The Autumn Equinox – 23rd September 2019
The Autumn Equinox this year falls on Monday 23rd September. It is the day in which the daytime hours are the equal length as the night time hours.
The northern hemisphere tilts slightly away from the sun, which makes the daytime shorter and the temperatures cooler. This will carry on right up until the Winter Solstice.
Meantime, the leaves are turning autumnal brown, whilst the skies are rolling grey. Time to start digging out the warmer clothes!
How is the Autumn Equinox celebrated?
Stonehenge in the UK is a popular destination for those looking to acknowledge the Autumn Equinox. It is popular among Pagans and Druids. The equinox is known as Mabon to the Pagan beliefs, or Alban Elfed which marks a Thanksgiving for the harvest.
Among some rural communities it is customary for them to drink Burdock or Dandelion cordials in preparation for the upcoming Autumn season. There is also an urban legend that involves balancing an egg! It was believed to be possible on the day of the equinox – Alas, it is not!
