EarthSky News: Delta Aquariids 2021: All You Need To Know
Moonlight to obtrude in 2021
The long and rambling Delta Aquariid shower presents meteors from about July 12 to August 23 each year. The nominal peak falls on or near July 29. Yet, the shower usually provides a decent number of meteors for several days after and before the peak. Unfortunately, in 2021, the bright waning gibbous moon will probably wash out a good number of these rather faint meteors. As we move into early August, a much fainter waning crescent moon will be less intrusive.

Pagan/ New Age Playlist: Dance of Life • Relaxing Fantasy Music for Relaxation & Meditation
“It’s surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you’re not comfortable within yourself, you can’t be comfortable with others.”
— Sydney J. Harris
“We have the need to be accepted and to be loved by others, but we cannot accept and love ourselves. The more self-love we have, the less we will experience self-abuse. Self-abuse comes from self-rejection, and self-rejection comes from having an image of what it means to be perfect and never measuring up to that ideal. Our image of perfection is the reason we reject ourselves the way we are, and why we don’t accept others the way they are.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz
“There is no freedom like seeing myself as I am and not losing heart.”
— Elizabeth J. Canham
“If we could learn to like ourselves, even a little, maybe our cruelties and angers might melt away.”
— John Steinbeck

“If self-knowledge is the road to virtue, so is virtue still more the road to self-knowledge.”
-Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (1763-1825)
We’re here to learn and grow, to know more about our selves. Virtue is something we have to define individually. It’s natural evolution for us to become more virtuous as we move along the path because we understand more about ourselves and our true nature.

If you apply concentrated effort, you should be able to make a huge headway. Even if not, your single-minded approach will attract allies for tomorrow. You have more influence and authority than you suspect. Use them wisely.
