Yep. Day 77! June 2nd! Those of us in big cities are still quarantined and the rest of the country has a patchwork of confusing rules that we are all trying to live by. Lots of folks continue working from home. Unemployment squats like a turd on the doorstep of many. Those who never got a break feel like they are carrying triple the responsibility load.
And so, after a respite of make-busy here at the RavenWolf hearthstone -our Quarantine Magick continues and you don’t want to miss today’s installment!
Here at RavenWolf Central the garden is finally in, most of the flowers are planted, the ritual circle is cleaned up, my Cow/Crow quilt is coming along nicely, and my toilet paper order arrived — something wonderful does run the universe! I built a trellis, dug the beds, washed the windows, pulled weeds, cleared an area for additional container gardening, set off fireworks for a family member’s birthday, washed the bird feeders, filled several shoppe orders for candles and herbs, installed a new computer, and laid down mulch. I just need garden stakes, a kid-sized lawn chair, and an umbrella for my Butzfrau, and I’m good to go!
Oh! And my peas are soon ready to harvest.
I continue to host internet platform meetings 3 days a week to stay in touch with magickal brothers and sisters. We’ve had guest speakers, healing circles, meditations, and discussions. In fact, we’ve been more in touch now than before the pandemic!
Wait. I also made this year’s Rose Liquid Fluid Condenser, gathering the roses for 3 days while the morning dew still laced the petals. The first comfrey harvest is this Friday right before the lunar/eclipse full moon when the fluids are highest.
Just about every article you read on how to perform a house blessing gives you a list of supplies and prescribed movements to make. For example, salt, white candles, smoldering herbs, a bell, and blessed water are the norm. Maybe a rattle. Sometimes a drum. Beginning in the center of the house and working in a spiral outward, or stationing yourself at the front door and moving to the back (or vice versa), using clove oil to ward the windowsills and a mixture of salt, vinegar, and oranges to wash down the porch and the front door…lots of ways to complete the task and a myriad of techniques from which to choose.
But, what if you did it a little differently this time?
What if you whispered to the house/apartment…and let it whisper back?
What if you let your living space choose what it needs?
I know you’ve done so much work to bring yourself into balance — rattle baths, rituals, meditations, spiritual readings, nature walks…and you’ve been clearing your living area, removing clutter, finding better storage ideas, choosing new decorative themes…but…what about the heartbeat of where you live? Is it strong? What does your living area need to vibrate in harmony?
Your Challenge Today: Take a deep breath and draw or outline in words on a piece of paper what the “soul” of your living area looks like. Close your eyes. Open your mind. What is the “personality” of your living area? Once you have this established, close your eyes again and ask this personality what it needs to be in harmony. A spell? A ritual? An object? Then ask what type of materials it feels it most needs in a cleansing technique that you are planning to use for its well-being. Gather these items. Move around the living space using your intuition.
Feel free to post what you have been doing this past week and how today’s challenge works for you.
Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature

I’ve been doing pretty much the same as you; getting the gardens in order, cleaning, getting ready for summer and the busy witching season. Trimmed the chestnut tree, transplanted the mulberry bush, moved the azalea bush b/c she was suffocating beside the deck, and moved my asters b/c the black eyed Susans were trying to squeeze them out. Lol! My thyme is almost ready for harvesting for Four Thieves. After the rain we’re supposed to get this week, I should be swimming in thyme! Woo hoo! It’s the only herb that’s lagging along in my garden. *grumble grumble* Harvested and dried flowers for the year, especially honeysuckle from the reservoir in town. Oh! And I found a pocket of magickal energy on a less-than-travelled path at the Rezzie (the reservoir)! That was found AFTER a conversation with Alan about how the honeysuckle was small and didn’t smell as strong as it usually does, and I wondered if all the magick drained out of that end of town. Nope, it just hid in the woods. Lmao!
Now I gotta get off my arse and get the magickal soaps a’goin’, my dandelion vinegar floor wash needs finished, and… my bedroom looks like how you described your overflowing closet, so I gotta get some bags and start pitching! Gods give me strength b/c you know I hoard things for later use and I’ll make up excuses as to why I can’t chuck them. Lmao! It would’ve all been done by now, had I not gotten sidetracked by helping Alan remove the mati from him, which included a good scrub down with my exorcism soap and a jingle bell bath; and then I got distracted by my garden and yard, and then…I overdid it and landed in bed for 2 days. Lol! Okay, so I’m making excuses b/c I hate cleaning my bedroom. Lmao! 😉
This is fun! Just the other day, I returned from a shopping trip and I wanted to finish my disinfecting with a good way to clean the floor. Vacuuming wasn’t the answer, and I couldn’t really mop well without vacuuming first – what to do – I suddenly got an idea (the house must have whispered)! I have a new, fairly large and abundantly bristled broom. I got my homemade disinfectant/cleaning spray and sprayed the bottom of the broom until it was fairly wet, then I swept the area like you normally would, but OMG, what I managed to pick up! I’ve never had a broom work like that before and it left the floors lightly wet with the disinfectant, so I knew when they dried the floor would be clean! I shall do this throughout the house now on a regular basis!
Oh, and I won’t forget the front door!
Thank you as always a word an idea a blessing.
Delighted to hear you received your toilet paper order. The universe does work in mysterious ways.
🙂 ❤ I just Love You Silver! So in tune this idea ! Spirits love when we are creative and always hear and see us. I have nothing to add after reading your article and it says everything ..the rest is between the lines and is Beautiful ❤
I am so happy, that I finished my taxes. A little balcony gardening is done. Yesterday I started to sew a dress. The cloths I am not wearing anymore, they are getting transformed into new outfits. So, I will sew them into new cloths, like Boho Chic or Gipsy style. What I also did, starting to prepare Lunch boxes for me, to get a cleaner eating. More Vitamins. A strong and powerful Immun system and good mood keeps us vibrant and healthy. Actually, what I did is more inner decluttering working on the past, connecting more to the inner cosmos.
Wish you all the Best. You all did so well.
Simply, my apartment wants me to organize things, and yes, get rid of things I no longer need or use. It wants a good spring cleaning 🧹. And refresh some energies. Let’s say before summer.
I have north facing windows and patio. I have a container garden of 🌱 plants that mostly prefer shade. I have full length mirrors lying on their sides and one that’s vertical. They are set up behind the plants to bounce daylight back to the plants for an extra boost of light. The cactus that I got fifty years ago and has come with me on all my moves is happily budding little cacti last summer and this spring. I’ve been finding good homes for these buds…
