ANALYSIS: The sun is held sacred by almost every religion in the world. Its light and warmth symbolize life and growth and all that is good. Norse cosmology describes the sun being driven around the heavens in a chariot and chased by a great wolf, which will devour at Ragnarok. Throughout IndoEuropean Paganism, the sun has frequently been associated with the horse, often described as being carted around the sky by a horse. Both are symbolic of life and fertility, and are usually considered ‘masculine’ in polarity, although in Norse myth the chariot is driven by a girl. The swastika or sun wheel is a constant motif in rock carvings dating Neolithic times, and occurs throughout Europe and Asia. The sun rune itself is a variation on this symbol, and represents motion and energy.
Sowulo marks the end of the second aett, and like wunjo represents success and glory. However, unlike the rest and relaxation of Valhalla, the sun is very much an active symbol. We have reached the end of the aett successfully, and the conclusion is a positive one, but in this case we are fully aware of the changing and transient nature of the universe. We can see the wolf at heels, and we know that we must move on. Here, though, the journeyer may pause briefly in the warmth and light of the sun, absorbing and applying its energy to the work ahead. This time we won’t need to be blasted out of our safe position, but will rather choose to leave it in order to continue on the journey.
The Hierophant represents the protector of a culture’s heritage and traditions. His purpose is to defend and teach the established ways and beliefs a group embraces. He is inherently conventional and a true believer in the power of the group. He loves the structure of the group and its values. It is the task of The Hierophant to bring new members into the group—to prepare the uninitiated to take their rightful place in his culture. In this sense he is very much like a teacher or a priest. He also acts as the repository of his group’s history. The Hierophant is certainly not one to buck proper authority. However, he is staunch and worthy defender of the tried and true. He represents the positive aspects of conformity.
When The Emperor is among your personal cards, the influence of The Hierophant may be increased. Having The Fool or The Lovers in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Hierophant.
The Lovers indicates both the most powerful of unions and the most of challenging conflicts humans must face. On one side The Lover’s embodies love and union on a cosmic scale—a love so strong, so inherently good that it actually makes the lovers better, more than they really are. All of the elements are there for the perfect union. The Lovers represent all powerful unions in general, and the elements that create/sustain them. The problem The Lovers face is temptation and the decision to act morally or abandon their ethics to take advantage of other opportunities that would be defined as transgressions.
The Lovers’ influence is increased when The Empress is among your personal cards. Having The Hierophant or The Hermit in your personal cards may diminish the influence of the Lovers.

Today and tomorrow are strong for family activities, home life, and endeavors that remind you of the need for comfort and familiarity, dear Aries. This can be a nice change after busy days. Even so, there is great energy with you today for creative vision. You can more easily envision what you want to create, and you can feel very inspired and motivated as a result. It’s a good day for setting goals and thinking about the future. Plans may not be meticulous and detail-oriented now, but they’re broad and intelligent.
Emotional satisfaction today and tomorrow tends to come from keeping yourself busy, mental stimulation, reaching out and connecting with others, and learning new things, dear Taurus. This may not be the best day for concentration, as you’re so curious that it’s very easy to get distracted, but right now you seem to need the change, movement, and variety involved. There is one area that grabs your attention more than others, and that is family or home matters, as you can be feeling quite inspired as you make plans for the future in these areas.
In some ways, you are riding on the energy of the New Moon in your sign that occurred yesterday, dear Gemini. You can be feeling especially alive, vital, and inspired. Your ideas right now may very well be golden, and you seem to have the cooperation and support of important people in your life. Even so, there is a stronger emotional desire to settle in just for now with the Moon in your resources sector nudging your attention towards some of the more practical details of your recent plans.
The Moon is in your sign all day today and tomorrow, dear Cancer, and this brings your emotions out of hiding and into the light. You’re a little more vulnerable emotionally, as you crave a feeling of connectedness with others. Put your stamp on the day as you begin a new lunar cycle. Today, plans may come together with finances, work, or other practical matters. Good energy is with you for identifying redundancies in spending as well.
The Moon in your privacy sector all day today and tomorrow suggests some need for down time or solitude, dear Leo. This is a strong day for creative pursuits, so that tuning out distractions is even more productive. Plans seem to be coming together, and you’re especially able to see the bigger picture and the larger design. You might also have a strong sense that you have the support of friends or a team, even if you are taking more time to yourself. It’s a fine time to help guide others.
Your need to feel connected to a group, friend, or a cause is strong today and tomorrow, dear Virgo, but a lot is going on in your domestic and personal life. You are able to draw upon your intuition in order to draw up plans, frameworks, or designs, and you might be especially creative when it comes to domestic affairs, although all areas of life can benefit from your ideas and insight now. You might be supporting others with helpful advice, logic, and knowledge, and thoroughly enjoying the process.
You are more emotionally invested in your career, responsibilities, or reputation today and tomorrow, dear Libra, and this can either boost or undermine your performance, depending on how secure you’re feeling today. Try not to let fear of failure interfere with setting goals. There is strong energy for teaming up with a friend or group and for networking, communicating and sharing ideas, and learning today. This is a better day for seeing the broader plans than it is for filling in the details. You have a vision today, and this can be exciting.
The Moon in your idealistic ninth house today and tomorrow inspires you to think in bigger terms, dream, and make plans. Fortunately, there is good energy for seeing the bigger picture now, and plans seem to fall into place in your mind. While your idealism is emphasized today, you can also be quite practical, and your optimism now motivates you even further. People in high places may be looking on you especially favorably today. You seem to have their support.
Your wisdom and intelligence are plainly seen today, dear Sagittarius, and you might have the chance to apply yourself to an important project. You are more confident about your talents and ideas, and you can be quite determined to put them into action. The only danger here is that you may take on a little too much, which sometimes happens when you’re feeling especially enthusiastic. You are even shrewder than usual today, and your powers of observation are strong.
With so much focus on the details of your life these days, dear Capricorn, today’s broader vision can be felt as a wonderful release. You are more able to see the bigger picture, particularly when it comes to the connection between mind and body, patterns of behavior, and recent life experiences. You can come to better conclusions now. Self-understanding improves as you pan out a little and focus less on the smaller problems and more on your life as a whole. Today and tomorrow, the Moon moves through your solar seventh house, making it a generally good time for socializing, recognizing your need for others, and in business, making deals and sales.
There has been quite a strong focus on getting your creative and playful needs met recently, dear Aquarius, and while this will continue for a while longer, your emotional focus today and tomorrow tends to be on more practical matters. The practical details of your life, the routines that keep you active and healthy, and your work or services you provide are in need of your attention. Emotionally, you’re invested in these things more than usual. Even so, this can also be a strong time for collaborating with others and making very effective plans. Partnering up can be very productive now.
Today and tomorrow, the Moon harmonizes with your own sign, dear Pisces, providing gentle support for your emotions and easier channels for expressing them. It’s a good day for creating, sharing, and enjoying yourself. There is also strong energy with you for work and health matters, as plans seem to be coming together at the very least in your mind. You are more able to see both the details and the bigger vision so that your judgment is more sound than on a regular day. Perhaps more importantly, you have more faith in your ideas, designs, and plans.
Your imagination is boundless and you are a true visionary. You possess an endearing youthful quality throughout life, and can be quite persuasive when you want to be. You are given to daydreaming and require frequent periods of rest and solitude in order to renew your spirit. You do thrive on sharing your ideas with others, but you need time alone to refresh. You can be quite ambitious, and at times critical and impatient when feeling restless or unfocused. Famous people born today: Erich Segal, Tupac Shakur, Ian Buchanan, Wally Joyner, Joyce Carol Oates.
The New Moon that occurs today, dear Aries, is aligned with your ruler, Mars, and influences your sector of communications and transportation. This can stimulate a strong desire to make yourself heard, to initiate a new project, to launch a business endeavor or a new line, or to start a course of study. The urge to branch out, to reach out to others, and to add more variety to your life is with you now, in spades. Communicating with others is in focus now. There can be new transportation opportunities in the coming weeks, or opportunities can arise through siblings, errand running, neighborhood activities, on the phone, or schooling. In some cases, there can be a breakdown or closing down of a mode of transportation or communication, which in turn prompts a need to do things differently with associated opportunities and new experiences. This New Moon also encourages you to put more of your personality into the work you do or into your communications.
A New Moon today encourages you to put more of your energy into building your life in creative ways, dear Taurus. It can serve to fuel your enthusiasm for making yourself more secure and comfortable. Taking charge of your personal finances can play a big role in this, but so can working on developing your natural talents or your current resources in order to make better use of all you have to give. The New Moon is aligned with assertive, bold Mars, making this a powerful time for taking the lead, going after what you want with more courage, and revealing a more confident “you” in your business affairs. Some of you could be launching new projects, acting on a money-making idea, or pursuing a raise or bonus. There may be opportunities in the coming weeks to become more productive or to improve the management of your finances.
There has been a strong focus on your personal plans in recent weeks, dear Gemini, but today’s New Moon acts can function on some level as a clean slate as well as a motivator to go forward with them. You are large and in charge right now, and you have more courage and energy to make needed changes in your life, particularly related to your health, image, personality, manner, and appearance. Before this lunation this morning, focus on letting go of excess mental or emotional baggage so that you can go forward with a lighter load and a happier disposition. If you feel that you could use a “restart”, this is it. News might arrive this week that points you in a new direction.
There has been much activity in your soul sector in the last few weeks, dear Cancer, and this has put the focus on the past, endings, rest, reflection, privacy, and solitude. The New Moon today stimulates the courage to handle these matters. With Mars involved, you can be more courageous and perhaps a little strict about putting something behind you, and this can be very positive and helpful. You may want to watch for speaking of something too soon today. Otherwise, this New Moon can push you on a new path of self-discovery and empowerment, which will help you as the Sun moves into your sign on the 21st, when the focus is on you, your needs, and your plans.
There has been a strong focus on your connections to friends and groups in recent weeks, dear Leo, and for many of you, long-term goals as well. This can be an important time in your life for collaboration. The New Moon today brings the take-charge energy you need to put a plan in motion, as well as inspiration for new ideas and goals to work towards. Mars with the New Moon points to leadership, courage, and action. Your sense of community is strong, and emotional satisfaction can come through your interactions with, or support of, friends and associates. The coming week is strong for new starts, publishing efforts, studies and courses, and making personal changes.
There has been a strong emphasis on your professional and reputation sector in the last few weeks, dear Virgo, and today’s New Moon in this same house of your solar chart brings you a shot of energy and verve for pursuing your goals or for putting projects into motion. You’re clearer about putting something behind you in order to move forward. You may be excited about a new launch. Some of you will be bringing new life to a business project, career, or life plan, and some will be starting fresh with a new one. You are especially motivated to move your work ahead. Job offers or recognition for what you do can come your way this week. Mars with this New Moon adds a dash of courage and is strong for solo efforts, but it can also be a little too impatient, and it’s wise not to push something forward too quickly. Remember that this is only the beginning!
The New Moon today brings a boost of energy, gumption, and confidence in areas of life that have been themes for the past few weeks, dear Libra. This week, you may be setting plans in motion that involve new experiences, adventures, educational pursuits, and that lead to a bigger understanding of your life’s purpose beyond career and relationship matters. This can also be a good time for publishing or speaking – sharing your experiences, reaching beyond the ordinary, and reaching out to more people. Routines are, of course, vital to your life, but the energy with you now encourages moving beyond these things once in a while. It’s time to feed your spirit and remind yourself why you’re here. You might be making educational or travel plans now. This particular New Moon is also about relationships for you, as people in your life or new friends can help inspire or support you in your efforts.
A New Moon occurs today in a sector of your chart that rules emotional intimacy, trust, sharing, bonding with others, and power dynamics, dear Scorpio. On a more mundane level, this house also rules debts to others as well as shared resources or non-income monies coming in. This is the eighth house, and while it rules closeness with a partner, it is not about the surface harmony that we saw in the seventh house. Instead, it’s about deeper bonding and intimacy. New Moons stir up desires and also bring a feeling of a fresh start, new beginning, and the need to take charge. This is your chance to relate with a partner in a more creative way, to work on trust issues, and to tackle power dynamics. It’s also a good cycle in which to pay off debts, handle taxes, ask for a loan, or seek out support of a more emotional nature. People are a little more willing to offer it. Today, all of this is fresh. Get prepared, but don’t push things too fast if you don’t feel ready.
With a New Moon occurring today, a door opens for change, dear Sagittarius, and with this lunation in your solar seventh house, it’s about your close relationships. This can be a new beginning in a current relationship or with someone new, or it can be about relating to others in healthier, more creative ways. The coming weeks are strong for appreciating the people close to you, partnering up to get things done faster or better, and opening up two-way conversations, negotiations, or consultations. This New Moon aligns with Mars, implying more courage and bravery, as well as a strong desire or need to make things happen, put problems behind you, and deal with problem areas directly. Use the positive traits that Mars stimulates, such as bravery, initiative, and straightforwardness, and avoid the more challenging traits, such as impatience and pushiness.
There has been a strong emphasis on habits, routine, health, skills, and work in your life in the past few weeks, dear Capricorn. Today’s New Moon brings in a chance to put new initiatives into action in these areas. This brings a wonderful opportunity for new project and program launches that help you to improve your wellbeing in vital ways. It’s time to take better care of yourself. Improving daily routines plays a big role in this. You could be loving what you do now, and bringing new, more creative, happier energy to your work. The coming weeks are strong for beginning a new fitness or nutrition program. There can be new tasks or priorities that invigorate you. Family may be involved in this with Mars, the ruler of your solar sector of home and family, aligned with the New Moon. Some of you may be setting up a home office or gym.
A New Moon occurs today, dear Aquarius, and it’s about turning over a new leaf. This is about reconnecting with your inner child in many ways, as you are encouraged to enjoy the many wonders of life through “play” – hobbies, games, creative pursuits, and entertainment are part of this. It’s also about expressing yourself more openly and freely, and about confidently pursuing your heart’s desire. This can be a rather romantic New Moon for some. It can be about an attitude change for others. New beginnings are favored in the coming weeks, particularly along the lines of new hobbies, finding different avenues for creative expression and entertainment, a new romance or a reinvigoration of an existing one, or discovering new ways to enjoy leisure time. A simple but powerful goal now could involve listening to your heart more often, or aiming to make the most out of any time off. With Mars heavily involved with this New Moon, you can draw upon more courage to express yourself or to connect with others in the coming weeks.
There has been a stronger emphasis on your personal life in the past few weeks, dear Pisces, and the New Moon today brings even more power and energy to home and family matters. Personal concerns rather than worldly ones are in focus now, and the desire to begin anew, start fresh, or turn over a new leaf is with you. This sector of your chart is also about your support system, those things that make you feel secure and needed, and plans that aim to provide nurturance for many years to come. For some of you, there can be a move or renovations, and for others, significant family gatherings or activities. You may be investing in a home or things for your living space, reorganizing, or putting more effort into connecting in healthier, happier ways with the people you love.

A new lighter energy is coming in this week through Solstice. Take advantage of this by planting some new seeds in tandem with Tuesday’s new moon. Contemplate specific changes you want to see manifest over the coming weeks. Energies now support new approaches, new ideas, and unheard of breakthroughs. You must be present, mindful and heart-connected to access and act for optimal results.
New moons typically are like a doorway to new starts. This particular one is even more powerful, its energy reverberating for a couple of weeks.
Solstice and Post Wesak
Keep this at the top of your mind throughout this week leading up to Solstice and Post Wesak celebrations with the Masters who set the template for enlightenment on Earth. The beneficial energies of those beings is quite potent and palpable in these moments. Consciously tune into them and invite these blessings into your life.
Invite miracles, too!
Watchwords for the week are mindfulness and heart centeredness. If you become aware of anger, fear, or other negative emotional responses it is vital that you work through them and shift your focus to love. There will be challenging energies, as we typically have because of these tumultuous times. Do what you can, however, to avoid letting negativity poison your thoughts, actions, and new seed planting.
No anger or disappointment – regardless of reason – is worth carrying into the light-filled pursuits you want to create. None of these things will matter in the long term.
From that big-picture perspective, you are a divine changemaker who is eternal and a key player in shifting the scales from dark to light.
You are that light that you want to see prevail. Keep that mantra in your mind these next two weeks.
Set the Example for Others
Right now, so many around you are challenged and perhaps confused. Many may be unknowingly influenced by their fearful unconscious, unable to perceive things you understand. Be mindful of this when you encounter loved ones and even strangers. No one is exempt from the turmoil of our world being transformed out of the dark ages.
Remember that we are all connected – not only energetically and physically living together on this small planet – but we share common human stories through our lineages, past lives, and the mass consciousness.
Your pain is everyone’s pain. The pain of others is your pain. Similarly, your joy is everyone’s joy and you are influenced by the joy of others. Why not choose joy as your focus? It’s contagious and healing for everyone including you!
As you set the example for others – shifting into joy and doing your best to act from that place – you become an even more powerful force for turning our world right-side up again, into love.
Solstice 2015 Activation
with Archangel Michael and the Sacred Circle Animal Spirits
You are most lovingly invited to join us on Sunday the 21st of June for a Global Meditation and Activation Event. You can join with us at any time during the day, as this will be a progressive wave of energy around the Planet. It is also World Water Healing Day and World Yoga Day, so there will be lots of great energy out there! I will be working with a group of friends at an Ancient Stone Circle in Mapumalange, South Africa that is known by the locals as “The Birthplace of the Sun”, and “The Stones from the Stars”. If anyone is in the area, you are welcome to join us, otherwise please join in the Meditation Wave.
The text for the Meditation/Activation is given below.
Part One : Activating the Diamond Heart
Begin by focussing into your Heart Center and breathing deeply. Connect with the Flame of Divine Diamond Light that lives in your Heart. As you breathe, expand that Diamond White Light into your Physical Body and your Light Body.
Now, feel the presence of Archangel Michael and his Angels of Light who are here to guide this work. Beloved Souls, as you breathe deeply again, move that White Light down your body, through your Base Chakra and feet, and down into the Earth, through the Earth Star Chakra and into the Earth Heart Center. Here you will find yourself in a beautiful Crystal Cave filled with Rainbow Light. You become aware of pulsations of light, as the Earth heart is breathing and pulsating in harmony with the pulsations of the Divine Cosmic Heart. As you breathe deeply again, allow your own heart to align with this heartbeat. Feel the deep Love and Compassion at the Core of the Earth and bring that back into your own loving and beautiful Diamond Heart. Just breathe deeply, and hold that energy for a while.
Now, again breathing deeply, allow that Diamond Light energy to rise up through your Crown Chakra and Soul Star Chakra, through the Galactic center to the Great Cosmic Heart. There you feel the pulsations of Divine Love and Compassion as you align with the Heart of God. Feel every particle of your Being becoming Diamond Light and aligning with the pulsations of the Divine Heart. Now, as you breathe deeply, allow this energy to return to your Heart and hold it there as you align Heaven and Earth in the frequencies, patterns and pulsations of the Divine Light.
Now, Beloved Ones, breathing deeply again, bring in the Diamond Divine Feminine energy. Feel the flow of Love, Passion, Strength, Wisdom and Compassion. Let this energy activate your Body and Light Body as you breathe deeply in the flow. Now bring in the Diamond Divine Masculine with its Clarity, Power, Integrity, Creativity and Loving Responsibility, and allow these energies to create a grid for the Flow of the Divine Feminine. Breathe deeply.
Now, Beloveds, as these energies center in your Heart, you will feel an explosion of Diamond White Fire in every cell as you activate the Diamond Heart energies.
Now rest, breathe deeply, and relax. The Diamond Heart Activation is complete!
Part Two: Sacred Circle for Calling the Animals into the Diamond Vortex
Using the Diamond Light Vortex that you have created in the Activation, you can now create a Sacred Circle that will be a conduit for Divine Love and Blessings for the Earth. The Circle is oriented to the North. If you are in the Southern Hemisphere you may wish to orient the circle to the South, that is passing from East to North to West to South.
See youself standing at the center of the Circle, whether literally or in vision, and face the EAST, the place of the Air and Sky and the Rising Sun and New Beginnings. Breate deeply and call in the Bird Tribes:
“Oh beautiful Spirits of the AIR, the Bird tribe of Earth, we call you now to Earth. We call the Great Eagles and the Hawks, and the messengers of Spirit, and we call all the winged creatures of the Air. We love you and we cherish you. We appreciate your Being and your gifts to the Earth. We ask you to stay with us and build the New Earth together with us. We express Diamond Gratitude for your presence and your gifts!”
Now face the SOUTH, the place of the WATERS, the place of flow, abundance and blessings. Breathe deeply and call all the beings who inhabit the Oceans and the Lakes and the Rivers of the Earth:
“Oh Spirits of the Waters, the Dolphins and Whales, the Seals and the Fishes and all the beings who swim in the waters, we call to you with love! We love you and we cherish you. We appreciate your Being and your gifts to the Earth. We ask you to stay here with us and manifest the New Earth together with us. We express Diamond Gratitude for your presence and your gifts.”
Now, breathe deeply and face the WEST, the place of FIRE and passion and call to all the land animals that walk and run on our Earth with the passion and fire of life in their hearts and bodies. “Oh Spirirts of the Animal World, The four legged ones whose presence brings us comfort and support, from the wild wolves and wild cats to those with whom we share the fires of our homes and hearths, we call out to you. Also to all the wild animals of the plains and mountains, we offer you our deep respect and love for what you are and that we can share our Earth with you. We love you and we cherish you. We appreciate your Being and your gifts to the Earth. We ask you to stay here with us and manifest the New Earth together with us. We express Diamond Gratitude for your presence and your gifts.”
Now, finally, breathe deeply again and turn to the NORTH, the place of EARTH and deep Wisdom and Love. Here we call forth the Spirit Animals and the Animals Guides, the White Lions, the White Whales, the White Buffalo, the Unicorns, the Dragons and all the Magical and Wise Beings who guide us.
“Oh wise ones, we call you to come to us and to be with us and work with us once again. Many have forgotten who you are and that you are gifts from the Stars, but we remember you and we honor you. We honor your wisdom and power and your guidance on the wheel of life. We honor the Earth as our home and we honor Spirit and all the Beings of Light, the Angels and those of the Spirit Animal realms who guide us home to the Light. We love you and we cherish you. We appreciate your Being and your gifts to the Earth. We ask you to stay here with us and manifest the New Earth together with us. We express Diamond Gratitude for your presence and your gifts.”
Return your attention now to your own Heart Space, and extend your Diamond Gratitude upwards to the Heart of God and downwards to the Heart of the Earth. Allow yourself and your circle to be a conduit or a channel for the flow of Divine Diamond Light and Blessings from the Heart of God to the Heart of the Earth. Feel yourself joining togethr with many other Sacred Circles and Sacred Diamond Hearts in a Circle of Loving Blessing and Diamond Gratitude to the Earth and All That Is!
And so it is Done. We Thank You! Breathe deeply and hold the energy for as long as you wish. Then thank all the Spirit Beings who have worked with you and release the Circle.
I will be making a Sound File to go with this in case you would like to do the Meditation and Activation in this way.
The Moon today is in a New Moon phase. During this phase the Moon is to close to the sun in the sky to be visible. The moon rises and sets with the sun and is not present in the night sky. Because of this the night sky is darker and an excellent time to view other celestial objects. Like the Full Moon, a New Moon happens at a very specific time when the sun and moon have the same ecliptic longitude and it can be measured down to the second it occurs.
Phase Details for – Tuesday, June 16, 2015
Phase: New Moon
Moon Age: 29.45 days
Moon Angle: 0.52
Moon Distance: 383,859.87 km
Sun Angle: 0.52
Sun Distance: 151,978,992.70 km
For this meditation, use rhythmic music. Coldplay’s song “Clocks” is ideal for this purpose. You will also need a clock.
Before you go to sleep, turn on the music and sit with your eyes open. Look at the face of the clock. Say what you would like to dream about. Be specific. Now slowly focus on the twelve o’clock position for about fifteen seconds. Shift your awareness clockwise from the twelve o’clock position to the three o’clock position for fifteen seconds, then to the six o’clock position for fifteen seconds. All the while you are moving your awareness around the face of the clock, keep thinking about what you want to dream about. Move your eyes clockwise to the nine o’clock position for fifteen seconds, and back up to the twelve o’clock position for fifteen seconds.
Now, close your eyes, and do the same thing in your mind’s eye, again all the while thinking about what you want to dream about. Imagine a clock, and move your attention from twelve o’clock to three o’clock to six o’clock to nine o’clock, back up to twelve o’clock. Open your eyes, and look at the twelve o’clock position for a few seconds again. Now sweep your awareness clockwise from the twelve o’clock position to the three o’clock position for a few seconds, then to the six o’clock position for a few seconds. Move your eyes clockwise to the nine o’clock position for a few seconds, and back up to the twelve o’clock position for a few seconds. Close your eyes, and imagine the clock face and repeat the process again and again until you drift to sleep.
Wiccan Spell A Night: Spells, Charms, And Potions For The Whole Year
Some esotericists advise that we should saturate our lives with the desire for what we want, that we should visualize it, believe it, expect it, tell ourselves it is on its way for every waking moment it occurs to us. Some advise the opposite – do the spell and forget it. This isn’t the same as letting go of the spell energy, which you must do. It is about general attitude. Personally I am mainly in favour of the ‘letting go’ approach. Do the spell and rest in happy expectation, but get on with life. It isn’t that either approach is ‘wrong’ but that the holding of an idea in your mind usually leads to obsession and frustration because it is hard to maintain a positive attitude. If you start to have doubts it will not do your purpose any good. Of course, if you want something very much it is also hard not to think about it! The best approach is to say, each time the thought comes into your head ‘Yes, I want that. It is coming’ and consciously blow it into the ether, while you get on with what is possible. My advice is to put all you have into the spells you do and meanwhile enjoy other things.
Occasionally there are things we want that are not ‘meant to be’. This isn’t intended as an easy way out, or cold comfort to anyone who doesn’t achieve something they very much wanted, but it is a hint to ‘go with the flow’. As you become used to doing spells, you will find that the ‘tuning in and turning on’ necessary for magical workings puts you in touch with universal reality, and you get a feeling for what you should work for and what is best left. If you get the strong feeling that something is not intended, leave it alone or you could make matters worse. Alternatively, doing a spell may make you feel more sure.

In some of the more remote areas of Mexico, fragments of this ancient Peruvian festival can be found. To the ancients, the sun represented the supreme cosmic power and an all-seeing seeing deity. When it was coupled with the rain, it gave life to the earth. The Sun Festival was a celebration of power and beauty when the Sky Father and Earth Mother were conjoined in sacred marriage. Great bonfires, ecstatic dancing, and offerings ings were made to the Gods. Today, these festivals are less elaborate and usually end up being family picnics. However, one custom still remains: to burn one’s old clothing to banish sickness and bad luck.
Tuesday is a Mars day, and just like the god of war, this is the time to tap into magicks to call for strength and courage. This day of the week is for rebels and warriors.
