Living Fae at The Gathering 23 Year Anniversary Dance Celebration – December 13th

Living Fae is honored to be creating altars and sacred space at The Gathering 23 Year Anniversary Dance Celebration – December 13th. We will be doing a special candle lighting ceremony at the beginning of the evening to celebrate the light and to light the flames of inspiration and love! Put on your dancing shoes and come out and dance at what is sure to be a fun evening filled with good vibes, great people and music! This event is sure to sell out so get your tickets in advance. Look for us on the dance floor by following the trail of faerie dust!

MARKIE, TONY, GALEN, DUTCH, ANTHONY MANSFIELD, NICO LUMINIOUS, LITTLE JOHN, SEAN MURRAY, MIHKAL, DUSTY CARTER, SMASHELTOOTH, HARRY WHO, DMAJIK –
MORE DJs TO BE ANNOUNCED – stay tuned

The Gathering 23 year anniversary will take place at The Factory, 525 Harrison Street in San Francisco, on Saturday December 13th, 10pm to 6am. The very first Gathering was held in this same location way back in 1991 when it was an old church in disrepair. The event was underground-style with no permits, and we raved until nine in the morning. The energy created helped launch over two decades of top-notch parties.

This will be the very last Gathering at this location as there are plans in 2015 to tear down the facility in order to build high-rise condos – another sign of our ever-changing city.

The Gathering is one of the foundation parties of the San Francisco and U.S. rave scene. At the onset we started as four smaller parties coming together to throw a big community event and bring the scenes together. It has a solid reputation for great music, a positive environment, and friendly loving people.

The Gathering is so very proud to present our 23 year anniversary to help to bring the families together so people can see old friends and hear familiar tunes, experience current music, and meet new people in a positive loving environment.

How to Honor Autumn Equinox ~ Mabon

arthur-rackham-joy-of-a-fallen-leaf

Happy Mabon Faeries! The Wheel of the Year turns yet again. Today marks the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere where there is equal balance between light and dark / day and night. We celebrate the fall harvest and the coming cool evenings as the nights continue to grow longer.

I don’t know about you, but I love fall. It’s a nostalgic time of the year that reminds me of being a child and all the fun the fall season brings. All the yummy flavors and fun events…. pumpkin treats, apple cider, hot cocoa, Halloween, cozy sweaters and boots.

Traditionally Mabon is a harvest festival to honor the God and Goddess to secure their blessings in the coming winter months. It’s a time of relaxation, balance and a time to honor the spiritual mysteries and the spirit world. Symbols of the season are wine, gourds, pine cones, acorns, grains, corn, apples, pomegranates, vines such as ivy, dried seeds, and horns of plenty. You might consider using these items on your Mabon altar or in a feast to honor the season. Colors associated with this time of year are red, orange, maroon, browns and golds. Deities often associated with Mabon are: Goddesses – Modron, Morgan, Epona, Persephone, Pamona and the Muses. Gods – Thoth, Thor, Hermes, and The Green Man.

Some good activities to celebrate are making cider, gathering herbs, taking a walk in the woods, visiting a local farm for harvest, offering libations or offerings to trees and ancestors, gathering leaves and acorns, building a seasonal altar and having a harvest feast. It is also a good time for spell workings for protection, prosperity, balance and security.

I find that no matter what is going on in life it’s always good to take some time out and honor the season. I used to get sad to see summer pass knowing that the winter wasn’t far off. Nowadays by honoring traditions of the season it sets a tone, and appreciation for the season. It makes me feel optimistic and hopeful about life and to be grateful for all I have in this moment.

I plan on building an altar using fall colors and fall flowers and making incense offerings to the faeries and my spirit guides to offer my gratitude for all the blessings in my life. I am also going to cook a harvest feast and share it with my loved ones. Since this season is all about balance I also plan to take a hike in the woods at a local favorite spot so I can exercise my body and connect with the spirits of the woods.

I hope this inspires you to take time out, in whatever way feels right to you to celebrate and honor the Autumn Equinox. Happy Mabon to all! Wishing bright blessings of abundance and happiness with golden glittering showers of faerie dust and magic to you and those you love.

Love, light and faerie dust!
