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.

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.

Magickal Applications for Mondays

Monday is named after the moon. The Latin term for Monday is Dies Lunae (“moon’s day”); in the Old English language, this day was Monandaeg; in Greek, it was Hermera Selenes. All of these different names and languages translate to the same thing: the “day of the moon.”

Working with the different phases of the moon is an important skill that takes a bit of time for Witches to learn. So why not cut to the chase and experiment with the day of the week that is dedicated to the moon in all of its magickal energies and aspects?

Magickally, Monday encourages the lunar energies of inspiration, illusion, prophetic dreams, emotions, psychic abilities, travel, women’s mysteries, and fertility.

Duir/Dair

D is for Duir, the Celtic tree of Oak. Like the mighty tree it represents, Duir is associated with strength, resilience and self-confidence. The Oak is strong and powerful, often dominating over its shorter neighbors. The Oak King rules over the summer months, and this tree was sacred to the Druids. Some scholars say the word Duir translates to “door,” the root word of “Druid”. The Oak is connected with spells for protection and strength, fertility, money and success, and good fortune.

In many pre-Christian societies, the Oak was often associated with the leaders of the gods–Zeus, Thor, Jupiter, and so forth. The strength and masculinity of the Oak was honored through the worship of these gods.

During the Tudor and Elizabethan eras, Oak was valued for its strength and durability, and was commonly used in construction of homes. The bark became valuable in the tanning industry, and many areas of Scotland were deforested in the rush to harvest Oak.

January 13, 2023 Birthday Horoscope

May the next year of your life be more positive than the past year! 

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope from sunsigns.org

JANUARY 13 birthday horoscope predicts that you are fierce! If you are wondering what zodiac sign is January 13, then here is the answer – you are a Capricorn! Your careless energy has you excited to meet all of life’s vicissitudes. Whatever the case may be, you like to look good. You like the good things in life.

Your birthday analysis is so true when it says that whether times are difficult or not, it will not reflect on your grooming standards. As a child, you did not have much but were taught to take care of what you have. When you settle down, you will make a great parent. You can combine your parents’ values and your own to teach life lessons effectively.

Capricorn with January 13 birthday is different from the others. You can come across as being unstable or cannot understand certain things. One would say that they laugh at the oddest of situations. Otherwise, they feel they have the ability to communicate with others on a level that warrants solid relationships.

It is important to you that you are not alone in life. The chances are that you will marry young. Based on your actions and outlook, you will have no problems finding a suitable mate forecasts your birthday love compatibility.

Capricorn birthday people always feel that they have to be in control of the clipboard. Working at a job that fails to hold your interest will be a job that is short-lived. You are concerned with financial security, however, having struggled before, you can live below your means comfortably. The future of person who born on 13 January depends on how down-to-earth you can be in dire circumstances.

According to the January 13 birthday horoscope, making money is more or less a hobby for you. If you could stay focused, you could do a lot better. Try a program that revs you up and stick to it. I know it is hard for you to commit to levels that make you vulnerable but try. Some things need a constant revival to prosper.

As your birthday astrology predicts, you fear the unknown on the one hand. It is what allows your ships to keep passing one another in the night. In other words, you keep missing opportunities because you are scared. This year, you need to seize opportunities rather than let them slide by. You have strong decision-making skills. The intuitive nature of the Capricorn sun sign will guide you to make the right decision. Trust it.

Capricorn’s energy to resolve conflicts will be favored this year. Professional opportunities are excellent if today, January 13th is your birthday. If you can apply yourself during this window of change, you can accomplish whatever you set out to do. The connections you previously made have proven to be useful in rousing exposure. New contacts inspired newly found wisdom, a new network of associates and a much deserved cerebral recreation.

You may meet someone who in business helps you along the way. This mentorship could inspire you to further your education. If this is the case, you need to set the necessary action into place.

Now is the time to collect what is left of last year and throw it away. You will be setting new goals. Others will support you, and as a result, you will have more confidence than before. You need to take the first step.The January 13 horoscope predicts that the most significant challenge for people born today is coping with anger issues or disappointments. To move forward with this, you need to understand what is the underlying cause.

The only way to do this is to talk about it. You have to commit to doing this, or it will not work out favorably. In business, you need to pick yourself up and carry on. You make life seem to easy otherwise. Never let them see you sweat.

In conclusion, Capricorn, further your education if you think it will help you financially. Now is the time to throw out any old baggage that has been weighing you down. Because you fear to be alone, you will more than likely marry younger than expected. The January 13 birthday personality will be good at resolving conflicts.

TAROT CARD

The Oak King – Major Arcana

Pages 65 and 66

The Oak King hangs upside down by his heel, which is wedged between branches of an oak tree. He is comfortable, casual, and relaxed as he contemplates his vital role within the infinite passage of time, tracing on the ground below him the perpetual cosmic lemniscate within the circle of the year. His position reflects the infinity symbol as he anticipates the familiar cycle of change, when the Oak King transitions into the unborn infant within the womb of Mother Earth, surrendering his reign to himself as the Holly King, the Sage who will rule until the Oak King is reborn at Yule. The lemniscate shows that the God’s endless cycle of life and authority is a harmonious interaction of light and shadow, demonstrating that life itself moves through the seasons of its own, an he is the guide.

This card offers the opportunity to meditate or focus inward and determine what needs to be released to make room for what needs to be brought in, and what needs to be retained. This can be an external or internal housecleaning, deciding what is unnecessary in one’s life, what is worthy of being kept, and what is new and beneficial. Here is a time when the conscious and subconscious may communicate, discovering what is desired and what is no longer necessary in one’s life.

The matter of change is in the tenuous phase of transition, requiring thought and the willingness to let go of the outmoded in order to reach achievement in some area of life. This is the stage of determining what foundation will be laid for the future and what new venture or outlook should begin. When this card appears in a reading, one is advised to take the time to consider the various options, pull together resources, and bring everything into balance before proceeding. Just as spell materials are set on a pentacle during magic work for grounding and manifestation in the physical world, so too should one prepare for what materialize.

Meaning: Paused activity, transition, meditation, weighing options, inner peace, patience, deciding what changes to make, self-sacrifices for gains.

Prompt Words: Introspection, inner peace.

Iodhadh/Idad

I is Iodhadh, or Idad, the Yew tree. Much like the Death card in the Tarot, the Yew is known as a marker of death and endings. This evergreen tree has leaves that are attached in a spiral pattern to the twigs. Because of its unusual growth pattern, in which new growth forms inside the old, the Yew is strongly tied to rebirth and new life following death.

The Yew has no medicinal value at all, and in fact, it’s mostly toxic. Livestock have been known to die from eating the poisonous leaves. Berries can be used, but should be treated with caution. On a practical level, the wood of the Yew tree is very hard and resistant to water damage, so it was popular in the making of longbows in England.

In A Modern Herbal, Maud Grieve says of the Yew,

“No tree is more associated with the history and legends of Great Britain than the Yew. Before Christianity was introduced it was a sacred tree favoured by the Druids, who built their temples near these trees–a custom followed by the early Christians. The association of the tree with places of worship still prevails.”

Iodhadh Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Although it may not represent spiritual death, if Iodhadh appears, it’s a sign that major transitions are coming. Be aware of them, and realize that although not all of them are bad, they will probably be pretty significant. Now’s a good time to get rid of things which are of no use to you, in order to make room for new beginnings.

Magical Aspects: Changes are on the way, so quit clinging to beliefs and ideas that no longer serve you well. Shed the old, and welcome the new. Accept change for what it is–an asset–and stop seeing it as an obstacle. Don’t fear new things, embrace them.

Hexagram Fourteen/14

Ta Yu / Great Treasures

The Fire of clarity illuminates the Heavens to those below:
The Superior Person possesses great inner treasures — compassion, economy, and modesty.
These treasures allow the benevolent will of Heaven to flow through him outward to curb evil and to further good.

Supreme success.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

You have become an instrument of Heaven’s will, offering a balance in the world around you.
It is not swashbuckling prowess or uncanny talent that qualifies you for this office, but your simplest gifts — your modesty, your compassion, your economy.
Because you can see clearly who most needs a miracle, Heaven’s bounty is being put at your disposal.

Animal Spirit Guide or Helper

Chimpanzee – “Use both your intuition and your intellect to solve the problem or get answers to your questions”

Pages 36 to38

When your intuition and intellect are in harmonious accord with each other, there’s no problem that you can’t resolve. The combination emerges as creative intelligence, an elegant blend of your capacity for reasoning coupled with a deep trust in your gut feelings. In the flow of thought and action that results in resolving your question or problem this way, you may surprise yourself as to how simple and effective the answer really is.

Your intuition is actually a constellation of physical cues that response the subtle body language, voice intonations, and energetic quality of the people or situations around you, often felt in your gut but not confined to that area. It’s your instinct communicating—an aspect of your animal nature that’s cued in to your survival and growth. You can best access this instinctual wisdom by breathing slowly and steadily and focusing your attention on the physical sensations you notice.

In addition to your intuitive feelings, get more information on which to base your choices by doing some research. Consult books, the Internet, other types of oracles, and/or discuss the issue with a friend. Or you may simply need time to contemplate it. Often when you walk away from the problem or question after intensely researching it, an unexpected insight surfaces that helps you discern the best choice among the possibilities. When there’s congruity between mind and intuition, coupled with a healthy dose of patience, you tap into the deeper wisdom of Source.

Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence for Wednesday

From learnreligions.com

Wednesday is named for Woden himself, although the Romans called it dies Mercurii. This is a day associated with the color purple, the planet Mercury, and the metal quicksilver—which is also called mercury. See a pattern here?

When it comes to deities… yes, Mercury! However, there are a few other gods associated with Wednesday, including Odin and Hermes, Athena, and Lugh. Gemstones like adventurine and agate come in handy as well, as do plants such as aspen trees, lilies, lavender, and even ferns.

Business and job-related issues, communication, loss and debt, traveling, and journeys are all tied into Wednesday. This is a good day to do a working to open up lines of communication—especially if your actions are preventing you from being an effective speaker or listener. Go someplace new or return to an old favorite stomping ground, step up your game, and settle up your accounts.

Spell for Today – A Give me the Money! Spell

A Give me the Money! Spell

Fiona Horne

Witch, A Magickal Journey

Money is something everyone wants; and this is a spell not only for enough money, but also for lots of money! It requires strong powers of visualization and a firm belief that you deserve prosperity.

 

Do this spell on a Thursday at midday when the sun’s energy is peaking, and during a waxing moon phase.

 

You will need:

 

* Liquid Paper

*3 green candles;

*A colour photocopy of a blank recent personal bank statement (first photocopy, then *liquid paper out the balance amounts, then photocopy again so that you have a blank

statement);

*1 green ribbon;

*9 drops of bergamot oil;

*1 teaspoon of dried dill

*1 teaspoon of dried sage;

*A typewriter or word processor and printer.

 

Before you start your spell ritual, have a good think about money and your relationship with it – do you feel it is hard to get? Do you feel that the more you earn, the more you spend? Do you have enough to live comfortably, but you want to live more comfortably? Are all your friends not very well off, so you feel you can’t be either? Erase any thought processes that are limiting your prosperity.

 

Now, decide exactly what sort of money you want to have. When I did this spell I summed up my situation by realizing that I only ever dealt in $100s – I would earn $100 for a show with my old band; $200 for an article I wrote; $600 for an old guitar that I sold; my bank balance only ever had an amount in the hundreds (or less!) in it. I decided that I wanted to deal in $1000s. It’s worth pointing out that there’s no point in being greedy when doing this sort of spell, not just because it’s tacky but also because greed only exists in a mind that is constantly in a battle against poverty. And that attitude is going to undermine the belief that the spell will work; that is, it’s going to enormously lessen the chances of it working. Often money spells work best when they’re either for a special purpose (for example, a trip you feel you really need to take, or a car if you’re in genuine need of one) or as a continuing thing just to keep the income coming in. A clear attitude that acknowledges that resources can always be called in when needed, rather than a panicky, one-off “major Lotto win”kind of approach, is going to be more effective.

 

Bearing all this in mind, decide what your money goals are type up a new bank statement, like this,

 

Transaction CashCheque Current Balance

 

Deposit $2,000.00

Deposit $1,300.00 Withdrawal

Deposit $5,700.00

 

 

 

$2,000.00

 

 

$2,000.00

$4,000.00

$5,300.00

$3,300.00

$9,000.00

 

or however your statement is presented. Make it look real; use your typewriter or computer and printer, so that it convinces you that this is possible.

 

When you have completed this, get ready for your ritual by showering (wash away the past) and dressing in your favorite clothes and perfume or aftershave. You want to feel fantastic and capable of taking on the world!

 

Cast Circle and anoint each of the green candles with three drops of bergamot oil, then set them up in a triangle on your altar. Place your new bank balance statement in front of these and sprinkle the dill and sage in a deosil (sunwise) circle on it as you repeat until all the herbs are on the paper: ‘Prosperous is my rightful state, there is no limit to the money I make.’

 

Now, raise power in whatever way you choose, for example: chanting “money, come to me, money, come to me” over and over; sense your desire start as a burning sensation in your feet, and building through you until you feel you are going to explode. At the point where you can’t take it any more hold your hands over the triangle of candles, channeling the energy into their flames and the bank statement.

 

Say: ‘Fire, speed my wish to me.’

 

Now drip three drops of wax from each candle in the centre of the circle of herbs on the bank statement.

 

Fold the statement into a wallet shape, sealing the herbs within, and wrap the ribbon around it three times, tying it off with nine knots.

Keep the money charm where you file your bank statements and for the next two Wednesdays before you go to bed light the candles again, hold the charm and repeat the mantra, ‘Money come to me’ for three minutes or so.

 

As you do this visualize yourself going to the bank to deposit your desired sums of money. At the end of those two weeks leave the charm with your bank statements and go about your business.

 

When I did this spell I noticed a distinct turn-around in my financial situation within three months. All of a sudden I started getting offered more money for the same jobs. I found myself not being so tight, and realizing that the more I spent, secure in the knowledge that I was prosperous; the more money came my way.

Lovers – Major Arcana

An emotional decision.

A Forest dragon stands on the bank of a lake, its neck outstretched to touch noses with a beautiful Water dragon that rises from the waters. The gaze at each other in love, unconcerned that their attraction  will prove difficult because of their very different lifestyles. For the moment, they are caught up in the power of their emotions. The Forest dragon represents the liner, analytical left brain and the conscious mind, while the Water dragon represents creativity, spiritually connected right mind and the conscious mind. To achieve success and reach goals, both halves of the brain, as well as the conscious and subconscious minds, must live and work together in harmony in order to reach a spiritual balance point. However, because of the vast differences in perceiving life and spirit, this is extremely difficult to maintain on a constant basis.  Thus, we go through life in a kind of dance, approaching, then retreating from the balance point. The heron, representing generation of life, and the butterfly, symbolizing the soul itself, reveal that we must always be aware of the soul and its need to grow, regardless of our emotional side-paths.

Divinatory Meaning

A romantic encounter may come into your life. You may be faced with an attraction or a temptation that may not be good for you.

Hexagram Forty-Five/45

Coming Together

General Meaning:
The power of gathering together is represented by a rally, where each individual’s strength is magnified by the power of their community. History has shown that mass movements can bring about stable, ordered and durable conditions for the better. This hexagram may be pointing to an auspicious time for large undertakings. But the guiding force of your shared vision is essential to hold the forces of unity together, and keep them advancing toward a common goals and values.

Another image for this situation is that of a lake filling with water. Just as the fullness of the lake can bring good fortune to all in its sphere, it can also overflow, leading to calamity. Thus in a time of gathering together it is essential that precautions against excesses be considered along with efforts to advance along a clearly-charted course. Much of human misfortune comes from unexpected events for which we are ill prepared; when gathered together with others, we are both more powerful and, in some ways, also more vulnerable.

Any time of unified coming together is a time of great potential. But the potential can be both positive and negative. Everything is magnified when people unite around a central shared purpose. When many people unite behind a single goal or strong vision, it is wise to take personal precautions to protect your own reasonable self-interests, because these can easily be lost in the crowd.
