Mabon: Balancing the Wheel at Autumn Equinox

Mabon, or Autumn Equinox, is one of the solar festivals on the Wiccan Wheel of the Year. In the Wicca calendar, this festival falls near September 21 in the Northern Hemisphere, and March 21 in the Southern Hemisphere.

Equinox means “equal night.” On this Wiccan Sabbat, day and night are equal forces, and now Darkness is beginning to gain the ascendancy.

As with all spiritual matters, we must ask: “What does this mean, symbolically?” Putting aside old superstition and association of “dark” with “evil,” what does Autumn Equinox tell us?
