Ostara Etsy Sales!

Hey everyone, Happy Ostara!  I put a few items on sale (20% off) at my Etsy shop for the weekend:

Featured: 

Ostara Soap: Regular $5 Cnd; this weekend $4 Cnd

These handmade Sabbat soaps were created in a cast circle with all-natural ingredients specific to the Pagan symbolism of the appropriate holiday. Though they were made a few years ago, they are still as strong as they ever were. I still use them regularly from one point on the Wheel to the next.

Pigmented in bright springly colours, Ostara Spring Easter Soap is made with naturally rendered bunny fat and egg yolk. It contains a blend of natural spring flower oils.

Use these bars during the Spring Equinox and Easter season, for Equinox or Ostara ritual; a devotional ritual for the Spring and Ostara goddesses; or just to uplift your spirits.

These are very solid soap wedges made with a press and they will last you for years if you care for them.

One-of-a-Kind Handfasting Cord “Magick is Afoot”: Regular $20 Cnd; this weekend $16 Cnd

In medieval and Renaissance times, when people were married, the officiant would fasten their hands together until the marriage was consummated; hence the expression “take your hand in marriage.” Modern Celtic spiritualists and Neo-Pagans have rediscovered the custom of binding the couple’s hands during the ceremony. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handfasting

My handfasting cords are beautiful, delicate braided genuine-silk ribbons in symbolic colours, and adorned with symbolic charms. Not only can they be used in the ceremony, but they will make lasting keepsakes of your special day. Hang them above the marriage bed to preserve happiness in the bedroom.

This handfasting cord is representative of the Goddess of Love, in particular Venus or Aphrodite, goddesses of romantic love and relationships. One end is finished in a pewter spiral goddess charm, who represents primal power, creation, newness and rebirth, as well as fertility for those who want that to be part of their lives. The other end is finished with a pentacle, symbolic of humanity, the balance of the four elements plus spirit, protection, and the goddess Venus.

The colours were chosen for their magical symbolism. Pink represents romantic love; yellow is for love based in good communication, joy and shared interests; lavender is for the spiritual aspects of love.

This might be especially ideal any devotee of Aphrodite and other love goddesses, Dianic witches, lesbian or gender-queer couples, and anyone with a strong focus on Goddess-based devotion or a special reverence for the Divine Feminine.

The cord is two and a quarter feet in length.

One-of-a-Kind Ostara Goddess Necklace: Regular $125 Cnd; this weekend $100 Cnd

This devotional necklace was created in honour of the Goddesses of Spring: Ostara, Ishtar, Kore/Persephone, and possibly Kwan Yin. This is a piece devoted to the creative power of the coming of Spring. This is also an ideal necklace for a new Maiden on her first moon cycle or a mother-to-be.

The most eye-catching beads in the piece are four bright aqua blue glass beads with embedded pink roses and leaves (for the four seasons). These are alternated with strawberry quartz cylinder beads that match the roses (eight for the eight Sabbats,) purple fluorite round beads (nine on each side for the number of fate), and plastic aqua blue beads to pick up the colour of the glass beads with the rose designs (three beads in each set and four sets equals twelve for the months of the year). The centerpiece is a pewter Goddess charm with the spiral of rebirth in Her belly, flanked by tiny aventurine round beads that pick up the colour of the leaf design.

The fastener is a sturdy large silvertone lobster clasp with silver jump rings. It’s finished by long aqua blue spacers at the back of the neck (nine on each side).

Aventurine: Success, Prosperity, Mental Clarity.
Fluorite: Spiritual Wholeness, Peace, Organization.
Strawberry Quartz: Unconditional Love, Opens The Heart, Romantic, Self-Love, Sex.

Note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information.

The necklace measures 47 cm (18 and a half inches) in length.

Layaway and payment plans: Yes, I am willing to do layaways and payment plans in cycles of a few payments at regular intervals. Convo me for details and we can work something out.

Mailing: If you would like shipping insurance on this item, please contact me for a custom order. Otherwise I will ship it well-wrapped and thoroughly protected in a bubble mailer and the customs declaration will say “costume jewelry” in order to prevent theft.

One-of-a-Kind “Kore Rising” Necklace: Regular $150 Cnd; this weekend $120 Cnd

This devotional necklace was created in honour of the return of Persephone in Her aspect as the Kore for the Vernal Equinox. It would also be perfect for Inanna in Her triumphant return from the Underworld and the creative power of the coming of Spring. This is also an ideal necklace for a new Maiden on her first moon cycle or a mother-to-be.

The centerpiece is a sterling silver spiral, symbolizing the cycle of death and rebirth and the Underworld journey. It is framed by sterling silver Maiden goddess charms and sterling silver oak leaves. The most eye-catching beads in the piece are four golden glass beads with embedded pink roses and leaves (for the four seasons). These are alternated with strawberry quartz cylinder beads that match the roses (eight for the eight Sabbats,) tiny aventurine round beads that pick up the colour of the leaf design flanking silver-white crackle glass beads, and clear iridescent faceted beads to pick up the colour of the glass.

The fastener is a sturdy large silvertone lobster clasp with silver jump rings. It’s finished by clear iridescent faceted beads and the silver-white crackle glass beads at the back of the neck.

Aventurine: Success, Prosperity, Mental Clarity.
Strawberry Quartz: Unconditional Love, Opens The Heart, Romantic, Self-Love, Sex.

Note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information.

The necklace measures 52 cm (about 20 and a half inches) in length.

Layaway and payment plans: Yes, I am willing to do layaways and payment plans in cycles of a few payments at regular intervals. Convo me for details and we can work something out.
