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.

Magical Mandrake

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. Work with Thor for perseverance and courage, and apply those qualities to your own prosperity spells and healing witchery. 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.

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.
