Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today until 10:30 PM PDT. The Moon is in Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s curious, but even though you have had lots of energy to work hard and get things done; today, you feel like you’re losing steam. Your energy might feel lower, especially regarding your work and your health in general. (That’s why something might feel like it’s too much bother.) This is temporary.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Although you have been vigourous with social activities recently, today your energy is flagging. Your enthusiasm for sports, social activities, the arts and dealing with children is a bit less and perhaps even confused? Relax. This is temporary.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Increased chaos and activity on the home front have kept you hopping! Today however, you feel unsure about something at home or within the family? You might even hide your feelings or your actions to avoid an uncomfortable confrontation.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Lately, you have been proactive and eager to communicate to others and state your case or your beliefs. Today however, you feel less sure of things. You might not know what to do. You might feel you have to hide something? Fortunately, this is a fleeting influence.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a poor day for important financial decisions because some kind of confusion, possibly deceit, might be in the air. Perhaps you don’t have the complete picture? It’s possible that someone is purposely leading you astray? Tread carefully.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today Mars is in your sign at odds with your ruler Neptune, which is a fuzzy combination. Even though you have had high energy lately, today – not so much. You might feel indecisive and not sure about what to do or when to act. That’s okay. This is temporary.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today secrets and something going on behind the scenes might concern you. You might wonder if you are being purposely left out of the information loop. Are you being toyed with? Do you have all the facts? This is the classic day for someone to be deceptive with others. Keep your eyes open.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You have been enthusiastic and positive in your relations with friends and groups lately. In fact, your leadership qualities are showing! Today however, a very different vibe is briefly present, which makes you feel unsure about directing others. Listen to your gut instincts.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are enjoying great press lately because the Sun is shining down on you from the top of your chart; plus, Mars (also at the top) arouses your ambition! Today however, you feel vaguely unsure about something. You might decide not to press your point or make a big deal about anything. This could be wise.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Travel, further education and training, plus opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law are all things that interest you lately. However, today these are the very areas where you might feel confused or hesitant. Actually, you might be deceived by something. Tread carefully.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be careful if you are making decisions about shared property, insurance issues, inheritances, taxes and debt today because you might not have the correct facts. Information could be wrong. An element of deceit is possible. Best to delay these decisions for another day.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Relations with partners and close friends might be a bit confusing today. This could lead to a misunderstanding. If this is a case, be aware that someone might not have the right facts. Admittedly, someone might not be hundred percent honest. Oops.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Selma Hayek (1966) shares your birthday today. You are an idealist with humanitarian values. You always look for ways to help others, which is why people seek your advice. You are interested in many things, and very often, you trust your intuition. This is a year of learning and teaching for you. Do what you can to learn new things through self-discovery or formal education. You might also teach.

From Moongiant.com –  You can use this link to go forward or backward in time for Moon phase information. If you are curious you can even find out what phase the Moon was in when you or anyone else, you know was on the date the person was born.

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, 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.

Life As The Witch – Recognizing Our Goddess, HEKATE (Hecate)


Hekate: A Modern Implications

These days, Hekate is often still seen as the Goddess of Witchcraft and Dark Magick, a Dark Crone, because of her connection to the line between life and death. Her chthonic roots are attributed to her aspects as a Death Goddess, but in truth she is not solely death aspected. Her nature is one of transformation, and though change can be terrifying and damaging, it can also be beatific. To think of Her only as a chthonic, Underworld Goddess is to ignore part of her nature.

These days we too often see things in terms of diametric, opposites (light/dark, masculine, feminine, God/Goddess, as if the vast universe is written in binary, nothing more than ones and zeros. While these dichotomies play a role in the nature of the universe, they are also simplified depictions. Deity cannot be contained in the use of dichotomy, because deity transcends those terms.

Hekate is neither light nor dark; she is the very scale of graduation, present at the exact point at which one type of gray becomes another, between every gradient and at either end of the spectrum. Each change is her territory, and there are billions of transformations every day.

Hekate’s connection to magic is another aspect of her nature. Through magic we take what is only potential and pull it into reality, imprinting the mundane world with what could be. And this is one of the biggest changes of all, the transformation for which Hekate has always been particularly revered. Magick is transformation, and it’s from this that Hekate’s association with it is.

In invoking Heckate we can learn to accept changes in our lives, both positive and negative, and we can also create change in our own worlds. She aids the completion and manifestation of spells and when called for divinatory purposes she can help to reveal the truth more readily. She can part the Veil, to allow clearer vision or communion with the dead. Hekate is a protector of children, especially when they walk hard paths, but also in the journey into adulthood.

Hekate guards the crossroads, both those that line our physical reality and those that mark our passage through life, through our spirituality, and through the journey that is existence.

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You have lots of mental energy today, which is why you will attack any job that you do with intensity and purpose. In particular, you will roll up your sleeves and dig in, in a hands-on way. Conversations with work colleagues will be lively!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This can be a creative day because your thoughts are spinning and full of clever, creative ideas. Meanwhile, parents might come on a bit too strong with their kids today because there is so much mental energy. Think before you speak. Don’t get your belly in a rash.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you have the energy to tackle home repairs. Family discussions will be intense and lively. Actually, there is so much intellectual energy at play, an argument could break out because everyone has their own idea about what’s best. It was ever thus.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a busy day! Errands, short trips, appointments and discussions with siblings, relatives and neighbours will keep you hopping! You will also have strong opinions about practically everything and expect others to agree with you. (This ain’t gonna happen.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

When it comes to financial issues, earnings or possibly buying something today, you have strong opinions! You are not open to hearing input from others because your mind is made up. In fact, you want others to listen to what you have to say and to your way of doing things. Oh yeah.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today fiery Mars is lined up with your ruler Mercury, which makes your mental process excited and energetic. Your mind will be fast thinking and very active! However, it will also be all too easy to identify with your ego today and only see things your way. (Oops.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you have lots of energy to do research and dig deep for answers or solutions to old problems. You’ll be like a dog with a bone and you won’t stop until you find what you’re looking for. In this way, this can be a very efficient day for you. Keep looking.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might find yourself at odds with a friend or a member of a group (especially someone younger) because you have such strong opinions today! Your mind is going a mile a minute, which means it’s difficult to take a moment to see someone else’s point of view. (Not so good.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Tread carefully when talking to parents, bosses, VIPs and the police today because people are extremely opinionated! Many people are so wound up with their ideas and opinions that they’re not open to listening to others. Instead, they want everyone to listen to them! (Hmmm.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You can use this intense mental energy today to study and learn something because you will be extremely focused. Not only that, you will be extremely curious and eager to discover new vistas and new answers. Travel plans might be ambitious.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’ll get a lot done if you have to wade through red-tape papers regarding inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt and such because you have lots of mental energy today! You will also have no trouble defending your own best interests if any disputes arise with someone else.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might attract someone to you today who is opinionated and has very definite ideas. Quite likely, they will be vocal and you’ll feel the hair blowing back over your ears. (Sheesh!) Go gently to avoid arguments.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Andy Samberg (1978) shares your birthday today. You are creative, idealistic and impulsive. You are also determined and sometimes bossy. You are a leader who is broad-minded and courageous. Nothing will hold you back once you decide to achieve something. You love to learn and expand your world through knowledge. This year you are working to build firmer structures in your life physically and in an abstract sense.

Flashback 2002 Imbolc

Imbolc is an important day of purification and initiation; on the Sun’s day, February 2, the energies are very airy. This Sabbat is a good day for coven work, with an emotionally detached masculine Moon and Sun on the Sun’s day.

Dress yourself and your altar in white, while serving white beverages or any dairy food to honor the calving season. Spread the top of a one-pound round Camembert or Bire cheese with raspberry preserves. Cut a circle of puff pastry large enough to cover the cheese, wrap it, tucking the ends of the pastry under. Use scraps to decorate the top with goddess symbols. Brush with beaten egg yolk. Bake at 425 degrees until golden, and serve hot and melting on crackers. During this ritual, bless and dedicate all candles you will need for other ritual work throughout the year. A good way to start the ceremony is to light candles in the darkened room with chanting to encourage the lengthening days.

IMPORTANT NOTE for the Southern Hemisphere Imbolc falls on August 1st.

Flashback 2002 Lammas

Lammas is the first of the harvest festivals and this year despite the fiery Sun, it has a strong, sensual feel of cardinal earth. Mars lends a masculine energy to the Sun this week to help with the organizing for this bread festival. Round cornbread as a solar disk is an apt and easy choice for the altar, but if you plan several days ahead, you can sprout a small amount (1/4 cup) of wheat or barely for kitchen witchery. Add this to your other grains to your own bread from scratch; or buy frozen bread dough, thaw, pat into a rectangle, and sprinkle the sprouted grains. Roll up your dough like a jelly roll and place in a greased bread pan into which you have sprinkled Irish oats. You can use a sharp knife to crave goddess symbols into the loaf before baking.

Tuesday–The Day of Tiu

 

Tuesday–The Day of Tiu

Tuesday is the first day of the week which is named after a god of the Angles and Saxons–Tiu, the God of War. The Angles and Saxons, like the Greeks and Romans, worshiped many gods, and though these gods were in a great number of ways similar to those of the Greeks and Romans, we also find very great differences. These differences are due to the fact that the Angles and Saxons lived in a very different kind of country, led a very different kind of life, and consequently had different ideas. Their chief enemies were frost and cold, and they imagined the freezing winds to be caused by frost-giants who lived in a land of ice and waged continual warfare with the gods who befriended man and protected him as far as they could against the frost-giants and all the suffering which they caused. The chief of these gods was Woden or Odin, the All-father, of whom we read in the following chapter, and next to him in importance came Thor, the God of Thunder, the bitterest enemy of the giants. The god after whom Tuesday is named was known as Tiu among the Angles and Saxons, and as Tyr among the Norsemen. He was the God of War, and corresponds to Mars among the Romans, whose name for this day was Dies Martis, the day of Mars. The French have kept the Roman name in the form mardi.

Tiu was a great fighter and knew no fear, and was naturally always called upon in time of battle. He was usually represented as having no right hand, owing to a misfortune which befell him in the following way. From his lofty throne Odin, the chief of the gods, one day saw in the land of the giants three terrible monsters, which grew so rapidly that he was filled with fear lest they should invade the home of the gods. Accordingly he determined to get rid of them before they became any stronger. One Hel, an enormous giantess, he flung into the Underworld, where, as the Goddess of Death, she ruled over the kingdom of the dead. Another, Iormungandr, a serpent, he cast into the sea, where it grew so huge that it encircled the whole earth. The third was Fenrir, a wolf, whom Odin brought to Asgard, the home of the gods, hoping that he might eventually tame him. Fenrir, however, grew stronger and fiercer each day, until the gods, of whom Tiu alone was brave enough to go near him, decided at last to bind him in such a way that he could do no harm. A very strong chain was obtained, and the gods suggested to Fenrir, who often boasted of his great strength, that he should allow himself to be bound with it in order to prove whether he was really as strong as he claimed to be. Fenrir agreed, and then by merely stretching himself easily brohe his bonds. Again the gods put him to the test with a still stronger chain, but as before he succeeded in breaking it. Seeing that no ordinary chain would be strong enough to bind Fenrir, the gods sent one of their servants to the home of the dwarfs, a race of little people who lived underground, and who were very clever workers in metal. They also possessed great powers of magic, as we shall see in a later story. At the bidding of the gods, the dwarfs made a silken rope out of the voice of fishes, a woman’s beard, the roots of a mountain, and the footsteps of a cat, which was so strong that no power could break it! A third time the gods challenged Fenrir to show his strength by allowing himself to be bound with this new cord, but Fenrir became suspicious, and at last consented only on condition that one of the gods should put his hand in his mouth, and hold it there as a pledge that the gods were not deceiving him. This condition greatly alarmed the gods, who began to fear that their trick was not going to succeed, but the bold war-god Tiu stepped forward and, without any hesitation, placed his right hand in the wolf’s mouth. The gods at once bound Fenrir with the magic cord made by the dwarfs, and, in spite of all his struggles, the wolf was unable to free himself. Great was the delight of the gods at their success, a delight shared by all but Tiu, who had little cause to be pleased with the result of the trick, for Fenrir, finding he was trapped, immediately bit off the hand of the god. Thus Tiu was deprived of his sword hand, but so clever was he that he wielded his sword equally well with his left hand, and still remained invincible in battle.

On one occasion Tiu and Thor, the God of Thunder, set out for the land of the giants to obtain an enormous kettle, which the gods required for a feast. They came at last to the home of a giant, Hymir, who possessed a kettle a mile deep and a mile wide, and were hospitably received by the giant’s wife. When she learned the errand on which they had come, she warned them that her husband was very fierce and hot-tempered, and advised them to hide themselves when Hymir returned, lest he should kill them with a glance. No sooner had the gods taken refuge behind some kettles, which were kept on a beam at the end of the hall, than Hymir came in. When he heard that visitors had called, he flashed his eyes round the hall so fiercely that, as his glance lighted on the gods’ hiding-place, the beam split in two, the kettles came crashing to the ground, and Tiu and Thor were discovered. Hymir, however, was persuaded by his wife to receive the gods kindly; he prepared a meal of three oxen in their honour, but was astonished and dismayed to see Thor eat two of them himself. The next day the gods gave the giant many proofs of their great strength and skill, and Hymir consented to give them the kettle they were seeking. Tiu at once tried to lift it but failed; then Thor, after a mighty struggle, raised it from the ground, and, as he gave the final pull, his feet broke through the floor of the giant’s house. As soon as the gods had departed, Thor carrying the kettle on his head, Hymir called his brothers together, and pursued after them. Thor, however, attacked them with his famous hammer, and killed them one by one. Tiu and Thor then continued their journey, and brought the huge kettle safely to their own land.

There are few stories told of Tiu, yet he held a high place among the gods, as the name Tuesday shows. He is most famous for his share in the binding of Fenrir, whereby was put off the dreaded Ragnarok, the day of the final battle between the gods and the giants.

The Witches Guide To Tuesdays

Tuesday is the day to work any magick that falls in the category of increasing strength, courage, bravery, and passion. All of these intense emotions are linked to this day’s energies, and spells designed around these themes will have extra punch when performed on this magickal day

So, let’s add a little passion and conviction into your life! Break out the daring red pieces of your wardrobe, and put a little pizzazz into your day. Work with Lilith, and see what she has to teach you about personal power and sexuality. Meditate onTiw/Tyr and Mars, and see what those ancient warrior gods will show you about new tactics, strategies, and claiming personal victories in your life. Practice conjuring up that astral weapon from the meditation and use it wisely for protection and for courage.

Create a philter for courage and protection or handcraft your own Witch’s jar to remove negativity from your home. See what other Witch crafts you can conjure up with Tuesday’s magick. Create some kitchen magick on this Tuesday by whipping up a spicy stew-add in a few Mars-associated ingredients such as carrots, peppers, and garlic. Empower the stew for success, and then treat yourself and your family to a good, hearty meal. Try working with a little aromatherapy and burn some spicy or coffee-scented candles to increase your energy level.

Check the sky at night, and see if you can find the reddish planet Mars up in the heavens. Not sure where to look? Check an astronomy magazine or search the Web for more information. Become a magickal warrior and move forward in your life with strength, courage, and compassion. Embrace the side of yourself that loves a good challenge and that is passionate and daring! Banish fear, and face your future with strength and conviction. Believe in yourself and in your dreams, work hard, and you will win every time.

MOTHER EARTH/GAIA/ALL EARTH GODDESS’ EARTH DAY April 22, 2021

ALWAYS TRY TO LEAVE THE PLACES YOU TRAVEL CLEANER THAN WHEN YOU GOT THERE!

The theme of this year’s Earth Day is “Restore or Earth” As Pagans and/or Witches it is our duty to help clean up, plant new life, etc. for the Earth Goddess (Whatever name you may caller by). We are conservationists working at ground level to restore and keep the Earth Goddess clean. This way she can continue providing us with all living things that we make our shelter from the weather from, the clothes we wear, and the food we eat.

Remember to pick up after your dog as their scat has E.coli in it which if enough of it seeps into the ground our water and food sources could be come contaminated. Making our water undrinkable and our food inedible.

Treat her with love and respect

We thank you (insert the Earth Goddess’ name you use) for nourishing all living things that help to protect and nourish our physical bodies.

May we always strive to make you a beautiful and healthy in our every day lives.

These are our words to offer our help. This is our will to make our word rings true.

So Mote It Be ( Use whatever words you end your spellcasting and/or prayers with.)

Goddess Calendar for February 2020 by Kimberly F. Moore

“The Sun’s path has returned to where it was at Samhain. Take some time to notice the quality of the light, for it is the same now as that shimmering magical glow of late October. But instead of the season of dark and silence before us, in the Northern Hemisphere, the season of light and growth lies ahead. And so we prepare ourselves with rites of renewal, cleansing, and commitment. We celebrate the first stirrings of Spring.” – Beth Owl’s Daughter, “The Days of Imbolc”

Welcome February!

While Spring Equinox marks the official start of Spring, there is another festival that marks the unofficial “stirrings” of Spring called Imbolc (celebrated February 1-2). It is the quickening of the Goddess as she prepares to cast off Winter and turn her energy to the renewal of Earth. Think of a seed deep within Gaia, the promise of new growth. This is the time when those seeds are quickening, preparing to burst, and eventually bloom into the fertility of Spring. The light grows as well, pulling us steadily out of the darkness of winter. We know Spring is coming even as we remain deep in the womb of Goddess. The church appropriated this ancient Feast and calls it Candlemas and it also coincides with our Beloved Goddess Brigid’s Day.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are entering the in-between Winter time. Could be snow, could be a crocus. Could be 5 degrees, could be 50 degrees. HolyDays and celebrations mark another turn on the Goddess Wheel of the Year and usher in the early Spring festivals like Chinese New Year, Vasant Panchami (Saraswati’s birthday), and Ganesha’s Spring celebration that all occurred at the end of January.

I apologize that I do not have the same flair as our beloved Lady Abyss had in writing something to welcome you to a new day but my writing is geared more towards short stories then poetry or prayers. I will do my be to bring you something every day that may help your spiritual journey. I also republish some of Lady Abyss’ morning posts. So here goes my first shot of living up to my own exceptions.

Our New Year has begun,

We have thought over what we did in the last year,

These things are behind us and done,

We will now try to look at what is coning without fear.

May the Lady and the Lord watch over us all,

from early spring until late fall,

And from early fall until the newness of spring.

Blessed be in this New Year one and all.

Guiding Goddess and Lunar Horoscope for November 2020

November 2020 guides us into a space of duality and the gifts of transformation. This month, it is the dark love and dedication of the Egyptian Goddess Nephthys which guides our journey.

Nephthys is the Egyptian Goddess of the Dead, Divine Psychopomp, and the Keeper of the Hidden. In Egyptian mythology, she is the daughter of Geb and Nut, and sister to Osiris, Isis, and Set.  The mirror image of the Goddess Isis in both appearance and skill, she is at times considered to be the shadow side of her sister instead of a separate entity. She is consort and sister-wife of Set, the evil God of deserts, disorder, storms and violence. In later periods of antiquity, Nephthys is said to have consorted with Osiris to become mother of Anubis, the God of the Dead.

Nephthys is the Greek translation of the ancient Egyptian Nbt Hwt, and has been translated as  Mistress of the House, the house being the temple, tomb, or divine space. According to the Pyramid Texts, Nephthys was a powerful Goddess, before whom demons trembled in fear. Her magical spells and guidance were necessary for any soul navigating the various levels of Duat,…
