The Autumnal Equinox does NOT have a "name" on the "WHEEL of the YEAR", because it's the ancient annual Holy Day of the Earth, the Day of Sacred cycles, Sacred teachings, Harmony with the Elder Beings, Gods, Goddess, Universal forces, etc.
The act of #SILENCE (henceforth, no name is appointed to this Sacred day) is the ancient respect for, and tradition given to, this sacred day, to listen to: the creatures of the earth, the natural forces of life, and the universe surrounding us.
The symbols found around the world, for this day are: #Pyramids, #Obelisk, #Monoliths, the Wheel of the Year, the #Zodiac, Mystical or Magical Concepts of Time, the Tree, a lone single flame, the Phoenix, the Apple, and the ALTAR (as seen in the Magician card) to name the more significant symbols, pertaining to this sacred day.
In ancient Craft traditions, it is known as the day, "the Circle sings" and Witches' listen to the mystical song unveiled, when casting their circles, to receive guidance, wisdom, healing, and foresight of the winter ahead.
The photo accompanying this post, is of the #Snake of #light seen on the #Great #Pyramid of #Kukulkan, in #Chichen Itza on the Autumn Equinox.
Now the altering of this ancient tradition, can be viewed as a selfish or a misguided act, (The name Mabon was coined by Aidan Kelly around 1970, as a reference to #Mabon ap Modron, a character from Welsh mythology.) and what the overall effect it gives modern culture, is yet to be seen.
In the Visconti Cube of Space, the ANGEL (Judgement) card is appointed to "ABOVE" (silence) for the Autumnal Equinox, and the MOON card is appointed to "BELOW" (sacred cycles) position of the Autumnal Equinox.
Blessed Be !
