Mabon is the Autumn Equinox which is the time of year that divides the day and night equally. Take a moment to offer gratitude towards the waning sunlight as well as impending darkness. A time to celebrate the aging Goddess in preparation for death and re-birth. A time for harvesting of this year’s crops, we may also offer libations such as fertilizer, wines, ciders and herbs to trees. Take some time to finish old business and appreciate the fruits of all of your harvests while we venture into the time of year for resting, reflection and rejuvenation.
Prepare a special altar and ceremony to celebrate this magical time of year with some of the correspondences listed below:
Symbolism & Symbols: Harvest, Balance, Equality; grains, acorns, seeds, vines, pomegranates, apples, wine, horn of plenty
Colors: gold, brown, burgundy, orange, red
Incense & Fragrance: sage & myrrh
Stones & Gems: agate (yellow), lapis lazuli, saphire
Prayers & Affirmations: harmony, balance, protection & prosperity
Blessings to you!
