Autumnal Equinox (Mabon)

The autumnal equinox is the day of equal daylight and nighttime that occurs within a window of time at the middle of September. The exact date shifts by one to three days each year, with a re-set occurring in leap years.

The day is associated in modern neo-Paganism with Mabon ap Modron, a figure from Welsh mythology, as a result of the work of Aidan Kelly in the 1970s.

For those who like to keep especially track of the equinoxes, it is important to consult an ephimerides table in order to be sure of the specific date and time.
