The Wicca Book of Days for Saturday, October 3rd – Wine for Well-being

Gothic Comments
Wine for Well-being

Although its details have been obscured by the passing of time, it is likely that a festival name the Meditrinalia was celebrated in Rome on this day. Essentially a wine festival, when all vintages were enjoyed, the Meditrinalia was dedicated to meditrina, a Roman goddess of healing who was said to use wine, herbs and magick as curatives. As they imbibed people recited the following words: novum vetus vinum bibo, novo veteri, morbo medeor (Latin for “new and old wine I drink, of disease new and old I’m cured”).


The Empress

Today, editate on the major arcana Tarot card of the Empress (number III). A crowned and enthroned woman is pictured holding a scepter in her right hand, often surrounded by fertility symbols. She signifies the pinnacle of feminine achievement on Earth, and may also represent female fecundity.

Your Daily Charm for September 1st is Abracadabra

Your Charm for Today

Today’s Meaning:

The most powerful of all talisman indicating you or someone close to you will recover from an infection.

General Description:

One of the most famous of all talismans, and used as a magical formula by the Gnostics in Rome for invoking the aid of beneficent spirits against disease, misfortune and death. Sammonieus, the celebrated Gnostic physician; instructed that the letters of this magical triangle which he used for curing agues and fevers, were to be written on paper, folded into the shape of a cross, worn for nine days suspended from the neck, and, before sunrise, cast behind the patient into a stream running eastward. It was also a most popular charm in the middle ages. During the Great Plague, 1665, great numbers of these amulets were worn as supposed safeguards against infection.

Healing Spell

Lady Kwan Yin is an oriental Goddess of healing. I also work with Sirona who is a Celtic healing Goddess. They have helped me with everything from a bad cut on my finger to helping out of a period of deep depression and everything in between. This spell should not be attempted by a novice. If you want to use it and don’t know how please write to me before starting it. Thank you. This spell should be used as an aid to help the treatment a doctor has prescribed do more good. It will not cure what ever illness or aliment you or another has. If you are depressed see a doctor or other professional health person you feel comfortable with. This is spell is not to be used in place of seeking medical help when it is needed.

For this spell you should have:

Green Candle to empower

Sandalwood Oil to bless it with

This is dedicated to anyone who needs healing be it mind, body, spirit or any combination of them. Blessed Be

Either do the spell in a scared space or Concreted Circle

You will repeat the spell three times. Wet your index finger on your power hand (the hand you use to write with) with the Sandalwood oil use it to draw a Pentagram on the candle first on the top then on the bottom and lastly on middle of the candle.


Kwan Yin, Sirona, Ancient Powers of Air, Fire, Water and Earth,

Gather around me (persons name) at my (their) hearth.

Help heal what is keeping me (them) down,

So I (they) might feel more like being up and around.

So Mote It Be

Simple Healing Spell

Kwan Yin a.k.a Quan Yan is an oriental healing Goddess. Sirona is a Celtic healing Goddess. I wrote and have used this spell many times over the years with very good results from it. It is flexible enough for you to add whoever’s name and illness or injury into the spell to make it specific for the person you are doing it for. It can also be used to charm a healing stone, such as a Bloodstone, to give to a person that needs something long-term to help their health improve.


Repeat spell three times always using the same wording. Where the () are is where you put in the person’s name and illness or injury you are working the spell for. Also play around with the wording a little if you want to make the spell come more from your heart.

Kwan Yin, Sirona, Ancient powers of Air, Water, Fire and Earth;

Gather around (____) at their hearth.

Help heal the (____) that is keeping them down;

So their health returns and they feel up to moving around.

Importance of Taking ME TIME

Yes I know this sounds great and is easier said than done but….

Taking time for yourself even if it is just fifteen minutes a day for you really to enjoy something that’s really important to just you and no one else. Is not only for essential to your mental well being but it is important for your Spiritual well being and physical health also.

It can be as easy as going for a short walk around your yard or down the block, reading a few pages in that book you always wanted to read or sitting in the sun (for 20 minutes with no sunblock on your face-which will give you your daily supply of vitamin D according to a study conducted by the American Medical Association) or start a new hobby or surf the web for a topic that interests you (book mark the search page so you can go back to it easily to read some of the things it brought up) or
take a relaxing shower or bath or… well I think you catch my drift by now. It should be something you can do alone and be totally selfish with that time.

I have found by setting a specific time every day for the first couple of months or so and then plan my day around it that I did get my, me time. Granted when my children were young and/or my Familiar was a kitten or puppy; I ether got up 15-30 minutes earlier or stayed up 15 minutes or so past the time I would have gone to bed. But the slight amount of less sleep was paid off by me having more energy throughout the day and I wasn’t as stressed, frustrated or quick to anger on the days
I made sure to do this as compared to days when I didn’t do it.

Try it daily for two weeks and see if it makes a difference to you. When I took the time in morning I used it as a meditation time to get to know myself better. Write down a couple of lines a day in a notebook (journaling to me always sounds like a task I HAVE to do…lol) to track how your life maybe changing. It doesn’t have to be Earth shattering maybe one less yawn during the day is a start or being able to smile easier the next time someone spills that full glass of whatever for the 10th time in the same day…lol

Sending positive energy to help anyone who wants to under take this journey. Please if you feel you want to share how you are feeling about yourself and the world in general after the first two weeks or anytime leave a comment. Your comment may inspire someone else to do this.

Blessings and Above all else ENJOY your life!!!!

Crystal of the Day – Malachite

Crystal of the Day – Malachite


Steady pulsing electromagnetic energy. (High copper content) Malachite and azurite are the same chemical, practically, Copper Carbonate. The only difference is the ordering of the elements in the molecule. On brow: Stimulates physical and psychic vision, concentration. For heart and solar plexus centers: Stomach, liver, kidney stones, lungs, immune system, radiation, MS, circulation. Powerful healer with azurite or chrysocolla for healing: Releases and draws out pain, inflammation, depression, anger; heals blocks. Protects well by powerfully cleaning the auric field, rapidly absorbing undesirable energies, including: computer, TV, and other radiation, etc. Place in the 4 corners of a room to cleanse carpet toxins/gases. Clean very frequently — daily if possible! . Often variegated and is one of the basic ores of Copper. Should be used with extreme care because it can amplify negative qualities. Caution must always be used when wearing it as jewelry. However, Malachite also magnifies the positive, and so it is useful if your mood is definitely on the upswing. It should not be used in healing without careful consideration of who is doing the healing. It is useful for relaxation and neurological disorders as well as tissue regeneration. It is said to awaken healing qualities and useful in fighting mental illnesses. Said to stimulate the optic nerve, help the pancreas, spleen, parathyroid, and help dyslexia. People living near nuclear power plants should keep pieces of Malachite in their homes, since Malachite may expel plutonium. A warning: Malachite in raw form has dust particles that are highly toxic and their ingestion should be avoided.

Balancing Ourselves

Balancing Ourselves

Author:   Moonspider   

Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.

So says the line from the Charge. Does this mean we are wishy-washy? Quite the contrary. It indicates a balance that we all must come to deal with everyday of our lives, magickally and mundanely. If we don’t we become unbalanced and unhealthy.

Because of this, we must recognize a lack of balance in others we come in contact with daily. They have their own sh*t to deal with, and they can be off too. And, from time to time, people do need sympathy and understanding. Given appropriately this can be very helpful and therapeutic. It is when compassionate people go overboard and enable the suffering to go on that it is inappropriate.

I will share another segment of my own experience with this. Some of you may know that in 1998 my world got turned upside-down with emergency brain surgery. Parts of that are in other essays here on The Voice, so I won’t rehash it all.

In a nutshell, a sinus infection traveled (yes, infections can move), it jumped the protective blood-brain barrier. Not a good thing since blood and its products are caustic to brain tissue. This caused an abscess (simply a puss-ball). So, I took ill at work while talking to a colleague, lost consciousness, woke up 2 1/2 days later with what resembled half a yarmulke on my head. Plus my head felt like it had been run over by an 18-wheeler.

I definitely needed compassion. I received it. Friends (and at times like these you find out who they really are) were great during the healing process. Much magick was done for me, and folks were understanding. Best of all, they treated me like me. Which is probably the most helpful in all healing situations.

Some friends, well-intentioned, kept after that, how are you, you know what I mean. Well that was fine for a while, but it’s over. I am not my abscess. We are not our illnesses. These times are tools to learn with. And yes, I did learn a great deal about myself during this period. As I should have. You can’t have an experience like this and not.

Can I ever forget it? No. I mean I have a j-hook shaped scar crowning my head to remind me of it. Life does go back to normal, whatever normal is. After years of working with mental health related areas, normal is relative.

I will always be grateful for the compassion bestowed on me by the community. It was necessary. It has also helped me be compassionate to people who need it. I’ve also been able to help others who’ve had brain surgery, seizure activity and stroke, since many experiences have related aspects.

So, my compassion is not limited to this community alone. As it shouldn’t. We are a Witch always, not just at Sabbats and Esbats. This comment likened to the Sunday, or Christmas Christian. Though I found true compassion from many communities, Pagan and not, during my healing process. I was dealt with as a person who needed help.

And, I got it. My healing was very rapid. Within less than a week I was out of the hospital. Because I was now prone to seizure activity I could not drive for 3 months. People were wonderful at keeping in contact however they could. Picked me up and took me places I wouldn’t have been able to get to otherwise. I try and remember this as I work.

Actually it fits in perfectly with the work that I do as a librarian for a state agency. My customers have problems, that need to be solved with information. Because of the work our agency does, I need to be aware that the customer needs the information to help a client. They are compassionate to the client. I in turn, need to be compassionate about both needs, since what I will provide will ultimately effect both of them. And, myself to a certain degree. I can’t handle all the information that I come in contact with, without being affected by it.

I need to be compassionate to my own needs too. This does not mean feeling sorry for ones’ self. Just a realistic understanding of what you can reasonably deal with.

Remember the flip side to compassion is power as we utter the Charge. We have to understand both. My own experience certainly has made me more powerful as a person. Understand this, you can face anything. And, I do mean anything.

In my own healing process, I had to face every single demon I had. Real or imagined. I took power back from them. They had been leeching off vital energies from me. It was the most terrifying, exhilarating, and easy thing I’d done.

Terrifying, because who really likes confrontation of anything, much less your own demons? Why do we create such monsters for ourselves? Growth, I suppose.

Exhilarating, because of the freedom it gave me. Now I am unencumbered by nonsense that had been hanging on—some of it for a lifetime.

Easy, yes, easy. Ultimately it was the easiest thing in the world for me to do. What else did I have to do? I was in the hospital for a week, drugs kept me awake for half of that, probably hallucinating for half of that. Great breeding ground for demons. One by one they came. When you face a demon squarely in the eye, it usually dissolves. You may have to talk to it, hit it, or, laugh at it. Demons don’t know what to do with laughter. Laughter is great healing medicine.

What did this leave me? A much more powerful person. Things that used to bother me don’t. Oh, do I get annoyed, sure, especially at stupidity. I’ve become much more cognizant of our internal power. For remember this. No matter how much others want to help, the only one who can truly help you is you. With others being compassionate, especially at trying times, it makes that process easier.

Please remember that power is knowing just the right amount of energy to use. A truly powerful person rarely exerts much energy. They simply know how to tap the source. The power is within. Be sympathetic to those in need, for you never know when you will need it, too. Both, power and compassion, are achieved, not owned¹.

Calendar of the Moon for May 20th

Calendar of the Moon

20 Huath/Thargelion

Day of Diancecht

Colors: Red and white
Element: Water
Altar: Upon cloth of red and white set out the medical supplies for the house to be blessed, with a red candle, incense of soothing herbs, a pitcher of clean water, and healing stones.
Offerings: Take some kind of medical training.
Daily Meal: Vegan.

Invocation to Diancecht

Healer of wounds, we call to thee,
Bless our flesh that tears,
Bless our blood that spills,
Bless our bones that break,
Bless our body that succumbs to invaders.
Bless the hands that bind and stitch,
Bless the voice that soothes and calms,
Bless the medicine that pits itself
Against pain, against fever, against invasion
By all that would devour us.
Bless the tools of the healer’s trade,
That they may be clean and whole.
Bless the mind of the healer,
That it may clearly see what must be done.
Bless the spirit of the healer,
That it may not flinch from ugliness or pain.
Bless the heart of the healer,
That no matter how great the wounds
Nor how sorrowful the plight
They will not harden their heart
And treat the wounded without compassion
In order to protect their own softness.
Help us to remember, O Diancecht,
Healer of the Druid’s grove,
That healers must have their own courage,
Which is much harder to bear
Than that of any warrior.
(Those in the House who are healers of any kind should come forward and be anointed with the water, cleansed with the fire and incense and stones, and bear the supplies to their place.)
