Ever lovely, September has graced us with a soft light and gentle presence. That said, there certainly have been contrasting and opposing energies around the globe.
The growing season this year has been intriguing. Flowers who were yellow last year were orange this summer; some who were red last year became orange; some plants surprisingly did not flower whilst others were a riot of abundance; delightful roses who were white last year became a soft pink this year; root vegetables refused to do anything early on, yet are flourishing now!
Mother Nature is kind for she has led us by the hand gliding us from Late Summer, a most distinct season, into Autumn heralded by the Equinox celebration. This festival of thanksgiving and reconciliation calls for a pause as day and night are in equal balance. It is time to check what sort of balance we have in our own lives and make adjustments as necessary; time to heal old wounds; time to re-ground ourselves for inner and outer stability. Pausing for reflection also gives us the chance to adjust to the forthcoming energies of Autumn and Winter.
Relationships may have featured during the Late Summer season. Some fade or are extinguished, others flourish; some change, others are new and exciting. Let us give thanks for them all.
Nature is so generous in this ‘season of plenty’. She has overcome and adjusted to the many changes and challenges of the year, a fine example for us to do the same. Let us face every new day with awareness and interest for each day will call for different qualities in us. Now seems a perfect time to share this luscious dahlia’s guidance, received today, as I wish you a bountiful and rewarding Autumn.
