“the air is different today
the wind sings with a new tone
sighing of changes
the harvest gathered
a flower, a nut
some mead, and bread
a candle and a prayer
returning the fruits
to the grove
- Rhawk, Alban Elfed

Spirituality & Health: Do a Sacred Home Cleanse Using Vibrational Energy Clearing
by Shannon Kaiser
Just like our physical bodies, our homes can become cluttered with energy that doesn’t serve us.

EarthSky News: Gamma Cephei, The Future North Star
Gamma Cephei, also called Errai, is a moderately bright 3rd-magnitude star in the northern constellation Cepheus the King. Cepheus looks like a child’s depiction of a house, with Gamma Cephei marking the peak of the roof. This fascinating star has played a major role in our understanding of exoplanets, especially in multiple star systems. Interestingly, by 4,000 CE, Gamma Cephei will move into position – due to the Earth’s axial precession – to become our North Star.
Patheos-Pagan: The Pew Doors of St. Cuthbert’s – A Cautionary Tale for Us All

DO YOU GIVE TO GET?
“I have sensed a growing discontent amongst many who are on their spiritual path. A common theme appears to be — ‘I have been serving God for so long and have given up so much and it has been such a struggle — when am I going to get my reward?’”
— Wendy Munroe
It’s interesting to become aware of how we participate in the dynamic exchange of giving and receiving. When we give, do we do so whole-heartedly? Or do we do so with the ulterior motive of wanting something in return?
It’s not wise to be always looking for a deal. The universe never short-changes us. We can afford to be generous. When something of value is given, something of value must be returned.
“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
— Mother Teresa

“Change is the watchword of progression. When we rite of well-worn ways, we seek for new. This restless craving in the souls of men spurs them to climb, and to seek the mountain view.”
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Being open means being open to change. Change shakes up the old and moves life forward. Change helps to broaden our horizons and gives us a chance to experience new things.

Daily Tarot: The Lovers
Indecision is not necessarily a bad thing, but taken to extremes it can make you pessimistic and defeatist. Take the time you need to make the choices you need but don’t get bogged down and grind to a halt. Take yourself in hand and refuse to feel helpless in the face of a challenging (or tempting) situation. Refuse to be rushed by anyone, too.
