March 20, 2013

moved from Oaken Scrolls

Did my Equinox ritual this afternoon.

  • cornmeal to the Ancestors
  • almond for the Nature Kin
  • chocolate chips for the Gods
  • cinnamon hunks for Hermes as Gatekeeper
  • trail mix for the Deities of Occasion (Zeus, Demeter and Persephone)

  • How were my offerings received?  6 of Swords/Review – need to reflect upon things objectively aka they were ok but need more thought put into them?
    • Clarifier:  9 of Wands/Willpower- will push me harder because I can do better?
  • How shall the Kindred respond?  7 of Cups/Delusions:  by driving me to become more practical and less dreamy-eyed
  • What more would the Kindreds have me learn/do?  8 of Pentacles/Work:  work harder

The ritual when fine but it had no oomph, no energy.  The omens would seem to say that I didn’t put enough work or effort into it.  Which is a bit upsetting as I did try.  I felt good about things going in.  I’m really beginning to dislike High Day rituals.

I did have a problem with the cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol not staying light during the whole ceremony which was distracting and disappointing.  Guess I will stick to charcoal disks.  It also means I owe Hermes something better for being Gatekeeper.

I also drew a card afterwards to see what I should do with the trail mix and other food items.  10 of Cups/Family:  share your celebrations with your loved ones so it is sitting out on the table.

    You can put a ring of candles around an incense burner with a lit charcoal disk inside. Persevere, Melia!
