A Prayer for Survival of Mercury Retrograde

Goddess, give me the strength and energy to survive

This Mercury Retrograde

Give me the patience of water wearing at a rock

The quick relentless energy of the red squirrel

The stick- to-it-veness of a lichen

The intelligence of the blue whale

The ability to rise from the mud of a lotus

The impassiveness when dealing with rude, stupid people of a redwood

The strength of an oak tree

The force when necessary of an octopus

And the ability to adapt of a chameleon.

Give me peace

Give me grace

Give me calmness in the face of exaggerated crisis mode

On the part of others

Let me be grounded

Let me be flexible

Let me have the ability to let things pass around me

And on to somewhere else

Goddess help me.

I remember this day for my people. Blood of my blood

May the dead lie peacefully here
May they know their lines carried on all over the world
May they know we remember them
May they know we still bear their names
May they know that through us they still live
May they know we remember their bravery
in the face of a well fed and well armed army
when you were hungry and armed with little more than swords
against cannons.
May they know we remember the sometimes foolish seeming cause
May they remember
May we remember
May we remember
May we remember

I remember the Stewarts of Appin
I remember the MacGregors
I remember the Livingstons
I remember the Robertsons
I remember my dead.

A spring morning prayer

Lady, I see the beauties of this spring day

And ask that these blessings surround me this dat

The shining glow of our white roses

The dawn song of the phoebe

the whirr of the mourning dove’s wings

The pink of the rose echoing the colours of dawn

The furious chatter of the bushtits in the trees

The flick of the kitty’s tail as she flees

The early green shine of the new plants in the fields

The sleepy peep of baby birds

The chilly caress of the morning breeze

May they be with me through this day

And may they be there in the twilight hours

And in the dark of night.

Brighid watch over us

May your flame light our way

Through the night

Through the storms

Through our tears

May your waters sooth and heal

Heal our hearts,

Heal our bodies,

Heal our minds.

May your forge make us strong

Strong enough to fight what needs to be fought

Strong enough to accept what can’t be

Strong enough to stand under the burdens we accept

Brighid, we burn your flame

We drink from your well

We are strong when we are weak because we have your blessing

We drink from your well to be healed

We walk in the mist following your footsteps.

We carry your flame with us and give to all who need it.

Brighid, we are your flames in the world.

Prayer for spring blessings

I see the signs of the approach of spring

And I ask its protection through the day

From red sky of this morning

Through the warm day and the coming of soft night

Until the morning’s return

I ask protection from

The song of the mockingbird

The laugh of the raven

The peeping of the returned bushtits

From the bridal veiling of the flowering pear trees

And the snowy white drifting of falling petals

From the sight of the new budding on the sycamores

And the sweet scent of the blooming osmanthus

From the soft pink lushness of our camellia

And the fractal petaled whiteness of the white camellia

I ask this protection from morn to night

Through dawn twilight to the night’s beginning

And to the next morning.

Prayer for a spring morning

Prayer for an early spring morning

I ask the blessing and protections of the day for all those I love

Blessings and protection from first morning light

Through the passage of the day to twilight

And all through the night until dawn’s first light

Blessings of the first shy daffodil

Exuberance of the flowering redbud tree

Cheer of the yellow daisied euryops

Freshness of the blooming rosemary

Farewell from the last of the flowering pear blossoms

Sweetness of the budding lemon tree

Greeting from the mockingbird’s calls from the tree

Healing from the chill morning breezes

Clarity of the shining, piercing blue of the morning sky

Be with me this day as I go my way

Bless my tongue

Bless my heart

Bless my feet

Through our this day until I arrive home at night.

Prayer for the blessings of Spring

I ask blessing of the first egg from which the world is born.

Blessing from the eggs of birds

Blessing from the eggs of snakes

Blessing from the egg of the sacred ibis

We see the birth of the spring reflected in the eyes of the sacred rabbit

Who defines being. *

I see the blessings of the season in the flowers of fruit trees

I see the blessing of the season in the fresh shoots of green on hillsides

I see the blessings of the season in the dancing flights of paired birds

I see the blessing of the season in the play of two squirrels

I see the blessing of the season in the turning of damp fertile soil

I see the blessing of the season in the taste of spring berries

I see the blessings of the season in the glory of spring bulbs bursting into flower

I see the blessing of the season in the colours of the reborn land

I see the blessing of the season in the quickening of life around me

.

May I see those blessings and give thanks for them, every day and every night

From dawn to twilight and around the sun’s progession about the earth.

I see and ask and give thanks for the blessings of spring.
