Tuesday marked the Spring Equinox, the time of year where spring is in full swing and day and night is of equal length. It was a bloody lovely day too and i managed to go for a walk.
The kids still had their chocolate eggs, my eldest got a self stir mug and my youngest lego. I do not like paying out loads of money for chocolate eggs.
Of course we had a fire in the evening and our little coven had a renewal, new life ritual to do. Now we do not the usual form of ritual per say, it is very much instant practical magick that is child friendly and really isn’t as a serious atmosphere that you would find in most. I say coven in the loosest of terms too. The favourite saying throughout the night was pointing out which of our behaviours would of been “frowned at” in your usual formal magickal setting. But heck who cares, this is how we do things, it is how we have always done things and it is how we always will do things, there is NO rule book.
When the kids were younger we used to blow eggs, decorate them, hang them around the place, have egg hunts and i do miss those days, like everything things evolve to fit the situation you are in, so these day we mainly stick to going for walks, having a fire and the odd spell here and there.
We decorated blown eggs
We then wrote on a piece of paper what it was we wanted to grow in our personal lives, e.g. confidence, the paper then got put inside the egg. We used rolling papers
Collected a daffodil each – new growth and energies from the earth.
Placed the following herbs into a little cauldron
Followed by our daffodils and eggs to concentrate the energies of our intent and properties of the herbs, daffodils and egg
We set up and started the fire
After getting our eggs out of the cauldron and daffodils we called upon our ancestors, gods and goddesses, stated our intent & asked for protection. Put daffodil on fire, asked for our wishes placed inside the egg grow in our lives. Placed eggs onto fire. Closed ritual.
