** Mercury Retrograde from June 18- July 12

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82)

MBG: How To Give Yourself An Abhyanga Ayurvedic Massage From Home
When’s the last time you had a massage? For most of us, it was a while ago—a splurge on a vacation or birthday treat. But ask an ayurveda practitioner the same question, and they’ll probably answer “this morning.”
Daily Dream Meaning: Accident
A warning – the details of which depend on other symbols in the dream.
1. If you dream of an accident while traveling by car, this could be a hint that you should either avoid travel at this time, or, if you can’t avoid it, make sure that your car is in the best possible condition before you leave.
2. Stay away from planes, trains, buses, boats, or dangerous walking, such as hiking in the mountains, for at least a day after you have the dream, and preferably for a week. If you must go, take a cell phone with you (in case you must call for help), as well as first aid supplies.

Elephant Journal: A Tender way to Cultivate Self-Love & Self-Compassion.
There’s a photo of me sitting on the top of my bookshelf in my room.
It’s a 5th grade school photo, I think. I’m wearing a black shirt and glasses. I have a little barrette pinned to the top right side of my hair.
Treehugger: How to Identify Different Types of Bees
When was the last time you were in your garden, saw a bee, grabbed it and squeezed it? Probably never, right?
Unless you’ve done that, there’s a good chance that if you’ve ever been stung it wasn’t by a bee, said Becky Griffin. And she would know.
EarthSky News: Two lunar perigees in June 2020
The moon in its orbit swings closest to Earth at perigee, and farthest away from Earth at apogee. There are a total of 13 lunar perigees in 2020, so it’s inevitable that one calendar month this year has to harbor two lunar perigees. That double feature happens in June 2020.
Patheos-Pagan: Dance of the Maenad: Magic 001
I’ve been a pagan for most of my life. Like a lot of people, my first introduction was the kind of watered-down Wicca a lot of people consider to be a common basis of paganism – honoring the (Celtic) Wheel of the Year, calling the quarters, chants ending in “so mote it be”, and, yes, Silver Ravenwolf.

YOU ARE WORTHY!
“A person’s worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has. The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having.”
— Alice Mary Hilton
As a human being, as spirit manifested in form, you are innately worthy. Your worthiness does not have to be strengthened or improved. However, you may not PERCEIVE yourself to be worthy.
If you doubt your self-worth, consciously or unconsciously, you will limit the good things you will allow into your life.
Do you consider yourself worthy? It may help to answer these questions:
• Do you find it easier to give than to receive?
• Do you have as much money as you would like?
• Do you feel driven to improve yourself?
• Do you value other people’s time more highly than your own?
• How would you feel if someone offered to pay you a salary of $1 million/year?
If you find you lack self-worth, don’t despair. Just being aware of your self-worth issues will help you let them go.
“Every achiever that I have ever met says, ‘My life turned around when I began to believe in me.'”
— Dr. Robert H. Schuller
“We cannot achieve more in life than what we believe in our heart of hearts we deserve to have.”
— James R. Ball

“Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. Be one.”
-Marcus Aurelius (A.D. 121-180)
There are so many debates about what “good” is, and man’s nature, whether we are “wired” for good or selfish motives. But does it matter? We all have our own definitions of what good is. If we’d just live up to that, this world would be a better place. Do good, be good – whatever that means to you!
Daily Tarot: Death
There’s a sense of security in what is old, and with something new coming into your life it’s natural to be a bit afraid. Give this new situation a chance and give yourself time to get comfortable with the new conditions. It could be as simple as getting your hair cut or changing your glasses frames, but it could be much bigger than that.
