“What greater praise can I give you than to call you green? Green, rooted in light, shining like the sun that pours riches on the wheeling earth; incomprehensible green, divinely mysterious green, comforting arms of divine green protecting us in their powerful circle…”
–Hildegard of Bingen

You may wish to place one hand on your heart, one hand on your belly and hum gently to center yourself in this time and in space. Call yourself in, feeling yourself present in your body, on this earth, breathing in and out, in and out.
Our card for the week from Womanrunes was The Box, rune of boundaries. Where might you need to set firmer boundaries in your life? There are a lot of social messages to think “outside of the box,” but sometimes the Box is exactly what we need! It can show up for me almost a type of “chastisement,” but more often as a helpful reminder or reinforcement of what I already know needs to happen.
From The Goddess Guidance Oracle we received Vesta. Vesta reminds us to tend to our homespaces as expressions of our soul. Is your home nourishing your soul? Is it an outer expression of your inner experience? How about other environments, workplaces, offices, etc.? What is something you might do this week to help your home express the qualities of your soul?
This week you might wish to pick or buy flowers for your home, to add touches that give you a sense of warmth and hominess, or light candles or diffuse oils near you while you go about your household tasks.
May you be green. May you set boundaries as needed. May you tend your hearth well and wisely.
Affirmation for the week: I draw lines when needed. I create a place of beauty and express my soul.
And, now, dear Circle, the rattle passes to you….
