Awaiting Spring’s return


Merry meet all,

Tomorrow night the  moon enters its’s second quarter. The moon is currently in Aries and shifts to Taurus tomorrow. Next week, the Full Moon shines on February 14th. Mercury goes Retrograde tomorrow at 4:43 pm and goes direct on February 28. Brace yourselves! On Feb.18th, the Celtic Tree Month of Ash begins. 

The Wheel spins once more next month. Ostara occurs on March 21, 2014. Ostara is the Spring Equinox and is the second of the three spring Sabbats. There is a lot to look forward to.

A seed catalogue arrived in the mail. I pore over it in my spare time. I am already planning my garden. I can’t wait to get my hands in the soil. I’ve started an indoor mini veggie garden that I will move outdoors as soon as the weather is ideal. 

Spring is something to always look forward to. 

Blessed Be,

Faeries Inspiration

Merry Meet All,

Tomorrow night is Storm Moon. The 27th of March is the time of the Full Moon. She will shine strong and grace the night sky. The Storm moon banishes winter’s stagnant energy to welcome spring. Snow lingers here on the curbs and sidewalks. But each passing day the snow is less and less. Soon the earth will be clothed in fresh new greenery. Here is the photo of my Celtic green cape that I made myself, mostly by hand. That includes the triskele symbol and the green oak leaves, the pattern of the oak leaves were inspired by actual oak leaves!

I had a dilemma tonight to piece an outfit together for the Public Ritual that is taking place on March 29. The Ritual will be held at the UU Church on Inglis Street. I had to choose between a great dress that is not finished or a green dress that is simpler but complete. In the end, I chose the complete fairy dress. It complements the green cape. The dress and cape are from the same pattern. If you watched the version of Midsummer’s Night Dream with Michelle Pfeiffer, you will know what I am referring to. Here is a photo from the movie:

I have a gold butterfly crown (Lord of the Rings), leaf earrings, and the Arwen pendant. I am all set. Now I can relax, knowing I have an outfit to wear, and will have a good time.

Also, tomorrow night is Full Moon, and the night after that is a poetry reading. I promise to keep you all informed of these sure to be fun events. Stay tuned for more postings.

Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch
