2018 Ostara Sabbat Box Elemental Magick Box Subscription Box For Witches Wiccans and Pagans

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

Before you know it, the snow and ice and cold will once again give way to the green warmth of spring. The wheel of the year turns as always, the light beginning to lengthen our days since the solstice, and thoughts of new life and new growth abound. We lift our eyes to the reawakening of the sun Lord and give reverence to our moon Lady.

This year at Sabbat Box we have curated a collection of items that will hopefully enhance the advent of spring and prepare ourselves and our circles for the growth and increase that is to come. We purify our intention, solidify our will, and protect our newly-cleared space to do the work that the power of life and light can help manifest.

  • As some of you may know, 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 •


    Elemental Magick 2018 Ostara Sabbat Box - Subscription Box For Pagans

    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:

    • Elemental Magick
    • Spiritual Charging
    • Drawing forth the elements
    • Connecting with the elements individually and as a whole
    • Working with and learning about “elementals"

    During the early dawn of spring, it becomes more and more apparent that the days are growing longer. This point in the year starts to bring warmer temperatures, new flowers, and for some the last melting of this past winter’s snow. Our ancestors understood the significance of this time as an indicator for how the rest of the year would pan out--through the summer and into the fall. A successful crop planting during this window of time in the Wheel of the Year meant the difference between a bounty and a struggle. The basic building blocks of life (and survival) within nature were re-emerging and it was up to them to recognize those elements and use them to reach their goals.

    For this year’s Ostara Sabbat Box, we have curated a box that brings together this important time in the life cycle of our environment and the basic elements that even our earliest ancestors recognized were important for survival. Earth for planting, water for irrigation, air for pollination, and fire (the sun) for growth and increase. When we have a more complex understanding of what constitutes scientific elements, these basic four cardinal elements are also part of the foundation behind our magick and our magickal pursuits. It is with the elements that we connect with and correspond to in order to draw up our power to manifest a specific outcome. Just like the nature of spring, the elements combine together to bring about life, and in magick, the elements combine together to bring about change and power.

    BREAKDOWN

    One of the items that we just knew that needed to be included within this special box of elemental magick was a charging plate. For many of those who practice the craft, it is common for people to spiritually or ritually “charge” spell supplies, ritual tools, or magickal components prior to incorporating these items into our practices. In a nutshell, it is believed that when we “charge” an item, we are giving it purpose--essentially “breathing life” into the item. A charging plate in and of itself acts a s afocal point where you are able to direct your intent and energy into the item(s) you wish to charge.

    Each charging plate included in the box contains each of the four main alchelmical symbols that represent Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, along with a circle and intersecting lines and center point to represent the fifth element of spirit of “aether”. The circle and its points also represent the fluid connections between the elements as well. Each charging plate is custom made from red cedarwood specially for Sabbat Box by Alaska Laser Maid.

      COMPANY: LIGHT OF ANJOU

      ABOUT THEM AND WHAT THEY SELL: Light of Anjou is an online witchery shop that specializes in creating handcrafted ritual oils, spell candles, herbal potions, apothecary items, occult art and more! 

      Located in Maine, Light of Anjou was started by Anjou. Anjou is a hedge witch toiling in herbal potions, ritual and therapeutic oils, mystical art, divination, spirit work, and magickal tools. Currently crafting out of an 1800’s farmhouse deep in the forested mountains of New England.

      Anjou draws upon the power of the moon phases, the flux of elements, and the spiritual realm to craft powerful tools to help you in your witching journey. From psychic dream pillows to healing herbal potions and topicals, to ritual oils and divination tools, Light of Anjou is in and of itself a cabinet of curiosities, meant to tangle you in its web of Victorian Gothic romance, the mystery of the occult, and the magic in the deep, dark forest where the will-o-whisps dwell.

       

      In alchemy, it is understood that the four elements arose from chaos, and it is their contrary action (or counterbalance) that keeps our bodies in a state of equilibrium. I always include the fifth element, Spirit/Aether, because it is a realm that I believe is intertwined with ours.🌲🌬🔥🌊💫Working with the elements has been absolutely instrumental to my practice, but lately I find myself drawn only to Earth. As deep as I am in the roots and the soil, I long to be deeper. There are times that I lay in the snow and try to sink into the ground beneath and submerge myself under its weight. Feel the gentle pulsating of the plants and trees that await the coaxing of Spring. Lie still and solid and draw in water through my fingertips. What is it about feeling heavy that makes you want to feel heavier?🖤

      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.

      • OSTARA SABBAT BOX - ELEMENTAL MAGICK •



      Are you ready for spring? ~ Boxes are scheduled to ship March 9

      Elemental Magick - 2018 Ostara Sabbat Box Theme - This point in the year starts to bring warmer temperatures, new flowers, and--for some--the last melting of this past winter’s snow. During this time, some of us think about planting a vegetable garden or trying some new landscaping, which can not only make our homes more beautiful, but give us a great excuse to get out of the house we were trapped in all winter and enjoy the warm air and sunshine.

      Our ancestors, however, had a more practical reason to start working as the days started to lengthen: they understood the significance of this time as an indicator for how the rest of the year would go through the summer and into the fall. A successful crop planting during this window of time in the Wheel of the Year meant the difference between a bounty and a struggle. The basic building blocks of life (and survival) were re-emerging and it was up to them to recognize those elements and use them to reach their goals.

      Ostara, which is all about growth, fertility, and increase, is a celebration of this time of life and its gifts. When we consider our own goals in life as the year goes on, we too must recognize this window of time as an opportunity to take the steps toward a year of increase and abundance.

      For this year’s Ostara Sabbat Box, we are curating a box that brings together this important time in the life cycle of our environment and the basic elements that even our earliest ancestors recognized were important for survival. Earth for planting, water for irrigation, air for pollination, and fire (the sun) for growth and increase...while we have a more complex understanding of what constitutes scientific elements, these basic four cardinal elements are also part of the foundation behind our magick and our magickal pursuits. It is with the elements that we connect with and correspond to in order to draw up our power to manifest a specific outcome. Just like the nature of spring, the elements combine together to bring about life, and in magick, the elements combine together to bring about change and power.

      We are very much looking forward to sharing with you this special box of elemental magick for Ostara, with hopes of you finding a deeper connection to the elements themselves, while further connecting with each of their specific properties on both a magickal and mundane level.

      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.

      Greetings Sabbat Box Members,

The items featured within this most recent Sabbat Box will surely allow one to connect with Ostara and manifest renewal and growth into their lives.

      • OSTARA-RITUALS, RECIPES & LORE FOR THE SPRING EQUINOX •


      Ostara Rituals Recipes and Lore for the Spring Equinox By Kerri Connor

      • ITEM 1: OSTARA BOOK.........$11.99
      • WHAT:
       Ostara-Rituals, Recipes and Lore for the Spring Equinox (part of Llewellyn's Sabbat Essentials series) 
      • WHO MAKES IT?: 
      Llewellyn Worldwide & Authored By Kerri Connor
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Via the Sabbat Box Store or via Llewellyn.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Llewellyn has been a trusted source for books on Paganism, Magick and New Age topics since 1901. This particular book features spells, recipes, lore, invocations, correspondences, crafts and rituals that will help to inspire you to celebrate Ostara in your own unique way.

      BREAKDOWN:
      Part of what we wish to do here at Sabbat Box is to provide further resources for our members pertaining to paganism, witchcraft and the Sabbats. The Sabbat Essentials series are wonderful resource books and will truly help you find inspiration on how to celebrate the Sabbat in your own special way. Some may say that these books are geared more towards those new to the craft, but you would be surprised to read how much information is packed within these books, which is helpful for both seasoned practitioners as well as a novice! We decided to feature Llewellyn's Sabbat Essentials books when we started Sabbat Box, as this line of books is brand new to Llewellyn, (making most of them first edition prints) and they correlate perfectly with what Sabbat Box is all about. In fact, these first edition printings come out only a few weeks before we ship each Sabbat Box, which makes our members some of the first people to actually own and read them.

      The author of Ostara, Kerri Connor, has written quite a few Pagan books as well as  reference and how to books regarding witchcraft. She is also a contributor to several of Llewellyn’s Almanacs.
       
      An excerpt from Ostara—A Brief Invocation for Working with the Goddess on Ostara:

      Maiden Goddess, soon to be Mother, known by many names,
      I invoke your presence today, on this day of balance,
      of equal day and equal night,
      on this day of beginnings,
      to join with me in celebration.
      Goddess of the Earth, Goddess of all Living Things, Goddess of the Spring,
      join with me now.

      • NATURE GODDESS STATUARY & CANDLE HOLDER •


      Nature Goddess Statue Wiccan Earth Goddess Statue - Sabbat Box

      • ITEM 2: STATUARY.......$24.95
      • WHAT:
       Earth Deity Goddess Statue with Tealight Candle Holder — 7 1/4” tall
      • WHO MAKES IT?: Via Eclectic Artisans
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: The Sabbat Box Store or Eclectic Artisans.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Imagery and symbolism plays an important role in most spiritual practice; this is especially true within Wicca, as well as both modern and ancient Paganism. One of the most notable and revered symbols adopted from our Pagan ancestors is the image of the divine feminine—also known as “The Goddess”—representing the very essence of life, wisdom, fertility, femininity, womanhood, mystery and love.

      BREAKDOWN
      This particular nature Goddess statuary both embodies those fertile feminine characteristics but also portrays the archetypal references to the spring season. She is covered with flowers, leaves, and greenery, as well as spring animals. Her hands hold a vessel-shaped “cauldron” fit for a tea light candle—representative of the coming light of the sun, which in balance with nature brings forth life. This statue can sit on an altar to honor the divine feminine and draw in the energies of abundance, fertility, renewal, prosperity, nature, and divinity. There is representation of both the feminine and masculine included as well. The tea light may act as the sun and the statuary is the Goddess, and together life emerges and manifests. 

      • HAND POURED PURE BEESWAX EGG SPELL CANDLES •


      Hand Poured Beeswax Egg Candles - Ostara Egg Spell Candles - Sabbat Box

      • ITEM 3: EGG CANDLE.........$4.95
      • WHAT: Hand Poured 10 Hour Beeswax Egg Candle
      • WHO MAKES IT?: Sunbeam Candles
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: From Sunbeam Candles or via the Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: When working magick, performing ritual or just simply decorating an altar, many Pagans will utilize symbols as well as various types of imagery to represent or convey a special meaning or purpose. Take the egg, for example: it contains various correspondences and can be used to symbolize renewal, growth, emergence, fertility, life, and femininity as well as a connection to the very energies of spring itself.

      BREAKDOWN
      Each egg candle is made with 100% pure beeswax and will burn for 10+ hours. Sunbeam Candles, based out of Ithaca, New York, is a green sustainable business that is completely run on solar and wind power. They have been making high quality, eco-friendly candles since 2004. These particular egg candles can be used in conjunction with Ostara rituals, fertility rituals or in conjunction with candle magick to manifest the symbolic corresponding properties of the egg itself. Sunbeam Candles pays its employees a living wage and offers top notch candles at affordable prices. 

      • LAVENDER AND WHITE SAGE SMUDGE STICK •


      Lavender and White Sage Smudge Stick

      • ITEM 4: SPRING SMUDGE STICK.........$3.95
      • WHAT: 
      Lavender and White Sage Sacred Smudge Stick, 4 inch
      • WHO MAKES IT?:
      Mother Nature
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?:
       Most metaphysical shops, or the Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?
      Within each Sabbat Box we do our best to include an entire spectrum of different items that will enhance spiritual practice. One of our members’ favorite items are the various ritual and spell supplies we include, like sage. We think this lavender and white sage, hand bound together, fits perfectly with the height of spring. Lavender has many correspondences and representations, including healing, love, happiness and purification. Burned in combination with that universal herb of cleansing and purification, this will add another level of energy to all your practices and rites.

      BREAKDOWN
      This white sage and lavender smudge stick is the perfect way to clear and cleanse sacred space or infuse the air with a fragrant, floral scent. Coupling lavender flowers--corresponding with love, happiness, and new growth--with the traditional cleansing energy of white sage creates a life-affirming atmosphere for your altar and magickal practice. White sage and lavender smudge sticks are also great for those who are looking for something a little different than just sage by itself.

      How to burn a smudge stick: 
      • Fetch a small fireproof bowl, cauldron or incense vessel. 
      • Place your smudge stick next to a burning flame (a lighter or candle will do).
      • Allow the smudge stick to catch fire and burn at the end for a few seconds.
      • Once the wood has caught fire and is starting to emit smoke, extinguish the fire.
      • After extinguished, you will want to keep the smudge stick atop a bowl or ash catcher to catch the smoldered embers and to prevent fire. Use the emitting smoke to smudge your space.

      • PROSPERITY RITUAL POWEDERS •


      Prosperity Ritual Powders - Sabbat Box

      • ITEM 5: RITUAL POWDER.........$3.95
      • WHAT IS IT: The Sacred Well Prosperity Ritual Powders.
      • WHO MAKES IT?: The Sacred Well, via Devera Gifts
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: The Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Ritual powders are quite versatile and have many uses. Each vial is handy to have in a pinch, and perfect for any witch.

      BREAKDOWN:

      Since Ostara marks a time of rebirth, renewal, emergence, balance, and—most importantly—growth, we decided to include a vial of Prosperity Ritual Powders by The Sacred Well within the Ostara Sabbat Box. Prosperity ritual powders will surely help one to harness the energies of the Sabbat to help one manifest prosperity. Each vial contains a handcrafted blend of potent proprietary herbs and essential oils that will help you release your magickal intent. Ritual powders are an extremely versatile magickal tool and can be used in many different ways. The Sacred Well has been serving the Pagan community since 2007 and offers an array of unique magical supplies.

      DIFFERENT WAYS TO USE PROSPERITY POWDERS:
      • Dress spell candles with powders
      • Burn powders on a charcoal disk as incense
      • Add to a mojo bag or gris gris bag
      • Use as a house sprinkle
      • Place within an offering bowl
      • Use as an offering to the divine
      • Place within a poppet 


      • HEM PRECIOUS PATCHOULI CONE INCENSE •


      HEM Precious Patchouli Cone Incense - Sabbat Box

      • ITEM 6: INCENSE.........$2.00
      • WHAT IS IT?: 
      Precious Patchouli Cone Incense—10 pack
      • WHO MAKES IT?: HEM
      • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: You can purchase at the Sabbat Box Store.
      • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Patchouli is a highly sought after plant for its corresponding properties of prosperity, love, money, luck and sexuality


      BREAKDOWN:
      High quality incense is something every witch or magickal practitioner should keep on hand at all times. That includes an array of various incense with different aromas and magickal intent. Patchouli corresponds well with the spring equinox and the energies of Ostara; it is said to correspond to prosperity, money, fertility, success, and lust. That, along with its rich earthy scent, make these cones the perfect incense to burning while working prosperity magick or spellwork pertaining to love, abundance, fertility, and friendship.

      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 candle within a bag, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand, 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.

      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.

      Ostara Sabbat Box Theme Release • Emergence 0

      Ostara Sabbat Box Theme Release


      • EMERGENCE •


      Our theme this Sabbat for Ostara is emergence. As the Northern Hemisphere begins to green again, we can see this emergence over and over before our eyes: rising from the earth, hibernating animals make their way out of their dens; seedlings and bulbs poke out of the dirt and reach for the earlier sunrise; the Goddess has emerged from Her time of shadow and diminishment into a young Spring maiden. This is the time when many feasts and honorariums in ancient times were celebrated, praising and revering the vegetation gods and making sacrifices for a successful sowing of crops and increase in livestock. In a time when every new life, animal or vegetable, was crucial to continued survival, our Pagan ancestors looked to the joy of the baby calf or blooming flower as victory over the long darkness of winter.

      Ostara Sabbat Box Theme Ostara, historically, is also the Sabbat that commemorates the Spring Equinox. The word “East”—a cardinal direction most associated with the rising sun and the sign of air—comes from the German root word of Ostara. The day of the Spring Equinox brings alignment of the sun with due east, the day ending when the sun sets due west.  This alignment is the first indication that there will be a time period when the days will now be longer than the night, allowing for increased sunshine and an abundance of light.

      Ostara also the foundation of another Christian holiday, built on ancient Pagan feasts and traditions: Easter. Like Yule, there are many overlaps in traditions and customs that ancient Pagans practiced that were soon adopted by Christians. The ancient fertility symbol of the egg, for instance, is representation of the new life (and potential for life) that appears in nests at this time of year. Another common Easter symbol is the hare—the “Easter Bunny”—which has long been a representation of new life and reproduction.

      For Pagans, this Sabbat can also be described as “hopeful balance.” While it is an equinox, we understand that light and dark are swapping places, and that longer days and more light are our immediate future. This is a powerful time for Pagans to focus their works on increase, rising to the obstacles in life, and taking steps to foster financial and spiritual prosperity.Ostare Wiccan Sabbat - Sabbat Box - Wiccan Supplies

      As you celebrate Ostara this year—however you choose to honor this rising emergence of Nature—we encourage you to face the rising sun and look forward to brighter days ahead. While we may not literally be resurrected or reborn at this time, the Sabbat gives us an opportunity to look at those areas of our lives that we can renew and refurbish.

      Emerge from your dens, your caves of stagnation and lack! Throw off the winter coat of darkness and embrace the eastward dawn! Now is the time to allow yourself to be reborn—in your relationships, in your work, in your life. Rub your eyes and awaken! Let the spirit of Ostara help you shine a light on the path ahead.  Emerge from the old and dead…awaken to the new!
