Mabon celebrates the autumn equinox, which falls around September 21st each year. It is time acknowledge mixed feelings and seek inner balance. Even as modern people, we breathe the same air that our ancestors held in their lungs. We touch the same earth and water that they touched.
Learning about ancient beliefs and archetypes makes me feel more connected to the season, and it can help us understand where some of our own long standing traditions come from. Did you ever wonder why we kiss under the mistletoe or why there are twelve days of Christmas?
