Currently Reading: Witchcraft – Raven Grimassi

I’ve given myself homework. And not school homework, but pagan homework. Every night before I turn off the lights to sleep, I read a paragraph or two from one of my “witchy” books. True, I’ve only done this about 3 nights, but I feel like I want to do this, not like I’m forcing myself to do it, which is really good. You have to push yourself if you want to learn something, but it has to be enjoyable at the same time! I’ve read about Samhain and the Winter Solstice and tonight I’ll read about Imbolc! I’m thinking about doing summaries about what I’ve read but I don’t really have the time right now unfortunately.

Days of Witchery: 14. A Favorite Pagan Holiday You Celebrate.

Video from TheShoeWhisperer about Mabon

Embarrassingly enough, I haven’t actually celebrated a pagan holiday yet. I’ve been too much of a coward. I was really close to celebrate Imbolc, but chickened out for some reason. I wasn’t as open with my spirituality, even with myself, as I am now. I am celebrating Mabon with a group of people on the 25th now though. It’s the local esoteric shop that is organizing it. So it’ll be the shopkeepers (one of which is a High Priestess of Avalon) and some other people I know from being in the shop pretty much all the time.

They use to have open celebrations that you’re charged about 30 dollars for. Lammas was a close circle but now they have an open one for Mabon. We’ll be about 6 people celebrating in a currently secret place. We’ll get to know the details closer to the actual holiday. I’m both nervous and excited, but I love the people I’m celebrating with so I just need to trust in them and the God and Goddess and everything will be just fine.

I will take with me either camera or video-camera and post that here.

How are you going to celebrate Mabon?

Blessed Be, Vaettr
