‘Tis the season of the Witch

It is that time of the year…when the mornings and evenings are crisp and fresh.  When the leaves on the trees start their fantastically colourful journey from green through all the glorious oranges and reds.  Ultimately, they drop to the ground obviously, but it is all part of the cycle of life.  Allowing the tree to rest throughout the cold months ready to renew afresh in the spring.

I love the autumn, it is my favourite season.  There is something very magical about the whole atmosphere and energy of it.  Not just because Samhain is on the way, being my birthday has nothing to do with the excitement at all…honest… This time of the year just feels full of energy and magical possibilities.

Sun magic

Although I spent a lot of the summer working with sun magic, let’s face it, in the UK we have had one of the hottest summers ever so there was plenty of sun to work with.  I am not really a sun worshipper.  For me the magic happens once the energy changes.  That point when the equinox hits and things start to turn.

Late September and October are when I have a clear out.  I look back at the year so far, see what has worked and what hasn’t.  I sort out my wardrobe, putting away all the floaty summer frocks and sandals and embrace my velvet wear and my boots.   Autumn is also when I have a good magical declutter; the herb cupboard, the candles, the altar bits and bobs that have all be shoved in the cupboard over the past few months when I haven’t needed them.
