Closeup of my daffodils gifted me, before I moved my altar along the wall.
My altar was set up at midnight of March 20, 2015. The day prior I went for a walk outside looking for the evidence of Spring, you can see photos on my blog Cabin Fever Confessions. During my prayer & meditation I wore a ribbon crown, made with soft pink and yellow curled ribbons. I listened to a Ostara inspired YouTube playlist.
Using the selenite sphere gifted to me for me and my sweets 8th year anniversary, I cleansed my crown chakra. There is also a stone set out specifically for the fae. Spring time is a wonderful time to invite the magick of faeries into your life! Yesterday, I was looking at painted eggs from Russia in a local shop and completely forgot to purchase it for the altar. I think I will be making egg based foods today in honor of the season.
There were chants and displays of gratitude for the gifts that Spring brings us! Blessed Ostara to you all! Welcome Spring! We awaken you! Welcome Spring! We honor You!

Tonight’s full moon is the smallest full moon of the year. We’ve heard it called the micro-moon or mini-moon. This March 5, 2015 full moon lies about 50,000 kilometers (30,000 miles) farther away from Earth than will the year’s closest full moon – the full supermoon and Northern Hemisphere’s Harvest Moon – on September 28. The March 5 moon is the year’s farthest full moon because full moon and lunar apogee – the moon’s farthest point in its monthly orbit – both fall on the same date. – Via earthsky.org
That’s what I read yesterday and what inspired me to do some banishing type magick. When I read “micro” I thought this would be an excellent time to use the power of the moon to help me reduce/minimize an unwanted habit/desire/thought etc until it was no longer visible within myself or my life.
It was a quick ritual, most of the prepping and intention set inside my home. The rest performed outside, under the moonlight. It felt fantastic. I didn’t use any particular wording this time, using only my mind’s eye to see what I desired to happen. I also took out my “The Psychic Tarot” deck by John Holland and did a quick reading for myself and then, went to bed early to concentrate on taking care of my body & spirit.
It’s not the best photo. The moon itself was absolutely amazing, so large-so bright – it shone like a beacon in the sky! I was incredibly happy to see the moon as the night before there was serious cloud cover and sometimes it’s just not dark enough to see celestial occurrences in Alaska.
For the couple of days before the super moon, I felt extremely bad and it only worsened by Saturday. My body felt racked, exhausted. My emotions were plummeting. Once I saw that bright beacon of a super moon however, my heart soared. Suddenly having more pep I put my magickal items on the window sill, including a jar of water. I cleansed myself and my home with sage and prayers, after that I did two tarot card readings using my “Tarot of the Witches” deck by Fergus Hall. A career reading for my guy and a love reading for me 🙂
We ate some snacks and drank a little ale, it was a good night. Blessed be )0(
