The Autumn Equinox - Celtic Ireland

The autumnal equinox is the time when the day and night are of equal length. This was a solar festival of great importance to the ancient Irish, who used the sky as both clock and calendar.

The Druids call this celebration, Mea'n Fo'mhair, and honour the The Green Man, the God of the Forest. People offered ciders, wines, herbs and fertiliser at the time. As an equinox celebration, Mabon focuses on balance because this is one of the few times throughout the year that true balance can be observed in nature.

Falling on September 21st 2021, it is considered a time of balance & mysteries. It is a time to honour the Spirit World. It is when we stop and relax and enjoy what we have created through our personal harvests, whether they be from tending our gardens, caraeers, families, or any projects we have been putting effort into. Take time this season to reflect and on all you have with gratitude and look forward for more to come!
