4th Quarter Waning Moon in Sagittarius

Celtic Tree Month of Ash

Cloudy and cold

We’ve had wacky weather, in the mid-fifties one day, snow the next. It’s been mild the past few days, but tomorrow, a foot of snow is predicted.

Tiny shoots have come up in the two marine heliotrope pots, and one tiny echinacea shoot has come up. Earlier than expected, and so exciting! I moved the pots out onto the front porch in the sun during the mild days, and will take them in today as the temperature drops. The shoots are too tiny to show up well in my low-grade camera in my phone, but once they’re big enough to look good in a picture, I’ll post one.

I meant to plant cat grass earlier this week, but I didn’t, so tomorrow I will plant cat grass and the nasturtiums.

Yesterday it was in the mid-fifties, and the weather veered every few minutes from rain to sun and back again. By evening, it dropped to the mid-thirties, and when I woke up this morning, it was only 16.

Snow’s supposed to start tonight and go all day tomorrow. I have the pre-storm headache, so I think it might start earlier. Or maybe I just hope it will, to ease the pressure in my head.

What do we focus on for the tree month of Ash? Ash magic is connected to dreams, prophecy, the sea, healing, and prosperity, so any of those aspects of your life that need work are a good focus for the month.

I hope this weekend’s snowstorm is it for this area. I shouldn’t complain; supposedly November and December were unseasonably mild, so we really only had rough weather last month and this month. But, for the shortest month, February seems long. And dreary. I mean, I live in New England because I like seasons, so here we are with seasons.

And I like sitting inside and watching the snow from the tall windows.

Hopefully, next week, it will be milder and more plants will be up!
