Witch’s Gazette – Magickal Newsletter Pub XXI

Victorian_woman_at_writing_desk-228x221Dear Reader: Hello and welcome to this latest installment of your  magickal newsletter. I hope every one is enjoying the season of Spring. Without further ado, lets delve into the:

CURRENT EVENTS: Spring sings to me every morning through my window. Nature is speaking out loud now, so we can hear its voice, through the singing of the birds, and the rustling sound leaves make when the wind dances through the trees branches. Spring explodes not only with the beauty of nature awaking from slumber, but with it own kind of music.

Music has been since time immemorial, an important part of the human experience. It has the capacity to change a mood, whatever the piece being played and the state of mind of the person listening to it.

Music resonates in our hearts,  and reverberates through the soul. Each melody is felt differently by each individual. What’s important is that it helps us transcend a moment, a situation, a mood.  Spiritually it is a powerful tool that aids in meditation, healing, spell work. In life, it inspires us, it can be a muse, that enters our senses and sparks the imagination. I say dear reader, let there always be music. It brings us closer as people of this earth, and it awakens our senses to the human riddle of who we really are.

“Music is the language of the Spirit. It opens the secret of life, bringing peace, abolishing strife” Kahlil Gibran

CRYSTAL BALL: A PEEK AT THE WEEK:

This week, exactly on Wednesday April 8th the Jupiter Retrograde ends at 9:57 a.m. PST.  The five month retrograde is over, and financial matters and plans start to move forward. Jupiter that expansive planet, gives a jolt of confidence, which heralds better times for the economy worldwide. This is the time to continue with whatever projects we have and march forward with assurance that hard work pays up, but its sweeter when Jupiter’s energies are lending a hand.

On Thursday April 9th at 9:00 p.m. PST. The Sun in Aries will conjunct Mercury/Aries. These two combined gives a push in the right direction to anything connected in the areas of communication, commerce, travel.

Then on Saturday April 11th at 8:28 a.m. PST. Venus enters Gemini. This combo also helps matters to continue moving forward. Gemini is a mutable air sign. It  likes to try new things that are out of the ordinary. With Mercury as the ruler of this sign, there is constant move and with Venus, the planet that likes to please, there is sure to be an influence of “what the heck, I deserve a change” sort of mood. Just remember, whatever decision you make during the four weeks their energies will be in effect, will leave an aftermath in its wake.

With life pulling me into a new direction, one that I have postponed traveling for a long time, it creates a desire in me of also pull this newsletter to new territory, new borders. My mind is already twirling ideas as to what these new changes will be for the Witch’s Gazette.

In the meantime, I want to thank everyone that has been a part of this experience. Thank you for taking the time to read through each post. I hope a brought a bit of laughter or smiles into your life, that I made you think with some of the subjects I wrote about in this newsletter. I hope as well, that I am leaving a sense of wonder, a sense of wanting to extend your wings and fly even further, to find your own sense of freedom, and expand your mind.

Until I write again.. blessed you be!♥

Vernal Equinox ~ Ostara~

Spring!

Spring!

March 20th – Vernal Equinox – First day of Spring! Moon enters Aries.

Finally the first day of Spring its here in all its glory – goodbye Winter blues, hello flowers  and beautiful gardens!

Like the flowers and animals around us, we  are once more awakening in a sense from winter’s slumber. Now we are ready to enjoy the brand new energies of this new season.

In ancient times, this day of equal light and darkness  was called Eostar or Ostara. This season of rebirth was the predecessor to the Christian holy day Easter.  According to lore back then eggs were eaten to promote prosperity and fertility. Eggs which are a symbol of life, and creativity, were  used as gifts to be exchanged and were colored yellow and gold, then given out as gifts or used in ritual in honor of the Sun and fecundity deities. The custom of coloring eggs has survived through the centuries. We can use organic coloring instead of store-bought coloring (like beet juice, grape juice, green tea, onion leaves etc.)

Spring brings out the natural urges of going with the flow and give our homes a deep cleaning, letting out the winter energies that have been shut in with us during that season, opening windows, cleansing not only in the physical but also spiritually.

An excellent time as well, to tackle those closets, put away winter items, prepare a box for things to be donated, decluter and organize!  A perfect time to clean out ritual tools, give a good cleaning to our Altars, get rid of old candles, clean out the old wax from candle holders, mop our floors with a good magickal herbal blend to chase away the blues. After all that hard work :=) we can relax and chill in a nice purifying bath of an herb of choice (marjoram, thyme, basil, rosemary, are a few good herbs to choose from) to help renew tired auras and worn out souls. If you want to take it yet one step further, you can after your cleansing bath, enjoy a nice cup of green tea, sweetened with honey! yum! Green tea is excellent for our body and mind.

I think the biggest challenge now that the season of Spring it’s here,  is to not overwhelm ourselves with a big “to do” list and at the end get frustrated at the rate of accomplishing those things on the list. After all try to keep in mind that all those things that got mysteriously tangled in the closet, the extra paper clips that seemed to have multiplied in your desk, and the cobwebs in dark corners of your home, did not materialize there in one day.  It is best to tackle one task at a time, do it well, feel a sense of accomplishment for having it done. This will leave you more relaxed and able to enjoy the brilliant colors that come out of earth through beautiful flowers, enjoy the weather, look up and see the brilliant sky and maybe get a show of birds flying by getting material for their nests.. or one where birds are fighting  for a certain  mate.. aah! nature!  it does have a sense of humor  :=)

Happy Spring & BB!
