“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe

The Autumn Equinox takes place on September 23, leading to the Full Harvest Moon, September 27, 2015.

We are magic and our darkness is the way into the light.

Standing at the edge of the precipice of  life, we wonder what steps to take. The ground beneath shakes with every move we make.

Responding to this sacred energy inside, the enchanted forest breathes you in, the sky opens to receive your cry, rain falls in response to your thirst.

The sun retreats and gives space to the moon who will guide you on your journey.

Welcome to the Autumn Equinox and the Harvest Moon.

We will no longer be able to hold back on our dreams, the longings of our souls.

What brews dark and ancient within us will spill out onto the tapestry of life.

Chaos will be our new name…after all, there is always an earthquake before new mountains are formed.

Fall, my lovely, into all that is mysterious, all that is dark, all that begs for the light.

Sensual, erotic, ecstatic, pained…your body rises to the call of the Goddess, awakening with each beat of your heart.

Dare to bare all that cannot be explained about you. Dare to leave the harvest King breathless and reaching for your naked hunger.

Dare to live a life less ordinary. Dare to shake convention from your bones.

You’re a woman for a rare type of man.

One who can hold your wicked sins in his hands and keep your secrets until the end of time.

One who will take your body and with his tongue, trace the witchery that runs within your veins.

The equinox is the time when night conquers the day and you sink deep into the well of your intentions.

Sink, sink…deeper you go, under the water, your breath suspended, your lungs filled with the oxygen of what you wrote so long ago upon the stars.

Deeper still, into the midnight of what scares you most, sink, my dear, let yourself drown.
