Spell for Today – Simple Love Spells c. 2016


Simple Love Spells

Apples are sacred to the Goddess because of the five-point star shape that appears at the centre when the apple is cut, crossways. They are also an underworld fruit, special to the festival of Samhain/ Halloween, and we all know how love connects us to our own personal ‘underworld’! Cut an apple in half, crossways, and give half to your lover to eat, eating one half yourself. This ensures an undying love and eternal connection. Sharing any fruit partakes of this symbolism. If you don’t have a lover but wish to attract one, you could make an apple part of your ritual, consecrating one to the love-goddess in full ritual, cutting it in half, eating one half and burying the other, feeding it to the birds, or floating it downstream. Don’t forget to affirm strongly the type of person you want to attract so you do not throw yourself open to all manner of advances. At the least, you may find an apple tree growing from the buried core!

• Carry rose petals or rose quartz crystals, for both of these attract love. Preferably consecrate them in a ritual first.

• It may be cheating to use Feng Shui, as this is an Eastern tradition and here we are primarily concerned with Western ways. However, the Chinese system of Feng Shui (which means wind, water) is extremely popular and effective. It is concerned with the meanings and sacredness of the space we inhabit. This is a complex and delicate art, but there is no harm in cautiously using some of the basics, to effect a specific result. A Feng Shui consultant told me that it is a big mistake to obtain a book on Feng Shui and to go madly reorganizing your home on the basis of it when your life is pretty tidy, anyway. However, for a specific task, you can make a small change and see if it works. Feng Shui is based on the arrangement of the environment and the relationship area of the home is the far right-hand corner. Take your bearings from your front door, whether or not it enters the house from the side, or you have a flat that you enter from a hall or the back of the house. This is still your ‘front’ door. Where is the far right-hand corner? This is the love and marriage section. If this area has been cut into by irregularities of the building, draw energies back into it by using a crystal at the window. You may merely place a piece of rose quartz in the relationship area, or perhaps a pair of soft toys, or a statue of an embracing couple. There are some lovely candles obtainable that are shaped like a pair of entwined lovers. Here you could choose according to your wish – a red candle for passionate love, blue or purple for soul-mates, etc. I have found such things to work, especially in respect of the money corner, which we shall discuss in the next section. Unless you are prepared to hire a qualified Feng Shui practitioner to comment on your area, you need to keep the changes small and wait a couple of months to see if they take effect before doing anything else. Of course, if your ‘love corner’ is home to a pile of old magazines, half-eaten packets of biscuits, torn envelopes and a dirty ashtray, I would suggest tidying it up first!

• Simplest spell of all, adopted by a friend of mine: add ‘lover’ to your shopping list!

• To ensure the continuance of love, break in half a bay twig and each one of the couple keep half. Or feed each other chestnuts.

• Brazil nuts, carried, are a love talisman. Women can also carry ivy. For men, it is best to carry holly.

• To choose between several admirers, take a green rose leaf for each, name them and note which shrivels last. This is the most enduring love. (However, if you are this unsure, perhaps you need to do some spells to make you more decisive!)

• To find love, tie a hair or two taken from your head to a blossoming cherry tree. (The Latin name for this tree is Prunus avium. As it is a beautiful tree, why not plant one in your front garden, anyway?)

• If you fear that someone has put a love spell on you, eat pistachio nuts.

Good Morning or Evening Beautiful WoTC Family and Guests – A Thought for Today

The Charge of the Goddess

Blessed be, and Blessed are,

The lovers of the Lady.

Blessed be and blessed are,

The Mother Maiden Crone.

Blessed be and blessed are,

The ones who dance together.

Bless be and blessed are,

The ones who dance alone.

She’s been waiting, waiting.

She’s been waiting so long.

She’s been waiting for her children

To remember to return.

The Charge of the Goddess is attributed to Doreen Valiente, a student of Gerarld Gardner. The poem, originally found in the Gardnerian Book of Shadows, is now loved by all wiccans as a statement of reverence for the Goddess and Nature. Valiente used materials from the Gospel of Aradia by Charles Leland (1901), and Aleister Crowley’s writings to compose the piece and it is commonly used to invoke the “Goddess” during Esbats and Sabbats.

From Lady Beltane: I am sorry many of the posts differ today than the way I want to go with them. It is a rainy gloomy day and my arthritis as well as a fibromyalgia flare is making it very difficult to type and sit at my desk. So, I did the best that I could for today. Also, the reason for only the regular daily posts to be up.

A Laugh for Today – 52 Tea Puns That Will Get You Laughing Oolong Time

(I enjoy and laugh at many jokes found in Reader’s Digest magazines that I plan on sharing a lot of them with you.)

From Reader’s Digest

So many quali-tea puns for a brew-tiful day.

Some words are just destined to be turned into puns. The word “tea” itself is so easy to make into some tea-riffic puns, not to mention all the other tea-related words. Just like wine puns or coffee puns, the possibilities are practically endless to celebrate your favorite beverages. Puns are the perfect (and funny) addition to any conversation but can also be used on a greeting card for a friend or even in your social media captions. Next time you post a picture of tea time on Instagram, jazz it up with one of these quali-tea puns to impress your friends. Or just do it for yourself because puns can always put a smile on your face. And, of course, if you’re posting pictures of your other food, we have plenty of donut puns and fruit puns too. We have puns for all occasions! Check out the best tea puns ahead.

Tea puns

Nice tea meet you!

Making tea isn’t hard, but waiting for the kettle to boil sure is tea-dious.

This drink is tea-licious!

Oolong live the queen!

Let’s get this par-tea started!

It’s a brew-tea-ful day!

Steep dreams!

Don’t be chai!

I’m gonna love you oolong time!

Varie-tea is the spice of life!

This party is totally tea-riffic.

You’re my bes-tea!

Sweet dreams are made of tea.

Don’t kettle for second best.

Sip sip hooray!

The reali-tea is I love a good brew.

The only way out is brew it.

It’s been oolong time coming.

Sometimes I’m great at multi-tea-tasking.

Feeling tired enough to go to steep.

Can we all get oolong?

I’ll chai again tomorrow.

You’re totally tea-riffic.

You have to admit these puns are quali-tea.

Everything I brew, I brew for you.

If at first you don’t suceed, chai, chai again.

Walk a chamomile in my shoes.

Feeling a bit of deja brew.

Kettle down, kettle down.

You’re such a cu-tea.

I’ve been waiting oolong, long time for this.

It’s thirs-tea Thursday!

I believe I can chai.

Boba puns

We’re a pearl-fect fit for each other.

Pearls night out.

This boba tea is unbelie-bubble!

Hope you’re tapi-okay!

I’m totally cap-bubble of drinking something other than tea, I just don’t want to!

I always had a thing for the pearl next door.

I haven’t tried boba before, but I’ll give it a pearl.

You give me bubble-flies.

Matcha puns

We’re a matcha made in heaven.

You and me are the perfect matcha.

Game, set, matcha!

I’m feeling so matcha better today!

I love you so matcha.

So matcha love.

I’ve met my matcha!

So little time, so matcha to do.

Thank you very matcha.

I’ve met my matcha.

So nice to matcha—what’s your name?

What is Brigid the goddess of?

Brigid is the goddess of the flame and the well, patroness of healing, poetry and smithcraft. She is a solar deity so her attributes are related to fire, light, and the hearth. 🔥

Brighid is the Celtic goddess of inspiration and also carries various powers related to inspiration, such as the art of healing, and divination. She was the patroness of sacred perpetual flames, such as that held by 19 nuns in a sanctuary in Kildare, Ireland (now in honor of St. Brigit).

The tradition of female priestesses who tend to eternal sacred flames is prevalent in ancient Indo-European spirituality. Other examples include the goddess Hestia, who watches over the hearth of the home, or Minerva.

Tarot Card

From Tarotx.net


Eight of Wands – Minor Arcana

The Eight of Wands describes eight sticks soaring in the air with dizzying speed. This image shows changes, moves and travels. On the card, the background is very clear, showing that there are very few obstructions in your way and there is a beautiful and peaceful river that brings life to all things which are nearby.

In the movie Ten Commandments, Moses touched his stick into the water to spread the waves. His stick is a symbol of power to initiate events. The stick of Moses evokes the image of those sticks in the Eight of Wands Tarot card. They are the symbol of the beginning of action and the effects as well as consequences of such actions. Before we act, we think, imagine, study, exchange, and delude. This is the place of the element Air which is the sky. We give practical and possible ideas, then turn them into action.

This card also has a different meaning which is the appearance of news or new information. You can see or hear something important. The news may appear as a metaphor, so stay awake and pay attention to everything that happens to you at this time.

This card also implies an end. Sooner or later everything ends. Those eight sticks in this card not only focus on starting the events, but also bringing these events to an end. It seems the sticks in this card are about to fall to the ground. If you see this card in a Tarot spread, this may be the time to stop whatever you are doing. You can celebrate the events that happened, but also prepare to receive new things.

The Hermit – Major Arcana

The Hermit stands on the top of a mountain with a bright lantern in his hand. The mountains often symbolize success, development, and accomplishment. He has reached a peak of awareness and is willing to share his knowledge with others.

He is continuing on the chosen path, devoted to the goal of achieving eternal enlightenment. The star in the lantern is a six-pointed star (the Seal of Solomon – the symbol of wisdom). His stick is the scepter of the highest position which a symbol for the arduous beginning and also represents strength and power

The scepter represents the ability of the Hermit to take advantage of the isolated situation as well as the massive amount of knowledge he has gained as a tool to assist in the path to eternal knowledge. His left hand which holds the scepter, connecting with the subconscious. The snow at his feet symbolized wisdom.

He wore an invisible gray cape. The secrets that he holds are not for everyone, but only those who wholeheartedly seek and are willing to reach the pinnacle of wisdom, are allowed to perceive.

The Hermit Tarot card is associated with the zodiac Virgo and the number 9 symbolizes success, wisdom, ability to achieve the goal and the search for truth.


Six of Swords – Minor Arcana

Six of Swords depicts a woman and a young man sailing toward a land ahead. She covers her head with a towel, showing sadness or loss when trying to escape from her past. The water flow on the right side of the raft is chaotic but peaceful on the left side.

Although there is a sign of change or loss in this card, we feel that this movement is heading towards a more promising future. Even though both the woman and the man seem sad, the smooth water flow shows that they are escaping from chaos and seeking peace. Six vertical swords symbolize the power of reason in the heart and intuition.

In one detail in The Pilgrim’s Progress (1678), the hero named Christian (whose journey also like the Fool) was trapped in the Slough of Despond swamp. He made a lot of effort until he was pulled out by Help. Help told him that “A lot of fears, doubts and boredom have formed in this place”.

The name of the Slough of Despond swamp is a good name for the Six of Swords. Sometimes, it shows a vague and listless state. Nothing is seriously wrong as well as is really true. You are overcoming but not thriving. In the card, there are two people on a boat, they seem very sad and surrender everything. Life is uninteresting when we feel bored.

In a more positive side, this card can imply a recovery. This is especially true when you have just undergone a difficult time or psychological trauma. During the period of suffering, you have always felt indifferent and unconnected. There is nothing important in your mind right now. Now you are entering the stage of healing and trying to cure the damage in life. People on the boat are at least moving forward. They are coming to a new land, even if they are not ready.

Neither Six of Swords promises great joy nor mention the ultimate disappointment. A swamp is not really a bottomless pit, it is merely a place where sadness and despair are present. When you see this Swords card in a spread, even though circumstances may not be ideal, you are still moving towards a new, more positive place. Opportunities are still there; new and more hopeful conditions are ahead.

Tree: Collection of various trees

Letter: Ch

Koad represents a point on the map of your life and cause to reflect on what got you there as well as where you are headed. Many factors conspired to bring you where you are today. An entire ecosystem exists in and around you that is as unique as a fingerprint. This ecosystem is neither entirely good nor entirely bad, which is why this Ogham and the rest of the Forfedha (Oir, Uilleand, Phagos, and Mor) are too complex to be read as well or ill-dignified. Koad is one particular harmony/dissonance at this point in your life. If your life is going well in some respects, this could mean a feeling of competence and capability or a feeling of love and being loved. If you are in a time of stress, Koad may represent the s**tstorm whirling around you. Or all of the above could be going on at once.
You are here to learn a certain set of unique lessons in this lifetime. There are many roads you can take any given day, and like one of those old Choose Your Own Adventure books, each road has its own outcome. Sometimes two seemingly different roads have the same outcome. Koad indicates a feeling of responsibility and ownership of your decisions, however, other factors you cannot control should be taken into account as well, such as family history, social norms, laws, and the era in which you dwell.

Many people do not realize that orchestral symphonies are major works that are frequently an hour in length. A symphony is an elaborate ABA form (think Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on steroids) with mini-breaks between three sections. If your life is a symphony, imagine Koad as one moment in one measure of a huge programmatic work of music. What harmony have you achieved? Are you in a slow or fast movement?

Questions when you draw Koad:
-Is there any area of your life (romance, health, money, work, mood, etc.) where you feel out of balance? What areas of your life show the most balance?
-List nine factors that you cannot control but seriously affect your life anyway, for better or for worse.
-Name three times in this life you have done right by someone, including once when you have done right by yourself.

“There is a deep interconnectedness of all life on earth, from the tiniest organisms, to the largest ecosystems, and absolutely between each person.” -Bryant McGill

“I pace the shallow sea, walking the time between, reflecting on the type of fossil I’d like to be. I guess I’d like my bones to be replaced by some vivid chert, a red ulna or radius, or maybe preserved as the track of some lug-soled creature locked in the sandstone ― how did it walk, what did it eat, and did it love sunshine?”
-Ann Zwinger

“As the branches of the trees swayed. I stopped at the grass and laid. A different symphony played out in the woods.” -Suyasha Subedi

Hexagram Thirty – Five 35

Chin / Aspiration

The Sun shines down upon the Earth:
Constantly honing and refining his brilliance, the Superior Person is a Godsend to his people.
They repay his benevolence with a herd of horses, and he is granted audience three times in a single day.



This is a time of reward for good works.
Those you have helped want to show their gratitude.
Benefits come both from on high and from the humble you uplifted.
Accept all gifts graciously, though the reward may not be what you truly need or hoped for.
Some may bestow more than they can afford to give, but you must realize that they need to feel that they have repaid you.

February 9, 2023 Birthday Horoscope

May the next year of your life be more positive than the past year! 

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

FEBRUARY 9 birthday horoscope predicts that you are shrewd and calculating when it comes to business. You are always armed and ready for whatever conflicts come your way. After all, the February 9 zodiac sign is Aquarius. You do not take no for an answer.

You are a homebody but not necessarily a couch potato. February 9 personality value art and entertaining or mingling with people. You love music. You enjoy the attention you receive from others. Aquarians born on this day are joyful people.

February 9 birthday personality, your leadership abilities extend from your family values, and you apply those disciplines to your environment. It is likely that you and your mother have a close relationship.

Perhaps, you had to step up and help your mother as a child because your father was not there. You know how to handle financial woes. You, whose birthday is February 9, are capable of taking care of yourselves.

You may relate to a different element from what your Sun Sign / Zodiac Sign element is. Take this in-depth four elements personality quiz to understand it.

What your birthday says about you is that people value your opinion. You are motivated, strong-minded, and cooperative. You are quick-tempered, and you can be aggressive. Aquarians will use that same passion to educate others.

February 9 birthday personality traits could influence your ability to make and to save money. This up and down period could be blamed on the stars or the rain, but more than likely, it is you. Aquarius zodiac sign people need to focus on more opportunities to increase positive cash rewards.

February 9 horoscope predicts that you should be careful when creating certain situations that could prove difficulties for you later. You are likely to be misinterpreted by some folks. You could suffer because either you have an attention deficit to personal relationships or you may be the target of gossip.

Your efforts to make good conversation could be muffled by the sounds of your prudent ways. Although you may enjoy certain aspects of a challenge, choose your battles, dear Aquarius. You could pick your associations a little more carefully.
