The first of a few thoughts on the Autumnal Equinox, aka Mabon – September 20th-23rd
Night and day are of equal length and in perfect equilibrium; dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer, all in balance. From this cusp of transition, the days begin to wane, and darkness begins to defeat the light. The natural cycle is moving towards completion; the Sun’s power is waning, and the nights grow longer and the days are shorter and cooler. The sap of trees returns to their roots deep in the earth, changing the green of summer to the fire of autumn, to the flaming reds, oranges and golds. We are returning to the dark from whence we came.
What will you let go? What will you withdraw from?
