A Little Yuletide Crystal Magic

by Krista Mitchell from KristaMitchell.com

 We're moving into a potent phase of intention setting and manifestation magic from the 25th to the 6th (the original 12 days of Yuletide or Christmas), when our thoughts and hopes will look to a fresh start at the new year.

YULETIDE BLESSINGS & SEASON’S GREETINGS!

We’ve made it through the darkest time, and longest night, of the year. 
Slowly but surely the sun will begin to wax, and while they still feel far away, the warm days will come again.

We’re moving into a potent phase of intention setting and manifestation magic from the 25th to the 6th (the original 12 days of Yuletide or Christmas), when our thoughts and hopes will look to a fresh start at the new year.

According to the ancient Celtic and Druidic calendars, the month of Birch begins today. The birch tree symbolizes new beginnings, rebirth, and resurrection. In the runic language of the old Norse, it symbolizes fertilityhealingprosperity, and the feminine mysteries. 
 

A LITTLE YULETIDE CRYSTAL MAGIC

To consciously welcome in the magic, healing, and blessings this time brings:

  1. Place a candle in your window at twilight, the magical “between and betwixt time” revered by the Druids. (An LED candle is fine, safety first!)
  2. Using your saliva (or a sacred oil) and your index finger, draw the runic Berkana symbol (meaning “birch”, pictured above) on your window.
  3. Hold a piece of quartz and whisper your desires for healing, renewal, fertility or prosperity into the quartz.
  4. Leave the quartz beside your candle throughout the night, symbolizing the light of your dreams blazing through the darkness.
  5. Keep the quartz with you, place it on your altar, or bury it in your garden after the Spring thaw.

MAY MAGIC, HEALING, LOVE AND HOPE BLESS YOU AND YOURS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

WARMEST WISHES,
KRISTA

A Summer Solstice Sunrise Observance Ritual

Summer Solstice Sunrise from the Water Summer Solstice Sunrise Progression from the Water at Yellow Creek State Park on the Summer Solstice 2017

My alarm goes off at 4:00am.  I’m conveniently camping right along the lake shore, after having spent the evening watching the sunset on the eve of the summer solstice with members of our grove. My kayak is ready to launch, and I roll out of my sleeping bag and slip it quietly into the still, dark water. The starry heavens are brilliant in their glory, the moon a crescent low in the sky. But just as I begin to paddle, the first light on the horizon is present. The mists rise up from the lake water–the lake is warm like bath water even though the air itself is much cooler on this summer solstice morning. I paddle through the mist, finding a good spot from which to watch the sun rise. The lake…

We know this is a bit early for our usual full moon post, but we wanted to be sure you had time to gather any supplies you may need for this Full Moon Ritual.

Magic 2

secretsoftheserpent

I have had some messages telling me that magic can’t be as simple as I am making it. Well to all the people who have sent me these messages, you are simply wrong. The big secret of magic is that it is much simpler than most people could ever believe possible. This automatically protects it’s mysteries from the foolish who chase after complex ‘occult’ theories’ or who dismiss it, calling it ‘mere imagination’. Magic is mere imagination, it is the science of imagination.
