POSTED UNDER Earth, Solstice, Spring, AND MORE

Attune with Earth

Color of the day:  Topaz
Incense of the day:  Honeysuckle
 

Now that the solstice has passed and winter has officially arrived, the daylight hours will very gradually increase, with the promise of spring to someday arrive (however far away). But first we must pass through winter! In many Western magical traditions, winter is tied to the north and the element of earth, which rules over groundedness, stability, the physical body, and silence. To get the most out of the coming months, attune to the element of earth.

If you can, sit on the earth outside, perhaps under a tree. If you must remain indoors, you may do this with a pot of earth or a bowl of salt. Place your hands in the soil or salt and contemplate the stillness of the season. Root your own energy here, feeling the connection in your bones. Say:

Powers of the earth, lend me your
gifts of strength, stability, and the
power to remain silent. Be with
me this day. So mote it be.
