As we get deeper into the month with Persephone, we must understand the cycle we are beginning and formulate our purpose for entering the cycle. In the northern hemisphere, we are turning towards the dark part of the year. We are harvesting, abundant, and experiencing gratitude. However, we also feel the coming of the return of the dark. That is where she awaits us, the Dark Goddess.
Perhaps, where you are, the leaves have started changing color or the wind is carrying them softly to rest upon the ground (or it is still miserably hot – but it is coming!).
The release (or movement) down and in we see taking place upon the earth mimics the cycle we are entering. The purpose and intention for this cycle is one that is personal to each of us, but the incense is helpful for owning it.

One of the things that I always seem to forget is to make enough for the entire month, so make sure to make enough for the Black Sacred Candle and possibly for other things you may want to get creative with!
