Sabbat Sketches – Mabon (Persephone)

Blessed Mabon everyone 🍂

In my practice, this is when Persephone heads back to the Underworld – not fully in Her power as Queen there, yet, but beginning Her descent and Her reunion with Hades.

Life is a part of Her, the rebirth and the green, but so is the harvest and the falling leaves. The oncoming cold and the care of lost, broken souls. She must miss that part of Herself.

May Her reclaiming of that role be smooth and welcome, may Her Bountiful Mother let Her go with acceptance, if not understanding.

And may Their love be strong as ever, and be our reminder to take care of each other.

Sabbat Sketches – Imbolc (Persephone)

Almost late, but Blessed Imbolc everyone 🌱🍃🌹

I wanted a break from doing fae-cultural specific Sabbat Sketches, so this year we’ll be focusing on Queen Persephone (who I’ve been blessedly drawn to lately) and Her cycle through the seasons with Her husband Hades and Her mother Demeter! I feel like it’s going to be a challenge, but I am quite excited and very pleased with this first drawing.

As for their cycle together, I believe right now that the King and Queen of the Underworld are enjoying one last sabbat together below, before Persephone returns to the world above, when spring fully blooms. 💗

Sketch – Blessed Beltane (Gnomish)

Happy slightly-belated May Day, everyone! By the Love of the Lady and the Lord, may the Earth flower ~~<3

Featuring Gnomish Hades and Persephone at the bottom, but they couldn’t be the main couple here because they’re technically separated this time of year (so instead, we get some sapphic “Lord” and Lady smooches). Still, I had to include them, since they are one of my most beloved representations of the God and Goddess.

This one was very fun to do. Hope your day was lovely, everyone, no matter what you celebrate.
