Tarot Card of the Day for August 17th is Seven of Coins

Tarot Card of the Day

August 17th, 2018











The Seven of this suit is typically a paean to the humble laborer who is willing to show up every day and sweat in the sun for next season’s bounty. The traditional concept is cultivation, with an attitude that slow and steady wins the race, with faith in nature’s assistance. The protagonist of this card doesn’t make excuses, isn’t whimsical or moody, but is dedicated and sees the job through. Of course, it’s no good to count your chickens before they hatch, but there’s no question that the person who is vigilant over a project is more likely to get the desired result.

Someone who works with nature, cooperating with her ways, will waste less energy and time than the person who works against her. As a side meaning, we sometimes see this normally humble farmer in a moment of frenzy, betting the crop on a roll of the dice. This represents a moment of dementia, addiction or desperation which hopefully will not last long enough for the farmer to lose everything!

New Zodiac Signs: Ophiuchus

New Zodiac Signs: Ophiuchus

In the world of astronomy there is some shocking news from the Minnesota Planetarium Society which announced that they have discovered the moon’s gravitational pull on Earth and its affect on the alignment of  stars which has  pushed them by about a month.  What’s this mean for those that look to the stars and get a daily scoop on their horoscope to have an insight into their life?  It means the signs may be changing.  For example, when astrologers say that the sun is in Pisces, it really is not in Pisces.

When a person is born, they are born under a sign which is determined by the position of the sun on the day they enter the world.  With the current news, this means that everything we though we knew about our horoscope sign is no longer correct.  Since the inception of astrology it has had issues.  Ancient Babylonians had 13 constellations, but only wanted 12, so they threw out the snake holder, Ophiuchus.  During the Julius Caesar era, Libra entered the picture.  And, today Ophiuchus is now introduced.

According to the Minnesota Planetarium Society the real sign of the Zodiac should be as follow.  Take a  gulp and realize your personality just may take a turn!

New Zodiac Signs Dates:

Sagittarius:  Dec 17 to Jan 20

Yes, Ophiuchus is new.  So, what should you know about it?  That Sagittarians and Capricorns have a new zodiac sign.  And, there are some must know questions about this new sign.  Our new addition to the zodiac chart is a man wrestling a serpent, dividing the snake’s body in two parts.  It is the only of the zodiac signs that is linked to real men and shares similarities to Imhotep.  What is Imhotep you may ask?  Imhotep is a biblical Joseph and  a BCE Egyptian doctor of the 27th century . Ophiuchus is considered a healer of men and a doctor of medicine or science.  He seeks enlightenment and higher education.  And, is expected to gain much in life achieving a high position.  Our new friend is an interpreter of vivid premonitions and dreams and is envied by his peers and favored among authority figures and by his father.  A very nice addition to what was already a strong family.



If You Were Born Today, August 17th


If You Were Born Today, August 17

You are somewhat of a maverick. Although sensitive, you are not afraid to do your own thing! Personal magnetism and appeal are strong, although you can be quite pushy and manipulative at times when you want your way. You have good people skills when you need them, however, and you are adept at combining business and pleasure. It’s just that you are very charming and might get used to having things go your way as a result. Your main challenge in life is to put the past behind you and to avoid letting worries and fear rule your life. You are highly intuitive and imaginative. Very amorous, you live for the excitement of romance. You are very giving in love, and need to make sure you are met halfway or you could become resentful. Loyalty in a mate is an especially important quality for you. Famous people born today: Davy Crockett, Robert De Niro, Mae West, Sean Penn, Taissa Farmiga.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps to keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.

You have Jupiter transiting in harmony to your Sun from March 2019 forward. Under this influence, you have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially strong. It’s a favorable time to further your education, travel, or otherwise expand your personal horizons. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.

There’s the strong potential of a great balance between work and play this year. You have a stronger focus on, and dedication to, work in the period ahead. You can make significant headway in specific areas this year, and you are likely to feel a strong sense of direction and purpose. Your timing is good, and you’re likely to make strong decisions related to work or long-term projects.

You are very likely to attract loving relationships and/or new warm social contacts into your life. Your popularity increases and efforts to smooth over challenges in partnerships are more likely to succeed. This is an excellent influence for negotiations, marriage, and business partnership.

This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance. In fact, they may see the wisdom in your ways more clearly.

You are especially creative and expressive during this period, and you succeed most in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining. Personal magnetism is excellent at this time. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in the pursuit of a common goal.

Energy fluctuates this year, however. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

You might also watch for a tendency to overstate and to neglect important details when making plans. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none if you’re not careful! You are likely to have increased opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences.

Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the greater good this year.

You’re feeling pleasantly competitive this year, but you also do very well in cooperative settings. Your creativity is stimulated in addition to your excitability and your need for freedom. It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you. In certain areas of your life, you’re inclined to rock the boat this year so that you can break free from a limiting situation. Be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. Personal magnetism is strong.


2018 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

2019 will be 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.

Spiral Timespace – Beacons of Light (August 2018)

Spiral Timespace – Beacons of Light (August 2018)

A video version of this channeling is available here.

NOTICE: The following channels were given live on the VirtualLight Broadcast and can be heard as they were originally recorded. Below is an edited version of the same channel designed for print. These were edited with the group’s oversight and approval. I hope you enjoy them. Steve Rother

Greetings, dear ones.

I am the Keeper of Time. There was a moment just now, where we had to decide who was coming in and I stepped forward as this is my area of expertise. Sometimes we come in as the collective as well, but I am the Keeper of Time and I’ve come in this day to talk to you about time. There are so many things happening on your planet now. We’d like to start to make you aware so that you can see what is taking place, rather than be all wrapped up in chaos. This type of energy can literally take you away from what you’re working on, why you came there. It’s more important that you re-member who you are and the seeds that you came to plant on Earth. The timing is critical, so let’s speak for just a moment about time. I will keep it very basic so that you’ll understand the concepts of what I’m talking about.

The Illusion of Linear Time

Very simple. In the first collective dimension, you are all in unity. There is no separation, so there is no need for time. Time marks the illusion of the game. It’s created by the left side of your brain because the left side of the brain does nothing more than mark time. It takes all your experiences and everything you perceive then puts it in a little box with a date on it, in effect a timestamp. That’s how you integrate and live your lives through this linear time of past, present, and future. Well, as you may know, the past is just memory. We can tell you that because many of you have changed those memories even consciously, to find yourself free of many of the restrictions of your past. We’ve even given you that modality to work with, because it’s very appropriate that you step out of the restrictions caused by your past.

The future is a dream. It’s a hope, a possibility, but it’s not real. Neither is the past, which is very difficult for many of you to understand. You want to see a perfect place where you can find your perfect truths. Yet as you’re starting to realize, truth is somewhat subjective, especially in these times. That is the energy that you’re all stretching into, playing with, trying out, seeing what works for you in the highest state of everything that you are right now in the fifth dimension. So, let’s talk about that process. You’ve got past, present, and future. Of those three, there’s only one that’s real and that is the now moment.

Many of you meditate. Many of you do prayer, yoga and mindfulness exercises to clear your mind. All of that is placing you into the now moment, the only one of the three aspects that is real. If you wish to go into the past, you must do it from the now moment. If you wish to project into the future, you must do it from the now moment. Now, you typically tend to hide your difficulties in your past, while projecting your hopes and dreams into the future. Think about it for just a moment. Take a breath with me, let your eyes close for just a moment, and shift your energy about three weeks into the future.  Can you feel that energy? Take an energy snapshot of what that is. Open your eyes, come back into the now moment and take a deep cleansing breath. Good. Now once again, close your eyes. Let us take you three weeks into your past.  How does that feel?  Which one felt better? Open your eyes again, dear ones. That is exactly what we’re talking about.

Fear Can Only Live in the Future

It might also be helpful to know that fear only lives in the future. You’re not afraid in this moment, you’re only afraid of what may happen next. It’s not possible to project fear into the now moment. You may be angry or upset, but one cannot hold fear if they are anchored in the now moment. In truth, fear is a projection that can only live in the future. So, keep that in mind, dear ones.

Likewise, you’re not afraid of your past. It’s already happened. One may not like their past, but the only way they can sustain fear is to be afraid that one may repeat the experience in the future.  You’re not really afraid of the present moment because you’re safe here, right now. No matter what you’re experiencing, even if you are in pain, feel safe right now. If you find yourself projecting, it means you have stepped out of the now moment.

That is exactly one of the first steps that we teach. To come back into the now moment and know that no matter what happens in the future, you are safe right now.  You can breathe. In fact, much of our work with you is aimed at helping ground you into that now moment at every opportunity. This brings you the highest potentials of experiencing all of life. So that’s an important piece of the triad that three-dimensional time is divided into.

You Are God in the First Dimension = Unity or No Time

Now let’s look at the other dimensions. When we talk about the first collective dimension, this is what you actually call God. When you are Home, dear ones, you’re not separate. You have individual personalities, yes, but you’re not separate. You’re all a part of each other. Collectively you are God. It may be difficult to understand but each of you carries the whole of God within you, yet you express only a specific personality. That is what we call core personality. The same way that your forefinger has a personality quite different than that of your thumb. But they are connected and all a part of the same hand and body.  If your forefinger wants to connect with your thumb, all they do is think about it and it happens. The thumb instantly shows up. Your forefinger begins resonating with the signature vibration of your thumb and they come together as if being magnetically attracted.  So it is with anyone you think about when you’re Home.  Dear ones, there are no secrets at home. Because you are all a part of each other, it’s not possible to keep secrets from each other, nor would you.

The Perspective of Spirit

When you are Home the negative experiences that you had while you were on Earth, or in any other game, is shared with the collective as a proud badge. It’s viewed quite differently than the way you look upon it on Earth because you superseded it in some way. You’ve moved past it, which gave you a strength and an understanding that you shared with every other part of all that is. In the first dimension, there is no time because there is no separation. At Home in the first dimension, everything is in the now moment. Since there is no time and no separation, the past, present and future are all together as one.

The Second Dimension = Folded Time

The second dimension is a place that you traveled through.  You did not stay there, but you had to go through the second dimension to land in the third. In the second dimension you gained polarity, duality. It was necessary for you to have the experience of pretending that you are separate from the whole.  You see things as up, down, good, bad, right, or wrong, all the opposites that gave you contrast.  In the second-dimension time is folded, providing contrast to your separation game. Folded time is what happens when you take the now moment and give it contrast. This is where you start the marking of time. It’s only two dimensions, so it’s either the now moment or other than the now moment. In the second dimension you have second dimension time, so you start to experience the division of yourself from the whole. That’s when you are imprinted with this duality that you carry.  You even carry representations of it in your own physical being. You have two eyes, two arms, two legs, and possess many of those representations of the whole in that energy.

Third Dimension = Linear Time

Now you land in the third dimension, which you have been since the family of E grounded you on Earth. In the third dimension you have three dimensions of time. With linear time and in that place, you get the illusion that there is a past, present, and future for the first time. Not only can you experience the now moment, which you could also experience in the second dimension, but you can also remember your past and project into your future. It’s almost as if you have now mastered time.

With that mastery, you are having a full experience in a game of pretending to be separate on Earth. Your spirit is having a variety of experiences in the game. When your life is at an end, you will bring all those experiences Home. Then you have an opportunity to evaluate which ones you are finished with and which you wish to bring into your next lifetime. Then at some point you will share all your experiences with every other parts of God. This is what we refer to as being Home; everyone learns from what you call your mistakes.

We also tell you there is quite a joke about that at Home, dear ones. Let’s say that during your incarnation you had a great enemy. You simply are completely at odds with this person no matter what you try. You cannot even be in the same room or in the same energy with them at all.  When you get Home,you come across each other and slap each other on the back saying, “Oh, wasn’t that wonderful? We couldn’t remember the contract we made. Thank you for playing that part with me, it helped me to re-examine myself.  It helped me to step forward and learn.” Strangely enough, these experiences of fear and fear-based negative emotions are of great interest to the other parts of God. Because at Home those things don’t exist. So, this is an opportunity to learn from the entire experience in all eleven dimensions of time space. God is infinite, so God can do anything except see himself/herself. That is the reason for these games of pretending to be separate in the first place.

So, here you are in the third dimension of what we call collective dimensionality. The collective dimensions are the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth dimensions of time-space. Some time ago humanity began to move the entire game into higher dimensions. This is the intent of all games everywhere, even though none have accomplished this until now.

The Fourth Dimension = Circular Time

You may be aware that roughly 40 years ago humanity started moving very gently into the fourth dimension, which has different attributes. You started to see things that you could not see before. You started to have perceptions you did not have before. You’ve seen what’s happened on the planet. Even 40 years ago, there was a handful of people that could bring in spirits from Home and ground that light. In the beginning of humanity there were relatively few who could channel spirit. Today there are literally hundreds of thousands of these people that you call channels on your planet, all offering a slightly different voice. We tell you many of them are not even aware that they are channels.

Albert Einstein was a channel, as was Nikola Tesla. Beethoven, Picasso, Copernicus, Davinci and more, all brought in channels they were given even in the face of resistance of those who resisted change.  There are many beings on this planet who are given information and learn to trust it, to bring it through and to express it even in the face of those who do not wish to hear it. Those channels were somewhat few and far between even 40 years ago. Today that is opening greatly. That has a lot to do with the fact that you have started to move through the fourth dimension, most of which happened 35 to 40 years ago.

The fourth dimension is not a place to live in, but rather a place to move through to get imprints. It begins the process of rapid change, which has now led to a backlash of conservatism showing up globally. In the fourth dimension you have an interesting arrangement of time. Only a short time ago many of your teachers started talking about time being circular, and in the fourth dimension time is experienced that way. It can now be perceived as a circle. How does that work? It’s very simple.

If you take any one point of the circle you have an opportunity to experience something in your life. In circular time you imprint the circle with an experience. If you are complete with the experience and have mastered it, it leaves the circle. If not, that same experience will return in a different form as the circle of time revolves. Whether you are successful at it or not really doesn’t matter. It’s not about judgment and has nothing to do with good, bad, right or wrong. Again, in the fourth dimension, you can start losing that duality. However, it is very hard to do because you’ve always tried to find your truth, rules, life, and laws. You’ve tried to write down your truths specifically so that you could turn around and teach them to those that followed behind you. Yet here you’re starting to understand that there really is no right or wrong. In that sense, the fourth dimension has a different perception entirely. Some still hang onto the old third dimensional realities,while many beings have intentionally not stepped into the fourth dimension. Others feel as if they have been pushed into something they did not choose.

Humans Resist Change

Some of the resistance has to do with the great fear caused by change. Many even revolted against change, holding their old truths even when all the evidence shows otherwise.  Unfortunately, your news is filled with this daily, every place you look. In the fourth dimension, time is now a circle and that also means that you can see that everything is repeated. We’ve taken this linear time and wrapped it into a circle. If you are on one spot on the timeline and are complete with an experience, then it tends to go away. If there is something residual within your being that is not clear or settled, being in circular time you will repeat the experience again. It also means that you can go back into your history and clean up many of those patterns that stay in your lives repeatedly. Circular time in the fourth dimension is something you all have the opportunity to be imprinted with.

Fifth Dimension = Spiral Time

Most of you watching and reading this have clearly gone through that. You’ve landed in the fifth dimension and you’re trying to sort this out, trying to make it work. Well, in the fifth-dimension time is both the line and the circle. It is a spiral and in spiral time things are quite different. Oh, you’re so accustomed to living in the third dimension. Even your own brain works in a linear fashion; one thought at a time. When you have spiral time, no matter where you are on the timeline you can look across to see something else. You can take shortcuts to you clear things up in your past more easily. By jumping sideways, you will notice opportunities which you’ve never seen before. You can even travel in time. Particularly with those of you watching and reading this right now, almost 90 percent of you travels in time. You’ve come back to be here at this moment. Not only to observe and watch but to make a difference, bring your energy and insights. Now that you are here, do you remember them?  No, not always in your head, but you remember them in your heart. That is the key to where you’re going, spiral time and thought. Spiral living now blends the energy of the third and fourth dimensions together, to bring you this beautiful forward movement with a new perspective.

Experiences still repeat themselves, as it does in circular time. You still have opportunities to clear things that you had not cleared before. However, it becomes easier because you can turn it around in the spiral and see what you did the last time you were there. That allows you to also clear many things, by going back and forth in a whole different way. These are the elements we will be working as we move you to the morphogenic bodies, taking you to the next step of your existence here on planet Earth. This is for those of you who wish to stay and watch some of the beautiful things that are going to take place. Those who want to be a part of one of the greatest changes that have ever taken place anywhere.

For some time now, we’ve been talking about that all eyes are on planet Earth. It is much more than that. You’re opening the door to create an entirely new light in a new way, and this never been done before on this level. You can ground your light and make a difference here right now in the spiral of time. The next time this comes around to the same spot on the spiral you’ll look back and say, “I know that I’ve worked with that, I remember this.” You will know exactly what’s coming, thus the fear will be greatly reduced.

You will have the opportunity to take it in stride, to prepare yourself and even anticipate with joy every moment of the future.  When spiral time and thought is mastered, fear has no place to hide. And when fear no longer exists, you cannot be manipulated. You start to become part of the whole, even though you are in the fifth dimension and you start reconnecting to the hearts around you. It is very similar to what you did in the days of Lemuria. It is coming back, dear ones, the open hearts of Earth are in place. Now we will see how you work with it. We welcome you to this place on Earth right at this moment. Your space has been reserved, you’re now sitting in the chair and main feature is about to start. Know in every part of yourself that you are here on purpose with a perfect answer, as you move through spiral timespace. Enjoy the ride, dear ones, I am the Keeper of Time.



Greetings from Home, dear ones.

I am the Scientist of the Heart and I come today to share more with you about the spiral timespace aspect. As the Keeper of Time mentioned, spiral time offers you different perspectives and various points of perception. Because of that, you can jump from one level to the next.  That’s not possible with linear time or even with circular time. As you start uncovering spiral timespace, you’re going to find that new things are possible. It isn’t only happening with those at the top echelon of evolution, but with everyone because the collective has now reached the fifth dimension. Of course, most people have no clue about that. Although they can feel something’s different, they still wake up and put on their third dimensional selves. They follow the third dimensional rules, which doesn’t always work the same way now. In spiral timespace, everyone is starting to see things differently. So, was spiral timespace always there? Yes, it’s not timespace that has changed here, dear ones, it’s humans that have changed. The spirits pretending to humans have now reached a level of vibration where you can perceive the spiral timespace that was always there.

With this new perception, you may begin stepping out of the density of the game, you’ll be changing your own abilities within your physical body. Over time, you’ll be losing density. Over the next 40 years there is a whole and entire transition that will take place amongst all humans that choose to participate. You’re still the planet of free choice, so there will be quite a few who choose not to do that for one reason or the other. However, those of you who wish to will be moving into higher vibrational bodies. You will extend your life substantially and you also won’t have the density. As the Earth goes through her changes, you’ll be in a different position to observe and play that new game that’s forming on planet Earth right now.  These are all taking place now, then over the next 10 years or so there will be the opportunity to move into what we have termed the morphogenic body. That is the first stage of this evolutionary process. It includes understanding spiral timespace, spiral thought, living in the spiral, how to best make use of that. There’s also an interesting process occurring that we wish to tell everybody about so that you can be forewarned: you’re not the only one experiencing spiral timespace. There are people and business who have been on watch for this sort of thing, so they would be able to use it for their self-advancing purposes.

Watch for the Scams

What happens is that you can see forward and backwards much better than you could before. There are many beings, dear ones, who wish to use this for their own advancement and purposes. As a result, right now on planet Earth you have more of what you would call scams going on than ever before. What do we mean by a scam? It could be something you receive in your email that states Microsoft is trying to reach you because you have a virus on your computer. Or perhaps someone calls you on the phone and tells you the IRS is trying to contact you, so you need to call this phone number to avoid being prosecuted. There are all kinds of things that are taking place on this planet, like never before. Please be careful, dear ones, and be on the lookout for these as spiral timespace makes it easier to deceive.

Many things are taking place because you don’t have control of the Internet the way you once did. That may be changing at some point, too. The people who introduced a world wide web are also working on a new level that works through blockchain and cannot be controlled in the ways even your Internet can be today. Spiral thought is also being used by those who wish to motivate or control you. All we ask is that you simply become aware of the now moment. How does your heart feel right in this very moment? That will keep you safe from all those that wish to use spiral timespace and spiral processes to influence you. You are experiencing more happening on this planet than ever before. For instance, people who often lie and then repeat their lies over again until they are believed are using spiral time.

Those Intentionally Out of Integrity

In very short time, humans will evolve to the point at which they will not tolerate the lies anymore. They simply will demand that people become more integrated. Integrity plays a huge role in this. Even as you move out of circular time into spiral timespace, those who are out of integrity will rise to the surface. It’s an interesting process. We’ve mentioned this before when we channeled the book Spiritual Psychology through the Keeper. Those who are out of integrity tend to put themselves in places where everyone can see them. You love to watch them, some are even what you call actors. But they’re not the people that they’re pretending to be. They are out of integrity intentionally and you love to watch them as they do that. You will put them in places where you can see them all the time. Not that they’re bad people, but they’re acting. You love to watch it, which is fascinating to us. You even judge them on how well they act then give awards for the best acting. We find this absolutely fascinating to watch. However, in spiral timespace that can be used against you, especially in the beginning. So, we’re asking you all to become more aware. Be a little bit skeptical, watch everything. Take it all in. Don’t miss out on or turn your back on anything, because life is much too short for that. We simply ask you to become more aware, even a little wiser, to recognize that spiral timespace is here. It’s different and there are even people who will start to use it against you.

Become aware of what you call the scams on your planet, for they are growing in numbers and intensity.That the middle classes in many places throughout the world has not seen advances in their income in a very long time propagates many of these scams. People are reaching out to try and bring in money in whatever ways that they can. Please do not judge them but be aware of them, and do not feed them by your ignorance.

There are no bad people. They are humans just like you, some of them are scared and others are greedy. Some of them are simply looking for shortcuts. In spiral timespace it’s easier to find those shortcuts than ever before. So, this is a little bit of a cautionary tale that we’re sharing. Be aware of that as you step to this next level, there will be many of those who wish to get their hands in your pocket or motivate you to do things out of fear. Be cautious, stay aware and be in the light. It’s my greatest honor to bring this to you at a point in your evolution where you can hear it. You are doing outstanding things on your planet and we are so incredibly proud of each one of you, so keep up the good work. As the Time Keeper would say, well done, dear ones. Treat each other with respect, nurture one another and play well together.

I am the scientist of the heart and I wish you all espavo.

Thoughts from your Hostess of Light – August 2018

Thoughts from your Hostess of Light – August 2018

Thank you Jesus we got thru these last 3 eclipses. These July & August eclipses have been affecting me for 2 years, I can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Mercury goes direct on my birthday 8/19 and the crowd cheers!

Most of you are aware of the mama orca whale that carried her deceased baby for 17 days almost starving herself to death. She finally let go thankfully, but really can you ever let go? During my 8:8 workshop in Tennessee, we worked with the Elohim of the whales (A-Qua-la) and dolphins via sound and soul we were able to connect with the mama whale, as a pod of sister whales. We each fed her inter-dimensionally, feeding her soul, as well as her body. Giving her manna she could digest easily since she could not bear to eat anything, she just wanted to die. The meditation felt so real to everyone, we really felt she had taken food from us, some rubbing her tongue to encourage feeding. Yesterday this beautiful lady of the sea swam thru my living room showing her underbelly as big as a submarine, demanding my undivided attention. I brought thru these channeled words for all of us that hold the magic of the ocean in our hearts.

Talequah speaks (Mama Whale)…

My sisters of the sea that swim through time with basketfuls of love that fed my heart, as one that leaves their babe adrift a river knowing that the babes Future is grander than their past. When you offered me your spiritual food coming from your heart of gold I drank from it like a thirsty sponge that had washed up on shore and dried out as a desert.

You came to me as an island of light that showed me hope shining in the background of a dark sky. You came to me in a form that I could receive in my sadness. For none of my brothers or sisters of the ocean could assist with my grief but you my pod of Sirian sister whales came in a form that absorbed into my soul helping to lift me from the heaviness of my heart And the sinking of my soul. I looked at your Shining Light and remembered my home in the Stars remembered that we are all Sirian of nature, all whales. I Remembered that births were centuries apart in times of star dust old. I cherish the time that I had with my child.

The funerary March swam through the hearts of all that were human allowing them to remember the death of a child that they too have carried through time and space. Each one of you gave of yourself so fully and completely it filled my heart with bliss and the soul of my baby swam about me with Delight. For I saw her enjoying her elongated time in a very small wee Earth incarnation as she flitted about spiritually enjoying the feeling of what Earth had to offer.

She comes as a reminder to all of Earth that life is Fleeting and Precious and Beautiful and filled with love. I received your gift of love and living Manna as you fed me spiritually in a place, a dimension of time and heart that I could receive. It is you that breathed the life back into me!! I swim over your hearts and your life showing you our connection, showing you my underbelly, where my motherhood is still upturned because I have not cycled and released in my body yet. Depression is not just for humans as you sea!

I show you the vulnerability of all species and how they are interconnected Heart to Heart and never shall it be any other way. You are my sisters of the sea you are my pod from the Stars and we shall always be one in our hearts, we are joined forever. It is you that sent out the Ripple of light that touched all of planet Earth.  As they watched me, God watched them! The love I have for you is deeper than any ocean on earth and I wanted you to know that your sister of the stars and the seas, Talequah

Moon in Scorpio

Moon in Scorpio


Intensity is what the Moon in Scorpio is all about. Whether it’s passion, elation, sorrow, or desire, emotions are felt on a deeply personal level. We are motivated by the desire to get to the bottom of things, and we instinctively read between the lines. Superficiality won’t work for us now. The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power, and it’s an excellent time to rid ourselves of old fears and limiting habits. It can be an intimate and passionate time. Avoid manipulative tactics, brooding, and suspicion.

The Moon in Scorpio generally favors the following activities: Taxes, accounting, intimacy issues, psychological examinations, research, self-examination, getting rid of old things.

The Witches Magickal Journal for Friday, August 17th

The Witches Magickal Journal for Friday, August 17th

Witchcraft is not evil. At least not any more than lighting a votive candle, praying for a sick friend, or carrying a lucky charm is. However, there are some who do view witchcraft as evil. This is only because organized religion (primarily the Christian church) has conditioned them to fear anything which strays from their narrow condemning view. After all, if you have the ability to fend for yourself, solve your own problems, and choose your own method of spiritual expression, why would you need the confined structure of a church?

Friday: The day of beauty


Frigg was the Norse goddess of beauty, love, household, fertility and motherhood. She was Odin’s wife. She wonderfully balances out the dreadfulness of all the masculine gods sitting around our week table.

Derived from Latin Dies Veneris, Friday is viernes in Spanish, vendredi in French and venerdi in Italian. The day belongs to Venus, the Roman goddess of beauty, love and fertility..

Today is Friday, August 17


Friday is the day of Venus. It takes it name from Frigg, the Goddess of love and transformation. She rules the spiritual side of a person that manifests in the physical. Because of this, Friday is often thought of as dangerously unpredictable. This is expressed in an old East Anglian adage:


Friday’s day will have its trick
The fairest or foulest day of the week.


Deity: Frigg


Zodiac Sign: Taurus/Libra


Planet: Venus

Sunflower Story

As a Leonian day, August 17’s “planetary” ruler is the sun, with which many Gods have been identified, including Helios. A tale told by the ancient Greeks about this golden deity concerns the nymph Clytia (or Clytie), who feel in love with Helios, but whose passion was not returned. Jealous of his affair with Leucothoe, a Babylonian princess, Clytia told her strict father of it, whereupon he buried his daughter alive. As for Clytia, she eventually wasted away gazing at Helios, whereupon she was transformed into a sunflower, which still follows the movement of the sun with its head.


A Sun-loving Flower


Place a sunflower on your altar, both to concentrate your thoughts on the Sun and as a reminder of the destruction inherent in burning passion. When they have ripened, harvest the seeds. Remove the tough cases to find a delicious, nutritious snack.

On Friday, August 17th, We Celebrate ….

Festival of Diana (Rome)


Themes: Fertility, Children, Providence, Abundance, Harvest


Symbols: Moon, Water, Forest Items, Sun


About Diana. This Roman Godddess embodies the moon’s fertility and watery aspects, along with the sun’s protective and nurturing power over the forests and its creatures. On this day she was celebrated in Rome and she will be remembered in our hearts as the huntress who helps us capture the spiritual food we need.


To Do Today: Starting on August 13, the Romans had a weeklong festival for Diana, praying to her for the harvest’s bounty, and to turn damaging storms away. The traditional place to leave an offering of fruit or vines for her is in the forest, or at a crossroads. As you do, if any stone or leaf catches your eye, pick it up and carry it as a charm that will keep Diana’s power with you that entire day. Come night, release the gift to flowing water or back to the earth with a prayer of thanks and a wish for one of Diana’s attributes that you wish to develop in your life.


It is also customary to light some fire source to honor her on August 15 or anytime during the festivities. Afterward, to generate this goddess’s physical or figurative fertility within you, follow Roman convention and wash your hair with specially prepared water (water to which just a little milke is addes so that it looks white, like the moon). If you have children, doing this for them incurs Diana’s protection over their lives.

Magickal Days of the Week – Friday


Friday falls at the end of the work week for many of us, and that means we get a chance to relax for a little bit! Mark your Fridays with colors like pink and aqua, and metals such as copper. This is a day ruled by the planet Venus, so it should be no surprise that Venus and Aphrodite – goddesses of love and beauty – are associated with Fridays. This is a day named for the Norse goddess Freyja, so be sure to take a moment to honor her as well.

Gemstones associated with Friday include coral, emerald and rose quartz, and plants like strawberries, apple blossoms and feverfew are also related. This is a good day to do spellwork associated with family life and fertility, sexuality, harmony, friendship, growth. Take advantage of Friday’s correspondences and plant a seed, make something grow, and enjoy your blessings

*Note: There are a lot of disputes as to the origins of the word Friday, because there is still a great deal of discussion as to whether it was named for Freyja or Frigga, and whether they were the same deity or two separate ones. Some scholars believe that while they may have eventually become two distinctly different goddesses, they could have had their origins in a single, common Proto-Germanic deity.

Friday–The Day of Freya


In the stories of the gods and goddesses of the Angles and Saxons we find two goddesses, Frigga, the wife of Odin and queen of the gods, and Freya, the Goddess of Love. Some people think that Friday was named after Frigga, and others that it was Freya’s day. Since very similar stories are told of each of them, it is quite probable that they were really the same person. The Roman name for the day was Dies Veneris, the day of Venus, who, it will be remembered, was the Goddess of Love, and so corresponded to Freya. The modern French name is taken from the Latin and is vendredi.


Frigga was the Goddess of the Clouds, and, when she was not with her husband Odin, spent her time in spinning clouds. Her spinning-wheel was studded with jewels, and at night could be seen in the sky as the constellation to which the Romans gave the name of Orion’s Belt, as we have seen in the story of Orion.


Frigga was also the Goddess of Spring, and as such was known as Eastre, whom we have already mentioned as giving us the word Easter.


Freya, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, like the Venus of the Romans, received a great welcome when she came to the home of the gods, and was given a special kingdom called Folk Meadow, where was a vast hall known as the Hall of Many Seats. Here she received half of those slain in battle, the other half being entertained by Odin, as we have seen.


Freya is depicted as having blue eyes and golden hair, and often as wearing a robe of feathers, which enabled her to fly through the air like a bird.

The goddess is said to have married Odur, who was probably Odin under another name. Odur once had occasion to leave Freya and travel over the world, and the goddess was broken-hearted at his departure. Her tears fell among the rocks and were changed to gold, while some which fell into the sea were transformed into amber. All nature mourned with her: the trees shed their leaves, the grass withered, and the flowers drooped their heads. At last Freya in her distress set out to find her husband, and, passing through many lands, where her golden tears were afterwards found, came to the sunny south, and there overtook the wandering Odur. As the lovers returned, the fields and the flowers rejoiced with them. The frost and snow fled before them, and the earth became green again as they passed.


“And Freya next came nigh, with golden tears;
The loveliest Goddess she in Heaven, by all
Most honour’d after Frea, Odin’s wife.
Her long ago the wandering Odur took
To mate, but left her to roam distant lands;
Since then she seeks him, and weeps tears of gold.”


This story, of course, reminds us of Ceres and Persephone, and is only another fanciful explanation of summer and winter.


Freya was the proud possessor of a dazzling necklace of gold, which had been made by the dwarfs, and which she wore night and day. On one occasion only did she lend the necklace, when Thor, disguised as Freya, went to the land of the giants to recover his hammer, which had been stolen by the Giant Thrym. Loki, by borrowing Freya’s robe of feathers and flying over the country of the giants, had discovered the thief, but had also found that Thrym would only return the hammer on condition that Freya would become his wife. When Freya heard of the giant’s presumption, she became greatly enraged, and vowed that she would never leave her beloved Odur and go to live in that dreary and desolate land of cold. Heimdall, the guardian of the bridge Bifrost, then suggested that Thor should go to Thrym disguised as Freya, in company with Loki disguised as Freya’s attendant. The gods at last allowed themselves to be persuaded, and Thor, having borrowed Freya’s clothes and necklace and wearing a thick veil, set out with Loki, who was dressed as a handmaiden. On reaching the giant’s palace, they were welcomed by Thrym, who was delighted at the success of his plan, and who led them to the banqueting hall, where a great feast was held. At the end of the feast, Thrym ordered the famous hammer to be brought in, and he himself laid it in his bride’s lap as a marriage gift. Thor’s hand immediately closed over the hammer, and in a few moments Thrym and all the guests invited to the wedding feast lay dead.


Freya was greatly relieved to have her necklace returned in safety, but the evil Loki, attracted by its wonderful beauty, determined to steal it. One night the god, by changing himself into a fly, succeeded in entering Freya’s palace. He then resumed his own shape, and, creeping stealthily to Freya’s bed, gently removed the necklace from the goddess’s neck. The watchful Heimdall, however, had heard Loki’s footsteps, and, looking in the direction of the Folk Meadow, became a witness of the theft. He at once set off in pursuit of Loki, and, overtaking him, drew his sword and was about to kill the thief, when Loki changed himself into a flame. Heimdall immediately changed himself into a cloud, and sent down a shower of rain to put out the fire. Loki then took the form of a bear, and opened his mouth to catch the water. Heimdall also took the form of a bear and attacked Loki, who, finding that he was being overpowered, changed himself yet again, into a seal. Heimdall followed suit, and fought again with Loki, and at length compelled him to give up the necklace, which was returned to Freya.


On another occasion Freya was sought by one of the giants, and it was only by the cunning of Loki and by an act of bad faith on the part of the gods that she was saved. The gods, ever anxious lest the giants should invade Asgard, decided to build a stronghold which would prove impregnable. They received an offer from a stranger, who was willing to undertake the work in return for the sun, the moon, and the goddess Freya. By Loki’s advice they accepted the offer on condition that he should complete the work in one winter, aided only by his horse. To the surprise of the gods the stranger agreed to these conditions, and with the help of his horse, which could haul the heaviest stone, set to work. The gods, who at first felt sure that their conditions had made the task impossible, were alarmed to find as time went on that the stranger was working so quickly that it seemed certain that he would be able to keep his promise. The gods on their side had no intention whatever of keeping their promise, since they could not possibly part with the sun and the moon and the Goddess of Love, and they angrily pointed out to Loki that since it was he who had got them into this difficulty, he must find some way out of it. Loki replied that the gods need have no fear, for with his usual cunning he had thought of a plan whereby the stranger might be made to forfeit his reward. On the last day, when only one stone remained to be dragged into position, Loki changed himself into a horse, and, trotting out from the forest, neighed loudly to attract the attention of the stranger’s horse. Tired of his continual labour and longing for freedom and rest, the horse broke free from its load and galloped after Loki. The stranger, after pursuing it vainly through the forest, at last made his way to Asgard, and, full of anger at the trick which had been played upon him, took on his real shape, for he was a frost-giant, and was about to attack the gods when Thor hurled his hammer at him and killed him.


Frey, the god mentioned in the story of Loki and Sif’s golden hair, was Freya’s brother. He was the God of the Fields, and sacrifices were made to him for the crops. In the early spring his wooden image was driven in a chariot through the countryside, in order that he might bless the fields and bring a fruitful harvest: Frey, as we have seen, became the possessor of a ship which could travel over land and sea, and though large enough to contain all the gods, yet could be folded up like a cloth, and he also possessed a boar with golden bristles. The god often rode on this boar, which was swifter than a horse, and was no doubt a symbol of the sun, which ripened the crops. We find the same idea of sunshine in Frey’s flashing sword, which fought of its own accord as soon as it was drawn from its sheath.


The month of the Angles and Saxons which begins just before our Christmas was sacred to both Frey and Thor, and it was customary at that time, as we have already mentioned, to bind a huge wooden wheel with straw, and, setting fire to it, to roll it down a hill. The wheel was a symbol of the sun, which at that time began to chase away the winter. At this time, too, was held a great feast to all the gods, and the chief meat eaten was a boar’s head, in honour of Frey. The missionaries who first brought Christianity to the Northmen, finding this feast was of great importance and was celebrated by all the people, did not try to do away with it. Instead, they changed it from a heathen to a Christian festival by putting Christ in the place of the Norse gods, and calling it the Feast or Mass of Christ. A similar change was made, it will be remembered, in the case of the Easter festival, held in honour of Eastre or Frigga, the wife of Odin.


The Witches Guide to Friday

Ruler: Freya, Venus

Colors: Emerald green or pink

Power Hours: Sunrise and the 8th, 16th, and 24th hours following.

Key Words: Love, money, health

It is easy to spot the ruler of this day by its name. In the word Friday, we see the roots of the name of the Norse goddess Freya, a goddess of love and fertility, and the most beautiful and propitious of the goddesses thus the verse “Friday’s child is loving and giving.”

In Spanish this day of the week is called Viernes and is derived from the goddess Venus. Matters of love, human interaction, the fluidity of communication, sewing and the creation of artistic garments, household improvement, shopping, and party planning all fall under the aspects of Friday and its ruling planet, Venus.

Friday’s angels are Ariel/Uriel, Rachiel, and Sachiel. Rachiel also concerns himself with human sexuality and is a presiding spirit of the planet Venus.

On Fridays, the hour of sunrise and every eight hours after that are also ruled by Venus, and that makes these times of the day doubly blessed. These four hours are the strongest four hours for conducting ritual.

Check the local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac to determine your local sunrise.

On Friday’s Love magick is a perennial popular topic. However, there is more to this topic than meets the eye. There are many enchanting layers here for us to explore on this day of the week.

Magickal Applications for Friday

Friday is named after the Norse goddesses of love, Freya and Frigga. There seems to be some debate as to whom the day is actually named after, so I thought I would share a little information so you can decide for yourself.

In Latin, this day is known as Dies Veneris, “Venus’s day.” In Greek, it’s Hermera Aphrodites, which translates to the “day of Aphrodite.” In Old English, this day is called Frige- daeg, or “Freya’s day.” This day has the Germanic title of Frije-dagaz, which, once again, could be Freya’s day or Frigga’s day.

Both Freya and Frigga were Norse goddesses of love and were the Teutonic equivalent of the Greco-Roman Venus/Aphrodite. However, Freya was one of the Vanir—the gods of fertility who supervised the land and sea—and she was the leader of the Valkyries. Frigga, Odin’s wife, was the goddess of the heavens and of married love. She was one of the Aesir—the gods associated with battle, magick and the sky. Freya and Frigga could be looked upon as different aspects of the same goddess. They both were called on to assist in childbirth and then in naming of the new baby. Frigga represented the faithful wife and loving mother, while Freya, who really captured the hearts and imagination of the Norse people, was the passionate mistress and lover.

Fridays classically are days for love, fertility, romance, and beauty magick, as well as working for happiness, harmony in the home, and friendship. So let’s take a look at some of the mythology involved with this loving, voluptuous, passionate, and luxurious day of the week, and see where it leads us.

3 red taper candles

2 large, strong rubber bands

A lighter

A shoebox

Cloth that is large enough to wrap the dolls in and yarn of the same color.

Cast your circle the way you are comfortable with and call the Quarters and Deities associated with love. ( Freya, Aphrodite, Eros…….) whichever you feel is appropriate to you.

Light the incense that you feel attracts love/lust – e.g. musk or whatever feels right to you. Anoint your candles with rose or other love attracting oils. Light the candle that is for you, and say:

“This candle is my burning love/lust for you. ”

Then also light and anoint the one for your target, and say:

This candle is your will to love/lust me. (Envision and think of the sort of man you long to be with in an intimate way!)

Get out your cloth and write “Lust” on it and tie two knots in the yarn one at each end. Place your male target doll by its candle and your doll by your candle. Anoint the last anointed red candle and place it between the other two, say:

“This is the growing love/lust attracting us to each other. “

Take the two lit candles and light the last candle with them at the same time . Now extinguish the candles for the target candle and your own candle and say :

“By the light of this growing lust for each other I bind him with it until I choose to break the bonds and part ways with you.”

Cover the dolls facing each other with the rubber bands around them if desired , then bind the cloth with the yarn or sting and tie with one more knot in the center. Place the dolls in the shoebox and put them somewhere they are not disturbed.

Thank the Quarters and the Deities you called for their presence at your spellcasting. Close the circle your usual way



On a Friday evening when the Moon is waxing gather a little orris root, an earthen bowl and a quantity of pure olive oil. If you are a woman also have a vial of jasmine oil; patchouli will do for.

Lay a pink cloth on the altar. Light pink candles. Pour the orris root into the earthen bowl, then add about half a cup of olive oil. Stir with the forefinger of your strong hand seven times clockwise. Now add the essential oil, no less than three drops, no more than seven.

Place the bowl on the altar. Gaze into it, infusing the oil with your desire for love. Enchant it by saying:

“Love, love, love, love, love, love, love.”

Simple and to the point, right? You might want to substitute a favorite love poem or sonnet.

Pour the oil into a jar and cork it tightly. Leave in a dark place, surrounded by the pink altar cloth, for 7 days. Upon the next Friday night uncork the bottle, strain and then store in the same bottle until needed.

Love oil should only be worn by its creator.

1 pinch of rosemary

2 teaspoons of black tea

On the following Friday, brew another pot of the love potion tea and give some to the person  you want to love you. He or she will soon begin to fall in love with you.

Let’s Talk Witch – What Love Spells Are, and Why You Should Probably Not Use Them.

A few months ago, I received a question from a new client about love spells.  What are they?  What can they do?  Could they bring back a man who had left her? Were they safe?  Should she hire someone to do one for her, or do it herself?

Love spells are probably one of the most badly misunderstood elements of magick and energy.  If you watch a children’s movies you will walk away with this idea of love magick: “And he fell madly in love with her with the first kiss and they lived happily every after.

On the other hand, if you are more inclined to listen to adult movies than children’s fairytales, you will likely feel that love spells work like this; “And the other woman/man was banished forever and they fell back, madly in love.  To spite all odds, love conquered all.”

Both of these philosophies on love spells are frighteningly, shockingly, dangerously in error.

To explain why I’m qualified to talk about love spells in the first place, let me recount a little bit of my personal history.  I was born able to speak to spirits.  My knowledge of ‘magick’ was little to none until I was an adult.  Angels don’t really use ‘magick’ as much as believe that bringing about miracles is simply a part of life.  I put my hands on my grandfather and he was healed.  I visualized my father coming home safe from a war zone, and he did.  I asked the angels for a kitten, they got me one.  Magick was just part of life.

At this time in my life I was introduced to a person who became and still is a very dear friend.  She had been studying magick for years; pagan magick, love spells, and all that went with them.  Partly out of curiosity, and partly out of a teenagers desire to see cool tricks, I started studying with her.

Years later, I know more about love spells than I ever cared to.  I know for example, that there is a GOOD kind of love spell; a love spell that brings happiness, peace, romance, and joy.  I also know that there is a BAD kind of love spell, and that this kind is that type almost everyone is asking about.

This article is about the negative kind of love spells, just to be clear.

Love spells can range from a simple repeating of a poem, to a prayer to your chosen entity of faith, to the lighting of a candle, all the way to very complex multi-day rituals that involve multiple people and huge expense.  Any one of these types of spells can be negative or positive.

So, what is the difference between negative and positive love spells?  It’s very simple.  It’s something called intention.

Intention is what you mean for energy to do.  Intention goes into everything.  Cooking, cleaning, speaking, eating, exercising…  No matter what you do, you do it with the idea in mind that you want a particular result.  When you bake a cake, you might be expecting delicious chocolate indulgence for yourself, or you might be hoping to impress your date, or maybe your mother-in-law.  Whatever it was that you were hoping that cake would accomplish, that was intention.

In love spells, intention is very important.  Any spell who’s direct intention is to bring about the highest good is positive.  Any magick that is intended to bend, break, or influence the will power of another person is negative.  Period.  The rule is that simple.

Angels will tell you that if there is one thing they envy human beings, it is out ability to choose.  Our free will is the things we choose to do. It is not the ‘secret’ desires of our heart the no one knows about, but what we actively put our enery toward. It is a sacred trust, and it is hugely powerful in manifesting our path.   However, any magick that seeks to take that basic right away, or even abridge it, has dire karmic consequences.

This is why the title says you should probably not use love spells.  Pure intention in love spells is rare, and hard to form.  Think about it; if you are in any situation in a relationship where you are desperate enough to seek magical intervention (and let’s face it, in our culture, magick is an absolute last resort), then you are more than likely too emotionally invested in the outcome to have a completely pure intention.

What would be a pure intention for a love spell? You have a right as human being to work magick on yourself, and to ask the universe to bring about the highest good for others.  That’s where it stops.

This is why almost all love spells are negative.  If you cast a love spell to bring a certain person back into your life, that is violating their free will.  If they wanted to be with you, they would not have left.  To cast a spell to bring about a divorce between to people is also negative, because if they want a divorce they can get it themselves.  To work magick to make someone love you when they do not already have those feelings is to break their freedom to choose who they love.

One of the hardest things to accept about love magick is that no matter how strong our emotions are for someone, they do not justify us stepping in and changing things magically.  No exceptions.

Now, before you start to think that I’m sounding like I’m judging you, let me tell you about my personal experience with love spells.  I had a man I was very much in love with.  He told me he loved me too, but his actions failed to live up to his words.  I put so much energy into love magick to make him ‘keep’ his promises.  First of all, even though they worked, I found that I was never happy with the results.  He would shape up for a little while, and then misbehave again.  I was caught in a loop of manipulating him into behaving the way I wanted him to, then getting angry at him for not sticking with that behavior.

But at the same time, I knew in my heart that if he really wanted to behave the way I wanted him to behave, he would do it.  The fact was, he didn’t want to.  And not amount of burning candles, begging the universe, or anything else was going to make him be someone other than who he was.

This is the best and biggest reason to avoid love spells.  If you are in a relationship that is bad enough to require magical intervention, then you are in a bad relationship.  If you have been abandoned by someone, then spells will only bring back to you the same disloyal person how betrayed you the first time.  If someone doesn’t love you, casting a spell to make them love you will only temporarily give them an emotional high, not build true lasting love.  As soon as the spells wears off, and they always do, that person will be gone.

So what love magick can you do, ethically and without breaking someone’s will?

You can ask the universe to bring you your own perfect true love.  You can ask the universe to make your heart ready to receive that love.  Last but not least, you can ask that the universe work for your highest good in love and romance. This means opening your heart to receive the right person, even if that person is not the one you have your eye on. You can also work magick on yourself to bring your desire into alignment with what is best for you, so that you will want only the right person, not the wrong one.

You can do this through prayer, poems, chants, candles, crystals, or whatever resonates with you most deeply.

But when it comes to casting love spells on someone else, it’s better to steer clear and leave that person’s destiny up to fate.

Asking for your own highest good will almost always bring about longer lasting, happier results for everyone involved.



Celebrating Legends, Folklore & Other Spirituality for August 17 – 24


August 17 – 24


Odin’s Ordeal Begins

According to legend, Odin hung on the World Tree Yggdrasil for nine days, during which time he discovered the runes. In modern Asatru, this discovery is celebrated with a nine-day festival starting on August 17. To those who follow the Norse traditions, Odin is the chief deity and appears in many aspects, among them leader of the wild hunt, God of magick, chooser of the slain in battle, and the dispenser of gifts. As king of Aesir, he was the God of fertility and the last sheaf of wheat was left in offering to his horse. His magickal number was 9 (the days he endured initiation on the World Tree), his color is blue (as is his cloak), and the raven of the Valkyries who attend him are sacred.


Magickal Activity for August 17th, The Ordeal of Odin

Rune Magick


Items needed: One small square of blue paper; a silver marking pen; one blue candle; nine inches of silver cord.

On the blue square of paper inscribe the pictured rune with the silver pen.

Light the blue candle and place it on top of the rune. Hold your hands over the candle and visualize your psychic abilities increasing as you chant:

“Let it be, that from this hour,

I know the secrets of psychic power.”

Leave the candle to burn for three hours. Extinguish the candle. Fold the paper in half and bind with silver cord. Place the packet with your runes or cards. Keep the packet near when reading for yourself or others.


Spirit Message of the Day – Have Faith in the Future



“Say positive affirmations each morning to open the gates of manifestation.”

Before arising from your bed, spend a few moments thinking about your desires. Don’t worry about how to bring them into physical form. Just allow yourself to imagine that they’ve already manifested.

“Then, make one or more positive affirmations relating to your desires. When you open your eyes, write down these affirmations (it’s a good idea to keep a pad and pen on your nightstand). During the day, look at the affirmations and say them mentally or verbally.”

Once you are able to articulate your needs and wants, focus on them for a short time; then send your wish request out into the Universe with good intention. Next, detach from each of your desires and any expectations you might have around their outcome.  Trust in the Universe that your requests and desires have been heard, processed, and will come into being in their own time; in unexpected and wonderful ways.

Today’s inspiration comes from Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.

Sample Affirmations
“Repeating positive affirmations several times a day is a powerful ritual that can reach your subconscious mind and help you reprogram your self image. To escape the trap of negative affirmations, you have to believe the positive affirmation with every fiber of your being. You may feel like an actor at first, but soon you will be able to see the truth in what you are saying and your affirmations will work that much better. When you start using these powerful affirmations, practice believing what you are saying for a few minutes, several times a day. After a while, these affirmations will become the way your body, mind, and spirit respond to the challenges of everyday life.”
