The Light is gathering and manifesting upon the Earth bringing forth a rebalancing within of all creation.

Our belief in the illusion of separation has caused our imbalances and as we continue to awaken and heal, we bring ourselves back into alignment with all of creation

Today’s DIY: Crafting A Calendula and Rose Salve From Scratch
“Perhaps the most famous icon of the holiday is the jack-o-lantern. Various authorities attribute it to either Scottish or Irish origin. However, it seems clear that it was used as a lantern by people who traveled the road this night, the scary face to frighten away spirits or faeries who might otherwise lead one astray. Set on porches and in windows, they cast the same spell of protection over the household. (The American pumpkin seems to have forever superseded the European gourd as the jack-o-lantern of choice.) Bobbing for apples may well represent the remnants of a Pagan ‘baptism’ rite called a ‘seining’, according to some writers. The water-filled tub is a latter-day Cauldron of Regeneration, into which the novice’s head is immersed. The fact that the participant in this folk game was usually blindfolded with hands tied behind the back also puts one in mind of a traditional Craft initiation ceremony.”
- Mike Nichols, All Hallow’s Eve

EarthSky News: Deneb Kaitos Marks The Tail Of Cetus
Deneb Kaitos is the brightest star in the constellation Cetus the Whale (or Sea-Monster). In star names, the word deneb usually means tail. And so it is with this star. It marks the tail of Cetus. Deneb Kaitos is also known by two alternate names, Beta Ceti and Diphda. It shines at magnitude 2, making it about as bright as Polaris the North Star. Neither Polaris nor Deneb Kaitos shines brightly enough to be super noticeable. But both are well within the limit of visibility to the unaided eye. Based on parallax measurements, Deneb Kaitos lies at an estimated distance of 96 light-years from Earth.

PERCEPTION DEFINES OUR REALITY
“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.”
— Henri Bergson
Our entire universe is energy — vibrating waves of pure potential. The electromagnetic vibrations of our consciousness interact with the energetic potential that exists everywhere as the life force to ‘collapse’ the waves and create matter. So the patterns of our minds create the form of our world.
By simply observing a form, we influence it. We in turn are influenced by others. This challenges us to be more aware of the quality of our being and the vibrations we transmit.
“There is no reality in the absence of observation.”
— The Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

“Our happiness or unhappiness depends as much on our temperaments as on our luck.”
-La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)
Contentment is a choice. We have the choice in how we perceive our situations. We have the choice in how we react, and respond, to any circumstance. Circumstances change, and so can our temperament. Why not choose to look on the bright side? Let’s try it, and see how it feels. Shift.

Daily Tarot: The Pope
People may look to you to get some enthusiasm back into their lives. If sagging a little in spirit yourself, you can still inspire others. This can cheer you up, too, so don’t underestimate a small glimmer of joy in something that you genuinely love. No one has to agree with you. They only have to allow you to do what feels best to you – and you to them.
