When the squirrel spirit animal appears to you, this is a sign to take life a little less seriously.
The squirrel symbolism encourages you to inject more fun and laughter, and just enjoy the wonders of your world!
Having the squirrel spirit animal reminds you to be adaptable, and to be ready for any changes that you need to make at the last minute.
The squirrel meaning is about surrendering and letting things happen.
The squirrel spirit animal highlights the importance of communication and showing respect to the people around you through your words, actions, and behaviours.
It encourages you to respect your differences and find a way to work harmoniously together.
Squirrel symbolism also focuses on the changes that are taking place in your life.
These changes are what will force you out of your comfort zone so that you will grow, and these changes can help lighten your load by getting rid of what no longer serves your purpose.
The meaning of the squirrel reminds you to tackle any issues or problems head on instead of ignoring them or pushing them aside.
Be honest about your thoughts and emotions, and don’t bottle them up inside you.
Saving up is another important squirrel symbolism. Be mindful of how much you consume when it comes to your resources and how much you spend when it comes to your finances.
You need to teach yourself to save for the rainy days and to adjust accordingly when money is tight. Work to have a comfortable life so that you don’t have to spend your whole life just trying to make a living.
When the squirrel totem scurries its way to you, it’s a message for you to have fun. Your life is filled with work and commitments, but you deserve some rest and relaxation, too.
The meaning of the squirrel reminds you that life doesn’t have to be so serious all the time. There’s a time for work and hustle, and there’s a time for fun and play.
Rid your life of stressful and toxic clutter, and that applies to both physical and emotional clutter.
Lighten the load as you go on with life because this is important if you want to create a healthy balance of peace and happiness.

Mercury retrograde is quite common and takes place about 3 or 4 times. It stays for a couple of weeks and during this retrograde, we go through a storm and shadow period.
The shadow period begins when the planet turns direct and ends when it hits the point of the Zodiac on which the retrograde happens.
That’s the time when you feel its effect. After all, Mercury is fast and when it has to slow down, it doesn’t like it. Generally, Mercury retrogrades have two storm periods and then, it goes direct again.
Mercury retrograde takes place in Leo, first. Some drama is going to come your way during this time. Leos love to make mountains out of molehills. Plus, Leos love their fair share of attention, and they would take it somehow.
Leo rules over love, hence, affection and love are something that will be part of your life during this period. But like Leo, you will try to gain control over it.
Since Leo loves to play around, we do not quite know what and who we will fall in love with. Maybe it could be an activity we love to do, maybe we can just go out for a vacation. Leo is creative so, don’t let that creativity die out.
This Mercury retrograde commences on 7th July at 7:14 PM ET and concludes on 31st July at 11:58 PM ET. The shadow period is 23rd June – 15th August. The first storm period is 29th June – 19th July, and the second storm period is 23rd July – 7th August.
The retrograde commences at 4 degrees Leo, so the Leos born between 25th – 30th July will have its most impact. The retrograde concludes at 23 degrees Cancer, so Cancerians born between 13th to 19th July will feel the most impact of this energy.
Mercury also goes into retrograde in Cancer, on 19th July. Cancer is emotional so get ready for a huge emotional ride coming your way. Find support and comfort in your family, and don’t let the outside world influence you too much.
There is a chance that you feel a bit insecure inside. Its fine your emotions are acting out, just don’t lash out at this moment, be a bit flexible and adapt to the situation. Your family will help you out.
While the retrograde is happening, there will be a lunar eclipse as well, happening in Capricorn, on 16th July.
Mercury is going to be opposite it and emotions will be really high during this period so, it is necessary for Capricorn and Cancer to find a balance during this period.
Three aspects will be coming your way when Mercury turns retrograde. There will be a conjunction with Mars in transit on 8th July. It will bring in huge energy which is both reckless and impatient. Plus, the retrograde will make a hard aspect with the transit of Uranus in Taurus. It is an alignment which wants us to be careful and cautious.
On 21st July, Mercury will be making a conjunction with the Sun. It is an inferior one, but you get the chance to concentrate on something new for about six weeks. Mercury retrograde will also conjunct with Venus in Cancer on 24th July, so it may bring up pleasant energy for some, with a chance of accidents too. So, this time, Mercury retograde is going to be a bit crazy, so get prepared!

You might be wondering what a Handfasting is, it’s the pagan equivalent of a marriage ceremony. This ceremony is not a legally binding in the eyes of the law, it is however a binding contract to the couple on a deeper spiritual level.
The ceremony usually begins with everyone gathering at a selected spot, the area is then cleansed, swept with a broom to get rid of any negativity and turned into a sacred space.
The 4 elements, Air, Fire, Water and Earth are called in, as well as the God and Goddess. Once this is done then the main ceremony begins.
The couple are led through their declaration of love and vows their hands are held together and bound loosely by a special set of Cords (usually Gold & Silver) however any colour is ok.
The couple then `jump the broom’ which is a symbol of hearth, home and fertility, as well as protection.
This act symbolises leaving the past is behind as they jump over the broom in to the future together.
During the celebrations other couples can get to jump the broom, which is held at knee height by specially designated people.
It is also traditional for the couple to bless the wedding cake & wine, meads, champagne etc, and all the family, friends & guests are invited to come forward and offer their own blessings.
How the rest of the ceremony then proceeds is really up to the couple.
The handfasting ceremony can be intimate and small with the couple and a few family & friends, or a big festive event just like any other wedding ceremony with lots of people, entertainment and dancing.
The venues can vary from a local park, woodland, forest, a hall, a home garden, by a stream, near a waterfall or on the beach.
As pagans consider nature to be sacred usually they take place in woodlands or some natural setting.
The ceremony is usually an initiated by a High Priestess or someone involved in Wicca or other spiritual practices.
We like family & friends of the couple to help out and get involved with some of the ceremony by doing readings & poems.
It is important that some of the tools for the ceremony, especially the rings, cords and the broom not forgetting an altar which is created and decorated for the event.
The couple may have a wedding theme or dress code for their guests, a colourful dress for bride and suitable attire for the groom.
The venue which can be decorated with ribbons and flowers, the entertainment can be traditional musicians, drummers, violin & harp players, or even Morris Dancers. There are no rules all you need is imagination.

You can call upon the goddess Eostre she will help you to develop your intuition and move forward and get rid of all the things that no longer serve your highest purpose.

Many of us will celebrate Samhain over a few days and nights, which usually include a series of solo rites as well as ceremonies, spells, feasts, and gatherings with family and friends.
Pagans celebrate Samhain from sundown on October 31 through November 1.
Halloween, short for All Hallows Eve, its celebrated on and around October 31. Halloween and Samhain are not the same, they are two separate celebrations that differ considerably in focus and practice.
Samhain’s is associated with death and nature’s rhythms. In many places, Samhain coincides with the end of the growing season, as vegetation dies back with the frosts.
This is also when the veil is thin between the world of the living and the realm of the dead and this enables us to contact and communicate with loved ones.
For those who have lost loved ones in the past year, Samhain rituals can be a way to bring closure to the grieving and to help them adjust to their loved ones being in the Otherworld by spiritually communing with them.
There are many ways we celebrate Samhain. Here are a few listed below, why not try one of them for yourself.
Samhain Nature Walk. Take a meditative walk in a woodland area near your home. Observe and contemplate the colours, aromas, sounds, and other sensations of the season. If possible gather some natural objects and upon your return use them to decorate your home.
Seasonal Imagery. Decorate your home with Samhain seasonal symbols and the colours of orange and black. Place an Autumnal wreath on your front door. Create displays with pumpkins, cornstalks, gourds, acorns, and apples. Light candles in cauldrons.
Ancestors Altar. Gather photographs, heirlooms, and other mementos of deceased family, friends, and pets. Arrange them on a table, along with a few candles. Light the candles in their memory as you call out their names and express well wishes. Thank them for being part of your life. Sit quietly and pay attention to what you experience. Make a note of any messages you receive in your journal.
Feast of the Dead. Prepare a Samhain dinner. Include a place setting at your table for a deceased loved one. Add a place setting, and to the plate, add a bit of each food served. Invite your ancestors to come and dine with you. After the feast, place the contents of the plate and cup outdoors as an offering for the Dead.
Cemetery Visit. Visit and tend the gravesite of a loved one at a cemetery. Call to mind memories.Place an offering there such as fresh flowers, dried herbs, or water.
Reflections. Reflect on you and your life over the past year. Review journals, planners, photographs and blogs that you have created during the past year. Consider how you have grown, accomplishments, challenges, adventures, travels, and anything new that you have learnt.
Renovate. Select an area of your home or life as a focus. Examine it. Re organize it. Release what is no longer needed. Celebrate renewal and transformation.
Bonfire Magic. Light a bonfire outdoors or kindle flames in a fireplace or a small cauldron. Write down a habit that you wish to end and cast it into the flames as you imagine release. Then imagine yourself adopting a new, healthier way of being.
Divinatory Guidance. Using Tarot, Runes, Scrying, or some other method of divination, seek and reflect on guidance for the year to come. Write a summary of your process and any messages you received.
Divine Invocations. Honor and call upon the Divine associated with Samhain, such as the Crone Goddess and Horned God of Nature. Invite them to aid you in your understanding of the cycle of life, death, and rebirth. If you have lost loved ones in the past year, ask these Divine Ones to comfort and support you.
