Weekly Horoscope Sunday, September 19 to September 25, 2021

All Signs

There’s a lot happening! This week, the Sun moves into Libra where it will stay for the next four weeks. At the end of the week, Mercury goes retrograde until Oct. 18 (nevertheless the shadow phase continues until Nov. 3. Therefore, if buying big-ticket items like cars, trucks computers and cell phones, wait until after Nov. 3.) The week starts off on a happy, upbeat note. Yay! But by Wednesday, squabbles are likely. Cat owners might feel calmed by “furplay”. ((That semi-elicit feeling you get when a cat rubs against your leg.) This is not to be confused with another faintly elicit feeling – “muffinlust”! That’s the anticipation you experience when undressing a cupcake.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

In the next four weeks, you will have a strong focus on close friendships and partnerships because the Sun is opposite your sign. (This is the only time all year this occurs.) When this happens, you have the advantage of having more objectivity, which allows you to more clearly see the relationship you are in. Nevertheless, Mercury retrograde is also taking place opposite your sign. Oy! This will attract ex-partners and old friends back into your world. Sometimes this is an opportunity for fun times and a chance to catch up on old history. Sometimes it’s disastrous. That’s because ex-partners come in all flavours, shapes, sizes and colours.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

There are different messages for you this week. As the Sun changes signs this week, it means that for the next four weeks, you’ll be gung-ho to work hard, work smart, and get better organized! You will set high, personal standards for yourself and want results for your efforts. Commendable! (So far so good.) However, Mercury retrograde will rob you of some of your desired efficiency. You will encounter delays, goofy mistakes, mixed-up communications, lost paperwork, missed appointments and broken equipment (including transportation). This means that right when you want to be on top of your game, Mercury retrograde will be like Loki – the trickster – trying to sabotage your best efforts. Courage!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’re in a playful mood at the beginning of the week. Ideally, you would love to escape somewhere, especially a fun vacation. Relations with children will also be pleasant. Admittedly, midweek there will be dissension or power struggles. The good news is that the next four weeks will bring opportunities to have fun and socialize with others. Sports events will delight. Fun activities with kids will please you. This is an excellent window of time to be on a vacation. Meanwhile, old flames might be back in the picture. This can be a challenge. Sometimes it’s dreadful or sometimes you’re Jennifer and Ben? Note, this is a strong week for those in competitive sports because you will give everything you have!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The next four weeks will be a strong emphasis on home, family and your private life. Many will be more involved than usual with a parent. One of the reasons you might have this strong focus on home and family is because of family reunions. Relative you haven’t seen for a while might be camped on your doorstep and eating out of your fridge. Hopefully, someone will help you with home repairs? You’re keen to make improvements and changes at home. Be patient with partners on Wednesday to avoid power struggles. (You need that like a fish needs a bicycle.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Expect a fast-paced four weeks ahead! Your daily pace will accelerate because of a jampacked schedule full of short trips, appointments, meetings, extra time spent with siblings and relatives, increased studying and reading plus conversations with everyone. You’ll be full of ideas and eager to communicate. Please note: in this same window of time, Mercury retrograde will trip you up because it is sitting in its own “home.” Expect transportation delays, mixed-up communications, misplaced items, cancelled appointments, goofy errors and crazy misunderstandings. Very likely, you will hear from old friends and run into people from your past. Enjoy redecorating at home and buying pretty things.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

“Show me the money!” In the next four weeks, you will focus on money, cash flow and earnings. You might contemplate big expenses and major purchases. You will have moneymaking ideas, especially ideas you considered once before. Why not try again? Run it up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes? Meanwhile Mercury retrograde will cause delays and mistakes. Cheques in the mail will be late. Be aware of all financial transactions because it’s easy to make a mistake now. Perhaps information is incomplete? You might be led astray or jump to wrong conclusions? Disputes about money or possessions on Wednesday are possible. Fortunately, with Venus in your House of Communications, you are charming and diplomatic.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Once a year, for four weeks the Sun is in your sign giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. That time has arrived! You will feel invigorated, confident and energetic! Things will go your way and you will also attract important people and favourable situations to you. Furthermore, fiery Mars is in your sign! When you add the energy of this to the Sun – you end up being PowerPoint on steroids! Mercury retrograde is also in your sign, which means you will be plagued with silly delays, stupid mistakes misplaced items and car problems. You might encounter ex-partners from the past either in person or online. You might dream about them or think about them? Stay mellow on Wednesday. You will get a lot done this week.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is an excellent time to buy wardrobe goodies for yourself. (Check the daily Moon Alert to avoid regrets.) Meanwhile, for the next four weeks, the Sun, Mercury retrograde, and fiery Mars are all “hiding” in your chart. This means it’s an excellent time for you to be retrospective and do a little navel gazing. Not only will you benefit from contemplating some inner issues – you might also do research and dig up answers to old problems. It will be very easy for you to “go into the past”. You might also work alone or behind the scenes to do something to shore up your home and family scene. Whatever work you do now will have a pay off in the future. (We like!)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The next four weeks are a popular time for you! Younger people as well as physically active people will be in your world. In fact, some of you might be involved with a competition, especially to do with physical sports. Not only will you enjoy the company of others; this window of time offers you a good opportunity to share your hopes and dreams for the future with someone to get their feedback. (This is because their feedback will help you.) Likewise, it’s a good window of time to do some serious goalsetting. Try this. Goals are helpful. They make future decision-making easier and they keep you on track. They give you a sense of purpose and clarity. Meanwhile, a hidden love affair might be taking place for some of you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The Sun will be at high noon in your chart for the next four weeks, which symbolically means it will be casting you in a spotlight. This is good news because this spotlight will be flattering! This means that without doing anything special, bosses, parents and VIPs will admire you in the next four weeks. (It’s all smoke and mirrors.) Since you have this marvellous advantage – use it! Now is the time to make your pitch and advance your agenda. Squabbles midweek might take place but don’t let this hold you back. By the end of the week, your ambition will be so strong you will achieve results that please you. This is also a lovely time to enjoy the friendship of creative, artistic people. “You’re related to Pablo? I thought you looked unusual.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You will have strong feelings of escapism in the next four weeks. “I gotta blow this pop stand!” Grab every chance to travel that comes your way. You might also explore opportunities in publishing and the media as well as something to do with medicine or the law. You will also have strong opinions about politics, religion and racial issues, which could lead to arguments. You are an idealist and you always want to make the world a better place. Very likely you will be revisiting old issues. Incidentally, Mercury retrograde will help you to finish important papers, manuscripts, screenplays or a book. You might also be in touch with someone in another country whom you have not seen for a while.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Activity is taking place in one of your Money Houses, specifically the one dealing with the wealth and assets of others. Issues will be quite intense for you in the next four weeks. Past situations are suddenly back on your plate again. The good news is that the next four weeks are an excellent time to wrap up old business concerning wills, mortgages, shared property, insurance matters and anything that you own jointly with others. Squabbles and disputes about ownership might take place. Just remember – you can be happy or you could be right. What’s going to be?

A Native American Prayer To Awaken Your Spirit

By Nick Polizzi October 1, 2015 The Sacred Science > Prayers & Blessings > A Native American Prayer To Awaken Your Spirit Sometimes all we need in order to change our current reality is a little wisdom, spoken to us with gentleness and a pure heart. I came across this powerful Lakota prayer a few days ago and wanted to share it with you. I hope it helps you on your path. I know it did for me.

Lakota Prayer

Great Mystery,
teach me how to trust
my heart,
my mind,
my intuition,
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear,
and thus Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.

According to certain tribes, the Sacred Space is the space between exhalation and inhalation. To Walk in Balance is to have Heaven (spirituality) and Earth (physicality) in Harmony.

At the core of this timeless wisdom is the word “trust”. When did we stop trusting ourselves? When did we start giving that trust, that power, away?

In many ways the spirit path is a process of reestablishing that trust with the infinite that resides within us, just waiting to be activated.

Wishing you a day of balance and harmony,

Nick & The Sacred Science Team

The Witches Spell-A-Day – A Spring Abundance Spell

 

A Spring Abundance Spell

Now that trees and shrubs are beginning to show signs of growth, it’s the perfect time to perform this ritual. You’ll need a pliable stem about two to three feet long from a tree or shrub such as a willow or forsythia. Being by weaving the steam into a small wreath. As you weave, say:

The winds of winter are a thing of the past
Spring, I welcome you at last.
Growth and abundance are draw to me.
Now I’m blessed with prosperity.

As you weave the stem, visualize growth and abundance being bound to you. When you’re done, hang the wreath on a branch to the tree or shrub from whic it came. Thank the tree or shrub. You’ve created some positive karma, which will increase the flow of abundance coming to you.

Ritual for Seeing Where You and Loved Ones Will be After COVID-19 is D0ne

I got the idea for this ritual from Gregg Braden on his show “Missing Links,, Season 1 Episode 7.” He tells a story of a Native American asking him to go with him to “pray for rain”, they live in northern New Mexico where there has not been any rain in quite some time. When they reach his friend’s Medicine Wheel his friend steps inside of it for a few minutes and then comes out asking if Mr. Braden is ready to go to lunch. Mt. Braden is a little confused and asks his friend “David”, “I thought we were coming here to pray for rain.” To which “David” replies, “I was taught to see things are they would be when the rain fell. I could feel the mud squish between my toes coming out of my pleubo, to smell the cleaner air, to see things turning green and the crops in the fields growing. If we pray for something that is happening right now we get nothing but if we can see and ask for what it will be like after it rains than the rains will come.”

We are living in very uncertain times for all parts of our lives except the spiritual one. This is a time when we need to step up and use our spirituality and magickal abilities to help ourselves and others.  The intention for the ritual in this Esbat gathering is to ask for healing mind, body, and spirit for everyone including yourselves anywhere upon Mother Earth and for Mother Earth Herself. Please try to keep your mind focused not on what is happening now but how we see things at the end of this COVID-19 virus. Yes, some things are hard to picture on a grand scale so keep it simple and see how you, your loved, and friends came through this virus strong and healthy. See you and/or your loved ones, and/or friends back to work. See all of you gathered together having a party of some kind to celebrate – remember in this age of being able to connect with people anywhere in the whole you could even do a Skype conference call party (Skype allows 50 people to be connected to each other at the same time).

So, for a little while at least set your worries and stress aside and join us in this Esbat celebration of how each of our personal lives will be at the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. The song I picked May The Circle Be Open is to remind us we may not be in a circle together all the time but there are ties that still bind us together so we are never truly all alone. We are going to do a healing drumming circle than at the end we will meditate for 2 minutes. Then anyone that wants to will have a chance to share their fears or stresses or where they see themselves and family at the end of the pandemic. There will possibly be a time limit set for each person sharing time depending on how many people join us in this gathering.

What You Need:

1 large white candle (that you can burn for 1 hour every day for 1 week. If you feel you want to keep lighting the candle after the first week then that is what you should do just make sure your candle is large enough for the duration you want to keep lighting it.)

Correct size holder for your candle

Your favorite Essential Oil for dressing the candle after engraving it

A device you can listen to the song (watch the video if you want to)

Something sharp to engrave you candle (a knife, your Atheme, a toothpick or a pin of some kind)

Fireproof Container to put the burning paper in

Lighter or Matches

RITUAL:

I call to Archangel Raphael to reside in the Watchtower of the East to help protect those in this circle and when we leave it from any type of negativity.

I call to Archangel Michael to reside in the Watchtower of the South to help protect those in this circle and when we leave it from any type of negativity.

I call to Archangel Gabriel to reside in the Watchtower of the West to help protect those in this circle and when we leave it from any type of negativity.

I call to Archangel Uriel to reside in the Watchtower of the North to help protect those in this circle and when we leave it from any type of negativity.

I invoke Goddess Sirona (1 of the healing Goddess of the Celts) and God the Dagda (Celtic God of fertility, agriculture, life, and death.) to walk this circle with me three times three. To take us to a place that is not a place and an out of time as we know it. I bid you reside in our circle to help give strength and power to our work here.

Please click on this link to start the song setting your intention(s) of where you and those you care about will be feeling and doing after the COVID-19 pandemic has passed while listening to the song.

Healing Chant

Now take approximately 5 minutes to write your intention(s) down on the piece of paper – How and Where you see yourself and those you care about feeling and doing once the danger of the virus is gone.

Next, inscribe the names or initials of the people on the paper you are doing this ritual for. When you are done with that take a small drop as needed of your favorite essential oil start at the bottom of the candle in one motion smear the oil to the top of the candle. Turn the candle clockwise and again apply the essential oil, repeat these steps until you come to where you put your first line of essential oil overlap the first and last applications.

Now light your candle. Burn the paper with the candle while visualizing how everyone included on the candle lives will be at the end of the COVID-19 pandemic in whatever country or state you all live in. Repeat this spell/prayer three times while the paper is burning: (If you feel a word or some words need to be changed to fit how you would say this spell or prayer you can do that as this is your plea and thanksgiving to your deity)

Sirona we ask for the health for those we have written here is strong and unaffected by COVID_19. Sirona we thank you that none we asked you to watch over became sick

the Dagda we ask that you keep us working from home or where we are employed or go to school. the Dagda we thank you for taking us through this time with being employed and/or in school that none of us lost anything we needed for home and hearth.

I see those on my candle as still being healthy, employed, and now able to go on with our daily lives. As we mourn with those far and wide who lost someone to this pandemic.

Preparations for New Moon Gathering n Coven Life’s Chat room

If you will be attending out Coven’s New Moon ritual on Thursday, May 25, 2017, at 7:00 PM CT, there are some preparations you have to do before hand. Please have you candle prepared beforehand. If you choose to inscribe it the night of the gathering during that ritual there will be a two-minute window once the circle and Watchtowers have been called for meditation and raising as well as combining our energies. With our energies combined it will give the spell and your candle more power. The full ritual and any links you will need will be up on Coven Life’s website by Thursday, May 18, 2017. If you have any questions please email Lady Beltane directly at ladybeltane@aol.com. 

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

1 White Taper Candle (After engraving your candle freeze it. Take it out of your freezer and place in a candle holder that it can stay in somewhere in your home after gathering for at least two hours before our gathering begins to allow it to thaw at and to room temperature otherwise, it may explode possibly causing you or your home harm.)

Think hard on spiritual goal that can come to fruition or be working at the next Full Moon

Atheme or Sharp Item to engrave candle

One word engraved on candle to state your goal or intention

Working candle magic is one of the easiest ways to work a long-term spell. A long-term spell includes any that take more times of doing it than once for you to get the out you desire from the spell.

I will have a spell prepared to empower all our candles initially.

Below is the spell you will say each day you light your candle:

Hecate I call upon you as I light this candle to release the goal inscribed.

After your candle is lit rep=eat this spell three times:

Candle burning bright

Help me reach my goal with all the power you hold.

Bring the power and energy from the coven’s ritual forward with all its might.

Do not let my intention you contain fold.

So mote it be (or however you end your spells.)

The Witches Spell for Monday, May 2nd – A Spell of Renewal

BEAUTIFUL SPRING GODDESS

The Witches Spell for Monday, May 2nd

A Spell of Renewal

Do you need to remove negative thoughts, people, or actions from your life and move on? This spell is designed to do just that. It’s important that you know exactly what you’re trying to remove from your life- often times things that are actually positive can be confused for negative.

You should also prepare yourself for an onslaught of emotions. Purging is always emotional, trying, and draining. If you find halfway through that you aren’t ready to release your pain or the negative things that are clinging to you, it is safe to stop this spell halfway through and try again another day. Remember, being kind to yourself and giving yourself permission to feel pain should always come first before trying to rid yourself of the pain. Getting rid of it before you’re ready can leave you feeling emotionally stunted.

Tools:
Dragon’s Blood incense
Music that calms you
Something to write on. A candle, black or red, works well. You can also try a photo of a specific person who is causing the negativity.
A writing implement. Depending on what you’re writing on, this could be a pen, a marker, or a pin for the candle.

At noon, take your tools to the sunniest part of your yard. Light your Dragon’s Blood incense. Sit for a few moments, meditating on how you want to feel. Imagine yourself happier, brighter, smiling more than you have in years.

Bathe your candle or photo in the smoke of the incense, making sure every part of it touches the smoke. Rub the candle or photo with your thumbs with the image of yourself happy still in mind.

Now, write your spell. This should come in the form of a command- I will forgive this person, this emotion will disappear from my life, I deserve happiness. Whatever works and is in line with your desires. If you’re carving it into a candle, carve it deep, with power. Really pump yourself up for this.

Light your candle or set the photo on fire, but do it on something where you won’t lose the wax or ashes. If it’s a candle, you don’t have to wait for it to go out completely. Just let it run until you start to feel relief.

Bury the ashes of the photo or what’s left of the candle in the sunny spot, at least a foot deep. If you feel negative emotions coming back, return to this spot with your Dragon’s Blood to meditate on your happiness again.

Awaken the Magick! Spell

To help you awaken your inner magick you can cast this easy spell.

Start by gathering together the following items:

  • an empty notebook (you will call this your Magickal Diary)
  • and a blue pen

Then, on the day or evening of the moon (Monday) take a bath or shower first to help cleanse and purify your aura and after you get dressed in some clean comfortable clothes, find a quiet place in your home where you can be undisturbed for at least half an hour and place the notebook and pen onto a table or a flat surface and sit down nearby.

Close your eyes for a few moments while you take deep relaxing breaths and imagine that you feel and see a white light surrounding you and filling you with a feeling of peace and happiness.

Next, open your eyes and then open the first page of the notebook and with your pen draw the shape of a square or rectangle on the page and look into the square while you imagine that this is a doorway and it is opening up and you are stepping through the door.

The door to the magic within you is always open, if you are open to yourself and the magic of the world around you...

Let yourself relax and feel happy and uplifted as you imagine that your mind is stepping through that doorway into a sunny garden that is full of your favorite plants and flowers, (you may even see some fairies and unicorns there too) and let yourself stay in that enchanted place and have fun imagining for a while as you say these words,

“To the left and right of me, Above and below me, I awaken the spirit of nature and magick within me.”

When you feel you are ready, let your mind come back through the door and close the notebook and say

“I am a wonderful child of the Universe, and so will it be.”

When you finished your spell, you can write the words, My Magickal Diary, or whatever words you like on the front cover and keep this book as your enchanted workbook for spells and wishes.

Tired Of Winter Yet? See If This Helps Beat the Winter Blues!

I always look through all my books during this time of year because I am bored. Every year, I keep coming back to this simple ritual. I do it and it gives me reassurance Spring is just around the corner. It will not only refresh your room, your soul but also you. I hope you try it and find it as useful as I have.

Winter Blue Banishment

Winters can be long and Spring can seem far away in February. Confined indoors by the cold and inhospitable weather, we can become depressed and lethargic. We neglect ourselves and leave a dusty and cluttered household. Despite that it lifts the spirits to clean out all the physical and mental cobwebs, we will find it hard to do this basic task. To start, simply choose one room, preferably. the room where you spend the most time. Burn some lavender incense. Smudge the corners of the room and yourself. Then open the blinds or drapes and call out:

“Go, snow, go. Come, Sun, Come!”

Keep the incense burning and with your broom walk deosil while  sweeping the ceilings. Chant:

“Sun and broom
swept the room.
Fill us with Spring perfume.”
 

Continue cleaning  from top to bottom. When the room is finished, take a deep breath and fill your lungs with the clean lavender scent. Envision your inner room as clean and full of Spring’s perfume.

The Witches Magick for Feb. 11th – Overcoming your Shadows

Overcoming your Shadows

Items You Will Need:

Cedar or sage smudging stick or cleansing incense
Bell Athame or ritual knife
White candle
Cakes and wine or juice

Purpose:

This spell, which signifies letting go the hurts of the past in a way that allows you to move forward with fresh energy into the future, can be performed at the time of the New Moon. By carrying it out every New Moon you are gradually able to cleanse yourself of the detritus of the past, often as far back as childhood

The Spell:

Cast your circle using the smudge stick or -incense to sweep the space as you move -around the circle clockwise.

Think of your space as being dome-shaped -over your head and cleanse that space too.

Ring the bell.

With your arms raised and your palms facing -upwards, acknowledge the Goddess and say:

Great Goddess, Queen of the Underworld, Protector of all believers in you, It is my will on this night of the new moon

To overcome my shadows and bring about change.

I invite you to this my circle to assist and protect

me in my rite.

Hold your athame or knife in your hands in -acknowledgement of the God and say:

Great God, Lord of the Upper realms, Friend of all who work with you, It is my will on this night of the new moon To overcome my shadows to bring about change. I invite you to my circle to assist me and protect me in my rite.

Light the candle and say:

Behind me the darkness, in front of me the light As the wheel turns, I know that every end is a beginning. I see birth, death and regeneration.

Spend a little time in quiet thought. If you can -remember a time either in the last month or-previously when times have not been good-for you, concentrate on that.

While the candle begins to burn properly -remember what that time felt like.

Now concentrate on the candle flame and -allow yourself to feel the positivity of the-light. Pick up the candle and hold it high-above your head.

Feel the energy of the light shower down -around you, the negativity drain away.

Now draw the power of the light into you -and feel the energy flowing through you.

Pass the candle around you and visualize the -energy building up.

If you wish, say: “Let the light cast out darkness.”

Now ground yourself by partaking of the -food and drink. Thank the God and Goddess -for their presence.

Withdraw the circle.

This is a very personal way for you to acknowledge the God and Goddess in your everyday life. While on first acquaintance it appears to be a protection technique, it is actually one to enhance your energies and to allow you to be healthy and happy in all levels of existence.
