Today is the autumn equinox, when the equator passes the centre of the sun and the north and south poles are aligned, marking the balance of Day and Night. .
Today is the first day of Autumn. After this magical equinox, the days get shorter and the nights get longer. In times past, it signalled when farmers brought in their harvest, ready for the full moon tomorrow, the Harvest Moon.
Many celebrate the equinox as a deeply spiritual time, giving thanks for the summer and paying tribute to the coming darkness.
I light a candle to give thanks and to celebrate all that has past this year and to prepare for the colder nights ahead, leading to Winter Solstice. It is a magical time, as we all start to light our candles, get cosy and look forward to all of the festivities coming up over the next 3 months.💫💫💫
