Lady A’s Spell of the Day for April 29 – CANDLE SPELL TO STOP HARASSMENT

CANDLE SPELL TO STOP HARASSMENT

Timing: During the waning moon. Use a brown candle (an image candle, if you can)
to represent the person who is harassing you.
Write the person’s name on the front and back of the candle.
On a small piece of parchment paper, write:
‘From now on, (name) will say nothing but sweet words about me and to me.
By the power of Aradia, so mote it be!’
Put a drop of honey in the middle of the paper and roll it into a ball.
Heat a knife, pin or your athame, make a gash in the candle (in its mouth, if it’s an image candle)
and stuff the paper ball into it.
Let the candle burn a little while every night for an odd number of nights, to a maximum
of nine nights. Throw the remnants into flowing water, but save some candle drippings
or ash to sprinkle in the path of your oppressor.

Magickal Goody for April 29 is Healing & Uplifting Body Soak

Healing & Uplifting Body Soak

2 cups dead sea salt (can improvise with sea salt)
2 cups of fine sea salt (crushed not the large granules)
2 cups epsom salt
1/8 cup pulverized orange rinds
1/4 cup crumbled peppermint (the leaves not the candy)
2 tbsp of these: Myrrh, sweet orange, and sandlewood essential oils (easy to get and pretty cheap)

Begin on a Friday during the waning moon. Mix salts in large nonreactive bowl. Recite:
“Precious gift from the Mothers of river and sea,”
Grind orange rinds and say:
“Uplift my spirits with your blessed fruit.”
Add to salts and mix well. Stir in crushed peppermint saying:
“In honor of Mother Earth, please hear my plea.”
In seperate bowl blend essential oils, then pour over salt mixture. Put into a screw top container, mixing well. Shake all ingrediants for three days, mixing them well. Do you have a crystal ball or something like one? Try to find something to concentrate on, a mirror, or maybe a shiny object. Focus intently on conjuring up healing power as you mix the soak.
Use two cups per bath. Use cool water. If possible place a gardinia petal or plant on silver or white silk cloth by window or table. Take bath in the evening of the Friday of a waning moon. Burn soothing incense in a sea shell over a hot charcoal.
Now, open your spirit and release your grief, sorrow, despair, whatever you are feeling into the water and into the smoke. As you watch the tub drain when finished, visualize your anguish, pain, sorrow leaving along with the water.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for April 29 is 21:Cutting Through

ay’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:

21: Cutting Through

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Hexagram 21

General Meaning: The situation calls for confronting a knotty conflict and cutting through it. Somehow, the way to harmony and unity is blocked or frustrated — perhaps by a tangle of misunderstandings or outright deceit. Like Alexander the Great cutting the Gordian knot, assert yourself now and you will meet with good fortune. Don’t be afraid to shake things up a bit. The ability to take corrective measures when they are needed is an essential trait of true leadership.

But those who bring discipline to bear must, above all, be honest — with others, and with themselves. Honesty is the hallmark of the strong and self-confident. The successful person masters the art of honesty much as a swordsman masters fencing. When lies, delusions and game playing are getting in the way of teamwork, a swift sword of honest action, perhaps even correction, must be wielded to protect one’s integrity and values. Decisiveness with integrity brings good fortune.

Though your actions be vigorous, they must not be hasty, severe or arbitrary. Be sure to carefully consider all the circumstances. In the case of a serious disruption of relations, you must forgive, but not forget to give a person a chance to make reparations for his mistakes. If some penalty or punishment is necessary, make certain that it fits the crime. When boundaries have become slack and useless, only through the institution of clear and swift correction can their effectiveness be restored.

In situations where serious issues of justice are at stake, keep careful records and do not hesitate to go public with the truth.

Your Daily Number for April 29: 7

Your Daily Number: 7

You may find yourself changing your priorities today and engaging in self-criticism. A confrontation with a loved one is possible, so keep your cool. Today is about your own spiritual realizations, wisdom, and hope. You’re comfortable being alone today and will probably be in a somewhat self-reflective frame of mind.

Today’s Tarot Card for April 29 is Judgment

Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:

Judgment

This Tarot Deck: Medieval Cat

General Meaning: What has traditionally been known as the Judgement card, sometimes entitled Resurrection, represents the great reunion that the ancients believed would happen once in every age. This was the time when souls are harvested and taken Home to their place of origin, outside the solar system. Then the World is seeded with a batch of new souls and the process starts over.

From a modern point of view, this great reunion — which includes every personality that you have ever been and every soul that you have done deep work with — reunites to consciously complete the process. In a way, we symbolically celebrate this returning to center every year on our birthday.

In personal terms, the Judgment cards points to freedom from inner conflicts, and so clear a channel, that the buried talents and gifts of past incarnations can come through an individual in this lifetime. This card counsels you to trust the process of opening yourself, because what emerges is of consistently high quality. You can effortlessly manifest as a multi-dimensional being, and assist in evoking that response from others.

Weekend Lunar Love Horoscopes for April 29 – May 1

Weekend Love: Lunar Love

by Jeff Jawer

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

April 29 – 1

Expect a wild ride this weekend with the Moon entering rambunctious Aries on Friday morning. We tend to be more impulsive with this lunar placement, easily growing bored with preset plans and primed to leap at interesting new people and experiences. Aries is also a sign of independence, placing personal interests at a higher priority than pleasing people. This could lead to some conflict for those too absorbed in their own desires to slow down and consider what others need.

The spontaneity of Aries spikes on Friday when the Moon conjuncts electrifying Uranus. The downside of this aspect is a feeling of restless anxiety or a sense of alienation. However, creative individuals can use this cosmic connection as a chance to break old patterns and discover new ways of having fun.

Saturday’s defining planetary feature is a tense opposition between Venus, the planet of love and desire, and Saturn, the representative of limits and obligations. This sobering alignment can slam the brakes on a budding romance or take some of the enthusiasm out of an ongoing relationship. We may feel less loved or appreciated, yet the point is not to puncture the potential for love but to put it on a realistic foundation. Directly addressing partnership issues with frank conversations may not be delightful, but can set a weakening alliance back on course or end one that’s not going to meet our long-term desires.

Aggressive Mars’ conjunction with gigantic Jupiter fuels flames of anger or passion on Saturday night and Sunday, presenting a striking contrast between playing it safe and going for broke.
