All Signs

Monday is Valentine’s Day. Sometimes astrological influences are lovely for this day; sometimes not so much. Unfortunately, this week, relationships are tense. Leo is the sign that typifies the theatricality of Valentine’s Day – flowers, sentimental cards, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and special gifts. But there is a Full Moon in Leo on Wednesday. Aggh! Take heart. Although problems always intensify as the Full Moon approaches, after it peaks, these same problems diminish or disappear. Meanwhile, this week the Sun changes signs, ushering in a very different vibe. By the end of the week, starry eyed, swooning energy, romance and sweetness will thrive! Therefore, adjust your expectations for the beginning of the week because by the end of the week, all is well. (“Did you want that gift wrapped?”)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your personal year is coming to an end, but your new year won’t begin until your birthday. This means that in the next four weeks, you’re sort of in limbo. You will still schmooze with others, especially younger people. Venus and your ruler Mars at the top of your chart will make you look good to others, especially bosses, parents and teachers. And Mars will continue to rev your ambitions. Therefore, you will happily handle this low-key journey. However, be smart and use this window of time to write down some goals for your new year ahead. Goals work! They keep you on track and make it harder to kid yourself.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

In the next four weeks, you’ll be more popular. To the extent that you are able, schmooze with friends and get involved with groups and organizations. (You might do this in person or on-line.) Some of you will strike up a romance with someone “different.” While you’re busy talking to others, remember to share your hopes for the future because someone’s feedback will help you. Meanwhile, you want to travel or make travel plans. Mars and Venus are in a part of your chart that makes you want to expand your world, learn new things and seek adventure. If you can’t travel, then make an effort to learn more through courses, school, reading or watching documentaries. You need a change of scenery!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Ta da! Once a year, the Sun sits at the top of your chart for four weeks, which is a wonderful benefit for you because this thrusts you into a flattering spotlight. This means bosses, parents and people in authority admire you, even if you don’t do anything special. (It’s smoke and mirrors.) Please be aware that in the next four weeks, you have this wonderful advantage! Obviously, this is the time to make your pitch or advance your agenda. Meanwhile, both Mars and Venus are in one of your Money Houses, encouraging resources and money to come your way. You will more easily get a loan or a mortgage. This is a fortuitous window of time for you. Use it!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Grab every chance to broaden your horizons in the next four weeks. Seek out new and unfamiliar experiences. Travel if you can. Explore hobbies. Discuss philosophy, religion and politics because intellectual stimulation will interest you. Obviously, travel will be exciting. With Venus opposite your sign, relations with others are smooth. However, Mars opposite your sign might indicate conflict with others, especially someone who is closest to you. Remember to focus more on what you share with this person instead of your differences. You must share a lot – or how else did they get so close to you?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will feel more passionately about everything (including intimacy) in the next four weeks, which is why certain compulsions might surface. You might feel obsessed about something, especially getting your own way. You might also feel obsessed about being right. Well, these are just ego trips, aren’t they? What’s really going on is that you want to experience life at a more feeling, passionate level. Conversations are not enough. Words, words, words. You want to experience something more deeply. Some of you might meet someone who provokes psychological self-inquiry in you. “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The Sun is opposite your sign for the next four weeks. This happens only once a year and when it does, it means that symbolically, the Sun is as far away from you as it can get all year, and since the Sun is your source of energy – you will need more sleep. Furthermore, this polarized position of the Sun to your sign will make you focus on your closest one-to-one relationships. The good news is you will have more objectivity about these relationships, which will give you a better chance of seeing how well these relationships fill your needs or the needs of someone else. This is also an excellent time to consult experts. (“What’s the number for Ghostbusters?”)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For the next four weeks, you will work hard to manage your life. You will focus on tasks that need to be done, and you will do them as efficiently as possible – making every action count. You might have to work on behalf of someone else. Fear not. This is not necessarily a time of self-denial. Ironically, you will derive satisfaction by doing a good job for yourself and others. You will take pride in your work. Because there is increased chaos on the home front, this attitude will serve you well. I remember that my mother-in-law had a white and blue serving plate with the script, “It’s a joy to labour for those you love.”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Once a year, the Sun travels through the most fun part of your chart and this event begins this week. Lucky you! Your attitude toward your relationships will be lighter and more playful. Your focus will be on amusing recreations, games, sports, social outings, holidays and fun times with kids. Personally, you will feel free to express yourself without fear or apology because you want to be exactly who you are. How liberating and empowering! Some of you might encounter a new romance. If so, it will be a lighthearted relationship. (Let us not forget that you are a playful sign.) Enjoy your good fortune!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This week your focus will start to shift to your most intimate, personal life and the people who affect it the most. This is why you will cocoon at home more than usual and relax among familiar surroundings. Your interaction with a parent might be more significant in person or in your dreams. Meanwhile, welcome any chance to contemplate your navel and profound philosophical concepts, like why kleptomaniacs take things literally. Naturally, as you ponder family and your personal life, memories from the past will bubble up in your mind. This is why psychological self-evaluation will promote personal growth in the next few weeks. Sounds kind of heady, but we are always growing.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Beginning this week, the pace of your days will accelerate because suddenly, you’ve got places to go, things to do and people to see! Fortunately, with fiery Mars in your sign, you have the energy to accomplish all this. Meanwhile, this restless, eager influence will last for four weeks and is an excellent time for you to learn more about how you handle your casual relationships. Examine your style of communicating to others. It will be easy for you to clearly state your wants and needs to others; however, remember to listen as well. Good communications are a two-way street. If you can get out and travel for even a short trip – this will please you, because you’re eager for new knowledge and a change of scenery.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself reflecting upon your values and defining the things that are important to you in the next four weeks. Likewise, you might take a deeper look at what you own, and your relationship to your belongings. Maybe you have to ask yourself, “Why do I keep this stuff?” Obviously, in some way, you feel what you own defines you. Possibly, you want to show off what you own to others? However, at a deeper level, what you seek is a way to gain greater control over your life through the things that you own. But remember – you are the owner. Don’t want them own you. Don’t be a slave to your possessions. Meanwhile, a secret love affair might be bubbling on the back burner.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This week, the Sun moves into your sign to stay for four weeks, which is fabulous news for you! This is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of year! After all, the Sun is the source of energy in your chart, and now it’s in your sign! This means you will project yourself more successfully onto your world. You will be more confident, more courageous and more proactive. Naturally, you will feel a great need to express yourself. (This is the one time of year when it is appropriate to put your own needs first.) The Sun will also attract favourable situations and important people to you. Oh yes, this is a winning time for you! Be passionate about your work. Be passionate about your play!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Without doing anything special on your part, you can easily impress others now, especially bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. Since you have this advantage – use it. Do what you can to advance your agenda. Demand the advantage.

You are naturally curious about everything in life, which is a wonderful thing. Right now, you are especially eager to expand your world through learning, study and travel. You can also enrich your life by talking to people from other cultures and different countries.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Relations with others are smooth now, especially with Venus opposite your sign. Admittedly, Mars can make you impatient with those who are irritating. (Well, that is so challenging.) But this is nothing you can’t handle. Continue to look for ways to broaden your world, especially through travel.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Remember to get more sleep because you need more rest right now. Nevertheless, you’re determined to work hard and accomplish as much as you can. Fortunately, coworkers and others are supportive to your ambitions, which is a nice bonus.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a playful, fun-loving time for you. You are also high viz. In addition to this, family gatherings, redecorating projects and home entertaining are also on the menu. Don’t spread yourself so thin that you can’t enjoy life. (The forgiving thing about the future is it comes one day at a time.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your focus on home and family continues to be strong. Many of you are involved more than usual with a parent. Nevertheless, this is a fast-paced time for you because you have appointments, errands and an ambitious schedule. Fortunately, relations with daily contacts are cozy.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Take it easy today. Even though fiery Mars is in your sign, boosting your energy: and fair Venus is in your sign making you charming and diplomatic; nevertheless, the Moon opposes you today, which means you have to cooperate with others. Do this with grace.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

With the Sun in your sign, you are strong and in a commanding position. However, there are three planets hiding in your chart, which means you might choose to do research today or keep a low profile or enjoy solitude in beautiful surroundings. It’s your call.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Enjoy your good fortune with lucky Jupiter in your sign for the first time since 2010. Today you feel creative, artistic and dreamy. You will feel particularly sympathetic to the needs of children. Romance might beckon but also confuse. (The lure of romance plus confusion? Well, this goes with the territory.)

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS FEBRUARY 13, you are impulsive! The horoscope for February 13 says that your zodiac sign is Aquarius. You are spontaneous, to say the least. With your many interests and hobbies, it is hard to keep track of what you are doing at any given time. You will be multi-tasking with different things at the same time.

Aquarians with February 13 birthday do not like to discuss what they are doing either. You like to remain somewhat mysterious. Your admirers find you interesting. Aquarians, attract and spark up new friendships all the time. How you manage to stay single with all your good qualities is the question?

Well, I can answer that. In your impulsive and spontaneous nature that’s shown by your birthday personality, you also have a restlessness about you that is domineering. You love to socialize, but when you find someone that is interested in you, Aquarius, you become hesitant. You are a desirable person – no wonder they fell for you, Aquarius.

However, when the challenge is over, you will find yourself doing something contrary to building that relationship. The butterfly is a true Aquarian birthday symbol – it is beautiful, but before you have the time to examine its real colors, you both are gone like the wind.

February 13 Aquarius birthdays are smart, too. Your ability to develop mentally ahead of others makes you very special. You need not fritter away the gift’s potential. Because of your early maturity, you have natural abilities to meet life head-on.

What your birthday says about you is that Aquarians would make great PR people, teachers, or counselors. It would be easy as you would be using your verbal skills and charm. February born Aquarius are determined individuals who do well in their chosen field of business.

While in pursuit of happiness, people with zodiac birthday Aquarius, have optimism that is contagious. You look at setbacks as a sign that you need to take another route not that it was not meant to be.

You love your freedom, so perhaps, Aquarians, you would be interested in a career that does not place restrictions on your time. There are plenty of options out there – get busy and search them out.

The February 13 birthday horoscope predicts you like to be relaxed and commitment-free. Some people thrive on deadlines and pressure, not you, Aquarius. The stress could make you ill.

Aquarians could suffer from headaches, bad dreams, hypertension, heart disease or fatigue. Those that are born today on February 13 have illnesses that just will not go away. You do not have time for that – take care of yourself, Aquarius.

Balance is the key to ending any personal confrontations with life. As long as you are responsible, Aquarius, you can maintain your style. You work hard for what you have. You can appreciate its value because you know tomorrow is not promised to anyone.

You also know that if you live long enough, all things could change and could change in an instant. Aquarians with February 13 birthday see the importance of a dollar. You will not waste money.

Your birthday astrology shows that you have a clear mind for reasoning and a temper that is practical. You tend to be tolerant of other people’s opinions and can accept them with valid points of evidence.

Aquarians are dangerous minded individuals. Usually, your mind is made up on specific issues, but you can be persuaded to change your mind. Aquarius, you can see both sides, which make you a great mediator or referee. For those reasons, you would make a great parent.

The child of a February 13 born Aquarius would probably be like his parents. Usually, articulate and charming, they are independent at a young age. You as a father would ensure strict discipline or as a mother would allow the children to have their freedom. It is my advice that before you start planning a family, you should discuss values and moral codes.

In conclusion, Aquarius birthday analysis predicts that you are smart, impulsive, exciting and unique. You know the value of and the difference between being wealthy and affluent.

In love, you will shower your partner, but it is hard for you to make that connection and make that connection stick because deep down, you like being single. You have many hobbies that could make you independent, giving you financial security.

February 13, 2022 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 Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

The Ethics of Witchcraft/Wicca

The Ethics of Witchcraft/Wicca

Much has been written about magical ethics. Usually a list of clear dos and don’ts and thou shalts. The Wiccan Rede—“ An it harm none, do as thou will”— and the three-fold law—“ what you do comes back to you three-fold”— get bandied about as being the ethical pillars of Witchcraft. As I’m not Wiccan I don’t subscribe to these ideas. In the 1950s Doreen Valiente wrote a lovely poem called The Wiccan Rede. It drew on many sources including a poem from Aradia: Gospel of The Witches by Charles Leland, some Aleister Crowley material and older teachings. The last part, often referred to as the Rede is the well-known “an it harm none, do as thou will” although the whole thing is often reworded to mean “do whatever you like as long as you’re not hurting anybody”. I believe that in a time when witchcraft was being redefined and made out to be something nice and benevolent, it may have been important to defuse outside ideas about what witches do and make them appear “good” by instilling a moral code of sorts. The Wiccan Rede only applies to Wiccans however, not all witches or magicians.

Many following the Rede try to never think ill about anyone or use it as a reason to become vegetarian. The problem I see is that “harm none” includes yourself. Some blood and body types aren’t suited to a vegetarian diet. In addition every breath or step you take on the earth may be harming small creatures and organisms. Does this mean that we only apply “harm none” to those creatures we choose? If so, who decides what can or cannot be harmed? What is the criteria for a bug or organism to be added to the “none” category?

Harm None is also the wrong part of the rede to be focused on. Of the eight word shortened version, Harm None is the least. Will is the important part, this is discussed further later on.

The other thing about the Rede is that the word ‘rede’ means advice. Not rules, not law and not even guidelines. Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Code has more credence. The Rede is more akin to your Auntie pulling you aside to talk about boys (or girls). She’ll tell you what she thinks you should do, she may even tell you some of her horror stories. Her advice may be valid and sound but in the end the decision to act on her advice is all yours.

The three-fold law is, in some form or another, the golden rule in every culture. In Christianity the Bible states “as you sow, so shall you reap” and “an eye for an eye”. The Hindu and Buddhist faiths know it as Karma. Although Karma is not the cosmic instant reward and punishment system that New Age thought promotes it as, if you want to understand Karma, learn about it from the Hindi. Modern colloquialism expresses it as “what goes around, comes around”. However it is referred to, by whichever culture, it speaks of a consequential result for what you do in life.

In Witchcraft the three-fold part is often misunderstood. I read a blog post about how you should give money to a witch because of their three-fold law. If you give them $ 10, you’ll get $ 30 back. In the same vein if you do something bad it will be three times worse for you. The mistaken belief is that the three fold will come back at you three times when for those who believe in it, it’s on three different levels— Mind, Body and Spirit. I’ve found that there is often (but not always) a backlash. In physics— every action has an equal and opposite reaction, in Witchcraft it’s not necessarily as simple as it’s made out to be. There is also a theory that the threefold law was introduced as a way to keep beginners and learning witches safe from themselves.

It’s frequently stated that you shouldn’t interfere with another’s will. That you can’t or rather shouldn’t do a spell that will affect another without their permission. This is often said by people who then send healing energy all around the place without being asked for it and don’t see their own hypocrisy. I personally believe that it’s rarely a good idea to cast a spell regarding another person. Even if it’s “for their own good”. Who are you to decide what is best for another person? Who died and made you a God? They may have a life lesson going on, something that they need to learn from or learn how to cope with in order to grow. By ‘helping’ them you may in fact be harming them by preventing their own personal growth. It’s also a slippery slope, once you start ‘helping’ people, you can’t stop and it’s a short step away from interfering. This is different from binding and cursing but we’ll delve into that later.

Unless you belong to a faith that has its own ethics, you need to figure out what is ethical or not for yourself. Many people will assume that as a witch, you follow their system, or that witches are automatically Wiccan or Pagan and that you must subscribe to their own personal moral code in order to call yourself that. When it comes down to it, you need to ignore all the “know-it-alls” and be true to yourself. If you do ‘bad’ things there may be a backlash, but sometimes it’s worth it. Only you can know that for sure.

The Law of Return

The Law of Return

by Amanda Silvers

The threefold law of return: We hear much about this, but do we really comprehend the meaning? What you put out comes back times three (or more), means unequivocally that, good or bad, you reap what your actions have sown.

How do we define “putting something out”? A thought, a deed, a word are all actions that contain energy. Think about this: If you disburse money willingly, with the focus that you are contributing to the prosperity of the community, the prosperous energy returns to you. Not always in the exact way that you want; sometimes in the most unexpected ways!

If you choose to live in lack, feel like there is never an adequate amount of anything and attempt to hoard and hold onto everything, the flow stops. It’s akin to putting a dam on the energy flow. If you are broke, give a little away, whether it’s time or energy or money. Doing so will create a vacuum effect, which will then help to get the flow started back toward you instead of away from you.

Money is only paper with numbers on it, it is used to represent energy. You expend your energy for some of it and then give it away for something someone else put energy into. Just like everything else, it goes around in a never-ending cycle; there is an ebb and flow to it. Sometimes you have more, sometimes less, but there is always a coming and going of cash; that’s why it’s called cash flow!

This philosophy also works in other areas of life, love for instance. Do you suppose that you have only a limited amount of love? Is it to be rationed out as you go through life? Will you run out? I think not. The more affection you give, the more you generate, the more you experience, the more you give! Just like that. The cycle turns the wheel.

Try this in another area. Have you ever been frightened of having something happen and then had it happen just as you hoped it would not? Or have you ever said “I will never ______ (fill in the blank)” and found yourself doing just that shortly thereafter? Magickal components are a part of everyday life. You have an intent, put emotion (energy) into it, take action and bring it into being. You begin to create with nothing more than a word or thought. It works remarkably well for those things that you say never about, because you feel intensely about them and put a lot of energy into them. What do you think would have more power: “I wish I could win the lottery!” or “I will never have enough money!”?

Your subconscious mind does not recognize the word “not”; it’s a non-word. When you say “I do not want to do that,” it is a direct command to your brain; you are basically saying that you really do want to do whatever it is. If someone says to you, “I do not want to hurt you,” be careful!

If you sit around all the time, agonizing about your bills, your job, your health, your love life… what kind of energy are you putting out? How might that energy be contributing in a magickal sense to your circumstances? Would you do a spell to get a job you hate, or to get into a bad relationship? Of course not! So why sit around and put energy into negative crap when you could be furthering your positive wishes? The universe is a bountiful place; the Goddess is generous with her gifts. There is plenty for all. Does this ring true for you? If not, you might ask yourself, “Why not?” What beliefs that you hold to be true are sabotaging you?

“Try” is another one of my pet peeves. When a person says they will try to do something, it is just an excuse for not doing it, as in “I tried! I just couldn’t.” Think about what you say. Instead of saying “I will try,” see how much power there is in actually committing. Say “I will do it!” Also, how much power is there in saying no to those things you really don’t intend to do. Wow, what an enormous amount of energy you free up by just saying no in the first place! Then you don’t have to worry till the last minute whether you should actually do it, then have to make an excuse for not doing it – not to mention maybe having to do something you’d really rather not. You will find people will respect you more and value your energy more when you can be believed and counted upon to do what you say, as well as for your being in control of your boundaries.

Finally, be careful what you wish upon someone else, because just as positive thoughts come back to you, so do the negative ones aimed at others. Don’t wish on someone else something you would not like to have happen to you and yours. Be careful of those things said thoughtlessly or in jest. How might you feel if the nasty thought you thought when you were angry at your friend or mate were to happen?

Make your statements in the positive. Strive to be conscious of your every thought and word and the energy around them. Focus on the here and now and what’s happening. If you can accomplish this, the law of return will work in your favor and only good things will come to you.

Be careful what you ask for; you just might get it!

A Thought for Today

We may walk a path the other people do not consider “normal” but the word normal can mean different things to different people. I am so far out of the broom closet that I cannot even see the door anymore and to me this is my normal life to walk the path of the Great Mother and Great Father.

Blessed be dear Sisters, Brothers, and honored guests.

Earth at Night

Explanation: This is what the Earth looks like at night. Can you find your favorite country or city? Surprisingly, city lights make this task quite possible. Human-made lights highlight particularly developed or populated areas of the Earth’s surface, including the seaboards of Europe, the eastern United States, and Japan. Many large cities are located near rivers or oceans so that they can exchange goods cheaply by boat. Particularly dark areas include the central parts of South AmericaAfricaAsia, and Australia. The featured image, nicknamed Black Marble, is actually a composite of hundreds of pictures remade in 2016 from data taken by the orbiting Suomi NPP satellite.

13 February 2022 Daily Correspondence Digest for the Southern 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 Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Visit the February 2022 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

The Waxing Gibbous on February 13 has an illumination of 90%. 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 February 13 the Moon is 11.76 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.
