The coldness seemed more nigh, the coldness deepened
As a sound deepens into silences;
It was of earth and came not by the air;
The earth was cooling and drew down the sky.
-Gordon Bottomley (1874-1948)

MNN: Australian fires reveal ancient water system built long before the pyramids

EarthSky News: Sirius, future South Pole Star
Tonight, as darkness falls, use Orion’s Belt to star-hop to Sirius, a future South Pole Star. Sirius is in the constellation Canis Major, the Greater Dog. It’s sometimes called the Dog Star. It’s easy to see, since it’s the brightest star in the night sky. You’ll always know you’ve found Sirius if you notice that the three stars in Orion’s Belt point to it.
Patheos-Pagan: Chalice Meditation: Finding Emotional Stability In Aquarius Season 2020

REMOVE THE FILTERS
“You got to look at things with the eye in your heart, not with the eye in your head.”
— Lame Deer, Medicine Man of the Oglala people
Whenever we’re thinking, our experience is being filtered through our minds. For example, when I say to myself, “What a beautiful sunset!” I am not fully experiencing the sunset because I am involved with the words in my mind.
Explore letting go of the thoughts, the words, and connecting directly with your experiences. Tune in to the silence and the sensations in your body. Be aware of the spaciousness this brings because this is truly living in the present moment.
Being present doesn’t mean that we have to abandon thinking entirely. That’s not feasible, of course. But we can experiment with what it’s like to stop thinking once in a while!
“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”
— Hans Margolius

“Nobody has ever measured, even the poets, how much a heart can hold.”
-Zelda Fitzgerald, 1945
The heart is associated with love. How much love can we hold in our hearts? What is our capacity for love? It is immeasurable! There’s not a limit on how many people we can love, or how much we can love, or how deeply we can love. Love can’t be quantified.
Daily Tarot: The High Priestess
From the moment your eyes open, you’ll know that you’re not the one in charge today. That’s fine, too. Intuition is sharp and will not lead you astray, no matter what oddness the world tosses at you. Any challenges or problems will prove to be small ones. Keep a low profile, speak calmly and softly (when appropriate), and glide through a very lucky day
