Colors- bright or dark, deep or light, regardless of whether it's a royal blue or a brilliant yellow, color affects us.

It's a proven fact that colors have an affect on our intellect, and they invoke different emotional responses. Colors used in magick are similar in that they evoke a response, but keep in mind, response to color in an individual matter, so go with your instincts. The colors must have meaning to you.

12/04: Smudging Prayer

This was posted to facebook by Ravengrove Coven. I decided to keep it here, where I can find it.

30/03: Herne dream

I'm in class at Brown-Mackie and the class is over and I'm looking through bags of stuff that have been left behind, and in these bags there are some deer hides, which I'm overjoyed to find. In one of the bags, the hide turns out to be a live young deer. I get a rope around its neck and lead it out and down the stairs to a semi-wild area near the river (outside the college is similar to the area around BSU). I leave the deer there and try to run back, but it follows me.
My dogs, Athena and Pepper (in this dream, Pepper is still a puppy), are being kept in another room of the school and I decide to take them for a walk. The deer follows us. It is very large now and I think it had antlers. I meet some people and tell them about the deer, and the guy says "well, it must have been shot at some time."
I'm thinking about crossing the bridge over the river, but I'm worried that the deer will run out into traffic and get hit.
When I wake up, I realize that this is probably a dream about Herne the Hunter, for whom I chose my last name. He's been hunted and reborn and is following me, and I can't shake him.
Today I realized on the long bus ride to school how much my morning commute makes me aware of the changes in the seasons. Not long ago, it was daylight when I left the house at 6:45. Then it began to get darker at that time in the morning. The change was most noticeable on Mondays, after three days of not going out that early. Even then, it was light by the time I got to the transfer point. Not long after, it was getting dark at the transfer point , but the sun was up just before I got off the bus at Brown-Mackie.
Today, close to the solstice, it was pitch dark at the transfer point, but the sun's almost up at Brown-Mackie.
Sure this may be seen as trite, and I'm sure people that drive have a similar experience, but being on the bus for over an hour has given me time to meditate on the gradual changes without having to focus on such mundane things as not getting in an accident while driving in the dark.
The wheel of the year is an important part of my religion and my world view. Having this chance to focus on the wheel of the year is an unexpected benefit of riding the bus to school three times a week.
