Healing Witchcraft, Spellwork & Permaculture. @ White Mare Sanctuary 2019.⚜️🇨🇭🇺🇸

Excerpt:

The most permaculturally magical window for spellwork alignment with Mother Earth lies within the period of soil depletion at Equinox, for here, the Earth rests at it’s lowest life vitality level, creating a perfect soil environment for beginning the growth of a new soil life cycle.

As the Sun transits from Summer Solstice towards Autumn Equinox, September 22nd, the robust soil vitality of Mother Earth in the northern hemisphere that peaked at the Solstice prepares for it’s waneful rest between the Equinox and Winter Solstice, then makes it’s way back to bursting vitality in Spring Equinox. Geologists and adept Gardeners refer to this as Soil Vitality and analyze it by observing the soil moisture index within the Solar cycles – meaning soil quality and health changes with sun and moisture. We’ll be covering the influence of Permaculture, the study of Earth and Soil Vitality, and it’s spiritual energy that influences our individual and personal spiritual growth and development, magical gardens and spell work, and manifestation during this particular Solar cycle.

Keeping in mind that we are all creatures formed of Earth, with geological components making up the bodies we inhabit, there is a strong energy bond between the Earth and our own bodies and internal energy fields and chakras as it correlates to the Sun and planets in our own personal natal chart with the planets of the moment.

As Earth Soil Vitality peaks at Summer Solstice, so do the spiritual healing energies that affect our body, mind and spirit. We lounge in lush green meadows, stroll leisurely upon the forest floor inhaling the sweet scent of wildflowers, as our psyches are nurtured within the soft warm peace of the majestic trees all around us, and a clear azure sky above us. We feel good. We are charged with new Earth energies that we can feel within our own body. We have more energy and the joy and desire for adventure and exploration. The Earth is growing a fertile harvest, and so are we, as spirits, collectively and individually. Endocrinology studies note that at Summer Solstice, there is an increase in the follicular stimulating hormone in female animal species, and leutinizing hormone and testosterone in male species that increases fertility and reproduction. Leutinizing hormone in male deer increases from August / Lughnasadh to September/ Autumn Equinox, reflecting the rut season. Human birthrates in northern hemispheres of Canada and Europe are highest in late winter and early spring, reflecting a high rate of conception during the period between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox.

In Permaculture soil studies, post- Autumn Equinox begins the wane from the Solstice peak of Soil Vitality, and the smallest amount of life vitality is released within the Earth’s soil. The soil’s life vitality change occurs within 24 hours of the Solstice/ Equinox.

During the time between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice, the Earth’s soil life vitality is at it’s lowest. The amount of depletion corresponds to the health of the soil, how much health and life force was at it’s baseline; a healthy soil holds a higher life vitality, and may be minimally effected by the energy wane. The most magical window lies within the period of soil depletion at Equinox, for here, the Earth rests at it’s lowest life vitality level, creating a perfect soil environment for beginning the growth of a new soil life cycle.

In correlation, human neurochemistry studies note the loss of sunlight increases our Melatonin – the sleep hormone. We relax, we rest more, as does the Earth’s soil vitality. It is during this rest period of Mother Earth and all her creatures that our own new spiritual cycle of growth and development is taking form, and a deep, magical germination and transformation occurs.

Here comes the optimum greening opportunity! During this last burst of Solar exposure and Earth life vitality lies the window to create the fruits of our own individual and collective spiritual, magical cycle!

Spellwork, Mantras and Spiritual intention done just prior to the quiet Permaculture window, between Mabon and Autumn Equinox, germinates during the Equinox/Solstice period, and begins it’s growth at Winter Solstice. Inside this magical window, plant your inner and collective spiritual garden with care and mindfulness to the natural cycles of Mother Earth and Father Sun.

Blessed be the garden of your Soul!💚🌎🌞🕊✨

Power. It’s Personal.

F9FA8C93-EBFF-434E-9644-A294C8473DBF.jpegIt was 1992, and my husband’s new work took us to the East Coast where he oversaw the 5 co-gen power plants in Manhattan, Greenwich, Boston, Baltimore, and Philadelphia to maintain EPA compliance. He was brilliant and handsome, an intellectual Leo with solid earth aspects, which is why I married him. We had long, long conversations about power. Co-gen power. Nuclear power. Solar power….and Magic.  I was a young mother and licensed professional living in Greenwich Connecticut at the time, and staying home raising a family.  We lived in an old stone house, a former tavern on the Mianus River, and had one child in kindergarten and another in the oven. There were old spirits in the house and along the forest banks of the river who presented themselves from time to time, and particularly at full moon.  They made their way from their boats on the river and into my kitchen in the wee hours of the morning. It was not unusual for me to lay in bed with the bright moonlight shining through my window and hear the kitchen door squeak open to footsteps creaking along the old wooden floors and into the kitchen. They were typically followed by the rattle of pots and pans.  If they became too ruckus and I felt my husband stirring, then I was forced out of bed and to my broom and sage to sweep them out through the front door and back to the forest river. After a while, one of them was most helpful in assisting me with my spell work. I got to know them, and they got to know me. And my husband and I continued with our conversations about power. We sat by the hearth, snuggled into the overstuffed floral chintz fireside chairs, with our toes rubbing up against each other on a shared matching ottoman. The EPA was paying close attention to the nuclear power plants in Chernobyl at the time.

”Imagine being able to harness that potential inside yourself.” He said.

“You mean, like bringing earth and sun energy into the solar chakra?”

”I’m not sure what you mean. Explain.”he challenged me.

”Use your imagination for a moment. In your mind’s eye, bring the earth energy, the co-gen energy  stored in the gas and coal created from the very center of the earth’s fire and ore, up through your feet and into your belly, and fill your solar chakra with it. Then bring the solar energy from the universe through the top of your head and down into the solar chakra and fill it with solar energy. Now, spin it. Spin it out through your entire body right into the cellular level to your DNA helix. Spin and weave the combined earth and solar energy through every level of the helix and into each protein component, illuminating each piece of genetic information. It would be a journey of self discovery.”

”I see what you’re saying.  That’s a  personal power journey, both spiritual and ancestral. That’s damned primal.”

The kitchen door squeaked open just then, and the oak floorboards creaked.

04/04/19. Dark Lilith Moon In Aries conjunct Sun. Releasing Unconscious Baggage✨

04/04/19 Dark Lilith Moon conjunct Sun in the 1st House

Today’s Dark Moon is 3° into the first house, Aries, ruled by Mars, and conjunct to the Sun at 14°. The first house addresses the early aspects of our life and offers opportunity for spiritual snd emotional re-birth.This is a powerful and aggressive Lilith moon in Aries, a perfect celestial moment for identifying, cleansing, clearing and releasing our unconscious emotions of fear, irrational anger, guilt and shame that haunt us, create self sabotage and generally block our paths keeping us from our true self and true purpose. It’s the unconscious baggage we carry, put upon us by others early in our life, perhaps in utero, certainly in early childhood, reaching back into past lives.
As the mind has a difficult time releasing emotions, the body releases them with ease and grace.
Perform a Lilith Moon meditation by setting your intention to release your . Unconscious emotional baggage. Implement the Zazen technique of emptying your mind completely. Do this in Child Pose. Hold, stretch, repeat until you feel a sense of calm and freedom throughout your body. Trust your Self. Journal the experience directly afterwards. You have much to reflect on.
Namaste’
