Good Morning Beautiful Souls! Grab a cup of your favorite morning brew and start things off with “Today’s Inspirations”. I hope you find something here that will make you feel good or help you on your path today.
“From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April dress’d in all his trim
Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing,
That heavy Saturn laugh’d and leap’d with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odour and in hue
Could make me any summer’s story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew;
Nor did I wonder at the lily’s white,
Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
Yet seem’d it winter still, and, you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play.”
William Shakespeare, Sonnet 98

Exemplore: Simple Wiccan Beltane Ritual for Solitaries (No Ritual Tools Necessary)
MACKENZIE SAGE WRIGHTAUG 3, 2022
Beltane rituals are often elaborate rites planned for big crowds—and while I urge you to attend a group ritual if you can, nothing beats the simple beauty of a solitary Wiccan ritual. I wrote this Beltane ritual a long while back, and have performed it alone or with my family many times. I’ve always found it very enjoyable, and hope you will, too.

Daily Tarot Wednesday: Justice
You may be dealing with people who feel inferior or weaker than you, so take care to not run over anyone. Equally, they do not have to serve as an excuse for you to go slower or do less than you know is necessary. Be firm but not too firm, determined but not too determined. Get a lot of good work done.
Daily Tarot Thursday: The Star
You enjoy an extra dose of protection today, so approach the day with confidence and a great sense of graciousness. Your angels are voluntarily working overtime on your behalf, so take advantage of all opportunities to do good and to make progress in your daily life. Do a nice deed for someone else and know you’ve been rewarded in advance. More blessings will be on the way.
