Blessing for gardeners/gardens
This blessing is great for this time of year when it is too cold to start really gardening. Use it to bless the space for your garden and spend time waking up the soil. Connect to the Earth and spend time planning what you will plant in the upcoming season.
Rain water collected during winter season
Garden beds to be blessed
This blessing is
best performed on the night of a new moon. Begin by sprinkling the cilantro
over yourself, accepting its blessing to gardeners. Then call upon the moon’s
energy as you sprinkle your rain water around the perimeter of your garden
Blessings rain down upon this place,
The nursery to bring up my plants.
Positive energies become the base,
Encourage growth, and hear my chant.
Move to one garden bed - place your hands on the soil with your palms down. Close your eyes and feel the pulse of the Earth. Imagine what you hope to plant here soon and whisper “wake up” to the soil. Do this for each of your garden beds. Finish by saying, “So mote it be” (or “May it be/whatever suits your practice).
