The season comes when, from her three-month’s trance,
The Earth awakens: already her deep heart
Begins to stir, and send its life abroad.
–Thomas Buchanan Read (1822–72)

Daily Dream Meaning: Sports (includes Ball)

1. If you are playing at a team sport, busy times working with other people lie ahead. Whether or not your team wins or loses indicates your level of success. Losing the game, however, does NOT mean failure. It only indicates delays.
2. If you are watching a team playing a team sport, you may feel isolated from the others around you – being on the “outside looking in.” Courage may be necessary for you to join with your community.
3. Participating in an individual event, such as in golf, tennis, swimming or track indicates a strong desire to improve yourself and your circumstances.


Daily Good: Connected

Singer songwriter Luke Dick and a talented group of young people connect in this short video to share a message of hope. With youthful enthusiasm the young conductor leads her small group through the song, enabling us to “hear that cosmic spark” of connection. As the drums, guitar, violin, keyboard and voices all combine in joyful music, we are reminded that we are all connected with all that is, with all that was, and with all that will be. { read more }

Inner Journey:


“It is not helpful to help a friend by putting coins in his pockets when he has got holes in his pockets.”
— Douglas Hurd

Are you struggling financially because you are helping another adult who is being irresponsible around money?

Without intending to do so, we can keep people dependent when we are willing to financially rescue them. Enablers typically feel it’s their duty to help out. They may see giving money as an expression of love. Unfortunately, they may lose their own financial security as a result.

As hard as it may be to do, the solution may lie in forcing the dependent to find his or her own way financially. In this case, it’s not selfish to not lend a hand — it actually serves the highest interests of all. Learning personal responsibility can be a tough road but it’s a necessary one for empowerment.

“Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon them and to let them know that you trust them.”
— Booker T. Washington

Today’s Track: Old Village – The Call of The Old Gods (Pagan Folk music)


A Note from the Universe 

Stunning rebounds, life altering transformations, and miracles of every shape and size, all follow a fairly simple 2-step formula.

First, there must be a connection made in the unseen.

Second, there must be a leap in the physical.

Well concerning your beautiful vacation home, thought you’d like to know that the connection’s been made, and it’s taken our breath away.

Happy landings,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
March 23, 2020

“All rising to great place is by a winding stair.”

-Francis Bacon (1561-1626)
Ever noticed how it is harder to climb up than it is to climb down? It’s a tough go, each step is a challenge, and the higher you go, the harder it gets because you get tired and sore from working so hard. But the air gets more clear, and the view gets better – there are many advantages to “rising above.” Sometimes we can take those stairs two at a time – but most often it’s just a matter of putting one foot in front of the other to make continual progress

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Moon

Look at both sides of the situations you encounter today. The Moon represents illusions and the gray areas that we are unsure of, but being afraid to face the unknown will only lead to more uncertainty. Confront your subconscious in order to stop avoiding the inevitable. Sweeping things under the rug will only make them worse. Your imagination takes you to new romantic heights.
