Mabon occurs on the Autumn Equinox, which falls on or
around September 21st. It is the completion of the
harvest begun at Lammas. The God prepares to leave His
physical body and begins His journey into renewal and
rebirth. Nature also declines, preparing itself for
winter, the time of rest. The Goddess nods in the
weakening Sun while feeling the presence of the God
in Her womb.
