The Autumnal Equinox this year falls on 22nd of September 2010 in the Eastern Hemisphere. During this time the Sun moves in the northern hemisphere southwards crossing over the celestial equator.
This is also a holiday, known as Mabon, a Sabbath. A Sabbath is considered a high holy day or a day of power. Mabon is one of eight of the seasonal celebratory days in which Pagans and Wiccans celebrate on the wheel of the year.
Mabon is seen as the second harvest of the year and it is also when gardens are in full bloom and full of the bounty of nature.
It is thought of as the ‘Pagan Thanksgiving’ where they celebrate the passing of the year and in turn give thanks for everything they have been given.
