Mabon –September 21st-23rd
The pre-winter equinox happens when the sun crosses the equator on its evident venture southward, and we experience a day and a night that are of equivalent length of time. Up until Mabon, the hours of sunshine have been more excellent than the hours from sunset to sunrise. Yet from now on, the opposite holds accurate.
Mabon marks the center of harvest, it is a period of equivalent day and equivalent night, and for the minute nature is in equalization. It is a period to harvest what you have sown, of expressing appreciation for the harvest and the abundance the Earth furnishes. For fulfilling up old ventures and plans and planting the seeds for new undertakings or a change in lifestyle. Mabon is a period of festival and parity.
This is the opportunity to think back on the previous year, as well as your existence, and to get ready for what’s to come. In the musicality of the year, Mabon is a period of rest and festival, after the diligent work of assembling the products.¬†The death of Mabon is inexorable and The Sun God ought to be grieved. We too, must recollect that all things should arrive at a close. So the Sun God travels into the terrains of winter and into the Goddess’ cherishing arms, however endings are a great opportunity to praise our triumphs, thank our selves and the individuals who helped us, and tune in a critical position of life.
