ThoughtCo: Working With the Gods and Goddesses
There are literally thousands of different deities out there in the Universe, and which ones you choose to honor will often depend significantly upon what pantheon your spiritual path follows. However, many modern Pagans and Wiccans describe themselves as eclectic, which means they may honor a god of one tradition beside a goddess of another. In some cases, we may choose to ask a deity for assistance in a magical working or in problem solving. Regardless, at some point, you’re going to have to sit and sort them all out.

EarthSky News: Watch for the moon and the Twins
On November 15 and 16, 2019 – before going to bed, look for the moon in your eastern sky. It’ll be a bright waning gibbous moon, and you might notice two bright stars in its vicinity. These stars are noticeable for being both bright and close together on the sky’s dome, and that is why – in legends of the sky – they often represent Twins.

PROBLEMS OR SOLUTIONS?
“If you expect the best, you will be the best. Learn to use one of the most powerful laws in this world; change your mental habits to belief instead of disbelief. Learn to expect, not to doubt. In so doing, you bring everything into the realm of possibility.”
— Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
Stop and be aware! Have you been thinking about what you want or what you don’t want?
It’s so easy to lock our minds onto problems rather than opening to receive solutions. But what we think is what we get. This is so important! If we continually focus on problems and negatives, that’s where we’ll stay.
“No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.”
— Helen Keller

“Individuals are considered sincere when there is little or no discrepancy between the goals they seek and those they claim to be seeking.”
-Leonard W. Doob
This is basically talking about the difference between what we say and what we do. And this is where I think a lot of politicians get themselves into trouble – and how politicians in general have gotten their reputation of being insincere! We wonder what their true motives are. We wonder if they’re just telling us what they think they want us to hear. Trying to sort out the real from the fake, or the sincere from the insincere is a big job. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could really just take each person at his or her word? Unfortunately, I think the world has a long way to go in that area. But by understanding the need for sincerity, and practicing it ourselves, we’re making a difference that in time will make a big impact.

This is one of those days when everything is up in the air and you doubt that you could do much even if you tried. Nonetheless, things can go well when some unexpected good luck comes your way. Your carefree attitude can attract some unexpected help to keep you going and to make things interesting if not fun. Uncertainty can be inspiring in its own way.
