Moon near Jupiter October 7 and 8
The brightest planet currently in the evening sky – Jupiter – competes with the light of a nearly full moon on the evenings of October 7 and 8, 2022. Jupiter just had its closest opposition in 70 years on September 26, when it shined at magnitude -2.9. Now, less than two weeks later, it shines just as bright. But the waxing gibbous moon will be brighter as it washes out nearly all the stars around the pair.

RAISING YOUR SIGHTS
“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
— Albert Einstein

Today’s Recipe: Kim’s Buttermilk Spice Cake
This spice cake was inspired by a recipe from one of my mom’s old cookbooks. It was my great-grandpa’s favorite cake, and I used to make it for him all the time. It’s a simple cake that’s not too sweet, and has a rather strong spice flavor. Err on the side of underbaking the cake rather than overbaking, or it’ll be dry.

“It’s exhilarating to be alive in a time of awakening consciousness; it can also be confusing, disorienting, and painful.”
Our spiritual pursuits open up our awareness to everything – and sometimes that can be difficult when emotions come to the surface, and stress bubbles up and away. When we know that this is all temporary, and a part of the process, we can observe its happening without allowing it to get us caught up in the drama of it all. We can focus on the big picture – we can see what is truly important, truly real. It is exhilarating, and liberating!

Daily Tarot: Temperance
Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.
