A Thought for Today – A Witch’s Chant

From poets.org

A Witch’s Chant

by James Hogg

Thou art weary, weary, weary,
        Thou art weary and far away,
    Hear me, gentle spirit, hear me,
        Come before the dawn of day.

I hear a small voice from the hill,
The vapour is deadly, pale, and still—
A murmuring sough is on the wood,
And the witching star is red as blood.

And in the cleft of heaven I scan
The giant form of a naked man,
His eye is like the burning brand,
And he holds a sword in his right hand.

All is not well. By dint of spell,
Somewhere between the heaven and hell
There is this night a wild deray,
The spirits have wander’d from their way.

The purple drops shall tinge the moon
As she wanders through the midnight noon;
And the dawning heaven shall all be red
With blood by guilty angels shed.

Be as it will, I have the skill
To work by good or work by ill;
Then here’s for pain, and here’s for thrall,
And here’s for conscience, worst of all.

Another chant, and then, and then,
Spirits shall come or Christian men—
Come from the earth, the air, or the sea,
Great Gil-Moules, I cry to thee!

Sleep’st thou, wakest thou, lord of the wind,
Mount thy steeds and gallop them blind;
And the long-tailed fiery dragon outfly
The rocket of heaven, the bomb of the sky.

Over the dog-star, over the wain,
Over the cloud, and the rainbow’s mane,
Over the mountain, and over the sea,
    Haste—haste—haste to me!

Then here’s for trouble, and here’s for smart,
And here’s for the pang that seeks the heart;
Here’s for madness, and here’s for thrall,
And here’s for conscience, the worst of all!

With fire and air, I bless this vehicle

And return me safely to my home
In the name of the goddess
I bless this vehicle
In the name of the god
I protect this vehicle

And all who travel in it
So Mote It Be

Goddess Of The Day: BENTEN



Shigato Hajime (Japan)

Themes: Luck; Wealth; Beauty

Symbols: Boats; Dragons; Guitars; Snakes; Saltwater

About Benten:

As the Japanese goddess steering the New Year’s Treasure Ship, Benten is a perfect figure to call on for financial improvements this year. She is the only goddess of luck in Japan and is referred to as queen of the seas and patroness of gamblers.

Japanese women invoke her to bring beauty and fortune into their lives. Benten is depicted as riding a golden dragon, playing a biwa (guitar), and sending out white snakes with her missies. Her robe bears a jewel that grants wishes.

To Do Today:

To welcome Benten’s prosperity into your home, sprinkle a little saltwater on the threshold today. Or, to generate beauty within and without, soak in a bath of Epsom salts while listening to guitar music. The Shigato Hajime festival honors the beginning of the work week

in Japan, where it is believed that good omens for work begin today. If you want to get a peek at how your employment will fare this year, try divination by dice (a traditional gambler’s tool). Hold one die in your hand, ask for Benten to provide a sign, then roll it. The results can be interpreted as follows:

(1) a negative omen; (2) feeling torn between two good options; (3) a good omen; (4) financial security (5) not much material change, but improvements in interoffice relationships (6) an excellent omen; roll again. If you get two more sixes, Benten’s treasures will be yours!

Flower Meaning, Symbolize, and Spiritual Meaning

Daisy Flower Meaning, Symbolism & Mythology from uniguide.com

Daisy flower meaning and symbolism includes new beginnings, hope, innocence, fun, affection, and other sweet attributes. Daisies are part of the Asteraceae family of flowers, which includes over 32,000 species. Because of their popularity and the fact that daisies can be found on every continent except Antarctica, they are subjects in the mythology and folklore of many cultures around the world. This post will include some of those stories, as well as daisy color and spiritual meanings.

(As a side note, sunflowers are also part of the aster family of flowers, but because they are so distinct and have slightly different meanings, I wrote a separate post on sunflower meanings that you can read here.

“I keep stars in my pockets and wear daisies in my hair but I tuck you tenderly in the folds of my heart and take you everywhere.”
– Melody Lee

What does a daisy symbolize?

Here’s a quick list of what daisies symbolize. We’ll go into more detail on these throughout this post:

  • New Beginnings
  • Hope
  • Innocence
  • Fertility
  • Motherhood
  • Fun
  • Affection
  • Fidelity
  • Stardust

Daisy Symbolism: New Beginnings

Around the world daisy flowers are symbols of new beginnings. Blooming in spring, these charming flowers remind us of fresh starts, sunshine, and renewal. Because of this, they are often given as gifts or planted to welcome new babies into the world.

The name “daisy” actually comes from an Old English term that translates to “day’s eye.” The reason is that, like lotus flowers, daisies open up in the morning to take in the day’s sunshine and then close up again in the evening. So, the daisy reminds us that with each day, there is an opportunity to begin again.


Because they symbolize new beginnings, daisy flowers are also symbols of hope. They remind us that hope is one of the most powerful tools we have for manifesting better outcomes and a better world. Even disappointments can bring new opportunities. As the saying goes, “When one door closes and another one opens.”

Daisy Meaning: Innocence

As they are symbols of new beginnings and hope, daisy and aster flower meaning is also associated with innocence. As a result, these special flowers are representative of babies and children.

It’s important to keep in mind that innocence can apply to adults too. In this way, daisy meaning is akin to what the Buddhists describe as “having a beginner’s mind.” It means to embody a way of being and an approach to life and situations with the curiosity and enthusiasm of a child. This way, you benefit from having a fresh perspective.

Fertility and Motherhood

Just as they are associated with springtime, newborns and babies, daisies also symbolize fertility and motherhood. In fact, as you’ll read about later in this post, daisy flowers were associated with the Norse goddess Freya, who was a fertility goddess.

Daisy Symbolism: Fun

There is an easy-breezy aspect to daisy flowers. They bloom in spring, when nature is waking up, and they grow easily in a variety of conditions. Not to mention, these flowers are easy to draw. In fact, they were probably the first flowers that many of us drew as kids.

As daisies are associated with children, they are also associated with fun and lightheartedness. After all, children naturally love to laugh and have a good time.


How many of us have plucked the petals of a daisy as we played the game “He loves me, he loves me not” or “She loves me, she loves me not”? Because daisies grow easily in many locations, they are often the wildflowers picked spontaneously for a bouquet to give to someone you have a crush on. Thus, daisy flower meaning also includes affection and love.

In fact, in Victorian England, where flower symbolism was a popular pastime, giving daisies to someone meant that you returned their affection.

Daisy Meaning: Fidelity

Many of us have made daisy chains by connecting the stems of daisies together. This pastime goes back hundreds of years, to a time when daisy chains were worn as head wreaths or belts. However, the daisy chain is more than a pretty garland, as they symbolize fidelity and eternal love.


The Latin name for the Asteraceae family of flowers comes from the Latin word for “star,” which is “aster.” These flowers not only resemble bright stars, they’re also named for the Greek goddess Astraea who turned into a star. (You can read more about Astraea in the section on Greek mythology below.)

As symbols for stars, daisies remind us of something fundamental, which is that we all originated from the same source. As Joni Mitchell sang in her song “Woodstock”:

“We are stardust
Billion year old carbon…”

Daisy Color Meanings

Daisies come in a variety of bright colors, and each has special meanings. Here are some of those qualities:

White Daisy Flower Meanings

With their white petals and yellow centers, white daisies symbolize innocence and the other classic daisy traits, such as babies, motherhood, hope, and new beginnings. White daisies make lovely gifts for new parents and newborns.

Yellow Daisy Meaning

Like sunflower symbolism, yellow daisies symbolize joy, childish fun, hope, and good luck. They make lovely gifts for friends or anyone whose spirits you want to lift.

Orange Daisy Flower Meanings

Orange aster flowers symbolize health, healing, and optimism. They also symbolize zany, off-beat fun.

Pink Daisies

Pink daisies symbolize affection and love, including both platonic and romantic love. They are ideal gifts and lovely to plant in gardens for new babies, new moms, or friends and family.

Red Daisy Flower Meanings

Red daisy flowers are positive symbols for wealth and prosperity. In addition, like other red flowers, they symbolize romantic love. Because the nature of these flowers is lighthearted and fun, red daisies make lovely gifts for new crushes.

In addition, as symbols of eternity and fidelity, they make wonderful gifts for long-term partners, especially when you want to rekindle the flames in your romance or reconfirm your commitment to each other.

Purple Daisy Meaning

Many daisies come in purple hues. So, like orange daisies, purple aster flowers symbolize zany fun and spontaneity. In addition, as purple is the color of peace and understanding, like other purple flowers, a purple daisy represents the kind of hope and optimism that brings people together and heals misunderstandings. Thus, it is a flower that represents unity.

Blue Daisy Meanings

As with other blue flower meanings, blue daisies symbolize long-term loyalty and trust. They’re also helpful symbols for visualization. Like wishing on a star, focusing on a blue daisy in prayer or meditation can help you to calm your mind and envision positive outcomes.

Green Daisy Flower Meaning

Green daisies symbolize new beginnings, renewal, and growth. So, they are helpful symbols for new creative, business, or other endeavors.

Daisy Spiritual Meanings

On a spiritual level, daisy flowers represent spiritual faith and the eternal life of the soul. They also represent the possibility that we all have the opportunity to begin again, no matter the mistakes we’ve made in our past. For some, they are also symbols of reincarnation.

Associated Spirit Animals

Because they grow on every continent except Antarctica, the daisy plays an important role in the natural ecosystems where they grow. As a result, they share synergies with the wild animals and insects in their natural habitats.

For example, rabbits and deer love to eat daisy flowers. In addition, insects including ladybugsspiders, damselflies, and dragonflies prey on the insects that eat daisies. Therefore, they help to protect the life force of the flowers.

Furthermore, birds, including finches, sparrows, cardinals, and towhees, are attracted to daisies because they eat their seeds or the insects that live in their ecosystems.

Furthermore, the ancient Greeks would dry and crush the roots of daisy flowers and feed them to bees if they were sickly.1

On a spiritual level, daisies share synergies with the rabbit spirit animal because they are symbols of fertility and new beginnings. In addition, as symbols of fidelity and eternal love, they share symbolic meaning with birds, of which the majority, including eagles and crows, are monogamous.

Daisy Mythology and Folklore

Because they grow on nearly every continent on Earth, daisy and aster flowers have appeared in the myths and folklore of many cultures around the world. Here are some of those stories:

Daisy Meaning in Greek Mythology

For the ancient Greeks, daisy flowers were sacred. The Greeks made them into wreaths, which they placed in their temples. In addition, they burned their leaves to detoxify the air and drive evil spirits away.

The ancient Greeks also associated their goddess Astraea with daisy flowers. According to one Greek legend, during the Iron Age, humans began to make a lot of weapons and warfare increased. Incensed with the violence, Zeus decided to destroy the world of men with a great flood. But before he did, the gods, who had been living on Earth, left. The goddess Astraea was the last to leave. Heartbroken at the loss of life, she asked Zeus to turn her into a star.

Eventually, the flood waters receded. But all that was left of the world was mud and slime. Seeing the destruction, Astraea wept, and her tears fell as stardust. When they hit the land, they turned into daisy flowers.2

Native American Daisy Meanings

For Native Americans, daisies, like sunflowers, are associated with the life-giving attributes of the sun. The Native Americans also eat the daisy seeds and they used to use their stalks as building materials.

Daisy Meaning in the United States

In the U.S., daisies are April birth flowers. They are associated with new beginnings, happiness, and lighthearted fun.

Celtic Daisy Meaning

For the ancient Celts, daisies brought protective powers and good luck to babies and young children.

Norse Daisy Mythology

The Vikings associated daisies with their goddess Freya, who was a fertility goddess and the guardian of new mothers.


In China and Japan, daisy flowers are associated with fidelity and eternal love.

Daisy Tattoo Meaning

A daisy tattoo is a great design for a tattoo because these flowers are relatively simple in composition, yet they symbolize many positive attributes. A daisy tattoo tells the world that you are lighthearted and look for the fun in life. It can also be an ideal symbol when you are starting something new in your life. While tattoos are highly personal to each individual, hopefully understanding the qualities that daisies represent will bring deeper meaning to your tattoo.

I Ching

From psychic-revelation.com

 Hexagram Twenty – Five/25

Name: Wu Wang.

Keyphrase: Innocence.

Formed By The Trigrams: Heaven over Thunder.


General: To function most effectively you must be fully present in each and every moment.

Love: It is time to have fun. Not because you need to but just because you can.

Business: You will find that the simple approach will work the best. Let go of complex issues.

Personal: Enjoy life.


Overview: Wu Wang is about innocence and the childlike joy associated with it. Stop trying to impress others in order to gain their approval. Instead of concentrating on this aspect of life which focuses on an imagined future, focus and honor each aspect of life or work. This way you will remain open and alert. Although planning and thought are still needed, Fu is a reminder that it is never possible to foresee every contingency. Learn to react moment to moment rather than wasting too much energy on things that will probably never happen. Find the balance you need between childlike confidence and the wisdom of experience.


From numeroscop.net


Two, as one of the Core Numbers, is an Axis of Symmetry, a point of equilibrium which provides peace to your inner world. Any disturbance of this condition you perceive as a direct threat to life and well-being. It provokes you to action with the main goal of the restoration of order and harmony in the world.Intuitive confidence in the rationality and justice of the world order makes you stick to the view that all the troubles come from the people’s inability to hear and understand each other. Therefore you voluntarily assume the responsibility of a peacemaker.

Positive qualities


The list of positive qualities of the Two fully matches the list of canonical human virtues. They are good nature, peacefulness, generosity, ethic and tact based on intuition, insight and understanding of the human soul.

Add romantic, artistic nature and an exceptional sense of beauty here, and you get a genuine Masterpiece. One can only regret that it is almost impossible to have this figure in all numbers of the numerological core, and that people whose positive qualities completely supersede all the negative ones simply don’t exist.

Negative qualities

The most obvious negative qualities of the Two are the disposition to dependent position, appeasement, depression and indecisiveness.

Being passive can cause undue flexibility in matters of principle which should inevitably lead to failures in all spheres of life, and as a consequence, resentment of oneself, anger and alienation.

One should clearly see the borderline between diplomacy and commitment to the peaceful coexistence, and compliance and timidity.

Astrological Correspondence: Venus

The Empress signifies the queen of life, the ideal woman, the archetypal mother. She represents the matriarchal goddess, being part of nature, fertility, sexuality, and the generative forces.

If single, you attract attention today. Be social when you and others are so relaxed. Today scores of people amuse and interest you. You link up with people who need to be in your life.

The Temperance card represents erotic fairness and compromise, and perhaps even the necessity to calm passions in order to build up another part of your relationship. Have you been concentrating so much on the physical aspect of love that you’ve forgotten to nurture the mental, emotional, or spiritual side of things?
