The cricket’s soft refrain
With mellow accent tells the tale
That August’s here again.

Treehugger: Why Does the Sky Sometimes Turn Purple?

A blue sky is a good sky. It’s a reassuring sight that promises clear weather and bright days.
But what in the world does a purple sky mean? It’s not uncommon to spot purple skies during sunsets or sunrises. Sometimes they even appear after hurricanes, as they did in Florida following Hurricane Michael.

EarthSky News: Summer Triangle on August evenings

We’ve recently seen Orion’s return to the east before dawn, which means our northern summer is beginning to draw to a close. But the Summer Triangle asterism still rules the skies. It pops out first thing at nightfall and climbs highest up for the night at late evening. From mid-northern latitudes, Vega – the Summer Triangle’s brightest star – shines high overhead around 10 p.m. local daylight saving time (9 p.m. local standard time). Altair resides to the southeast (lower left) of Vega, and Deneb lies to Vega’s east (left).

Pagan Playlist: Karliene – I’ll Fly For You


Inner Journey:


“Life is the coexistence of all opposite values. Joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain, up and down, hot and cold, here and there, light and darkness, birth and death. All experience is by contrast, and one would be meaningless without the other.”
— Deepak Chopra

Life is full of dualities, opposites. Despite their apparent opposition, each extreme in a duality is necessary to fully actualize the other. Each depends on the existence of the other. For example, we cannot know honesty if we don’t know deception.

The key is to not resist or suppress the negative. We need to acknowledge its existence, though we may choose not to express it. When we embrace wholeness, we move to a higher perspective.

“The light which man has discovered within himself makes him more aware of the dark; through the good which attracts him, he sees the evil which is the line of least resistance; the activity leading to pain simultaneously permits him to visualize the contrasting pleasure, and thus he experiences something of both hell and heaven.”
— Aart Jurriaanse

A Note from the Universe 
Here’s some advice for those who come to you with long faces.

“If you’ve finally decided, once and for all, to be happy, yet you aren’t… then you haven’t yet decided to be happy, once and for all.”

Same goes for all the other stuff they’ve decided.

They’re that powerful.

Daily Wisdom
August 13, 2020

“The things that are unseen are eternal.”

-Paul (A.D. 1st cent.)

What is unseen? Some of the things that are unseen are felt, and that’s how we understand their presence. Love, joy, truth, wisdom. These things are precious, and timeless. What Paul said back in the first century is as wise and true then as it is now, and as it will be centuries from now. The love that we feel, and express, will live on always. Love never dies, love is eternal.


-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Pope

It’s important to stick with the plan already in place and be loyal to those who are already committed to you. You’re not so much part of a team as you are the leader of a group of people who will do what you ask of them if you only treat them properly and look after their needs, especially the tiny personal ones.
