Fall- its that time of year when the warmth of the sun starts fading, the yang energy subsiding as the yin energy of darkness, cold, stillness,  increases.  There is a slowing down, an introspection as we draw inwards both physically and emotionally. In autumn we bid farewell to the abundance of summer and start preparing for the hibernation, or hunkering down, that is to come.
