We love dearly.

We ask this Almighty Mother in Your
Divine Name and Love.

So Mote It Be

–Lady of the Abyss

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

Judgement

Judgment embodies those forces which require us to be accountable for our actions. With Judgment truths are revealed, mysteries are unraveled and responsibility is assigned. Judgment unveils outcomes and marks the ends of things. While it is a time to properly place guilt, it is also a time for atonement and forgiveness. Ultimately the process of Judgment should lead to freedom from errors made in the past and a fresh start with a clean slate. To that end Judgment actually promises the start of a new journey on which we can apply what we have learned from our past.

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for Today

The Magician

Do some magic of your own today, like penetrating facades and gaining insights into dubious stories that lack credibility. Hold onto your heartstrings until you know you haven’t met a fickle flirt or a trickster. The Magician makes us see what we want to see regardless of the reality of a situation. He draws us in because we love secrets and mysteries, but who wants to live with them day after day and year after year?

Your Past Life Tarot Card for Today

The Star

When you stand up for other’s rights you can stir deeply-seated past life memories in yourself. The origin of these feelings might come from having a past life experience of your own family’s struggle. At this time the civil rights leader inside you has come to the forefront. This spirit is more afraid of not standing up for what he or she believes in then fearful of what retribution one could face. This incarnation comes with an inner strength that is founded in compassion.

Your Ogham Reading for Today

 

Duir-Oak

The name of the oak tree was part of the early Celtic word for Druid. Oak trees have always had a greater tendency to be struck by lightning, thus they have always had a more sacred standing among many cultures. It is a tree of great strength, durable hardwood, and its roots grow as deep as the branches grow high. To the Druids it was the King of The Woods. Thus these features of the letter Duir allow us to focus this reading on strength, resilience, power, and nobility. Like the mighty oak tree you will prevail.

Fortune – This Ogham denotes new paths, new doorways, and success once you decide to follow these new ideas!

 

Quert-Apple

In many religious traditions the apple is a mystical or forbidden fruit. Yet to the Celts it was the food of the Gods. Despite it’s often bad reputation it is clear that the apple is a source of nutrition, health, and sustenance. That is why we read this ogham letter has having to do with life, health, and healing… a Quert a day keeps the bad vibes away!

Fortune – Take a good look at your mental and physical health. This Ogham is a warning to be mindful of nutrition and healing, take care of yourself!

 

Gort-Ivy

The ivy is a sneaky plant that will first use another tree for growth, but overtime it will potentially take away vital nutrients and water from the tree itself. Ivy can be a symbiotic helper bringing birds and wildlife or it can destroy the one it is with, drawing this letter is a sign of warning to pay attention to those in life with potential ill intentions. Ideas associated with Gort are restrictions, warnings, bindings, and potential deceit.

Fortune – Be wary of those in life who like the Ivy may be draining you of life energy. Be sure they are helpful to your soul and not harmful!

Your Karmic Number for Today

Life is a bit hard to piece together lately if you’ve drawn out a 3 in opposition like you have now. Jigsaw puzzles can be fun and relaxing. They help pass the time. It is messy when your life is in a thousand pieces. You have pieces missing, so the picture is incomplete. Change your diet. Drink more water, detox, exercise. Do some breathing techniques, journal. Confide in a good friend about your challenges. You are overdue for a purge of the toxins in your life. You will find what you need in unexpected ways.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Friday, September 14

Aries
Aries

While you may be itching to change your situation now, dear Aries, risky moves are not advisable at the moment. Have faith in your ability to better manage your life, but avoid the traps of thinking that’s too quick or cocky, which can put you in a state with blinders on. You might be odds with someone today over an issue of values or money owed, although it’s likely to be resolved (or put behind you) later today. These days, you do need to be careful about lending to others, or giving so much that you feel put upon. Today, there is a strong tendency to jump to conclusions or argument, when you’re far better off observing and using a wait-and-see approach. Tomorrow, this comes more easily to you.

Taurus
Taurus

Stifling situations and activities that restrict can frustrate you more than usual today, dear Taurus. Your awareness quickens. Unresolved misunderstandings may be glaring now, but you might be uncertain about how to tackle them. Your feelings are straightforward, but your fears or worries may be up and down. Watch for band-aid solutions to problems that require more depth and energy. With Uranus in your sign these days, intuitive flashes are becoming a regular part of your daily life. Try to keep one foot on the ground, but do listen to your intuition. Making too-quick decisions today may not be the best idea, though. Distinguish between making changes for the sake of change, and making changes that will genuinely move you forward.

Gemini
Gemini

Your thinking is otherworldly today, dear Gemini. You may even be receiving prophetic glimpses into your future through dreams or ideas picked up from the atmosphere around you. Profound inner changes are brewing, and today you may not know exactly what they are, but you feel that change is necessary. Actions today can be impulsive, however. If driven by a desire to rid yourself of certain unpleasant elements of the past, consider that a better solution may be to face the consequences of your past actions and to work on freeing yourself of guilt. There is no quick fix at the moment, even if you truly wish there to be one. Be honest with yourself. Note that mental stress could be interfering with your ability to think clearly and to take action confidently today. Impatience or insecurities can also interfere with your creative process now, although this should change radically towards the end of the day when strategy makes far more sense.

Cancer
Cancer

Unusual and surprising energy is with you for social activities today, dear Cancer, with Uranus in your social sector connecting with Mercury in your communications sector. However, watch for some impatience with others, and perhaps also with your work or communications. Mixing friends and personal projects right now could be an adventure in risk. This is not the best of times to lend someone money or to make a commitment either, as all of the facts are not yet available or they’re under your nose, but you don’t see them! There is a certain impatience to the day that makes it all too easy to skip steps or jump to conclusions but keep in mind that neither of these things is advisable now. As the day advances, though, you begin to see the benefits of a wait-and-see approach.

Leo
Leo

Off the cuff remarks are more likely than usual today, and can cause quite a stir, dear Leo, but keeping things to yourself can be frustrating as well. Try to arrive at a compromise wherein you choose your words more carefully but express your discontent nonetheless. You are not inclined to enjoy feeling caged in, but neither are you happy with what feels like neglect when given the freedom to do your own thing. New insights into your career are coming now, and it’s important to listen not only to what your intuition is telling you but also to what seems to be coming from out of the blue – synchronicity and other chance events. Be careful when it comes to relationships with a partner, best friend, or business partner, as you may be too quick to jump to conclusions. As the day progresses, though, you’re more inclined to pace yourself, seeing the value of taking everything in before passing judgment.

Virgo
Virgo

Disagreements or inner conflicts experienced today can stem from a sense that your desires are not exactly in tune with your higher ideals, dear Virgo. The way you view the world and how you experience the meaning of life is changing, and sometimes this can leave you feeling frustrated, or you can feel as if you’re spinning your wheels. The desire to explore the world beyond your usual daily routines is strong, but you may not yet have a plan of action to do so. Avoid jumping to conclusions. Towards the end of the day, you are likely to be feeling more at peace with others and with yourself, and this fuels your ambitions and improves your productivity, too. In fact, tomorrow and the next day hold excellent potential for useful conversations or making clear plans and connections that leave you feeling positive and confident.

Libra
Libra

There can be times today when impatience gets the best of you, dear Libra. Don’t let it rule you. Even though life tends to smooth out later today, do watch that you don’t jump to conclusions about someone or something. If you’ve been holding yourself back or suppressing your feelings, you may no longer tolerate the situation, and you can come on quite suddenly now. Unexpected events can occur that force you along a different path. Insight into your finances or something in your intimate, inner life may emerge, but don’t be too quick to draw a conclusion. This is a period of freeing yourself from compulsive behavior that has been holding you back. You might experience a moment of truth that motivates you to kick a bad habit and to live a freer life as a result.

Scorpio
Scorpio

It can be difficult to rely on both people and schedules today, dear Scorpio, and especially a partner or close friend, whose desire for freedom, or whose impatience, can produce some waves in your own life right now. Changes in relationships in recent times seem to have been thrust upon you, as if you had no say in the matter. However, you might come to an enlightening realization now that the changes are something that you need to grow. Freeing yourself from the role of a passive bystander in your own life is what this is all about, and it’s empowering indeed. Nevertheless, this is likely to be a mixed day, and it’s best not to push too hard particularly with a friend. Impatience should be tamed. As the day progresses, you’re likely to find it far easier to observe and strategize.

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

You may see the changes that you’ve experienced with your work and daily routines in recent months in a new light today, dear Sagittarius. Adapting to a changeful working environment or daily affairs can be stressful at times, although also more rewarding when you realize you can meet the challenges. Avoid jumping into something prematurely, however, and watch for tensions over expectations from or of others. Someone could rub you the wrong way, and this can frustrate you. It may be difficult to understand a partner or a job requirement, as messages you are receiving are unclear and conflicting right now. Later today, however, tensions are likely to dissipate, and you find it far easier to concentrate on priorities.

Capricorn
Capricorn

These days, new insights can come in bright, empowering flashes, dear Capricorn, with Uranus transiting your solar fifth house although some changes happening now can be upsetting or jarring as you make adjustments. Avoid an abrupt, impatient, or defensive manner today as you deal with tensions and alterations. You don’t always do well with sudden changes of plans, but it’s best to roll along with them for now. Avoid making rash decisions today since the tendency to skip steps or ignore certain facts or precautions can lead to poor choices. However, as the day progresses today, your patience kicks in, and you’ll find tomorrow and the next exceptional for communicating, choosing, deciding, and observing. You are likely to enjoy rewarding interactions with others and may very well find precisely the right information you need.

Aquarius
Aquarius

Changes in your domestic situation or your inner world may be more frequent in recent months with Uranus beginning its long-term transit of your solar fourth house, dear Aquarius. Or, you may feel a bit caged in and desirous of change. Feeling unsettled or insecure is possible today if you’re thrust into a situation in which you feel inexperienced. While this is generally a good time for looking forward and feeling positive about making changes, taking quick action may not have desirable outcomes today. The tendency to jump to conclusions or to make swift, unstudied choices is strong. Listen to your urges, but judge whether you may be temporarily blowing things out of proportion. The next couple of days are strong for having the patience and foresight to make good decisions.

Pisces
Pisces

Generally, this is an important time for paying particular attention to ideas that seem to come out of the blue and unexpected communications, dear Pisces, with Uranus in your solar third house. Your intuition is working over-time now. However, there is a tendency for impatience today such that you skip steps or information, which can trip you up if you jump into something too soon. While emotional honesty is a beautiful thing, this is the case when it’s expressed maturely. If emotions are released in spurts, or if you are not representing yourself confidently, then your proclamations may bewilder others now. Take more time with your ideas — get them straight and choose tomorrow or the next to share.

If You Were Born Today, September 13

In your Birthday ORTEGA42 (12-09-18) from Piedad5007

If You Were Born Today, September 13

Extremely creative, you are also able to turn your creations into something practical. A born entrepreneur, you seem to have endless new ideas. A tendency to over-analyze your relationships should be watched. You are fully capable of taking the lead; nevertheless, you enjoy serving in some manner, whether it’s through teaching or simply finding joy in tending to others’ needs. You are clever, witty, and your sense of humor is mischievous. Sarcasm comes easily to you, but be careful it’s not too biting. Overall, you have the sense that you can win others over with your wit, and you usually can! Your ability to solve problems is next to none. Famous people born today: Ben Savage, Jean Smart, Mel Torme, Roald Dahl, Jacqueline Bissett, Nell Carter, Fiona Apple.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in a waxing semi-square (Crescent Moon) at the time of your birthday this year, the period ahead is one of new initiatives and action. You possess quite a bit of energy, but you must be aware that emotions color much of what you do this year. It can be hard to be objective as a result.

This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.

You continue to benefit from a Pluto-Sun transit this year (this influence began in March 2018). Your attitude towards life evolves and transforms in significant ways. What used to satisfy you may not go on to do so, particularly if your goals have been superficial or a poor reflection of your inner desires. You are no longer willing to make compromises in the important areas of your life, particularly with regards to career and your life path. You are more determined this year, and it’s an excellent time for getting rid of bad habits. This is a year in which to get your life back on track, as you have the willpower to do so. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what you’re really about. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus help you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a wonderful chance of being fruitful and long-lasting.

This is a time when you feel confident and supported enough to pursue your desires. It’s a good time to take steps towards making yourself feel more secure and safe, and for family or domestic activities. This is also a period when you more readily support or defend your loved ones, and they do the same! New connections and opportunities can be sudden but welcome.

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.

With Venus and Mars in a square aspect to each other in your Solar Return chart, your affections are strongly stimulated, and you are more acutely aware of your powers of attraction. Romance, love, sexuality, competition, and creative projects occupy your mind more than usual. You can enjoy an increase in personal magnetism but be wary of competitiveness or tension in existing relationships, as this aspect ignites your passions in general, whether they’re feelings of love or anger!

You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This positively impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.

From April 2019 forward, you benefit from a transiting Saturn trine to your Sun which is an especially grounding influence. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness. Traditional methods work, and thoroughness brings rewards. Practice or refining a technique is favored this year. The approach that seems to work best with this aspect is a step-by-step one and the appreciation of slow but steady progress. Stabilizing elements in your life add value.

New beginnings are likely this year as your life takes on new directions. 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. In other areas, you’re hunkering down and getting organized. It’s a good year in which to do detail work and to prepare for the future. Some relationships (or a key one) can be competitive or up-and-down, but you’re also making special connections. Special care with finances is wise this year, particularly when it comes to impulse buys.

2018 is a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It’s a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are especially able to attract others–and material things as well–this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.

2019 will be a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study, observe, research, and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.

 

Superheroes by Zodiac Sign

It’s a bird … it’s a plane … it’s the superheroes of Astrology!


With superpowers that range from flying faster than a speeding bullet to living under water and commanding the seas, our favorite superheroes can draw strength from all the horoscope signs.

Meet all the superheroes of the zodiac!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries are fearless leaders, and none more fearless than Captain America. As the leader of the Avengers, Captain America relies on his physical strength, speed and agility to stay one step ahead of his foes. Active, athletic and energetic like a true Aries Ram, Captain America wields his indestructible shield against injustice, leading the way into the battle to protect freedom.

 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is known for being stubborn, but that also indicates the kind of sheer determination and willpower demonstrated by Hal Lantern and the intergalactic crime-fighting force we know as the Green Lantern Corps.  Just like all pleasure-loving Bulls, each member of the Green Lantern possesses a power ring and a power lantern that gives them control over the physical world. If we had to guess, the Green Lanterns probably like spaghetti, too.

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

True to the dual nature of Gemini, The Wonder Twins’ powers are activated only when they touch each other and speak the words “Wonder Twin powers activate! Shape of… Form of…” As the changeable communicators of the zodiac, it’s telling these Twins always have a new form to morph into — and also telling that without each other their powers are useless. And like most multitasking Gemini Twins, the Wonder Twins have the power to be in two places at once!

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Sensitive, caring cancers are known for sometimes being shy and wanting to withdraw or hide away from the world. How wonderful to be able to disappear via the superpowers of the Invisible Woman, also known as Sue Storm. Like most Cancer women, Sue Storm is nurturing and highly protective of her home, creating a force-field of protection around her Fantastic Four family.

 

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Drama-loving Leos will identify with wise-cracking webcrawler Spiderman, who — unlike his unassuming alter ego Peter Parker — does not shy away from being the center of attention when he’s saving the day. Spidey also has that typical Leonine love of romance, wooing the vivacious Mary Jane Watson like the Leo ladykiller he is.

 

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

With his inherent reliability and critical eye for detail, Robin is the ideal Virgo choice to assist Batman in fighting crime. Virgos are known for their smarts and their dark sense of humor, which are both evidenced by Robin’s need to do the right thing and his love of perfectly-timed puns.

 

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, rules the balanced sign of Libra, which bodacious Wonder Woman embodies perfectly. WW is gorgeous, kind, friendly and out to fight for fairness. She deflects attacks with a gracious flick of her golden wristbands, and let’s her golden lasso fly in demand that truth be told. Like those born under the sign of the scales, she’s a true diplomat with a hot bod to match.

 

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Dark and mysterious Scorpios love secrets, and Batman has the biggest secret of all: He doesn’t actually have any superpowers. As Bruce Wayne, he keeps his Bat identity from everyone but Robin, who he relies upon for backup while he plots and schemes – and who he also protects out of fierce loyalty, as any true Scorpio would. One word of caution to Robin? Don’t let Batman down, ‘cause Scorpio has an unforgiving temper and you’ll be driven right out of Gotham City faster that we can say na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na BATMAN!

 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Adventure-loving Sagittarius can never stay in one place for too long, which is surely why Thor travels between worlds on his chariot, sporting his archer-esque ensemble of iron gauntlets and a belt of strength. Instead of arrows, Thor’s weapon of choice is the Mjolnir – and enchanted and unbreakable hammer — but his talents are pure Sagittarius: strength, speed and the power of flight.

 

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Superman’s horoscope sign is under much debate, most likely because he has two birthdays – one on Krypton and the other on Earth. Because he chose Earth, earthy Capricorn best represents Superman. Like most Caps, the man of steel is grounded, solid and loyal to Lois Lane. He’s also a determined force to be reckoned with, and he will not waver in his fight for truth, Justin and the American way. That is until he gave up his U.S. citizenship. Oops.

 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Quirky Aquarians are eccentric, forward thinking and friendly humanitarians, so when it comes to Aquarian superpowers we look to Professor X. A mutant with the most brilliant mind in the fake universe, Professor X is the world’s most powerful telepath – reading minds and projecting his own thoughts into the minds of others in the truly futuristic way of the water-bearer, an air sign known best for its great mental capacity, new ideas and concepts.

 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Who swims with the Pisces fishes? Why, Aquaman, of course! But Aquaman doesn’t just live beneath the sea and communicate with marine life — he also captures the sensitivity and imagination of Pisces. Changeable, adaptable and understanding of others to the point that he even possesses a healing factor, Aquaman uses his Pisces imagination to whip up tsunamis and wipe out crime, restoring a Piscean peace to the land.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for September 13

There’s a strong emphasis on studying holistic healing techniques and sensible alternative medical interests as Mars makes a supportive, 60-degree link to shaman-mentor Chiron (10:36am) just a few hours prior to the sun forming a parallel to Chiron (3:29pm). Try your hand at writing rhyme poetry, limericks or haiku while the moon in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces (1:51pm) followed by Mercury in Virgo making its annual polarity to Neptune (6:33pm). While the Mercury-Neptune tie stimulates your creative imaginative prowess, it also suggests playing a waiting game regarding major decisions and long-term commitments. The monthly lunar union with Jupiter (9:34pm) can be a good-luck charm and source of providence, but avoid over-confidence and pride that can send you on a cosmic detour.

Thursday: When the hammer is smashing up the skies

And we have just arrived to Thursday, named after Thor, the Norse god of thunder. He travels through the heavens in a charriot, wearing a special belt and iron gloves which give him extra strength to lift his giant hammer.

Romance languages based their fifth day’s name upon the Latin Dies Iovis, meaning the Day of Jupiter (jueves in Spanish, jeudi in French, giovedi in Italian). Jupiter was a chief Roman god, the god of laws and social order. His attribute was a thunderbolt.

Today is Thursday, September 13

Thursday is the day of the planet Jupiter, dedicated to Thunor(Thor), God of thunder and agricultural work. His parallels in various European traditions are Zeus, Taranis, Perun, Perkunas and St. Olaf. The faith of the Northern Tradition holds Thursday sacred, just as Islam reveres Friday, Judaism the Sabbath(calculated from sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday), and Christianity, Sunday. This is why almost all adages about Thursday are positive, such as “Thursday’s child has far to go,” “Sneeze on Thursday, something better,” or “Cut nails on Thursday for wealth.” Thursday rules controlled optimism, energetic growth, physical well-being and material success.

The Pagan Book of Days for Thursday, September 13

The Roman festival of the Lectisternia was held in homor of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. The rune Ken represents the flaming torch within the royal hall, the time of the creative fire–the forge where natural materials are transmuted by the actions of the human will into a mystical third, an artefact that could not otherwise come into being. The positive aspects of sexuality immanent in the goddess Freyja and the god Frey come into play at this time.

Complicated Kannaz

The runic half-month assigned to Kannaz (which is also known as Kenaz, Kano or Cen) begins today, with its last day falling on September 27th. Exactly how this rune should be interpreted is uclear: runic scholars agree that it seems to suggest the idea of burning, but opinion is divided between the positive meaning of a flaming torch or the light of illumination and the negative connotation of a burning pain or fever, such as that induced by an ulcer, abscess, or infection. As Kano, this rune may furthermore point to the sacred vehicle associated with the Danish earth goddess Nerthus.

If you can, procure some dried mandrake today. Sacred to Mercury, today’s planetary ruler, this emblem of the enchantress Circe is believed to contain the essence of magick itself, while its narcotic properties may be exploited by very skilled healers.

On Thursday, September 13, We Honor

All Soul’s Day (Egypt)
NEPTHYS

Themes: Death; Spirits; Rebirth

Symbols: Fire; Basket; Myrrh
About Nepthys: This Egyptian funerary goddess has a hawk for a sacred animal. Together they guide and watch the souls of our loved ones in the afterlife. In Egyptian tradition, Nepthys lives in the east, where she can receive the rising sun, a symbol of the hopefulness she can instill and of resurrection.
To Do Today: Today was Nepthys’s festival day in ancient Egypt. As with other festivals for the dead, it was a time not only to propitiate the goddess with offerings of aromatic incense like myrrh but also to satisfy any wandering spirits. If someone you care about passed away during the last year, burn some incense for this goddess and leave a small basket filled with a token for her on your altar. This acts as a prayer to Nepthys to keep a watchful eye on that soul and grant them peace.
If you find your sense of hopefulness waning under everyday pressures, light a candle honoring Nepthys today, and every day, until you sense a difference in attitude. Try to choose a candle whose color represents hope and change to you (sprout green is one good choice). Inscribe the candle with a symbol of what you most need to turn things around so that this goddess can shine dawn’s revitalizing light into your heart and begin lifting some of that heaviness.

The Witches Guide to Thursdays

Today is the day for prosperity work of all kinds. It can also be used for healing work, whether that is a physical healing of an illness or an emotional healing. Also remember that you have to follow up your healing work and prosperity magick and physical action.

I can’t tell you the number of times I have met new witches who complain to me that their prosperity spell or “I need a better job” spell did not work as they expected. They’ll ramble on and on about how much time and money they spent working their magick….but, alas, they had no glorious manifestation of wealth or fabulous job that suddenly dropped out of the sky and landed in their laps.

Then, when I gently ask them, “Did you enchant your resume or application when you filled it out? Did you do a little confidence-boosting spellwork when you went to apply for the job or went to the interview?” typically they give me a blank, confused stare.

Nine times out of ten, their response is, “You mean I have to go out and actually look for the job too?” Um, yes, my dear, you certainly do. Magick follows the path of least resistance, which means it’s going to manifest along the simplest, quickest route. Get out there and hit the pavement. See what you can find. Times are tough and competition for good jobs is fierce, so you need whatever edge you can get. For folks like us, we’re going to get the edge by using our magick and our spellcraft.

Thursdays have such a rich source of magick for us to draw upon that, honestly, the sky is the limit. This is the day associated with the gods of the sky and heavens, after all. Get to know these deities and add their wisdom and magick into your days

The Witches Must Do List for Thursday

Try wearing some honeysuckle-scented perfume to encourage prosperity. Bewitch someone by wearing deep royal blue or brighten up a dreary day by wearing lucky, prosperity-drawing green. Brew up a pot of mint tea to help increase your cash flow. Try adding a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon to an unscented candle to encourage some fast cash. Bake up a loaf of wheat bread for the family, and celebrate abundance and be thankful for all that you have.

Conjure up a witchy craft and create a philter or two for your magickal needs. Work with the deities and the magickal plants corresponding with Thursday.

How did the energies of the plants of Jupiter enhance your magick? What did you learn by working with Juno, Jove, or Zeus? The truth is that by adding these new techniques and information into your spellcasting repertoire, you will indeed advance your skills, thereby moving up in the ranks to become a more adept magickal practitioner

Just by believing in yourself and working toward creating abundance, health, and prosperity, you have already begun to transform your outlook on life. Put your game face on; think positively.

Break out the tarot cards; How could you incorporate that symbolism into other spells of your own design?

Use your imagination, check Thursday’s correspondence list, and see what other bewitching things you can conjure up for prosperity magick all by yourself. Call on the gods and goddess of Thursday and bring some positive change, abundance, health, and prosperity into your life!

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.

In the Witch’s Tool Chest:

“Runes for Rituals”

At their simplest, runes are symbols carved or drawn onto some surface or other and most often used as divinatory tools. Many Witches have a set of rune stones. I have three: one set that I made myself out of clay as a project with my first group, one gemstone set that I bought, and my favorite, a beautiful set made out of dichroic glass by one of the members of Blue Moon Circle.
But runes can be used for more than predicting the future. Rune symbols have a power and an energy all their own, and this energy can be harnessed in magickal work as well. Try scratching a rune or two on a candle when casting a spell. Or use a wood-burning tool to etch some runes into your wooden staff or wand. Draw a rune on the paper you write a spell on or in your Book of Shadows

.
There are a number of different symbols that you can use: the Norse and Germanic runes are most commonly known, but there are also Egyptian hieroglyphics, glyphics, the Theban script alphabet, and a few others. Just pick the symbols that resonate with you, and add their energy to your magick.

Celebrating Legends, Folklore & Spirituality 365 Days A Year for September 13 – 14

All Souls’ Day/Festiva[ of Jupiter

Optimus Maximus

All Souls’ Day in Egypt was a festive occasion. Held in honor of the Goddess Nephthys, Mistress of the Palace, it honored ored the spirits of the dead. There most certainly would have been a royal procession among the common people, followed by a public ritual and the Ceremony of Lighting the Fire. All the other activities would have taken place in the temple that was accessible only to thepriesthood of Nephthys and the royal family.
Jupiter Optimus Maximus (“Jupiter Best and Greatest”) is the supreme Roman God. He was worshiped above all other Gods. The Ludi Romani games took place in September, with a special festival on September 13. The farmers’ harvested fields and orchards demanded little attention, the military campaigns paigns would be coming to a close with the soldiers coming home, and the populace was in a serious mood for “fun.” On the Ides of September 13, Jupiter received a sacrifice of a white ox in gratitude for an abundant harvest and successful battle. This would have been followed by notorious Coliseum games that somehow seem to eclipse the significant religious character of the Roman Empire.

Redo the spell whenever you have need of money.

Spirit Message of the Day – Take Time to Smell the Roses

THE ROSE
Feminine, East, Venus-Fire

“I am Rose. I am beauty. If life seems too fast, slow down and smell by beauty. Take some time for yourself. Feed your spirit. A short journey into nature can clam, center, and revitalize you. Look to the beauty in all that surrounds you, in all your relations. To enjoy my beauty, you must deal with my thorns; but beware, they are sharp. I am joy. I am sorrow. Open up and let go of your emotions.”

YOUR MESSAGE
Take some time today for yourself. Take a walk or hike through the neighborhood or local park. Allow yourself to be surrounded by plants, flowers, and nature. It is in this place where you can open up, take a deep breath, and let all of your thoughts go for a moment. Let all your fears, worries, and concerns go. Allow your emotions to fill up inside you and then let that go too. Just be still in the moment and appreciate the beauty that constantly surrounds you every day. Notice the smells, the sights, the sounds.

Appreciate all that your life, including everyone in it, has to offer today.
Challenge yourself to make quality time for self each and every day. Be willing to see things differently during this time of change. Let it all go to find the answers you seek. Let today simply be a new beginning for you.
The East represents new beginnings, new starts, perception, clarity, higher self, communication, and creativity. Fire represents assertive, forceful, primal, illumination, change, spirit, purification, and power.

Today’s message comes from Shaman Wisdom Cards by Leita Richesson.
