Good Morning WOTC! Wishing You and Yours A Very Blessed and Joyous Day! c. 2017


The Cauldron Chant

We form the Circle,
The Circle most round.
We form the Chalice,
The Chalice now found.

We call the Goddess,
to meet the great need.
We call the God,
To plant His fertile seed.

We call the quarters,
which we call four.
We summon the powers,
that contain the force.

We stir the Cauldron,
from which we were born.
We call the Gods,
from whom we were torn.

We say the words,
which lead us round.
We pass the kiss,
with our lovers found.

We face our dreams,
in nights psychic flight.
We face our hopes,
in bright moon of the night.

We face our fears,
on the Dark Lords Horn.
We face our failure,
in the Mothers new planted corn.

We live our lives,
druming and dancing on the meadow.
We confront our Death,
in the dancing moon light shadow.

Our paths run quickly,
on fleet foot and wing.
Our Circle is joyous,
with our Queens and our Kings.

Let our little Circle be happy,
with Bell, Bowl or Bow.
And form now this Circle,
with gracious Love, Joy and Hope.

A Pagan Saturday c. 2016

A Pagan Saturday

Saturday is the day of the week between Friday and Sunday. It is the either the sixth or seventh day of the week as discussed below. Jews and many Christians believe that God established the 7-day weekly cycle at Creation as related in the Book of Genesis chapters 1 and 2.

Origins of the name
It was named no later than the second century for the planet (Saturn), which controlled the first hour of that day according to Vettius Valens. The planet was named for the Roman god of agriculture Saturn. It has been called dies Saturni (“Saturn’s Day”), through which from it entered into Old English as Sæternesdæg and gradually evolved into the word “Saturday”.

Saturday is the only day of the week in which the English name comes from Roman mythology. The English names of all of the other days of the week come from Germanic mythology. In India, Saturday is Shanivar, based on Shani, the Vedic God manifested in the planet Saturn. In the Thai solar calendar of Thailand, the day is named from the Pali word for Saturn, and the color associated with Saturday is purple. The Celtic languages also name this day for Saturn: Irish an Satharn or dia Sathuirn, Scottish Gaelic Disathairne, Welsh dydd Sadwrn, Breton disadorn.

In Jewish tradition Saturday is the Shabbat. Christianity adopted this tradition in terms of the Sabbath. Thus, in many languages the Saturday is named after the Sabbath. Eastern Orthodox churches distinguish between the Sabbath (Saturday) and the Lord’s Day (Sunday). Roman Catholics put so little emphasis on that distinction that many among them follow – at least in colloquial language – the Protestant practice of calling Sunday the sabbath (see Sabbath in Christianity). Quakers traditionally refer to Saturday as “Seventh Day” eschewing the “pagan” origin of the name. In Islamic countries, Fridays are holidays, however they are considered as the sixth day of the week.

In the Eastern Orthodox Church Saturdays are days on which the Theotokos (Mother of God) and All Saints are commemorated, The day is also a general day of prayer for the dead, because it was on a Saturday that Jesus lay dead in the tomb. The Octoechos contains hyms on these themes, arranged in an eight-week cycle, that are chanted on Saturdays throughout the year. At the end of services on Saturday, the dismissal begins with the words: “May Christ our True God, through the intercessions of his most-pure Mother, of the holy, glorious and right victorious Martyrs, of our reverend and God-bearing Fathers…”. For the Orthodox, Saturday is never a strict fast day. When a Saturday falls during one of the fasting seasons (Great Lent, Nativity Fast, Apostles’ Fast, Dormition Fast) the fasting rules are always lessened to an extent. The Great Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross and the Beheading of St. John the Baptist are normally observed as strict fast days, but if they fall on a Saturday or Sunday, the fast is lessened.

In Scandinavian countries, Saturday is called Lördag or Löverdag etc., the name being derived from the old word laugr (hence Icelandic name Laugardagur), meaning bath, thus Lördag equates to bath-day. This is due to the Viking usage of bathing on Saturdays.

Today, Saturday is officially called Samstag in all German-speaking countries, however, there are two names for this day in modern Standard German. Samstag is always used in Austria, Liechtenstein, the German speaking part of Switzerland and generally used in southern and western Germany. It derives from Old High German sambaztac, which itself derives from Greek Σάββατο, and this Greek word derives from Hebrew שבת (Shabbat). However, the current German word for sabbath is Sabbat. The second name for Saturday in German is Sonnabend, which derives from Old High German sunnunaband, and is closely related to the Old English word sunnanæfen. It means literally “Sun eve”, i.e. “The day before Sunday”. Sonnabend is generally used in northern and eastern Germany, and was also the official name for Saturday in East Germany. In the Westphalian dialects of Low Saxon, in East Frisian Low Saxon and in the Saterland Frisian language, Saturday is called Satertag, also akin to Dutch Zaterdag, which has the same linguistic roots as the English word Saturday.

Similarly, the Romance languages follow the Greek usage, so that their word for “Saturday” is also a variation on “Sabbath”: the Italian is sabato, the French is samedi, the Spanish and Portuguese is sábado and the Romanian is sâmbătă.

The modern Maori name for it, Rahoroi, means “washing-day”. For other languages, see Days of the week Planetary table.

Position in the week
The three Abrahamic religions, via their original languages, regard Saturday as the seventh day of the week (Judaism via Hebrew, Christianity via Ecclesiastical Latin, and Islam via Arabic) by naming Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday as the second through fifth days of the week. This is concordant with the European Pagan tradition, which named the days of the week after the seven Classical planets (in order Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn), naming the first day of the week for the Sun, perceived as most important, and moving to those perceived as lesser.

The Slavic languages of Eastern Europe regard Saturday as the sixth day of the week by naming Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday as the second, fourth, and fifth days of the week, although their name for Wednesday, middle, would imply that Saturday is the seventh day of the week.

Beginning in the twentieth century, many Europeans have considered Saturday the sixth (penultimate) day of the week, and Sunday the last[citation needed]. This current European labour-oriented convention has been formalized by ISO 8601 which is used by businesses such as airlines in drawing up timetables, etc

Goddess of the Day – Blodeuwedd



Blodeuwedd was created out of flowers by Gwydion to wed Llew Llaw Gyffes. She betrayed Llew, either because she had no soul, being non-human, or because she resented being his chattel, or because the triplet of one woman and two men must play itself out in Welsh myth, and Llew Llaw Gyffes must die. At any rate, she fell in love with Goronwy and, wishing to be rid of Llew, she tricked out of him the clearly supernatural and ritual manner in which only he could be killed: neither by day nor night, indoors nor out of doors, riding nor walking, clothed nor naked, nor by any weapon lawfully made. She asked him to explain this, and he did: he could be killed only if it were twilight, wrapped in a fish net, with one foot on a cauldron and the other on a goat, and if the weapon had been forged during sacred hours when such work was forbidden. Blodeuwedd convinced him to demonstrate how impossible such a position was to achieve by chance, and when he was in it, het lover Goronwy leapt out and struck. Llew was transformed into an eagle and eventually restored to human form, after which he killed Goronwy. Blodeuwedd was transformed into an owl, to haunt the night in loneliness and sorrow, shunned by all other birds.

Flower Meaning, Symbolize, and Spiritual Meaning

From uniguide.com

Orange flower symbolism and meanings include healing and well-being, energy, vitality, enthusiasm, balance, fun, pleasure, and more. In this post, we’ll explore the symbolism and meaning of orange flowers as well as occasions in which to give them.

Types of Flowers that Are Orange

Before we go into more detail on the symbolic meaning of orange flowers, I thought you’d be interested in seeing a list of some of the kinds of flowers that come in orange or mainly orange hues. There is a wide variety. Here are some:

Bird of Paradise











Orange lily and tiger lily

Orange rose






What do orange flowers symbolize?

Blending the deep passion and energy of red with the sunny warmth of yellow, the color orange can represent many things. So, orange flowers present a range of opportunities in which to give them as gifts or reasons to plant them in your garden.

A vibrant color, orange can evoke strong responses in many people. Yet, while red flowers are synonymous with romantic love, orange flower meanings can be more nuanced. For example, here is a list of qualities that orange flowers represent:

Health and healing

Vitality and well-being






Joy and happiness






(Just a note: Different types of orange flowers have their own set of meanings. For more details on some of them, just click on the flower names with links in the section above.) {Each flower, if possible, will be getting their own post after I go through the color}

Healing and Well-being

Generally, when people aren’t feeling well, they can tolerate orange foods, like tangerines and peaches, more easily than other foods. So, with bright color, orange flowers exude positive energy for feeling good.

So, orange flowers make great gifts for loved ones who are dealing with a health challenge or who are trying to get into better shape.

In fact, the color orange is associated with the second chakra, or energy center, in the body, which is called the sacral chakra, or Svadhisthana in Sanskrit.

The sacral chakra governs emotional and sexual energy as well as overall mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. In essence, when the sacral chakra is balanced, we feel like we’re flourishing.

So, giving orange flowers or having them in your environment, as well as using the essential oils from orange flowers, is conducive to opening and balancing your sacral chakra and boosting vitality.

Fire and Enthusiasm

Orange flower symbolism also includes fire and enthusiasm. So, orange flowers are the perfect gift or addition to the home when you want to liven things up and even spark your creativity.

Any zany loved ones in your life?

In addition, the color orange is a little zany. So, for a romantic partner, friend, or other loved one who is more off-beat, orange flowers can be the perfect gift. Needless to say, they can also help to liven up what might otherwise be a boring garden.

In conclusion, orange flowers can generate strong feelings in many people. So, if you have loved ones who appreciate the color orange’s special qualities, or you are one of those people, you have a variety of flower options to choose from when it comes to surrounding yourself with vibrant beauty.

February 25th Divination Journal – Part 1


Today’s Tarot card reading comes from The Celtic Dragon Tarot by D. J. Conway. With art done by Lisa Hunt. This deck is unique as the cards are never read in reverse. Copyright 2001


Temperance – Major Arcana Pages 40 to 41

New perspectives.

In perfect harmony, three dragons coil and turn through the skies, weaving strands of spiritual energy with their claws. The sky itself holds repeating patterns of spirals, symbolizing the primal matter of creation-destruction that is all around us. One dragon is blue; another is shades of red; the third , shades of green. Red symbolizes vibrant life energies and sexual drive; green the productiveness of the mind; blue, the watery instability of emotion. All these must be twined together in equal parts in order to temper and modify life experiences, so that what is out of balance (intemperate) can be corrected. An elongated, golden lemniscate (a figure eight) of eternal life twine through the spinning circle of dragons, representing that a balanced life cannot exist without the important element of spirit.

Divinatory Meaning: This card may presage a period of creative inspiration, or a time of harmony and peacefulness. Self-control and inner guidance will get you through difficulties. A trip gives you a new perspective on an old issue. You need to atapt to new circumstances.  


Two of Swords – Minor Arcana Pages 88 to 89

Tension; Indecision

A Fire dragon holds two long swords in its claws, as it faces a man across an opening, blazing vent in the rocky ground. The only connection to the other side is a narrow bridge without railings. The man hesitates, one foot on the bridge, one foot on solid ground. One of his hands are outstretched to take a sword, but he must cross to get one. Celtic spirals are craved into the stark stones of the surrounding landscape. The bridge represents the link between the conscious and subconscious minds. The tenuous area of the mind can be a frightening place when one is learning to join the psychic senses with everyday, common-sense deductions in order to make better decisions. The only way to cross the bridge is to walk across without analyzing the potential for defeat or looking down at the dangerous fires below. The strength to take action can be drawn from knowledge of the meaning of the Celtic spirals; any momentary failure can be a stepping stone to a new opportunity.

Divinatory Meaning: There is tension and indecision in relationships or friendships. You are having difficulty gaining a sense of balance because you have no definite plans to the direction you want to go. You are faced with having to balance two important things in life without being able to make a firm decision. 


Eight of Wands – Minor Arcana Pages 72 to 73

Movement; urgency.

Eight dragons fly across a deep, mysterious void of a cosmic sky, each one holding a crystal-topped wand. Starlight flashes of the crystal tips of the wand. The star are spiritual beacons that guide those who journey through life. Oftentimes, those on a real life journey as if they are in a bottomless void, no direction to guide them out of the situation. This is the time to call upon your personal dragon guardians, look within for spiritual direction, and use your willpower (wand) to find your way to your goal.

Divinatory Meaning: Barriers fall and events move quickly. Urgent messages of a positive nature come your way. You may take a journey; possibly by air. 


Six of Pentacles – Minor Arcana Pages 152 to 153

Just rewards

A large dragon holds out a claw filled with coins to an old man with a cane. Beside the dragon, a little girl in tattered clothing hugs the dragon. The unlimited forces of the Universe work on the constant balancing of positive and negative. All we need do is seek and ask for the help we need. The child represents the hidden seed of trust and confidence within each of us that leads to a new cycle, even though we may be in the midst of sorrow. The child is completely unafraid of universal forces, subconsciously understanding that trust brings help and answers to our problems. Six pentacles can be seen on the cobblestones, leading from the struggling man to the glowing dragon. Our paths are full of signposts, directing us away from the negative and to the positive, if only we will be observant.

Divinatory Meaning: You will be receiving what is due you, positive or negative. Someone repays you a loan of money or time. Revive your outlook on life by helping others who are in need.


From Llondonverse.com


The rune is an indication of the new phase beginning in a person’s life and the termination of the old one. The rune symbolizes the future changes that are yet to happen in the night. It speaks of ending one part of life and how a man goes out of his childhood frame. This means it must be left behind to attain manhood.

Witches’ Rune

From psychic-revelation.com

The Black Rune

The Black Rune – Keywords: Difficulty, pain.

Meanings: This is a rune of difficulty and negative influences will rule your life for a time, but as all difficulties are a learning experience it will lead to improved personal perspective and progress on your life’s path. Always consult the surrounding runes with this stone. If it lies with a positive stone it indicates that the pain of this experience will lead to a beneficial change in circumstances.


From learnreligions.com 


T stands for Tinne, or Teine, the Holly tree. This evergreen plant is connected to immortality, unity, courage, and the stability of hearth and home. Pronounced chihnn-uh by the Celts, the wood of the Holly was often used in the construction of weapons, and is known as a plant of warriors and protectors.

In the pre-Christian British Isles, the Holly was often associated with protection–planting a hedge around your home would keep malevolent spirits out, thanks in no small part to the sharp spikes on the leaves. In Celtic myth, the concept of the Holly King and the Oak King symbolizes the changing of the seasons, and the transition of the earth from the growing time to the dying season.

When Christianity moved into the Celtic lands, the new religion associated the Holly plant with the story of Jesus. The poky spikes on the leaves represent the crown of thorns worn by Jesus on the cross, and the bright red berries symbolize his blood.

Tinne Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Hang a sprig of Holly in your home to protect your family in your absence. Soak the leaves in spring water under a full moon, and then use the water as a blessing for people or items you wish to protect. There is strength to be found in standing together, and ultimately protection comes from honor and trust.

Magical Aspects: Develop the ability to respond quickly and wisely to your intuition. Learn to overcome and adapt to new situations, and to respond immediately to changes in your spiritual environment. Trust your instinct, but don’t let your heart rule over your head.
