All Signs

Every year, the Sun moves through all 12 signs staying for four weeks in each sign. We are now entering that four-week window when the Sun will radiate Gemini energy, making everyone more curious about everything going on around them. We’ll want to take short trips and explore the world. We will have an increased desire to pop out for coffee, grab a magazine and catch up on the latest with friends and neighbours. Many will sign up for a course or explore ways to learn something new. I love Geminis! They’re free spirited, fun-loving and have the courage to fry bacon naked.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Because you’re the “first” sign of the zodiac, there’s something about spring that really boosts your energy. If you thought you were busy and energetic before – get ready because in the next month, you’re pulling out all stops. Suddenly, you’ve got things to do, places to go and people to see! You want to take short trips. You want to learn new things and meet new people. You’re busy! You also want to entertain and redecorate at home. In addition, you feel competitive especially with group sports and kids’ activities. Meanwhile, while you juggle all this, you’re full of moneymaking ideas — and getting richer. Ka-ching!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a lovely time for you because lucky Jupiter is in your sign for the next 12 months, bringing you good fortune and giving you an edge over all the other signs. This is a major blessing! Meanwhile, for the next four weeks, the Sun will sit in one of your Money Houses, prompting you to think about cash flow, earnings and your wealth in general. It is occurring to you now that you want to make your money work for you. Not only that, you want to make what you own work for you as well. Well, of course. This makes sense: what you own should make your life easier and not the other way around. Right? How’s that working out for you?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Once a year, the Sun is in your sign for four weeks and that time has arrived. This brings you many benefits and one of them is that it’s your chance to rejuvenate and replenish yourself. The Sun in your sign will also attracts favourable situations and interesting people to you. Because fiery Mars is in your House of Communications, you identify more with your ideas. But you might be a tad stubborn this week. You might also be argumentative, which is generally not the best way to get what you want. Meanwhile, you will attract money, goods and favours to you, which encourages you to buy beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. One thing is certain: Now you clearly see what is working and what is not.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For the next four weeks, contradictory influences might affect you. On one hand, you’re happy to be reclusive and enjoy time by yourself or to work alone. On the other hand, (you have different rings), with Venus in your sign, you are charming, diplomatic and eager to schmooze with others. Both Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Friendships will promote interacting with friends and groups, particularly younger people. Meanwhile, Mars makes you identify with your possessions. You feel like you are what you own. You might even get into disputes about values or property or possessions. Trust that Jupiter’s beneficial influence will smooth things with friends and groups, because it will.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For the next four weeks, you’re more popular! Enjoy increased activity with friends and interactions with groups and organizations. In addition, fiery Mars is now in your sign, boosting your energy and urging you to assert yourself among others. It makes you more of a fighter for your rights than usual. Count on this being a productive week, mainly because you have energy to work. In fact, you have energy to burn! This is why this an ideal time for physical sports and workouts. Meanwhile, discussions with bosses, parents and important people will go well, in large measure because you look successful to people – and everyone loves a winner.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The Sun is at the top of your chart, for the next four weeks, which symbolizes that you’re cast in a spotlight that is flattering. People admire you. They see you as competent and capable, even if you don’t do anything special. (Oh yes, the power of good lighting.) This means that this window of time is perhaps the most advantageous time of the year for you to promote your agenda and demand the advantage. Therefore, go after what you want because you will likely get it. Meanwhile, Venus will smooth the way for your relations with friends and groups because it will make you ooze charm and diplomacy. In fact, for some, a friend will become a lover.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Because your desire to travel and explore more of the world is pumped in the next four weeks, please look for ways to change your daily routine or travel. You need a change of scenery! If you can’t travel, be a tourist in your own town. Expand your world through books, film, or documentaries plus talking to people from other countries and different cultures. Your interest in philosophy, religion, belief systems, politics and the law will be strong. (Actually, some of you might be more involved with the law.) This is a special time for you because your ruler Venus is at the top of your chart attracting people to you, especially related to your career. Romance with a boss or mentor figure might begin.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are a passionate sign, and in the next four weeks, your passion will intensify. Perhaps you will encounter someone who encourages powerful changes in your life? Or some psychological self-inquiry? Personally, you have a stronger than usual desire to experience life at feeling level not just an abstract, intellectual understanding. You will also be more involved with bills, taxes, debt, shared property and inheritances. Plus, your ambition is aroused because Mars is at the top of your chart. Meanwhile, your desire to travel for pleasure and escape “from all this” is strong! By all means, travel if you can because you will love it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Once a year, for four weeks, the Sun sits opposite your sign, which means symbolically – it is as far away from your sign as it can get all year. Because the Sun represents “energy”, this means you’ll be more tired and will need more sleep. (Go to bed.) This polarized position of the Sun will also give you more objectivity about your closest relationships, which is an opportunity to see how to improve you initiate to others, or react in these relationships. Meanwhile, Mars is urging you to travel and get a change of scenery; while Venus sweetens romance in a tender, affectionate away. Venus will also attract money and goodies to you. (Think of the workout you’ll get opening gifts.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’ll be busting your buns to be as productive as possible in the next four weeks because you’re setting high standards for yourself. You want to be efficient! These high standards will include your health as well as your work, which is why you might begin a new health regime, possibly a diet or an exercise program. (If you eat in the dark you don’t gain weight.) Nevertheless, despite your effort to be hard-working and efficient, relations with those who are closest to you will be lovely and rewarding because fair Venus is opposite your sign sitting in your House of Partnerships. This will make you appreciate your loved ones. In fact, this is a romantic time for your sign. Romantic and sexy! Grab opportunities to play and perhaps figure out how to swing a vacation!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Ta da! Once a year, the Sun is in the most playful part of your chart for four weeks and this time has arrived! Do what you want and set your own priorities! Fun activities with children will appeal along with sports events. This is a wonderful time for a vacation and romance. Socialize! Accept invitations! Enjoy the arts, social outings, picnics, barbecues, short trips and above all — the theatre, galleries and opportunities to enjoy musical performances and fun times with others. A work-related romance might begin for some. Admittedly, with Mars opposite your sign, you have to be patient with partners and close friends, but this will be easy because you’re happy!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Home, family and your private life will be your primary focus in the next four weeks. Many of you will be involved more than usual with a parent. You might focus on redecorating projects or reorganizing things at home. You might also enjoy relaxing among familiar surroundings. Meanwhile, Venus will encourage entertaining and socializing, so stock the fridge and invite the gang over. You will relate warmly with children. It’s a great time for games and fun. Romance will be sweet and affectionate. One thing that will make you happy and relaxed is you feel there’s no need to pretend to be who you are not. You’ll be like Popeye, “I yam what I yam!”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This day will be quite busy for you but it seems that there will be little things to really trouble you.

This Sunday you might have second thoughts about a certain move you’ve made in the previous week, most likely something related to your love life.

Be it that you just committed to someone you like or that you broke an important relationship, this solitude day will cover you in remorse and will keep you dwelling in uncertainty for quite some time.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You should be using this Sunday to exercise or at least do something for your health. Maybe it’s not the right weather outside so why not stay in and prepare yourself something healthy or search for natural cosmetic remedies or diets online.

 They are likely to surprise everyone around them with the passionate love they are capable of, only if they come across someone that will truly awake their interest.

Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence and a Spell for Sunday



Sunday from

Sunday is the first day of the week in honor of the Sun.  Constantine the Great ruled, in 321 BC, that ‘the venerable day of the sun’, should be a day of rest, although it had previously been a day of action.  The ancient Germans honored their sun goddess, known as Sunna, Sol (to the Norwegians), and Glory-of-Elves (to the Scandinavians).  In later traditions, Sol was adopted as a masculine deity.  In Greek traditions, Sunday was connected with the sun god, Helios.

Sunday Pagan Worship

c. 2019 by Lady Abyss

What you will need:

Your voice
Your body
1 bell (optional)

Find a quiet, private area, without distraction. Sit down in a comfortable position. Take a few, slow, deep breaths. Allow your body to become very relaxed. When you have done this, if you brought a bell, ring it seven times. Allow the last ring to resonate throughout your body. If you have something you want to say, to God or The Goddess, now would be a good time to do this. When you are finished, say this prayer or chant:

“I know there is a higher
being than me.
I am not alone.
You are with me,
Day and night.
You’ve rode the lows
And watched the heights.
If angels are real,
I’m sure to have a guardian.
I am so thankful
And so grateful for your hand.
You’ve blessed me.
You’ve fed me
You’ve quenched my thirst
And even dressed me.
A ‘man,
A ‘man,
And Blessed Be.”

When you are finished, ring the bell seven more times, to end the ceremony

Tarot Card

From A Guide to the Celtic Dragon Tarot by D. J. Conway and Lisa Hunt Pages 124 to 125

6 of Cups – Minor Arcana

Reunions; unexpected gifts

A little boy and girl are smiling and hugging to large Water dragons, who rise out of a pond. The children symbolize the natural psychic connections all humans possess before they are taught such a thing is false. They are freely communicating with astral creatures because it is the normal thing to do. On the flower and tree-covered banks stand six chalices. The flowers and trees represent the constant renewal of life., fed by the waters of the lake (emotional purity and balance). Tiny dragons flutter happily around the children, symbols of the potential power of even the tiniest pieces of cosmic energy. The six chalices represent the power of building in all its connotations; building of relationships, healing power, and bridges between people and/or species. By acknowledging this power of building, we acknowledge the interconnectedness of all things, animate and inanimate.

Divinatory Meaning: A reunion with old friends may be near. New opportunities present themselves; be ready to act on them. Unexpected gifts may Suprise you.

Animal Spirit Guide or Helper

From Messages from Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer Pages 83 to 85


Create a sacred space for yourself in your home and/or place of work.

A sacred space is an area in your home or workplace where you can have some privacy for contemplation, meditation, or simply a bit of quite time to think. If this isn’t possible to do at work, it becomes even more imperative that you provide this for yourself in your home. This is a space that is your territory, whether it is an entire room or a corner of your living room or bedroom. Place a cozy chair or pillow there, and set up a simple altar, one that contains a few pieces that are both personal and precious. Include a candle in your space that you can light when you are abiding there. Make your sacred space a comfortable place to hang out, with no agenda or compulsion to do anything. As Buddha said, “Don’t just do something, sit there!”

You may find all sorts of reasons or excuses not to do this, but don’t cave in to these internal objections. Make it important enough for your emotional and mental health and balance to create this kind of private sanctuary. Be sure to do nothing in particular for a good period of time while you’re there. The increasingly rapid pace of life and growing intensities in the world are even greater cause for doing so. It’s a place for solace, one where you can more closely listen to your inner voice and feelings, and tap into the Life Force inside that’s expressing itself to you.

Key words: spirituality, intuition, femininity, illusion, subconsciousness, Moon cycle, self-analysis, long-term changes.

Sabbat: Yule (midwinter)

Element: Water

Chakra No.6: mind’s eye




Duir or Dair

Pronunciation – Doo-r

Tree Association – oak

Meaning – Strength, security, resilience, endurance, wisdom, sacred spaces, leadership, and kindness. All your hard work and education have paid off. Like the oak, you stand tall and mighty. You are in a beneficial situation (family, work, financially, creative, relationship, etc.), and this circumstance will stay that way for quite a while. Trust yourself! Also, oak represents the intense energy and power of storms and wind. Symbolic of the endurance and stamina you possess that allows you to flourish and thrive.

If reversed – cowardly, uncertain, or frail. You have not been acting kindly or fairly in your leadership role. It’s ok to lack knowledge and facts, but do not make it a common practice.

Inscription and Magical Uses – Inscribe this ogham on an acorn for good luck in job interviews, courage, or pursuing justice. Duir is an excellent ogham inscription to keep at work. Helpful when working when storms, lightning, or the element air. It can also be used in healing or for those who need reminders of their resilience, profound strength, and tenacity.

I Ching


I Ching Hexagram: 4/Four

Name: Meng.

Keyphrase: Youthful Folly.

Formed By The Trigrams: Mountain over Water.


General: Patience and kindness are the keys to learning and teaching.

Love: Let go of any childhood traumas you have about relationships.

Business: Being thoughtful will help strengthen new business ideas or procedures.

Personal: Remember the pleasure of childhood and youth and imitate it. You may need to release any bad habits from that time.


Overview: Meng builds on the theme of inexperience seen in hexagram 3 (Chun). It suggests that youth (like the flowing stream) has a long way to go before it becomes a mighty river. Meng is about teaching, learning and knowledge. Ignorance should not be punished, rather it should be replaced with knowledge. When the learning is fun the student will learn more. It is a reminder that a teacher should also be a mentor, setting the scene for the way the student will behave in adulthood.




Positive qualities


The positive qualities of the Four could be described as purely men’s virtues if thousands of women didn’t have them. This is high endurance, exceptional working ability, personal organization, commitment to principles and equanimity. You are firm in your beliefs, most important of which is that nothing in this world comes for free, and any reward is to be deserved.

That’s why people of your kind are the foundation of any society. They know what to do and can implement it in practice. There is nothing heroic in your manifestations, but all your life is a feat. As a consequence, only few admire you, but everyone respects you.

Negative qualities

When someone wants to point out the Four’s weakness, they first mention their stubbornness, slowness and tediousness. From a certain point of view, so it is: you always take your time not to make mistakes, and you’ll hold your ground up to the end without losing a chance to rub your opponent’s nose in their errors.

Moreover, you never hide your skeptical attitude towards rattle heads, shallow and irresponsible people. Therefore, you are often accused of being too suspicious, and your zero-tolerance of idleness and unwillingness to waste time on idle pleasures gives others a reason to consider you sullen and hard-grained.


Goddesses and Gods – Greek Titans – Rhea, Goddess of Fertility and Motherhood and Hyperion, God of Light and Sunlight

Greek Titans – Rhea, goddess of fertility and motherhood

Rhea (Rheia, Opis, Ops) was a Titan goddess of fertility and motherhood. She was very gentle and comfortable. Her name actually means “ease” as “at ease” and therefore this was probably the reason she was interpreted and worshiped as a goddess of comfort and ease. According to some authors, she is also described as the supreme mother goddess, just like her mother Gaea was and what later her daughter Hera became, but in Orphic hymn Rhea was even described as the supreme goddess, mother of all gods and men and it is said that even Uranus and Gaea derived from her. And as if there were not enough confusion yet, according to various authors, Rhea is also described as Cybelean goddess whose home was in Phyrgia which means that they are equating her with Cybelle, Anatolian earth goddess, but to return back to mainstream belief, backed by most authors, Rhea was a daughter of Uranus and Gaea and, because she was married to her brother Cronus, she was also a queen of the Cosmos. Together they represented “eternal flow” as they gave birth to a new generation of gods who then took control of the world, just like they and other titans had done it in the past. Therefore, she was also identified as a goddess of generations.

Birth of Olympians and plot against Cronus

Rhea was very much like her mother and loved her children unconditionally but unfortunately Cronus was like his father, jealous of his children’s powers and in fear of being overthrown. She became mad when Cronus forced her to give him their children to swallow upon birth. She started plotting against him and by the time he had swallowed HestiaHeraPoseidonHades, and Demeter, Rhea decided that enough is enough. She gave birth to her last childZeusin secrecy and gave Cronus a rock, wrapped in a blanket, to swallow instead. Cronus was pleased, not knowing that Zeus was still out there, and thought he was safe from the prophecy. In Hesiod’s Theogony, it is said that Rhea brought infant Zeus to Crete and gave it to Gaea to look after him. Gaea then guided him to the secret cave beneath Mount Aegeum or Mount Dicte. Zeus was raised there and, when grown up, came to Mount Othrys as a cupbearer and mixed a potion into Cronus’ drink which made him vomit all of his children. Later, in a ten-year war, Zeus and Olympians defeated Cronus and the Titans. They became the next rulers, just like Cronus and his brothers had done in the past, when overthrowing Uranus. In the end, Rhea was the main reason that history repeated itself.

According to Diodorus Siculus, it is said that Poseidon too had escaped the cannibalism of his father and that it was Rhea who had given him to the Telchines to look after him. However, according Pausanias, Rhea had hidden Poseidon among a flock of lambs when he was next to be swallowed.

The desire of motherhood

Like mentioned in Ovid’s Fasti, Rhea was mad and angry because she was often pregnant but never truly a mother of her children due to cannibalism of Cronus who ate most of them while Zeus and, variously, Poseidon on the other hand had to be hidden away from Cronus. She was mentioned to be often in company of lions which she nursed and took care of. The goddess is also said to have helped nurturing the young Dionysus when he was brought to her by Hermes, on Zeus’ orders who had to hide him from jealous and angry Hera. She was also, according to Homeric hymn to Apollo, involved in the birth of Apollo on the island of Delos. Upon the god’s birth, she, along her sisters Tethys and Theia, washed him with pure clean water and placed him in a white garment and took care of him until Leto recovered.

Other myths

Rhea was also involved in the return of Demeter to Mount Olympus. Demeter, in grief and sorrow, withdrew herself from the rest of the gods when Persephone was abducted. When the two were reunited, Demeter, still in anger of Persephone being bound to the underworld, declined to return. However, Rhea came to Demeter and convinced her that her place is among her brothers and sisters on Mount Olympus. In Nonnus’ Dionysiaca, Rhea is also said to had given an Amethyst to Dionysus that protected him from the tyranny of madness when drinking wine.

Greek Titan – Hyperion, god of light and sunlight

Hyperion was a Titan god of light or sunlight and was associated with watching and observation from above. He was also known as a Pillar of east. Together with his other three brothers, CriusCoeus and Iapetus, they presided as the Pillars of holding Heaven and Earth apart. He was one of six sons of Uranus and Gaea and is mentioned by Apollodorus as one of the five brothers, all but Oceanus, who participated in rebellion against Uranus and later attacked him. When they overcame him, the four brothers probably held him down while Cronus castrated him. While most of the authors are identifying Hyperion as a unique character, Homer is equating Helios and Hyperion as one and the same character and it can be seen in both of his epics, the Iliad and the Odyssey.

Establishing a rhythm of days and months

Due to his diligent observation, he was first to understand the movements of the sun and the moon, as well as the other stars and seasons. He was believed to have ordered the cycles of the sun, the moon and the dawn. During his time, he married her sister Theia with whom he had three children who presided over these cycles. Helios presided over sun, Selene over the moon and Eos presided over the dawn.

If you want to learn a bit more about Selene, check the page of Theia or Sky deities.


Although there are notes of Hyperion participating in Titanomachy, there is no reference of his role in the war. It is only known that he sided with his brothers and fellow Titans against younger Olympians. And that he was in the end, after losing the war, imprisoned in Tartarus with his brothers and relatives. However, according to Aeschylus’ lost play , he was later released byZeus from Tartarus with the rest of the titans.


Animal Spirit Guide or Helper – Some Explanations About Animal Spirits

Explanation from

What is an animal spirit and who believes in them? People around the world have experienced spiritual kinships with animals for at least tens of thousands of years – from the time that humans began recording their perceptions on cave walls. And since then, it has become increasingly clear, as is evident in stories, artwork, cultural rituals, and more, that many people believe that animals are as integrated with the spirit world as we are.

In this post, we’ll explore animal spirits and animal mythology and folklore in different cultures.

When an Animal Crosses Your Path…

Explanation from

A spirit animal is a healer, messenger, or teacher that has a special relationship with an individual. A spirit animal appears in the form of an animal that has a special appeal to the individual.

Spirit animals also go by the names animal helpers, powerful allies, spirit helpers, and animal guides. A spirit animal chooses you – you don’t choose your spirit ally.

Actually, if you feel a certain attachment to a spirit animal, it means that this animal has already chosen you.

This animal plays an important role in an individual’s life. It’s there to protect you, impart important lessons, and give you the guidance to make it in life.

It also provides you with power, wisdom, and immense knowledge.

Shamans and spiritual ministers from across the globe have relied on the wisdom and guidance of spirit animals since time immemorial.

Closely associated with spirit animals are animal totems. An animal totem is a symbol of your animal guide.

An animal totem is indicated by such symbols as jewelry, statue, crest, emblem, talisman, or a totem pole.

A totem can be used by a family lineage, a class of like-minded individuals, or an individual.

Your totem animal has the power to influence you throughout your life. This is because you feel a very strong affinity to the animal that has chosen you.

Significance of Spirit Animals in My Life

An individual can have one or multiple spirit animals. Usually, these animal(s) will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Your spirit animal comes to teach you about yourself. It guides you on the best way to handle life. With your spirit animal around, you are able to get your priorities right and lead a well-balanced life.

The spirit animal will choose you based on where you are heading in life. It considers your stage in life, the desires of your heart, and your goals and dreams.

The animal that steps forward is best suited to give you a sense of direction.

Your animal helper can communicate with you in several ways. For example, you may encounter this spirit guide physically.

You will feel an instant attachment when you physically cross paths with your spirit animals.

Your spirit helper may also visit you in the form of dreams when you are asleep. This animal may also reveal itself to you in your meditations.

A good number of spirit animals happen to be pets. If you are very fond of your pet, this is likely your spirit helper.

You need to pay more attention to this animal to receive the vibes it’s sending your way.

Your animal guide always brings to the fore your stellar qualities. It feels you with confidence and you feel better about your qualities and attributes.

In many ways, your spirit animal represents what you see in yourself. This is more so because you are inseparably tied to this animal.

By looking at this animal as your representation, you get a better understanding of the direction your life is taking.

You may not be physically close to your spirit helper. For example, if your spirit animal is a shark or a lion, it may not be conceivable that you will interact with it regularly.

But this animal will keep sending you the vibes that bring out your special qualities.

You will come to understand and appreciate this animal through your character traits, general habits, habitat, and the kind of people you associate with.

Shamans have relied on animal totems to understand the skills and traits of their clients.

In this way, they teach their clients what they should embody, acquire, and learn to make their lives more meaningful.

Animal totems have been used in many cultures of the world. For example, warriors and hunters in ancient times would depict their prey on walls as a way of speaking a blessing to their occupation.

They believed that spirit of these animals would enable them to have a bountiful of hunting.

Some Information about a Touchy Subject – Domestic Violence

I want to touch on what maybe a very sensitive subject for some domestic violence and abuse. I have bee in this type of relationship more than once in my current lifetime and now that I have a man who treats me as an equal with love and caring I look back on those other relationships with fear that I was caught in the repeating cycle of not feeling as great about who I am. I am not going to get on a soap box and tell any of you to say in a relationship or not. I will say if you feel stuck getting told how dumb or worthless or fat or whatever negative thing your partner says to you, you may want to revaluate why you say in the relationship. Most of the time people, yes this goes for men also, in a relationship that puts them down and feeling like a second-class person is because they do not feel they are worthy of having a better partner or the biggest reason is financial. Please talk with the Gods, Goddesses, your Spirit Guides, or someone you trust to not go back to your partner with what you say to them about him or her and listen for their guidance.
