March is a boisterous fellow,
And undeterred by fear,
With many pranks proclaims himself
The tomboy of the year!
-The 1931 Old Farmer’s Almanac

Earth signs are the dependable, wise, and stable group of the zodiac. Tauruses, Virgos, and Capricorns are known for their grounding energy, their trustworthiness, and reliability—and potentially, their love of routine and stability.
Daily Dream Meaning: Paralyzed:
1. A sense of inability to act in a given situation, usually with regard to love. If the paralysis was total, then the dream may fear taking a certain action. It could be whether or not to declare his love, propose marriage, or break up. If the paralysis was only partial, sexual inhibitions could be the problem.
2. The dreamer may feel inhibited or blocked from moving ahead with plans for major changes in her life due to circumstances beyond her control.

Ever wonder what to do with the little bit of candle wax left at the bottom of the candle jar? Do you throw away the candle wax when the wick has burned down? Well, stop throwing your money away. Candles have not lost their usefulness just because they have burned down so small they are no longer safe to light. Candles can be re-used. I am going to walk you through a four step process of how to make new candles from used ones.

Elephant Journal: I’m Not into “Good Vibes Only”—give me Messy & Complicated & Human Instead.
I’m not into good vibes only.
Life doesn’t work that way, even though our social media platforms, like Instagram and Facebook, will have us believing it.
Perfect-looking people and trendy clothing, products, and destinations flood our feeds, selling a fantasy.

Patheos-Pagan: Irish-American Witchcraft: ‘Celtic’ Paganism and Ancestry
I’ve seen a noticeable uptick in the last several months among US-based Celtic* pagans (in particular) of the idea that ancestry is in some way essential to a Celtic pagan spirituality. I’m going to be honest: I find that idea concerning, so I decided that I’d write about it today and try to dig into the concept.
SPEAK KINDLY TO YOURSELF
“What is this self inside us, this silent observer, Severe and speechless critic, who can terrorize us, And urge us on to futile activity, And in the end, judge us still more severely, For the errors into which his own reproaches drove us?”
— T. S. Eliot
How do you talk to yourself? Would you talk that way to anyone else?
Our thoughts create our reality. How do you typically think about yourself? Do you berate yourself for being stupid, sloppy, forgetful or insensitive? Do you watch yourself with interest, respect and compassion? Stay alert to your self-talk and let go of judgments that don’t serve you.
“Self-acceptance is my refusal to be in an adversarial relationship to myself.”
— Nathaniel Branden

“Some animals, like some men, leave a trail of glory behind them. They give their spirit to the place where they have lived, and remain forever a part of the rocks and streams and the wind and sky.”
-Marguerite Henry, 1953
My favorite movie in 2003 was “Seabiscuit.” The horse was as much a character in that movie as the people that his human co-stars portrayed. You could feel Seabiscuit’s love and determination shine. He faced hard times, and overcame tragedy, and contributed so much to the people who came into his life. It’s an amazing story, and one that shows the important lessons we can learn from animals.
Daily Tarot: The Star
There is an unbeatable sense of peace and security emanating from you today. The Star card indicates that you have overcome a lot of obstacles in your love life lately, and you’ve learned to heavily rely on sensitivity and optimism. There is a sense of joy and peace encouraging you to move forward. Your next romantic move will be epic.
