Wishing you a blessed Mabon today. Autumn Equinox also known as Mabon is celebrated when day and night are of equal duration before the descent into increasing darkness and is the final festival of the season of harvest. After this day darkness takes over light, cold takes over warmth and death takes over life, earths energy is pulled inwards as leaves from trees fall to the ground, flowers wilt and die, the ground will become hard and baron. In nature, the activity of the summer months slows down to the hibernation for the winter. For Pagans, now is a time to reflect on the past seasons. The Sun God is now descending into the underworld and will make his final decent on Samhain. The Triple Goddess after giving birth to the harvest has left her Mother phase and is now entering her Crone Phase. Mabon is also a time to recoginse that the balance of the year has changed, the wheel has turned and summer is now over, we must prepare for a long winter ahead of us and ask the Lord of the Dark Sun to be kind to us through the winter months. Autumns Equinox is a time of balance, it is a time to look within ourselves and balance our thoughts and emotions, to find balance in our lives. Astrologers will recognise this as the date the Sun enters the sign of Libra - the Scales of Balance.Mabon is considered a time of the mysteries.The Druids call this celebration, Mea’n Fo’mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the Horned God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines and herbs. It is a time to honor Aging Deities and the Spirit World. Considered a time of balance, it is when we stop and relax and enjoy the fruits of our personal harvests, whether they be from toiling in our gardens, working at our jobs, raising our families, or just coping with the hussle and bussle of everyday life. May your Mabon be memorable, and your hearts and spirits be filled to overflowing.

This ritual is one of the most intensely beautiful and powerful rituals that most Wiccans and Pagans can ever experience, if you are in a Coven the High Priestess will perform this ritual with all the Coven members being involved but you can do this on your own. It is one in which the practitioner invokes the Goddess directly into themselves. Regardless of how you practice it, Drawing Down the Moon is best performed on the night of the Full Moon. For obvious reasons, it’s more suitable to be performed outside, but if the weather is bad or cold or your neighbors are easily startled, you can perform the ritual indoors.
Light a white candle and put it in a place where the Moonlight can be seen, such as a window ledge.You can also light an incense stick if you wish to cleanse the space you’re in. Relax your body and remove any negative thoughts from your mind. Take deep breaths. 
Stand at your altar if you have one, don’t worry if you don’t just face the Moon with your arms crossed over your chest, and feet together. 
Now say:Mother Goddess, lend me your lightGive me your power on this faithful nightI invoke you into my being and soulFill up my vessel and make me feel WholeI stand before you in awe and in loveI cherish your gifts you stow from aboveI ask you tonight to show unto meMy Mother, My Goddess so mote it be.
Move your feet apart to about shoulder width, and raise your arms up and out to welcome the Goddess into you. Close your eyes and feel the power of the Moonlight wash over you like rain. Think of the awesome power of the universe you are invoking and be at one with it. stand for as long as you feel you need to, basking in the Moons glow. Let the energy of the Moon wash over you healing and cleansing you.
Drawing Down the Moon is an altered state of consciousness, a ritual possession by the Divine. It is not uncommon to feel the energy of the Goddess for quite some time following Drawing Down the Moon, so don’t be alarmed if you feel a heightened sense of clarity over the next few days. You may also feel extremely emotional - it’s not uncommon to cry or laugh spontaneously during this rite.
