I published an essay in Eternal Haunted Summer Ezine about the Crone Goddess Hekate.  You can read the link here: http://eternalhauntedsummer.com/issues/autumn-equinox-2013/hekate-goddess-of-samhain/

Countdown to Mabon

Channeling

Merry meet all,

A busy week is ahead for us. The Wheel of the Year blew in rustic colourful leaves, pumpkins, and a crisp chill in the air. I love autumn equinox as much as any other Witch. So let’s get ready. 

Fall is the most magickal time of year. I squealed when I saw large pumpkins in the bins in the grocery store. I couldn’t help it. It was like a confirmation that fall had truly arrived. The Harvest Moon shines luminously on the 19th. Mabon occurs on September 22nd. We get a harvest moon and harvest celebration in one week. I plan to be prepared. I may still have to scoop out slugs from my pots but my small lawn is now spotted with fallen fiery leaves. The Sun enters Libra on the 22nd. The Libra sign represents balance, harmony and friendship. The autumn equinox is when day and night are divided equally. 

Now is a good time to give thanks for your herb garden and crops. You may also acknowledge that the earth is dying back and preparing itself for the cold harsh winter. The petals on the Black Eyed Susans and coneflower are dying back. The beautiful velvety seed heads mature on the stems. I plan to save some seeds from them to plant in the spring. 

Plan a nice meal with wine, cider, natural bread, squash or pumpkin soup, cheese, and grapes. Invite friends or your coven members over to share the meal. Remember to offer thanks to your deities of choice and to the fairy spirits in your garden who protected and helped your garden grow. Enjoy the magical bounty of Mabon.

Blessed Be,
