Merry Meet All,
Happy Easter!! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Here, the weather is beautiful, my snowdrops are blossoming, and the air is crisp and fresh. It is like a real spring day. The next turn in the Wheel of the Year is Beltaine, as many of you know, and that happens on May 1st. Today the moon enters Sagittarius and the colour of the day is black.
Ah spring. Spring is muddy, raw, fertile. Spring is the reawakening of the earth, the return of greenery, the rebirth of plants. I prefer summer personally but nothing cheers my heart more than seeing tiny buds emerge from the soil. The buds defy winter.
April is a time when winter is fading and spring is returning. It is the in between time of the seasons. We see patches of snow on the ground and the muddy fresh soil. This is the time when people think about their gardens. Consider performing a ritual to welcome back the faeries and guardians of the garden.
You can perform this ritual indoors or outdoors. It would be better outdoors since this is to request the guardians of your garden to bless your garden.
Say this aloud: (Light a stick of incense and a candle.)
Faery guardians come and play,
Bright blessings to the Fae,
Guard and bless my garden
on this day,
Charm my garden to grow!”
Meditate and visualize faeries dancing around your garden. Bring the candle indoors and allow the incense to burn itself out. Cast off the shackles of winter. Spring is here!!
