All those new styles coming down the runway! Learn how to be your best-dressed self with our Ultimate Astrology Guide to Fashion.

Being a fashionista isn’t easy. Discovering your personal style and determining what image and look are best for you can be elusive. Luckily, astrology can provide just the insight you need to look your best, including what your best colors are and what accessories are right for you, based on your Sun Sign.

Astrology can also increase your chances for fashion success through planetary movements. When Venus, the planet of love and beauty, makes positive transits to your Sun, Moon, or Ascendant, you have a great chance of making good fashion choices.

In addition, look at your daily astro-calendar to find when the Moon is in Taurus or Libra. Those are the best times to spruce up your wardrobe, go to the hairstylist, or try a new makeup look.
Discover your optimum Sun Sign fashion self:

Aries:
Red is the color that matches your fiery personality, so use it as your main shade in all your outfits, and spice up your hairstyle with some red hair extensions. Your cheekbones are your best feature, and earrings, especially hoops, help show them off. You look stylish in hats of all kinds, from berets to panamas.

Taurus:
Your sensuous sign loves the touch of cashmere sweaters and silk shirts, and you look great in pastel colors of light violet, pink, and yellow. Don’t forget to add lots of necklaces and scarves to your accessories, since they flatter your sign’s part of the body, the neck and throat. You shimmer in flowery dresses, and paisley ties are a must for male Bulls.

Gemini:
You love what’s fun and hot and different, as in bubble-shaped tank dresses splashed in all the colors of the rainbow. Show off your beautiful hands and arms with rings and bracelets, and don’t forget handbags. Khaki tote bags and metallic suede clutch bags appeal to you, since you want your accessories to be as eclectic as you are.

Cancer:
Your personal colors are the shades of your ruler, the Moon: pearl, silver, and off-white. You love clothes that have a vintage and antique flavor, and you carry off that look better than anyone. Your sign’s body type is usually full in the bust, so capitalize on that with an array of feminine, lacy tops and blouses for gals and chest-hugging tank tops for guys.

Leo:
Everything you do is splashed with your customary flamboyance and flair, and that includes your fashion image. Your color scheme radiates the rays of the summer sun, so make it a point to wear yellow, orange, and gold, and consider having golden highlights put into your voluptuous mane of hair. Male Lions look great in polo shirts, while Lady Leos look smashing in snazzy halter and jersey dresses.

Virgo:
A printed shirt dress with a large leather belt, combined with a dark colored blazer, suits you and your tailored style perfectly. Look for earth tones for your best color matches, such as forest green, dark brown, and burnt umber, and incorporate those colors into your makeup scheme. You love to be punctual, and a small-dial strap watch is perfect for you.

Libra:
Feminine lacy dresses are your first love, and you look wonderful in the colors of pale blue, pink, yellow and green. Strappy sandals, chic Capri pants, and an off-the-shoulder blouse make your entrance into any social event one to take notice of. You male Libras bring romance to your wardrobe, and you shine in Edwardian style button down shirts.

Scorpio:
Sexy lingerie in the shades of black, maroon or burgundy is your idea of fashion heaven, and you wear that intimate bedroom look as often as you can and anywhere you can! Designer sunglasses aren’t just an accessory for you, they are a lifestyle statement, since you are able to deflect your intense and smoldering eyes with tinted lenses and Jackie O style oversize frames.

Sagittarius:
Casual and sporty is your style, and no one looks better than you do in a T-shirt, cutoff shorts and baseball cap, whether you are a female or male Archer. Your long legs look fabulous in leggings and tights, and when you wear form-fitting jeans, put on some slinky high-heeled boots to add to your pizzazz. Royal purple and midnight blue are your best colors.

Capricorn:
You are made for mensprint draped skirts and pinstripe pantsuits, and you wear the colors gray, white, and black with true stylish panache. When it’s time to relax, you look great in beaded skirts and tops, and you love denim, which you wear with ease. Guy Goats look great on weekends in flannel shirts, but for work you feel comfortable with the thin tie/white shirt/dark suit image.

Aquarius:
Your favorite color scheme is as electric as you are, and you love fluorescent colors, as in shocking orange. You love unique and off-beat clothing styles, and you look great with retro bell bottom jeans and 50’s high top sneakers, topped off with a racy camisole. Ankle bracelets were made for your sign, so wear them often, since they add a hint of allure to any outfit you have on.
Pisces:
Shoes R You, and one of your favorite shoe styles is the open-toed sandal in order to display your snazzy toe rings. Turquoise, aquamarine, and sea green are your best colors, and use those shades in your makeup, especially in eye shadow, since your eyes are one of your best features. Soft velvet jackets over pleated skirts for gals or pants for guys make a welcome addition to your closet.

Calendar of the Sun for February 27th

Calendar of the Sun

27 Solmonath

Day of the Elders

Colors: Grey, silver, and purple
Element: Earth
Altar: On cloth of purple, grey, and silver place three lit grey candles scented with cypress, a branch of yew, a silver chalice of fruit juice, and a silver tray of frosted white cakes.
Offerings: Food or other aid given to organizations that give aid to elders. Offer to spend time helping or keeping companionship with an elder.
Daily Meal: Allow the three eldest members of the community to choose the meal.

Invocation to the Elder Spirit

Hail, Old One,
Crone and Wise Man,
Silver of hair
And adamant of spirit,
Aged like fine wine
Through years of experience;
You who watch the young ones grow
And remember their path
And tell them the pitfalls ahead,
You who have made a friend
Of changing Time,
You whom Saturn has blessed
With a double circle,
You who keep the mysteries
And the secret knowledge,
You who mentor and teach,
Show us how to walk gracefully
Into the sunset of life.

(The chant for this day should be a wordless harmony. First the cakes are passed around, served in order of age, eldest first; then the juice is likewise shared. Then each member of the community, starting with the youngest, goes before each member who is past their second Saturn return, or if there are none the eldest among them, kneels, and asks for their blessing. After the next eldest has asked for the blessing of the eldest, the ritual is ended.)

Dealing with psychic attack

                          Dealing with psychic attack
Zhahai Stewart

What to do if you think you are being attacked.

1 – Question if it is really either imagination, or coming from within
yourself.  Something may be trying to get your attention, but it may not be
external, and by focussing on an external “enemy” you may be missing the
point.

2 – Check to see if you are yourself inadvertently sending something out;
maybe someone is just reflecting some energy back!  Nothing is gained if you
get into adversarial mode in that case.  Many people have been taught that
reflecting is the proper response.

3 – Put up a grounding shield.  Ground it out, send it to the Mother who
can recycle the energy.  Grounding is usually taught to every student. If you
don’t feel you can be a “conduit” safely, ground it by reflecting  it
downward to the Earth; that is a big target and easy to hit.  By  grounding
it out, you are protecting yourself, yet not being caught up in it.

What not to do.

1 – Figure out who is sending it and counter attack.  You might be wrong,
and may be starting a feud.  You might be right, but they may not realize
that they are “sending” so you may start a feud or cause unnecessary harm.
Even if you are right, you are escalating a feud, of which we have too many.
This is commonly discussed as a bad idea.

2 – Put up a reflective shield which will return the energy to the sender.
This is commonly discussed as a good idea, but we disagree.  We think this is
unwise.

For one thing, it is not necessary; if you can make an accurate return
reflection, you can certainly reflect it to Earth instead (where it can be
recycled).  There is no reason you should not be able to ground out more
energy than you can accurately reflect to the sender, if viewed properly.

For another, your accuracy in returning it may be less than perfect.  You
might hit close but not close enough; if you can’t reflect it to earth, you
are going to have trouble reflecting it to an unknown person.

Sometimes this is discussed as if once you return it, the sender will just
stop; because they will awaken to what they are doing, or because the
returning energy will be too much to handle. The thing which is seldom
mentioned is that if the sender (assuming there is one) was consciously
attacking, they will likely already be prepared with their own mirrors, etc.
Great, if we put near perfect mirrors at each end and pump in energy, maybe
we can get a psychic laser effect; guess who is just on the other side of the
mirrors to catch the intensified leak thru?

If they weren’t aware of sending, they will probably just assume they are
being attacked and take countermeasures.  If they follow the 3 steps above,
fine, nothing is damaged.  But many of them will immediately think they  have
to put up a defensive mirror, or maybe worse (see below; they may decide to
teach you a lesson for attacking them).  Few people naturally respond to
perceived attacks positively (especially if they are in such a bad mood
already as to be sending without even realizing it).

Another serious concern is getting drawn into a unacknowledged feud by       your
own weaknesses.  It is often agreed that one should reflect back exactly
what is received, without adding anything of one’s own.  But the same people
who advocate that may use terms implying “returning it with enthusiasm”.
There appears to be an easily tapped source of self-righteousness in most
people feeling attacked, and it is _very hard_ not to get drawn into
imagining, at some level, the satisfying effects of the energy going back to
the attacker; that draws one into a “counter-attack” even without realizing
it.  Grounding it does not.

Watch for yourself when people are discussing “returning to sender”; see if
there isn’t very often a hidden desire for revenge or retribution lurking
there grasping for their “control panel” – and deflecting their normal
attempts at staying centered by claiming to do no more than is “justified”.
Justified is not the question; self knowledge and balance are.

There is another thread which shows up often in discussions like these; the
need to “teach the sender a lesson”.  In some cases, I have even heard this
justified as “protecting the community”.  This way lies many… ….PRINT D did
the goddess give you an “agent of threefold return” marshall’s badge, that
exempts you from any consequences “because you are just an agent”?  That
hubris is gonna teach some hard lessons, but the self appointed marshall may
be the major recipient.  It would be a little bit healthier to just shed the
self-righteousness and call it an ego driven feud.  “Teaching them a lesson”
gets filed under the pitfalls of righteousness, the ways that one’s own
weaknesses seduce one.

Also consider, what if despite your initial impression, the negative energy
is really coming from inside, from part of you?  Are you going to be better
off “reflecting it back” (maybe with additional conscious or  unconscious
oomph) or grounding it?  “Gee, I returned it but good, and now  they have
stepped it up; the sender really needs a lesson!”.  That may be more true
than you know, bucko.

Notice that nowhere do we say that one has no “right” to put up a
reflective shield; of course one does, and is fully justified.  Also,
possibly, unwise. There is a distinction between what one has a “right” to do
in “self defense”, and what is wise to get drawn into.  Reflecting it is
neither necessary, nor likely to produce positive results, but if _that
itself_ is the lesson to  be learned, what can I say?  Each chooses their own
path, and that is as it should be.  At least if one has considered the above,
one should know what they are stepping into.

Dressing A Candle

Dressing A Candle

Candles have been used for many many years in rituals, to set an atmosphere and help to focus on a desired result of a the ritual.  Here are steps to to take
when dressing a candle for a ritual or for requesting a desired result.When
working with candles, you will see that no two candles are alike, they each
have their own character. (drip, flame, sound )

* Choose the candle to be used : type and color ( green for money, black/
white for cleansing).

* Cleanse the candle from prior energies. Here are some suggestions for
cleansing:
A: Holy water
B: Sea salt
C: Pure soap
D: Baby oil

* Bless / Consecrate your oil to be used.

* State and engrave (if desired) what the candle is to represent (money,
love, job, taking away unwanted habits, etc.)

* Anoint the candle with the oil you have chosen (it is important to focus on
your desire when doing this).
A: — To achieve : start on the top to the middle in a downward
motion(stop) then go the bottom to the middle in an upward motion(stop).
B: — To banish : start in the middle to top (stop) then go from the middle
to the bottom (stop).
Do not use a back and forth motion, it defeats the purpose.

* Bless / Consecrate the candle.

Your candle is now ready to use. Light your candle with an incense of your
desire or deity. Do not use matches, a lighter or incense should be used.
honestly I know not why, just that the sulfur is the problem. But every
book  I have read states this, and I have read many.)

Meditate as long as possible (many don’t have a lot of time past 15min.) on
your desired outcome while your candle is burning. Let the candle burn till the
end.

If and when you need to extinguish your candle, snuff it out or swipe your
hand enough to let the air blow it out. Do not blow or pinch it out. As blowing
it out blows your desires away from you and pinching it out also pinches out
your desires.

Each time we emerge
Into your sacred light.

Fingers play across our eyes
That we may blink, and sting
The tears from them,
And open them again to see
Your golden world break
Over the eastern horizon.

Night of the White Candles

Imbolc/Candlemas Comments

Night of the White Candles

Night of lit white candles darkness turned into light
“everything she touches changes”
feast of waxing flame
fire of heart and hearth
fire on the mind
flickering of spark
quickening of air
warming into inspiration
thawing in her innocence
snow into desire
“she shines for all of us
she burns within us all”
sipral heat of life
“she shines for all of us
within us all she burns”
the fires to create
“she shines in all of us
she burns us all within”
awakening arising is her need
“she shines for all of us
she burns within us all”
Her candle is our only source
