For this spell, you will need a crystal point and a bowl of sea salt. Cast a circle, using the crystal point as an athame. Invite the elements and deities of your choice.
Envision the negativity within you as black splotches. Pull all of the splotches together toward your center, then push the negativity out of you. Use the crystal point to direct the negativity to the bowl of salt to be grounded.
Thank the elements and deities. Open the circle. Dispose of the salt in running water, being careful not to touch it. Be sure to cleanse your crystal before using it again.
Monarchs cannot survive without milkweed; their caterpillars only eat milkweed plants (Asclepias spp.), and monarch butterflies need milkweed to lay their eggs. With shifting land management practices, we have lost much milkweed from the landscape.
Please plant milkweed to support monarch populations, and their incredible migration! Planting milkweed is a great way to help other pollinators too, as they provide valuable nectar resources to a diverse suite of bees and butterflies.
Adult monarchs will drink the nectar of many flowers in addition to milkweed; in fact they need sources of nectar to nourish them throughout the entire growing season. Include a variety of native flowering species with different bloom times to provide monarchs with the food they need to reproduce in the spring and summer and to migrate in the fall. Offering a wide array of native nectar plants will attract monarchs and many other butterflies and pollinators to your habitat all season long.

Sumerian song to Inanna
Heaven is mine, the earth is mine
I am warrior am I
Is there a god who can vie with me?
The gods are sparrows-I am a falcon
The gods trundle along
I am a splendid wild cow.
