Dates: February 8th to February 15th
Natural Element: Earth
Affirmation: I connect to the Earth and am grounded.
Altar Building: Find an Altar Stone
Home Release: Fix or get rid of broken things
At this time of year, there may be little soil that you can actually see. The ground may be covered with snow still. But perhaps there is a potted plant or a place where an animal has dug a hole. Use the intention to ground yourself to the whole of the Earth. Breathe deeply and let your body relax into the ground below you as you exhale.
This week, seek out an altar stone for your table that will represent a small, sacred and personal area where you can work your magic – burn candles, mix herbs, honour items and the like. It should be flat, fireproof, and easy to clean. If you can find one in nature this is great – but garden centres carry very nice stones. Or you can make a stone using a mold and concrete. Place it in the centre of your table.
How many times have you said “Oh, I can fix that with a bit of glue and paint.” And then you keep the thing in a closet but never get to it. Really, you can probably live without it. Get rid of broken or rickety things this week. If you really, really think you must fix an item then do it or place a date on your calendar when you will get it done.
