“Happy we who can bask in this warm September sun, which illumines all creatures, as well when they rest as when they toil,
not without a feeling of gratitude; whose life is as blameless, how blameworthy soever it may be, on the Lord’s Mona-day as
on his Suna-day.”
Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862

9/18 ~ Mercury Rx (thinking) ~oppose~ Jupiter (learning): (2 of 3: 9/2 ~ 9/18 ~ 10/12)
Any opposition requires us to work with two distinct energies and get them to work together for the good of all involved. It is also a MidPoint which allows you that 180* view from the other side of your starting point (roughly 6-months ago).

How can plant sacred medicine bring us back to a place of rootedness?
In Robin Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass, we learn that the word for plants in many Native American languages translates to “those who take care of us.” Could you imagine a world without plants? I can’t—they feed us, provide material for everyday objects, and literally produce the very air that we breathe.

YOU KNOW THE WAY
“Woe to the man whose heart has not learned while young to hope, to love … and to put its trust in life.”
— Joseph Conrad
How deeply do you trust your own guidance?
Always trust that you know what’s best for you. To move forward in your life, gather information from the “experts,” consider how their advice relates to your situation and then act only on what feels right for you. You are the only expert for your own life.
“I trust so much in the power of the heart and the soul; I know that the answer to what we need to do next is in our own hearts. All we have to do is listen, then take that one step further and trust what we hear. Wewill be taught what we need to learn.”
— Melody Beattie
“I never know what the next lesson is going to be, because we’re not supposed to know; we’re supposed to trust ourselves to discover it.”
— Melody Beattie

Manifesting Reminders for Masters:
Reminder #1—When dreaming, know that anything can happen. In that magical state, the only price to be paid is with imagination. Having “it all” costs the same as having nothing at all.
Reminder #2—You’re now dreaming.

Today’s Recipe: German Plum Rolls (Zwetschgenschnecken)
In Germany, cakes made with plum are very popular. This variation can be made as either a whole cake or as individual ‘tarts.’ I call them ‘rolls’ due to their appearance. They are very delicious on a Sunday fall afternoon with a hot cup of tea! They’re best when still warm and served with whipped cream!

“We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.”
Have you ever been to Disneyworld? It’s a beautiful place – colorful, clean, fun, and full of surprises! And when we’re there, we know that it is all illusion – that it is all there for our enjoyment. We experience the rides as entertainment, even the scary roller-coasters. Yet when we’re in our own “world” we tend to take things so seriously. What would happen if we approached life as our own amusement park? Knowing that one ride takes us for a spin and another shakes us up and another lets us sit back and relax? What a concept! Then we could stop looking for reality all around us and start finding it inside of us.

Daily Tarot: Temperance
Instinct and impulsive action will cause more trouble than they can solve today, so spend more time reasoning things out and being careful about what you say and do. Asking questions is a good idea. It will get you information you need, and show how thorough, bright, and capable you are. It might take a bit longer, but it will save time and effort in the end.
