Mabon is near!!!! :D

Well it's been a while since I last posted (big shocker! lol) Since this is "A Witch's Tea and Anime", I think it's well past due time I blog about something Pagan in nature. And what better timing than now! Mabon is soon upon us.Mabon is the mid-harvest festival, and it is when we take a few moments to honor the changing seasons, and celebrate the second harvest. On or around September 21, for many Pagan and Wiccan traditions it is a time of giving thanks for the things we have, whether it is abundant crops or other blessings. It's only two days away, here in the Northern Hemisphere,( I believe Mabon is March 20-22 in the Southern Hemisphere. ^^).  I'm so excited, I even changed my altar today to suit the festivities. ^^ On my altar, I have my usual representations of the feminine and masculine energies of the universe, the elements (earth, air, fire, water), and self representation. Also my trusty Quarts cluster is perched on one of the corners charging. I have some potpourri (Colorado Mountain Breeze), stones, seeds, a little ceramic pumpkin top, leaves, pine cones, an apple, and some berries to symbolize this season of the harvest. 






"Depending on your individual spiritual path, there are many different ways you can celebrate Mabon, but typically the focus is on either the second harvest aspect, or the balance between light and dark."

Here is a great link if you'd like to learn more about Mabon and it's history and celebrations:

Here is a lovely video about Mabon: 


Also a beautiful Mabon song:


This Mabon I think I'll make some Witch's Brew along with some pumpkin soup and peanut butter brownies. ^^ 

While I'm showing videos here is a vid by the lovely energetic Flora on how to make Apple Mabon Bread!


And of her making Witch's brew! :


Well that's it for this post. In a few more days I might post pictures and things of how I spent Mabon this year and the treats I'll have made! ^^  Til' then Brightest Blessings All! :)
