For All Our Friends Up North, Snow Magick!

Snow Magick

When winter rolls around, in some parts of the world there is an abundance of wonderful white stuff – snow! If you live in one of those areas, it makes sense to take advantage of snow’s natural properties and work those energies into your magical endeavors. Think about, for starters, some of snow’s physical characteristics. The most obvious one is that it’s cold. It’s also white. Sometimes it’s light and powdery, other times it may be heavy and wet. How can you incorporate these into your magical workings?

If you’re a fan of candles, make ice candles – they’re are a lot of fun and easy to make during the winter months. .

Build a snowman as a very large magickal poppet. Assign a snowman the magical task of being a guardian at the entrance to your property.

Got a bad habit you need to get rid of? Form that bad habit into snowballs, and throw them as far away from you as you can.

Snow quartz crystals are often associated with fulfillment of hopes and dreams. Use actual snow instead of crystals in workings related to wishes and goals.

If someone is bothering you and won’t leave you alone, try this simple bit of magic. Write their name on a slip of paper, and pack it in snow in a zip-loc bag. Place the bag in your freezer, and leave it there until the person “chills out.”

Go for a walk in the woods on a day that it’s snowing. Enjoy the silence, and the magic of the snowfall – some people report that they have experienced messages from the Divine as they walk on a snowy day. Perhaps it’s because we’re better able to hear the gods when it’s quiet!

Frosty the Snowman

by Steve Nelson, Jack Rollins  

 

Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the Snowman was a fairy tale, they say
He was made of snow, but the children know
How he came to life one day

There must have been some magic
In that old top hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around!

Frosty the Snowman was alive as he could be
And the children say he could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me

He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when
He heard her holler, “Stop!”

Frosty the Snowman had to hurry on his way
But he said goodbye, saying
“Don’t you cry, I’ll be back again some day!”
