O Earth, that hast no voice, confide to me a voice!
O harvest of my lands! O boundless summer growths!
O lavish, brown, parturient earth! O infinite, teeming womb!
A verse to seek, to see, to narrate thee.
-Walt Whitman (1819-92)

ThoughtCo: What is a Wicker Man?

The Wicker Man is a giant effigy allegedly used by the Druids to perform human sacrifice, according to the writings of Julius Caesar. He mentions it as one method in which the Celts performed rituals, but other than Caesar’s observations there is little scholarly corroboration. In recent years, some of Caesar’s accounts have been disputed by modern academics.


MBG: This August Could Be A Break From Intensity, According To Astrology

Uncertainty is in the air as the last full month of summer arrives. Will we or won’t we…go back to work, send kids to school, keep the business open, spend holidays with the family? Our ability to plan, which is crucial to success in modern life, has been seriously hindered.

Elephant Journal: 3 Things our Rising Signs reveal about our Souls.

What the heck is my rising sign?
A lot of people newer to astrology are not completely familiar with a rising sign and even some of the more “well-seasoned” astrology nerds (yes, I am an astrology nerd) are still not entirely aware of just how much our rising sign can affect the whole of our natal charts (or “life map” as I like to refer to it).

Treehugger: 12 Incredible Facts About Lemurs

Lemurs are easy to love. They’re cute, charismatic, and oddly humanlike, which isn’t just a coincidence. Lemurs are primates like us, and while they’re not as closely related to people as chimpanzees and other apes are, they’re still family.

Patheos-Pagan: The Darkness is Returning – And That’s a Good Thing

It’s August already, in this year like no other.

January and February were mostly normal, to the extent that anything resembles “normal” in Tower Time.

Then Covid-19 hit. March felt like it lasted about eight weeks. April? April lasted six months.

Inner Journey: 


“The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
— William Faulkner

Longing for a miracle that will transform your life? Miracles happen, and if we don’t want that magic to disappear on us, we need to learn from each epiphany — to integrate it, apply it, and build on it so we can permanently shift to a new level of being.

The real key to fulfillment lies in ONGOING transformation: building our awareness of daily opportunities to change our perceptions and raise our consciousness. Life is about dissolving the old and creating anew. The more we open to accepting and learning from every life experience, the more our lives transform.

“Enlightenment must come little by little — otherwise it would overwhelm.”
— Idries Shah

Daily Wisdom
August 3, 2020

“One life stamps and influences another, which in turn stamps and influences another, on and on, until the soul of human experience breathes on in generations we’ll never even meet.”

-Mary Kay Blakely, 1989

Yes, we are independent, as people and as a nation, and at the same time we are interdependent. We rely on each other. We support and sustain one another. Each person, independently, makes contributions that have far-reaching effects. It’s the pebble in the pond example, where the ripples are felt for a long time after the stone has landed

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot:  The Hanged Man

Possibly a romantically disquieting day, you may begin to suspect that your love is not being returned, at least not in kind. Or perhaps you can’t bring yourself to return the affections of an ardent admirer. This might feel even worse. The head and heart don’t always speak the same language or have the same opinions. Be strong and as kind as you can.
