“What wondrous life is this I lead!
Ripe apples drop about my head;
The luscious clusters of the vine
Upon my mouth do crush their wine;
The nectarine and curious peach
Into my hands themselves do reach;
Stumbling on melons, as I pass,
Ensnared with flowers, I fall on grass.”
- Andrew Marvell, Thoughts in a Garden
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: Be Willing to Sit with Truth (a message from Kate Spreckley)
This is an incredible time of healing and inner work as we move towards accepting change, releasing the old and embracing where we are now. While our consciousness continues to awaken and expand old beliefs, structures and patterns are dissolving to reveal the natural flow of creation. As a result, it is becoming more and more difficult to exist within old realities.

Inner Journey: WISDOM
“…we need to abandon the idea that wisdom is knowing everything-the whys, the wherefores, the how-tos. Wisdom is often more subtle, both far simpler and exceedingly more complex. For wisdom requires the discerning, the listening to, the acknowledgement of nudges and notions, of senses and sensations, of the minute and what we often mistakenly assume is the mundane. Wisdom means listening to the still, small voice, the whisper that can be easily lost in the whirlwind of busyness, expectations, and conventions of the world….”
— Jean M. Blomquist
“Nine-tenths of wisdom is appreciation. Go find somebody’s hand and squeeze it, while there’s time.”
— Dale Dauten
“To finish the moment, to find the journey’s end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have patience with everyone,

“The whole art of life is knowing the right time to say things.”
Communication is a term that is used to express the dialogue and understanding between people. There is definitely an art to this. It’s not just what we say but how, and when, we say it. We need to be sensitive as to how our words are being interpreted. And communication is reciprocal, it is both giving and receiving. When we speak we are giving information, and receiving someone’s attention. When we listen we are receiving information and giving our attention.

Daily Tarot: The Empress
Clear up a misunderstanding and free up some time and space to begin something you’ve been wanting to do but felt beyond your means. You might also come to an understanding with someone who has been an obstacle for you, whether because of pride, some power struggle, or other kind of competition or misconstrued sense of prestige or self-importance. Today, you are the equal of anyone. Be gracious.
