Celebrate Mothers Day with your Dear Mother

Mothers Day is the perfect day to celebrate
the joys of having a mother. It is the time
to make amends for not being able to spend
quality time with her. So turn your wrongs
right by making all efforts to give a perfect
Mothers Day to your mother. Think about her
likes and dislikes about gifts and idea on
celebration and act accordingly. Strive to make
Mothers Day absolutely hassle free for your mother
and take the responsibilities on yourself for a day.
Pamper her a little on this special day of hers
just as she pampers you all the year round.
Give her a warm hug and a big kiss as you wish
her a Very Happy Mothers Day!

My Mother’s Day Feng Shui Ritual

My Mother’s Day Feng Shui Ritual

Plants and flowers make this Taurus mama happy!

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of taurus, mothers day, feng shui, blogs, astrology

Each year, when my kids ask me what I want for Mother’s Day, I offer the same immediate response: “I want to play in the dirt.”

My son, Vincent, who has both Jupiter and Saturn in Taurus and Venus in Virgo, understands. He remembers being a small child and gardening with me in our once gorgeous back yard. He can recall digging in the dirt and helping me plant seeds or pick fresh salad. He would help me water the garden, and he actually took pride in it. I do believe that boy has green-thumb potential.

My daughter Anna-Maria, on the other hand, who has no Earth in her chart, doesn’t get it. This Leo with Libra Rising wishes her mom would want to go shopping. You know. Like a normal girl.

Regardless of the excitement level (or lack thereof), my kids recognize that Mother’s Day is “mother’s” day, and for years they’ve patiently indulged my traditional dirt fest.

My Mother’s Day plant shopping ritual

We pile into my car early in the morning and take the hour-long drive to the affluent North Shore of Long Island. Here, there happens to be an absolute gem of a nursery. In fact, I think it is world famous. When I tell you this place is completely breathtaking I’m making an understatement. Rare, exotic plants, trees, flowers, vegetables, herbs and fruit trees are everywhere, along with your everyday greenery.

There’s an entire section devoted to ornate sculptures, waterfalls and any other type of outdoor accessory you could dream up. There’s outdoor furniture, gardening tools and other essentials. Everything is displayed in the most elegant, picturesque way possible.

For a few hours each Mother’s Day, I truly feel like I’ve walked across the gates of heaven.

Mother’s Day is typically Taurus

Isn’t it interesting that Mother’s Day falls each year when the Sun is in Taurus — the sign most connected to Mother Earth? My Sun is in Taurus and I have always felt most at peace when outdoors. Mothers everywhere are gifted with plants or flowers — symbols of life and beauty — on this day.

Like many Taureans, I’m a big fan of gardening. Unfortunately, since 2007 I haven’t been able to enjoy my back yard. The ugly residue of my divorce leaves me in a situation where I can no longer stand to be in it. That’s because my next door neighbors happen to be my ex-in-laws. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking right now. What a dumb newlywed move that was! Good point, well made.

Anyway …

When I was happily married my back yard was a haven. There was a gorgeous pond-less waterfall with climbing ivy, the most amazing peony bushes, a pear tree and my once-famous vegetable patch. I spent hours in my yard writing, reading, gardening and entertaining. Even sleeping.

Living in Queens, N.Y., however, the homes are close together. Neighbors are separated only by a fence, and you can always hear and see what your neighbor is doing in their yard. Not a problem when you’re on happy terms with your neighbors, but when you’re not it can get nasty.

Suffice it to say that I no longer have any capacity to experience peace or joy in my back yard. Until I’m able to afford to purchase my own home and leave this area, I’m left to reminisce about my outdoor gardening days.

My Feng Shui consultant to the rescue

But all is not lost, thanks to indoor plants! In fact, my Feng Shui consultant (yes, I have one of those, too!) taught me how to maximize the potential of strategically placed plants, flowers and even trees in my home to take full advantage of Chi (energy flow) and gain a feeling of serenity.

I have to say that my Feng Shui consultant was instrumental in helping me learn how to feel as much “at home” as I possibly can while I’m living in this energetically sticky situation.

I learned how to protect my home from anyone’s negative energy using various “cures” from the art of Feng Shui. I also learned how to attract more money, success, honors and even peace with and for my children by strategically placing plants (part of the element of Wood in Feng Shui), Fire, Metal, and Water in specific areas of my home.

The Bagua (energy map of your home) is a fascinating tool to become better acquainted with. Once mine was presented to me by my Feng Shui consultant, I was taught that one of the easiest ways to promote good Chi in your home is through plants and flowers. Thanks to Feng Shui, I once again found a way to enjoy playing in the dirt. Before this, I had largely ignored indoor gardening.

You can still garden indoors!

Thanks to my first Feng Shui consultation, however, my Mother’s Day tradition never had to miss a beat. Since then, my visits to the luxurious nursery each year have yielded a collection of the most gorgeous and rare house plants. I get to stare at them every day. They adorn my living room, office, bedrooms — even my kitchen.

Now that’s how you make a Taurus mama happy on Mother’s Day! Even though I don’t yet have my own piece of “peaceful” land outdoors, thanks to Feng Shui I’ve learned how to make indoor gardening almost as satisfying.

Eventually, when I am an official home owner, you can bet the first thing I plan on doing is maxing-out the positive Chi of my new crib with the help of my Feng Shui consultant. Well, that might be the second thing on my list.

I might need to sit in the yard and make a few mud pies first. Yep, I definitely have my priorities straight.

WOTC’s Extra – Magickal Activity Honoring Valentine’s Day

Miscellaneous & Cute Valentines Day Comments

Magickal Activity Honoring Valentine’s Day

A Love Box

Items You Will Need:

A small heart-shaped box painted pink
Love Drawing Oil
One pink votive candle
A Small square of parchment paper
A lock of your own hair
Red ribbon
One rose quartz

Begin by drawing a heart in the center of the parchment paper. Inside the heart inscribe your name and the name of the one you desire or love. Wrap the parchment paper around the lock of your hair and secure it with the red ribbon. Place the parchment, along with the rose quartz, inside the box and close the lid.

Using a pin or sharp object inscribe your name and the name of the one you desire (or love) into the pink candle. Pick up the candle and anoint it with the love-drawing oil as you chant:

“May the God of love hear my plea,
And bring everlasting love to me.”
 

Set the candle on top of the box and light it. Gaze into the flame of the candle and visualize the one you love loving you in return. Chant the following seven times:

“Hail to thee, great God of Love,
Shine down on me from far above.
Bring the one I desire to me,
That we shall ever love. So Mote It Be.”
 

Just before the candle burns out drip some of the wax around the lid of the box to seal it shut. On Valentine’s Day, present the box to the one you desire as a token of your love and friendship.

Mother Nature Can Be Fickle

Winter Comments & Graphics

Mother Nature Can Be Fickle

Winter’s cold is Mother Nature’s way
Of saying, lie with me now, lay your head on my breast
It’s snow, a blanket under which to lay
Neath a crystal cover, enjoying winter’s cold caress

Frost rimed windows … Mother Nature’s art
Icy abstractions painted with frosty finesse
Crystalline concoctions that form only a part
Of Mother Natures wonderful winter largesse

Ice coated limbs of slope shouldered trees
droop drowsily down as if fallen asleep
Unable to sway in winter’s frigid breeze
Appear as white mounds, when the snow drifts deep

The stillness one hears on cold winter nights
Broken by the sudden crack of ice laden boughs
The ethereal essence of undulating northern lights
Headlights in the sky for Nature’s snowplows

All is withdrawn, in awe of Nature’s might
Willingly waiting, deep neath frozen ground
Safely sequestered, from winter’s cruel bite
In warm tunnels and burrows, til spring comes around

Mother Nature invites winter into her domain Cohabits with coldness, wantonly sleeps with Jack frost
Yet finds cold winter quickly falls to disdain
Invites in the spring…and tells winter to get lost

Mother Nature is fickle…and also the boss!

—–David Whalen

Wakey, Wakey, It’s Tuesday Morning, Time To Get Up!

“The Mother’s Prayer”

“Our Mother, whose body is the Earth,
Sacred is thy being.
Thy garden grow.
Thy will be done in our cities, as it is in nature.

Thanks be this day for food, and air, and water.
Forgive us our sins against Earth, as we are learning to forgive one
another.
And surrender us not unto extinction, but deliver us from our folly.
For thine is the beauty, and the power, and all life, from birth to
death, from beginning to end, forever.

So be it,
Blessed be.”

1989 by Henry Horton

Shine Your Blessings Down Upon Us Today, Tuesday, May 21st

Days Of The Week Comments
Good Morning, dear family and friends! I hope with all my heart all of your loved ones are safe and sound. I watched the tragedy last night and again this morning. Seeing images like those being shown on TV will depress the best of us. Really. Just over and over again. I know, turn off the damn TV. I changed the channel simplest thing to do.

 

I was thinking this morning here recently we have been doing a lot of praying on this site. Haven’t we? I know some might see it as odd especially on a Witchcraft site. But to me, praying to my Goddess is very comforting. I can feel Her Warmth and Love. It is just like my mind is wiped cleaned for a minute. Nothing to think about, I am at peace with myself and the world. I have forgot all the problems that exists. The tears in my eyes are replaced with a sparkle of Her Love. She fills the void of hopeless in my life. With Her all things are possible.

 

If you think there is too much prayer on this site, I am sorry. But you see now the Goddess is my rock, She is my All. For without Her, I am nothing. She is my Almighty Mother with whom all things are possible.

 

Goddess Bless You & Yours,

Lady A
