Fall (Spring in the Southern Hemisphere) Solstice!


You've been noticing the signs - the leaves and lawns are dried. Some of the leaves are turning colors. The Fall Solstice officially begins at 6:04 PM Pacific Daylight time in the Northern Hemisphere and the Spring Solstice begins at the same time in the Southern Hemisphere. The ground is warming there and signs of spring are blooming.

Because I live and follow the Northern Hemisphere, here are some things you should be doing spiritually to prepare. Autumn is about endings, and letting go. It is the completion of a life cycle for many plants and insects. For animals it's a time to prepare for the long winter ahead; gathering food or preparing a den in which to rest and retreat in the coming months ahead.
