Autumnal Equinox

Our inner fire burns brilliant and strong
to guide our way through shadows long.
Hold sacred and close passion’s fierce flame
for when all falls away,
it is our dreams that remain.

- Mara Friedman

This is the point on the wheel of the year when there is a balance between the energies, of outward, physical, yang manifestation and inward, psychic, yin creativity. There will be equal hours of daylight and darkness this day.

This balance point of the rational and the intuitive will exist for a moment, and then the forces of intuitive, dark, inner contemplation will slowly ascend and rule the seasonal wheel through the winter. At Winter Solstice, the inner world of yin will be at its zenith.

We now enter the all-important time of inner growth. During summer, there was little time for the juices of contemplative creativity to bubble up from deep within us. Now is the time to prepare for this to occur most fruitfully. Only when we surrender to our inner nature can we begin to hear the still small voice within, and we must set our outer affairs in order now to be ready when it calls.
