Triple Goddess

Event source: Basic Calendar Events
12:00 AM
The maiden, mother, and crone was such a strong archetype in ancient Rome that there was an altar to the three Fates as a generic identity. The Romans recognized that there were linguistic similarities between themselves and the Greeks, and other barbarian peoples. In essence, they knew they shared common ancestries in language, and that this was a very ancient goddess that needed respect and worship.

It is a good time of year to meditate on the nature of fate and destiny, and the power (or lack thereof) of free choice and causality. Such philosophical considerations make good fodder for ritual time; it is also good to honor whatever version of the three Fates your group tend to notice on this day.

Autumnal Equinox (Mabon)

Event source: Basic Calendar Events
Wednesday, 20 September, 12:00 AM » Saturday, 23 September, 12:00 AM
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.
