Rumors Spread…The Cornfield Corn Stalkers

This Saturday September 22nd at precisely 9:54 PM, the autumn equinox will occur marking the starting point and seasonal change from to fall/autumn.

When we think about this time of year things like harvesting, Halloween, back to school, or even the start of football season may come to mind, but there’s something stranger going on as that beautiful autumn sun transitions from Virgo to Libra.

You probably aren’t aware of it, but there’s an old myth about those creepy cornfields here in Pennsylvania. Legend has it that people have been obtaining corn-colored hair and exceptional telepathic mental abilities by properly transferring a rare power into their bodies from earth dirt in the cornfields.

On the ritual side of this, these people arrive twenty-four hours prior to the precise time of the equinox, and dig a hole deep enough so that they’re standing in it calves deep. Basically, they plant themselves for twenty-four hours.

So, if you’re out and about Saturday night at 9:54 you may witness strange beings clawing their way out of the cornfields. Human? Perhaps. Alien? Possibly. No one really knows what this old myth will produce. We shall see.
