As the cardinal season dawns with the Spring Equinox sabbat of Ostara, it is time to fertilize our seeds of intention. This is a powerful time for releasing what we thought we knew and ask big, new questions, opening our minds to new possibilities, and asking Divinity to reveal the truth that would be for our highest good at this time.

SPELLCRAFT:

Wood Betony New-Beginnings Foot Oil:

LOTUS NEW MOON ENERGY OIL

This spell moves old energy out of a room and replaces it with new energy. 

This oil can also be used for anointing candles, tools and crystals for use in other spells with the same purpose. 

WHAT YOU NEED:

A mixing bowl

1 cup safflower oil

2 tablespoons dried blue lotus flower

1 tablespoon dried chopped birch bark

1 tablespoon dried elderberries

1 tablespoon dried white horehound

A jar with a tightly fitting lid

WHAT TO DO:

Before you make the oil, open at least one window in the room you’re woking in to allow old energies to move out and new ones to come in.l If possible, open a window in everyo room of the house, even in a hallway or staircase. 

In the bowl combine all of the ingredients, then put the mixture in the jar.

Pour some of the oil into the palm of your hand and rub your hands together quicky to raise the energy.

Stand in the middle of the room, ground yourself, and focus on your intent.

Now with lots of energy and exaggerated movemens, clap your hands 3 times, each time saying out loud, “Out with the old and in with the new!”

You can also ring a bell through your space or home,, walking from room to room. You can say the same phrase, or sing a tune of intention as you do so.

The shift in the air happens immediately. If you’re sensitive to feeling beyond our Earthly realm, you’ll feel the peace flowing into your home, or space that you’ve cleared.

When you’ve finished the spell, replace the lid on the jar and store the mixture until you need it again.

JOURNAL PROMPTS: SET GOALS

Some questions to ask yourself around the theme of EMERGENCE this Spring Equinox / Ostara season:

Which of my resolutions am I ready to start taking action on? 

What might that look like?

And which of my resolutions are still feeling a bit fragile?

Do I need to re-evaluate my goals and intentions, or do I just need to take some baby steps toward those goals until they feel more tangible? Or do I just want to dive right in with massive action?

Some questions to ask yourself around the theme of RE-CALIBRATION this Spring Equinox / Ostara season:

What did I learn about myself this Winter that I wasn’t as aware of last year this time?

How can I use the information I gathered during the self-reflection time of Winter to step into a more confident and outgoing version of myself this Spring?

Some questions to ask yourself around the theme of the INNER CHILD this Spring Equinox / Ostara season:

Who is my Inner Child? What does my Inner Child love about life?

What do they love to do and experience?

What can I do this Spring to evoke my Inner Child into my practice and/or my everyday life?

PULL 3 CARDS

Card 1 – What do I need to lay to rest with the departure of winter?

Card 2 – Where in my life can I stand to have balance?

Card 3 – What do I need to embrace with the coming of the light ?

HAPPY SPRING WITCHES!
