I appears you can make notes of additional holidays you would like to celebrate around the outer rim.

I really like the look of this one too, but that's because I love trees:

I would love a cross stitching pattern like that!

You're right, that would be stunning, especially in a large size. You could even stitch the names and birthdays of family members on it.

I ordered one of the posters last night. I'm excited to get it!

Here and reading. I'm an LDS mama and this thread is really nice to see. I often think to myself, "If I wasn't LDS, then I'm sure I'd be Pagan." LOL. Now, I see that there are other like-minded mamas! Hooray!

Nothing to add--just wanted to say that I'm here and that I'm excited to read what everyone has to offer.

I just ordered the gorgeous earth cycle calendar too, Jenn. I can't wait to get it!!
post #105 of 165
That is a neat calendar!

Here to say hi and to join the thread! I've been looking for others like me.

xposting from the Pagan thread because I could use all the prayers/positive energy I can get.

Yesterday was a craptastic day energy wise. I've been dealing with a toxic friend and things finally kind of came to a head...after things that happened yesterday it should be pretty much done and I felt mostly ok with that, but my DH and her DH are friends and DH's pretty upset and wants to try and fix things. So I feel bad for him and not quite sure what's what right now. An entire department was laid off at his work, including 3 guys who came in at the same time he did. I lost my job (at least temporarily) because the lady I nanny for is struggling to keep her house right now (and she can have her grandma come watch her kids for free, she just really doesn't like to do that because grandma causes more problems than she solves) so I'm out until at least February, but probably longer. And then we found out that we're getting a good $2000 less back in taxes than we normally do (and were planning for) because we got some bad advice last year. Our tax return should've paid off all our debt and gotten us on our way to a downpayment so we can get out of our apartment this year. Instead it's barely paying off the debt and we won't even have a full emergency fund in our savings when it's all said and done - which also means no fun money. That really sucks for me because DH just bought a $500 computer that he needed for a game coming out with the belief we'd pay it off with taxes and then I'd get some money to spend on myself. We'll pay it off, but there's no money left for me.

So...happy thoughts today! A friend of mine suggested writing an "ad" or a "recipe" for a new, positive relationship in my life. And I definitely need to do something about attracting financial stability.

Love and light, hun! I am so so sorry you are going through this. I have been there and just reading it stirred up the emotions I have felt in that position. All that memememe just to say I'M HERE!!

jenneology - I think you posted that earth cycle calendar before and I have been thinking about it ever since. Maybe I just need to get it... and the tree poster is gorgeous! Maggie I cross-stitch too and you are right that would be absolutely beautiful and with my family names cross-stitched around it... oooooo!

I checked out the video blog about making offerings everyday. I think I've been doing that but in a different way. I keep an altar of sorts and light a candle on it everyday or light some incense. I change it regularly to reflect what's going on in my spiritual life. I keep in a corner on the cabinets in my kitchen since that is where I tend to spend a lot of time. Making offerings of sweet smelling incense or lighting a candle is very powerful for me.

Moonprysm - its so hard when things like that happen in our lives. Sending you lots of positive and restorative energy. I recently let go of a toxic friend. It's hard...but my soul feels lighter for having done it. From an astological point of view, the sun and moon squared with Uranus with the new moon in Sagittarius. Check out Tracy's article here. It may help give you a different perspective at least.

cachet - I really liked reading your blog. I posted a comment for you with credit for the New Year Questionnaire. How did that go for everyone who did it?

Just before I became LDS eight years ago, I was learning about Wicca. Now I'm back in that place melding the two. I love how compatible they are!

I found these two things that I think might be useful.
http://www.universetoday.com/guide-t...n-phases-2010/
http://www.moonconnection.com/moon-january-2010.phtml

I wish I could find a widget that would work on my Facebook (I have tried several) and/or my desktop that displays the moon phases.
post #111 of 165
I really like the Lunaria Journal I got this year and also the We'Moon calendar is good for keeping up with phases of the moon. Also Tracy's articles are really good for deciphering what all of it means. She posts about the New Moons every month and also the different phases.

I need to read more of Tracy's stuff. I always mean to but it's so overwhelming! I really do need to pick up "Astrology For Dummies" or something like that.

I am eying this. But I also like the idea of the We'Moon one. But does it list the Sabbats and such?
post #113 of 165
Yes, it lists the Sabbats in the front and then lists them in the actual calendar part. It has beautiful art and writing...

Oh yay! I need to find a place to look at it on the inside... I'll try Amazon (man I wish I had a Pagan shop in my area! I guess I should check again as the last time I checked was oh... 7 years ago? )

Have you checked their website?

I didn't think anything of it because it's something I would have done! I think it comes with motherhood...

An Amazon book list for the Christopagan...

OOoh a lot of those are really cheap, used, too!

I managed to find BOTH of our Vertigo decks (DH's brand new one he never opened after I got it for his for Christmas YEARS ago and my used one). So excited! Then I go through and remember that my deck is missing 2 cards, one of them being my favorite. I have this partial memory of using one of them as a bookmark...but I don't remember. *ETA* I found the bookmark one! Still missing my favorite. I don't know if I can keep using it without my favorite card. I DID do a 1-card draw though and got the 4 of swords. Pretty good card based on what I've been through in the last week.

Kinda mad DH hasn't touched his deck but is insisting that it's HIS deck. So I have no choice but to work with my incomplete deck. Positive thoughts for me finding Death would be nice. (DH thinks I used it as a bookmark somewhere else but I don't remember).
