Calendar of the Moon for May 30th

Dark Moon Night

Color: Black
Element: Air
Altar: Upon a black cloth set a single black candle, incense, an iron sickle laid to mimic the direction of the waning moon, a cup of water, a lock of silver hair, and a white bone.
Offerings: Bones. Stones. Menstrual blood. Give something up.
Daily Meal: Soup of some sort, cooked in a cauldron, eaten in silence.

Dark Moon Invocation

At this time, in the dark of the moon,
When the Silver Lady ages
To an old woman in the dark,
Haunting crossroads, working magic,
Stirring her cauldron
Of poison that heals,
Grandmother Moon of sorcery
And wisdom, who sees all
And reveals little to our searching eyes.
Moon of Death, Moon of mystery,
Moon of silence who hides her face,
Let us learn silence from your averted gaze
Let us learn patience from your aging face
Let us feel for the dark places within us
And find our way down your path in the darkness
Which is utter and complete
But not impenetrable.
As darkness wraps us,
So silence heals us.
As darkness finds us,
So silence guides us.
As darkness speaks,
So silence falls.

(The candle is blown out, and all leave in silence. From the beginning of this rite at Hesperis until the dawn, silence will rule in the house. Talking must be done only in whispers, and between no more than two people, and only for that which is necessary. Long meditation is encouraged, and all work must be done quietly if possible. The evening meal should be eaten by candlelight, and only candles may light the house, except for the sake of certain important work.)

Calendar of the Sun for May 30th

30 Thrimilchimonath

Meinherjar: Feast of Valhalla

Color: Red
Element: Fire
Altar: Upon a red cloth lay many weapons, a horn of mead, and four red candles.
Offering: Tend the graves of the honored dead.
Daily Meal: Beef.

Meinherjar Invocation

Hail to the fallen dead!
Hail to the brave ones
Who fought to the end,
Whether the enemy was disease
Or failure of the body
Or weariness of soul
Or the hate of another.
Hail to those who fell
Guarding the helpless and weak!
Hail to those who fell
Defending the land of their ancestors!
Hail to those who fell
Righting great wrongs!
Hail to those who fell
Succumbing to the powers
Of the creeping deaths
And their dark cousins.
Show us the truth, legions of Valhalla!
The only straw death,
The only dishonorable death,
Is one where Death is met
Not as an honorable opponent
Or a welcome bridegroom
But as a fearsome master
To be groveled before.
Give us your courage, legions of Valhalla!

(The horn of mead is passed around, and each names a member of the fallen dead that they particularly respect. The rest is poured out as a libation to the dead. Each steps forward, takes a weapon from the altar, and bears it from the room in honor.)

Current Moon Phase for May 30th – First Quarter

Moon Phases: First Quarter Moon

(waxing 90-135 degrees)

by Jan Spiller

Emotions begin to stir coupled with recognizing that the new beginnings you are making must also increase personal security to be worthwhile over the long haul. This is a time when it’s appropriate to get in touch with your gut instincts and begin to guide your life more deliberately, with an awareness of using your “6th sense” as well as your enthusiasm. Obstacles may emerge that require you to reevaluate how to better integrate yourself into your immediate environment.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for May 30th

Your creative artistic expression receives a notable boost as Venus makes an inspirational, 72-degree link to high-flying Uranus (12:52AM PDT). Some of these positive vibes could get lost in the shuffle because the Moon is in void mode in Virgo until 3:47AM PDT when the lunar orb enters airy Libra. Once the Moon enters Libran territory, strive to increase the value of your investments as Mercury makes a subtle and yet still supportive, 30-degree link to Vesta (5:21AM PDT). Healing forces are highlighted at 10:06AM PDT when the Sun squares Chiron. The question here is whether you can tweak the healing vibes in order that you successfully treat and repair old wounds and pains. If you are looking for trouble, you will undoubtedly find it around the time when the Moon makes its monthly opposition to Uranus (4:58PM PDT) quickly followed by a 90-degree struggle between Mercury in Gemini and Mars in Virgo (5:21PM PDT). Mental and emotional hassles can lead to a rise in temperamental conditions across the board. Don’t project anger on to well-meaning friends and loved ones. Find ways to negotiate agreements and settlements even with hard-nosed competitors and adversaries – if possible. Let the good times roll several hours later as the Moon forms a flowing trine of 120-degrees in air signs with the Sun (8:49PM PDT). Dismiss the moody blues by replacing ornery attitudes with a happy and enthusiastic disposition. You can feel the illuminating vibrations coming from tomorrow morning’s inspirational, 72-degree connection from Mercury to Pallas.

Good, What? Is It Wednesday Already? Time Flies…..

Good Wednesday morning, my dear friends! And Razzy says,”Good Morning too!” I thought I would show you why I run late some mornings (like today, lol!). It was peace and quiet this morning, I sit down to work on the blog. Guess who showed up? Razzy! She had heard a train whistle blow and she didn’t know what it was. She came running in here to let me know there was something strange in our yard. Yeah, right about a mile away. She hops up in my lap and it is automatically “make me feel secure and loved.” Of course, being the good mother I am, I couldn’t refuse. So we nuzzled and nuzzled the whole time, I worked on the Josephine Wall’s page. Razzy picked out the graphics so I (excuse me, we) hope you like them.

Anyway I wanted to wish you a “Good Morning and A Blessed Afternoon!” Also to show off my baby brat.

Now on with the show…….
