Your Daily Witches Rune for June 17

The Wave

Meaning: This rune symbolizes your friends and family and their influence upon you. Its meaning is usually derived from the other stones closest to it. This rune is also associated with travel. A journey abroad is indicated especially if the Sun rune is nearby, but a journey for someone close to you if the Moon stone is closest. If it is near to the Rings it foretells a holiday or long distance relationship.

Your Daily Tarot Card for Today is Strength

Keywords: inner strength, vision, self control!Astrological Correspondence: LeoThe Strength card, depicting a gracious queen-like figure and a wild lion, shows that real strength has to be combined with graciousness and gentleness to become a force. It symbolizes inner strength, determination to overcome obstacles, self-knowledge and self-discipline, as only when we know ourselves and act in a responsible manner will we be able to deal with challenging situations and overcome difficulties successfully. Yet this card not only represents physical strength; moral and emotional strength are also included in the meaning. Patience, compassion, dealing with frustration, accepting of others, and tolerating imperfection (in oneself and in others) all leads to being a complete person. The negative qualities of Strength include misuse of power, aggressiveness, and intolerance.

Your Daily Tarot Love Card for April 30th is The Hermit

The reversed Hermit asks you to think about whether you miss appropriate partnerships because you place yourself in inappropriate relationships. Mismatched relationships represent little common ground, but they often become battlegrounds. When we are lonely, we are more likely to make poor love choices. If you are in a union, do you feel lonely and misunderstood? It is time to correct that situation. Talk about it with your partner.

Your Tarot Power Card for Today is Strength

You have always been a strong person, as would quickly be seconded by your friends and family. However, strength without control is meaningless. Your biggest enemy is not drive, but direction. If you forget what is truly important in your life, such as love and faith, then you can find yourself using brute strength to get through the day just scraping by at work and in your relationships. Be aware of how your efforts align with your values in life.

Your Daily Career Tarot Card for Today is The Star

When you get the Star card in a reading, you can look forward to a time of rest and rejuvenation in regard to your work and career. You may have the opportunity now to take a vacation or, at the very least, you can get a break from your regular routine. Take full advantage of this time, soaking up whatever healing, nourishing, and enlivening opportunities come your way.

Your Daily Ogham Reading

Beith-Birch

The Birch tree is known as a pioneering species, which means it is often first to colonize open ground following a disturbance or fire. Because of this natural fact Beith is the first letter of the Ogham alphabet. It symbolizes birth, renewal, and new beginnings. The Beith symbol appearing is a true sign that a change has occurred or will occur.

Fortune – Drawing this Ogham is a way of telling you to look for a new path, a necessary change is on the way!

Quert-Apple

In many religious traditions the apple is a mystical or forbidden fruit. Yet to the Celts it was the food of the Gods. Despite it’s often bad reputation it is clear that the apple is a source of nutrition, health, and sustenance. That is why we read this ogham letter has having to do with life, health, and healing… a Quert a day keeps the bad vibes away!

Fortune – Take a good look at your mental and physical health. This Ogham is a warning to be mindful of nutrition and healing, take care of yourself!

Straif-Blackthorn

This thorny tree is known for it’s negative uses over the years. It has been used for cattle proofing with its thorns, the berries have been turned into alcohol, and the thorns were once dipped in poison as a weapon. Drawing this letter brings forth ideas of pain, negativity, pessimism, and potential conflict. If Straif comes up in your reading it is very wise to pay attention to any warnings.

Fortune – This Ogham can denote very bad signs ahead. Pay very close attention to matters in life that way you can avoid the warning that you were given

New Types of Divination Tools to be Added for the Today’s Divination Draws

On my Kindle I have a few types of Divination decks which I plan on throwing into the mix of the different types of Divination cards and tools already in use on WOTC. Unfortunately because I cannot copy and paste the pictures of the different cards, runes, and I Chang you will only get the meaning for whatever text comes up on the card or rune or I Chang reading for the day. I will attempt to find a link to the image on whatever I post and if available I will include the link for you to see an image of what I have posted.

With divination I enjoy thinking outside the “normal” tools usually used for a peak into the past or priest or future.

If you are interested in getting a personal tarot card reading go to newfound-life.com Silver Createss /Victoria is usually very spot on with her readings.

Tarot Card of the Day

Sorry for no picture. I saved it and now I cannot find it. Hopefully I’ll figure out how to save and then find pictures on my tablet by tomorrow. Thank you for your patience as I take baby steps running WOTC.

– Lady Beltane

The Devil

Keywords: materialism (sex and money), lies, grounding, slavery, bondage!

Astrological Correspondence: Capricorn

The card of the Devil represents the darker side of humankind, all that is shameful, base, and that we avoid to confront. Its imagery connects to sexuality, irrationality, obsession, and addiction. Being enslaved by our fears and desires, we find it hard to let go of unhealthy relationships, addictive behavior, excessive attachment to material things, and obsession with power. Accepting the shadow side in us can help channel the energetic powers that this card also represents. Understand that confronting our dark side can indeed lift the chains that tie us down, and by not letting self-hatred and shame take over we are empowered to be free. Qualities of this card in a negative situation include excessive ambition, rigidity, and abuse of power in the emotional as well as the material realm.

Ogham Reading for Today

Luis-Rowan

The Rowan or mountain ash tree has long been a magical tree in much of European folklore. It protects one from malevolent beings; dark magic and can ward off any harm or bad luck that may befall an individual. The key points to remember with the letter Luis are protection, refuge, white magic, and safe journeys.

Fortune – Drawing this Ogham is a sign to flush all negativity from your life. Protect yourself mentally and physically from bad vibes!

Ailm-Pine

While pine is not a very durable wood for building, it is suitable for burning and keeping us warm. In modern times it has gained more uses, but the fragrance of the wood is what got the most attention many years ago. Because of that Ailm has become associated with purification, atonement, and regeneration. Allow the symbol and smoke of the pine to cleanse your heart and soul.

Fortune – New projects are on the horizon! They will cleanse and purify your soul and take you in a great direction!

Idho-Yew

In the Celtic religion the yew tree is a symbol of eternal life. Yew is often found in churchyards across Europe, and the oldest known wood artifact is a yew spearhead dating over 450,000 years old. Idho has a long and ancient connection with man, making it symbolic of death and renewal. The yew is a gateway for the dying before they find eternal life. Drawing this letter does not imply physical death, however it does show a great change is about to occur in life!

Fortune – This Ogham signifies death. Not in the literal sense but metaphorically it is time to let go or move on from something important. The rebirth will be grand!

Greetings on This COnfusing Monday Morning

th

Yes, I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I own WOTC so there might not be any regular daily posts until later on this week. Please read on for more information on how I plan on running WOTC, no worries no major changes why try to fix something that definitely is not broke, or what some might call me rambling…lol

As you might know, today is my first day of owning the marvelous website it took our beloved Lady Abyss years to build up. So I need your help to keep this site up to her high standards of bringing her brothers, sisters, and other readers things they want to read and/or use in their practice. I ask that you bear with me the first couple of weeks until I get my feet back on the ground because my broomstick and I are in the clouds this morning because of the honor bestowed upon me by Lady Abyss selling me her site. SHe emailed me a list about 6 inches long of the websites WOTC is allowed to use things from and link back to, so I need time to look at all of those sites. While I have been posting on WOTC on and off for about 5 or 6 years it was my own stuff I posted and not the day to day things. But with your help and patience, I will be back to posting divination things on a rotating base along with other I hope informative and interesting articles for you. As the picture for WOTC says I am the founder and owner of Coven Life, covenlife.co, which some of you know of from attending Esbat and/or Sabbat gatherings through and I with the help of my right-hand Witch, Priestess Hypatia, have courses for the novice, adept, and priest/priestess level witches. So I have two websites to post to and oversee what others post on them.

Getting Started With Pendulums for Divination Magic

Pendulum are fascinating instruments with complex magical properties. A pendulum mysteriously connects the unconscious and the conscious. It bridges the divide between the physical and spiritual planes, which makes it the perfect tool for divination magic.

As long as the pendulum string is taut and the weight is free of any negative energies that would interfere with its connection to the astral world, you will be able to use it to see beyond the realms of your everyday conscious mind. However, it takes a knowledge of the magical properties of pendulums and practice to use it as a divination tool.

How Can You Use a Pendulum as a Divination Tool?

The pendulum can see many things, but sometimes the revelations are vague. An inexperienced diviner could spend hours trying to seek answers with pendulum magic, with little success. Then they unexpectedly receive a flash of clarity, which gives them an answer. Sometimes, the insight is an eclipsed version of the answer they were seeking, which can be disappointing. Other times, the question is answered in full.

Understanding the Fundamentals of Pendulum Magic

You will receive clearer answers over time. The specificity of your answers depends on:

  • How much practice you have had with divination magic
  • Your level of confidence in your ability to divine the answers you are looking for
  • Whether your aura is free of astral larvae or other parasites that can impede your connection to the astral plane
  • How well you have cared for your pendulum
  • Whether there are any impurities in your pendulum that could limit its connection to the astral world

Before you get started with pendulum magic, it is very important to address any roadblocks between your physical body and the astral world. Begin by removing any impurities from your life that attract astral parasites.

You must also make sure that the pendulum is formed from the right materials. I have seen novice witches try to use pendulums formed from cast iron, steel, wood or other materials that will not form a connection to the astral world. If you intend to use pendulum magic, you need to make sure it is formed from purer materials.

Crystals are theoretically the best materials for making pendulums. However, there are two major limitations with them. First of all, they are rare and fairly expensive. Secondly, they tend to collect a lot of energy. This means they need to frequently and rigorously cleaned to work as a divination tool.

Silver is the best materials to use for pendulum magic. It is both a metal of the earth and of the moon. Its lunar properties make it the perfect material for connecting to the astral world. Sterling silver is a great substitute, as long as it is no less than nine parts of silver for every part of the alloy metal.

Of course, silver is pricey. If you can’t afford it, then copper is the next best option. It is also a metal of the earth, with excellent conductive properties. Its conductivity is great for harvesting the energy needed to build a connection to the astral plane.

Invoking the Pendulum

Once you have made sure your pendulum is properly functioning and your own connection to the astral world is pure, you can start using it to build those connections. It is time to harness your pendulum and use it to begin invoking the all-seeing energies of the astral world.

You can use the pendulum to answer any question that you like. However, it is easier to ask for questions with binary answers, such as those that have “yes” or “no” as the only possible answers. You can ask for answers to more open-ended questions in the future, but you will need a lot more practice. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will assume that you are asking a binary question. The procedures for seeking answers to open-ended questions is beyond the scope of this post.

When you ask a question, you must follow up with possible answers. For example:

“Will my interviewer be impressed if I wear a black tie to my job interview tomorrow, yes or no?”

The pendulum will rotate clockwise, counterclockwise or it may oscillate. If it moves clockwise, that indicates that the first answer you posed is the answer you were looking for. A counterclockwise rotation indicates the second answer is correct.

It is possible that after the first movement, the pendulum will make a different and even contradictory motion. This may mean that the information provided corresponds to two different stages or situations. If so, you should modify the questions and get answers to both.

The most important and difficult part of pendulum divination magic is posing the question in a way that the answer will be practical and easy to decipher.

TYPES OF PENDULUMS

The first pendulums consisted of a simple key suspended from a thread. While it moved circularly, the diviner asked questions. Over time, a ring or a small ball of lead was placed instead of a key.

Later, the pendulum took on more refined forms, such as a small crystal sphere suspended from a gold chain, or a pendulum in the form of a pear made of ebony or ivory.

There are many fortune tellers and healers who prefer a solid quartz pendulum, although they require constant energetic cleansing, as crystals can be easily charged with all kinds of energies that may interfere with later work.

When creating any pendulum, you must tie a knot at each end of the object to prevent it from slipping between the fingers.

SOME USES OF THE PENDULUM

The pendulum is used in many modern cultures to choose fertile soil, as well as to search for minerals, fossils, gold and lost objects.

It can be used to make decisions and learn complicated answers to questions we face in everyday life.

 

Tips to Use Pendulum Successfully

– Find a private, quiet room that doesn’t contain electronics.

– Sit in a chair, preferably in front of a table, with your back straight and the palms of your feet resting on the floor.

– Avoid crossing your legs and arms or intertwining your hands during the session.

– Place the pendulum in front of the Sixth Chakra.

– Determine the meaning of the different oscillations. Yes, No, You don’t know. For example, it could be the following:

Yes: the pendulum moves forward or circles clockwise.

No: It turns in a circle counterclockwise.

Doesn’t know: The pendulum remains static or shows a slight vibration. In this case, pause or change the way you ask. Concentrate on the question and make sure that it is clear, short and precise. Take the pendulum between your extended thumb and index finger. Rest your forearm on the table and let the pendulum swing over the body area, hand or object.

CLEANING

From time to time it is good to put it in sea salt and you must try to avoid being touched by anyone other than yourself.

Simple & Quick Divinations

Simple & Quick Divinations

Hair Divination

Throw some hair into a fire. It is said to be a sign of long life if the hair flames up vigorously. It is an omen of ill health if it simply smolders away.

Rosemary Divination

Take a sprig of rosemary and ask a yes or no question seven times. Then pluck a leaf from the sprig and say YES. Pluck another leaf and say NO. Continue alternating yes and no with each leaf you pick until the sprig is base. The last leaf you pick reveals the answer.

Water Divination

Holding a stone, sit in front of a bowl of water and ask a question, one that can be answered with either a yes or no. Drop the stone into the water and carefully count the ripples it creates. An even number of ripples means yes and an odd number means no.
