Mabon is a holiday celebrated by Pagans and Witches to honour the autumn equinox. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is celebrated around the 21st of March (exact 21 March 2023 at 7.24 am). Mabon marks the year's second harvest and is considered a time of balance when day and night are equal in length. Traditionally, it is a time to give thanks for the season's bounty and reflect on all that we have been gifted. It is also a celebration of peace and harmony and an opportunity to show gratitude to those we love. Mabon rituals often involve:
- Gathering with friends and family.
- Making offerings to the gods or spirits.
- Honouring those who have passed.
Celebrating Mabon is a beautiful way to connect with nature and the cycles of life. Whether gathering with loved ones or taking a moment for yourself, take some time to honour the blessed Mabon and the autumn equinox.
The autumn equinox marks the transition from one season to the next, reminding us that change is inevitable. Embrace the change as we flow into winter. Celebrate Mabon and honour this moment of balance with intention, mindfulness, and an open heart. Rejoice in abundance, peace, and harmony as you enter a new season with fresh hope and possibilities. Enjoy the fruits of your labour as you prepare to move into the darker winter months.
