Autumnal Equinox (Mabon) Saturday, September 22, 2018 9:54 pm Eastern Time

Dear, Awakening, and Compassionate Children of the Earth,

The Autumnal Equinox is happening! Day and Night are balancing. We can feel the Wheel of the Year turning: the light is different, the sun sets earlier, geese are beginning to head south.  It’s time to take a little break from all our hard work, to celebrate and share the fruits of our labors.  It’s Harvest Time!

Winter Solstice, Thursday, December 21, 2017 at 10:28 am CST

Dear, Darling and Much-loved Children of the Earth,...

Happy Winter Solstice! It's time to celebrate the birth of the Sun! 
Just when it seemed nights would continue to lengthen, The Wheel of the Year turns and we find ourselves facing... more Light!

We may not notice it at first--we may assume that the nights are just going to get longer as we head into the "dead of winter". But the opposite is true. The day after Solstice, our day is minutes longer and keeps lengthening till we get to Mid-Summer.

Cherry blossoms, close-upDear, Sustainable and Ever-Renewing Children of the Earth,

Happy Spring!  The Vernal Equinox has arrived!  Three months after the Winter Solstice, we say goodby to old man winter and hello to the newborn Spring.

Equinox is the time when Day and Night are of equal length.  In the northern hemisphere, Day will increase for the next three months until Summer Solstice gives us the full warmth of our Sun.
