Elephant Journal: Fall Seasonal Stress: 9 things to Reach For instead of that Pumpkin Spice Latte.

In less than a month, the official first day of fall will be upon us.
Families everywhere are bracing for the start of a new school year and all it entails.
Back to school shopping, supply lists, first day jitters, and figuring out the complicated pick-up and drop-offs, homework procedures, and bus stop, daycare, and sports schedules that every new autumn brings is enough to send anyone into a downward spiral of pumpkin spice lattes, comfy lounge pants, and Netflix binging.

EarthSky News: Watch for a young moon after sunset

The hunt for a young moon – a thin crescent moon visible in the west after sunset – has become a favorite activity for many of EarthSky’s moon-watching fans. Although the new moon came to pass on August 30, 2019, we’re expecting a number of people around the world to catch the whisker-thin waxing crescent after sunset August 31. If you miss the exceedingly slender young moon at dusk on August 31, give it another try on September 1, 2 or 3. Look west, shortly after sunset.

Patheos-Pagan:  Solitary Witch: Living, Being, Doing

From the beginning of my spiritual journey in the Craft, I’ve been a Solitary Witch. Living, being, and doing witchcraft on my own feels right to me. Why? Independence is a major factor. I’m responsible for my spiritual and magickal journey.

Inner Journey:

Willingness to change

“At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it.”
— Thich Nhat Hahn

How are you feeling in this moment? If you are not feeling great, are you willing to make the effort right now to shift your focus so you feel better? Finding something to appreciate will do it.

If you are not willing, that’s okay. Don’t judge yourself. Just be aware that you are choosing to stay where you are.

“Choice of attention… is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases, a man is responsible for his choice and must accept the consequences, whatever they may be.”
— W.H. Auden

A Note from the Universe

Wild, huh how the entirety of living deliberately can be summed up in just three words?

Thoughts become things.

Of course, beliefs are important too, but your thoughts can change what you believe.

And words are important, they’re your thoughts that will become things the soonest.

And taking action is absolutely critical, because it alone connects the dots.
Spread the word,

The Universe

Leisure

“Leisure, some degree of it, is necessary to the health of every man’s spirit.”

-Harriet Martineau, Society in America (1837)

A woman said this, so we can assume that she naturally meant every man and woman’s spirit! And this is so true. We care for the health of our body by eating right and exercising. We care for our mental health by learning new things and solving problems. The best way to care for the health of our spirit is to enjoy some time at leisure, doing what we love to do. It’s refreshing and invigorating!

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

Be calm, proactive, and don’t exhaust yourself with endless fear. Any number of things might backfire or go wrong today, just like any other day, and there is little if anything extraordinary to be fearful about now. Your basic sense of insecurity may be higher than normal today, but this will pass soon. Take heart and be your normal brave self.
