ThoughtCo: Hold an Ostara Ritual for Solitaries
Ostara is a time of balance. It is a time of equal parts light and dark. At Mabon, we have this same balance, but the light is leaving us.
Patheos / New Visions: The Blessing of the Ordinary
In a moment of exhaustion, my mind was too tired to keep weaving its web and my heart was too tired to keep the world at bay. In that sudden stillness, I realized that, as a patch of water when still will reveal the bottom of a lake

Treehugger: 14 Photos That Show the Wonderful Diversity of Wading Birds
The charisma of wading birds is often overlooked or underestimated when it comes to the wide swath of singing birds, raptors and other engaging species. But those long-legged birds that mill about in marshes, mudflats and mangroves have so much to offer in diversity and sheer beauty.
EarthSky News: Young moon after sunset March 14-16, 2021
These next several days – March 14, 15 and 16, 2021 – look westward after sunset to glimpse the young and slender moon adorning the evening twilight. You could possibly miss the moon at dusk March 14, because the pale whisker-thin crescent may not be bright enough to overcome the glow of evening twilight.
Patheos-Pagan: Discordian Jubilees: Dr. Van Van Mojo and the Season of Discord
In keeping with the Law of Fives, and just to make life a little more difficult, the Discordian calendar is comprised of five seasons of 73 days each (7+3=10; 10/2=5; Hail Eris!), with a Holyday [sic] on every 5th and 50th day. March 19 marks the fifth day of the Season of Discord, which means it’s Mojoday, the feast of the Apostle Doctor Van Van Mojo.

Inner Journey: THE FACE IN THE MIRROR
“Our inability to see beauty doesn’t suggest in the slightest that beauty is not there. Rather, it suggests that we are not looking carefully enough or with broad enough perspective to see the beauty.”
— Rabbi Harold Kushner
Who are you? You can gaze at your reflection in a mirror but you’re not likely to see your true likeness. You are beautiful, unique, perfect. Do you see that?
The world needs you to see how whole and complete you are — now. Can you begin to own your divinity? The world needs you to know who you really are so you can be the mirror for others.
“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.”
— John Muir

“She had so deep a kinship with the trees, so intuitive a sympathy with leaf and flower, that it seemed as if the blood in her veins was not slow-moving human blood, but volatile sap.”
-Mary Webb, Gone to Earth (1917)
Some people have this innate connection with the plant world. I guess those would be the same people who have “green thumbs.” There is a definite communication that goes on between plants and animals, whether we are aware of it or not. We can find peace in nature. We can find ourselves in that peace

Daily Tarot: Justice
You may be dealing with people who feel inferior or weaker than you, so take care to not run over anyone. Equally, they do not have to serve as an excuse for you to go slower or do less than you know is necessary. Be firm but not too firm, determined but not too determined. Get a lot of good work done
