The Magick of Chamomile

The Magick of Chamomile

 I was so excited this Spring when I had a ton of volunteer chamomile plants come up all along the side of my herb garden.  Many of you know that my favorite flower is the daisy so it only would make sense that I also love the little flowers that look quite similar to daisies on my chamomile.  I call them volunteer plants as I didn't plant them where they are they just sort of showed up. With the chamomile it is likely from the chamomile that I had in my herb garden last year that went to seed.  Each Spring we look for our "volunteer plants" around our home and are excited when we find so many different surprises.  Last year some of you may remember that I was excited to find sunflowers popping up in various places.

Chamomile is an annual plant that is native to Southern and Eastern Europe although you will find it's quite common in other areas of the world as well.   I know it's doing quite well here in New England.  I have to laugh, it's had the toughest time every other year, the one year I don't plant it I have to tie it up as it's already a good two feet in height.  Chamomile can get to be about 2 feet in height at which point you will often need to give it some help to stay upright.  Did you know you can use Chamomile to help against pests in the vegetable garden?  I think I am going to try to take some of this years plants at the end of the season and place them around the garden perimeter to see if it helps next year.  The flowers it makes will be beautiful around the garden as well.

Many of you have likely heard of chamomile tea right? I can tell you the flowers from fresh chamomile make an amazing tea. It's an incredibly soothing and relaxing tea especially when paired with lavender.  It is amazing at assisting with anxiety or tension and even can help with depression.Chamomile has an incredibly long history of use for digestive issues. It is believe that it can relax the muscles of the digestive tract.

The bright sunny centers of chamomile are where it gets it's association with the sun.   Ancient Egyptians attributed Chamomile to their Sun God Ra.  Chamomile can help to cleanse your throat chakra.  Chamomile is wonderful in spell work regarding love, peace and tranquility, and purification.

Have a magickal day!

Much Love and Many  Blessings,

Today's Oracle Card

Nut ~ Mystery:

“Reach for me

touch me

I am always beyond your grasp

Don’t try to figure me out

for you can’t

I am the ever-present unfathomable unknown

I am the immensity of the star filled sky

I am beyond human comprehension

In the vastness of my being

I am a mystery

even to myself”

Mythology: “Nut (pronounced noot) is the Egyptian Goddess of the night sky, also known as the Great Deep, the Celestial Vault, who daily gives birth to the sun each morning, then consumes it again each night. Disapproving of the incest of Nut as she lay over her brother Geb, the Earth, Ra, the sun or high God, had them pried apart. Nut was then lifted into the sky where she remains, her body formed into an arch. Painted inside the inner lid of a sarcophagus, she mothers and protects the dead on their journey.

Nut’s twinkling vast dark vault stretches out in your life to remind you to open up to the mystery. Have you been planning every aspect of your life and left no room for mystery? Is your life wound up too tight? Are you trying to make everything safe by defining it, labeling it, knowing it all? Give way to the mystery, the unknowable. The Wise Woman knows there is much in the universe that will remain a mystery and leaves space for it in the weaving of her life. Nut says the way to nurture wholeness is for you to trust that the mystery you let in will be exactly what you need for your journey to wholeness.

Sometimes when things are challenging or difficult it may be because you are going against the grain.  Try to really go with the flow today and see where your path leads you.  If you have been working really hard to obtain something see if there are signs on your path today to let you know that the universe is working to help you achieve what you want.  

Let go today and see where the path takes you.  Enjoy the world that surrounds you and pay attention to all the little things.

The Magickal Daisy

For as long as I can remember the Daisy has been my favorite flower. Something about the simplicity of it and just pure and simple colors always lifts my spirits. I've spent a lot of happy days collecting them with my little ones up in the mountains to bring home and put in a vase in our kitchen. They are finally blooming where I live.

The other day we were out for a walk at my favorite reservoir. I was excited to see them starting to bloom on the side of the road. When I came around the corner I was so happy to see them lining the entire path!

As you can see in the picture it was a bit overcast that day so their bright and cheery presence was like a bit of sunshine for me.

How many of you know who Freya is? Freya is the Norse Goddess of Love, Sex, Beauty, Fertility, War and Death. I bet many of you have heard of her and her stories in Norse Mythology. The Daisy is her sacred flower. As such you will find that Daisies are often associated with Love and new beginnings. You will often find that people give Daisies to New Mothers to celebrate the new love in their life.

Daisies are perfect to offer the Goddess at Beltane and at the Summer Solstice. Their cheerful colors will bring good luck and happiness to you and into your home when you work with them. See if you can find ways to incorporate them into your life. We are working on getting them to grow in our yard as I adore them.

Have you ever seen the Daisy Rings being worn as crowns at Beltane or the Summer Solstice? In Medieval days the Knights use to wear Daisies and the ladies would wear crowns of them on their head. This may have contributed to why you see them worn today.

The word daisy comes from "days eye." The petals look like long lashes on a beautiful eye that opens to greet each day. They will bring you positive energy and peace to your days.

Have a magickal day!

Balancing Your Life With The Elements

**original art by nanuowns**

Being Wiccan we work a lot with the Elements. Have you ever given any thought to how the elements correspond to your life? Let's take a look.

Earth - The Earth element corresponds to those areas of your life that have to do with your foundation and financial security. So in this category would be the place that you choose to call home. The things that you have in that home that make it a home to you. It would also include your primary source of income. Just as the Earth is beneath your feet, the Earth element is all about building the foundation for your life.

Water - The Water element corresponds to the emotional part of our life. All of your relationships and the time you spend with your friends and family fall under this category. Water also includes making sure that you take care of yourself as that's part of keeping our emotions balanced. So you also need to consider things like getting enough rest, taking time for meditation, drinking enough water and other things that help you stay emotionally sound and grounded. Also included under is any self-healing that you are doing.

Air - The Element Air corresponds to wisdom. So in this category you will find things that involve learning. As Wiccans one of our goals is to keep learning in life. This doesn't mean that you have to go out and take formal classes, you can learn things by reading, going out and exploring, and talking to people. This area can also include anything that helps us to learn. Think of things like reading and writing skills. If we can read better than we can learn better. This would also include making sure you are well rested and nourished so that you can absorb information.

Fire - So what are you passionate about? The fire element includes anything that you are passionate about doing. Fire is what fuels you in life, that is the easiest way I can think of to describe this. At the heart of this element is your true self.

So now that you know a bit about the elements let's do a quick activity.

Grab 4 sheets of paper.

Write the name of each element, one per sheet, on the top of each page.

Under the name, write all those things in your life that you believe fit in that category.

Look at the lists and see if there are areas in your life that you can improve upon. Draw a line on the sheet and write those down as well.

Choose goals that you can work on to improve these areas of your life.

Have a magickal day!!

Much Love and Many Blessings,
