Where long the shadows of the wind had rolled,
Green wheat was yielding to the change assigned;
And as by some vast magic undivined
The world was turning slowly into gold.
–Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

Patheos: Mabon Reset Ritual
By now, the leaves are turning and the temperatures are getting a bit cooler (or not, if you are experiencing a late summer heatwave). Summer seems like a whisper in your ear, and the wind rustles amidst the swirling leaves. Mabon is beckoning as a time of balance, which always strikes me as highly ironic, as this begins during the most unbalanced time of all. School routines are in place, the weekends are full of activity, there are endless chores to do, the holidays are looming, and we begin the descent into the last part of the year.

Sure, all babies are cute, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t also extremely weird. Babies are eating, sleeping and pooping machines that double their weight in their first few months of life. And they pack a whole lot of oddness in while they’re at it.

Taurus is a far-northern constellation of the zodiac. That fact causes these stars to rise at an earlier hour in the Northern Hemisphere than in the Southern Hemisphere.

“Our sadness is an energy we discharge in order to heal. …Sadness is painful. We try to avoid it. Actually discharging sadness releases the energy involved in our emotional pain. To hold it in is to freeze the pain within us. The therapeutic slogan is that grieving is the ‘healing feeling.'”
— John Bradshaw
“To weep is to make less the depth of grief.”
— William Shakespeare
“There is no despair so absolute as that which comes with the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and be healed, to have despaired and recovered hope.”

“England and America are two countries separated by the same language.”
-George Bernard Shaw (1856-1932)
This is so funny, and so true! I had this experience when visiting Australia. I felt a little bit like Alice in Wonderland! I could understand every word that people spoke, and yet many times I had no idea what they were talking about! The Australians still use the more traditional English terms, and somehow in America we’ve found another way. Is it a boot or a trunk? A bonnet or a hood? A footpath or a sidewalk? A trolley or a cart? A serviette or a napkin? And there is the same kind of communication “gap” between American adults and teenagers a lot of times… Is it good, bad or sweet? Hot, hip or cool? I could go on and on, but as they say, “a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet.” What matters is that we talk with each other, the rest is “details!”
Daily Tarot: Justice
You might prefer to do most things on your own today, but that may not be permitted. Find ways to involve others and enlist help, or simply let them do their part. Wait until tonight to decompress in private. It’s important to keep an even temper and not let others manipulate you emotionally. Your feelings are being strongly projected, so treat others with tact and avoid anger.
