Hello everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful Harvest moon! This month's full moon was in Pisces, and that usually makes me feel a little crazy, but this year it was strangely calming. Last night, I cooked for Nick and my parents. It was great, I made oven fried chicken breasts and homemade broccoli mac and cheese (and brownies, but those were from a mix). I really enjoyed cooking for them, because I like to see people happy when they have good food. I really felt (and continue to feel) thankful for my family, and for the comfort and love that I have. It was a really great night, I felt so grounded and safe. Ironically, I never did look at the moon last night, which is kind of funny. It doesn't matter though, it was a good night, and I feel like I'm prepared for Mabon and the dark half of the year. Last year, I think I tried to push the darkness away (for some reason), and pined for spring the whole time. I enjoyed my spring and summer, but I guess I'm not dreading the fall this year.
I am going to go and harvest the last of my herbs in the next few days, and then dry them, and get ready for the cold. September's herb of the month is going to be coming up soon, this month it is Chamomile. I would love suggestions for October, so let me know if you want me to feature anything specific.
I hope that you feel blessed as the first leaves of autumn fall down from the trees.
