The Second Harvest

We go where the wild things are
And the Lord of the Land
Stands ready at the guard.

The harvest is upon us and all
Life holds steady bracing for
The storms that lay ahead.

We go where the wild things are
And all of life lay within the
Heart of He who Guards the land.

We find sanctuary within
As the fields become barren
And the crops yield only the
Potent promise of renewal.

The Autumnal Equinox heralds another turn of the Great Wheel and we find ourselves at the time of the Autumnal Equinox. The air is cooler, the leaves are turning and beginning to fall from brittle branches and all of life is giving pause to prepare for what changes lay ahead. This is the second of the three harvests and the fields are already beginning to brown as the day’s light gently wanes and we are enveloped in the quickening darkness of the setting sun. It is at this time we begin to gather our stores of ripened summer foods and draw the remainders of outdoor activities into ourselves to carry us through the winter months ahead. Soon the time for introspection and the gentle quickening of the light that will be birthed at Yule will be at hand, but for now, attention is placed on abundance.

Many will celebrate this Sabbat as Mabon and give honor to the God as the wild lord of the hunt and Green Man of the forests. The Goddess becomes Gaia, the great earth mother who offers up her lands as sacrifice in the cycle of life and death and to that, which will be prey and those that must be predator. In her form as Lady of the Beasts she will guide and protect her animals to insure that new life will come from those that survive the harshness of winter. This is optimal time for connecting with the Anima Mundi the World Soul and the kingdoms of Animal, Man, Crystal and Plant that comprise it.
