O golden month! How high thy gold is heaped!
The yellow birch-leaves shine like bright coins strung
On wands, the chestnut’s yellow pennons tongue
To eery wind its harvest challenge. Steeped
In yellow, still lie fields where wheat was reaped.
-Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-85)

Daily Good: How to Be at Home

Don’t surrender your loneliness so quickly. Let it cut you more deep. Let it ferment and season you as few humans and even divine ingredients can.~ Hafiz –

How to Be at Home

This tender animation on the theme of isolation reunites filmmaker Andrea Dorfman with poet Tanya Davis ten years after their first collaboration on the viral film “How To Be Alone.” “How To Be At Home” speaks to what so many of us are going through these days with quarantines, lock-downs and stay-at-home orders. “Lean into loneliness and know youre not alone in it.” And remember: we are connected. { read more }

EarthSky News: Moon, Fomalhaut in late September

These next several nights – September 28, 29 and 30 – 2020, use the bright waxing gibbous moon to find the star Fomalhaut. This 1st-magnitude star appears in a part of the sky that’s largely empty of bright stars. For this reason, Fomalhaut is often called the Lonely One or Solitary One. It should be bright enough to withstand the lunar glare in late September.

Patheos-Pagan: Pumpkin Spice Latte Spellwork For Caffeinated Witchcraft

A pumpkin spice latte a day keeps our sanity at bay.

I know that much of my blogging on here as of late has been steeped heavily in warnings and criticisms of our witch and pagan communities. This is obviously because the world we are living in right now is on fire. I also know that this is preventing us from appreciating the little things, such as a nice cup of pumpkin spice latte.

A Note from the Universe

Time and space,what a hoot. Look to them for answers, direction, and meaning, and they’ll rock your world in every which way.

Yet discover that they look to you for answers, direction, and meaning, and you will rock the world.

Take my word for it, the latter is your “ticket.”

Self-Awareness
“Best to be yourself, imperial, plain, and true!”

-Elizabeth Barrett Browning


How many times have we heard someone give us encouragement by saying: “Just be yourself”? When we were young and needed to make a speech in class, or we were a little too shy to approach our secret crush for a date, a friend or parent would remind us that we had what it takes, that there was no need to be afraid. And, still, today, we need to be reminded. We get nervous, feel that we’re not “as good as” someone else, or that some silly mistake was made and we weren’t supposed to be chosen to give a speech. Self-awareness is knowing who we are, and knowing that we are not only “as good as” or “good enough” but that we are whole and complete, that there is a light within us that shines

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Justice

Take everything and everyone a little bit more seriously today, without getting grim about it. People may bring you requests or problems that they think are shaking up their world, and you should offer at least a token respect for their worries and needs. None of this puts any pressure on you, unless you get emotionally involved. Remember, you have neither the power nor responsibility to fix it all.
