A quick hello and checking in …. Certainly, a lot has occurred since the last time I wrote here in May, several months ago ~ We’re now just a week in after Autumn Equinox 🍂🍁🍂🍁 and the moon has been in Pisces ♓️ the past few days… Soon, the moon will in Aries ♈️ and a full moon 🌕 this Friday!! This is the last super moon of 2023; just before we start eclipse season in October ~ spooky season just right around the corner …. Pumpkins 🎃, bats 🦇, 👻 ghosts, ancestors, and much more 🍁🍂🍁🍂

Autumn Equinox was the second harvest; the third harvest is Samhain aka All Hallows/ Shadowfest / Halloween ~ more on this soon ✨✨✨

I’m grateful that it’s now starting to actually feel like autumn 🍂🍁🍂🍁 season; earlier today was the first actual full on downpour rain 🌧️🌧️🌧️ and it was interesting to see the shift in the weather and energies overall. The trees, plants, and earth definitely need the water!
