Summer is officially over. Autumn has begun! Today is the Autumn Equinox, the first day of Fall. Equinox, meaning "equal night", means that there is an equal amount of hours of day and night today. Starting tomorrow the nights will grow longer until we reach the Winter Solstice in December.
Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love the cool weather, the colorful leaves, and of course, my favorite holiday (Halloween) is in Fall as well. My birthday is also in the fall and I'm a big believer that we all hold special the month and season in which we were born. It's as if they somehow belong to us.
For Wiccans and Neo-Pagans, today is Mabon, the second harvest festival of the year and the celebration of the arrival of Autumn.
If you wildcraft your own roots and herbs then today is the cut off date as the belief is that from here on out the power of the roots and herbs will wane as we near Winter.
Wishing All Of My Readers A Very Wonderful Autumn Season!
