At the Catholic Church I used to attend, they would tend the flame of large white candle by the tabernacle (where they stored the bread and wine for the Eucharist). The candle was only allowed to be blown out on Good Friday and Holy Saturday to symbolize that Jesus is not here.
I’m thinking of doing something similar—I’d turn my dragon nightlight on whenever I’m meditating or during a ritual/spell work to symbolize the presence of the Sun God/Solar Dragon and keep the light off from Samhain to Yule.
Thank you so much, Amethyst! So far so good, and we’re halfway through haha- happy Hump Day!
Goodness you are so beautiful, Iris- and that color is stunning!
Wishing you all the best with your new business, so exciting! Enjoy your days off- no better way to treat yourself than with some fun new witchy books, they look awesome!
Ohhhhh Silvery purple sounds like a magickal hair color- not to be an enabler or anything (I am ) but go for it, Sarall!
I love your idea about keeping the flame of the dragon lit- the glow while meditating would be so reassuring and protective
A good way to treat yourself with tax return refunds!
Permission has been granted and the door is open- go for it, @marsha! Starting with a small streak is a good test to see how you like it. And with hair, you can always dye it again or cut off the streak if you find it’s not for you
I have had a very different week, I’m still finding my flow & had a couple of other things to focus on the last couple of days. Today I only have 3 things to do so I should be able to go through the forum to get caught up
It went back to cold weather here. We had about a week & a half of close to 60 degrees. Well, this week has been the 20s & 30s. That didn’t stop me from going out to my 1st garden yesterday & cleaning out rocks , acorns leaves , pulled weeds & dead grass from the flowers that are coming up. All kinds of new growth popping out!
I also opened my Rose of Jericho plants to remind me of rebirth & the earth coming to life for Spring & associating that with getting my life back on my terms.
Oh that’s a great sign! I’m so happy for you that it’s going well.
Thank you, it’s not a big thing this time. 1-hour surgery then I go home, not even put to sleep, something called conscious sedation. My friend, I see every Friday is going to get me there & home. Then Johnny will be home after work. If it’s early, then my oldest son is taking my daughter & her best friend to school that day. So you may not see me in the forum until much later in the day or very early in the day. 1 of the 2
@Siofra_Strega Thank you for the wonderful rune post, Siofra! Glad to hear you’re finding your flow, but I’m sorry about the dip in the weather over there We woke up to snow on the ground here this morning, so I feel you. I’m all done with winter- go away snow and cold weather!
Thank you @TheTravelWitch_Bry, sorry it was a day late. Ironically enough today was super windy, we had some rain, but it was in the mid-50s. This time of year is sweatshirt weather So hopefully we start the new month on the upswing of the weather.
I learning to go with the ebbs & flows as they come & go. It’s a lot easier to get through my days without feeling so tense all the time.
@Amethyst, I don’t have to be there until 1:30 PM, so I will be here in the morning before we leave. I can’t promise anything later in the day… I may be asleep…
Thank you, I think the hardest part of it being at 1:30 PM is that I haven’t been able to eat or drink since midnight last night. NO COFFEE !!! & add in a couple of teenagers… it’s been a morning.
@Amethyst, as soon as I can get word to the coven, I will let you know how I’m doing & how it went. Keep in mind, that I may sleep for a while after I get home, so don’t worry if it isn’t until tomorrow morning.
