Well, I had started a blog to post about the upcoming eclipse, but I didn’t finish it.
So here we are, riding that eclipse energy of change right up to the change of seasons and the upcoming Autumnal Equinox. “The equinox occurs on Friday Sept. 22nd at 1:02 pm (West Coast). The sun will rise and set exactly in the east and west. It will move in a laser-straight line across the sky. It’s a time of precision and a good time to contemplate the idea of equality.”*
Fall has always been my favorite season. The changing colors are glorious! The busy-ness of summer slows down, the very air smells different and turns cool and crisp, the harvest of the gardens, fields and orchards comes to a celebratory finish.
Our energies shift as well. We begin to turn inwards, we start to think of cozy places indoors and lovely warm foods – soups, stews, baked apples, warm bread.
In the shop we have a versatile Food Mill and a Vegetable Chopper to help with your preserving and cooking. Some wonderful Gardener’s Salve to refresh your hands after harvesting or cleaning up your yard. And beautiful stone or salt candle holders to warm your home.
