Autumnal Equinox ~ Change of Season !

The Autumnal Equinox this year falls on 22nd of September 2010 in the Eastern Hemisphere. During this time the Sun moves in the northern hemisphere southwards crossing over the celestial equator.

This is also a holiday, known as Mabon, a Sabbath. A Sabbath is considered a high holy day or a day of power. Mabon is one of eight of the seasonal celebratory days in which Pagans and Wiccans celebrate on the wheel of the year.

Mabon is seen as the second harvest of the year and it is also when gardens are in full bloom and full of the bounty of nature.
It is thought of as the ‘Pagan Thanksgiving’ where they celebrate the passing of the year and in turn give thanks for everything they have been given.

Spring Fever

Quote:

“It’s spring fever.¬† That is what the name of it is.
And when you’ve got it, you want –
oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want,
but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
–¬†¬†– Mark Twain

Spring is here .. the lilac’s are finally budding.¬† The ‘new green’ color of the leaves, violets, daffodils, tulips .. I am always overwhelmed watching Mother Earth wake up after the long winter .. rebirth, new beginnings, life bursting all around us!!

The scent of Lilacs

Enjoy your spring! May it be bursting with color and the heady scent of flowers.
