Welcome to the Autumn Equinox
We have reached another point of the year when day and night are equal. The temperature is getting cooler and colorful leaves are falling from the trees. We saw the first acorn on one of the smaller oak trees in the yard. This is when we celebrate the second of three harvests. It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the first fruits and now we are harvesting the grains. We begin to prepare ourselves for the coming dark part of the year. Every day will grow shorter until after the Winter Solstice.
In August, I was able spend time with my friend and mentor, Deanne. Together, we created Knots of Isis. Deanne told me about them and showed me how to make them. We used polymer clay and baked them in the oven. I made mine to stand up on my altar and Deanne made hers to lay flat. We had a gathering with a few of the local women and two other Apple Branch women for ritual.
We learned about bind runes and each picked out a piece of wood. For my bind rune, I selected Fehu, Uruz, Kenaz and Laguz. While drawing the bind rune, I discovered Raidho was also there. I chalked it up to a happy accident. We had a lovely time together and I hope it is not another six years before we see each other again.
May you all be blessed with an abundant harvest.
Blessings of the Season,
