For the firs time since Megan (my familiar) crossed over in June of 2008, I am starting to feel the stirrings of magick awakening in my spirit.  It is fitting that I celebrate Ostara today.  New Beginnings indeed.

As the Earth begins to awaken to the calls of Spring and warming of the Sun, my spirit flies on the breeze hat blows gently outside my window and through the trees.

The stirrings could in part be due to the simple and basic fact that thanks to home improvements I had to move my desk into the room where my atar is.  This is the 2nd week I have been in the room working daily.

Being surrounded by the implements of my faith and magick I cleaned off my altar, dusted it off and reset it.  it is as if I am emerging from a Chyrsallis and stretching my wings.

I started in small ways at first last week by simply lighting a stick of incense and a candle every morning.  I quietly added in a little blessing and prayer.  Rebuilding my routine.

For the last two weeks a gentle peace has settled over my spirit.

Today mid-day feeling completely at ease and peaceful, I lit a few small candles a fresh stick of incense and made a simple verbal prayer and blessing to the Goddess in honor of the coming of Spring to the world.

Tonight I believe I will write  simple Solitary Ostara Ritual.

The last several months without Megan have been very difficult for me to even think of doing a ritual without her.  She was always there.

Now I feel at peace.  I am thankful for Lady Raven Moonshadow’s guidance throughout my mourning process and for her wisdom in telling me it was OK to mourn and that when the time was right I would again do ritual in a renewed manner.  She’s so smart. 😉

Once again I grow and learn more thanks to Sacred Mists.
