Second Harvest

Today is the Autumnal equinox or Mabon. On this day, just as on the Spring equinox, day and night are of equal length.

We are moving into the darker part of the year.

During this time,ancient civilizations have held spectacular festivals to bolster spirits as it appeared that the darkness was "winning".

Darkness is not a bad thing. Without a little dark to balance the light, crops would die,as the earth overheated.

Spiritually, the darkness is what we must face to heal and make ourselves whole. It is a place where our lessons live and where we rest when we are tired.

Mabon is the second of three harvest festivals. What seeds are you harvesting from the past year? How have they grown?  What will you plant in the year to come?

If your "harvest" is lean, don't despair. Think about how you will improve your yield in the coming year.

The word for the day is "balance". Look at the parts of your life that feel unbalanced.and ask what you can do to correct the situation.

Every lesson learned is another blessing to fill your harvest horn of plenty.

Enjoy your day! May your harvest be bountiful!
