Welcome to the Autumnal Equinox! On Friday, September 22nd the Sun crosses the celestial equator. Daytime is almost equal to night (9 minutes longer this year). We move into the Zodiac sign of Libra (the sign of balanced scales).
On this day of balance, it is time to pause. Time to reflect on the bounty of the seasons past. Time to honor the cycles of life. Let us cultivate and honor the balance within and all around.
As Day gives way to Night and Summer ebbs into Fall, let us prepare for a season of slowing down, introspection and reflection. We harvest the bounties of what we have sown. We appreciate the gifts we have received. Honoring and continuing to nourish the intentions and dreams that sustain our souls. and letting go of what no longer does.
We acknowledge the heartbreak and disappointments, mourn the losses and disappointments. We give ourselves space and permission to let go of what no longer serves us and honor what does. We ask what will Sustain us through the longer nights ahead. We nourish these energies. We set new intentions. We clarify and Focus.
This is a powerful time to harvest our bounties, clean house, realign and set new intentions. Embrace the shifting of the seasons, the cycles of the sun and moon. Be amazed by the incredible shifts and awakenings we enjoy when we allow our outward actions and our inward desires to align with the rhythms of nature.
We bow to the light that always burns bright, even through the darkness of night.
