Moon spells of Mabon

Merry meet all,

The Harvest Moon reigns over the autumn skies tonight. This is a good time to casting spells and thanking the Moon Goddess for blessing your gardens with her powerful lunar energy. Remember to thank the faeries and your chosen deities for their aid with your gardens. Mabon is a time of gratitude and balance.

If you are searching for some inspiration on how to celebrate this magical esbat, I have several posts that include rituals and spells that you can try tonight. You may have to scroll to find them but it is well worth the effort.

Mabon begins this weekend. Decorate your altar with a Mabon theme for this Full Moon. Use apples, corn, gourds, pumpkins, and grapevines on your altar. Add a stag figurine for the Horned God and a seashell to represent the Goddess. Use an altar cloth that represents the harvest of Mabon. You can buy patterned cotton fabric at a nearby fabric store. Clear your altar space, wash the floor, vacuum and sweep to rid of dust. This is a major Sabbat. Once your altar area is clean, you are free to dress your altar for some Mabon magick!!

Remember to cleanse your crystals, smudge your house and property, and use silver and white candles in your ritual. Silver and white correspond with the Full Moon. This Harvest Moon, the light is brighter tonight which allows the farmers a longer time to glean their bounty of crops from the fields.

I wish you all a Blessed Full Moon!!

Blessings,

Lady Spiderwitch

Spring Frost

Merry Meet All,

The May long weekend is coming up. The final frost of the cold season is coming too. If you have planted any tender herbs or flowers in your garden recently, there is still a risk of frost. Gather your cloches and/ or long sheets or tarps and secure them over your plants to protect them.

Here in the Maritimes, it is freezing cold and I could see my breath this morning. The plants that are already growing in gardens now are hardy and can bear the cold. Tend to your tender plants that are outside to ensure they survive the cold.

Good luck gardening!!
Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch )O(
