Earth Mother, Giver of life
Strengthen me during my life-long strife.
Teach me your ways of perfect love,
peace, and wisdom true.
Spawn from my purest heart
These words to you
May this prayer help me to better
myself in word and deed,
To a higher plane I shall succeed.
Beautiful light of goodness fair

A Witch’s brew, I drink to you
My love for you, by day, by night
In thought and in sight
Will my soul learn
the meaning of this life again

Daily Feng Shui News for Mar. 31st – ‘Bunsen Burner Day’

On ‘Bunsen Burner Day’ let’s take a look at ways that Feng Shui says fire can heat up certain energies in your life. Fire is the element most associated with the Feng Shui ‘Fame’ arena, so if you’re looking for some positive recognition and accompanying rewards, then you should burn nine red candles in that ‘Fame’ space. This area most associated with honor and promotion is located in the back middle or back center of the main wall of your home or office. According to this tradition, red is believed to be the color ascribed to fire and the number nine symbolizes completion. So if you’re looking to heat up your reputation, look no further than the back of your own house.

Your Tarot Card for March 31st is The Hermit

The Hermit

Monday, Mar 31st, 2014











The challenge of what has traditionally been known as the Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals and Nature herself.

While the hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit cards, more modern ones have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with Nature.

Daily Overview of Your Horoscopes for March 31st

Daily Overview of Your Chinese Horoscope

March 31, 2014


You may be rather overprotective or even jealous. It is not wise to give all your love to one person and not to others. Practice showing concern for each person you encounter. There is no reason to feel insecure, especially in a close relationship. Strive to maintain a balance.




Your Weekly Love Horoscopes for March 31st

Tension fills the air early in the week, making it impossible for relationships to go smoothly. On Wednesday, the Sun will conjunct Uranus, activating the urge for rebellion and independence. Then, on Thursday, the Sun will be at an angry square to Pluto. This energy may bring on conflict and power struggles in your personal life. If, for example, you feel like someone has the upper hand at the office, you may try to compensate by wielding power on your mate in an unfair way. Thankfully, Venus will enter Pisces on Saturday, and until May 2 we’ll feel more inspired to enjoy romance and spiritual connections in matters of the heart.

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your drive for autonomy may prove too difficult to pursue while you’re in a relationship. Even if you’re happy with your mate, it appears as if you’ll require a significant amount of breathing room this week. Consider taking a “time out” from love, whether you’re single or attached, and that way you can focus on your personal priorities without any added drama. If you’re in a relationship, your mate already knows how important independence is to you. Hopefully, he or she will understand. Otherwise, you might begin to feel suffocated.


Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

With Venus moving into gentle Pisces this week, you’ll feel a distinct shift in your love nature. What will happen from Saturday until May 2 is that you’ll enjoy social encounters more, and this will usher in new and exciting romantic prospects. You might decide to accept a friend’s invitation to set you up on a blind date with someone he or she believes is a perfect soul mate for you. Or, you may consider that your feelings for a friend have blossomed into something more than just a platonic relationship.


Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You might meet someone special who shares your goals and ambitions. If so, there might be a potential romance in the making … but it will need to be one that you keep out of the bedroom for a bit. This is because, although Venus may provide an opportunity for you to fall in love, Mars — the planet that rules sex — is still traveling retrograde in your true love sector. This may put a wrinkle in your sex life if you initiate a sexual relationship with anyone new until after Mars turns direct. May 19 is not too far away. It’ll be worth the wait.


Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

All of the career opportunity you’ve got going on might blow up an existing power struggle between you and your mate this week. On Tuesday, your partner will likely alternate between feeling optimistic about your prospects to feeling overwhelmed at the changes they imply regarding your relationship. Time will continue to be a scarce commodity as you move forward professionally, and balancing partnership, family and personal pursuits along with your career goals may be impossible. At least for a while. 


Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

If you’re in the midst of a divorce, there may be legal tension ahead. Wednesday and Thursday in particular may prove to be rattling as there may be an unexpected development in the proceedings. Do your best to remain focused on cooperating with the process, and remember that the only way out of this situation is to go through it. Fortunately, after Saturday Venus will enter the area of your chart that rules shared resources. You may receive a favorable settlement after all. If attached, your mate could receive news of a raise.


Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

If you’re tempted to use sex as a weapon this week, it’s a guarantee you’ll be hurt. On Thursday, a nasty square between the Sun and Pluto (now in your true love sector) might bring on a power play between you and your sweetheart. Instead of working through it, you may choose to act in a more passive-aggressive way, withholding affection instead. Don’t! Thankfully, love planet Venus will enter your partnership sector on Saturday. You and your mate will have much better bliss potential until May 2.


Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Unexpected changes in partnership will continue. A recent New Moon in your relationship sector this past Sunday guaranteed a fresh start, but because it’s filled with tension it might not be all that you bargained for. On Wednesday, the Sun will connect with Uranus in your house of commitment, making you question whether or not a traditional union works for you any longer. Then, on Thursday, this revelation may have consequences on the home front. If single, after Saturday and until May 2 you may have an office romance blossom.


Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Tension at the office may distract you from romance all week, but after Saturday you can count on a pleasant change of circumstances. By then Venus, the planet of love, will enter your romance sector, where she will remain until May 2. This annual transit of Venus in this part of your chart is one of the most supportive cycles to help you meet someone new. Be sure to go out and put yourself in a position to meet new and interesting people. Because Venus will be in Pisces, you’ll feel most attracted to artistic, musical or spiritual souls.


Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Love may be a battlefield for you this week. Although you’ll have an extraordinary level of excitement, all of those sparks may come at a heavy price. A recent New Moon in your true love sector on Sunday ushered in opportunity for you to meet someone new. The problem is that in addition to the lunation itself being a stressful one, this week there are difficult planetary aspects happening to amplify the tension. A love triangle is possible, or a jealous ex. Avoid a one-night stand because it’s something you’ll surely regret in the morning.


Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

There is so much happening at home that it might put a dent in your relationship harmony this week. Unexpected developments in your domestic world might unnerve you, and you may expect your partner to make everything right. Don’t put that kind of pressure on your mate. It’s not only unfair, but it’ll be unrealistic. He or she is likely to feel just as affected by what’s happening as you are. The good news is that after Saturday you’ll have an easier time communicating harmoniously. Until then, avoid major decisions if possible.


Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may shock your sweetheart this week with your words. Unexpected conversations, decisions or declarations may throw your relationship into a tailspin. At first, the impact may feel jarring, but on Wednesday you’re also likely to feel as if getting this information out into the open has the potential to revolutionize your love connection in the most invigorating way. Sometimes you have to shake things up to keep the blood flowing. That’s what may happen this week in your love life.


Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

After a difficult and distracting week of putting out fires in your financial life, you’ll be glad to know a reward will arrive on Saturday. By then Venus, the planet of love, beauty and harmony, will enter your sign, where she’ll remain until May 2. During this phase your powers of attraction are enhanced, allowing romantic opportunities to flourish. If single, more than one person may express interest. If attached, your mate will fall in love with you all over again.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, March 31st

We are itching with anticipation today and our thoughts are already racing ahead to next month. But our over-the-top optimism prompts us to set our sights so high that we could meet disappointment sooner than we expect. Although our confidence levels soar, our intuition tells us that a surprise may be lurking around the next corner. Nevertheless, the enterprising Aries Moon reminds us that we can’t sit by idly waiting for something to happen.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Striking up the band and leading a parade might be your idea of fun today, because you want to get people up and moving with you. But the Aries Moon opposes combative Mars in your 7th House of Others, indicating the need to soften your message. Although music can raise the vibration, it’s more effective to lower your volume so your friends don’t have to cover their ears and miss out on what you are saying. Remember, not everyone is feeling as playful as you are now, so don’t take it personally if they don’t want to join in your game.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You are not happy if a coworker is on your case, but defending yourself is a common reaction with your obstinate nature. Unfortunately, you may not be all that comfortable handling this awkward situation today. It’s easier to hide your anger than to confront the origin of the problem. Keep in mind that this emotional retreat is not a cowardly act. Your self-restraint is wise now; otherwise you might lose control and create additional damage instead of leaving well enough alone. It takes real courage to walk away.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You need to watch the way you interact with people today or your current intensity may appear overly aggressive to others. You might even think that you are being extremely logical, only to have someone tell you that your ideas are too outrageous for them to follow. Instead of ranting about all the details, speak softer and say less. You really don’t have to use that many words now to get your point across if you choose the right ones. There’s no need to do a sales job when you have authenticity on your side.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You could surprise someone with your ability to defend your choices today. You may be willing to listen to the feedback you receive, but once you’ve heard what someone else has to offer, your reaction is strong and swift. Although you are uniquely sensitive of the needs of others, be careful about diluting the strength of your argument by attempting to placate everyone’s concerns. People will be suitable impressed when they see you stand up for your beliefs.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Putting your best ideas on the table for all to see is not an alien concept to you. However, there is so much expressive energy floating around today that you may not know when to stop your self-promotion. Your confidence motivates you to be so assertive that you might offend even your strongest allies. It’s much easier to gain support once you remember that you don’t have to shout just to get your message across. A laid-back approach will take you further now than a pushy one.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It seems like there’s too much drama in your life now, triggering a turning point in your relationships. Someone’s negativity boils over and then everything goes silent. But don’t mistake less noise for less intensity; it could be just the opposite. There’s no reason to feel so much anger that you say things you don’t really mean. Withdraw your energy until you have regained your strength and composure. Stepping back to create a bit of space gives everyone a chance to cool off.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You’re a natural people-pleaser and can be preoccupied with making everyone else happy. But the Sun and Moon are dancing with wild Uranus in your 7th House of Partners now, prompting you to blurt out what you want without thinking about the impact of your words. Don’t let anyone stand between you and your goals; setting well-defined boundaries ensures healthier relationships in the future. Taking a risk and revealing your needs can create the breakthrough that you’ve wanted all along.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re able to start new tasks at work today without becoming overly obsessed with the details or other people’s expectations. Unfortunately, follow-through becomes a problem if you don’t keep up your initial momentum. Once you slow down you could lose track of your direction, so ask your friends and associates to either lend a helping hand or simply get out of your way. You may be surprised at how much you accomplish if you’re willing to focus on the big picture.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You might be feeling a sense of urgency today, but don’t expect others to share your concerns. Although your friends know that you can wax philosophic with the best of them, they’re not very patient as you enthusiastically ramble on about something that may be significant only to you. Your ideas are flowing fast and furious now, making it tricky to tell which ones are worth pursuing. Don’t become too attached to any one thought until you see how it stands up to the test of time.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You feel emboldened to pull rank at work today, but you could easily overdo it. The idea of demonstrating your authority can be so enticing now that you may lose sight of your original intent to get ahead. Nevertheless, success doesn’t stem from maintaining control; manifesting your dreams is dependent on innovation and collaboration, and not status. Remember, the whole is greater than the sum of its individual parts.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The power of your positive thoughts motivates others, but your enthusiasm could be off the charts today. However, blind optimism isn’t of much use at all. If someone thinks you can’t discern fact from fiction, there’s a good chance that he or she will lose faith in your entire message. You can muster support for your plan by being as realistic as possible now. Although everyone wants to hear good news, it’s more important for you to be completely honest. The truth will set you free.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Creating new strategies to increase your income should be top priority today with the Sun, Moon and brilliant Uranus moving through your 2nd House of Self-Worth. You have plenty of enterprising ideas about how to generate wealth, but are not sure that any of them will work. Asking for a second opinion from someone you trust is a smart move now. A bit of unconventional wisdom may be all you need to get the ball rolling

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, March 31st

You may remember that March began with a cacophony of cosmic disturbances as Mars, Vesta and Saturn all appeared to stop from the Earth’s vantage point and began various cycles of being in retrograde motion. Now this month is ending with some celestial sparks and boisterous fireworks displays as the Moon in Aries opposes Mars in Libra (8:22AM) followed quickly by the Sun parallel electrical Uranus (8:49AM). While emotional and intuitive energies are flying fast and could still be exhilarating, there is a greater chance that the mood monster is now being let loose upon unsuspecting individuals, couples, groups and communities. A supportive, 60-degree link from the Moon to Venus (1:08PM) attempts to bring order out of chaos, but this alignment also begins a 9+ hour void-of-course lunar cycle that lasts until 10:21PM (when the Moon enters the fixed-earth sign of Taurus). Strive to be a pillar of strength during the void twilight zone for colleagues, friends and family who are beginning to pick up on a start to April that could rival the onset of March. April 1 to 3 will bring the Sun into a square to Jupiter, a conjunction with Uranus, and another square to Pluto — along with at least 9 other, highly-charged and challenging sky patterns. The moral of this astrological-zodiacal story is not to let this last day of March become an early April Fools’ joke undermining your own well-being in the shift from the third to the fourth month of 2014. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Daylight Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Current Moon Phase for March 31st – New Moon

New Moon

(waxing/1% of illumination)

The New Moon is a time best suited for new beginnings! For the first 48 hours following the exact time of the New Moon each month, a window of opportunity opens for making wishes that, if noted, come true in the days and months ahead. There is a tremendous amount of enthusiasm in the atmosphere, making it a great time to go forward and begin projects that you feel instinctively attracted to initiating. Follow your impulses and let yourself make new starts in areas that are important to you.

Witch’s Magick for Monday, March 31st – Self Empowerment Spell

Fantasy Comments & Graphics
Witch’s Magick for Monday, March 31st – Self Empowerment Spell


 Self-Empowerment Spell

This is a fairly simple spell, and of course you should change it according to your tastes.


Items you will need:

–1 white candle (probably the bigger the better)

The candle should be cleansed before you begin, and could be infused with white energy, the energy of love and strength. Meditate upon your intentions before you begin. why do you need to empower yourself? Is it because you wish to realize the beauty within yourself,
or you wish others to see the beauty or strength you know that lies within you.

This spell also works best if you do a cleansing of yourself, whether it is bath or shower or just visualize all of the negativity that you are carrying with you washing away.

The candle should be placed in front of the mirror, and the mirror should face you. Light the candle. Feel the positive energy emanating from the candle. If you worship a deity, call upon them to help you. Chant:

I walk in beauty with the Goddess.
I am strength. I am beauty. I am will. I am love.
She is within me. All who see me, know Her.
So Mote It Be.

Let’s Talk Witch – The Many Flavors of Witchcraft

Let’s Talk Witch – The Many Flavors of Witchcraft


Yes, flavors. I ran across that word the other day describing something (I don’t remember what) but I found the word fascinating. When I stopped to think about it this morning, Witchcraft does come in many flavors. There are numerous different Paths/Tradition in Witchcraft. But we all call ourselves Witches. We unite under that title as Witch.

I decided to revisit several of those different Paths/Traditions today. We have several newcomers to the Craft. I figured this might be helpful to them. At least it will give them an idea of where their interests might lay. If you have been practicing Witchcraft for a while, see if your tradition is listed. If not, give us a brief description of your Path/Tradition. If you would like to add something to these descriptions, feel free. I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!

Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Roman Festival of Luna

On this day the Roman festival of Luna celebrated the Goddess of the Full Moon whose temple on the Aventine Hill was the focus of worship. As the Goddess of the Moon, Luna represents growing awareness, the fulfillment of love, and the mystery of enchantment. She is at once both lover and mother to her suitors and is identified with Diana and Selene.
