The Witches Digest for Tuesday, November 7th

(Horoscopes & Daily Divination)

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast: November 5 – 11, 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 in to 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.

*NOTEThere 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: November 5 – 11, 2017

11/9 ~ Sun (core identity) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation): 

This is a healthy, positive, transformative energy. You will have access to energy that will help you change your current circumstance for the better and/or clear up an issue that has been challenging you for a while now. It’s great for purifying, cleaning & clearing your personal space, as well as organizing your life in general. You may have to examine the “big picture” to see where an adjustment, for the good of all involved, is necessary. If you’re not feeling up to working on outer issues, this also gives you the opportunity to do some introspective thinking and deep self-reflection. Superficial once-overs will not do, you must address the root cause for where you find yourSelf at this time in your life and decide if it is working for you or against you.

11/11 ~ 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.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of November 6th

Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

From the Astrology Room

With the sun and Jupiter still coursing through deceptive Scorpio, it’s not surprising that some of us are unsure if what we see is actually what we get.

Others are convinced they are about to reveal incredible truths, and still others that the intensity of their feeling world seems to be set for life. However, the illusions we cast around us are only that, and this week it’s also timely to not let your imagination take you for a very long ride away from another kind of reality – the tangible one.

 

ARIES

Does someone ‘love’ you because they can control you, or because you are you, separate, unique with your own perspective of the world? It’s time to shake off those tarnished dreams and remind yourself how special you are. Then someone else will realise too.

 

TAURUS

Sometimes you’re highly cautious about revealing your plans for the future. “If I don’t engage with others I won’t get hurt. If I keep my ideas to myself, I won’t upset anyone, nor myself.” But with the recent full moon in your love angle, at last you’re seeing that you do need to assert your needs, and make it clear what you want.

 

GEMINI

This week, there’s a sense that you’re trying too hard to be fair, diplomatic and logical about love, while you’re actually fuming inside. Of course, it’s easy to make it all seem like nothing very important on the surface.  But feeling edgy, risque and challenged is uncomfortable if you don’t listen to your heart. Time to do so.

 

CANCER

Take a chance to crusade for your campaign for passion, love or self-esteem.  Thanks to Jupiter, you may also feel extra vibrant and want to get on with life, rather than merely think about it.  So it’s hardly surprising that all this stuff about reflection and re-visioning, is the last thing you want. Time to tell others that you’re about to put ideas into action.

 

LEO

It’s taken a long time for you to make up your mind, but you’re realising how could you ever be submissive and ordered around by other people’s expectations? Let your partner or admirer know that you’re ready for anything, as long as anything happens. Get ready for the fantastic changes ahead.

 

VIRGO

Don’t get dogmatic and assume that your truth is the only one. Don’t say “if only I’d known, I could have avoided this situation’ or ‘if only you’d told me things would be different”.   Instead say, “I know now and will face this situation. If I change my beliefs, I can change the outcome.” You’re beginning to see which relationship road you truly want to travel down.

 

LIBRA

Time to be more rational and observe your emotional reactions, rather than be overwhelmed by them. And whether you feel angry with yourself because you’re jealous, or frustrated because you feel inadequate, the more creative you are with your own feelings, the more you’ll discover how to give out and receive real love.

 

SCORPIO

You’re still avoiding analysing your relationships in the hope they’ll just sort themselves out. And it’s hardly surprising this week, that you wax and wane, undecided if the one you’re with, or that unavailable person out there, is the right partner for you or not. But very soon, you will begin to see the answer.

 

SAGITTARIUS

Who can measure passion, who can deconstruct feelings when they’re yours, and yours alone?  So the artist in you will yearn for excitement, the scientist in you will want to measure the possibilities and not take chances. But it’s time to work both into your love life and enjoy a magical experiment.

 

CAPRICORN

With the sun’s influence you feel the hypnotic effect of longing for more and more of the same thing. When are you ever going to have enough love? But this week you reach the top of the love mountain. Don’t look back, just sideways at the view and a brand new direction which includes the kind of stability that suits you best.

 

AQUARIUS

The harmonious atmosphere you crave right now seems about as calm as a raging sea.  But by the end of the week, you can indulge in pure romance, so don’t feel guilty about your motivations and desire. You might have to make a few compromises, but just this once it’s worth keeping everyone happy, and that includes yourself.

 

PISCES

Don’t judge yourself, nor judge your partner for their inadequacies or different belief systems. If single, it won’t be long before you can take romantic advantage of someone, and if attached, reveal the truth about what you want for the future.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, November 7th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Through no fault of your own, other than a busy schedule, you seem to be out the loop professionally. It may be worth you paying for your own travel or even studying to catch up on all that you have missed out on.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Learn to relax and wait for the answers. You have been trying to push things before they are ready to move and all it has led to is a feeling of frustration for all concerned.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Obstacles are what we all too often see when we take our eyes off our goals. Know how far is too far to go when pushing others for favours today. This is a day to earn respect, not lose it.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
You will get from your life what you put into it. I know others have claimed you are lazy, but you have just been tired with the amount of mental pressure which has been on you of late.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
A jealous streak is evident in your chart, which could see you accusing close ones of things they haven’t done. Try to make a mental note of how far is too far to go, or you will only end up with apologies to make tomorrow.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Don’t allow others to dictate your dreams, instead try to focus on what you feel and want in your heart. Travel is well starred and is forecast to make your future more exciting than you had dreamed.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Be the centre of calm in the flow of life. You may not realise this, but you really are the gel that holds those around you together. Things you ask for today will be granted to you. Use this to your full advantage.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
We know you like to jump in at the deep end and we also know that you like to see how far you can push people. This month the stars show me you may have just met your match. Play fair. You’ll have to answer questions later.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
The dramas which have unfolded recently have made it hard for you to know who was in the right and who was in the wrong. Don’t make any decisions just yet. Time is on your side and will reveal all you need to know.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
There’s a hard compromise you face at the moment, between trying to please loved ones and trying to do what feels right in your heart. You may have to offend certain faces in order to do the right thing.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Don’t ask more of your close ones than they may be able to give. If you do push them, you may end up pushing them away. Fun flirtations make this a memorable and possibly life changing time for many of you.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
A slow pace in love ensures that you are able to build the secure base a sign such as yourself needs. Try to use the power of Mercury to convince the person concerned of the importance of this.

If You Were Born Today, November 7

You have a mysterious aura about you, although others sense that you are determined, opinionated, and strong nevertheless, which you are. You have a strong interest in politics or religion, but you don’t necessarily adhere to tradition. Your views are progressive and you think outside of the box. A conformist, you definitely are not! There is a dreamy side to you. You are a visionary who is especially sensitive to injustices. On a personal level, you often feel misunderstood. However, on some level, you enjoy being somewhat elusive or puzzling. Famous people born today: Billy Graham, Joni Mitchell, Albert Camus, Marie Curie, Jason London.

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!

Jupiter transits conjunct your Sun this year, expanding your opportunities and boosting your confidence. This transit brings more awareness of moral issues and long-term goals, as well as a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn. This is a feel-good transit that boosts your popularity. Optimism is with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

As well, transiting Neptune harmonizes with your Sun this year. A higher purpose to your life is what you seek, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced and that you’re often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. This aspect softens your disposition somewhat, as you tune into your imaginative and artistic side. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to “get away from it all” can be strong. A more sensitive—even mysterious—persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life. You will want to reserve time alone away from the hectic pace of life for reflection and meditation.

You can be feeling good about your work, obligations, and commitments, which are seen not as burdens, but rather as purposeful activities. Independent work is favored this year. You are more disciplined and efficient.

This is also an excellent period for opening up communications with others, as you are more sensitive than usual and more willing to listen. Getting your point across is easier, as it’s not only about what specific words you choose to communicate, you intuitively express the meaning and intention behind the words. You can effectively use words to soothe, heal, and teach this year. You are also more open to new ways of looking at problems, thus it’s considerably easier to find solutions.

There can be helpful interactions with superiors or with older or more experienced people during this period, and benefits can come as a result. There can be a choice to structure, limit, or simplify your life in a significant way that leads to major improvements in your life.

Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme

On business and financial levels, you’re best off if you develop and improve existing businesses than breaking entirely new ground. In fact, you’re in excellent shape for editing, refining, and overhauling your work and projects. Long-term alliances can be made this year. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.

This is an excellent period for enjoying new opportunities, experiences, and perspectives. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well, but you need to make extra time for downtime. Useful contacts can be made during this period.

 

2017 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.

2018 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, November 8th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
You’re finding it difficult to make sense of what did or didn’t happen over the last few days in your personal life. What you will know, is who you want to see more of and who you want to distance yourself from.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
It’s time you paid more attention to what is going on in your life, rather than the dramas that are affecting those around you. A forced change in your career turns out to be a blessing in disguise.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Don’t give in to what others want, but stand your ground. For a sign who is usually so well known for their independence, it would be far better for you to say what you want, than be pushed into what others tell you that you should be.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Close ones may not understand the decisions you make, but they will have to respect them if you stick to them. Your ruling planet the Moon, brings out your jealous streak. Don’t make accusations you have no proof of.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Lies you tell in business will come back on you. Sticking to truths is the key to you feeling good about your life and the decisions you make. The chance to go somewhere different should be accepted. A change of scenery works wonders.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
There’s been an awful lot for you to get through, but you’ve done an admirable job and you will continue to do so. The Sun brings out your need to contact someone from your past. Think why they’re in your past before you dial.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
There’s a feeling of relief in your stars. You work out what needs to be done to make your day to day life a happier place to be. Animals link to some interesting introductions and your options for fun increase tenfold.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Your feelings and wishes are written all over your face. You have had enough of sending mixed messages and now you want everyone to know that you will not accept anything but the best. This could see the departure of someone familiar.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
You have been given responsibilities you do not want and in the process you have been left feeling used and taken advantage of. Luckily Mars gives you back your voice and your about to reject what you know you don’t want.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Resist the temptation to speak for the sake of it. You are so much more aware of what and who works for you in life. It’s also time to cut loose from that face you know has been using you.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
A falling out with someone you care for left you with a sour taste in your mouth. You’re no longer willing to be accused of things you did not do. Rather than arguing, you break free and move on from negativity.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Home affairs are highlighted and you begin to realise that it’s not all about what other people want, you are important too. Wear what you know you feel good in today. You’ll soon see why.

Tarot Card of the Day

The Fool


Pamela Coleman-Smith’s artful rendition of The Fool in the Rider-Waite Tarot deck is often used to represent Tarot in general. Early classical versions of The Fool card, however, portray quite a different character — a person driven by base needs and urges, who has fallen into a state of poverty and deprivation.

In some earlier instances, The Fool is made out to be a carnival entertainer or a huckster. In others, he is portrayed as decrepit and vulnerable — as the cumulative result of his delusions and failures. Not until the 20th century do you see the popular Rider-Waite image of The Fool arise — that of an innocent soul before its fall into matter, untainted by contact with society and all its ills.

Modern decks usually borrow from the Rider-Waite imagery. Most Fool cards copy the bucolic mountainside scene, the butterfly, and the potential misplaced step that will send The Fool tumbling into the unknown. Don’t forget, though, that the earlier versions of this card represented already-fallen humanity, over-identified with the material plane of existence, and beginning a pilgrimage toward self-knowledge and, eventually, wisdom. The Fool reminds us to recognize the path of personal development within ourselves — and the stage upon that path where we find ourselves — in order to energize our movement toward deeper self-realization.

Love Tarot Card of the Day

The Tower


Hoping and wishing won’t make it so. Quick and decisive action does. The Tower represents permission to get things moving in high gear, in the right direction. Invest yourself wholeheartedly in your long-term relationship. Start with straight talk with your partner. The Tower is a wake-up call to signs previously ignored.

Strength


Your sex life gains some serious momentum today with the appearance of the Strength card.

If you’ve been waiting for the right time to try out some new moves, the Strength card urges you to act now! There may be some obstacles in your way, but you welcome any and all challenges. Anyone playing hard to get right now is like putty in your hands.

Your Daily Karmick Number for Tuesday, November 7th

You are beginning a new cycle of doing the same thing over again. The hamster wheel will wear out soon. Will you buy a new one and continue on the same path to nowhere, or finally bust out of the cage? If you stay put the scenery will not change. Neither will the food, your sleeping pattern, or sense of style, much less bigger and more obvious things. You still need to learn lessons from the previous cycle, so reflect on the past so that you can release negative karma and move into a brand new, positive cycle.

On Tuesday, November 7th, We Honor the Goddess Juno

Juno

Roman Goddess

Areas of Influence: Juno was the Goddess of marriage, pregnancy and childbirth.

She was the Queen of the Gods and part of the Capitoline triad that also included Minerva and Jupiter.

This Deity was an embodiment of the traditional female roles of wife and mother.

One of her titles was Lucino (meaning light) as she helped to bring children into the light of this world at birth. She was also said to set and strengthen a child’s bones.

She was also Goddess of conception, a Goddess to be called upon in labour and one who helped settle disagreements between spouses.

Juno protected the finances of the Roman people. In this role she was the patron Goddess of the royal mint.

Before she absorbed many of Hera’s characteristics several scholars suggest that she was a Maiden Goddess.

The Month of June was named after her and it was considered the most favourable month to get married in.

Her other claim to fame is that as an archetypal figure she appears in Shakespeare’s play The Tempest.

Each Roman woman was said to have her own Juno which represented her female spirit.

Origins and Genealogy: According to later Roman myths she was the sister and consort of Jupiter and the mother of Mars, Hebe and Vulcan.

Mars was conceived when the Goddess was imoregnated by a flower.

Strengths: Leadership and a loyal wife.

Weaknesses: Jealousy and vindictiveness.

 

Symbolism

This Roman Goddess had a more warlike nature than Hera and was often depicted in a goat skin coat that was favoured among Roman soldiers.

She was also able to throw lightning bolts like her husband Jupiter.

Sacred Birds: Geese and peacocks.

Sacred Plants: The wild fig tree.

Festivals: A special ceremony was dedicated to her in the home to celebrate the beginning of each lunar month.

Her main festival, the Matronalia was held on 1st March. On this day married woman asked their husbands to give them money to make offerings to the Goddess.

A smaller celebration known as the Nonae Caprotinae took place on 7th July.

Greek and Etruscan Equivalents: The Goddess Hera was the Greek equivalent to Juno.

Uni was the Etruscan Goddess who shared many similarities with this Deity.

 

Juno’s Archetypes

The Queen

In the positive aspect the Queen represents the regal feminine. Using her benevolent authority to protect others. This Archetype can signify the power of women who rule over anything from the office to the home environment.

The shadow aspect reflects the tendency to become arrogant, controlling and aggressive when challenged.

As Queen of the Roman pantheon Hera has power and authority. Like her Greek counterpart, Hera, she misuses her position when she feels threatened.

 

The Companion

This stereotype is loyal, tenacious and unselfish in their service to a more figure of authority. In this relationship she provides the with emotional and practical support to enable her partner to concentrate on his mission. This was long considered the traditional role of the wife.

The shadow Companion manifests as betrayal, breaking confidences and identity loss through constantly suppressing your own needs.

Despite her husbands numerous affairs Juno remained loyal to her husband.

 

How To Work With These Archetypes

The Queen:

The Queen asks whether you rule over your domain fairly, protecting every body’s rights and feelings.

Or do you need to look at patterns of trying to control others to protect your own emotional and personal position? If this is one of your patterns, you need to ask yourself what are you afraid of losing and where does that fear stem from ?

The Companion:

Do you have a long history of playing the loyal Companion to other people? Are you happy with this role or do you feel that the partnership is unequal and resent the fact that your needs are not being met? How do you express this resentment?

The shadow aspect of the Companion suggests you look at ways at achieving a better balance. Begin to rediscover who you are and what you want in life and allow time to follow your own interests.

Magickal Days of the Week – Tuesday

Named for the Norse god Tyr, who was a deity of heroism and combat, Tuesday is a very martial sort of day – color associations include bright red and oranges, as well as warrior-like metals such as iron and steel.

The ancient Romans called this day Martis, after the warrior god Mars – other deities associated with Tuesday include Ares, the Morrighan, and other gods of battle and glory. Red gemstones like rubies and garnets come into play on Tuesdays, as do herbs and plants such as thistles, holly, coneflowers and cacti – you’ll notice these are all sharp, prickly plants!

One of the interesting – and more than a little amusing – aspects of Tuesday magic is that in addition to war and conflict against your enemies, this is a day also associated with marriage. You can also use this day of the week for magical workings connected to protection and initiation. Use Tuesday to assert yourself, make a mark and stake your claims.

The Witches Guide to Tuesday

 

A god, goddess, or planet governs each day of the week. It is usually easy to spot the ruler of the day by its name. The word Tuesday, however, is not so easy, but if we look at the word in Spanish, Martes, we clearly see its connections to Mars.

Because Tuesday revolves around the energy of Mars, Tuesdays are good for business, mechanical things, buying and selling animals, hunting, beginning studies, gardening, sexual activities, and confrontation. This is a day for sex magick, energy, stamina, and health. As in the old saying, Tuesdays child is full of grace, is also good for success magick and defense against enemies.

Angels of Tuesday are Camael, Samael, Satael, Amabiel, Friagne, and Hyniel. When invoked, Camael takes the form of a leopard. In Druid mythology he is a god of war, which is why we see him associated with Mars. Camael is said to be a member of the “Magnificent Seven” in some circles. Camael is another “terminator” angel.

Samael walks both worlds as a magician and sorcerer. some see him as the angel of death, others as “the bright and poisonous one.” Many consider him more of a demon, and accuse him of being Satan. However, there is reference to the satans (plural) as enforcers of the law, a sort of angelic police, if you will. Supposedly, when Samael is around, dogs howl in the night. On one hand, he is the ruler of the fifth heaven and in charge of two million angels; on the other, he is the one who changed into a serpent and convinced Eve to partake of the forbidden fruit of knowledge.

Satael is an angel of air invoked in magic rites and is the presiding spirit of the planet Mars. Amabiel is another spirit of the planet Mars; however he spends his energy on issues of human sexuality. Friagne, also an angel of this day, is invoked from the east. He is a member of the fifth heaven. Hyniel also belongs to this day and is subject to the east wind.

On Tuesdays the hour of sunrise and every eight hours after that are also ruled by Mars, and that makes these times of the day doubly blessed. These four hours are the strongest ones to do ritual in. Check your local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac to determine your local sunrise.

Tuesday’s Witchery

Tuesday is the day to work any magick that falls in the category of increasing strength, courage, bravery, and passion. All of these intense emotions are linked to this day’s energies, and spells designed around these themes will have extra punch when performed on this magickal day.

So, let’s add a little passion and conviction into your life! Break out the daring red pieces of your wardrobe, and put a little pizzazz into your day. Work with Lilith, and see what she has to teach you about personal power and sexuality. Meditate onTiw/Tyr and Mars, and see what those ancient warrior gods will show you about new tactics, strategies, and claiming personal victories in your life. Practice conjuring up that astral weapon from the meditation and use it wisely for protection and for courage.

THE ANCIENT ART

Once upon a time, a long time ago, there were people who believed in laughter, joy and love. They believed in many deities, but the most important to them was their Great Mother Goddess. They believed in and lived with the powers of Nature. They reveled in the Wind, the Rain, the Snow and the Sunlight. They marveled at and revered the changing of the seasons and saw therein great excitement and wisdom to be gained. They knew that if they tended, cared for and loved the Earth, in return She would provide for, care for and love them. They saw that all around them the world was filled with Life, much as their own but in many different and wonderful forms. They felt the life of the flowers, plants and trees and respected them for that life essence. They looked about and observed all the many types of animals and saw that they were kindred to them and loved them. They felt and observed the great Love of the Goddess all about them and knew kinship with the Moon. They were practioners of The Old Religion, worshipers of The Great Mother.

 

Witch! The very word instantly invokes visions for each of us, visions which vary greatly from individual to individual. Many of these visions, however, are quite false, brought about by many centuries of severe persecutions, misrepresentations, prejudice and, in recent years, lack of knowledge. Witchcraft! What is it really?

 

Witchcraft is the oldest, most irrepressible religion in the world because it stimulates the intellect, promotes a simple, practical way of life and, most importantly, is emotionally satisfying. Its roots lie in the ancient Matriarchal systems of Goddess worship. A religion of Nature in which the primary deity is female (The Essence of Femininity, The Earth Mother, The Great Mother, etc.).

 

It was easy for the Wise Ones to look at the world around them and see the great importance of Feminine Principle. The female was, indeed, the one who bore the young, perhaps the most magickal of all events to ancient man. Then, she played by far the most important role in rearing the young, being totally responsible for feeding, for without her milk there was no life past birth. She was responsible for the teaching and early care of the young. In all youths the greatest comfort and nurturing love were connected with the mother. These revelations and experiences could hardly lead to any other choice than the total reverence and deification of the female.

 

Although The Great Mother is the most important deity, Witches do, generally, recognize many Goddesses and/or Gods and are, therefore, polytheistic. The tenets of Witchcraft are few but all-encompassing, for with three simple Universal Observationsall of life can be explained and understood:

1) Reincarnation – Mortality
2) Cause & Effect – Magick
3) Retribution – Morality

Reincarnation enlightens the Witch to the fact that, as we come

 

to this material world over and over in a series of learning periods, or lifetimes, we will eventually have to experience all things, be all things, understand all things. This creates a great tolerance for other viewpoints in the Witch.

 

Cause & Effect, and an understanding of it, allows the Witch to see what makes the world work and how to live most efficiently. It gives them a great advantage in that it explains the working of Magick.

 

Retribution shows the Witch, in graphic terms, that every thought one might have, every action one may take, is returned in like kind. This realization forms the basis of the Moral Code of the Witch.

 

The Patriarchal Societies which evolved in later times had no tolerance for the Goddess religions and systematically set out to destroy the material vestiges, kill or convert the adherents and wipe out all knowledge of them. They destroyed the temples and other places of worship, desecrated the sacred groves and magickal places, attempted to pervert the old deities, mutilated and totally suppressed sacred art, tore down libraries and burned
books, tortured and killed the practitioners of the Old Religions, demeaned, persecuted and oppressed women in general and passed strictly enforced laws which made theirs the State Religion and forbade all other viewpoints.

 

Despite the centuries of insidious persecution, deliberate destruction and perversions at the hands of the Christian Conspirators, Witchcraft has survived.

 

COMMON INQUIRIES

 

I’ve heard the terms ‘White Witch’ and ‘Black Witch’. Can you explain?

 

In this connotation, white is referring to Positive, Black is referring to Negative. A White Witch then is someone who tries to do Positive or Good things. Black Witch could be a term used to describe someone who deliberately does Negative or Bad things. A True Witch believes in the Law of Retribution and would never deliberately harm anyone or anything or participate in Negative or Destructive acts.

 

Is it possible for me to practice Witchcraft and remain a Christian?

 

No. The Christian Doctrine states, unequivocally, that Christians shall have no other Gods before the Christian God. Christian Doctrine says to believe in any other deities or to practice any other religion is not only evil but should be punished by death, specifically naming Witchcraft. The Christian Doctrine also denies Reincarnation and prescribes punishment for those who practice Magick.

Devil worship?

 

Witches do not worship the Devil. Witchcraft predates Christianity and does not incorporate a belief in the Christian Devil.

The Wise Ones did deify the Masculine Principle and quite often He was depicted as The Great Horned God; Pan, Cernunnos, the Great Stag, The Green Man. To the Traditional Witch, the Masculine Deity (the Goddess’ Consort) is very important, revered and loved. He is the perfect Father, the Lord Protector. The Horned God of the Witches is loving, kind and good.

Don’t men have difficulty with a supreme female deity? There are some groups which give equal status to the female and male deities.

Neo-Pagans are, by definition, people who attempt to live with the Old Country Ways in a new, modern day manner. And while, in this modern era, equal status for the deities may be popular, as it relates to Witchcraft it is historically incorrect.

Therefore, a group which does not recognize the Goddess as primary deity is not practicing The Ancient Art. Indeed, they generally, know very little about Witchcraft, despite their claims. Traditional Dualistic Witches do most emphatically believe that women and men are equal, but have no trouble relating to the Goddess. The Male Witch finds great comfort and solace in his Great Mother.

 

Do I have to join a Coven?

No. It is not necessary nor is it desirable for a great many people. Some people enjoy the support and companionship a Coven provides, others enjoy solitary worship. The Coven, which is an extremely close knit worship group, may not be possible for some because of location, family climate, availability, etc.

Why is Witchcraft secretive?

The horror of the ‘Burning Time’ is still very real to the Witch. The past persecutions were severe. Even so, in today’s more enlightened society the need for complete secrecy has lessened and many are able to share their beliefs openly. Very few, however, are willing to expose their very personal and private religious expressions to others who may not understand.

What do I have to do to become a Witch?

The answer to this question is very simple. To become a Witch one must follow the religion of Witchcraft. To do this one must believe in the Goddess as primary deity and follow the three basic tenets. How simple! How uncomplicated! How Pagan!
Everything else concerning witchcraft is simply minor details.

Details that vary from Aspect to Aspect, Coven to Coven and individual to individual. The details are relatively personal. They should not become more important than the basic tenets. If you do not understand, believe and practice Witchcraft, you are not a Witch. No one can make you a Witch. Reading about it can not make you a Witch. An Initiation can not make you a Witch. Saying you are a Witch, one thousand and fifty two times, can not make you a Witch.

 

In the search for your individual path beware of those who would take advantage of you. Do not fall prey to the unscrupulous charlatans who would swindle you in a monetary sense (mail-order courses, charges for teaching or initiations, vows of poverty, etc.), exploit you sexually or manipulate you for their own personal ego-trips.

 

 

The Charge of the God

Listen to the words of the Horned God, the Guardian of all
things wild and free, and Keeper of the Gates of Death,
whose Call all must answer:

 

I am the fire within your heart…
The yearning of your Soul.
I am the Hunter of Knowledge
and the Seeker of the Holy Quest
I – who stand in the darkness of light
am He whom you have called Death.
I – the Consort and Mate of Her we adore,
call forth to thee.
Heed my call beloved ones,
come unto me and learn the secrets of death and peace.
I am the corn at harvest
and the fruit on the trees.
I am He who leads you home.
Scourge and Flame,
Blade and Blood –
these are mine and gifts to thee.

 

Call unto me in the forest wild
and on hilltop bare
and seek me in the Darkness Bright.
I – who have been called;
Pan,
Herne,
Osiris ,
and Hades,
speak to thee in thy search.
Come dance and sing;
come live and smile,
for behold:

this is my worship.
You are my children and I am thy Father.
On swift night wings
it is I who lay you at the Mother’s feet
to be reborn and to return again.
Thou who thinks to seek me,
know that I am the untamed wind,
the fury of storm and passion in your Soul.
Seek me with pride and humility,
but seek me best with love and strength.
For this is my path,
and I love not the weak and fearful.
Hear my call on long Winter nights
and we shall stand together guarding Her Earth
as She sleeps.

The Moon is void very briefly, from 5:39 AM to 5:44 AM.
The Moon is waning and in its Full phase until 6:06 AM after which the Moon is waning and in its Waning Gibbous phase.
The Full Moon occurred on the 4th in the sign of Taurus and the Last Quarter Moon will occur on the 10th.
Venus enters Scorpio today (Venus transits Scorpio from November 7-December 1).

Moon in Cancer

 

The Moon is traveling through Cancer today. Beware of mood swings. Cook some soul food. Cuddle up with someone.

The restlessness of the Gemini Moon gives way to an instinctive need for peace and quiet. Feelings of belonging and safety are what motivate us under this influence. The Moon feels right at home in the sign of Cancer, as it rules the sign. This Moon position has much healing potential. Although insular by nature, our feelings run deep, making it an ideal time to get in touch with what motivates us.

The Moon in Cancer generally favors the following activities: Domestic activities, those that involve awareness of personal needs. Home decor, family get-togethers.

Daily Overview of Your Astronomy for Tuesday, November 7th

Early today, mental pressures or troubles can be unsettling as Mercury and Pluto form a semi-square. We should watch for obsessing over an issue that we can’t or shouldn’t control. The Moon continues its transit of Gemini until 5:40 AM EST, after which the Moon moves through the sign of comfort-seeking Cancer.

Venus enters Scorpio today, where it will transit until December 1st. Deeply passionate relations are the focus with Venus in Scorpio. Superficial flirtations and contacts do not satisfy now, as we yearn for “body and soul” contact with someone special that breaks the norms, is intense, and is unforgettable. This is a highly emotional and passionate position for Venus. We look for projects, pleasures, and relationships that consume us. Fears of being too vulnerable or of giving up our own power to others are strong. We’re good at handling money and resources during this cycle.

There can be disdain for routine today, or circumstances are such that our lives are too chaotic or scattered to be able to focus on our goals. We should watch for sudden abandonment of goals, projects, responsibilities, or commitments now. The Moon’s trine to Jupiter this afternoon is encouraging and generous, while the Moon-Mars square tonight can stimulate tension and impulsive reactions.

A void of course Moon occurs from 5:40 AM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Venus), until the Moon enters Cancer at 5:45 AM EST (an extremely brief VOC period).

The Sky This Week for November 7 to 12

Venus shines brilliantly, a variable star triples in brightness overnight, and much more in the sky this week.
By Richard Talcott

Tuesday, November 7

The variable star Algol in Perseus reaches minimum brightness around 10:56 p.m. EST, when it shines at magnitude 3.4. If you start tracking it this evening, you can watch it more than triple in brightness (to magnitude 2.1) by dawn. This eclipsing binary star runs through a cycle from minimum to maximum and back every 2.87 days. Algol remains visible all night, passing nearly overhead around midnight local time.

Wednesday, November 8

As if the earlier sunsets this week don’t put you in mind of winter, the midevening appearance of the season’s most conspicuous constellation surely will. Orion the Hunter rises in the eastern sky around 9 p.m. local time and appears halfway to the zenith in the southeast by midnight. Look for three 2nd-magnitude stars in a line that form the Hunter’s belt. The constellation’s brightest stars are ruddy Betelgeuse and blue-white Rigel.

Thursday, November 9

Mars stands out in the eastern sky before dawn this week. The magnitude 1.8 Red Planet rises three hours before the Sun and appears 15° high as twilight starts to paint the sky. It resides among the background stars of Virgo, and this morning it passes 1.8° south of 3rd-magnitude Gamma (γ) Virginis. Unfortunately, the view through a telescope proves disappointing — Mars spans just 4″ and shows no detail.

Friday, November 10

Last Quarter Moon arrives at 3:36 p.m. EST. It rises in the eastern sky around 11:30 p.m. local time and reaches its peak in the south around sunrise tomorrow morning, by which time it appears slightly less than half-lit. Throughout this period, our satellite resides among the background stars of western Leo the Lion.

Saturday, November 11

Although Jupiter passed on the far side of the Sun from our perspective in late October, it already is climbing into view before dawn. To find it, head outside about a half-hour before sunrise and locate dazzling Venus. This morning, Jupiter appears 1° directly below its sibling. The gas giant planet shines some two magnitudes fainter than Venus but still stands out through binoculars against the bright twilight. Two mornings from now, these planets pass within 0.3° of each other in the finest planetary conjunction of 2017.

Sunday, November 12

A lone bright star now hangs low in the south during early evening. First-magnitude Fomalhaut — often called “the Solitary One” — belongs to the constellation Piscis Austrinus the Southern Fish. From mid-northern latitudes, it climbs 20° above the horizon at its best. How solitary is Fomalhaut? The nearest 1st-magnitude star to it, Achernar at the southern end of Eridanus the River, lies some 40° away.

Tuesday 7th November

Today we are exactly in between the September Equinox and December’s Winter Solstice. It’s a moment of balance, a hinge in the year. And lovely Venus plunges into watery Scorpio today too. Altogether, a moment for reflection…

 

Good Tuesday Morning, My Dear Brothers & Sisters of the Craft! May The Goddess Bless You & Yours Today!

There are seldom times, I have to be alone and just think. The biggest thing that has always weighed on my mind and I am sure others, is how did we get created? How the planets formed? How did the universe formed? Better yet how did our own planet form? Unfortunately, due to events beyond our control, we do not have much written history.

The image that has recently came into my mind is one of beauty and most of all love. It is an image of the Divine at work. Now I want you to use your imaginations with me or for those of the Craft, visualize with me for a moment…..Imagine a dark, blank slate which happens to be the void. The Divine looked at the void and saw something was needed. She spread her hand across the void and lite it up with thousands upon thousands of beautiful stars. The stars were beautiful but yet there was still something missing. What She wondered?After all the beauty she had created among the stars, there was now a void in her heart. She decided she needed a companion to share the beauty she had created with her. The male form God she then created. She felt his companionship, his caring and his love. With those feelings stemming from Him, the Goddess decided these feelings should be shared but with who or what. With both of them agreeing, these feelings of love that they were experiencing should be share, the Goddess decided she would give birth to a new species. A species that would be part of them, experience the love and awe they felt. We would not only be their children but a very special species. A species formed out of their love, kindness and goodness, a part of the Divine.

The Goddess took her beautiful hand and from the Stars she had created, formed a small ball from them. She then proceeded to form from those very magickal stars an image in the likeness of the God. It was not right for the man figure created to be alone. Alone he could not know the happiness and love that the God and Goddess shared. She reached her long, slender fingers up to the heavens and gathered more stars. This time she formed a female figure from those stars.

With the male and female now being formed, the God and Goddess decided to create a very special place for them. A place they could call home, care for and nurture. This place was and is our planet. She gently lowered the beings to the planet. What wonders they held before them. They were thankful for the beautiful home that the God & Goddess had given them. No stipulations were given to them for these new beings on this new planet were made from the stars and were also made from the God and Goddess. Without a word being spoken they knew in their hearts what was to be done, what they were to teach their children and the laws to live by.

The laws that were never spoken but always were known where simple…Take care of your new home, care for each other, love each other and always remember my children, you are special. You are special because you come from the stars and the Universe. You are part of the God and Goddess. You will live out your days in peace and when your time is done on this planet, you will come home to us again. But only for a brief time, then you will be reborn or reincarnated again to carry the lessons you have previously learned forward into your new life. With each new reincarnation and with what you have learned from the past, you will make your home a better place.

But always remember one thing, my children, you are a part of the Divine. You come from the stars and you are the most precious thing on your new planet. Love each other, cherish each other and find the love and happiness that We have found with each other.

For our gift to you, our children, is peace, love, happiness and the most important of all, freewill. Use your gifts wisely, my children. Follow our example, never stray from it, for we have given you life. It is your life but chose wisely, children. Learn to use your gifts in all ways that honor us, your Divine Parents.
