This is a more discreet version of the other Acorn Spell. Charge three acorns under the New Moon. Wrap them together using stands of your hair and carry them in a charm bag.
Three acorns especially if they’re found attached to one another, preserve youth and enhance beauty. A gold or silver charm depicting thee acorns will work, too. Charge the three acorns under the New Moon and wear them in your hair.
The rune today is Ehwaz of Tyr’s Aett pronounced “ay-wawz” or Ehwo “ay-woh” (E: A horse, two horses) Transportation. May represent a horse, car, plane, boat or other vehicle. Movement and change for the better. Gradual development and steady progress are indicated. Harmony, teamwork, trust, loyalty. An ideal marriage or partnership. Confirmation beyond doubt the meanings of the runes around it.
The Horse slowly moves her load. She doesn’t hurry, the road is long. Movement. Gradual but steady change. Your new life-style may look like a long road. It may be connected with real travel or with a change of job or house. Success won’t come quickly, so don’t hurry. It will arise naturally as a result of steady progress. The horse can carry a load and this means taking on board a duty or burden involving service to others, but this will bring you personal success.
Ehwaz Reversed or Merkstave: This is not really a negative rune. A change is perhaps craved. Feeling restless or confined in a situation. Reckless haste, disharmony, mistrust, betrayal. (Note: the reversed or merkstave definitions are included only for reference as they apply to a multi-rune cast and not to a single rune that’s drawn blind from the pouch)
As with all, take only what feels right to you and disregard the rest.

Daily Goddess Devotion
Spring. Morning dawns as the sun glistens on the frost covered limbs sparkling like diamonds in the sun. Beneath the warming soil there is a quickening as seed and bulb shutter to break the earth of new life. I give blessing unto the Goddess as my spirit is renewed and I am again awakened unto all the possibilities before me.
Blessed Ostara Everyone
