CYCLES OF THE EARTH
With the height of summer now waning and harvest gathered in leaving only the grapes still on the vine, the Autumn Equinox signifies a world poised at the balance of equal light and dark, as the Sun enters into Libra and we begin the descent into the dark tide of the year. The early morning sun makes its low ascent now through soft damp mist and the earthy scent of Autumn begins to permeate the air. Later, against the backdrop of a crisp blue Autumn sky, the starry forms of the hero Perseus and his maiden Andromeda appear in the early evening sky. Persephone, Maiden of Earth and Queen of the Underworld, makes her transition now from the Lady of the fertile green landscape to become the Queen of the Underworld, exchanging her garment of summer fruitfulness for the dark outer robes which contain the richness and power of the inner life. Our thoughts and feelings too shift from outward activity toward introspection. It is the time for a mental gathering up and review of that which has taken root and flowered within the year, for harvesting in the fruits of our projects and plans. Now we can turn to making ready for the chilly Autumn days and longer nights ahead when we can embrace the interior life and take time for quiet contemplation which will bring its rewards of insight, self-awareness and inner vision.
