TNW-ATC September 25th Autumn Equinox – Harvest Home Ceremony Winds of Transformation
Time & Location
About the Event
As the season of Autumn is now fast approaching, bringing to New England, and elsewhere, chill mornings, still dark in the early a.m., and cooler days and evenings, we know it will soon be time to celebrate the 2nd Harvest: Autumn Equinox, “Harvest Home”, “Witches’ Thanksgiving”, also known as Mabon. Here is Salem Massachusetts we are preparing for this online Zoom rite.
Starting with a Samhain Rite last year on October 31st, 2020 e.v., we have presented seven interactive online Sabbat Ceremonies utilizing the technology of Zoom, graciously hosted by Alexandrian Witch HP. and Occultist Karagan Griffith. Looking back, it has been an amazing and magnificent Year Wheel of Witchcraft, Magick, folklore and more. These Interactive Ritual Drama Presentations featured songs, elemental consecrations and attunements, invocations, guided pathworkings, stories, charms, chants, channeled messages, tarot, spells, candle blessings, anointings, and knowledge lectures.
The Temple of Nine Wells’ celebration of the Witches’ Wheel of the Year commenced online October 31st, 2020 e.v. at Samhain for blessing and honoring our beloveds and Ancestors at Summer’s End. At Yuletide, Winter Solstice we brought back the Light of the rebirth of the Sun, which we strengthened with our rites at Imbolc. We surrounded ourselves with eggs and emblems of fertility at Ostara, the Spring Equinoxand we joyously celebrated High Spring at Beltane. At Midsummer, the Sun was at its height, and we invoked its illumination and empowerment to sustain us throughout the rest of the year. At Lammastide, Lughnasadh, we began the Season of Gathering, we were blessed with the first harvest abundant fruits, grains, herbs and flowers as the Earth teemed with life. We celebrated the union the Sun and Earth, of God and Goddess, which is necessary to bring forth and perpetuate life…
Now at Autumn Equinox, Mabon, the second harvest festival season of gathering continues. We give thanks for the rewards of our works, bounty of our lives and fortify ourselves for the dark tide ahead. As this is the Festival of Plenty on the Witches’ Wheel of the Year, here at our Salem Temple of Nine Wells, we will perform a ceremony of Thanksgiving to Mother Earth who provides nourishment for all her children.
