Ostara 2015

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!

Healing Light Burning Bright

My orange candle burning brightly, just as it was. No other edits outside of adding text.

“Healing Light, Burning Bright, Set Me Free of Pain Tonight ~so mote it be” ~ )0(
Is the chant I came up with looking at this lovely candle. I envisioned my pain being a tangible thing and burning up in the cleansing fire and carried away in the smoke. There are health issues and as mentioned, pain that I have been addressing.

Today, I had a massage. It was lovely, it was intense. During one point, the pressure was building but I felt my pain releasing. It was that time that I invited the goddess to join to me, to include her in the healing and soul-nourishing treatment.  Beautiful imagery of people with animal heads appeared to me in my mind’s eye. Still the height of the massage brought a bit more pain, it was during that time that I silently let go of so many things. The words swirled around in my brain until they were gone. Thankful to my masseuse for the treatment and to the goddess for her presence.

New Moon Scrying

This image was taken from a post by Selena Fox on her FB page, I hold no copyright to it.

Yesterday, during the partial eclipse I was looking at current posts on my Facebook news feed.  I came across this image in a post by Selena Fox, including a new moon chant: “New Moon Healing in New Moon Rite — New Moon Magic on New Moon Night!”  I began quietly chanting in my mind and mouthing the words while staring at the image on my cellphone. Naturally, there was some reflection on the glass and although I did see my face I saw more that surprised me.  The image of my face didn’t look like myself as I do now, instead it became an old and weathered face. Perhaps 30-40 years from now. I saw my beauty had more than faded, it was gone. It was a very short and quick epiphany to work on what others and myself see beyond my outward image/persona. A calling to find my inner beauty and let it shine!

August 13, 2014 Offering to Hekate, Alaska

I walked through the woods and invited Hekate to join me, and I thanked her for her gifts. The honey cakes were left at the base of a tree with a fairy door in front. An offering to the goddess and to the other side which we might not see.
