Mabon • Autumnal Equinox Sabbat Box Theme Release 1
• Mabon - Autumnal Equinox Sabbat Box Theme •
A stag disappears into the high grass field as the sun bows to the west. As you head back toward the house, you smell a fire burning—a musky fragrance that wafts through the cooling dusky air—and then it happens: You feel that first hint of autumn, a slivered yellow moon rising in the darkening east. You hurry back toward home, a simmering dinner waiting for you on the fire. You start to notice that the veil of the night becoming equivalent to that of the day, Mabon is near~
As the sun's light starts to wane and we approach the autumnal equinox, we here at Sabbat Box are gearing up for our next shipment for Mabon. With that being said, it is time to announce Sabbat Box’s theme for Mabon: "Home, Hearth, Harvest."
This stop on the Wheel of the Year is about the abundance of the second harvest! This is the time of the year where we really start to obtain and enjoy all of the fruits of our labor and reflect on the bounty in our lives. Gratitude and appreciation for the good things of life are in order of this time of year, but it’s also an opportunity to start thinking about what we have yet to accomplish and where we want to focus our energy when “planting time” comes ‘round again. Some may consider Mabon and the second harvest "Pagan Thanksgiving," being that the two celebrations are similar in nature. Late September is the time of the year where mother nature bears her final gifts as a means for us to get through the coming cold, but not without first giving us a final feast for our eyes with the seasonal changes of fall colors. We also celebrate the Sabbat of Mabon in conjunction with the Autumnal Equinox -- the day where light and darkness are equal. An important magickal facet of the equinox is the resemblance of duality and balance; duality and balance as found in ourselves, nature and the universe.
We have started to curate some really fantastic items to be featured in the Mabon Box that will help our members celebrate the equinox as well as represent the home, hearth and harvest. Since the key to Mabon’s significance is abundance and gratuity, we’re loading up our next Sabbat Box with all kinds of unique and creative additions that will help inspire you and add to whatever you’re planning for your big harvest celebration. Whether it is at your circle, your altar, or just around your home, we believe our supply of Sabbat Box goodies will bring a little magick to your observance of this wonderful time of plenty.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of Sabbat Box, we recently had to implement a waiting list for new perspective members. For those of you not yet able to join Sabbat Box and are on our waiting list, please know that we are working as diligently as possible to expand the Sabbat Box circle in order to further expand and allow for new members to join. We sincerely thank all of you for your support and we hope that we can continue to provide helpful, meaningful additions to your Pagan path.

Lammas - Lughnasadh Sabbat Box Theme Release 1
Greetings Fellow Wise Ones,
It is that time again! With the sun finalizing its journey to its maximum potency, the light of the day will begin to start to wane. It is at this point, we as a people in the northern hemisphere, start to reap what we have sewn, as we begin our journey back towards the darker half of the year. With that being said, we have decided to have our Lammas - Lughnasadh themed Sabbat Box be based upon the idea of "reaping what you sew." The universe will echo our actions, both magically and mundanely, and in essence getting what we give or "reaping what we are sewing." This is a deep seeded principle with magick and witchcraft, and is heavily regarded as a foundation of the principles of working magick, making this the perfect theme for this box!
Our goal with the Lammas-Lughnasadh Sabbat Box is to provide you with inspirational tools that will help you "reap and sew" a little magick into your life this Lammas. We have some exciting items planned for this box that will envelope all of your senses and will hopefully shine a light on the things that are bountiful in our lives and also shine a light on things that we tend to be thankful for this time of year. We have some exclusive Sabbat Box products that will be featured within this box as well as products that have been specially made for our Lammas box, which makes this box even more magical.
We plan on shipping out Lammas Boxes on July 17. Most members will receive their boxes within 2-3 business days after shipping. Once Lammas boxes ship, you will receive a tracking email. You can always check the status of your order once it ships by visiting the "Check Order Status" link on the Sabbat Box homepage.
We thank you all for your continued membership and for making this happen. We have been overwhelmed with so many happy members, sharing their experiences and giving us such positive feedback.

We look forward to shipping out your Lammas - Lughnasadh Sabbat Box as well as continuing to bring some magickal inspiration your way. Haven't signed up yet for a Sabbat Box, you can do so here.

We have some absolutely amazing products in store for the very first Sabbat Box including our very first Sabbat Box exclusive product, made by a small Pagan owned business (more information about this particular product will be found within your Sabbat Box info sheet in your box). We don't want to give to much away about it before the boxes go out, but lets just say we like to "tease." Some of you may get the hint, if you do, SHHHHH ;-)
Announcing the theme of the first Sabbat Box
"The Fires of Beltane." Being that Beltane is a Fire Festival and the general corresponding element is Fire, we felt it appropriate to connect the first box with the strong and masculine symbolism of fire.
Beltane is a time of growth, fertility, prosperity and manifestation. It is the time of year when the snow is all but gone and the fiery sun is ablaze, brining forth the new growth of nature. Our mother Earth is is waking from her slumber and spring has set the mark for renewal and life. The items you will be finding within your Beltane box coincide with these energies and each Beltane box will be filled with an abundance of information and Pagan products that will bring forth that magical spark within you to help jumpstart your Beltane festivities. Also, Sabbat Box members will be privy to some phenomenal exclusive items and features - just for being members. We don't want to give away too much before we ship the Beltane Boxes out, but we can promise you this, there will be products and magical inspiration in this box to last you a few more Beltanes!
We thank each and every one of you for taking part in this journey with us and look forward to the official unveiling on the April 20th!!!
Your Official Box Witch,
• A Beltane Declamation •"Let swing open the gates of summer!By leaping hare and serpent fire,By broom, by staff and cauldron pyre,We conjure thee, we conjure thee, we conjure thee,Oh white one, come!So shall it be."
