PaganNewsBeagle Airy Monday Nov 24

Today's Airy Monday (posted in advance on Sunday since the Beagle will be out of town Monday morning) focuses on something different: Sagittarius. (The Pagan News Beagle confesses that his writer has Sag rising, so he's got a particular liking for this sign.) And as we just entered this sign on Nov 22, let's celebrate our movement into the Sagittarius season! "Interstellar" Sag energy; E.T. the Sagittarian?; nebulas in Sagittarius; new chemicals in the deep space of Sagittarius; who is Chiron, the patron of Sagittarius?

At her "Gateway Goddess" blog, Cathy Nance opines that Christopher Nolan's new film "Interstellar" perfectly embodies the energy of Sagittarius.

PaganNewsBeagle Earthy Thursday Nov 20

Today's Earthy Thursday posts concentrate on the gifts of lovely planet, even when it's (brrrrr!) cold outside. A strolling platypus; spectacular natural arches; an emerging urban food economy; feral farms reclaiming discarded land; winter gardening tips.

We were charmed by this footage of a platypus out for a stroll (it took the filmmaker years to get the shot!)

PaganNewsBeagle Earthy Thursday Nov 13

In today's Earthy Thursday post, we've got stories about our one-and-only biosphere: opening North Carolina forests to logging?; thirsty forests in California; crowd-funding dark snow res in Greenland;an emerging food economy; pickling for fun and sustainability;  wonderful slot canyons.

In a move that has southern environmentalists up in arms, the US Forest service has proposed opening 70% of the massive Pisgah-Nantahala National Forest in North Carolina to industrial logging.

An unexpected side effect of climate change is fast-growing conifer forests in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. Good news? Not if you are a human (farmer or city dweller) competing for water with the increasingly thirsty trees.
