September 23rd Autumn Equinox

Autumn Equinox, or the first day of fall, comes on a different date every year. This year it happens to fall, pun intended, on September 23rd. So get ready for the leaves to change, for there to be a nip in the air and for all the celebration to come.

Officially, it marks the most balanced day of the year. 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. It became a day of celebration, set by the pagans who marked it as the birthday of Mabon, the daughter of Mordon, the Goddess of Earth.

Well, if you are tired of summer, the heat… and down here in Florida the rain, today is your best friend! Some like the darkness coming early, others hate it, most of us enjoy the cooler temperatures but nearly every one enjoys the rich colors. The reds, oranges, tans still mixed with some green and the deep blue sky.

Every season has it’s ups and downs, those things we love about them, and those things we hate. They are going to come whether we want them to or not. So might as well find something you enjoy!
