Happy Spring Equinox, magical friends! Today officially marks the end of long dark nights and the beginning of brighter days. As the forces of light and dark converge today to create an equal balance of night and day, this is a powerful time to release any lingering darkness so we can move freely forward into the light.
We are also operating under the last few days of the waning moon here – with the new moon coming up on March 24th – so now is the perfect opportunity to let anything you need to let go, GO. And get it out of here for good! The past has been quite a trip and the future might be looking a little murky, but the only thing in our control is how firmly we stand in the present. This is a chance to shake off any heavy barnacles weighing down the mind so that we can sail forward more smoothly. (Still feeling this Pisces season, anyone?) Sometimes when outside circumstances make us feel helpless, it is helpful to refocus ourselves on the things we still have the power to influence – in this case, in the form of magical ritualized meditation. Enter this simple ritual that will serve as a physical manifestation of our commitment to leave fear and doubt behind, and meet what comes from a place of strength.

I’m sure many can relate — although it would be nice to always be able to set aside a scheduled moment for spiritual reflection, it doesn’t always seem possible. Sometimes we ache to delve into our inner work but can’t set aside more than a moment. So how can we squeeze in a little magic without any wiggle room? You don’t need any extra time or materials — a bit of creativity is all you need to create a magical meditation space anytime, anywhere!
