IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT WOTC

I have still not had any contact with Lady Abyss and my worry increases daily. Mostly for her safety but also because the domain name Witches of The Craft expires in December and apparently can only be renewed by her. I am going to write to WordPress and explain that I have bought the website from Lady A but have not been able to contact her in any way since June 13th and ask if I can just pay the domain name fees or if I do a slight change to the domain name of this website will all the information still be available. I will let you know what happens. If nothing else I will start with help I hope of moving most of the over 40,000 posts over to Coven Life. Believe me I do not want to see the name Lady Abyss work so hard to get known and spent around 18 or 19 years owning to be lost to us.

I ask you to please light candles, say a prayer, do a ritual, or whatever you think might help me find out what is going on with Lady Abyss. Thank you. I have tried emailing Lord of the Myst a.k.a. The Druid Gentleman and Lynette Starfire but have not hear back from them.

Pisces Daily Love Horoscope

Pisces LovePisces today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Single Pisceans could discover help or input is available from someone keen to assist with matchmaking. Rather than reject any offer of assistance, allow someone who wants to delight in seeing you happy with their efforts to surprise you. It’s also possible attached Pisceans may want to stay close to home to enjoy romantic and intimate pleasures on offer. Home is where the heart and an array of sensual experiences can be found now.

Pisces tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Something that becomes more demanding or possibly time-consuming on your part could have a knock-on effect to affairs of the heart or a special relationship. It might be something you see as manageable, but a loved one or someone sees differently. If circumstances dictate that your focus may need to shift elsewhere briefly, then there are benefits to making this clear. What you do or undertake now, you do with someone’s best interests in mind, and that’s what matters.

Pisces yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

Assessing your current love life circumstances or those surrounding a special relationship at face value probably only reveals half the story. Your intuition is your best guide to determine the reality of a particular situation. By looking beyond what’s obvious within a romantic or relationship scenario, you can avoid offering the most obvious response. By listening to your intuition and connecting with your imagination, you won’t struggle to know precisely what to say or do to restore harmony where it’s needed.

Capricorn Daily Love Horoscope

Capricorn LoveCapricorn today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

It could be easy to see the object of your affections as obstructive or going out of their way to be negative or gloomy. However, it’s also possible you’re focused intently on something that matters to you and aren’t considering the reasons behind a loved one’s attitude or behavior. You might need to make more of an effort to see a shared situation realistically. Encouraging the one you love to offer their input could be a good place to start.

Capricorn tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

There’s no time like the present to put a romantic or relationship plan into action, and if there’s something you’ve been holding back from taking the initiative with in your emotional world or a close relationship, then seize a chance now to do so. What gets put in place at this time has a strong connection with the future, and that’s where your focus appears to be. If your heart encourages you to make a move or long-term decision, then step forward confidently.

Capricorn yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

A warning bell could sound in your mind when you find yourself dealing with a romantic relationship scenario that causes your cautiousness levels to escalate. Although in some ways, the right thing to do would involve dealing with whatever transpires and resolving it instantly, you could be inclined to detach yourself briefly from whatever demands attention. You’re dealing with a brief obstacle or annoyance, and choosing not to rise to certain bait could be a wise move.

Sagittarius Daily Love Horoscope

Sagittarius LoveSagittarius today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Something connected to your emotional world or love life could become complex due to an assumption being accepted as a fact. What may have started as solid and undeniable could develop into something speculative, and an open discussion with a loved one or potential partner may be needed to bring the truth back into the equation.

Sagittarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

There are benefits to knowing when enough has been said to the object of your affections – and knowing as well when to let what has been said be absorbed and understood. Your keenness to make a point could involve you going to unnecessary and excessive lengths to do so. Your ability to be as good at listening as you are talking won’t be unappreciated by someone close now.

Sagittarius yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

Embracing the spirit of partnership or collaboration in your emotional world or within a love relationship can bring delightful benefits. Your independent streak could be strong most of the time, but you may be willing to accept the offer of a loved one’s input or support in ways that you might not normally do. Two heads or two pairs of hands could make lighter work of something you planned to tackle solo. Try to see the benefits of accepting help when it’s offered.

Scorpio Daily Love Horoscope

Scorpio LoveScorpio today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

You might be aware of how you see a proverbial glass as half full while a loved one or someone close is determined to see it as half empty. The shift in their attitude you’d like to see will need to come from them, and you may need to make clear the limits that exist regarding how willing you are to be subjected to their negative thinking. Encouraging an attitude of gratitude on both sides can banish pessimism before it becomes too deep-rooted.

Scorpio tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

A door that may have been shut in your emotional world for some time could reopen now or shortly. As an obstacle to romantic or relationship progress becomes removed, it’s possible a new level of collaboration with a loved one holds more promise or potential than you thought it did. Your relationship with a special individual might never be the same again – but the new era commencing promises that this will be for all the right reasons!

Scorpio yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

You’re helped to adopt a more light-hearted attitude towards affairs of the heart at this time. This could encourage you to be more willing to accept that whatever presents itself in your emotional world, you’ll deal or cope with it successfully. This could also be a time when you’re less concerned about taking a romantic or relationship risk – and the urge to do something spontaneous or exciting could be too difficult to ignore.

Libra Daily Love Horoscope

Libra LoveLibra today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

You don’t need to go to considerable lengths to impress a loved one or potential partner – especially in a material sense. What they’d probably like to see is you taking a matter as seriously as they do. If a financial angle exists with this, then offer suggestions about how money needn’t play an integral part in the fun you can create and enjoy together. Identifying ways to cut back on unnecessary expenses could bring a pleasing result, too.

Libra tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Thinking bigger and bolder about what you want to achieve and who you want at your side can boost levels of excitement and inspiration in your emotional world or one special connection. You’re encouraged to broaden your horizons and if you feel inspired to learn, explore or discover, then so too will a loved one or close companion. Embarking upon a learning or mind-broadening experience will be better if done together rather than solo.

Libra yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

A sense of responsibility or obligation you have given much time and attention to in other areas of your world could become less of a priority as you accept the need to focus on what or who makes your heart beat faster. However, being just as productive with matters of the heart requires you to be less methodical and more spontaneous. If you need to allow a bit of time to adjust to whatever has shifted slightly and recently in your romantic circumstances, then that could be time well spent.

Virgo Daily Love Horoscope

Virgo LoveVirgo today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Might overreacting or responding overly sensitively to a certain situation add to drama or tension unnecessarily? You could believe you’re reacting or responding appropriately but taking a step back and being honest about where you may be making assumptions can reveal reasons to feel appreciative or reassured, not defensive. Focus solely on facts, and you’ll find them.

Virgo tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

What has been vague or on a shaky footing with matters of the heart could come under scrutiny as you feel a stronger need for stability and certainty in your emotional life. This might be the result of starting to ‘think bigger’ about what you want from a love relationship and how what’s ill-defined can benefit from becoming more certain. For some Virgos, it may be time for a relationship to deepen or move to a delightfully new level.

Virgo yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

There could be something fascinating and intriguing about the glimpse you receive into your love life future at this time. It’s also important that you don’t overlook or underestimate the wisdom gained during recent months that is integral to making an accurate assessment of your current love life circumstances. As one romantic or relationship goal becomes more vivid and attainable, you’ll be able to give it more of your undivided attention to make it real.

Leo Daily Love Horoscope

Leo LoveLeo today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Your time and focus could be diverted from your love life or one special connection, and a loved one will likely make it clear if they feel you’re taking on too many responsibilities in other areas. If this involves you pursuing a certain aspiration or group effort outside the sphere of your connection, then you may need to be realistic about the demands on your time this will require.

Leo tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

You could be aware of how deep feelings and passions could replace uncertainty in your emotional world or one special connection now. If you’re a single Leo wishing you shared a deep bond, then you could have options that rely on removing yourself from usual or familiar surroundings. Whether single or attached, travel or exploring new places can boost your romantic prospects wonderfully.

Leo yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

You could feel more ambitious regarding affairs of the heart or one special connection but any grand plans that your mind conjurers will need a clearly-defined action plan to support them. Fortunately, there are aspects of your love life’s future that appear clear to you. Once you prioritize whatever vision or visions inspire you the most, then you’ll be better placed to take the practical steps needed to turn them into something real.

Cancer Daily Love Horoscope

Cancer LoveCancer today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Don’t be fearful or suspicious of change emerging in your emotional world or a close relationship. What’s shifting or altering has likely needed to do so for some time and can help free you from an aspect of the past or something that has been deeply entrenched in a comfort zone for too long. This could bring balance to a love connection that you’ve been unable to achieve on your own -and could also be a change you’re likely to welcome.

Cancer tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

If you or your paramour have struggled to find a work life/love life balance recently, then this could be an issue that might need to become tenser briefly before action can be taken to restore balance. Career responsibilities can’t be shirked but remember what all work and no play did to someone named Jack. You and a loved one can help each other to adopt more of a ‘work to live’ rather than ‘live to work’ attitude now.

Cancer yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

Trying to persuade a loved one or potential partner to accept your point of view could be trickier than you believed it would be. You could feel strongly about a particular matter and discover that the object of your affections feels similarly about their viewpoint. There are far more benefits than disbenefits to bringing this matter in the open. It may be a discussion that must continue at another time, but at least it has commenced authentically and transparently from the outset.

Gemini Daily Love Horoscope

Gemini LoveGemini today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Romantic conversations or exchanges could be prone to misinterpretation, and this might be due to skimming the surface of certain topics rather than engaging in open and honest exchanges. The more upfront you’re willing to be, the more likely it will be that a lover or potential partner will reciprocate. Removing any assumptions that might exist on both sides by agreeing to deal only with facts will ensure any discussions remain calm and manageable.

Gemini tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

If you’re a single Gemini, then you could be increasingly aware of how delightful romantic opportunities probably won’t arrive out of the blue or on their own. If you’re to enjoy a deeper level of romantic fulfillment, then you may need to be more willing to make yourself available and possibly take someone up on their offer of assistance or support. Regardless of your relationship status, progress with matters of the heart relies on coming from you now.

Gemini yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

A harsh fact may need to be faced where your emotional world or one special connection is concerned. However, you have the emotional wherewithal to not only confront what needs to be confronted but also to see a clear way forward to bring the change that your heart has urged you to consider for some time. As one chapter closes, another commences. By seeing a romantic or relationship situation in that way, you’re not harsh; you’re realistic.

Taurus Daily Love Horoscope

Taurus LoveTaurus today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Putting the spark back into a relationship could be surprisingly easily with a bit more two-way willingness to communicate. You may have grown weary with a routine a loved one believed to be necessary and could discover scope exists to inject spontaneity where it’s needed. Something you and your paramour regard as tiresome can become fun once again if you put your heads together to share ideas about what constitutes ‘fun.’

Taurus tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Certain tedious romantic or relationship routines could drain your energy and enthusiasm, but your vision of your love life future is becoming stronger and deserves as much faith and effort as you can give it. Mundane matters will always need attention, but you’re able to draw deeper levels of motivation and inspiration from what’s occurring with affairs of the heart now. Whether single or attached, this is a time to be experimental, brave, and aim high!

Taurus yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

You have a choice regarding how you react or respond to a romantic relationship challenge that presents itself. Choosing to push aside your signature stubbornness and bringing a helpful level of grounding and practicality to whatever arises is the way to go. The positive spin you put on whatever transpires could also inspire the one you love to do the same. With that mindset working on both sides, this snafu can be nipped in the bud and resolved swiftly.

Aries Daily Love Horoscope

Aries LoveAries today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

You might see a loved one’s keenness for you to handle or manage something in your relationship as one-sided. Rather than make your displeasure or concerns known negatively, you can increase your paramour’s input and assistance by encouraging a more balanced division of effort. It might be an issue surrounding their confidence that needs to be addressed and overcome first.

Aries tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Your passionate intensity can be powerfully sexy but could require you to show a bit of restraint, especially as you could be at risk of coming on too strong or releasing an avalanche of emotions someone’s direction. As much as what you might feel toward a certain person is growing in intensity, romantic or relationship progress relies on your ability to control it.

Aries yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

One intriguing idea or vision could come after another, encouraging you to take more than one bold step in the name of love. However, it’s important to accept that thoughts or fantasies will need to be replaced with action, even if it’s to test the water or viability of one or two cherished love life aspirations. You appear to have grand plans where your emotional world or one special connection is concerned, and there’s only one way to find out how realistic these are. Select the vision that inspires you the most and see what some effort brings.

Aquarius Daily Love Horoscope

Aquarius LoveAquarius today’s love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

It’s possible something connected with your emotional world or a love relationship could benefit from a reality check. You may be aware of momentum increasing in a manageable and potentially delightful way, and a wave of optimism and enthusiasm could soon replace any sense of pessimism. However, you’re encouraged to slow down briefly to ensure you have an accurate understanding of what’s shifting. What’s unfolding now could need both of you to steer it.

Aquarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Your sense of fun and adventure could be ignited, and as keen as you may be to throw caution to the wind and whisk a loved one away somewhere or embark on a physical or mental journey, a restriction could create a hurdle with plans made now. You might not be able to overcome this hampering influence immediately, but connecting with your ability to improvise can create a very pleasing alternative.

Aquarius yesterday love horoscope:

Monday 10th of June 2019

It could be the intellectual connection that you form or strengthen with a lover or love interest that enhances a feeling of trust within you. With this in place, you could feel more prepared to make yourself vulnerable by opening up to someone close and possibly in ways you haven’t done previously, regardless of how long you’ve known them. You could be aware of how much you have suppressed or refrained from saying, but starting at the very beginning is, as they say, a very good place to start.

Daily Horoscope

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 11 AM to midnight EDT today (8 AM to 9:15 PM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Libra into Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today the Moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Nevertheless, check the Moon Alert above and you will see that most of this day is also a Moon Alert. (Yikes!) Make no important decisions or big purchases!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today at work, you might have an urge to make things better or introduce reforms but very likely, it will be like herding cats. That’s because most of this day is a Moon Alert, which is a very loosey-goosey situation. Wait until tomorrow.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

During a Moon Alert, one should avoid important decisions and major expenditures; however, it’s easy to be creative and think outside of the box! Today this could favour you by enhancing the arts, socializing and playful activities with kids.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

If possible, follow your desire to cocoon at home today because this will feel right. However, avoid disputes about how to do things or improve things, especially this morning because they will simply be heated arguments that amount to nothing.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a fuzzy day. The early morning on the East Coast is not bad; but the Moon Alert begins in BC and lasts all day (8 AM to 9:15 PM PDT.) Oy! Expect delays, shortages and vague confusion. The upside of a Moon Alert is it’s a social time and it encourages creativity.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today the Moon is in your Money House but most of this day is a Moon Alert, which means you should postpone important financial decisions and restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment. You can do your homework. But do not act until the Moon Alert is over.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the Moon Alert is in your sign, which is why you may feel adrift and lacking in motivation or direction. It’s minor; however, restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment. Don’t volunteer for anything important. Don’t agree to anything important.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Just tread water today because it’s a fuzzy day. Travel, the media, publishing plus medicine and the law are your focus; nevertheless, be smart and wait until today’s Moon Alert is over before you make any important decisions.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a wonderful day to schmooze with others, especially female companions. You might also explore goals for the future with someone. Nevertheless, don’t agree to anything until the Moon Alert is over. Forewarned is forearmed.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a poor day to make a major decision because of the Moon Alert. (However, on the East Coast, things are okay until 11 AM EDT.) The irony is that if you make a poor decision it will be public and you will have egg on your face. Not good! (Ketchup helps.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today is the day to run away and join the circus. Agree to nothing important because of the Moon Alert. However, because you can think outside of the box, you are full of original ideas! Wait until tomorrow to see if you should act on them.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might be focused on taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances and the wealth of your partner or someone else. Discussions about shared responsibilities might also be on the table. Please note: This is a poor day to decide anything or to spend money.

If Your Birthday Is Today

University Professor-clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson (1962) shares your birthday today. You are intelligent, humorous and very quick to change your mood. You are interested in many topics and are very social and friendly. Service to others is your theme this year in terms of responsibilities to family as well as to yourself. Therefore, take care of yourself so that you are a strong resource. Invest in the relationships that you value. Tap into your personal creativity and hobbies.

Herbs: A – Z List (The Medicinal, Spiritual and Magical Uses of…)

Herbs

The following information is for reference only. Herb-lore is an art which must be respected, and several herbs can be as equally dangerous as beneficial if not used correctly.

  • Aloes:

General: Aloes are indigenous to East and South Africa, but have been introduced into the West Indies (where they are extensively cultivated) and into tropical countries, and will even flourish in the countries bordering on the Mediterranean. The drug Aloes consists of the liquid exuded from the transversely-cut bases of the leaves.

Medicinal Use: The drug Aloes is one of the safest and best warm and stimulating purgatives to persons of sedentary habits and phlegmatic constitutions. An ordinary small dose takes from 15 to 18 hours to produce an effect. Its action is exerted mainly on the large intestine, for which reason, also it is useful as a vermifuge. Its use, however, is said to induce Piles. From the Chemist and Druggist (July 22, 1922):

‘Aloes, strychnine and belladonna in pill form was criticized by Dr. Bernard Fautus in a paper read before the Chicago branch of the American Pharmaceutical Society. He pointed out that when given at the same time they cannot possibly act together because of the different speed and duration of the three agents. Aloin is slow in action, requiring from 10 to 12 hours. Strychnine and Atropine, on the other hand, are rapidly absorbed, and have but a brief duration of action.’

Aloes was employed by the ancients and was known to the Greeks as a production of the island of Socotra as early as the fourth century B.C. The drug was used by Dioscorides, Celsus and Pliny, as well as by the later Greek and Arabian physicians, though it is not mentioned either by Hippocrates or Theophrastus.

Spiritual Use: The word Aloes, in Latin Lignum Aloes, is used in the Bible and in many ancient writings to designate a substance totally distinct from the modern Aloes, namely the resinous wood of Aquilaria agallocha, a large tree growing in the Malayan Peninsula. Its wood constituted a drug which was, down to the beginning of the present century, generally valued for use as incense, but now is esteemed only in the East. The Mahometans, especially those in Egypt, regard the Aloe as a religious symbol, and the Mussulman who has made a pilgrimage to the shrine of the Prophet is entitled to hang the Aloe over his doorway. The Mahometans also believe that this holy symbol protects a householder from any malign influence. In Cairo, the Jews also adopt the practice of hanging up the Aloe. In the neighbourhood of Mecca, at the extremity of every grave, on a spot facing the epitaph, Burckhardt found planted a low shrubby species of Aloe whose Arabic name, saber, signifies patience. This plant is evergreen and requires very little water. Its name refers to the waiting-time between the burial and the resurrection morning.

And Finally, Herbal Folklore & Old-Fashioned Tips

 

HERBAL FOLKLORE AND OLD-FASHIONED TIPS

NATURAL REMEDIES WITH HERBS

We all know that herbs make great companions in the garden and kitchen. Herbs also have a long history as a natural remedy—and many other more unusual uses, too! Read on…

Anise
Romans paid taxes with anise, and it was used in cough drops.

Anise seed steeped in milk is said to be a sleep-producing drink, but it is also quite likely that the warm milk alone would do the trick.

Basil
Precious to lovers in Italy and considered sacred in India. Many years ago, Italian men wore a sprig of basil to indicate their intended marriage. A cup of basil tea after dinner helps digestion. Ease a headache by drinking tomato juice blended with fresh basil.

Borage
The Romans believed the herb to be an antidepressant, and ancient Celtic warriors took it for courage.

Caraway
Caraway was used to scent perfumes and soaps. The Greeks used it for upset stomachs.

Chervil
Eating a whole plant would cure hiccups; chervil was said to warm old and cold stomachs.

Chives
Bunches of chives hung in your home were used to drive away diseases and evil.

Dill
Romans made wreaths and garlands out of dill. Dill keeps witches away.

Fennel
Bunches of fennel were used to drive off witches. It was used in love potions and as an appetite suppressant.

Garlic
It was thought to give strength and courage. Aristotle noted garlic’s use as a guard against the fear of water. It’s also been widely used against evil powers.

Lovage
