THE MOON TURNS RED
AND WINTER BEGINS

Late last night, a remarkable coincidence occurred:
for the first time in 372 years,
there was a rare total lunar eclipse
at the exact moment of the winter solstice,
which marked the beginning of winter!

If you were in North or Central America,
you were able to watch the earth
pass directly between the sun and the moon.
The total eclipse lasted one hour,
which gave the moon a deep red glow.

Astrologists worldwide agree such eclipses
are intensified predictors of "major turning points"
for the world at large.

Let's pray it signifies a "turn for the better."
Amen.
