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



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.

Create a philter for courage and protection or handcraft your own Witch’s jar to remove negativity from your home. See what other Witch crafts you can conjure up with Tuesday’s magick. Create some kitchen magick on this Tuesday by whipping up a spicy stew-add in a few Mars-associated ingredients such as carrots, peppers, and garlic. Empower the stew for success, and then treat yourself and your family to a good, hearty meal. Try working with a little aromatherapy and burn some spicy or coffee-scented candles to increase your energy level.

Check the sky at night, and see if you can find the reddish planet Mars up in the heavens. Not sure where to look? Check an astronomy magazine or search the Web for more information. Become a magickal warrior and move forward in your life with strength, courage, and compassion. Embrace the side of yourself that loves a good challenge and that is passionate and daring! Banish fear, and face your future with strength and conviction. Believe in yourself and in your dreams, work hard, and you will win every time.

Tuesday Is Ruled By Mars

Tuesday is a Mars day, and just like the god of war, this is the time to tap into magicks to call for strength and courage. This day of the week is for rebels and warriors. If you are facing a challenge of any kind, need a boost to your courage, or want to enhance your passions, Tuesday is the day of the week for you. Some suggestions for Tuesday enchantments would include:

*Wearing the fiery colors associated with this day: scarlet, red, black, and orange. Don some of the more daring and bewitching colors of your wardrobe on Tuesdays and turn a few heads.

*Carrying a bloodstone in your pocket or wearing garnet-studded jewelry to reinforce your convictions

*Working with protective and fire-associated plants such as the snapdragon, thistle, and holly to boost your shields and bravery

*Burning spicy-scented energy-enhancing candles to add a little magical aromatherapy to your home

*Cooking up a hearty meal featuring carrots, peppers, and garlic (all Mars foods and spices) to empower yourself for victory and success


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.




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;
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.

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.
