Traditionally, the cycle of nature is more than just the changing of seasons. Each season is linked to a color, emotion, elements, and meaning. Autumn is associated with the color white – white candles are sometimes lit to be the light against the growing darkness of the season (or shorter days). It’s linked with emotions of sadness as trees are losing their leaves and becoming bare. It’s also linked with courage and change because growth and blooming is just around the corner. Autumn’s element is metal and a reminder of the cold days coming. Autumn is also associated with the direction west – the direction of dreams, vision, and creativity.
Autumn is a great season of perspective and looking to the future.
