Cards for the Day: King of Swords, Give in to Passion, and Alejandra Pizarnik.
Today is the Autumn Equinox. It’s a time when most are harvesting.
With modern paganism, it’s to look on what you planted (planned) in the spring time and see if it came to fruit while preparing for winter months.
Me, I live for fall. The fact that it cooled off where I lived, now, makes it feel like it’s real. I want to drink 7&7s and wear hoodies and just give in to Lady Autumn herself.
And while it is a time of harvest and thanksgiving, preparing for long cold winter months, I keep thinking how this is a time of planting. There are fall crops and the spring flowers that need to go into the ground now.
Fall is an end but I keep seeing it as a start. It’s the first day of a new season, like a mini new year, if you will. What can I get done before the end of this season?
Today’s cards tell me that today is a good day to start plans for what I want from Oktober, Halloween, and the long winter.
And be ready to shine come the spring time.
