Mabon - Autumn Equinox
The text on the back of this card is as follows:
Major events in the Celtic year are celebrated by Eight Festivals, four of which record stages of the Earth’s revolution around the Sun; Summer and Winter solstices, when the hours of daylight are at their longest and shortest, and the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes, when hours of daylight and darkness are exactly equal. Four Cross-quarter festivals fall half-way between the solar festivals and their celebration marks the start of each season,
Much imagery associated with these festivals is both spiritual and natural as the progress of the seasons reflects the life cycles of those who live on this ancient land.
If you seek them out, Earth spirits may share their joy and magic with you as you celebrate life’s mysteries within the Eight Festivals.
Autumn Equinox, when the hours of day and night are exactly equal at the end of the light half of the year, and the waning half moon descends towards darkness. For six months the heat of summer has brought life and burgeoning growth to orchard and hedgerow; now the season’s culmination brings abundance and fruitful plenty. Insects gorge on over-ripe fruit, too copious to collect and store, while children feast with berry stained fingers on wayside fruits.
