The Wheel of the Year continues it slow, steady turn toward a new month, a new season and best of all… mine and my grandson’s birthdays!!!
I can feel autumn’s energy calling and reaching for me. I am ready and excited with my embrace. I am ready for the ahhhh. If you know me, you know that autumn is my favorite season, my favorite time of the year. It is the season when I truly come to life.
Do…the vibrant colors of autumn… the deep reds, browns, oranges, purples, yellows and greens call to you like the paints of an artist palette’s call to them?
Do…you feel gratitude, a time of reflection, a time of slowing down, do you feel the blessings of the months that have already turned?
Do…the pots and pans of the kitchen’s hearth call to you to fill them with foods and spices… pumpkins, wheat, apples, squash, sweet potatoes, corn, soups, stews, homemade jams, jellies and apple butter, spices of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and pumpkin spice?
Do…you hear the memories of the past… fun times of preserving fruits, vegetables, making candy apples, cookies, pies and baking bread with your mom or grandma, raking leaves with dad or grandpa only to jump in the huge piles and scatter them about again, giggles and homemade Halloween costumes?
Do…you wait for the thinning veil that allows the spirits of known and unknown ancestors to come visiting?
Do…you hear the knock on the door from the Goddesses of the season…Hekate, Cerridwen, Demeter, Persephone,and Morrigan?
Do…you behold the beautiful flowers of the season… marigolds, chrysanthemums, sunflowers, black eyed Susan’s, dahlia’s and coneflower with their scents and nectar drawing the butterflies and bees?
Do…you glimpse the spiders, the webs they weave, the crafty red fox, the ravens, the crows, the hooting owl sitting in the tree all looking to walk with and guide you through the season?
Do…you adorn your autumn altar with fresh and dried autumn flowers, dried leaves that have fallen from the trees, acorns, mini pumpkins, gourds, sheaths of wheat and colorful candles with autumn scents?
Do I? Yes!
The love of autumn and it’s energies are a part of my ingrained DNA. Autumn evokes peace, joy, happiness and contentment in my life and soul.
What does autumn evoke in you?
