Fall Bucket List

Fall is my absolutely favorite time of the year. It’s the season that I spend all of spring and summer dreaming about. There’s something magical about the way the trees shed their leaves, getting rid of old baggage as they begin their journey towards rebirth in the spring. I’ve always admired the transformation and I see humans replicated the process all the time. Letting go of people who don’t help us progress into our better selves, healing from old traumas. Our souls are a lot like those trees outside your window, sometimes barren, sometimes green and full of life. We are more tied in with nature than a lot of people realize, that’s why I make a list every season of everything I want to do to not only honor the corresponding holidays but also to honor my connection with the earth.

Fall is the season for two spiritual holidays. Mabon, the fall equinox and the celebration of the harvest season, and Samhain, which falls on Halloween night and symbolizes the end of the Celtic year. When making these lists, I make an effort to blend the two faiths practiced within my family, and it’s much easier than I expected it, as many of the reserved holidays have deep pagan roots!
