A Very Happy, Happy Bright & Blessed New Year To One & All!

My first blingee for 2016 :D

Tick Tock

I’m writing this in a state of shock,
Watching the clock—tick tock, tick tock,
Advancing, approaching, relentlessly,
A brand new year; Oh, can it be?

The calendar says the same thing, too;
Time races, vanishes for me; Boo hoo!
No, wait! If time flies, I’m having fun!
A year of fun! It’s gone! It’s done!

I now embrace the blur of time,
Because it simply means that I’m
Too busy with pleasure, joy, delight
To mourn the passing days’ swift flight.

So I’m wishing you fast, happy days,
Pleasuring you in myriad ways,
Filled with happiness and cheer,
Oh Happy, Happy Bright New Year!

Happy New Years To All Our Brothers & Sisters Down Under! May The Goddess Bless You In This New Year!

Happy New Years
Well, another year has come and gone. Can you believe it? It seems time is starting to fly by. I know time especially flies by when it comes to our internet provider. We have reached our data cap for this month, unfortunately. Which in plain English means if we post anymore, we get charged for every gig we use. In order to prevent our internet bill from going any higher this year, we are forced to take the day off. We apologize for this but we have no control over it. I just checked our bill and right now, we can’t afford to go any further in posting for this month. We went over our data cap a week ago and didn’t stop posting and now we are paying dearly for it. I know you don’t want to hear about our personal problems but we don’t want to be off the internet either.

We are having a meeting today to figure out how we can prevent this from happening. So far it has happened this month and the month of November. We have a message to get out and we want to get that message out without it costing us an arm and a leg. We can go back to one of our posting ideas that we came up with earlier, that was to post on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We could compile everything into one post and just post once a week but I don’t believe that most of you would like that. I know you have come to expect your daily horoscopes, tarot card and runes each and every day. Another option is to ask for sponsors for The WOTC. A few dollars a month would make a ton of difference and perhaps then we could afford to post daily as we normally do. But I sincerely do not like asking you for money or donations, I will leave that up to you. If you would like to become a sponsor of the WOTC, we would deeply appreciate it. If you would like to make a one time donation, we would also appreciate that. We can make a dollar stretch to it squeals.

We do have several sponsors and we deeply appreciate them. These good people have found it in their hearts to donate to us each month. They see that our message and our work is important and we are worthy to contribute too. They also understand that the operations of the WOTC isn’t cheap. They realize that we have a high internet bill to pay, electric bill to keep the computers humming, water, phone and much more. The WOTC is not the only website we run on the internet. We have several that we operate. We are not only active on the internet, we are also active in the community as well. Our mission is simple and to the point. We are determined to dispel all the old myths and stereotypes associated with Witches and Witchcraft. Also to tell the truth and beauty about our religion, Witchcraft. I told you about being attacked on Facebook recently. That proved one thing to me, we still have along way to go and we need your help to continue our message.  Even if you are down under, you can still contribute to the WOTC. I am not familiar with the currency down there but I am sure PayPal is. I hate to talk about money on the last day of the year but then again, I hate to take the day off because we have reached our data cap and cannot afford to pay anymore on our internet bill. What I am doing right now will probably cost us an additional $5 or $10. So if you have ever thought about contributing to us, please do so. I can guarantee you, your contribution will be put to very good use.

It is funny looking back when we first started out, we never had these problems. At the very first, I wanted to be the biggest and best Witchcraft site on the internet. I never knew that doing just that would be so costly. We have been on the internet for many, many years. We have a store and all the purchases from the store goes directly to our operation costs. We have several donors a month but we need more. Whether we have to go to posting three days a week or we are lucky enough to get more donors, either way we will continue to do our work and spread our word.

With that I will stop. Now you know the situation, we will be off the internet today due to the data cap. Tomorrow starts a new month and a new year, we will be back then. Hopefully, we will have some new sponsors come on board and we won’t have to worry about this issue anymore. If not, we will go to posting every other day and see how that works out. So my dear brothers & sisters, please be safe tonight. We want to see all your smiling faces right back here tomorrow.

Happy New Year’s Eve,

Love ya,

Lady A

Tarot Card of the Day for December 29 is The Hermit

Tarot Card of the Day

The Hermit


The challenge of The Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals, and nature herself.

While an hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit Tarot cards, more modern cards have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with nature.

The universe is trying to send you a message!

Get A Jump On Tomorrow or Your Horoscopes for those down-under, Saturday, Dec. 29

The Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, December 29th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

Expect to bump into people you have not seen for an age. This is the stars’ way of trying to merge the past and present together. Not to mention the fact that you are ready to make peace and to try to have a more predictable year.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

There is a really rushed feeling to your chart today which could see you letting down those who had hoped you would put more time and effort into what has been asked of you. Good news from family helps you to look forward to the New Year.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

Do you feel like you’re missing something? You’re missing taking your own time in what is quite clearly a very emotional period. Stop and remember what you want the end result to be. It can save you going too far off the beaten path this week.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

You may find yourself having to go along with plans you don’t really approve of just to placate a certain close one. Try to do what’s required with a smile on your face, or there is no point in making the effort.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

Try not to be deterred from what you want to do by negative words or comments. Your sign is stronger than that. Besides my friend, you will be the one in a better position when you achieve all that you set out to do.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

The need for you to have more concrete plans for your future could see you go out with all guns blazing today. Know how far is too far to go, or you will only end up upsetting those you have just got back on track with. Ring now for sense to prevail.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

You may have trouble in completing what’s ahead unless you can gain some support from those who are more experienced than you. New friends have the potential to be so much more if you would take down some of those defences.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Try not to take what others say today too much to heart, as many of the signs really are talking for the sake of it. Emotions run high tonight and may see you confessing something which changes everything.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

The reason you haven’t been feeling strong enough of late is because you have been taking advice from those whose lives you would never want for your own. Stand back today and take stock of what needs to be done.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

It is going to be all too easy for you to get simple plans mixed up, so don’t be afraid to confirm and double check all arrangements. It’s sure to make for a much smoother day if you do.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

I know you feel as if your close ones have been distant lately. However, many of the signs are keeping to themselves more this week as they go though a series of changes the stars have initiated for us all personally.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Try not to say bad things about new faces you meet. Your first impressions are unlikely to be the right ones. If you are willing to give others the benefit of the doubt, then you just might be able to make a change which, this year, has been an impossibility.

Where You Born on Friday, December 28

Happy birthday, Diana!(anabella100)

Happy Birthday, Capricorn!

Work hard and party hard with the zodiac’s ambitious Goat


You might not have a lot of close friends, but the ones you have let into your life are the kinds of people you will always treasure.

If you were born on December 28, you never disappoint! No matter what is asked of you, you come through for your friends, family, and coworkers. You’re an incredibly loyal and dependable person who loves a good challenge! While this makes you a very popular, stand-up human being, it can also be a lot of pressure! Being loyal and reliable are traits you should be proud of and hold on to but remember that it’s okay to say no to favors and requests. Be aware of who your true friends are versus those who may be taking advantage of your helpful hand.

At your best: Dependable, generous, strong
At your worst: Needy, aloof, unaware

More About Capricorn

Tradition is your middle name, Capricorn. And when it comes to birthday celebrations, you’re all about enjoying it in a time honored way. As someone who appreciates everything antique, you might actually be one of the few signs who don’t cringe at the thought of getting older. In fact, it makes you feel more important somehow … as if you are finally morphing into the respected authority figure you strive to be.

Party Responsibly

Even though it’s your birthday, in many ways it’ll still be business as usual for you. You’re one of the most ambitious and responsible signs, and tend to put your professional aspirations above all else. Success is where you aim, and luckily, even though it takes many years and plenty of diligent effort, you typically end up realizing any goal you set for yourself. You are more reserved and cautious than most but that won’t stop you from enjoying your special day. Your approach might be less party animal and more prudent, but that doesn’t mean you don’t know how to have fun. You simply tend to do it on a budget and with a curfew. Hey — there’s a reason why you’re so successful. Knowing your limits is one of them!

If you have one fault it’s that you take life so seriously that occasionally you may fall into fits of melancholy. This is due to the fact that you view life with stark realism, a tendency that leaves little room for imaginings and faith. But at least on your birthday, consider making an exception. When your loved ones light the candles on your cake, go ahead and make a wish. This year, why not even trust that it might come true?

Your Daily Horoscopes for December 28th

Your Daily Horoscopes for December 28th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

I know it feels as if time is moving too slowly lately. What you don’t see is that your close ones are doing as much as they can to ensure you get what you want. Try to thank those involved. It will help give them the push and reminder that they need.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Relationships come under the spotlight and many of your sign will spend their time trying to analyse the very confusing signals you have been given of late. Time spent with those you know well is guaranteed to be the tonic you need.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

There is a degree of uncertainty to all you are doing at this time. That’s not a worry to a sign such as you Gemini. Any negativity you receive will only serve to make you more determined.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Try not to create too much of a competitive air between you and your friends today, or you will sour what should and can be a really memorable week. News from far away gives you several reasons to get excited about the year ahead.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

Learn as if you were to live forever. It is how you will turn a possibility into a certain plan. You think you don’t have the respect of those you work for, but today is about to show you otherwise. Work issues from last month can finally be tied up now.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

The need for fun is strong in your chart which could see you telling white lies to those you no longer wish to associate with. Know how far is too far to go or you could cast yourself as unreliable to those who are only just getting to know you.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Friends could become so much more for many of your sign and it would be worth your while trying to slow your pace and enjoy each moment you experience. You weren’t sure current situations had staying power, but they do!

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

The things you haven’t started are still waiting for you to address them. If you feel you can’t do this alone, then enlist the help of those you love. Your stars tell me they’re more than ready to give you the support you need.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Are you sure you’re taking care of yourself as well as everyone else Sagittarius? If you think you are worthy of attention, then others will too. Changes to the home will soon be on your mind, and they’re good ones! Ring now for an unusual prediction regarding love.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

The need to tie up old chapters so you can begin a fresh one is prominent in your chart. This is also a really good week to try to kick bad habits, as you’re likely to succeed if you try now.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

The chance to do new things is strong in your stars. You are ready to admit that a sign such as you needs constant stimulation as well as the realisation that you cannot do a job you don’t feel passionate about.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Your imagination goes into overdrive and you may even end up accusing your close ones of things they have not and would not do. Know how far is too far to go. Today offers you the chance to find some common ground again. Make sure you take advantage.

RETRIBUTION/BETWEEN LIVES

RETRIBUTION

Along with reincarnation go thoughts of Karma.

Karma is usually thought of as a reward-and-punishment system stretching throughout all lifetimes: if you do evil in one life you will have to pay for it in the next. However, it seems that there is always talk of “karmic debts” and “karmic punishments” but seldom of “karmic rewards”. The Witchcraft view seems to make more sense.

First of all there is a Wiccan belief in retribution within each life. In other words, rather than being rewarded and punished after death, for what you have done in life (the traditional Christian view), Witches believe that you get your rewards and punishments during this lifetime, according to how you live it. Do good and you will get back good. But do evil and evil
will return. More than that, though, it is a three-fold retribution. Do good and you will get back three times the good; do evil and you will receive three times the evil. Obviously there is here no inducement for you to ever harm anyone. Of course it is not a literal threefold return. If you were to punch someone in the eye, it does not mean that you will get punched in the eye yourself three times. No. But, sometime in the future, you may “just happen” to break a leg … something which might be considered three times as bad as being punched in the eye.

In the Witchcraft belief, then, one lifetime’s experiences are not dependent on the previous one’s. For example, if you suffer physical abuse in this life, it does not necessarily mean that you were an abuser in your previous life. It is possible you were, yes. But it is just as possible that you were not but are going to be in the next life. In other words, it is a case of experiencing all things—being both the abuser and the abusee, but one is not necessarily dependent on the other. Several lifetimes could even take place between the one experience and its apparent correlative.

Just because you have chosen a particular lifetime and are to undergo the set experiences does not mean that you can just sit back and say “Everything is preordained. I’m just along for the ride.” The God and the Goddess will make sure that you do get all the particular experiences but your job is to progress; to strive your hardest towards perfection. YOU CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY. Whatever you want, you can achieve. But always remember the Wiccan Rede: “An’ it harm none, do what thou wilt.”

 

Whenever possible, help those less fortunate than yourself. By “help” I do not mean “interfere”. Help can be given by simply offering advice; by showing compassion; even, sometimes, by actually refusing direct assistance. For, in this latter case, it is sometimes of the greatest help and to the other’s benefit to make them give a little more effort: to make them think for
themselves.

 

BETWEEN LIVES

The length of time spent between lives may vary, depending on your study of the lessons learned and their integration with previous lessons; also on the necessary preparation for the next “semester”.

 

While between lives you might also become involved in helping some other spirit here on earth. Just as there is development and advancement in this life, so there is in “the between times”. You may have heard of such things as “Guardian Angels” and “Spirit Guides” and wondered if they really exist. In a sense they do. It means that a spirit is always watching over a less developed spirit here on earth. Since time does not exist in the between-times (it is a human-made concept, for the sake of reference only) then to watch over an earth-bound spirit for its whole earthly lifetime would not actually hinder the watcher’s progress. In fact, it would add to it in the sense of gaining “student-teacher” experience.

Witches always hope that they will be reborn in the next life with those they have known and loved in this one. From psychic experiences, etc., it seems that this is often the case. Many times a couple will stay together throughout a number of lifetimes, in different relationship
roles (e.g. lovers; husband-wife; brother-sister; mother-daughter).
