From whats-your-sign.com

There’s a reason out of all the days of the week, Friday is commonly dubbed ‘date night’.  Why? Because Fridays are overseen by the angel Anael, who’s name means ‘Star of love’.  Anael is one of the angels considered to have helped with the creation of the heavens and earth.  If Anael doesn’t convince you that Fridays are for lovers, then perhaps knowing this day is ruled by Venus might give you confirmation.  Venus is symbolic of love, sensuality, creativity and relationships. Of course, love and loving isn’t exclusive to Friday. Everyday of the week is an opportunity for love.  However, Friday is most auspicious for connecting with others on a loving level.  This doesn’t mean you have to have a date, or a mate.  You can augment your intensity of love on Friday by showing affection to your pets, your family and/or your friends. You get the idea.

Ace Of Wands

The meaning of the Ace of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot

The Ace of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot represents creativity in excitement, adventure, a challenge to motivate forward with courage and confidence.

Steadily, the wand plugged into the ground. From there, it spreads out a crimson light, like the usual reactions when flint stones collide in a pile of dust, so on, inspiration also originates from that light.

The spirits and wind goblins began to leave the residence. They hide in the shape of normal light spots, not very prominent, and then, escape from leaves, nooks, boulders and the sky. There was a flash of lightning. The challenge began to be revealed. Invitations were spread everywhere at dawn.

Once being set, the fire became unstable, seemingly unpredictable and was out of control. The source of that energy, unrestrained, exploded, frantically turned into a wildfire. Let’s take this wild opportunity and shine on the intense fire.

These animals are the spirits and guardians of the Wand: fox, cat, lion. They were brilliant with the light of wisdom and prudence, dashing like an arrow flying through the world, with the fiery flames of a fierce and powerful spirit.

Keywords related to the Ace of Wands Shadowscapes Tarot: energy, inspiration, innovation, optimism, invention, trust, enthusiasm, willpower, tenacity, fertilization, creativity, conception, growth, sexuality, motivation, initiative, new project, new business, the power of fire element, a turning point, new experiences, new ideas, new start, turning ambition into action.

Celtic Ogham

From A Druid Ogham

Ioho

Grace, death, letting go, endings, rest, the beauty of decay

Tree: Yew (Taxus spp.)

Letter: Y

Ioho symbolizes the acceptance of enduring realities and legacies of the past. If you draw Ioho, look for the end of a phase or cycle. Ioho suggests you are handling or will handle the matter at hand with dignity and grace.

Modern culture has spent a great deal of time running away from the ideas of death and decay as natural, welcome processes. As a result, we have a society obsessed with launching our species into space for fear of extinction, a medical industry bent on extending life long after it has ceased to have any quality, and a fixation on youth that motivates the middle aged to undergo brutal, grisly procedures in order to look twenty. When we frame aging (not just of human beings) in a sensible way, we understand that getting old isn’t so terrible. People age and die. Technologies change. Weeks become years. Eras fade away. Letting go is for the best.

Ioho is about accepting limits gracefully. We cannot control much of what is around us or what happens to us in life, but we can control a great deal of how we perceive it and what we decide to do about it.

Though this Ogham has profound similarities to the Death card of the Tarot, like that card, 99.9 percent of the time it is not to be taken literally. Drawing Ioho does not mean you or someone in your circle is fated for immediate death. Instead, it signifies the necessary end and inevitability of all things decaying and dying. More often than not, the death process is much slower than we impatient humans are able to bear. Look for a lesson that comes from the acceptance of endings rather than literal death.

Questions when you draw Ioho:

Friday’s Spells

Friday & The Perfect Corresponding Spells

For many, Friday is the last work day of the week. It’s considered the fifth day of the work week and, also, the “cut loose” day. By Friday night, people are out having a party. That makes Friday the perfect day for lust, banish, fast-grant, and find spells. This day is so powerful (energy wise). That’s why whatever you do on this day will, usually, have a strong effect. If you want things out of your life, the darkness and power, associated with this day, bring the energy you need for that. If you need strong, immediate results, this is your day, as well.

Lust Spell – Hair on Stick Lust Spell

Items you will need:
3 strands of hair
1 comb or brush
1 small stick
1 tube of red paint
1 bottle of glue
Find a small stick and paint it red. While the paint is drying, comb through your hair and take three strands from your comb or brush. After the paint on the stick is dry, cover the stick in glue. Then, wrap the three strands of hair around the stick and let the glue dry.
Now, say this chant:
“I’ve wrapped up my passion.
I’ve wrapped up my lust.
I’m ready for it to come out.
I’m ready to trust
My desires and my will,
So the Universe can make it real.”
Put the stick under your bed, and your desires should could true.

 

Fast-Grant Spell – Money Grant Quick Spell

Items needed for this spell:
1 quarter
1 sheet of paper
1 pen or pencil
Close your eyes and think about how much money you need and how fast you need it. When you are ready, open your eyes. On the left side of the paper, trace around a quarter. Then, trace a quarter on the right side. Draw a line from one quarter to the other.
Say these words:
“Point A,
To point B
Money come fast.
Money come quickly”
Fold up the paper and put it in a coat pocket. Very soon, you should receive some money.

 

 

Find Spells – Help Me Find Spell

Items you will need:
1 small white candle
1 small blue candle
1 lighter or match
Set the two candles in front of you, close your eyes and think about what you have lost and how much you want it returned. Light both candles and say this chant three times:
“Blue candle is my love and devotion for ____________.
And how much I need ____________ back,
Safe and sound. _____________ was lost,
But I hope ________________ will be found.
White candle is for _________________’ s safe return,
While heading on my track.”
When you are done, blow out the candles. You may wake-up one morning and be shocked by the return of your lost item.

Great Refractor and Lunar Eclipse
Image Credit & Copyright: Laurie Hatch
Explanation: Rain clouds passed and the dome of the Lick Observatory’s 36 inch Great Refractor opened on November 19. The historic telescope was pointed toward a partially eclipsed Moon. Illuminated by dim red lighting to preserve an astronomer’s night vision, telescope controls, coordinate dials, and the refractor’s 57 foot long barrel were captured in this high dynamic range image. Visible beyond the foreshortened barrel and dome slit, growing brighter after its almost total eclipse phase, the lunar disk created a colorful halo through lingering clouds. From the open dome, the view of the clearing sky above includes the Pleiades star cluster about 5 degrees from Moon and Earth’s shadow.
