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.

Astrological Correspondence: Venus

The Empress signifies the queen of life, the ideal woman, the archetypal mother. She represents the matriarchal goddess, being part of nature, fertility, sexuality, and the generative forces.

As a card of good fortune she signifies that if we are gentle and caring, as well as patient, we can bring anything to fruition; we have to be able to wait until the time is right for action so that we can reap the rewards; as a result, hard work pays off and relationships become satisfying.

Drawing the Nuin symbol can take on a variety of meanings, however it is most often associated with a life of peace and symmetry.

September 2nd Divination

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Star

 

The Star represents a strong connection to the Cosmos, an open gateway to understanding “the big picture.” It is an optimistic card that promises peace, harmony, and hope realized. For the full power of the forces behind The Star to be realized one must have faith and accept that in cosmic terms all things balance out; that disturbances are sometimes necessary to ensure overall harmony. The reward for such faith is vision on a Cosmic scale, and sense of well-being that may well radiate to those around you through your warm, untroubled heart.

Your Lucky Cards

This reading represents elements that favor you.

Death

First and foremost Death does not specifically pertain to our physical death. The Death card marks ends and beginnings. Although most illustrations of the Death card tend to be morbid, the forces behind the Death card are actually quite exciting. Yes Death does mark the end of something. But ends are often brought about by completion and not loss. Most endings are actually good, and make room for us to begin new adventures.

When The Tower is among your personal cards, the influence of Death may be increased. Having The Fool or The Empress in your personal cards may diminish the influence of Death.

The Emperor

The Emperor is gifted with the skills to successfully lead others. He can turn chaos into order, provide structure to that which is unbound. He is quick of mind and confident in his power and right to rule, and does so in a just manner. Although stern by nature, he truly is the ultimate father figure. He will provide as needed, teach those with unanswered questions, protect the vulnerable, set and maintain boundaries. His perfect world runs on schedule and is free of any disturbances. What the Emperor must be wary of is setting boundaries and rules where none are needed. If he isn’t he may well become a tyrant.

When The Hierophant or Justice are among your personal cards, the influence of The Emperor may be increased. Having The Empress in your personal cards may diminish the influence of The Emperor.

Your Ogham Reading

 

Huathe-Hawthorn

The Celts often believed the hawthorn to be a portal to the Otherworld. The hawthorn is a hardy plant commonly used for hedges and great firewood. It can even be an invasive species at times. The key points to remember with the letter Huathe are obstacles, walls, and obstructions. Its ability to form a natural wall gives the diviner an idea in what this symbol can mean to them and their lives.

Fortune – To overcome obstacles and walls you must make a personal sacrifice, to gain we must lose something of ourselves!

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 

Gort-Ivy

The ivy is a sneaky plant that will first use another tree for growth, but overtime it will potentially take away vital nutrients and water from the tree itself. Ivy can be a symbiotic helper bringing birds and wildlife or it can destroy the one it is with, drawing this letter is a sign of warning to pay attention to those in life with potential ill intentions. Ideas associated with Gort are restrictions, warnings, bindings, and potential deceit.

Fortune – Be wary of those in life who like the Ivy may be draining you of life energy. Be sure they are helpful to your soul and not harmful!

 

 

Tapping Into Tarot for Self Improvement

Forget fortune-telling, tarot has many more applications as we’ve suggested previously in Uses for Tarot Cards. In this post, we’re going to focus on using the cards for self improvement and learning how to apply them to strengthen your optimism and resilience. Two qualities we all need to live life fully.

We’re going to give you two exercises, which you can do in order, or just pick the one you like. There are no rules.

Grab Your Tarot Deck

Firstly, of course, you need a tarot deck. It’s completely up to you which one you use. Just make sure the images speak to you. The idea is to let them open up new possibilities and to help you extend your thoughts and emotions. If the artwork doesn’t appeal to you, it’s not going to help. Pen and paper will also be necessary.

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.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today your emotional experiences are more intense than usual , which is why you might attract intense people to you. It’s also easy to feel possessive about something or desire something that someone else has. Fortunately, this is a year where you will benefit from the wealth of others!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Because the Moon today is opposite your sign, loved ones and partners will be more important to you than usual. However, in the same way, conflicts with others will be more emotional. Find that happy middle ground. It does exist.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re playing things low key or behind the scenes. But today, you might have to put the wants and needs of someone else before your own. (It’s just what’s happening.) Remember this is the year that you can improve your health.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you feel more in harmony with yourself and others, which is why you want to socialize and enjoy the company of others. Flirtations, romance, vacations, sports and fun activities with children are great choices. You’re in a playful mood and ready for fun!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is the only month all year when the Sun is at the top of your chart shining a flattering spotlight on you. This is why you easily impress bosses, parents and VIPs. Today you want to cocoon at home and have a heart-to-heart conversation with someone.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Both the Sun and the Moon are in different Money Houses in your chart right now, which is why you’re concerned with financial matters. Gifts, goodies and money from others can come to you now. If shopping today, keep your receipts because you might make emotional choices.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are a generous, easy-going sign and today the Moon is in Sagittarius, which boosts your luck a little bit! This means you have an edge over all the other signs. Why not test this out by asking the universe for a favour? What have you got to lose?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

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.

The Tarot Card for May 16 is The High Priestess

The Tarot Card of the Day

The High Priestess

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: receptivity, passivity, potential, knowledge, secrets!

Astrological Correspondence: The Moon

The mysterious High Priestess closely guards her secrets and occult wisdom. This card symbolizes the unconscious, a concern with our internal worlds, spiritual forces, and the understanding of higher truths through dreams and intuition. As a wise woman the High Priestess is the goddess of fertility and is seen as a healer, possessing intuitive powers and clairvoyance, and striving to create harmony and inner balance. She emphasizes the necessity to get in contact with our inner self, to reflect and meditate, to trust our feelings, and to let dreams and intuition guide us. Observing – rather than participating or acting – the High Priestess can also represent platonic love, manipulation, a pause in a process that was progressing or even a standstill, causing doubt and confusion.

The Daily Tarot Card for May 14 is King of Wands

Tarot Card of the Day

King of Wands

35

This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

Traditionally representing the energy of a dynamic King, this card represents the classic conquering hero. He’s a charismatic leader, entrepreneurial and ambitious, always creating new adventures. He does this because he doesn’t like to stay home or to have to “mind the store” — he gets to feeling restless and bored with the predictable. If you need a crusader, or someone to take on a big challenge, he’s your man. He needs a big assignment, and would rather lead than follow.

It could be said that he has a bit of an ego, as evidenced in his enjoyment of flattery and praise. A bit of a performer, he overachieves in situations where it will be noticed, but in private he wants to be served and adored like the head lion of a pride. A benevolent dictator, he makes life wonderful for those he loves and just the opposite for those who displease him.

Tarot Card of the Day for May 13 is Knight of Swords

Tarot Card of the Day

Knight of Swords

61

 

This card is traditionally entitled The Knight, but in some modern decks appears as The Prince. Traditionally, this card portrays the restless mind, aroused by thoughts of offense and defense, storming around searching for a target to pounce on. He often feels slighted, has a chip on his shoulder and bristles with a hostile attitude. His usual method is to look for someone to blame for his irritation.

Furthermore, in an attitude of righteousness, he may assign himself the job of correcting the offender. Jumping easily to conclusions, he shoots first, asks questions later and is therefore often guilty of overkill. This is not to say that he does not have his heroic side; a single-minded combativeness can have its value. However, even when he is doing the right thing, he is likely to be doing it for the wrong reasons. Apt advice for this card is to deeply question your motives for what you are thinking about doing. Forethought will assist you in discriminating between righteous and unrighteous causes. Control any traces of impulsive judgement!

Occasionally you will notice in the detail on the card, that the person can be a woman rather than the expected man. There is some evidence that the tradition of knighthood included a certain number of “anonymous knights” who took mythic names and veiled their true identities. Living on the road with few or no servants, they served as freelance defenders of travelers, champions of the little people against the exploitation of both highway robbers and the wealthy classes. Odds are that some of these knights-errant were camouflaged women, and that idea is preserved with the traditional representation of the Sword Knight.
