How to Use Sun Phases for Spells

While almost every witch follows Moon phases for doing spells, rituals, and other magickal works. I also use the Sun phases, especially because my patron God is Ra.

Every day there is a waxing, full, waning and new phases for the Sun besides the seasonal changes. From midnight to noon is the waxing phases, the full phase is from 11:55 AM to 12:05 PM, the waning follows until sunset than at 11:55 PM to 12:05 AM is the new Sun phases. For the seasons spring is the waning, summer the new fall the waxing and winter the full. You can also go by Sabbat dates Beltane-Waning, Summer Solstice – New, Samhain – Waxing, Winter Solstice – Full.

This idea and the phases may seem a bit strange to people but when the Moon is in the wrong phases for something I cannot wait to do I use the daily and if possible seasonal Sun phases. This gives me more options of what I need to do.

A Thought for Today

Dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may the Gods and Goddesses bless you and your family with all things positive!

Spell for Today – Healing Water Enchantment


Healing Water Enchantment


  • A glass of water (that’s it!)

I prefer to use a glass, but you can use a plastic bottle if it’s all you have. Water is the perfect liquid to imprint with your intensions, so this spell is super simple but instantly powerful.

Hold the glass of water between your hands and say whatever you most need. For example:

My migraine is gone and I am full of health.

Close your eyes as you say these words and focus on putting all of your energy into the water. Raise as much energy as you can (I raise energy through my feet from the earth and send it out through my hands) and picture the outcome that you want. Do this for at least 2 minutes.

Once you have enchanted the water, drink it within the hour for optimal results.

Spell for Today – Sun Water: Solar Magick and Sun Energy


As the sun rises each morning, it offers us a newfound sense of hope that carries us through our day. But what if we could capture the energy and vibrancy of the sun every single minute? What if there were a way to access its healing properties wherever life takes us? That’s where sun water comes into play!

Solar Water

Solar magick harnesses the power of the sun to bring about positive change in one’s life. This could involve anything from casting spells to meditating in the rays of the sun and focusing on your desired outcome. Whether asking for protection or blessings, developing confidence, or encouraging growth, solar magick can bring peace and harmony into your life. Creating solar water is an easy way to incorporate sun magick into your craft.

What Is Sun Water?

Solar water is precisely what you’d expect: water that harnesses the energy and power of the sun! Solar water can then be used in other spells, workings, and magickal practices.

How To Make Solar Water

Much like moon water, solar water can be easily created by leaving a clear glass jar or container of water out in the sunlight in order to infuse the water with the Sun’s properties. You can use spring, bottled, or tap water – any kind will do! Just make sure the water is safe to drink if you intend on doing so.

Once you have collected the water, you can add herbs, oils, or other ingredients that are associated with your intention. For example, if you are doing a spell for prosperity, you might add some money-drawing herbs such as basil or mint.

After you have added your ingredients, you will need to charge the water. This can be done by simply speaking your intention over the water, or by using a charged crystal such as amethyst or citrine.

When To Collect Sun Water

What time of day is best for creating solar water? Well, that depends on your intention! The Sun goes through several phases throughout the day, and each of these phases brings a very different energy to your magickal workings.


This water is best utilized for new beginnings, manifestation, and drawing in blessings such as wealth, abundance, and fertility.


This water is often used to bring good health and vitality, physical prowess, courage, and wisdom. The Sun’s energy is at its peak during this time, making it perfect for charging crystals or other magick implements.


This water is used for releasing unwanted energies, letting go, or revealing truths. Appropriate for shadow work and banishing negativity.

Your sun water can be further customized by working with the sign that the sun is currently in to help you focus your intention. At the time of writing this, the sun is in Aquarius, blessing us with joy, creativity, and a strong spirit of individuality. Next, we’ll explore how to incorporate the aspects of the Sun into your practice.

Uses For Sun Water

Now that you have your Sun water created and charged, it’s time to use it! Here are a few different ideas for you to get started with.

Use the water in your spell or ritual.

Once the water is charged, you can use it in your spell or ritual in any way … Click here for usage of Sun Water from

Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence for Tuesday – Printable

Goddess Of The Day: VESTA

(I could not get the font to go larger, sorry about that)


Feast of Vesta (Rome)

 Themes: Home; Love; Fertility; Peace

Symbols: Fire; Donkey; Veils

 About Vesta: In Roman mythology, Vesta was part of every fire. As such, Vesta commands the sacred fires of the hearth, the heart of spiritual and emotional stability in your home. Today was one other festival days, Christianized as the Feast of the Ass, which is a sacred animal to her. Traditional offerings for Vesta include homemade bread and salt cakes.

 In works of art, Vesta was never shown directly but always depicted her in veils, possibly to honor her importance in Roman society. The vestal priestess was one of the few people considered suited to negotiating peace during war threats.

 To Do Today: The first month of the year is a good time to think about the spiritual warmth in your living space. Ask Vesta to kindle those fires anew. Do this by lighting any fire source you have handy-a match, a candle, the oven, a pilot light-or, alternatively, just turn on a light as a symbolic fire. Be sure to keep this lit all day. When a fire goes out on Vesta’s day, it’s considered a bad omen, indicative of love being lost. To encourage peace on any battleground you’re facing this year, light a white candle (the color of truce) and put it in a window to invite Vesta’s presence (being sure it’s safe to do so, of course). Then take a piece of bread outside, breaking it into small bits so the birds can carry your wish of harmony across the earth.

Flower Meaning, Symbolize, and Spiritual Meaning


Red Flower Meanings: What Do They Symbolize?

If you could envision the quintessential flower, it might be hard to decide on what kind it might be, but most likely it would be red. Indeed, no other flower says, “I love you,” quite like a red one. Yes, red flower symbolism includes true love. But it also includes so much more.

Here is a quick list of red flower meanings:

Romantic love





Good luck


Types of Red Flowers and Their Meanings

Red flower symbolism can have slight variations depending on the type of flower. Here are some examples:

Red roses mean romantic love and passion.

Poppy flowers symbolize honor and remembrance.

Hibiscus flowers symbolize hospitality and friendship.

Red tulips represent fresh starts and renewal.

Geraniums that are red symbolize good health and happiness.

Red orchids symbolize a happy marriage and prosperity.

Lilies that are red symbolize everlasting love.

Zinnias that are red represent romantic love and money.

Red cosmos symbolize soulmates.

Red Flower Symbolism Sends a Strong Message

Red flowers are suitable for many occasions. However, the strongest message they convey is romantic love. So, if given to the wrong person, they might send an unwelcome message! But when given to the right person – they speak volumes.

The color red is also associated with primal energy and your first chakra, or the root chakra. Your first chakra rules your security and stability. So, red flowers in the garden or as potted plants can provide positive energy for a home or business.

In summary, red flowers are classics. Green leaves provide the perfect contrast to scarlet, crimson, and fire-colored blooms. And few people can argue with their show-stopping beauty!

Hexagram Thirty – Six/36

Ming I / Eclipsing the Light

Warmth and Light are swallowed by Deep Darkness:
The Superior Person shows his brilliance by keeping it veiled among the masses.

Stay true to your course, despite the visible obstacles ahead.


This time calls for a saintly effort to turn the other cheek.
You have been deliberately injured.
Going blow-for-blow will only escalate this war.
Abstain from vengeance.
Show all watching that you are above it.
Sidestep your aggressor’s headlong charge, giving him the opportunity to fall on his face.



Thirty – Six

It is very creative. It is sometimes a genius. It is also self-conscious, inhibited, and aloof.

Animal Spirit Guide or Helper

From Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guide Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer p. 86-87


“Let yourself stand out and be noticed”

It’s time to step forward and stop hiding behind any of the facades that you’ve developed over the years. Although these personas have been highly adaptive and have helped you along the way — for — which you can be grateful — there’s more of you to express to the world, and it’s ready to emerge. There’s a certain safety and comfort in being inconspicuous and always staying in the background, yet in playing it safe in this way, others don’t have the opportunity to get to know who you really are, and you don’t get to experience the richness and textures that are possible by participating more fully in life. By remaining in the background, you not only alienate yourself from others, but often end up allowing others to choose for you. Doing so can make you feel like a passive victim of life.

Being noticed does have some risks. People may criticize or judge you, particularly if they’re not use to you asserting yourself, which can be a very harsh sentence. These are the most likely risks, but they’re actually very minimal. So shed any guilt or shame about coming out with who you are. Wear more colorful clothing, sing, dance, and let others know your thoughts, feelings, and opinions. You can do so with grace, dignity, and enthusiasm — and you might even enjoy it!

Associations: Self-Confidence; Clairvoyance; Sensitivity; Healing; Dignity; Laughter; Leadership; Gracefulness; Flamboyance; Colorfulness; Cheerfulness; Radiance; Attractiveness

Tarot Cards

Today’s Tarot card reading comes from The Green Witch Tarot Deck and The Green Witch Tarot Companion by Ann Moura. With the art done by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard.

As I was pulling and am typing the meanings for each card, I noticed they all point to finances, work, learning new skills, and being more independent where any kind of work is concerned. Instead of having 4 different tarot cards for 4 different topics I am going to combined all of today’s tarot cards plus add 1 more to do an Influence of Elements spread for all the cards. They all belong under the heading of finances. I suggest you read all the card meanings and then see how they fit together in your own life today.



Card 1 – Spirit/Center (the spiritual health of your life.)

The power of elation is so great as to offer nourishment to others. This is also a card of productivity and fulfillment, possibly indicating fertility or pregnancy. One can act with determination, knowing the results will be satisfying.

This is a power card incorporates of beneficial aspect offering happiness in relationships and unity with the Divine through love. As it is related to the influence of the Moon, trust in the power of intuition is also indicated. The warning here is not to let one’s emotions turn into affectation with exaggerated or dramatized feelings to the point where they are perceived as insincere or pretentious. AS the elemental power of water, the Ace of Chalices represents the autumn months of September, October, and November for the purpose of timing in relation to other cards a reading.

Prompt Words: Abundance, joy.

Card 2 – Air/East (the mental part of your life.)

Two of Pentacles – Minor Arcana

This card shows a farmer balancing two pentacles, indicating his ability to balance finances as well as learn new skills, as progress in his area of expertise creates changes in methods. As a card of practicing dexterity, this card indicates energy being directed with determination to accomplish something for a job, financial, or personal security. New approaches at work or a promotion could require specialized training, but the person has the ability to pick up these new skills with ease. While others may struggle or resist change, this person moves with confidence, adapting easily to new situations and requirements. The farmer depicted is unconcerned about the coming storm, for he knows his job and has secured his barn, so he is prepared for anything.

In some cases this card indicates balancing two jobs for financial security, but with the resolve necessary to carry on until finances improve. It could also be a card of apprenticeship, learning from a master or other professional, or it could simply show the need to live within a budget, depending on surrounding cards.

Card 3 Fire/South (your energy or movements of events)

Page of Athames – Minor Arcana Court Card

This is a card of apprentice who is eager to test the skills learned. There is an adroit use of language talents and desire to be more self-assertive. Here the young girl practices calling the quarters for ritual, using the instructions in her Book of Shadows and gaining self-confidence with her actions. This is the beginning of independent thinking, but one must take care no to let this self-assurance slip into the cockiness of ambition and certitude. The time is right to showcase one’s talents for evaluation, endorsement, recognition, or advancement. Proving oneself can be a personal matter or one related to work, with the implied caution of possible competition with others reaching for the same goal. Vigilance is needed, plus a keen awareness of learning what is required to pursue one’s goals. Competitors may be engaging in spying and gossip, so one must be discreet with words and apply the necessary wisdom to avoid spitefulness. Be wary of taking inappropriate shortcuts, for there is abundant energy to get past obstructions to learning and, through the testing, to prove one’s abilities in pursuit of one’s goals.

Borage, representing an increase of psychic power, protection, and courage, grows in the clearing. An owl, a symbol of Moon magic and intuition, watches from a nearby tree branch.

Meaning: Assertiveness, showcasing talents, demonstrating abilities for advancement, testing skills, pursuing goals, vigilance, language skills, proving abilities, scrupulous preparations, practicing a skill, beginnings of independent thinking, preparing for action.

This new path offers change for others through example and by opening new vistas, yet each individual learns on personal terms. In the passage of time, it is the trek itself that leads to wisdom.

The wise old God departs with a smile to his younger self, the Oak King, nursing in the arms of the Mother Goddess. Just as the old solar year ends and the new begins at the winter solstice, the cycle of life and lessons learned will be repeated through human generations as it is yearly for the God.

Witch’s Rune

From The


The Waves Rune stands for intuition and artistic imagination as well as cloudy perception. In this way, this run stands for self-sacrifice or self-sabotage.

When this rune turns up in a reading, it indicates that the answer is still not clear. Often, the matter of your concern will soon dissipate or phase out with no resolution or closure.

On the positive side, the Waves Rune represents a wellspring of creativity where you are nourished by the power of your own imagination.

Sometimes this rune means that the matter you have asked about depends upon your timing. So what you can imagine can become a reality, as long as you are willing to clarify and follow through.




Pronunciation – M-win, Moon

Tree Association – Vine

Meaning – Goals are coming to fruition, persuasion, celebration, relaxing, harvesting, and play. Muin wonderfully symbolizes the metaphor of reaping what we’ve sown. Now is a time for pleasure, to rest, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Vine produces grapes which creates wine that allows us to let go of self-conscience thoughts, allowing for creative inspiration, a relaxed altered consciousness, and revealing truths. It also represents deceit, fallacies, or denial of facts. Remember to continuously pursue the origin or source of any information you receive. Proceed with caution before acting on any facts or advice you’ve been given.
