Seeing what still needs tending through the coming winter months
and what has run it's course.
Mabon (the Autumnial Equniox) is a time of "balance" days and nights.
We come out of the busy outward focused time of summer
and start the journey inward by honoring our personal
For me, this time always seems like an in breath before the
busy-ness of the holiday season starts to get underway.
On a personal level, I use this time for honoring my journey through
the past few months and taking a look ahead to set some new intentions
for what qualities I want to nurture to help me balance on my inward winter journey.
Since first harvest, we've been going on daily nature walks, observing the changes in the behavior of the geese and ducks in our neighborhood pond, watching the trees, learning their names and picking out our favorites.
Today we'll be making seed cakes and taking some around to those trees to hang for the birds (we'll save some for the winter months).
And if the weather continues to be nice, we'll end the day by going to the County Fair to see what other people have harvested during the year and to celebrate with rides and funnel cake!
