For those of us in the Northern hemisphere it is officially fall and even here in North Texas we are feeling the shift in the air. Days are getting longer and the sun rising later and later in the morning. It’s a delightful time. Each season holds its own magic and powers. Here I’ll share what I have found to be the most potent energies of this time.
If summer is the time of action and growth then fall is when we begin to see the results of this movement. Autumn is harvest time. Now while we are always manifesting and gathering the abundance of our lives and intentions, Autumn’s harvest time is associated with the energy of preparation for a time of rest.
Here in the USA, Autumn signaled the start of a new year for primary and secondary education after the summer or planting/growing season breaks. This was the short break before it was time to harvest the crops before the first frost. Thoughts were centered on abundance, return on investment, and joy at witnessing the yields of the earth. Our society doesn’t function in quite the same way but the energy that abounds during this time is the same.
Now is the time to put your efforts towards harvest. There’s several ways you can do this.
- Assess what goals you made for this past year, season, and month. What has come to pass? What would you like to see improve? What did you think went well?
- Celebrate your accomplishments. There’s nothing better on a cool fall evening then spending time with those you cherish and support you. Whether you plan a nice lunch or breakfast for yourself, throw a big get together just for fun or one of the many holidays during this time, or have a small gathering for a bonfire, you deserve to enjoy the fruits of your labors. Don’t get caught up in whether you had big wins or just made it through the summer, your being deserves to be loved and acknowledged.
- Plan- Winter is the season of rest, shadow work, and rejuvenation. How do you plan to spend your winter? After, assessing where you’ve been it’s the perfect time to dream of where you would like to go. Dream big loves.
- Lastly, always express gratitude for all the wonderful things that have come to pass, are currently in the works, and all that will come to pass.
Here’s to a fabulous harvest season!!
