Setting Up Your Mabon Altar


Mabon is the time when many Pagans and Wiccans celebrate the second part of the harvest. This Sabbat is about the balance between light and dark, with equal amounts of day and night. Try some or even all of these ideas -- obviously, space may be a limiting factor for some, but use what calls to you most.


Colours of the Season:


The leaves have begun to change, so reflect the colours of autumn in your altar decorations. Use yellows, oranges, reds and browns. Cover your altar with cloths that symbolize the harvest season, or go a step further and put brightly coloured fallen leaves upon your work surface. Use candles in deep, rich colors -- reds, golds, or other autumn shades are perfect this time of year.

 

Symbols of the Harvest:


Mabon is the time of the second harvest, and the dying of the fields. Use corn, sheaves of wheat, squash and root vegetables on your altar. Add some tools of agriculture if you have them - scythes, sickles, and baskets.

 

A Time of Balance:


Remember, the equinoxes are the two nights of the year when the amount of light and darkness are equal. Decorate your altar to symbolize the aspect of the season. Try a small set of scales, a yin-yang symbol, a white candle paired up with a black one -- all are things which represent the concept of balance.

 

Other Symbols of Mabon:

Wine, vines and grapes

Apples, cider, and apple juice

Pomegranates

 Ears of Corn

Pumpkins

Gods' Eyes

Corn Dolls

 Mid-autumn vegetables, like squashes and gourds

Seeds, seed pods, in their shells

Baskets, symbolizing the gathering of crops

 Statuary of deities symbolising the changing seasons
