The Beauty of Winter

NT3

Merry meet all,

The winter chill bites at us as we bustle about town. I walked on the nature trail this morning and I took some beautiful photos of the garden and snowy leaves. Magically speaking, Mercury has turned direct. I am relieved, to say the least. The Moon has entered Aries and Neptune has gone direct. 

The Full Moon comes on the 17th. The Full Moon begins at 10 am and enters Gemini. Gemini is an air sign and represents the time for shortcuts, communication, games, and fun. Have a magical and fun esbat on the 17th! This full moon is known as the Hunter’s Moon and Snow Moon. Concentrate on the transition from fall to winter and how gracefully nature turns season. Think of how you can honor a transition occurring in your life and how you can accept the changes it brings. Decorate your altar and light white candles. Snow is pure and cold. 

The Celtic Tree Month of Elder begins on November 25th. Before we know it, the Wheel of the Year will turn to Yule. I’ll post more about how to prepare for Yule. 

 

Blessed Be,

Lady Spiderwitch )O(

Lunar Gardening Magick

Merry Meet All,

The New Moon rules the sky. The moon is waxing. This is a powerful time for our gardens. The moon creates more moisture in the soil during new moon and waxing moon. The sun is larger than the moon but the moon is closer to the earth. The tides are affected by the gravitational pull of the moon. All of the plants in my garden from new moon to waning moon will have more moisture in the soil. I wish that would save me the hard work to water my garden. I have to fill my jug ten times to water my garden. Waxing moon is a great time to do some natural magick in or for your garden. It’s a good time to attract things towards you and to appeal to the God and Goddess or faeries to help your plants grow.

The earth exhales during the waxing moon and the sap goes above ground into the plants. That is a good time to help plants grow that grow above ground. The waning moon is when the sap goes below ground and is when the earth inhales. That is the time to do weeding, pruning, and helping plants to grow that grow below ground. That means that I was on time when my Mother and I pruned the tree suckers and cut the overgrown trees during the recent waning moon.

This is why I waited till waning moon to plant my carrot seeds in the big deep pot. I knew that waning moon is the perfect time to plant seeds, like carrots, because carrots grow below ground. I also planted my radishes in the planter because they grow below ground. Now all the energy will be drawn into the plants that grow above ground.

Work your lunar magick for your garden with these guidelines. May the Goddess bless your gardens!!

Blessed Be,

Moon energy

Merry Meet All,

Monday brings the energy of Gemini in today. Gemini is a playful sign. Gemini meets with the vibration of Ceres earlier today. Ceres has a mothering energy to it. The energy of Ceres fits well, since Monday is a moon-day. Monday is associated with the moon, peace, healing, and psychic awareness.

The colour correspondences are grey, lavender, white and silver. The moon is waxing towards Full Moon. This is the ideal time to draw things to you. Cast a circle tonight under the growing moon and consider what you hope to attract, whether that is a new job, a fertile garden, or romance. Mercury has gone direct, which should make correspondences with other people easier. This is a magically potent time. Take advantage of that. Also, think of what you can offer to the gods/ goddesses you worship or the deity you honour. They shine more favourably on you when you leave offerings.

Soon it will be time to invite the faeries to assist you in your garden. The earth is stirring. The light half of the year is here.

Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch )O(
