Grounding During Eclipse Season: A Witch’s Journey into Garden Magic

By Tatiara

In the midst of eclipse season’s turbulence, I find myself drawn deeper into the dance of celestial energies. It’s a time of upheaval and change. It urges me to seek solace and grounding within the chaos. In these times of uncertainty, I turn to the nurturing sanctuary of my garden, where the wisdom of Gaia and the magic of herbs offer solace, balance, and a re-attunement to nature’s cycles.

As I attune to the subtle shifts in energy of eclipse season, I am reminded of our interconnectedness with the All. These shifts stir the depths of my soul and beckon me to explore the mysteries. Amidst the ebb and flow of celestial currents, I find refuge in the simple act of tending to my garden.

I commune with the spirits of the land, offering gratitude for their guidance and protection. The herbs I cultivate become my allies in this journey, their fragrant leaves and vibrant colors a testament to the magic they hold. From the calming embrace of lavender to the mystic vibration of mugwort, each herb carries a unique energy, offering its own healing and transformative power.

In the quiet now-ness of the garden, I find solace amidst the chaos, and ground myself in the earth’s ever-shifting cycles – the ground of being that connects me with my own inner magic. Barefoot, I plant the seeds of intention and nurture them with care. I witness the timeless alchemy of growth and renewal as it unfolds. Just as the eclipse heralds a new chapter, so, too, do I “eclipse out” what no longer serves and “eclipse in” new vitality and visions.

Eclipse season is a time of heightened sensitivity when the boundaries between the seen and unseen blur. In the garden, I harness potent energies, weaving spells of rejuvenation with each intention.

As I journey into this mysterious frequency, I am reminded of the resilience and strength within. Through the nurturing of herbs and plants, I find sanctuary, a reawakening to the magic that flows through us all. In the dance of eclipse season, I rediscover the essence of my being – a witch, a steward of the earth, and a vessel for divine magic.
