We have been lucky enough to get snow here today! It rarely snows, and when it does, it rarely settles. However, today saw the largest snowflakes fall, settle, and stick around for the day. It was beautiful going for a walk through the park and seeing the trees all covered in snow. It also got me thinking about snow magick. I don't get the chance to do it often, so I want to make the most of this opportunity!
To me, at least, snow represents balance. There is something extremely tranquil about staring out across the land as it lies under a blanket of pure white snow, untouched and undisturbed. Snow can bring joy; snowball fights, building snowmen, and going for long walks and admiring the view. It can also bring isolation, and harsh conditions which are difficult to survive without the proper resources. This balance is something which is referred to in almost every resource I have read about snow magick, and is one which resonates with me.
Snow also represents transformation, and letting go. It tranforms the landscape, and as it melts, the land reemerges anew. We all have difficult challenges and obstacles we face from time to time, and snow energy can teach us to just let it all melt away and wait for what is revealed beneath it. As the snow melts, so do our worries.
'Letting go' is a prevalent theme with snow magick, as it is also good for cleansing, purification, and banishing.
Here are some ideas you can try for making the most of the snow in a magickal sense:
The type of conditions you collected the snow in should also be taken into consideration. For example, if
you collected the snow during a freak, raging blizzard, then it may not be most appropriate for a peace
Unfortunately the lack of regular snow around here makes it difficult to practice snow magick, but when the opportunity does arise, it can be a lot of fun!
The Weekly Witch:
Once I week I talk about something 'witchcraft' related I have done with my week. How we incorporate witchcraft into our every day lives is always a topic that has interested me, so I wanted to start this blog to explore it further!
