Full Moon Wish Spell
Take a couple of pennies and go outside where you can clearly see the Full Moon. Hold the pennies in your hand and ask out loud that your wish be granted. Visualize what your goal is…and state it out loud. Throw the pennies up into the air towards the Moon. Then say out loud that you offer the pennies to the Moon and give thanks.

Full Moon Magic – Lemon Balm for Love
Lemon balm grows like a wild thing in my garden, so much so that I have had to contain it in pots! It is a plant that is ruled by the Moon.
For this spell soak a few lemon balm leaves in apple juice (also a fruit of love), leave the mixture in a place where it can capture the light of the Full Moon then share the drink with your partner using the same cup, this should ensure a strong and true love.

The Perfect Spell for the Full Moon on Wednesday – Insight and Gaining New Perspective Spell

This spell work with the runes as one of its props. If you have a set of runes, this is definitely the time to break them out. If not, no worries. The runes are a nice link back to the god Odin, but in a pinch you could also draw a few rune sigils on a piece of paper and set that on your work area. Improvise and be creative. What do you think you could also add to this full moon spell?
• 1 purple candle (purple for spirituality and to align with the energies of Mercury)
• A coordinating candle holder
• A nail or pin to engrave the candle with Wednesday’s planetary symbol of Mercury
• A black feather or a picture of a raven (this bird was sacred to Odin, and the raven represents mystery and magick)
• The Hanged Man tarot card
• Your tarot deck, set off to the side
• Runes scattered across the work surface or a drawing of a few runes
• A lighter or matches
• A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell
Carefully engrave the Mercury symbol on the candle. Place the candle in its holder and then arrange the rest of the spell components to your liking. You may certainly embellish this spell by adding a statue or image of Odin, if you choose. This full moon spell is designed to help you look at things from a new perspective and to receive some inspiration, so put on your thinking cap and be imaginative. Take a few moments to ground and center yourself. Then light the purple candle and speak the following verse:
Odin, hear my call on this full moon night
Grant me wisdom and improve my insight
May I gain a new perspective at this time
Bless me with peace and inspiration divine
I now release that which no longer serves
This change begins with the sounds of my words.
If you choose, this would be an excellent time to meditate and see what Odin has to tell you. Lay your hands on the card, feather, and runes. Take a deep breath and relax. Now let your mind open and see what you learn.
When you are finished, close the spell with these words:
By the power of Wednesday’s witchery
This spell is sealed;
I set the magick free!
Allow the candle to burn out in a safe place. Clean up your other spell supplies. Save the feather or raven picture for future magick. Return the card to the tarot deck, and gather up all your runes. If you like, now is the perfect time to do a simple reading with your runes or your tarot cards. Ask for clarity and for insight, then draw three cards or stones and see what Odin has to say.

Shuffling the Cards, Your Past, Present & Future Reading for July 1st

Shuffling the Cards, Your Past, Present & Future Reading for Today


Past Influence whose impact on your life is waning.

The Unicorn

The Unicorn indicates uniqueness and reminds us of the ability for magic we possess. Although gentle, the unicorn nonetheless is able to defend itself, not only through horn-to-horn face-off but also through swift flight or even by disappearing into a mystical mist. The unicorn also represents purity, strength, and for a mentor or a nurturing family member. When the Unicorn appears, extraordinary events are possible in the near future.


Present Influence whose impact on your life is very strong.

The Open Door

The Open Door signifies the presence of new opportunities. However, to reap the benefits of these prospects you will have to move beyond where you are now–forsake the comforts and safety of your current life and head out in new directions. Moves like those symbolized by The Open Door require courage, because fresh opportunities signify the chance of gain, but do not guarantee they will be realized. Regardless of the benefits that may be reaped, with the transitions like those required to explore these new found opportunities, something is always lost. Before launching on a voyage down new paths it is a good idea to objectively assess your current state of being and decide whether what you have now is worth jeopardizing.


Future influence whose impact on your life is growing and will be very strong in the future.

The Owl

The powerful Owl easily makes its way through the darkest night on muted wings. Often it is only their haunting call echoing across the land that lets us know The Owl is near. Because of its amazing night vision, many cultures have attributed wisdom and the ability to uncover even the deepest secrets to the enigmatic, noble Owl. The Owl’s nocturnal prowess has lead many to see them as a messenger between the material and spirit worlds. Cultures as distinct as the African Zulus and ancient Celtics have ascribed magical powers to The Owl made them a revered companion to shaman and wizards.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for July 1 is The Ancestors

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today


Ancestors represents the ongoing influence and remarkable contributions those who came before us have made to our state of being. Ancestors also reminds us that sometimes old wisdom is the best wisdom–especially when events are moving in ways we do not understand. Ancestors can bring comfort to a shaken spirit. It is a card of warmth in the sense that it reminds us that the spirit of past generations remains with us and can be called upon for guidance at any time.

As a daily card, Ancestors suggests that you may be well served to by exploring your family tree to find solutions to current dilemmas. When searching for solutions to conflicts in your life, you might do well by asking yourself what a grandparent or great grandparent would do in your current situation.

Your Daily Witches Rune for July 1 is The Star


Today’s Witches Rune

The Star

Meaning: In many cultures, the Star is a symbol of hope, dreams and destiny, and in the Witches Runes this symbol has a similar connotation. When the Star rune appears, it’s green light for you to go after what you want.

Note that the Star does not say you’ll get everything you want without any work. No. This symbol is a not about easy success, but about having faith in what you are doing – and doing it. In fact, the goals suggested by the Star are usually the highest and most significant ones – the ones that are hardest to get. It does not matter what the dream is, but its significance in your life. This symbol also represents ideals, and they can be both individual and collective ones.

In a more down-to-earth way, the Star is related to revolutions, changes, risks, speculation and all things motivated by faith and ideals. It can represent a sudden spark on inspiration, a windfall, a sudden rise to fame or a promotion. Though the sudden changes brought by the Star are usually positive, they are also fast: you can get back to point zero as quickly as you rose. So don’t be afraid to jump forward when the opportunity arises.

The Star urges you to take the risk, to have hope and to trust. After the staleness of Crossroads, the Universe finally begins to move again. If you believe in Higher Powers, this symbol shows that They are guiding you in this moment. The Star is a very positive rune, but in a more negative context it can represent revolution for revolution’s sake and the constant idealization of people and situations. It can also stand for excessive individualism when going after a dream.

In relationship readings, this rune represents hope and an idealistic kind of love. Usually the people involved in the relationship have high expectations about the other. They easily put their partner on a pedestal, only to feel frustrated when reality strikes. The Star can also represent unrequited love, or the love for someone who is unattainable. On the other hand, this rune tells you to not give up love entirely – keep looking, because someone is coming.

Your Rune for July 1 is Raidho


bw-raidhoYour Rune For Today

Raidho may mark the coming of a physical or spiritual journey. Whichever the case, changes in your life are soon to come. Spiritual or material goals may be attained.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Raidho


raiðo : journey

Phonetic equivalent: r

DIVINATORY MEANINGS: journey, pilgrimage, change, destiny, quest, progress, life lessons

MAGICAL USES: protection for travellers, to ease or bring about change, to reconnect

ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: the Norns, Sigurd’s journey

ANALYSIS: Raiðo represents the path of a person’s life and how it intersects and interacts with other paths. In Norse mythology, these paths are seen as threads of fate, and are regulated by the Norns. The Norns are three sisters who live near the first root of Yggdrasil, which they tend with the water from the well of Wyrd. They also spin the fates of Gods and men, which is important when understanding the mechanism of runic divination and magic.

The complex network of relationships formed by these threads of fate can be thought of as a web. Every chance encounter forms another connection in the web, and by tugging on one thread you affect everything else in the system. Most people do this completely unconsciously, but by becoming aware of the pattern of the threads surrounding you, it becomes possible to recognize and follow up on the kind of catalytic events that seemed to happen to us randomly back at fehu. In this way, we can find our way more easily along the path of our own journey, thus deriving the greatest benefit from its lessons. Otherwise we tend to get distracted and end up on detours and dead ends.

Raiðo reminds us that, although it may seem that we have accomplished our goals at ansuz, life and change continue and we must always go on. We will eventually end up where we began, but on a higher level and with a better perspective. The journey never really ends.

Get a Jump on Tomorrow…..

Your Horoscopes for Thursday, July 2nd



Aries Horoscope

You can be especially sharp in a debate today, dear Aries, and winning an argument, if you are so inclined, is likely now. You are more fluent than usual when it comes to expressing your ideas, and this can take the form of writing and speaking, so be sure to either surround yourself with people or work on emails and other communications that need your attention. Not only you, but also people you are communicating with now, tend to be more open-minded and willing to hear progressive ideas. This can also be a good time to renew or update a work in progress or personal hobby/interest.



This is a good day for ease and flow when it comes to communicating, dear Taurus. You are less attached to what you’re expressing, and this helps you to talk about things, even difficult matters, with facility, making this a good time to release some stress or share a problem with someone. You might delight in a sudden or private attraction now. There could be new insight into a previously complicated issue. The Moon is in your adventure sector all day, encouraging broad, positive thinking.



This can be a fine time for getting your point across, dear Gemini, as well as for networking activities or socializing. You can be especially witty or insightful, and others appreciate you for your ideas and gestures. You might see a friend in an entirely different light, which can be exciting. This can be a time for unusual or unexpected experiences with current and past friends. There can also be a good time for meetings, group activities, and teamwork.



Your thinking is more creative than usual today, dear Cancer. Thoughts of the past or of private, complicated matters, tend to dominate. Even so, you’re putting a new spin on old matters, or seeing old problems in a new light. You could be drawing upon paste experience to advance a project or to improve business affairs. There can be a sudden impulse to contact someone, or you can be the recipient of surprising news or contact. Be sure to break the routine even just a little in order to make the most of the day.



The day is likely to be pleasantly lively for you, dear Leo. It’s a good time for learning new skills, particularly of a technical or scientific nature, but also for what seem to be simple conversations that can lead to something more helpful. New ideas and alternative methods can be inspiring now. It’s a good time to make an announcement, if you need to, particularly about matters that require an open mind. There can also be deeper thinking on health or work matters.


Virgo Symbol/Glyph

Today is strong for self-expression and pleasant surprises, dear Virgo. Support seems to be there when you need it most, and while you sometimes feel you need to prepare for the worst, it can be a nice surprise that you didn’t really need to do so. Others come through in a pinch, and this can lift your spirits. You are inclined to surprise others today as well, in a pleasant way, and you feel exceptionally open and generous. There is very good energy for updating or renewing a project, particularly related to career or business, and a great love of research.


Libra Glyph-Symbol

Conversations can be very fruitful and even inspiring today, dear Libra. Sharing a similar view point, or simply an entirely new one, can help strengthen a bond. You are more expressive than usual, and certainly in the mood to learn or teach. There can be good news today, or you might hear something that awakens your inner spirit. You thoroughly enjoy the theme of cooperation and progressiveness around you today. Even so, there is a strong and important need to replenish yourself through familiar activities that make you feel secure and safe today.


Scorpio Symbol Glyph

This is likely to be a rather upbeat, fast-paced day, dear Scorpio. Your mind certainly deserves a break from the daily drudge, and this promises to be a day that can involve some intellectual adventure. New insights into old problems can occur now. You can have powerful intuition regarding work methods, as well as health matters. An unusual meeting or friendship can occur today, particularly through daily routines, work, or the pursuit of health goals.


Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

People may be attracted to your progressive thinking today, dear Sagittarius, or you may be attracting others who are expressing interesting or inventive ideas. Romantic excitement is very possible today. Plans seem to change at the very last minute, allowing for experiences that are more spontaneous, freeform, and inspirational. There is good energy for conversations revolving around children, creative projects, and romance, and all conversations can be at the very least interesting and quite possibly very helpful. There can be intriguing news today.


Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

This can be a great day for solving problems, dear Capricorn, but also for communicating ideas, particularly work- or health-related ones. You are more likely to voice concerns, ask for help, or express your ideas. You are entertaining alternatives, and feeling intellectually stimulated. The Moon is in your sign all day (until tomorrow morning), encouraging you to feel and enjoy your emotions and tend to your emotional needs and wants. You could be desiring an overhaul of sorts.



You can take special pleasure in expressing your more unorthodox ideas, and fortunately, others are listening today, dear Aquarius. It’s a very strong day for expressing your ideas, telling stories, and letting someone special know how you feel. Your “audience” is likely to be especially receptive. Take a break from your usual routine now. Sharing ideas and opinions can strengthen a relationship today. Even so, you are likely to need some private time today, and you should honor this need, as emotional replenishment and renewal is important now.



You can make interesting discoveries today, dear Pisces, particularly about home or domestic matters. You might come up with fresh solutions to old problems, or seek out alternative methods to the usual way of doing things, and can be quite satisfied as a result. Being flexible and open-minded is your best bet now, as spontaneity, particularly on a mental level, tends to be rewarded today. A partner might bring a pleasant surprise to your day.
