Technically it's on time. Just.

Part eight of an eight part Pagan Festival project. I'ts over! It's over! It's over! At last!

Witch- :iconmizzd-stock:

"Autumn Equinox (also known as Mabon or Harvest Home) is celebrated when day and night are of equal duration before the descent into increasing darkness and is the final festival of the season of harvest.

In nature, the activity of the summer months slows down to the hibernation for the winter. For many Pagans, now is time to reflect on the past season.

It is also a time to recoginse that the balance of the year has changed, the wheel has turned and summer is now over.

Astrologers will recognise this as the date the sun enters the sign of Libra - the Scales of Balance.

This is one of the least celebrated of the Pagan festivals although a harvest festival may be held to thank the Goddess for giving enough food to last the winter."

Lovely work, it almost makes me think of a Tarot card design. Incedently Mabon's on my birthday; so is it biased that it makes me love this picture even more? XD

Aw you're a Mabon baby? I'm glad you like it!! Thank you! I've been toying with Tarot designs for a while, maybe one day.

Lol indeed, though it kind of sucked because it's also National Peace day and my hippie art teacher used to make me and my class stick cups through the fence at school to make peace signs in the blazing heat every year. And lol no problem, it's really good and I can't wait to see more of your work! ^-^

Lovely. I have a soft spot for Art Nouveau, and seeing it combined with the holidays - it's beautiful!

Lovely, just lovely. And happy Mabon to all Neopagans. The tears of Demeter are seen in the falling leaves as Persephone returns to the Underworld to reign beside Hades as his queen. :)
