Winter Cleaning the Occult Way
Today is a 2 day. This blog is being written in the hour of Mars. A good time to get things done is on the day of Saturn. Saturn brings long term habits. Saturn brings lessons. So this is why Saturday is a good day to get organized. So, with all of this these energies around the winter period it should be a no brainier that we get things cleaned up. Your resting period is just as important as your growing period. In fact, the resting period is when the good soil and roots are cultivated to prepare for the conditions of creation, growth, birth, and development. Don't go into your winter period without ensuring things are as tidy as you can get them. You don't want anything corrupting the vitality of the soil you will be cultivating for spring planting and cleaning.
Today we are going to discuss the winter cleaning. Now why did I call it the occult way, because there are many different ways to explore the world of secrets? One does not have to be a witch to be an occultist. I digress. Winter time is the 4th temporal mode of time. This is the time where everything goes dormant or dies. This is why there are certain rituals that should not be performed during this time. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule however these should be left to the spiritually cultivated occultist. One thing thought when the spring comes around everyone is happy to clean. Winter cleaning gets little to no attention.
Winter is the much needed rest on things to spring back into life. Winter is the night of rest. Therefore one should also have a winter cleaning ritual just as they do in the spring. Why would you want to go into your resting period with all kinds of shit everywhere? This is neither helpful nor organized. You want to ensure your rest is well so when spring time comes you can manifest fruit for the harvest. When the new moon comes it will be at the end of fall which means we will entering the winter in a growing moon phase in the sign of Sagittarius.
Now we know that is a fire sign and with the moon growing we will be essentially attracting to us for the entire winter what we are setting intentions for in the new moon. Sagittarius is movement. It cannot be still. It must travel it must move. It must be free. The moon in this placement needs wisdom and truth. This position of the moon is telling us that we will be learning some abstract things, be them spiritual, religious, or philosophical. This is important to remember when doing your new moon rituals. This is also good information to have when you are preparing your home for winter. You know that you are cleaning for a restful period of developing abstract or occult knowledge. So this would be a good time to clean and reflect on those things you want to know but never ask anybody. This is a good time to take that book that you've wanted to read but has been buried under all those papers out, and sit it where it can be seen. For the universe is letting you know that it is time to learn new things in a new way.
The new moon will happen in on a Sunday. This is very interesting because when the moon is new, it is also on the same side as the sun. This is interesting because we are looking at the harmonious blending on the light and dark to bring forth cultivation energy for creation. I love how the universe works. In addition to this that day will be a 3 day. This means it will be a happy and cheerful day. Another interesting aspect of this day is that the moon will be right next to Saturn as it gets ready to change signs. Saturn is moving into its home constellation of Capricorn.
Oh boy oh boy there are about to be some things going on for the next to 2 and a half years as it pertains to Saturn energy. This change will happen the day before winter comes in. How amazing is that? Energy does not lie and if we are paying attention we can see how all things are connected. The first day of winter the moon will be waxing at 3 days. Emotionally everyone should be very happy and cheerful. This waxing moon will also be in the sign of Capricorn. This winter period will be bringing you new abstract lessons in the way of learning wisdom and truth.
This winter period will be helping you learn the lessons and set up the habits to bring you this truth and wisdom. So, with all of these energies around the winter beginning, it should be a no brainier that we get things cleaned up. Your resting period is just as important as your growing period. In fact, the resting period is when the good soil and roots are cultivated to prepare for the conditions of creation, growth, birth, and development. Don't go into your winter period without ensuring things are as tidy as you can get them. You don't want anything corrupting the vitality of the soil you will be cultivating for spring planting and cleaning.
