The element Air is blowing in the Autumn Equinox. The wind of change is altering time; the hours of day and night are now of equal length.
Fall is my favorite time of year! Cinnamon Spice + Everything Nice ‼️
With the Sun crossing the equator from the Northern hemisphere to the Southern, I love how the leaves change colors and the winds blow softly .. the feeling of Christmas shopping and football + family are in the air!
Today, I will share some things about this Equinox and ways you can celebrate with your family.
First & Last Day of Season:
Tuesday, September 22 - Monday, December 20
Mabon. Sept 22 to Sept 29. "Thanksgiving Break" with an early twist. Major plus for my reasoning of celebration. Lesser Sabbath. Have a feast with your family and give thanks for the good of the year.
Samhain. October 31. Day of the Dead. Time to visit loved ones grave sites to clean + pay respects to ancestors, elders of faith, or any loved one. Greater Sabbath. Great time to go inward and begin shadow work as the nights grow longer than the days.
