ThoughtCo: Setting Up Your Lammas (Lughnasadh) Altar

It’s Lammas, or Lughnasadh, the Sabbat where many Pagans choose to celebrate the beginnings of the harvest. This Sabbat is about the cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth — the grain god dies, but will be reborn again in the spring. Depending on your tradition, you may also observe this Sabbat as the day of the Celtic craftsman god, Lugh.

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

It’s possible that a trust has been violated or a relationship may be hurt by a broken promise, or you sense that this might happen soon. Until you know for sure who and what might be involved, take no action, although the discreet question asked of a trustworthy person might be all right, though still risky. Make no accusations but respect your own self-interest.

MBG: Everything You Need To Know About Tonight’s Capricorn Full Moon & Eclipse

Remember those New Year’s resolutions you started mapping out in late December of last year? Maybe…and then again maybe not! But this Tuesday, July 16, you may hit a few of those milestones under the light of the Capricorn full moon. Look back particularly to January 5, 2019, the date of the Capricorn new moon solar eclipse. Any seeds planted then could come together now—or be up for a midyear review. Have you put in the sweat equity to reap the rewards for your hard work?

Elephant Journal: I Found the Divine in my Own Beating Heart. {Poem}

I carried a myth
for many years,
handed to a little boy
sitting in a church pew
every Sunday morning.
This world
was not to be trusted.

Patheos-Pagan: Out of the Broom Closet

When you meet people, do you tell them you’re a witch? Is it included in your descriptors, along with human, mom, friend, job title, and assorted hobbies/passions? Writer, baker, artist, tarot reader and more?

Inner Journey: 

TRUST IN ABUNDANCE

“Once, when we were discussing a world peace project with my teacher, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, somebody asked him, ‘Where is all the money going to come from?’ And he replied without hesitation, ‘From wherever it is at the moment.'”
— Deepak Chopra

How can you open to greater trust that you’ll always have what you need?

Fear, doubt, anxiety and disbelief all serve to repel abundance from us. Faith, love and gratitude for the gifts of our lives keep energy and abundance flowing. The more we trust in our well being, the more it will be realized.

“Manifestation is an act of trust. It is the soul pouring itself out into its world, like a fisherman casting a net to gather in the fish he seeks; with each cast properly made, we will bring what we need to us, but first we must hurl ourselves into the depths without knowing just what lies beneath us.”
— David Spangler

A Note from the Universe

Usually, the best way to find the yellow brick road of your life is to start out on the dusty, dirt one.

And then let yourself become so preoccupied in making the best of it, having fun, and challenging yourself that you actually stop paying attention to the path.

Until, one day, not so long from now, with a new best friend, wearing cool clothes, feeling awesome, a teeny tiny bit taller, fresh from a WOW vacation, looking for the path you just left, you’ll notice that it’s 24 carats… baby.

And you’ll wonder for a long, long time, sipping on some exotic fruit drink, when the transformation actually took place…

Tripping,

The Universe

Sharing

“Sharing what you have is more important than what you have.”

-Albert M. Wells, Jr.

Sharing is not limited to material things. We can share our memories, experiences, and knowledge for example. The beauty in this is that we aren’t giving those things away – we couldn’t if we tried! But they are so valuable, and they become even more valuable, when we share them other people. The most simple advice can be such a treasure. The fact that we are open and willing to share what we have learned can make this journey more beneficial for all of us.
