In this ritual two elements, earth and water, are combined to honor the return of spring, the season of rebirth. Snow and ice may still dominate the landscape in many regions, but spring isn’t far away. You’ll need a garden hoe or shovel and a watering can. If you live in an apartment, you may use a dish of potting soil and an old spoon, or any suitable substitute.
Begin by going out to your garden or yard. Turn a small spot of earth with your hoe or shovel, just enough to loosen the soil. Then sprinkle the turned soil with some water. As you do so, say:
Water, combine with the earth.
Visualize yards and parks turning green and lush again. Put away your tools and wait for spring. It’ll be here before you know it!
