Focus: Joy, wonder, love, fertility. New, bright beginnings and the reminder that when the cup of spirit is full, joy overflows it. I know a lot of us carry sadness and this time of year can bring the well of grief bubbling up to the surface. I try to remember the beautiful words of Kahlil Gibran, from The Prophet, during those times.
Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
And how else can it be?
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter’s oven?
And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
What’s on the table in Thornesworld? Apothecary magick!
Have I mentioned that I’m a messy witch? Which is why I cover my tile with paper before I pour. Just look at that mess! The paper is also good for scribbling notes so I know what I poured, where.
Today I made, Auntie Thorne’s Winter Rub, Unscented, Bergamot Lavender, and Lemon Peppermint Body Butter Bars and some Peppermint Lip Balm. Don’t forget to pick up a tin of Auntie Thorne’s Balm for cuts and scrapes as well as deep tissue injuries while you’re here. The Lip Balm isn’t listed yet, but leave me a comment or inbox me on Facebook or Patreon and it shall fly to you for only $6.50 with free US shipping.
