Senate honored Augustus Caesar, the first Roman emperor, by changing the name of their month “Sextilis” to “Augustus.” Middle English speakers inherited the name of the month of August, but it wasn’t until the mid-1600s that “august” came to be used generically in English, more or less as “augustus” was in Latin, to refer to someone with imperial qualities.

Spirit Library: Mystical Space (a message from Kate Spreckley)
We are still in this mystical space between the old and the new which requires a profound willingness to let go of the past and any attachments we have to future outcomes. Currently, we are being urged to dive deeply into this space and rediscover the truth of who we are, to reconcile the past and recognise that all that we have endured has led us to this place where true mastery of self is possible.

EarthSky News: Here Are 2 Ways To Find The Andromeda Galaxy
Take a night to drive to a dark sky and find the glorious Andromeda galaxy. It’s the great spiral galaxy next door to our Milky Way and the most distant object you can see with your eye alone. It’s best seen in the evening at this time of year. Most people find the galaxy by star-hopping from the constellation Cassiopeia the Queen. It’s a very noticeable M- or W-shaped pattern on the sky’s dome. You can also find the Andromeda galaxy by star-hopping from the star Alpheratz in the Great Square of Pegasus.

Inner Journey: TRUST YOURSELF
“I never know what the next lesson is going to be, because we’re not supposed to know; we’re supposed to trust ourselves to discover it.”
— Melody Beattie
How deeply do you trust your own guidance?
Always trust that you know what’s best for you. To move forward in your life, gather information from the ‘experts,’ consider how their advice relates to your situation and then act only on what feels right for you. What does your whole being (mind, body and soul) say ‘Yes!’ to?
You are the only expert for your own life.
“I trust so much in the power of the heart and the soul; I know that the answer to what we need to do next is in our own hearts. All we have to do is listen, then take that one step further and trust what we hear. We will be taught what we need to learn.”
— Melody Beattie
“Ultimately, we must learn to trust ourselves. When we do this intimately and intelligently, the world opens full of meaning before us. We find that we ourselves are the doorway to a fathomless understanding of the source of life itself. We need only to learn to walk through it.”
— James Thornton

“So shall we come to look at the world with new eyes.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
New eyes, a fresh perspective, an improved outlook. Think of all of the ways that we describe clarity. Clarity is used here as in seeing more clearly, or understanding more deeply. Seeing with that inner vision, the mind’s eye, is important for our learning and growth.

Daily Tarot: The Tower
Your emotions and instincts are working overtime today and this can distract you from doing the simplest of things. Whatever difficulties you encounter today – and they should be small ones – you will create more problems for yourself by being too psychically overactive. If someone is preoccupied with you and wishing you to have a rough day, you’ll know it but maybe not know who it is.
