Autumn Equinox and Mabon Rituals

 
 Gratitude Dance with Rainbow & Apple Tree Devas in Avalon.

Gratitude Dance with Rainbow & Apple Tree Devas in Avalon.

 

This Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere is exact at 6:54pm PDT on September 22nd and Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere is exact on September 23 at 11:54am in Australia.


At this special time, day and night are of equal length as Mother Earth takes a sacred pause in Her rotation around the Sun. On The Wheel of the Year, this Holy Day in the Northern Hemisphere is celebrated as Mabon (pronounced in many different ways May-bun, May-boon, May-bawn). Mabon is considered a time of the Great Mysteries. It is a time to honour the Sun Gods and Goddesses, the Harvest, and the Spirit World. 


This is a time of balance, to slow down and reflect, enjoy the bounty of our harvests (whether this be from your gardens, your friendships and family, your work or your personal achievements) and also to prepare for the next season by welcoming the gifts of the darkness to release, let go, give away, share and shed (whether physically, emotionally, mentally or all the above).

This is a potent moment to honour the light and the shadow within your Womb, Heart & Mind. To honour the human part of you and the spirit part of you… the masculine and the feminine. For, to live fully Whole and integrated, we must embody both polarities. This is the power and alchemy of which all creation is based.

Allow yourself to be joy-filled, sorrowful, happy, frustrated and sad all at once. All of these emotions have deep wisdom, insight and lessons for you at this time when you inquire with curiosity and acceptance. Give reverence to yourself for how far and deep you have journeyed. Honour your pain, shadow, and challenges. Honour your pleasure, light and triumphs. And those of others. For every step of your path has led you to this moment now.


We offer thanks and honour to the Goddess as she moves from Mother to Crone, and to the Green Man of giving gratitude for the fortitude of the Sun, as we now reap the gifts and abundance, prosperity and fruitful ways of being.


May we welcome the power of this Holy Day in our personal lives and as the needed change for world. May we offer to one another the bounty of love in our hearts, and offer the gifts of respect, kindness, honour and peace to all those we come across. May we do what we can to contribute our energy in gratitude to the Earth, to the Spirit World and to all of humanity.

Lughnasadh Aquarius Full Moon Eclipse

FullSizeRender-3.jpeg

The Full Blood Moon is exact in Aquarius at 1:20 pm PDT on July 27th. And 1 minute later comes the Total Lunar Eclipse at 1:21 pm PDT. This is the longest Lunar Eclipse of the century!

It is also Lunar Lughnasadh, (pronounced Loog-NAS-ah), also known as Lammas. This High Holy Day on the Wheel of the Year, half way between Summer Solstice and Autumnal Equinox, is a sacred Harvest Festival of Gratitude and Abundance (in the Gregorian calendar, it is honoured on August 2nd). The energy and celebration is alive through the weeks after the peak of this eclipse. 

As the intensity of the Eclipse is present, it is both seen in the electromagnetic field of the earth, and felt in the electromagnetic field of our own bodies. This is simultaneously a time of fruition, integration, reflection and release. Both celebration and completion energy are dancing within and all around us. We are personally, and therefore collectively clearing, out the old and making way to receive and Embody more light (aka love, awareness, consciousness) to enter. DNA upgrading is happening!

At this time of fruition, integration and reflection, take time to honour the seeds you've planted and celebrate this time of the first Harvest and your creative powers. 

This Full Moon is also known as the Blessing Moon or King's Moon.

 

Blessing Moon Attributes

  • Tarot: The Emperor
  • Herbs: honeysuckle, lemon balm, jasmine
  • Colors: green, ocean blues, coral
  • Stones: Ocean Jasper, Lepidolite, Aquarmarine
  • Animals: crab, turtle, dolphin, whale
  • Goddesses: Juno, Hera, Sulis, Nephthys
  • Medicine: Peak of Summer; relaxed energy; preparing;  dream-work; Lughnasadh

 

Lunar Lughnasadh Eclipse Ritual

Please set aside 30 minutes for this interactive Ritual Meditation. Is best done on the Earth, in Nature if possible, in your bare feet on the day of the eclipse. However, it can also be done the day before or after.

After the Ritual, you are welcome to join us in our Goddess Rising Sisterhood Facebook Group to share all that you are releasing, amplifying, celebrating and declaring.

 

More Eclipse Ritual Suggestions

  • Water Bearer Gratitude:  List all the things you are grateful for in your life from this year in how you serve and share your gifts (truly acknowledge yourself), place this in the moonlight (outside or window) to attract more experiences to be grateful for. Then, write down all the things you are ready to release and either burn them or offer them to a body of water.
  • Empress Dance: Put on music you love and offer your heart through dance in devotion to how you wish to serve and express your gifts in the world.
  • Dream Speak: Pay close attention to your dreams and visions in the full moon. Record them in a journal and speak them out loud. Only by writing them down or speaking them will the sometimes subtle (or not so subtle) meaning and message be revealed to you.
  • Water Bearer Moon Bathe: Get into the magic of the moonlight and absorb her luminous, activating, soul stirring and healing balm. Look to the moon and speak the visions that you see for yourself and for the planet.
  • Gem Stone Activation Meditation: Place any of the above gemstones (after they have been charged in the moonlight) or ones you are currently working with, on your brow point/third eye either during the full moon or in the sun light to activate your visionary center of intuition and receive the messages that you are ready for. Breathe fully and deeply as you lie down and relax. 
  • Journal Questions: What is an Empress? How does she serve? How can I embody the Archetype of Empress in my own life? What is a Water Bearer? How am I that? What am I ready to release so that I can serve more fully on my dharmic path? What gifts am I ready to shine?
  • Remember: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal and activation. Place an apple and glass of water in the moonlight and have it for a 'Visionary Water Bearer' breakfast the next morning.
  • Commune: Gather in an intentional way with loved ones and do any of the above together and create your own. Now can be a powerful time to be with the energy of the collective.

 

Self-Care Tips This Eclipse Season

(and to continue into August)

  • Drink extra water
  • Walk on the earth barefoot
  •  Swim in living water (ocean, steam, river)
  • Take Baths with salt and clay
  • Practice alternate nostril breathing
  • Take extra naps and rest
  • Wear head coverings (hats or shawls) to keep your energy sealed within

Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of and after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period. Blessings to you in this wondrous and magical time.

This Full Moon in Sagittarius takes place at 7:19 am PDT on May 29th. This is the first full moon since Uranus went into Taurus for this next 8 year cycle.

This Sagittarius full moon comes at a time of significant transition for the collective as we feel into our deepest dreams and ideals (the target), by activating our devotional embodiment practices (the arrow), held with the wisdom and truth in our hearts (the bow). 

Making clear and honest choices towards our greatest dreams is highlighted right now. The blue flame of the Sag moon invites us into deeper Presence so that we can explore important paths/options/choices to support our direction from our bodies intuitive guidance, rather than solely from the logical mind.  

This is also a time of celebration for all that is ripe in your life, whether this is related to an attitude of gratitude, completing a job well done or for embodying uplifting qualities, symbolized by the Honey Moon. Therefore, it is important to reward or honour yourself in some way and remain in a state of contentment. Go on and celebrate yourself and this amazing life!

 

Ritual Suggestions

  • Gratitude Speak: Speak aloud to the Full Moon, or write in your journal 11 things you are grateful for. If writing, place in the moonlight overnight. This practice brings to light more experiences for you to be grateful for. 
  • Dream Illumination & Sacred Release Journal: What dreams is your soul illuminating for you at this time? What sacred desires are being called into the light? What visions do you have for yourself? How can you clarify and amplify your dreams? Why are they meaningful and full of purpose? What is between you and your dreams? What is stopping you from living them (focusing on your own patterns, thought forms, behaviors, beliefs)? Burn this paper now for sacred release in a fire or with candles outside in the full moon light. Dance / speak/ move/ sound it out.  After this and you feel more space within you, write down and speak aloud to the moon how you now choose to commit and devote yourself to your dreams. How you can take action, receive support and rest into the divine timing of these dreams.
  • Devotional Heart: How does your heart want to be expressed/nurtured at this time? What embodiment practices inspire you right now? Dance, yoga, walking, chi gong, archery? Activities that bring you out of your mind and into your body are where it's at when done with the intention of celebrating and honouring yourself and your growing dreams. Trying doing them in the moonlight.
  • Elemental Nourishment: Sag Moon is an ideal time for you to get in the Natural World and the Elements. Visit your favorite tree, park, river, ocean or lake etc... Let the wild and sacred medicine of nature seep into your body and your breath. Let the mind go and rest into Earth and practice the art of spaciousness by simply Being. 
  • Remember: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal and activation. Place an apple and glass of water in the moonlight and have it for a 'Moon Wisdom' breakfast the next morning.
  • Commune: Gather in an intentional way with loved ones and do any of the above together and create your own. Now can be a powerful time to be with the energy of the collective.

 

Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of and after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period. Blessings to you in this wondrous and magical time.
