Witches Rune

From psychic-revelation.com – Witch’s Runes


Keywords: Change.

Meanings: The “x” marks represent the four main phases of the moon and so you can expect changes to happen within the next 28 days. This is a particularly feminine stone and often appears in response to questions about women’s issues. The Moon rune is a messenger. It is telling you to be aware that major changes are coming to your life. Consult the runes closest to it to determine whether those changes are negative or positive.


From symbolsage.com – Ogham Symbols


A representation of the oak tree, Duir corresponds to the letter D and is associated with strength, stability, and growth. The term duir also means door, so the oak groves are believed to be places where the sky world, the earth, and the otherworld meet. It’s believed that the symbol enables one to see the invisible, as well as things hidden from view at present.

To the druids, every part of the oak was sacred and used in ritual and divination. In fact, the term druid, means one with the wisdom of the oak. The oak tree is associated with the ancient tradition of the oak king, the fertility god of the green world and is a symbol of male sovereignty.

I Ching

From psychic-revelation.com – I Ching

 Hexagram Thirty – Five/35

Name: Chin.

Keyphrase: Progress.

Formed By The Trigrams: Fire over Earth.


General: An easily won victory should not be taken for granted or treated lightly.

Love: Do not despise easy progress with your love life. Cherish it instead.

Business: Be thankful for your current success.

Personal: Take the time to consolidate your success and share it with those around you.


Overview: Chin is all about progress. Easy progress and the feeling of dissatisfaction that can sometimes arise from such progress. Chin urges you to adopt the same attitude in victory as you would in adversity. Levelheadedness is required in both situations. Chin also warns that you should not try and take advantage of an easy victory for personal gain but must share the success with others.

A Thought for Today

As pagans and witches from all walks of life and different witchcraft traditions we face who do we tell about our spiritual and magickal paths? Does it make us an imposter witch if we stay partly or fully in the broom closet?

This topic came up in a chat with my apprentices a week ago. There were 5 of us present in the chat and we each had a different viewpoint but the bottom line for all of us is it does not matter if we keep out paths to ourselves or tell people we are still “real” witches and pagans. What we feel inside our heart about the path we chose to walk is way more important than who we tell or do not tell. Our connection with the Goddesses and Gods is all that matters.

Blessed be dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may your life be filled with all things positive!

October 23, 2022 Birthday Horoscope

Happy Birthday! May the next year of your life be better than the past year! 

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope from sunsigns.org

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS OCTOBER 23, then you are a romantic at heart. You are a mysterious Scorpio, however. You tend to expect a certain level of loyalty from your friends and you have some idealistic notions about love.

If today is your birthday, you are also a distinctive person. In a relationship, you have a tendency to keep it private but demand a lot. Ironically, you’d make a great private investigator. People born today are known to have unmistakable gut instinct.

When it comes to you and your family, you guys are close. You love your siblings and find that you are not as close to your cousins. The October 23rd birthday personality is affectionate and spiritual. You practice meditation generally in your daily routine as a part of relaxation techniques.

Although you don’t particularly care for hanging all out in public, you like to touch in private. Loyalty is a must if you want to be in a relationship with this Scorpio birthday person. You just don’t like a lot of attention like other Scorpions.

As the 23 October birthday zodiac sign is Scorpio, you are likely to be very close to your family members especially when it comes to your siblings. You still enjoy playing around with them possibly having memories of when you were naughty children.

You may have better parenting skills because of your close upbringing. Some friendships can be compared to as extensions of the family as well. As a lover, you can be so very passionate and creative.

The October 23 birthday horoscope also predicts that you may have idealistic dreams and hopes but you know how to handle your paper. Money may not be the most important thing to you. It could be possible that you haven’t found your professional niche. Someone like you may be interested in the thrill of a certain position. If it tests your skills and knowledge or even, a gift of having certain power that you need to improve on, you will do it.

Career options for the 23 October birthday personality are many. You are suited for many occupations especially when it comes to legal affairs or law enforcement. It gives you pleasure and satisfaction knowing that you can turn a negative situation into a winning campaign.

As the October 23rd birthday astrology rightly says, you can be an individual who is bloodthirsty and possibly manipulative. These qualities could be your downfall or you can use them as a positive feature. Your reputation is at stake so make your decisions carefully. Whatever field you choose, you will likely go at it with a lot of determination and with a competitive spirit.

When it comes to your health, Scorpio, you lack the ambition to work out. You have a tendency to think that maintenance is not necessary because your overall health is in good condition. However, you could spruce up your tennis game. It’s a great outdoor activity and it could be fun with the right person or people.

In the meantime, meditation seems to be working for you as a sleep aid. Your eating habits can contribute to your sleep patterns as well. Be sure to take your vitamins every day to get the maximum effects from them.

You are a mysterious Scorpio if you were born on October 23. You keep your business to yourself but would make an awesome detective or police officer. You enjoyed your childhood with your brothers and sisters and still embrace them with so much love and tenderness.

The October 23 birthday meaning suggests that you are determined to succeed as you have a competitive trait as well. Generally, your health is up for a challenge so, you should find a work out tailored just for someone born today.

N is for Nion, sometimes called Nuin, which is connected to the Ash tree. Ash is one of three trees which were sacred to the Druids (Ash, Oak and Thorn), and connects the inner self to the outer worlds. This is a symbol of connections and creativity, and transitions between the worlds.

In Norse legend, Yggdrasil, the World Tree, is an Ash. Its roots grew down far into the Underworld, and its branches reached all the way up into the heavens. Odin hung himself from the tree for nine days as a sacrifice. Ash also features prominently in the Irish myth cycles, and is often depicted growing beside a well or pool of wisdom.

The numbers 1-9 are very important to the science of Numerology. The energy and meaning of each of these numbers is different, so whether we see them in our Numerology charts or wonder why they keep reappearing in our lives, it’s important to know what they mean so we can understand the messages they are sending us. The number 9, the very last of these numbers, has been on a long journey, and now shines its light of love and divine wisdom into the world.

What is the definition of 9 in Numerology?

The energy of the number 9 represents completion, but not finality. Think of it more in a cyclical sense; it’s about the ending of one cycle and the potential it creates for another cycle to begin. The 9 in Numerology acts as an usher in this process of transition or transformation, guiding and empowering us with its wisdom. It absorbs answers from a spiritual source, then delivers them to us in the real world.

This number is a humanitarian at heart. It is compassionate, kind, and intent on putting its efforts toward creating the greatest good. The 9 in Numerology has gone through its fair share of hardship and is wiser, stronger, and more aware as a result. These first-hand experiences make it especially understanding of others who are struggling and willing to provide valuable support.

A Basic Spell

From https://gypsywolf.weebly.com/a-basic-spell.html

You may dress however is traditional or feels comfortable for you. Feel free to wear colors that match your intention, if you desire. Perform your spell on a corresponding day of the week and phase of the moon for the optimum beneficial energies.

Gather all of your materials (candles, holder, matches, symbols, tools, essential oils, gemstones, herbs/flowers/seeds/fruits) and set them and yourself in front of a sturdy, flat area. Feel free to drape a cloth over your working area in a corresponding color to your intention, if you wish. This will be your altar.

Envision your altar and yourself surrounded in a large bubble of pure, white protective light. You may also sprinkle a protective circle of salt around you and your working area, in a clockwise direction.

Open your essential oil and breathe in the aroma. Drip a few drops onto your fingers. Rub the oil onto the candle from the top to the center and from the bottom to the center, all the way around until you cover the entire candle. As you anoint the candle, visualize your intentions into the candle. Place the candle in the candle holder and set it in front of you on a flat surface.

Sprinkle some of the herbs/flowers/seeds into your hand. Feel it’s energies. Breathe in it’s scent. Focus on your intentions, building the energies in your body up, as you connect with the energies of the herbs/flowers/seeds. Sprinkle them around the candle in a circular pattern. Continue with any other symbols or natural substances you are using, including any gemstones, fruits, and the like. Place them around the candle along with the herbs.

Light the candle with a match and extinguish the match with a flick of your wrist. Set the match in a fireproof dish. Continue to build your energies up as you visualize your intention. Focus on your intention and hold the image in your mind. Focus on the feeling of achieving your goal. Hold the feeling in your heart. Recite any chants, directions, or affirmations at this time. Mesh your images and your feelings with each other and release them both into the atmosphere.

When you are finished, allow your energies to calm back down. Then unbind your working area by envisioning the circle opening up and sweeping any salt and energies away in a counter-clockwise direction. Your work is done. Allow yourself to focus on other thoughts and let the magic do it’s work.

Allow your candle to burn all the way down, or extinguish the flame with a candle snuffer. Gather all of your materials and collect your natural substances. You have infused these items with your intentions and energies, so you will have to cleanse any tools for future use and dispose of any natural substances and candle stubs. You may bury your natural materials in a spot of uncultivated earth, or sprinkle them through the air in a sacred area. Remember to ground yourself and your energies when you are finished.

Explanation: What strange world is this? Earth. In the foreground of the featured image are the Pinnacles, unusual rock spires in Nambung National Park in Western Australia. Made of ancient sea shells (limestone), how these human-sized picturesque spires formed remains a topic of research. The picturesque panorama was taken in 2017 September. A ray of zodiacal light, sunlight reflected by dust grains orbiting between the planets in the Solar System, rises from the horizon near the image center. Arching across the top is the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy. The planets Jupiter and Saturn, as well as several famous stars are also visible in the background night sky.
