I was listening to this first song “Grandmother” and just had to sing along. Then came on the next song, one of my favorite pagan songs, “I Walk with the Goddess” and felt moved to dance and sing even louder. I was inspired to feel the love of the Goddess more through moving, singing, and clapping (I broke my drum a while back) with songs honoring her than I have felt in months. So I took time out to share this with you the playlist I am listening to. Turn up your volume, singing as loud as you want – no matter whether you think you cannot sing or not the Goddess does not care how you sound – now get your feet and arms or at least your arms moving. The Goddess does not care how our voice sounds or what we think we look like dancing she cares about the energy shared back and forth between her and you when interacting with her this way. So move, sing, most importantly have some fun this weekend with our Lady Goddesses!!!!! If it is nice weather go out and enjoy Mother Earth waking up in the Northern Hemisphere and going to sleep in the Southern Hemisphere.
“Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species-man- acquired significant power to alter the nature of his world.
“During the past quarter century (written in 1962) this power has not only increased to one of disturbing magnitude but it has changed in character.
“The most alarming of all man’s assaults upon the environment is the contamination of air, earth, rivers, and sea with dangerous and even lethal materials.
“…chemicals sprayed on croplands or forests or gardens lie in the soil, entering into living organisms, passing from one to another in a chain of poisoning and death.
“Or they pass mysteriously by underground streams until they emerge and, through the alchemy of air and sunlight, combine into new forms that kill vegetation, sicken cattle, and work unknown harm on those who drink from once pure wells.

Around the world, people tend to garden in different ways. Someone living on a large family farm plants their crops differently than someone on a half-acre lot in the suburbs. A resident of a big city in an advanced nation will grow things in a different fashion than a family living in an impoverished, third world country. While one person might use a large tractor and motorized equipment, another may use a simple shovel.
Still another might only use a pointed stick to make a hole in the ground. Since time began, the human race has managed to find ways to make things grow where before there was nothing.
In the early spring, many of us who follow earth-based spiritual paths begin planning our gardens for the coming season. The very act of planting, of beginning new life from seed, is a ritual and a magical act in itself. To cultivate something in the black soil, see it sprout and then bloom, is to watch a magical working unfold before our very eyes. The plant cycle is intrinsically tied to so many earth-based belief systems that it should come as no surprise that the magic of the garden is one well worth looking into.
Let’s look at some of the folklore and traditions that surround gardening and planting magic.

I felt I needed to do more. I had signed petitions. Lit candles. Offered prayers. And yet it still felt like it wasn’t enough. The Cosmic Cookie Trail led me to the following blog post on how to create a sacred water altar. THIS. It was exactly what my soul seemed to call out to do. It incorporates the four elements within the altar in a way I had not considered. Now where did I put the beautiful glass lotus bowl my friend Daisy gave me…….
May the Cosmic Cookie Trail held guide you on your spiritual journey of discovery.

Animals: Most animals from forests and woods and animals that are active at night. Wolves, bears, etc. Colors: Olive, black, citrine, russet Court cards: Pages Function: Reliability, stability, greedy, boring, materialistic. Leprechauns: A type of Irish fairy sacred to Earth, sometimes known as the ‘wee folk’. These aren’t the cute sort- they’re capable of great evil just as we are, and tend to be tricksters, lustful, and mean. Leprechauns are said to drink heavily and are shoemakers. If you can find a leprechaun and catch him, you can take his gold… unless you get tricked out of letting him go. Yes, leprechauns are usually said to be males, and loners at that. Long ago, shoemakers were traditionally male, so for the culture it makes sense. Qualities: Cold, dry, excessively heavy. Unyielding, stubborn, passive, malleable, patient and ignorant. Obscurity, excessive solidity, and rest or stillness. Sense: Touch Stones: Quartz, rock salt. Tarot trump: The Devil, The Empress, The Emperor, The World. Tibetan failing: Pride.
Tibetan wisdom: The wisdom of equality. Time of day: Midnight. Trolls: Quite the fearsome creatures, trolls. Though in the modern day most trolls are nothing more than an online pest, this race from Norse mythology is related to “trolleri”, the Swedish name for a kind of magic intended to do harm. They aren’t intelligent, but it’s clear one doesn’t need to be intelligent to cause harm. They have tough skin and regeneration powers, and will eat anything including metal and bone. The only way to stop them is to burn them, and their eating habits lead them to a disgusting sort of attack: vomiting on their target. Types of magic: Grounding, prosperity, ancestor worship, fertility, plant magic. Zodiac: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo
