Autumn Equinox arrived Monday evening along with the waning moon and I was in overdrive to clean and throw out. For years I have seen all kinds of Spring cleaning ideas but in Spring I'm ready to break free and be outside - no time for house cleaning. In Autumn I am ready to be a homebody, to feather (and dust!) my nest ... I even cleaned windows and mopped!
Pumpkins (the fake ones for now, I'll wait and buy real ones in October) are dotted across my front porch and my marigolds have stayed pretty for me to have a bit of orange in the backyard.
My Monday evening ceremony was simple and easy (just like me). I got the idea for my celebration from Anni at This Witch's Way. Her calm, peaceful Mabon video comforted me and introduced a new way to celebrate this time of year. I made my own ritual to fit my life (doesn't everyone?). It is good to learn, and try, new things.
