persephone's descent (autumnal equinox)
Autumn equinox occurs sometime between September 20 and 23. Like Ostara, the day and night are of equal length. At this time, the season of harvest is coming to a conclusion as the earth begins to prepare for winter. Mythologically, this is when Persephone must return to the underworld. Demeter, saddened by this, brings winter to the land until her daughter returns at Ostara.
