If I had Mabon

Mabon is the second harvest and the Autumn equinox. This is a time of balance and a moment is taken to celebrate the oncoming darkness. We also give thanks to the departing sunlight as it has fed our crops. The Druids called this time Mea’n Fo’mhair and they honour the Green Man, the Forest God and gave libation to the trees. This can include cider, wines and herbs. Wiccans celebrate the changes of the Mother to Crone, and the God as he prepares for death and re-birth.

The Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia are all other names for this festival.  The Teutonic name, Winter Finding, spans a period of time from the Sabbath to Oct. 15th, Winter’s Night, which is the Norse New Year.  This is seen as a time to get out your glad-rags and spend time with loved ones in lavish settings as the time winds down to Samhain. It is time to wrap up any loose ends as we head for a time of rest and relaxation. Some of the symbols for this festival is wine, pine cones, acorns, apples, pomegranates, and ivy. My favourite smell at this time is passion-flower, but others include sage and Solomon’s seal.
