What Will Happen with WOTC Posts, Life in The Craft Magazine, and WOTC’s School of Witchcraft in 2023

We have had a up and down 2022 with posting consistencies and stopping publication of Life in The Craft magazine. Some of this will change for the better in the upcoming year.

In 2023 Lady Beltane will have a right-hand witch, Graphia, to cover posting if she is down due to an illness or one of her chronic medical problems decide to rear up. So, most of the posts for tomorrow in both hemispheres should be covered and on time. The biggest change is posts will be done daily at no specific time. The northern hemisphere’s tomorrow posts will go live in the evening. The southern hemisphere tomorrow posts will go live in your morning. I know this sounds a little confusing, but I tried to explain it the best why I could.

The regular daily posts will be:

Daily Horoscope

Birthday Horoscope

Nothern Hemisphere Planetary Positions

Southern Hemisphere Planetary Positions

Moon Goddess Current Phase

Correspondences for the day

Spell for Today

Divination Journal

A Thought for Today

A Laugh for Today

Astronomy Picture of the Day will be posted on Saturdays for the proceeding week. The first post for the new year will be on January 7, 2023

There will also be posts covering a wide range of topics almost everyday also.

Emails being answered will still be answered solely by Lady Beltane so if you do not get an answer right away, please be patient because it will be answered as soon as she can.

As for the Life in The Craft magazine the first issue covering Imbolc and Lammas should be out a few days before the Sabbat. With the rest of the Sabbats being covered about a week before the date the fall on. There will be 8 issues published in 2023 which will contain information about the northern and southern hemisphere’s Sabbat. More information about this will be posted within the next week.

WOTC’s School of Witchcraft will be accepting applications again starting January 6, 2023. For more information about the novice and adept courses scroll over WOTC’s School of Witchcraft in the main menu and click on what you want to know in the drop-down box.

Moon Alert

Before 5:45 AM EST today (2:45 AM PST) avoid shopping or making important decisions. After that, the Moon moves from Pisces into Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

A lovely day! The Moon is in Aries, lined up with Jupiter in your sign. (It doesn’t get much better than this.) In addition, the Moon is also dancing beautifully with your ruler Mars. Naturally, you feel jubilant, confident and energetic! You rock!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a lovely day because you feel pleased with yourself. You feel reassured about your future, and possibly also reassured about your finances. You’re keen to travel and expand your horizons. (Ideally, travel someplace you have been before.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a marvellous day to enjoy the company of others, especially female colleagues, plus groups and conferences because you will be in your element! You will enjoy talking to others. In turn, they will respond enthusiastically to your positive energy.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your ruler is the Moon, and today the Moon is lined up with lucky Jupiter! Furthermore, this takes place at the top of your chart, which means others see you as successful and capable. Travel plans will appeal. You might also be excited about something going on behind the scenes.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your desire to get a change of scenery is strong today, which is why you should do something different to shake up your world a little. If you can’t travel, go to a new restaurant, visit a new store, drive somewhere you have never been before. Get dressed!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Financial negotiations will go well today. Fortunately, you are determined to go after what you want. This is an excellent day to ask for a loan or mortgage because doors will open for you. You might receive an inheritance, a gift or a favour from someone else.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a great day to schmooze with friends, partners and even members of the general public. Whatever you do will “expand” your world in some way. Perhaps you will entertain at home because you have a strong focus on home and family at this time. Talk to people who are “different.”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is an excellent day for work-related travel. It’s also a good day to work with groups related to your job. Classes, meetings and conferences will expand your mind and introduce you to new ideas. You might also lobby for a better budget or more equipment – and get it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A playful day! You are a breezy, lighthearted, fun-loving sign and today, you have a chance to spread your wings. The bottom line is you want to do exactly what you want. Enjoy sports events, the great outdoors, creative activities and playful times with children. Accept invitations to socialize!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a wonderful day to explore real-estate opportunities or shopping for your home or a family member. It’s also a great day to entertain at home. With the Sun, Mercury and Venus in your sign, you will easily get what you want. Group meetings at home will go well.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Trust your intuition today! (You are a highly intuitive anyhow.) Today, you find it easy to think like a winner. You expect the best for yourself and others. This is also a wonderful day to explore, learn new things, see new places and meet new people because you’re eager for adventure and new knowledge.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Business and commerce are favoured today. Trust your moneymaking ideas. You might work hard for money today, and see ways to boost your income. However, you might also spend big. Be careful.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Ted Danson (1947) shares your birthday today. You have a serious side. You are thoughtful, responsible and reliable. Justice and fair play are important to you. You are also impossibly charming. This is a slower paced year, and time to rejuvenate yourself. Focus on your closest personal relationships. Concentrate on your needs and what brings you happiness.

Ui (sometimes interpreted as Pe) is Uillean, the Honeysuckle. Associated with the manifestation of will, the Honeysuckle starts as a small seed and creeps along, growing and spreading over time. Honeysuckle twists and spirals up and over its surroundings, its soft yellow flowers releasing a sweet scent. It is the flower of unspoken desire, hidden needs, secret wants, but it also represents our goals of finding our true Self.

From a medicinal standpoint, the honeysuckle can be useful as well. Dioscorides says,

“the ripe seed gathered and dried in theshadow and drunk for four days together, doth waste and consume away the hardness of the spleen and removeth wearisomeness, helpeth the shortness and difficulty of breathing, cureth the hicket (hiccough), etc. A syrup made of the flowers is good to be drunk against diseases of the lungs and spleen.”

Uillean Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means you need to allow yourself the freedom to pursue your desire. If you’ve got hopes or dreams that are unattained, now is your time to start considering whether they’re remain just dreams, or become reality. Denying yourself the chance to enjoy life is unfair.

Magical Aspects: Take the time to experience joy, but make sure you stay true to your values and beliefs as well. In many Wiccan traditions, the Charge of the Goddess is quoted as a reminder of this: All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. Another aspect of this symbol is that sometimes, mysteries which seem to be hidden may not be as hard to delve into as you think–sometimes, you’ve just been sidetracked by distractions.

I Ching

Hexagram Fourteen/14

Name: Ta Yu.

Keyphrase: Abundance.

Formed By The Trigrams: Fire over Heaven.


General: Those who understand the responsibility that comes with wealth are the ones best fitted to maintain it.

Love: Enjoy the current harmonious period but do not allow yourself to become complacent.

Business: Opportunities for business success will be there if you look for them. Do not allow yourself to become greedy though.

Personal: Take the time to enjoy mental clarity but make sure to watch for any feelings of pride or arrogance and eliminate them if necessary.


Overview: Ta Yu relates to a time of abundance when all is going well. Although an auspicious time it carries a warning not to allow yourself to become arrogant or greedy. All obstacles in all aspects of life will have disappeared and life should be enjoyed. Do not make the mistake of becoming complacent and believing this period will last forever. It won’t. Nothing does. Examine the harmonious circumstances that gave rise to your current success and do your best to preserve them. This way you will be able to maintain success as long as possible. Generosity and humility are essentials to this process

See “The Karmic Debt Numbers.” A wild streak. Need for change and adventure can destroy carefully planned progress. Lack of focus and commitment. This Karmic Debt number can get you in trouble. Guard against self-indulgence.

Angel Number

From informationseries.com


The meaning of “14” is “support for angels”

Angel number “14” indicates that the angel is helping you to make your positive thoughts a reality. Are you always thinking of positive thinking? Seeing your hard work, an angel is helping me.

If you have trouble switching from negative thinking, ask the angel to think positively. It makes it easier to switch feelings.

“1” means “new start”

Angel number “1” means “new beginning”. It is the beginning of the numbers, and it has the strong power to bring a “new start” from the beginning of everything. There may be turning points and changes in your surroundings, such as work and love, that change your life.

“1” is also a number that means everything is connected. Therefore, you can say that you have the power to connect to the future where your ideals and dreams come true. The numbers also carry the message, “You should work with a positive feeling.”

If you have a dream or goal that you want to fulfill now, don’t forget your positive feelings. In doing so, the power of the numbers will lead to better directions.

“4” means “an angel is near” …
