Change is a measure of time and, in the autumn, time seems speeded up. What was is not and never again will be; what is, is change. – Edwin Teale
Leaves have been falling in my garden for a while now, and you can feel the changes in the air. The asters are blooming, the wind is crisp and sunset is coming earlier as we move towards the Autumnal Equinox. It's an exciting, yet bittersweet time of year for the moms who are sending their babies off to kindergarten, high school or to college.
In ancient times, our ancestors celebrated the Autumnal Equinox (or Mabon) as the second harvest festival; it was a time of prosperity; the fruition of months of hard work. The celebration would be similar to our Thanksgiving. I like to honor the equinoxes. I find that these quieter moments are more meaningful as I reflect on the changes that are happening in my life.
The Autumnal Equinox is all about balance. It is the day that is divided equally into day and night,
light and dark. And if you think about it, it is the perfect time to do some inner work,
to look at the balance within ourselves.
Take a moment to honor all aspects of ourselves without judgment.
To be a little kinder to that person who stares back at us from the mirror each morning.
