Midwinter

Whispered:

Feel us now, we are the stars
Feel us now, we are the sea
Feel us now as the magic flowing within your heart
We are the wind that kisses the trees…

We come softly through the night
As evening falls behind us
Our footsteps leave no mark upon the snow
Let your spirit go, it will find us

We come adorned in spider web and dew
Through woodland to the meadow
We come luminous and bright
Dancing with the light and the shadow…

The winter moon is calling us to play
A sacred light to guide us
The wild music leads us in a trance
Spinning to the dances inside us

The air is cold and echoes with the sound
Of laughter rising higher
With drums and bells
We sing into the night
Dancing in the light of the fire

We weave a music curiously pure
A crystal song suspended
We fly on wings diaphanous as light
Dancing till the long night is ended

We come ancient as the moon
As new as every season
We come as fire, as icicle, as leaf
Suspend your disbelief and your reason…

Feel us now surrounding you
We are the wind that kisses the trees
Feel us now inside of you
A fairy heart that’s guiding you home…

Snake Woman

(by Starhawk)

Snake woman shedding her skin.
(Snake woman shedding her skin.)

Shedding, Shedding, shedding her skin.
(Shedding, Shedding, shedding her skin.)

Snake woman shedding her skin.
(Snake woman shedding her skin.)

Shedding, Shedding, shedding her skin.
(Shedding, Shedding, shedding her skin.)

 

Bird woman taking flight…

Star Woman shining bright…

Moon Woman riding the night…

Blossom Woman opening wide…

Snake Woman shedding her skin…

(Spyder systers weaving their web …)

One Spirit

(PJ Seale)

One spirit in the dark,
Like a candle waivers.
Many spirits joined as one,
Burn with the power of the blazing sun.
There is strength in community,
A circle empowering you and me.
The circle binds yet sets us free,
In the Goddess’ name, so mote it be.

Rose Orange Potpourri

rose_orange_potpourri

Happy Spring Equinox! We made these at Imbolc and shared them at Ostara. In case you wanted to make some rose-orange potpourri of your own… This makes about 10 sachets with about ½ cup mix in each.

  • 1 qt. dried rose petals
  • 1 cup dried orange or clementine peels
  • 1/2 c. dried lavender
  • 2 tbsp. whole cloves
  • 1 vanilla bean (cut or broken into small pieces)
  • 2 sticks cinnamon (crushed)
  • 1 oz. dried orris 
  • 20 drops orange essential oil

Mix everything dry together in a large bowl. Add the 20 drops of orange. Mix it again. Store in a 2 qt glass jar for 6 weeks for scents to blend. Shake periodically. Spoon into sachet bags when ready.
