Another old blog entry I am reposting here… 

An excerpt from Mark Morford too cool not to share…

It would appear there are far more stars in the sky than once believed. In fact, the raw number of stars we once thought existed in space-time might just actually triple, thanks to new findings by scientists with very large brains. The number of stars, they say, might now be somewhere around 300 sextillion.

Tasty word, sextillion. And 300 of it is a 3 plus 23 zeroes, or three trillion times 100 billion, or a number so mind-scramblingly large that to imagine it crosses some internal threshold of basic understanding, hurling us headlong into realms of magic and surreality that makes the world turn tiny and translucent.

Oh and BTW? 300 sextillion, says our sly scientist, also happens to be the rough sum total of all cells inhabiting all human bodies on planet earth at this particular moment. 300 sextillion stars, 300 sextillion cells. Isn’t that fascinating? Isn’t that an odd coincidence?

Well, no, say the wise ones. Not really. Now pipe down and get yourself awed.


This is totally cool and us magical types call this synchronicity…  LOL

Speaking of Stars, there is also the knowledge that we are made of star-stuff.  A star had to live and die (explode) into the Universe for each of us to have the elements necessary for life.

The statement that we are all “star stuff,” coined by the late astronomer Carl Sagan (not sure if this was before or after Joni Mitchell sang “we are stardust; we are golden. we are billion year old carbon”), is meant to imply more than that we are made of the same elements that stars are made of. Beyond that, the elements themselves (carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, etc.) were synthesized, cooked up as it were, in the nuclear furnaces that are the deep interior of stars. These elements are then released at the end of a star’s lifetime when it explodes, and subsequently incorporated into a new generation of stars — and into the planets that form around the stars, and the lifeforms that originate on the planets.

For every single atom of carbon within us, a star had to die.  Carbon is only created when a star explodes!


A wonderful video to watch from Brian Swimme on how our earth (and us) was birthed (there are seven, watch them all!):

The words, “As Above, So Below; As Within, So Without” isn’t just for witches but is the stuff of life as we know it.

For the second month in a row, I have been exceedingly fortunate to be looking at just the right place in the sky at just the right time in the evening to behold the beautiful Horns of Isis.

In January it was uncharacteristically cold for my part of the country.  The sky was very dark and the stars I could see in my heavily populated city were sparkling more than usual.  The shining sliver of the new moon chalice hung on the bottom of the orb so brightly the outline of the entire moon could be seen.

That I should be out on such an evening, and should be looking at that point in the night sky, at just that perfect time of night was luck itself.  The Horns of Isis New Moons are my bell-weather for new beginnings.  I’ve only just realized what a familiar friend she is and when I happen to notice her gaze on me, I remember the cycles that are so easily forgotten with the busy-work of living life each day.

So imagine my wonderful surprise to again catch her eye this New Moon on the Chinese New Year in a misty cold sky.  That she was glowing through the soft clouds at just the right time of evening at just the right place in the sky for my wondering gaze for the second month in a row is nearly a miracle.  The open cup of the smallest sliver of new moon again highlighted the outline of the entire moon through the growing mist.

It made me smile with happiness to be gifted with such a beautiful sight for the second month in a row.  I will look to Mother Isis to see what message she has for me.  She is calling.

At The Tree Of Knowledge


The fruit of the tree of knowledge is a delectably beautiful thing

Wrapped within each divine fruit dwells a diffusion of truth

Our being, which is wholly connected to the energy that makes us, 

desires and burns for this truth.


Once this truth is taken within us we know

and are born again into a state of separateness.

Thus, we continue to seek and desire divine truths

until once again we are reborn combining the completeness 

of divine energy and the knowledge of truth we have tapped into.


We, each of us, wisely chose to eat of this fruit time and time again.

We chose our paths.



our path.

Somewhere we sit already complete in divine energy and truth.


But here, on Momma Gaia, the path that 

I have chosen becomes manifest as does the truth I seek.

And wild in the woods of this plane of existence, I continue to seek with my 

kin, truth and wholeness. 

Truth and wholeness, that begins at the Tree of Knowledge.
