ThoughtCo: Gods and Goddesses of Death and the Underworld
Death is rarely so apparent than it as at Samhain. The skies have gone gray, the earth is brittle and cold, and the fields have been picked of the last crops. Winter looms on the horizon, and as the Wheel of the Year turns once more, the boundary between our world and the spirit world becomes fragile and thin.

Carved pumpkins are susceptible to rot, but there are ways to stave it off.
At this time of year, as the weather cools and the leaves start to fall, it is tempting to carve a pumpkin in preparation for Halloween. But carved pumpkins, unfortunately, do not last. They look good for up to five days, but then they start to soften, fall in on themselves, and turn black with mold.

PROBLEMS OR SOLUTIONS?
“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
A Note from the Universe
Two of the coolest things about being a time-space adventurer are learning that it’s impossible to lose something you’re still capable of giving, and, finding that you can never miss as long as you’re still aiming.
You know, as opposed to being an asteroid, a tree, or a cricket.

“It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them.”
A longing and wishing keeps us motivated to move forward. We can use this motivation to achieve great things, whether they are personal or global goals. We can use this motivation to learn and to grow and to become a more peaceful planet.

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess
There may be a 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.
