Mabon is a very special holiday named after the Welsh God Mabon, son of Modron. This is a celebration of the Fall Equinox, a time of balance, with its counterpart in the southern hemisphere being Ostara or the Spring Equinox.
As we enter the dark half of the year, we give thanks to the waning Sun for its gifts throughout the year and celebrate a time of rest after the labour of the harvest. Let’s reflect back on how the hopes and aspirations of Imbolc and Ostara manifested during the summer.
Our Spells8 coven is celebrating Mabon, 2021 in many different ways, sharing:
