Admit pale sun though cobwebs left from autumn;

“The soul that is attached to anything, however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of divine union.

— Saint John of the Cross
“Attachment to spiritual things is… just as much an attachment as inordinate love of anything else.”

Is this so true? There is so much self-deprecation going on out there! Why do we fear our brilliance? Why do we hide our lights? We need to have the courage to shine! And we need to en-courage each other to bring it on – to share our gifts with the world, and with each other!
Daily Tarot: Death
There’s a sense of security in what is old, and with something new coming into your life it’s natural to be a bit afraid. Give this new situation a chance and give yourself time to get comfortable with the new conditions. It could be as simple as getting your hair cut or changing your glasses frames, but it could be much bigger than that.
