|Ciro Marchetti's Legacy of the Divine|
The practice of release brings me to the lighting of the cauldron, during Mabon, even here in the Tropics we engage in the first lighting of the cauldron. For me this is a powerful ritual that brings me closer to a Goddess I am journeying with at present, Ceridwen the cauldron keeper mother goddess of magick, wisdom, rebirth and transformation. I have been waiting for Mabon's magickal lighting of the cauldron to connect more deeply with this Goddess Archetype and so, I can barley contain my giddiness at present :-)

As for the physical world around me, well.... Cairns has been positively drenched by rain, as is usually the case during our illustrious wet seasons. So at present, the sky holds an ambiguous kind of greying darkness that is to me electrifying. The greenery around my home is a vibrant glowing shade of green thanks to the various heavy down pours of just this past week. Our garden is almost glistening in rain drops, I can only imagine what our beautiful yard would look like if the sun were to peak out for just a moment... I feel it would be dazzling.

Another upside to Mabon in the tropics is gardening, we are now able to grow certain varieties of vegetables and root crops that require a cooler claimant. And coming from someone who loves her potatoes, these are happy times :-)
And that is it folks, my Mabon 2014 reflections! I wish you all an extremely productive, introspective, balanced and deeply spiritual Mabon.
Much love, magick and blessings ~ Avalon xo
