ThoughtCo: The Magical Moon Garden
Many Pagans love to garden, but a lot of people don’t realize you can grow plants and flowers that bloom at night. Cultivating a moon garden is a great way to get in touch with nature, and it provides a beautiful and fragrant backdrop for your moonlight rituals in the summer.
Beliefnet: Chakra Clearing to Connect With the Angels
If you are serious about connecting with the angels, then it’s important for you to learn how to clear your chakras. When these psychic energy centers are dirty and aren’t functioning correctly, your ability to receive messages from the angels is diminished.
Spirit Library: With Your LightBody, You have to Choose where to “put” Your Energy…
It’s nothing like “before”….
You all know me, I change words to a multi-dimensional (vibrational) understanding, instead of a linear one. This article I break down a bit more of “how” your LightBody (SoulBody/Photonic Light integrated into your form) works….. There’s so many “pieces and parts”… and every “piece” is a bit different based upon the current vibration/energy and circumstances…. which changes in every nano-second too.
Daily Tarot: Temperance
Pace yourself today and get more done than you might imagine as the day begins. It’s all right to be tired from time to time. It doesn’t have to cripple all your plans for the day. Maintain a sensible balance, remember to eat healthy, take a short break once and a while, and don’t aim too high. There’s plenty of work to be done that you can handle with ease.
Elephant Journal: 3 Quick Meditations for Quieting our Mental Pests.
I had some work to do.
As a young divorcee, I wanted to rediscover my own strength and build a foundation before I partnered up with someone new.
I needed to calm down the hyperactive hamsters running around in my brain so that I could hear the quiet voice in my heart that held the answers that I needed to rediscover myself
MNN: The earliest sunrise of the year isn’t on the summer solstice
The summer solstice, which falls on June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere, offers more total sunlight than any other day of the year. It would seem to make sense, then, for the summer solstice to also feature the year’s earliest sunrise and latest sunset.
EarthSky News: Moon and Spica on June 11 and 12
On June 11 and 12, 2019, use the waxing gibbous moon to find Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the Maiden. In fact, Spica is Virgo’s one and only 1st-magnitude star. Although the bright moon will wipe out a number of fainter stars from the canopy of night tonight, bright Spica should withstand the moonlit glare. If you have trouble seeing Spica, place your finger over the moon and look for a bright star near
Today’s Deity: Mawu
Mawu (alternately: Mahu) is a creator goddess, associated with the sun and moon in Dahomey mythology. In some myths, she is the wife of the male god Lisa. Mahu and Lisa are the children of Nana Buluku, and are the parents of Xevioso.
After creating the earth and all life and everything else on it, she became concerned that it might be too heavy, so she asked the primeval serpent, Aido Hwedo, to curl up beneath the earth and thrust it up in the sky
Patheos-Pagan: Connecting with the Faeries
Warmer weather returns and surely you are starting to see some suspect ‘fairy’ activity going on. You may start to notice things missing. Only to find them in a place that you swear you have looked a thousand times before. If they are happy, your garden will flourish.
MY WILL OR DIVINE WILL?
“It is important not to ‘need’ what you are calling to you but rather to have a certain detachment about it. Let it be all right if it doesn’t come, or if it comes in a different form than what you expect. After you have asked for something, surrender to whatever comes as being appropriate.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer
“Acceptance says, True, this is my situation at the moment. I’ll look unblinkingly at the reality of it. But I’ll also open my hands to accept willingly whatever a loving Father sends me.”
— Catherine Marshall
“This business of hozho. The way I understand it … I’ll use an example. Terrible drought, crops dead, sheep dying. Spring dried out. No water. The Hopi, or the Christian, maybe the Moslem, they pray for rain. The Navajo has the proper ceremony done to restore himself to harmony with the drought. You see what I mean. The system is designed to recognize what’s beyond human power to change, and then to change the human’s attitude to be content with the inevitable.”
— in ‘Sacred Clowns’ by Tony Hillerman
A Note from the Universe
What if you’re actually an ancient gladiator of love and joy, who agreed to visit Earth during these primitive years to spark some new thinking, share a few smiles, and help others live deliberately as they discover they too are as awesome as you?

“You can stroke people with words.”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940)
What would we do without language? This is how we communicate. Words by themselves are so innocuous, but when we put them together, combine them together in such a way, they can be bitterly poisonous, or powerfully healing. Words can carry with them so much meaning. Through words we can express tenderness, and compassion.
