Falling Into Fall

Change can be tough, to be sure. As I get a little older and wiser I see how much better it is to learn to roll with those changes that come your way. Accepting and embracing these shifts, no matter how unfamiliar or strange, is definitely the way to go. Intuitively, it also ties in with living fully in the moment and letting go of that which no longer serves us. It's the natural flow of nature and of life. So don't be that last stubborn last leaf on the tree this fall—live and let go.

Changes in the Weather

As many folks' favorite time of year comes into full swing, take the time to get out on some invigorating fall hikes to re-energize your soul. Walk in familiar spots to notice what is shifting and see how that makes you feel. Does it make you consider areas in your own life that could use a shakeup? Meditate on this one for a while and see what presents itself to you, whether in immediate visualizations or later that night in your dreams.

Autumnal Equinox

On the Autumnal Equinox (Mabon falls on the 22nd this September), make a point to take a sunset stroll, during a true magic time as the sun gives way to the moon. Muse on those areas you'd like to manifest some definitive changes in. When you return home to a mellow glass of your favorite wine and perhaps a cozy fire or pumpkin-scented candle, journal about these changes and make a short list of your immediate five you'd like to see happen sooner rather than later. When you finish the glass of wine, sign off on the list and close your eyes for a moment. Write down the date that immediately comes to you and so mote it be!

Women Who Howl at the Moon

We've come full circle—yay! Our official 12th episode features the multi-talented rapper, poet, artist, funeral director apprentice, and business woman, Puerto Wiccan. Please be sure to check out her interview and her music here. She's got a lot going on and is a treat to listen to. Did someone say treats? There are going to be some really fun Halloween promos around the corner for our podcast, so be sure to keep checking back on our Patreon and Facebook pages, too.
