Happy 2018! This year will be better than the last!
I’m gearing up for Early Spring and starting to make my plans for a 3-day celebration. We’ll be doing a thorough cleaning, cleansing and blessing of the house; making our jar candles for the coming year; and, as I always do: cook up a storm! In the next couple weeks I’ll be posting my Early Spring ritual and the types of things I do during this time period as I approach 2 February.
Hmmmmmm. It didn’t occur to me until just now that our Early Spring occurs on Groundhog Day. I’m going to have to dig into that little more. I really hadn’t made the correlation.
This reclusive HearthKeeper has kinda like dipping her toes back in the Pagan Pool and I’d like to give back a bit. Are you ready for some fun?
I’d like to show some Hospitality, but I’d also like to build my follower base a bit, because I am pretty passionate about what I do (including being a HearthKeeper, my ritual life, and, of course…..food!). For me, Early Spring is the promise of new beginnings. Apart from Last Harvest and Longest Night, Early Spring is my most favorite holyday observance.
I honestly would like to share some of it with you. If you are one of my followers, comment below and on all my posts until 15 January so I know you’re still alive, kicking, and interested in the information I have to offer here. Share this on Facebook, your own blog …All The Things!
Here’s the deal: On 16 January I’m going to choose one of my followers (let’s make it competitive…..who do I see the most activity from?) and I’ll post it on that day (so you’ll have to keep watching!) and we’ll figure things out from there and I’ll mail the following:
1 sage bundle (from my garden, already dried)
1 packet of my house blessing incense)
4 of my favorite crystals
A pretty copy of my HearthKeeper House Blessing (don’t ask me how I’ll accomplish this yet; I’m not that organized)
Hooray! Let’s do this! Share! Post! Interact!
Blessings from the Hearth.
