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.

Spirit Library: Choose to Courageously Step Forward (a message from Kate Spreckley)
Many are struggling with all the changes and the rapid transformations occurring. Yet this is a time where we are urged to claim our energy and our power as it will enable us to boldly step forward despite uncertainty and fear. We are learning to create the life of our soul and as such must discover where we are holding ourselves back and why.

Patheos-Pagan: It’s Not My Job To Educate You (except it kinda is)
I remember the first time I heard someone say “it’s not my job to educate you!” I was filled with disbelief. I mean, if you believe in something and you’re trying to create change, it’s your job to educate the world.

TRYING TOO HARD?
“Thinking about interior peace destroys interior peace. The patient who constantly feels his pulse is not getting any better.”
— Hubert van Zeller
Are you trying too hard to be good, to be perfect, to be spiritual?
‘Trying too hard’ is an expression of fear. If you can replace the fear with faith that everything always serves our highest good, your confidence and peace of mind will serve your aspirations.
“So many people work so hard, to achieve, attain, accumulate and cherish their fortunes. How many of us blissfully fill our days and nights being the Divine expression we are? This is the meaning of life. It is to be. As a result, all of your creations are a natural outflow from the Divine within your being. This is the joy of life.”
— Barbara Rose

“The first step towards victory is to gain courage.”
-Plutarch (C.E. 46? – 119?)
Whenever we embark upon any endeavor, there’s always a first step. To reach a goal we must take action. To take action we must have courage. When we set our minds to it, we can achieve success, we can be victorious!

Daily Tarot: The Emperor
You have extra protection today, but this is not a reason to act rashly or take extra risks. In fact, you may be called upon to protect someone else or to safeguard some progress or advantage that was recently gained. Have self-confidence in all situations but don’t take your safety for granted. Be willing to be responsible for those around you and win a lot of loyalty.
