Spring & The Magick of Rituals
Since I was young, the arrival of Spring has been a magickal time.
On that first day of Spring, I would join my mother in the garden.
I would be given a handful of seeds, a scoop and watering can.
Weather never mattering.
Chubby fingers digging in the soil.
"We give back to the Earth because She gives to us, We say thank you".
My Aunt would explain.
I don't think I really understood then.
What I did understand was
How the earth felt between my fingers.
What I knew was how I loved the smell of damp earth.
What I knew was this was something Magickal.
Magick is about rituals.
Rituals made with love, joy.
Rituals created with family, friends.
These rituals have their own special energy.
True magick comes Not from what direction one calls.
True magick comes Not from the placement of a chalice or Athame.
Nor does it come from how one casts a circle.
It is in the rituals of everyday living that True Magick lives,
For Magick comes from the heart.
May you honor the Spring with a magick all your own.
