Merry Meet my friends…I hope that you all had a Blessed Mabon/Autumn Equinox/Ostara and Harvest Moon! It was a gorgeous night…the Moon?…well She was amazing and beautiful. Red Orange as She rose in the sky…then lightening in color with an orange aura around Her….then higher She climbed and larger and brighter She shone…it was glorious! Here in ohio it was HOT and muggy that night but I spent time outside to receive her energy..it was magickal indeed.
About 11:00 I went to my altar. I had prepared it days earlier. I now added some wine and some oatmeal cookies for myself and as an offering. I centered and grounded and felt myself giving my heart, mind and soul over to the magick I was about to be a part of.
The Circle was cast, the Lord and Lady invited in…the elements called on….and I felt myself wrapped in love and peace. On my altar was a black candle and a white candle. I lit them ..and spoke the words..of a Balance Spell…to balance my life as the Earth was balancing day and night..as summer turns to Autumn and light turns to dark. As I raised my voice…I felt the love of my sisters and their voices, from all corners of the Earth, raise with mine. I felt strong and powerful and the energy and love was amazing. After the ritual, I drank wine and ate my cookie and lingered in the amazing atmosphere that had been created. I had never felt anything so strong as that night. I truly felt my sisters there with me, the Goddess approving and loving what had been created. When the goose bumps calmed down and I felt like I couldn’t sit quietly anymore….I released the elements, Thanked Goddess and God for helping me in my ritual and took down my circle.
After pacing around a bit, I realized Iwas too pumped up to sleep….so I took another trip outside to do a happy dance under the Harvest Moon! It was a perfect night in every way! and then……I got on facebook and expressed my joy along with my sisters and others who were like minded that night!! Ahhhh I love being a Witch!
Since then, I have done my best to ensure that I find that balance in my life…I have alot going on in my personal life, but so far, I have not been overwhelmed..I have still found time for my craft, time with my family, time for myself (well a little bit) and keeping up with my home and the mundane things we all have to do everyday!
I shared this for one reason…to show that magick indeed exists, that sisters can share an amazing night together though separate, and that taking the time to really celebrate the Moon and the Sabbats can make a huge difference in your everyday life. I wish you all joy and happiness and Blessings,
