubt. Our convictions move us forward.

Daily Tarot: The Tower
If any problems arise today, they will probably come out of being careless about something simple and normally no trouble at all. Carelessness is the chief threat to having things go smoothly. Even if only small things are lost, broken, or need to be redone, it can make tomorrow even more of a mess than today might be. Pay attention to details, take your time and do your best.
