The field a scarlet gown-

The actual conjunction date – when Mars passes 3 degrees north of Spica – is November 8, 2019.

Inner Journey:


“We don’t laugh because we’re happy, we’re happy because we laugh.”
— William James

Why laugh?

Laughter nourishes the soul and triggers joy. It’s a natural stress reliever. It stimulates the immune system and increases oxygen, stamina and our breathing capacity. Medical literature is full of reasons to laugh for the health of it.

Don’t rely upon your funny friends, favorite sit-com or jokes to tickle your funny bone — just laugh for the joy of it!

“Laughter is like the human body wagging its tail.”
— Anne Wilson Schaef

Daily Tarot: The Tower

If any problems arise today, they will probably come out of being careless about something simple and normally no trouble at all. Carelessness is the chief threat to having things go smoothly. Even if only small things are lost, broken, or need to be redone, it can make tomorrow even more of a mess than today might be. Pay attention to details, take your time and do your best.

In the springtime: April violets glow
In wayside nooks, close clustering into groups,
Like shy elves hiding from traveller’s eye.

-Thomas Buchanan Read (1822-72)


Spirit Library: The Springtime of Your Soul

Dear Ones,

It is the springtime of your soul and you do not wish to “have to” do anything other than watch flowers and trees bloom.

So it is you find yourself irritated with those who attempt to have you conform to their idea of what is right for you

What if you could sit atop a cloud and watch the rain fall? In this activity, you can see what is actually happening in the sky before a rain storm. Clouds are formed when moisture is collected in the air. When you see a cloud, you’re looking at water vapor that has attached itself to condensation nuclei, dust and small particles in the sky

Elephant Journal: The First Step in Letting Go.

My deepest intuition has always been to hold on.
As far back as I can remember, I’ve held on too tightly to every attachment, and I’ve done everything in my power not to let go. To never say goodbye. To be steadfast in my devotion to anything and everything. White-knuckled, fists clenched, clawing for a stronghold that will allow me to resist change


Herbal Muse: Rosemary-Mint Soap Balls

The scent of this simple, natural “ugly” soap is invigorating and fresh. It’s especially nice to use during the warm weather months.

EarthSky News: Moon in Winter Circle April 10 and 11

For the next few evenings – April 10 and 11, 2019 – look for the moon and Winter Circle (or Winter Hexagon) stars. It’s difficult to convey the humongous size of the Winter Circle that fills our western sky at dusk and nightfall. It even dwarfs the constellation Orion the Mighty Hunter, which makes up the southwest portion of this a great big lasso of 1st-magnitude stars.

Inner Journey:


“The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started.”
— Dawson Trotman

Procrastination seriously drains our energy and our morale. What remains undone nags at us. What are you avoiding?

Make a list of items and then review each one. Does it really need to be done? After you’ve reviewed your list, prioritize it and start one task today.

Please do not procrastinate taking one minute to write down your answer to this question. Capture it on paper and this will help build awareness, commitment and discipline.

“How soon not now, becomes never.”
— Martin Luther

“Talk does not cook rice.”
— Chinese proverb

“Do you know what happens when you give a procrastinator a good idea? Nothing!”
— Donald Gardner
