MBG: Gemini Season Is Here & There’s Never Been A Better Time To Explore

Charming Gemini is the star sign of kindred spirit energy and is always seeking a complementary companion. During Gemini season, the energy is shapeshifting and versatile, but we may play the Devil’s Advocate TOO much at times, and start arguments just for arguments’ sake. Your antidote? Change the subject! This chatty solar cycle will have us bouncing between topics, plans, and social engagements

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

Relax, take a deep breath, and don’t let any feelings of anxiety derail your plans for the day. A certain level of nervousness may be in the air today but it doesn’t have to be contagious and you don’t have to catch it. If a touch of anxiety serves to give you a greater sense of caution, that can be a good thing.

MNN: What is déjà rêvé?

The mind shouldn’t be allowed to play tricks on us.
It is, after all, our only interface with reality, processing every sensation in every moment to define our very existence.

So when the brain repeats itself, we’ve got all kinds of questions for it. Was that real? Didn’t I already have that same experience? Have I lived this life more than once?

Oak & Olive: Drying Flowers for Magic and Ritual

I absolutely love flowers. I don’t care if they’re outside or inside, cut or potted. They are all beautiful. And if dried or pressed, they can be used in a variety of ways in ritual and magic.
When my husband brought home dozens of red roses from Ohio University’s graduation ceremonies a few weeks ago, my whole face lit up.

Present

“We are tomorrow’s past.”

-Mary Webb, Precious Bane, 1924

We can’t change what has happened in the past. We can learn from it, and grow from it, and ultimately go on from where we are now. We cannot predict the future – it is filled with infinite possibilities. The best we can do is to live, and love, the moment we’re in. Life is like Disneyland – if we are thinking about the next ride and how we’re getting there, we can’t enjoy the ride we’re on right here and now!

EarthSky News: Waxing toward full Hunter’s Moon

Patheos-Pagan: Celebrating Hermes, Messenger God & Guide Of Souls, On Samhain
Hermes is the messenger of the gods in the Greek pantheon, “angelos ton theon” or “Angelos Athanatôn“. He’s also known as psychopompos, or psychopomp which means “guide of souls”. Like Hekate, he is a god of traveling between the worlds, and is a god of travel in general. Both of these deities are strongly connected with one another. So it’s fairly straightforward why in addition to recommending Hekate as a good deity to honor during Samhain, I also recommend giving Hermes his due.

Inner Journey: 

LET GO OF THE PAST

“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think that you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.”
— Asha Tyson

No regrets. As we become more aware, we begin to realize that there’s a purpose to everything that happens. This builds our trust, and supports us in being willing to be more open and daring to really experience life as it unfolds.

If we pay attention to what’s happening in each moment, we will discover that life continually brings us opportunities to heal our past wounds. When a painful memory surfaces, we can take the time to feel it fully, give compassion to ourselves and any others and allow the energy to release. As we deal with the past in this way IN THE PRESENT, we free ourselves to more fully connect with life.

“The next message you need is right where you are.”
— Ram Dass

A Note from the Universe

For millennia the path to enlightenment has been made up of many steps.

Most commonly, it begins with festering misunderstandings that lead to pain, the pain then leads to growth, growth leads to clarity, clarity leads to fun, fun leads to joy, and joy leads to true illumination.

May I recommend skipping to the fun part?

Love you forever –

Today’s Recipe: Avocado Quick Bread

I had a couple avocados that had been in the fridge for a few extra days. I thought they might be a bit too old, they weren’t, but I was committed to trying to make quick bread. I found this recipe on the tablespoon.com site and then changed it up a tiny bit. If I make it again I will definitely add chopped walnuts. The batter had a delightful flowery aroma and the bread itself is delicious.

Forgiveness

“Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself.” -Harriet Uts Nelson

When we hold on to our grudges, when we refuse to forgive, the only one we are really hurting is ourself. Why cause ourselves unnecessary pain? Where is the spiritual lesson in that? We can choose to release these grievances and choose to create a miracle. Forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves.

-Lissa Coffey
