Now’s probably a good time to remind everyone to check/refresh the wards on your home or wherever you do this work. Be sure that you’re rested, grounded, and in a comfortable position. Maybe wrap up in a blanket or cloak or grasp a stone or talisman that matters to you. Grow your roots, send them deep into the soil, let them intertwine and grow small hairs to attach to the mycelia in your own landbase.
Anchor yourself firmly to your landbase. Notice a small detail that will call you back when this working is finished.
Ground and center. Cast a circle.
As you move to our American plain on the astral plane, you can see again the safe hillock where you do your work. You can see the five giant banners, shining in the sky: Walden Pond, the Underground Railroad, the Cowboy, the Salmon, and Lady Liberty. Do they seem more defined since we began our work? Do they have anything special to tell you this week?
For a few moments, just sit on your hillock and allow yourself to become comfortable. This place should be feeling very real to you by now; we’ve been working together to create it for months and months. What’s become familiar to you? A tuft of prairie grass? Buffalo off in the distance? The scent of sand carried on the wind? You’ve been involved in a months-long magical working here, joined with magic workers from across the globe. Feel your connection to this place on the astral plane. It is always here for you, always a source of strength.
This week, Congress will vote on a procedure for impeachment. This has been a long time coming. Congress will need courage and wisdom. The American Goddess Lady Justice, who is similar to the Greek Goddess Themis and the Roman Goddess Justitia, appears, often as a statue of a blindfolded woman who carries a scale, throughout courthouses and other buildings in every state of this country. As you stand on your hillock, you see those statues growing and coming to life. From each corner of America, Lady Justice raises her sword. You watch as the swords grow and come together, points touching to form a brilliant star over America. Lift your hand and guide that light towards the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. See the cleansing light of justice enveloping Congress, its staff members, and those who will be called upon to present evidence.
Return to your own body, your own landbase. Open your eyes. Rub your face, move your arms and legs. Notice the detail you selected to call you back from the astral. Open your circle. Drink something, maybe mint tea or cranberry juice. If you like, have something to eat, maybe some gingerbread or an apple.
During the course of this week, you may want to visit Lady Justice several times in order to strengthen its presence on the astral. You may want to repeat this working. You may want to place something on your altar to help you to remember Lady Justice. You may want to journal about your experience. Are you inspired to make any art? Can you sit beside a warm fire, or light incense, or stare into a candle? What actions are you inspired to take for the Resistance?
