Mabon: Celebrating Hearth and Home

As autumn rolls in, we know we’ll be spending more time indoors in just a few months.

Take some time to do a fall version of spring cleaning.

Physically clean your home from top to bottom, and then do a ritual smudging.

Use sage or sweetgrass, or asperge with consecrated water as you go through your home and bless each room.

Decorate your home with symbols of the harvest season, and set up a family Mabon altar.

Put sickles, scythes and bales of hay around the yard.

Collect colorful autumn leaves, gourds and fallen twigs and place them in decorative baskets in your house.

If you have any repairs that need to be done, do them now so you don’t have to worry about them over the winter. Throw out or give away anything that’s no longer of use.
