While Autumn, nodding o’er the yellow plain,
Comes jovial on.”

Spirit Library: Be Drawn into Deeper Connection with Your Soul ( a message from Kate Spreckley)
We stand amid two realities, one that is destabilizing and dissolving and one that is slowly coming into form. Our purpose now is to release ourselves from the old and allow the forms and structures of our past to fall away and dissolve. As we do so the new emerges and its form begins to take shape. The longer we remain tied to the past the longer it takes for the new to materialize

Elephant Journal: The Gratitude Walk: Change your Mood in 15 Minutes.
There I was, slumped at my desk with a case of the Mondays.
My motivation was as locked down as New Zealand after that one COVID infection. Deadlines to meet, dishes to wash, small human to single parent: my mental state was equal parts fatigue and self-pity. You know the recipe.

EarthSky News: Cassiopeia The Queen Ascends In September
Any late summer evening, and throughout northern autumn, Cassiopeia the Queen can be found ascending in the northeast after nightfall. The shape of this constellation makes Cassiopeia’s stars very noticeable. Cassiopeia looks like the letter W (or M). Look for the Queen starting at nightfall every September. She’ll be higher up in the northeast as autumn unfolds. For those in the northern U.S. and Canada, Cassiopeia is circumpolar, above the horizon all night long.

J. ALLEN CROSS
“All you need to become a witch is to decide that you are one.” I find this statement at best, cringeworthy, and at worst, wildly disrespectful.

NOTHING NEEDS TO BE FIXED
“If you are ready to accept all which you find in yourself, you will be able to move through everything with deep sensitivity, awareness, love and understanding.”
— Gerd Ziegler
As we understand it, the spiritual journey is not about becoming perfect. It’s about acceptance, releasing judgment, and embracing everything in wholeness.
This is a great challenge for our personality. We’ve grown up comparing ourselves to others, always judging how we’re better and worse than those around us. And many of us are very good at finding fault with ourselves.
If we release judgment, then nothing needs to be fixed — including you. Explore inviting your soul to help you accept all that is and experience a whole new way of living.
“Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are.”
— Julia Cameron

“No legacy is so rich as honesty.”
- William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
Being called honest is a compliment. And it feels good to hear that someone appreciates that about us. It’s because we value honesty, it’s important to us. We like to be dealt with fairly and honestly. Honesty engenders trust, which builds strong relationships.

Daily Tarot: The Hermit
Right and wrong are important, yes, but today equally or more important could be doing what helps the most or alleviates the most pain or difficulty for someone or something. It could be as simple as feeding a stray cat, but it could be much more complicated, especially if it involves someone you care deeply for. Try to see things clearly and don’t overreact about anything
