|Invoke Wednesday deity Mercury, Roman god of travel, as you prepare for a winter getaway. When traveling, overprepare and then go with the flow. Make a list-not the usual "clothes, shoes, toiletries" list, but what you'll also need to take, and to do, to care for your sacred self while traveling. What will bring you safety, security, peace of mind, relaxation, acceptance, and joy?
Don't forget your toothbrush and sunscreen, but pay careful attention to the essentials of magical self-care. Take multi-use items, such as magically charged jewelry, sacred cloth sarongs, herbal dream pillows, or a journal for magical observation, journaling, and note taking. Avoid athames and unidentified herbs or oils, as these may slow you down at customs.
While on vacation, make time for sacred routines, rituals, meditation, and spellwork. Do protective spells daily to ensure you always travel with good spirits, and remember to always give thanks.
