Mabon – Fall Equinox
The Wheel of the Year continues to turn with the great Quarter Sabbat Mabon, also known as Witch’s Thanksgiving.
The high point of the Sun’s arc over The Wheel is done and with that completion, we see the fullness of The Harvest come to fruition at Mabon.
What Is Mabon?
We have reached Fall Equinox, the Quarter-Day festival marking the half way point between Summer and Winter Solstice. Also known as Second Harvest and Witch’s Thanksgiving, at Mabon we continue to explore harvest season through the cornucopia of symbols and festivals found at this time of year.
The work of Mabon season focuses on shifting from the drive and ambition of Summer into the fulfillment and resolution of Autumn. Many Pagans see a form of the Goddess known as The Mother giving birth to the massive harvests being pulled in all around the northern hemisphere. Learn ways to help yourself and your community prepare for the Underworld journey of Winter.
But the work isn’t done after one night! We’ll take a look at what we can expect for the coming 6-7 weeks of Lammas season, learn how you can observe this time of abundance for yourself or with your community, and get ready to Do The Work.
