The Autumn Equinox: What Is It And How To Celebrate

As we say goodbye to summer's warmth and greet the arrival of fall, let's delve into the Autumn Equinox – a natural phenomenon that signals the onset of this cozy season.

 

What Is the Autumn Equinox?

 

The Autumn Equinox, also known as Mabon, occurs this year on Saturday 23rd September. It marks the day when daylight and nighttime hours are equal, symbolizing the equilibrium in nature. This transition ushers in the autumn season with its vivid colors and cooler temperatures.

 

Connecting with Nature

 

To celebrate the Autumn Equinox, immerse yourself in nature's beauty. Take leisurely walks through forests, witness the leaves' transformation from green to fiery hues, and collect natural treasures like fallen leaves, acorns, and pinecones for charming home decorations or even offerings for deities and ancestors.

 

Decorate Your Space

 

Infuse your living spaces with the essence and energy of the equinox. Decorate your altar or mantle with candles, crystals, and harvest symbols like cornucopias, dried flowers and herbs, and candles. Use warm, earthy colors such as deep reds, golden yellows, and rustic browns to create a cozy atmosphere.

 

Feasting Delights

 

No celebration is complete without delicious food, and the equinox is no different. Indulge in autumnal delights like roasted root vegetables, apple pies, and hearty stews. Make use of seasonal ingredients like pumpkins, squash, and apples to craft a menu that pays tribute to the fall harvest and honors the energies of the harvest.

 

 

As we step into the Autumn Equinox, let's savour the balance and beauty it brings to our lives. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner or just someone who enjoys the changing seasons, this is a time to cherish and celebrate.
