Spell for Today – Lucky Pig Spell For Good Fortune In Every Way c. 2012

 

 A Lucky Pig Spell for Good Fortune in Every Way

Pigs are symbols of good fortune and prosperity in many cultures. Piggie banks, with a slot for coins, are a symbol of accumulated wealth. Some have an opening in the bottom to retrieve the money when the pig is full; others are made of pottery and designed to be broken. A new piggy bank should be started with a coin from the old one to ensure consuming prosperity.

Items You Will Need:

A piggy bank; a gold-colored candle; a gold-colored coin that you have been given the day before the spell (for example as change in making a purchase).

When To Cast:

On a Wednesday, as it gets light.

The Spell:

  1. Light the candle and place the piggy bank where the light will shine on it.
  2. Pass the coin around the candle flame seven times deosil (clockwise) saying for each pass:  “Increased be luck and prosperity.” 
  3. Put the coin in the piggy bank and silently make a wish for whatever good fortune you need in your life.
  4. Blow out the candle.
  5. Each day re-light the candle, past another golden coin (from any source) seven times round the candle, as you do so chanting the words seven times. Put the coin in the piggy bank, repeating the wish silently or making a different one. Again blow out the candle.
  6. Continue these actions and the chant until the candle is burnt through or the pig is full. Then replace the candle or empty the piggy bank (keeping back one coin to start filling the pig again). Spend the rest of the money on a small treat you can share with your family or friends.

Some of the Magickal Applications for Wednesday c. 2019

Magickal Applications for Wednesday

To the Romans, this day was called Dies Mercurii, or “Mercury’s day” Mercury was a popular character in the Roman pantheon. A messenger of the gods, he presided over commerce, trade, and anything that required skill or dexterity. The Celts also worshiped Mercury and eventually equated him with the Norse god Odin (some spelling variations on this name include Wotan, Wodin, and Wodan). In Norse mythologies, Odin, like Mercury, is associated with poetry and music. Interestingly enough, both Odin and Mercury were regarded as psychopomps, or the leaders of souls, in their individual mythologies.

Odin, one of the main gods in Norse mythology, was constantly seeking wisdom. He traveled the world in disguise as a one-eyed man with a long gray beard, wearing an old, beat-up hat and carrying a staff or a spear (which brings to my mind images of Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings). In the Old English language, this day of Mercury evolved into Wodnes daeg, “Woden’s day,” or Wednesday.

Wednesday carries all of the planetary and magickal energies and associations of the witty and nimble god Mercury himself. Some of these mercurial traits included good communication skills, cleverness, intelligence, creativity, business sense, writing, artistic talent, trickiness, and thievery. And don’t forget all of those wise and enigmatic qualities associated with the Norse god Odin/Wodin, not to mention the goddess Athena’s contributions of music, the arts, handmade crafts, and writing. Wednesdays afford excellent opportunities for seeking wisdom, changing your circumstances, and improving your skills, be they in trade and commerce, music and art, or in communication and writing.

February 1st Divination Journal

Today’s Divination Journal takes parts from divination posts done by Lady of the Abyss spanning a few different years. The year they were first posted and any notes by Lady Beltane will be in { } next to the type of reading it is. With doing this tribute to Lady Abyss some of the regular divination topics will be missing because Lady A did not post all the topics I do daily and she posted some that I do not but might consider adding. This post is copied and pasted as it was when she posted it.

Today’s post was orginally put up on October 12, 2019

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card 

The Hermit

The Hermit denotes a need to have some space between you and the everyday hustle and bustle of our busy world. The Hermit needs to retreat. Indeed, happiness for The Hermit requires seclusion, freedom from material wants, and time for intense introspection. The answers The Hermit needs cannot be found in our physical world. The truths he seeks are internal, spiritual, and the distraction of a well developed social life can only impede his quest for his personal truths. Still, although not anything remotely resembling extroversion, The Hermit does sometimes need to share time with others; so he can both learn and teach, guide and be guided. The Hermit’s time spent amongst people depletes his energy rapidly. To avoid mental and physical overload he has to retreat from social settings quickly.

Your Personal Daily Love Tarot Card

The Fool

You deserve a partnership that deepens as you get to know each other. Wait for the person who has risen above commitment immaturity if commitment is your desire. The Fool reminds us that dating someone is not a mistake. It is falling in love and marrying them if it is not right. If your long-term relationship is encountering a difficult patch, now is the time to work together to rebuild.

Your Personal Daily Erotic Tarot Card

The Judgement

The Judgement card indicates that you’ve had some sexual hang-ups in the past, but you’re working toward getting over them. This is a period of transition, and although you’re doing the work, you may not be getting the exact results you desire. Forgive yourself for past missteps in order to take a sexual step forward today. Being afraid to express your true erotic self can even effect other areas of your life, so getting beyond your sexual inhibitions translates into a happier overall existence.

Your Daily Rune

Laguz

“Log-uhz” – Literally: “Water” or Ocean – Esoteric: Unconscious, Collective Memory

Psi: emotion, psychic powers, unconscious mental processes, love, dreaming

Energy: life energy, ocean spirit, origins of life, collective unconscious, the astral plane, love as unity, evolution

There are many occupations which you can choose. The future of person who born on 1 February will be different from that of the others.

February 1 horoscope shows that you have the attitude that no one can do it right. But a managerial position suits you perfectly. However, taking your subordinates right to voice is not fair because it affects their contributions to the issues. You are quite charming, but you should not be so thoughtless.

Aquarius, you may find that you would function better within a group or in front of an audience. You know that everybody is there in support of the same cause. However, you are disappointed when your ideas demand more of others and their efforts than they are willing to give. Perhaps, you expect too much with your progressive nature.

You daydream about it and wonder if you will ever meet that special someone. Romance is on your mind, and once a fire has been ignited, you go all in. Your passions run deep, but in your heart, you know you are likely to attract more opportunities than you should.

In conclusion, Aquarians feel that they have to be in control of themselves. You always find some excuse as to why you should not have let that person get close to you.

Although in anger, you can be rude and vengeful Aquarians, but the worse of it all is a deadly silence. Stay calm and listen to some music or explore new territory.

What your birthday says about you is, that not all this chaos is healthy. Aquarians with February 1 birthday have to be careful to take care of their legs or bones and avoid drinking alcoholic beverages and partaking in recreational drugs.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 6:45 AM to 3:30 PM EST today (3:45 AM to 12:30 PM PST). After that, the Moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

After the Moon Alert today, you will love to cocoon at home and relax among familiar surroundings. Prior to this, make no promises. Don’t volunteer for anything. Resist the urge to shop for anything other than food or gas.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

During the Moon Alert today, avoid important financial decisions or spending money. (Except for food or gas.) Afterwards, you will be keen to talk to others and pull loose ends together; or take a short trip and learn something new.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a tricky day because from 6:45 AM to 3:30 PM EST today (3:45 AM to 12:30 PM PST), there is a Moon Alert, which means this is a poor time to make important decisions or spend money on anything other than food or gas. Be aware of this.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

When the Moon Alert is over, the Moon will move into your sign, which will give you a slight advantage over all the other signs. However, it will also make you more emotional. You can use this to your advantage by asking for what you want.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

After the Moon Alert is over today, enjoy socializing with friends and groups. But during the time of the Moon Alert, postpone important decisions and expenditures. Wait until 3:30 PM EST (12:30 PM PST) to act freely!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Time spent with friends and groups will be easy going and friendly today. However, during the Moon Alert, avoid important decisions. Explore ideas about goals for the future but don’t commit to anything until 3:30 PM EST (12:30 PM PST).

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today there is a Moon Alert taking place at the top of your chart, which is why it’s important not to volunteer for anything or agree to anything when talking to bosses, parents, teachers or authority figures. Wait until 3:30 PM EST (12:30 PM PST) to act.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

During the Moon Alert today, which will take place for about 9 hours (a big chunk of the day), it’s a poor time to make important decisions, especially financial ones about inheritances or shared property. It’s also a poor time to shop for anything other than food or gas. Be aware of this. (See above.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

In some ways, it will be best to cooperate with others today, especially partners and close friends. Nevertheless, during the Moon Alert, you don’t want to agree to anything important. You might regret this later. Therefore, stay on your toes. Be diplomatic and be careful.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a dicey day at work because until 3:30 PM EST (12:30 PM PST), there is a Moon Alert, which can make things quite loosey-goosey. This is also a poor time for agreements and important decisions. Be aware of this and wait until this window of time is over to commit to anything important.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a creative day for you because your mind is freewheeling and willing to think outside of the box. In fact, write down your creative ideas for later consideration. This is also a lovely social, fun-loving day. Enjoy good times with children.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

After the Moon Alert is over today, which is 3:30 PM EST (12:30 PM PST), you will feel playful and eager to socialize! Make plans to socialize with friends. This will also be an excellent time to enjoy the arts, sport events and romantic adventures.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Julia Garner (1994) shares your birthday today. You are an optimist with a strong spirit. You have a firm sense of morals and value justice. (With a rebellious streak.) This year is a time of new beginnings, adventures and major changes in your life. Keep your eyes open for new opportunities because it’s time to take action, initiative and define your goals.

From MoonGiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Gibbous phase. Visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

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 2022 – Imbolc

(I know to be a real flashback the post should be from a previous year, but I want to make sure when I look up posts from Llewellyn’s Witches’ Datebook that I do not repeat something I have already posted.)

Imbolg Sachet of Light

Also called Candlemas, Imbolg (or Imbolc) is the sabbat of “gestation,” seeing as the earth is readying for her renewal of spring. Because of this, as well as due to the ancient Celtic associations with the goddess Brigid, Imbolg is widely considered a festival of the divine feminine.

To harness the light of life and renewal that is also awakening in ourselves, gather a number of seeds from a verity of plants. This mixture can contain anything from sunflower seeds to wildflower seeds, or even a variety of plants you intend to plant later in the spring. Place these inside a sachet bag along with a battery powered light, such as an artificial tea light. Bury it within the mixture of seeds.

With all the lights in the room turned off, turn your focus to the glowing to the glowing sachet and envision all the wonderful things you intend to manifest this year. Deeply focus: visualize smile, chant words of power, and make the sachet an illuminating personalize spell. What do you do with the sachet and seeds is totally up to your Witchy intuition!

In Memory of WOTC Founder Lady of the Abyss

I type this with tears flowing because I still think about our Lady A everyday especially when I still pick up the phone for our daily phone call. I had very few people in my life that helped and guided me as a sister and friend as much as she did when I was lost after my mother crossed in 2015. Lady A has touched the hearts and minds of so many people both face to face and through WOTC. She would find time to reply to emails from people needing help or just to say hi to her.

Her and I had a running joke that she twisted my arm hard to come out of retirement and once again help people who want to learn about witchcraft, and/or attend an online coven gathering. There have been times I wanted to throw in the towel on Coven Life, but she always had a way to talk me out of it. Now when I have those thoughts, she comes to me in my dreams and first kicks my ass for even thinking of doing that and then give me a pep talk about all the people I have helped become a safe practicing witch. I gave Coven Life to a former student in 2021 so I could put all my efforts into WOTC.

I am thankful for all the years I got to know and love our Lady. I am trying to keep WOTC the kind of website she would be proud of. I might not have everything posted every day that she had but I am trying to do my best for her and all of you dear Sisters, Brothers, and Guests. Am I succeeding?

Please leave your thoughts and memories of Lady of the Abyss in the comments section below as we honor her crossing into the Summerlands 4 years ago.

Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence – Wednesday’s Witchery c. 2019

 

Wednesday’s Witchery

Be bold and daring today! Expand your knowledge of the Craft by working with the planetary energies of Mercury on this multifaceted day of the week. Consider the Greco-Roman gods Mercury and Hermes and all of the many lessons they have for you. Embrace change and movement, and work on your communication techniques. Conjure up a little good luck for yourself with that Mercury dime spell. Call on Athena to inspire you to try magickal arts and crafts and to be more creative in your own spellwork and witchery.

Meditate on Odin and see what you can discover about him. I wonder what sort of fabulous and fascinating magickal wisdom you will uncover? Odin is a shaman, after all; he may appear in many guises and faces. I guarantee that he will make you laugh at yourself before he is through with you, but you will learn. It’s up to you what you do with that knowledge. Will you let it shapeshift into wisdom?

Wednesday is the wild and wily day of the week, so try to go with the flow; don’t fight the quirky energies of the day. Most importantly, follow your heart, and always keep a good sense of humor, because of Wednesdays you will really need it.
