Today marks the beginning of fall and the end of summer. The sun’s shining hard over my garden, which is winding down for the cold season. Yesterday I baked two golden loaves of onion bread. They tasted amazing. I stored them in the freezer. I love to bake my own bread.
Mercury Retrograde goes direct today. You can all breathe a sigh of relief. The signs of autumn are around us. Pumpkins appeared in the stores, leaves turn color and trickle to the earth, and an early chill is in the air. Even if you work a day job, try to get out of the house to enjoy the first day of fall. A squirrel hops over the tree branches outside. He’s storing seeds for the winter season.
Stock up on pumpkins, save garden seeds, and harvest your herbs. Today is a day to celebrate the fall season. The best way to do that is to go outside. Explore a nature trail, clean up the garden, and soak up the sunshine.
Dig out your cardigans. Its the perfect time to examine your wardrobe and donate unwanted or unused clothing or other items to a thrift store. Clean up your fall coats, shawls, ponchos, cloaks and cardigans. Put away summer clothes. I love fall because I finally get to wear ‘fall style’ clothing. I plan to sew myself a few new shawls, skirts and dresses this fall.
Decorate your home with ears of corn, squashes, gourds, pumpkins and pretty jars and vials of garden harvested seeds. Score some cool finds from the local crafts shops for Halloween items to decorate your place.
This will lift you into the spirit of autumn. Merry Mabon
