Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Winter Solstice

Today is Yule--better known as Winter Solstice.

Beginning today and for a 3 day period the Sun & Earth relationship will cause the Sun to appear to stand still in the sky. This is the coding: Sol is Sun, Sistere means stand still, and this is why we call it the Solstice. After the 3 days, the Sun will appear to move again, and this is why we celebrate its 'birth' on Christmas Day.

I feel blessed to be alive on such a Sacred Day and to once again celebrate The Season Of Light!

Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Discernment

Several weeks ago I was presented with an opportunity to use my god-given gift of discernment. We all have discernment, but sometimes (as in my case!), I'm not ALWAYS using this gift, and thus, I get entrapped/sucked-in/ensnared by information coming from authoritative sources. In other words, I buy-into someone else's truth other than my own.

These sources usually appear credible and trustworthy, but there will be *something* which sends a red flag alert that something is *off* with this source.

And it is at this point that your discernment surfaces. In my case, I wanted to believe this source. It took me awhile before my gut and discernment kicked in. What a blessing to employ this gift and become balanced once again!

Full Moon and Meteors Make Me Smile

Full Moon over Maui image: Kuanyin Moi

What are you doing the next couple of nights? I'm gonna enjoy the "Long Nights Moon" (Full Moon) and this:

"GEMINID METEOR SHOWER: The annual Geminid meteor shower peaks on Dec. 13th and Dec. 14th when Earth passes through a stream of debris from extinct comet 3200 Phaethon. Bright moonlight will reduce the number of visible meteors from the usual 100/hr to only 20/hr or so. That's still a nice show. For best results, watch the sky starting 10 pm local time on Saturday night (Dec 13th) until dawn on Sunday morning (Dec. 14th)." via Space Weather

I watched an incredible meteor during the recent Venus/Jupiter conjunction--it streaked right between the two planets in the night sky. Wow!

Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Relationships

I'm grateful this Blog Your Blessings Sunday for the blessings of solid relationships that weather the stormy times, the rocky times.

Love that blooms again after a long, hard winter

Love which grows from conditional to unconditional

Love which transcends the pettiness

Love which is re-born

"Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings." Anais Nin

Pluto Into Capricorn

I've been pondering the entrance of Pluto into Capricorn, and then I found an excellent summary and article about this sign change, so I'd like to share the link with you.

Here's a snippet:

"The New World was created during the last Pluto-in-Capricorn cycle, when American colonists revolted against the old rule of England. The Newer World will likely be one in which each of us is like a unique gear in a beautiful timepiece, working in unison towards universal goals. When we individually raise our own consciousness, it acts like a magic fulcrum - the whole planet is lifted."

This was written by Rick DiClemente with Cheryl Crise and you can find the rest of the article here.
