Happy Autumn Equinox and Mabon to All!!!
My partner was out of town, so I celebrated the equinox with a feast for one yesterday!
Here is what was on the menu:
- Autumn Salad with Pears, Walnuts, and Sunflower Seeds
- Harvest Soup with Chicken, Veggies, and Lentils
- Polish Plum Cake
- Pear-Raspberry Cocktail Potion
I also spent a bit of time learning about Dożynki- a Slavic harvest festival that used to align with the autumn equinox. As Poland is a largely Catholic country now, many traditional pagan celebrations have, unfortauntely, faded away over the years. But it’s still fun to learn about them!

To finish off the night of the Equinox, I had a long gratitude meditation in front of my Mabon Altar . I mediated until the candles burned out, and then went to bed full of graitutde and excitement for the new season to come
As the sun wanes and the darkness of winter approaches, may your magick continue to bring you light and warmth from within
Many autumn blessings to you all!
