O my Luve is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve’s is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.
-Robert Burns (1759-96)

ThoughtCo: Jar Spells in Folk Magic
In many traditions of folk magic, particularly in North America, a spell is sealed inside a jar, bottle or another container. This serves a number of purposes – the first being that it keeps the magic concentrated, and prevents it from escaping before the spell has been completed. The other nice feature of a jar or bottle spell is its portability – you can take it anywhere you like, whether it’s buried under a doorstep, tucked into a hollow tree, placed gently upon your mantle, or dropped into a port-a-john
MBG: 5 Natural Ingredients You Can Use As DEET-Free Mosquito Repellent
We’re smack in the middle of summer, and that means time at the beach, days in the sun, and unfortunately, for many of us, being eaten alive by mosquitoes. Next to humidity and sunburns, bug bites are definitely on the list of summer’s downsides

Elephant Journal: 25 Days of Gratitude for a Life Well-Lived.
I meditate early morning outside on my back lawn overlooking a lagoon that feeds into the Caribbean Sea.
It is serene. The waves come and go like the hundreds of thoughts that are running through my mind. I hear the birds having their first conversations and experience the new shades of amber appearing on the horizon. A soft cool breeze blows playfully through my hair.

EarthSky News: See Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown
Tonight, look for the constellation Corona Borealis, also known as the Northern Crown. You’ll need a pretty dark sky to see it, but, if you have one, the constellation is easy to pick out because it makes the shape of the letter C. Hopefully, tonight’s waxing crescent moon won’t be too intrusive, but remember that the last week of July 2019 will offer deliciously dark skies.
Patheos-Pagan: Erupting With Truth Under The New Moon
A while ago, I ran an experiment to look at the energetic blocks people carry in their chakras. By experiment I don’t mean in a measurable, white lab coat way. No, not at all. More like this: sitting at home with a pendulum and remotely connecting with 80+ strangers (well, people who like me on Facebook so loosely acquainted) who had volunteered to be energetically spied upon by me.
“As long as you don’t forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind.”
— Isabelle Holland
We cannot avoid daily resentment and thoughts of guilt. They are a part of human nature. What we can do is release their grip on us. We can forgive others and ourselves daily.
Forgiveness requires nothing in return. There are no conditions. It gets rid of old baggage and clears up unfinished business. It leads us to a life of authenticity, lightness and directness. Forgiveness is the highest form of letting go of resentment and ego.
True forgiveness is more than an apology, understanding and acceptance. There is an element of recreating and re-imagining. There is a need to envision ourselves as more loving, interdependent, courageous and compassionate. Forgiveness requires honouring the sacred journey of learning about life – our life and others’.
“Whatever we have done, we can always make amends for it without ever looking back in guilt or sorrow.”
— Eknath Easwaran
