2017 Ostara Sabbat Box - Moon Magick

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

Ostara is almost upon us, and while some of us this year are facing a winter that doesn’t seem to want to go away (thanks Mr. Groundhog), the colors of spring will soon be upon us, and Ostara is a celebration of the abundance of life and growth throughout nature. The fertility of the earth is celebrated at this time, and we tread our path with the lush greens and colors of blooms cropping up along the way.

Since this stop on the Wheel of the Year is all about fertility and increase, we at Sabbat Box decided to focus this year’s Ostara box on the penultimate example of abundant growth: the Goddess and her connection to the Moon. We have curated a group of items that celebrate the moon and her natural and metaphysical effect on all of us and nature. Whether you are learning about the many various Goddesses and Moon Deities through the the Moon Lore book and parchment, or conducting ritual or meditation enjoying the wafting scents of dedicated incense, we hope that this collection of quality products brings you closer to the divine feminine and the power that the moon holds over our magick.

  • As some of you may know, as of now we are currently at our maximum membership capacity at Sabbat Box. We have implemented a waiting list for those interested in joining when membership positions become available. You can join the waiting list here

    • BOX SYNOPSIS •


    2017 Ostara Sabbat Box - Moon Magick

    All of the items that we curated for you inside this box correspond with -or- may help assist you with the following forms of magick:

    • Moon Magick
    • Clairvoyance
    • Banishing
    • Moon/Esbat Rituals     
    • Manifestation
    • Psychic Intuition 
    • Connecting With the Divine Feminine

    Traditionally, when it comes to the celebration of Ostara and the spring equinox, we tend to associate this Sabbat with fertility, rebirth, balance, duality growth and renewal. Of which, many pagans tend to either celebrate or work magick to manifest such, during this time of year (while placing emphasis on, and drawing power from the returning sun to do so).

    But couldn’t we also look equally to the moon in order to work magick that corresponds to these specific archetypes as well? And wouldn’t incorporating celebrating and honoring the moon and the darker half of the equinox (on top of the returning sun), be a symbolic form of duality in practice? The answer is yes!

    When it comes to the moon you can find direct parallels between the Wheel of the Year and the lunar cycle. More specifically, each moon phase could actually be representative of a sabbat in and of its self, simply based on the similar correspondences that they each share. On top of that, most would agree that within the craft, the moon and her phases are considered to be one of the most important and influential celestial bodies that can effect our magick and the energies we attempt to work with and manifest. This makes working with the moon an integral part of the craft, regardless of the sabbat. The items featured inside this box were curated to help assist with opening up, channeling and working with the lunar energies this sabbat, and all throughout the year.

    BREAKDOWN
    Whatever you may consider yourself--a witch, a wiccan, a pagan, a mystic, or just a spiritual person interested in the occult--when it comes to the practice of the craft and the occult arts, it is important to continue to expand our minds in order for us to help further expand our spiritual practice. Staying in line with our theme surrounding moon magick, we wanted to include something in this Sabbat Box that could help expand your mind while channeling the aspects of the moon, hence the inclusion of this book, “Moon Lore” by Elizabeth Pepper. Moon Lore may be tiny, but it is filled with useful information pertaining to the moon that you can include into your own personal practices such as: sacred moon rituals, prayers, charms, moon spells, and lunar incantations. The book also includes a plethora of information pertaining to various myths and legends surrounding the moon, which helps us to further connect with the roots of our practice and why we do what we do..

Rosarium Blends makes their own ritual incense blends, essential oil blends, and natural perfumes using the finest herbs, woods, resins, and essential oils.

    • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This incense burner is a compact and convenient way to burn your favorite loose incense in an attractive design.

    BREAKDOWN
    The burning of incense, is in essence, a ritual in and of itself. There is almost a primitive feeling that we get when we burn loose incense, the same way our ancestors would. From the moment that we start the process, it is almost as if a direct connection is being made between ourselves, our ancestors and our magickal intent. It is this strong, mystic connection that we as pagans seek out during our rites to help draw power from in order to manifest our intent.

    With that said, when it comes to properly burning loose incense, one does need the correct tools necessary to burn them. Since we included a jar of such beautiful loose incense inside the Ostara Sabbat Box, we decided to curate the tools needed in order to properly burn them. Each burner comes with a visual info card with directions on how to properly use and burn loose incense on charcoal. Each set also came with 2 incense charcoal briquettes and a feather to waft the smoke where you would like for it to go.

    • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This unique votive candle has a black and white motif, highlighting the dual aspect of the moon of light and dark, as well as the duality of the divine, making it a useful ritual and spell component..

    BREAKDOWN
    Though it is made to be used specifically in combination with the moon and its phases, this double hand-poured spell candle captures the duality aspect of the equinox and the likeness of the different moon phases. Along with the candle, we included a simple manifestation candle magick spell on the card provided, to act as a guide that you can use to perform your own spell (throughout a complete lunar cycle).

    BREAKDOWN 
    Within the actual practice of witchcraft and Paganism there is a deep connection between the moon, the “divine feminine,” and the Goddess herself. In fact, within some traditions, these three aspects may be considered one in the same. Though this may be, the “Moon Goddess” may come in many forms and is known by many names. This gorgeous parchment will help you become more acquainted with some of them, and will also make a beautiful addition to a Book of Shadows.

    • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: A beautiful blend of essential oils focusing on the moon and her mysteries, this is a great addition to any ritual or spell.

    BREAKDOWN
    When it comes to us working magick, it is important that we do our best to correspond to and channel the energies of which we are attempting to work with. This hand-blended ritual anointing oil by Lailoken’s Awen was created specifically for working with the energies of the moon, as well as working with the divine feminine. Each moon anointing oil is crafted during specific astrological timing corresponding to the moon and is ritually charged.

    The gentle, subtle, feminine aroma that is emitted from this ritual oil will surely help to get you in the mindset of connecting with the divine feminine. Use Moon ritual anointing oil to anoint candles, charms, talismans, ritual tools, and your body during any working to draw in lunar influences, or for spells involving feminine forces, cycles, generation, intuition, fertility and during psychic work. You can also use moon ritual anointing oil in combination with rituals involving the home, or when working with lunar gods, angelic beings, intelligences, and other lunar entities. Made on the day and in the hour of the Moon.

    The Sacred Feminine Store

    COMPANY: THE SACRED FEMININE

    ABOUT THEM AND WHAT THEY SELL: My name is Montserrat and I was born in Barcelona. I have lived in many places and countries, and now I am in the United States.
    I have always been interested in art, and it was after a series of spiritual experiences that I started to paint with oils.

    My first paintings were of Cosmic Devas and Angels. Llater on the Divine Feminine was awaken within me, and I began to paint the female manifestation of Divinity. I practice the middle path of the Buddha and I don't associate with any specific religion, having found that all religions hold beautiful teachings. You will probably notice that some of my paintings have a religious air to them, while others are more symbolic.

    I also make candles, my themes are spiritual and the candles are designed by me, including the labels, that depict my original oil paintings of fairies, angels, mermaids, goddesses and totem animals. 

    Most of the candles sold these days are made by people who don't really care about the candles. It is just a job for them. It is easy to see why you should clear a store bought candle before you use it. All my candles are a conscious creation into which only high and inspiring thoughts and intentions are projected. You will feel the difference.

    I have an online store where you can find my art and handmade candles, as well as many other products that I have fallen in love with, such as all kinds of crystals, altars, spiritual jewelry, pendulums and many other wonderful things.

    • TIME •


    Ostara Sabbat Box Moon Magick 2017

    TIME:
    We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.

    This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!

    We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

    Spring Equinox - Duality

    Ostara 2017 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Moon Magick 0

    2017 Ostara Sabbat Box - Moon Magick - Sabbat Box a Subscription Box For Pagans


    • MOON MAGICK •


    2017 Ostara Sabbat Box Theme Release - Moon MagickThe next sabbat in the Wheel of the Year that we will reach in the Northern Hemisphere is Ostara, the celebration of spring and the vernal equinox--that point where the light and the dark of the day is equal. During the sabbat of Ostara, it is common to work magick corresponding to balance and duality, (due to the actual representation of both light and dark being displayed within nature around this time of year), but instead of taking the typical route with this year's Ostara Box, we decided to connect with the energies and celestial wisdom of the moon, which also encompasses the duality of both light and dark, in her own unique way. An important part of following a magickal path is learning to incorporate new and unique approaches to your spiritual practice and breaking away from the standard cookie-cutter mold of modern Paganism from time to time. For this Ostara’s Sabbat Box: the Goddess, represented by the Moon, and her magick will be the main focus and where we have drawn our inspiration from for this theme. 

    When it comes to the moon you can find direct parallels between the Wheel of the Year and the lunar cycle. More specifically, each moon phase could actually be representative of a sabbat in and of its self, simply based on the similar correspondences that they each share. On top of that, most would agree that within the craft, the moon and her phases are considered to be one of the most important and influential celestial bodies that can effect our magick and the energies we attempt to work with and manifest. This makes working with the moon an integral part of the craft, regardless of the sabbat. The items featured inside this box were curated to help assist with opening up, channeling and working with the lunar energies this sabbat, and all throughout the year.

    We hope the 2017 Ostara Sabbat Box and the surprises it holds inside will add a unique addition to your next ritual, meditation, or magickal working, and that you are able to connect with the guiding light of the moon to bring forth and manifest your desires for the coming spring.

    Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

    Imbolc is upon us, and that means that the long darkness of winter will soon be wiped away by the light and green of spring. The earth is about to wake up again to bring new life and new opportunity for growth and increase. Our ancestors saw the lengthening days and knew the divine would once again bless those who made ready for the coming season.

    This year’s Sabbat Box for Imbolc is a collection of products with this preparation in mind. One aspect of this preparation in Pagan circles is purification, and we have focused on this aspect to bring members the tools they need to ritually prepare minds and bodies for the coming work of light.

      • WHO MAKES IT?: 
      The Witches’ Almanac Publishing
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at The Witches’ Almanac or the Sabbat Box Store
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This handy guide is filled with information and guidance for the entire coming year as well as a permanent reference - perfect for any practitioner’s library.

      BREAKDOWN
      As you may know, when it comes to working magick and performing rituals and spells, there are many ways one can go about it. Though our methods and the manner in which we approach our spell work can be completely different from one another, some of the most important aspects of spellwork most witches and Pagans will commonly agree on are: practice, timing, and further educating ourselves on the various topics within the craft. With that said, we wanted to include something inside the Imbolc Sabbat Box to help aid you with your magickal practice while working as a guide to assist you throughout the entire new year. Since 1971, The Witches’ Almanac has been providing the Pagan community an invaluable written and pictorial guide on astrology, the occult, folklore, and magick. Inspired by The Old Farmer’s Almanac, it includes information related to the annual moon calendar, weather forecasts, horoscopes, legends, rituals, herbal secrets, mystic incantations, and spells, as well as interviews by Pagans for Pagans.


      • PURIFICATION RITUAL BATHS •


      Purification Ritual Baths By The Sacred Well

      ITEM 2: PURIFICATION RITUAL BATHS.........$8.00
      • WHAT:
       Handcrafted Purification Ritual Bath, 4.0 oz
      • WHO MAKES IT?: 
      The Sacred Well
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available via The Sacred Well or the Sabbat Box Store
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This intoxicating bath blend is a powerful tool to be used for purification and a great way to prepare for ritual or mediative work.

      BREAKDOWN
      Staying in line with our general theme of purification and purification magick for the Imbolc Sabbat Box, we decided to include this generous-sized handcrafted herbal purification bath from The Sacred Well. This particular ritual bath conatins a proprietary blend of black Hawaiian volcanic salt, red Hawaiian salt, white sage, rosemary, rue, hyssop, agrimony, and essential oils--all picked specifically for ritual bathing. In many magickal traditions, it is a common practice before working magick to not only purify and cleanse your sacred space, but ot also purify and ritually cleanse ourselves as well. The easiest way to do this is to take a ritual bath. It is believed that you should go into any magickal working without any spiritual attachments, and the purpose behind a ritual bath is to rid ourselves of anything that we do not want joining us in our magickal pursuits, including negative thoughts, intentions, or bad energy.

      Instructions: Place 1/4 of the purification ritual bath into your tub. If you prefer, you can fill a cotton tea bag with 1/4 of the ritual bath blend to steep in your tub or hang from your shower. You could also steep the contents of the bath in a pot of water and then pour the water over yourself in the shower after the water has cooled. You could use it as a scrub as well. Each pouch contains enough product for four separate baths. Use roughly one ounce (or 1/4 of the bag) per bath.

      BREAKDOWN
      It is believed that the idea of “spring cleaning” may stem from the common practices of our ancestors during this time of year. The return of the sun and warming days allowed our ancestors to go outside of the home more. Since they had been stuck inside so long during the winter, it was a common practice to cleanse and purify their dwellings around Imbolc. In honor of this tradition we included a pure white handcrafted beeswax candle from Lailoken’s Awen in the Imbolc Sabbat Box to spiritually purify one’s self or one’s space. Each candle is also ritually anointed and spiritually charged by Lailoken himself for purification magick.

      Lailoken's Awen sells handcrafted, natural magical supplies like spell candles, ritual oils and spiritual tools. 

      Awen is Welsh for inspiration. In the Welsh tradition, Awen is the inspiration of the bards, or, in its personification, Awen is the inspirational muse of creative artists.

      Burning incense is something we as a people have been doing for thousands of years. Our ancestors would often burn sacred blends of herbs and resins as a way of making an offering, as well as honoring the divine.

      2017 Imbolc Sabbat Box Theme - Earth Reawakened Sabbat Box Theme For Imbolc 2017

      TIME:
      We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.

      This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each item within their corresponding bags, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand and also putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on. This is a labor of love and we enjoy serving the community!

      We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

      Sabbat Box Important Member Update


      Greetings,

      It may be hard to believe, but Sabbat Box is about to celebrate its 2 year anniversary! Since March of 2014, Sabbat Box has been curating special boxes filled with unique magickal supplies in order to help each of our members further discover, connect with, and grow their own form of spiritual practice, while providing tools and inspiration to do such, inside each box that we ship. Since its inception, Sabbat Box has grown into a community of spiritual seekers looking to further enrich their spiritual journey, while bringing magick to the mundane world around them.

      We are humbled and honored that you have decided to continue to bring Sabbat Box into your homes, hearts and spiritual practice. It has been an amazing journey that we have traveled, and we continue to look forward to celebrating the Wheel of the Year with you! 

      Please become acquainted with our new and updated pricing for Sabbat Box memberships below. Each of our active members should have received an email informing them of the price change on 1/24/17. We also will be including an insert with information on it inside the Imbolc Sabbat Box that is shipping 1/25.

      THE NEW PRICES SHOWN BELOW WILL BECOME EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 8, 2017
      New Sabbat Box Pricing Breakdown

      Sabbat to Sabbat Plans:           $45.95 – re-billed every 45 days
      ½ Wheel Plans:                          $179.80 – re-billed every 26 weeks
      Wheel of the Year Plan:             $359.60 – re-billed once a year

      • No action is required from you.
      • These prices INCLUDE SHIPPING.
      • The only thing changing is the price.
      • The billing intervals for each membership plan is remaining the same.
      • Sabbat Box will continue to ship out 8 boxes a year.
      • You will continue to receive your boxes 7-10 days before each Sabbat.
      • Price changes go into effect starting on our Beltane billing cycle - Feb. 8, 2017 

      This is the first time we have ever increased our prices since we started Sabbat Box two years ago.

      WHY A CHANGE IN PRICE?

      RISING SHIPPING COSTS
      Since we started Sabbat Box 2 years ago, our overall costs to provide this service to the community has increased by almost 25%. The main contributor being the exponential rise in shipping costs – both a rise in costs of having products shipped here to us from suppliers, and the rise in costs to actually ship your Sabbat Boxes to you.

      We strive to continue to make each Sabbat Box better than the last, while also maintaining a standard of quality our members have come to expect.

      HOW DOES THIS HELP?

      KEEPS SABBAT BOX GOING
      This slight change in price will allow us to continue shipping Sabbat Boxes to our members without jeopardizing the quality of the products inside, or the quality of our service. This small increase will also allow us to hire staff, as well as expand and diversify the different boxes, products and services that we wish to offer you.

      Since Sabbat Box started in 2014, roughly 2/3 of our original subscribers are still active members.

      Imbolc 2017 Sabbat Box Theme Release • Earth Reawakened 0

      2017 Imbolc-Candlemas Sabbat Box Theme Release


      • EARTH REAWAKEND •


      Imbolc Sabbat Box Theme Release - Earth Reawakened The Goddess, dormant since Her Cronehood at Yule, reawakens at Imbolc as the pure Maiden, the “first” aspect of Her triple manifestation. Because She waxes and wanes like our moon, the Goddess waxes at this time, her renewed fertility about to blossom, soon to become one with the God at Beltane. She has shaken off the old, and prepares for the new.

      Imbolc is a time to reawaken. Like the earth itself, it is a time to prepare ourselves, to make ready for the spring and summer ahead. Part of that preparation involves rituals of purification and renewal while looking forward to the brighter days and months ahead on the Wheel of the Year.

      The light of the sun is beginning to return, the days lengthening now, and the light and energy of growth and increase is making its way into our lives. We are anticipating the things to come, the eventual harvesting of the seeds we sow at this time of year. Hopefully we learn and grow along with the length of days, positivity and light following us as we move forward.

      We have selected items for 2017’s Imbolc Sabbat Box with these aspects in mind. Purification and reawakening, celebration of the Maiden Goddess and sparking magical inspiration toward the coming season are just some of the aspects of the items we are including in this year's Imbolc Sabbat Box. We hope you find what we are offering helpful and meaningful to your Imbolc observance this year.

      2017 Imbolc/Candlemas Sabbat Boxes are scheduled to ship out 1/25/17.
