Autumn Equinox Rites and Rituals for a Hedgewitch

Another liminal time, where darkness and light are equal, this is the perfect opportunity to take stock of what you have harvested from your
efforts, and what still needs to be achieved before Samhain and the coming of winter.

After this, you will need to let go, even as the autumn leaves fall from the trees.

Go to a deciduous tree, and watch as its leaves change colour.

Know that this is the winding down of the year, and that your life is reflected in the season.

You have worked hard, and now the magic appears even as the bright colours of autumn turn the woodland into golden and fiery hues, reflecting and honouring the last of the bright sunshine of the warmer days.

Keep a vigil on a tree, and weave a spell of release into a specific leaf, something which you need to let go of in order to move forward. Return to that tree every day and note when that specific leaf has fallen.

The magic has been set in motion.

Now you must let go as the tree has let go of the leaf, to allow the past to fall away, to nourish you and inform you even as you dream it all up
