The magickal Pagan harvest festival, Mabon, will fall on September 22nd this year. Mabon symbolizes the Autumn Equinox, where hours of day and night are equal. Following today, the evening will become longer as we move forward in the direction of winter.
Similar to most Sabbats that will be celebrated later in the year, Mabon is in connection with reflection and releasing that which does not help us any longer. It is an opportunity to cast off the old and get ready for your new beginnings.
The colors of Mabon are just as rich and warming as the colors of autumn such as deep red, energetic orange, radiant gold, and rich brown. Make sure to incorporate all the fall abundances in addition to late summer fruits and vegetables such as pumpkins, squashes, corn, nuts and berries. It marks the start of fall. With the way we have all become so busy today, here are a few ideas to honor Mabon.
Decorate your home for this fall. Most enjoy creating altars with yellow and/or orange candle and autumn leaves. I live in the South, so there goes leaves changing and I’m not much of an altar person. I do though work at a craft store and the decorations are numerous. After tweaking it for this year, I hung my harvest wreath on our door on Mabon.
You can take a walk through nature and gather any attractive, natural resources you come across, whether they are pine cones, Colored leaves, rocks, acorns, etc. Be sure you bring a bag to collect your treasures! The best part is that you can leave it up as a fall decoration.
With it being the equinox, Mabon is a time to find the balance in your life. This makes it a good day to contemplate balance. Despite the fact, we tend to think instantly of our time restrictions as a place to find balance. When was the last time you balanced your spiritual and mystical centers? Do you know where you are out of balance in your life? Perhaps you are working too hard. Are there things that need help in a relationship? It’s time to find your balance.
Mabon designates the final gathering. What you’ve sown has now come to maturity. This makes it a great time to meditate on everything you have received and are grateful for. take a notebook and write it down. Remember the feelings that they gave you.
Meditate on what you want to release. The nights are becoming longer and this makes Mabon a good time to contemplate what you need to let go of what no longer serves you. Even if you are not ready to let it go yet, just identify it. Sit down with your notebook, journal or even a piece of paper, become centered and silent, and write down the issues you’d like to let go.
