And the spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the spirit of love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on earth’s dark breast
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
-Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

A big part of that is setting yourself up an actual workspace instead of just working wherever we find ourselves.

Elephant Journal: Why Going Within is the Only Way Out Right Now.
Forced isolation. Financial and health concerns. Fear of scarcity. Fear of the future as a whole.
It seems we are now characters of a near-future dystopic novel written by Margaret Atwood or George Orwell. We’re living during chaotic governments ruled by science deniers who say we are overreacting and that climate change isn’t something to worry about until, let’s say, 20 years from now.

I have my online teaching schedule to suss out. There are long term goals and plans that I could be putting my time and energy into
Today’s Track: pagan wiccan music. summer solstice (original track)
“It is while trying to get everything straight in my head that I get confused.”
— Mary Virginia Micka
When I get confused, when my mind is wrestling with what to do, I have learned to abandon my thought processes completely. The best solution, I’ve discovered, lies in asking my heart for direction. This requires that I stop my mental chatter, either by sitting in silence or by doing something completely different. In quiet, still space, I often know what’s needed, with a clarity I never get from the labouring of my mind.
And I now know, without doubt, that when I’m confused is never the time to act. I must wait for clarity.
“I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.”
— Daniel Boone
A Note from the Universe
What if today you could wipe the slate clean, start over, and write your own ticket?
No. Wait. Let’s change that. What if every day you could wipe the slate clean, start over, and write your own ticket?
How many days would have to go by before you discovered that your “slate” and your “ticket” have nothing to do with each other? That your past need not live in your future?
Your absolute freedom and total power lie in the present moment.

“Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.”
-Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)
It all starts with us – right where we are. We have the capacity for greatness, we have the ability to achieve and accomplish whatever it is that we set out to do. But do we know this? Do we believe it? Do we act as if this is true? Or do we hesitate, procrastinate, or hedge our bets? We must be confident and forge ahead if we are going to get anywhere. And how far we go is simply a matter of how fast we move and how long we keep going!
Daily Tarot: Death
You may have done some things that you aren’t proud of lately, but the Death card shows that a new you is about to emerge. Like a butterfly coming out of its cocoon, you have the chance to transform yourself into something completely new and different. An ending will inevitably take place in order for you to do so, but accepting the loss for what it is speeds up the healing process
