Well, here we have a lovely autumn day, a wee bit of rain, but that's to be expected in the Fall, and a picnic with Mabon and Modron, the God and Goddess of the harvest and the guardians of personal transformation. Mabon, the Emperor, brought fruit salad--see him standing beneath the Tree of Life, which bears apples, grapes, and all kinds of other good autumnal fruits, from some of which he also crafted the mead he brewed for us to sip. He is welcoming us to his beautiful forest, where the autumn leaves are changing, and inviting us to sit and sip some mead and enjoy the fruits of his labors, as well as collecting, surveying, and applying the fruits of our own.
And there with him is our lovely Empress, the great Mother Modron, just coming off the moon-barge that has carried her into the sea where she has caught our fish, crabs, lobsters and all the other delights of our seafood salad to complete the meal. The all-seeing eye and the snake wrapped comfortably around her arm are there to remind us that after we enjoy and digest this autumnal feast, we will also be transformed, in many unique and positive ways, creating our own inner feast of our deep and sacred Self. Use this time of year, and the guidance of the Great Mother, to see within the Self, change the skin while keeping the essence, and become more than one was the prior years. But for now, there's seafood salad, fruit salad, and fresh mead, and the Empress and Emperor to host and entertain us. Let's eat!
