Midway through Autumn!
Mabon is the second of three harvest festivals.
This is the time of equal day and equal night, the balance of light and dark,
and so at this time we have the chance to invite balance into our lives
as we move deeper into the descent to winter. Add this to the energy of Autumn, and as we see in our gardens, we also have the opportunity to see and enjoy our ‘harvest’, the fruits of our labours – literally and metaphorically.
Autumn sits in the west on the wheel of the year, and represents all the same energies and qualities of dusk, sunset, and the energy of early evening, the move toward and into the darkness.
The descent is happening. We move now into the yin part of the circle in the cycle of the seasons.
