Happy Magickal, Magnificent, Mystical, Merry, Manifesting, Marvelous March Monday! Did you have a glorious week delicious lovely with the wonderful Spring Equinox energy, Full Moon and the knowing that the light is getting longer and the flowers are pushing up through the cold earth! Quite a few of you have messaged asking when the Spring Equinox Reading Special lasts until. My darling it ends tonight, thus, if you feel called now is the time!
I have to say this has been a glorious week over here as I harnessed the energy of the Spring Equinox by taking time for ritual (I did a few including the Blessing Bowl one) which was amazing and went and sat by the ocean under the full moon. Talk about the sensation of having a moon bath! My awesome new neighbour brought me a beautiful posy of Spring flowers and a super cool art deco mirror over as Spring Equinox gifts – I was uber touched. The next day I did a glorious Spring Cleaning of the house, my office, my garden and my aura. Wowzer, wowzer, wowzer the sensation was like taking off the heavy fur coat of winter and putting on something lighter, sassier and more playful! I mentioned Spring Cleaning to a friend the other day and I watched her shoulders shoot up to her ears with the image, however, when I pointed out that this doesn’t necessarily mean scrubbing the toilet but more a cleansing of the energy in her home and her body with ease and grace, she felt more inclined to give it a try. In fact she phoned a couple of days later to let me know she had smudged, salt scrubbed, tidied one room up and washed one window and felt amazing! Gotta love a little cleansing energy, it just creates a fresh space for something new and more aligned.
On the weekend one of my best friends came for a visit and we had a fabulous time filled with axe tossing with the family (apparently not all families can do this together lol), beach walks, hikes, family dinners, large fires on the beach with random bongo playing french canadians and my concert! As some of you know a few months ago I stretched my comfort zone and joined a female acapella group (trust me this was a huge stretch for me). Every week we would rehearse, sing, laugh and share which was incredible and on Sunday we had our concert (I was very nervous)! The concert had a theme and the theme was “Home” and it was a fundraiser for the James Bay Refugee Association. There were incredible performers who all sang songs pertaining to what Home is, where one finds it, how it feels and all the rest. Our group performed 3 powerful songs pertaining to Home but more the sense of home within Spirit, Community and Relationship. This in turn got me to thinking about Home and what it means to me. To me Home is not necessarily the place I was born, but it’s the place where I feel safe, nurtured, cared for and connected to. For example, I felt very much at home in Yorkshire, and I feel very much at home here by the ocean. My physical space feels safe, serene and joyful – there are no chunks of darkness hiding in the closet or under the bed (thank goodness). I also realised that I am very picky about the people I allow in my Home (both physical space and mental space) which was quite interesting to pick up on as for years I would allow all sorts of energy and people into my physical and mental space (often to my detriment). Now I am far more discerning and if it doesn’t feel like a good fit the bright red door stays shut!!! So what does Home mean to you?
So with thoughts of energetic spring cleaning and home burbling in your being let’s crack on with the reading.
When I asked the cards who wanted to guide this week I was tickled to see The Faery Forest, An Oracle of the Wild Green World were ultra keen. Now if these glorious guides are new to you please let me introduce them (as introductions are always a polite thing). “Let us enter the wild green world together, friend, the faery forests where the great trees speak with us, the moss soft underfoot, the light pure and gentle. The homes of the once Sacred groves of the Celts, the Saxons, and the Vikings…and to the people who were here long before we had names with which to call them to us – the faerie people. May the wild green world and the wondrous beings of this Faery Forest heal us, inspire us and urge us all to become more who we truly are meant to be.”
The crystals that wiggled and jiggled to support are:- Aragonite, Stilbite and Rose Quartz – yummers! Oh yes and a lovely Hyacinth chose to join in as well.
So delicious one, I invite you to take a moment and just settle into your body. Breathe in long slow and deep in through your nose and sigh it out through your mouth. Just Be and Breathe, you have more than enough time to do everything you feel needs to be done. As you let your shoulders drop and nestle along your spine allow the feel of Spring to burble up in your body and the sense of Home to whisper to you. Then when you are ready pick the card or cards that resonate for you.
Did you remember to pick?
Let’s go have a little lookie loo shall we?
THE WILD HUNT
There is, for all of us, a moment when excitement and nerves fuse, when we prepare to journey and do something we have anticipated for a long time. In the faery realm, this sensation is created by adventure known as the Wild Hunt. This is a gathering which takes place not only within the realm of faery, it is one where the faery king and queen lead faery hounds and faery horses on a hunt throughout the countryside, dipping into and out of the faery lands, surfacing in the human worlds from time to time, cleansing toxic energy, allowing natural forces to begin to flow through the cleared energy paths, awakening the wild world to brightest life once again, and leaving a trail of ecstasy and bliss after the frenzied storm of their ride.
The Wild Hunt is fierce, powerful, a little frightening, and thoroughly thrilling – and this faery queen is preparing herself for the joys and challenges of this great springtime event. So too you need to prepare yourself for some chaos – a wild time, when change tears through and upends all the order you have attached yourself to. You may need to pack, travel, find ways to move quickly, stop planning and organising for a moment and just go on an immensely enjoyable ride of your life.
The time coming for you is delirious in its excitement, and you fear this loss of control and order. But truly, it will refresh you, just as it sears the very edges of your nerves! Dress up, show up, and prepare to be amazed! Take a deep breath, find your voice, and begin to cry out at the top of your lungs. You are alive my friend, and will feel so more than ever before when the wild hunt touches your life!
An oath is a sacred bond that we make. It is more than a promise, it is the bond of a soul contract through the spoken word – and thus we must be cautious when we offer our word, and think through what it is we mean when we give it. It is impossible to ever know what another thinks we mean when we give our word, so when this card comes, there is a slight undertone of a warning – that another person may take your word and twist it to mean they have your loyalty forever, regardless of circumstance, behaviour, or treatment. An oath is made between equals, and an oath can be broken by both parties, and by circumstance.
You may now be considering a partnership or a contractual agreement. It is almost impossible to know how to ensure that this is a good thing, because the truth is, within every contract there is much that cannot be comprehended, even when it is read. If this is the case, ask the other party in the contract to explain what is meant by clauses you do not understand – and ask them to offer examples, so you can best understand the paper oath you are taking.
In some cases, it may be a handshake you are sealing an agreement with. Whatever its form, consider the weight that comes with the feeling of making this contract. Consider the future and the karmic load the agreement brings to you, along with its immediate benefits. It is the truth that when considering our word, we must understand as fully as we can what we have agreed to. Be sure to do this now.
You have pure magick flowing through you in the form of visions, dreams, and trance-like moments. You are visually psychic and all the world is full of messages being relayed to you both through the medium of physical sight and through the eyes of spirit. You may even find you are able to enter trance extremely easily. You’re adept at reading patterns within Nature, you can scry without meaning to, and you look into every face knowing the story it is silently sharing. One glance gives you information about the person or place you are with or within, and your skill is an ancient one, revered throughout the ages.
You may find yourself gazing intently at other people’s faces, and picking up information, being able to read expressions, seeing shapes and patterns and fate within the forms tea leaves take at the bottom of the cup, reading signs in clouds, or simply knowing what will happen before you open your physical eyes, because you can see what is to happen next.
Your eyes at this time are immensely important – so on a mundane level, please be sure to have an eye check and look after your vision. Visually, you are very sensitive, so it may be time to change your environment, your appearance, or the appearance of where you spend much of your time so that it better offers you the energy with which you wish to go forward. Trust in your visions. They come from a magickal place, and when you become able to read and understand them, you will be the Dreamer indeed. Your vision is coming to reality – keep going. Your dream will become manifest in your life, and very soon.
Wow, I so love the cards! Have I said that before? The Wild Hunt referring to Spring, an Oath and being the Dreamer! Whoot, Whoot! So gorgeous one wishing you a stupendous week filled with ease, effortlessness, grace and play! Remember to take some of this glorious Spring energy and allow it to surge through you, making you laugh, giggle and do daft things! Here’s to darling daffodils, cute crocuses, and marvelous magnolia! See you next week! Huge hugs and squeezes.
