“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,
Welcome to September. It’s such a lovely heart-centered month. A month for simplifying. For focusing on what matters. For fresh starts and timely endings.
Cards for the Month:
I’ve chosen two cards for September for you: one from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck, and one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in the conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.
Here is what I have received from each card:
“Anyone can plot a course with a map or compass; but without a sense of who you are, you will never know if you’re already home.”
~ Shannon L. Alder
September helps us to honour our inner voice and intuitive wisdom, allowing us to truly begin to know our heart’s calling. A sense of inner peace comes to us as we finally start to own our truth, and to live from that place. This month we see things from a higher perspective. Old relationships, trials, failures and obstacles lose their sting, and we see how many of these things have helped us to become who we are and to develop a depth and wisdom we would not otherwise have had. We can put down the guilt or resentment.
We start to see the learnings instead of just the pain.
Our energy can flow again after all of that stuckness.
We can also call on this inner wisdom to illuminate areas of our life that are out of harmony for us, so that we can take action to bring them back into alignment with our core values, or set them free.
It’s a liberating and peaceful month, and yet it will also be one of strong personal growth and transformation. Take some quiet time just for you this month. It will be worth it.
“Flexibility is the greatest strength.” ~ Steven Redhead
The second card I’ve chosen is Flexible. This card reminds us to put our dreams front and centre, even if it means that we need to get creative about how we do that.
This month we need balance, but it serves us to be able to remain flexible in our attitudes and actions. All kinds of unexpected directions and opportunities will present themselves, and if we remain rigidly locked into a plan we may miss the best thing that could have happened to us in ages.
You’re encouraged to listen to your body. If you’re exhausted, rest. If you are on fire with an idea, then burn the midnight oil.
Let go of your need to be right. Instead, embrace an attitude of curiosity and a willingness to learn new things.
Don’t get bogged down in how something is supposed to look or behave. Let go of cherished outcomes and keep an open mind instead.
This month can give you the breakthrough you need, if you are open to it!
Best crystals this month?
Opal is a stone that links heart and mind – wonderful for being able to tune in to our own inner wisdom. It helps us to see, understand and truly know ourselves, and is uplifting and kind in its energies. It also promotes creativity and inspiration.
Any kind of opal or opalite will do. Go with what you are drawn to.
Golden Healer Quartz is quartz crystal with the inclusion of iron oxide within or on the outside of the crystal, giving it aspects of colour that look pale lemon, golden or even burnt orange. Golden Healer is a master healing stone that restores your natural energy and vibration after periods of lower vibration, negativity, illness or stuckness. It promotes positive communication, and positive thoughts towards self and others.
Essential oils to support your journey?
Try this sublime diffuser blend of 6 drops of Geranium, 4 drops of Coriander, 2 drops of Pettigrain and 2 drops of Sandalwood. This fragrance is fresh and light, and promotes feelings of happiness and wellbeing. My fairy friend Sokli calls this her Happy Days! blend.
You could also use any of these oils on their own. You can find the oils here.

September will rocket some of you ahead so far that you’ll look back and wonder how so much change could have happened in just one month. For others, the change will be more subtle, but it will still be a month of transformation.
Embrace it! And remember to keep a little downtime for rest, dreams and planning.
Sending all my love to you, Nicole ♥ xx
