In India and Tibet the Dorje or Thunderbolt of Jupiter, is a favourite and greatly valued talisman. It is worn to protect against magic, all spiritual evils and to bring abundance, fuitfulness, and riches. The Dorje is shaped much like a dumb bell with pointed ends, and is the symbol of power and indestructiblility. It is supposed to overcome the Buddhist gods Ahi and Vrittra, the serpents, which the Buddhists believe swallow up the waters and cause drought, starvation and death; compelling the serpents to disgorge the waters, and to pour down the fertilizing showers.

Surprising and Sexy Situations
May 13 – 15
The Moon’s entry into gracious Libra on Friday morning should signal ideal conditions for romance. This is the relationship sign that’s so good at being sweet, sociable and accommodating to others. Indecision is an occasional issue for this well-balanced sign, but now there are other planetary pressures that complicate the emotional landscape.
The Moon is opposed by unruly Uranus and squared by ornery Pluto on Friday, ruffling feathers and rattling cages. It’s easy to be upset by unexpected events, radical shifts of mood or a profound sense of alienation. It’s best to keep things simple as this may reduce the likelihood of relationship complications. Breaking free of old habits and pushing back against bullies and manipulative people are potential positive points of this cosmic environment.
Saturday’s planetary energy is somewhat quieter, allowing for the more desirable aspects of the harmonious Libra Moon to shine. Collaborating on ideas with an open mind and sharing feelings with an open heart are among its gifts.
Sunday tells a very different story with the Moon’s shift from objective Libra to passionate Scorpio in the morning. It’s a great day to indulge the senses, as lovable Venus dances into her earthy home sign Taurus and mental Mercury quickly follows to reinforce our need for comfort. Scorpio hungers for deeper connections, driving us to push harder for what we want and, perhaps, to be more upset about what we’re missing. Still, the Mercury-Venus shift into easygoing Taurus is a reminder to enjoy the simple beauty that surrounds all of us. Celebrating the intrinsic value of oneself and experiencing joy in the simple pleasures brings a bit of balance to Scorpio’s inferno of desire and could end up making this a very sexy day.
Your day may get off to a bad start, but don’t hold on to any feelings of negativity or they might become obstacles to getting your way. Your workmates are willing to give you the support you want now, but you have to meet them halfway. You are naturally spontaneous, making you acutely aware of the advantage of focusing on the present; consider your current situation without dwelling on your past.
No matter how self-confident you feel now, there are still pragmatic reasons why it’s not wise to charge ahead and take what you want. Luckily, you’re willing to wait and your patience serves you well. Acting too forceful would only complicate things, but taking small, determined steps should increase the chances of reaching your desired destination.
Someone may misinterpret your actions today, for shady Pluto aspects the Sun hiding in your 12th House of Secrets. Fortunately, throughout the day it grows easier to say what needs to be said, but you might not overcome the resistance without an open conflict. Don’t back down, even if you must stand up to another person’s power trip. Ultimately, your persistence and clear conscience will work to your advantage.
Your ambivalence is apparent today if someone demands that you take sides in an open disagreement at work. Although you might have a distinct preference, you’re hesitant to express your opinion because you understand both sides of the issue. Ultimately, you’re aware that you’re an observer and the conflict isn’t necessarily your problem. Even if you’re willing to lend a sympathetic ear, this distraction can affect your productivity. Stand firm in your impartiality to allow others the chance to find a quick resolution on their own.
The Moon’s entry into your 3rd House of Information means that you must make some difficult choices about your schedule. You’re tempted to cram a lot into a small amount of time, but it might be smarter to simply let the day unfold with as few commitments as possible. There’s a sensible wisdom in being flexible to the changing winds, like a kite remains open to the fickle breezes of spring. Stay unattached to the clock today to increase your chances of grabbing an amazing opportunity if it appears out of the blue.
You know what you need to do to reach your current goal; however, you might actually prefer to be doing something very different now. Your struggle over this apparently irresolvable dilemma can be very intense. Thankfully, you have a greater degree of control than you think. Remember that your happiness is not dependent on any one event, but rather on how you respond to life’s twists and turns. Your resilience may be tested today, but you’re up for the challenge.
You may experience an uncharacteristic emotional meltdown this morning, which clears the air of bad feelings and allows you to get back to business. Fortunately, getting along with others isn’t all that difficult when you care about the same issues. Sadly, someone may be dishonest with you today, making you unsympathetic to an alternative perspective. Still, it’s wise to suspend your judgment for a while and be as gracious to others as possible.
Your patience has worn thin, even if your intentions are good. You’re tired of the same old issues coming up again and again, even though you have processed them and moved on. Fortunately, you can tell that others are really trying to change and you may already see positive movement. But it might not be happening fast enough and you don’t feel like waiting any longer. Being honest and expressing your frustrations in a calm manner reduces the tension and strengthens a key relationship.
You may be known for your social charm, and this usually works in your favor. However, you must exercise self-restraint now or your exuberant style might offend someone important. But rather than withdrawing completely, try toning down your enthusiasm just a touch. Keep in mind that self-discipline doesn’t mean you have to remain silent; it’s about saying the right thing succinctly. It’s crucial to know how much to say and when to stop talking.
You may be angry if someone sends you mixed signals today, asking you to do something and then instructing you to back off. You might not have a strong preference about what you should do, but you aren’t happy with the uncertainty that’s raised with the change of plans. Don’t push for clarification; you could inadvertently open a can of worms that’s better left alone. Accept the lack of direction now instead of wasting your energy trying to capture elusive resolution.
You’re on the edge of a breakthrough today, but you are probably juggling too many tasks to follow up on any one of them. Thankfully, your routine work assignments won’t necessarily prevent you from pursuing a more interesting adventure. Your commitment will probably mean working late hours, but you can meet all your obligations while still having sufficient time to explore a more inspiring path.
Your subconscious is sending you powerful messages today, yet they may stem from old fears rather than from current events. Ironically, the more time you put into analyzing your memories, the more intense your feelings become. There’s nothing to be gained by feeding your negative fantasies; instead of worrying about something that’s well in your past, focus all your attention on what’s happening now.
Simply lighting a candle can be a magickal ritual unto itself. You might like to burn a candle to help with any number of intentions, including but not limited to intentions regarding any of the following:
Once you’ve chosen your intention, you’re ready to begin preparing for your candle ritual.
Write down your intention in one sentence, as if it’s already happened. For example, you might write “I am wealthy beyond my fondest dreams” or “I am vibrantly healthy in every way.”
2. Select a Scent or Scents
Look at a list of oils and choose a scent or scents to help manifest your intention. Write down you selection.
3. Select a Color
Here are some color ideas:
Black: banishing, releasing, dissolving
Deep Blue: intuition, psychic, abilities, success, harmony, peace
Green: health, healing, wealth, heart opening
Lavender: physical beauty, spirituality, harmony
Orange: harmony, warmth, harvest, fruition, sexuality
Red: passion, fame, strength, courage, success, vibrant health, victory, connection with the Earth.
Robin’s Egg Blue: communication, joy, lightness, self-expression
Violet/Purple: spirituality, inner beauty, magick
White: purity, protection, manifestation, healing
Yellow: energy, clarity, joy, courage, personal power
4. Obtain Your Candle
Choose or make a soy or other vegetable wax candle.
If you make it, color it and scent it with your chosen color and scent(s). If you purchase it, you can either find a candle with your chosen color and scent or just a candle with you chosen color. You can then anoint your candle with your chosen scents later.
As an alternative to getting a colored candle, you can get a white or off-white candle and place it in a colored glass jar or candleholder.
5. Prepare Your Candle
Carve the words of your intention into the candle with a pencil, mail or something else that works. You can use the entire sentence or you can just choose a word that summarizes your intention, such as “romance,” “wealth,” “release,” or “health.” If you’re going to anoint your candle with essential oil, put a few (or more, according to your preference) drops of your chosen oil(s)in a carrier oil such as sunflower or olive oil. Then lightly smooth this oil over the entire surface of the candle (except the bottom and the wick) with your fingers. Alternatively, use a paper towel to apply the oil if you’re not sure if the essential oils will irritate your skin.
6. Empower Your Candle
Use one of the following two ways (a) hold it in both hands and visualize and/or feel your intended outcome as if it has already manifested, then mentally direct the energy generated by this visualization into the candle, or (b) use the three secrets empowerment.
7. Light Your Candle
If you’re burning the candle to manifest something, burn it during the waxing moon. If you’re burning it to release or banish something, burn it during the waning moon. Once you extinguish it, you can just burn it casually whenever you’re home and feel like having some candlelight. Or, if you’d like to speed its magick, burn it whenever you’re home until it burns all the way down. Every time you light it, say a quick prayer or do a quick visualization of your intended outcome.
