We welcome in the Year of the Fire Monkey with some discussion and some divination with a deck of cards sporting a very relevant name.
The days will start getting longer at Yule/Winter Solstice, but some of us won’t really perceive the growing light until around Imbolc. We talk about how we experience these short days and dark nights between Halloween and Groundhog Day – a time for winter projects, spiritual work, personal introspection, and Christmas holiday celebrations morphed for nearly every tradition. And while people concern themselves with time according to the clock, alas, cats do not.
And just because… Cat Alarm Clocks are the Best Alarm Clocks
Hey, we learned something today! We start by talking about the thought-provoking topic of Polytheism. What is Polytheism? How does it work for everybody? What is Henotheism? How does that work? Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Too many questions for one podcast!
(Watch out for Henotheists who worship Loki – could be tricky!)
We do veer off topic onto a sci-fi reading list at one point, which is interesting too. (So long as you don’t get turned into a Coke machine!) Here are notes on that:
Here’s an interesting book Wendy recommends, which has the Viking gods coming to America, “American Gods” by Neil Gaiman
And here are some sources for “The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul” by Douglas Adams.
Breakthrough moments allow us to see things differently. They open our minds and can propel us forward. They seem to happen spontaneously, from out of the blue. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could predict when a eureka moment will happen? Or even bring one on at will? Join the conversation as we discuss our experiences of this amazing phenomenon!
