Mabon / Autumnal equinox
September 21 – 29, The holiday of the autumnal equinox, Mabon. It’s the Feast of Thanksgiving for the fruits of the earth and a recognition of the need to share them to secure the blessings during the coming winter months.
Mabon is considered a time of balance, it is when we stop and relax and enjoy the fruits of our personal labor, whether they be from toiling in our gardens, working at our jobs or raising our families. Decide what it is you want to weave into your life in the upcoming year and start planning for those things.
Prints will be available soon. Please contact me if you are interested and I will be sure to add your name to the notification list when they are ready.
