“A sun-drenched sky
on windy autumn day;
out across open fields
passing clouds make shadow play.
Silent beauty in multi-hues
but ominous in a sense;
for though today be delightful
darkness soon gains precedence.
Ray, Psychology of Seasons

Patheos-Pagan: The 5 Real Reasons Your Spells Didn’t Work
NOVEMBER 20, 2022 BY JOHN BECKETT
Last week I came across an Instagram post from someone trying to explain “why your manifesting isn’t working.” Now, the word “manifesting” is a red flag for me. It usually indicates someone has bought into the Law of Attraction and believe that “intention is everything.”

TIME TO CHANGE?
“When coasting in our comfort zones, we don’t grow. We continue to do more of the same…. Maintaining a comfort zone can, paradoxically, lead to discomfort in the long run. If by being comfortable we avoid important life issues, internal tension accumulates…. Eventually, as both internal and external pressures for change persist, the ‘comfort zone’ ceases to serve us.”
— Eric Allenbaugh
It takes effort to change. What do you most want to change in your life? Make a list of what you can do to start the process. Try journaling, perhaps. Read books. Take a course. Find a mentor. Seek out support.
How will you commit time to make it happen? When are you going to start? Your life is passing quickly!
“Be not afraid of changing slowly; be afraid only of standing still.”
— Chinese Proverb

Daily Tarot: Temperance
A little emotional distance is called for to keep things peaceful and working smoothly. You may be very sentimental or attached to certain issues or other people’s opinions of you but don’t let this rule how the day goes. Don’t let anyone casually or ignorantly hurt your feelings. They may not even know what they’re doing. Stay functional and keep your emotional guards up
