| Hi, Twv!; Mabon/autumnal Equinox? We At Sacred Pentagraph Treat It As... ||Sep 10th. at 10:48:47 pm UTC|

We at Sacred Pentagraph treat it as a facing of one's just desserts.
First, the annual Coven dues are collected as the harvest sacrifice.
Then there is a large table laden with seasonal harvest fruit, plates and paring knives.
The God as Karmic Judge is invoked and each person takes a plate, heaps it with fruit and takes a knife and sits to meditate with and before the God as to what one has accomplished or failed to accomplish in the previous Year.
The fruit is pared and consumed as each person judges him or her self before the God. A pat on the back, or a kick in the ass, as each feels he/she deserves.
The Scales of Libra stand as the meditation symbol and total silence reigns in the Temple for this rite. It is a private inner communion with the God. BB Tarostar

This Mabon I will be trying out several things in the excellent book "Circle Round." It has much for pagan parents and I just really love the book. I belong to a Male Pagan Group called "Samildanach", and we are going to be cutting down the greenman/wicker man that we have named "John Barleycorn". We are going to leave him to dry until Samhain where he will be burned. He has grown since the spring, and we have tied parchments of our hopes and dreams, when they burn with him we hope they will come to fruitition. I will be scanning this forum over the next week to see if anyone else has any good ideas I might borrow. One thing I like about being a pagan is you can make your traditions better and better as you and your family grows.
