13 Days of Magic

A Birthday Letter to Your Astrological Angel #13daysofmagic

So my birthday starts of this whole #13daysofmagic series done by multiple awesome witches. I always do at least one special ritual on my birthday: It is the day I recharge the pentacle I wear all the time.

This year I wanted to start a new tradition based on something I read in Richard Webster’s book Praying With Angels. In his book he gives the notion of writing a letter to the angel or archangel that rules your astrological sign or birth-month. This letter is to say thanks for any interactions you have had, to thank them for watching over you, to ask them to answer questions and, best of all, to answer a request. Why not? It is your birthday after all!

You can make a request for yourself or for someone else in the letter. On or around your birthday, clear and cleanse yourself with a spiritual bath or smudging, Get out a pen, paper, and an envelope. Start by addressing your angel. Then go into giving them gratitude for all they have done for you. Gratitude opens us up to greater blessings. Make your request and then thank them again for listening. Lastly sign your name, seal the letter into the envelope, and address it to your angel.

Place the letter either on your altar or under your pillow. The pillow option can help you get dreams from your angel whereas putting it on your altar helps you contact them in meditation. Either way burn the envelope with the letter in it when you feel like it has been received or within two weeks of its writing.  I love incantations to focus my intentions so I might say over the envelope:

angel of the goddess
my angel so dear
receive this letter
my words you will hear
for my highest good you act
give a dream or a sign
as proof of our pact
between us and the divine.

You will receive a dream or sign that your letter has been received.
