Welcome springtime and rebirth!
Our apprentices gathered in Circle to welcome the second “turn of the wheel.” We talked about taking risks and what it means to find balance at the Vernal Equinox. We performed rituals to inspire joyful and strong rebirth in ourselves and our world. Blessed Be!
The Burden Basket
May all of your Ostara seeds sprout and may you be blessed with bounty!
We began our Wheel of the Year Journey with Imbolc on Saturday. . .
In preparation, I found these tender buds along the NorCal Coast one day on an excursion with my husband and our dogs.
Here are the dogs. . . Bella and Buddy-
Here is the amazing NorCal Coast. . . just past Jenner, CA
Hard to think it is only the early days of spring!
Here is me at the Imbolc Altar-
A lovely shot of the Altar-
And here are some of the buds outside of my home, the Camellias are still tight little buds-
And here is me looking very priestess-y
One of our crafts for the day was to make vision boards. . .
We also made Brigid’s Crosses, it was a sacred and precious day for the Apprentices.
For fun, I decided to add my YouTube video of the Imbolc Altar. I will present one for each Sabbat all year long. Please check out the link below xo
Blessings and Peace, Honor and Love to you!

Answer Her Call and join the Apprenticeship as we journey around the Wheel of the Year together!
