I’ve been hearing whispers (and moans and groans), all over the place today. And no, I’m not talking about politics and awful people; we all know that’s the usual mess. I’m talking about energy levels and spiritual and magickal malaise. Solar flares and blood moons and retrogrades, oh my
Now, I’m no astrologer, but retrograde planets have as many, and often even MORE positive influences than negative. So, how about we all take a moment to breathe in all the goodness that our Mama and this Universe has to offer?
If you’re feeling specifically hinky in a particular area of your life, (for instance if you’re
sadder or more emotional than usual, or if you seem to be having communication troubles), then take a minute to actually check out what the planets are doing and find a reliable source for interpreting that. Otherwise, have a little cleansing, clear the air, take a magickal bath and let the stress or sadness flow down the drain. Then do some recharging. If that means lighting a candle and meditating, great. If it means playing in the pool or watering your garden or petting your cat… do that. And while you’re at it, do those actual, concrete things that will improve the situation. If it’s a communication issue, be sure that you are communicating clearly, etc. You get it. As above, so below, right?
Here in Thorne’s World and Thorne’s Garden, life is good. Mama Earth is giving up her bounty, even though she’s moving slowly in this desert heat. Our deep well of clean, clear water makes its way up to irrigate our garden each evening then slowly the leftovers seep back into the depths. I’m finding my joy in growing things, in pollinating bees, in a little granddaughter who won’t eat store bought veggies on her dinner plate, but eats everything she can get her hands on in the garden.
Inside during the hottest part of the day today, I did a little altar cleaning/cleansing and blessing/reconsecrating. This is my Northern Altar. I do a lot of my magickal work here. I also have Eastern, Western and Southern altars, but those are stories for another day.
I have some new tools I want to consecrate to my magickal use in mixing and pouring and blending and generally making magick for you all. So, today I leave you with a few garden and altar photos, but stay tuned. I feel a little article on cleansing, consecrating and charging coming on.
