Color Chart for Witches

Color Associations and Symbolism

Color energies are useful in many ways. One of the most basic ways to use color symbolism in magick is to select candles of the color appropriate to your purpose. The power of color may be added at any point in rituals and spells to enhance the symbolism, and thus the power of the spell.Examples include:


Altar Cloth & Flowers

Fabric and components for Amulets, Talismans, Dream Pillows, etc.

Food coloring choices in Bath Salts.

Label/Container choices for brews, teas, essential oils etc.

Meditations on colors for reaching specific chakras, or areas for psychic development.

Garments for ceremonies or simply on days when you wish to attract (or deflect) certain energies.

Colored papers and inks for written spell work.

Awareness of colors you select in your decor and environment.

As with most things magickal, how you feel about the color and your aims is the most important guide. If a color feels right to use for a purpose, even if it is not listed here, use it! As shown in the varying and sometimes overlapping associations above, the power and meaning of colors varies somewhat form person to person.

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is an active, even aggressive, successful day for those of you in sports because you’re raring to go! You also feel more competitive than usual. Meanwhile, your home scene might be interrupted by something unexpected, perhaps a visitor or a new purchase?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Increased activity and chaos on the home front might be bewildering today. It feels like it’s more than you can handle. Fear not because you can handle a lot! Part of the problem is your daily routine is interrupted with surprises, transportation delays, new faces and a new agenda.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Keep an eye on your money scene today because it’s unpredictable. You might find money; you might lose money. Likewise, be smart and protect what you own against loss, theft or damage. Meanwhile, guard against coming on too strong when dealing with others. Easy does it.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You want excitement today! Because of this, in a low-key way, you might do something on the sly to shake things up so that you can see what happens. (Carl Jung says there’s a trickster in all of us.) Perhaps the reason for this is you want your way about financial matters.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today Mars is in your sign at odds with Jupiter, which can tempt you to act recklessly. You’re gung-ho about something in the future and concerned with what can be rather than what is. Don’t let your enthusiasm deter others. Meanwhile, something unexpected is going on behind the scenes.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Don’t overreact when dealing with a friend or a member of a group today, especially if they catch you off guard. Your impulse will be to retaliate, especially secretly. But what does this gain you? Perhaps a momentary pleasure, but ultimately, less self-respect.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You have great diplomatic skills, which is the reason that why you don’t have to resort to heavy-duty persuasion or aggressively getting friends or members of groups on board. Instead, you can use your clever eloquence. (Some people have a way with words – some not have way.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your ambition is aroused today, which is why you are insistent about getting your way. Be aware that you are wilful and disciplined and at times, you frighten others. You certainly can unnerve them. Expect a change to travel plans or surprises with legal or medical matters.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Faulkner said, “We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” Resist the urge to insist that others agree with you today. Suffice you have the independence of thought to think what you will. Bravo.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Financial issues, especially about inheritances, shared property or something that is jointly held might prompt you to be aggressive and pushy today. You want your share! Meanwhile, a friend or partner will surprise. (A tricky day.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be patient and cooperative with close friends, partners and spouses today. Resist the urge to push your opinions on them to get their agreement, or vice versa, do not let them coerce you or force you to agree with them. We like our staples. Some prefer potatoes, some prefer rice, some prefer bread. Guard your pet today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re determined to achieve something at work today and this determination might make you bossy, especially delegating to others. Is this who you are? Is this who you want to be? Meanwhile, parents must be vigilant with their kids today. Expect social plans to suddenly change.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Prize-winning Jockey Victor Espinoza (1972) shares your birthday today. You are a free spirit. You are intelligent, focused and you like to be in control of whatever situation you are in. This is a successful year for you because your talents and efforts will be acknowledged through a promotion, an award, kudos or some kind of recognition. Bravo!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you should be rejoicing and feeling quite a good vibe. You might not have certain reasons to be optimistic and enthusiastic but this is how you will be spending most of your day.

This means that all those mundane tasks of yours will go unnoticed and there will be little things to really worry for. The only risk is that you will feel overly confident and make stupid mistakes.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today love will be the central chapter so you should be targeting your attention to this direction. There is a strong possibility to get in a conflict with your partner or in a certain misunderstanding with a person you are interested in.

So watch out for the clouds and don’t make any promises, especially if you are aware from the beginning that you can’t keep them.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today is going to be quite a lucky day for you, giving you reasons to dream about foreign places. You might receive some news from someone that is abroad or maybe send a message to someone overseas.

This kind of disposition might even get you on the verge of making some bookings of your own but maybe it might not be the wisest decision for the moment.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you might suffer from your overly creative imagination bursting with all kinds of worries and plans on the things that might get wrong.

Maybe it’s not the best time to make worst case scenarios and just wait for the things to unravel. Be prepared for the worst but try to expect the best. Don’t overdramatize on things that haven’t even happened.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today is going to be all about yourself. Not only the usual egocentric approach of yours but also the attention of your friends for you.

You should prepare any outing carefully and try to look your best as you will be the main focus. For those natives whom are celebrating their birthdays this week it will be even more important to show a good image.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you might be faced with minor blocks in your way that might make you postpone other plans. For instance, something not going that great at work leaving you with no other choice but to work over time.

The only condition to get through the day sanely is to be patient and to calculate your move thoroughly because there is nothing that cannot be repaired.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you are feeling extremely relaxed and it seems that nothing and nobody will be able to disrupt your state. This is a great attitude for you but might not be the best one to show to those around you because they will interpret it as you not caring about their problems.

So try to be diplomatic and understanding with everyone.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

For no apparent reason, today you are feeling over confident and ready to fight a million battles. Maybe it’s because of some things that have been going well in your life previously.

But this doesn’t mean that you should take everything for granted because it might not be the case. So don’t overestimate your powers and try to stay between the lines.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This day will somehow prove you the importance of being anchored in a certain place. Be it that you have troubles moving from one place to another or trying to make a certain change or that there are things you cannot comply with at work.

Try to be optimistic and really learn the lesson you are being given today through certain news or events.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It seems that today is going to challenge your nerves a bit and that you will have to manage some sort of crisis. Be it something at work or at home, be sure it will be something of importance.

So make sure you focus all your attention into all the things you are dealing with today and don’t underestimate anyone or any consequences to what you are doing.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today you will be quite reluctant to everything coming your way. Be it that you are just trying to be cautious or that you have real reasons to doubt those around you.

Acting this way might help you stay out of trouble but might also create you a weird image to those with whom you are interacting with. So make sure you chose the right image.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This Tuesday you will benefit from a large attention span that will get you to be all efficient and multitasking for the majority of the day.

Don’t let anything, especially personal news, stand in the way of your concentration because this busy day will help you clear off the rest of the day and will then have enough day dreaming moments.

They are dependable to those close but it does take time to create such a relationship with them.

They take everyone’s steps as they are and always search for new adventures. They seem to speak their mind often and interact with people they’ve just met as if they’ve known them forever.

This is a short prayer to coffee published in The Equinox ⁠— Crowley’s Review of Scientific Illuminism.

(All that you need is a cup of any kind of coffee fixed just right for you)

“O coffee! By the mighty Name of Power do I invoke thee, consecrating thee to the Service of the Magic of Light.
Let the pulsations of my heart be strong and regular and slow!
Let my brain be wakeful and active in its supreme task of self-control!
That my desired end may be effected through Thy strength, Adonai, unto Whom be the Glory for ever!
Amen without lie, and Amen, and Amen of Amen.”

Decisions, blocked paths, opportunities, the space between, spirits

The crossroads as a symbol and as an actual place are powerful. When we reach a crossroads in our lives, we have to make a decision. There may be a new path presented to us or our paths might be blocked. This could also indicate a spirit of the crossroads calling us.




It is spiritual growth, faith, and balance. It is also wealth or bankruptcy. It is an inner struggle to remain true to spiritual and moral values.

Overview: Sui indicates that you should lead by example rather than just telling everyone what to do. It indicates a time where gradual progress should be the plan and that work should be balanced with periods of rest. Effective leadership is about serving, not about power and ego. A leader has obligations to all those that work for him and this should not be overlooked. Learn the needs of those that follow you and if some of these needs need correcting then do so by gentle persuasion not by harsh words.

Goddesses and Gods – Greek Titans Theia, Goddess of Shining and

Greek Titans – Theia, goddess of shining

Theia (Thia, Thea, Euryphaessa) was a Titan goddess of shining, associated with shining light, shining metals or jewels. Her other name Euryphaessa means “wide-shining” and therefore she was connected with all that is shining. In Pindar’s Isthmian Odes, Theia is described as the goddess of shining after whom men honored gold as the most powerful shining object. She was also a goddess of sight, because ancient Greeks believed that eyes emitted beams of light which allowed them to see what they looked upon. She was one of the twelve titans and one of the six daughters of Uranus and Gaea. Theia was also, like her sisters Phoebe and Themis, associated with prophecies. She had a shrine in Thessaly.

The mother of the Sun, the Moon and the Dawn

Theia married her brother Hyperion (Titan god of light) and together they gave birth to Helios (the sun), Selene (the moon) and Eos (the dawn).


Helios – Titan god of sun dwelled in a golden palace, located at the far east of the earth. He was traveling from the east to the west during daytime with his golden chariot, drawn by four winged horses, and was wearing a radiant circle or aureole of the sun. During night-time he descended into a golden cup which carried him back to his golden palace.

Selene – Titan goddess of moon was depicted as a woman in chariot, drawn by a pair of winged steeds, and wearing a golden cloak. Her great love was a mortal man called Endymion who was granted immortality and eternal youth by Zeus and was placed in a state of eternal slumber near Mount Latmos where his bride came every night to consort with him.

Eos – Titan goddess of dawn who rose each day in the morning from the edge of Oceanus to overcome mists and shadows of the night with her golden rays. She was married to her cousin Astraeus(Titan god of dusk). However, she had fallen under a curse from Aphrodite and became, like her sister Selene, obsessed with young mortal men. Finally, she had chosen Tithonus, prince of Troy, to be her lover. She also asked Zeus for his immortality but forgot to ask for eternal youth and one day he shrivelled up by old age and babbled for eternity

Greek Titans – Iapetus, god of mortal life span

Iapetus (Japetus, the Piercer) was a Titan god of mortal life span or god of death. He presided over the timeline of all mortals. His nickname, “the piercer”, actually meant that he came for a life of mortals in terms of violence. In other words, when Iapetus decided that one’s time had passed, he brought violent death upon him. He was also known as a Pillar of west. Together with his other three brothers CoeusHyperion and Crius 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.


After decapitating and dethroning their father Uranus, Iapetus stood by his brother Cronus who became a new ruler of the Cosmos. During golden age of the Titans he married his niece Clymene, a daughter of Oceanus and Tethys. Together they had four sons who overshadowed their father in a time of war and in later times of Olympians. There are, however, few statements by different authors which indicate that the role of Iapetus was very important and equate him with the role of Cronus. Homer himself states that Cronus and Iapetus were equal in power, while Nonnus and Valerius Flaccus state that in Titanomachy, at some point, Zeus fought with Iapetus and according to Valerius, who goes even further, it is said that Zeus became a ruler of Cosmos after winning the fierce battle with Iapetus.


When the war between Titans and Olympian gods had started, his sons were also mentioned to had played their part. Atlas and Menoetius sided with the Titans, while Prometheus and Epimetheus chose Olympians. Atlas is said to have become a leader of Titans in this war and caused Olympians more than few setbacks and his other brother Menoetius was said to be very vicious, brutally slaying allies of the Olympians until Zeus himself struck him down with his thunderbolt and sent him to Tartarus because of his mad presumption and exceeding pride. Prometheus and Epimetheus, although they had also played important part in the war, are also like their father very rarely or almost never mentioned in sources that are preserved. Instead they played important role after the war, with creation of men and animals.

Released from prison

When the war was over, Iapetus was sent to Tartarus where he was re-united with his brothers and many relatives. He was described by Homer as one of the more destructive titans who was seated beside Cronus in the depths of Tartarus. However, according to Aeschylus’ lost play , he was later released by Zeus from Tartarus with the rest of the titans.
