Earlier this week, I traveled down to The Big Apple to do some tarot readings with the lovely folks at Catbird! In the spirit of this week of love, we wrote a little Love Spell for the Self this Valentine's Day!
February’s humble beginnings exude of love and sweet gobblings of chocolate hearts with close ones. This special month brings in new adventures, discoveries and sometimes a spring sojourn into the wintery months (for those of us in the Northern hemisphere, anyway!). The days grow longer and the sun waxes into power. If you have a few moments, we’ve created a little self-love spell to be mindful of yourself always during cupid’s month of exuberation!
Light a candle. Add three drops of rose oil to the paper, or spray a gossamer halo of rosewater over it. As the floral essence settles, cup your hands over your heart and chant softly (in your head is ok, too):
When you finish the ritual, extinguish the candle and slip the card under your pillow…. Exhale in acceptance. Let the soft scent of rose carry you into your dreams.
The next morning, poke a small hole in the card and string a ribbon through it. Set your spell card somewhere special, or hang it in the window in your home, welcoming positivity. If you can, give yourself permission to do a little relaxation ritual afterwards (a mid-day nap, stretching or yoga, a walk in nature, listening to your favourite album, meditation etc.)
