I’m Sorry

I have been trying to do some deep cleaning our home and lost track of time today besides pitting myself in a lot of pain from over doing it. This is why no posts went up this afternoon. All the posts will be up tomorrow.

A Laugh for Today

Why M&M’s Are Wiccan

  • MM = Merry Meet
  • Round shape for wheel of the year, cycle of seasons
  • Skins are different colors, but the inside is the same chocolate, because we are all related
  • Associations with the colors:
    • Red = South
    • Green = West
    • Dark Brown = North
    • Yellow = East
    • Orange = For the Solar God
    • Light Brown = For the Earth Mother
  • Rotate the M & M:
    • M = 13th letter of alphabet, and there are often 13 members in a coven
    • 3 = Triple Goddess, three phases of moon
    • W = Witchcraft, Wiccan
    • E = Enlightenment

Spell for Today – BANISHING OIL



What you will need:

-1/2 oz olive oil
7 drops pepper oil (add cayenne pepper to olive oil if you wish)
-10 drops peppermint oil – or peppermint essence from icing part of a grocers plus olive oil.

Goddess of the Day – Fortuna



From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fortuna (equivalent to the Greek goddess Tyche) was the goddess of fortune and personification of luck in Roman religion. She might bring good luck or bad: she could be represented as veiled and blind, as in modern depictions of Justice, and came to represent life’s capriciousness. She was also a goddess of fate: as Atrox Fortuna, she claimed the young lives of the princeps Augustus’ grandsons Gaius and Lucius, prospective heirs to the Empire.

Her father was said to be Jupiter and like him, she could also be bountiful (Copia). As Annonaria she protected grain supplies. June 11 was sacred to her: on June 24 she was given cult at the festival of Fors Fortuna.

Flower Meaning, Symbolize, and Spiritual Meaning – Pink Flowers

From uniguide.com

Pink flowers evoke feelings of love, tenderness, grace, and more. From the delicate petals of a cosmos to the hot pink blooms of a dahlia, pink flowers hold important symbolic meaning for many people around the world. Perhaps it’s because the color pink is such an elegant blend of the passionate intensity of red and the pure divinity of white. In addition, the color pink comes in a wide range of hues, which can convey an even wider range of emotions and sentiments.

In this post, we’ll explore pink flower symbolism and meaning, types of flowers that are pink, and appropriate occasions in which to give them.

“A profusion of pink roses being ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring.”

– William Carlos Williams

Types of Flowers that Are Pink

Before we go into more detail on pink flower symbolism, I thought you might be interested in a list of flowers that are pink or which come in predominantly pink hues. There’s a splendidly wide variety. Here are some examples:





Cherry blossom









Gerbera daisy












Sweet pea



What do pink flowers symbolize?

Pink flowers symbolize a variety of positive attributes. Here’s a quick list of those qualities:

New romantic love

Platonic love











However, it’s important to keep in mind that pink flower symbolism can have slight variations depending on the type of flower. For example, pink roses symbolize love, both new romantic love and platonic love. While pink clematis flowers signify long-term ties with family and friends as well as success and personal growth. Pink lilies, on the other hand, symbolize purity and innocence. And pink cherry blossoms symbolize new beginnings and renewal. Furthermore, pink lotus flowers signify spiritual growth and transformation. For further reading on specific types of flowers that are pink and their meanings, you can click on the flower names listed above.

When to Give Pink Flowers

When it comes to the best occasions to give pink flowers, you have a range of options to choose from. White red roses and other flowers send a clear message of romantic love, pink flower meaning is more nuanced. Yes, they can imply romantic love. However, they’re also appropriate to convey platonic affection. For example,  you can give them to female relatives, young girls, co-workers, and, of course, men who like the color pink!

Pink flowers are also appropriate for weddings, new baby celebrations and spiritual ceremonies, as well as anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, and more. In a way, pink flowers are like yellow flowers in that they are very safe and usually appreciated by all.

I Ching

Hexagram Thirty/30

Li / Igniting

Fire sparks more Flames:
The Superior Person holds an inner Fire that ignites passion in every heart it touches, until all the world is enlightened and aflame.

With so searing a flame, success will not be denied you.
Take care to be as peaceful and nurturing as the cow in the meadow; you are strong enough to be gentle.


A Promethean flame is delivering light and heat to the situation at hand.
This radiance will cause such an alchemical transformation of circumstances that the changes will seem magical, miraculous.
Yet they are only shifts of perspective and attitude that bring clarity.
The passions kindled by this fire must be harnessed and used judiciously, or they threaten to consume your hopes and dreams.

Animal Spirit Guide or Helper

Today’s Animal Spirit Guide comes from Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guide by Steven D, Farmer


“Indulge your creative, imaginative, and magical side through some form of artistic expression”

Whatever the artist vehicle through which you express your most creative self — whether it’s drawing, poetry, painting, music, acting or any other form of creative expression — make it a priority in your life by devoting some time, energy, and perhaps even money toward this artistic pursuit. Let the longing of your heart determine what the form of your imaginative expression is, but let it be one that elicits passion, and purpose. Allow it to evoke as needed, without acceding to any internal perfectionism about the end product. The process itself is where the magic is. Let that alone be your satisfaction and delight you’ll be pleased with the results.

Whether this avocation continues as a hobby or turns into something you receive compensation for, never do it solely for the money. There’s need to act out the starving artist scenario, but when you make monetary rewards your primary goal, you risk stifling the creative pulse that emanates from the core of who you are, potentially comprising the integrity of your artistic gift to the world. Should you ever be uncertain about following your passion with this kind of expression, take some time to observe children. Notice how innocently and imaginatively the play in their world, particularly when unhindered by social restrictions and artificial boundaries. The is a reflection of the magical child who’s inside you, begging to explore and be expressed. So have fun!

Witches’ Rune

From summergoddess.wordpress.com


The Rings Rune implies important alliances and agreements.

Drawing this rune can suggest aligning your energies with another toward the successful completion of your goals.

The Rings Rune symbolizes all bonds.

You can look forward to important gatherings soon or the dissolution of joint ventures. Even facing an enemy straight on.

More routinely, this rune will suggest being charmed by the superficial or just going through the motions.


From learnreligions.com


F is for Fearn or Fern, which is associated with the Alder tree. The Alder is representative of the evolving spirit. Connected with the month of March and the spring equinox, Alder is the symbol of Bran in Celtic mythology. In The Mabinogion, Bran laid himself across a river as a bridge so that others might cross–likewise, the Alder bridges that magical space between earth and the heavens. It is also associated with oracular powers–Bran’s head was an oracle in legend.

Alders are often found in swampy, boggy areas, and conveniently, their wood doesn’t rot when it gets wet. In fact, if left to soak in water, it becomes hardened. This came in handy when early Britons were building strongholds in bogs. The city of Venice, Italy, was originally built upon piles of Alder wood. Once it’s dry, though, Alder tends to be less than durable.

Fearn Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Keep in mind that you are an individual… but so is everyone else. When you look at someone, see the unusual which makes them themselves–and allow them to see that uniqueness in you. Be a mediator, a bridge, between people who may be having a disagreement.

Magical Aspects: Follow your instinct. Others will turn to you for advice and counsel during spiritual disagreements, and it’s your job to be the mediator and voice of reason.

February 24, 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 

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS ON FEBRUARY 24, then you possess a charitable and supportive nature that is the typical Piscean. Since your birthday horoscope sign is Pisces, you have an overflow of creative ability and know what you want out of life. Not many of us can say that. You are very original in your ideas and love to play with innovative schemes.

Nevertheless, sometimes, you cannot make up your mind about which goal to pursue next. Everything you set out to do is based on making your world a better place.

There is nothing wrong with this, as you have to live with your choices in life. It is better to say that you tried than not to have anything to say. You who were born on this day try to stay positive Pisceans.

Pisces with birthday February 24 are very charming. To say that you have a few friends would be an understatement. You make friends that come from all classes and cultures. Your simple ability to gain the trust of people makes you a great candidate to work in the social affairs department within an organization.

If today is your birthday, you care about the welfare of others and would take a cut in salary to be able to perform these duties. You have the remarkable ability to master budgeting, and you stay away from charge accounts if at all possible. You believe it is not how much you make but rather how you spend your earnings.

In relationships, people with a February 24 birthday desire a long-term romance. You can fall in love numerous times. You are a giver, so you like to please your partner. You as a Pisces so you tend to put your lover first, however, making sacrifices that could prove to be of a disadvantage.

I know you say you do not mind taking a back seat, but you hold your disappointment inside which can wear you down mentally. Maybe you should look at why you make such allegiances that are not to your liking.

In the meantime, your birthday love astrology asks you to make your ideal partner list of requirements realistically to avoid displeasure, irritation, and confrontations.

Some of the best attributes of a Pisces birthday on 24 February, are that you are non-judgmental. Your attitude is that everyone desires equality and justice. Your kind heart could be a strength or a weakness. As a result, you cannot be in ten places at one time.

Pisces, you are good but not that good. Stop spreading yourself so thin that it gives you headaches or to the point that you detach from others. When you suffer, others suffer with you. Focus, dear Pisces, on your aspirations. Do not let small issues come in your way.

According to your birthday meaning, you are creative and can exercise your natural ability to bring harmony into the lives of others. You instinctively want to be helpful. This is why people love you.

Sometimes though, you can be inconclusive and self-centered. Just be straightforward, and you will be able to walk through your decision-making process with confidence.

Can we talk about your health? since your zodiac birthday is Pisces, there is a need to find a more practical approach to maintaining what you have. The body, inside and out, needs a workout. This is not something you can do once or twice a month. Eating right, getting your rest and exercising should be a part of a routine.

There is no overnight success story when it comes to preserving your body. There is no such thing as a magic potion that will quickly give you the results necessary to live a healthy and long life. Get off the stick and get on the ball, Pisces. It’s time to bounce.

Concluding, Pisces, those of you who were born on February 24, are charitable people. You need to put your goals and desires first, and then you can make others happy. If it makes you miserable, you can be of no use to anyone. Take care and start exercising and eating right. You have all the necessary equipment to live a long life.

Moon Alert

After 4 AM EST today (1 AM PST) there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will be surprised today about how much you emotionally identify with your possessions. (“My precious!”) This is why you might not be willing to lend something to someone. Or you might find yourself feeling you have to defend yourself where there is really nothing at stake.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today and tomorrow the Moon is in your sign, which can make you more sensitive to the feelings of others. Therefore, your feelings and reactions might be heightened. Nevertheless, the good news is that your luck will be a tiny bit better. Ask the universe for a favour!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a curious day because with Mars in your sign, you are confident and proactive. Nevertheless, today the Moon is hiding in your chart, which will make you be tempted to withdraw from others and keep your feelings secret. “I wasn’t there. I didn’t see anything.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your emotional contact with friends and members of groups is important to you today. You might feel more protective and supportive than usual to someone. This is a good day to examine your overall goals and make sure they are an expression of what you (not others) want to do.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you are noticed more than usual. Details of your intimate and personal life seem to be on public display for some reason. Do be aware of this in case you have to do some damage control. This is a good day for any kind of public relations work or sales.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you have a strong urge to get away from your daily routine and go off somewhere to find adventure or do something different. Ideally, you would love to travel. At least, you can be a tourist in your own town. Enjoy meeting new friends from foreign countries and different backgrounds. Do something different!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You are a people pleaser; nevertheless, today your response to others might be more emotional and more intense. (This will surprise you as well as others.) You might find that you want something that someone else has. Or perhaps you have strong opinions about an arrangement with shared possessions?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today and tomorrow the Moon is opposite your sign, which means personal relationships and partnerships will be a stronger focus for you. Conflicts will be more emotional. Therefore, guard against knee-jerk reactions. Avoid saying or doing anything you will later regret.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Very likely, today you will have to put the emotional or practical considerations of someone else before your own. You might perform a service for someone or do a favour for them. Meanwhile, your health or something to do with your pet might concern you today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Romance will be more passionate and emotional today. In part, this is because it’s difficult for you to conceal your feelings from others today. Don’t worry about this. You might also feel overprotective about your kids or the care of someone else.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today it will please you to withdraw to the privacy of your home and enjoy relaxing in familiar surroundings. Some of you might have a heart-to-heart discussion with a family relative, especially a female. Try to be lighthearted and laid-back about things.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today you feel a need to have a connection with others, which is why you want your conversations with daily contacts to be meaningful. You won’t be satisfied with superficial chitchat or shallow conversations. You want the skinny about something. Wazzup?

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Debra Jo Rupp (1951) shares your birthday today. You are sensitive to the world around you and the feelings of others. Therefore, avoid negative energy, which will drain you. Take care of yourself this year because service to others will be an important theme. It’s also a good year for a personal makeover.
