HISTORICAL OSTARA Ostara is one of the newest sabbats. Ancient peoples celebrated the spring season, including Earth’s annual revival, rather than the vernal equinox itself. However, despite a lack of historical origins as a festival, the spring equinox is a part of an Earth cycle that predates humans, when the passive darker half of the year ends and the active lighter half begins. This astronomical balance, along with the fertility of the season, is what contemporary Pagans celebrate during Ostara.The name Ostara originates from an ancient Germanic goddess, Eostre, of dawn and spring. She is associated with eggs, fertility, hares, rabbits, and the spring season in general. As an explanation for the egg and hare association, contemporary legend has it that Eostre turned a bird into a hare but the transformation wasn’t complete so the hare laid eggs. Otherwise, very little is known about this goddess. https://www.greenwitch.ca/sabbats-seasons/ostara/

Song of the Witches BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (from Macbeth) Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and caldron bubble. Fillet of a fenny snake, In the caldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting, Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and caldron bubble. Cool it with a baboon’s blood, Then the charm is firm and good
On Wednesday, November 11th, Mystic Moon Cafe will be hosting a witchy roundtable/panel discussion about various magic factors, traditions, paths, etc.

About Horse Magick: Spells and Rituals for Self-Empowerment, Protection, and Prosperity
Discover inner strength and wisdom by bringing the power of the equine spirit to life with spells, meditations, and creative visualization.
Along with the bear, horses are a primary creature associated with shamanism and traditions influenced by it. They appear in 25,000-year-old cave paintings, such as those at Lascaux. They find a role in the modern African diaspora traditions such as Haitian Vodou, whose devotees are called “horses” for the spirits who ride them during trances.
The spirit of the horse exists in the subconscious minds of humans and takes shape in various forms, whether as a symbol of fertility in the land, as in Celtic mythology, or as a psychopomp, which leads the dead to the next world. The horse has made its way into the current of our collective unconscious as a universal archetype.
Horse Magick contains spells, rituals, chants, and meditations for many purposes, loosely based around equine imagery. Numerous traditions are represented, as are many deities, including Athena, Epona, and Baba Yaga. No contact with actual horses is required.
Through the use of spells and rituals, readers are able to magickally ride to their chosen destinies and fulfill their desires. Workings involve crystals, candles, and Tarot cards, items easily accessible for most readers.
Sonia is a Masters prepared Registered Nurse, Shamanic Practitioner and intuitive energy healer utilizing Usui Reiki, sound energy vibration, and equine therapy modalities; in conjunction with her Empathic abilities to help bring the body, mind and soul into resonant harmony.
Sonia is also a skilled horse woman with 30 years experience in the field of horse-related activities, and has recently begun to work with her equine partners to help facilitate healing.
