The 25 day Advent Calendar is used to pass the time until some people's favorite day - Christmas! However, there are so many cultures and religions and celebrations, we must re-brand the Holiday season as something more universal. And what's more universal than spreading good cheer by doing some good for the people and community around us?
A Black Moon occurs when there are two New Moons in one month. This first new moon is in Libra, the sign of two scales symbolizing balance, and, to me - Physics. The traditional image of a woman holding scales shows two components: factors within her own control (firm grip, good posture?) and also environmental ones, as well. Being an air sign, some of what keeps the Libra scales in balance, in her grasp, and holding its contents is the calm, evenly flowing air around her. Natural conditions supporting this goddesses hard work.
The first new moon in Fall is here for the harvest and encourages the concept of abundance.

PEOPLE ARE VERY BOLD AND DECLARATIVE AROUND THIS TIME OF YEAR. DOES IT WORK? IS THAT PART OF THE RESOLUTION?
There are a lot of voices debating ‘new year, new you’ and whether or not you should be aggressively Type A or defiantly self-protective simply because the calendar is revolving. Doesn't matter if it's positive or negative it's all aggro.
PERSONAL FREEDOM ALLOWS YOU TO BE/ DO/ SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT, WITHOUT PROCLAMATIONS OR DEFENSE. LOUD AND PROUD DOESN'T REALLY MEAN ANYTHING WHEN FACEBOOK IS CURATED, ALTERED, AND FILTERED BEST-SELF BS ANYWAY.
Hurricane Sandy happened 3 years ago today. My parents were displaced from our home for at least half of that. They didn't want to leave as the first evacuation alerts went out and by June of this year we didn't know when or if they'd return. The first year was spent gutting the water-damaged first floor, disposing of many family belongings, and rebuilding. My parents were strong and while living out of a hotel spent much of their time caring for their pets and going to the church to have and help with meals.
Over the last year they were displaced again ...
