SUMMER ARRIVES as Sun enters Zero degrees of Tropic of Cancer creating SUMMER at last in Northern Hemisphere and WINTER in Southern Hemisphere!

THE LONGEST DAY OF LIGHT OF THE YEAR arrives Wednesday, June 20, 2021 at 11:32 pm EDT.

Cancer solstice or LITHA to wiccan pagans is the Crowning of the Sun King who embraces the Queen of Summer and begins his slow dance of death with Her. The longest night of Light in the North! Summer harvesting begins, Revel in the Light,

Ive been a practicing green witch since I was initiated in 1987 by Susun Weed.

Our organic garden is coming along nicely now with some heat. We;ve got purple beans, snow peas, lots of tomatoes many varieties, Brussel sprouts, cabbages, artichokes! my big experiment! cuces, potatoes, celery, 2 kinds of lettuce, chard of rainbow colours, green onion, rapini, dill, basil, rosemary, chives, tarragon has come up again very nicely and asparagus gets bigger ever year.  I love my little garden.

CANCER is all about Nurturing, nourishment, watery, emotional, sensitive, MOTHERING, MOTHER EARTH, home, security, privacy, family.

ON SUMMER SOLSTICE we always do a ceremony to mark the next main quarters of the Year. Pagans, earth/nature worshippers  mark 8 stations of the year.

SHORT CEREMONY RITUAL FOR SUMMER INVOCATION

Smudge, use incense, high quality, natural. Clear a space. Cast a circle. Begin in the EAST always. EAst is Fire spirit, the SuN.

call Spirit of the Sun to be present in your circle. Always move CLOCKWISE!  NExt to SoUTH, call in WATER ELEMENT.

MOVE WEST, call in EARTH element,add earthy adjectives,  move North call in AIR ELEMENT. – see Air ceremony below-join me Grail Springs Spa

Once centered call in the “As Above, So below, so within”  YOU.

Give thanks to Grandfather Sun for being directly overhead, for shining the longest, for casting the longest shadows on this day,

Give thanks for all things you love about summer, rapid growth, greenery, fresh food, swimming, sunbathing, relaxing long days, the cottage,

fireflies, beers, cold drinks, whatever it is you like about summer, pop songs, whatever… “In the summertime when the weather is fine….”

Deeper symbolism of Cancerian Summer is emotional security, safety, coming home. Cancer is water and water is emotions, why we are here on this earth plane, to feel, everything.

Imagine feeling, as Cancer is the deep security need of unconditional mother love, totally loved by the Great Mother Goddess in all her aspects but especially emotionally.

See, sense and feel the earth’s waters, her oceans as nourishing and sustaining all life on this planet. You are 70% water, the earth is 70% water.

Know that you are emotionally safe, protected, nurtured and loved. Sense this, feel it, know it as the blood flows through your heart and veins and arteries. The great mother pours through you in your blood, your tears, as sweat, as sexual secretions, urine as all bodily fluids. Your essence is love.

We must give back to the mother goddess. As Japanese Dr. Emoto shows our minds can move change and heal matter, especially water.

How interesting that a Japanese Dr. brought out these findings years ago almost unconsciously knowing that we would need them now.

So send your intention to heal the Ocean, the fish, dolphins, whales, krill, seaweed, all life, as all life is dependent on the ocean which we came from.

Honour your inner sun, the light within, the light that you are, feel the Inner fire, your inner heat, Kundalini energy,

You are a micro- sun. It is YOur turn to shine brightly now. As above so below. Your turn to En- LIGHT- en yourself!

Turn on the light to everyone else. The light bring consciousness to what is in the dark. The light brings warmth, heart.

Be thankful, be grateful. Vow to be en LIGHT ened more and more.  Light has triumphed. In the Tarot the SUN is the # 19.

Meditate on the Sun, the source of all life on this planet. Nothing could live on this planet if the Sun weren’t 83 million miles away, very close. A perfect distance.

Meditate on the perfection of the Universe, That all is Light, even the darkness is part of the Light, that the Universe is  UNI =one.

Place your hands on your heart, meditate on one Light, One LOve. Yeah yeah it’s a Bob Marley song.

I will be more conscious, as consciousness is Light, Illumination. Vow to LIVE THE LIGHT. Live  Lightly on this planet. Let your Light shine! Live your light!

BE still and meditate on Light. When finished thank the directions from East to North for being present in your ritual.

And dismiss them into their directions with love and light. Then dance, sing, Here comes the Sun, In the Summertime, Summer in the city, summertime, I like New York in June, who doesn’t like Gershwin?  etc..

Surrealist Tarot Deck

Surrealist Tarot deck of Leonora Carrington has gorgeous imagery based on her paintings. I need this deck. I’ve always loved surrealism and have been a strong proponent of women artists.

I wanted to be an artist since I was 9 years old. I told my mother that it was what I was going to be when I grew up. There was only Georgia O’Keefe that I knew of as a child who was a famous living woman artist and I loved her paintings. I went to Art College and specialized in Experimental Arts. I got involved in Feminist Art and found out there were many women artists since the Renaissance who have been suppressed and ignored.

Here is Leonora Carrington’s Astrology Chart.

An independent Aries SUN on MC of fame and Venus and Mars conjunct in Aries she was whole and complete within herself and Mercury in Aries too. Very firey.

LEO RISING with NEPTUNE sign of artists at 2 degrees in the 12th H of the unconscious, dreams, the underworld. its a very surreal resource.

Moon in Libra sign of the artist at 3 degrees is opposite to Mars and Venus too. Strong T-square of Moon-Mars to Pluto in CANCER at 2 degrees. That’s a lot of power

JUPITER in Sensuous artistic TAURUS in the 19th house of career trine her North Node in Capricorn in the 6th House of work. Saturn in the 12th House in CANCER inconjunct her Uranus in AQUARIUS. There were some issues with her father and her family as she was such an independent woman, She always felt like an outsider.

She was very smart and cerebral too with Juno in her 6th house of work in AQUARIUS.

CHIRON in PISCES at 27 degrees in her 8th house of inheritance, sex, power, control, secrets is trine Saturn in Cancer. She must have had some deep skeletons in the closet.

This is the chart of someone who is their own boss has a lot of energy and achieves a lot. very unusual woman, with a deep love of asrt Saturn Neptune conjunction in the 12th out of sign.

Beltane May Day, phallic fertility,fires and fairies

May 1st Beltane is a Sacred Phallic worshipping Green Man the Goddess lover’s day as May Pole dancing rites are held and Beltane Bonfires burn.

Beltane/May Day is an ancient fertility festival honouring the Horned Man or God Pan with a huge phallus. This cross-quarter day celebrates Fire, male sexuality, fertility and fairies. The word PANdemic comes from the root of this Pagan God who was demonized by the Catholic Church. 
Beltane celebration rituals begin tonight April 30. It’s Walpurgis night, the night before May 1st, Beltane.
SACRED PHALLIC and FIRE FERTILITY CELEBRATION FESTIVAL 
Light the fires of passion, as this festival celebrates love, conception, fertility, and the power of the masculine phallic force of

the horned God to initiate new life in the Goddess.

The ancient God Pan is ready to mate with the Goddess and impregnate her. This is a very ancient night of celebrating the “Heiros Gamos” or SACRED MARRIAGE between the Goddess and the God, meeting in the fields, or in the woods to honor fertility and new life.
Setting new intentions on this night is very powerful.
MAYPOLE 
The MAYPOLE is the phallic symbol and the participants weave their ribbons around as they dance the spiral dance of time and our interwoven connectivity with all our relations on MAY day.
 
This is one of the major cross-quarter days in the year. We are half way to summer in the northern hemisphere and the veils between the worlds are thin.
The FAE or fairies come out and dance in magic forest circles and all of our ancestors are close be. Beltane celebrates fertility and seeding new intentions with magic passion and light. It is a time of joyful invocation, healing, and beginnings.
Beltane is the time to plant all your seeds for future endeavours you wish to actualize and harvest at the end of summer.
Invoke the spirit of these intentions in the time of TAURUS, an earth sign.
Participants light the Beltane fires traditionally on hilltops and jump over it for purification.

the VEIL BETWEEN THE WORLD’S ARE THINNEST just like at Halloween or Samhain, the energy is the same. The Faery Queen goes out riding in the woods tonight.

Dancing around the MAYPOLE is an ancient fertility celebration of the maiden and the horned god who would meet in the dark, make love as strangers, embodying the God and Goddess.  

This is the night when Maidens would go wander in the woods, as FLORA, the flowers, NATURE SPRUNG newly born, maiden has nothing to do with virginity or marriage as they are simply young, and eager to mate, as they are in touch with natural sexuality, Nature’s rhythms, to give themselves to a stranger in the woods, the Green Man, also called PAN to the Greeks,the Horned Stag, called Cernunnos, in Latin, he is raw male phallic, sexual energy, virile and youthful. 

 CERNUNNOS the horny man

If a man had been created in the horned God’s image he would be free to be wild, without being cruel, angry without being violent, sexual without being coercive spiritual without being unsexed,and truly able to love.”

– Starhawk, The Spiral Dance

READ MORE about BELTANE –http://www.taratarot.com/id175.html

 Children conceived this night are considered to be magical and to belong to the realm of FAIRY as in The MISTS of AVALON. The maidens do not know the man they mate within the sacred marriage ritual.

Couples would also take vows to be in relationships for a year and a day, sort of test driving a relationship to see if they are compatible.

It is considered unlucky to marry in MAY as this month is dedicated to the wedding of the GOD and the GODDESS  alone.

 Another important custom is bathing in dew gathered before dawn on Beltane Morn, your beauty will flourish throughout the year. Sprinkled with the dew insures you of health and happiness. Or drinking from the well before dawn of Beltane is also good luck.

 Leftover Food from May 1st eve should be left out for the fairies.

We will light our fire tonight. Wishing you all a Blessed Beltane.

Reclaim Friday the 13th Goddess day

Friday the 13th

Are you superstitious? Were you born under a bad sign?  The scientific name for fear of #13 is called triskadekaphobia and the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia. Why is the #13 feared and supposed to be bad? The origin of the number 13 needs to be understood and shifted from fear and superstition.

The fear of #13 is really a misogynist brainwash which originated with the Catholic church.

 I love #13. The truth will set you free. Pet a black cat today and break a few mirrors. Breaking mirrors is a psychological metaphor for breaking free of your unconscious projections.

In the Tarot the #13 is DEATH and as the Western culture fears death and its own immortality it screwed all of this up and mad death bad and to be feared. 

Death was always presided over by The GODDESS. She who gives birth also gives Death. Again the Church’s fears of the Divine Feminine had to make everything associated with HER the Great Goddess- bad, negative, fearful, tainted. 

This year the energy is very lovely spilling over from April 12ths  beautiful energy. PISCES moon helps us tune into the psychic energy available so easily.

Moon sextiles Pluto In Capricorn trines Jupiter in SCORPIO

This is power energy. It’s grounded and capable of transforming the most difficult obstacles.

Moon conjuncts Chiron in PISCES in the evening where we feel vulnerable but can open to our own and others woundings pain suffering and embrace them.

Moon enters ARIES half hour before the witching hour in EDT and a new cycle begins.

 Thirteen is the sacred number of the Goddess, the DIVINE FEMININE because it is the number of annual LUNAR cycles. Friday is named in honor of the Nordic Goddess Freya who is also the planet/ Goddess Venus. The Moon is one of the main embodiments of the Goddess. Women’s menstrual cycles are synchronized to the moon and women were seen to be earthly representatives of the Goddess, Her mysteries and immortality. Pagans worshipped the Goddess, the moon and Her natural cycles of death and rebirth which women partook of every month. Woman’s periods are equated with the number 13. 

To further suppress Goddess worship, the church made the number 13 into something evil, feared and superstitious as they feared women’s powers as creatresses as magical.

Friday the 13th is really an anti-pagan Goddess day and I don’t like it, as it continues to be portrayed that way in error. This keeps unconsciously programming fear of the feminine, intuition, magic, nature, menstrual blood, and women’s power.

Black cats are “familiars” of witches. All cats absorb negative energies and are highly sensitive to spirits and other energies which we normally can’t sense. If you’ve ever had a cat of any color you know this.

On this day, Friday the 13th I honor the Goddess, the Divine Feminine and the lunar cycles. I remember and honor myself and all women as holders of the mysteries within our bodies.

Here are 13 important facts superstitious people need to know about

Always choose LOVE over Fear.
I choose to love and honor the real positive magic of being alive; naturally intuitive and connected imminently with nature.

Also I do not believe in superstitious curses and their removal. Yes there are negative energies and entities. I do not ascribe to the belief in curses or blaming your life situation on that. All negative intention is black magic.  It is all about energy. Thousands of unscrupulous lying phony psychics claim to remove curses etc. but they are only manipulating naive unsuspecting powerless desperate people. I am totally against this position. Do not project your own powerlessness onto someone else as having some amazing power who claims that they can remove your troubles or provide an instant fix for thousands of dollars.  Please don’t pay phony psychics to perform rituals, light candles or pray for you for exorbitant prices. That’s all a hoax.  Yes, positive intentions work, only you can change your own life, no one can do that for you. It’s a matter of perspective and psychological shamanic awareness.  I help my clients to get empowered. Stop believing the popular myths which religions create just to control you. That’s black magic too. They always blame their own sins onto others.

Samhain Witches New Year

Halloween Samhain The Witches New Year

witches Samhain Halloween Tara Greene witch

These days Halloween has become another day in the year in which to sell lots of scary rubber and plastic paraphernalia, fake blood, creaky coffin lid opening soundtracks, the Monster Mash, etc etc. another commercial holiday. Children dressed in costumes go door to door with their pillowcases {environmentally friendly} asking Trick or Treat! The kiddies are given way too much sugar, and carefully pre-packaged treats. Adults these days get into the Halloween theme by dressing up- straight guys love to be able to go out in drag on Halloween and generally party, funkily “spook-up” their environments and drink a lot. Lots of scary movies get shown.

But let’s not forget the origins of Halloween. It is Hallowed Evening. A Holy Evening, the Ancient Pagan/Wiccan New Year during the month when the Sun is in Scorpio, sign of Birth Death and Transformation. It is close to the mid-point between Autumn and Winter Solstice. Death is Rebirth. Wiccans honour this eve as the night when the veil between the two worlds is thinnest and much scrying, gazing into crystal balls and connecting with the spirits of the dead goes on as this night offers easiest access.

The Wheel of the Year Turns and this is a Sabbat or Sabbath Night, covens gather to do Ceremony. This is a Sacred not a Scared Night.

I wish in the midst of your pumpkin carving and revellery that you take time out to honor this day as it was originally intended. Remember in the midst of all the superficial trappings of Halloween, the hundreds of thousands, some say up to 9,000,000 mainly women, children and men who were accused of being witches by the Catholic Church who were tortured and burned at the stake. Old women, crones, medicine women, herbalists, midwives, pagans,their families, the poor, all innocent people who lived in harmony with Nature, who Loved their Mother the Earth, who knew the Wise Women Ways, the ancient ways to heal, to tend the sick, the dying, the mothers giving birth. It was a misogynist nazi Christian tyranny that went on for over 300 years in Europe and to the New World where the last woman was burned at the stake at Salem. Remember this Holocaust because it wasn’t so long ago. You didn’t have to be Jewish or Muslim you mainly just had to be a woman and therefore evil in the sainted eyes of the Holy Christian Church.

I remember my own burning, the Inquisitors {one of whom turned out to be in this present life, my first husband, and a couple of Real Estate Agents, one Jewish, one Black} I relived this memory during a Holotropic Breathwork session. Many other women also relived the same experiences. It was horrible, my own two children were forced to stand and watch as their mother was tied to the stake and the fire lit. Of course I wasn’t meek or mild, I screamed and cursed them all for their inhumanity and ignorance, for their sadism and cruelty.

Those 100,000-200,000 to 9 million innocent souls who were terribly tortured and burned are back now on this earth.

Deep in the cells of your being in your cellular consciousness be you male or female at this time, you remember the Burning Times when you lived in total fear, when you hid you pagan religion, your ability to help, to heal, when tyranny was all around and anyone could accuse you of being a witch thereby ensuring your almost certain death. Watch The Burning Times a Canada Film Board movie which chronicles in detail this stain upon humanity.

Light a candle for those hundreds of thousands of souls who were innocent and remember what it was like. Given 6 degrees of separation you or someone you love, your children or your dog or cat, a friend or even your landlord was surely enough one of those people.

It’s time to acknowledge the deep pain in the shadows of our unconscious. The only way to heal it is to acknowledge that shadow, let the tears flow, the grief, the agony. This brings it out of unconsciousness otherwise that shadow control our actions unconsciously and allows us to keep inflicting pain on others and self, believing that we are not worthy, not lovable, deceitful, sinners, powerless. There is a collective shadow of women being afraid to hold their power and beauty.

As this is a New Year in the Ancient Count of Days Light a Candle of Illumination and Enlightenment and go beyond the rage, the anger into Love and Forgiveness. For the only way out is to forgive the accusers for their ignorance. This takes great strength and courage, for as you Forgive them you also forgive yourself and allow yourself to be free of the past.

They will get their karmic comeuppance.

If you want to contact Lilith directly in meditation do it now.
Her symbols are the owl.

If you have problems with your periods then you need to tune into Lilith-she went to live in a cave by the Red Sea. Retreat into your holy womb while you are menstruating. You shouldn’t be out in public for three days. That is the ancient tradition. Because you are totally psychic tuned into the Dreamtime and able to contact your own YONI wisdom directly. That is why periods became “taboo” by the Patriarchy. Tabu originally meant Sacred. 
The Black Madonna is related in some ways to Lilith.

Attract love in a radical new way

Venus squares URANUS Aug 24
This is another Cardinal Cross at 28+ degrees Cancer and Aries.
Venus rules women; female sexuality and romance; love and values. Venus rules money the arts and luxury.  
Cancer is the sign of the mother the womb itself; the unconscious; our homes and is the most traditional and biologically imperative role for women as being engaged in nurturing creating emotional safety; bonding feeding and creating and sustaining relationships.
the Venus square to URANUS in ARIES
Signifies radical change in our sexual loving and the role of the feminine.
VENUS sesquisquares NEPTUNE in PISCES today.
This 135-degree Minor aspect is a square and a semi-square. This puts additional pressure on changing the nature of romantic love and spiritual love.
Traditionally women waited for the men to make the first moves. Many women say they can’t find a  “good man.”  I feel that it is up to the women to attract and create the sexual loving and spiritual “ideal” relationships which they desire. It was always this way. The women teach the men. The women are the queen bee’s the ones with the honey. The men are dependent on the women biologically and naturally. But we live in such a patriarchal culture and roles have been so stereotyped and twisted for thousands of years from when women were revered as the source of all life. The return of Goddess spirituality; paganism; witches and feminism is all part of this return to balance and wholeness. These days most women are usually more open independent and aware than many men.
These days most women are usually more open independent and aware than many men although there are many younger men sharing childcare; stay at home husbands and women who earn more money than their male partners. Many men are on a conscious spiritual path as well spiritual warriors creative types healers teachers writers and artists. 
Venus square Uranus is radical love.
This isn’t just about falling in love with the evolution or radical people philosophies and ways of doing things. It is also about women being on the radical frontlines of change in our society very much so. I feel this is more to do with creating love in a radical new way. 
We have lost touch with the origins of the Divine Feminine and we must go back to that and reinvent that energy to suit the modern world. This makes this revolution much more complex. Uranus is about unique individuals who work collectively who support the group or hive mind. 
This aspect can be used to revolutionize and change your old relationships. First, you start with yourself.
 
Theoretically, I believe that you can fall in love with anyone. Ultimately “falling in love” is about women opening up to her own inner masculine her Beloved or animus which is spirit or her Higher self. That is the eternal intimate relationship that is always there for each person. This is symbolized by the 6 pointed star. The upwards pointing triangle is the masculine and the downwards pointing triangle is the feminine. The star or Merkaba symbolizes the sacred union of the Lovers wholeness and unity. In the Tarot the image of the LOVERS is the number 6. This is a 2=4 = 6 day.
love relationships merkaba Tara Geene
Merkaba or 6 pointed star symbolizing the sacred marriage 
Once a woman creates this inner marriage by first listening to her own intuition and feelings; to her own soul and dreams; to her own womb then her inner animus or inner masculine energy will act on her behalf to please her and help complete her and to co-create with her in the world.

Heaven on Earth, tara Greene astrology

                                                Radical lovers

Falling in love and attracting someone who really is a sacred mirror and partner for you happens after that. When you are feeling whole and complete and don’t need another person. You must be free
of that need. You may still desire
to experience a relationship with another on the physical plane outside of yourself. They are your mirror and it is the best way to grow spiritually. It isn’t always easy or a bed of roses either.
The person with the higher vibration will pull up the one with the lower.  Integrity honesty and boundaries are important. Two beings must be at the same soul level of growth for a real physical relationship to work to match each other at major points. 

Rumi Lovers Napoleon Brousseau Tara Greene

Lovers dont finally meet somewhere… Rumi

If you hold this inner sacred marriage then you will
attract someone who mirrors your own inner wholeness. That is radical. It is not just self-love. It is also self-awareness and self- acceptance. It takes work.  
The poet Rumi fell in love with Shams a traveling spiritual teacher and in him saw the Beloved. He wrote over 30000 poems from that contact during and after Shams was killed. Rumi saw God in this human person. But Shams was really a version of himself and his own inner connection to God. Shams merely was the spark.
Use this planetary energy to help you change the way you view and create relationships. For men, the reverse sexual polarity would work. Even if you are gay or trans or something in between there is always polarity at work to establish wholeness and balance. Our universe is based on polarity despite the modern liberal attempt to blur the boundaries.  You can’t mess with Nature.
What do you think? Your feedback is a necessity.

Spring Equinox rituals for transformation

The Vernal Equinox is one of the most powerful days of the year as the balance of Day and Night and the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere is celebrated. Celebrated as OSTARA by Algo-Saxon and Germanic tribes as a celebration of the First day of spring.  The Green Man who fertilizes the Goddess is resurrected and the symbols which are associate with Easter, rabbits, and eggs are basic symbols of fertility. An American Witch and poet named Aiden Kelly who was looking for sabbat names more interesting than Spring Equinox ended up adopting Ostara for the Vernal {spring} Equinox and we’ve been using it for over 40 years now. 

This is a powerful day for Ritual and Ceremony to release old energies and transform them.  We are aligning ourselves with the relationship of the Sun to the earth. Call in the four directions and elements, in the indigenous tradition I was taught we also call in the 4 non-cardinal directions during the 8 stages on the circle of the wheel of the year. Pagan and

To begin the ritual first smudge yourself. Create a sacred space or circle. Call in the four directions and elements, in the indigenous tradition I was taught we also call in the 4 non-cardinal directions during the 8 stages on the circle of the wheel of the year. Pagan and Druids, and Tibetans also mark an 8 spoked wheel of the year. 

You will need some soil and some seeds. Flowers are also used to represent the growth of nature that will be arriving soon. 

Wear red yellow or green.  I don’t do banishing rituals or spells but transformations.

Ritual items” a black and a white candle, a yellow or green candle. Smudge and incense. Essential oils of jasmine or rose flowers. Paper and a black marking pen and a gold one. A lighter or matches, a fire-proof container, seeds a container and some water.

Split the paper in two and with the black pen right “Be Gone” on 1 half. Write all the things, situations, feelings and habits that you desire to let go of and to transform. Take your time. Place this negative list under the black candle. 

 Then as you leave the sacred circle with spirits and elements you have called in you must say ” All my ancestors.” before you can leave the circle otherwise you dismiss all of them in a very crude dishonouring way. Never leave a sacred circle without acknowledging the spirits which you have summoned. Then take a shower or bath to cleanse yourself.  Visualize the water washing away any heavy negativity and feel that your aura and spirit becoming clean and new.  Get dressed in clean clothes and anoint yourself with the essential oils or you can also do this ritual naked or “skyclad” as most witches do. 

Go back to your sacred circle and as you enter you say “All my ancestors.” as a sign of respect.  Take the second sheet of paper and write rebirth on it in gold ink. Write down all of the positive goals, affirmations, positive changes you wish you to grow and have.  Affirm that you have all of these now. Never say ” I want, i desire, i should, I would, I hope, or I wish” these statements banish what you are trying to create. Feel how you feel when you would have all of these things. It’s important to bring emotion into your projected desires.  Take your time. When your accomplishment list is completed put the gold-inked list under the white candle.  Light the black and white candle and incense. 

You will burn the negative list in the black candles flame and throw it in a fireproof container.  and use its flame to set it afire and throw it in the ashpot, etc. As you do this say:

”  Let go of this negative energy and I transform this negative energy into positive energy, by the Light of the candle and of the increasing Sun. So may the dark be transformed into the Light. So mote it be. So it is.” 

Then after this take the positive list and you will light it with the white candle as an ignition of fire. State out loud “I have the love of my Beloved for which I am grateful, I am blessed, healthy, healed, whole, joyous, abundant.” Or whatever is on your list.  Set this lit alight with the white candle and use it to light the third green or yellow candle. Take the ashes of the positive list and put then in a shell or fireproof container. 

The third green or yellow candle is now lit.  You will take the seeds and pot of soil and plant the seeds in the soul while saying out loud.

” On this day of balance between the Masculine Sun and the Feminine Earth may all beings be balanced, whole, happy and joyous. I celebrate the Sacred Marriage of the God and Goddess of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine today and all days. May we celebrate equality, peace, respect, and love amongst all peoples and within ourselves. As above, so below and so within.

“I plant the seeds of new positive growth in the fertile soil of Mother Earth. As life returns to earth I am also reborn anew, in the Light. As Persephone is reunited with her Mother Ceres/Demeter again, all beings, creatures, rivers, and situations, all that has been out of balance is whole and balanced again upon this Vernal Equinox. “

You can sit and meditate then take your ashes outside and bury them in the earth where they will fertilize new growth.
