The leaves start changing
The air a bit crisper and cooler
School has started
Farmers are finishing up their harvest
Finishing up preparations for winter
Time of balance and reflection when the day and night are equal
This is what the Autumn Equinox or Mabon stands for me. I do not know why but this is my favorite time of the year. The colors and cool air and seeing things come to completion. For me the Wheel of time seems to slow down just before it completes its cycle and so do I, to breath and ground myself. So I encourage all to take some time during the next few days to stop, admire the beauty around us and thank what God or gods you honor.
