reblog..Autumn Equinox: Mabon

In the northern hemisphere, the 2022 Autumn Equinox will occur Thursday, September 22nd at 6:03 p.m. Pacific Time

Mabon is the second harvest festival. A time to reap what you have sown, whether that means crops of food or metaphorically. Day and night hang in the balance as we begin our descent towards the cooler months, leaving the warmth behind us. We embrace the transition during this time of equal light and dark, of masculine and feminine, to find balance in all aspects of our lives.

A Time of Rest and Gratitude

Go outside and notice the shifts taking place. The leaves are beginning to change and the winds are shifting from warm breezes to cool gusts. Enjoy these last fleeting days of good weather. The humid heat is behind us and we can prepare to bring out the sweaters and wool socks soon. But for now we live in a liminal time. The weather now is the perfect compromise. I always feel relaxed and clear headed going into the Autumn season. It is my favorite time of year. It is a time to be thankful for all that surrounds you. To return gratitude to the earth in exchange for the bountiful nourishing fruits that she gives us so generously. We rest and reflect on what we have worked hard to bring to life, what inner gifts have blossomed since the Spring Equinox. While we also look towards the cool months of peace and rest with hope for new dormant seeds to be held in our hearts until springtime comes again.
