Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.”
- Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Sensitive Plant

Spirituality & Health: 4 Mindful Lessons From Hummingbirds
BY SARAH BOWEN
For one, it’s possible to be slow and fast at the same time.
For one, it’s possible to be slow and fast at the same time.
“How does she do that?” I exclaimed, peering out the window at the stationary-yet-buzzing ruby-throated hummingbird outside my window. Considering myself a quite different animal, I realized maybe that’s not so, as I stood motionless with a million questions flying through my head.
Learn Religions: Magical Metals
Study Paganism and magical practice for any length of time, and at some point, you’re going to hear about correspondences. Often we discuss correspondences, which are tangible things associated with non-tangible aspects, in terms of herbs, crystals, even planets. Oddly, there’s occasionally a tendency to overlook one of the most useful sets of magical correspondences: metals.
MBG: Weekly Energy Reading: A Wave Of Awakening Is Here — But Not Without Some Challenges
Each week, join author and energy healer Natasha Levinger as she reads the communal energy to predict what’s in store for us in the days ahead.
The energy at the start of this week feels like the surge of awakening we get from jumping into the cold ocean and getting hit in the face by a wave. But wait! It’s not bad. Maybe a little harsher than we would have asked for—but once we adjust to the water, it feels great

EarthSky News: Mars and Saturn conjunction, April 4 and 5 mornings
Mars and Saturn conjunction
Mars and Saturn have a beautiful conjunction on the mornings of April 4 and 5, 2022. Their actual conjunction – when the two objects have the same right ascension on the sky’s dome – happens at 22 UTC on April 4. That’s when Mars will swing 0.3 degrees south of Saturn. But that time is less important than the time you’ll see the pair. You’ll see them in the sunrise direction, shortly before the sun comes up. They’ll be near another much-more-dazzling planet, Venus.
Patheos-Pagan: Receiving a Divination Gift
APRIL 3, 2022 BY BADER SAAB
It hasn’t been so long since I experienced Al-‘Uzza healing love, something I keep thinking about now and then, maybe not consciously, but always keep in my mind. Recently, I experienced something for the first time in life: all of a sudden,
Pagan Playlist: songs to channel your inner siren 🌊【deep sea playlist】
“Work should be in order to live. We don’t live in order to work. That shift in awareness is necessary.”
— Matthew Fox
What are your beliefs around work? Do you believe it’s necessary to work hard to earn a living? No pain, no gain? Do you believe women’s work is never done? That play is a waste of time?
While there are merits to the work ethic, over-work takes a serious toll on the quality of our lives. Our ability to contribute to life requires us to have a sense of balance, joy, playfulness, time to stop and smell the flowers.
“Learning to let go of the ways we inadvertently and unconsciously contribute to our own pain is the key to finding radiant physical and emotional health.”
— Ingrid Bacci
“To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.”
— Samuel Butler
“The true object of all human life is play.”
— G.K. Chesterton
A Note from the Universe
Wait a minute.
You’re already smarter, kinder, more honest, insightful, and ambitious, even better looking, than 99.99 percent of the people who now have what you dream of having and who now do what you dream of doing.
Getting there is not about being better, more deserving, or smarter, Cat, it’s about realizing you already are, and acting like it.
As you were,

“You could not step twice into the same river; for other waters are ever flowing on to you.”
Here on earth, in this physical realm, life is constantly changing. And as people, we are changing and growing and living and learning all the time. This is why we are here! Embrace change, step boldly into the unknown, this is a journey of discovery and self-discovery.

Daily Tarot: Justice
Take everything and everyone a little bit more seriously today, without getting grim about it. People may bring you requests or problems that they think are shaking up their world, and you should offer at least a token respect for their worries and needs. None of this puts any pressure on you, unless you get emotionally involved. Remember, you have neither the power nor responsibility to fix it all.
