“When the goldenrod is yellow,
And leaves are turning brown –
Reluctantly the summer goes
In a cloud of thistledown.
When squirrels are harvesting
And birds in flight appear –
By these autumn signs we know
September days are here.”
- Beverly Ashour, September

Spirit Library: Explore What is Uncharted Within (a message from Kate Spreckley)
As we head towards next week’s Equinox on the 21st we are preparing for another shift in the spiraling journey of our healing and growth. What surfaces now and over the coming week is what needs to be cleared in preparation for the Equinox. This is a powerful opportunity where we get to transform the old in preparation for something new. As such, the incoming energies are moving into our subconscious mind and bringing to the surface whatever is blocking our hearts, limiting our creativity, and hindering our intuitive abilities

Connecting into nature is one of the ways that we deeply step outside of our day-to-day lives and remind ourselves of the powerful and beautiful bigger cycles of life.
Treehugger: How Tails Help These Geckos Crash-Land on Trees Without Falling
As the Asian flat-tailed house gecko glides across the rainforest from one tree to the next, it makes far from a gymnast’s perfect landing.
EarthSky News: Alpha Cephei, A Fast-Spinning Star
Alderamin, also known as Alpha Cephei, is the brightest star in the constellation Cepheus the King. Shining at about a visual magnitude of 2.5, it’s the only bright star in Cepheus, a faint pattern of stars that traces out the shape of a house. Astronomers are intrigued by Alderamin because it spins at such a rapid rate — unlike our almost spherically-shaped sun, Alderamin has been distorted into an oblate form, like a partly deflated beach ball.
Patheos-Pagan: Autumn Equinox: The Triumph of the Dark

BE WILLING TO REPEAT
“Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.”
— Christina Baldwin
Sometimes we repeat the Inner Journey messages in the series. Please guard against saying, “I’ve seen this one — I don’t need to read it again.”
The truth is: we are always changing. Who you are now is different from who you were when you read the message the first time. The circumstances of your life have changed as well. As a result, you may be open to new perspectives this time around.
Our ego is prone to think it knows it all, but life always offers us fresh and new experiences.
“It all depends on how we look at things and not on how they are in themselves.”
— C.G. Jung
A Note from the Universe
The best way to forgive is not to blame.
Today’s Recipe: Dutch Oven Macaroni and Cheese
This Dutch oven mac and cheese is a staple in my home. I sometimes add burger meat or bacon to it to liven it up but it’s delicious enough on its own! Regularly served as the main course with just a veggie side, as it can be a bit heavy if you’re a mac and cheese lover who can’t resist seconds (like me).

“We seldom stop to think how many people’s lives are entwined with our own. It is a form of selfishness to imagine that every individual can operate on his own or can pull out of the general stream and not be missed.”
-Ivy Baker Priest
This whole world functions in such a way that we need to rely on each other. We can’t go through this life alone – we’re all connected. We each have something to contribute to the big picture. It’s important to do our part, to be reliable and to know that we can rely on those around us.

Daily Tarot: Temperance
Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.
