It seems like I've been chasing autumn this year. So many things and people and moments rushing in between me, and It. Yesterday, I was taking a moment to look at this Gorgeous World through instagram, and saw someone had mentioned snow . Snow!?! What!?! Naturally, outside I went. An' there it was. The soft. The hush. The Still. And then-- There are countless bits of Magick in this world, and I'm so, so grateful that I get to wander through and be enchanted by this one.
We live in a high-mountain desert clime. So maybe that contributes to my penchant? need? obsession?? for collecting as many bottles, jars, and jugs that I possibly can. A Water-For-Every-Occasion! While we're thoroughly land-locked, we do, thankfully, have access to a variety of mountain rivers and lakes, freshwater springs, and plenty of gorgeous tumbling streams. And once in a while, it will actually rain during a needed moon phase, and I do my best to collect what I can. There are, of course, a thousand ways to cleanse things-- visualizing and blowing your own breath over something, using a Sparklifying potion on or over it... smudging... but sometimes it feels like a sort of baptism is the only thing that will do. So if there's rain or snow, I put out my favorite collecting bowl... and let the moon do Her magick. ♥
