Mabon Moments

My coven and I celebrated a lovely Mabon together. This is our first year working together. Some of us have worked together before and others of us are new to witchcraft and to each other. 

Mabon Apples

I planned a simple but meaningful ritual focused on gratitude, harvest, and turning towards the dark time of the year. As we get to know each other on a deeper level our rituals are becoming more and more impactful. 

Beautiful Grapes

We were lucky to spend the day together. We learned some about the season and some associated deities and we had a discussion about the coming full moon. We also talked some about the shadow work we are all engaged in. After ritual we ended our day with a feast and the wine was flowing. 

Ritual Moments

Starting tomorrow Samhain planning will be in full swing! I’m not complaining because I love planning for Samhain more than any other turn of the wheel. I am glad that my coven and I had a chance to share this happy celebration together before we turn our hearts towards Samhain. 

Five Pointed Star

I am grateful for my coven and everything we have shared together so far this year. We have grown closer and everyone has put in so much hard work. My hope for Samhain is that we will become even closer and continue to grow together even into the dark season of the year.

My hope for you is that you’ve had a wonderful harvest season so far and that it continues on into the Samhain season. Did you celebrate Mabon or Fall Equinox?

Celebrating Mabon

I started my Mabon celebrations today. My house smells amazing! This morning I went out before it got too hot and collected some things for an herbal/flower mix for Mabon offerings and ritual work. Some things I collected from my garden and others were found treasures.

I also baked some delicious apples and sweet potatoes! My kitchen smells amazing.

Tonight I plan to spend time with my hubby and dog, just soaking in the gratitude. So far my harvest has been a good one!

Fall Equinox Herb Bundles

I know I am a little early but I really felt an energy shift today. I decided to harvest some herbs and add them to others that I had, creating herb bundles. The house smells heavenly! It feels good to have a distraction from the pain I’m experiencing. I had all four wisdom teeth out and my mouth is not happy. Anyway, here are some pics of the herbs.
