Happy Autumnal Equinox

A somewhat belated Autumnal Equinoctial greeting to you all, and a few words of prayer from the Occult Ireland Autumnal Equinox Ceremony, which was performed on Sunday gone:

At this Autumnal Equinox, when there again arises a moment of balance, when night and day are equal, when there is no dominance of darkness or light, let us turn inward and focus upon the Osirian energies that are now in motion.

Let us turn inward and meditate on the properties of Libra, the sign of the Scales, most symbolic of balance, and most pertinent to us now.

Let us turn inward and think upon the contraction of energies, to the inward-turning spiral of spiritual growth.

Let us turn inward and muse upon the catabolic process, the breaking down of things in order to expose the primal matter hidden within.

Instil within us the qualities of balance, of temperance, of the reconciliation of opposites, and be to us a fervent reminder of the straight and narrow path between the Pillars of Mercy and Severity, the two opposing forces. Bring balance to our lives, that we might bring balance to the world.

Amen.
