The fall equinox is tonight at about 2:00 a.m., a few days later this year from the Earth wobbling on her axis. Here’s your heads up if you want to learn about the science or see what neo-pagan ritual to plan for it. As a wanna-be Druid myself, I like this quote about it:
[It] marks the middle of harvest, it is a time of equal day and equal night, and for the moment nature is in balance. It is a time to reap what you have sown, of giving thanks for the harvest and the bounty the Earth provides. For finishing up old projects and plans and planting the seeds for new enterprises or a change in lifestyle.
Also, remember that fall can be hard on people so go easy on yourself this month and next. As a yoga teacher said once, “Our bodies still think we’re cavemen. The weather and the seasons affect us, as civilized as we think we are.”
