Many of us have gardens and will need to finish harvesting the vegetables soon. I know here we are starting to bring herbs in to dry and prepare for winter use. Our basil is starting to go to seed so it is coming in this week. We also are watching our sunflowers to make seeds that we can use next year.
The reason that I wanted to talk to you about this early this year is because I have a project for you! It's a bit of a simple one but one that will bring you joy during the winter months. We are going to create a Harvest Moon/ Equinox box.
Grab any box you wish, it can be a shipping box, a shoebox whatever size you find appropriate. In that box I want you to start collecting things over the next week as we move towards the Full Moon and Mabon. In that box I want you to start collecting things for you to have during the winter or on a day that you really could use a pick me up. So for instance in my box I would have some herbs for teas, honey, seeds to plant seedlings, maybe a special book and anything else I can think of in the next week or so that I think would really lift my spirits in February.
Do the same over the several days as we move towards the Full Moon. Set aside as many things as you want. This is your special care box. On the night of the Full Harvest Moon leave this box somewhere that it is safe and can get Moonlight like a windowsill inside that your kitties don't have access to. Seal the box up the next morning and tuck it somewhere safe where you will remember it when you need it.
Have a magickal day!
Much Love and Many Blessings,
