The Witches Guide to Friday

 

Ruler: Freya, Venus

Colors: Emerald green or pink

Power Hours: Sunrise and the 8th, 16th, and 24th hours following.

Key Words: Love, money, health

It is easy to spot the ruler of this day by its name. In the word Friday, we see the roots of the name of the Norse goddess Freya, a goddess of love and fertility, and the most beautiful and propitious of the goddesses thus the verse “Friday’s child is loving and giving.”

In Spanish this day of the week is called Viernes and is derived from the goddess Venus. Matters of love, human interaction, the fluidity of communication, sewing and the creation of artistic garments, household improvement, shopping, and party planning all fall under the aspects of Friday and its ruling planet, Venus.

Friday’s angels are Ariel/Uriel, Rachiel, and Sachiel. Rachiel also concerns himself with human sexuality and is a presiding spirit of the planet Venus.

On Fridays, the hour of sunrise and every eight hours after that are also ruled by Venus, and that makes these times of the day doubly blessed. These four hours are the strongest four hours for conducting ritual.

Check the local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac to determine your local sunrise.

The Magickal Day of Friday

Beautiful day...The Magickal Day of Friday

Friday falls at the end of the work week for many of us, and that means we get a chance to relax for a little bit! Mark your Fridays with colors like pink and aqua, and metals such as copper. This is a day ruled by the planet Venus, so it should be no surprise that Venus and Aphrodite – goddesses of love and beauty – are associated with Fridays. This is a day named for the Norse goddess Freyja, so be sure to take a moment to honor her as well.

 

Gemstones associated with Friday include coral, emerald and rose quartz, and plants like strawberries, apple blossoms and feverfew are also related. This is a good day to do spellwork associated with family life and fertility, sexuality, harmony, friendship, growth. Take advantage of Friday’s correspondences and plant a seed, make something grow, and enjoy your blessings

 

*Note: There are a lot of disputes as to the origins of the word Friday, because there is still a great deal of discussion as to whether it was named for Freyja or Frigga, and whether they were the same deity or two separate ones. Some scholars believe that while they may have eventually become two distinctly different goddesses, they could have had their origins in a single, common Proto-Germanic deity.

Today is Friday, March 24th, We Celebrate

Crane Watch (Nebraska)
TAMRA

Themes: Air; Earth; Nature; Health; Longevity; Devotion; Wishes; Relationships

Symbols: Feathers; Birdseed

About Tamra: In Hindu tradition, this goddess was the ancestor of all birds. As such, she can teach us their special language, which often bears communications from the divine. As the consort of the turtle god, Kashyapa, she also represents a potent union between earth and air elements.
To Do Today: People in Nebraska spend six weeks watching the cranes who rest and feed here during the migratory season. This region of the United States boasts the largest group of sandhill cranes, about 50,000 birds. Magically speaking, these creatures represent health, longevity and devotion. Visualize a crane residing in your heart chakra anytime you feel your eyes straying from the one you love, or whenever you need improved well-being.

Birds offer numerous magical applications. For warmth in a relationship, scatter feathers to the winds with your wishes. The birds will use the feathers in their nests, symbolically keeping your nest intact and affectionate. Or, disperse birdseed while thinking of a question. As the birds fly away, watch their movement. Flight to the right indicates a positive response; to the left is negative. If the birds scatter, things are iffy. If they fly straight up overhead, a heartfelt wish is being taken to Tamra.

The fairest or foulest day of the week.

Your Astronomy Planner for March 24

SPRING FANTASY . . . BY SJ

Your Astronomy Planner for March 24

The Moon is in Aquarius all day (until Saturday, March 25th, at 6:06 AM).

The Moon is waning and in its Last Quarter phase until 10:24 AM, after which the Moon is in its Waning Crescent phase.

The Last Quarter Moon occurred on the 20th, and the New Moon will occur on March 27th.

Venus is retrograde (Venus is retrograde from March 4-April 15).

The Sky tonight

Venus is losing its identity. After tonight, it will no longer be the “evening star.” Instead, it will be the “morning star,” as it crosses the line between Earth and the Sun. This crossing is known as inferior conjunction, and it happens every 584 days..

 

Wishing All Dear Brothers & Sisters of the Craft, A Very Beautiful & Blessed Friday!

SPRING FANTASY

Song Of The White Witch Of The  Gospel

Shatter my misconceptions, Oh God, the Father,
Creator of all that is moving through me,
Empty me of illusions that comfort,
So, the truth I may surely see.

And, I will transcend my limitations,
Build bridges of light to fill the gaps,
Share the love I have here deep inside me,
Walk across uncharted paths.

Transform the sorrow of unfulfillment,
By illuminating the untouched choice,
Empower the forgotten shadowed memory,
Electrify my silent voice.

And, I will transcend my limitations,
Build bridges of light to fill the gaps,
Share the love I have here deep inside me,
Walk across uncharted paths.

Connect me to Earth’s bounteous Mother,
So, each other, in balance, shall we heal,
Transmute my intent into your wisest crystals,
That this work my soul reveal.

And, I will transcend my limitations,
Build bridges of light to fill the gaps,
Share the love I have here deep inside me,
Walk across uncharted paths.

Remember me when I cross over,
I have lived my life as you, too, have done,
Return me to that precious place,
No longer separated, for we all indeed are one.

For, I have transcended my limitations,
Built bridges of light to fill the gaps,
Shared the love I had here deep inside me,
Walked across uncharted paths.
