A few little things to do for the Autumn Equinox

🍁 Bake apples filled with butter and cinnamon.

🍁 Craft decorations for your front door out of colored leaves, pine cones, nuts and acorns.

🍁 Honor the birds and small animals in the wilderness or by your home by making a bird feeder filled with seeds and grain.

🍁 Fill a basket with pine cones, fruits, colorful dried leaves, wheat, acorns, and fallen pine branches and leave it by your altar or door.

🍁 Make some Mabon soup using carrots, onions, potatoes, radishes, corn, pumpkins and other autumn vegetables.

🍁 Have a home cooked meal with a group of friends and loved ones to celebrate the abundance of the season.

🍁 Scatter offerings in harvested fields.

🍁 Do a thanksgiving circle, offering thanks as you face each direction:

For home, finances, and physical health face North
For gifts of knowledge face East
For accomplishments in career and hobbies face South
For relationships face West
For spiritual insights and messages the Center.

🍁 Make wine.

🍁 Make a dried flowers/leaves mobile. ( I’m currently working on this and I can’t wait to show you when it’s finished)

🍁 Take a walk through nature and spend time appreciating your surroundings.

🍁 Decrorate your home/room with autumn themed things, candles that smell like autumn, flowers of bright orange and yellow, tartan throws and pillows, fairy lights and orange/yellow/red crystals, autumn wreaths etc.

🍁 Meditate.

🍁 Spend time with people that bring a positive engery into your life.

🍁 Make magic apple cider.

This is me. Sniffing interesting smells, walking through nature and climbing gracefully over things.

And this is my face while my mum is raging over ticks after she removed the 6th one out of my fur. She said I have a master degree in tick-gathering.

I don’t really understand what she means. I mean…I’m just sticking my head in the long grass or jump majestically into it to catch invisible mice.

Back at home mum looked for more little friends and found 18 in total. She said that she looks forward to the winter.

Haikyuu!! Valentine's Day HCs
  • <p> <b>KageHina:</b> Hinata tries and fails to make an aesthetically pleasing chocolate for Kageyama. He's in tears as he gives it to Kageyama because it looks so strange, but Kageyama honestly only cares about how amazing the chocolate tastes. Hinata kisses Kageyama using the excuse that he wanted to taste his own chocolate.<p/><b>AsaNoya:</b> Nishinoya takes Asahi to a dinner date, wearing a sophisticated suit. He keeps trying to act cute in front of Asahi to make him all flustered, and believe me, it works. Little kids in the restaurant start to ask them what sort of relationship they have, and Asahi pulls out a cute ring saying, "He's my beautiful husband!" Nishinoya almost short-circuits.<p/><b>DaiSuga:</b> Suga makes chocolates for everybody in the team, but he has a special one just for Daichi. He keeps telling Daichi terrible puns "I'll be your Suga cube" and Daichi just sighs at him. Suga purposefully leaves chocolate on his cheek so that Daichi can kiss him. Mama is very crafty.<p/><b>TsukkiYama:</b> They go shopping together and Yamaguchi won't stop with the public displays of affection. Tsukishima is embarrassed at first, but he eventually goes along with it. Yamaguchi takes Tsukishima to the CD shop where they pick out albums and headphones for each other, before they exchange chocolates. Yamaguchi won't stop telling Tsukishima how cool he is, which leads to a very red-faced Tsukki.<p/><b>IwaOi:</b> Neither of them knew where to go so Oikawa just invites himself to Iwaizumi's place. Oikawa's chocolates look so perfect that Iwaizumi suspects that he bought them and didn't make them by hand, which leads to Oikawa pouting at him. Iwaizumi tells him he's trying way too hard to be cute, but kisses him anyway.<p/><b>YakuLev:</b> Lev drags Yaku to the amusement park and points to height limits just to piss him off. He tries not to go on too many scary rides, but he doesn't try hard enough and he ends up giving Yaku a piggyback. Lev takes Yaku to his house and feeds him his mother's warm Borscht and his handmade chocolates. His kisses tasted like beetroot because of this.<p/><b>UkaTake:</b> Ukai brings Takeda to watch a romantic movie, except that it wasn't really a romantic movie. At all. In fact, was Tarzan because there was a mistake with the tickets. Takeda still enjoys the movie, though. Takeda gives Ukai the ear piercing accessory he wanted and they go to a chocolate café to eat.<p/><b>HanaMatsu:</b> Matsukawa gives Hanamaki shop-bought profiteroles, because he attempted to make some at home and his mother banned him from the kitchen for the next three months after that. They both have a movie marathon at Matsukawa's house while snacking on the profiteroles, and have a dance-off to Disney songs.<p/><b>BokuAka:</b> Akaashi has been dropping hints that he wants to go on a date with Bokuto, but he completely forgets about the fact that it's Valentine's Day until Akaashi reminds him casually. Bokuto starts to panic because he feels like it's his job to make Akaashi happy, and literally every place they can think of is fully booked. They settle on taking a walk through nature while talking about how much they love each other.<p/><b>KuroKen:</b> Kuroo has everything planned out to perfection. They start off the day by riding a hot-air balloon, which was surprisingly well-liked by Kenma. They go on a small shopping spree and before Kenma gets tired, Kuroo takes him home and the two chill out at each other's houses for the rest of the day. Lots of affectionate bodily contact and hugs, mostly initiated by Kuroo.<p/></p>

Okay yoga. or any form of mindful exercise (i.e. body building, walking through nature), can be really healthy for you, like any mindfulness meditation. If you’re struggling at the start you will get better after each and every time and make it work better for your body.

yoga is gentle and you can do it from your bed, so it can be especially helpful and versatile to people bearing with depression

Space is alluring, powerful, vast, and mysterious. There is so much out there and all of us space enthusiasts look up to the sky and soak up as much as we can. 

Working with space isn’t the same as working with the elements. We can’t touch the stars or planets, all we can do is look to the sky and feel it in our hearts and souls. As we watch the skies we gather as much information as we can to become closer to our universe.

I love working with cosmic witchcraft. It makes me feel like I am apart of something larger, that I am not just this little insignificant nothing on our planet. I feel powerful as if I have the whole world in the palm of my hands.

Here are some ways that I use my cosmic witchcraft, note, this is a long post.

So my high schools IB class was like 8 people, myself included and all but one of us were in IB biology. My biology teacher was pretty fuckin awesome in general but sometimes she would just give up on teaching for the class period and take us on “nature walks” through the maintenance trail in the woods behind the school, down the street, and back up the schools driveway. She also let my friend make root beer for his IA that turned out to actually have alcohol in it.
