The Beauty of Winter


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(

Winds of Change

Merry Meet Everyone,

Have you felt the stirrings of early spring? Spring is here and winter, the Crone’s time, is pushed down to make way for the time of the Maiden. The young sprouts push out of the frozen yet unthawing cold earth. Buds are ripe to bursting on the tree boughs. The wind is slightly harsh yet warm at the same time. Change is coming.

I welcome the change of the seasons. I always look forward to spring. I have a garden and am excited about the new green shoots in the garden. My woodruff, lemon balm, chives, yarrow, lady’s mantle, crocuses, snowdrops and tulips are the first to show their green faces. I cleared away the leaves to reveal the dark soil beneath.

I have other changes in my life, besides gardening. My landlord is retiring from being a landlord and is now passing on the crown to someone else, so to speak. I have made changes to my wardrobe. I think there is room for more so I eagerly await to see what may come my way. Are you finding spring heralding any changes in your own lives? Take stock and record it in your personal journal or Book of Shadows. Take time for reflection. Welcome change in all of its forms. I hope that the winds of change bring to you what you hoped for.

Blessed Be,
lady Spiderwitch
