Lo, yonder she sitteth, her breast against a brier.
-Thomas Dekker (c. 1572-1632)

How to Bless the Entrance to Your Home
If you’ve moved into a new home, it’s not a bad idea to do a magical or spiritual cleansing of the place before you get truly settled in. In addition to ritually purifying the interior of the home, many people like to do a threshold blessing, which creates a symbolic doorway to the home.

Patheos-Pagan: Seeking the Magick of Enough in the Too Much: Calling on Allies
I am grateful for the magick of moments. Ordinary and necessary.
I was sitting at my desk the other day, trying and failing to avoid the news, and I looked out the window. The winds were blowing, fresh green leaves swaying and bouncing against each other.
And in that moment, I noticed my lungs move in time with the breeze. Like the world was breathing with me. Like the world was trying to find its center too
BELIEVE IN MAGIC!
“…for magic to happen in your life, you must believe in magic.”
— Grandmother, quoted by Lynn Andrews
“Most of the time, we fall in love but can’t remain there. The world then calls the state we were in a delusion or infatuation … But we merely lacked, or someone else lacked, the emotional skills to hold on to the magic when the morning came. …In truth, we can go to the moon and retain its magic for a lifetime.”
— Marianne Williamson
“We think, sometimes, there’s not a dragon left. Not one brave knight, not a single princess gliding through secret forests … What a pleasure to be wrong. Princesses, knights, enchantments and dragons, mystery and adventure … not only are they here-and-now, they’re all that ever lived on earth! Masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that we’ve never lost the shield we need against dragons, that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now to change our world as we wish. Intuition whispers true: We’re not dust, we’re magic!”
— Richard Bach

3.Waiting for divine intervention is almost never a good idea.

Today’s Deity: Ishtar
Ishtar, (Akkadian), Sumerian Inanna, in Mesopotamian religion, goddess of war and sexual love. Ishtar is the Akkadian counterpart of the West Semitic goddess Astarte. Inanna, an important goddess in the Sumerian pantheon, came to be identified with Ishtar, but it is uncertain whether Inanna is also of Semitic origin or whether, as is more likely, her similarity to Ishtar caused the two to be identified.

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man
Everybody falls victim to a misjudgment or a faulty calculation sometimes, so don’t let that be a reason to grind to a halt and stop working on what matters to you. Sometimes deception is involved, but that does not free you from the obligation to try and set things right. It’s all about being responsible, and that’s what you want to be, anyway.
