Merry Christmas in 2011! This year has been full of Blessings that I am very grateful for~ the fact that we live free in the USA is high on the list! I am also very grateful for family, friends, health and wealth! The gifts given at this time of year are the symbols of appreciation for the present (time). Even though these seem to be hard times, the feelings of being blessed, loved and appreciated are accepted with the greatest gratitude, and are timeless!

Here we are at Christmas Eve already! The New Moon in Capricorn tonight is very auspicious for powerful intentions and manifestations to move out of this "old" year into the new year, smoothly, easily and effortless! Any new moon is great, but this one is especially spectacular because Santa is coming (even now he is being tracked by radar at NORAD) and we are all getting gifts. The present is always the gift we recieve...

Tonight is the Winter Solstice! Also known to be the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere, longest day of the year in the southern hemisphere. We have a long, cold, snowy night here in Colorado. Happy Solstice to all and to all a good night! Time to snuggle inside and hibernate until tomorrow...

Today, the Geminids are in the night sky, and Mercury goes direct, after being retrograde for 3 weeks. The meteors from the Geminid shower are slow moving in December and peak on Dec 13-14, with the highest intensity in the early morning of Dec 14. This shower seems to be intensifying every year and recent showers have 120–160 meteors/hour with optimal conditions, around 2am to 3am local time. Geminids were first observed only 150 years ago, much more recently than other showers such as the Perseids and Leonids. In those days, the Geminid meteor showers, arriving so close to Christmas, were revered by people as signs of peace and the prophecy of rebirth, some thought the Geminids brought fear, representing cleansing the human experience by our creator. With Mercury going direct and forward, maybe there was some Mercurial technique of how we have always been and continue to be "guided to our Soul," since Mercury, or Hermes, is known as "The Guide of Souls." Also known as the "Divine Trickster" giving the ability to coordinate, organize, put things together, understand the whole and the parts, seeing the process and the larger cycles of life. The better to see what is really important during this season!
