“The gilding of the Indian summer mellowed the pastures far and wide.
The russet woods stood ripe to be stripped, but were yet full of leaf.
The purple of heath-bloom, faded but not withered, tinged the hills…
Fieldhead gardens bore the seal of gentle decay; … its time of
flowers and even of fruit was over.”
- Charlotte Brontë

Most folks know Samhain as Halloween, but for many modern Pagans, Samhain is considered a Sabbat to honor the ancestors who came before us, marking the dark time of the year.

Fall is one of my favourite seasons.
The air gets cooler, holiday decorations make their rounds, and it’s the beginning of festive parties and get-togethers with family and friends. If you’re anything like me, your Halloween decorations are out the day it’s officially autumn. You’ve made plans to visit the pumpkin patch, and the excitement of delicious meals with those we love (or like) is stirring.

Pagan Playlist: Pentangle – Willy O Winsbury (Set Of Six ITV, 27.06.1972)
“Life does not happen to us, it happens from us.”
— Mike Wickett
Are you easily overwhelmed? If so, answer this question in your journal:
While growing up, what did you experience too much of?
Experiencing too much of something leads to feelings of overwhelm. When we’re young, overwhelm can lead us to believe that we are not capable or that we are not good enough. These are power issues.
Awareness of when we are feeling overwhelmed can help us go inside, claim our power and change our experience of any situation.
“When we know that the cause of something is in ourselves, and that we (ourselves) are one of the few things in the universe that we have the right and ability to change, we begin to get a sense of the choices we really do have, an inkling of the power we have, a feeling of being in charge… of our lives, of our future, of our dreams.”
— John-Roger and Peter McWilliams
“Be thine own palace, or the world’s thy jail.”
— John Donne

“Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.”
-Aldous Huxley (1894-1963)
If we substitute the word “money” for “happiness” in this quote it is easy to understand. Money is the by-product of industry and creativity. Money doesn’t come to us by wishing for it, but by working for it. Happiness is also the result of our efforts and activities. It comes to us through our spiritual practices, our relationships, and our work.

Daily Tarot: The Devil
Tastes, smells, and all things tactile may preoccupy you today and distract you from thinking clearly about whatever is in front of you. It could be hard to refrain from unconscious flirting or making comments that are easily taken the wrong way. Be aware of your actions and do what you can to not offend nor attract people whom you’d rather avoid.
