Hail and welcome to the dark half of the year, with the second of the harvest festivals, Mabon.
A time of rich colours, the last bursts of Summers glory fading into russets and reds, oranges and browns. The Autumn Equinox is also known as the Harvest Home or Harvest Tide. The middle of the harvest season, a time for balance in all things. A time to finish up new projects and begin planning for new things, and for the coming of the winter season. A time of warm days and chill nights, a time of acceptance that the land is slowly falling into sleep. Try focussing on food that represents this season, apples, squash and pumpkins, bread and grains. Offer a little back to the land in acknowledgement of what it has given you this year.
