EQUINOX… AUTUMN QUESTIONS


21 sept 2011    >  16/7   >  Tower/chariot

 

How do you secure the foundation upon which you rest?

What keeps you focused and grounded in this world?

What ‘calls’ you to take action for betterment of your community?

 

The first full day of Autumn will lay herself to the land Thursday.  Can you feel her ride on the wind?  Can you feel the smell of her on the Earth?  The leaves are changing rapidly, and the chill in the air has been pushing in for a couple of weeks.  With all the rain, I hope we get a beautiful  Indian Summer.

 Equinox

 

Summer meets her Autumn

Verdant meets her spice

Harvest meets her plow

 

Persephone hears the call of her lover

Hades welcomes Spring for his keeping

Demeter weeps.

 

A day of equality and honoring

of leaving and becoming

A pattern, a circle, a revolution

 

The season welcomes the call

Gives her gifts of abundance

prepares for rest in the winter white.

 

Seasons cycle again and again

The greening, the flowering,

the fruit gathered, the silence.

 

What have you harvested?

What needs doing to give you rest?

What will hold you safe in Winter’s chill?

 

What seed will you give Persephone, Goddess of Spring, to take beneath the earth to germinate and come to your greening?
