A Thought for Today

Dear Sisters, Brothers, and Honored Guests today I leave you with this thought…

One thing I would like to add to Frank Lloyd Wright’s quote is

Anywhere you go the forests, water ways, or a walk around your block take a bag with you for trash. As Pagans, which first meant peasant but as evolve to mean people who follow nature’s spiritual paths, it is our duty to pick up what others were to lazy to dispose of properly. I started out doing this on my own as my children grew old enough to take a walk outside with me and than doing the same with my grandchildren. Who passed it on to their playmates and still do it even with some of my grandchildren being over 20, a couple in college, and the others starting in grammar or pre-school. So I ask you not to think of Earth Day is only on April 22 but as it being every day of the week.

Blessed be dear ones.

Ancient Rome A superstitious Society

From HistoryCooperative.org – To read the rest of the article about Omens and Superstations

A superstitious Society

Compare to modern society, the Romans seem extremely superstitious. But then today’s major religions have all throughout their past discouraged, even combatted, superstitions. Also our sciences and our technological world allows little room for superstition.

The Romans lived in an era previous to this. Their world was full of unexplained phenomena, darkness and fear. To Romans these superstitions were a perfectly natural part in the relationship between gods and men.

The Roman habit of interpreting natural phenomena as signs from the beyond stemmed from the Etruscans. The Etruscans, who developed reading omens and auspices into a form of science, knew different means of divination. In their beliefs the signs they read were sent to them by a mythical boy called Tages, who in their mythology was to have been ploughed up from the earth.

They would seek to read the future by examining the entrails of sacrificial animals, the liver being of special importance for that purpose. They would observe lighting and interpret its meanings. And they would try and put meaning to any unusual phenomena which occured.

The belief that objects, or living beings could possess special spiritual properties was widespread in primitive societies. The Romans were no strangers to this idea. Stones, trees, springs, caves, lakes, swamps, mountains – even animals and furniture – were all deemed to be hosts to spirits (numina). Stones in particular were often seen to contain spirits, especially if they were boundary stones, dividing one man’s property from the other.

It is very telling that the Latin word for such a boundary is terminus and that there actually was a Roman god called Terminus. This odd deity took the form of a huge piece of rock which rested in the temple of Jupiter on the Capitoline Hill. Apparently several attempts to move the bolder when…

Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondences for Monday

Daily Quote

From LearnReligions.com

Monday is the day of the moon itself, and it’s a day that’s connected to lunar colors like silver, white, or even a pale blue.

Metals and gemstones like silver, pearl, opal, and moonstone all come into play today.

There are plenty of deities associated with the moon—Thoth and Diana for instance

Herbal correspondences include many members of the mint family. Utilize wintergreen or peppermint, as well as catnip, comfrey, sage, and chamomile in your workings.

When it comes to Monday magic, because of that lunar connection, it’s a good time to focus on workings related to childbearing and family life, purity and virginity, healing, wisdom, and intuition. Do a little bit of self-exploration and work on developing your intuition—learn to trust your gut. Celebrate birth and life, and make some magic to fix what is broken.

Guided Meditations for this Monday…

From A Pagan Mess

Planet: Moon
Element: Water
Colors: Silver, White, Blue, Grey
Keywords: Illusions, Divination, Glamour, Peace, Dreams, Emotions, Insight, Wisdom

Mondays are great for anything dreamy or connected to the non-physical. The energy of the moon is generally softer and about illusion and things we can’t always seen. It is also great for connecting with emotions and gaining insight through things like divination. The gentle energy of Mondays also make them a great day to adjust any workings you have in progress that may need revisions.

Travel is one of the keys to expanding your horizons. As the October 25 birthday zodiac sign is Scorpio, you are sensible and have the philosophy that you will be rewarded for your good and bad deeds.

If one has this Scorpio birthday person as their lover, then they should be in for a real treat. On the surface, one would think that all you’re interested in is sex. However, this is not all together the truth although you have a tendency to be controlling.

It’s important to you and to most relationships but your needs lie within the person and to commitment. It’s only human to be attracted to other “beautiful” people but you only think about the possibility of being with someone else momentarily. In order for this zodiac birthday person to be fully satisfied in a relationship, the partner must be able to meet both physical and mental requirements.

As a introvert, you keep to yourself mainly, show your birthday characteristics. You may have friends but they are few. You have a tendency to be nosy… wanting to talk about everybody’s business but your own. You know a lot of stuff but you should be wise enough to know not to divulge other people’s secrets.

Because people confide in you, you don’t have to learn too much by trial and error. You expect your friends to keep your confidences when you do open up, so be loyal to them and you should expect the same from them.

The October 25 birthday astrology predicts that this Scorpio’s health is pretty good. But you could have problems relating to stress and its side effects. You should have a friend or friends to confess your innermost thoughts. Go to them and tell them how you feel. Releasing some of the anger and hurt would do you a world of good. Stress has its way of eating at your body and it can have a bearing on your attitude and your energy. It is suggested that you learn how to manage your feelings.

Additionally, the 25 October birthday horoscope predicts that your eating habits and exercise practices could use some work as well. Watch out for those foods high in calories, starches, and sugar. Red meat is on your list as a favorite but should be eaten in moderation and chewed thoroughly. Those are the foods you should stay away from.

Overall, the October 25 birthday meanings suggest that you are people who are willing to make compromises to get what they want. You are business savvy and know that you may have to take a few risks. People born on October 25 are no strangers to success but want to be larger than life.

You are not accustomed to “no” as an answer. Most of the time, you turn it into a “yes.” However, you will not tolerate betrayal on any level. You demand loyalty and dedication from your family, friends and business associates.

The October 25 birthday personality don’t forget who wrong them and usually, one can expect repercussions because of it.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Andromeda Galaxy

The most distant object that most folks can see with the unaided eye is also the closest major galaxy to our own Milky Way. Although the Andromeda Galaxy lies a mind-bending 2.5 million light-years from Earth, its trillion stars are enough to emit a strong glow across the vast reaches of space. Despite the wide gap, the Milky Way and Andromeda are on a collision course and predicted to begin merging in roughly 4.5 billion years. (You’ve been warned.)

The Andromeda Galaxy was once thought to be a nebula. Early in the development of modern astronomy, any diffuse, undefined celestial body was called a ‘nebula,’ including what we now know to be a neighboring galaxy. Our modern definition of nebula refers to galaxies-in-training that will coalesce over cosmic time into something less…nebulous.
