Staying in Harmony with the Seasons: Autumn

According to Chinese Medicine, Autumn is the season of the Metal Element.
Metal is the element that likes organization. And Fall is the time when we begin organizing our lives for the winter that is soon to follow. We harvest the wonderful fall crops like pumpkins and yams, so that we can access earth's bounty in the middle of the cold season. We clear out the old crops, and begin to prepare the fields for the next season.
