This Witchy Wednesday entry is a day late do to the fact that I was hiding out in my bedroom and avoiding windows all day. I was trying to pretend the blizzard outside didn’t exist. It’s officially spring and yet the weather gods insisted on dumping a huge pile of snow on Bunnyland (Southern Ontario) yesterday! I seriously have never seen snow like it in my entire life. It snowed ALL DAY LONG. It was snowing when I woke up. It was snowing when I went to sleep. How I felt can only be described by a long string of colorful swears. It prompted me to write this spell:
A Spell to Accelerate Spring
Call on Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers and springtime, and give her an offering (or a bribe… however you choose to look at it.)
The offering could be a spring flower in a vase, festively colored candles, or even a drawing. Put the offering near a window and say:
Flora, I’m tired of this snow,
Bring me Spring, make Winter go.
Tulips, daffodils, or lilacs are best but almost any flower will do. Make sure it is white or brightly colored… think Easter or Ostara pastel colors. Avoid any dark colored flowers. Avoid red roses (because of their overwhelming association with romantic love.)
Pastel colored or white candles work best.
White is an all-purpose color and sometimes symbolizes rebirth or renewal, perfect for spring.
Yellow symbolizes happiness and sunshine.
Pink symbolizes friendship and non-romantic love.
Light Purple symbolizes healing and intuition.
Light Blue symbolizes calm and relaxation.
Any of these colors or all of them together would work for this spell. Light the candles and burn them all day near a window.
Draw a picture of spring. Draw green leaves, grass, flowers, baby animals, or whatever else reminds you of spring. Tape it to a window with the picture facing the outdoors.
