Mail Order Witchcraft

National Enquirer runs my advertisements
Even though last week the revoked my license
Hexes and Love Spells for $9.95
It’s this kind of garbage that keeps me alive

(Doot-Doot-Doot, Doot-Doot-Doot, Doot-Doot-Doot, Doot-Doot-Doot)

I’ll sell you crosses and religious icons
I buy them wholesale, I get them in Taiwan
Copy my spells from off bathroom walls
Write them in Latin, my fans are enthralled

Mail Order Witchcraft, it’s a living, and I’m doing well
I claim tax exemption because of a religion and then I just sell, sell, sell

)O( )O( )O( )O( )O(

Crowley’s the author of my favorite spell
For summoning demons up out of Hell
Wasn’t poetic, I changed it a pinch…
Last one to use it has not been seen since

(Doot-Doot-Doot, Doot-Doot-Doot,
Doot-Doot-Doot, Doot-Doot-Doot)

I’ve written a book about spells and their uses
Catching familiars in spell-woven nooses
Changing your husband into a small pup
It’s all quite authentic, I made it all up

Mail Order Witchcraft, it’s a living, and writing is not hard
I’ve written booklets and pamphlets and novels, I’m thinking of greeting cards

)O( )O( )O( )O( )O(

I’m quite advanced, I’ve even made Elder
Though at the seminar they made us swelter
Took me three days but I got my degree
For a nominal fee you can get yours from me

(Doot-Doot-Doot, Doot-Doot-Doot,
Doot-Doot-Doot, Doot-Doot-Doot)

My Wiccan acquaintances cause a sensation
Claiming that I’ve ruined their reputation
I think that’s nonsense, just jealous I fear
What I learned in three days has taken them years

Mail Order Witchcraft, it’s a living, my clientele is large
I’ll accept cash, money order or Visa, I even take Master Charge

Elder Flower – Extracts of elder are sometimes used in over-the-counter cold remedies, and elder flower tea may alleviate cold and flu symptoms. The flowers and ripe berries of the elder are safe, but avoid the roots, stems and leaves. The tea is a mild stimulant.

Daily Aromatherapy Tip

Daily Aromatherapy Tip   
 
Sandalwood is indicated for obsessive worry, and for worldly “over attachment”.
Whenever we over invest in seeing specific outcomes for our efforts, Sandalwood
helps us to re-establish an acceptance of reality as it is.

Pre-Spring Cleaning Ritual

Pre-Spring Cleaning Ritual
 
What is cluttering up your home, both literally and metaphorically? Now is a good time to clear your home of clutter and to clear whatever blocks your progress. Begin with your altar. Is it cluttered? Clear it, put down a fresh altar cloth, and place a new white candle on it. Take a cleansing bath or shower with sage, lavender, or hyssop, chanting “Pure, pure, I am pure” as you bathe. (Purity was very important to the priests and priestesses in ancient times.) At dusk, light the candle. Look into the candle flame and meditate on its solitude and purity. Feel burdens slip off your shoulder, and open the shades so you can see the Moon. Promise the Moon and Virgo the Virgin that you will focus on what is important in life and remove whatever is blocking you. Set aside the time between the Full and New Moon to clear clutter from your life.

Today’s Goddess: MINERVA

 

Today’s Goddess: MINERVA

Terminalia (Rome)
 
Themes: Earth; Home
Symbols: Owl; Geranium
 
About Minerva: This Etruscan/Italic Goddess blended the odd attributes of being a patroness of household tasks, including arts and crafts, and also being the patroness of protection and of war. Today she joins in pre-spring festivities by helping people prepare their lands for sowing and embracing the figurative lands of our hearts, homes, and spirits with her positive energy.
 
To Do Today: In ancient times, this was a day to bless one’s lands and borders. Gifts of corn, honey, and wine were given to the earth and its spirits to keep the property safe and fertile throughout the year. In modern times, this equates to a Minerva-centered house blessing.
 
Begin by putting on some spiritually uplifting music. Burn geranium-scented incense if possible; otherwise, any pantry spice will do. Take this into every room of your home, always moving clockwise to promote positive growing energy. As you get to each room, repeat this incantation:
 
Minerva, protect this sacred space and all who live within. By your power and my will, the magic now begins!
 
Wear a geranium today to commemorate Minerva and welcome her energy into your life.

Cosmos

Cosmos

 

A small blue world

Sits in my palm,

Perfect;

I don’t know why,

But I am sad;

It marked me

Somehow,

That small world,

Seeded with hopes of

Future worlds

And new cycles

Of life

Seasons of the Witch

Seasons of the Witch

Venice: PANCAKE DAY. Pancake tossing, pancake races. King Carnival is greeted with much ceremony. He is a very fat man,
his straw body stuffed with explosives. He is burned at midnight.

Terminalia – On this day, Romans honored boundary god Terminus. Neighbors met at the boundary stones between their properties, with the women bringing torches ignited on their hearths, the sons with baskets of produce from the property and the daughters with special honey cakes. The women kindled twin altar fires made of neatly interlaced sticks. The sons held their baskets over the fire and the girls shook them three times to scatter its contents into the flames, then fed the cakes to the fire. Employees stood by dressed in white, wine in hand. The two landowners slaughtered a lamb and a suckling pig and let the blood spatter on the stone. Then the two families sat down for a feast.

A good day to honor boundaries of all sorts, from property boundaries to personal boundaries. How can you mark and define your space? What tokens will you set up to show others where your boundaries are? And how will you honor these?   Rufus, Anneli, The World Holiday Book, Harper San Francisco 1994

St Mildburga – This sixth century Shropshire saint was associated with plowing and sewing from an early date. She protected a newly-sown field from the depredations of worms and geese. While fleeing from her enemies she caused water to spring up out of the ground and a field of barley to grow to maturity in one day. Her feast day falls in the middle of the spring wheat sowing season in Shropshire. Berger,
Pamela, The Goddess Obscured, Beacon Press 1985

St Polycarp – The LaPlante sisters recommend St Polycarp as the saint to invoke when looking for a parking spot, although the connection between his life (he was a student of the Apostle John, a Bishop of Smyrna and martyred at the age of 86) and parking places is obscure. They suggest the following prayer: “Polycarp, find me a spot.”
LaPlante, Alice & Clare, Heaven Help Us: the Worrier’s Guide to the Patron Saints, Dell 1999

  

 NOTE: Because of the large number of ancient calendars, many in simultaneous use, as well as different ways of computing holy days (marked by the annual inundation, the solar year, the lunar month, the rising of key stars, and other celestial and terrestrial events), you may find these holy days celebrated a few days earlier or later at your local temple

February’s Flower is the Blue Violet

February’s Flower is the Blue Violet.  The blue violet stands for watchfulness and faithfulness.   According to Greek a legend, Zeus was in love with a beautiful nymph names Io. Naturally his wife, Hera, was not to pleased. So, to hide Io from her he changed her in to a white heifer. When Io ate the grasses she found them too coarse and bitter for her and she began to cry. Zeus changed her tears into violets that were tender and sweet enough for her to eat.
