Spiders usually evoke an “Eek!” response especially when they make a surprise visit. Or you inadvertently walk into one of their webs. But as with all of nature, they also have much to teach us if we take time to observe. Click here to find out what spider had to share at my place yesterday.

Fun Fact: Did you know that all spiders can make silk but not all spin webs? They use the silk for a variety of purposes including protecting their young (spiderlings), catching prey and for shelter. Male spiders deposit their sperm into the silk and retrieve it later when they find a willing mate.

AUTUMN – The Season of Letting Go

AutumnThis week’s pick from A Clear Place Wisdom Cards is AUTUMN. Fall is all about releasing and letting go. Like the trees shedding their leaves to allow for new growth, it’s a great time to let go of all that stuff and clear your clutter. The energy of spider reigns now and teaches us to live simply. To be strong and focused but also willing to let go of what was in order to build anew. Git rid of what no longer serves you. Autumn honors the cycle of adulthood and being responsible caretakers of the land and our loved ones. In your home, use images of sunset, flowing water or fall scenes like this one. Diffuse essential oils of cinnamon, orange, clove and nutmeg. All of these blend well or use them individually.

The Season of Autumn corresponds to the element of Water, the direction of the West and the time of sunset.

About this photo: I encountered this brilliant maple tree on a walk in NW Portland. The street below was blanketed in gold but there were plenty more leaves to follow in the weeks ahead.
