Horn of Plenty.
Spilling with gourds, fruits, grains and flowers, this beloved emblem of abundance and good fortune has presided over harvest festivals, feasts and revelry since time immemorial.
Today it still adorns Thanksgiving tables for decorative purposes, but it was once a revered ritual object symbolizing the unlimited procreative powers of mother nature.
Some believe the cornucopia’s origins date to the upper Palaeolithic and Neolithic, when animal horns were placed on stone altars to evoke invoke the blessings of the bountiful all giving mother, the great goddess who in her cow incarnation, nourished the world through her horns of plenty.
To honor the foremothers, the herb chanters, plant healers and wise women, go out and gather wild foods into your basket and give thanks for the abundance provided by mother nature to fortify us in the coming winter. Then using the magical art of intention, evoke the horn of plenty to bless this harvest.
May you be blessed with prosperity and abundance this season of harvest!

Mabon incantation for Balance
Equal night and day
we celebrate the balance of Mabon,
and ask the goddesses and gods to bless us.
For that which is bad, there is good.
For that which is hopelessness, there is hope.
For that which is pain, there is love.
For that which has fallen shall rise again.
May we find balance in our hearts and in our lives.
HONORING YOUR ANCESTORS
Please remember to always treat them with respect. Keep your altar clean and if you really don’t have time once a week for a small service to them then wait until you do have the time. You can give them a small candle or a vigil, some smoke and a cool glass of water. If you have graveyard dirt from their graves a small amount can be placed on their altar. They should be given special treat at least once a month; this can be something that they really loved in life. If they had a special flower, fruit, cake, perfumes, or maybe a favorite song, try to share these things with them.
Honoring the Ancestors
What you do is approach the altar, knock three times, call on the ancestors and tell them who you are. You then tell them why you have come (to honor them). Then you pick up your glass and add water to it, hold the glass to your heart, then up above your head, say something
like I offer you this water to quench your thirst. Do the same thing with the whiskey, candle, the cigar and a piece of bread. Talk a bite out of the bread and say “I share this meal with you my beloved ancestors”. Talk to them for a while, tell them how you miss them, and have not
forgotten them. Ask your ancestors for their blessing in your daily life ask them to help you have good health, love, and prosperity. Then light a white candle for them dressed with blessing oil. You then say a prayer for them.

Sumerian song to Inanna
Heaven is mine, the earth is mine
I am warrior am I
Is there a god who can vie with me?
The gods are sparrows-I am a falcon
The gods trundle along
I am a splendid wild cow.
