MabonRelative Deities: Mabon, Modron, Persephone, Demeter
Relative Herbs: Marigold, sunflower, hibiscus, rose petals, myrrh

Mabon [ma’-bon] is the Welsh God, the 'Great Sun'. The tale states that Mabon was captured from the Great Mother (Modron) and taken to the Underworld to prevent Him from shining His light upon the world. However, Mabon was clever and returned to fertilize the Earth. This is also the Fall Equinox, the first day of Autumn and the second period of the harvest. This is also the time to celebrate the bounty of Mother Earth and give Her thanks for Her blessings She bestows upon us. This is often called the 'Witches Thanksgiving'. We will plan lavish feasts and gratefully enjoy the bounty. This is also the time to remember our ancestors and those who have passed on. Therefore, we give thanks for what we are given, what we are and for the future gifts to come. Additionally, we give thanks to the yet born. We should reflect on all we receive (small and big).
