Merry meet all,
The mischievous spirits in my apartment are at it again. I do own a cat. I was in my broom closet today and for some inexplicable reason, I sense something the second I enter it. My broom closet creeps me out. I get an eerie feeling in there but my cat seems at ease. I hate that. What a better way to wonder if you are crazy than to be bettered by a chilled out cat. Then she enters the bathroom and avoids my eye. I smudged the closet with sage which set off my alarm. Oh great.
My house makes noises. It is an old building. I understand that but what I don’t understand is when those sounds don’t sound normal. Nothing explains things moving on their own or sounds of things falling and nothing having moved. I have heard the sound of a mop/ broom falling yet when I check, nothing has moved. I found my cauldron on the floor. It had fallen from the top of the fridge to the floor on its own. I welcome all and any explanations on that one. I had no cat at that time. The cauldron is made of heavy cast iron.
I bought myself a real crow foot necklace. I love crows and even fear them a little. I shall always remember the time a crow warned me of a death. To a normal person, it might seem creepy. To me, I bought it because it IS creepy. I like creepy. I like crows and they still follow me everywhere. I plan to leave them offerings soon once the snow melts.
I have no qualms about using animal bones, animal or human skulls, or feathers in my Craft practice. I do believe that these items should be clean and free of potential parasites or disease. Once the tools are clean, they are safe to use. But I am certain it is the way our ancestors practiced and I have included a link below that tells more about it.
There are many ways that animal parts can be used in magic. My animal skull rests by the photo of my grandfather. I am fond of it because animals trusted my grandfather, even wild animals, so it seems appropriate to place it there. I have a bone and piece of wood that looks like bone by the Odin statue.
The Full Moon this month is powerful. It is a Super Rare Blood Blue Moon. It will bring clarity and would be a powerful time to clear away what is negative to welcome in the positive. Be sure to perform an esbat.
Imbolc is the next turn in the Wheel of the Year. I plan to perform a ritual with Sacred Mists online. I also plan to celebrate Imbolc on my own. Imbolc is the first Sabbat of spring. I don’t enjoy winter but now I can anticipate the return of spring. This is the time to stock up on seeds and plan. I will post more about spring here soon.
Blessings, Spiderwitch )O(
