Personal Mabon Ritual
By Kathryn Campbell

Decorate your altar with autumn fruits and berries. Have a chalice of wine, a yellow candle and a black candle on your altar. Sit or stand before your altar and focus on this time of Balance. Feel the Sun’s energy waning. Know that, from this day forward, the darkness will dominate the light. Pick up the yellow candle and hold it between your palms. Take three deep breaths. Visualize the Sun God in all his glory. When you have a clear visualization, light the candle and say:

"Lord of Light, thank you for your bright energy. Thank you for lighting my way, opening my heart and filling me with life. I honor you now and always."

Pick up the chalice of wine. Hold it high above you and say:

"Holy Mother, bless this wine with love Infuse it with the power to see within myself so I may accept the season of change."

Bring the chalice down to heart level. Feel the blessings of the Goddess upon you. Take a long, slow drink from the chalice feeling yourself saturated with Her blessing. Return the chalice to the altar. Pick up the black candle and hold it between your palms. Take three deep breaths. Visualize the Dark Lord, the Master Hunter whose time to walk the Earth has come. When you have a clear visualization, light the candle from the yellow candle and say:

"Lord of the Underworld, I welcome you as teacher of the mysteries. Open my heart to the blessings of darkness so I may understand my purpose."

Allow the candles to burn together as you feel the balance of light and dark within you. Know that life is filled with purpose and welcome the darkness which is the great teacher that allows you to appreciate the light. Say farewell to the light, knowing that it shines in the darkness where you will find your true self. Go outside and pour the wine out on the Earth in honor of the aging Goddess in her crone aspect and also as a symbolic sacrifice representing the blood of the God.
