The September Equinox is always a beautiful, natural phenomenon worthy of our recognition and honor. On this particular holiday, we cry and we laugh.
Mabon puts us in touch with the transformational elements of life here on Earth. This is a bittersweet stop on the ever-turning Wheel of the Year.
The Autumn Equinox /Mabon ritual carries the wisdom of the ages and hopefully divine inspiration, which will give sacred life and meaning to the many challenges and changes we face, and to the light and shadows around us.
We, are the priestesses (all females) and priests (all males) paint little blue tears on our faces. Some of us literally cry, morning the gradual disappearance of the Sun, but then we immediately rejoice and thank the Mother for giving birth to the Son, for holding him in Her womb, and for nurturing him.
Purpose: Rituals in general, help to reconnect us with a heightened sense of spirituality. By participating we become more fluent in communing with experiences that often defy understanding in the physical world. In a ritual we can balance reality or our position in everyday society with Nature. We might discover the need for a change in our lives, or we might convey a passionate commitment to protect our environment. Rituals are insightful, empathetic, and enjoyable.
