Fawn health is very bad right now she can use healing energy, and/or candles being lit for her health improve, and/or just you thinking of her being up and around and feeling better.

Now without further ado here in Fawn’s own words, with no editing done by me, is her first part of her on going story:

Merry meet kindred souls, and welcome! If you have tripped across this blog , know that it is not by chance. I believe and innately know nothing happens by chance. Everything has a divine purpose . There are no coincidences in life, only synchronicity‘s guiding us down our path. Here on this blog I will share my story! With it, I hope to inspire your mind, warm your hesrt, and enlighten your spirit.

First let me introduce myself, I am Forest Devi. As long as I can remember i have been drawn out into the woods almost as if enchanted by. I have spent my life rescuing & sometimes raising different orphaned woodland creatures. And I have always had a great fondness for all things furry! Nature is my church where I’ve always found serenity. It has taking me many years and peeling back many layers to discover who I really am.

Which brings us to today, here on Witches of the Craft. It was several years ago and I somehow tripped across WOTC . Intrigued, I signed up to receive their daily posts . Following Lady Abyss who was very passionate about witches of the craft . It wasn’t until after she passed, & Lady Beltane took over that I developed the courage to study here as a novice . This clearly was my path!  Now I am currently knee-deep into my novice course on witchcraft. I feel blessed to be studying under Lady Beltane, whom I hold in very high regard. And filled with gratitude to be handed down her knowledge & tricks of the trade! She’s been by my side every step of the way. And thank goodness! Because If it wasn’t for that WHO would fix my magickal mishaps? let’s face it… The “Oops now what?”😳 is going to happen

Yes! I am still a work in progress. Not only as a witchlett, but also on healing my body! I have multiple sclerosis and that’s what brought me here! It was definitely a catalyst for my awakening . Six years ago my doctor told me bluntly, “you will eventually be bedridden and die from this.” At that point I decided to heal myself. There was no other option …and I wasn’t READY to lay down and die. And so began my spiritual quest! THATS when the magick started to really take place!

So join me , sisters and brothers as I perform what doctors say is the Impossible & reclaim vibrant health! While behind the scenes studying here as a novice on WOTC! I know NOTHING is impossible , the word itself says I’m possible! Plus I have a few tricks up my sleeve.

Moral to the story here never give up! So buckle up, & fly with me!
It’s gonna be a bumpy ride… but the destination is WELL WORTH iT! We will talk soon my lovelies.
Blessed be ,
Forest Devi🐈‍⬛✨

Beltane – Spring is Here! Time to Get Your Gardens Ready

Welcome to springtime in the southern hemisphere. As the warmer weather comes a witches thoughts turns to sowing a garden. A garden can mean a different thing to each of us. For me it is getting my physical seeds ready for my veggie garden, to check to see if my herbs survived the winter or if I need to start new ones. Spiritually it means starting new seeds/paths for me to be able to grow to be closer to Mother Earth, the Universal energies, my students, and my teachers. To be able in the fall to reap full benefits of all that I have learned and put them into practice whether it is in my own personal life or helping my students with something. This year I need to plant new seeds and seedlings for all my flower gardens because early heavy rains in this part of the country washed away two inches of top soil in all my flower beds.

What does planting a garden mean to you? Do you plant flowers, vegetables, herbs, goals or a little of all of these or any combination? Remember whatever you plant will come to fruition with the right amount of love, watering (spiritually this can be communicating with each other in the pagan community or even be emailing me to say hi), sunshine (remember to thank the Sun God) and nurturing from within yourself (positive thoughts and affirmations) and from others in our community.

I would really LOVE to SEE COMMENTS on this post, please. Share with us your seeds and lets us help you grow them to their fullest potential!

Calling Your Ancestors

I am blessed to work with to Archangel Suriel (a.k.a. Sariel), who helps people and other
living things that are stuck on this plain, for whatever reason, to accept their death and get
ready to cross to the Spirit Plane. I also work with Archangel Zlar, who crosses the Spirits from this plain to the
next The Spirit Plain is known by the name The Summerlands to many Witches and Wiccans.

In simpler terms, I am a medium an ability I was honored enough to be born with.I have to keep permanent protection shields up all the time so I can eat, sleep and live life without constantly hearing the voices of Spirits wanting to pass a message on to someone. While I am very grateful for the honor of the Archangels using me for this task; if I leave myself open all the time it can become unbearable to live with.

Many people are born with or are given this “gift” but do not know they have it or choose to ignore it. If someone ignores it just like any other talent not used it will wither and become dormant. If you may think you have this gift it can come to you in many ways. Some of which are: hearing voices, seeing someone/something out of the corner of your eye and when you turn your head no one is there, having consistent dreams of people who have crossed over (died) are the most common signs of this ability. One thing to always remember is if you have this ability that it is the Archangels mentioned above using you to help with their work and it is an honor to have this gift and yes, it can feel like a curse at times also..

This is spell can be used anytime you would like an Ancestor to visit or just on Samhain. I have written it two
different ways, one to invite them anytime you would like them near, and the other for on
Samhain (Pronounced Sow-en. Falls on October 31st when the veil between ours and the
Spirit plain is at its thinnest.).

Many covens set aside a portion of time during their Samhain celebration for members to call their ancestors into the circle to feast and celebrate with them. How this part of the Samhain celebration and ritual is done varies from coven to coven based on how the leader chooses to do it.

I found that I preferred even when I was with a coven that I liked talking and visiting with my ancestors alone. No special reason just personal preference.

What you need:

1 Birthday or short Candle for each Ancestor

A container with sand in it (I use an old metal pie plate)

Hot pad (to set container on to protect surface of what you set pie plate on)

Spell for any time use:

I invite _____ (fill in name of person you wish to contact) to come visit when I light this
candle one.

To visit and return to whence you came when your candle is done.

So mote it be.

Spell for Samhain:

I invite the Spirits I call upon to come to me one by one. (Light 1 candle each time you say
a name and place it in the sand)

Visit and return from whence you came when your candle is done.

So mote it be

After doing the spell spend some time just sitting quietly and thinking of the people you have summoned. They may just want to spend some time with you also and/or have a message for you or someone in your life. Ancestors are not just blood relatives that have crossed over they include anyone in your life that has had some type of impact on it. One of my favorite people to spend time with is an oil painting teacher I had when I was twelve years old. She was a very patient and sweet woman who help me through painting deal with my father’s crossing.

October 30 Astronomy Picture of the Day

A Rorschach Aurora

Image Credit & Copyright: Göran Strand

Explanation: If you see this as a monster’s face, don’t panic. It’s only pareidolia, often experienced as the tendency to see faces in patterns of light and shadow. In fact, the startling visual scene is actually a 180 degree panorama of Northern Lights, digitally mirrored like inkblots on a folded piece of paper. Frames used to construct it were captured on a September night from the middle of a waterfall-crossing suspension bridge in Jamtland, Sweden. With geomagnetic storms triggered by recent solar activity, auroral displays could be very active at planet Earth’s high latitudes in the coming days. But if you see a monster’s face in your own neighborhood tomorrow night, it might just be Halloween.

October 30 Daily Correspondence Digest for the Northern Hemisphere’s Moon Phase and Planetary Positions

 

You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else, you know was on the date the person was born.

From Moongiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Visit the October 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waning Crescent Phase

The Waning Crescent on October 30 has an illumination of 33%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On October 30 the Moon is 23.74 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

The 8 Lunar Phases

There are 8 lunar phases the Moon goes through in its 29.53 days lunar cycle. The 4 major Moon phases are Full Moon, New Moon, First Quarter and Last Quarter. Between these major phases, there are 4 minor ones: the Waxing Crescent, Waxing Gibbous, Waning Gibbous and Waning Crescent. For more info on the Moon Cycle and on each phase check out Wikipedia Lunar Phase page.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 3 AM to 2:30 PM EDT today (midnight to 11:30 AM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Leo into Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a tricky day dealing with authority figures – parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs and the police. You are better off keeping a low profile and saying nothing because hey, you have to know when to hold and when to fold. Today the odds are tough.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

A discussion with a partner or close friend is challenging today. This is why this is a poor day to oppose authority figures or traditional ways of doing things. Sometimes it’s right to do this – sometimes it just won’t work.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Steer clear of philosophical, idealistic issues, related to politics, religion and racial matters today. Consensus is not possible. People will butt heads. Knowing this, be cool and realize this is not the day to make an issue of things. Timing is everything.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might face challenges dealing with kids today. Likewise, social occasions or something to do with sports might be cancelled or changed because of rules and regulations. This is often a disappointing situation – but it happens. Patience.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Family discussions will be challenging today because relatives or traditional ways of doing things might be inflexible. This means you have to go along to get along. Sometimes you can change things; but sometimes you have to accept what is. This is one of those days.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you’re keen to enlighten others about your ideas. You have errands, appointments and short trips to consider. Nevertheless, responsibilities with your job, your health or a pet will limit your options. Just cope with dignity and patience. (Be an adult.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Very often our dreams and wishes are limited by our finances. We have champagne ideas on a beer wallet. You might encounter this today. Activities with kids, a social outing or sports events will be limited because of insufficient funds or high costs. Welcome to the club – we number millions. (We can’t afford jackets.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the Sun is in your sign at odds with stern Saturn. This means you don’t have complete freedom to act. Responsibilities, limitations, or rules and regulations can’t be ignored, especially responsibilities related to home and family. It is what it is.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Freedom and physical activity are survival issues for you. You need to get outdoors every day and fly your colours! Today, something going on behind the scenes might limit your ability to do what you want. (This is just a temporary dark cloud on your horizon.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A friend or a member of a group might do or say something that you feel is restrictive. Your options are limited. Perhaps you can’t do what you want? We all face limitations and restrictions because that’s what happens when you live in a big tribe called society. It goes with the territory.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a poor day to challenge parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs or the police because they will have the law on their side. Knowing this ahead of time, don’t even go there. Choose another day, another time, another place. Patience.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today you might be limited by the law, rules and regulations or customs related to religion and social issues. Because of this, your freedom might be restricted. However, this is a temporary thing. Today you have to accept it. On another day, you can make a stand.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Michael Beach (1963) shares your birthday today. You are multitalented and a fast learner. You read between the lines and know what’s going on. This year is the last year of a nine-year cycle, which means it’s time for you to wrap things up and let go of what is no longer relevant in your life. You want to be free to begin a new cycle next year!

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS OCTOBER 30, you are a Scorpion who loves to learn. Life’s lessons come in many forms and not just by observing can you learn all of them. More often than not, you should be a participant. Those of you born today are highly sensitive and passionate.

Yes… you have a cool exterior but you can be roused. Depending on what’s going on, this could be a good thing. Everyone should be passionate about something. It’s only when you fall short of being perfect, do you pout.

The 30th of October birthday personality have a tendency to work all the time. You could use a treat. Why not take your family on a road trip. This could be fun as it helps you to connect with your family. You, as do so many others, stay at home and take care of your offspring. Too bad there’s no award for that.

The October 30 birthday horoscope shows that you are composed and even refined. The truth of the matter is that you are highly responsive. You mainly are concentrating on your money and how to make some more. You feel that you have got to be on top of things at all times.

This Scorpio birthday generally don’t settle for second best. You want top shelf or nothing at all. It’s your prerogative. Besides, you work for what you want out of life. There’s nothing wrong with being successful and living a comfortable lifestyle.

If today October 30 is your birthday, you have an adventurous side to you that people admire. As someone born on this day, you love to travel and to familiarize yourself with other cultures. It’s a part of learning and you like to have hands on experience.

As the October 30th zodiac sign is Scorpio, you are generally smart individuals but should listen more to your instincts. You have a sixth sense that will guide you in some decisions but only if you let it.

Undeniably, the October 30 birthday personality is someone who’s incredibly attractive, flexible and capable. More than anything, you want your freedom. You are not likely to be happy without it. You have a need to create and usually, your muse will come in quiet times. Communication with others may come with ease but occasionally, you are moody and your attitudes will change in a heartbeat.

In love, you tend to be idealistic, sensitive but strong. You don’t like your business in the streets either… you’re a private person. Therefore, public display of affection could be considered a no-no. However, you in a direct and more private setting can be a force to be reckoned with. Those born on October 30 are people who want and enjoy the constitution of marriage.

What your birthday says about you is that you’re certainly a fun person to be around. You are witty and playful. Being around your friends and family gives you joy and pleasure. You don’t expect much from them and this seems to be the key to bonding with them. Typically, you are not judgmental. The only drawback to this is that you can be overly protective. Then we see another side of the calculated scorpion.

You may feel that learning comes from all different directions and school can’t teach you everything. You believe that you can go at it on your own. It’s not necessary for you to fulfill the American dream of a white picket fence, spouse, children and a dog to be successful. For you, personal satisfaction comes in occupations that allow you to communicate. Careers like writing, speaking and television could be your ticket to the high road, foretells the 30 October birthday astrology.

Your health is normally easy to maintain as you like growing your own food. You stick to a diet that is high in fiber and protein but low in calories. As a norm, you do a body cleanse to rid yourself of daily toxins put in by pollutants in the air and by the additives in your drink and food when you can’t eat right. However, when it comes to going to the gym and working out, this is not your style. You like to be active but usually, it’s not by physical exercise.

The October 30 is birthday meanings show that you are perceptive, compliant, and charismatic. You could be a curious soul however, you love to learn. Learning, you feel, is not just textbook calculations but real life situations. You love with such an intensity that you can’t be denied the lusty pleasures you so dream of. As a Scorpio born on this day, you are not especially fond of the classroom.
