Sunday’s Spells

 

Finally, it’s Sunday, the official day of rest. Not only do Christians acknowledge this day, but I’m sure many pagans appreciate this day, as well. Everyone needs rest and a lot of people need a good day to worship their creator(whomever or whatever that may be), however they deem fit to do so. With the Sun being the central theme of many ancient rituals, Sunday just seems to fit, in name and theory. Not only is it a good day to worship, it seems good to do more relaxed spells, such as sleep, dream, and rebirth.

 

A Spell for While you Sleep

You will need the following items for this spell:

Four lengths of appropriately coloured ribbon
which can be easily tied
Four pins
Your bed

Knot magic has a particular effect in ‘binding’ or fixing a spell in place and with the addition of colour it is possible to use ribbons to bring about a desired outcome. By using your own bed as a focus, your magical work can be done while you sleep. This is a very personal way of working and one which can bring particularly positive results.

If your bed has bedposts, simply knot a length of the correct colour ribbon for your purpose around each post.

Each time you do this, say:

With this knot of coloured ribbon

Bring to me the power hidden. Grant me that right Throughout this night.

If your bed has no posts then carefully pin the knotted ribbon to each corner using the same words.
Each night for two further nights touch each ribbon knot in turn and repeat the words above.

Leave the ribbons in place until you no longer feel the need for them. You can expect to have some fairly vivid dreams over the following three nights, which may help you to develop the qualities you seek. This spell allows your unconscious self to work in a protected space without the chatter of day to day matters.

 

To Protect a Sleeping Mind

You will need the following items for this spell:

Voice

Sleep is the time of dreams and visits. The following incantation repeated aloud at one’s bedtime will aid in the discouraging of unwanted visitors in the dreaming mind.

Before retiring for the night, repeat the following incantation aloud:

”Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea,

Draw close and circle round

Mine mind I clear and lend to sleep.

That sleep will use to rest the weary world

Let not the world and those unfavorable things within it

Visit upon mine mind unheralded

Uninvited visitors be sent away

Turned back

Turned back to the dark depths

Turned back to the sender whose name is never spoken

That thus he may gain strength

Gain strength and threaten those unable

Unable or unknowing

Unknowing or innocent

Innocents in the world

Sleeping as I sleep

Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea

Find favor and protect mine mind

Find favor and protect the innocents”.

This is best repeated nightly so as to protect ones mind and allow peaceful sleep and promote quiet dreams.

 

To Drive Away Bad Dreams

You will need the following items for this spell:

Bowl of warm water
Salt
Your chosen sprigs of herbs
String

This spell uses herbal magick and correspondences to clear the bedroom of negative influence. It is often a good idea to use material that is easily available, so you might use sprigs of rosemary, sage, Lady’s bedstraw, maize silks or broom-corn. Since you want something taken away you should perform this magical working as the Moon wanes.

Dissolve the salt in the warm water.

Tie the herbs together.

Dip the sprigs in the water and sprinkle the corners of the room with the water.

Use the sprigs to sprinkle the salt water on your bedclothes, and particularly round the head and foot of the bed.

When you have done this, place the herbs under your pillow, or if you prefer, under the middle of the bed.

The next morning, discard the herbs at a crossroads if you can, either by burying them or allowing them to disperse to the four winds. Otherwise ensure that you have carried them well away from your home.
This carries all negativity away from your bedroom and bed. This spell uses rosemary which brings clarity, sage for wisdom, ladies bedstraw which is said to have lined the manger at Christs birth, and broom corn, which is used in worship of the Mexican goddess Chicomecohuatl. All these herbs bring cleansing, not just of the room but also of the occupants aura or subtle energy. On the basis that one should always replace negative with positive, you may like to use the following technique to bring about positive dreams.

Having prepared your environment, this next technique is of most use when there is a strong, deeply felt association with the issue or request being considered in magical terms, ideal conditions for spell working. It is like being able to consult an encyclopedia that contains a wealth of information in fact, the Higher Self.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, July 25 to Saturday, July, 31, 2021

All Signs

Astrologers interpret information not only from planetary cycles, but also from the mathematical angles between planets, which change as the planets move. (For example, angles of 60 degrees, 90 degrees, 120 degrees and 180 degrees.) This week a lovely dance between Mars and Jupiter will occur. Mars in Leo will be 180 degrees opposite Jupiter in Aquarius, which is great news! (Some textbooks call this a “lucky” time.) Admittedly, it can indicate conflict and foolish actions, especially being cocky and overestimating things. Furthermore, people will resent anything that restricts their freedom. Nevertheless, it’s definitely a feel-good time. Masks are coming off. People are hugging. “Shops must be visited! Money must be spent!”

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It will be fun city for your sign this week because this delightful opposition of Mars and Jupiter will heighten the energy of two Houses in your chart. You will demand the freedom to be yourself! You will enjoy fun activities, social outings, romantic get-togethers, sports events, picnics, restaurants, movies and playful activities with children. Your sex drive will be aroused. In all things, you will be playful and adventurous! However, you might go overboard, especially with respect to self-gratification. (You know who you are.) Don’t do anything you will later regret. Having said that, you will excel in athletics. Without question, everyone will want to be on your team!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a marvellous week to entertain at home because your energy is strong and you’re enthusiastic! You might use this high-energy for redecorating projects or doing repairs. (Naturally, you will want to show off what you’ve done to friends and family.) In fact, the boldness with which you do things at home or your ideas related to family events will impress others, especially bosses or people in authority. In some way, your actions will enhance your reputation in your world because others will see you as bold and innovative. Meanwhile, because you are on this role of creativity and exploration- you won’t take kindly to anyone who clips your wings or restricts your activities. You’re full of ideas!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Travel will appeal to you this week because you are curious, you want to learn, you want stimulation and adventure, and most importantly, you have the energy to make this happen! You’re full of big ideas, which could lead to spontaneous short trips or plans for a long trip. (Who knows?) Whatever you do this week, you will do with great enthusiasm! Those of you in sales, teaching, acting and writing will be particularly effective. You might inspire others with your enthusiasm. The only catch is you have to be aware of possibly overestimating your abilities. Do not promise more than you can deliver, which you will be tempted to do!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are enthusiastic about financial matters this week. As a rule, you are careful and cautious because you hate to squander your money. Nevertheless, this week, you’re willing to take a chance because you’re thinking big! You have ambitious moneymaking ideas, which could be about beginning a business or doing something to make money on the side. You might also contemplate a major purchase because you are now confident this is the thing to do. (No doubt you have given this a lot of thought.) Although you sometimes hesitate to act, once you decide to do so – then all bets are off. You will move forward swiftly and do exactly what you want to do. Hopefully, no regrets.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will feel the luck and excitement of the dance of Mars opposite Jupiter this week because Mars is in Leo! (Oh yes, you are part of this formula mentioned in All Signs above.). This is why you will be so enthusiastic and proactive about doing something. Because you have big ideas, it’s possible that you might overestimate something, but quite likely, you’re on target. However, you won’t want anyone to stand in your way. Your great strength this week is your ability to inspire others, especially those who are closest to you. You’re a natural leader, and when you feel enthused about something – then the world wants to jump on board as well because enthusiasm is contagious! Oh yeah!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This week most people are ready to go the whole nine yards to support something that they want to do. You might be one of the few exceptions. Of course, you feel enthusiasm and eagerness about something – that’s a fact. However, you might choose to sit back a bit and weigh your options. You are more open to seeing the folly of some “big” ideas. Remember The Honeymooners? “But Alice, this is the biggest thing I ever got into!” “Ralph, the biggest thing you ever got into was your pants.” You will assess what’s going on around you and if you trust a big idea, then you will endorse it. But if you have reservations, you will wait to see what happens when the dust settles.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This week will be full of enthusiastic interaction with friends, groups and kids. Even your romantic life will be hyped. Many of you will want to take a vacation. All of you will enjoy schmoozing with others. Competition could be a major theme, especially athletic competition. Your confidence is strong and you want to show the world what you can do. (And why not? Why hide your talents under a bushel?) Do be aware that you have the ability to inspire and enthuse others, which means if you are in charge of a group, or you are a teacher or coach, you will excel this week! Having said that, too much confidence (and certainly arrogance) are pitfalls to be avoided. Keep it real.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Without question, your ambition is aroused this week and you’re ready to go for the gold! The big influence that you feel right now is a kind of confidence that stirs you. You believe in yourself. You believe in your ideas. You believe you can achieve your dreams. Note: be careful of being overbearing with others because of your determination. It’s important to be self-aware and realize that we all have limitations including you. Nevertheless, others might be amazed at the timing of your actions and your success. Of course, Scorpios have tremendous willpower and determination, which is why they can achieve the impossible. Good luck!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a marvellous week for you because your ruler is Jupiter and Jupiter is one of the planets involved in this lovely dance that I mentioned in All Signs above. This means all aspects of your energy will be increased and magnified this week. (Naturally, you will resent anything that narrows your freedom or limits your scope of action.) You will be optimistic! You’ll be up for anything! You will feel brave, courageous even reckless. Be cautious about overestimating your abilities or biting off more than you can chew. Nevertheless, your physical strength will be revitalized and your efforts at most tasks will be successful. Certainly, you want to travel and see the world!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

When it comes to financial matters this week, especially related to shared property, jointly-held possessions or the wealth and resources of someone else – you are confident. Big time! You have ambitious ideas about how to deal with things so that everyone is happy, especially you. (Remember: Good business is mutually beneficial.) If you are in a dispute with someone about an inheritance or some aspect of shared responsibilities or shared property, you will come out laughing all the way to the bank. In part, this is due to your confidence and the fact that others believe in you because you exude such confidence and assurance and the appearance of success. And of course, appearances are everything.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an interesting week for you because lucky Jupiter is in your sign and it is being energized by fiery Mars sitting directly opposite. This will affect your closest relationships and partnerships. You might have big ideas about how to improve a relationship or nurture it in a new direction. Or possibly, your partner or friend has the same idea? Or perhaps you will meet someone new who amazes you with their ambition and big ideas? You are always open-minded, especially about modern, cutting-edge ideas, which means you are ready to endorse any impressive idea that comes your way. One thing is certain: this week you have the confidence to assert yourself in your closest relationships. Let’s hope this makes things work more smoothly?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Plan on a super productive week because you are hot to trot! You will have lots of energy to work. In fact, you will be almost tireless in your devotion and determination to get something done. Even you will be amazed at how much energy you have. Nevertheless, do not coerce others or be domineering or overbearing in any way. Just do your thing and let others be amazed. Work-related travel is likely for many of you. Not only will you work hard at your job this week, but whatever you do will expand your world in some way. Those of you who are recuperating from any kind of an injury or operation or health problem will have strong healing powers this week. Be grateful.

July 25th Daily Correspondence Digest

Daily Horoscope

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 7 PM to 11:45 PM EDT today (4 PM to 8:45 PM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Power struggles with a family member, especially in older relative or parent, might take place today. These are generally unpleasant and ironically, they often accomplish nothing. Avoid these because they also could be the beginning of a smouldering conflict that lasts.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Although you might be obsessed about an idea today, lighten up and don’t try to make others agree with you. We all have different views about practically everything. Resist your urge to convince others to “see the light.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Money issues will be important to you today. Or possibly, it’s something to do with a possession that you own? Either way, you intend to stand your ground and demand your fair share. Or perhaps you want someone else to agree with you?

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today Mercury in your sign is opposite big daddy Pluto. This can help you to get to the bottom of a problem. However, more likely, you will end up in an intellectual conflict of wills with someone, especially a partner or close friend. This is not good. (The friendship is more important than being right.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today hidden information, perhaps even a secret might come to light. More likely, research will reveal hidden data about answers to old questions or solutions to old problems. A historical search could reveal something. This is what you have been looking for!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might encounter someone today who is quite pushy. They might want to indoctrinate you or others into their way of thinking, or perhaps they want you to join an organization? Be careful not to get talked into doing something you don’t really believe in.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today a boss, parent or someone in a position of authority might throw their weight around and try to beat their drum so that everyone follows their path. Or perhaps they have a grievance to air? Quite likely, this is just a lot of sound and noise to get attention. You don’t have to agree with anyone.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Resist the urge to proselytize and convince others to agree with your beliefs about politics, religion or racial issues because this is what you might be tempted to do today. There’s no point in browbeating others to follow your ideas. Lighten up. Live and let live.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Squabbles about shared property or how to divide or share an inheritance or a certain amount of money might arise today. Disputes about borrowing something might also arise. Tread carefully because this is an argumentative day for many people. Stay chill.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A conversation with a partner or close friend will be intense today. You might feel verbally attacked because someone is intent on making you see their way or agree to their way of thinking. Possibly, you are the person being aggressive about your views?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You always want to make the world a better place. Today you might be so excited about introducing reforms, especially to your work place, that you are actually overbearing. This generally doesn’t work. There are none so deaf as those who are wearing headphones.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Power struggles with kids might take place today. Remember who’s the adult and who’s the child. A power struggle with a child is just a naked power play – don’t do it. However, power struggles between romantic partners are also likely. Oops.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Matt LeBlanc (1967) shares your birthday today. You are a sensitive, spiritual person with humanitarian values. You are also playful, fun-loving, warm and friendly.

Birthday Horoscope Zodiac Sign Is Leo

JULY 25 birthday horoscope predicts that you are someone special. You have special skills that are not common such as your interest in science or technological stuff. You pamper your loved ones and care for them.

You seem to enjoy things that challenge your knowledge and talents. Also, you could be a thorough person. Those born on this day are likely to be detailed, intuitive and responsible individuals.

As a Leo in love, you would never know it as you keep those feelings to yourself. In a committed relationship, you will never share everything, as some things should remain private, you feel. Nevertheless, the July 25 horoscope predicts that you are a Lion who is vigilant and distant even with your friends.

The July 25th birthday personality characteristics suggest that you are a cheerful Lion who has a great sense of humor, the gift of gab but you are respected. As an adult, you remain playful but mysterious.

Yes, you have everyone’s curiosity up wondering what is beneath your surface. It is a spiritual thing, and some would not understand. Those born on this birthday July 25 tend to see the best in all humans.

Perhaps, they have an idealistic opinion of people and the world. This quality also has its negative side, as you can be disappointed when it comes to imperfect people. With this in mind, it is hard for you to hold a grudge.

This Leo, according to the July 25 astrology, is normally doting, very attractive and alluring. However, this Lion can roar with jealousy as you have a possessive quality as well. You are very close to your family, but you love your independence as much as you do your family.

It is not typical that this Leo birthday person will settle down early on. You will be sure of your feelings before doing that. You may date someone for an extended period. Hopefully, you can commit to someone special, honest and giving.

Additionally, the Leo will be home most of the time so you can expect to enjoy the simple pleasures such as entertaining and showing off your home. The 25th July birthday meanings predict that after everyone has gone, you will find yourself full of energy, as your last performance will be the climax of the evening.

The money you make as a manager was certainly a good career move for you. Those of you are born today on July 25, like having responsibility. You have a lot of talents and skills that could be used by many places or departments. You are a true leader.

However, you may find that working for yourself allows you more freedom and brings in a good profit. The Leo that is too generous will soon find a bank account balance that is slowly dissipating. Be careful, as you cannot fix the world financially. You work too hard for your money to give it away.

The July 25 birthday personality report shows that this Leo is usually in decent health. However, you do not like to exercise or do you eat healthily. Not once do you think about what you are doing to your body? You are busy, I get that, but you can take small efforts to increase your health score.

For example, instead of going to the fast food joint, enjoy a sit-down meal from the special menu. There are plenty of delicious, healthy meals around 500 or so calories that most restaurants offer today. It certainly costs about the same amount of money, too. You could park your car at the end of the parking lot rather than closest to the door. Little things like this can make a big difference in the end.

The July 25th zodiac predictions show that you could be a geek as you are interested in scientific escapades and technical matters. You are close to your family, but mainly, you want to enjoy the company of someone who is loyal and honest such as yourself.

Those born on this day are Lions who give a lot but perhaps too generous as you may find yourself going deep into your pockets to help other people. While you are quick to help other people, you typically neglect your health.

July 25th Daily Divination Journal

TAROT

Today’s Tarot card reading comes from The Celtic Dragon Tarot by D. J. Conway. With art done by Lisa Hunt. This deck is unique as the cards are never read in reverse. Copyright 2001

General

Temperance – 14 in Major Arcana

New perspectives.

Pages 40 to 41

In perfect harmony, three dragons coil and turn through the skies, weaving strands of spiritual energy with their claws. The sky itself holds repeating patterns of spirals, symbolizing the primal matter of creation-destruction that is all around us. One dragon is blue; another is shades of red; the third , shades of green. Red symbolizes vibrant life energies and sexual drive; green the productiveness of the mind; blue, the watery instability of emotion. All these must be twined together in equal parts in order to temper and modify life experiences, so that what is out of balance (intemperate) can be corrected. An elongated, golden lemniscate (a figure eight) of eternal life twine through the spinning circle of dragons, representing that a balanced life cannot exist without the important element of spirit.

Divinatory Meaning: This card may presage a period of creative inspiration, or a time of harmony and peacefulness. Self-control and inner guidance will get you through difficulties. A trip gives you a new perspective on an old issue. You need to atapt to new circumstances.  

Love

Two of Swords

Pages 88 to 89

A Fire dragon holds two long swords in its claws, as it faces a man across an opening, blazing vent in the rocky ground. The only connection to the other side is a narrow bridge without railings. The man hesitates, one foot on the bridge, one foot on solid ground. One of his hands are outstretched to take a sword, but he must cross to get one. Celtic spirals are craved into the stark stones of the surrounding landscape. The bridge represents the link between the conscious and subconscious minds. The tenuous area of the mind can be a frightening place when one is learning to join the psychic senses with everyday, common-sense deductions in order to make better decisions. The only way to cross the bridge is to walk across without analyzing the potential for defeat or looking down at the dangerous fires below. The strength to take action can be drawn from knowledge of the meaning of the Celtic spirals; any momentary failure can be a stepping stone to a new opportunity.

Divinatory Meaning: There is tension and indecision in relationships or friendships. You are having difficulty gaining a sense of balance because you have no definite plans to the direction you want to go. You are faced with having to balance two important things in life without being able to make a firm decision. 

Health

Eight of Wands

Movement; urgency.

Pages 72 to 73

Eight dragons fly across a deep, mysterious void of a cosmic sky, each one holding a crystal-topped wand. Starlight flashes of the crystal tips of the wand. The star are spiritual beacons that guide those who journey through life. Oftentimes, those on a real life journey as if they are in a bottomless void, no direction to guide them out of the situation. This is the time to call upon your personal dragon guardians, look within for spiritual direction, and use your willpower (wand) to find your way to your goal.

Divinatory Meaning: Barriers fall and events move quickly. Urgent messages of a positive nature come your way. You may take a journey; possibly by air. 

Wealth

Six of Pentacles

Just rewards

Pages 152 to 153

A large dragon holds out a claw filled with coins to an old man with a cane. Beside the dragon, a little girl in tattered clothing hugs the dragon. The unlimited forces of the Universe work on the constant balancing of positive and negative. All we need do is seek and ask for the help we need. The child represents the hidden seed of trust and confidence within each of us that leads to a new cycle, even though we may be in the midst of sorrow. The child is completely unafraid of universal forces, subconsciously understanding that trust brings help and answers to our problems. Six pentacles can be seen on the cobblestones, leading from the struggling man to the glowing dragon.

URUZ VIKING RUNE – MANHOOD

The rune is an indication of the new phase beginning in a person’s life and the termination of the old one. The rune symbolizes the future changes that are yet to happen in the night. It speaks of ending one part of life and how a man goes out of his childhood frame. This means it must be left behind to attain manhood.

Meanings: This is a rune of difficulty and negative influences will rule your life for a time, but as all difficulties are a learning experience it will lead to improved personal perspective and progress on your life’s path. Always consult the surrounding runes with this stone. If it lies with a positive stone it indicates that the pain of this experience will lead to a beneficial change in circumstances.

Tinne/Teine

T stands for Tinne, or Teine, the Holly tree. This evergreen plant is connected to immortality, unity, courage, and the stability of hearth and home. Pronounced chihnn-uh by the Celts, the wood of the Holly was often used in the construction of weapons, and is known as a plant of warriors and protectors.

In the pre-Christian British Isles, the Holly was often associated with protection–planting a hedge around your home would keep malevolent spirits out, thanks in no small part to the sharp spikes on the leaves. In Celtic myth, the concept of the Holly King and the Oak King symbolizes the changing of the seasons, and the transition of the earth from the growing time to the dying season.

When Christianity moved into the Celtic lands, the new religion associated the Holly plant with the story of Jesus. The poky spikes on the leaves represent the crown of thorns worn by Jesus on the cross, and the bright red berries symbolize his blood.

Tinne Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Hang a sprig of Holly in your home to protect your family in your absence. Soak the leaves in spring water under a full moon, and then use the water as a blessing for people or items you wish to protect. There is strength to be found in standing together, and ultimately protection comes from honor and trust.

Magical Aspects: Develop the ability to respond quickly and wisely to your intuition. Learn to overcome and adapt to new situations, and to respond immediately to changes in your spiritual environment. Trust your instinct, but don’t let your heart rule over your head.
