Mabon (Autumn Equinox)


One of the Lesser Sabbats, this is the Fall Equinox. It is completion of the harvest begun at Lughnassad. Day and night are equal, and it is a time of balance. The God prepares to travel through the Otherworld towards renewal and rebirth. It is a time of contemplating what things in our own personal lives we have grown and harvested during the year.

Focus of Mabon:

Mabon is considered a time of the Mysteries. It is a time to honor Aging Deities and the Spirit World. Considered a time of balance, it is when we stop and relax and enjoy the fruits of our personal harvests

It is the drawing to and of family as we prepare for the winding down of the year at Samhain. It is a time to finish old business as we ready for a period of rest, relaxation, and reflection.

Spellworkings should be those of Protection, prosperity, security, and self-confidence
