Mabon Harvest Swap

Excerpted from http://wicca.com/celtic/akasha/mabon.htm

Autumn Equinox, 2nd Harvest, September 21st

"Mabon, (pronounced MAY-bun, MAY-bone, MAH-boon, or MAH-bawn) is the Autumn Equinox. The Autumn Equinox divides the day and night equally, and we all take a moment to pay our respects to the impending dark. We also give thanks to the waning sunlight, as we store our harvest of this year's crops. The Druids call this celebration, Mea'n Fo'mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth.

Various other names for this Lesser Wiccan Sabbat are The Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia. The Teutonic name, Winter Finding, spans a period of time from the Sabbat to Oct. 15th, Winter's Night, which is the Norse New Year.

At this festival it is appropriate to wear all of your finery and dine and celebrate in a lavish setting. It is the drawing to and of family as we prepare for the winding down of the year at Samhain. It is a time to finish old business as we ready for a period of rest, relaxation, and reflection."

To celebrate the balance of light/dark and the Second Harvest, we are focusing on crafting a 3 pt swap with at least one item intended for altar or travel altar use. Examples could be mini-shrines, altar cloths, offering containers, candle holders, etc.

See previous swaps to get a sense of size. One could craft 1 large item, 1 med and small items, or 3 small items with freedom to go larger based on partner agreement.

Hey all,

Send in your questionnaires *cough-Wulf,  cough-Spazgirl* so I can officially add you!

I am trying to add people daily but if you don't hear back immediately don't spazz....I'll probably be working 12+ hours daily for a bit to get a work project done this week and next. Trying to squeeze in org duties around it.

Love ya all!   Kiss 5 more days to join!

Do you feel settled in Maman?
