Mabon – The Witch’s Thanksgiving


Mabon is the Sabbat where night and day are equal. This is the beginning of Fall and happens on or around September 21st. On Lammas, the plants were harvested, on Mabon the seeds are harvested to continue the cycle of death and rebirth. As such, it is often called the Second Harvest (for the seeds).

Mabon is a good time to cast spells of balance and harmony. It's also a time of change. Protection, wealth and prosperity spells are appropriate as well. Enjoy the fruits or our personal harvest… garden, family, job, accomplishments etc…

I'm DETERMINED to celebrate Mabon. I haven't celebrated a Sabbat since Imbolc! I know! How bad is that!! ugh. life.

Wealth and prosperity is my top priority right now so I will be casting a spell for that. I'm going to start making temporary Sabbat-linked altars too, so this will give me lots of Mabon ideas. I have a prosperity spell to try in one of my spiritual mags: I need to do my cuttings into my BoS and when I find it I'll share it here.

I am going to follow inspiration by Bella's apple post. I am going to do a dried apple wreath (with cinnamon of course) as thanks. I would love to decorate a broom too. That wouldn't be too hard.

Money Luck Spell

On the Wednesday of a new moon, place a cheque/bank book, some loose coins, a magnet and a piece of string on a table (or altar). Carve your name into the wax of a green candle along with the words "Money Luck" before placing it with the other items and lighting it. Then say x 7:
"Angel Goddess of luck and money, I direct my plea, the money I need is for good, And not for greed."
Then say: "So mote it be."
Let the candle burn down, then keep the magnet in your handbag (away from credit cards) and string in your purse. Be alert for an unexpected windfall.

To Attract The Money You Need
(This is what I'll be doing on Mabon, using the magic salt I'm making tonight - see the SF of shadows and I'll post it).
Take a green pen and write down the amount you need on a piece of green paper, then fold it twice. Open it again and sprinkle a pinch of magic salt on to your writing. Refold the paper, then say x 6 while holding it in your right hand:
"Money Lord, hear my plea, look my way, look my way. Bring your abundance to me, by the power of magic in me. Thank you, so mote it be."
Place the folded paper in your purse for at least 28 days and you should see an improvement in your cash flow.

Shell Wealth Charm

Take a shell and ask it to be your lucky charm, helping you increase your income in magical ways. Now place it in your purse until you see an increase in funds. (I'm charging my shell in the full moon as well - just to be sure!)

PLEASE NOTE These are things I found and thought I'd try from magazines. I am trying the shell charm from today/tomorrow and the middle spell on Mabon. So I can't say whether or not they work until after!!! But feel free to try them along with me!!!
