Spring is here!

Wednesday, March 29, 2006
Its spring! Usually, here in southern California spring is nice and warm. I can't believe the amount of rain we've been getting lately... it will be warm and sunny, then really rainy for a few days. Today its bright, clear and the sunshine is out!

I feel as though the weather is a metaphor for the coven. Two of our members are currently on sabbatical until June. We miss them and though we've closed ourselves off from recieving their energy until they return, there is definitely something missing when we meet. We have had some rainy days without them... and I just hope that they find what they need- and I really hope that its back with us. I *know* it will be sunny again!

April is almost upon us, and with that, its almost time for Beltane! Beltane is the first of our two friends and family rituals. We host two a year- a small step below a "public" ritual... its more like an open ritual. I don't know if we want to try a maypole again. I did a shoddy job of teaching the dance last year- we were very rushed from not starting on time because of location logistics.

This year, we should be able to do more, with more people. Yule went rather well, methinks, and the fact that everyone was involved was great! Its time to brainstorm, and we'll probably do a little bit of that this weekend.

Just for fun and springs sake, here are a couple pictures from last years Beltane...

Ostara Recap

Willow led an amazing Ostara ritual. I had a great time and to see how the Coven Plant that we planted last Ostara has grown was so awsome!
