Autumn Equinox 2020 ~ Pausing for Beauty

The moment that we migrate into Libra is one of my favorite times of the year. Maybe it’s because I’m Scorpio-born, but the crisp chill in the morning air shifts my soul to soften into what is more than any other season.Libra represents the time of day when we surrender the day to the evening, when dragonflies give way to bats and stars emerge to show us the way forward, despite the approaching darkness. It marks the year’s turn into Autumn, when nature winds down and prepares to rest. Venus-ruled Libra symbolizes harmony, balance and cooperation, and it gives us an opportunity to coexist in ways that align with love.

At a time when it’s challenging to remain in the grace of appreciation, I’m moved to share some of the gifts that Autumn’s arrival has blessed me with this year. These beings, great and small, take me into the space of now instantly, and I’m ever grateful that I’m blessed to live my life immersed in the wonder of Colorado’s natural world.
From watching bees and the the summer’s last hummingbirds share nectar from the same fuchsia plant, witnessing a Robin, Pygmy nuthatch and Townsend’s solitaire quench their thirst at our birdbath at the same time, surrendering our garden to passing wildlife, being surprised by a lone bull elk grazing at dawn, to marveling at a murder of crows as they soar over the backdrop of twilight – each moment I spend in nature fuels me to face yet another day of uncertainty on our planet.

May these moments allow us to pause and appreciate the beauty of life, and may we collectively emulate the harmony that exists in nature for the highest good of all relations.

With great blessings of love, always.
