Let’s Have Som e Fun – 10 Winter Crafts for Wiccans

With the cold weather bringing everyone indoors, and the upcoming Yule holiday, making crafts and gifts indoors is a cozy, soul-nourishing activity.

Here’s some ideas for creating with the heart and spirit in mind.

For fall project ideas, check out this article, 11 Fall Projects for the Crafty Witch.

For spring project ideas, take a look at 10 Spring Projects for Wiccans.

1.  Quilting.  We hear an awful lot about “focus” in the context of spell work.  Sewing makes for a powerful way to draw your intentions into sharp concentration.  Try hand sewing a quilted sachet using a steady chant with every stitch to bring the mind into a lovely, trance like state of calm.

2.  Candle making.  Nothing warms the heart and soul like burning fresh, homemade candles.  Pick a purpose.  Then toss in herbs, anchor the wick with a special gemstone, rub it with oil and/or carve whatever you want into them.

3.  Create an incense blend.  Every witch should learn the art of blending herbs into pleasing, aromatic scents.  Winter makes the perfect season for experimenting with dried herbs (preferably from your own fall garden harvest!).  Test your blend by tossing a handful into your burning fireplace to warm and bless the home.

4.  Make your own rune set.  With the natural light in retreat and the long nighttime hours, divination makes for a lovely indoor evening activity.  Make your own rune set—-and be creative!  Carve the runes into polymer clay, wood or paint small stones.  Makes a charming gift for a like-minded friend.

5.  Crock pot something.  A crock pot makes a perfect cauldron in the winter months.  Stew something kitchen-witch style or …

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions after 11 PM EDT today (8 PM to 11:30 PM PDT). The Moon is in Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you have an excellent balance between head and heart. This means you can balance your emotional needs with your obligations and sense of duty. Someone older, wiser or more experienced might have excellent advice for you. (Never hurts to listen.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Listen to bosses, parents and VIPs today, especially if it applies to research, you might be doing or anything that you are working on privately or behind the scenes. Their input could be valuable for you. Why not stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is an excellent day to think about your goals and how you can bring your hopes and dreams for the future into your reality. Start small with baby steps. Deal with what is possible right now. Explore future travel possibilities as well as education and training. It’s a start.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

People notice you today. Fear not because you look great in the eyes of others especially bosses, parents and VIPs. This is why someone might help you in a practical sense or give you valuable advice, especially regarding financial matters or something to do with shared property or banking.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is an excellent day to study because your mind is focused and you are patient. You will be able to channel this same productive focus into making travel plans or dealing with publishing, the media, medicine and the law. A productive day!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Roll up your sleeves and tackle red-tape issues that you might have been avoiding because today you have the focus, patience and concentration to deal with these tasks. This includes matters related to shared property, taxes, debt and insurance issues.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Someone close to you, perhaps a partner or friend, might share some wisdom with you today. Or perhaps they will give you advice? Don’t take offense because very likely, their advice will be practical and helpful. In fact, today you will prefer the company of serious people. (No flakes allowed.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a productive day for you because you are focused and persevering. This is why you will do careful work and pay attention to detail today. It’s also why you won’t make mistakes or need to do things over again. Be like the wise carpenter, “Measure twice, cut once.”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your ability to teach children or younger people is top-notch today. For starters, you have the patience necessary to do this. You will find it easy to be calm and understanding. Possibly, the flipside will occur and you are the younger person receiving advice from someone older.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Family discussions will be cooperative and productive today. (You don’t feel particularly social; in fact, you’re happy to be alone with your thoughts and feelings today.) However, you will welcome the advice of someone older or wiser who has a point of view that you respect. You’re ready to listen.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a good day to study and learn something new because you have the patience and forbearance for this kind of task. You won’t overlook details. You’ll be careful in everything you do. Discussions with others will be calm, serious and focused on practical matters.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You will be thrifty and careful with your money today, which is why if you are shopping, you will most likely shop for long lasting, practical items. You might also see ways to cut costs and save money in certain areas. (Impressive.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor John Wayne (1907-1979) shares your birthday today. You are a dedicated, hard worker with focus. You’re observant and insightful about others. Although you appear lighthearted, you are philosophical and serious. This is the first year of a nine-year cycle for you. It’s time to explore new opportunities and discover new paths. Be courageous, flexible and ready to open doors!

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious, you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else was born.

From Moongiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Visit the May 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

(This is the last rune from this set)

Sound: “ea” as in “dear”
Stands for: Soil of Earth (actually the dust our bodies become after death)
Casting meaning: Ear symbolizes the grave that we will all return to. However the only way that we can die is because there was life to begin with. “Without life, there is no death and without time there is no life.” More generally Ear signifies the unavoidable end of all things.

Ruis

Regret, pride, shame, embarrassment, learning from experience, resolution

Tree: Elder (Sambucus spp.)

Letter: R

Shame isn’t all bad and does not deserve a uniformly awful reputation. Without shame and the fear of being shamed, every human child would be demonically bratty. Shame is a limit that informs us to keep our own ego in check. It is often about considering others. Having shame about one’s own past behavior is motivation to avoid shameful behaviors such as cheating and stealing.

Shame is an emotion that demands confrontation. All too often, people run away from what shames them, attempt to excuse themselves from wrongful or immoral behavior because they’re too cowardly to face what they have done or to admit their responsibility in causing their own misfortunes or the misfortune of others. Ruis indicates a willingness to face one’s own shame and to do with shame what it was meant for, and that is to use shame of the past to build oneself into a better person for the present and future. Ashamed of something you did? How can you make yourself into the type of person who would never even think of doing something like that? Overcome being the type of person who would engage in the shameful behavior and you become the master of it; you won’t have the remotest chance of repeating such a mistake. Did you become embarrassed because you did something you now understand to be greedy? Then learn to balance thriftiness with generosity. Adjust to the circumstance rather than overreacting to it. Are you ashamed about cheating on a boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse? Become a person who would never cheat on your boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse regardless of conditions, which could mean an assortment of outcomes: sticking to a resolution of no cheating and staying together, admitting one’s sexual preferences and going with the flow, changing the person you are with, or being single for a long time.

Because humans tend to remember negative experiences more easily than positive ones, it’s important when you draw Ruis to acknowledge the things you are not ashamed of about yourself. For every bad or shameful thing you’ve done, remember there are a thousand shameful things you avoided. Maybe it is time to appreciate the places you could have gone horribly wrong and did not.

Questions when you draw Ruis: …
