Your Personal Daily Tarot Card for Nov. 4th is The Moon

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Moon


The Moon represents those forces which remain largely hidden to us. The light of the moon provides some illumination down a path into the unknown, but not enough to brighten the landscape like The Sun, or cut through the dark shadows from which the unexpected may leap. However, The Moon is not without gifts we can use. She spurs our imagination and creativity. She can be a portal to knowledge and experience beyond the realm of our everyday lives. But Her offerings are not available to the feint of heart. To receive what The Moon offers one must have the courage to follow uncharted paths and the intelligence to find truths hidden in a bewildering setting rife with illusion. For those who can make this journey the reward may be finding the key to making their dreams come true.

Your Horoscopes for Thursday, November 5th

General Horoscope

Although we know what is correct in our hearts, circumstances make it difficult to communicate our position today. The detail-oriented Virgo Moon urges us to separate the bad data from the good. However, our minds create their own distractions as an eye-opening aspect between expansive Jupiter and fast-acting Uranus brings intellectual breakthroughs. Nevertheless, our individual needs might be shunted aside for the collective good of the community.

Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19

No matter what you hope to do today, work-related tasks demand your undivided attention until the job is complete. This ambitious commitment may sound like bad news, but doing your chores could turn out to be a pleasant experience if you don’t put up a fight. Keep your eye on the final goal, regardless of whatever delightful distractions pop up. Just think of it as an endurance test from the universe. If you stay focused on the finish line, you’ll cross it with flying colors. Rewards are sweeter when you sweat for them.

Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20

Whatever concerns surface today may not be as daunting as they seem at first. Ultimately, the current pressure is not great enough to prompt a significant life change, but you still might have to jump through a few hoops to move things along. Thankfully, once you get the ball rolling, progress becomes easier as the day wears on. Surprisingly, you could even have time for a playful diversion. Keep your productivity on target by avoiding extreme reactions. Balancing your energy maximizes your potential.

Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20

Even if your thoughts are running amok now, this is a perfect chance to set clear priorities and consciously focus on what’s most important. Your emotions may be entangled with those of close family members, but something unexpected could pull you away from your plans at home today. Although responsibilities are calling from all directions, you can still reconnect with the ones you love later on in the evening. There’s nothing wrong with admitting that home is where your heart is happiest.

Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22

There is so much going on at work that it is nearly impossible to reestablish balance to your daily routine. Fortunately, you can feel a subtle but significant shift in the energy today. Even if you don’t yet fully understand where the current trajectory is heading, at least recognize that you can’t tie yourself to the status quo any longer. Don’t be too calculating as you plan your future or you’ll end up outsmarting yourself. Follow the flow; your life is changing and you need to change with it.

Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22

You might be worrying about your long-term financial condition for not-so-obvious reasons. Although your mind is on your money today, chances are that your current anxiety is a reflection of a deeper concern you are harboring about your life goals. Thankfully, a little self-examination will set the record straight. What do you consider valuable? Where do you see yourself in five years? What’s on your bucket list? The more you envision the future now, the more you realize how much work there is to do in the present moment.

Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22

Relationships are the source of confusion today if you impulsively act on your feelings. You might be suddenly confronted with the fact that everyone doesn’t necessarily share the same level of interest as you. Don’t push for resolution to prove a point; solutions may remain elusive for a while longer. Take as much time as you need to listen to the whispers of your heart and decipher the clues in your dreams. Don’t grow complacent; be ready to run with your answer when you find it.

Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22

Turning your brilliant ideas into action is tricky now, but it’s not because anyone wants to see you fail. Instead, it’s your own indecisiveness that stymies your progress. Although you may have ongoing issues about making timely decisions, this is one choice you’re actually better off postponing today because you don’t have the objective perspective you need. Give it a few days and then make up your mind. It might look like procrastination to the rest of the world, but you know it’s all about strategic timing.

Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21

Fight the impulse to be overly vague when you ask for what you need today. Even if the stars don’t grant your every wish, you can still end up closer to getting what you want. Exploring the possibility that you’re missing something crucial to the big picture inspires you to dig deeper. Look within and you can transform uncertainty into specificity but you won’t find your answers immediately. In the meantime, your willingness to be truly authentic with those you love is appreciated more than you know.

Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21

Your naturally cheerful disposition normally opens doors for you, but your exuberance could work against you today. It’s unrealistic to expect others to take you seriously when you’re busy breaking out the party favors and cracking jokes. It’s wonderful to play the master of ceremonies whenever possible, but now you can’t leave the practical matters behind until they are fully addressed. Surprise everyone with your willingness to work hard, and then dazzle them with your brilliance.

Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19

Your attention to detail is admirable today, but you could grow so obsessed with gathering more facts that you lose track of your original goal. You might believe that possessing the right piece of information now can empower you to overcome nearly any obstacle. However, you may be sorely disappointed if you become so fascinated with the pixels that you no longer see the big picture. Change your perspective by taking a few steps back and then boldly recreate your vision of the future from your new vantage point.

Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18

Although everything might seem a little off center today, you remain hopeful that the tension will dissipate on its own. There’s not quite enough conflict for you to initiate any major changes in your life now. But there is just the right amount of free-floating anxiety to encourage you to assume a self-protective posture. Don’t let down your guard or you could court disaster. Thankfully, your clever ability of staying one step ahead of everyone else will surely pay off in the days ahead.

Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20

Struggling with the fine distinctions between fact and fiction takes up most of your energy today. Even with your natural proclivity toward fantasy, you can usually tell what’s real when push comes to shove. However, it’s nearly impossible to know what to trust now. Dream big while delaying major decisions for a few more days. Although your judgment may be temporarily clouded, your imagination is more vivid than ever. Keep dipping into the deep waters since that’s where the buried treasure is hidden.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, November 4th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

While the day is certainly good for entertaining, creative, and expressive activities with the Moon in playful Leo until tonight, dear Aries, there is also good energy for applying yourself to researching an idea or project. You can apply rationality and practical thought to normally emotional or sensitive matters. This can be a day in which people who you were previously trying to get in touch with are now available. Tonight, you’ll feel like doing catch-up work if you’ve been putting off priorities. Even so, there can be some tendency to rebel against any extra work you’ve recently taken on as you consider that you may need a little more space for spontaneous explorations.

Taurus

Taurus

This week, an aspect between Jupiter in your recreation sector and Uranus in your privacy sector can call up some questions about freedom and enjoyment, dear Taurus, particularly if you’ve been overzealous in the pursuit of pleasure. While this is an important time for you to explore and express your creativity and to allow your inner child the chance to come out and play, if you overdo this to the point that other life departments begin to suffer, you’ll need to wrestle with guilt or other feelings of discomfort. For some, issues from the past can interfere with a present relationship. The solution is to simplify your life and divide your attention more evenly. Today, there is strong energy for constructive conversation. If you have a problem to handle, seek out a trusted partner or friend. This is also a good time to show a friend or partner your more reliable side.

Gemini

Gemini

This is a strong day for applying yourself to work or research, dear Gemini, and for a certain flair with communications. You’re finding answers that previously eluded you, showing your commitment to the work you do or services you provide, and possibly tying up loose ends on an important project. Having a firm grip on your priorities helps you to focus on what’s most essential, but you’re also tuned in to fancy details and design elements as well. This week, however, there can be awareness of areas of excess in your life, particularly related to attention spent to personal and domestic matters. If you’re juggling too much, you might start to feel a call for more spontaneous activities or need for friends.

Cancer

Cancer

There can be continued focus on practical affairs and matters of comfort and security today, dear Cancer. However, it’s also a strong day for expressing yourself creatively, learning something new, and studying or editing. You might even discover opportunities to turn a personal hobby or plan into something that makes money for you or opens doors to other professional opportunities. Alternatively, this can be about putting a natural talent to better use. This week, questions of freedom can be on our minds, however, with Jupiter and Uranus connecting in a somewhat challenging way. For you, if you’ve taken on too many personal projects or interests, you could find that this impacts your attention to responsibilities or professional goals. Look for ways to divide your attention in a more balanced way, even if this means cutting back on certain activities. Otherwise, the activities that you enjoy most can eventually feel burdensome.

Leo

Leo

The Moon continues to transit your sign until tonight, dear Leo, and today, forms few connections with the planets. This can lead to a sense that you can make what you want of the day, although you could feel especially self-focused. There is good energy today for study and research, so if you need to prepare for a presentation or interview, there is strong support for this now. This week, Jupiter and Uranus form a quincunx aspect, and this can present a dilemma when it comes to funding your adventures, travels, or education for some. For others, if you’ve taken on too many business projects or commitments, as much as you’re enjoying them, you could feel the need to free up some time for new or broader experiences and spontaneous activities. You’ll figure out a solution to this as you go along, but do consider ways to make room for both practical application and experimentation.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

This is a potentially excellent day for collaborating with someone to solve a problem or move a project to a new level, dear Virgo. It can also be strong for showing your appreciation for someone’s loyalty and help, which can deepen a bond. You tend to often go it alone these days, and it’s a strong exercise in confidence that you need and that is very good for you, but there are days such as these that your connection to others figures strongly and warmly. This week, a Jupiter-Uranus quincunx can serve as a checkpoint if you’ve recently taken on too much. You may need to simplify before excess in one area of life begins detrimentally affecting other life “departments”. Freedom is especially important to you these days, so make the space for spontaneity.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

There can be special attention to developing your skills or increasing your knowledge today, dear Libra, and much potential for success. The focus now tends to be on practical skills and know-how. On another level, a Jupiter-Uranus quincunx coming exact this week serves as an important reminder that even with the things we love and enjoy, if we go overboard, we can end up restricting ourselves in other areas of life. Look for ways to better balance your life. For some of you, your increased need for solitude, time alone, or time to think, can be affecting a relationship. While a quincunx aspect often gives us a feeling that we have to make a choice between one thing or the other, there is in fact a way to find a compromise, even if the route to this is not yet obvious.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

People are lining up for your ideas – you seem to have an especially strong sense of current and future trends these days, dear Scorpio, and practical insight as well. There is special style in how you are presenting your ideas and communicating your message, as well as a real willingness to back things up with hard work. If you’ve been taking on too many projects or spending a little too much time networking and socializing recently, however, you could begin to feel a little restless now. With Jupiter and Uranus forming a quincunx, you might discover that too much of even a good, enjoyable thing can eventually feel burdensome or wasteful. Make some time for yourself and for life’s unexpected moments, and be sure that work and health matters get their due attention. This way, you’ll be in a better position to grab opportunities when they arise.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

Yesterday, your ruler, Jupiter, opposed Chiron, and now Jupiter moves towards an awkward aspect with Uranus. This serves as another checkpoint when it comes to expanding your goals, reach, or projects. Consider your need to “play” freely from time to time – to act on impulses, to do something fun or creative spontaneously. If you are filling up your life too full of projects, even if they are thoroughly exciting, you’ll end up feeling too burdened or overwhelmed. That’s what this Jupiter-Uranus energy is about. It’s a reminder that we can’t overload our lives and handle sudden changes of plans or life’s unexpected twists easily. Keep some time in your life free. There is good energy tonight for solving an emotional or family problem logically and effectively.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

This is an excellent day for sharing practical ideas with friends, dear Capricorn, or for sorting out a problem for or with a friend. You can really get to the heart of a matter, and you’re demonstrating just how reliable and helpful you can be. Even so, there can be some restlessness experienced today and on some level all week if you feel overwhelmed with things to do or choices to make. You’ll need to make some time for freeform activities and leisure – times when you can let loose your more spontaneous inclinations or adventurous side – otherwise even your more enjoyable projects could end up feeling burdensome. Consider needs for freedom this week, and you’ll do especially well.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Today and this week, if you’ve taken on too many projects, interests, or responsibilities, you might begin to feel these things impinging on your freedom, dear Aquarius. The answer may be to simplify or cut back on something, even if this is not the easiest choice. Be delicate when it comes to handling tricky topics now, and investigate a proposition or plan thoroughly before investing your time and energy into it. Watch for restlessness that leads to imprecise or sloppy communications. Otherwise, today is very strong for throwing yourself into a practical project or for learning new methods that help you master your work or daily routines. The trick now is to narrow your focus to one particular task and do it well.

Pisces

Pisces

Slow and steady wins the race today, dear Pisces. Today and tomorrow, you’ll really benefit if you move in slowly towards your goals or into conversations, rather than rushing in. It’s a good time for looking to areas that need adjusting or perfecting. Build upon your skills, do editing work, and express your commitment to a goal, your work, or a project by focusing on it rather than only talking about it. You are especially inclined to pay attention to details and to approach things logically right now. Partnerships get extra attention towards the end of the day, as your focus turns a little more sociable, but differences in approaches or values may temporarily interfere with harmony. Perhaps your own earnings becomes an issue with a partner for some of you this week. Find ways to either separate partnership and business, or aim to share as much as possible with someone close to you in order they gain more understanding of your goals.

Upgrading Your Life From the Inside Out

Hello everybody and welcome to the Energy Forecast for November 2015.

We’re here today in the Arboretum at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, in the Japanese garden. If you’re in the San Francisco area, or you get to visit, do come here and check this place out. It’s extraordinary and there are so many incredible and peaceful nature spots—I thought it would be the perfect place to film this month’s forecast.

As usual, we will begin by breathing for a moment. So just join me in taking a breath and releasing it … and taking another breath and releasing that.

It’s very like life, breathing. We take things in all the time and we release them. And just as the breath flows in and out, we’re constantly changing as we go through life.

The Themes For This Month: Connections and Upgrades

Two of the headlines for this month that came to me this morning while I was tuning in were: This is going to be both a month of connections and a month of upgrades.

To look at connections first, the energy conductivity in the world is getting stronger and stronger all of the time. So depending on where you are in your movement through awareness, and through integrated consciousness, you’ll be having different fluctuations.

Some of you might be tired. Some of you might need to power down a little bit. Some of you still might be experiencing the edges of conflict with other people in your life. We’re all at different points on the journey, but one of the overarching themes for this month that is going to show up for most of us in our life is that of connections.

In the last 2-3 months, this has started to appear for many of you—you’re making really deep, profound connections with other like-minded, like-hearted, like-feeling souls. And these connections are hugely important. Not only because by connecting with each other we become an even stronger team, an even stronger web of people, but there is a consolidation effect. Many of you have been yearning for closer friendships, better working partnerships, deeper intimate relationships, and this is a time when that energy is in the air.

Clearing The Space for Connection

So don’t be surprised if some of you are replaying old relationship heartbreaks in your dreams or in your daily thoughts. Disconnections with friends or with old lovers and partners are now rising to the surface for healing or clearing as we move into this era of greater connectivity.

Those of you who aren’t processing in that way might be finding that you’re beginning to meet to very like-minded people, very like-hearted people, and you’ll have strong feelings when you meet these people. There will be something in your body that will recognize them. You might put it down to a past life. You might just put it down to a feeling of a similar energy with them. Whatever the case may be, these are very activating connections that you’re walking into now.

Allowing The Path of Co-Creation To Reveal Itself

Some of the people that you’re meeting in this period of time, in this coming month, will be key players for you—and in some cases, for the rest of your life. But it’s most important to understand that when you recognise and have those connections with people, you don’t need to know what the future relationship is going to be.

For example, you may have a very activating moment with someone where you think: “God, I just met this person, and I just love them! I have this amazing feeling about where we can go together…” Let that feeling about “where you can go” remain in feeling, and let go of the details. Because when you have these experiences—these connections with people—it takes time for the two of you to alchemically merge and to let the path of co-creation reveal itself between you … and you don’t want to rush that.

If you find yourself rushing in your mind, if you find yourself saying, “I just met this woman, and I think that she could be the person who I create that healing center with, which I’ve always wanted to do…” just notice that thought. Don’t block the excitement or the vision. But do take the time to get to know each other first before moving quickly to action, because these ARE powerful connections that many of us are coming into alignment with now. And so, as you meet these people, in order to be ready to move into a future together, it’s very important to heal the past relationships or friendships through your body, before the new actions start.

The Illumination of Your REAL heart

Some of you will find this a little overwhelming to your heart. Remember, we’ve talked a lot over the last few months about how strong the heart energy is becoming on Earth at this time. And so for people who are conscious and present most of the time, and who have been actively opening themselves, many heart-connected relationships will now be showing up in your life.

This is a big thing.

It’s not just a great celebration. It’s actually a very big thing in and for the body, as it takes strength and patience to let the effect of a real heart-connected relationship illuminate you from within.

It does tend to heal the past disconnections—the heartbreaks, betrayals, losses of trust. And that’s a very invisible process that may sometimes come into your mind, but a lot of the time it’s just taking place energetically.

These are some of the reasons that I frequently encourage all of you to take space in your life. And I encourage myself to do the same on a daily basis. I have to remember this too—that there is so much moving right now on Planet Earth, and there is so much consciousness hitting these bodies of ours that we do need these moments each day to step back and let it all breathe through and absorb into our body.

So with these powerful new connections, just allow them to BE in your life. Allow the magic of the feeling of those relationships to move through you and trust that whatever your visionary mind is telling you about where this relationship can go or what it could do—be it a friendship, a work relationship, a love relationship—just let that play out. Let it take its place inside you and rearrange you. Because the beauty of when we connect with other people in such a powerful way is that our minds no longer need to do as much of the work.

Our minds are often leading us into safety or into areas where we hope we’re going to get our needs met. And when we genuinely have heartfelt, powerful connections with other people, we work as a tribe and we work as a hive, and then we’re no longer this individual entity that is solo having to make our life work. We enter this tapestry of love, this tapestry of connection, this tapestry of togetherness which, in and of itself, carries us forward. So that is why it’s a big thing, and that’s why it needs time.

Actively Welcoming Heartfelt Connections

If you’re listening to this and feeling some grief around what I’m talking about, you may be feeling loneliness, a sense of isolation, or sadness that this isn’t your story right now. If so, just write the following statement on a piece of paper:

I welcome loving, supportive, heartfelt friends and connections into my life.

I welcome loving, supportive, heartfelt friends and connections into my life.

Once you’ve written that down on a piece of paper, stick it on a wall in your house. It will not only rearrange the room for you, every time you see it, you will have an activation around what you are now bringing into your life. It’s a shockingly effective process, so do try that with anything you want to manifest.

Upgrades and Expansive New Choices

This brings me to the next theme for November, which is upgrades. In important ways, “upgrades” links to connections and to resolving issues and old feelings that you have had about certain people in your life.

The concept of upgrades is something that I first came across several years ago. It is the idea of when you say “no” to one opportunity or offer, you leave the space for a “yes” to a better opportunity or a better person’s offer.

Now you might say, “Well, hang on! We’re all equal, everyone’s the same.” And that is true, but often what we’re trying to do is fit ourselves into opportunities or relationships that are either smaller than we are or that aren’t really in alignment. And this can happen in many different ways. For example, if your parent was an alcoholic or abusive to you, somebody who was incapable of seeing and loving you as a child, it’s quite likely that until you’ve dug into yourself and revealed to yourself what it was that you went through, you might keep choosing people who never fully see you, never fully love you, never fully support you—because that is what you were used to and what you’re trying to resolve. But when you learn to say no to the abusive relationship, you leave yourself open to the upgrade.

Allowing Your Feelings: The Quick Route To Positive Change

Some of the reasons we don’t say no:

  • We’re afraid of isolation.
  • We’re afraid of disconnection.
  • We feel guilty for letting someone down if they have offered us something and we have declined.
  • We feel guilty about leaving someone.

The beauty of this is when you learn to say no and go through those feelings, you then leave yourself open to an upgraded opportunity to come into your world. There is so much power in learning to not being afraid of those feelings and just allowing. You can say to yourself, “Okay, as much as I wish I wasn’t feeling lonely, today I’m going to accept that I’m just going feel lonely.” And the power of this is when you admit to yourself you feel lonely, and you allow the loneliness to be in your body for as long as it needs to be, it leaves you a lot quicker than when you are avoiding it, denying it, or trying to distract yourself from it.

So, it is very powerful to remember that even if there is a little part of you that regrets saying no or has doubts, you ARE opening the space for a greater opportunity to come to you in the future.

Feeling and Sensing: Following Your Personal GPS

With this month being a month of connections and upgrades, some of you will be practicing saying no more frequently—which will mean having to follow your instincts more closely. “I really don’t want to go to that party this weekend, even though all my friends are going? A part of me yearns for a party, but my instinct is that I don’t want to go to that party.” Follow that! Because you never know who you might meet elsewhere because you didn’t go to that party, or what epiphany you might have privately at home … because you have listened to yourself and taken that time. Trust yourself and your instincts.

This sensory way of being is what we’re all calibrating to now, and it takes time to fully land in it. But know and trust that the connections and upgrades you are inviting yourself into will be so supportive.

It’s one thing for us to conceptually understand the new way of being we want for ourselves, but it’s another thing to actually have people in our lives who we can practise and share that with.

So, there are action steps that we need to take to support allowing those connections to come to us:

First, as discussed above, write down what it is you want to bring into your life around relationships. What qualities and experiences? And then look at where you have to prune and weed your relationship garden.

That’s not offensive to anybody in our relationship garden; it’s not about making others bad or wrong in any way. It’s about recognizing and admitting that you aren’t experiencing your highest self or your highest possibility with a particular person. Therefore, if you leave yourself open to new possibilities with others, not only will you elevate within those new relationships, but your lit-up energy will infuse everyone around you in an even higher way.

Honoring the Many Minds of Relationships in Your Life

I will just clarify something here: There are all kinds of relationships for us in our life. You know, there are the people who you might never be able to have an emotional conversation with, but you love and adore them and want to be around them, and so you are around them some of the time. But then you balance that by making sure that the people you can have an emotional conversation with, which is important to you, are also present in your life.

So it’s not necessarily about certain people being right or wrong, better or worse. It’s about looking at the whole tapestry of relationships in your life and asking: “Where do I need some adjustments to my tapestry? Where do I need to make some improvements?”

For some of you, recognize that the connection and upgrade energies might first come through you being with YOU. You might be thinking, “Ugh, Lee. But I’m exhausted. I’m sick of people. I just want to be on my own.” So maybe the focus this month for you is about giving yourself the gift of you.

With that, maybe November for you is about NOT making plans and committing to that. Your best action step could be to say no to plans with others. “I’m just going to give myself the space to be at home by myself and see what happens.”

You will find yourself again. And that will be your connection and upgrade.

And through finding yourself again, your ability to magnetize the right people and the right opportunities grows once more. Because you’re no longer corroded by relationships that are either no longer serving you or slowly chipping away at your energy on a daily basis.

This mastery thing—mastering our energies and emotions—is something that we all have to do completely by ourselves and in ourselves. We get amazing support, but ultimately, we have to learn how to listen to ourselves—and that’s a slow process sometimes. But if we keep remembering the importance of this process, we seriously upgrade not only our own lives but others as well. Through our genuine open-heartedness, we can become more benevolent toward other people than we were ever capable of being before now.

At this time, on this planet, that benevolence is what we need.

* * *

As ever everybody, thank you for your love and support. Thank you to those of you who send in financial donations or donations of love and support through your words. It means the world.

Have a great month and lots of love.

The Witches Moon Phase for November 4th is Waning Crescent

Witch
November 4
Waning Crescent
Illumination: 41%

The Moon today is in a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this phase the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

The Witches Magick for the 4th Day of the Snow Moon – Peri Protection Spell

witchcraft

Peri Protection Spell

{Snow Moon}

The Peries are Persian Faeries born from fire. They only eat perfume and are known to protect people against harmful faeries. In this spell, you are invoking the energy of the Peries as a means of protection from dark energies and negative events.

You will need a green candle and three drops of jasmine-scented oil.

Begin by anointing the candle with the three drops of oil while saying:

 

“Blessed oil of jasmine sweet

Draw the magick of the Peries to me.”

Put the candle in its holder, and light it while dedicating it to the Peris:

 

“Born from the divine fire

Peries protect me from evil and darkness.

As I will, so shall it be!”

Let the candle burn safely down all the way. Put some perfume on a piece of cloth and leave it out for the Peries. Anytime you feel darkness and negativity trying to come into your space, light a candle and call in the Peries for protection.

Let’s Talk Witch – Pantheon Pathways

Pantheon Pathways

 

As Witches, we often draw upon the mythology of many different lands to find the god and goddess figures that we identify with most strongly. And while this can vary greatly from Witch to Witch (like everything else we do-hey, at least we are not a bunch of boring conformists), many of us are drawn to the pantheons (from the Greek “temple of the gods,” meaning the officially recognized gods of a particular people) of the Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Celtic cultures, with a few Norse and Hindu gods thrown in for good measure.

It is interesting to see how much the gods from one culture resemble the gods in another. It makes sense, I suppose, when you consider that most Pagan peoples had the same interests as we do today: love, protection, prosperity, the moon, growing things, etc.

In addition, it is historically possible in many cases to follow the path that a god took from one culture to another. For instance, many of the Roman gods and goddesses were taken more or less directly from the Greeks who preceded them.

It is fine to focus on one pantheon or culture, but it is also okay to mix and match. The gods that want you will find you, that much is for sure.

Wit from the World Wide Web:
“Top 10 Reasons Why Athames Are Black”

 

10. So they’ll go with any color of robe.

9. So you can cover up nicks and scratches with shoe polish.

8. It’s slimming. (Can’t have fat athames, can we?)

7. It doesn’t show dirt.

6. Because finding a dropped athame in an outdoor ritual in the dark is a test of loyalty to your faith.

5. It’s so much more dignified than chartreuse.

4. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

3. Someone spilled all the paints together, and that’s what ended up.

2. No, no! Black is for winter rituals-use white before Labor Day!

1. So that we’d have something to argue about other than how athame is pronounced!

Wednesday Is Ruled By Mercury

 

Wednesdays are wild and wacky days. They are for communication, change, cunning, and the arts. This is a Mercury day, and just its patron god this day is full of contradictions, change, and excitement. Some suggestions for Wednesday enchantments would include:

Pulling a little Wednesday color magic into your life by wearing purples or orange

Carrying a multipurpose agate with you and tapping into its various charms

Working with magical plants such as the fern for protection. This plant will also boost the power of any other magical plants with which it is arranged.

Incorporating lavender into charms and spells for transformation

Using the charming scent of lily of the valley to improve your memory, or working with the aspen tree for communication

Calling on Athena, patron of arts and crafts, for inspiration for a new project

Fanning out a Tarot spell to increase you creativity

Calling on Hermes on a Wednesday night to bring movement and good luck into your life.
