The Witch’s Ball

The Witch’s Ball

A witch ball is a very interesting item. Powerful and simple to make.

It requires a glass jar, I use a jar about the size of a baby food jar, with the lid….


You fill it halfway with sharp items. Broken glass, needles etc.


You then fill it with a liquid. Some use oils some vinegar others use their own urine. That seems to be a personal choice.


You then bury it in your yard. It “cut’s” any “evil” or bad, negative things “pointed” at your home. They are good for a year and then it is time to replace them.


I have also heard of witch balls being made with glass and then filled with string or yarn. You place them in a window and they “tangle” negative or evil as it comes to your home. For myself, I place mirrored balls in my windows to reflect out any bad energy from the outside. I make a point to sand off the tops of the jars and to remove any labels.

Daily Feng Shui Tip for Sunday, May 13

I simply don’t have the words to express my sentiments about today’s ‘Mother’s Day’ celebration. Sometimes just writing or saying the word ‘mother’ speaks volumes. Today I honor, appreciate and applaud every single one of us who have taken on the task of mothering. Some will be spending time with their own mothers today, the same mothers who sacrificed and snuggled, smiled and supported, no matter what. And then there are those of us who are living without our mothers, and our lives are definitely not quite the same. We miss them every day. I know I do. Happy Mother’s Day to every mother who walks this whole wide world. You make all that’s wonderful in the world even better — and most of the time you don’t even know it. Lucky bamboo is a great gift that is believed to bring solid support to every area of Mom’s now lucky life. There are even numbers of stalks you can give to show her support in specific endeavors, or oddly enough, other numbers that can also create great fortunes. Two stalks if she’s looking for a partner, five if her health is of concern and eight if she could use a little cold, hard cash. She warms your heart, holds your hand and cries whenever you do. Like I said, just read the word and feel the love. Mother. Happy day devoted just to you!

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for May 13th is 27: Nourishment

27: Nourishment

Hexagram 27

General Meaning: Nourishment refers to more than a healthy diet. It is the care-giving function. Eating properly implies care for oneself; providing healthy meals in the home is a sign of caring for the family. The writer of a great book or composer of an inspiring piece of music also provides nourishment, by caring deeply about the quality of his or her work and offering it to the world.

We can know others by observing what they choose to nourish in their lives. Do they properly feed and develop their bodies? Do they cultivate their spirits, their intellects, their moral values? Do they nourish and care for those around them? If so, to whom do they devote their energies? The most successful people are temperate in eating and drinking, thinking and dreaming. They strengthen the world by nurturing everyone’s higher nature.

Pay heed to your thoughts and impulses, ignoring those that undermine a healthy and persevering attitude. A wise person is temperate in the consumption of food and drink, because to be otherwise only leads to discomfort; the fact that temporary pleasure may precede the discomfort does not influence the person of mature character. In the same way, be discriminating in your words and actions, lest a desire for temporary advantage lead you to cause pain for yourself or others. Enrich your character and you will naturally nourish everyone around you.

Today’s Runes for Sunday, May 13th s Dagez

Today’s Runes

Spirit Runes are most commonly used for questions about mysticism, spirituality, and religion. Dagez means daylight, and represents divine light. This rune generally refers to dawn (the initial sparking of energy) or to midday (the climax of energy). Both dawn and midday are symbolic of change, but unlike the changes in the perpetual circle of the year which are slow and subtle, the changes over a day are much faster and more dramatic. The breaking of a new day is symbolic of the rapid illumination of dismal circumstances, and is suggestive of Satori. Be careful – although this rune generally suggests a positive change, the symbology of a peaking point suggests that there must be a change downward as well. Fortunately for some, this rune is cyclic and irreversible, and so permanence is not promised – the only thing you can be sure of is an exciting ride.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 13th

This is an uplifting day that can bring us joy as the Sun hooks up with bountiful Jupiter in sensual Taurus. This alignment symbolizes the opportunities we have for happiness, and the confidence that we’ll find satisfaction. Meanwhile, the Moon enters imaginative Pisces at 7:41 am EDT and joins dreamy Neptune, making fantasies seem real. Putting our thoughts into motion is further supported by clever Mercury’s harmonious trine to energetic Mars.
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You feel as if everything is going your way today, but you might end up spending more resources than you expect. It’s as if you’re ready to pay the price to have a good time, but you might underestimate the cost. Thankfully, you can rely on your analytical skills to help you navigate through a day of potential excess. Have fun; just remember that the bill will come due once the party is over.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You are feeling quite positive now with the Sun-Jupiter conjunction expanding your horizons and empowering you to soar on the wings of your unrestrained optimism. Although you are ready to enjoy yourself today, overindulging your senses could mean a tummy ache or a splitting head tomorrow. Nevertheless, paying attention to your limits doesn’t have to lessen your enjoyment. Play hard without going too far.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You can get by today by doing less work than usual. It’s as if a guardian angel is watching over you, or, perhaps, a close friend comes to your aid just when you need it most. Of course, your positive attitude doesn’t hurt; in fact, self-confidence is a magnet now that attracts good things your way. Don’t second-guess someone’s motives; just graciously accept what is offered with an open heart.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

There’s no need to head off on your own today. In fact, it’s a good idea to surround yourself with friends and family — the more people, the merrier. Being part of group gives you a feeling of belonging to a community or a tribe of like-minded folks. Don’t be afraid to open your heart to the love that’s around you, for whatever you give will return to you many times over.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Although you may be thinking about your professional objectives, you’re not interested in working too hard to reach your goals today. Your confidence is running high and you might even feel as if success is owed to you because of past efforts. Don’t be too cocky or you could inadvertently push away those who want to help you reach your goals. Paradoxically, a little humility goes a long way toward ensuring that you will receive the respect that you deserve.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Today you can concentrate your intentions toward the fulfillment of your desires. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you’ll receive everything you want. However, your singular focus can actually bring an increase of abundance — including love — into your life. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn and grow. Take advantage of what life has to offer before it’s too late.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may feel that a long-term phase of inner growth is coming to an end. The power of your positive thinking can be transformed into rewarding action now. Your rich fantasy life turns outward toward social activities as your needs begin to shift. Get ready to swing into action, but don’t overextend your commitments or you’ll quickly regret taking on too much.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

All types of relationships are favored now and it might even seem as if others just want to make you happy. Although you may question someone else’s motives, your suspicions are probably unfounded. Rather than doubting anyone’s integrity, just accept the advice or assistance you receive with appreciation. But don’t succumb to the temptation of expecting more than is actually offered or you’ll end up being disappointed rather than happily surprised with the good news.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Too much of a good thing isn’t always such a good thing. You need to remember now that honoring reasonable limits can help you find satisfaction. You might be carried away by circumstances that start out feeling pleasurable until things grow out of control. Don’t be afraid to enjoy yourself, but keep in mind that excessive indulgence could ultimately bring pain instead of pleasure.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Although your creativity is running high, it’s still difficult to plot a new course of action because there are so many possibilities available. Additionally, if everything is working well enough on its own, you may not want to jeopardize your sense of well-being. Practicality will ultimately rule the roost. Opportunities for personal growth and self-expression are everywhere, but setting priorities enables you to maximize the current potential. Trust your instincts and your chances for success are quite good.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You must filter out the extraneous noise if you are to make the most of your day. You may even need to withdraw from social activities to spend time alone. The greatest opportunities arise now when you are at peace with yourself, rather than when you are interacting with others. Don’t be distracted from your inner process; you’ll do best today by working on your own.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

The mists continue to swirl around you, clouding your perceptions of the outer world while increasing your reliance on your intuition. You are at the top of your game now when socializing, as long as you don’t waste time trying to logically figure out what to say next. Don’t worry if you’re not making sense. Instead of thinking your way through a situation, speak directly from your heart. The real rewards of the day are emotional and spiritual rather than material.

Your Daily Love & Romance Horoscopes for May 13th


Venus, planet of love is spending her last week in direct motion in your communication sector until later next month and is due to turn retrograde in just 3 days time. This will open the door to second chances, especially on the relationship front, but until then stay in the moment, without projecting forwards or backwards.


You’re about to move into some extremely fortunate times on the income and work fronts, which could create some distractions over the coming weeks. It’s over the weekend that you’re able to work at developing the right balance between work and play, by tapping into your romantic passions, then holding onto that during your new working week.


Venus, planet of love is spending her last weekend in direct motion in your sign until later next month and due to turn retrograde in just 3 days time, she’s asking you to stay in the moment. As Venus won’t progress any future and hasn’t yet turned retrograde there is no point looking too far ahead or looking back, with your only option being to stay in the moment.


Because Pluto is the planet of change and revolution, his retrograde phase in your relationship sector is not a sightseeing trip, instead giving you a chance to change anything that isn’t working, especially those things revealed by hindsight. However, you can’t change what you can’t see, with a need to keep your head out of the sand.


When life is busy and there are demands on your time, it is easy to let your weekends be eaten up without getting a chance to focus on what’s really important. This is a day where your relationships need to come first, but it’s less about the quantity of time you spend together and more about the quality of that time.


You’re about to head into some fairly intense relationship days, with a need for some attitude reality checks beforehand. Choose to move forward with the communication lines open and choose to see any relationship pressure as a chance for a breakthrough and to create something more authentic. Pretence is not an option.


During the Moon’s final hours in your romantic sector tap into the romantic vibes in the air and get an intuitive read on your heart, for this is the only point you’ll get all month to really delve deep. With a busy and intense working week waiting for you on the other side of the weekend, hold onto and make the most of the romantic and playful vibes in the air.


It’s because your relationships have been on such long and at times challenging journeys, that you’re able to appreciate and sense that things really are coming together. By this time next month even Jupiter will be gone from your relationship sector and it’s time now to bring things home.


As Venus, planet of love spends her last weekend in direct motion in your relationship sector, before turning retrograde in just 3 days time, you’re able to benefit from the fact that the Moon is in your communication sector. This gives you a chance to slow down and make both your relationships and communication a priority today.


Until now you’ve been waiting for more things to fall into place before you could give lucky romantic forces your all, but that’s no longer the case. All the resources you need are now at hand and it’s time to put as much faith in the love gods as they’re putting in you. Find out first hand just how lucky in love you are, by holding nothing back.


As Venus, planet of love spends her last weekend in direct motion in your romantic sector, before turning retrograde in just 3 days time, she’s come to a near standstill, asking you to do the same. With old doors not yet open and Venus not venturing too much further, this leaves you no other option but to stay in the moment.


Tomorrow Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos and Chiron, planet of healing will go head to head, creating yet another round of relationship pressure. Yet as you near the final hurdle you have to cross, having so many advantages on the communication front is already turning this into an opportunity, especially for a breakthrough.

Your Daily Chinese Horoscopes for Sunday, May 13th


You and your partner may disagree about a health or lifestyle issue. You should be careful to analyze your reactions right now – you could react from the wrong space and are strongly resisting a change that would really be in your own best interest.


Dramatic changes are coming in your love life as a result of changing values, changes in friendships, or changes in your beliefs about “right and wrong”. You may be growing toward a better understanding, or are growing apart from someone who has chosen to stay frozen in the past.


A friend is going to ask you to commit to some kind of personal sacrifice on their behalf, but you have other priorities, most likely a family member who is in need of emotional support. They may not realize that their own prejudices are getting in the way of clear insight.


Whether you are traveling around the world or across town, be careful to take extra time and care when you are driving. If you have medical issues, ensure that you are carrying any medicine you might need and that any medical paperwork is filled out in advance.


This is not the best day to try to gamble on that lucky streak you have had lately. Save or store your wins for a better day. Quit while you’re ahead. Don’t listen to that nagging little voice that is telling you to get out right now and spend, spend spend.


With all the good news you got last week it may seem like a good thing for you to stay humble – but that’s no fun! You definitely will be looking at your personal and spiritual values and beliefs – but try to cut yourself some slack. Count your blessings.


Your intuition will not be as sharp as it seems today. Be careful before making any sudden changes to plans, and avoid impulsive spending. You especially want to be careful to avoid large purchases that are hard to exchange or return later on. There is “buyer’s remorse” in your chart.


Friends and companions bring challenges as well as opportunities right now. If you can keep things light, then things go well, especially when art or music is in the picture. But when the topic turns to global politics, you might want to dive for cover.


If you have an argument with your spouse today it is likely to be about career, social status or your ambitions. You’ll either be labeled completely lazy or a workaholic. The truth lies in the middle somewhere, but emotions are high and reason is absent today.


You may have to make some significant changes to some upcoming travel plans. You may have overlooked some critical scheduling conflict, or set yourself up for a confrontation with a rather stodgy official of some kind. Be patient and prepared to be flexible.


Finances are a sore spot in your chart right now. It is all you can do to make ends meet, and you are burning the candle at both ends. Your attitudes towards money, values, debts and finances are undergoing powerful changes. Push yourself, you can overcome the challenges.


You may be disappointed when a romantic attraction does not go your way, but it may prove to be a blessing in disguise. You may not get the attention from the one you wanted at first, but that will leave room for someone or something much better to come into your life.

Sunday, May 13, 2012

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Not only is this a good day to throw a tantrum, but there’s a good chance that you might set a new distance record!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Good day to begin that toothpick sculpture you’ve been thinking of. You’ll be the only private individual (aside from Martha Stewart) who orders toothpicks by the case. Martha goes through several boxes just sticking breakfast together, I hear.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
This will be “one of those days”, I’m afraid. The person next to you on the bus will have taken one of those nitroglycerin capsules for his heart condition, and will be bending over to pick up a newspaper, just as the bus hits a big pothole…
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Today you will find yourself boldly charging through life. That can actually get you in trouble, though, so you should really attempt to pay with cash.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Today you will be overcome with a sudden strong urge to learn to play a wooden flute while cavorting around in the forest. I recommend you treat those separately at first. You’ll find what you need under “Music, Instruction” and under “Cavorting, Instruction.” Don’t get talked into buying any cavorting supplies, though — they’re really only needed by professionals.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Today you will discover that there is nothing more silly than a silly laugh. A silly nose wiggle ranks pretty highly, though.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
As a joke, you will put a remote controlled monster under someone’s bed. That will be really funny, although perhaps not quite as funny as when they put a real monster under yours.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Excellent day to come up with new theories to explain the universe around you. Remember: the simplest explanation is usually the best. For example, most physicists today subscribe to the “Big Band” theory of the creation of the universe. I have an alternate theory that I prefer, which I call “Tuba Ensemble”.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Everyone you work with will bring Kim Chee for lunch, today. They’re just doing it to be difficult.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
You will discover a new “5th law” of Thermodynamics. The first law says “you can’t win”. The second law says “you can’t break even”. The 5th law, however, says “never draw to an inside straight”.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
In one of those amusing misunderstandings that often happen due to bad phone connections, you will show up to go on a hike with something unexpected. If you stop and think about it, you’ll realise that it isn’t that likely someone would say “It may be cold, so be sure to bring a goat.”
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
This week you will feel like corn. Just not like having any.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Sunday, May 13

One of the advantages of reading this calendar on a daily basis is that you can prepare for an upcoming event several days before-hand. In the last couple of days, you have been given the alert that the Sun was getting closer and closer to joining forces with Jupiter. Now that merger becomes a reality at 6:24AM PDT – energizing 24 degrees of Taurus. This occurs less than two hours after the Moon has left a void cycle in Aquarius by entering compassionate and empathic Pisces (4:43AM PDT). The combination of the two largest celestial bodies in the solar system reaching their annual conjunction while the Moon embraces one of Jupiter’s traditional ruling signs (Pisces) indicates that advanced and divine dynamics may be at play. The question is whether mere mortals can harness the fire of the gods and goddesses with the alignments going on right now. Helping you tap into cosmic substance – via the water and fire principles – is the Moon uniting with Neptune (10:25AM PDT) and Mercury forming a flowing trine with Mars (1:55PM PDT). Overall, the universe appears to be offering you great opportunities to take a giant leap forward in your main fields of expertise. Some additional hassles or concerns may appear later on when the Moon makes its monthly opposition to Mars (8:49PM PDT) while Mercury forms a frictional, 45-degree tie with Venus (8:57PM PDT). You should also note that Venus is rapidly slowing down its forward motion in Gemini as it prepares to stop and go into reverse on Tuesday morning May 15. Steep yourself in some of the masterpieces of metaphysics as the Moon unites with Chiron in Pisces (10:30PM PDT) and Mercury approaches a mind-enriching trine to profound Pluto (forming exactly at 1:10AM PDT tomorrow morning).

A Very Happy & Blessed Mother’s Day To All My Dear Friends!

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone! I hope you have a very beautiful day today. Enjoy your family today and don’t take a moment you have with them for granted.

On another note, I must apologize for yesterday. WordPress was doing some work on the blog. They have a section were they feature blogs that are using certain templates. They were transferring this one over to that section. They wanted to feature it because I am currently using this template. Doing this caused some screw-ups that I wasn’t expecting. I got upset when I couldn’t correct the front page and everything I did just made it worse. So I quit posting before I screwed everything up. I am sorry and I will make it up to you today, I promise.

Now back to today…….

Happy Mother’s Day to all my beloved friends!

Enjoy your family and your day!
