Daily Cosmic Calendar for May 13th

While a new grand triangle in earth signs takes effect—thanks to the moon in Virgo forming trines to Mercury in Taurus (7:49 a.m.) and Saturn in Capricorn (7:40 p.m.), potentially offering gains on the business front—Mercury making a tense, 45-degree tie to Mars (9:01 a.m.) and the sun linking up to Jupiter via an off-kilter, 150-degree aspect (11:29 a.m.) are more likely to create obstacles to forward progress.

The moon’s monthly opposition to Neptune (4:15 p.m.) and Pallas square Juno (10:46 p.m.) add to the shadowy vibes, while the moon parallel Venus (1:12 p.m.) and the sun trine to Pluto (8:08 p.m.) play encouraging roles. Find time to stock up on cereals, grains, veggies, fruit, tea, nuts, seeds, and seasonings.

Merry Meet Brothers & Sisters of the Craft on this Monday, May 13

We dedicate this poem to our Lady of the Abyss this morning…..

Amazing Grace
Amazing grace, how sweet the Earth
that bore a witch like me!
I once was burned, now I survive,
was hung and now I sing.

T’was grace that drew down the moon
and grace that raised the seas.
The magic in the people’s will
will set our Mother free.

We face the East and breathe the winds
that move across this earth.
From gentle breeze to hurricane
our breath will bring forth the change.

Turn towards the South and feel the fire
that burns in you and me.
The spirit’s flame will rise again
and burn eternally.

We greet the West, our souls awash
in tides of primal birth.
Our tears and blood, our pain and love
will cleanse and heal the earth.

Reach into the North and know your roots
down deep ancestral caves.
We find the wisdom of the Crone,
Of circles we are made.

Amazing earth, enduring life,
from death into rebirth.
T’is earth I am and earth I love
and earth I’ll always be.

Amazing grace, how sweet the Earth
that bore witches like we.
We once were burned, now we survive,
were hung and now we sing.

Goddess bless, so mote it be,
Our magic spirals on.
Merry meet and merry part
and merry meet again.
