Spirit Library: September 2021 Ascension Energies – Joyful Heart (Jamye Price)

For September, as usual, Areon builds on the mental and emotional Reflection that life is echoing out so that what arises from within your Bold Heart is waves of creative love. The energies are Joyful Heart, but the main focus is the mind in order to bridge your heart’s joy into this world.

September Birthstone : Blue Sapphire
Birthstone Color: Deep Blue
The striking deep blue of a quality sapphire is reminiscent of a cloudless night sky. Ancient civilizations believed that the world was set upon an enormous sapphire, which painted the sky blue with its reflection. This legend, as well as the belief that the ten commandments were inscribed upon tablets made of sapphire, gives September’s birthstone a royal place among gemstones.
Aster flowers one of the September birth flowers are symbols of Love, Afterthought, Faith, Wisdom, Valor, and Light.
The genus Aster includes some 600 species of widely distributed flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. Aster comes from Greek word for “star”, and refers to the shape of the flower head. Many of the species are popular garden plants because of their showy flower heads.
Believed in ancient times that burning the leaves of the aster flower drove away serpents. Also to symbolize afterthought, aster’s were laid on the graves of soldiers.
Morning glory flowers another September birth flower bring vibrance and awareness in thought for September births.
As its name implies, morning glory flowers, which are saucer-shaped, open at morning time, allowing them to be pollinated by hummingbirds, butterfly’s, bees and other daytime insects and birds. The flower lasts for a single morning and dies in the afternoon. New flowers bloom each day. The flower color usually starts to fade a couple of hours before the petals start showing visible curling. They are partial to full sun throughout the day.

The northern sky is like a large celestial clock, with Polaris at its center. In other words, the entire northern sky wheels in a great circle throughout the night (although it’s wheeling in a counter-clockwise direction). But the northern star Polaris stays still (or nearly so).

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
— Oliver Wendell Holmes
We are all on a life-long journey. It is a search for who we are and why we are here. It is a journey that expands our consciousness.
There is an urge within each of us to move forward in life. It is an urge to become more whole, to find more meaning, and eventually to help others. It is human nature to strive for a sense of well-being.
We all go through the same growth cycles, though our experiences may appear entirely different. By understanding the process of personal and spiritual growth, we can work more effectively with the process, instead of fighting and resisting it.
“We can learn to be the catalysts for our own change.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

“Silence is one of the great arts of conversation.”
There are times when we feel those “awkward pauses,” when we want to fill up the empty space with words. But then there are those beautiful times when we are comfortable just sitting and being with another person, when silence adds to our experience. In Japanese watercolors, it is said that the strokes that are painted are just as important as the spaces that are left blank. The overall work is simple, elegant, and meaningful.

Daily Tarot: Justice
You may be dealing with people who feel inferior or weaker than you, so take care to not run over anyone. Equally, they do not have to serve as an excuse for you to go slower or do less than you know is necessary. Be firm but not too firm, determined but not too determined. Get a lot of good work done
