Today is the Autumnal Equinox ~ Mabon ~ one of two days of the year when the hours of light equal the hours of dark. Autumn begins with Lammas and ends on Samhain, with Mabon marking the mid-point. The Autumnal Equinox is a time to work with balance ~ to feel and gather the memory and energy of what that means in life and body.
As we move forward into days of decreasing light and increasing darkness we can see how they belong together to create a free-flow of giving and receiving. It becomes like breathing, teaching us the ability to empty out to create space for new beginnings.
Summers bring high energy and as we move into fall we feel our energy starting to become quieter, a slowing down to prepare us for coming darker days of winter. It is a beautiful time to take stock of what you have grown. This seasonal cycle of growth helps us to stay present to the ongoing changes our life brings. Today marks a lovely time to gather the riches and wisdom you have gained over this year that you would like to take with you into the depths of the reflective lake over these coming months.
Here are a few ways to play with this energy of balance today:
Today practice the art of doing without doing and see what happens. This is a concept of seeing that we move forward with or without our own participation. Enjoy the energies ~
Happy Autumn Moon Family,
