Summer is coming to a close and the Fall/Autumn equinox is shifting us into the season of harvest and ember.
Spirits become more lively as they hustle about and their forms and voices become clearer for the next couple months in the human realm.
Communication, divination and communion are especially powerful during this time, so keep your eyes open for glints, sparkles, gifts and messages from the earth ones.
Gaia herself is taking a deep breath and releasing all the focused energy of the growth and renewal seasons that she just went through. You can feel her sinking into a calm as a sense of relief comes over the world.
The colour of the sun is warmer and the entirely of nature is filled with gold, red, oranges, yellow and glistening tones. The air is crisper and sounds clearer.
The cycle of life has come to fruition and the spirit world opens the gates as sprites, elementals, fey and spirits of harvest dash into our world. The slowed and stilled summer spirits are escorted back to their realms as the energies of creation and growth come to their final resting place for the year.
The fall spirits come back into our realm and begin their hurried work of guiding nature into its next cycle. You can see, hear and feel their excitement with every rustle of leaves and turning of soil.
They draw down the sap, dance and chime beside the late harvests and give reverence to Gaia for all the life she sustains. This is a time of excitement for renewed energy. The gentle and slow hum of Summer is over and the focus of growth can be laid to rest for another year.
As nature turns her colours, the feelings of warmth, comfort and security permeate the earth. The season of herbs closes into the season of spices and seeds and nuts are ready for harvest. We are preserving, baking and stocking the pantry in preparation for the cooler months.
A new surge beckons and the fire is restored in our spirits. Creativity abounds this time of the year as the energy is released and open for self creation rather than physical creation.
Our life force is reinvigorated and we are presented with the final sprint before the slower energy of the cooler months.
This is the time for inspiration and intuition. What ever we have been mulling over for the last few months will finally have an answer, as the world is vibrating with a little more clarity
Clear your space and ground your energy. Pull out your list of manifestations and feel if you still resonate with what you wanted earlier in the year.
Dig through your house, yard and any storage and throw out anything that you haven’t used for the last year. View this season as a time for making room for all bounty of the current year and final adjustments for the shifts in your desires.
As we start entering the cooler parts of the year, energy becomes slower and more effort is required to clear space, whether it’s physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, so make sure to capitalize on this energy of release and safety.
You can wear warmer tones, place items around your home that represents and draws in the energy of the season. Burn candles, wear jewelry made of precious metals, bake and drink plenty of warm beverages.
The rule of thumb with celebrating any energy is to bring activities and décor into your space that sparks and connects you to the vibration of that time. For each of us it is slightly different.
Also, if you commune with the spirit world regularly, then you can use the next 40 to 60 days to set the stage and prepare for the time of year when the veil between worlds becomes the thinnest.
Whether you are dedicated craft practitioner or a lightworker that refuels and balances love through the ambiance of the seasons; the fall equinox brings with it amazingly safe, loving and comforting energy to reignite your ambitions and spirit.
Dust yourself in a little extra gold and mind your steps as the wee ones scurry about their busying pace. Leave out some honey or dried herbs, and always leave a little piece of your harvest behind for them to gather. Whether it’s in the garden or a single acorn you place on your stairs outside as a gift.
Honour the harmony and relationship between our world’s and give a gentle nudge of welcome to our guests.
As always, walk in balance, integrity and love.
