Join us for our open celebration of the Autumnal Equinox, known in the Craft as Mabon! Mabon is a sort of Wiccan Thanksgiving… We look to the fruits of our lives and ask the gods to continue to bless us with prosperity, abundance, and joy. It is at this time of year that the falling God of the grain is slain as His spirit makes it’s way through the land of death. The Lady, stirring with loneliness and love, descends to the Underworld to learn of the mysteries of life, death, and rebirth. We thank the Lady for giving humanity a glimpse of these mysteries in the display of the browning leaves all around us.
As in the last few years, we’ll be joined by our friends from san Fhàsach (https://www.meetup.com/san-Fhasach-In-the-Wilderness/) at the cabin campgrounds in Prince William Forest. Firefly Initiates are welcome to join us in the forest on Friday afternoon; general members are welcome to come by on Saturday afternoon, stay for our rituals and the pot luck feast, and either stay or go depending on their schedules. Space is limited in the cabins and there will be a registration fee to offset the cost of the cabin reservations.
