On the weekend, Joe and I went for a lovely ride, in the Spring sunshine, or so we thought. The wind whipped up as we rode through the mountain and at times, I felt like Mary Poppins, if I had an umbrella, I would have been flying off into the wild blue yonder! The weather stayed sunny but it was freezing! Thank heavens i had my thick leggings on and my leather jacket!
I was walking around looking for a nature object, for my altar and found alot of Old Man's beard growing on a bush, which I gathered to make my very own smudging herbs. This is something I was told about when I had my Dreaming treatment (I am still sorting out the post explaining it.. will do soon, I promise)
I wanted Joe to take a photo of me sitting on the edge.. after I got settled, the wind whipped up to a gale and I was sitting feeling very insecure...Old Man's beard grasped in one hand and trying to hang on to the rock with the other.
Been busy in my garden the past few days too - beetroot is in, my potatoes are up & I am just about ready to put my beans in - I planted some thyme in my sacred space for the faeries:~ Thyme is associated with fairies. Wearing a sprig of wild thyme, or essential oil of thyme, is said to help one to see fairies. If you place springs of thyme on your closed eyes and sleep upon a fairy mound, will supposedly guarantee your seeing fairies. Dried, powdered thyme, sprinkled on doorsteps and window sills, is an invitation to the fae into your home. Wild thyme, gathered from the side of a fairy mound, is especially potent for use in fairy magic.
The Moon is in her waning phase now ~ Waning Moon Magick:
From three-and-a- half to ten-and-a-half days after the full moon. The waning moon is used for banishing magick, for ridding oneself of addictions, illness or negativity
...oh and before I forget, if you want a post card from the Blue Mountains... just mention it here - I have two more left!
