Solar Term:white dew (白露)


  In the solar term white dew, you can find dew drops on leaves in the morning. This is because the water drops gather at night to crystallise into water. In ancient time, of the five elements, autumn is considered metal, the colour is white. Thus the name white dew. 
When entering this solar term, nights become chilly, autumn is truly here. Remember to carry an extra coat around to prevent from getting the cold. 
 The aboriginal group ami have their autumn festival in this season. This is a time when they put on their traditional clothes and gather in circles to dance. A once in a year harvest festival worth watching! 

Before you search up this festival, take the time to meditate today! Solar terms are a good time to meditate, as the energies are stronger on this day.
