The apple, to me, is one of the ultimate Autumn symbols. Locally available in so many varieties it is often considered boring and as such neglected, but it is a fantastic fruit. And of course within it holds the magickal star, making it perfect for spell work, offerings, devotionals and pretty much any seasonal use you can think of.
Also, if there was ever any doubt as to the arrival of the season I can verify that I got caught in my first Autumnal downpour of the year today, lol. It was brief, but thoroughly soaking, just one of the many things I love about this season.
