Color of the day: Maroon
Incense of the day: Cedar
Today, collect nine autumn leaves that have already fallen. (If there aren’t any fallen leaves in your area, you can use rose petals instead.) Light a stick of cedar incense on your altar. Take some deep breaths, center yourself, and call on the Great Goddess. Bring to mind a problem, issue, or block from which you would like to liberate yourself. From your heart, ask the Goddess to help you heal, unravel, and dissipate this issue in all directions of time. Hold the leaves between your hands as you direct the energy of the challenge into the leaves. Breathe fully as you imagine draining your body and aura of all related stress or anxiety and sending all your tension and worry into the leaves. Once this feels complete, set the leaves down and safely bathe one leaf at a time in the incense smoke. Extinguish the incense, then go outside and release the leaves to the wind, into a body of water, or near the base of a tree.
