A Little Humor for Your Day: Church of All Worlds Ten Commandments

Church of All Worlds Ten Commandments


… from the CAW membership newsletter, Winter, 1993
What follows is meant entirely tongue in cheek.


  1. This is the first commandment: Be excellent to each other. Thou shalt have no first commandment but this.
  2. If thou carest not for It, thou canst have none of It.
  3. Playeth thou nice and avoid the reading of Vogon poetry; it is a vexation to the soul.
  4. Speaketh thou clearly and slowly and not with thy mouth full. When laughing at sermons, blow not chunks upon the clergy, neither woofeth thy cookies in far trajectories for, yea, robes are expensive and dry cleaning dear.
  5. Freakest thou not yon mundanes overmuch for, verily, they whine piteously and wax sorely pissed.
  6. Honor thy Planet and Her creations that thy days be long and thy nights be worth spending at clam bakes. Cleaneth up after thyself and turneth thou down unused appliances. We meaneth this.
  7. Believeth not what thou witness on television but for Star Trek. Verily, skippeth thou all television but for Star Trek.
  8. Where applicable, maketh thou love, not war. Where not applicable, maketh thou love noisily.
  9. Shareth thy bounty with thy friends that they may wax bountiful. Yea, then thou mayest shareth thy bountiful friends with still more friends to create yet more bounty. Invite the clergy to such… uhh… sharings.
  10. Might dost not maketh right. Nay, ’tis but truth dost maketh right. But, by the Goddess, we shall be persuaded by all forms of beauty and even unto the finest of celebrations thereof.

–Adam Walks Between Worlds

Your Daily Planet Tracker for Jan. 9: Moon In Pisces

The Moon in Pisces: Intuitive, Empathetic, Imaginative

January 9 – January 12, 2019

Tarot.com Staff

Before we talk specifically about the Moon in Pisces, let’s talk about the Moon for a moment. Astrologers consider the Moon a planet, and it’s the fastest moving of all of them. Because it moves so quickly, the Moon passes through each of the 12 zodiac signs once every month. Just as the Sun has a placement in our birth chart, so does the Moon.

When the Moon is in Pisces

No matter what Sun sign you are, for a couple of days a month we all feel a little bit like a Pisces. When the Moon is in the whimsical sign of Pisces, you’ll find yourself drifting and dreaming. Forget that pressured series of events in your day planner, and don’t bother checking your watch. This lunation will have you more concerned with the thoughts that are dancing through your mind than the realities of your everyday life. Your intuition will be heightened, and you’ll accomplish more by letting your instincts guide you.

Because emotions are on overdrive during the Pisces Moon, you’ll have a sensitivity and receptivity to the world around you. This will be a time when you’ll feel sentimental, and wanting to connect with your loved ones in an effort to be closer to them. Don’t be surprised if you get a little misty during television commercials — this is just how this Moon affects us.

New Moon in Pisces

New Moons are always a time of new beginnings, and the New Moon in Pisces inspires us to imagine the future we want. Write down what it is you’ve been dreaming of and what’s stopping you from getting it. This is the time when we overcome our fears so that we can begin manifesting the things we’ve fantasized about.

The Pisces New Moon is also a period of profound healing. If you’ve been wounded emotionally or spiritually, this is when you will focus on your regrets, your anger, your insecurities, and your doubts. This is a good time to meditate or take a walk. These moments of solitude will allow you to go within and reconnect with yourself so you can patch up old wounds that have been lingering.

Full Moon in Pisces

The Pisces Full Moon is a time of compassion. When the empathy of the Pisces Moon combines with the skills of the opposing Virgo Sun, we truly have the best of both worlds. What these signs have common is a sense of service. This Full Moon reminds us that we don’t have to be precise to be helpful, and that making an error with a loving attitude is sometimes more beneficial than perfect behavior done begrudgingly.

The Full Moon in Pisces turns our simple thoughts into vivid fantasies. We might feel like we’re in a cosmic tug of war where we’re being pulled between idealism and reality. It may seem as though we’re being forced to choose sides, but the point of this lunation is to put ideals and inspiration into concrete forms so we can bring our dreams down to earth.

Your Daily Tarot Love Card for January 9th is The Tower

Daily Love Tarot

The Tower

Resentment that builds walls that keeps others we want in, out, needs healing today. Resentment shows in tension in a face that rarely smiles. The Tower urges you to start working now and you are one day closer to a loving, soul mate union. If your long-term relationship is undergoing a rough patch, talk about the things that bother you. Anger kills passion. You need to encourage them to talk to you.

Tarot Card of the Day for January 9 is The Hermit

Tarot Card of the Day

The Hermit


The challenge of The Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals, and nature herself.

While an hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit Tarot cards, more modern cards have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with nature.

The universe is trying to send you a message!
