|| Autumn by Alphonse Mucha ||
Along with the brilliant Full Moon, today also happens to mark one of the Cross Quarters of the Wheel of the Year. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we find ourselves at the midpoint between the Summer Solstice and the Autumn Equinox, and as I like to call it, the transition from Late Summer to Early Autumn.
Known by many as Lughnasadh or Lammas (Loaf Mass) this is an opportunity to Celebrate the Harvest of First Fruits and Grains. A time to recognize both our hopes and our fears for the coming season – and open ourselves up to the wisdom that comes from contemplating these seemingly opposing emotions together. Allowing these intense emotions to mingle within creates the possibility to make peace in the present with the unknown future.
Together we enter Early Autumn in a fiery blaze – eyes wide open – ready to behold the vision of the season that comes rushing in.
