Autumn Equinox/Mabon 5 cards

Autumn Equinox/Mabon 5 cards




As we enter the Autumn Equinox we see the leaves changing from green to golden,, we watch them start to fall and shed, bringing with it a time of change.
  Equinoxes have a very special energy that marks a time of balance where day and night are equal. The autumn equinox is one of the most powerful energy apexes of the entire year. It sets everything in motion and starts the point of transcendence of the shadow.


As this change occurs we ourselves start to bring in our harvest, celebrate our abundance and appreciate what we have around us. We think about slowing down as we prepare for winter.

A time where day and night are in balance before night takes over day
A new cycle approaches bringing with it a new chapter. The full moon in Pisces  and Sun in Libra will enhance this energy, making it more powerful and pertinent
 
I love the change of seasons, the colours of the trees, the change in the air. This year again has been an unusual one and summer seemed short and sparing. But nature has a way of bringing everything into balance and showing us that it is ok to let things go at this time of year especially
 

Mabon
 
Taken from the Goddess & the Green man website

This festival is now named after the the God of Welsh mythology, Mabon. He is the Child of Light and the son of the Earth Mother Goddess, Modron. In truth, there is little evidence that Mabon was celebrated in Celtic countries and the term Mabon was applied as recently as the 1970’s. All part of our reconstructed Paganism…


Here is another point of perfect balance on the journey through the Wheel of the Year, its counterpart being Ostara or the Spring Equinox. Night and day are again of equal length and in perfect equilibrium – dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer, in balance. But we are again on the cusp of transition and from now the year now begins to wane and from this moment darkness begins to defeat the light. The cycle of the natural world is moving towards completion, the Sun’s power is waning and from now on the nights grow longer and the days are are shorter and cooler. The sap of trees returns back to their roots deep in the earth, changing the green of summer to the fire of autumn, to the flaming reds, oranges and golds. We are returning to the dark from whence we came.


 This is the Second Harvest, the Fruit Harvest and the Great Feast of Thanksgiving.The Goddess is radiant as Harvest Queen and the God finally dies with His gift of pure love with the cutting of the last grain. He will return. As the grain harvest is safely gathered in from Lammas and reaches completion, we enjoy the abundance of fruit and vegetables at this time. It is time to thank the waning Sun for the wealth of harvest bestowed upon us. It sometimes seems that each Festival requires the making of celebration and the giving of thanks, but this really is so, each turn of the Wheel brings both inner and outer gifts and insights. 


So Mabon is a celebration and also a time of rest after the labour of harvest. In terms of life path it is the moment of reaping what you have sown, time to look at the hopes and aspirations of Imbolc and Ostara and reflect on how they have manifested.It is time to complete projects, to clear out and let go that which is no longer wanted or needed as we prepare for descent, so that the winter can offer a time for reflection and peace. And it is time to plant seeds of new ideas and hopes which will lie dormant but nourished in the dark, until the return of Spring.
