Situated in the cardinal direction of the west, water is our winding and healing teacher that spirals us into the underworld in the Autumn months. Water connects deeply with the archetype of the Goddess calling us down and in to clear and heal in preparation for our descent into the colder months of stillness, integration, and regeneration.

Addressing our relationship to death and dying is one way to do this. Addressing how we care for... Continue Reading
The Autumn Equinox, which usually falls between September 20-23 in the Northern Hemisphere, shifts us westward on our seasonal wheel. The west corresponds to the element of water in most mystical and earth-based spiritual practices. It signals a time to start moving inward after the busyness and activity of the spring and summer months.

Pisces often brings up themes of liminal spaces and dreamscapes. As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces is a sign that defines a threshold, or a simultaneous point of arrival and departure, an invitation to detach from the physical world.

Thresholds mark the ending of one area and the beginning of another. Doorways and windows are examples of these kinds of spaces. There can, of course, be internal or otherworldly thresholds too. ...
