“The sweet calm sunshine of October, now
Warms the low spot; upon its grassy mold
The purple oak-leaf falls; the birchen bough
drops its bright spoil like arrow-heads of gold.”
William Cullen Bryant

Spirit Library: Over It!
What was is no longer – including what was just days or hours ago. In a sense, you are on one of those carnival rides that turn you upside down, sideways, and up and down. And just as is true when you are physically on those rides, your inner being is unsettled to the point of becoming ill.

EarthSky News: Meet Aquarius the Water Bearer and its stars
Lying on our sky’s dome between the constellations Capricornus and Pisces, Aquarius the Water Bearer is tricky to spot. There aren’t many bright stars in this constellation, and you’ll need a dark sky to get a good look of it. It’s one of the 12 constellations of the zodiac, which means the sun, moon and planets occasionally pass within its boundaries.
Patheos-Pagan: Allow Yourself to Wane Like the Moon
OCTOBER 10, 2022 BY IRISANYA MOON
The cycles of the moon inspire me.
I don’t always follow the energy. My body is sometimes active when things are darkening and sometimes exhausted when the light grows. (And sometimes my body is both at the same time. Which is unfortunate for the things I’ve promised to do.

“As long as you don’t forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind.”
— Isabelle Holland
We cannot avoid daily resentment and thoughts of guilt. They are a part of human nature. What we can do is release their grip on us. We can forgive others and ourselves daily.
Forgiveness requires nothing in return. There are no conditions. It gets rid of old baggage and clears up unfinished business. It leads us to a life of authenticity, lightness and directness. Forgiveness is the highest form of letting go of resentment and ego.
True forgiveness is more than an apology, understanding and acceptance. There is an element of recreating and re-imagining. There is a need to envision ourselves as more loving, interdependent, courageous and compassionate. Forgiveness requires honouring the sacred journey of learning about life – our life and others’.
“Whatever we have done, we can always make amends for it without ever looking back in guilt or sorrow.”
— Eknath Easwaran
A Note from the Universe
It’s always better to give too much, pay too much, and love too much, than not enough.

“We’re all of us sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life!”
-Tennessee Williams, Orpheus Descending
There comes a time when we realize that there’s no escaping it, we have to live with ourselves! How do we treat ourselves? Are we kind and loving, do we show appreciation and forgiveness? Too often we’re our own worst critics! We’re hard on ourselves when we really need a break once in awhile. Let’s work on being the kind of person whom we want to be with – and spend some time being ourselves, by ourselves.

Daily Tarot: The Fool
The day may be full of confusion but you don’t have to go through it naively and unaware of what’s happening around you. It’s not a good day to flirt with taking silly risks, some of which might turn out to be semi-dangerous or costly. You may be too hyper to want to play it safe, but at least make an effort to not be naïve or irresponsible.
