Autumn Equinox 23 September

The Autumn Equinox is the point of balance in the waning year. It is the late harvest - of fruit and berries in the hedgerows. It is the time to thank the mother Goddess for bounty and abundance received gratefully and stored for times of want during the coming winter months. From now on the power of the Sun will recede as its shadow describes and anticlockwise spiral, returning to the womb/tomb.

Now is the time to reap your reward,
As we celebrate the last dance of the Sun lord.
Light and dark balanced on an ear of wheat
As the last grain signals the harvest complete.
Give praise to the Earth Mother
As she dons her wintry dark cloak
And her Autumn rains the earth will soak.
