For The New Year, Letting Go and Starting Over

For The New Year, Letting Go and Starting Over

There are always times, whether it’s New Year or not, when we have to let go of something that’s not working. Letting go of anything that’s become dear to you can be so hard. It can leave you feeling lost and out of balance with everything. As we travel on our journeys through this life, we will all have to face letting go of something. And with that fresh start, we face the challenge of a new way of living. The world around us is constantly changing. What may have been right for us or felt important to us in the past may not now have a place in our lives. Sometimes, the decision to leave things behind can be a hard one to make. So how do you know whether you are making the right decision to move on and let go?

If you are magically traveling your path, here are a few things you may want to consider as you leave things behind:
Is someone or something having a negative effect on your life?
Have you outgrown something, or grown apart from something?
Are you happy in your life as things are? Have your goals changed?
Do you live in the past? Hold a grudge? Are you in fear of things being different?
Are your needs being fulfilled? If you are starting on a new path, is something holding you back?

Only you can know whether it’s time to let go of something. It’s a bit like smoking, I suppose. Unless you really want to give it up, no amount of advice or knowledge is going to help you. But it may help you make your own choice. Listen to your heart. Inside, you will know if it’s right for you to move on and start over. As you do, it may be worth considering some of these thoughts:

Accept that things need to change in your life in order for you to live the way you need to and embrace a new path.
Take a step back and focus on what you really want and need— what will help you in the future.
Look inside yourself, and not to others, to move on. Be guided by your own beliefs and needs.
Take a chance— and a deep breath! That first move in letting go and starting over is the most terrifying. It will only get easier with time.
Be thankful for your past, but focus on today and keep moving ahead. It’s your future.

You can only walk so far with a backpack full of burdens. Set it down, sort through it, and then move on. You will feel lighter and freer!
Wow! How heavy was that for me? But I hope someone out there found it useful. Let’s face it, we all have to leave things behind and sometmes start over again. Change can be one of the joys of life!

Let’s Talk Witch – Personal Power

Let’s Talk Witch – Personal Power

Now that your intuition is up and humming, we can turn our focus to personal power, the next step in natural witchery. Here is where we begin to make the magick more individual. I mean, honestly, don’t you want your magick to have some character?

Just a little something special that separates you from everyone else? Of course you do. By discovering your personal power, you’ll crank up the level of your expertise and put the focus on your own individual style of magick.

We are going to accomplish this by taking a deeper look into the elements of earth, air, fire, and water, and how they play out and affect our magickal selves. Our personalities are a wonderful mixture of the qualities of the four elements. And while it is certainly true that we each feel an affinity to a certain natural element or elements from time to time, we need to be in balance to harmoniously employ all four. It is important to reflect on each of the elements and to consider how you individually experience magick through all four of them. Then allow those elements to flow into your life.

To boost your personal power and to have it up and running at top speed, you will need to get— well, for lack of a better word—“ personal,” and do a little soul-searching. After all, the best individual to transform your life and help you reclaim your own powers is, of course, you.

The power of the elements and all of nature is deep and infinite, and the following elemental information is not a 101 rehash. Truthfully, this type of knowledge is vital for everyone; this includes the more experienced or advanced practitioners too. For years I always thought that to be an “advanced Witch” meant you had somehow discovered all these phenomenal mysteries of the cosmos— when in actuality what you begin to discover is that those basic lessons you first learned have many hidden layers. The longer you study and practice, the more of those levels you will begin to explore and uncover. There truly are worlds within worlds.

Study and take the time to search inside yourself and to uncover the hidden, layered powers of the natural elements. These lessons will be a bit different for everyone. That’s what makes this type of magick so special, because you are adding dimension to your craft. By using your intuition— and stretching out those psychic abilities that we worked on in the first section of this book— you will begin to see how each of the four natural elements play out within your magickal personality. Why is this so darn important, anyway? Because you will gain an understanding of your elemental strengths and your weaknesses. For your magickal power to be its most effective, you have to take a little private inventory and then remove any imbalances or blocks. This in turn allows you to focus and fine-tune your magick, and turn up the level of your personal power. To begin our lesson of self-discovery, look over the following elemental personality traits and see which ones you most closely identify with.

Full Moon Magick for When The Full Moon Falls on a Thursday

Full Moon Magick for When The Full Moon Falls on a Thursday

Happy, Healthy Family Spell

You will need:
• A green 7-day jar candle (green for prosperity and to align with Jupiter’s energies)
• A permanent marker to draw Thursday’s planetary symbol of Jupiter (4) and the names of each household member
• A photo of your entire household (make sure all of the members are in the photo; if necessary, use a couple of photos to get your kids, spouse, and your pets)
• 3 oak leaves gathered from a living tree (oak leaves are linked to Thor as well as the planet Jupiter)
• i tumbled turquoise stone for prosperity and protection
• i small tumbled moonstone for loving emotions
• The Ten of Pentacles and Ten of Cups tarot cards
• A 6 x 6-inch square of green fabric or a green sachet bag
• i2 inches white satin ribbon
•A lighter or matches

If possible, set up this spell on a safe, flat surface where the light of the full moon illuminates your working area. If weather permits, this would be a nice spell to work outdoors-just be sure to move the candle indoors when you finish the spell. To start, take the marker and draw the planetary symbol of Jupiter on the jar candle.

Next, add the names of all the members of your household; this includes pets!

Place the candle and the other components of the spell on your working area. The stones can nestle around the jar candle. Lay the photo(s) of your family in the center of your altar, with the two tarot cards, the Ten of Cups/Cauldrons and the Ten of Pentacles, one on each side of the photos. Place the oak leaves above the photos and the cards. Keep the sachet bag or fabric and ribbon within reach.

Light the candle, and place your hands on the photos. Then repeat the spell verse:

Abundance flourishes on the night of the full moon
May the deities of Thursday heed this Witch’s tune
Thor, hear my call and bless my family
Bring us love, support, and prosperity
Keep us healthy, happy, and secure, come what may
As we stand strong together through all of our days.

Gather the photos, one of the oak leaves, and the two tumbled stones, and place them in the center of the fabric. Gather up the edges into a small bundle, and use the ribbon to tie it closed or place the items inside the sachet bag and pull the drawstring closed.
Knot the ribbon three times, and say:

By all the power of three times three
This magick strengthens my family.
Finally, close the spell with these lines:
May the full moon bless all of the ways
I work my witchery on this day.

Allow the candle to burn out in a safe place; it will take about a week. I typically put jar candles on my brick hearth, inside of a large cast-iron cauldron, so even if it somehow how got tipped over, the flame would stay contained in a fireproof area.
Clean up your other spell supplies. Save the two oak leaves and keep them for future magick. Return the cards to the tarot deck. Keep the bag with the photos, stones, and leaf together in a safe place until the next full moon. Then, on the night of the following full moon, open it up. Keep the photos and the crystals, and return the oak leaf to nature

Your Personal Power Tarot Cards for January 12th

Your Personal Power Tarot Card for Today

These cards represent strengths you were born with.

The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man is the most enigmatic card of the Tarot. Even Tarot giants like Waite, Crowley and Levi had trouble deciphering The Hanged Man’s true meaning. Generally The Hanged Man is thought to represent the value of surrender and selfless acts. The Hanged Man embodies the notion that sometimes to lose is to win. Unlike the aggressive Chariot, The Hanged Man creates his fate through inaction and accepts his fortune passively, without resistance. He does not struggle to control the path his life takes, but rather allows events to sweep him where they will, even if he is called upon to sacrifice himself. He is so at ease with the Fate the Universe chose for him that even hanging upside down from a tree does not ruffle his inner peace.

When The High Priestess or Strength is among your personal cards, the influence of The Hanged Man may be increased. Having The Magus or Chariot in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Hanged Man.

 

 

 

 

The Empress

The Empress is “The Earth Mother” of the Tarot. She embodies all that is nurturing, clean and wholesome. Her powers resonate from her drive to create and care for life on a grand scale. She is in tune with Nature’s rhythm and realizes that life’s most pleasurable moments often stem from the simplest things. She is not afraid to enjoy herself–to let loose—to the point of being lavish. Abundance and luxury are important to her. The Empress is completely comfortable with her femininity and her sexuality. She is sensual, earthy, generous, and likes the good life. Still, her driving force is a need to create and nurture, and fulfilling this need overrides everything else.

When The Lover or The Star are among your personal cards, the influence of The Empress may be increased. Having the Emperor or Death in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Empress.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for January 12th is The Emperor

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Emperor



The Emperor is blessed with the skills to successfully lead others. He can turn chaos into order and provide structure to that which is unbound. He is quick of mind and confident in his power and right to rule, and does so in a just manner. Although stern by nature, he truly is the ultimate father figure. He will provide as needed, teach those with unanswered questions, protect the vulnerable, set and maintain boundaries. His perfect world runs on schedule and is free of any disturbances. What the Emperor must be wary of is setting boundaries and rules where none are needed. If he isn’t careful not to over use his powers he may well become a tyrant.

Your Daily Witches Rune for January 12 is The Crossed Spears

The Daily Witches Rune

The Crossed Spears

Meaning: The presence of the spear signifies arguments, negative events, and all manner of strife of an upsetting nature. However similar to the ‘Tower’ tarot card if next to a positive rune it could mean the end of an argument or quarrel. If with the rings it means the healing or renewal of a relationship. If there are military connections it could mean promotion. If illness is within the equation it means a speedy and successful recovery.

Learn The Tarot – Judgment

Judgement


You have the power to make changes and feel complete.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

General Meaning

The Judgement card, sometimes called “Resurrection,” represents the great reunion that the ancients believed would happen once in every age. This was the time when souls are harvested and taken home to their place of origin, outside the solar system. Then the world is seeded with a batch of new souls and the process starts over.

From a modern point of view, this great reunion — which includes every personality that you have ever been and every soul that you have done deep work with — reunites to consciously complete the process. In a way, we symbolically celebrate this returning to center every year on our birthday.

In personal terms, the Judgment Tarot card points to freedom from inner conflicts, and so clear a channel, that the buried talents and gifts of past incarnations can come through an individual in this lifetime. This card counsels you to trust the process of opening yourself, because what emerges is of consistently high quality. You can effortlessly manifest as a multi-dimensional being, and assist in evoking that response from others.
In the Advice Position

Let go of your past. The future welcomes you with a bounty of growth and change.

The card in the Advice position suggests a course of action which will harmonize what you want with what is currently possible.

The Judgment card advises that you allow yourself to grow, transform, and release hidden potentials within yourself. Divest yourself of fruitless endeavors without neglecting your duties. At the same time, invest your energies in new growth.

It’s not necessary to reject others, but refuse to be manipulated by those who cry foul. This process isn’t about them anyway. It is about you and the desire you feel to change your life and become a more complete person. Trust your impulses and allow this remarkable awakening to happen.
