A Thought for Today

daefc8d1d962f8e5fb98e0748890d9c3

Whether you are sitting around a fire or just sitting around at home it’s always a good time to tell the younger ones stories of how it was back when you were their age. I did this with my children and now with my grandchildren and they all get a good laugh at how old I sound. Especially when I tell them about only having 2 computers in my high school and one was a glorified typewriter and calculator in the library…lol

Have fun write the stories down so they are not lost to the ages when you can no longer tell them yourself.

Blessed be.

A Spell for Protection on the 4th of July

I call  upon the Horned God and Mother  Earth,

To keep myself and my family safe as we have fun either away from or at our hearth.

To keep those who are traveling under your watchful eyes

That we might all be safe and see the fireworks or stars in the sky.

So mote it be.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July brothers and sisters.

Celtic Tree Months

The Celtic Tree Calendar is a calendar with thirteen lunar divisions. Most contemporary Pagans use fixed dates for each “month”, rather than following the waxing and waninglunar cycle. If this was done, eventually the calendar would fall out of sync with the Gregorian year, because some calendar years have 12 full moons and others have 13. The modern tree calendar is based on a concept that letters in the ancient Celtic Ogham alphabet corresponded to a tree.

Although you don’t have to follow a Celtic path to celebrate the Celtic tree calendar months, you’ll find that each of the themes in the Celtic tree months ties strongly to Celtic culture and mythology.

Some of the Full Moon Names for July

Northern Hemisphere

July Blue Moon July FM 2 July FM

July: The Buck Moon
Buck deer start growing velvety hair-covered antlers in July. Frequent thunderstorms in the New England area also resulted in the name Thunder Moon. Some tribes also used Hay Moon.

The Full Buck Moon – July July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon.

July has Two Full Moons

The first Full Moon is on July 1, 2015 and goes by various names depending on what tradition you look up. There will be another post with some of the names for this full Moon in it.

The second full Moon is on July 31, 2015 and is known as a Blue Moon. Whenever there are two full Moons in the same month, the second is always called the Blue Moon. This usually happens once a year.

This is why the ancient Celtics, Native Americans, Mayans, ancient Egyptians and other older culture yearly calendar had thirteen months. The first and last day of the month was on a full Moon. These months were approximately twenty-nine days long. There was not anything like leap year because it was not needed. Many Pagan traditions still honor the thirteen-month year when celebrating Esbats and Sabbats. I personally follow a thirteen-month calendar for Esbats as I have incorporated many Celtic traditions in my Craft and spirituality.

Guru Purnima (India) [July Full Moon]

This Full Moon is Guru Purnima, a festival traditionally celebrated in India. The word guru is derived from two Sanskrit words, Gu means “ignorance,” Ru means “the remover of ignorance”; thus the one who removes our ignorance is a guru. On this day, followers pay their regards to their guru or spiritual guide, who many believe is a necessary part of their lives. The festival is common to all traditions in Hinduism because it is dedicated to respect for their religious teachers and leaders. Hindus also celebrate it in honor of the great sage Vyasa, who is seen as one of the greatest gurus in ancient Hindu traditions, and floral offerings and symbolic gifts are given away in his name. Vyasa was not only believed to have been born on this day, but also to have started writing Brahma Sutras, a major religious text at this time. Recitations of these sutras, dedicated to him, are organized on this day.

This would be a good day to write a letter to someone who has helped you on your spiritual path, whether or not you call them a guru. If they are no longer alive, write the letter and burn it while thinking about them.

Phases of the Moon and Their Psychic Associations

Phases of the Moon and Their Psychic Associations

The different phases of the moon do have an effect on your psychic talents. Here is the information, along with tips for working with your divinatory tools, such as runes or the tarot. Consider how this lunar phase/psychic information will affect the spells that you cast on a Monday. It will all depend on what phase the moon is in when you cast, which means you have lots to learn and plenty to experiment with. There are many layers to witchery and magick. The best way to up your game and to increase your skills is to practice, experiment, and see how the magick works for you.

FIRST QUARTER: (new moon to the waxing half moon) Now is the time when your psychic power is starting to build; you may feel more “tuned in” and more compassionate and sensitive to other people’s emotions. Your dreams and their divinatory meanings become clearer. You may notice that your animal allies, or totem animals, show up more in your life, so pay attention to their messages. Work your divinatory tools now to get a clear picture of what is beginning to unfold in your life at the present time.

SECOND QUARTER: (waxing half moon to the full moon) During this lunar phase, your emotions and senses get turned up to “high.” (Think of it as riding a psychic wave of sorts: it builds as the full moon gets closer, peaks, and then you start to ride downward.) Precognitive dreaming is more likely to happen during this particular lunar phase. At the full moon phase itself, you will probably notice everything in a more detailed and magickal way, so work with it when it hits. Intuition and clairvoyance abilities will peak as the moon waxes to full. Employ your favorite divinatory tools now to see the past, present, and future.

THIRD QUARTER: (day after the full moon until the waning half moon) As the moon wanes, the focus begins to turn within. Pay attention to your inner voice-your instincts and gut hunches. This is not the time to ignore that inner monologue. You may find that you are “hearing between the lines,” meaning you are hearing or sensing what is unspoken, so think before you speak. Ride the back of this wave of lunar energy and realize that the energies around you can be used to your benefit. Tune in to your own spirit and meditate. Work with divinatory tools now to see what is hidden from you.

FOURTH QUARTER: (waning half moon until the new moon) At this point of the moon phase, some folks may find that their psychic talents go on holiday, or you may notice that they come howling in with an all-out assault on your senses. The reason for this is, I believe, that during this last waning lunar phase, all psychic work turns within. This often forces a person to contemplation, and it nudges them into turning their psychic abilities and all that focus within. Then they gain the opportunity for self-discovery. discovery. Work with your divinatory tools now to gain an appreciation for what events and people have led you to this point of your life. By looking to the past, we can acquire a good overview on what has brought us to the point we are standing at now Then we may gain understanding, wisdom, and insight.
