Ways To Celebrate The Autumn Equinox

The Autumn Equinox is on Saturday, September 23rd! I just love getting aligned with the energy of this season.

Ways to Celebrate the Autumn Equinox.

You can do these over the weekend or over the next few months.

  • Declutter and shift decor by changing your pillows, artwork, plates, dishtowels, and more.


  • Enjoy some fall food over the next week to start tapping into the grounding energy of fall like apples, pumpkins, or any root vegetables.
  • Take a soothing bath or shower and tend to yourself after with body oils, a face mask, perfume, and any of your favorite self-care goodies.
  • Do some yoga poses and twists to clear out summer and bring in fall energy. You might like to try this short practice.
  • Seasonal tarot or oracle card reading. Ask your guides and your intuition, “What do I need to know this season?” or “How do I best approach this season?”
  • Reflect back on your summer, the lessons you learned, and the memories you made. Are you making any changes in your life that you want to bring into fall? What do you want your autumn season to look like?

What are some of your favorite ways to celebrate the Autumn Season?

Enjoy the blessings of autumn!

Create a Fall and Halloween Altar

Ooh! I just love this time of year and this is the perfect time to gather some Halloween decorations and autumn-related supplies to place on your altar. If you like, you can clear off your whole altar and start fresh. Otherwise, move your altar items around to accommodate your autumn-themed pieces.

Create a Fall and Halloween Altar

  • Changing the candles to orange, black, or purple.
  • Adding small pumpkins and gourds or jack-o-lanterns.
  • Placing crystals that are orange and black and brown like carnelian, citrine, black tourmaline, smoky quartz, and tiger’s eye.
  • Adding scented candles or grounding essential oils to your diffuser like Cedarwood or Pumpkin Spice.
  • Burning loose incense like Mugwort.
  • Pulling tarot or oracle cards related to the season to display and meditate on.

Have fun with this!

You want this to be a place you will sit in front of and feel connected to the season.

I love to start with fall items, then add Halloween items, and then take those away and add ore fall items starting November 1st.

An Autumn Playlist

When we change from summer to fall, I love to change just about everything in my home and life, including the music I listen to.

I created an Autumn Playlist last year to listen to under the Full Harvest Moon and my whole family loved listening to it all season.

It is also perfect for just chilling out, taking a bath, gathering with friends, or spending time at your altar. Enjoy!

Roasted Pumpkin Seed Recipe

Do you have pumpkin seeds left over from carving jack-o-lanterns? This simple recipe from my sister-in-law will have you devouring them!

  • Rinse and dry seeds thoroughly
  • Toss with a teaspoon of oil.
  • Sprinkle and toss with garlic, chili powder, salt & pepper.
  • Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, tossing every 5 min. 
  • Make sure they are as dry as possible before seasoning, so they crisped up better.
  • Spray seeds with an oil spray before the last 2 minutes to prevent dryness.
