This Scorpio New Moon is about using the voice correctly and planning, journaling, practicing on what we want to create for the month. Scorpio is about being in touch with feelings that we hide from ourselves and others. It is deep introspection allowing change for your personal know-how list of things to do. We aren’t to wallow in sentimentality but really seek what would make any situation better. We find solace and solutions to our mental and physical health, others health, and well-being. Deep contemplation gives answers to blocks and allows us to know about negative delusion. We can delude ourselves in all sorts of traps. But we can change it easily, mostly through adjustments of how we treat ourselves and others. Contemplating what change needs to happen. This introspection gives us a plan to put into effect. Scorpio brings excitement, surprises and changes, they will be fast coming with no warning. #tarasutphen #tarasinsight #meditation #hypnotherapist #readings Taraappointment@gmail.com

Autumn Equinox, 2nd Harvest, September 20/21/22 September 22, 2018 (Almanac)
Mabon, (pronounced MAY-bun, MAY-bone, MAH-boon, or MAH-bawn) is the Autumn Equinox. The Autumn Equinox divides the day and night equally, and we all take a moment to pay our respects to the impending dark. We also give thanks to the waning sunlight, as we store our harvest of this year’s crops. The Druids call this celebration, Mea’n Fo’mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth.
Various other names for this Lesser Wiccan Sabbat are The Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia. The Teutonic name, Winter Finding, spans a period of time from the Sabbat to Oct. 15th, Winter’s Night, which is the Norse New Year.
At this festival it is appropriate to wear all of your finery and dine and celebrate in a lavish setting. It is the drawing to and of family as we prepare for the winding down of the year at Samhain. It is a time to finish old business as we ready for a period of rest, relaxation, and reflection.
