"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit"

Quote by: Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are two equinoxes annually, vernal and autumnal, marking the beginning of spring and fall. They are opposite for the northern and southern hemispheres. The autumnal equinox happens every year on September 22, 23, or 24, when the sun crosses the celestial equator. In China the September equinox is celebrated during the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival. This year’s harvest moon on the evening of September 27 is a super moon that will also display a rare total lunar eclipse. The last time a total lunar eclipse coincided with a supermoon happened was in 1982, and it won’t happen again until 2033! - '12 things to know about the autumnal equinox'. Read More...

Miso, tempeh, natto and soy sauce (If traditionally brewed) fall under this category.' (see full article in link below)
