The Witch’s Ball

The Witch’s Ball

A witch ball is a very interesting item. Powerful and simple to make.

It requires a glass jar, I use a jar about the size of a baby food jar, with the lid….

 

You fill it halfway with sharp items. Broken glass, needles etc.

 

You then fill it with a liquid. Some use oils some vinegar others use their own urine. That seems to be a personal choice.

 

You then bury it in your yard. It “cut’s” any “evil” or bad, negative things “pointed” at your home. They are good for a year and then it is time to replace them.

 

I have also heard of witch balls being made with glass and then filled with string or yarn. You place them in a window and they “tangle” negative or evil as it comes to your home. For myself, I place mirrored balls in my windows to reflect out any bad energy from the outside. I make a point to sand off the tops of the jars and to remove any labels.

Daily Feng Shui Tip for Sunday, May 13

I simply don’t have the words to express my sentiments about today’s ‘Mother’s Day’ celebration. Sometimes just writing or saying the word ‘mother’ speaks volumes. Today I honor, appreciate and applaud every single one of us who have taken on the task of mothering. Some will be spending time with their own mothers today, the same mothers who sacrificed and snuggled, smiled and supported, no matter what. And then there are those of us who are living without our mothers, and our lives are definitely not quite the same. We miss them every day. I know I do. Happy Mother’s Day to every mother who walks this whole wide world. You make all that’s wonderful in the world even better — and most of the time you don’t even know it. Lucky bamboo is a great gift that is believed to bring solid support to every area of Mom’s now lucky life. There are even numbers of stalks you can give to show her support in specific endeavors, or oddly enough, other numbers that can also create great fortunes. Two stalks if she’s looking for a partner, five if her health is of concern and eight if she could use a little cold, hard cash. She warms your heart, holds your hand and cries whenever you do. Like I said, just read the word and feel the love. Mother. Happy day devoted just to you!

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for May 13th is 27: Nourishment

27: Nourishment

Hexagram 27

General Meaning: Nourishment refers to more than a healthy diet. It is the care-giving function. Eating properly implies care for oneself; providing healthy meals in the home is a sign of caring for the family. The writer of a great book or composer of an inspiring piece of music also provides nourishment, by caring deeply about the quality of his or her work and offering it to the world.

We can know others by observing what they choose to nourish in their lives. Do they properly feed and develop their bodies? Do they cultivate their spirits, their intellects, their moral values? Do they nourish and care for those around them? If so, to whom do they devote their energies? The most successful people are temperate in eating and drinking, thinking and dreaming. They strengthen the world by nurturing everyone’s higher nature.

Pay heed to your thoughts and impulses, ignoring those that undermine a healthy and persevering attitude. A wise person is temperate in the consumption of food and drink, because to be otherwise only leads to discomfort; the fact that temporary pleasure may precede the discomfort does not influence the person of mature character. In the same way, be discriminating in your words and actions, lest a desire for temporary advantage lead you to cause pain for yourself or others. Enrich your character and you will naturally nourish everyone around you.

Today’s Runes for Sunday, May 13th s Dagez

Today’s Runes

Spirit Runes are most commonly used for questions about mysticism, spirituality, and religion. Dagez means daylight, and represents divine light. This rune generally refers to dawn (the initial sparking of energy) or to midday (the climax of energy). Both dawn and midday are symbolic of change, but unlike the changes in the perpetual circle of the year which are slow and subtle, the changes over a day are much faster and more dramatic. The breaking of a new day is symbolic of the rapid illumination of dismal circumstances, and is suggestive of Satori. Be careful – although this rune generally suggests a positive change, the symbology of a peaking point suggests that there must be a change downward as well. Fortunately for some, this rune is cyclic and irreversible, and so permanence is not promised – the only thing you can be sure of is an exciting ride.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 13th

This is an uplifting day that can bring us joy as the Sun hooks up with bountiful Jupiter in sensual Taurus. This alignment symbolizes the opportunities we have for happiness, and the confidence that we’ll find satisfaction. Meanwhile, the Moon enters imaginative Pisces at 7:41 am EDT and joins dreamy Neptune, making fantasies seem real. Putting our thoughts into motion is further supported by clever Mercury’s harmonious trine to energetic Mars.
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You feel as if everything is going your way today, but you might end up spending more resources than you expect. It’s as if you’re ready to pay the price to have a good time, but you might underestimate the cost. Thankfully, you can rely on your analytical skills to help you navigate through a day of potential excess. Have fun; just remember that the bill will come due once the party is over.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You are feeling quite positive now with the Sun-Jupiter conjunction expanding your horizons and empowering you to soar on the wings of your unrestrained optimism. Although you are ready to enjoy yourself today, overindulging your senses could mean a tummy ache or a splitting head tomorrow. Nevertheless, paying attention to your limits doesn’t have to lessen your enjoyment. Play hard without going too far.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You can get by today by doing less work than usual. It’s as if a guardian angel is watching over you, or, perhaps, a close friend comes to your aid just when you need it most. Of course, your positive attitude doesn’t hurt; in fact, self-confidence is a magnet now that attracts good things your way. Don’t second-guess someone’s motives; just graciously accept what is offered with an open heart.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

There’s no need to head off on your own today. In fact, it’s a good idea to surround yourself with friends and family — the more people, the merrier. Being part of group gives you a feeling of belonging to a community or a tribe of like-minded folks. Don’t be afraid to open your heart to the love that’s around you, for whatever you give will return to you many times over.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although you may be thinking about your professional objectives, you’re not interested in working too hard to reach your goals today. Your confidence is running high and you might even feel as if success is owed to you because of past efforts. Don’t be too cocky or you could inadvertently push away those who want to help you reach your goals. Paradoxically, a little humility goes a long way toward ensuring that you will receive the respect that you deserve.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Today you can concentrate your intentions toward the fulfillment of your desires. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you’ll receive everything you want. However, your singular focus can actually bring an increase of abundance — including love — into your life. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn and grow. Take advantage of what life has to offer before it’s too late.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may feel that a long-term phase of inner growth is coming to an end. The power of your positive thinking can be transformed into rewarding action now. Your rich fantasy life turns outward toward social activities as your needs begin to shift. Get ready to swing into action, but don’t overextend your commitments or you’ll quickly regret taking on too much.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

All types of relationships are favored now and it might even seem as if others just want to make you happy. Although you may question someone else’s motives, your suspicions are probably unfounded. Rather than doubting anyone’s integrity, just accept the advice or assistance you receive with appreciation. But don’t succumb to the temptation of expecting more than is actually offered or you’ll end up being disappointed rather than happily surprised with the good news.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Too much of a good thing isn’t always such a good thing. You need to remember now that honoring reasonable limits can help you find satisfaction. You might be carried away by circumstances that start out feeling pleasurable until things grow out of control. Don’t be afraid to enjoy yourself, but keep in mind that excessive indulgence could ultimately bring pain instead of pleasure.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Although your creativity is running high, it’s still difficult to plot a new course of action because there are so many possibilities available. Additionally, if everything is working well enough on its own, you may not want to jeopardize your sense of well-being. Practicality will ultimately rule the roost. Opportunities for personal growth and self-expression are everywhere, but setting priorities enables you to maximize the current potential. Trust your instincts and your chances for success are quite good.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You must filter out the extraneous noise if you are to make the most of your day. You may even need to withdraw from social activities to spend time alone. The greatest opportunities arise now when you are at peace with yourself, rather than when you are interacting with others. Don’t be distracted from your inner process; you’ll do best today by working on your own.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The mists continue to swirl around you, clouding your perceptions of the outer world while increasing your reliance on your intuition. You are at the top of your game now when socializing, as long as you don’t waste time trying to logically figure out what to say next. Don’t worry if you’re not making sense. Instead of thinking your way through a situation, speak directly from your heart. The real rewards of the day are emotional and spiritual rather than material.

Your Daily Love & Romance Horoscopes for May 13th

Aries

Venus, planet of love is spending her last week in direct motion in your communication sector until later next month and is due to turn retrograde in just 3 days time. This will open the door to second chances, especially on the relationship front, but until then stay in the moment, without projecting forwards or backwards.

Taurus

You’re about to move into some extremely fortunate times on the income and work fronts, which could create some distractions over the coming weeks. It’s over the weekend that you’re able to work at developing the right balance between work and play, by tapping into your romantic passions, then holding onto that during your new working week.

Gemini

Venus, planet of love is spending her last weekend in direct motion in your sign until later next month and due to turn retrograde in just 3 days time, she’s asking you to stay in the moment. As Venus won’t progress any future and hasn’t yet turned retrograde there is no point looking too far ahead or looking back, with your only option being to stay in the moment.

Cancer

Because Pluto is the planet of change and revolution, his retrograde phase in your relationship sector is not a sightseeing trip, instead giving you a chance to change anything that isn’t working, especially those things revealed by hindsight. However, you can’t change what you can’t see, with a need to keep your head out of the sand.

Leo

When life is busy and there are demands on your time, it is easy to let your weekends be eaten up without getting a chance to focus on what’s really important. This is a day where your relationships need to come first, but it’s less about the quantity of time you spend together and more about the quality of that time.

Virgo

You’re about to head into some fairly intense relationship days, with a need for some attitude reality checks beforehand. Choose to move forward with the communication lines open and choose to see any relationship pressure as a chance for a breakthrough and to create something more authentic. Pretence is not an option.

Libra

During the Moon’s final hours in your romantic sector tap into the romantic vibes in the air and get an intuitive read on your heart, for this is the only point you’ll get all month to really delve deep. With a busy and intense working week waiting for you on the other side of the weekend, hold onto and make the most of the romantic and playful vibes in the air.

Scorpio

It’s because your relationships have been on such long and at times challenging journeys, that you’re able to appreciate and sense that things really are coming together. By this time next month even Jupiter will be gone from your relationship sector and it’s time now to bring things home.

Sagittarius

As Venus, planet of love spends her last weekend in direct motion in your relationship sector, before turning retrograde in just 3 days time, you’re able to benefit from the fact that the Moon is in your communication sector. This gives you a chance to slow down and make both your relationships and communication a priority today.

Capricorn

Until now you’ve been waiting for more things to fall into place before you could give lucky romantic forces your all, but that’s no longer the case. All the resources you need are now at hand and it’s time to put as much faith in the love gods as they’re putting in you. Find out first hand just how lucky in love you are, by holding nothing back.

Aquarius

As Venus, planet of love spends her last weekend in direct motion in your romantic sector, before turning retrograde in just 3 days time, she’s come to a near standstill, asking you to do the same. With old doors not yet open and Venus not venturing too much further, this leaves you no other option but to stay in the moment.

Pisces

Tomorrow Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos and Chiron, planet of healing will go head to head, creating yet another round of relationship pressure. Yet as you near the final hurdle you have to cross, having so many advantages on the communication front is already turning this into an opportunity, especially for a breakthrough.
