It has been a rough year for quite a few folks and I think, more than anything else right now, many need that special, loving energy that magick can bring. Yesterday, my daughter-in-law said, “You know, usually, I hate the Yule season; but, this year seems to have a special energy about it. I’m actually excited for Yule! The music, the lights, even the snow…okay, so maybe NOT the snow…; but, I’m in this year. I’m really in! And I feel that way because I can’t wait to give.”
I’ve felt that unusual quickening, too. It seems as if this year is going to be more special than some of the others in the past. I’m actually excited to put up my Yule tree (which never, ever happens). It seems like magick is everywhere, and its growing. This year, when you are making some of those wonderful crafty things you do (or cooking, or baking, or singing) add a touch of special enchantment to your project. Here are a few tips to get your personal zapper booming!
You Are The Magick!
* As you work on your gifts (or are buying them) visualize the person they are for. Think pleasant thoughts, surround them with white light, let energy flow out from your heart into the heart chakra of the individual for whom you are making (or buying) the gift.
* Don’t know what to buy or make? Check their signs — all three of them — Sun Sign, Rising Sign, Moon Sign. Sun sign only tells you their will, there’s a lot more to every individual than just that. The rising sign tells you how they function in the world with others, the face they wear. The moon sign tells you where their emotions lie. For example, my daughter is an Aquarius Sun Sign, so she loves to shop. Her moon sign; however, is Virgo. On an emotional level she will look at most gifts through the eyes of practicality. Not that she doesn’t like the elegant, she surely does, because that would be her Libra rising! My husband is a Sun Sign Leo; yet, he has a Taurus Moon — you can’t ever go wrong by making him good food or taking him out to a high-end restaurant!
* As you wrap a gift, take the time to sit quietly and hold it. Pour your love and good feelings into the wrap, ribbon, tape and gift. It will, indeed, be felt.
* Take the time to pay attention to Magickal Timing, particularly if you want a special empowerment to go along with your gift. What sign is the moon in? What phase? Or, what planetary hour does your item correspond to? Too complicated? How about the day of the week — these are fairly straight forward. Every little bit adds to the visualization and end process of gift giving.
Just this little bit of thought, just this tiny act of caring will brighten the life of someone else. You, too, will glimmer with joy. You just have to allow those bright feelings to rise within yourself and manifest outward.
Trust me, its worth it!
