Autumn Equinox is the 23rd September and the guardian angel of Autumn is Torquaret
She says as summer comes to an end trailing her skirts of crimson, echoing and deepening the colours. And as the leaves turn to all beautiful shades of red's and browns it is your time of reckoning.
At the start of my festival my warm amber wings are like autumn shineshine; they caress your spirit and your soul as the year draws to its conclusion, urging you to consider what you have achieved so far. Have you found greater fulfilment with elements of your life? Did the seed of your transformation that commenced with earth and re-birth grow through the power of water, flourish in the sun, then lift into the potential of the the endless horizon? If so your heart rejoices and my honeyed sun feels sweet upon your face. But if not, now is the time to re-evaluate matters for next year.
Then as the leaves fall marvel at their beauty and the living art that they make when they come to rest, but do not be sad!
Hold always in your heart the promise of spring. For soon the skies will darken and fires willl be lit to cleanse and purify the land; amber turns to bright flame as Ureil kindles fire of life above as well as beneath Mother Earth. Let this become your own flame of passion, allowing endings to ever empower another new beginning.
