October Quotes

“The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I’ll put a trinket on.”

  • Emily Dickinson, Nature 27 – Autumn

EarthSky News: Auriga The Charioteer And Bright Capella On October Evenings

Auriga the Charioteer is a popular constellation for Northern Hemisphere observers in autumn, because its flashing star advertises its presence. Capella, the brightest star in Auriga, flashes red, blue and green when it’s close to the horizon and seen through a thick layer of Earth’s atmosphere. Close to Capella are a pair of stars known as The Kids, baby goats that the Charioteer carries. Auriga houses three star clusters, easy targets to hunt down with binoculars.

Inner Journey:


“People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.”
— Joseph F. Newton

We experience soul when we really connect with life — when we stop and consciously experience what is happening.

We lose soul with:
•resistance – to anyone or anything
•superficiality – we avoid depth of experience
•control – we try to control the relationship
•selfishness – we remain self-centered.

Each of these attitudes fosters separation rather than connection. Once again, soul lives in relating.

Take time to become aware of, and perhaps journal on how you relate to other people and things in your life.

“We have to decide for ourselves what’s nourishing to our souls, and do those things over others.”
— Thomas Moore

Daily Wisdom
October 22, 2021

“In this broad earth of ours,
Amid the measureless grossness and the slag,
Enclosed and safe within its central heart,
Nestles the seed perfection.

-Walt Whitman (1819-1892)

There is an underlying perfection to this world. Sometimes we can’t see it with all the problems and pollution, but it is there anyway. When we hold that truth in our consciousness, and focus on that perfection, we can bring it into the light. Think peace.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Death

A change has been in the air for some time and today the actual transformation could happen. There’s nothing to be afraid of, or to dread, or to fear losing. Room is being made and energy is being set aside for something new and better for you. It could be something small or something large, but whatever it is will be meaningful and affect your daily life
