Midsummer/Saint John's Day bonfire with festivities in front of a Christian Midsummer (June 21st this year for us in the northern hemisphere) is the celebration of the summer solstice; the time when the daylight is longest, and nights the shortest. More technically speaking, the summer solstice occurs when one of the earth's poles is tilted closest to the sun. As the summer solstice occurs in one hemisphere, the winter solstice will occur simultaneously in the opposite hemisphere. As the year waxes forward after the winter solstice occurs, so does the light of the sun, and since the earliest of times, these celestial events played extremely important roles within many cultures around the world and helped to shape a diverse range of legend, lore and spiritual practices, some of which may be lost to time, others still present to modern day.

If you look back far enough throughout the history of religion and spirituality as practiced by us sentient beings, you will eventually find that many of the world's spiritual practices and worship had similar origins...many started out as a religion of the Sun and Moon. When one thinks about it, it makes total sense. From our most primitive times as a species, when day to day survival was of the utmost importance, the presence of day and night had a major impact in our efforts to survive, so we started to track the journey of the sun and moon -- literally for the sake of our lives. The sun and moon is where the essence of life and death resided. With each morning's rise of the sun, all that was asleep the night before was awaken and sprung back to life, shedding a light on the unseen dangers that lurked within the veil of darkness. With each rise of the sun during the waxing part of the year also came with it warmth, growth, and the renewal of life. This fiery, life giving energy ended up transforming itself into a myriad of symbolic archetypes that paved way to the foundation of belief systems where deities of the sun were recognized, and were also given that same power to bare life and deliver death as well. 


Solar DeitiesThese archetypes grew greater in influence over time, and soon we as a people were building places of worship for these symbolic figures, many of which were constructed to coincide with the very movements of the sun, lining up in perfect precision on special celestial events such as the solstices and equinoxes. The very fact that these feats were able to be achieved during more primitive times for humanity is astonishing in and of itself, and further goes to show how significant it was for our ancestors to connect with the all mighty, life giving sun.

This year’s Midsummer Sabbat Box is all about tapping into the fiery solar energy of the sun, in the same way our ancestors would attempt to draw in and connect with the power of the life giver itself on the summer solstice. We have worked hard to curate a collection of items that will help inspire one to work with that vibrant solar energy of the solstice. The items inside will also aid in assisting one to focus on drawing in the light of the divine and embracing it within our practices and within our lives. By embracing this light we pave a way to help balance the unbalanced and move forward from the stagnant, and give birth to desires we have deep within. The path work done during this time is open and can be “seen” like no other time of the Wheel. It is a time to recognize the importance of this intense solar energy while also having faith that what we have started will bring about a successful finish, and that the natural cycles of light and dark will continue.

2019 Beltane Sabbat Box - The Rune Box

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

The wheel of the year has turned once again, and we are heading onward towards warmer weather and the summer sabbats. The month of May is home to one of the “greater sabbats” of the Wheel of the Year, Beltane. Beltane, a "fire festival," is the sabbat that falls halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, and is the sabbat opposite of Samhain. During Beltane our ancestors were well aware of the returning sun regaining its dominance over the cold darkness of the winter and early spring, offering a promise of the continuity of life and rebirth. It was a time for seasonal celebration and reverence to life. During Beltane, it is often believed that the veil between the living and the dead may also be lifted or is thinned due to the fact that within the Southern Hemisphere the sabbat of Samhain occurs on the same day as Beltane does in the Northern Hemisphere. During these times in which the walls between our planes of existence are blurred, the spiritually minded will often take advantage of these open realms and attempt to connect with spirit and divine the future throughout a myriad of ways. One of the more popular forms of divination that has been adopted within the Pagan and Wiccan community is rune divination. Runes offer both an ancient written form of communication and sigil magick that is steeped in rich lore and history. Runes offer a glimpse into the minds of the old Germanic people of the past whose wisdom shaped the concept of runes themselves, which in turn shaped how we communicate through language today. Within this special rune themed box for Beltane, we hope that each of our members are able to establish a deep meaningful connection with the magick of runes, while also discovering the hidden wisdom and secrets that the runes have to offer us in order to further extend our knowledge and expand our spiritual foundation.

      2019 Beltane Sabbat Box - The Rune Box - Shop The Beltane Box Here

      All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

      • An intro to runes
      • Rune magick
      • Runic divination
      • Norse lore and mythology
      • Learn how to incorporate runes in your practices

      Runes are not just merely letters that helped to shape our modern alphabet, but they are considered to be a powerful and complex form of magick, conceived in the minds of ancients priests and magicians. Runes are a culmination of magick wisdom, mystic symbolism/correspondences, a form a divination, a form of talismanic magick, and a phonetic language, all of which are steeped in lore and historical significance. The commonly used Nordic or Scandinavian system of runes that is used (and we are focusing on for this box) is the Elder Futhark: a system of twenty-four characters used to communicate or mark words and ideas on everything from structures to swords. Today modern Pagans have reconstituted and adopted the runes into various Pagan practices, and regardless of the pantheon of belief, are still to this day considered to represent the ways and wisdom of our past

      Since the focus of this box is runes and the various ways they can be used magickally, we thought we might include a token of protection in the form of a pocket stone. This particular stone is engraved with what is known in Norse traditions as “Vegvisir” — a culmination of staves and runes that represent protection against losing one’s way or difficult obstacles. The set we had custom made includes the Vegvisir stone (etched with golden inlay on black agate), as well as a beautiful guide that goes deeper into the history and lore of this ancient and beloved symbol. Keep your Vegvisir stone in your car, your pocket or purse as an amulet for safe travels, or on an altar as a simple protection talisman. Black agate is commonly used in spiritual practices for its association to protection.

      Odin - 2019 Beltane Sabbat Box - The Rune BoxDuring this particular time of the spring, many of our ancestors would begin planting season, if they hadn't done so already, and would have made offerings to the earth and various deities with the specific request of crops abundantly emerging with a bountiful harvest and good return. Like the Wheel of the Year, we turn (our attention) to the upcoming fire festival of Beltane on May the First, where bonfires, feasts, and communities coming together are in focus.

      Within Wiccan lore, during Beltane, the Lord and Lady (The Goddess and The God) have reached the integral point in their perpetual dance to come together in sacred union—with their young adulthood being the result of growing fertility and the ascendancy of light and Sun. Their love and infinite ebb and flow of separation and togetherness is cyclical throughout the seasons and during the turning of the wheel, but during Beltane, they become a symbol of divine union. Within this lore, their coupling of the divine feminine and divine masculine is meant to be a representation of nature around them. Their instinctual coming together to continue the cycle of life that would lead to reproduction, (a fruitful harvest), ultimately provides a way forward for new life to be brought forth -- New life being the ultimate return on love and labor invested.

      And while we have focused the past few year's Beltane Sabbat Boxes on the Gaelic/Celtic and modern Wiccan forms of Beltane celebrations, (which is one of the more commonly observed forms of this festival in observance within modern Paganism), we here at Sabbat Box thought we might offer a primer into another part of the world's practices held during this time of the year: those of the Nordic and Germanic pagans to the east, and the mystical beliefs and system of magick that stems from them: RUNES.

      The Codex Runicus - 2019 Beltane Sabbat Box
      The Codex Runicus


      As one treads onto the path of Germanic and Old Norse systems of Pagan beliefs, you will quickly discover that similar to all spiritual beliefs of old, it is filled with deep history and folklore made up of stories, legends, mythology, poetry as well as shamanic and occult practices. It is with these stories and mythological texts from the Viking age known as the Poetic Edda and the Havamal that people have been able to lay the foundational landscape for what has been molded and adopted into that of modern day Norse Paganism. Modern Norse Paganism is blanket term that can encapsulate the adopted practice of various pre-Christian beliefs during the "Viking Age" of Northern Europe. Norse Paganism is mostly rooted in ritual practice and tradition known as forn sið ("old custom") or heiðinn sið ("heathen customs") that has emphasis on rituals, actions, and behaviors rather than a "religious doctrine" or a "textual belief system" itself.

      Rök RunestoneOne of the larger aspects of those ancient Nordic and Germanic practices that many modern Pagans study and have adopted are the system of runes. Runes are not just merely letters that helped to shape our modern alphabet, but they are considered to be a powerful and complex form of magick, conceived in the minds of ancients priests and magicians. Runes are a culmination of magick wisdom, mystic symbolism/correspondences, a form a divination, a form of talismanic magick, and a phonetic language, all of which are steeped in lore and historical significance. The commonly used Nordic or Scandinavian system of runes that is used (and we are focusing on for this box) is the Elder Futhark: a system of twenty-four characters used to communicate or mark words and ideas on everything from structures to swords. Today modern Pagans have reconstituted and adopted the runes into various Pagan practices, and regardless of the pantheon of belief, are still to this day considered to represent the ways and wisdom of our past.


      It is in the spirit of this ancient time and ancient place that we focus our Beltane Sabbat Box procurement this year. We have collected a number of elements that provide insight into the age-old magick of runes, how they can still speak to us, while further learning what unique practices stem from Norse paganism and how they can help broaden our own spiritual beliefs. We hope that the upcoming summertime brings lots of light and life to you, and we hope that this Beltane Sabbat Box may enhance the bale-fires that we light inside us.

      Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

          • BOX SYNOPSIS •


          2019 Ostara Sabbat Box - Blooming Prosperity - Prosperity Magick Witch Subscription Box Wiccan Subscription Box Pagan Subscription Box

          All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

          • Prosperity Magick
          • Fertility Magick
          • Money Magick
          • Manifestation Work
          • Drawing Abundance
          • Working With Earth/Spring Energies

          If we look upon this symbolic time of balance with a sympathetic magick perspective, this time frame that leads to the growth of light during fertility season can easily parallel the concept of fruitfulness and prosperity, making this a perfect time to curate a box themed around prosperity magick. With nature reemerging and waking up, and the life bearing sun blessing us with warmer days, It is this specific concept that we drew from this year that inspired the theme behind the 2019 Ostara Sabbat Box, and also helped to inspire us to curate the items featured inside this "Blooming Prosperity" themed Sabbat Box. With a focus on that anticipation of success and abundance, we collected a group of items that will help look forward to your own fruitful prosperity and abundance, as well as tools and practices that will help assist in drawing prosperous results to your own magickal endeavors. 


          • SPRING GODDESS STATUE •

          • WHO MAKES IT?:
          Sourced via Eclectic Artisans
          • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at The Sabbat Box Store
          • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: A representation of the divine feminine, perfect for any altar.


          BREAKDOWN

          Gods and Goddesses have long played an extremely important role within our religions and spiritual practices, even going all the way back to our earliest of roots, history shows us that our pagan ancestors would venerate and honor various archetypal deities. More specifically, during spring and the start of planting season, it was the mother-like fertility goddesses and divine feminine archetypal figures that would receive an abundance of attention, as they were viewed as the quintessence of our existence — the givers of life, the bearers of breath and birth. Offerings, rituals, prayers, petitions, and sacrifices would be made to these divine mothers in order to ensure a successful and abundant outcome with one’s endeavors. Keeping this in mind, we wa- nted to include an archetypal goddess figure inside each box as a way for you to tap into and connect with the old ways of our ancestors. Representing the embodiment of a flourishing spring (with her spiral belly and creeping vines growing upon her), use your Spring Goddess statuary as a symbol of birth, growth, and prosperity -or- lend her the name of the divine being you work with and allow her to represent that figure on your altar when engaging in your spiritual practices..

          BREAKDOWN
          Mojo bags, also known as or charm bags or sachets (as they are often referred in various paths), are an old form of magick that practitioners have used for centuries. The kit we have included in your Sabbat Box can be used as a complete spell by itself, or it can be used as a component of your own ritual working as a way to encourage prosperity and abundance to manifest in your life. Each set includes a linen bag filled with herbs that correspond with prosperity (alfalfa, spearmint and chamomile), a lucky I-Ching coin, a piece of green aventurine (long known for its association to money and success), and simple instructions explaining how to use the items. All items have been specifically chosen because of their traditional correspondences to financial and material success as well as prosperity. Follow the included instructions to create and charge your sachet. There is even enough room left within each of the linen bags for you to add your own corresponding components to further add your own energy and intent within. Your imagination is the only limit for this basic sympathetic magickal tool.

            🔮What is the most curious thing you’ve ever seen in your crystal ball?🔮I often use it to peer over my shoulder or to catch a glimpse of past lives. I have seen the strange woods I once called home and the campfire that cooked my scarce meals. I’ve swam in the ocean that broke my fall and stood on the cliffs that still torture me with their intense pull. I’ve seen myself smile in the fields, wild & free, and my children romp with joy. I’ve seen the horse that bucked me and the answer to all of my problems. . Today is the last day to enter the Snow Moon giveaway with myself and @cattailapothecary 🖤We’ll close it at 8pm est and announce the winner of our moon magick tomorrow.

              TIME: We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.

              This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!


              We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

Cold long nights and short days give way to the first warm days when fertile ground emerges new life. Many animals prepare to welcome their offspring, and the first buds of flowers break through, and with them an early hope of abundance and a healthy harvest that’s to come in the months ahead.

              Ostara 2019 Sabbat Box Theme - Blooming ProsperityOstara, also known as the spring equinox, is a celebration of that fertility and renewed opportunity and a reflection on how our ancestors lived or died on the return of growing crops and expectant livestock. Because of the anticipation of this fruitful ground and the success that we hope to experience around us, we at Sabbat Box are curating a box for 2019’s Ostara that honors and celebrates that early anticipation of new growth in a concrete way.

              Ostara, historically, is the Sabbat commemorating the Spring Equinox. The word “East”—a cardinal direction most associated with the rising sun and the sign of air—comes from the German root word of Ostara. The day of the Spring Equinox brings alignment of the sun with due east, the day ending when the sun sets due west. This alignment of celestial balance shows us that even for just a moment, the microcosm and macrocosm are in perfect unison, and nature finds balance amongst the chaos of existence. Immediately after that balance, nature then offers her first indication that there will be a period of time when the days will now be longer than the night, allowing for increased sunshine and an abundance of light. This light will continue to grow and get longer until the summer solstice, and then start to wane again.

              If we look upon this symbolic time of balance with a sympathetic magick perspective, this timeframe that leads to the growth of light during fertility season can easily parallel the concept of fruitfulness and prosperity, making this a perfect time to curate a box themed around prosperity magick. With nature reemerging and waking up, and the life bearing sun blessing us with warmer days, It is this specific concept that we drew from this year that inspired the theme behind the 2019 Ostara Sabbat Box, and also helped to inspire us to curate the items featured inside the "Blooming Prosperity" themed Sabbat Box. With a focus on that anticipation of success and abundance, we collected a group of items that will help look forward to your own fruitful prosperity and abundance, as well as tools and practices that will help assist in drawing prosperous results to your own magickal endeavors.

              Ostara Sabbat Box Theme Release for 2019 - Blooming Prosperity

              As we ship out your Sabbat Boxes for Ostara this year, we hope that all of the things you wish to have flourish and cultivate this spring come to fruition. May your Ostara be filled with much prosperity and golden blessings.

              2019 Imbolc Sabbat Box - Spirit's Replenishment - Subscription Box For Pagans

              Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

              The modern spiritual observation of the shift from darkness to light, from old to new, is what Imbolc is all about. Many Pagans use this time to take stock and begin to lay a foundation for the growth and improvement they seek over the coming year. And like the first step in any magickal working, creating a solid magickal foundation starts with purifying, cleansing, ridding and banishing all that needs it -- in order to take the steps to ultimately replenish ourselves and our spirit. By starting the year with a focus on purification and clearing of the old, we lay the groundwork that we need in order to aid us in manifesting the future we desire...in a symbolic, physical, and spiritual manner.

                  • BOX SYNOPSIS •


                  2019 Imbolc Sabbat Box - A Witch Subscription Box Delivered Prior To Each Sabbat

                  All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

                  • Purification magick
                  • Energy clearing
                  • Ritual/spiritual cleansing
                  • Consecration and healing work
                  • Crystal magick
                  • Help with banishing and protective work before rites

                  The winter solstice can be a time of darkness, stagnation, and a sort of end-year malaise. When that Times Square ball drops at midnight on the new year, however, our consciousness tends to shift: we think about what we have done over the last year and what we may want out of the next. It is a time for taking stock, adding up the plusses and subtracting the minuses, with a forward-facing position towards what’s to come. This year's box was curated with this in mind, and with the intent to help assist with replenishing one's spirit as we tread closer towards the spring and into the new year.

                  BREAKDOWN

                  One of the more commonly recognized tools within the craft (and Wicca particularly) is the altar bell. With its ties to purification and clearing one’s space, we thought it would make a perfect addition to this year’s Imbolc Sabbat Box. This gorgeous brass bell is decorated with symbols that represent both feminine and masculine aspects of the divine. It contains triple moons (signifying the Goddess in all her aspects), and fixed atop its handle is a horizontal crescent moon (symbolic of the horns of the God). Many practitioners use bells to signify or mark particular moments within ritual or spellwork, such as the opening and closing of the circle, calling the four quarters, or to chime the moment of exercised intent. This bell can be used for such or as an all-around tool to bring higher vibrational energy within your sacred space to purify and banish negativity. A soft chime of a bell can be used to cleanse an area where you may not want or cannot use smoke or smudge. A harder tolling can represent the high vibration energy necessary for banishment. A bell is also considered to be a correspondence of the element of air, and can mark this element on a Wiccan altar.

                  BREAKDOWN
                  For a box dedicated to purification and spiritual replenishment, we thought it would be a nice idea to include another popular altar fixture to add within our members’ spiritual toolbox: the quartz tower. Clear quartz, unsurprisingly, corresponds to clarity, both in energy and communication. While quartz crystal itself is generally seen as a stone of universal intention (as it is the culmination of all the colors of the rainbow like a prism, which many believe includes all aspects of all other stones), it also brings its specific significance of transparency and purity with its translucent brilliance. In the form of a tower, it stands in for both masculine or phallic energies and is honorarium to the divine (as it points “upward”), as well as a striking illustration of a sword cutting air or division of space. Many crystal workers and practitioners recognize the energy-attracting power of the tower shape as a source of strength, stability, and power. These stunning towers are a perfect addition to any altar or sacred space, and can be used as a focal point for higher energy work and divination.

                  BREAKDOWN

                  Spring cleaning goes hand in hand with Imbolc, and what better to include in a purification themed Sabbat Box than an item to help cleanse your sacred space! Earthen Alchemy’s Sacred Altar Wash is a complex blend of herbs and oils that can be used to not only cleanse your altar or space spiritually, but is great to use as a literal cleaner (just be sure to test surface before use). This purifying blend of sweetgrass hydrosol (herbal solution) contains palo santo for energy clearing, white fir, juniper berry, and cypress essential oils for purification and protection, providing a fresh, clear space for your magickal workings.

                  Renewal ritual and body oil is specially crafted to hold the peaceful yet hopeful energy of the sabbat, Imbolc. It reminds us that all darkness is followed by light, all sadness evertually turns to joy, and that death provides the pathway for rebirth. It features a multi-note blend of lavender, sandalwood, palo santo, and a touch of fennel to inspire peace, to awaken the mind, and to bring renewal to the spirit. It’s not just for working with the Imbolc season. It is an inspired blend that will invigorate you throughout the year and particularly after traumatic and trying times. Renewal can be used in place of your traditional body moisturizer or massage oil but also makes an excellent addition to ritual candles and tools.

                  Our aura is an energy field that surrounds us. It is the first thing that others pick up on when coming into contact with us and it is also very sensitive to surrounding energies, helping to guide our intuition. It is important that our aura be free flowing and protected in order for us to maintain clarity, in both magickal and mundane settings. To help assist with both purifying and protecting our aura, we included this potent Aura Ointment by Light of Anjou in this Imbolc’s Sabbat Box. Use this balm prior to spellwork or ritual as a way to purify the aura and protect it from negativity and ill intent. This anointing balm is versatile enough to be used on the body and can be used on objects you wish to purify and protect.

They’re each made using the “masala tradition” which consists of grinding and mixing powdered herbs, resins, and oils together to form a dough, and then are hand rolled onto the bamboo and coated in aromatic wood powder. Which variety speaks to you? Which variety is your favorite? As with all items by Sun's Eye, these incense are of exceptional quality, and will quickly become your favorite incense to use for ritual or meditation.

We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.

                      This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!


                      We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.
