The Sabbats: Mabon

Mabon, the autumn equinox, is the second Wiccan harvest festival and occurs at or around September 21st. It is associated with the harvesting of corn and the completion of the harvest. After this night of balance, darkness will begin to overcome the light. This is considered, by many Wiccans, the official turning point to the dark of the year. This sabbat was named for Mabon, the Welsh God who symbolized the male fertilizing principle. Rituals which enact the elderly aspects of both the Goddess and the God are performed at this sabbat.

The Sabbats in order: Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas, Mabon.
