Peace and Remembrance
This is the original cross-quarter day between the autumnal equinox and winter solstice. It is known as Martinmas, after St. Martin, and is observed with a traditional meal of salted(or preserved) food. Peace vigils are held at 11:11 AM to commemorate the 1918 for or meditate on peace on earth. The numerological significance of 11/11 is particularly powerful, since 11 is a “master number,” signifying both good and evil, while the combined numerals give a key of 4, representing the earth, the seasons and the phases of the moon.
Harness today’s numerological power by meditating on peace throughout the world. Women should invoke the planets Pluto and Neptune, the element of water and the darkness and silence of the night to connect with the inner goddess, men should focus on their anima or feminine side.

Choose a positive response
No matter what happens, you can respond in whatever way you choose. So make your response the most positive one for every person it affects.
There’s nothing to be gained by adding more negativity on top of negativity. You have the opportunity to break the pattern.
Instead of responding to anger with more anger, challenge yourself to respond with understanding and compassion. When you’re tempted to respond with frustration, make the more positive choice to respond with patience.
For your world to be a more positive place, you must take responsibility for putting more positive energy into it. Though a positive response may be the more difficult one, it is also the more valuable choice in the long run.
Rather than choosing a response based on what has happened, choose your response based on the direction you wish to go. Even when life has let you down, your best choice is a positive response that creates a more positive future.
Each response to life is an opportunity to make progress. Choose a positive response, again and again, and create a much more positive world.

Wishing you and yours a very Blessed and Relaxing Weekend!
Walk out in the woods or forest and take a mini-retreat. Really you don’t have to go out in the woods, got a quiet place in the house? Use it! You will be amazed how you will feel afterwards. Letting go of all your emotions, anger and anything that has upset you since your last retreat. You need to take one a least every month. It helps to draw you closer to the Goddess. And being a child of Her’s, She is delighted when we try to make that connection.
Have a very blessed weekend, my brothers and sisters,
