Danu's Cauldron: Wisewoman's Ways, and Wild Fey Magic

Living in a sacred landscape, walking between the worlds in the veil of Avalon Glastonbury. Where the old gods roam the hills, and the sidhe dance beneath the moon...wander into the mists with me and let us see what we may find...

Spring Transformation Magic


We are living in a time of transformation. Here we are with winter quickly turning into spring, and while a lot of the human world right now may seem less than positive there is always the opportunity to empower ourselves and use the magic of nature, if She’s willing, to help us and help others find ways to make it through, and even make it better.


Breath in the cool air of spring, breath out your frustrations and pain, feel Her rising sap push up from the earth, plug into Her power and you may catch a glimpse of a wider pattern unfolding. Remember the forest floor- all that death and detritus turning into new soil, feeding new shoots, turning fallen seeds to saplings. Remember hare magic as the Spring equinox approaches, and the wheel tips back into the light- transformation is our birth right. It is what we are. Hare can hide in plain sight yet leap to the moon and back, friend of witches and wise women, she knows ways we haven’t thought of…


This time of year mugwort is getting its first new shoots- full of all that raw spring energy. A bunch beneath the pillow is great for getting insightful dreams and seeking new vision. Vervain is also coming up- good to make a lustral bath or a space spray around the home to clear away old stuck energy and re-affirm the sacred. Tie vervain and fresh budding birch twigs to your broom to top up its magic. Hawthorn leaf tea in a quiet moment helps the heart know some peace and find some courage, to help you listen to its wisdom when making plans for the summer to come.  


Sow seeds with prayers for a healthier earth, let your banners and incenses wave blessings into the air, burn away your fears and pour your heart into the waters, that they all may know you remember them and call for change and healing. No just for you- though that’s fine if you need it- but for all of us, all of earths children.


Clear your aura and your mind by sweeping fresh birch or mint leaves around your body and anoint your brow with rosemary tisane to invite fresh thoughts- and when you are ready, when your plan is clear- ACT!


Spring blessings upon you. The time for change is always now.
