Thought For The Day: June 19, 2019 “Life”

Happy Wednesday,

Life is like the movies. Over time we experience all the popular genres. Action, Adventure, Romance,  Sci-Fi, Comedy, Drama, Mystery, Fiction and Thriller with side plots both interesting and boring thrown in for good measure.  Remember that while many things are predictable, life itself is not. Keep buying your tickets and be an active participant in what your life has to offer!

Thought For the Day: March 21, 2019 “Outside The Comfort Zone”

Happy Thursday ,

Our lives are a continual work in progress. Just like nature our lives are made of cycles of both growth and dormancy. Our growth requires us to step outside of our comfort zone which is where blessings and opportunities reside. Challenge yourself daily by moving out of your comfort zone and enter life’s grand adventure.

MBG: A Sign-By-Sign Guide To Breezing Through This Mercury Retrograde

It’s Mercury retrograde time again—for the first time in 2019. Three or four times a year, Mercury passes the earth in its orbit. As it rounds the bend, Mercury slows down and appears to stop (station) and spin backward (retrograde). Of course, it really ISN’T moving backward, but much like two trains or cars passing each other, this creates the optical illusion that one (Mercury, in this case) is going backward.

MNN: Painted lady butterflies fill the skies over southern California

Painted lady butterflies are arriving in droves in southern California as they make their annual migration northward, and their arrival is a delight to many.

It’s also a reassuring sight to scientists who worried that the migration would be sparse this year. They have desert rains to thank for the surprising population boom.

EarthSky News: Moon and Winter Circle March 13-15

These next several evenings – March 13, 14 and 15, 2019, the waxing moon is moving inside the Winter Circle, sometimes called the Winter Hexagon. It’s a large circular (hexagonal) star asterism – not one of the 88 official constellations, but just a noticeable pattern of stars – consisting of six 1st-magnitude stars in six separate constellations:

Patheos-Pagan: A Wonderful Devotional to the Earth: Early Spring Garden Goals and Tips

The first rule of Plant Club is: you talk about Plant Club. The second rule of Plant Club is: you talk A LOT about Plant Club. Pagans like green things, but just because you love the horned god doesn’t make you good at helping flowers get it on. As this gardening season marches on (pun intended) I’m going to be letting you all in on some of the tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years, as a horticulturalist, organic farm manager, and urban farmer. Demeter and Gerda agree with me, this gardening thing is a good plan for pagans

Inner Journey:

LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE

“We don’t always know what makes us happy. We know, instead, what we think SHOULD. We are baffled and confused when our attempts at happiness fail…We are mute when it comes to naming accurately our own preferences, delights, gifts, talents. The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations. The tongue of the original self is the language of the heart.”
— Julia Cameron

We are each unique beings with a unique path in life. If we wish to be fulfilled, we need to go to our own hearts for direction. We might regularly ask ourselves:
• “What do I really want to do?”
• “What brings me greatest happiness?”
• “How can I bring more of these into my life?”

Life wants us to go for what brings us most joy and meaning.

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. …I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.”
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“Let me listen to me and not to them.”
— Gertrude Stein

“What you must dare is to be yourself.”
— Dag Hammarskjold

Energy

“Life engenders life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.

-Sarah Bernhardt (1966)

Energy is one of those things that seems to be contagious! Have you ever noticed how a low-energy meeting gets revved up when someone comes up with a great idea? We feed off each others’ energy all the time! How great is it to be the one who can light up a room?! Let’s do what we can to lift the energy around us every day – it could be as simple as sharing a smile.

Tetraktys: Witchcraft Troubleshooting: 5 Reasons Why Your Spell Failed

If, like me, you work according to the moon phases, you will easily know if a spell failed. If you set your intentions at the New Moon and release your expectations at the Full Moon, all your spellwork should run smoothly. However, if, when you reach the next New Moon, things have not improved, then something must have gone wrong. You will probably ask yourself “Why did it fail?” The truth is, even if you perform a spell perfectly, sometimes, the results won’t come. In this post, you will learn the 5 most common reasons of spell failures. I will also show you how to make sure that it doesn’t happen again.

Thought For The Day: Feb.18, 2019 “Momentum”

Happy Monday,

This quote reminds me of my dance instructor. I can hear her right now telling the class ” Keep your eyes up and don’t look at the floor, there is nothing interesting down there!” When we “look down” it stops our momentum so to keep moving forward we must look up……

Thought For The Day: Jan. 24, 2019 “Dark and Light”

Happy Thursday,

Life isn’t always sunshine, flowers and unicorns. It contains swamps, quicksand and dark forests as well. To know ourselves better we must be willing to face these dark places with courage. The darkness teaches us many valuable lessons and helps us to appreciate the good things that we have and that lie ahead.
