Happy Autumn Equinox everyone! Time for cooler weather and warm jumpers and scuffing through the autumn leaves.

I like the suggestion of calling it Haligmonað, after the Old English month.
Anyway whatever you call it, blessings of the season!
It’s a time of balance between darkness and light, but with darkness gaining the upper hand.
Darkness is necessary for rest, sleep, and regeneration. Cold is a necessary part of the cycle too.
Autumn Equinox is the second of three harvests. Lammas is the grain harvest; Autumn Equinox is the fruit harvest; Samhain is the meat harvest.
