1. Transiting Neptune trines the U.S. Venus on the 20th, a beneficial combination that may produce more cooperation in international affairs and perhaps an historic treaty. This aspect is in effect all month and indicates a prosperous month for businesses that thrive on holiday shoppers...

As Autumn arrives, we fall back, starting our preparation for another spring. It is time to go deep, deep into the earth, deep into ourselves. Who are we? Who do we wish to have “spring ahead” in 6 months when the earth shifts yet again...
Editor's Note from Eileen Gonzalez: Irene Frances Kabot is a teacher, spiritual counselor and trained Energy Therapy Practitioner, who understands the effect of the higher vibrations. “We are evolving! This is the first time in human history that we are witnessing our own evolution. These children are not so different anymore. Many of us are experiencing the shift in the energy of our planet,” Irene explains.

No need to bypass all the health perks of fresh superfoods this winter — simply grow them inside on a sunny window ledge...
Editor's Note from Cheryl Murphy: Superfoods aren't just for outdoor growth, according to Caroleanne Wright, author for Waking Times. One's windowsill is the perfect location for growing nutritious power foods during the winter. Stay healthy during colder months with a nutritious mini-garden indoors that could include arugula, cilantro or oregano as close as a sunny window ledge.

The most immediate "other" to a newborn infant is mom. After all that infant just spent several months in the warm, safe, nearly silent cocoon called its mother's womb. Her smells, her sounds, rhythms, and her heartbeat are familiar and safe because the infant existed within her. It is therefore logical to reach out to the most familiar being in that infant's world, the mother as intimate, subjective, personal security...

I came across the phrase ‘Loving Yourself 101’ in a magazine a few months ago. I don’t remember what the article was about, only that it was witty and funny and personal in that moving-without-being-sappy way that good writers can do...
Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Never have I experienced such difficulty in writing an article for All Things Healing as I have in bringing together my thoughts and feelings around the issue of self-love. Loving Yourself 101 was an idea I came up with four months ago as the basis for an art therapy workshop. Since then, I've advertised the workshop, got sick and had to cancel, the venue became unavailable, I've procrastinated endlessly, chickened out big-time, my confidence has plummeted and I've questioned my whole worth as an art therapist. All as a result of doubting the validity and necessity of loving oneself - go figure! Physician - heal thyself, i say.

"No coffee?" I whined while staring at the obviously empty pot and shelf. "The Circle K is finished, Tracy" Brian stated while giving me a kiss while heading out to work at the hospital...
Editor's Note from Eileen Gonzalez: Tracy is genuine, caring and has a gift which she openly shares with others. She has reached a level of awareness and peace which she emits to all she come in contact with. Earlier this month, Tracy published another book meant to help kids fall in love with reading, "101 Sensational Story Starters for 5th and 6th Grade Students".

We have all heard about how important it is for our physical and mental health to take time to recharge and unwind to reduce stress. But we don’t often hear how important it is to our creative side. Nor do we seem to hear about “creative” ways to unwind...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: I love the spirit of this article and how it inspires us to unwind creatively. For many, carving out personal, quiet time to nurture and express our creative side is a tall order given the fast pace of our lives. This fall seems like the perfect time to goal ourselves one creative project or endeavor a month. Just one. To sing, draw, paint, photograph, dance or peruse a gallery.

I'm 3 months pregnant and my doctor is encouraging me to get the flu shot. Is this safe for the baby?
Although we have all suffered from influenza (flu) one time or another, many people don't realize that the flu can be a severe illness...
Editor's Note: Dr. Feder does a good job of making you think in this article about the CDC recommendation of a flu shot during pregnancy. Flu shots contain mercury, yet they tell you to stay away from mercury ladened fish while pregnant. Mercury is a known neurotoxin that crosses the blood brain barrier (meaning it gets in the brain).
