Where I live here in California the lemons ripen on our tree in January. I usually end up giving many of them away on top of making lemonade, lemon pies and this year I made lemon blueberry scones and took them to our full moon ritual to share. Yes, to me January is about lemons and all they symbolize!


Lemon Blueberry Scones

Lemons are very cleansing and after all the holiday hubbub, I am ready for some physical and ritual scrubbing. In January I feel like going minimalist and cleaning out cupboards and behind furniture. I still have a lot of stuff, but after the Yule decorations are put away I  feel like seeing calmer colors and bare table tops. 

Lemon is a great additive to a cleansing wash for floors and countertops. The juice or oil of lemon will raise the energetic vibration of people and places. The yellow color is very Mercury-like and I feel the flavor and smell of lemon can clear the cobwebs from your brain. After last fall and the mayhem in the muggle world I am needing a brain cleanse. How about you? 

Physically, lemon in water is very detoxifying and helps the body to release unhelpful buildup. Can we relate to holiday overindulgence? Thank the Goddess for lovely lemons!

I know many people have snow rather than lemons in their yards right now, but lemons in some form are usually available almost everywhere these days. Actually, meditating on a silent white field could have a similar cleansing effect on body and spirit as you sip a lemony brew. 

“Bloom where you are planted”, I always say. Look around your space and acknowledge what you are being presented with at this moment in time. Do you have lemons or a snowy landscape or the sound of rain on your roof? What magick can you work with these blessings? 

With the return of the light at Yule may you move forward, renewed and ready to accomplish your goals for this journey around the sun!


Brightest Blessings,

Lady Sarina
