November Quotes

“November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.”

  • Elizabeth Coatsworth

Inner Journey: LAUGH!

“We don’t laugh because we’re happy, we’re happy because we laugh.”
— William James

Why laugh?

Laughter nourishes the soul and triggers joy. It’s a natural stress reliever. It stimulates the immune system and increases oxygen, stamina and our breathing capacity. Medical literature is full of reasons to laugh for the health of it.

Don’t rely upon your funny friends, favorite sit-com or jokes to tickle your funny bone — just laugh for the joy of it!

“Laughter is like the human body wagging its tail.”
— Anne Wilson Schaef


A Note from the Universe

November Birthstone: Citrine

Birthstone Color: Yellow Gold

November’s gemstone, Citrine, is as warm as a Van Gogh painting of sunflowers. The name Citrine comes from an old French word, “citrin”, meaning lemon. One of the more rare forms of quartz, this gemstone ranges in color from the palest yellow to a dark amber named Madeira because of its resemblance to the red wine.



Daily Wisdom
November 1, 2021

“Our greatest illusion is reliance upon the security and permanence of material possessions. We must search for some other coin.”

-John Cudahy

What is secure anyway? And why do we so desperately rely upon it? Anything we can see or touch is impermanent. “Things” come and go. A new car depreciates the minute we drive it off the lot. A gemstone is only worth what someone will pay for it, and prices change all the time. The only permanence, the only unchangeable, is spirit. We can find our security in our faith

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Star

Despite any confusion of the day, you’ll be the calm and serene center of any activities. Your calmness will be contagious, too, so look forward to being surrounded by people who want to cooperate with you and be helpful before being directly asked. Take your calm state of mind into the evening, rest well, and see how much you can take with you into tomorrow.
