“July is the seventh month of the year according to the Gregorian calendar. It was the fifth month in the early calendar of the ancient Romans. The Romans called the month Quintilius, which means fifth. A Roman Senate renamed the month to Julius (July) in honour of Julius Caesar, who was born on 12 July. The Anglo-Saxon names for the month included Heymonath or Maed monath, referring respectively to haymaking and the flowering of meadows.”

Spirituality & Health: How Rituals Rewire Your Brain
by Jessica Baron
While rituals may define us, we have a hard time defining them. Dig into the science of ritual.
You can spend weeks trying to find a single, satisfying, comprehensive definition of the word ritual, but we simply don’t have one. We can claim that rituals are sacred, public, symbolic performances or private, mundane daily activities, but the truth is that it’s a fuzzy concept

CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY TODAY
“It is always your next move.”
— Napoleon Hill
The great benefit of heightened awareness is that we have more choice in how we live our lives. At any moment, we can purposefully choose a new experience for ourselves. We can choose to pay attention, breathe more deeply, laugh, rest, play, appreciate, do something different – the possibilities are endless.
Whenever you remember, TAKE YOURSELF OFF AUTO-PILOT and really examine your situation. Take charge and make a choice that will enrich your experience. At the end of the day, reflect on what happened and how you felt when you chose a new line of thought, feeling or action.
“We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strange medley of life. But we can decide what happens in us — how we can take it, what we do with it — and that is what really counts in the end.”
— Joseph Fort Newton
“When a defining moment comes along, you can do one of two things. Define the moment, or let the moment define you.”
— Tin Cup (the movie)
And remember: “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”
— Neil Peart

“When humor goes, there goes civilization.”
We need humor to balance out all the other “stuff” that is going on in the world every day. Where would we be without our ability to laugh at ourselves. Situation comedies have always been popular on TV because they depict “situations” that we’ve all been in and can relate to – but they do it in such a way that we can see how funny the whole thing is! Today look at the world this way: “My Life is a SitCom!” Of course, you are the star of the show! And all your friends are relatives are supporting players. I’ll bet you’ll find lots of punch lines in the script!

Daily Tarot: The Chariot
There may be a lot of possible things to do and places to go today. You don’t need to instantly decide anything upon waking up. Let your intuition guide you, and continue listening to that intuition as you begin down the path you’ve chosen. If work or family have dictated today, don’t be resentful but let intuition sort out the easiest and best route for you to follow.
