Our Resident Witch
A Second Harvest
Mabon is a celestially special time of year
Submitted by Sorcha Kincaid, Wiccan High Priestess, Chilliwack
or us in the Fraser Valley, it seems like summer is hanging in for the long haul. Certainly nothing to complain about after the June-uary we suffered through. However, autumn is around every corner it would seem.
Trees are turning colour, many crops are ready to eat, and there's a distinct chill to the air in the mornings. The busy growth and bounty of summer is drawing to a close and the second harvest is nigh. The nights are growing longer and the Equinox is here.
We take the time to thank Divinity (in Her many forms and names) for the bounty of the warm months that are behind us and for the food now harvested and stored for the cold months ahead.
Altars decorated for Mabon
might include herbs, flowers, or autumn leaves, nuts, and other
nature treasures, apples, and even breads. Magic involving apples,
grapes, and gourds are perfect at this time of year.
