A Litle Humor for Your Day – ‘Desperate Parents’

Desperate Parents


An old man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.”

“Pop, what are you talking about,” the son screams.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the old man said. “We’re sick and tired of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her.” And he hangs up.

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone, “Like heck they’re getting a divorce,” she shouts. “I’ll take care of this.” She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at the old man, “You are NOT getting divorced! Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” And she hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says, “They’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way!!”

The Daily OM for Aug. 25th – Why We Don’t Remember

Why We Don’t Remember
The Gift of this Journey

by Madisyn Taylor


There is a gift in not remember who we are when we are born into this lifetime; the gift is the journey.

Many of us wonder why we do not remember who we were before we were born. We wonder what it was like to be a soul without a body and what it will be like to be one again. Many of us have a strange sense that we do remember, as if we did experience a bodiless existence, but we can’t quite recall the details. We may remember feeling as if we were flying, or as if we were just incredibly light and unrestricted in our movements. Still, most of us do not recall anything in detail about the time before we incarnated into a human body.

There are many possible reasons for this deep forgetting, one of which is that remembering would probably impinge upon our ability to fully commit to this life. Experiencing life on earth without any memory of an alternative existence allows us to be here completely, and that is what is required in order for us to learn much of what we must learn here. Most of us are not meant to spend our time here preoccupied with concerns beyond the realm of this lifetime. Instead, it is our job to occupy our bodies and our planet with a fullness that would not be possible if we were constantly aware of another, and extremely different, realm of existence.

There is no doubt that life on earth is difficult in ways that life outside of a body is not. As we modulate our energy to move into a body, our consciousness changes, and this is a necessary change. Forgetting other levels of being protects us from a confused and divided experience. Soon enough, we will be back where we started, so thinking too much about it now is a bit like being on a fascinating journey and spending the whole time thinking about going home. It is more in alignment with our purpose here to be fully present in the gift of this journey, unreservedly offering our energy to the experience we are having right now.

The Witches Magick for August 25th: August New Moon Ritual

Moon & Witch Comments & Graphics

August New Moon Ritual

Adjusting to Change Spell

As you reap the harvest of your magickal work (not to mention the alterations that you have made in your everyday life) , you will see many benefits. You may be stronger, wiser, more prosperous, healthier… thinner. Whatever you have been working on, you should be seeing some of the results by now. That’s good, right? Of course it is.

Still, most people find change to be at least a bit unsettling, even if the change is for the better. Some of us get downright stressed out by the new and different, even if it is what we asked for in the first place. So here is a spell to help ease you through the transition to the new and improved you.

Note: You can also use this spell any time you need help with some type of change, including the not-so-positive ones that life occasionally throws at us. It doesn’t need to be done at one of the moons to be effective, either. Just put all your need for help into it, and the Goddess will hear you, no matter what the date.


Adjusting to Change:

Note: This ritual is best done in a quiet atmosphere. If you like to play music in the background as you get started, turn it off before you call the quarters.


*Note if you are a Solitary Practitioner change the HP or HPS to yourself)

  • Cleanse and consecrate the circle with sage or incense.

  • Cleanse and consecrate the circle with salt and water.
  • If desired, pass the Peace and Happiness oil around the circle. Have circle members or just yourself anoint while concentrating on becoming more at peace.
  • Cast the circle, either hand to hand or by having the HPS walk around the circle with her athame.
  • Call the Quarters.

  • HPS invokes the Goddess: “Great Goddess, Lady of the Moon, we welcome you. As the moon rules over the changes in the tides and in our bodies, so you rule over the changes in our spirits. We ask that you join us tonight, and aid us as we seek to deal with those changes with grace and dignity. So Mote It Be.”

  • - Drum to raise energy. If your group likes to chant, this is a good time to do the “She changes everything She touches, and everything She touches changes” chant. Remember to focus on what you want to achieve with this magickal work.
  • When you have raised the energy in the circle to its peak, recite the spell together. If some or all of the people in your group are in crisis, repeat the spell three times for added power:

Adjusting to Change Spell

In time of change, to ease transition

I call upon the Goddess wise

To help me find my new position

Underneath her moonlit skies

Guide my spirit, hands and heart

In this time of shifting tide

Aid me with the tasks I start

While easing what I lay aside

Whether grief or joyous birth

Sadness or release

With Air and Water, Fire and Earth

The Goddess brings me peace

So Mote It Be

-Take a moment of silence to ground, and let your new balance settle in.

-Pass Cakes and Ale. Comfort foods like cookies are good for this ritual

-Pass the Speaking Stick.

-Dismiss the Quarters.

-HPS thanks the Goddess.

-Open the circle. (This is a good time to recite the Wiccan Rede.)

A Little Humor for Your Day – Unintended Results

Unintended Results


A chemistry instructor wanted to teach his ninth grade class about the evils of liquor, so he created an experiment to make the point. Producing two glasses and two small worms, he first poured a small amount of water into one of the glasses. Putting in the first worm, he asked the class to observe it carefully. Of course, the worm swam about happily — or as happy as a worm can be. Then he took the second glass, poured in a small amount of whiskey and dropped in the remaining worm. This worm writhed around painfully and sank to the bottom of the glass dead.

“Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?”, the teacher asked. One kid had the answer right away,

“Drink whiskey and you won’t get worms!”

An Overview of Your Weekend Love Horoscopes for Aug. 22 – 24th

Weekend Love Horoscope

August 22-24: That Lovin’ Feeling!

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of love, horoscopes, astrology

A slow and steady buildup of Earth energy this weekend will lead to you and your sweetheart enjoying the more physical pleasures together — but first you’ll want to talk about your technique. That’s what happens when you combine a Taurus Moon with communication planet Mercury entering Virgo on Friday.

The need for sensual enjoyment with your lover will be strong, but talking so much about it and planning it endlessly will either lead to the perfect weekend, or to an upsetting weekend in which  one or both of you feels inadequate, rejected, or even worse — unloved.

Remember not to criticize your mate directly if you do wind up talking about your sex life and physical needs. Remain constructive and communicate with sensitivity. The Moon will slide into talkative Gemini by Sunday evening, allowing you to do exactly that.

The Witches Magick Spell for Saturday, August 23 – Far Memory Spell

Dragon Comments & Graphics

Far Memory Spell


Set a white candle aflame in a darkened room and place in a position and place in a position so that it illuminates your face as you stand before the mirror, but itself isn’t reflected.

Say the following:

Oracle of lunar light,
send me now the second sight.

Gaze into your reflection’s eyes or just above and between them. Gradually, your reflection will dissolve and you will see another face appear; it will be that of a former life. It should be unmistakeably familiar to you.

With practice this can be used to learn a great deal about past lives. Try to “tune in” on the face. Attempt to see the rest of the body, clothing, jewelry, backgrounds – anything that would help you place the period and location.

Just seeing the face may trigger unexpected emotional reactions within you; note these and you may begin to remember people and events that have been locked away inside your far memory.

Sometimes this works better in near darkness; adjust the amount of light that hits your face until you have achieved desired results.

It is best to find a work area that you can leave untouched for 3 days.

The following ingredients are needed:

Love or protection incense


It is best to find a work area that you can leave untouched for 3 days. If you must put away your tools, try to leave the spell candle out in the open. Prepare your work area by setting up any tools you may be using in addition to your spells candle. (Black) Love or protection incense is recommended. While setting up your area, concentrate on the purpose of the work. Bathe or cleanse your self. Do not let negative thought enter your mind. Go your work area. Cast the Circle, light incense. Envision a large, white ball of light surrounding you, your work area, and your home. Hold the candle between the palms of your hand and direct all positive energy into it. Place the candle and prior to lighting say, “This candle represents protection over me in all things.” Light the candle and say, “As the light of this flame grows, I feel the light and positive energy around me. As this candle burns, everything around me is blessed with light and love. I am blessed with light and love. Negative energy is banished.” Sit back and watch the candle burn. Keep visualizing the white ball of light and protection around you.. Evision your higher self blessing you and protecting you from harm. When the candle has burned 1/3 of the way down say, “As the flame of the candle is extinguished… Evil, negativity, and harm towards me is banished! Any entity, ghost or spirit her by mistake go into the light and pass on to the world of spirit, be not afraid as many wait for you there who you have loved and who love you. Extinguish the candle. But don’t blow it out! Repeat this for 2 more nights. Bury or throw away the left over wax.
