Current Moon Phase for July 25 – Full Moon

Full Moon

(waning/75% illumination)

A veil of self-absorption is lifted and suddenly you gain access to an unbiased view of others. This is a rare moment when you can see yourself objectively and become aware of whether or not what you want in your heart is actually beginning to manifest in your life. Traditionally, the Full Moon phase stirs emotion, and this is because when you “see” what is happening, you may become upset if you’re experiencing the “same ole, same ole” — rather than the things you would like. If the Full Moon phase is a disappointment, on the next New Moon it’s time to take creative action in the direction of your dreams.

The Witches Spell for July 25th – A Spell to Turn Up the Heat

Book & Candle Comments

A Spell to Turn Up the Heat

Has the spark gone out of your relationship This spell uses spices to add spice to your love life, along with fire to heat up things between you and your partner.


A fireplace, balefire pit, barbecue grill, hibachi, or other place where you can light a fire safely Matches or a lighter

A piece of paper A pen that writes red ink

Cayenne pepper

Mustard seeds




Bay leaves

When: During the waxing moon, preferably on a Tuesday

Safely build a small fire. On the paper, write what you find enticing about your partner and what you desire from him or her. Be as descriptive and explicit as you like— no one but you will read what you’ve written. When you’ve finished, draw the runes Gabon, which looks like an X, and Tiwaz, which looks like an arrow pointing up, around the edges of the paper. These two symbols represent love and passion, respectively.

Place the spices on the piece of paper and fold it to make a packet that contains them. Visualize you and your lover in a passionate embrace. As you hold this image in your mind, toss the packet of spices into the fire. As it burns, your intention is released into the universe.

Let’s talk Witch – Wild Magick

Gothic Comments

Let’s talk Witch – Wild Magick

Wild Magick The definition of Wild Magick is very broad. Essentially, the Wild Witch seeks to defend nature, deepen her understanding of the wild, use this understanding as a spiritual tool, and then educate others regarding the state of the earth and how to preserve it. That’s a pretty big job, but one that many Witches, Wiccans, and Neo-Pagans embrace. Wild Magick deals specifically with those moments when the “wild” world touches our nine-to-five reality in intimate ways. Animals represent a big part of that picture, especially the Witch’s pets and familiars. Try the following strategy, a type of “wild” divination that relies on reading signs: Observe your pet’s behavior with visitors in your home. It might give you some insights about your visitors you wouldn’t otherwise get on your own, perhaps because animal reactions are based on instinct.

Outside the home, Wild Magick transforms a bit, especially when you’re in a natural environment. For example, if a Witch observes gulls circling above a group of fisherman with their daily catch, he might gather up a stray feather and add it to his power pouch, in order to inspire extended vision, especially when hunting (figuratively). This, too, is Wild Magick: taking a gift from nature and applying it positively to your spiritual life.

Today's Tarot Card for July 25th is The Hierophant

The Hierophant

Thursday, Jul 25th, 2013








Traditionally known as the Hierophant, this card refers to a Master and the learning of practical lessons from the study of Natural Law. This energy of this card points to some agent or resource that can reveal the secrets of life, the cycles of the moon and tides, the links between human beings and the heavens.

Because monasteries were the only places a person could learn to read and write in the middle ages, a Hierophant was one to whom a student would petition for entry. He was the one to set the curriculum for the neophyte’s course of study.

Often pictured with the right hand raised in blessing, the Hierophant is linked with the ancient lineage of Melchezidek, initiator of the Hebrew priestly tradition, the one who passes on the teachings. All shamans of any tradition draw upon this archetype.

Happy Birthday, Leo!

Happy Birthday, Leo!

Three cheers for the bold, bright and boisterous Lion

Maria DeSimone

Maria DeSimone on the topics of leo, birthdays, astrology

It’s your birthday, Leo, and you want the world to know it! That’s right; you’re not ashamed to admit that you want to feel like the center of attention on your special day. Hey, you deserve it. After all, you spend plenty of time making others feel exceptional, so why not get some of that ego boosting goodness delivered right back atcha? Either way, you’re ready to party into the night and enjoy every drop of birthday goodness.

Pride of the Lion

Indeed, no other sign exudes love, warmth and joy the way you do, Leo. You’ve got a talent for simply being in anyone’s presence and making them tremble with instant jolts of happy.  Since you’ve also got plenty of pride, however, you do expect admiration in return. If your light beams aren’t met with appreciation or if you feel disrespected then watch out — you will roar! Also, a born leader, you prefer to rule the land — something you do quite well. Just remember to be a noble leader since you may have a tendency towards bossy bursts of superiority.

You tend to shower those you love with extravagant, impressive gifts. And when it’s your birthday, you certainly appreciate the same attention to showiness. Drama is your middle name and if there’s not a party in your honor this year, you’ll be happy to make a night on the town attending a play, concert or other fun, entertaining event. As long as you’re given plenty of attention and applause, you’ll continue to beam joy out to the world. Leo, on your birthday, there’s only one word that counts: celebration. It’s time to rejoice in YOU!

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, July 25th

Self-confidence is wonderful, but too much of a good thing can be problematic now as the imaginative Pisces Moon harmonizes with excessive Jupiter, assertive Mars and talkative Mercury. Once again, the magic dance between make-it-real Saturn and make-it-up Neptune inspires us to realize our dreams. However, communication is vital to reach our goals. Even if we’re feeling optimistic about the future, our behavior is likely to be more conservative.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re riding on a high horse today and you might not be willing to heed the advice of anyone else. Unfortunately, you could be your own worst enemy if you also forget to listen to your heart. If you are absolutely certain about your recent choices, it may be difficult to even consider someone’s negative feelings simmering beneath the surface now. Slow down just enough to hear your inner voice since it’s healthier to integrate emotions as they arise. Once you’re in sync with yourself it’s easier to be more mindful of others.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You have something important to get off your chest today. Fortunately, a little compassion will go a long way when it comes to sharing your thoughts. It’s not that you are being particularly insensitive, but your feelings are inflated and you may be so emphatic in your expression that others can’t understand what you are trying to say. Step back and take a few breaths before flying off the handle. The good news is that speaking your truth will work out for the best if you remember that everyone is ultimately on the same team.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Pay close attention to your pocketbook, for your inclination now is toward extravagance. The problem is that you may feel so confident that everything appears to be coming up roses. But be careful … you can tend toward overspending what you have or over-committing what you do not have. If you remember to respect your limits and apply your enthusiasm to the details, you will end up in a much better financial position. A penny saved is a penny earned.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Other people may encourage you today while still secretly plotting against you. Perhaps a coworker or acquaintance is being extra nice to you now in an effort to cover his or her own tracks. Luckily, you’re capable of doing magic regardless of anyone else’s actions. Instead of wondering what is going on behind the scenes, just give your best performance. Luckily, your enthusiasm and talent, combined with a relentless determination, empowers you to breeze right past an ill-conceived roadblock, impressing your audience along the way.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The greatest thoughts are of little value unless they are brought out into the open for everyone to see. Share your creative ideas now, for they are more worthwhile than you realize. Recognizing your own power enables you to motivate an entire group by what you choose to say. Even if your innovation becomes unrecognizable as it evolves, you can still feel happy about contributing to the process. Sometimes being a catalyst is the most important role you can play.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Turning up the volume on your own intuitive voice today prevents you from responding too quickly to the actions of others. You will be better off by acting on what you actually need, but you must quiet down enough to figure out how you really feel. Timing is everything … swing into action once you truly know what your heart wants. Your exuberance is contagious and you could end up leading the pack. Even if your idea is a bit of a gamble, it still can work out as long as it’s grounded in reality.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It may feel like you’ve been treading water recently, without making much progress. Now, however, the tide is shifting, the clouds are lifting, and you can see blue sky and many possibilities on the horizon. Still, you have a big choice in front of you that may determine which way you should go. It’s challenging to make this kind of life-changing decision, but not because you lack confidence or conviction. Instead, it’s simply because you cannot do everything all at once. Fortunately, the process of elimination helps you narrow your options.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are drawing your personal power from a deep well today, and others can’t help but stand up and take notice. You may find yourself embroiled in a conflict with someone close to you because of your current intensity. Thankfully, an unpleasant situation can be resolved to everyone’s benefit if you choose to travel the high road of integrity. A lively debate or even sexual fireworks with an intimate partner could open a path to a happy resolution.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

It’s not easy to relinquish control, yet you should come out ahead if you moderate the expectations you place on yourself. Nevertheless, it’s so tempting to get swept up in someone’s grandiose scheme today that you can promise the sky before you realize what happened. Set your goals high enough to motivate yourself, but not so high that you end up discouraged. It’s better to build a strong foundation than a hastily constructed tower.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are on a personal mission and have specific tasks to complete today. Woe to anyone who gets in your way as you try to complete your appointed rounds. It’s a special gift to have the inner drive needed to do the work, even though there may be little recognition now for a job well done. It’s okay … you really don’t need any peer acknowledgment to feel good about yourself. Nevertheless, continue on your path without worrying about everyone else. Ultimately, your work will speak for itself.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Quite a lot of change is being packed into a short amount of time these days. Yesterday, you weren’t sure about a relationship. Today, you are raring to go and there is no holding you back. If you are already involved with someone special, you can enjoy the day as you combine your romantic optimism with a practical approach to make things last. Or if there’s a new person catching your eye, you could be ready to make your move. In any event, your spontaneity might set you on a new and exciting course.

Daily Correspondence for Thursday, July 25th

Try to accomplish your key errands and plans in the early hours as the Moon in Pisces starts a long, 26+ hour void cycle at 11:44AM PDT that lasts until 2:30PM PDT tomorrow.  Before the lunar orb enters its void uncertainty zone, communications — as well as literary and educational endeavors — are vitalized by a Sun-Mercury parallel (7:14AM PDT). Healing forces are back on the march — courtesy of the monthly union of the Moon with Chiron (9:21AM PDT). The hours building up to 11:44AM PDT are also highly favorable for a variety of discussions and correspondence as the Moon is approaching one of two, monthly trines to Mercury. However, once the void Moon condition takes hold at 11:44AM PDT, it makes sense to complete odd jobs and old projects rather than attempt to initiate bold, new enterprises.  Enjoy time-outs for reflection and contemplation since the next two days will present a wide array of celestial challenges — including several discordant aspects by Venus as well as a tension-building Mars-Pluto opposition on Saturday that occurs only a few hours before the Sun squares Saturn. Immerse yourself in film or literary classics tonight that can carry you away to imaginative realms of fantasy and adventure.
