And while I was digging out posts, here is how I made my witch's ladder last Samhain in case anyone else wants to make one.
EVERYTHING I incorporated on that ladder last year came to pass - strengthened love life/relationship, an ideal job for me, and a baby. I even had a baby girl, after using the pink ribbon!!
This year I want to get ribbons that represent marriage, monetary luck/abundance (for some reason in my head this ribbon is blue though that isn't ordinarily a colour I'd associate with luck/abundance), and health/healing.
I really enjoyed making this. I sat doing it by the window with all my Samhain/Hallowe'en decorations up in between answering the door to trick-or-treaters!!
Here are the ribbons I used. My reasoning was, the white ribbon represented spiritual development and a shift in awareness for all humanity; the pink ribbon represented continued and increased love for me and all my loved ones; and the green ribbon represented fertility and my ability to conceive, coupled with the pink, hopefully a baby girl. The flowers on the white and pink ribbons remind me of weddings, and certainly the particular people I was thinking of around the pink ribbon, I do hope to see lots of weddings over the next year or so!
I kept repeating these three intentions while braiding and knotting the ladder. I have attached three elephants - one silver which I already had from a necklace which broke, and two gold which I bought at the craft store the other day (matching the flowers on the white ribbon). I recently read that elephants are a symbol of fertility and having them on display in your bedroom aids conception, so that's my reasoning there (I think I read it here but am not sure).
I actually went searching for this post when I went and got my ribbons!! Took me a while but I found it. The ribbons I'm using may not typically be used for what I'm hoping for, but it should still work So excited!
What resonates for you is more important. I feel that my money luck/abundance ribbon this year ought to be blue. I don't know why - you'd think gold, or green for growth, right? But no, I want blue. So just going with it!
It works better searching for topics posted by a member then scrolling through, the search rarely works on keywords atm I don't know why.
I went back and forth for a bit on the third. I didn't know whether to wish for a permanent job, but we're talking about next September, and plus I can't figure out yet whether I should be going back to full-time teaching or trying to spark off more in the way of spiritual teaching while I'm off work. So I thought I would go for health and healing which is something I always, always neglect.
