February 3 – Daily Feast

These are no longer ordinary times, and many circumstances we thought would never change, are changing. The innocent times, the good natured humor of life has been covered over with suggestive jokes empty of meaning. The ground is shifting under our feet and we are having to learn to walk a new way. Few things are permanent. We are born of change, but we still have to keep a commonsense attitude or we can lose our footing. We need to prove, long before we accept something as fact, that it is true. If it is right, it can be proved. Much is a mystery to us. But to the Tsilagi – Cherokee – silence is golden. We speak little and listen long. Words are important in songs and in ceremonies – and in general conversation as well. It is wise to save words and use them only when they can be effective.

Goddess Grant Me Protection From The Outside World

Witchy Comments
Goddess, Give me protection from the outside world,

Let whatever people say about me not hurt,

Let whatever I fear not bother me,

Let all the mixed up feelings inside be released without harm,

Goddess, you see my pain,

I am thy child, I am thy soul,

I need a dream to cast away this pain,

Something to soothe my soul,

Give me protection from the outside world.

About This Day, November 29th, Black Friday 2013

November 29th

Black Friday 2013


That the day after Thanksgiving is the “official” start of the holiday shopping season may be linked together with the idea of Santa Claus parades. Parades celebrating Thanksgiving often include an appearance by Santa at the end of the parade, with the idea that ‘Santa has arrived’ or ‘Santa is just around the corner’ because Christmas is always the next major holiday following Thanksgiving.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many Santa or Thanksgiving Day parades were sponsored by department stores. These include the Toronto Santa Claus Parade, in Canada, sponsored by Eaton’s, and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade sponsored by Macy’s. Department stores would use the parades to launch a big advertising push. Eventually it just became an unwritten rule that no store would try doing Christmas advertising before the parade was over. Therefore, the day after Thanksgiving became the day when the shopping season officially started.

Later on, the fact that this marked the official start of the shopping season led to controversy. In 1939, retail shops would have liked to have a longer shopping season, but no store wanted to break with tradition and be the one to start advertising before Thanksgiving. President Franklin D. Roosevelt moved the date for Thanksgiving one week earlier, leading to much anger by the public who wound up having to change holiday plans. Some even refused the change, resulting in the U.S. citizens celebrating Thanksgiving on two separate days. Some started referring to the change as Franksgiving.

Your Horoscope Holiday Heads-Up

Your Horoscope Holiday Heads-Up


Each sign of the zodiac embodies certain challenges and qualities. When we  know what these are, our horoscope sun sign can give us such a useful heads-up  on some things to watch out for in this sometimes-stressful holiday season! For  instance, is your sign prone to over-socializing? You may want to rethink going  to that thirteenth party. Does your sign need to run the show? You might  delegate some of the responsibility before you burn right out.

Find out what your horoscope can tell you about the best way to have truly  happy holidays. We even include a helpful holiday affirmation for each sun sign,  right here:

Aries, March 21-April 19:  Watch out for your tendency to think that only you  can do everything: avoid holiday burn-out by delegating responsibilities  whenever you can. And be sure to get plenty of outdoor exercise to help keep  your fiery nature on an even keel: you don’t want an angry remark of yours to  cause any rifts this holiday season. The holidays will still be beautiful  even if everything doesn’t get done.

Taurus, April 20-May 21:  Be aware that you can get just a little set in your  ways around seasonal traditions. This year, try something new! Even if it only  involves buying a tree you can plant after the holidays rather than a cut tree,  or using your grandmother’s tablecloth on the festive table rather than the one  you’ve used for years, remember: Change is good: embrace it.

Gemini, May 22-June 20:  Be sure to take time as often as possible to ground  and center yourself so that you can be deeply present in the moment rather than  flitting from thing to thing. The deepest and most meaningful experiences are  often found in stillness.

Cancer, June 21-July 22:  This year, do what you can to accept and love your  sensitive self as fully as possible; cultivate a positive relationship with the  image in your mirror no matter how many cups of eggnog or slices of mince pie  you consume. Remember, the body is the home and sanctuary of the soul. And  there‘s no place like home.

Leo, July 23- Aug 22:  This year, you may want to try creating opportunities  for others to shine as brightly as you do: try coaching a children’s choir, or  getting a group together to put on a benefit performance for a worthy cause.  When we encourage others to glow, the whole world grows a little  brighter.

Virgo, Aug 23-Sept 22:  Your attention to detail could get compulsive unless  you take some time to deeply enjoy the pleasures of the season. You might want  to read up on essential oils or herbs that are seasonal allies. The earth and  all her gifts are sacred and give me comfort.

Libra, Sept 23-Oct 22:  Wanting to be all things to all people could lead you  into an exhausting round of social obligations unless you set time aside for  your own peace of mind. Maintaining a personal sense of balance is my most  important task. It is not my sole responsibility to create harmony in every  social situation.

Scorpio, Oct 23-Nov 21:  Your easily-offended nature will have many  opportunities to take umbrage unless you detach and try not to take things so  personally during the festive season. Find heart’s ease in the deeper  spiritual meaning of the holidays.

Sagittarius, Nov 22-Dec 21:  Be wary of spreading yourself so thin and being  the sparkling light in so many people’s lives that you neglect your own fire.  Rekindle your spirit’s flame in the soothing dark and silence.

Capricorn, Dec 22-Jan 19:  If you feel you must work hard and harder during  the holidays, please do yourself and your loved ones a favor and take a break.  Simply being, not producing or doing, is my first priority.

Aquarius, Jan 20-Feb 18:  Be sure to set aside enough quiet time with your  nearest and dearest; use your imagination to invent meaningful activities to  share with those you love. I can use my creativity in the service of deeper  connection with my loved ones.

Pisces, Feb 19-March 20:  Your empathy with the sufferings of others will  simply bring everyone around you down unless you find ways to channel it  helpfully. Find something you can do on a local level to reach out and be of  service. I can share in human joys as well as human suffering.
