SIMPLE CRYSTAL HEALING SPELL
–3 candles- 2 light blue & 1 white
–Allspice & Rosemary (equal parts each) or a Healing type incense
–photo or paper with name of recipient a small quartz crystal
Place the candles on your altar or workspace in a semi-circle with the white candle between the two blue ones. Place your incense burner above the white candle. Place the person’s name in the center of the layout, with the quartz crystal on top. Light the incense then the candles. Center yourself and inhale the incense as you think of all ill health dispelling from the person and instead being replaced by healing energy, much as the air is filled with the smoke of the incense.
Gather your healing energy and when you feel ready, release the energy, directing it through the crystal and to the recipient who’s name or photo is beneath it. Give the recipient the crystal to carry as a charm for continued good health.
MAGIC HEALING STONE
What you will need: any stone, a green candle and a white one
To make the healing stone: take an average stone from your yard or anywhere else (if you have no yard or they all really suck) or you can purchase one like a tiger’s eye.
Once you’ve got one cast your circle, call your quarters. Do an altar devotion then cleanse consecrate, and empower it. Instill the flame of a green candle and a white one to empower it with healing magic and purify it.
While doing this hold your pentacle over it and say as many healing spells as you know. Then pour holy water on it and you’re done.
MAGIC HEALING WATER-HOLED STONES
Take a holed stone (naturally holed stones often found in or beside running water or the ocean) and put it in a vessel of clear water. Remove it and the water is possessed of healing vibrations which can be used in healing baths, to anoint a healing charm, and so on. Perform this on the New, waxing, or full moon with the focus on healing and getting better. Place the bowl of water with stone out under the moon to collect Her energies and blessings. Say something along to lines of:
Lady Luna, Bless this water with your healing energies.
Then leave it outside under the light of the moon for nine minutes, nine being a healing number. You might also sit before the water and meditate over it, collecting and projecting healing energies into it. Then bring it indoors, store it in a glass container such as a mason jar and use.
You could also drop a bit of blue food coloring into it and keep it in a vial to carry as a talisman. Use some of it in bathing waters along with a healing herb or oil. You could also anoint your forehead with it or afflicted are and then go deep into a meditative state concentrating on healing the disease/illness/problem.
Astronomy Picture of the Day
Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.
2016 January 6
Explanation: This timely, telescopic, two panel mosaic spans about 10 full moons across planet Earth’s predawn skies. Recorded as the year began from Tenerife, Canary Islands, near the top of the frame are the faint coma and tail of Comet Borrelly (P/19). A comet with a seven year orbital period, Borrelly’s nucleus was visited by the ion propelled spacecraft Deep Space 1 near the beginning of the 21st century. Anchoring the scene at the bottom is brilliant star Arcturus (Alpha Bootes) and Comet Catalina (C/2013 US10) a first time visitor from the Oort Cloud. Catalina’s yellowish dust tail extends below and right. Buffeted by winds and storms from the Sun, the comet’s complex ion tail sweeps up and toward the right, across most of the field of view. Remarkably, one of the composition’s 30 second exposure subframes also caught the trail of a bright meteor, slashing toward the left between comets and bright star.
Upcoming, marvelous Venus-Saturn conjunction
Once again, tomorrow before dawn – January 7, 2016 – look for the slender waning crescent moon close to the planets Venus and Saturn in the eastern predawn sky. And know that Venus and Saturn are getting close! They’ll be closest on the morning of January 9, with a conjunction on January 9 at 0400 UTC. It’ll be their closest conjunction since August 26, 2006 (and the closest conjunction of any two planets since March 22, 2013).
At their closest, Venus and Saturn will be only 5 arc-minutes (1/12o) apart from one another on the sky’s dome. For some perspective, 1/12o is the equivalent of 1/6 of the apparent diameter of a full moon.
Get up early, or around 90 to 75 minutes before sunrise, to view fainter Saturn snuggling up close to dazzling Venus. If you get up late – say less than one hour before sunrise – aim your binoculars at Venus to view Saturn and Venus taking stage in the same binocular field.
And, by the way, Venus reached its highest point in the predawn sky some while ago. Day by day, it’s sinking downward in the direction of sunrise, while Saturn is climbing upward. Before much longer, Saturn will shine above Venus in the January 2016 morning sky.
Also, look for modestly-bright Mars roughly midway between Venus, the sky’s brightest planet, and Jupiter, the sky’s second-brightest planet.
While you’re at it, get an eyeful of the dark side of the moon, which is aglow in earthshine or sunlight twice-reflected from Earth to the moon, and then the moon back to Earth.
Although the moon will drop out of the morning sky in a day or two, you can rely on Venus to guide your eye to the planet Saturn for many mornings to come. These two worlds will appear very, very close together over the next several mornings.
Take advantage of this opportunity to watch all of these worlds through binoculars or a low-powered telescope.
Bottom line: On the morning of January 7, 2016, let the moon be your guide to Venus and Saturn in the eastern sky. Then watch for the great conjunction of Venus and Saturn over the next several days

Your Three Dragon MahJong Reading for Today
In Chinese Culture the Dragon is generally considered a sign of great luck and power. However the Red, Green and White Dragons in Mahjong represent three distinct influences that can affect your life. The Dragon Reading creates a relationship between sets of tiles to each Dragon to explore how the Three Dragons will influence you now and in the near future.
The White Dragon is indeed a wily fellow. His domain is the great unknown, and the tile set under him suggests an area or areas that could affect your life in unexpected ways.
The Water tile denotes a need for communication. A trip may be necessary to communicate properly. You may be called upon to present proof of ownership or that an event actually took place.
The South Wind tile is considered to be a very good sign in a reading. It almost ensures a satisfactory end to any problem.
The Toad tile indicates some troubling moments along your life’s path, but these aches will heal. It also suggests your ambition may be greater than your reach.
Your Daily Tile
January 6, 2016
Symbol: Lotus Flower
The Lotus Flower tile represents birth or rebirth. On a spiritual level it may indicate you are about to reach new heights in your understanding of your place in the cosmos. Physically it may suggest a child is coming, or a new project is about to emerge. The Lotus Flower tile also speaks of regeneration, and may indicate a time of recovery from hardship—a new beginning.
Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today
The Storm represents the trouble and discord that creep into our lives from time to time. The storm is represented by a tornado whirling its way across a fertile plain. Tornados are powerful but relatively small, short lived storms, which means that while the turmoil they indicate may be strong it will at least pass quickly. Like the tornado, The Storm is a force outside yourself and beyond your control. During a stormy period you may lose ground. However, knowing one is upon you can certainly help you keep your losses to a minimum, or even turn what might be a disaster into a windfall.
As a daily card, The Storm denotes a time when you should be prepared to face some large challenges in your life. You may find yourself losing more than you gain for awhile. The key to weathering the storm is preparation. You know its coming, so be ready for it and there is a possibility that you can transform a tumultuous event into something good.
