Current Moon Phase for July 9th – New Moon

New Moon

(waxing/10% illumination)

The New Moon is a time best suited for new beginnings! For the first 48 hours following the exact time of the New Moon each month, a window of opportunity opens for making wishes that, if noted, come true in the days and months ahead. There is a tremendous amount of enthusiasm in the atmosphere, making it a great time to go forward and begin projects that you feel instinctively attracted to initiating. Follow your impulses and let yourself make new starts in areas that are important to you.

Current Moon Phase for Saturday, July 6th – Waning Crescent

Crescent Moon

(waning /8% illumination)

This is a time to rest, reevaluate and reflect, pulling back into yourself to reconnect with inner sources of strength. Now is not a time to initiate anything new. It’s a phase suited to spending time with friends and getting in touch with the “big picture.” A window of opportunity exists for seeing your life objectively and becoming aware of what is important to you. At this point, what are your dreams and aspirations? What larger goals can you aspire to that will bring vitality and excitement into your life? This is a time for resting and gaining inner strength to prepare for a new cycle.

Calendar of the Sun for July 5th

Calendar of the Sun

5 Haymonath

Aphelion Day

Color: Gold
Element: Fire
Altar: On cloth of black place a single gold sun, flanked by five golden candles.
Offerings: Contemplate solitude.
Daily Meal: Fasting today, until Hesperis.

Aphelion Invocation

On this day the Sun swings far from the Earth his lover,
And the two lovers part for a time,
For in any connection there must be spaces
As well as closeness.
For even as the Sun spins far away,
We can feel its brightness
As if it had never left.
And so it is with all connections that are true:
Our loved ones and our gods,
That we feel them even when they are absent,
And that shining echo of their spirits in our lives
Gives us the hope that we need
To wait for them to draw near again,
Even as the Sun will draw near to the Earth once more
And the two smile upon each other yet again.

Chant:
Look for the spaces between our bodies
Look for the openings between our minds
Listen for the places where the wind enters
It’s the way that the Gods find their way through time.

(All sit on the floor in silence for a time, being careful to leave as much space as possible between each other, and meditate on solitude and being apart from others. For the rest of the day, work should be done alone in silence, with as little speaking as possible.)

Today’s Is Going To Be A Little Different……

I hope you don’t mind since it is a holiday. I figure I can slide by because I happen to be the only one here today. I have some things I want to do today. I am sure you can understand. I am going to put on several different kinds of magick. Some you  might have heard of and some you might not. Then I will put on some spells or homemade recipes. It seems ya’ll are in the mood for recipes right now. Have we spelled you out? That didn’t make a lick of sense did it?

Anyway you know what I am up too. Just goofing off! I wish more of you would ask question. You won’t disturb me at all. I would love to get to know you. If you want to ask, ask away. Also it doesn’t have to be during an “Ask A Witch” session either. You can ask anytime. I will do my best to answer you.

 I hope everyone has a very Safe & Happy 4th!

Goddess Bless The U. S. A.!

Today’s I Ching for July 3rd is 14: Abundant Blessings

14: Abundant Blessings

Wednesday, Jul 3rd, 2013

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

 

Supreme success! Like the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, a person whose fortunes have turned for the better shines as bright. At the core of this success lies unselfishness and modesty, for it is the tendency of a flexible or yielding nature to bind powerful forces to it, particularly when prosperity begins to manifest. When power is wielded with grace and dignity, there is supreme success and great abundance!

Ah, but be careful. Along with any accumulation of wealth or influence can come pride and arrogance. Fight such tendencies if you intend to continue enjoying your bliss. Stay attentive enough to manage your affairs well. And remember that while material prosperity certainly beats the alternative, it is only one of many elements of a satisfying life.

Calendar of the Sun for July 3rd

Calendar of the Sun

Solstitium

Colors: Green and gold
Element: Earth
Altar: Upon cloth of green and gold set flowers and herbs in pots, a bowl of rainwater, a large pitcher of manure tea, and several empty baskets.
Offerings: Water and fertilizer, to be added to the garden.
Daily Meal: Vegetarian.

Solstitium Invocation

Earth, you begin to give forth your bounty!
Like the maiden blossoming into the mother,
Like the youth growing into the father,
You yield your children up to us
For our sustenance and health,
As we are also your children.
We will not waste your gifts!
We will nurture what you bring forth
With the labor of our hands,
That those gifts shall be sustained
Year after year, and that you shall
Never be exhausted.
We will not be ungrateful, O Earth whose life is ours,
But we will give back as much as we take,
For this is the way of balance.

Chant:
Life harnessed
Call the sun to us
Sacred harvest
You are one with us

(Two who have been chosen to do the work of the ritual take up the rainwater and the manure tea, and carry them out to the garden, where they are ceremonially poured around the roots of the herbs and vegetables. All others follow with the empty baskets, and harvest some thing from the garden, whether a token or a main part of the next meal. After this, each should do some part of the work of further watering, or fertilizing, or mulching, to give back to the earth as much as is taken away.)
