Sitting on the edge of the Autumn Equinox I find myself reflecting on the magic of Summer and how 3 months can slip by so quickly. It seems only last week I was celebrating the zenith of the Solstice sun, and now I am admiring the of turning leaves. Over the next few weeks, I will share tales I was too busy to tell during the hubbub & sunshine.

My summer was filled with unexpected, last-minute plans that placed me exactly where I needed to be at precisely the right time. It started with having nothing scheduled for the Summer Solstice. This alone was unusual as it was the first time in 22 years that I did not have ‘big plans’ for the holiday. For 20 years I hosted a Medieval Costume party on the Solstice, and last year I traveled to Mount Shasta in California on sacred pilgrimage; spending time in deep magic/connecting with one of the planets Chakras. The fact that this was the 22nd Solstice in the count did not slip past my Numerology-focused mind. I immediately began to wonder what was in store for this year’s Sabbat.
22 is a Master Number (master numbers…11, 22, 33, etc), meaning it vibrates at a higher frequency than other numbers. Often referred to as ‘the Master Builder’, it carries the potent energy of action & getting things done.
Sabbat- any of the 8 holy/sacred days in the pagan year connected to the turning of the seasons.
Shortly after this, I received a last-minute invite to the blessing of a Stone Circle that had just been completed in Springfield, Vermont…
