Tonight is the Strawberry or Rose Moon (and a “super moon” to boot) so there were roses on the altar and strawberries to sweeten our mouths…and sliced into the lovely Italian Rosé we drank. We gathered, we three witchy women, to celebrate our coming together as supportive, powerful, sensitive, artistic women.
We nibbled on olives, almonds, and apricots as beeswax tapers illuminated the Lady overseeing all. We discussed intentions and trust, wholeness, and what it means to be a circle of safety and of risk. Tiny chocolate cupcakes and strawberries soothed our souls and ideas flowed fast and thick.
I lit the charcoal in the iron cauldron and added Nu Essence moon incense, the heady scent filled the air as we shook the rattle, calling the attention of the spirits and gods. The moon was invoked through water, oil, salt, and fresh cut herb of green (rosemary, from the doorway) and I smudged and asperged us and the lovely altar. Our talk turned to the Dark Moon and the future. I pulled a card for each and for the group. Three spears (fire, south, summer) and Sovereignty (Justice), so appropriate.
With plans in place and love as rich in the air as the incense, they departed. Now I am preparing a late dinner, candles still burning, and the clean smell of rain washing through the house after a late and brief fall. My house feels like home for the first time in years…the beauty and power of beloved women and wild spirits have begun to permeate the walls and I revel in it.
And…the bees are abed in their hive in the back yard! They are settling in and exploring their new home. I couldn’t be happier. Many blessings and gifts of abundance to you all.
