Mother Nature’s Waters

snowwolfCollecting & Using Water For Rituals

Practitioners of pagan paths have long been associated with and connected to nature and all its elements. Using natures energy to empower workings and promote their connection to spirit, can be found on every continent throughout history.

When the world relied heavily on the swing of Nature’s spirit, rain and snow were honored components of every day life. Crops needed the right amount of rain to flourish. Winter needed the right amount of snow to maintain water supply. That hasn’t changed over the ages. But as societies became more urban, the focus on Nature’s energy and our connection to it has faded.

Today people notice the extremes of weather and pay little attention to its every day impacts. Unless you’re a farmer, or have your own garden in your backyard, you may not give the rain a second thought. But if you’re pagan and look for the energy in Nature’s movements through our world, you know it can be both an omen and a blessing. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knave of Cups – Inverted

Knave of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Get your tail moving and fan the wind of change. You’re the only one who can cast away the gloom and doom. If you want sunny skies, than allow your self to be the light that shines for others. Dread and anxiety will only keep you in the dark and things are not as bad as you think they are. So smile, it’s not only good for you; it’s contagious too.

Additional Insight:

Those around you key their emotions for the day, from you. If you’re stressed and filled with anxiety, you will create that environment around you and infect everyone who crosses your path. Don’t be the dreaded virus that everyone wants to stay away from.

Instead, look around you and find the beautiful things that no one else notices. And share their beauty like a beacon of uplifting light. Even the cloudy skies have elements of beauty in the way they move, or the way they shadow your eyes from the blaring sun. Ever drive in the morning due east when the sun rise blinds you from seeing the road? Even the clouds can have their benefits.

But like all things, the world changes and moves on. You can allow the clouds of despair to hold you back, fighting the flow of change to a better day. Or you can trick yourself into a smile and share the hope and joy with those who cross your path.  You may even trick yourself into a good mood.

Those “Good vibrations” (even if you’re only pretending) help you to re-energize, keep you going with hope and feed the creative ideas that swirl round within you. Let them shine today and you’ll be so surprise at how easy things will go for you. It’s a new day of the rest of your life. Take it on with excitement and confidence that you’re moving forward! Be the cure for the blues that everyone wants to have around.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Hermit – Inverted

The Hermit : Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

With the whirlwind of activity going on around you, there’s no way you can stay in the shadows and hide. Your attitude is being noticed, good and bad. Make sure today, it’s much more good than bad. Smile, be friendly and help others resolve their little problems and get things done. Your work will benefit you more than you can realize today.

Additional Insight:

It may not be in your nature to hide. But you have been doing a lot of that lately. The more the Divine Universe takes notice, the more you’ll be put in positions where you must be in the limelight. Why are you fighting so hard to stay hidden? It doesn’t support the dreams you have and the goals you’ve set. So your actions are in conflict with your thinking. And that is creating greater stress, anxiety and frustration that is strongly affecting your health.

Stand up tall and proud. Smile and step into the spot light. Show what you can do and why you deserve the attention and leadership role you’re dreaming about. No one else can do it for you. And it’s not going to come to you wrapped in a nice neat box on a platter.

Leadership takes work, effort and the ability to trust your instincts. Express your confidence, while still remaining humble and respectful of others, their ideas and suggestions. And today you could shine brighter than you could imagine.


Here in the U.S. it’s voting day. I hope everyone eligible to vote gets out there and puts their civic duty into practice!
