October Quotes

“The harvest moon hangs round and high
It dodges clouds high in the sky,
The stars wink down their love and mirth
The Autumn season is giving birth.
Oh, it must be October
The leaves of red bright gold and brown,
To Mother Earth come tumbling down,
The breezy nights the ghostly sights,
The eerie spooky far off sounds
Are signs that it’s October.
The pumpkins yellow,. big and round
Are carried by costumed clumsy clowns
It’s Halloween – let’s celebrate.”

  • Pearl N. Sorrels, It Must be October

Spirituality & Health: A Full Moon Ritual for Release by Kalia Kelmenson

The full moon offers a potent time to create rituals.

The sky at night is a constant reminder of the rhythms of life. Each night offers subtle shifts: the stars are different, the moon waxes and wanes, meteor showers come and go. The night sky calls to us to observe and tune in, offering a chance to contemplate our own rhythms.

October Weather Lore

A warm October,
A cold February.

When leaves fall early,
Fall and Winter will be mild;
When leaves fall late,
Winter will be severe.

Squirrels gathering nuts in a flurry,
Will cause snow to gather in a hurry.

Much rain in October,
Much wind in December.

Full Moon in October without frost,
No frost ’till November’s Full Moon.



ThoughtCo: Blood Moon

In October, we see the Blood Moon travel through the sky. This moon is also called the Shedding Moon or the Falling Leaf Moon, depending on where you live. In many places, it’s the Hunter’s Moon, and it’s no coincidence that hunting season is in the late fall. Coming right before Samhain, this is a time when the nights are crisp and clear, and you can sense a change in the energy around you.

Inner Journey:


“If you expect the best, you will be the best. Learn to use one of the most powerful laws in this world; change your mental habits to belief instead of disbelief. Learn to expect, not to doubt. In so doing, you bring everything into the realm of possibility.”
— Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

Stop and be aware! Have you been thinking about what you want or what you don’t want?

It’s so easy to lock our minds onto problems rather than opening to receive solutions. But what we think is what we get. This is so important! If we continually focus on problems and negatives, that’s where we’ll stay.

“No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.”
— Helen Keller

Daily Wisdom
October 20, 2021

“Our earthly ball a peopled garden.”

-Goethe (1749-1832)

What grows springs from the earth. We are a part of it all! Like the plants, trees, flowers, and animal life – we are living and growing amongst it all. How are we contributing to the beauty of this garden? Whether it is with our work, or our art, or our kindness, we have opportunities daily to bring glory to this planet.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Star

You can make today memorable purely by the strength of your unfailing hope for all things to work out for the best. No matter how muddled the events of the day, how confused or how many mixed messages people give you, especially at work, your innate hopeful spirit will cut through most of the mist and give you good results. Look forward to many satisfying encounters, however little or much gets done.
