A bit about Mabon

StinkbugMabon is one of three harvests, celebrating the first fruits of Second Harvest, with some history with the Welsh god, Mabon ap Modron. .

 

Mabon history and activities

For my group, we celebrate with a potluck. There’s something very magical about gathering with foods from each member to share. We often get introduced to new dishes, or special foods made special for us. The very act of cooking for others, I feel, also touches upon sharing magick with one another in a strong, primordial way.

This time of the year also marks when the Goddess descends into the Underworld. Pomegranates became symbolic, as well as making offerings are often popular in group. Meditation and learning of your Self is important. Its also a time to shed what must be left behind as we prepare for the darkening days. You might decide to clear out stuff in your kitchen, or focus on getting rid of a bad habit.

Mabon Pomegranate spell for Wisdom

Offerings, however, do not mean you’re doing any blood sacrifice. You might choose to promise the gods  you will do some activity that might please them, such as volunteering at a soup kitchen, or giving money to charity.

Spell stars-(video)  made from applesauce and cinnamon. They smell wonderful!

Offering stones- to be left once you take something from nature.

Giving thanks. As with any harvest festival, its important to take the time to be grateful of what you have in your life.

Celebrate by making a blessing wreath (or garland of gratitude) with writing all the blessing you have in your life and hanging it somewhere in your house.

Make gifts for friends and family to let them know you cherish the relationship.
