The summer solstice brings the longest day. But the earliest sunrises come before the summer solstice.

Patheos-Pagan: As Oppression Increases, So Does Witchcraft
JUNE 8, 2022 BY JOHN BECKETT

“People are defeated by easy, victorious and cheap successes more than by adversity.”
— Benjamin Disraeli
Today’s social standard is one of mediocrity. The status quo rarely challenges our individual creative power.
Create a brand new world for yourself, one that meets your deepest needs. By doing so, you will help raise the quality of consciousness of the entire world. Use your imagination! Sing your own song!
“Success means fulfilling your own dreams, singing your own song, dancing your own dance, creating from your heart and enjoying the journey, trusting that whatever happens, it will be OK. Creating your own adventure!”
— Elana Lindquist
A Note from the Universe
Some look, but don’t see.
Some listen, but don’t hear.
And some know but don’t do.
And they all have fun… but not jumping-waving-crazy-dodgeball kind of fun.

“I’ve dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas: they’ve gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.”
-Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights (1847)
Whether we’re talking about dreams that occur in our sleep state, or dreams as ambitions, we have these experiences for a reason. Dreams become a part of us, a part of who we are, and a factor in the decisions that we make. Embrace your dreams, pursue them, and watch them change and grow as you do.

Daily Tarot: Temperance
Pace yourself today and get more done than you might imagine as the day begins. It’s all right to be tired from time to time. It doesn’t have to cripple all your plans for the day. Maintain a sensible balance, remember to eat healthy, take a short break once and a while, and don’t aim too high. There’s plenty of work to be done that you can handle with ease.
