May Quotes

“The young May moon is beaming, love.
The glow-worm’s lamp is gleaming, love.
How sweet to rove,
Through Morna’s grove,
When the drowsy world is dreaming, love!
Then awake! — the heavens look bright, my dear,
‘Tis never too late for delight, my dear,
And the best of all ways
To lengthen our days
Is to steal a few hours from the night, my dear!”

Thomas Moore, The Young May Moon

Pagan Playlist: Ayla Schafer “Agua del Amor” Lyric Video


Inner Journey:


“It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.”
— Agnes Repplier

Are you happy?

Don’t answer too quickly. Sit with this question for a long time and you’ll be introduced to brand new dimensions of who you are and of what matters in your life.

“Happiness comes only when we push our brains and hearts to the farthest reaches of which we are capable.”
— Leo C. Rosten


A Note from the Universe

Sure you can do less and have more once enlightened… but when your moment of transcendence finally arrives, and at last you realize that the world spins in your very hand, your thoughts literally become things, and there’s truly nothing you can’t do, be, or have… who would want to do less?

Have at it, Grasshopper –

Today’s Tarot: Thursday The Hermit

Think twice before you speak or act and avoid any slip up or oversight that could make extra work for you tomorrow. Exercise more discretion, check the facts, and don’t automatically believe everything that you’re told. Be clear that you’re not suspecting the world of lying to you; you’re simply being prudent and cautious. It shows how much you care about getting things set right for everyone.

Today’s Tarot Friday: The Wheel of Fortune

Whatever you have planned or prepared for today, it probably won’t happen according to the script. Be flexible and expect the unexpected. It may not be anything big, so don’t completely abandon your agenda unless you must. It could just be a day of endless interruptions. Keep that sense of humor handy, and maybe find an inspiring idea or two in it all.
