An opportunity to explore the spiritual in a manner that all may come together and share.


Sep 20, 2008

It's Mabon!  And Mabon is one of the most powerful yet one of the least understood of all of the Sabbats.  Or, at least until you see how the mundane folks have re-arranged the calendar for their convenience.  Most countries have a Thanksgiving Day of some sort, many of them of that very name, but few are on Mabon.

Mabon is the second of the three harvest festivals.  Lammas was celebrated a while ago, and Samhain will follow soon enough.  And for now, we have Mabon!

Like all Sabbats, Mabon has its lessons for us to learn and take with us through the cycle of the year.  Like all Sabbats, Mabon has a contribution in each of the other Sabbats.

And especially, Mabon can help us to see why the year in a cycle is so important.  It teaches us some points that are missed in linear calendars in which the spirit of a holiday is pronounced dead the following day.

Blessed Be!
