A blessed Imbolc, everyone!

What’s on his altar?

-Cauldron (with cloves inside, for empowerment and protection - I burn a candle underneath every so often so that the cauldron acts like a potpouri warmer)
-Four candles (two votives, one white candle for the previous year, and a silver candle for the new)
-Brigid’s Cross
-Large empowerment quartz crystal
-Onyx for Protection
-Citrine for inspiration
-Dragon Luck Guardian with Cleansing Agate
-God/dess statues
-Cinnamon (for protection and spring)
-Rose Quartz
-Amethyst
-Dragon Guardian offering drawers with Quartz sphere and selenite rods
-Peace sigil
-Moonstone
-Wand
-Anti-fear/Anxiety bottle
-Whiskey offering jar
-Salt Jar
-Tree of Life Pentacle
-Hidden by a candle is a charm in front of the Goddess statue gifted to me by @moonharborwitch, which I am charging for luck, inspiration, and joy.

Tonight, I will be taking a cleansing bath as part of my personal Imbolc rite, and I have a coven rite tomorrow!

Blessed Be! )O(

New altar setup! I’m so delighted to finally have a bundle of lavender, and I wanted to show off my Celtic harp instead of keeping it hidden on the ground; ta-daa! ~ I really like this color scheme / arrangement, especially since this is the first time I’ve changed it in awhile.

Pagan: an umbrella term for many religions, most of which share…..

  •  respect toward nature and celebrations based on seasons/solstices/etc.
  • Animism, the belief that non human things carry spiritual essence 
  • Polytheism, the belief in more than one god, usually within a pantheon corresponding to the culture, the exception being an eclectic pagan, who forms their own beliefs by taking bits and pieces from various religions. 
Freaked

So I have a little Wicca folder on my iPhone and one of the apps I have is simply called “moon” and all it does is tell me what phase the moon is in and how many days until the next phase. I’ve had it for a couple weeks and it’s NEVER done anything else.

Well here I am, minding my own business, looking at all the witchy posts on tumblr when I get a notification from the moon app. This is what it says:

“I am not thinking about what I’m doing.”

What the shit?? I open the app to figure out what that means but I can’t find anything, and now that notification has just disappeared.

WAT?!

Ok then…

THE OAK

   This most sacred and mysterious of our native trees is thought of as the king of the forest. It is connected to the summer solstice and the sun. It exudes great love and warmth of a fatherly disposition.
    It offers us strength, protection and courage simply by being in its presence for a while. It is also seen as a doorway or portal tree. By meditating near one you can find yourself taken to other realms. Your life battles are often made clearer and easier by its magic as a consequence. It is a great tree to go to when you need to calm down. It forces you to slow down to its speed and helps you to put tensions into perspective. Then its soothing caring side almost puts an arm around you and reassures you that all is well.
    The ancient druids met in sacred groves of oaks. Legends and myths abound with famous oaks: King Arthur’s story includes Merlin’s oak at Carmarthen, Robin Hood’s tale includes the Major oak at Sherwood Forest and Herne the Hunter at Windsor park who has less than three possible contenders.
