Mabon Sabbat Box Moon Magick Sabbat Box - Witch Subscription Box

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

Summer is moving on, and cooler air will soon invite us outside. Autumn is the time the earth brings for shorter days and longer nights, its balance culminating on the equinox--which many Pagans and witches refer to as Mabon. Around this time the harvest moon can be seen, the last of the fruits of the earth are to be gathered and the time of thanksgiving for all the bounty gathered and stored. This year’s Mabon Sabbat Box celebrates the moon and her magickal and mundane influence on our lives.

    • BOX SYNOPSIS •


    2018 Mabon Sabbat Box - Moon Magick Sabbat Box - Wiccan Ritual Supplies Pagan Subscription Box Service

    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:

    • Moon Magick
    • Candle Magick
    • Intention Setting
    • Working with the moon phases
    • Working with and connecting with the divine feminine
    • Using moon spells to help bring forth changes you seek

    In addition to thanksgiving and harvest, the autumn exquinox is a time of balance. The word equinox itself comes from the Latin word aequinoctium - aequus meaning equal and nox meaning night. During both the spring and fall equinox, day and night are nearly equal. Enforcing the equilibrium is the fact that the sun enters Libra, a sign of balanced scales, on the morning of the autumn equinox. Celebrating balance means appreciating the light and dark within your life. What does the light bring you? Think of the sun, the day, the progress you make during that timeframe and what you draw to you. And what does the dark do for you? Think of letting go, of cleansing, of the night, and, especially, of the moon. After all, we’re entering her jurisdiction as we travel to the darker half of the year!

      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.

      Mabon Moon Magick - Sabbat Box Theme

      Mabon 2018 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Moon Magick II 2

      Moon Magick Mabon 2018 Sabbat Box Theme - Sabbat Box a Witch Subscription Box For Pagans

      • 2018 MABON - FALL EQUINOX SABBAT BOX THEME • MOON MAGICK •


      The weather cools, a chill settling in the air. The leaves begin to turn to fiery colors: Yellow. Red. Orange.  The spectrum creates a rainbow over the landscape as they fall to the ground, filling the air with an earthy scent. The autumn equinox is near.


      The equinox itself is a scientifically observable event when the tilt of the earth is so that the sun passes over the earth’s equator.  Because of this, the sun rises exactly east and sets exactly west rather than at a slight tilt towards the poles and we experience a near-equal day and night. This event occurs twice a year: Once at spring and once in the fall. In 2018, the Autumn Equinox will take place on September 22nd at 4:02 PM EDT. 

      Mabon and Moon Magick - Sabbat Box theme release for Mabon 2018 - A Subscription Box For Witches and PagansFor pagans and witches, the fall equinox is also known as Mabon, one of three harvest festivals on the Wheel of the Year. We owe the name "Mabon" itself to Aidan Kelly in the 1970s, a reference to characters, or perhaps gods, from Welsh lore. That being said, though the name is relatively new, the concept of a celebration occurring around the fall equinox is not. Oschophoria was a festival in ancient Greece that honored the grape harvest and wine. Eighteenth century Bavarians celebrated Oktoberfest in the last week of September, a festival that continues today. Even the US holiday Thanksgiving originally occurred on October 3rd, just a week and a half after the equinox. It wasn’t until 1863 that it was moved to November and 1941 before it settled on the date it is today. As such, the modern Autumn Equinox as a pagan festival is one of thanksgiving and gratitude.


      Much of this thanksgiving tradition with Mabon is owed to its timing around the fall harvest. Customs of the holiday include this, creating themes of completion and goal achievement. This is a great time to reflect upon the past to see if you have reaped what you’ve sown from seeds planted in the spring. What goals did you want to achieve at the beginning of the year? Have they come to fruition?  What do you need to do to find completion? This might even mean cutting your losses to move forward, much as a farmer might do with a dud crop.

       

      Mabon Altar For A Fall Equinox Ritual - Sabbat Box Mabon 2018 Theme Release - A Subscription Box For PagansMabon altar for a Fall Equinox ritual

       

      In addition to thanksgiving and harvest, the autumn equinox is a time of balance.  The word equinox itself comes from the Latin word aequinoctium- aequus meaning equal and nox, of course, meaning night. During both the spring and fall equinox, day and night are nearly-equal. Enforcing this equilibrium is the fact that the sun enters Libra, a sign of balanced scales, on the morning of the autumn equinox. Celebrating balance means appreciating the light and dark within your life. What does the light bring you? Think of the sun, the day, the progress you make during that timeframe and what you draw to you. And what does the dark do for you?  Think of letting go, of cleansing, of the night and, especially, of the moon. After all, we’re entering her jurisdiction as we travel to the darker half of the year.


      Mabon has always had a close association with the moon. The full moon near the fall equinox, the Harvest Moon, is probably the most well-known. This particular full moon derives its name from the farmers working late into the night, the crops illuminated by its brilliant light. The Harvest Moon is sometimes called the Wine Moon as well because it rises in a beautiful orange-red splendor, akin to the fiery colors of the autumn leaves below. Moreover, for those that believe in the goddess, Mabon is when she officially enters her “waning” phase – another emphasis on the connection of this equinox with the moon.

      But this isn’t all. As stated earlier, the equinox isn’t exactly a perfect balance of night and day – it is only nearly equal. That perfect equality, called equilux rather than equinox, occurs a few days before the actual equinox itself. We owe this offset on the day the sun passes over the equator’s plane to atmospheric diffusion and, of course, our beloved moon. Earth’s satellite causes the planet’s orbit to vary from a perfect ellipse. It’s also why we have the tilt, and thus the equinoxes, in the first place. Thus the moon has a profound effect on this sabbat in particular!


      Mabon Altar For A Fall Equinox Ritual - Sabbat Box Mabon 2018 Theme Release - A Subscription Box For Pagans Mabon altar for a Fall Equinox ritualBecause of the fall equinox’s especially close connection to the moon, Sabbat Box would like to announce its Mabon box theme: Moon Magick II. Our first Moon Magick themed Sabbat Box was presented on Ostara of last year.  It seems only appropriate to present the second of this theme on the mirror holiday to the first.  Moon Magick deals with the darkness and the ways we attempt to illuminate it, much like a candle in the night. It is spiritual, cleansing, divinatory and divine. It’s also natural, emphasizing harvested herbs akin to the harvest of the fall.


      This box will assist subscribers on working with not just the Harvest Moon in its full status but every phase during this time – and throughout the year! The items you’ll discover will be educational, interactive and fully integrated with the moon herself, and will include more exclusive items just for our members. We can’t wait for our subscribers to open up this magickal box and begin harnessing the full power of the many phases of the moon this equinox!

      Mabon Sabbat Box The Second Harvest - Wiccan Subscription Box Witch Subscription Box Pagan Subscription Box

      Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

      The Wheel of the Year is turning toward the autumnal equinox, which means that as the days get shorter, folks are looking toward winter and being prepared for the longer nights ahead. This season has traditionally been the time when crops that would be stored for the winter would be brought in, and within the neo-pagan and wiccan communities, this time of year is known as the second harvest sabbat, or Mabon. The gathering of food stores also meant the gathering of people at this time as well: people in their communities would come together to share and trade their bounties with each other, ensuring that no one within their friends and families would be without. A feast of the harvest would offer a time to celebrate and give thanks for the bounty that would sustain them through the fallow times until the coming spring and planting season! Every culture's ancestors had a different way of honoring the earth and celebrating the harvest season, each special in their own way. 

      We hope that you enjoy these items that we’ve hand-picked for the celebration of Mabon. We hope they give you a deeper understanding of the season and help you to connect with the equinox energies and autumnal magick.

        • BOX SYNOPSIS •


        2017 Mabon Sabbat Box The Second Harvest - Witch 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:

        • Mabon rituals
        • Honoring the earth
        • Prosperity magick
        • Gratitude magick
        • Celebrating/giving thanks for our blessings

        While the time of gathering the first fruits of the harvest season has passed (Lammas), the second harvest, was considered to be the grand gathering time of food and the needed staples for storage in order for our ancestors to get through the coming winter. Though prepping to survive winter was one of the main purposes behind the harvest season, many cultures from around the world would take time during this season to come together and celebrate the fruits of their labor, and to feast and share in the abundance of the season with family and friends.

        Aside from celebrating our blessings and the abundance from the earth this sabbat; the spirit of Mabon and the autumnal equinox is also associated with balance. With the light of sun and dark of night starting to appear equally again this time of year, one can see why balance came to play such a symbolic role during the harvest season. Balance brings stability within our lives, which also brings with it harmony and security, and itsn’t that what we all ultimately seek in order to live fully and happily?

        Mabon will mark an ideal time to lay the groundwork down to manifest an abundant, prosperous future by weaving a new balance for yourself, and your environment. Use the equinox as a time to help rid yourself of any obstacles preventing you from the balance you desire, while “sweeping” away difficulties you may be facing. You may also wish to “spiritually prep” your home for the coming winter, while also getting rid of what may not serve you through the coming season, and into the new year.

        Witches' Altar Besom - Wiccan Ritual Broom By Blue Moon Broom Brush and Besom

        ITEM 1: WITCHES' BESOM.........$25.00
        • WHAT:
        Traditional Hand Crafted Witches’ Broom/Altar Besom
        • WHO MAKES IT?: 
        Blue Moon Broom, Brush, and Besom
        • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available Via Blue Moon Broom Brush and Besom or through the Sabbat Box Store
        • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: A staple for any witch or Pagan's tool kit, these custom made besoms are a durable, beautiful example of craftsmanship that can be proudly displayed at an altar or sacred space.  


        BREAKDOWN

        The witch’s broom, also known as a besom, has long been steeped deep in lore and symbolism, and has played an important role within the craft throughout generations. What once started as a simple domestic utensil used by people to physically clean their homes, over time ended up becoming an important spiritual tool, protective talisman, and a sacred object within the home, and within the craft.

        In Wicca, the besom is used ritually when casting circle to purify a space by “spiritually sweeping” away impure energy. This stems from the fact that besoms were originally made with ash handles and birch bristles (ash being a masculine wood representing life, good luck and abundance) and birch (a feminine wood, representing protection and purification) in European folklore.

        Your besom is meticulously woven and was made to be very durable so it can be used to physically clean your altar or sacred space if you wish, or it can also be hung over your door to purify those coming into your home. It can also be used ritually to purify space. Each besom comes with a broom/besom info parchment filled with history and lore of brooms, perfect for a book of shadows. 

        Robert Skinner, (the founder of Blue Moon Broom, Brush and Besom), has been a fiber artist for over 8 years. He specializes in crafting traditional style brooms and besoms, handfasting besoms, ritual brooms and besoms, and very much welcomes custom orders. When it comes to crafting a broom, Robert will craft everything by hand, from start to finish in order to maintain an exceptional level of quality and durability. From cutting, soaking and drying the natural broomcorn, to weaving and tying, everything is done by hand. On custom brooms and besom orders, Robert will even go as far as hand dyeing each piece of broom corn, string or other besom components with natural dyes when custom besom coloring is requested. On brooms that contain natural branch handles, he will kiln dry the wood, then sand and stain them by hand as well. With each weave of a handle, Robert sews in his intent, connecting with each fiber and strand of broomcorn, lending life into each of his creations.

        ABOUT THE VENDOR:
        I have been a professional intuitive reader since 1998. I also have my MA in Psychology and believe these two fields blend beautifully.

        I also have a bit of an unusual background. Although I am culturally Jewish, I was greatly influenced by my childhood nanny who was from Southern Mississippi. She was born with the "veil" or caul which enabled her to see her spirits and ancestors. Throughout my childhood, I was taught that our ancestors served as guides and that there were numerous spirits, saints or deities that were here to help us on our paths. Greatly influenced by the Southern Root Doctors, she had a number of remedies and cures for all of life's little up and downs. Of course, she would also recite the psalms when I was sick or troubled. Continue reading more here...

        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.

        POST HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE - AS OF 9/15/17 @ 3:30 P.M. EST.

        MABON SABBAT BOX - NEW SHIPPING DATE: MONDAY SEPTEMBER 18th


        Greetings Everyone,

        We just wanted to follow up with you to let you know that as of today, Sabbat Box and Eclectic Artisans has gone back to our normal operating schedules. We sincerely thank each of you for all of your thoughts, compassion and prayers prior to the storm. Please see below for further updates...

        MABON SABBAT BOX DELAYS: 
        The 2017 Mabon Sabbat Box ship date has been pushed to Monday September 18. Last week, prior to Hurricane Irma's impact to our area, we were estimating that we would have Mabon Sabbat Boxes shipped out by Friday September 15th. Unfortunately, we are still waiting on the delivery of the Mabon Sabbat Box brochures before we can ship boxes, (which are due in for delivery this evening on 9/15). 

        Much of Florida and the Southeast is still dealing with residual impacts caused by Hurricane Irma. Things like power outages, flooding and gas shortages are specifically causing delays in shipping and deliveries to the Southeast region of the U.S. amongst the various shipping couriers. We will be receiving your Mabon brochures Friday afternoon on the 15th, and will begin finalizing the packing of boxes tomorrow (Saturday 9/16), to ship them on Monday 9/18.

        The majority of you will still receive your boxes on or before Mabon (9/22), which is always our goal at Sabbat Box. We apologize for the extenuating circumstances and thank you in advanced for your patience and understanding during these particularly challenging times. 

        TEXAS, FLORIDA, SOUTH CAROLINA, AND GEORGIA MEMBERS/CUSTOMERS:
        If you are a Sabbat Box member located in any of the above listed states and are currently in a situation where you cannot receive any mail or shipments of your Sabbat Box due to the impact of Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma, please contact us here and let us know. We can make arrangements to hold or delay the shipment of your Sabbat Box


        AFTER THE STORM:

        Thankfully, here in Pinellas County, we made it through the storm much better than anticipated. Irma's final track pushed her inland sooner then expected, which prevented her from intensifying back into a CAT4 or 5, which spared Tampa Bay from complete and total devastation. Right now, there still are many businesses and homes in the area still without power, but in the grand scheme of things Pinellas County really lucked out. 

        Those that live in Naples, Miami, the Keys, Jacksonville and parts of South Carolina, Georgia, and The Virgin Islands, did not fare as well. Their impacts were much more severe, and brutal. We ask that you please keep these people in your thoughts and prayers as they begin to rebuild.

        • HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE •



        MABON SABBAT BOX - NEW SHIPPING DATE: FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 15th

        HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE - AS OF 9/8/17 @ 11:30 A.M. EST.
        Sabbat Box and our sister company Eclectic Artisans happens to be located in West Central Florida. We have been closely monitoring Hurricane Irma since this past Monday, Labor Day. Because of the storm's major shift westward in its projected track and its potential danger to our area, we have been forced to make preparations to deal with the coming inclement weather, which has ultimately effected our normal operating and subscription box shipping schedule.

        Hurricane Irma is currently expected to effect our area from Saturday September 9th to Tuesday September 12th. Depending on how fast the storm moves through, it could be shorter, could be longer, which is why we have decided to move the shipping date for Mabon Boxes to September 15th. We may lose power and may not be able to reply back to you in reference to your purchases or questions after this weekend. PLEASE, WE ASK FOR YOUR PATIENCE IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES. 


        SHIPPING SCHEDULE CHANGE: 
        Mabon Sabbat Boxes were scheduled to be shipped out this coming Monday, September 11th. This is the same day Hurricane Irma is scheduled to effect our area the hardest. With that said, we have decided to push back the shipment of Mabon Boxes by 4 days to Friday September 15th. 


        SHIPPING CONFIRMATIONS:

        We will be printing Mabon Box shipping labels either today or tomorrow. This will trigger a shipping confirmation email to you. Please know boxes WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL AT LEAST NEXT FRIDAY SEP. 15. We are doing this in case we lose power after the storm, which will allow us to still ship boxes. 

        PROCESSING ORDERS:
        All Eclectic Artisans and Sabbat Box store purchases after 9/8 at 11:00AM will not be processed and shipped until after September 15th. We thank you for your understanding.

Be sure to follow us on social media for further updates. We thank you for your understanding regarding these extenuating circumstances and look forward to shipping your Mabon Boxes.

        Mabon 2017 Sabbat Box Theme Release • The Second Harvest 0

        Mabon Sabbat Box Theme Release - The Second Harvest - Subscription Box For Witches Wiccans and Pagans

        • THE SECOND HARVEST •



        The Wheel of the Year is turning toward the autumnal equinox here in the northern hemisphere. Day and night will once again be equally divided on September 22nd of this year, and from there, the night will overtake the day into the winter.

        Mabon Sabbat Box - The Second Harvest Theme Release While the time of the first fruits of the harvest--celebrated at Lammas--has passed, and the earlier fruits and grains are in, the second harvest is the grand gathering of food for storage to get through the long, dark winter ahead. Apples! Pumpkins! Squash! All of the fruits and vegetables we associate with autumn are highlighted and revered at this time.

        Throughout history, this time has been marked with a festival of the abundance and bounty of these crops, bringing friends, neighbors, and family together to support one another as the "lean" times approach. Though nowadays, in most areas around the world, we have grocery stores to get us through the "lean" times, but in earlier days, if tragedy or lack struck, a neighbor’s hospitality made the difference between surviving the winter or not. This coming together to share a feast was a way to bond the community and a reminder to look out for one another, while showing gratitude for what we have (a roof over our heads, food to eat, and our health).

        It is the spirit of these Second Harvest traditions and rituals that we focus our attention for this year’s Mabon Sabbat Box. We have curated a selection of items that will help you connect, celebrate, and honor this point in the Wheel of the Year and provide ways to offer thankfulness and gratitude for full storehouses and abundance. The themes of Mabon--protection, gratitude, and prosperity, and the importance of home and hearth--are what we focused on when deciding what to curate and include in our Mabon collection this year.

        What will you do to celebrate and revere this time of harvest? What rituals or practices do you celebrate to fend off the darkness of winter? We at Sabbat Box hope that you and your community come together to recognize the bounty that ensures survival during the darker days ahead.
