The History of Mabon – The Feast of Avalon

The Apple Feast

Celebrating The Fall Equinox
By Springwolf, D.D., Ph.D.  🐾

Mabon (May-bawn) is also known as the Feast of Avalon, the Festival of the Wine and the Festival of the Apple Harvest. Celebrated on the Fall Equinox.

To the Celts, Avalon is the mysterious place for the land of the dead and literally means the “land of apples”. Thus this is a holiday for celebrating the bounty of the harvest and the desire for the living to be reunited with their deceased loved ones. But the holiday is also named for the Welsh God Mabon.

Mabon translates to the “great son”, but some say it’s the “great sun” and relates to the waning reign of the Sun in the sky as summer fades and the season changes to beacon the darkness of fall and winter.

From mythology, Mabon the person was the son of Modred who was kidnapped at the age of 3 and later rescued by King Arthur. His life represents the innocence of youth, the strength of survival and the growing wisdom of the elderly. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Four of Cups – Inverted

Four of Cups Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Shake out the creativity and inspiration from beneath the surface and you’ll find a solution to the communication problems. No one is listening. It’s hard to hear what each other is saying when you’re being stubborn and have your ears closed. You can spend the day/weekend in silence, or act like adults and talk it out.


Additional Insight:

You might hear what’s being “yelled”, but you’re not listening to what’s being said. And neither are they. Yelling only makes things worse and causes people to say things they don’t mean in order to hurt each other. It’s a pointless use of energy.

Stop yelling and start listening. You’re the one who keeps saying you want to work on things and change them for the better. Yet you’re still facing each issue with the same chip on your shoulder. Knock it off; you’re not perfect and yet you’re expecting others to be infallible.

If you’re going to claim to walk a spiritual path and be a spiritual person then you must live up to your talk. Other wise you’re only spinning your wheels and fooling yourself. So shut up, sit down, and listen to what’s being said. There is fear and anxiety behind the words being spoken and you have the ability to help ease those emotions. Both in them and in yourself!

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Judgement – Inverted

Judgement - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t be blinded by rash judgements. Things aren’t as they appear to be, but they’re not what you think they are either. Your walls of skepticism are clouding your judgement and allowing your fear or anxiety to get the best of you. So before you toot your horn too loudly, make sure you have all the facts and have done a little investigation before you make a final decision.


Additional Insight:

Don’t claim more than you can prove or accomplish. Your reputation is respected and you’re being asked to do more than before. That’s great and brings new opportunities for success and recognition. But be careful what you take on. It’s ok to admit you’ve never done that, but you’re willing to give it a try. Others will respect you for admitting your lack of experience and your willingness to learn.

However, if you claim you’ve done something before and you’re “hired” for your experience in that matter, you better make sure you can deliver. Not doing so will harm your reputation not only for this position, but for many others to come. The word will get around and it will be hard to recover from.

If you’re the one making the offer, don’t assume the person you’re contacting can’t do the job simply because they don’t know the proper buzz words. If they’re willing to try and you like their gun-ho attitude and experience in other areas, consider giving them a chance. You may want to check in on them a little more often to see how they’re doing and to offer help. But don’t automatically assume they can’t do the task. They may  be the best worker you’ve ever partnered with.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: King of Cups – Inverted

King of Cups Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Stop the negative talk, and start the positive walk!
~ Springwolf

Things aren’t going to fall apart, even if you turn them upside down. You’ve got to stop worrying! Stop expecting the other shoe to drop and focus on what you can do, instead of what you can’t or don’t have. You must believe in yourself and focus on what has changed; because they have changed for the better. Don’t keep pulling the negative toward you, and allow the positive to do its magik!


Additional Insight:

You’ve been work so hard on making positive changes in your life, yet you’re still fighting against them. Why? Believe in yourself, even when no one else does!

You have already proven you can do this, so just get to it. Stop listening to the critics in your head, they don’t really know you or what you’ve been through. Stop listening to the past fears and worries, because they no longer have influence or meaning over your actions today. Stop replaying the negative scenarios in your mind’s eye, for they will never come to fruition unless you make them happen.

How you “think” will create how you feel, what you face and how you deal with it in the reality of the here and now. So “think” about what you have already changed for the better. Take note of the blessings that have already gotten the ball rolling for you and in the direction you want to go. Focus on the choices you’ve made to turn things around and upside down to shake out the negative influences and controls. You’ve done a great deal already and you should use those positive changes and the energy you’ve expended upon them to lift you up and move on.

Stay focused on your plans to move things forward and the projects you’re already working on. Some of them maybe tedious, but your efforts will pay off in the end! They’ve already started paying off now. So stop the negative talk and start the positive walk!

..on that note..

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Strength – Inverted

Strength Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Stay warm and covered up. The blah feeling of a cold will subside soon enough. Don’t over do it today. Focus on the little things that need to get done. You’ll knock them out one after the other and have a much more productive day than you thought you might have. But don’t over do it. You’re already burning the candle at both ends. Exerting more energy than you have to could cause a mild discomfort to become a full blown cold or bigger issue. Take it easy today!


Additional Insight:

You don’t need to make more work for yourself, you already have enough on your plate. But you’re letting all the little things pile up and causing you to feel overwhelmed. There’s no need for that.

Today is a perfect day to prioritize your To Do list by size and then by due date. Start with tackling all the little things that will clear your desk and help to relieve some of the stress on your shoulders.

The more you knock off the little things the more time you’ll find for the big imperative projects. Like yesterday, sometimes you have to slow down in order to go fast and get things done.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Ten of Pentacles –

Ten of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t over do it today. Take some time to share with friends and visit. Catch up on news and share your own. Make it a relaxing day. You can still get a lot done if you slow down and take your time. Rushing through your list of things to do will cause you to miss something important. So take a break or two, or four. You’ll be surprised at how fast things go, when you slow down a little.

.


Additional Insight:

Don’t dwell on the adversaries or worry about the issues you have no control over. Those things are in the past and can no longer cause problems. You’re worrying over nothing. Things have changed, for the better! Get used to it.

So take your time and look at what is imperative and what can wait till tomorrow. Prioritize your day, not only your list of things to do. Give yourself some time to relax and catch up with the friends that are close to you and know what you’ve been going through. They’ll be glad to hear from you.

If you have to work into the evening, make sure you pick a time to quit. Working all day without a break will burn you out and bring you down even farther than you want to be. You really must let go of what has been if you want the changes you’ve made to bring in prosperity and success. Things really are different! So stop looking at them as if they’re the same. Because they’re not!

10 Commandments To Live By

Imitate Nature's Respect

Respect & Support The Self & Each Other

Keeping Your Perspectives Positive

My husband and I have recently faced some business challenges that brought a great deal of stress into your lives. I’m blessed with the partnership I have with him. When challenges come our way we seem to grow closer and face them as a united front. But we’re human like all couples and we do get annoyed with each other from time to time. Thankfully, our annoyances are pretty mild and don’t last a long time. We still end up pulling together and wading through the issues that fall on our plate and success with support and respect for each other.

Sometimes we all get into a rut and continue a fight that deep down we know maybe a loosing battle. We can refuse to see the inevitable out of fear of change, or the unknown. Or because the known “evil” is more secure than what maybe around the corner that we don’t know.

When we fall into that rut, the Divine has a way of pushing us along to help move our energy and to get us to something better. We may not always see what’s going on as it’s happening, but hindsight is always 20/20 and becomes clear when we have made it through the change. Continue reading

Fluid Plans Can Bring Unexpected Successes

Successful Changes

Change Happens, Sometimes For The Better

It’s been an amazingly busy week on all fronts in my life. It seems when you make a little change that releases a negative anchor so many things are freed and begin to move forward. Even things that have nothing to do with the anchor in the first place.

The flow of energy in and around our lives can touch and connect to so many other things we never expect. We talk about it, we may even know it. But sometimes we don’t really acknowledge it until it happens on a personal level and we sit back and say “Wow”.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Empress

The Empress

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Think about your ideas. Give them time to grow, plan the details, work out the scenarios if you take this path over that road. Consider all the potential consequences you can think of. It’s important to take time and think about your creations before they arrive today. Make sure you’re ready for the events that will take place. If you’re not, things may fall apart or they may not happen at all.


Additional Insight:

Ideas take time to develop into workable solutions or creations. Inspiration is a great thing when you’re developing a piece of art. But working from a place of sheer inspiration when you’re trying to implement a plan of action can short change your creation.

Don’t be in such a rush to put things into place before they’re ready. Things that are worthwhile take time, thought, planning and energy to last. If you rush in to quickly, you could miss some imperative steps that will sustain your idea over the long haul. You could be pushing others into something they’re not ready to do yet. You could be pushing your cart over a cliff, because you didn’t take time to check the map and ensure your driving in the right direction.

Be patient, not only with your desire to get things going, but with yourself as well. Even you have a few things to learn before you get this idea off the ground. While this is something you really want to do, make sure you understand how it’s going to change your life. If you work on this plan, you will have to divert time from other things. Are you really sure that’s what you want to do? Can you handle backing off on other things that are very important to you, in order to make time for this new project?

Take your time. Think it through and make sure this is really what you want to do! If so, go for it! You can align your energy with the Divine in your life, see the pitfalls, plan for the work around solutions and make it happen! You can, because you are one with the Divine Creation!
