Daily Magickal Applications for Wednesday

Fantasy Comments & Graphics

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.

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

Your Weekly Astrology: December 8-14, 2014

Weekly Astrology: December 8-14, 2014

Believe you can and you’re halfway there…

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of venus, sagittarius, mercury, love, capricorn, astrology

 

Faith becomes more personal this week, while love becomes more cautious — and then turns cautiously optimistic.

Read on to see how you can best navigate the twists and turns behind this week’s cosmic movement.

Monday, Dec. 8: Sun conjunct Mercury in Sagittarius and Jupiter Retrograde

On Monday, the Sun in truth-seeking Sagittarius will conjunct Mercury, while Jupiter, the planet of faith, turns retrograde. With Jupiter in Leo in retrograde, you might decide to go within and really consider what your faith and personal beliefs are.

Wednesday, Dec. 10: Venus in Capricorn

Then, on Wednesday, love planet Venus enters serious Capricorn, where she’ll remain until Jan. 3, 2015. With Venus in Capricorn, you might feel more insecure and cautious in matters of the heart, but one thing is certain: If you love someone, you’ll be committed to making it work for the long haul. The responsibility associated with partnerships will be emphasized.

Friday, Dec. 12 and Sunday, Dec. 14: Mercury trine Jupiter; Sun trine Jupiter; Venus in Capricorn sextile Neptune

On Friday, Mercury in Sagittarius will trine Jupiter, followed by the Sun trining Jupiter on Sunday. You’ll express your most adventurous “glass half full” thoughts to the world, and in many ways your joy factor will be contagious. Even romantic matters become blissful because Venus will be at a perfect sextile to Neptune. You’ll feel spiritually connected to the one you love.

POTIONS, PHILTERS & OILS FOR WEDNESDAY


Celtic Comments & Graphics

POTIONS, PHILTERS & OILS FOR WEDNESDAY

 

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
• 1 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.
