Purim Protection Spell Spell Date: Thursday, March 21, 2019 Color of the day: White Incense of the day: Clove
Today is Purim, a Jewish holiday that celebrates the salvation of the Jews from Haman's plot to kill them all. You don't have to be Jewish to observe this holiday as a reprieve from intolerance and genocide. It's a great day for casting protection spells.
You'll need a symbol for any god or goddess of protection, along with a vessel to carry the spell. Money works, and so do hamantaschen or other edibles. Cast a circle, then invoke your favorite protective deity and ask for their help. Focus on your desire to give protection, then put that into the vessel. Give thanks to your protective patron, then release them and your circle.
Distribute the vessel to people who need protection or other resources. Ideally they should be folks you know personally, but if you don't know anyone suitable, you may give to a charity instead
An Ostara Egg Spell Spell Date: Wednesday, March 20th, 2019 Color of the day: White Incense of the day: Lilac Ostara is the Pagan sabbat that celebrates the spring equinox. It was named for the Teutonic goddess Eostra, which eventually led to the Christian holiday of Easter. The main themes of Ostara are rebirth and fertility. Symbols for Ostara include rabbits, flowers, and eggs. Eggs, a symbol of fertility, are sacred to both Pagans and Christians. They've been decorated at springtime since the days of ancient Egypt and Persia. In ancient Egypt and today in the Eastern Orthodox Church, eggs are usually dyed red. Red is the color of the life force, the Sun, and Christ's blood. The egg is rich with symbolism. The shell can represent the Earth or Christ's tomb. The white is associated with the Heavens, and the yolk with the sun. To create a new beginning, perform this spell. Turn your altar toward the east and place three hard-boiled eggs dyed red upon it. Think of something you wish to begin, then gently press two of the eggs together until the shells crack. This symbolizes a break with the past and a fresh start. Take the third egg oustide and gently roll it in the grass to honor the increasing power of the Sun. End your ritual by eating a pastry garnished with almonds to represent fertility.
