Mabon, September 20-23

Mabon, or the Fall or Autumnal Equinox, celebrates the
end of harvest. Again we find ourselves with a day and
night equal. On this day, which will fall somewhere
between the dates above, the Sun again passes the
equator, this time on its trek south. At this time the
"chase of Lugh" ends with the felling of the last shaft of
grain. It is within this last shaft that Lugh has hidden,
but with His death, His sacrifice, we live through His
abundance. This is time for thanksgiving, evaluation and
meditation. Take stock in what you've received and
prepare for the dark days.
