The autumnal Equinox it is a time to celebrate Mabon as one of the 8th sabbaths which are based on the cycles of the sun. Mabon celebrates the second harvest and the start of preparation for the winter. It is time to respect the impending dark while paying respect to the light.Just a few of the fun things to do on this day is to take an orange and pierce it with cloves. This gives you an amazing aroma as well as being traditional items used during this festival. This is a time of gratitude and balance. A quick spell/prayer that can be done on this day is to take a piece of paper and write all of the things you are grateful for about your life, people in your life, and things that the Earth offers you. Take this piece of paper and fold it, get a second piece of paper, and on that write all the things that you’d like to remove from your life, be it a habit, person, or mindset. Then fold this piece of paper. Take a candle with the color of your choosing, salt the candle to purify this energy, place it in a fire protective burner, and put the two pieces of paper under the candle holder (note – if it doesn’t fit you may lay the paper beside it). Breathe a positive breath in saying “Positive in”, and exhale slowly saying “Negative out.” This allows you to center yourself with what you have written on your pieces of paper and to focus your intention into the candle while you strike the match to ignite the flame to invoke the magic in you.
Due to the overwhelming response from attendees we have closed the mabon circle at this time. We encourage you to embrace the energy of the fall equinox by releasing all things that are unhealthy physically, emotionally, intellectually, financially, and spiritually.
If you have already RSVP’d, we will be celebrating downstairs of Triangle Coffee Shop, also located at 714 Ninth Street. Let’s send out positive energy to mother earth for the bountiful harvest that we digest, and prepare ourselves for the winter months to reflect our shadow side. Workshop is downstairs in the Triangle Coffee Shop, also at 714 Ninth Street, from 7pm to 8:30pm by Lynn and Tom Swain on crystals and gemstones as well as metaphysical/magical knowledge.
If you are celebrating on your own, please feel free to let us know how it went either here or through our Facebook and Twitter pages, and be sure to post pictures of your event!
