“Give me the joys of summer,
Of Summer Queen so fair,
With wealth of lovely flowers
And fruits and sun-kissed air!
Talk not to me of winter
With ice and frost and snow,
Nor changing spring and autumn
When howling winds will blow.
No, I will take the joys
Of Summer every time,
So to this Queen of Seasons
I dedicate my rhyme.”
Winifred Sackville Stoner, Midsummer Joys

Exemplore: Mabon Autumn Equinox: Through the Eyes of an Anthropologist
MOLLY LYONSJUL 28, 2022
What Does Mabon Celebrate?
The Autumn Equinox typically falls in the middle of the month of September. To some, it is just another day that marks the transition from summer to fall. To many Pagans, however, it is a religious holiday that marks the end of the second harvest and soon the end of the Wheel of the Year.
Treehugger: What’s the Difference Between Ravens and Crows?
One is larger, smarter, and perhaps more vocally complex than the other.
If you see an all-black bird soaring overhead, it’s likely a crow or a raven. Which of the two classes of corvid it belongs to, however, can feel like anyone’s guess to a beginner birder.

Patheos-Pagan: Following the Moon
AUGUST 26, 2022 BY IRISANYA MOON
I recently learned how to take a picture of the moon with my phone.
It’s a small thing, a small ritual.
A moment of focus on the shape of waning and waxing, and the brief stops in arrival and loss.

SPACE TO EXPLORE
“No one can find his work, what he really wants to put all of himself into, when everything he does he is made to do by others. This kind of searching must be done freely or not at all.”
— John Holt
We all need space — free from demands, deadlines, expectations and judgments — to explore who we are and what life is all about. Free time, with absolutely no agenda, is rich with potential. How can we grow if we have no space and freedom to dream?
“Deny children — or anyone else — the chance to do ‘nothing,’ and we may be denying them the chance to do ‘something’ — to find and do any work that is truly important to themselves or to someone else.”
— John Holt

“The growth of the soul may be compared to the growth of a plant. In both cases, no new properties are imparted by the operation of external causes, but only the inward tendencies are called into action and clothed with strength.”
-George Ripley (1802-1880)
Oftentimes when we talk about spiritual growth we compare it with the growth of a plant – planting the seed, allowing it space and time to grow with its own innate intelligence. We use this example because we understand how the growth of a plant “works.” We’ve seen seedlings sprout, we’ve had potatoes take root in glasses of water in our fifth grade science classes. And we need this kind of illustration because spiritual growth is not something we necessarily “see.” It is an internal phenomenon, something we feel, something we experience, something that goes beyond words or pictures.

Daily Tarot: The Sun
Little or nothing will slow you down or be daunting to you today. You have so much inner strength, and physical strength, too, that people will have trouble keeping up with you. Do something special today, or perhaps excel at something significant and challenging that will be easily within your grasp. You may find out later that you were dazzling and that you inspired several people to more energetically pursue their passions.
