This potent moon definitely signifies a time for things to blossom after lying dormant for many months. Tap into these new beginnings with this aromatic ritual that uses blossoms—what springtime is all about. Plan new adventures, step out in faith, and dream up the unknown, the new, and the unchartered in your life. Here's how it's done:
1. Make a little bouquet of flowers, so to speak, arranging them in front of your sage or whatever aromatic herb you love the most. Try hyssop, an herb with ancient connections to purification work, mugwort, sweet clover, and mullein.
2. Once you have a nicely held-together stick, tie it with a sturdy thread in any color of the rainbow. Put on a couple of drops of frankincense, a tree resin considered to cleanse and protect the soul, just before you light it.
3. When the time comes to burn, light the tip of the stick, let it catch fire briefly, then extinguish the flames and allow to smolder. Once lit, the sticks will smoke for a long time. They can be extinguished by placing them into sand or soil in a dish (never directly into the earth). Kept dry, they can be relit another time.
