Senate honored Augustus Caesar, the first Roman emperor, by changing the name of their month “Sextilis” to “Augustus.” Middle English speakers inherited the name of the month of August, but it wasn’t until the mid-1600s that “august” came to be used generically in English, more or less as “augustus” was in Latin, to refer to someone with imperial qualities.

With this alignment we experience an increase in intensity as the energies flooding the planet move to awaken and heal the collective

Daily Good: How to Recapture Your Imagination

High alert is the nature of the moment, and rightly so, but I do not intend to lose the reality that as a culture we are entering deeply mythic ground.

  • Martin Shaw –

How to Recapture Your Imagination

“If you had the spyglass, you could see anything in the world. If you had the spyglass, there was nothing from which you couldn’t glean information. It had mesmeric power over the people. It had been created by a king who gave it to his daughter, to be used for the strangest of courtships. If you wished to marry her, you had to achieve only one thing. You had to disappear. You had to become a magician of the invisible.” In this excerpt from his new book, Martin Shaw, a celebrated storyteller, draws on myth and metaphor to direct our gaze away from the screen and toward the wonder of the world. { read more }

Inner Journey:


“Generosity lies less in giving much than in giving at the right moment.”
— Jean De La Bruyère

While it’s important to give, it’s also essential that we not give more than we can afford. Only you can determine the appropriate amount of time or money you can give away, but it should not cause you hardship. We need to respect our own needs as well as the needs of others.

When do you give more than you can afford?

“Generosity is another quality which, like patience, letting go, non-judging, and trust, provides a solid foundation for mindfulness practice. You might experiment with using the cultivation of generosity as a vehicle for deep self-observation and inquiry as well as an exercise in giving.”
— Jon Kabat Zinn

Daily Wisdom
August 3, 2021

“The greatest of victories is the victory over oneself.”

-The Dhammapada: The Path of Perfection (1st Cent. B.C.)

Sometimes it seems that the mind is in constant turmoil. It’s always racing from project to problem, keeping us busy, making us stressed. To be able to still the mind, to find that calm and quiet place within, is a true victory, one that rewards us with health, happiness, and peace of mind

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Justice

You have great force of will today and it could be easy to push around someone less driven than you. Try to do things right the first time so there’s less “clean-up” tomorrow, when people may be less forgiving or understanding. Do what’s important first, rather than what is easiest or the most fun. You can do that some other time but today it won’t work.
