Mabon is the 2nd of the 3 Harvest Festivals & is celebrated during the Autumn Equinox. Also known as 'The Witch's Thanksgiving,' it is a time to feast upon the last of the Harvest season, as we prepare for the cold of Winter.
It is a time to give thanks for the fruits of earth & ground our energy as we recharge our 'spiritual batteries' & grow closer to the darkness & thinning veil that separates our world & the spirit world.
The Autumn Equinox occurs around March 21st for the Southern Hemisphere & September 21st- 23rd for the Northern Hemisphere. It is a day of equilibrium, where day and night are equal and as movie forward, the warmth is behind us, the cold lies ahead & we must take a moment to have gratitude for the abundance of crops that have provided us with food through the summer, which will now do the same throughout the Winter.
Mabon celebrations usually include a feast similar to thanksgiving that varies depending upon what food is available during the autumn season. Respect for mother nature is a common theme during many celebrations and rituals.
Mabon is widely known as a time for harvesting. Some pagans also conduct intentions or spells to focus upon one particular outcome while others celebrate the beauty of life itself!
Many Pagans, witches, and spiritual practitioners also wish blessings for those who need them during this time.
Rituals to honour the new cycle of nature
It’s a wonderful time to let go of things that no longer serve, letting go of the broken or old stuff and decluttering the house to create space for the winter storage.
Create An Altar
Create a sacred space to honour the energies of the approaching fall.
Incorporating the magical elements of fire, water, air, and earth during the Autumn Equinox is a fabulous way to connect to Nature.
Decorate the altar with dried leaves, pine cones, whole walnut, some crystals like the citrine or the marium stone, yellow jasper, petrified wood, or bringing in cinnamon sticks in the altar space.
Clear the energy by burning some incense, sage or palo santo.
Light a candle and can offer some fruits/ vegetables like apples or pumpkin at the altar along with some water as an offering.
As I created my alter 2 days back I had a guidance to keep my clear quartz tower and as I opened my box full of crystals I also found a pine cone which i had placed safely bubble wrapped when we were moving to out new house, and my pine cone went to the altar at the right time.
Make a list of all the things that you have received during the summer, the projects that have come to the fruition, the things/goals you could achieve.
Or simply all things you are grateful for in your life.
As summer comes to a close, is there anything else you’d like to complete before the Winter cold and darkness sets in?
What is it that you desire to release and let go?
What are your new intentions for the coming winter, how are you getting prepared for it?
