A spell for balance at the Autumn Equinox
The very concepts on balance, equanimity, and mutual respect seem to be in scarce supply in our world today. Unfortunately, we seem to have adopted a very digital and adversarial approach to life that puts all others in direct opposition to us, our values, and our beliefs. The Autumn Equinox is a time to try and reconnect to a gentle balance that strives to create bridges of connection between ourselves and others. Below is a spell to call upon The Great Mother Goddess to help bring healing at this most desperate time in our human history.
For this spell, you will need a candle, a glass of milk or non-dairy alternative, and a rose quartz.
Place the rose quartz in the bottom of the glass, and pour the milk over it. Envision peace, harmony, respect, love, and goodwill circling around you. Let that light go deep into the Earth and nurture it, and far into the Heaven's above you. Now light the candle, and raise the glass to The Great Mother Goddess as you say this chant:
"Great Mother Goddess, upon you we call!
Bring balance, respect, and goodwill to one and all!
Nurture our best selves, and protect our Earth,
Bring about Love's new birth.
By milk and stone, this spell is spun,
For the good of all, allowing no harm to come!"
Drink the milk (do not swallow the stone!). Pour out a little of the milk and the stone from the bottom of the glass as an offering in your garden or into a house plant if you live in an apartment. Let the candle burn out on its own.
Blessed be, and Merry Mabon!
