The official start of the autumnal season coincides with the start of Libra Season.
Autumn is the time of year when the days and nights are of equal length. As the days pass they get a little shorter and cooler until we reach Winter Solstice. Libra starts off autumn by creating beauty and balance. I welcome the cool mornings and nights and savor the warm days of autumn. I also appreciate the trees changing colors and releasing their leaves as they prepare for Winter. The process of the trees dropping their leaves serves as a reminder that letting go is a natural part of life. This prepares us for when Scorpio season invites us to transform. While Sagittarius season rounds out autumn with optimism, faith, and adventure.
