Summers during the year distinguished two periods. A summer period beginning with the Spring Equinox and the winter period beginning with the Autumn Equinox. At the time of the autumnal equinox, the Sun shines on the Earth perpendicularly to the equator, so that the inhabitants of the equator have the Sun just above the head at the right midnight.

Celtic feast:
It is nothing but autumn equinox, it can also be translated as “light of water”. It is the first day of the autumn, which symbolized that the summer with all its strength was coming to an end, and that more and more power is cold and dark. Some have seen the birth of deities and others as his death. It is the last holiday in the year … so unless the new year is celebrated, which is celebrated at the turn of the year, so it interferes with both parts of the year.

The arrival of the autumn is, according to the old myths, referred to as the time when, in the northern hemisphere, the god shines until the spring equinox disappears in the dark underground – he dies in time. This happens when, as early as the summer solstice, he suffered from the eternal opponent, the ruler of darkness, fatal injuries.

We live in the time of preparation for a long winter and rest. Astrologers and masters recommend that every man seek his own balance and inner harmony at this time of year. It is a period of babies (or Indian) summer, in the air it can be seen light webs or “poppers” of poplars. Days and nights are again as long, but the days tend to shorten. The sunny god is getting old and is getting ready to go, and the goddess mother feels that her baby grows up in her lone. Nature is also preparing for winter sleep, its strength obviously weak, offering the last fruits. This period also symbolizes the relationship of mother and daughter. It is a time when it was used to sacrifice to the poles, the tree, and the spirit of the home, and also the time of the folk magic, from the healing spells to the magic spells.
