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:
Bless this wine with love
Infuse it with the power
to see within myself so
I may accept the season
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.
