Spring Equinox 2018

At 12:15PM EST (now!!), it’s officially the Spring Equinox. Time for merry making! **FB Live at 3:30PM EST**

Energetically it means that we are at that tipping point between our shadow world, our divine feminine, our magnetic receptivity… and our light-world, conscious action, and conscious awakening.

Take time today to visualize yourself taking off your white mantel of hibernation, as you step out to create a brand new season with wonderful possibilities. As we’re still working with New Moon energy (in Taurus today, an Earth sign), consciously bring to mind again those seeds-thoughts that you want to grow this season. What do you wish to create? What do you wish to leave behind? What are you willing to put aside until later, when it’s ready to hatch without hurry or force?

If you haven’t done so yet, create a sacred fire and burn away old journal entries, old spells, old representations of what no longer serves you and offer it to the Divine. Put the ashes in the compost so they can serve to grow what’s next.

 

One of my favourite rituals to symbolize a renewal and stepping out in a new skin — is a hot shower with exfoliating scrub. Mix about 1/2 cup of coconut oil with 1/4 cup rough himalayan or sea salt (or black lava salt if you can find it). Add about 10 drops of your favourite essential oil. Scrub your skin at the end of your shower, and simply rinse away (don’t use soap after the salt scrub). Your skin will be soft and glowing!

My oils to take the winter away: (2-3 drops each in the coconut oil)

Warming mix: cinnamon, ginger, ylang-ylang, wild orange

Refreshing mix: eucalyptus, rosemary, lavender, frankincense

Crystals: balance with black tourmaline and selenite

Goddesses: Ostara / Esther; and Persephone coming back to the surface after spending long months in Hades…
