The First Day of Fall
Mabon Faerie found at
I am Autumn's grandeur and the colors of completion.
I am the ripened store that will
see my soul through the coming cold.
As night and day are poised in balance, I release all that is
no longer mine to hold, and praise that which abides.
I enter now into reprieve and seek the lessons that will be revealed.
Mabon is the time where day and night are in equal length.

Prayer for Balance
(Just what I needed!)
Now is the moment of Equinox
I stand before the union of light and dark.
The equal journey of Goddess and God
has come to the threshold of balance.
May my mind be in balance.
May my heart be in balance.
May my body be in balance.
May my spirit enfold all that I am in balance.
Now is the moment of the Equinox.
May all things be aligned, within and without.
So mote it be.
