day 16: Season
I live in Venezuela, and therefore, in the tropics; so I live in a perennial summer/spring mix where everything is always blooming and it's always too hot and humid. I generally don't mind it, but I admit I wish I could experience seasonal change (ans I'd love to see the snow). But of all the seasons, my favorite is autumn/fall.
I only got to experience autumn once, back when I went to Spain a long time ago; but I loved it. The colors, the feelings in the air: everything just felt so... serene. And I'm a huge halloween fanboy even though it isn't really celebrated here. So, as a small representation, here are a few autumn leaves (some of mom's little treasures from my dad's travels) and the Autumn Court and some of the Fairy Holiday cards from the Fairy Ring Oracle: all of these faeries are shown in the book to be emotional, passionate yet capable of great serenity, and usually have stories regarding romance, family or the mercurial, changing side of the Fair Folk: understandable, given Autumn is the season of decay, change and harvest, and associated with Water. The last three cards are the Fairy Holidays with ties to this season: Lammas/Lughnasadh (traditionally celebrated in Summer, but marking the time when people start thinking about Autumn, and the beginning of the harvest season); Herfest/Mabon (the autumnal equinox) and Samhain (the end of the harvest season, the start of darkness). #witchcraft #witch #faerie #fairies #FairyRingOracleDeck #witchblr #malewitch #witchesofinstagram #witchesoftumblr #witchtumblr #autumn #fall #autumnleaves
