Welcoming Autumn: Happy Mabon!

Posted in Mabon, Nature Things, Wiccan Things tagged , at 12:14 pm by Babs

Mabon celebrates the Autumnal Equinox.  This is the time of the year when night and day are equal and represents balance.  It is thought that the Goddess and the God have equal power for one brief moment in the cycle of the year. 

Mabon is named after a Welsh God who symbolized the male fertilizing principle in the Welsh myths.  While my bloodlines run with Welsh heritage I also have Barvarian roots.  This time of year, Oktoberfest is celebrated in Germany, Austria and now in many countries around the world.  But on it’s native lands these celebrations were once festivals for the wine harvest where this equinox was a major Sabbat.

However you celebrate the season and the sabbat I encourage you to go out and enjoy nature in balance, enjoy the harvest, enjoy some wine.  Enjoy life!
