Good Thursday Morning Brothers, Sisters, and Welcomed Guests

Thank you for bearing with me taking yesterday off. I asked Sirona, Celtic healing Goddess, and Kwan Yin, oriental healing Goddess, to please help me to heal enough to get back to one of the most important things in my life. That being bring you the daily posts and other things of interest.

Today I am going to leave you to listen to a favorite song of mine I found jumping around on youtube.com while I get all the posts done for you. I hope you enjoy the song and hopefully feel the Goddess’ presences while listening to it. I wish you all a day with only positive experiences.

I Walk With The Goddess

A Terrific but Hectic Day

Today I still have a home full of descendants it is a whole lot bodies than usual but what a blessing seeing my children and grandchildren from our of state. After we go to our towns festival and they leave it will be to quite for me for a few days. I know my familiars Cleopatra and Starbabie will be thrilled to have mommy and daddy to themselves again, but it’s not like they were ignored or missed any treats the last couple of days. In fact they got applied by their nieces.

I hope your last couple of days have been filled with as much love, laughter, and family harmony as mine have been. I’m hoping I can get back to posting more again tomorrow but after all the walking I’ll be doing today I may just be in to much pain and/or tired to do anything but sleep and read. Please help me by crossing your fingers that I will be mostly pain free and get a good night’s sleep so I can being horoscopes, divination, and more about the Chinese Zodiac to your inbox tomorrow.

until tomorrow dear ones blessed be.

Some of the USA’s History and Somthings to Possibly Think About

Today in United States of America we are celebrating the 243rd year of declaring this land free and seperate from whoever is currently sitting on the United Kingdoms of Great Britain throne each year July 4th comes along. Since Queen Elizabeth II has been their ruling monarch for 67 years, which longer than many of us started living this lifetime.

But questions about what rights individual people would be allowed to have in the USA was and is hotly debated both privately and publicy. As is where did the first people come from as hunter, gathers to this chunck of land. Also what rationality were the people who discovered this land mass that was alreaddy inhabited for thousands of years

The by-laws this country used and, with many admendments to it, still uses are The Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United States of America. Which was men only most of whom owned human beings as slaves to do with whatever they pleased. Their daughters and wives were barely a step above the slaves. Unless you were a white European male you has no rights as a human at all.

We have come far since the early decades of the forming of this nation or at least that is what we would like to believe. Yes woman and a citizen from anywhere in the world can now own land, property, even a business. Plus no matter where you or your parents are from if you are a legal citizen of the US you can vote for people who want to hold the different levels of power from the town to the federal level to decide what laws we as citizens have to live by which supposedly fulfills one of the privilages given to us by the Constitution. But and this is a big but it wasn’t until the 19th admendment was passed in 1919 and then ratified in every state, Tennessee being the last state of the 36 states, in August 1920 that women were given the privilage to vote. Yet a big leap forward was in 1870 after the end of the Cival War (this war was fought over humans being kept as slaves who were widely considered less important than a horse or a cow. The Northern states were against slavery and the Southern states were for it) that all males over a certain age could vote in elections. Sound pretty good? It wasn’t and most men of colored were denied their voting privilages until President Lynden B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Law in 1965 that both men and women of color could excerise their voting privilages.

The people who are decendants from the original hunter, gathers were not allowed to be citizens in their own country until 1924. Affter they had been herded like cattle onto land the European men picked for them to live. Which was usually land that was in hard if not impossible to farm and/or raise livestock on. Their children were taken away and taught to deny their heritage that the only way not to be thought as a savage was to learn European customs and language. This happened with more than one or two generations of children born to people whos land, including their sacred lands used for burial and/or spiritual ceremonies, and their languages and costoms was stolen from them. Most Indian Reservations cover many of the largest poverty areas and limited educated people in the USA.

If you have read this far I thank you for doing so. What is taught in our schools here as this nations history leave many things out that could make politicians back through many hundreds of years look bad. As the regular everyday, working class people in other words us start rasing questions on the slanted history we were and most of our children or grandchildren are being taught, the more we can learn to honor different nationalities and their cultures rather than hold preconceived and prejudicial thoughts about people and countries that have a different way of doing things then we do. Today I  ask you as well as myself not to judge people by the color of their skin, or accent they speak with, or the spirital path they follow but instead try saying hello with a smile and maybe one day start a coversation with someone to learn who that person is as an individual not who you may think they are because of ideas that our parents, teachers, and other adults taught us when we were growing up as how to think of a person different from ourself, family, and close friends. Who knows this could take humans back to a time when we live in harmony with Mother Earth and all living things upon her and in her vast oceans and other water ways and polluting the air we breathe. The time is now for tolerance,  harmony and to start cleaning up land, air, and water for future generations.

I hope I have given you someethings to think about for positive changes. I also hope I did not anger anyone who read this post. It is up to each of us as to how we live each of our lifetimes and the karmic balance or unbalance we chose for ourselves. Blessed be, A’ho and Namaste my dear sisters, brothers, and guests.

 

Divination Posts Will Be Different

As I personally use a few different Tarot Decks and Oracle Cards for a daily 1 card draw for a general reading for all of us. I cannot post pictures of all the cards and will paraphrase the meaning of the card into my own words so I am not infringing on copyright laws. I will be doing the same for The daily I Chang, Rune, and Ogham draws. Also doing the daily draws this way it is easier to rotate the Tarot and Oracle decks I will be using. The “Crack the Cookie” and “The Wisdom of Buddha” will be in the divination posts also.

I know I have done very few divination, daily correspondence, and general witchcraft posts since taking over. I will not give you any excuses for not doing them only an explanation I have been very tired because of my health not being good. But feeling well or not I have a responsibility to the readers of WOTC to bring you certain posts you enjoy reading daily so beginning Monday feeling better or not I will start increasing the daily posts to include more of what you are use to seeing every day.

Prayers Definitely Needed In the Area Lady Abyss Lives In and Other Midwestern States Also

For more information on the flooding the area that is in effect until Monday at 7 AM CT please use this link: https://m.accuweather.com/en/us/paducah-ky/42003/weather-warnings/328977

I know Lady Abyss would want us to not only asks for her and her family’s safety but for the wildlife, pets, and other humans affected by this natural disaster.

Let me just add this, there had been undergound mining for years all this flooding can cause new sink holes to open up or open ones to grow larger. So the damage from the tornadoes and flooding is just part of the danger Lady Abyss and others are facing.

Please pray for their safety amd light candles for their protection.

Flooding has been a huge problem this year for most of the Midwestern States. A novice from Coven Life sent her last email to me was the beginning of March. Here is the last message she was able to get out to me. As she is a sherriff where she lives she is on the front line of keeping people safe. I ask you pray for her, her families, friends, animals, and all other people in these areas most of which are still under some water or trying to salavage what they can of their homes and towns.

“The flooding is affecting Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri currently. We are scrambling trying to sandbag what little bit is left to keep those who live in the hills with clean water as most of our water treatment centers are located along the rivers. It’s been an absolute mess and it looks like this will continue through the summer.

This is her email from March 16th:

Just a little update. Here in Northwest Missouri we are experiencing some MAJOR flooding. The worst flood we have ever experienced and the highest river levels ever recorded. I may or may not have access to the internet in the weeks to come. So far in my county we have 3 towns that have evacuated and more is to be expected. Our roads are shut down in and out of the county and it’s getting worse by the day. Everyday I come to work at the Sheriff’s office we are having more road closures and it is expected to be just as bad most of the summer as the Missouri River Dam in Yankton South Dakota continues to release water to keep their area from flooding to protect their game and wildlife while those of us down river are in a literal state of emergency. The National Guard and Red Cross has finally showed up as of yesterday. The whole tri state area is absolutely devastated, all of the precious farm land that keeps our area going financially has been destroyed and will not be usable for the foreseeable future until river levels subside in the coming months, after their projected planting season of course and by that time it will be too late to get anything in the ground to be able to harvest later in the year. The water came in so fast most farmers couldn’t even rescue their live stock. There are small islands in places where there are 15-20 cows, chickens, pigs, and even wild life such as deer stranded with no dry land in sight for  up to 10 miles in some places. There isn’t hardly any National News coverage about this horrible natural disaster. Ill like a few videos and attach a few pictures if you would like to see any of this. I guess i am just asking for the Coven to think about anyone here in the Midwest that is being affected by this. I don’t know if there is anyone else in the Coven from these states.
These photos are also all from around our area. You can see just how high the water is in some places, almost to the tops of grain bins that are usually between 8-12 foot tall.”

N. H. Current Moon Phase and Planetary Positions 6/28

FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 2019

The Moon today is in a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this phase the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

N. H. The Return of the Sun King (A Litha Fairy Story) Plus a Coloring Page

Once upon a time, there was great sorrow among the fairy folk. Something had happened to the Fairy Queen, Titania. She had fallen asleep and would not wake up.

The winter had come, terribly cold and full of ice and snow. In the fairy wood, no fires were burning. The seed babies were safely tucked in their beds, deep under Mother Earth’s coverlet of leaves and moss. The gnomes and dwarves were working deep underground. The water sprites waited under their ice roof, which covered the crystal lake and bubbling brook.

Most of the fairy folk, those who tend the flower children in meadows and forests, were left to wander through the winter, seeking warmth and shelter. They sought these in the homes of mortals, hoping to rest beside the fires both in castle and in hovels. Where ever fairy stories were being told at night or where ever Christmas candles were burning, there they were allowed to rest awhile.

This winter, the Fairy Queen and her troupe had been wandering and wandering. The snow blew in great swirling clouds and Old King Winter laughed and crackled. Jack Frost had a jolly time pinching their noses and toes. Worst of all and sad to say, there were not enough resting places for the fairy troupe. Most of the stone castles were dark and deserted and had been so a long time. The houses, great or small, where real fairy stories were still being told were few and far between. And the Christmas Candles burned in but a few windows.

One very dark night, after Yuletide, but long before Spring was due, the Fairy Queen began to grow very sleepy, as mortals do
when they begin to freeze. Not being a mortal, she could not die but she could not wake up either. All of the fairies tried to wake her up. They danced and fluttered around her and sang songs as loudly as they dared. At last, with the help of two white snow-hares they managed to bring the Queen back to the stone circle, which is their palace and dancing place. Without their Queen, the fairies were entirely without direction and purpose. Many also fell asleep and the ones who stayed awake were mournful and very miserable.

Lady Spring finally came back from her palace in the South. She chased old King Winter back to his ice palace in the frozen north. The ice melted and gentle rains fell. Seed babies began to awaken and the first flower children appeared. The fairies grew hopeful and hurried to bring Lady Spring to the bed of her sleeping sister. Lady Spring took Titania’s hands and breathed the promise of Spring over her. She sang her magic song of roses and butterflies, of newborn lambs and nightingales. Titania’s cheeks grew rosier and she seemed to breathe more fully than before. But alas! Her eyes would not open, nor would she speak!

Lady Spring grew sorrowful and this brought a tremendous Spring storm. She had to dry her eyes quickly so as not to bring on a flood. She took leave of Titania’s attendants, saying, “I must continue on to waken all of the seed babies. Guard your Queen well and wait for Summer.”

The fairies promised to do their best, but in truth, the seed babies and flower children were not taken care of as well as they should have been.

Day by day, the fairies could see the ascent of the Sun King on his fiery steed. He was still far away, just over the horizon. Little by little he came closer and the day began to grow longer than the night. Finally, it was Midsummer’s Eve and the Sun King reached the pinnacle of the sky. He was riding very high over the palace of the Fairy Queen. The fairies shouted and clamored, pranced and danced, trying to catch the Sun King’s attention. He was too high up to hear them, but he soon noticed that the Fairy Queen had not come to greet him on this, their meeting day.

The Sun King turned his steed toward the Earth and came as close as he could without harm. Of course, everything grew tremendously hot and the flower children took refuge under the broad leaved trees and bushes.

Still, Titania did not wake up. Here hands and feet were still icy, although her hair shone golden in the brilliant light. Then the Sun King took off his mantle of fire and climbed down from his sky horse. Without the fire mantle, he would not scorch anything or anyone. Still, he was almost too bright to look at! He came to the Fairy Queen’s couch and he bent down and kissed her. He took her hands in his and felt them grow warmer and warmer. She opened her eyes and drew a long breath. She arose with all of her sleeping companions.

What rejoicing there was! Such a shouting and singing! Each fairy nurse ran to find her poor neglected flower child.

Titania thanked the Sun King for bringing her back to life. She told him how dark and cold the winter had been. She wondered what to do the next time King Winter’s might was stronger than human love and light.

“Do not fear,” said the Sun King, “For the darkest winter has passed and Winter’s power will someday be totally overcome. Human beings will remember to light their fires again. The Christmas candles will burn brightly in many homes and around the hearths, real fairy stories will be told again. I myself will proclaim this from the skies. For the light of the world has come to birth in human hearts and this can never again be extinguished.”

Then the Sun King mounted his winged charger, put on his fire mantle and rode back to the summit of the sky. The fairy folk waved him on his journey with love and gratitude.

That Midsummer night, they held the most joyful festive there ever was in all of fairy land. And if the lights have not gone out, they are dancing still.
