Equinox- A good time to think about balance

The autumnal equinox is just days away.  My family will celebrate with a quiet dinner, some candles and the scent of fresh air moving through apartment.  I will also take time to offer bread and wine to the gods and spirits.  It is also a time of transition around the house.  Summer things will begin to be packed away, I will switch out the bright summer decorations in favor of pumpkins and leaves.  It's time to start pruning the plants and canning the harvest season's fruits.

Equinoxes are a time in which nature balances darkness and light.  It's a great time for you to work on dealing with imbalances in your life.  Contemplate what is out of balance, then make a resolution to address the imbalance, it doesn't have to be a huge, grand gesture; it can be baby steps.  The autumn equinox is also a really good time to begin any work you may need to do with your shadow self.

Autumn is a great time to perform craft based spells and embrace a bit of darkness in your life.  Deep colors and deep thoughts, candlelight and dark chocolate.  Preparation and transition are the themes of the season both in the inner and outer realms.

Happy Autumn Equinox, Mabon or Harvest time!
