“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: Mercury Retrograde
Today we enter into the third and final Mercury Retrograde season of the year. Over the next three weeks, with Mercury in the sign of Libra, we have the opportunity to reset how we habitually think and communicate. Despite the generally negative response to Mercury Retrograde it is a time that is well worth consciously engaging with.

Have you ever been homesick for a place that no longer exists? A place your mind wanders to as a safe haven?
Maybe it’s not a place, but a person.
When life gets crazy and we are running a marathon on the hamster wheel called life, I occasionally find myself pulled into a place just like that. A place that only exists in my head, inside my memories, and inside my heart.

EarthSky News: Moon In Gemini Before Dawn September 29 And 30
Last quarter moon in Gemini
On the mornings of September 29 and 30, 2021, you can see the moon near the two brightest stars of the constellation Gemini the Twins. These stars are Castor and Pollux. The moon will reach its last quarter phase in front of Gemini on September 29 at 01:57 UTC. By clocks in North America, that translates to the evening of September 28. A last quarter moon is a waning moon. So the September 28-29 moon will look half-illuminated, like half a pie. And the next night’s moon will look slimmer, like a fat crescent

VALUING ALL WORK
“We honor life when we work. The type of work is not important: the fact of work is. All work feeds the soul if it is honest and done to the best of our abilities and if it brings joy to others.”
— Matthew Fox
What value do we unconsciously (or consciously) place on different kinds of work? How do we rank the status of different jobs? How much more do we value the big- paying jobs over others?
Just as we need to honour ourselves for doing what needs to be done, we can equally honour all others who look after life through their efforts, no matter what they may be. We can release judgment that assigns more importance to some occupations than others.
“Now in order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed: They must be fit for it: they must not do too much of it: and they must have a sense of success in it — not a doubtful sense, such as needs some testimony of others for its confirmation, but a sure sense, or rather knowledge, that so much work has been done well, and fruitfully done, whatever the world may say or think about it.”
— John Ruskin

“Entrepreneurs average 3.8 failures before final success. What sets the successful ones apart is their amazing persistence. There are a lot of people out there with good and marketable ideas, but pure entrepreneurial types almost never accept defeat.”
-Lisa M. Amos
Perseverance is stick-to-it-iveness! It’s having that vision that success is not only possible, it is inevitable. It’s having the fortitude to navigate the bumps in the road, and not let those bumps become road blocks

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess
There may be moment or two when you feel responsible for everything in the world and like it’s your duty to take care of everyone. Relax, let this wash over you, and let it go. It’s not a burden so much as a demonstration of how connected you are to the people and things in your own life, and how much you care. That’s a good thing.
