ThoughtCo: Holding a Pagan Blessing Ritual for New Babies
In a powerful scene in the landmark miniseries “Roots”, his jubilant father holds the infant Kunta Kinte up to the sky, and says, “Behold, the only thing greater than yourself.” In the same miniseries, many years later, the adult Kunta Kinte does the same thing with his own child, despite the fact that they are thousands of miles from his homeland.

Treehugger: 11 Dazzling Types of Parrots
More than 350 species of birds fall within the order Psittaciformes, including macaws, lorikeets, cockatoos, and many other types of parrots — each with its own unique qualities. Parrots vary greatly in height and size, and, like people, they are omnivores, living on both meat and plants. In the wild, some parrots can live up to 80 years.
EarthSky News: See the zodiacal light
The moonless evenings around the spring equinox are best for viewing the zodiacal light after sunset. Now that the moon has left the early evening sky, the next several weeks present an excellent time for those in the Northern Hemisphere to view this mysterious light, which looks like a hazy pyramid extending up from the western horizon, when all traces of twilight have let the evening sky. You’ll want a rural location, as full darkness falls. About 80 to 120 minutes after sunset should be about right.

Inner Journey: USE YOUR BREATH TO RELAX YOUR BODY
“Breath is the link between the inner and outer worlds.”
— Alice Christensen
We live in very demanding times, and our health depends on our being able to relieve our bodies and minds from constant stress. Breathing with awareness can focus and concentrate our attention inside. This slows down our pace and eases the pressure, anxiety, anticipation and excitement that are common stress reactions.
At any time, you can consciously experience your breathing to help you concentrate your mind and relax your body. Compare how you feel after your session with how you felt before. Write about your experience in your journal.
“Controlled deep breathing helps the body to transform the air we breathe into energy. The stream of energized air produced by properly executed and controlled deep breathing produces a current of inner energy which radiates throughout the entire body and can be channeled to the body areas that need it the most, on demand.”
— Nancy Zi
A Note from the Universe
If you had chosen an easier path and been born knowing how beautiful, deserving, and important you truly are, by this time you’d probably be worth billions of dollars, have millions of followers, and own businesses around the world. But then… you wouldn’t be so wise, nor as good at cheering yourself up.
All in favor of keeping the Cat we know and love?

“The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.”
-Christopher Crowfield, Little Foxes, 1865
Sometimes the biggest regrets are for things we didn’t do, rather than for things we did do. It’s important for us to act on our instincts, to pursue our dreams, to say what we feel the need to say. When we live life to its fullest, and not hold anything back, we give ourselves more opportunities to learn and grow

Daily Tarot: The Moon
Things may be going fine but you’ll still be able to find something to be disappointed about. Rather than looking on the glum side of things, take a walk in the sunshine or at least get some fresh air and make an effort to be more objective. Full-blown optimism may be beyond you today, but you can balance your mood by noticing and maybe making a list of all those things that are going right.
