As the spirit of Mabon abounds, this time surrounding autumn equinox invites us to pause and find balance in our lives. It’s a time of harvest, reflection, and gratitude for the abundance of the season. What better way to tap into this energy than by using divination tools like Tarot cards or runes? Let’s explore how to harness the power of divination for self-reflection and personal growth during Mabon.
Using Divination Tools for Mabon:
1. Set the Scene: find a quiet, comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed. Light a candle and perhaps some incense to create a serene atmosphere and begin the ritual.
2. Choose Your Divination Tool: select a divination tool that resonates with you. Tarot cards, runes, or even a pendulum can work beautifully. The key is to choose what feels right for your practice.
3. State Your Intention: before you begin, set a clear intention for your Mabon divination session. What do you want to gain insight into? It could be related to your goals for the upcoming season, areas of your life where you seek balance, or simply a question about some of your reflections.
4. Shuffle and Infuse: shuffle your Tarot cards, shake your runes, and prepare your chosen divination tool by infusing it with your intentions. As you do so, focus on the energies of Mabon as well.
5. Draw or Cast: when you feel ready, draw a card (or rune) or otherwise cast your divination tool. Trust your intuition and let the symbols speak to you. Use your own intuitive spread, or the sample Mabon Spread provided below, to further enhance the meaning of each card.

3. Connect with Nature: step outside and connect with nature. Take a walk, gather fallen leaves, or simply sit in a park. Nature often provides profound insights during this season.
