Celebrate the darkness at Mabon

Our northern hemisphere readers are enjoying fall weather, and the Sabbat of Mabon. Demeter and Persephone are strongly connected to the time of the Autumn Equinox. When Hades abducted Persephone, it set in motion a chain of events that eventually led to the earth falling into darkness each winter. This is the time of the Dark Mother, the Crone aspect of the triple goddess. The goddess is bearing this time not a basket of flowers, but a sickle and scythe. She is prepared to reap what has been sown. The earth dies a little each day, and we must embrace this slow descent into dark before we can truly appreciate the light that will return in a few months. This ritual celebrates the dark season of the year: Honoring the Dark Mother at Mabon
