Mabon & How to Celebrate

Mabon is the autumn equinox! My favourite kind of equinox. This year Mabon starts on Wednesday 21st September and ends on Thursday September 29th. That's a lot of time to celebrate! Mabon is a celebration of balance. The days and nights are now equal again and it's time to give thanks for what the summer has brought us. It's also time to let go of anything you may be clinging on to.

How to Decorate your Altar

  • Acorns
  • Pinecones
  • Leaves
  • Feathers
  • Ten of Pentacles tarot card
  • Light green, brown, orange and red candles
  • Apple, cinnamon or spiced candles
  • Brown, red, orange, black ribbons or cloth
  • Amber, yellow agate, sapphire, quartz, citrine crystals

Non-Ritual Ways to Celebrate
  • Wear Mabon colours (see candles & ribbon colours above)
  • Take a walk in the woods, collect items for your altar
  • Make a gratitude list
  • Declutter and cleanse your home for winter
  • Have a feast of comforting autumnal produce (rye or corn bread, potatoes, root vegetables, meat or meat alternatives, nuts, apples, fruit cake)
  • Curl up with a spooky film or book and a spiced candle

Blessed be,
Saph x

  1. Hello my fellow pagan! Thank you for these wonderful ways to celebrate Mabon. I've added a few that I already didn't use into my BoS! We should definitely chat more about modern or eclectic paganism!
