Autumn Equinox

Autumn Equinox

The Mother Sun shines directly on the Equator again, and dances our day and night into balance. Since Summer Solstice, the hours of daylight have been greater than the hours from dusk to dawn. For the rest of the Wheel of the Year, the reverse holds true. 

In this final harvest, we have finished old projects and dreams. Trees releasing their leaves show us how to let go. Before turning from summer and facing winter, we reflect on what we are reaping, especially as a human family. We actively seek and uphold that which is positive.

The rhythm of the solar wheel suggests rest. We slow down to gently observe, absorb, and rejoice in Gaia. During the transition called autumn when we celebrate both bounty and impermanence, we reflect that Gaia too, is impermanent. How much time does She have? Yet She asks for trust, even given the alarms that surround us. We and the world flare in brief brilliance—and embrace the first footsteps of darkness.

Love this with my two main guardian animals prominent —crow and fox!!! I saw for an instant a great golden helix also superimposed on the picture, but I am not an artist so I would not be able to render that, but it can stay in my mind. It is more than a circle of life that we must affirm in this period of human history but rather the sacred DNA that unites us all ( unity in each one’s diversity) There are those who want to trample on this holy of holies with careless hands with megalomania filled minds.

The sun reaches its highest point of the year, like the culmination of a full moon's waxing. In order to stay steady in this full solar power, we ground ourselves by inviting the earth and the sky to meet in our bodies.
