Lady Beltane is on Medical Leave

Greetings Sisters, Brothers, and Guests,

It is with a heavy heart that I have to consider my health first. I am NOT a confirmed case of COVID-19 but I am symptomatic. My doctor and I are keeping a close watch on my breathing. But it is more likely a mixture of a common cold or flu virus coupled with lousy allergies and a fibromyalgia flare hitting me all as once. To be on the safe side for my husband, we started sleeping separately a couple of weeks ago, I am self isolating in my den/altar room. The Elders of Coven Life and WOTC will be taking over at least 98% of my duties so I feel better to lead the full Moon Esbat gathering on April 5th. So posts may look different.

Everything with Coven Life’s School of Witchcraft will continue as normal.

I will answer emails when I feel up to it during my time off.

Until we meet again blessings of health for and for those you care about,

Lady Beltane

Celery

A Poem

By Ogden Nash

Celery, raw
Develops the jaw,
But celery, stewed,
Is more quietly chewed.

The above poem is an understated description of the true talents of celery.

It’s an herbaceous plant from the parsley family that actually has a parsley like aroma with a pleasingly bitter taste.

Grow

Home grow celery is crispy, juicy and absolutely delicious!

You can grow celery from seed in soil that has a high level of moisture therefore you need to water frequently. This plant grows throughout winter and summer.

Eat

It is wonderful and juicy when fresh. You can have with chicken, pork, lamb, blue cheese, apples, nuts, cabbage, tomatoes, onions, potatoes and even rice, its just one of those great all-rounders.

Try

Add chopped celery leaf to potatoes or bean salads. Mix with tuna and mayonnaise for a sandwich filling. Cook…

Faith- Sacred Sites

Today I wanted to just speak about faith. The world is undergoing a cleansing and I hope this wakes everybody up. I do feel that the destroying of Mother Earth is a main reason why this is happening. For example, here in Arizona we are fighting to protect Oak Flat. It’s a very sacred place especially for the Apache People. The mines are trying to take it and destroy it by mining.

Oak Flat is a very sacred place that will be destroyed if we cant stop it. The Apache people are trying to stop it but we are waiting to find out.

Keep your faith with whats happening in this world. The virus, the destroying of Sacred Sites, and harming Mother Earth. I know it will be hard but pray and know that the Creator is with you.

Here is the link about Oak Flat if you are interested. I am helping to fight this. http://apache-stronghold.com/

Marshmallow Root

This plant has been used as food and medicine in Africa for more than 2000 years.

The Greek physician Hippocrates valued it as a wound treatment because if it’s anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Grow

Slow growing plant that is to be sown in autumn, place in trays under a glass, simply recreate a small greenhouse. In spring they should be large enough to plant leaving 45cm between them.

Marshmallow flowers in its second year and develops roots a few years before it is harvested. With the flowers you could make flower essence, a beautiful energy medicine.

I will at some stage write up some basic information for how to make your own flower essence.

In Roman time it was used to stuff sucking pigs. In the meantime if one is not at hand (lol) you could simply boil the…

A Very Happy and Blessed Ostara or Mabon

Well, I just learned something new about the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere and the fall equinox in the southern hemisphere. Ostara the spring equinox is on Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 10:49 PM PM CT while Mabon the fall equinox is on Friday, March 20, 2020 at 2:49 PM AEDT in the southern hemisphere. Which means we are experiencing the equinoxes at the exact same time just in different time zones and because of the international date line on a different date.

When I read this I felt it covered more than just a blessing for Ostara and Mabon. I felt it was a blessing to carry with us all through the year.

Northern Brothers and Sisters: May what you sow this spring come to a bountiful harvest in the fall.

Southern Brothers and Sisters: May what you sowed in the spring be bring you a bountiful harvest this fall.

Remember we can sow different things for our own reasons they do not have to be something we plant in the ground and watch grow, they can be something we change in our lifestyle or in our spiritual or magickal path. Then when we harvest them they become part of us and who we are.

The Spring Equinox & Ostara

Coven Life®

Ostara is a modern Neopagan festival. It is loosely based on several holidays which were celebrated around the spring equinox. The modern holiday does not have a strong relation to any known historical Pagan religious observation.

In the northern hemisphere, the end of March is the focus for a number of religious and traditional celebrations. As the sun appears to cross the earth’s equator on the 20th or 21st of March, entering the Zodiacal sign of Aries, day and night will be equal in length. This astronomical phenomenon is a day anciently revered amongst Pagan peoples. Their festivals included Alban Elfed, the Teutonic festival in honour of Eostre, Roman Hilaria Matris Deûm, Welsh Gwyl Canol Gwenwynol (‘Day of the Gorse’), the Christian Feast of the Annunciantion of the Virgin Mary (Lady Day) as well as Easter itself. The Wiccan Eostar (Ostara) Sabbat (one of the four lesser Wiccan holidays or…

March 18 Birthday Horoscope

People Born On March 18: Zodiac Sign Is Pisces

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS March 18, then your zodiac sign is Pisces. You, Pisces, are unafraid to take risks in order to rise above your current situation.

If today March 18th is your birthday, you can be misunderstood. Some behavior patterns may suddenly change therefore giving people the impression that you are foolish or even out of control.

These urges come from your awareness of your psychic abilities. It is as if something is pulling you in one direction and people just do not get it.

Pisceans with zodiac birthday March 18have a great need to be stimulated and look for spontaneity in the bedroom, laundry room, or kitchen. Your sex drive is definitely strong and it tends to dominate the nature of the relationship. This can sometimes interfere with your romantic relationships.

Your birthday personality trait shows that you love competition. More likely than not, you are rewarding yourself for a job well done. You feel you are superior because of spiritual connection and ability to see the bigger picture.

People turn to you for advice, and then they tell their friends about what you said. You would do well in politics, Pisces.

You who are born on this day 18th Marchfocus on bringing techniques that are more modern to the game plan. With hard work and devotion, you usually bring home the bacon and the cheese.

However, Pisces, you do too much trying to ensure financial stability. Sometimes, it is best to take things slow and easy rather than just jump right into a situation. This is an important aspect of your life and needs to be done with practicality and direction.

With a realistic outlook on the future, your significant other will appreciate your efforts and steady progress to build a brighter tomorrow. You know how to put your life in order through investments and a safe retirement account.

Your love match is certainly a lucky person predicts the March 18 birthday astrology analysis. A Piscean will need someone who can benefit from shared experiences. The perfect partner is someone who makes you feel safe and gives you motivation to push ahead.

You of all people, Pisces, understand what it means to be an adult that has to come to terms with the past. In order to know the value of being a parent, you need to let go of old influences that perhaps did not shed a very good light on parenthood. You believe “it takes a village to raise one child.”

When you have the ability to educate the little minds into a more positive and diverse way of thinking, you will have an independent thinking adult.

If today March 18 is your birthday, you release a lot of energy through sexual marathons but in addition, work out as a part of a routine. You tend to watch your weight but normally can eat what you want.

As your birthday meaning says, you are competitive and Pisces zodiac sign can be found at the basketball court or racquetball court. It is whatever… as long as you are active, you are in good shape. Go ahead and give yourself a high five!

The March 18 birthday horoscope shows that you get excited when it comes to new and undiscovered grounds. You have a strong work moral code with a determination, unlike any other Piscean.

You are going to be successful. It is your destiny. I think it is admirable how you are willing to take a cut in pay to do what you love to do. Besides, we know it not necessarily how much you make, but what you do with it that counts. You, Pisces, can stretch a dollar bill until it breaks!

I can say this about you, Pisces. The March 18 birthday characteristics show you are unafraid to meet any challenge head-on. You are in great physical shape as you love to exercise in and out of the bedroom.

Pisceans believe in extended family values when it comes to childcare. It is everybody’s responsibility and not just one person. Sometimes, people just do not understand you, Pisces.

March 16 Birthday Horoscope

People Born On March 16: Zodiac Sign Is Pisces

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS March 16, your zodiac sign is Pisces. You like to see how things work or you want to see what happens if you did this or that. In short, you like to experiment with things. While other people are content to live within their comfort zones, you are not.

Going “where no man has gone before” should be your middle name. If your interest is peaked, you will go all in with a great passion and inquisitiveness. With most things you do, you apply that passion to what you do and to the people closest to you.

If today is your birthday, your birthday personality shows you to be very compassionate and have the attitude that allows you to understand or sympathize with most emotional experiences.

With this being the case, Pisces, you have the tendency to carry many burdens that may make you moody. You can be angry or sad; sometimes you are both. One of your positive traits is your ability to transform yourself so the mood swings usually do not last very long.

A more serious flaw that is seen in the March 16 birthday characteristics is that Pisces, you have control issues. There is no other way to say it but straightforwardly. You do not have many friends that you are close with and you like it just that way.

Pisces born on March 16, you do not find needy people to be attractive but rather, you are irritated by thought of them. You want and need your space. Pisceans are uneasy when it comes to commitments in love as well. When it comes to the other person in the relationship, you should know that you cannot control a grown person or expect them to jump at your every demand.

As your birthday horoscope predicts, maybe this is a part of your emotional baggage from your childhood. Some of you Pisceans moved around many times leaving friends and family members behind. Perhaps, this contributes to your need to control your environment and the people around you or your inability to make a commitment.

The March 16th birthday analysis suggests that you should be in business for yourself with your nonconformist attitude. Wait… do not get you feathers ruffled. Great leaders came about because they did not accept the way things were and because they wanted to change things.

Pisces sun sign have great attention to detail and can spot that penny difference when no one else can. You are good with money, my friend. Any profession relating to finances or change would best suit you as a career field.

Since your zodiac birthday personality comprises a variety of marvelous characteristics, you will need some time alone to regroup. It is crucial that you complete a period of rest and relaxation if you are to be of any use to yourself. Your well-being should be first on your “To-do” List.

Pisceans born on this day neglect their health but should learn to eat right and get the proper amount of rest. It is suggested that you use some form of meditation or even treat yourself to a good comedy show. Laughter can do wonders to relieve tension and stress.

If today March 16 is your birthday, you set standards for yourself that are above average. Your goal is to achieve personal success but you know how to handle life’s surprises and disappointments. It is just another challenge and as long as it is legal, Pisces will oblige.

Overall, as your birthday meaning suggests, 16 March Pisces, you are not the easiest person to know. You put up emotional barriers and have control issues. You do not have many close friends and that is your choice.

Pisceans born on this day enjoy their freedom but tend to ignore their health. You are notorious for experimenting but it should not be with your body. Those born on March 16 should laugh more and find the time to rejuvenate. You are best at handling financial matters as a career.

In this article I will be introducing the delicate yet highly aromatic dill.

Dill is a member of the Parsley family and not too distant relative of fennel. I often use the two interchangeably. Although it is indigenous to Asia, it is cultivated now all over the world.

Growing Dill

You can sow this seed annually in rich soil, sheltered from strong winds because of its delicate disposition. You can plant it next to cabbage or onions but NOT next to carrots as the dills root extractions can harm the carrots. Companion planting is always advisable in any garden.
