Beware the Ides of March!
Except the Ides mean, according to Roman calendars, the middle of the month as marked by the Full Moon.
Adventure Wicca, coordinators of Facebook event Protect the Earth, have jumped on this idea.
Tonight, at dinner, after the meal blessing, we did a special blessing for Mother Earth. We thanked her for the soil in which our food grows, for the land on which our animals are raised, for the waters within her which we drink. Witchlette channeled the prophet Sagan and thanked her for being the planet we live on and our home.
We thanked the Earth and wished her good will and protection, today and every day.
After enjoying our meal, upon blowing out our special candle, I led a meditation in which we envisioned the earth as a whole as one would from space.
Close your eyes.
See the earth.
See the green land, blue seas, white clouds. See it all together.
Envision a glowing green light encircling the earth. This is our protection. This is our love. May she be safe from harm today and every day.
So mote it be.
We then extinguished the candle.
