Mabon Blessings

The wheel of the year turns again with summer giving way to autumn tomorrow. Mabon (aka the Autumn Equinox), is the second of the three harvest festivals and a time of celebration and thanksgiving for the earth’s abundance. It’s also a time of balance since day and night are equal in length, and a great opportunity for personal introspection when we can reflect on our blessings and achievements of the past year and how we can bring more balance into our lives.

I always feel a little melancholic at Mabon, knowing that the dank, dark winter is fast approaching. I guess I’m a summer bunny at heart, ceaselessly yearning for the heat of the sun and long, light-filled days!
