Love to you and yours at this time of Samhain, when the ancestors are a little closer than usual. Some traditions say the veil between the worlds in thinest at this time of year. Take time to consider the gifts your ancestors have given you, are these gifts dormant or being fully utilised? Or is it time to stop propagating an ancestral pattern that does not serve you or your future generations. Go deep with these questions, they are worth exploring. Love Sarah-Jayne and Carol x
Its new moon this evening. The last 2 months (at least) seem to have been about really letting go of what no longer serves us, so we can get clear and focus in on what our priorites are right now, in these times. I have read alot today about Phoenix energy being strong at the moment, the possibility of rising out of the ash from that which has been burnt and let go of, and flying onward whilst shining brightly. I really resonate with this image. Also Autumn is Metal Element season....letting go, decluttering and shining life up a little. So with this new Autumn moon....time to rise and shine! Love Sarah-Jayne 🔥💎
Morning journeyers, I took this picture last night as the lowering sun caught my neighbours tree, the colours blew my mind and filled my heart.
So we have arrived in Autumn, the season of the Metal element and its associated emotion of grief. For me this is a time of year when I remember past losses and feel them again in my body, particularly in my chest (lungs are linked to Metal element) and I am reminded to let go a bit more and to carry on healing. The stunning Autumn leaves remind me that there is beauty in letting go while still holding on to the richness of memories and to use what we have learnt to enrich the next part of our lives.
Have a gorgeous day, with much love Carol <3

One of the gifts of Autumn and the Metal element is the power it has for cleansing, decluttering and getting rid of rubbish, it almost feels like a mini Spring clean; with its link to the large intestine and lungs it gives us the opportunity to create more space in our lives.
Doing this can be an amazingly transformational experience as we traul though old experiences, photos, clothes, habits and beliefs and review if they really reflect who we are anymore...then if they don't, we have the opportunity to let it go and create space for something new and more 'you'.
What an amazing gift this is to keep on recreating our lives simply by reviewing it and making a choice. Of course we often hold on to things because we fear how life may be without something. My experience of letting go is that the more we do it the easier it is and even clearing out one cluttered drawer brings that expansive, creative feeling that makes you want more.
....so as we are in the early weeks of Autumn make the most of gorgeous Metal medicine and do some clearing out...and let us know how you get on!

Morning journeyers, after the 'fruition' challenge last week we are all set to really enjoy the wonderful gifts of Autumn and the Metal element.
The Metal element has so many wonderful qualities and one is that of detail and precision that adds quality and value to everything we do. In nature, the mineral world with its beautiful chemical structures, illustrates how tiny details make all the difference to an outcome. This quality of precision helps us highlight what is important and what isn't so we can keep refining our choices and follow a path that feels right to us. The Autumn is a great time to work on the detail and put structures into place that support what you are doing; imagine it being a bit like the metal stakes that hold the tension for a tent, stopping the canvas flapping around and being of no use what so ever. These stakes could include list making, timetabling and planning the calendar ahead.
So how can you ride the wave of Autumn and stake down some of your projects/plans/passions to make them more effective this season? Share your thoughts in the comments, lots of love Carol xxx
It's full Moon early on Sunday morning (about 5.30am here in the U.K.). The Moon will appear bigger than usual as it is at it's closest point to Earth. This is the falling leaf moon, the hunter's or Oak moon depending which calendar you work with. In the U.K Autumn has kicked in..the winds are up and the rain is back. Spending more time inside our houses, alongside the dipping light of the sun shows us the dusty corners, the accumulated 'stuff'. This moon is an action moon in firey Aries. Time to hunt down any blocks, or accumulations and get clean and clear. Autumn is the season of the Metal element...of Lung and Large Intestine meridians. It's time to let go of the old, get inspired by the new and clear the way ahead for the rest of 2016. What will you chuck? What will you polish and shine and focus on? If you can bare to be outside in the cooler air, go soak up some moonlight. Allow the reflected light to bring some clarity to you, and some power to your cleaning elbow, either actually or metaphorically. Moonlight blessings, Sarah-Jayne
**'Fruition' Seasonal Goddess Challenge starting on Monday 10th October**
Morning journeyers, we are really teetering on the edge of Autumn, back and forth, back and forth. I gathered in the last of the tomatoes yesterday from the polytunnel to finish ripening in the house as the damp is meaning they are starting to rot.
At our circle this week we talked about finding the magic ingredient that can really help us to finally bring our projects to fruition before the energy dips, for my tomatoes it will be being on a sunny, dry windowsill.
So what will it take to bring your project to fruition? The challenge next week is a opportunity to 'hothouse' a project you are teetering on the brink with and find the magic ingredient to bring it into fruition.
Join us in our lovely supportive group for some group magic (click link below); these challenges are always fantastic, fun, insightful and productive.
Have a great day love Carol xx https://www.facebook.com/groups/seasonalgoddessdaytoday/
Morning journeyers, this morning I can can feel the transition into Autumn and my body doesn't like it...can you feel that to-and-fro-ing feeling as we straddle Late Summer and Autumn? Transitions are always difficult, being neither here nor there unsettles us humans.
The lesson from the Earth element who holds all transitions with the Five Element map, is to be present, grounded and centred in each moment, connecting with 'the power of now'. So if you feel the uneasiness of the changing seasons take a moment to pause, plant your feet firmly on the ground and feel how it is right now... and then the next moment and so on.
Very soon the energy will fall into Autumn, the leaves will change and there will be clarity and beauty all around but just for today enjoy the transition...
Have a glorious day enjoying each moment, lots of love Carol xx
