Solar Equinox 2016 (election autumn)

September 22, 2016

midsummer allegory

This is the point in the year where day and night are equal in length; the nights will grow ever longer until midwinter here in the northern hemisphere.  The United States will get out to vote their hopes (and fears) after a final harried month of advertising, wrapped up by the final harvest festival, Samhain.

Those of us who honour the lunar calendar have already celebrated a week ago at the Harvest Moon. Animals were blessed, bounty was gathered to feast, pilgrimages made to sacred waters.

Cast your vote for living or dying now.
