Today I am exhaustedRead Now
The bone weary kind of exhaustion that calls for slow movement, the setting aside of to do lists, long minutes spent staring at the motion of leaves in the breeze and soaking up the sun spots on the rug with the ever wise cats.
It is a day where my solar driven self is being forced to take a back seat.
Yesterday I taught, I co-led a ritual, I went to a Witches market, and then attended a Wedding.
Yesterday was a day of action and interaction.
Today is most definitely not.
Part of my own Witchcraft practice is learning to flow and not force. It is a work in progress. (I am a work in progress).
The energy of this almost Solstice sun ignites my already directed self to bite off even more than I can chew. And to do so with exuberance and conviction.
The flip side of this is that rest and renewal must also occur.
I have a lot of fire in my Astrological chart and sometimes that fire needs to be banked.
Not extinguished, just turned into a slow smolder instead of a raging flame.
For me this can be found in the elements of water and earth.
A bath or shower with intention, a trip to a meandering river or creek, a lake or the ocean all offer a quieting effect on my inner fire.
Alternately, laying myself down on the earth, watching the natural world around me from a place of connection to the ground or with my back to a tree, can slow my runaway flame.
How do the elements live in you?
The elements are very much at the heart of my own practice.
Where do they reside in yours?
Take 5 minutes and reflect on which elements you feel most led by in your life. Are you most connected to water and find emotions always close to the surface. Does air keep you connected to your thoughts more than your body? Are you earthy and grounded or does earth keep you stuck in patterns that are familiar even if uncomfortable?
Then take another 5 minutes and reflect on what elements help balance and soothe you. What practices can you use to access these energies?
Finally, choose one balancing/soothing activity and DO IT!
Have you registered for Coven Crafting yet?
Maybe you have already begun to practice your magic in a group setting. Maybe you are solitary and a little Coven curious.
Either way, Coven Crafting has some magic just for you!
In this two hour class you will begin the visioning of the Circle you want to be a part of.
We will explore the puzzle pieces of crafting your Coven, looking at everything from meeting frequency to dues.
We will also identify some key components to maintaining the health of your group. Much like any relationship, Covens need some tending and I’m going to give you the tools to do this.
By the end of our 2 hours together you will have a clearer picture of not only what kind of group you want to create, but also how to make it happen and keep it going for the long haul.
Coven Crafting is happening June 25th from 9-11am PT.
The replay and handouts will be available to all participants whether they attend the live class or not.
See you there!
