Like a Lion..."
March is known as the end of winter and the start of
spring. The month opens with bitter winds and snowstorms
and then morphs into warm afternoons and cool evening
rain. March also brings the Spring Equinox, also known
as Ostara. This holiday is what the Christians based
their Easter on. Often very close on the calendar, most
of Easter's themes originate from Ostara. While we all
celebrate the return of the Sun, Christians also celebrate
the return of the Son. Bunnies, baskets, and colorful
eggs were all taken from pagan images of a world in

is a great time to plan for your garden! Gardening supplies
are being displayed in almost every store and packaged
seeds, both veggies and flowers, are all on sale. Check
out the space that you have for your garden, whether
outside or inside. Then go and make your purchases.
But beware! March is notorious for late snow showers.
So be sure to wait until after the Equinox before planting.
Just can't wait? Start an indoor herb garden. Get the
kids involved with this one. Let them help pick out
the flowers for your garden. Or get little hands their
own planting kits, such as strawberry or tomato kits.
What kid won't love to munch on fruits and veggies they
grew themselves! And don't forget to spring clean the
yard as well as inside the house. Head outside on a
warm afternoon and prep your garden space. Bag and toss
leftover leaves, etc. Once that stuff is done, you'll
be all set to get your hands dirty after the threat
of that last frost has passed!
Eve usually marks our desire to toss old habits as we forge
into a New Year with a clean slate. But did you know that
Springtime is actually much better time for such changes.
Longer days and warmer nights, bring us out of hibernation,
both mind and body, and lend us new energy! Start by opening
all your windows and doors as you spring-clean. This will
cleanse your home of both physical dirt and any metaphysical
stagnate energies. Then make a list of all the changes you'd
like to make in your life. Be sure to take special care cleaning
any areas in your home that are connected with the goals on
your list - such as cleaning your desk if your goal is to
write your memoir's. Then rank your list in order of importance.
on each item on your list, one at a time. What would your
life be like if you had already achieved your goal? What would
life be like if you could never achieve it? Get as specific
as you can. Next find seeds that correspond with your goals
- sage for protection, lavender for luck, and gardenia for
health. Plant the seeds in a small cup with some soil. Cover
the cup loosely with plastic wrap, place it in a sunny window,
and keep the soil moist by spraying water under the plastic
wrap each day. As your seedlings grow, so will change grow
in your life!
any eggs this year? If you know any kids, odds are you'll
be eating hard-boiled eggs until July 4th! Well don't despair.
There are many unique ways to do the "egg-thing"
without being overwhelmed with egg salad. The egg is a symbol
of rebirth and growth. It has also been used in traditional
spellwork for healing, fertility and love. For a quick
and easy spell, take a raw egg and dye it an appropriate
color - red for love, green for prosperity, etc. Then put
small holes on either end of the egg with a needle and blow
out the insides. Rinse with a bit of water and then insert
small crystals and herbs that will enhance your spell. For
example, a rose quartz and some rose petals are good for a
love spell. Or a piece of malachite and some dried lavender
to encourage healing. Cover the holes by gently gluing colored
paper over them. Another fun spell involves dying four eggs
the colors of the elements. Bury them in the Four Corners
of your property to protect your household. You can also dye
eggs different colors or decorate them with dollar signs,
hearts, etc., and hang them from trees and scrubs around your
home to bring prosperity and love, etc. Oh, and don't forget
that eggshells are also a great add to for potting soil and
even coffee grounds!.
