Granted, these last three posts aren’t in chronological order… But at least their posted, right?
This May moon was spent with many plant saplings, and other things that need to ‘grow.’ And not just the garden.
I began with making a new set of candlesticks – because having antler on the altar was too constrictive, non-constructive, and interfered with the rest of the working space. So, I swapped the mule-deer antler for two white-tail hand made candlestick holders:
I re-blessed everything I carry on me, and ‘fed,’ my skin bottle and spirit pouch. My altar really needed the re-arrangement, and re-alignment. I pulled in the old pole I brought home from the family farm to carve into a ‘pillar,’ for my ritual workings (coming soon).
This moon was also spent re-cleansing, re-hallowing, and re-newal of tools, ritual curios, talismans, and myself. It’s spent renewing ‘umph,’ which I badly needed, and didn’t realize how worn out I was until I picked up the drum and even though teary eyed and so stressed I damn near lost my marbles; sang anyway.
The new hearth-bowl works wonderfully.
