Preparations for New Moon Gathering n Coven Life’s Chat room

If you will be attending out Coven’s New Moon ritual on Thursday, May 25, 2017, at 7:00 PM CT, there are some preparations you have to do before hand. Please have you candle prepared beforehand. If you choose to inscribe it the night of the gathering during that ritual there will be a two-minute window once the circle and Watchtowers have been called for meditation and raising as well as combining our energies. With our energies combined it will give the spell and your candle more power. The full ritual and any links you will need will be up on Coven Life’s website by Thursday, May 18, 2017. If you have any questions please email Lady Beltane directly at ladybeltane@aol.com. 

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

1 White Taper Candle (After engraving your candle freeze it. Take it out of your freezer and place in a candle holder that it can stay in somewhere in your home after gathering for at least two hours before our gathering begins to allow it to thaw at and to room temperature otherwise, it may explode possibly causing you or your home harm.) Do not place the candle in the microwave to defrost it will explode!

Think hard on spiritual goal that can come to fruition or be working at the next Full Moon

Atheme or Sharp Item to engrave candle

One word engraved on candle to state your goal or intention

Working candle magic is one of the easiest ways to work a long-term spell. A long-term spell includes any that take more times of doing it than once for you to get the out you desire from the spell.

I will have a spell prepared to empower all our candles initially.

Below is the spell you will say each day you light your candle:

Hecate I call upon you as I light this candle to release the goal inscribed.

After your candle is lit rep=eat this spell three times:

Candle burning bright

Help me reach my goal with all the power you hold.

Bring the power and energy from the coven’s ritual forward with all its might.

Do not let my intention you contain fold.

So mote it be (or however you end your spells.)

Get A Jump On Tomorrow…..

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, May 17th

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope

We want life to be simple so we can rely on the material world to reveal what we need to know. But an awkward Sun-Saturn aspect reminds us that everything isn’t limited to mechanical cause and effect. Additionally, a confusing alignment between expansive Jupiter and dispersive Neptune lures us into the depths of our imaginations. Meanwhile, the unorthodox Aquarius Moon encourages us to look into the complexity of the future rather than the past.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

You might have sufficient reasons to reject someone’s offer now that your mind is on the more practical side of reality. Nevertheless, your insistence on boiling down an entire program to a simple bottom line may cause you to miss the potential in an exciting opportunity. Continue weighing the pros and cons until you know what makes the most sense. But don’t let your memories of a previous failure stop you from exploring the less obvious benefits offered by the road less taken. To reach your greatest potential you must overcome your greatest fears.

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

Maintaining an objective approach to your job enables you to make the best decisions today. Nevertheless, it’s still tempting to get lost in an illusion and then act as if there is no difference between reality and fantasy. There is little doubt that your attitude influences the level of your success, but you can’t treat all thoughts equally. Rather than striving harder in pursuit of your heart’s desires, choose your goals with greater care. Sportscaster Stuart Scott cautioned, “Don’t downgrade your dream just to fit your reality. Upgrade your conviction to match your destiny.”

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Yesterday’s answers become today’s questions. However, your renewed sense of wonder and growing uncertainty is not about self-doubt. You’re fascinated with the mysteries of the cosmos and a new wave of curiosity gets the best of you now. Fortunately, there are gems of wisdom waiting to be discovered in the twilight of your consciousness. Surprisingly, your imagination reveals more practical options than logical analysis. Novelist Lloyd Alexander wrote, “Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.”

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

You may gain inspiration from a close friend or relative today, yet your vision comes with a cost. Seeing new possibilities for your future can be an eye-opening experience, but it also increases your ambiguity. Your excitement mounts when you start thinking about the unrealized potential in your life. Nevertheless, too many choices could be overwhelming, tempting you to seal yourself off in a bubble of safety. Tony Robbins notes, “It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You think you have a solid handle on the current dynamics at work and that you can see how to best achieve success for you and your team. But believing that your plan is the only way to reach your goal doesn’t necessarily reflect the reality of the situation. Your rose-colored glasses alter your perceptions now, prompting you to miss some of the potential traps that are more obvious to others. Talk with your peers and listen to their feedback with impartial ears. Bruce Lee said, “Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.”

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

You wish you could break out of your rut and do things differently today. Nevertheless, it’s wise to have a logical reason for your unorthodox behavior, since rebellion is not the same as innovation. Playing the role of a contrarian won’t make you any more successful now, but it might alienate you from your closest allies. Peace activist Mairead Maguire wrote, “We need radical thinking, creative ideas, and imagination.” The path to meaningful change is often walked alone.

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

Your attraction to people may be more based on your own expectations today than with reality. You’re eager to connect with someone who shares your vision of the future, but you might be too quick in assuming you know what’s in another person’s heart. Nevertheless, exchanging dreams begins the process of getting acquainted on a deeper level. Avoid jumping to conclusions now; let each other’s stories unfold naturally. Singer Jim Morrison said, “A true friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.”

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

Guardian angels are watching your back now, even if you’re not convinced of their existence. You can call it luck if that fits in better with your beliefs — but however you label the divine intervention, it’s only the first step. Transforming an obstacle into a blessing requires your passionate involvement today, because it’s not something that will just automatically happen. Pay close attention to subtle events; if a door appears in a previously impenetrable wall, it’s up to you to open it and walk through. It’s as if the Universe is saying, “Don’t tell me what you want; show me what you can do.”

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

It’s tempting to put all your eggs in one basket, especially if that basket is just beyond your grasp. This might sound like a self-defeating plan, but it can actually work in your favor today. Instead of trying to finish anything you start, just set the intention for what you hope to accomplish. Surreal Neptune is blurring your goals, making them impossible to reach now. But you have much to gain by shifting into a metaphysical orientation. Let your dreams inspire you by stretching your vision beyond your familiar limits. Dare to step over the edge and fly.

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

You can soar as high as any eagle once your work is done. But your wings can’t gain altitude as long as you still have responsibilities anchoring you in the real world. Nevertheless, you may be in a position where you could focus on your long-term career goals today, rather than handling crises from one moment to the next. Instead of struggling to climb the mountaintop now, go on a reconnaissance mission to strategize for your next summit. Fellow Capricorn Baltasar Gracian said, “Readiness is the mother of luck.”

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

You’re being asked to leave behind the emotional safety of your everyday life and walk into an uncharted realm where everything is new and different. Your imagination has no boundaries. Anything can happen once you give yourself permission to explore your fantasies. But this metaphysical adventure isn’t just about fun and games; your mission is dead serious today. You are a scout, searching out possible places to live in your future. Whatever you find now in your dreams has the potential of becoming your home.

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

Hopefully, your mundane matters are in order and you’re ready for a journey to a parallel universe. Fortunately, you don’t even need to let anyone know you’re leaving today, since you can magically be in two places at once. Maintain the illusion of consistency in the real world when you blast off into the realms of unseen dimensions. Although spiritual pursuits are often physically exhausting, exploring the inner and outer cosmos is a life-altering experience. Rumi wrote, “The door is open wide; do not go back to sleep.”

If You Were Born Today, May 16th

 

If You Were Born Today, May 16

Exceptionally talented in the creative arts, including music, you are very able to focus your energies enough to make a success out of yourself in the arts. Your personality is colorful, yet somewhat reserved and very poised. At times you can be so one-track minded that you can get into a rut. Charming and romantic by nature, you are likeable and personable. Famous people born today: Liberace, Janet Jackson, Megan Fox, Henry Fonda, Pierce Brosnan, Debra Winger, Tori Spelling.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

You feel energized and inspired creatively this year, ready to fight for something you believe in. You find it easier to assert yourself and your desires. The year is infused with enterprising spirit. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You can see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. Negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, travel, and competitive activities, including sports and business, are favored.

Helping you with the practical side of life is a Mercury-Saturn connection. Your thinking is often pragmatic and realistic, and your judgment is especially sound. You also derive much satisfaction from practical achievement. It would behoove you to identify and focus on finding pleasure in the simple things that make you happy.

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. It’s a good year in which to get organized, to do detail work, and to prepare for the future. Work done during this period in your life will have tangible results in the future. Relationships with younger people in your life are solidified.

Your love nature is strong although given to extremes at times. Over-inflated expectations is something to watch out for. You may overvalue something (or someone), perhaps in an attempt to dramatize your life. While at times you may feel insecure on a social level, other times this year you feel quite the opposite: sociable, in the mood to party, dramatic, extravagant, and inclined to overindulge as a result of a feeling of inner discontent and a desire for more from life than daily routines.

This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

This could also be a year in which you are considerably more creative. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities this year, you could also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. Your energy can vary greatly from one period to the next, so take advantage of the “high” periods in order to offset the possible loss in productivity during the low-energy stages.

The year ahead is one of both practical application and a resourceful, confident approach. It can be a time of career advances and is a strong period for focusing on new ventures. You can make serious progress on work that’s important to you. Connections made this year tend to motivate you to learn more and gain more confidence in your ideas. Moderation in your social life is recommended.

 


2017
 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.


2018
 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, May 16th

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, May 16th

 

Aries 

Aries Horoscope

Aries

Today’s energies favor pleasant conversations and cooperation, dear Aries. There can be a rather sudden awareness that you need some time to yourself, and while you’re especially motivated to get things done, don’t ignore your need for down time. We are approaching a Mercury station, which can bring some challenges when it comes to being understood, but later today, the general intent is positive and cooperative, so it’s important to pay more attention to gestures than specific words chosen to express ourselves. There can be a pleasant feeling of devotion to a person, fantasy, or the idea of love today, and this can inspire creative works or ideas.

Taurus

Taurus

While the first half of the day can be somewhat temperamental, dear Taurus, there is generally good energy for warm, affectionate conversations and overtures. Surprising news may be part of it. There is particularly nice energy for combining friends and family or home life in pleasing ways, and for having an especially positive faith in the people you care about and domestic matters in general. You are more idealistic than usual, and happily, most people around you are unlikely to burst your bubble. Happiness is natural and easy, as it’s coming from within.

Gemini

Gemini

Life can be hectic in many ways today, dear Gemini, and you can find some obstacles to your personal plans, but fortunately your mood is surprisingly peaceful at heart now so that you are far more tolerant of problems. A warm communication might occur now that boosts your spirits and makes you feel understood or cared for. Your sensitivities are heightened now, and you can be especially creative in your work or projects. Artistic achievement is favored. Mercury is approaching a direct station in your sign, so that it’s important to take more time to digest events and ideas in the coming few days.

Cancer

Cancer

Tensions in the first half of the day are very likely to be resolved, and quite satisfyingly at that, in the second half, dear Cancer. This morning, you may be wrestling with restlessness and unsure of where to direct your energy. Don’t allow restlessness to rule you or to choose your mood for you. As the day advances, you can find very creative ways to satisfy a desire for safety and comfort, as well as the need to feel more adventurous and experience different things. There is good energy for making, spending, or sorting out money, taking care of valuables, as well as for a feeling of abundance.

Leo

If you’ve been ignoring your needs for deep connections, intimacy, or time to yourself recently, you’ll feel the imbalance today, dear Leo. As much as you enjoy and benefit from friendly interactions, emotionally you’re craving a little more. As the day progresses, you’re likely to come to peace with someone, and also with yourself, as your emotions smooth out. In fact, you are able to find creative ways to express your feelings and to connect with others. There may be compliments or other shows of appreciation coming your way. You might attract an admirer.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph

Virgo

If you’ve been too busy to really spend time with a significant other or friend recently, dear Virgo, today you’ll feel the lack and you are likely to be quite anxious to make things right. It’s not easy to find that balance, however, as you can be pulled in different directions. It may be difficult to understand a partner or a job requirement, as messages you are receiving are unclear and conflicting right now. As the day advances, though, life remains busy but you’re more likely to let go of the tendency to overthink. There is very good energy for finding creative ways to satisfy your various needs and spend time with others. You can be especially gracious, and a partner or special person can be especially comforting and accepting.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol

Libra

Today and the next few days can be somewhat challenging if you’re looking for clear facts or conversations, dear Libra, with Mercury approaching a direct station. However, today is wonderful for imagination, and if you pay closer attention to the intentions of the messages you’re receiving, you’ll find people are really quite cooperative. Avoid premature decisions, but enjoy the opportunities of the day, as you’re likely to get quite close to a friend or associate. While the morning can present a conundrum involving responsibilities, as the day progresses, you can find wonderful ways to satisfy your need to set things straight and tend to work, as well as your desire to socialize and network.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph

Scorpio

There can be some tension that results from a conflict between your will and your emotions with a Last Quarter Moon occurring just before noon today, dear Scorpio. Today and in the next few days, try to give in to the idea that you won’t get the whole picture now, and let go. Matters will reveal themselves to you soon, and you don’t have to push anything. This can be a real load off your back! As the day advances, the pace is likely quite busy, but more pleasantly so. There is very creative energy that ties your sector of romance and entertainment with your sector of career and responsibility. You may feel freer to express yourself through your work, or your more playful side to others.

Sagittarius 

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol

Sagittarius

If emotions are being released in spurts, or if you are not expressing yourself confidently, then your outbursts may be confusing to others, dear Sagittarius. Although we’re often encouraged to express our feelings, it’s sometimes kinder to ourselves and others if we sort out some of the less evolved ones on our own before releasing them. The Last Quarter Moon this morning can stimulate a strong need for comfort and groundedness, but others are also drawing you out, so you’ll have to find a balance. As the day advances, though, there is better energy for finding comfortable solutions, particularly as you may be able to satisfy the desire for familiarity as well as adventure in creative ways. A nice message or conversation can take place that puts you right at ease.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph

Capricorn

Responsibilities to others or to your work can seem to clash with a sudden and strong need to explore your own interests or have an overdue conversation, dear Capricorn. While you can have a bit of a struggle trying to juggle too many activities, you’re also likely to find creative ways to tend to a variety of needs by combining them or adjusting your expectations of each. There can be a very lovely, accepting, and healing conversation or discovery of a more intimate or personal nature today. Diplomacy can help an important sale or advance today.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Relationships may be a little puzzling in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius. Your feelings may not be see-sawing, but your fears or worries may very well be. Money matters may also be an issue or cause for some concern. Even so, there is powerful energy for finding creative ways to satisfy a variety of seemingly conflicting needs. You can find ways to take risks or to enjoy yourself that don’t leave you feeling spent or overly indulgent. There is also beautiful energy for coming to an understanding with a partner or significant person. This can be due to a sense of shared values or respect for differing ones. There is more acceptance in the energy of the day that becomes you. This is a strong time generally for personal appeal and solutions to relating problems that are much more than just cosmetic.

Pisces

Pisces

People are especially amenable today, dear Pisces, and health or work can be pleasing. You are able to relax sufficiently to let your guard down. You are seeing more beauty in family, work, or simply circumstances around you, and life through this “lens” is more entertaining. You are imaginative by nature, but today this is enhanced, and can be in full force when it comes to finding different ways to enjoy your daily life. It’s a wonderful time to beautify your surroundings. It’s also a strong day for personal appeal.

Mercury in Taurus

Mercury in Taurus

Give up the gab while Mercury is in earthy Taurus

Get ready to give up your gift of gab! Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into slow and steady Taurus on May 16, 2017.

Speedy Mercury finds a more sturdy environment in earthy Taurus. This period is one in which solid values, concrete ideas and practical perspectives are likely to take on greater significance for all of us.

Mercury generally excels at flexibility, but Taurus is arguably the least flexible of all the zodiac signs. We may find ourselves digging in and taking rigid positions when opposed by different ideas, concepts or facts at this time. It’s vital that we not lose our ability to stay open-minded to overcome Taurean resistance to whatever is new or different.

Practicality gets things done

Ideally, Mercury in Taurus connects us with the earthy realities that will nurture the growth and development of our ideas. Taurus offers a rich soil of values and commitment that can provide resources to carry thoughts from conception to birth. Slow, careful conversations enable us to consider alternatives without ever losing sight of fundamental values and underlying practical issues.

Weekly Forecast: May 14 – 20, 2017

Weekly Forecast: May 14 – 20, 2017

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning into the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.  

Weekly Forecast: May 14 – 20, 2017

5/19 ~ Saturn (structure & reality) ~trine~ Uranus (liberation & freedom):

This is a somewhat rare, potent and generally positive activation between two very different planets. Saturn rules structure, boundaries, limits, time and building a foundation, while Uranus is all about radical change, innovative ideas, forward-thinking & (often sudden) awakening of consciousness. One wants to stick with the tried ‘n true, while the other is always trying to improve things by pushing beyond those original ideas and expanding them in brilliant ways. Saturn will make an appointment, while Uranus always shows up unannounced. But if you think back to 2008-2010 when they were in opposition to one another, you may remember some extremes between the old and the new trying to find that middle ground that honors what is stable about the original, but allows for creative change that, while disruptive initially, leads to great things we would never consider if we didn’t think outside the box a little. Because this is an easy angle, you basically have access to a delicious combo of patience & dedication, along with revolutionary new ideas & positive change. However, the caveat with all trines is that it’s going so smoothly that you don’t consciously co-create. You don’t want to do that with these two because they directly affect both your reality and your freedom. If you had a hard time with the opposition in 2008-2010 or the square from 1999-2000, then look at this one as earned blessings and take advantage of creating order out of the chaos stirred up from those years. If you take advantage of this opportunity, then the next set of challenges (square in 2021) will go more smoothly and be more productive. If not, you may have heard me say ‘pay now or pay double later’ which would apply to this.

5/19 ~ Venus (love, art & beauty) ~oppose~ Jupiter (expansion):

This is a great energy for enjoying nature, really good food & drink, fun company and lots of laughter! This is a celebration type of energy, to be enjoyed but not to excess or to the neglect of your health or well-being. It’s very creative and activates the true Inner Artist within all of us. It’s also good to consider that you are at a MidPoint in a relationship or creative project that you started about 6-months ago; is it still viable? is the Story you’re telling still true? where’s the value? is it worth it? So whether you are an artist or not, this activation can facilitate an infinitely creative mood, and expand your work immensely. Activate your imagination, think big, have fun & laugh today, but tomorrow, plan to start moving in a new direction that is more authentic for you personally.

THE 13 WICCAN PRINCIPLES

SpellCaster
THE 13 WICCAN PRINCIPLES

1: We practice rites to attune ourselves with the natural rhythm of life forces marked by the phases of the Moon and the seasonal Quarters and Cross Quarters.

 
2: We recognize that our intelligence gives us a unique responsibility toward our environment. We seek to live in harmony with Nature, in ecological balance offering fulfillment and consciousness within an evolutionary concept.

 
3: We acknowledge a depth of power far greater than that apparent to the average person. Because it is far greater than ordinary it is sometimes called supernatural, but we see it as lying within that which is naturally potential to all.

 
4: We conceive of the Creative Power in the universe as manifesting through polarity ~as masculine and feminine~ and that this same Creative Power lies in all people, and functions through the interaction of the masculine and feminine. We value neither above the other, knowing each to be supportive to each other. We value sex as pleasure, as the symbol and embodiment of life, and as one of the sources of energies used in magickal practice and religious worship.

 
5: We recognize both outer worlds and inner, or psychological, worlds sometimes known as the Spiritual World, the Collective Unconscious, Inner Planes, etc. ~and we see in the interaction of these two dimensions the basis for paranormal phenomena and magickal exercises. We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment.

 
6: We do not recognize any authoritarian hierarchy, but do honor those who teach, respect those who share their greater knowledge and wisdom, and acknowledge those who have courageously given of themselves in leadership.

 
7: We see religion, magick, and wisdom in living as being united in the way one views the world and lives within it ~a world view and philosophy of life which we identify as Witchcraft~ The Wiccan Way.

 
8: Calling oneself “Witch” does not make a Witch, but neither does heredity itself, not the collecting of titles, degrees, and initiations. A Witch seeks to control the forces within her/himself that make life possible in order to live wisely and well without harm to others and in harmony with Nature.

 
9: We believe in the affirmation and fulfillment of life in a continuation of evolution and development of consciousness giving meaning to the Universe we know and our personal role within it.

 
10: Our only animosity towards Christianity, or towards any other religion or philosophy of life, is to the extent that its institutions have claimed to be “the only way”, and have sought to deny freedom to others and to surpress other ways of religious practice and belief.

 
11: As American {Or World-Wide!} Witches, we are not threatened by debates on the history of the Craft, the origins of various terms, the legitimacy of various aspects of different traditions. We are concerned with our present and our future.

 
12: We do not accept the concept of absolute evil, nor do we worship any entity known as Satan or the Devil, as defined by the Christian tradition. We do not seek power through the sufferings of others, nor accept that personal benefit can be derived only by denial to another.

 
13: We believe that we should seek within Nature that which is contributory to our health and well-being.

Tuesday & The Perfect Corresponding Spell for the Day

Walking the Dragon

Tuesday & The Perfect Corresponding Spell for the Day

 

Now that you are starting to get into the passionate, courageous, and daring qualities of Tuesday, here are a few more spells for you to experiment with. Don’t be afraid to adapt these spells to suit your needs. Add some tarot cards, herbs, scents, crystals, or essential oils to these Tuesday spells, and crank up the volume on your own witchery! As long as your intentions are honorable, I am sure they will work out beautifully.

 

Victory Through Strength Tarot Spell

 

This tarot spell may be set up simply or more elaborately; it is up to you. Don’t be afraid to make your magick personal and unique.

 

Either use the featured cards (Six of Wands, Five of Wands, and Strength) as your only props around a red candle or add the associated crystals for a Tuesday (ruby, bloodstone, stone, and garnet). Try draping the workspace with a red cloth or scarf. Consider working ing this spell at sunrise or at noon, when the sun is directly overhead and bright. I suggest gest setting the candle and its holder in the center of your workspace, then arranging the cards and other accessories around it.

 

Another good idea would be to scatter those flat-bottomed, red glass marbles on the work surface. (You know, those pretty glass gems that are so popular for wedding-reception reception table decorations?) You can pick up a bag of those at most arts and crafts stores for a few bucks. Find some iridescent ones; wouldn’t they look sharp? Use your imagination! How about holly leaves or red flower petals? Are you getting inspired yet? Good. Now psych yourself up and repeat the spell below three times:

 

The lady holds the lion within her arms

My strength comes from my soul and causes no harm

I hold the power to succeed time and time again

Honor and victory are mine, let the spell begin.

 

Meditate on the symbolism of the cards for a short time. Close the spell by saying:

 

For the good of all, causing harm to none

By fire and passion, this spell is done!

 

Let the candle burn until it goes out on its own. If you used stones in the spell, you may keep them with you for a few days in your purse or pocket to help reinforce the spell.

Your Daily Magickal Applications for Tuesday

Wiccan Creed

Your Daily Magickal Applications for Tuesday

 
Tuesday is the day associated with the planet Mars. In mythology, Mars was the Roman god of war. If you’re wondering how this day came to be named, it’s because to the Norse, Anglo-Saxon, and Germanic people, this day was Tiw’s day (Tuesday). Tuesday actually got its name from the Norse deity Tyr, Tiw, or Tiu, who was also a god of battles and courage. This deity was very similar to the Roman Mars, and the names of the days of the week became switched and substituted as the Germanic peoples replaced the older deities with their own gods. So the name was changed from the Latin Dies Martis (“Mars’ day”) to the old English Tiwesdaeg.

 

The Norse god Tiw, or Tyr, was known for his sense of justice, discipline, and integrity. This day’s planetary influence brings with it the aggression, bravery, and honor of soldiers, as well as the passion and strength of those of us who must fight for what we believe in.
