Juno and Autumnal Equinox

The above title isn't necessarily joined together for any reason, just want to write about a sweet dog named Juno and also that the autumnal equinox is upon us.

First about Juno, definition from googling the name;
JUNO: the wife of Jupiter, queen of heaven, and goddess of light, birth, women, and marriage.

Those of you who follow my fb page will have seen the story unfold recently that our grand-dog Juno needed to go to a new home. She has the best temperament, loves her humans with all she's worth and has a bunch of other amazing traits but we just weren't able to invest the time and energy in her that she deserved. So with mixed emotions we broke it to her original parents Dan and Tiff that she was going to a new home.

As it turns out our good friend Cindy went above and beyond the call of duty and found Kaitlyn and Jonathan. Juno gets a two night sleepover with Boonie at Drew and Cindy's then Tuesday will go home with her new parents. By the way Kaitlyn and Jonathan did I mention there's a no return policy? Thank you to all of you who were helpful in putting the word out, isn't social media amazing?

Next Autumnal Equinox, definition from wikipedia:
The holiday of the autumnal equinox, Mabon, is a Pagan ritual of thanksgiving for the fruits of the earth and a recognition of the need to share them to secure the blessings of the Goddess and the God during the coming winter months.

I think I'll add some items to my alter in honor of Mabon this year remembering that this time is when the darkness and light are equal, white candle and black candle that sort of thing. And maybe a picture of a beautiful queen with big brown eyes who looks good wearing pink and seemed to just want to always retrieve that ball no matter how many times you threw it.
