Your Daily Love Tarot Card for January 12 is The Sun

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for January 12

The Sun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sun is an invitation to a supportive relationship in which you can be yourself around your significant other. You feel relaxed and loved, with a sense of peace of heart. You’ve struck gold and entered into a new realm. Keep looking if this is not how you feel because it is how things should be. You can’t expect improvement in a long-term union if you do not take effective steps to create it.

Your Daily Tarot Card for January 12 is The Moon

Your Daily Tarot Card for January 12

The Moon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: imagination, dreams, emotion, competition (the dogs), illusion!

Astrological Correspondence: Pisces

The Moon in all its phases represents the world of dreams, illusions, and the subconscious. Traditionally the symbol of the feminine, the card’s meaning encompasses the maternal, the Great Mother, womanhood, and cycles. The Moon is an ambivalent card, and its imagery signifies the difficulty to see things clearly: simultaneously inspiring and lacking courage, enchanting and bewildering, deceptive and receptive – all sides of the same coin. Signaling fluctuating moods and uncertainty we must pay attention to our dreams, confront our subconscious and deal with the issues that come to the surface in order to progress to a higher level of awareness. Being able to put our imagination and creative talents to good use is an added bonus. Negative qualities such as ambiguity, confusion, hidden fears, and deception can be causes for failure.

THE WORDS YOU NEED TO HEAR IN 2019 — BASED ON YOUR ZODIAC SIGN

THE WORDS YOU NEED TO HEAR IN 2019 — BASED ON YOUR ZODIAC SIGN

Mantras have been uttered throughout history—in various religions and all over the world—to offer voice to inner workings and wants. A mantra is a series of words or sounds that can aid you in meditation, and in shifting habitual thought patterns. Mantras are also useful in spell casting, as speaking words aloud—sometimes over and over—is thought to help in manifesting whatever you are seeking into existence. At the very least, a well-chosen mantra can provide a sense of self-confidence and empowerment.

The birth of the New Year is a time of hope, and of preparation for whatever is on the horizon.  A useful mantra can help guide you down life’s path (your path) in 2019.

Here, the mantra that will benefit you the most, based on your sun sign.

 

ARIES

I CONTROL MY INNER FLAME.

You’re the type of person who loves to take on life with the full force of your seemingly never-ending energy. But, while you may have great momentum during the first few months of the year, things will likely slow down when the planets make their transits into the earth and water signs. Don’t get discouraged. Instead, nurture that inner flame, and channel it into the things you can control.

 

TAURUS

I AM STRONG ENOUGH TO WITHSTAND ANY STORM.  

As an earth sign, you try to stay as grounded and are not the biggest fan of change. Sorry, Taurus—prepare to kiss your current life goodbye in 2019 as Uranus enters your sign, where it will remain for the next seven years. By the end of that period, every aspect of the life you know now will be shaken up. Embrace it! Change is not to be feared — it serves to guide us to our higher selves. Like a mighty oak tree, your deep roots allow you to endure any storm.

 

GEMINI

WHY NOT ME?

The needs of loved ones will become a major priority in 2019, but if you lose yourself in taking care of others, you risk not being heard when you express your own needs. Jupiter’s transit into your opposite sign of Sagittarius—where it will stay for the majority of the year—will allow plenty of time for self-reflection. Why not you? The answer: No reason at all! It’s time to take your power back and dazzle the world with your sparkle.

 

CANCER

I DESERVE TO RECEIVE THE LOVE I GIVE TO OTHERS.

As the caretaker of the zodiac, you often devote your energy and boundless love towards others. While we love you for this, 2019 is a year for self-care. Let’s face it, you’re burnt out. Luckily, North Node will be in your sign, guiding you down a path of healing. It’s time to take the love that you give to others and allow it to fill your soul. It won’t be easy, but it’s worth it.

 

LEO

THE FIRE THAT BURNS WITHIN ME LIGHTS MY PATH.  

2019 is a year of transformation for you, Leo. Time to shed your old identity and prepare for your next role, even if it keeps you out of the spotlight for the time being. You’ve never been fearful of change but navigating the darkness of transformation—most likely alone—can be scary. Fear not, as your inner light will continue to shine and guide you towards the next phase of your life’s journey.

 

VIRGO

I RECEIVE ALL THAT I ASK FOR.

Thanks to Jupiter in Sagittarius and Venus’s two conjunctions with the planet for most of the year, this is a time of reconnecting with family and finding a sense of home wherever you travel. While you’ll love the strong familial bonds and the feeling of home you’ve created, you may feel silenced—or that your needs are not being met. It’s okay to ask for what you need; people want to help you just like you help them.

 

LIBRA

I ATTRACT POSITIVE PEOPLE.  

Admit it, Libra, you are a chronic people pleaser—even in regard to those who may not deserve your attention. Luckily, 2019 is the year to cut off anyone who brings you down. With two full moons in your sign during the first half of the year, take a look at your friend group and opt to remove anyone who has proven to be toxic. You’ll be surprised how much lighter you feel once you’ve spoken your truth.

 

SCORPIO

MY VULNERABILITY IS MY STRENGTH.

You pride yourself on being the most mysterious person in the room—being called “hard to read” is a compliment. However, the mysticism you’ve cultivated will not cut it in 2019, as Pluto keeps pushing you to express your truth. This does not come easily to you, but with North Node in Cancer and the three solar eclipses on the Capricorn/Cancer axis, you’ll find that people will love you more for being open with them. Break down your walls and let in love.

 

SAGITTARIUS

I HAVE MAGIC MOVING WITHIN ME.

This is a big year for you! With Jupiter settling into your sign for most of the year, you feel larger than life. There’s nothing you can’t achieve, and a duet of conjunctions with Venus this year will keep the optimism flowing. Be careful not to overdo it, thus conjuring some calamity in your personal life. Honor yourself and your inner magic by taking care of your health and well-being.

 

CAPRICORN

I HONOR MYSELF AND TRUST MY INTUITION.

Sometimes it feels like you are carrying the world on your shoulders, like Atlas of mythology. It’s very hard for you to give up responsibility—or even take a vacation. But if you value your mental health, you need to take some of that weight off your shoulders. While the planets push you into a workaholic realm, use your intuition to make the best decisions. You want to help everyone, but it’s important to stay loyal to yourself.

 

AQUARIUS

REBELLION TAKES DEDICATION.

You hate to play by the rules. So, with Saturn and Pluto enter Capricorn and stay there for most of the year, you may feel restricted and suffocated—which could cause tension between you and any loved ones that don’t share your views. Don’t back down! Use 2019 to carve your own path and find like-minded souls. No one ever started a revolution single-handed. Have faith in your cause.

 

PISCES

I GROUND MYSELF IN AUTHENTICITY.

You’ve always prided yourself on being your authenticity. But with Neptune in your sign, the perception of who you are will become unclear to everyone — including yourself. This disconnect between who you are and who people believe you are could lead to quite the crisis in identity. The only way to avoid distress is self-reflection. Remember who you are at the core of your being, and stay true to that person.

CHINESE NEW YEAR 2019: A CHINESE ZODIAC GUIDE TO THE YEAR OF THE EARTH PIG

CHINESE NEW YEAR 2019: A CHINESE ZODIAC GUIDE TO THE YEAR OF THE EARTH PIG

This year, Chinese New Year (also known as the Lunar New Year) falls on Tuesday, February 5. Though this is a full month after the western celebration of the new year, this holiday marks the change from the year of the earth Dog to the year of the earth Pig.

Most notably, this year is all about devotion to friends and family. Pig years are great for spending time with those you love. Make sure you create space for meals with people who important to you!

Of course, the main thing to watch out for during Pig years is a tendency to overindulge. Keep your spending in check, and at all those meals with your friends and family, watch your portion sizes. Take steps to rid yourself of bad habits and addictions. Keep this in mind, and 2019 can be a very productive year for you. The earth element is practical and fiscally responsible. Take some time to set your goals and look into ways to procrastinate less and to release fears of failure and success. You will likely have increased willpower and focus for your most desired objectives.  Patience will be rewarded and so “slow and steady” wins the race. Chip away at your bigger goals by doing a little bit each day.  

But most of all, connections have the potential to grow stronger, and new, beneficial bonds can be made. Paying things forward, focusing on kindness, and being considerate to others will bring you opportunities this year.  

HONORING CHINESE NEW YEAR

Unlike western traditions like champagne, noisemakers, and fireworks, the traditional ways to mark Chinese New Year tend to be more symbolic, such as wearing something to mark the opportunities coming your way or saying pleasant things to everyone you meet to bring luck to yourself and others.

This day that sets the tone for the rest of the year, so spend some time spreading kindness, offering compliments to others — as well as to yourself. (Sidenote: skip the chicken entree. It’s said if you eat chicken on Chinese New Year, you’ll spend the year scratching in the dirt for your money!)

Read to discover how your Chinese Zodiac sign interacts with the year of the Pig.

 

YEAR OF THE EARTH PIG, BASED ON YOUR CHINESE ZODIAC SIGN

RAT 

Rat sneaks in to steal Pig’s dinner, Pig chases Rat away.  

You need to be quick on your feet this year. But good news! No one’s quicker than lucky Rat. Everything you want is there for the taking but you need to make sure you’re first in line.  

 

OX 

Ox and Pig live happily on the farm together.  

A positive, happy year for Ox natives. The course you set yourself on last year now shows you it was the correct choice to make. The road ahead smooths out and you make great progress.  

 

TIGER 

Tiger and Pig face off and spar… guess who wins?  

It’s a little challenging this year as you seem to be hearing “no” more often than you generally like. However, even taking the smallest amount of action brings you great results. You’ll end the year with a win.  

 

RABBIT 

Rabbits dine well on what falls outside the Pig’s pen. 

A lucky year for Rabbit as you are in harmony with the energy. Your sensitive, intuitive nature causes you to be in the right place at the right time. Finding supportive people to help you is easy this year.  

 

DRAGON 

Mighty Dragon makes his presence known, Pig sleeps through the show. 

A somewhat irritating year for Dragon as all this lazy, indulgent energy doesn’t seem to benefit you and your goals. Fortunately, you can adjust. Soon you’ll see unexpected ways to profit.  

 

SNAKE 

Snake threatens Pig, Farmer kills Snake.

A challenging year for Snake as Pig is the opposing sign. You are not getting much support this year even from those you love. But no matter, you have the power to accomplish many things especially when others underestimate your abilities.  

 

HORSE 

Horse paces in his pen, Pig is happy in his.

This is a year for making adjustments. Horse natives should not lock themselves into long contracts or rash promises. Give yourself the freedom to change and you will attract many opportunities.  

 

GOAT 

Pigs and Goats dine together.

A happy year for peace-loving Goat. You’re in harmony with the energy of Pig. You will receive a lot of interest in your projects and support for your plans. Let others know how they can help you.  

 

MONKEY 

Monkey teases Pig, Pig doesn’t notice. 

A somewhat frustrating year for clever, energetic Monkey. Others nap when you want adventure and fun. The rest of the world may be shocked at your choices this year but you will prosper if you’re true to yourself.  

 

ROOSTER 

Rooster wakes the farm, life moves along pleasantly.

A harmonious year as you find projects and goals you’ve been working on for a while really start to show some results. There are many opportunities for you this year. Expand your circle of friends and you’ll benefit.  

 

DOG 

Dog herds Pig, Pig ignores Dog .

This will be a much easier year for you. You’ve made some changes and wise choices. Now options will present themselves for your career as well as relationships. The road ahead is clear, obstacles are now gone.  

 

PIG 

Pig enjoys the company of other pigs and the party begins.

It’s your year. This is the beginning of your 12-year cycle. Out with the old and in with the new. Let go of anything or anyone who’s been holding you back. As you release what you don’t want, you will be showered with new opportunities. Enjoy.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, January 13

Get A Jump On Tomorrow…..

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, January 13

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

What do you think happens when we worry about things which are not under our control? We lose any control we had and start to feel scared and anxious. So, whatever it costs you in friends and pride you are going to have to say what needs to be said today.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Be gentle with yourself please Aries, as the progress you need to make requires baby steps, not big ones. You’re missing people who used to be a regular part of your life, but evolution is all about growth and moving forward. Embrace this.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

You have not done something you were supposed to do and in the process you have left yourself feeling disappointed. Look at the clock Gemini, you still have time! Children bring joy with something they do in your honour.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Don’t be afraid to tell others what it is you want and expect from them, or you are only going to end up giving some very mixed signals. People are used to a sign such as you wearing their heart on their sleeve, so don’t stop now.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

What is your passion in life Leo and what is it you want to achieve? It is only by answering this question with total honesty that you will be able to commit to the next stage of your life. Not big changes, huge ones Leo!

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

It’s not like you to be shy Virgo, but it would seem that someone most definitely has got you lost for words. Try not to play games tonight, although the moon will be encouraging you! Fact, not fiction will get you what and who you want.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Try not to believe what others say this weekend, as many of the signs really are talking for the sake of it. Wouldn’t it be far better for you to put your time and energy into returning those calls which you owe to several people?

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

You are approaching a really exciting time of your life Scorpio, where you no longer worry so much what other people think about you. Instead, you want to taste success and the things you used to feel fearful of you now embrace.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Try not to be jealous of the attention which others are getting, your turn will come. Truth be told Sagittarius, you should be pleased the other faces in your life are all beginning to get along.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

The way you view yourself is changing and I really like the more confident air which has befallen you. Try not to gang up against a family member who I see has already taken more than they can handle.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

If you can be patient with a close one who has been acting rather strangely of late, then you will learn that it was other issues and not you that were making them act in such a nervous manner. From here on in you work as an unstoppable team.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Have more faith in your work or you are going to end up convincing your close ones that you don’t really want to stay on the path you’re on, when you and I know you’ve merely had a blip.

Born on January 12, Happy Birthday, Dear Capricorn!

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday, Dear Capricorn!

Work hard and party hard with the zodiac’s ambitious Goat


Compassion, as well as competence, makes you an excellent executive. Even if you have a worker-bee job, you do it better than anybody else.

If you were born on January 13, you’re a mover and shaker with boundless energy and charisma that puts you on a path for success. Full of ideas and intelligence, you give 100 percent and expect the same of others. Your biggest challenge is to learn not to push too hard and treat others with the same respect you demand of them. Remember to slow down every once in a while, and give yourself a pat on the back for the hard work you’ve put in.

At your best: Cool, progressive, successful
At your worst: Dogmatic, cold, hasty

More About Capricorn

Tradition is your middle name, Capricorn. And when it comes to birthday celebrations, you’re all about enjoying it in a time honored way. As someone who appreciates everything antique, you might actually be one of the few signs who don’t cringe at the thought of getting older. In fact, it makes you feel more important somehow … as if you are finally morphing into the respected authority figure you strive to be.

Party Responsibly

Even though it’s your birthday, in many ways it’ll still be business as usual for you. You’re one of the most ambitious and responsible signs, and tend to put your professional aspirations above all else. Success is where you aim, and luckily, even though it takes many years and plenty of diligent effort, you typically end up realizing any goal you set for yourself. You are more reserved and cautious than most but that won’t stop you from enjoying your special day. Your approach might be less party animal and more prudent, but that doesn’t mean you don’t know how to have fun. You simply tend to do it on a budget and with a curfew. Hey — there’s a reason why you’re so successful. Knowing your limits is one of them!

If you have one fault it’s that you take life so seriously that occasionally you may fall into fits of melancholy. This is due to the fact that you view life with stark realism, a tendency that leaves little room for imaginings and faith. But at least on your birthday, consider making an exception. When your loved ones light the candles on your cake, go ahead and make a wish. This year, why not even trust that it might come true?

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, January 12

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

There is a really dreamy feel to your chart which may make it hard for you to focus on the tasks at hand. Try to pay attention when others talk though, as Mercury is making us all more honest and open with our feelings.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Someone you thought was going to let you down is in fact set to pleasantly surprise you. Knowing what you want from the future will be important. Remember Taurus, believe you can and you’re half way there!

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

I can see that you feel family has not been much good to you recently, but have you thought about using the fine art of conversation? Taking your time to think before you speak today can help you get your life into perspective.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Wherever you go Cancer, go with all your heart. You find out today that what you thought was fact was actually fiction. Remember you are a high maintenance sign and you can’t and shouldn’t accept anything less.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

Once you choose hope, anything is possible Leo! You have been looking at life as if the glass is half empty, when you should be focusing on the many positives before you since the beginning of this month.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

The way you deal with your day to day life is changing and you no longer feel so challenged by difficult faces you have to deal with on a regular basis. You are able to take everything in your stride. Welcome back!

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

The chance to do a different side of your job is offered by the absence of an important face and should prove to you that you are far more able than you have given yourself credit for. The return of a face in the family who has been absent brings much news.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

There is a touch of notoriety coming to your chart in the days ahead. Don’t worry, for it is most definitely in a good way! Being nice to new faces whose paths you cross in business does much to improve opportunity.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Try not to make judgements on those around you until you find out all the details of what’s occurred in their life. If not, you could find yourself being judged as unfair by those who mean everything to you.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

The dreamers are the saviours of the world, so don’t even think about trying to curb that imaginative nature of yours. You finally begin to understand why family won’t budge on certain subjects, and may even join their side in such discussions.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Someone you thought you meant a lot to has taken a step back from your life and you no longer feel you hold the same importance for them. Things you apply for at this time have a better chance than normal of being a great success.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Try not to worry about what you’ve done (I know you are), but instead try to focus on what can be done from here on in to make your life a better place to be. You can start by admitting what’s not working for you. Ring now to put the spring back in your step.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week Beginning January 13th

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of January 13

Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

Mid-January is a time when there is a sense of stillness in the dark days of winter; yet a murmuring of tiny flowers and shoots amid the rustle of the hedgerow. We know it won’t be long before spring comes, but the month is long and often bleak here in the northern hemisphere.

This week too, the planetary sky reflects our desires on one level. With Mars and Venus in goal-oriented fire signs we crave better love, passion and excitement. With Mercury, the sun and Saturn in earthy Capricorn, we know we must work hard to achieve those desires.

 

ARIES

It’s time to go with the flow and discover a more romantic you. It might seem that the fulfillment you seek is a long way off, however confident you feel about your love life, but in the weeks to come, you will find the journey gets easier, and your heart is on the right track for success.

 

TAURUS

Slowly, you’re wishing for passion again. Sometimes you need to be surrounded by the social throng to feel alive. It’s all about to get better, and soon you will be able to enjoy more romance and less grief.

 

GEMINI

This week, you need more independence and feel it’s time to personally evolve. Now that things have become clearer, romance can grow again. It may actually be that a ‘forever after commitment’ is what you secretly want, and it may just be that’s what you’re going to get sooner than you thought.

 

CANCER

While ideal love is unconditional, ordinary love depends on conditions – in other words we establish personal boundaries about what we accept and need from others. And this week, it’s time to chose carefully, and hopefully opt for the love which allows both of you some space. This isn’t about seeing love as an idealised happy-ever-afterness, but one where you can give of yourself truly to someone, and get back what you truly long for.

 

LEO

So, you decided to be more laid back about a relationship, and tried not to pin someone down to this or that. In fact, you were happy to sit it out and let things evolve at their own pace.  But this week, exciting thoughts arise about how you have to throw yourself into the deep end, and who cares about a conventional approach? Time to take a risk and see how liberating it can be.

 

VIRGO

At last you’re beginning to see how to animate your relationship to include both the security you cherish, and the excitment you desire. Time to admit to yourself that you need some adventure in your love life. This week, you feel as if you are finally in tune with your senses, and that you’re also coming to them too, at last.

 

LIBRA

It’s time to show your partner that you’re alive and very much kicking and it’s time to love with passion and live with intention. If single, look forward to some big changes coming your way, especially if you move out of your comfort zone and embrace the different. It will change your life for the better.

 

SCORPIO

This week you will have silly thoughts like, ‘ does he/she really deserve me?” or, will they tire of me soon?”  Now these are all responses generated by an unconscious fear that you will be rejected, or perhaps you’re not good enough to be loved.  But very soon, you’ll learn that love isn’t about ‘who’s good enough,’ it’s more about who’s willing to love without conditions.

 

SAGITTARIUS

We all have emotional ‘baggage.’ And we all try to dump it, fearful that it’s lingering presence in our hallways means we can’t move forward. But it’s not so much that we’re stuck with what we had, it is the very attachment to the baggage which causes most trouble. This week, you learn to step over the bags in the hall and move out into the big wide world.

 

CAPRICORN

With the planets stirring your heartstrings, at last you can look in the mirror and smile at yourself and know you are loved. Forget the difficult encounters of the past, it’s your newfound heat which will be the catalyst for revitalised passion.

 

AQUARIUS

We all like to believe that one day, if we really truly believe something is right for us, it will happen. And this week, you’re beginning to see that it really could. So smile at yourself, admire who you are and why you are who you are. Repeat aloud that you deserve love, just by virtue of being on this planet.

 

PISCES

It seems at last you have more passion for everything that matters to you. Romantic missions become less impossible and suddenly the world seems a better place. Rather than become a victim of so-called fate, you have a chance to take control of your life, so make a choice.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Saturday, January 12

COSMIC CALENDAR

The arrival of the moon in fiery Aries (12:19 a.m.) can boost your leadership credentials and independent streak. This will be enhanced later on during the monthly lunar conjunction with Mars (4:13 p.m.) — offering a resurgence of energy for favorite athletic interests and exercise routines.

Meanwhile, antique hunters and collectible aficionados gain celestial backing as the sun in Capricorn trines Juno in Taurus (5:08 a.m.) while the moon trines Venus in fire signs (11:21 a.m.). Estate sales and art fairs reveal a rosy glow. Even though the moon-Mars conjunction contains a positive attribute, steer clear of projecting angry feelings on well-meaning dear ones. This is reinforced later on when Venus becomes entangled in a caustic, 45-degree altercation with Pluto (9:20 p.m.). Go out of your way to be extra kind to family members and friends under duress.

[Note to readers: All times are calculated as Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Wishing All Our Little Snow Bunnies A Very Beautiful & Blessed Saturday Morn’!

1. Wettbewerb 2019 der Gruppe "Master of the Blingees"

Good morning to all our little snow bunnies. How y’all doing today? I hope you aren’t snowed in some place. Our weather forecasters amaze the crap out of me. I have found out with all the metal in my body, I can tell weather better than they can. Our “supposedly” snow storm pooped out! When we went to bed last night, I turned the porch light on. It was snowing like the devil, great big fluffy flakes. I figured this morning we would get up and we would have snow up to our rumps. WRONG! The only sign we have that it actually snowed and that we weren’t crazy last night is a shed in the back with snow on its roof. This is the second time this season, our weather forecasters have called for a “severe” snow storm to come through. Both times they have missed the mark. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining at all. I figure before the season is over, we will get hit with a 6 foot snow and won’t see daylight for a week. We are way overdue for a good snow storm. It seems around here, our weather runs in cycles. About every seven years, the seasons change. When the seasons change that is when you can expect bad weather. This is suppose to be the year our seasons change for us. This being the first of January, we are not out of the woods yet. So I guess I better keep my big mouth shut or else I will end up with a snowball in it, lol!

I have two things on my mind this morning, both of them have to do with the government. I know and you know, I don’t like to mix politics and witchcraft anymore than the next witch but….the government shut down has been weighing heavy on my mind. I am not going to play the blame game, whether it is the Republicans’ fault or the Democrats’ faults, I really don’t care. What I do care about is all the government workers that are not getting paid right now. I know as many followers and members as The WOTC has, there has got to be several of you who are currently being effected by this shut-down. I won’t play the blame game but I do think it is horrible to put the citizens of this country in the middle of this mess. I wonder how all the politicians in our country would like it, if all of a sudden their paychecks stopped rolling in. I don’t think they would. In fact, I don’t believe any of them could live the way most of us “average joes” do. I know what is like to live from paycheck to paycheck. In today’s economic, that is about all you can do anymore. You can’t save a dollar for a rainy day because something always comes up to take that dollar.

When I was watching the News (got to stop watching the News, it always gets me in trouble), I saw numerous people talking about how they were going to feed their children, how they were going to keep a roof over their heads and many more stories just like these. You know to live in the greatest country on the planet, this is pitiful and that is an understatement. It troubles my soul when I see these people because if the government don’t get its head out of its ass and do something, things are going to get much worse. People aren’t going to stand by and watch their children go hungry or lose everything they worked for all their life. I don’t believe the elected officials of our country would want a person like me for president. The first thing I would do is to stop their paychecks. If the American people aren’t getting paid, then they wouldn’t either. Hell, they would lose their minds if they had to live like we do. Plain and simple, they have lost touch with reality. They are playing politics with our lives.

There is going to be a poll at the end of this to see how many of you are directly effected by this shut-down. I want to know. I have a plan cooking in the back of my little brain and I decided it was time to act on it. I can’t stand by and watch potentials members of our family go hunger, lose their houses, can’t pay their bills or whatever else they need. I just can’t do it. My plan, and you can tell me what you think, is to create a fund for all those out of work right now due to the shut down and facing hardship. The funds will be donated from our members and others who are working and can afford to give a little to help others out during this crisis. And yes, it is a crisis. I know we have children going to bed every night hungry in this country and that is a shame. Now to add more children and families to that growing list, it is unthinkable. The money or donations wouldn’t even go into our PayPal account. I know Lady Beltane has opened a PayPal account for the magazine that is suppose to be coming out in a few months. I was going to see if we could use her account for this fund. Next thing after we get some donations collected would be for those workers in need to verify that they are government employees. How to do this, simple. Just email us a pay stub with everything blocked out, except the name of the government agency and the $0.00 balance you received on your last pay check. It probably won’t be much that we collect but perhaps it will help someone keep their lights on or buy a few groceries for their families. Everyone here has helped us when we have been in a tight spot, now it is our turn to return the favor. What I would like to know, would you be willing to help out our brothers & sisters currently trapped in the middle of political politics? Like I stated the money or donations will not go into our PayPal account, it will go into another one. We will gladly release every detail about where your donations have went and how and what they were spent for. Now will you help if we can get this up and running.

We have a very large family across the net, I know in this time of crisis we can pull together and help those who need it most. Just put yourself in their shoes, no money coming in, kids to feed, chance of losing your home, and there seems no hope in sight. How would you feel? I know how it feels and it is scary as hell. I want to know if this is something you would be willing to help out with? These are our brothers and sisters, proud Americans who are now political pons. They need our help and I am asking you, would you be willing to help if we can get this up and running?

This is just one of the things I wanted to talk to you about. The other I will wait a day or two on, it involves starting our own political movement.  Yes, you heard right, a political movement of our own. I am sick of the way things are going in this country. I am sure most of you are also. It seems no one, Democrat or Republican, can get their act together to change things, so it is time for a new voice to be heard. That voice is ours. I will give you more details on it later.

Now if you don’t mind and have a minute, would you please take the brief poll below. It will give us an idea of how many displaced workers we have in our community and how much we are going to have to raise to even start to help them out.

Goddess bless our country and our brothers and sisters currently caught up in this political mess. Let them know they are not alone and we are trying our best to find a way to help them. Let them stand strong in their faith and in their brothers and sisters of The Craft. 

So Mote It Be.

*After Thought* I forgot what really, really rubbed me the wrong way till I went back and read what I wrote. The other day I read that the government was giving their employees ideas on how to survive without paychecks. REALLY! I am going to call it what it is, “a crock of shit!” To tell people to have yard sales or garage sales, babysit, walk the neighbor’s dog or do handyman work, really! Are these idiots in Washington that far out of touch with reality? And how dare they tell these people that want to work and have worked for good money to go out and “walk a dog.” Who the hell do they think they are? I wonder how dear Chuck or Nancy would like to be told to “go walk a dog?” Nancy is not one of my favorite people. I would love to see that woman walking a dog, in fact, I would pay to see her walk a dog. She needs to walk her butt out the door with several others of those up there in Washington right now.
