Spirit Library: Inflow & Outflow (a message from Kate Spreckley)

With the rise of a new reality a very necessary transformation is taking place in our human structure. A new awareness is awakening and will realign all of humanity with the universal principles of balance.

ThoughtCo: How To Hold a Mabon Apple Harvest Rite

Mabon, the Autumn Equinox, is celebrated in many ways around the world. It is a day of balance, with equal amounts of darkness and light, but soon, winter will arrive. In some Wiccan traditions, it marks the time when the Sun King descends into the underworld, from which he will be reborn at Yule.

MBG: Why There’s No Such Thing As Zodiac Cusps, According To Astrologers

If you’ve ever met someone whose birthday fell near the meeting point of two zodiac signs—i.e., Gemini and Cancer—they may have insisted they’re a Gemini-Cancer cusp. Maybe you’ve even referred to yourself as a “cusp” before, with regards to your own sign. But we consulted mbg’s resident astrologists, the AstroTwins, on the question of cusps, and according to them, they might just be another astrology myth.

EarthSky News: Moon and star Antares on August 25

As darkness falls on August 25, 2020, the moon will be at or near its half-illuminated first quarter phase, and close to the star Antares on the sky’s dome. Of course, the moon and Antares are not truly close together in space. The moon, our closest celestial neighbor, resides at a average distance of 238,885 miles or 384,400 km; yet the sun, our nearest star, lodges almost 400 times farther distant from Earth than our moon.

Inner Journey: ON FREEDOM

“Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.”
— Stephen Covey

A Greek myth can help us understand the freedom that comes with power of choice.

In the Underworld, Sisyphus was condemned to roll a large stone up a hill from which it always rolled down again. Realistically, he was trapped in an endless cycle of rolling the stone. When he perceived himself to be imprisoned by the curse, he was a victim.

At one point, however, he turned the tables — he changed his mind and decided to CHOOSE to roll the stone up the hill. In doing so, he empowered himself and defused the curse.

“Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.”
— Jean-Paul Sartre

“One cannot make a slave of a free person, for a free person is free even in a prison.”
— Plato


A Note from the Universe

Now! Go!

Stake your claim! Hold out your hands. Move, get ready, give thanks. Imagine, and let go.

Act, and have faith. Persist. Do what you can, when you can, all you can.

Because never again, not in a million years, not over ten thousand lifetimes, will you ever again be as close as you are today.

Daily Tarot: The Empress

Clear up a misunderstanding and free up some time and space to begin something you’ve been wanting to do but felt beyond your means. You might also come to an understanding with someone who has been an obstacle for you, whether because of pride, some power struggle, or other kind of competition or misconstrued sense of prestige or self-importance. Today, you are the equal of anyone. Be gracious.
