Hello Avalonians, and a Happy Spring Equinox!
We have been busy here at Hedgewitch House, Moots, Sabbat Ceremonies, Candle Magick Workshop, School of Witchcraft, and Magickal Herbs! So much magick going on I expect that the sky above the house must crackle in the evening!!
It is to be expected as we come into the time of the Spring Equinox, when we start to energise ourselves as the Goddess energises the land. It is a time of new beginnings, to sweep away the old and begin the new! Thats why we Spring clean at this time!
Talking of Spring cleaning, I 'sprung' cleaned our front room where we hold our meetings and ceremonies, and at last have located the altar properly in the North. The room looks bigger, the herb cupboard takes up a wall, while the Avalonia bookcase is now bulging with our books. The smell of herbs, and the atmosphere of calm now pervades the rest of the house.
Wish the calm had spread to Mr. Muggle, he has been fiddling with the shower all day, and I am only grateful that we now have the water back on, telling me the job shouldn't take long, he has been backwards and forwards up and down stairs all morning and most of the afternoon. I was beginning to thank the Goddess that there had been no mishaps, when he spills a bottle of milk over the kitchen floor! I really don't know how he does it! Worryingly he doesn't know how he does it!
Samcat is looking forward to his 18th birthday on 4th April! He is, of course, preserving his energy for the big day by sleeping every day, waking in time for breakfast and tea, and an occasional visit to his litter tray. Despite the weather being magnificent, and the back door open all day, he only takes a short stroll in the garden after breakfast, then retires to the comfort of our big double bed! Oh to to a cat!
Talking of the magnificent weather, hasn't it been wonderful? Giving us a glimpse of what the Summer may be like. The hedgerows are beginning to get a green haze of buds and daffodils are bobbing in the breeze, the dawn chorus is a joy, as the birds call to attract partners. Mr M has planted pansies and primroses in the garden where I can see them and be reminded that the Goddess is bringing us all this beauty, and give Her thanks for Her bounty.
May your hearts be uplifted as the Wheel of the Year turns towards Spring, and may the Goddess bless and keep you at the Greening of the Year!
