2018 Beltane Sabbat Box Celtic Tree Magick Subscription Box For Witches Wiccans and Pagans

Hail and Welcome, Sabbat Box Members and Friends!

Beltane has always held a special place in our hearts. Aside from corresponding to the Sabbat of fertility and fire, Beltane happens to be our yearly anniversary box for our subscribers, and this year's Beltane Box actually marks our 25th shipment to our members. That means as of Beltane of 2018, we have been shipping Sabbat Boxes to our customers for 3 years! Can you believe it?

Though Sabbat Box "officially" started in March of 2015, we celebrate our anniversary on Beltane, since it was the very first box we shipped to our subscribers.

Through Sabbat Box, each of our members also have helped to support the Pagan community from within, since we work with a vast array of unique vendors, artisans, and suppliers to curate the products inside of your boxes. We pour our hearts into each box that we ship, placing a piece of ourselves inside each box for you to enjoy. With each passing Sabbat doing our best to continue to make our service the best it can be.

Aside from exploring each Sabbat with our subscribers, we have also explored a wide variety of spiritual topics with each of you. From working with ancestors and creating a protected sacred space, to banishing and manifesting...From elemental magick to kitchen witchery, to divining the future and working with the divine. With Sabbat Box, our members have been able to learn, become inspired and find new means of working magick while also adding a little magick to the mundane.

    • BOX SYNOPSIS •


    2018 Beltane Sabbat Box Celtic Tree Magick Subscription Box For Pagan Witch Subscription Box Wiccan Subscription Box

    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:

    • Celtic tree magick
    • Ogham divination
    • Celtic myth and lore
    • Connecting with nature in different ways
    • Druidic mysteries
    • Earth magick

    The Celts—It is from their wise ones, their shamans, and their lore keepers that so many of our modern neo-pagan traditions we practice today stem from. For this year’s Beltane box, we thought what better way is there to further connect with our spiritual roots, the roots of those who laid down the foundation we use and and tap into, in order to draw forth and bring about change while also further providing spiritual nourishment and spiritual meaning into our lives? Many of these roots lay specifically with the ancient Celts; to further connect with their mysteries of the past is to further connect with ourselves and our practices today.

    To get a better understanding of the ancient Celts and to help unlock the mysteries and influence they still hold within Wicca and the craft, one must understand the ancient Celtic people’s connection to nature. the Celtic people had a very special connection with nature; more specifically, they had a deep connection with trees. The Celts believed that trees were harbingers of wisdom and information, each tree offering practical, magickal, and healing attributes. To the Celts, to understand the magick of trees was to understand the natural world itself. It was their way of connecting with and tapping into the raw elements in which we all stem from: “the divine.”

    For this year’s special 3 year anniversary Sabbat Box for Beltane, we dive deeper into the study of what the Celts as a people practiced and held sacred. Inside this box you will discover tools and information that will further assist you on your path by learning about the past to aid in the present.

    BREAKDOWN
    Inside each Beltane Sabbat Box is a specially hand crafted set of Ogham staves made by Dragon Oak. In order to unlock the spiritual mysteries surrounding the Celts, one must have a good grasp and understanding of the Ogham (pronounced “Oh-Em”). Though these handmade staves were included in each box to be used as a form of divination (meant to further enrich and deepen your spiritual practice), the Ogham is so much more than just a system for divination. It is an ancient creed, an alphabet, a form of communication and a unique system of folk lore and magick representative of trees and nature that was devised by the Celts roughly 1700-2000 years ago.

    Each Ogham staff set comes with the original 20 Oghams used by the Celts along with a reference guide on how to use them for divination purposes and is presented in a green silken bag.

    When it comes to the traditional use of Oghams, specifically for divination, it is believed that the person wishing to use Oghams should actually be the one who physically creates their own Ogham Staff sets — in order for one to connect with the very nature of each of the trees (and the journey it takes to ascertain the wood). The procurement process of the wood is believed by some to be a rite in and of its self. Also, in a “traditional" sense, each Ogham is technically suppose to also be made of the wood that the Ogham represents and corresponds to (i.e. a staff of Birch wood for the Birch Ogham, a staff of Yew for the Yew Ogham etc.). These sets that were included inside are the perfect choice for someone who is looking to get their feet wet with using Oghams prior to creating a full set themselves in the traditional manner.

      This exclusive hand-crafted stick incense by Charme et Sortilege was made specifically for our Celtic Tree Magick Sabbat Box to help invoke and connect with the mystical energy of trees. What makes this incense unique is that it is comprised of 3 separate blends of oils, offering a changing aroma as it burns. Each stick starts with a base dip of purifying fir essential oil. From there as you light the tip, you will notice the first half of the incense combines with the fir to emit a light and airy aroma and energy, like the canopy of a tree. As it slowly burns, the scent becomes more earthy and grounding, like a tree’s roots. Perfect to burn when working with Ogham or Ogham divination..

Due to its tree like appearance, some practitioners use tree agate in ritual or meditations to connect with ancestors as well as channel earth energy, making this a helpful crystal to be used along with Celtic tree magick or divinatory work where you receive ancestral guidance..

        Celtic Tree Magick - Beltane Sabbat Box Theme

        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.

        • BELTANE SABBAT BOX THEME • CELTIC TREE MAGICK •



        BELTANE SABBAT BOXES SCHEDULED TO SHIP: APRIL 21

        Druids and CeltsIt was from the wisemen, shamans, and lore keepers that so many of our modern neo-pagan and Wiccan traditions stem from. For this year's Beltane box we thought...what better way is there to further connect with our spiritual selves than to connect with our spiritual roots; the roots of those who laid down the foundation in which we use and tap into, in order to draw forth and bring about change, while also further providing spiritual nourishment and meaning into our lives. Many of these roots lay specifically with the Celts, and to further connect with their mysteries of the past, is to further connect with ourselves and our practices today.  

        The Celts had a special connection with nature, more specifically trees. The Celts believed that trees were harbingers of wisdom and information, with each tree offering practical, magickal, and healing attributes. To the Celts, to understand the magick of trees was to understand nature itself -- it was a way of connecting with and tapping into the raw elements in which we all stem from.



        Beltane itself marks the halfway point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, but the sabbat is so much more than just its astronomical and astrological significance. We celebrate Beltane--as well as the concept of the Wheel of the Year--thanks to the Celts, who marked this occasion as the one of the four fire festivals of the year. 

        One of the most recognized traditions of the Celts on Beltane was lighting a bonfire, which was meant to represent a celebration of the light and the sun as the days start to turn longer on the run up to Litha, (a.k.a. the summer solstice). Some traditions speak of the bonfire fueled by burning of the nine sacred woods, which come from the first nine trees of the Celtic tree calendar: birch, rowan, ash, alder, willow, hawthorne, oak, holly, and hazel.

        Another more modern Celtic based tradition is to use these tree's woods in a bonfire as a form of divination; a way to allow the flames and movement of the fire to provide hints and clues of what is to come, especially in reference to foreseeing the coming summer and harvest season. Since Beltane sits opposite Samhain on the Wheel of the Year, some believe that the veil thins once again on this day, making Beltane an opportune time to practice divination and connect with the hidden and unknown.

        Aside from using wood to divine fire, wood and trees have long held deep magickal significance to the ancient Celts. In fact, the Celts venereated certain trees, and from their profound adoration of trees emerged a sigil/symbol type of alphabet known as the Ogham (pronounced Oh-am), that historians believe was used for divination, communication, record keeping and more. 

        For this year's special 3 year anniversary Sabbat Box for Beltane, we will be diving deeper into the study of what the Celts as a people practiced and held sacred. Inside this box you will discover a variety of tools that will further assist you on your path of discovering the past to aid in the present.

        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.

          • 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.

          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.

            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?🖤

            2018 Ostara Sabbat Box Theme - Elemental Magick

            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.

            Elemental Magick For Ostara

            • 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.

              • BOX SYNOPSIS •


              Imbolc Sabbat Box - Sabbat Box a Subscription Box Service for Witches, Wiccans and 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:

              • Purification Magick
              • Protection Magick
              • Transformation Magick
              • Working with the goddess Brigid

              Across the globe, different cultures honor this time with festivals that celebrate the new life that awakens where they live. In many ancient European cultures, Imbolc was a time to celebrate the goddess Brigid, who many consider the original triple goddess figure. Brigid later became a Catholic saint, with her original pagan aspects folded into Christianity. She is considered by some as the goddess of fire and light, as well as reproduction and fertility. Imbolc is said to be translated as “in the womb."

              In Ireland, feasts are held by pulling out some of the last winter stores as an offering to the earth’s promise of new seeds to be sown, and the future crops to be harvested. Many cultures in the past also considered this “lambing season,” when breeding of livestock and pregnant ewes and other animals would reproduce to add to the flock. This is also a time of weather divination, where people would look for the appearance of snakes or badgers from their dens to gauge how much longer the winter would be (and where the modern custom of Groundhog’s Day may have evolved).

              Not only is Imbolc and its time of the year a time to reawaken the life of the earth, it is also a time of purification and cleaning out old, cooped-up things in our homes and lives that we are ready to let go and improve. This time of clearing away later became to be known as “spring cleaning,” which is an annual tradition for many.

              Here at Sabbat Box we recognize and celebrate all of these different aspects of Imbolc and we have curated items for this box to honor our connection to these traditions and rites, and what they provide as a focus to our magickal practice and Path.

              This custom made ritual spray by Light of Anjou makes for a simple and convenient way to purify your altar, sacred space, linens, and more. Each spray is made with a divine herbal blend of angelica, rowan, and heather infused alcohol as well as pure essential oils. The components of this spray were carefully chosen to be included in this concoction because of their corresponding ties to both the Sabbat of Imbolc as well as their connections to Brigid.

              The Celts believed that rowan was a symbol of the hidden mysteries of nature and represented the quickening of the life force (a celebrated theme of Imbolc). Angelica and heather are said to be extremely protective, both used to ward off evil, as well as heal and purify.

              INGREDIENTS:

              • Rowan: known by many as a tree of power, it was sacred to the Celts and the Goddess Brigid. The Celts Believed that rowan was a symbol of the hidden mysteries of nature and represented the quickening of the life force.
              • Heather: A feminine herb that is believed to bring about good luck and protection
              • Angelica: Corresponding to the element of fire, angelica is a masculine herb that corresponds to healing and protection.

              • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available the Sabbat Box Store
              • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Created in Ireland using traditional materials, this handcrafted Brigid’s cross is a powerful talisman and a time-honored Celtic form of protection magick

              BREAKDOWN 
              The Celts, for whom the celebration of Imbolc stems from, believed that the “Brigid’s Cross” (a symbol sacred to the goddess Brigid) is a powerful talisman of protection, and would be hung above windows or entryways into the home in effort to keep harm or want away.

              It is originally believed that Brigid’s crosses were crafted by the Celts and hung indoors as a way to invite their life giving Goddess (Brigid) into the home during the start of spring and the planting season. It was quite the symbolic gesture during our ancestor’s time, holding various significance. In Celtic lore, Brigid was considered the “fire keeper of the flame of life” and some believe that the reeds and rushes used to make these talismans happen to represent the kindling used to keep “the life fire” lit, making this an extremely old and powerful form of sympathetic magick. The practice of crafting these ancient talismans still continues today in parts of Ireland on St. Brigid’s Day, which is celebrated on February 1st.

              Each Brigid’s Cross included in Sabbat Box was hand crafted in Ireland and made with real reeds and rushes harvested from the River Shannon, by folk artist Patricia O’Flaherty. Patricia, the founder of “Naomh Padraig,” (pronounced Nav Badrig) has been an Irish folk artist for over twenty years and uses age-old techniques and material to craft her line of traditional Irish Folk Crafts

              • WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Available at the Sabbat Box Store
              • WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: This beautiful prayer is to honor the goddess Brigid and the light she brings to the world, and can serve as an incantation or spell element for the celebration of winter’s end and spring’s return.

              BREAKDOWN
              The Wheel of the Year and the eight sabbats that it represents happens to stem primarily from the old seasonal Celtic calendar. With the sabbats’ roots deep in Celtic lore and celebration, it is easy to see why Brigid (the Celtic goddess of light, life, fertility, the forge and the hearth) became a focal point of worship for Imbolc, especially given the time of year Imbolc was celebrated by the Celts. You may incorporate the use of this prayer into your Imbolc rites or spell work as a way to connect with both the archetype of Brigid (what she represents), and to work with her as a goddess.

              Frequency Spray - Yule Sabbat Box

              COMPANY: FREQUENCY

              ABOUT THEM AND WHAT THEY SELL: Frequency (www.frequencyspray.com) is an online store that specializes in creating handcrafted, crystal infused aromatherapy products such as smudge sprays, crystal infused soaps, candles, incense, essential oils, and more! 

              Located in Largo, Florida, Frequency LLC began with a search from Heather, its founder.

              "I was looking for a full sensory aromatherapy experience. Not just an essential oil, but something more. A spray that I could use as a body spray, room spray, or an environment spray to assist with meditation. Something with crystal energy, sight, and sound. Something to aid in the journey to calm my mind, ground myself, and focus. Something magical, mystical, and full of joy and wonder… I found a few options that were close… but close wasn’t going to cut it. So I created it myself. And it was wonderful!"


              After much research, a plethora of recipe trials and errors, a lot of learning, and a whole lot of positive energy and love, Heather created the first collection. "Grounding. Peace. Clarity. Positivity."

              Combined with a desire to help others calm their minds and achieve their goals, Frequency LLC was born. Life is too short to not enjoy every single moment.

              Every time I smell my Grounding blend, it’s like I’m experiencing it for the first time. It was the first blend I ever made and it’s deep earthy wisdom holds so much emotion for me. It is still my absolute favorite with mysterious patchouli and frankincense, woodsy cedar, and the tiniest hints of rosemary and lavender. It’s sensual, sexy, and full of earth. ✨❤️✨ . . .

              2018 Imbolc Sabbat Box - At Winter's End

              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.

              Blessed Imbolc From Sabbat Box

              2018 Imbolc Sabbat Box - At Winter's End - Subscription Box for Witches Wiccans and Pagans


              • IMBOLC SABBAT BOX - AT WINTER'S END •



              The new calendar year is here, and with it brings the promise of new life and new beginnings. We watch as the earth begins to awaken, her fertile soil ready to welcome the rise of her Sun Lord. We eagerly await the newness of life to come forth as the winter cold starts to wane. The earth comes awake: the air begins to sweeten, the earliest flower buds start to appear, even through the snow. The sun gives new life and new energy to all living things. The ice and snow begins to melt, water flowing through the forest, a promise of new life ready to emerge.

              Brigid's Cross For Imbolc - Sabbat BoxAcross the globe, different cultures honor this time with festivals that celebrate the new life that awakens where they live. In many ancient European cultures, Imbolc was the celebration of the goddess Brigid, who many consider the original goddess figure. Brigid later became a Catholic saint, the original pagan aspects folded into Christianity. She is considered by some as the goddess of fire and light, as well as reproduction and fertility...Imbolc is said to be translated as “in the womb”.

              In Ireland, feasts are held, pulling out some of the last winter stores as an offering to the earth’s promise of new seeds to be sown and future crops to be harvested. Many cultures in the past also considered this “lambing season”, when breeding of livestock and pregnant ewes and other animals would reproduce to add to the flock. This is also a time of weather divination, where people would look for the appearance of snakes or badgers from their dens to gauge how much longer the winter would be (and where the modern custom of Groundhog’s Day may have evolved).

              Not only is Imbolc and its time of the year a time to reawaken the life of the earth, it is also a time of purification and cleaning out old, cooped-up things in our homes and lives that we are ready to let go and improve. This time of clearing away later became to be known as the annual tradition of “spring cleaning”.

              Here at Sabbat Box we recognize and celebrate all of these different aspects of Imbolc. We are curating items to honor our connection to these traditions and rites and who they provide focus to of our magickal practice and Path. Much like early spring fruits and vegetables, we are collecting a group of items that will serve to help awaken all of your senses and help you to honor this amazing point in the Wheel of the Year.
