Q I feel so listless at this time of year. Is there earth magic that can stir up my energy?
SALLY WHITTAKER, HORNCASTLE, LINCOLNSHIRE
THIS FEELING is very common at this time of year for those of us who live in the northern hemisphere. Not only do we miss the long daylight hours, but the weather can be so dull and dreary. To restore your inner sun, do some spell work on the evening of November 23rd, the day of the full moon. Just as the moon’s disc reflects sunlight, you will become illuminated by drawing on fire energy.
Light a red candle to represent fire and sit in front of it. Close your eyes and imagine that your skin is absorbing its light and it is travelling to your core. Just below your sternum, a power point connected with solar power, will become activated and enlivened. Envisage it growing brighter until it illuminates your whole body. Repeat this exercise whenever you need some energy to get you through the winter.
