New Years 2013 - No more resolutions

The New Years Eve tradition.
We make resolutions.
We resolve to quit smoking.
To lose weight.
To get out of debt.
And on it goes...

Sometime around February
most resolutions are forgotten.
Gone with the wind.

Sometimes we feel as though we've failed.
Other times we laugh it off because for most of us -
We don't really take them seriously.
We don't put much credence in them.
Perhaps the whole concept of making a "resolution"
sets us up for failure.
By definition Resolution means : Commitment, Determination
It also means : A verdict or Judgement
Then there are some definitions related medical - we'll skip those
for now!
It's not a fun word.
Doesn't sound "happy"
It reminds me of those old movies or speeches
back in school -
"With hard work and determination,
You too can achieve your goals"
Bleh...It may be true but it's oh so boring!

New Years Eve is a time of celebration,
Those resolutions, not so fun.
I choose to bring in the New Calendar year with joy.
I choose to focus on My achievements of the past year -
Maybe I didn't lose the 10lbs I set out to

but I lost 4.
That's an achievement.
Didn't quite get out of debt but paid off 1 credit card?
That's an accomplishment.
This New Years Eve
I make no resolutions.

This Year I celebrate My accomplishments,
I Honor who I am and I resolve to accomplish what I desire.
This New Year,
May you honor all you've accomplished!

A Quick Tip for Keeping Your Space Sacred with White Sage

White Sage is great for removing negativity & quick cleansing.
Traditionally used to "smudge".
Here's a tip We use around My home -
Hang a small cluster of White Sage in the doorway of family rooms or
heavily trafficked areas.

Leave the cluster for 1 full moon cycle.
In other words, If You hang the White Sage Cluster in the New Moon,
You keep it up through the Dark Moon.
What do you do next?
Take the White Sage down,
Bring it OUTSIDE and burn it!
burn it in Your home.
When You bring the Sage outside to burn,
You are burning off any negative energies that have been collected
in the home.

If You'd like to see more on cleansing Your space

Please Be mindful -Purchase White sage from a sustainable source!

Wheel of the year tarot Deck

Many people have been asking,
"What deck is that?  It's beautiful"
Yes it is.
Although it took me a little while to decide that -
I purchased the deck maybe 6 months ago.
It languished in the back of the closet,
Along with quite a few other decks I never use.

A cleaning binge came along.
I felt the energy needed to be refreshed.
A good Spiritual house cleaning was in order.
I also had been feeling the energy of some of the decks
I was currently using needed a recharging,

even a much needed break.
So I went through My collection of decks.
Among the Tarot decks I decided to bring into the light of day,
The Wheel of the Year from Lo Scarabeo.

Why didn't I use it when first purchased?
I came across it online.
Loved the color & was impressed by 1 or 2 cards,
So I purchased it.
When it arrived & I thumbed through it,
It seemed a bit "cartoonish". 
I just couldn't connect to the artwork.
Without ever using it, I tossed it aside.

When the cleaning binge arrived,
I forced Myself to try a reading with it.
I don't know how wise a choice it was at that moment -
Given it was for a paying client!
I did explain this was a new deck & I may have to switch
in the middle.
To My surprise, the reading -
well it was incredible.
As I began to use it more often,
I've become enchanted with it's vibrant color, artwork &
"Feel Good" energy.
The clients love it too.
Would I recommenced it?
However... If you are a novice, and depend upon
the LWB - this may not be the deck for you.

Client reading & a message for 12/21/12

Today while doing a reading for a client,
I pulled this pair of cards.
Immediately I heard the following :

The winter solstice will be a time of change brought about by astrological alignment. Look to the sky.

Then I realized the world is number 21.

Now, I don't put much stock in the whole 12/21 thing.
The world certainly is not going to end, at least that's My opinion!
Something is up - perhaps literally.
The message may be to simply look at the night sky &
Be treated to a wondrous display.
Perhaps 12/21/12,
The Winter Solstice will be a time of change.
I'm not sure what is to come,
But I am sure I will be looking up at the night sky
This Solstice Eve!

Holiday Message - Sabian Symbol Gemini 27

Yesterday Morning I was trying to figure what message
to share for the holiday season.
I realized since what I choose to speak about is Spirituality,
It is perhaps best to ask Spirit for guidance.
Sabian symbols.
The answer will come from the symbols.
I pulled a symbol & received:

Gemini 27
A gypsy coming out of the forest

Interesting. What could this possibly have to do with the holidays,
But the first word I heard was "Stress", followed by alienation.
Gypsies' have not been accepted into society.
They live on the outskirts.
Mostly banding together with their own "kind'.
Family is important.

But what about the gypsy coming out of the forest?
No mention of a caravan, or fellow gypsies.
Just one lone person coming alone. Perhaps feeling
like they don't belong.

Many people feel alone during the holidays.
That loneliness & isolation can be overwhelming.
It can led to depression, even suicide.
The suicide rates go up alarmingly during the holidays.

Years, perhaps centuries ago people gathered together.
The shared what they had not only with family but with friends,
With neighbors, with the community.

It was essential to survival,
Not just of individuals but of entire societies.

We have strayed far from those roots.
Yes, there are soup kitchens
Yes there are holiday gift drives
But perhaps it is time
We set another place at our table for that annoying relative,
that lonely elderly neighbor or coworker
Who may just be spending the holidays alone.

Alienation can do terrible things.
From causing one to individual to harm
themselves or many,
To causing war among nations.
Perhaps if enough of Us set that extra plate,
this world may begin to be a different place.

A Holiday Wish for Peace

I'm a Pagan.
It doesn't mean I have no religion.
It simply means that My path may be different then yours.
I see Spirit as The Goddess, The Great Mother.
It doesn't mean I am Godless, it simply means

I see that amazing & beautiful energy
as "SHE".
I don't bash another religion or
Spiritual path simply because I don't understand it.
Neither do I fear another path
because I may not understand it's customs.
I celebrate Yule,
but I also join in with friends, family & loved ones
who choose to celebrate other traditions.
Wish me a happy Hanukkah, a Merry Christmas, I will wish you the same.
For this one month,
Let's share & respect one another's path.
For 1 very short month,
Let's not blame one another's religion
For 1 short month,
Let us truly believe in
"Peace on Earth"
For if We can not get along for 1 short month,
We will never know peace.
I wish You above all, Peace!
