A Blessed Equinox

in Nature, Place, Wheel of the Year


My friend Cate Kerr of Beyond the Fields We Know wrote a lovely piece on Autumn Equinox, posted on her blog this morning.  I especially like what she says about this day being a threshold or liminal time, the border between summer and fall.

My friend Beth Owl's Daughter has a great post too, a bit witchier than Cate's.  I'l like to let them both speak for me today, about this holy-day.

I marked the Day & Night of Balance (Dark Ascending) yesterday, by walking around a nearby lake and getting caught up on the gossip of the neighborhood: thimbleberries are long gone, blackberries are about all picked over, Doug fir cones are hanging low, dripping with fragrant sap. 

Blessed Equinox, everyone.

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .

    Thanks for your kind words, Joanna. May all your harvests be most richly blessed and in balance and beauty may you always journey.

    “Gossip of the neighbourhood” – ha ha! I liked that very much!

    Thank you Sister Joanna, and I hope it was a magical Equinox for you!

    Cate, it was indeed! Thank you. Beth, hugs back to you. Anna, I love that phase too but can’t take credit for it – it’s a reference to something Gary Snyder said in an interview, long time ago.
