It is time for life. The sun has broken ground with the Spring Equinox on March 20th, 2018, a celebration Wiccans and pagans call Ostara. With the return of the sun, it continues to warm the Earth, and to invite life. As the Earth warms, the seeds within the Earth, the bulbs, and the roots, spring to life and make their way towards the light. The light calls, becons, and draws towards it life, and life responds with a thirst for the sun, a relationship with the sun that is essential for growth.
In traditional Wicca, we symbolically associate the sun with the Sun God or the Fertile God, who now leads the way in an active cycle of creativity, procreation and fertility. These active energies are available to us, they live within us and can be surrendered to and applied within your own endeavours. These are yang, outward directing, masculine energies that we all are a apart of. They instinctually seek to move out into the world, towards the light, and become bigger, brighter and bolder. These energies offer us the chance of renewal and growth within our own lives, should we consciously choose to connect with them.
As Wiccans, we find meaning, association, and correspondences between the Earth's natural rhythms and how we lead our lives. Therefore tending to our plants, in the way we wish our lives to flourish, cleaning the house to make sure stagnant energies are flushed out, and gifting our unused items to make space for our new intentions, are some ways in which we can connect to the rhythms of this practice and the Earth's natural cycles. We are a part of the rhythms of creation, made from the same material of everything we see around us, and bound to the same laws that govern the Earth and the Universe.
By creating conscious actions, intentions or spells, we seek to merge our ideas with the fabric of the Universe and the laws by which it creates matter and life. We don't need to have a specific desire, need, or want. The intention of deepening connection to the spring energies is a potent and directive intention in and of itself and allows the natural flow of your life to be in harmony with the Earth's. Find below a Spring House Blessing Spell that can be applied to your specific intentions this season. Happy Spring from our house to Yours!
By Lady Samantha - Coven TCOTMThis spell is designed to aid you in setting the intentions for your home. It can be performed on a house or a condo. Some improvisation may be needed. Before performing any spell, clean your house and altar to clear any stagnant energies. The idea is to move out energy so we can create room for new ones to take hold. Next, take care in gathering the items needed for the symbolic associations.

Take a few mins in meditation in front of altar. Light some sage to clear the space and move into sacred space. Call the directions, elements and your Deities, and perform divination before starting the spell. Ask the Gods or Goddesses if there is anything specific you should need to know about your intentions for spring and default your will to the Gods that the highest will of the Universe be present. Please note, we did not include the vase as it was difficult to photograph.
Most importantly when completing any spell forget about it completely! Allow it to stew in the Universe and expect nothing. Blessed Be Magical Friends!
