This is the time that the Goddess has entered the Crone aspect of the Triple Goddess. She is the ancient one, Earth mother, and wise one that may have words for us. She teaches us that some times to move on we need to let go. The God has become the Horned one, the stag God and the God of the wild hunt. He is the animals that we have to kill in order to survive a harsh winter as well the grains that we have harvested from the fields. This is the time that we can see the Earth dying. Leaves are falling from the tree, the crops are going brown, and land become sparse. This is another reason that this is seen as the time to honour those that have passed over, as we think about life, death and re-birth.
