A Family Mabon

Image From Google

With Mabon coming in a little less than a month, I decided to share a few ideas with you, to help you incorporate your family into your Mabon celebrations.

1. Make a Family Altar - have your children collect acorns, pine cones, or draw Autumn leaves to use a decorations for you altar.

2. Get your Family cooking - get your spouse and children in the kitchen to help you cook your Mabon feast.

3. Make Gods Eyes - Here is a link that shows you how to make them - They are fun and easy.

4. Since Mabon is the "Witches Thanksgiving" before your meal go around the table and have each person say what they are thankful for.

5. Decorate your home for Autumn/Fall - get you families help making decorations with an Autumn theme.

These are just a few idea's I would love to here yours.

Do No Harm?

I know that most, if not all, of us have heard the Wiccan Rede, and we all know the most famous part of the rede:

An it harm none do what ye will

But what if someone is harming you, your family, or someone you love? Is it OK to retaliate? I say...

NO!!! I do not mean go out and deliberately harm anyone, but it is perfectly OK to protect yourself and your loved ones. Yes it is OK to stand up for yourself or even fight back when needed, just make sure you do it the right way.

For example, if a person is constantly bringing negativity into your life, home, or job space; simply light a candle(the color is up to you, choose a color that represents banishing to you) write on a small piece of paper what this person is doing and how you want to deal with it, like having them change their ways, or move, or get a job transfer, then put it under the candle and let the candle burn till it stops on its own. repeat if necessary. When your goal has been met, either burn the paper and bury it far away from your home or do what I do, just flush the negativity away :)

There are ways to handle these situations without messing up your Karma. Never, ever wish the person or their loved ones harm, because it will come back to you and bite you on the ass hard.

The most important thing is to THINK before you do anything magical; ask yourself "Is there a non-magical way to solve this?" And if not, how should you proceed? Never, ever act in the heat of the moment; nothing good will come of it.

I do have to say I have been spiteful a few times and wished a certain person uncontrollable itching in their nether regions, but they had it coming! LOL

What is your opinion of the Rede?

The Full Moon, A Good Read, and Schools Back In Session

Let me start with happy and blessed Full Moon, I hope it has been a magical day for all of you.

My View Tonight

A Good Magically Wicked Read

OK so over the past month I have been, reading the most magically wicked online series, It's written by the Goddess of all writers Magaly Guerrero of Pagan Culture. The series is called "Thorn In Red" and it is the first story to suck me in like this in a long time. Magaly is updating it once a week on Tuesdays and I literally start checking her blog at 12:01 am on Tuesday to see if it's been updated. If you like love dark fiction with a magical twist then this series is for you. Run, Don't walk to Magaly's blog and read this series.

Schools Back In Session and a Health Update

Monday was my witchletts first day of school for the 2013-2014 school year, and so far everyone is happy including me :P . 

I had my appointment with the cardiologist last week, and as we already knew I have a super fast heart rate. I have been put on a new medicine, a beta blocker and it is taking some getting used to (I sleep a lot, a whole lot) and have to have an echo cardiogram in a few days. I'm hoping that once my body adjust to this new medication that I will be back to blagging on a more regular basis, it may take a few weeks so please bear with me on this.

Again I hope all of you have a blessed Full Moon, and go read Magaly's series.

Happy Reading and Many Blessings

Mabon's Coming!!!!!

I know it's more than a month away but I am so excited that the next Sabbat is Mabon!!! You see Mabon is extra special to me in fact it's is my most sacred and favorite Sabbat, and I'd like to share with you the reasons why. 

Image found on Google
My Mabon story starts back in 2000, I was recently divorced and was at a point in my life where I was starting over and wanted to discover the parts of myself that I had to keep hidden for so long, one of those being my religious/spiritual beliefs. 
I knew for a long time that I had different views on religion and spiritually than my family and most of my friends, and I wanted to learn more about and explore that side of myself. I dove right in searching online, reading books and talking to a few close friends and I discovered that I was drawn to the path of being Pagan/Witch. Not long after this I decided to embark on a year and a day learning process, I did this on my own as I have always been a bit of a loaner.

I learned so much over that year, The Sabbats, Goddesses and Gods, correspondence and so on. As the end of my year and a day grew closer I had the most wonderful things going on, I had fallen in love and was getting married,celebrating my birthday and moving into a new house. I also was trying to decide how and when I would dedicate myself to my new path.
My Year and a day was over on Sept. 19th, to celebrate I got married to my best friend and then a few days later on Mabon I dedicated myself to walking to path of the Goddess & God. Since then Mabon has been my favorite Sabbat, I am so drawn to it, I can't explain how much it means to me. 
Every year on Mabon, my family and I have a feast of red beans & rice, with cornbread. We also make a lovely apple cake for dessert, and I do a small ritual. I truly do love Mabon, and can't wait for it's arrival.

Do you have a Sabbat that is special to you?
