Fall Equinox & Mabon Altar Remaking

‍"Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds." ~Anonymous

"A little too abstract, a little too wise,
It is time for us to kiss the earth again,
It is time to let the leaves rain from the skies,
Let the rich life run to the roots again."
~Robinson Jeffers

The wheel of the year turns and we approach the Fall Equinox on Friday, September 22nd. Also called Mabon, this is the second harvest in the wheel of the year, as it follows August's first harvests. Here are some inspirations for renewing and remaking your altar to honor this season, to center our hearts, remove some things and add some new or cherished items. To anchor ourselves in the present, and bring new energy to our space, and delight in the nuances of the changing year:

• A deep colored cloth of fall’s crimson, amber, bronze,& fiery golds.
• Items to represent all the elements—earth, air, fire, water.
Some soil, a feather, your candle, and as mall bowl of water are simple selections.
• Abundant fruits such as apples, apricots, or pomegranates.
• Gourds and pumpkins of all shapes and colors.
• Fall leaves, dried seedpods or grapevines. Bones, feathers, or bark.
• Stones of tourmaline, amber, topaz, lapis lazuli, & clear quartz.
• Personal spiritual items such as deities, amulets, talismans, or images.
• Something to represent both the feminine and masculine.

Above all, make it a delight to gather items and create your altar. Simple is lovely. As is over-the-top elaborate. Let it be who you are.
