Autumn is, almost here!

As I will be at work, and my little witchling at school, we are unable to have a full-blown Mabon celebration on the actual Equinox. So, I have planned an “It’s Autumn Day” to be celebrated on Sunday 20th instead.

Our celebration will begin by getting up early, to watch the sunrise and perform a simple gratitude ritual, at our outdoor altar. After a hearty breakfast, we will travel to a local National Trust park, for a few hours of gathering acorns, conkers and leaves, to be used later in the day. We will have a walk around the lake, taking in the fresh air and sights and sounds of the changing season, before a picnic feast of local seasonal produce.

Once back at home, we will use the items we collected to decorate our altar and, depending on how fruitful our collection was, do some autumnal crafts.

Following a dinner of warming vegetable stew or soup, we intend to indulge in a homemade pie, utilising the bounty of apples on our apple tree, before settling down to watch a film and enjoy hot chocolate before bed.

After reading one of our favourite stories, Christopher Pumpkin by Sue Hendra & Paul Linnet, my little witchling and I will reflect on our day and give thanks for the abundance in our lives.

I do intend to perform a simple Releasing spell on the day of the equinox, but as Autumn is my favourite season, I really like to make a big deal of it's arrival and spend a whole day indulging in the foods and rituals that are associated with this time of year.

Do you like to celebrate the Autumn Equinox? Comment below and let me know how you'll be spending the day.
