Preparing for the Autumn Equinox tomorrow, Sunday, September 22, I am guided to re-read some of my past blog articles that I wrote about past Autumn Equinoxes. I had not realized that I have been writing about Equinoxes and Solstices for nearly a decade. It’s funny how fast the years past and we don’t really see what we have accomplished until we turn around to acknowledge that accomplishment.
I noticed that I used Ted Andrews as a resource many times in those blog articles. I still find what he shared about the Autumn Equinox very relevant. Here is what he had to say from his book Nature Speaks; “Autumn Equinox is the Beginning the Hero’s Journey. This is the time of year that is about endings and beginnings. This is a of year time of new starts as we clean out the old. We gather the harvest for the year and the harvest is an abundant year of inner work, peace, solitude and joy.”
There are so many shifts and changes from this past spring and summer. I feel l was walking down one path and found myself on a very different path without the conscious awareness of my mind when the changed occurred. But, in my heart, I felt the rumblings of the change coming and then, poof, I was walking a different path. I went from being over booked teaching workshops and having very little time in between the workshop to a wide open calendar as I cancelled my fall and early winter workshops (except for Star Nations – The Illuminated Now on Oct 19) due to family needs. Interesting. I find this fitting as we are at the Crosswinds of the Medicine Wheel.
I read in one of my past Autumn Equinox blogs that I was sowing the seeds to blend together all that I learned about feng shui, sacred space, sacred geometry, ceremony, drumming, Synchro Alignment with my cultural heritage. And, I did. Now I am on the path to deepen this blending and to find a new way to deliver my services to my community. I am developing a new teaching format and also broadening, expanding, the reach of Sacred Hoop as I continue to be available for my family. This is a very exciting time, The Beginning of the Hero’s Journey.
Have you experienced the shift and changes? Are you planning something new? Now is a good time to finish up old “business”, as we ride the vespers of the Full Moon and tap into the energies of the Autumn Equinox.
Blessed Autumn Equinox
