Hello my friends. And I hope everyone is well. We are just a couple days from the full moon, so I hope everyone’s full moon intentions are in order. If they’re not, don’t panic. There will be another full moon next month. We have to practice patience with ourselves sometimes. If we don’t have the energy to pour into a moon ritual or whatever the case may be, then we need to respect that. Sometimes we do need to push ourselves, sometimes that is the right thing to do, but when it comes to the craft, our practice should be something that we look forward to. It isn’t meant to be another task on the to-do list. It’s important to cultivate habits and to have discipline, I do whole-heartedly believe that, but we need to recognize when we’re just going through the motions.
Welcome, welcome to the Ostara episode! I love doing sabbat episodes; they’re my favorite. Sabbats are just the funnest part of being a witch. And the Spring Equinox, or Ostara, is always such a breath of fresh air because it’s the first day of spring, it’s the first major Sabbat after Yule, and the symbolism is so gorgeous and fresh and lovely. The Spring Equinox, just like the Autumn Equinox, marks the day the sun crosses the celestial equator, when day and night are equal length. This is the day when we are officially on the other side of winter, the days from here forward grow longer, the weather gets warmer, the grass gets greener, we can begin to work our gardens. It’s just such a revitalizing time.
Hello, and welcome. Today is my baby sister’s birthday. She is 37 today and happy birthday, Dewey. I hope you are all well, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, I hope it brings you peace. Today we are going to talk about working with deities, gods and goddesses. But before I get into that, I want to just talk for a minute about something I notice a lot when folks message me or email me.
