Dear people celebrating Mabon/Autumn Equinox,
Happy Mabon/Autumn Equinox!
The wheel is turning…fast! I feel like I’m not keeping up, like I’m running behind desperately trying to catch up with you. I don’t want to say that I’m not ready, in a way I am ready, but if I’m honest I could do with a few more weeks of summer. I know deep down that I need that inward looking, quieter, down time of the darker half of the year though. I need the time to regroup spiritually and that, for me, comes as the wheel turns to Mabon and Samhain.
So…the equinox…a reminder that for all light there is an equal amount of dark, a sad time really, in my opinion. I would rather the world was weighted heavier on the light/good end of the spectrum, wouldn’t we all?! But balance is essential, in all things, something I would do well to remember.
Of course it’s also a time to reap what we have sown and I am currently reaping the rewards of my hard work watching my food intake and weight loss.
So as the nights get shorter I will endeavour to light the candle on my altar more often, wrapped in my onesie, and think on my life, my issues and my spirituality.
I know I’m not an awesome Pagan, I know I miss sabbats and fail at following the lunar cycle. But I guess that’s what I love about my spirituality; it’s OK to miss things, to figure it all out as I go.
Anyway, I’m rambling now, I’ll continue hanging onto your coat tails, hoping that the wheel will stop for a moment and give me chance to take breath.
Here’s to the next chapter and the turning of the wheel.
