This is me:
Or rather, it will be me as the Summer continues to wane, the equinoctial point pushes temperatures lower and the moist green drains out of the leaves. I really hate Summer to be quite frank. Spring, tolerable. Winter, slightly more tolerable. Summer, abysmal. But Autumn......Aaaaahhhtumn.
It's one of two times a year when the Sun crosses the equator, and the day and night are of equal length. This perfect symmetry makes for one very happy Gemini. At the autumnal equinox, the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator, which I also find contributory to my giddy frame of mind.
Give me cloud cover, pumpkin harvests, migrating birds, knitted things and boots to wear, overly hot and long baths with good books, orange and brown and black.....mmmm, If you'll excuse me I have to go draw a bath and whip up some cinnamon spice cocoa. My copy of Twilight might not survive the Winter - the spine is holding up and at least I haven't dropped it in the tub (yet). The OCD Gemini twin got her way and the third run-through is well under way. Self control be damned; this is MY time of year.
