Colours - orange, brown, ochre, all colours of the season

Altar/Home Decorations - orange candles, fallen leaves, pine cones, acorns, chestnuts, wheat, nuts, hazelnuts, apples and anything that’s in season where you live (in Italy we have figs, peaches, plums and grapes)

Something to eat - apples, apple pie, hazelnut pie, almond cookies, anything listed above that is in season, honey, milk, coffee and hot tea

Things to do - set new goals, forgive someone who did you wrong, meditate, cook something, try to be kinder and nicer (the season for anger and revenge will come, but this time of the year it’s easier to find peace)

July – Demeter.

In ancient Greek mythology, Demeter is the goddess of the harvest and agriculture, who presided over grains and the fertility of the earth. Though Demeter is often described simply as the goddess of the harvest, she presided also over the sacred law, and the cycle of life and death

Kill Me In The Fall Time

Kill me in the Fall time;
A murder most divine.
Hang me from an acorn tree
Upon a pumpkin vine.

Hide me in the Autumn leaves,
For they are dead as well;
Crisp leaves became a masterpiece
Only when they fell.

Mask the smell with cider spice,
And harvest apple pie;
For in this way we celebrate
The season when things die.
