Charging a Smudge Stick or Herbs

Whether you make your own smudge stick, use a prepared one or are planning to burn herbs in a bowl, you can endow them with power.

If you are using a smudge stick, hold it between your hands. If you are using a bowl, place your herbs in the bowl and hold this during the ritual.

In this ritual, we will use the six directions recognized by the Native North Americans:  the four main compass points, then downwards and finally upwards. Begin in the East, important to Native North Americans as the direction of dawn. Indeed a number of western practitioners start traditional magickal rituals by facing the East and opening the watchtowers here. Start with the North for security. If indoors, ventilate the room well.

  • Stand so that there is space round you.
  • Light a circle of red or natural beeswax candles in deep holders, one at each main direction and one in the center to ignite the smudge. If this is part of a ritual outdoors, you can visualize a ring of fire and omit the candles except for the one used to light the smudge. If you do light directional candles, light the central candle and then the candle of the East, South and so on. During the ritual you can move and stand by each, facing outwards in the appropriate direction of you wish.
  • Light the smudge from the central candle. Standing in the center of your fire wheel, face first the East, the direction of Dawn and Spring. Raise your stick or bowl and say:

“I greet the freshness of Dawn and brightness of the new morning. Fill, I ask, tee my sacred herbs with new life and swiftness of purpose.”

  • Turn next to the South, direction of Moon and Summer. Lite your smudge stick or bowl upwards and say:

“I greet the brilliance of noon and its radiant fire. Fill, I ask, these my sacred herbs with inspiration, integrity and courage.”

  • Face the West, direction of Dusk and Autumn and once more raise your smudge tools, saying:

“I greet the deepening skies and the first star of evening. Fill, I ask, thee my sacred herbs with love and healing.”

  • Face the North, direction of Midnight and Winter. Life your stick or bowl, saying:

“I welcome the darkness and the time of quiet repose.. Fill these sacred herbs with acceptance of what cannot be changed and with the wisdom of the ancestors.”

  • Standing still in the center of your actual or visualized fire circle, next to the central candle, lower the smudge towards the Earth and say:

“Kind Mother Earth, bless your own sacred herbs and absorb all that is not worthy of beauty in this wand of herbs and in my intentions.”

  • Finally, lift your stick or bowl high in the air, saying:

“Father Sky, bless these sacred herbs that my wishes and prayers may rise and be transformed into whatever is right and of worth.”

  • Some practitioners end with Mother Earth, or you can vary it according to the nature of the ritual.
  • As well as charging your herbs with power, you can create a complete ritual by facing and invoking the six directions with your smudge and then smudging yourself as a means of empowerment or protection. Alternatively, you can empower a symbol by carrying it to each of the four directions in turn and smudging it while declaring the purpose of the ritual.
  • You can end by lowering it to the Earth and smudging it there, and finally raising it upwards and releasing the energies in the smudge skywards.


Lighting Smudge

  • Use long matches or a candle but do not get wax on the smudge.
  • Light the tip of the smudge.
  • Let the flame die down and then blow the stick until the end glows red and smoke begins to curl upwards. Take time to get it really smoking well, especially outdoors on damp days.
  • If you are using candles at the quarters of a circle in ritual, you can briefly hold the smudge into each flame in turn as you address the quarters.
  • Keep a fire source like a candle in a safe holder near where you are smudging. If the stick goes out, you can relight it any time during the ritual, adding a blessing at the same time.

Equipment You Will Need for Smudging

A Smudging Fan

The purpose of a fan is to spread and direct the smoke from a smudge stick or bowl of herbs around the person, object or place to be cleansed. If you prefer, you can use your hand or a leaf brush made, for example, of pine needles. Use your hand only if you are writing in smoke with your stick.

Feathers and wing fans are traditional and are believed to assist in cleansing the human aura or psychic energy field as well as adding the qualities of the particular bird to the magick.

You can buy feather fans or use a single large feather you have bought or found.


For burning pre-dried herbs without charcoal you need a heatproof dish as the heat is very fierce. It should be flat enough to allow the air to circulate. You can put a layer of sand or dry soil in the bottom as insulation. In the Native North American Indian tradition as abalone shell is used. This has natural perforations to let out the heat and ensure that the air is distributed evenly all around to give a regular streams of smoke. Shells are symbolic of the Mother Goddess.

A popular smudging bowl to use is ceramic, broad and flat with a shallow rim and wide lip that remains cool even when herbs are heated and broad feet so that it can be placed on a table or on the floor without the risk of scorching. You could make your own bowl, thus endowing it with your personal energies.

You also need a deep bowl for sand or earth in which you can extinguish smudge sticks when you want to end a ritual and they have not gone out naturally. You can also catch the ash or any sparks from your smudge stick in the bowl. Some people extinguish a smudge stick by tapping it on the edge of the bowl. Water is not used, except in an emergency.

Drying The Smudge Sticks

  • Hang your smudge bundles upside down using a knot in the twine so that the air can circulate. Ensure the are you keep them is warm and not damp, and not exposed to direct sunlight.
  • Leave the smudge sticks to dry for about two weeks. They are ready when they are dry but not completely moisture free. Watch out for mold.

NASA Image of the Day for October 10th

Electrical Circuit Between Saturn and Enceladus

This artist’s concept shows a glowing patch of ultraviolet light near Saturn’s north pole that occurs at the “footprint” of the magnetic connection between Saturn and its moon Enceladus. The footprint and magnetic field lines are not visible to the naked eye, but were detected by the ultraviolet imaging spectrograph and the fields and particles instruments on NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. The footprint, newly discovered by Cassini, marks the presence of an electrical circuit that connects Saturn with Enceladus and accelerates electrons and ions along the magnetic field lines. In this image, the footprint is in the white box marked on Saturn, with the magnetic field lines in white and purple.

A larger white square above Enceladus shows a cross-section of the magnetic field line between the moon and the planet. This pattern of energetic protons was detected by Cassini’s magnetospheric imaging instrument (MIMI) on Aug. 11, 2008.

The patch near Saturn’s north pole glows because of the same phenomenon that makes Saturn’s well-known north and south polar auroras glow: energetic electrons diving into the planet’s atmosphere. However, the “footprint” is not connected to the rings of auroras around Saturn’s poles (shown as an orange ring around the north pole in this image).

The Cassini plasma spectrometer complemented the MIMI data, with detection of field-aligned electron beams in the area. A team of scientists analyzed the charged particle data and concluded that the electron beams had sufficient energy flux to generate a detectable level of auroral emission at Saturn. Target locations were provided to Cassini’s ultraviolet imaging spectrograph team. On Aug. 26, 2008, the spectrograph obtained images of an auroral footprint in Saturn’s northern hemisphere.

The newly discovered auroral footprint measured about 1,200 kilometers (750 miles) in the longitude direction and less than 400 kilometers (250 miles) in latitude, covering an area comparable to that of California or Sweden. It was located at about 65 degrees north latitude.

In the brightest image the footprint shone with an ultraviolet light intensity of about 1.6 kilorayleighs, far less than the Saturnian polar auroral rings. This is comparable to the faintest aurora visible at Earth without a telescope in the visible light spectrum. Scientists have not yet found a matching footprint at the southern end of the magnetic field line.

The background star field and false color images of Saturn and Enceladus were obtained by Cassini’s imaging science subsystem.

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif. manages the mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The ultraviolet imaging spectrograph team is based at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The magnetospheric imaging team is based at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Md. The Cassini plasma spectrometer team is based at the Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas.

Astronomy Picture of the Day For October 10th

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.

The Milky Way in Infrared
Credit: E. L. Wright (UCLA), The COBE Project, DIRBE, NASA 

Explanation: At night, from a dark location, part of the clear sky looks milky. This unusual swath of dim light is generally visible during any month and from any location. Until the invention of the telescope, nobody really knew what the “Milky Way” was. About 300 years ago telescopes caused a startling revelation: the Milky Way was made of stars. Only 70 years ago, more powerful telescopes brought the further revelation that the Milky Way is only one galaxy among many. Now telescopes in space allow yet deeper understanding. The above picture was taken by the COBE satellite and shows the plane of our Galaxy in infrared light. The thin disk of our home spiral galaxy is clearly apparent, with stars appearing white and interstellar dust appearing red.

Your Daily Number for October 10th: 8

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for October 10th is 52:Keeping Still

52: Keeping Still

Hexagram 52

General Meaning: Regular periods of keeping still are an important aspect of personal development and forward motion. The most restful person may not be the one who sleeps twelve hours a day, but the one able to grab catnaps while cruising 600 miles-per-hour at 35,000 ft. Learning to act when it is time to act, and to keep still when it is time to keep still, is the key to obtaining the peace of mind which helps you stay focused when clear focus is needed.

Consider the spine, which serves as a switchboard for all the nerves of the body that mediate movement. When the spine is kept flexible and healthy through proper rest and relaxation, active movement can always be undertaken without strain. When the spine is held erect in a balanced sitting posture, the inner balancing of meditation can take place.

Treat your innate spark of energetic vitality like a candle in the wind you are protecting, as your only light in a dark forest on a moonless night. Avoid external conditions that threaten to snuff out the flame, and be careful not to suffocate it with your own ambitions of worries.

Time out. Relax now, take your shoes off and sit a spell. Let go of thinking. Breathe and meditate on the breathing.

Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:

The High Priestess

This Tarot Deck: Cosmic

General Meaning: Traditionally called the High Priestess, this major arcana, or trump, card represents human wisdom. She can be viewed as a kind of female Pope, the ancient Egyptian Priestess of Isis, the even older snake and bird Goddesses, the Greek Goddess Persephone, or the Eve of Genesis before the Fall.

For the accused heretics who were burnt at the stake for revering her in the 14th and 15th century, she symbolized the prophecy of the return of the Holy Spirit, which was perceived as the female aspect of the Holy Trinity.

In the sequence of cards in the major arcana, the High Priestess appears as soon as the Fool decides he wants to develop his innate powers, making a move toward becoming a Magus. The High Priestess is his first teacher, representing the Inner Life and the method for contacting it, as well as the contemplative study of Nature and the Holy Mysteries

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, October 10th

Although we may be dreaming of the future or reminiscing about the past, the Moon’s blast into fiery Aries at 8:57 am EDT resets our emotional cycles and brings our feelings back to the present moment. The power of now is intensified by the Moon’s conjunction with instantaneous Uranus and her square with unrelenting Pluto. Meanwhile, we’re challenged to stabilize our desires today as attractive Venus forms an uncomfortable quincunx with Uranus.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re riding on an adrenaline surge today and although you like it, you’d be happier if you thought you were in charge of your own life. As it is, you might have authority over some things, but the larger waves are completely out of your control. Don’t bother wasting your time attempting to change circumstances that are beyond your reach; instead, focus on responding to the shifting currents as best as you can.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You might not feel very relaxed today, yet you can be very productive if you forget about trying to take the day off. Ironically, you may enjoy doing mundane chores around the home or office once you get into gear. But don’t seek approval from anyone else; unfortunately, others probably won’t tell you what you want to hear now. Work for the satisfaction of a job well done.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

This can be an exciting day if you aren’t afraid of trying something completely new and different. Push beyond your old limits, but don’t take yourself too seriously in the process. Although you’re often more lighthearted, you could be overly concerned now about getting everything just right. Relax your expectations so you can have fun, no matter what happens.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You are tempted to take on too much today and might feel discouraged later on, once you realize that you can’t complete everything you started. Thankfully, the solution is rather simple: be more cautious prior to making a commitment. It’s a good idea to begin a project slowly and pick up speed as you go along. It’s always better to promise less and deliver more.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You are ready to cook up a grandiose scheme with today’s enterprising Aries Moon visiting your 9th House of Big Ideas. Luckily, courageous Mars in your fixed sign now gives you the unflappable determination to turn the craziest of your ideas into reality. If you recently scaled back a project, consider pushing it forward again until you can see progress.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You try to think of everything in advance, but no amount of detailed research can prepare you for the surprising twists and turns that your life is currently taking. However, don’t get so caught up in the present moment or you’ll forget about your original intention. Nevertheless, setting your old plans aside enables you to be even more effective in executing your new ones.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Someone might catch you off guard by overreacting to what you say or do in a way that’s hard to understand. But don’t be negative today just because you are uncomfortable with anyone who takes an approach that is different from yours. Even if others seem brash, remember that you can be big enough to allow for the wide variety of people you encounter. Taking the high road now may be more beneficial than you expect.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You might not have much patience today, yet your spontaneity is countered by your unrelenting drive to finish anything you start. It would be a mistake for anyone to think that you are all talk now, even if you have a lot to say. Back up your promises with decisive action that is focused on getting your work completed as quickly as possible.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are in a high-frequency state of excitement, but some of your intensity is less than apparent. With Venus now in your 12th House of Secrets, there may be more going on than is stated in today’s subject line. But your self-expression is irrepressible, spurring you to find ways to work off some of your excess energy. Hitting the gym or taking a long walk may be an ideal way to get your mojo flowing and things moving in the right direction.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You could be a bit frustrated today because you don’t feel like fighting to stay on top; however, you don’t want to convince yourself to relax now, only to discover that you missed an important opportunity. The biggest challenge is in believing that things really could get easier from this point on. But whether or not the hardest part is over, you can set your life in a better direction by affirming your positive future in the present moment.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may have an idea about how you want to spend your day until someone crosses your path with an entirely different agenda. Your immediate reaction is to explain why your plan is the best course of action. However, you’ll only create bigger problems if you set up a competitive situation where there will be only one winner. Establishing common ground enables everyone to work successfully together as a team.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You don’t like it if anyone tells you what to do today, especially since your mind is already made up. Nevertheless, it’s much better to avoid open conflict now and visualize what could be possible if everyone was more cooperative. However, you don’t have to let others push you too far, especially if they’re messing with your core values. Give them a fair warning and then take whatever action is required to maintain your integrity.

Your Daily Love Horoscopes for the Week of October 10th

The language of love grows deep, dark and smoky with passion and mystery as interactive Mercury enters intense Scorpio on Thursday. Each word weighs heavy with meaning that can draw two hearts closer together, or wound them with caustic remarks. Even playful comments can sting when they hit sensitive targets, so place kindness above cleverness now.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Friday looks mellow with the Moon’s presence in slow and easy Taurus. But the rest of the weekend will be jumping after the Moon dances into chatty Gemini and your 3rd House of Communication on Saturday morning. Flirting innocently and joking around can be a major source of entertainment, especially if you are single. However, a more romantic environment is one in which you quiet down and discuss grown-up issues to let someone special know the real you.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

The Moon in your sensual sign on Friday increases your desire for pleasurable delights. Overestimating someone’s feelings or overindulging your own appetite for fun could be costly. Stretching the boundaries of what you’ll do and who you’ll spend time with is great as long as you don’t go to extremes. Consistency of values and feelings, though, may be harder to find on Saturday and Sunday with the Moon in fickle Gemini. Have fun, but don’t count on anything you hear to be the absolute truth.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Take Friday off to relax without any undue pressure or unrealistic expectations. A little break prepares you for the heightened degree of activity that arrives when the Moon moves into your adaptable sign on Saturday morning. You’re buzzing with ideas and your head might be spinning with too many things to do. Take a deep breath and think about what you really want. Making the right choices in your personal life appears to be your major challenge this weekend.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Going out with friends should be extremely satisfying on Friday night with the Moon lighting up your 11th House of Groups. However, you’ll probably prefer more private forms of socializing during the rest of the weekend after the busy Gemini Moon slips into your 12th House of Privacy on Saturday. Getting away from the noise by yourself or with one quiet and undemanding individual should provide the peace that you’re seeking to clear your mind and heal your heart.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may find yourself in a familiar leadership position on Friday as others depend upon you to set the social agenda. Being a good friend and teammate by sharing authority, though, is more important during the rest of the weekend with the Moon’s visit to your 11th House of Groups. Going out with pals should be exhilarating, but volunteering for an organization could be an excellent way to do good work and connect with someone who shares your values.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The Moon buzzes into busy Gemini on Saturday where it perches at the top of your chart. This lunar placement is great for attracting lots of attention, but can also weigh you down with professional responsibilities. Instead of taking things too seriously, demonstrating your ability to adapt and be lighter in your approach makes you more attractive. No matter the pressures you might face now, there’s still some room for the fun and frivolity you need to keep your heart open.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

On Thursday and Friday the Moon’s presence in your 8th House of Deep Sharing can stir up some strong feelings about what you’re getting and what you’re missing in your relationships. But you can’t help but smile on Saturday and Sunday with the Moon brightening your adventurous 9th House and expanding your social horizons. Connecting with people from faraway places or participating in cultural and educational events that open your head and your heart will take your mind off your romantic worries.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon in earthy Taurus and your 7th House of Partners attracts stubborn people on Thursday and Friday, but the sweet touch of a patient person can make the extra effort worthwhile. On Saturday morning, the Moon flits into fluttery Gemini to provide plenty of mental stimulation. However, inconsistent individuals or your own vacillating feelings make it challenging to know what to expect in an intimate relationship. There’s no need to make promises if you’re unsure of what you want.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The slow pace of others could be annoying later this week, but that will change dramatically on Saturday morning when the Moon enters your 7th House of Partners and the entertaining sign of Gemini. You may be stimulated by a variety of events, but can also find it challenging to deal with someone who can’t stick to a subject or commit to a long-term plan. Keeping things light makes room for fun right now without having to worry about the future.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Thursday and Friday can be so delicious that it’s best to set aside your sense of responsibility so that you’re free to play to your heart’s delight. The sensual Taurus Moon’s presence in your 5th House of Romance recommends a bit of self-indulgence, making pleasure more important than productivity. Saturday and Sunday, on the other hand, can be filled with distractions that make it hard to settle into a comfortable groove. Do your best to relax and adapt by keeping your sense of humor in good working order.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The best strategy would be to take care of business during the week so you are ready to play on Saturday and Sunday. The mood-setting Moon in flirtatious Gemini brightens your 5th House of Romance, which makes pleasure a top priority. Don’t take yourself too seriously now because this lunar transit isn’t about sticking to rules or following a rigid plan. Pretending that you don’t have to think about tomorrow allows you to feel funny, flirty and free.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

This weekend is not the ideal time to make a major personal decision. The Moon enters chatty Gemini on Saturday, which is excellent for talking freely but not for arriving at accurate conclusions. Sure, you may feel uncertain and unsettled, but if you can process these emotions without committing to any specific action, you’ll discover a wider range of options to choose from in the future. Plus, taking your mind off your worries increases your chances for having fun right now.

the daily humorscope 

Monday, October 10, 2011

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You will go to a Chinese restaurant and decide to try something new. Don’t do it! It’s not as good as your favorite.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You will be strangely drawn to an odd glass sculpture in an antique shop. The proprietor will show it to you with some hesitation, and will be visibly perspiring when you buy it. You’ll hear an almost anguished sigh of relief from him, as you leave with it.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Your incisors will seem to be getting longer today, and you will find sunlight hurts your eyes. Probably just a cold, and nothing to worry about.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
That bad smell in the closet will get stronger. Time to investigate.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
An old nickname will surface today, much to your dismay, “Giggles.”
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Everyone you work with will bring Kim Chee for lunch, today. They’re just doing it to be difficult.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Good day to put strange labels on your binders and file cabinets, such as “launch codes”, “who’s been naughty”, or “Snerge.” This will be quite effective in distracting visitors, so they will often forget what ever they were preparing to bother you about.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Something will start to bother you, and you will eventually have to ask someone to explain it. The thing is, some birds have very acute hearing – so WHERE ARE THEIR EARS??
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Beware of strangers bearing Cheez Whiz.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
You will join the ranks of the hipster cognoscienti. It’ll be fun at first, but later you’ll start secretly craving casseroles, and it will eventually become such an intolerable pressure that you’ll abandon your pale, pierced friends with the clever haircuts and move to Minnesota.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Everyone will stare at you like deer in headlights this week at the office. Actually, you will later decide that driving your car around inside the office may not be your best-ever idea.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Someone nearby will read something out loud to you soon, which you might consider fairly obvious – such as “Blows to the head are a common cause of brain damage”. The best reply to this is “Huh?”

Happy Monday, dear friends of mine!

Days Of The Week Comments 
Hello all you lovely people out there! I was sitting here thinking about the title I use everyday on these starter posts. “Happy,” I use that all the time. I was wondering what other greeting would be appropriate, “Joyous Monday,” “Blissful Monday,” “Funny Monday?” It just hit me, “It’s A Killer Monday, Tuesday, etc., you get the idea, lol! The word “Killer” hit me because I am about ready to kill my husband (not really). He is in the next room watching Battle: Los Angeles. We have surround sound and I swear he has the volume set at 100. The damn walls are rumbling. And you can’t talk to him because he can’t hear you. So I went in there and yelled for him to turn it down. Amazingly enough, he did and the walls still rumble. He is in the process of retiring and I honestly don’t know if I am going to survive his retirement or not. Kiki, Razzy, Stinker and I are going to get us a tent and pitch it in the backyard. My Monday was going great till he got up. Enough with the bitchin’! 


I had several comments in regards to this blog having a “Donate Button.” There was some confusion as if it did have one and it does. On the right hand side of the blog, scroll all the way down to the bottom. There it is. It is linked to our non-profit account and I just checked it. It is working properly. If you have found material that is beneficial, you just like the blog or would just like to donate, your donations and generosity would be greatly appreciated. I know you probably wonder why a blog like this would have a donate button. In this case, it is actually to keep the internet going were we can operate the blog. The internet service is provided through a local Co-Op. The Co-Op owns the lines and therefore we are very limited to what we can get. So the funds you donate goes strictly to paying the internet service (which keeps getting higher and higher each month). So if you find it in your heart to donate, thank you very much. It is deeply appreciated. Well you ain’t paying me to goof off, so I am off to do the dailys. I hope you have a great Monday. Till tomorrow….

Luv & Hugs,

Lady A
