Wednesday Is Ruled By Mercury

 

Wednesdays are wild and wacky days. They are for communication, change, cunning, and the arts. This is a Mercury day, and just its patron god this day is full of contradictions, change, and excitement. Some suggestions for Wednesday enchantments would include:

  • Pulling a little Wednesday color magic into your life by wearing purples or orange

 

  • Carrying a multipurpose agate with you and tapping into its various charms

 

  • Working with magical plants such as the fern for protection. This plant will also boost the power of any other magical plants with which it is arranged.

 

  • Incorporating lavender into charms and spells for transformation

 

  • Using the charming scent of lily of the valley to improve your memory, or working with the aspen tree for communication

 

  • Calling on Athena, patron of arts and crafts, for inspiration for a new project

 

  • Fanning out a Tarot spell to increase you creativity

 

  • Calling on Hermes on a Wednesday night to bring movement and good luck into your life

Must Dos for Wednesdays

Must Dos for Wednesdays

 

Be bold and daring today! Expand your knowledge of the Craft by working with the planetary energies of Mercury on this multifaceted day of the week. Consider the Greco-Roman gods Mercury and Hermes and all of the many lessons they have for you. Embrace change and movement, and work on your communication techniques. Conjure up a little good luck for yourself with that Mercury dime spell. Call on Athena to inspire you to try magickal arts and crafts and to be more creative in your own spellwork and witchery.

Meditate on Odin and see what you can discover about him. I wonder what sort of fabulous and fascinating magickal wisdom you will uncover? Odin is a shaman, after all; he may appear in many guises and faces. I guarantee that he will make you laugh at yourself before he is through with you, but you will learn. It’s up to you what you do with that knowledge. Will you let it shapeshift into wisdom?

Wednesday is the wild and wily day of the week, so try to go with the flow; don’t fight the quirky energies of the day. Most importantly, follow your heart, and always keep a good sense of humor, because of Wednesdays you will really need it.

Your Moon Astrology Forecast For March 2015

Your Moon Astrology Forecast For March 2015

by Matthew Currie

MARCH! It sounds like an order, doesn’t it? Well, if it is an order, no one is particularly obeying. In the Northern Hemisphere everyone gets excited because it’s supposed to be the first month of Spring. In the Southern Hemisphere it’s the alleged start of Autumn. In Ecuador? Business as usual, mostly. Really though, March often delivers the promise of hope for positive change without quite delivering. Why is that? Because maybe you should be paying more attention to the Void of Course Moon, that’s why! Read on…

***

This month, Mercury enters Pisces and gets a bit fuzzy with the details, Venus enters Taurus and starts thinking about finally settling down after a wild ride in Aries, and Saturn goes retrograde at almost-but-not-quite 5 degrees Sagittarius (look out, late Scorpio, Saturn’s coming back!).

March 20th also sees the first Solar Eclipse of 2015, just half a day before the Sun enters Aries. If that sounds significant to you… you’d probably be right. Come back later to that date for details.

As always, the devil is in the details, and despite all the larger transits happening, you’ve got to keep an eye on The Moon… particularly when it’s a Void of Course Moon. In general though, just try to avoid starting or completing any important projects or making important agreements when the Moon is Void and you’ll be all right.

***

Below is a listing for Void Of Course (VOC) Moon times and dates for the month of March 2015

The particularly long and awful Voids are marked with **

All times are Eastern Standard, or as they say in New York, “Hey, you figger out whatever the time one is in your Podunk town and deal with it, pal. I ain’t got time to do yer math for ya.”

March 1, 2015 6:34 PM Moon enters Leo
March 3, 2015 3:47 AM Moon opposite Mercury V/C
March 4, 2015 6:58 AM Moon enters Virgo
March 5, 2015 1:36 PM Moon trine Pluto V/C**
March 6, 2015 7:52 PM Moon enters Libra

*** Daylight Saving Time begins *** (which sucks if you’re as big a fan of sleeping in late as I am)

March 8, 2015 9:24 PM Moon trine Mercury V/C
March 9, 2015 9:10 AM Moon enters Scorpio
March 11, 2015 3:46 PM Moon square Mercury V/C
March 11, 2015 7:30 PM Moon enters Sagittarius
March 13, 2015 7:11 PM Moon trine Venus V/C
March 14, 2015 2:40 AM Moon enters Capricorn

Mercury enters Pisces. Write poetry, not technical reports, dude.

March 16, 2015 4:02 AM Moon square Venus V/C
March 16, 2015 6:14 AM Moon enters Aquarius
March 17, 2015 2:18 PM Moon sextile Mars V/C
March 18, 2015 6:58 AM Moon enters Pisces

Venus enters Taurus. Workplaces everywhere descend into chaos as people start taking more than their fair share of the doughnuts.

March 20, 2015 5:36 AM Sun conjunct Moon V/C

Hey, it’s Eclipse Day! A dragon swallows the Sun and threatens all life on Earth, or you know, maybe not. Also, the Sun enters Aries.

March 20, 2015 6:28 AM Moon enters Aries
March 21, 2015 6:51 PM Moon conjunct Mars V/C
March 22, 2015 6:40 AM Moon enters Taurus

Wednesday Magickal Potions, Philter & Oils – Clear Communication Philter

Wednesday Magickal Potions, Philter & Oils – Clear Communication Philter

 

Today is the time to create philters and potions that work in harmony with Mercury’s planetary energy. Mercury has many moods and magickal qualities, including communication, movement, and precision, so I thought that today would be the most opportune time to create a philter for clear communication. This philter recipe will assist you in making your words heard and to get the correct message across loud and clear.

 

Clear Communication Philter

  • One small decorative glass bottle
  • Base oil, approximately Vs cup almond oil (almond aligns with Mercury)
  • Clean dropper
  • 3 drops lavender oil
  • 3 drops bergamot oil
  • red clover for good luck (another Mercury plant)
  • Small chip of aventurine for creativity
  • 6 inches thin orange or purple satin ribbon
  • 1 small metal magickal charm or talisman that you feel coordinates with communication of your choosing
  • A label and a pen (to list the ingredients and to decorate and mark the bottle)

 

Pour the base oil into the bottle until you have filled it three quarters of the way full. Add the essential oils one at a time. Next, add the crystal and the clover. Close up the bottle with the lid, place your fingers over the lid, and carefully shake up the mixture. Hold up the mixture to the sunlight and allow the light of Wednesday’s sun to illuminate the philter within.

 

Wipe off the outside of the bottle and use the label to list the ingredients and the use of this potion. Decorate the bottle by drawing the symbol of Mercury (~) or even a winged foot. If you have other magickal symbols you would like to use, add these on the label. Attach the label to the glass bottle and finish up by threading the metal charm onto the orange or purple ribbon and then tying the ribbon around the neck of the bottle.

 

As you finish tying on the bow, hold the bottle in your hands and concentrate on the visualization that your aura around your throat and face is pulsing bright golden orange. Your words are unmistakably heard and your meaning is clearly comprehended; envision this outcome and nothing else. Now send all that energy from your visualization into the philter bottle that you hold in your hands. Take a deep breath, hold it for three counts, and then blow it out slowly. Now, repeat the charm below:

 

May the fleet-footed god hear my plea

Grant clear communication now to me

Empower this brew with magickal power

I bless this philter in this time and hour

Using a bit of Wednesday’s witchery

As I do will it, so mote it be!

 

Set aside the philter bottle, and clean up the supplies. Ground and center yourself. Eat a few crackers or do something physical. Make sure to store the philter in a dark, dry place out of the reach of children.

DAILY MAGICKAL APPLICATIONS FOR WEDNESDAY

DAILY MAGICKAL APPLICATIONS FOR WEDNESDAY

 

To the Romans, this day was called Dies Mercurii, or “Mercury’s day” Mercury was a popular character in the Roman pantheon. A messenger of the gods, he presided over commerce, trade, and anything that required skill or dexterity. The Celts also worshiped Mercury and eventually equated him with the Norse god Odin (some spelling variations on this name include Wotan, Wodin, and Wodan). In Norse mythologies, Odin, like Mercury, is associated with poetry and music. Interestingly enough, both Odin and Mercury were regarded as psychopomps, or the leaders of souls, in their individual mythologies.

 
Odin, one of the main gods in Norse mythology, was constantly seeking wisdom. He traveled the world in disguise as a one-eyed man with a long gray beard, wearing an old, beat-up hat and carrying a staff or a spear (which brings to my mind images of Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings). In the Old English language, this day of Mercury evolved into Wodnes daeg, “Woden’s day,” or Wednesday.

 
Wednesday carries all of the planetary and magickal energies and associations of the witty and nimble god Mercury himself. Some of these mercurial traits included good communication skills, cleverness, intelligence, creativity, business sense, writing, artistic talent, trickiness, and thievery. And don’t forget all of those wise and enigmatic qualities associated with the Norse god Odin/Wodin, not to mention the goddess Athena’s contributions of music, the arts, handmade crafts, and writing. Wednesdays afford excellent opportunities for seeking wisdom, changing your circumstances, and improving your skills, be they in trade and commerce, music and art, or in communication and writing.
