Dear Flower Lover
We want to remind you that Autumn is special.
There is so much to celebrate — pumpkins, apples, crimson leaves and of course the holidays of autumn. We get to meet people who don’t follow any single spiritual path but have woven a tapestry of practices and beliefs that reflect my own beliefs and values.
Autumn Equinox Celebrations
The equinox is an astronomical point. Due to the earth’s wobble on its axis the date may vary by a few days depending on the year. In the present century the times of the equinoxes have ranged between the latest dates September 24 (in 1903) and September 22 (in 2000).
The autumnal equinox occurs when the sun crosses the equator on it’s apparent journey southward, and we experience a day and a night that are of equal duration. Since the Spring Equinox, the hours of daylight have been greater than the hours from dusk to dawn. But from now on, the reverse holds true. The equinox refers to the time that occurs twice a year when the nighttime is equal to the daytime — each being 12 hours in duration
Astrologers know this as the date on which the sun enters the sign of Libra, the Balance (an appropriate symbol of a balanced day and night).
Seasonal days of celebration during late September occur around the world. Many are religious holy days, and are linked in some way to the beginning of autumn or autumnal equinox. Common themes for such holidays include: balance, harvest, hunting, and remembrance of the dead. Some clients use this time to fast and explore that inside them that’s is perfect. They may use flowers to represent that time passing.
“Symbols celebrating the season include various types of gourd and melons. Wheat and sheaf of the harvest all bundled by the reapers.
Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere
