Mostly quilting with a little bit of astrology, vegetarian cooking, small town life and cats thrown in.

There is a New Moon this morning at 13 Capricorn. New Moons are the best time to start a new project - so if you've been holding off or procrastinating on something, now's the time to do it. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and Saturn has a reputation as a taskmaster, so this is especially good if your project involves a lot of detailed work. It will most likely be slow going, but the end result will be satisfying and will be admired by all who see it.
The Moon in this photo of Laurel Burch's Bountiful Blessings collection is, of course, not a New Moon - it's a waxing Crescent Moon, but getting a picture of a New Moon is difficult when there's no light being reflected from it. New Moons happen every month when the Sun cozies up next to it. The effects of this aspect last for about a day and a half. The next New Moon will be Feb. 2 and it will take place at 14 Aquarius.
Poked my head out the door this morning and... it's snowing! We haven't seen snow here since the middle of December. I don't think anyone has missed it. The lack of snow at this time of year is unusual for us, so I had to take a picture of it actually coming down. Judging from the weather forecast, it should be all gone again in a couple of days.
