“In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil.
And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb color effects as from August to November.”
- Rose G. Kingsley, The Autumn Garden, 1905

Spirit Library: Clarity Emerges from the Heart (a message from Kate Spreckley)
As we continue to integrate the lessons and wisdom we have gained from the past, we stand at a significant point in our journey where we must make a choice. Do we continue to recreate the past or do we make a different choice and embark on a path that transforms both ourselves and the world?

Daily Magick Snippets: Altar Tools
The wand is the tool of invocation and is used to direct energy. It is also used to draw magic symbols on the ground or in the air or to stir the cauldron. Traditional wood for wands is willow, elder, oak, apple, hazel etc. These can be bought, however using a small tree limb (the length between the crook of your arm and forefinger) works just as well. Try not to break one off a living tree, look for one that has fallen on the ground.
It is associated with Air.

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF
“In the final analysis, we count for something only because of the essential we embody, and if we do not embody that, life is wasted.”
— C.G. Jung
Where are you not being true to yourself?
All blocks arise when we’re not being authentic, when we’re not being true to ourselves. We know we’re not being authentic when we feel discomfort of any kind.
When our thoughts, feelings and actions align with our essence, we express the qualities of soul. Always trust that your soul knows what’s best for you.
Believe in yourself and act on your ideas. Give yourself permission to do what you want with your life. Take the initiative to set meaningful goals for yourself and achieve them. Begin to tell yourself why you CAN have what you want!
“A true knowledge of ourselves is knowledge of our power.”
— Mark Rutherford

“Men are disposed to live honestly, if the means of doing so are open to them.”
-Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
It is our nature to be honest. Look at how everything else in the world expresses itself. We don’t expect antelope behavior from a lion, that would be silly. And yet many times we go around being untrue to ourselves. We are strong, beautiful, creative – so let’s not be afraid to show it!

Daily Tarot: The Sun
Little or nothing will slow you down or be daunting to you today. You have so much inner strength, and physical strength, too, that people will have trouble keeping up with you. Do something special today, or perhaps excel at something significant and challenging that will be easily within your grasp. You may find out later that you were dazzling and that you inspired several people to more energetically pursue their passions
