Latest stone edition. I really should do a post on each of my stones/crystals.
I have neglected my spiritual side. My ancestors have been calling to me, in hopes to reconnect me with my spiritual path and I am ready. This turitella agate stone has been something that’s caught my eye previously, and now I finally have one. It’s a rough cut, but I love the snail and small insect/creature patterns found inside it.
Today, I held this stone in my hands and prayed for my ancestors to hear me. I spoke my mother and fathers names, and called to my ancient bloodlines. I asked for messages, and thanked them for their blessings & presence.
Selenite sphere, chalcedony, moss agate, amethyst, yellow jade and what I’m calling rutilated pink quartz.

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!
Silver RavenWolf- “Saturn turns direct bringing his influence out into the open.Rules and limits?Yes- but vast rewards as well with better personal guidelines. Your Magickal Challenge for Today: Line up 3 small stones. Name 3 things you want to banish. Outside, throw the stones as hard as you can off your property, yelling “Be Gone!” Ahem. Just don’t hit anyone.” (source)
Later today, most likely around sunset (which will be late here in Alaska) I will throw my three stones! I am very much looking forward to Saturn turning direct!
**Update** I did throw my stones, that were actually bigger than most likely necessary just before midnight. It felt great to cast them off!
