Autumn is here in the northern hemisphere. Mabon to the pagans.
We have arrived at the moment of the year where night and day are poised in equilibrium – and from where night will gradually encroach more and more upon our waking hours.
Nature provides us with so many metaphors at this time of the year. Produce is plentiful so we can celebrate abundance. The trees shedding their leaves show us how to release what is no longer needed and simplify our life. And as the nights draw in and we go within we have time to reflect on our own light in the darkness.
It’s a rich time.
So whether you celebrate or not at this point of the year you can always think about whether you are typically ‘light’ or ‘dark’.
Are your actions, beliefs and thought patterns based in love or fear? How does the darkness serve you? And how can you use the season for inspiration?
