The Truth About Prosperity Spells

I get emails like this, daily: “Rose, HELP! I’m in serious debt… can you give me a money spell that can help?”

Most people who send emails like this are looking for an easy way out. If you could sit down, light a few candles, say a chant, and attract a surge of prosperity… everyone would be financially independent.

Magick doesn’t work that way, despite what many people will try to tell you. (Especially if they are trying to sell you something.)

Here’s how Magick can work for prosperity: if you work a prosperity spell properly, it helps focus your mind and spirit on your goal… helps you to really believe your desire is possible… and gives you the confidence to go after it. Many of these changes occur on a subconscious level… and it may seem like any prosperity just “happened”. The reality is, it’s all you.

Now that you understand the truth about how, and why prosperity spells can work… here’s one of my favorite’s you can try on your own whenever you wish.

It blends the mystical beliefs of 2 ancient cultures to create prosperity energy. Combine this energy with your desire, focus, and emotion… and you can achieve whatever you wish.

The History Of Modern Day Witchcraft In A Nutshell

The roots of Modern Day Witchcraft (like Wicca) have roots back to 25,000 BC. Female figurines, images, and pictures of been discovered throughout Europe… all supporting a theory of a “Great Mother Cult”.

Throughout the centuries there have been many attempts to put an end to worship of the Goddess… all in vain. Goddess worship has stood the test of time.

July 26th Daily Correspondence Digest

Daily Horoscope Monday, July 26, 2021

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s Monday and in one way, you feel playful and up for fun and games! However, the placement of today’s Moon will also encourage you to withdraw a bit and “hide.” You might want to avoid social pressures. Your unconscious might rule your decisions today.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

A heart-to-heart conversation with a female might be important for you today. Certainly, this is a time when home, family and your private life have your attention. Home repairs plus increased chaos on the home front cannot be ignored. (Yikes!) Patience.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Personal details about your private life seem to be public for some reason today. You are noticed more than usual, which means some people are talking about you. It’s good to know this in case you have to do some damage control. Meanwhile, today you have something to say!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your strong focus on money, cash flow and earnings continues. Furthermore, your ability to please others with your words is excellent right now. (Everyone loves you.) As this week begins, you want to travel or get a change of scenery or do something different. Ideas?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Of course, this will be a powerful week for you with the Sun, Mercury and Mars in your sign. You rock! However, today in particular, your focus is on shared property, inheritances, wills, estates and insurance matters. All that fun stuff. You can’t ignore it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others today, which means as this week begins, you have to be accommodating and cooperative. As a Virgo, you will find it easy to do this because you like to be supportive to others. You’re always willing to help.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

As this week begins, you will discover you have to put your own emotional considerations second to the demands or considerations of someone else. That’s just how it is. This doesn’t mean you’re being a martyr; it’s simply the situation that is at hand. No biggie.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You continue to impress everyone because three strong planets are at the top of your chart making you look great in the eyes of others, especially bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Meanwhile, today, as this week begins, you feel playful and prankish! You want to have fun!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your desire to travel and experience more of the world or learn something new continues to be strong this week. Nevertheless, today in particular, you might want to cocoon at home or do laundry and pack your bags (if you actually can travel). A conversation with a female relative might be significant.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This week you feel intense about certain financial matters, especially anything to do with shared property or your responsibilities to others. Today, you’re willing to speak up! This is why conversations with siblings, relatives and neighbours will be important to you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You are focused on close partnerships and spouses much more than usual this week because the Sun, Mercury and Mars are all opposite your sign. Keep in mind that Mars can encourage conflicts. (Oops.) Today however, your focus is on money, cash flow and perhaps shopping. Ka-ching!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The Moon is in your sign today. (It is in your sign for 2 1/2 days every month.) Each time this occurs, it will make you more emotional than usual. However, it always slightly improves your good luck. Oh yes. Ask the universe for a favour!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Jason Statham (1967) shares your birthday today. You are charming, witty and confident. You are also a hard worker. You are great organizer; plus, you’re generous and caring to others. This year is gentler and slower paced. You have time for others, time to be kind to others and show an interest in them. This year you want to build better relationships with others.

Weekly Horoscope Sunday, July 25 to Saturday, July, 31, 2021

All Signs

Astrologers interpret information not only from planetary cycles, but also from the mathematical angles between planets, which change as the planets move. (For example, angles of 60 degrees, 90 degrees, 120 degrees and 180 degrees.) This week a lovely dance between Mars and Jupiter will occur. Mars in Leo will be 180 degrees opposite Jupiter in Aquarius, which is great news! (Some textbooks call this a “lucky” time.) Admittedly, it can indicate conflict and foolish actions, especially being cocky and overestimating things. Furthermore, people will resent anything that restricts their freedom. Nevertheless, it’s definitely a feel-good time. Masks are coming off. People are hugging. “Shops must be visited! Money must be spent!”

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It will be fun city for your sign this week because this delightful opposition of Mars and Jupiter will heighten the energy of two Houses in your chart. You will demand the freedom to be yourself! You will enjoy fun activities, social outings, romantic get-togethers, sports events, picnics, restaurants, movies and playful activities with children. Your sex drive will be aroused. In all things, you will be playful and adventurous! However, you might go overboard, especially with respect to self-gratification. (You know who you are.) Don’t do anything you will later regret. Having said that, you will excel in athletics. Without question, everyone will want to be on your team!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a marvellous week to entertain at home because your energy is strong and you’re enthusiastic! You might use this high-energy for redecorating projects or doing repairs. (Naturally, you will want to show off what you’ve done to friends and family.) In fact, the boldness with which you do things at home or your ideas related to family events will impress others, especially bosses or people in authority. In some way, your actions will enhance your reputation in your world because others will see you as bold and innovative. Meanwhile, because you are on this role of creativity and exploration- you won’t take kindly to anyone who clips your wings or restricts your activities. You’re full of ideas!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Travel will appeal to you this week because you are curious, you want to learn, you want stimulation and adventure, and most importantly, you have the energy to make this happen! You’re full of big ideas, which could lead to spontaneous short trips or plans for a long trip. (Who knows?) Whatever you do this week, you will do with great enthusiasm! Those of you in sales, teaching, acting and writing will be particularly effective. You might inspire others with your enthusiasm. The only catch is you have to be aware of possibly overestimating your abilities. Do not promise more than you can deliver, which you will be tempted to do!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are enthusiastic about financial matters this week. As a rule, you are careful and cautious because you hate to squander your money. Nevertheless, this week, you’re willing to take a chance because you’re thinking big! You have ambitious moneymaking ideas, which could be about beginning a business or doing something to make money on the side. You might also contemplate a major purchase because you are now confident this is the thing to do. (No doubt you have given this a lot of thought.) Although you sometimes hesitate to act, once you decide to do so – then all bets are off. You will move forward swiftly and do exactly what you want to do. Hopefully, no regrets.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will feel the luck and excitement of the dance of Mars opposite Jupiter this week because Mars is in Leo! (Oh yes, you are part of this formula mentioned in All Signs above.). This is why you will be so enthusiastic and proactive about doing something. Because you have big ideas, it’s possible that you might overestimate something, but quite likely, you’re on target. However, you won’t want anyone to stand in your way. Your great strength this week is your ability to inspire others, especially those who are closest to you. You’re a natural leader, and when you feel enthused about something – then the world wants to jump on board as well because enthusiasm is contagious! Oh yeah!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This week most people are ready to go the whole nine yards to support something that they want to do. You might be one of the few exceptions. Of course, you feel enthusiasm and eagerness about something – that’s a fact. However, you might choose to sit back a bit and weigh your options. You are more open to seeing the folly of some “big” ideas. Remember The Honeymooners? “But Alice, this is the biggest thing I ever got into!” “Ralph, the biggest thing you ever got into was your pants.” You will assess what’s going on around you and if you trust a big idea, then you will endorse it. But if you have reservations, you will wait to see what happens when the dust settles.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This week will be full of enthusiastic interaction with friends, groups and kids. Even your romantic life will be hyped. Many of you will want to take a vacation. All of you will enjoy schmoozing with others. Competition could be a major theme, especially athletic competition. Your confidence is strong and you want to show the world what you can do. (And why not? Why hide your talents under a bushel?) Do be aware that you have the ability to inspire and enthuse others, which means if you are in charge of a group, or you are a teacher or coach, you will excel this week! Having said that, too much confidence (and certainly arrogance) are pitfalls to be avoided. Keep it real.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Without question, your ambition is aroused this week and you’re ready to go for the gold! The big influence that you feel right now is a kind of confidence that stirs you. You believe in yourself. You believe in your ideas. You believe you can achieve your dreams. Note: be careful of being overbearing with others because of your determination. It’s important to be self-aware and realize that we all have limitations including you. Nevertheless, others might be amazed at the timing of your actions and your success. Of course, Scorpios have tremendous willpower and determination, which is why they can achieve the impossible. Good luck!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a marvellous week for you because your ruler is Jupiter and Jupiter is one of the planets involved in this lovely dance that I mentioned in All Signs above. This means all aspects of your energy will be increased and magnified this week. (Naturally, you will resent anything that narrows your freedom or limits your scope of action.) You will be optimistic! You’ll be up for anything! You will feel brave, courageous even reckless. Be cautious about overestimating your abilities or biting off more than you can chew. Nevertheless, your physical strength will be revitalized and your efforts at most tasks will be successful. Certainly, you want to travel and see the world!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

When it comes to financial matters this week, especially related to shared property, jointly-held possessions or the wealth and resources of someone else – you are confident. Big time! You have ambitious ideas about how to deal with things so that everyone is happy, especially you. (Remember: Good business is mutually beneficial.) If you are in a dispute with someone about an inheritance or some aspect of shared responsibilities or shared property, you will come out laughing all the way to the bank. In part, this is due to your confidence and the fact that others believe in you because you exude such confidence and assurance and the appearance of success. And of course, appearances are everything.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an interesting week for you because lucky Jupiter is in your sign and it is being energized by fiery Mars sitting directly opposite. This will affect your closest relationships and partnerships. You might have big ideas about how to improve a relationship or nurture it in a new direction. Or possibly, your partner or friend has the same idea? Or perhaps you will meet someone new who amazes you with their ambition and big ideas? You are always open-minded, especially about modern, cutting-edge ideas, which means you are ready to endorse any impressive idea that comes your way. One thing is certain: this week you have the confidence to assert yourself in your closest relationships. Let’s hope this makes things work more smoothly?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Plan on a super productive week because you are hot to trot! You will have lots of energy to work. In fact, you will be almost tireless in your devotion and determination to get something done. Even you will be amazed at how much energy you have. Nevertheless, do not coerce others or be domineering or overbearing in any way. Just do your thing and let others be amazed. Work-related travel is likely for many of you. Not only will you work hard at your job this week, but whatever you do will expand your world in some way. Those of you who are recuperating from any kind of an injury or operation or health problem will have strong healing powers this week. Be grateful.

Thoughts on Black Magick

Lady of the Abyss is has a way to teach us new things from the Spirit Plane by me reposting a post of hers done on October 2, 2111.

Thoughts on Black Magick by Sylvana SilverWitch

article

Glendower: I can call spirits from the vasty deep.
Hotspur: Why, so can I, or so can any man; But will they come when you do call for them?
Shakespeare, Henry IV, Part 2

Black magick, the black arts, the left hand path_ the words conjure a reaction, a chill, raise the hair on the nape of your neck. I invariably imagine zombies, the voodoo walking undead or secret virgin sacrifices. I think, too, of dolls with needles stuck in them for malicious revenge spells, of death, injury and illness.

First, let’s examine magick; what is it precisely? There are numerous interpretations, and each person you ask will have their own. My favorite definition of magick is that of S.L. MacGregor Mathers, one of the founding members of the Golden Dawn. He characterizes magick as: “The Science of the Control of the Secret Forces of Nature.” I do like to commune with those secret forces, and to fancy I might have some influence, however small, over them. Ha, ha, ha!

Another explication is from the famous old grimoire, The Lemegeton, or The Lessor Key of Solomon. It states: “Magick is the Highest, most Absolute, and Most Divine Knowledge of Natural Philosophy, advanced in its works and wonderful operations by a right understanding of the inward and occult virtue of things; so that true Agents being applied to proper Patients, strange and admirable effects will therefore be produced. Whence magicians are profound and diligent searchers into Nature; they, because of their skill, know how to anticipate an effect, the which to the vulgar shall seem to be a miracle.”

Old Uncle Al (Aleister Crowley, pronounced Cro-lee) had another one of the finest: “The Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will.” This leaves a lot of room for doing what you please, but Uncle Al was especially big on free will anyway. I believe he would, even now, approve of black magick.

Another one of my favorites is that of a fellow, described by Doreen Valiente, who said in her book An ABC of Witchcraft: “Black magick can be defined as what the other fellow does!” Isn’t that the truth!? I have listened to this from a lot of people, who really can’t tell you what black magick would be – except a spell to kill someone – and I asked lots of people this question! They can’t describe it themselves, but it’s what “So and so” does! They know it when they see it!

When I sat down to compose this article I speculated, what would people want to apprehend about black magick? I would want to understand – what is it specifically? This is not always simple to define, the edges are blurred in some cases.

So, what actually is black magick? Is it all of these, or any of them? According to the Encyclopedia of Witches and Witchcraft: “Magic is variously described as white, black and gray, but actually it has no color. Magic is neutral and amoral. It can be bent to good, evil or ambiguous purposes, depending on the intent of the practitioner.” “The distinction between white and black magic is fairly modern,” according to occultist A.E. Waite, “and depends upon sharp contrast between good and evil spirits.”

According to certain people, there is apparently no such thing as “black” magick. Other people have differing opinions, like The Modern Witch’s Spellbookby Sarah Lyddon Morrison has a whole section, along with the charms and talismans, love spells and potions, that describes black magick and its applications. It is complete with specific spells: “to torment, but not permanently injure,” or like “punishing a faithless lover,” or “to cause a lot of agony,” and “how to make a marriage unhappy.”

Wait, there’s more: “To maim and kill,” and detailed instructions on “how to dig up a coffin” to get your hands on some coffin nails (presumably for other weird spells). To Sarah’s credit, the chapter on black magick includes a segment about ethics and contains plenty of admonitions about what not to do, and how you should never render black magick in haste. It goes on to caution you about what happens if you’re not positively certain about your victim or whether they actually did what you think they did, or deserve the results your efforts.

So, I guess it’s okay with her, as long as you heed the instructions – this seems to be the theory of quite a few people outside the Northwest. Speaking of the Northwest, I have discovered that people here are inclined to be a bit more conservative (or politically correct), than they are ordinarily.

When I began in the Craft, it was much more permissible to use your art for advantage or protection or even for retribution: the sort of things that are, today, considered by many to be black magick. This whole thing about the politically correct manner in which to do magick, or whether it’s okay to work magick at all – positively annoys me! I say, “What variety of witch doesn’t practice magick?” I have known a number of them here in the Seattle area. Hmmmmmmm. Maybe that’s one of the distinctions between “Wiccans” and “Witches” – I am a Witch, with a capital “W.” I am not, however, a Wiccan, and that’s okay.

I remember when the domain of the witches was just that, the dark side. We were outside the edges of society anyway, and we knew we had power and we weren’t afraid to use it. People came frequently to implore me to work a spell for them: to bring back an errant lover, to get a particular job, to get back at a person who had harmed them. I usually sent them away with instructions on how to resolve the situation themselves, though in certain circumstances it was acceptable to do the spell for them. What happened? Why is it not okay anymore to exercise your power? Why has the Craft become so boringly P.C.?

“The driving force behind black magic is hunger for power.” So says Richard Cavendish in The Black Arts,one of the first books about magick that I bought when I was about sixteen, thinking that “this must be what it is.” Cavendish also says, “The magician sets out to conquer the universe. To succeed he must make himself master of everything in it – evil as well as good, cruelty as well as mercy, pain as well as pleasure.” This makes sense, right? According to almost everyone that I have talked to, those who have been in the Craft for over 10 years, they all started out in search of power. Or at least that’s what they thought at the time. Many began by practicing black magick and proceeded logically, after getting their butts kicked (proverbially or not), to the Craft as we now know it and what they ended up finding is their own power.

When I was younger, and did not know any better – I, too, believed any magick that would work was great. If you could get someone to do what you wanted or to fall in love with you, or whatever, you were a clever witch. It is much easier to do what is now referred to as black magick when you’re young; you frequently have a lot of emotion invested in it, so there’s no wonder a neophyte might be successful with it.

My personal definition of black magick, if there is such a thing, about which I am still ambiguous, is: working magick that is meant to hurt, harm or to cause the loss of free will or to hinder someone else or a situation. Further, it can be just pulling on someone’s energy without his or her permission, and knowledge. Sometimes this is not done maliciously or mean-spiritedly, for instance working love magick to get a specific person, or healing a person who maybe needs the rest that illness provides. So in my opinion, you should be very careful. It works – it works well so you better be very sure! There is so much negativity floating around in the atmosphere that it’s easy to gather that up and direct it without much effort or skill. Should you do it? I can’t tell you that, but I don’t recommend doing anything questionable unless you really know what you’re doing and are absolutely willing to suffer the consequences of the threefold law of return. Because the problem is, it will come back to you, and you should be ready to have your butt kicked by it.

In my class, I teach that there’s no color to magick, that it all just is and it’s a matter of the intent that creates the Karma. I do my best now to avoid situations that might get me into a position where I’d be inclined to have to use my magick in such a way. I also teach my students personal responsibility, and I practice it myself. I would hope that all grown-up witches would do the same. That is the secret, in my opinion. There are not many people willing to take responsibility for themselves and their actions. I have heard many people complain about this and that, and how they wish it would be different to accommodate them. I say stop complaining and do something for yourself! Use magick if you will and remember to be mindful of your intent!

A Witches Spell – Spell To Assist In Readings and Divination

Lady of the Abyss is has a way to teach us new things from the Spirit Plane by me reposting this post of hers done on November 10, 2013

Spell To Assist In Readings and Divination

Items You Will Need:

White candle

Whatever tools you use for divination, such as tarot cards, runes, crystal ball, etc.

Not every form of divination works for every Witch. Sometimes it take trial and error to discover which one work the best for you. If you are having a hard time seeing clearly, try doing this before attempting a reading. It is also a good one to do if the issue at hand is very important.

If you still have a hard time seeing the answers you seek, you can try having your familiar help by giving them a choice of tarot cards or runes stones, and seeing which one they pick.

You can call on any God or Goddess for this spell. Apollo is used here because he was the patron God of the Oracle at Delphi, probably the most famous center of divination in the ancient world.

Great Apollo
Farseeing and wise
Help me see clearly
As if through your eyes
 
Bless now these tools
And the one who will see
And send me your vision
Of what is to be
 
Help me set aside feelings
That get in the way
So I might see true
In my reading today.

So Mote It Be

A Thought for Today

Today, dear Sisters, Brothers and Guest, I leave you with this thought

The Wisdom of Buddah

I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.

 

Blessed be

Thursday, July 22, 2021

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will feel happier in the next four weeks because you will feel free to express yourself and be exactly who you are. You will seek amusing diversions and fun in sports activities as well as playful times with children. Relationships will be more lighthearted, and flirtations will abound! Yay!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Home and family will be your main focus in the next four weeks. You might be more involved with a parent. You will enjoy time at home. Some of you will connect with a professional counsellor to examine your role in the family (past or present).

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The pace of your days will accelerate in the next four weeks because of a busy schedule full of errands, tasks, appointments, increased time spent with siblings, relatives and neighbours plus scheduled (and unscheduled) short trips. You might also read, write and study more.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Money, cash flow, earnings and possessions will be your focus for the next four weeks. In addition, you will also give more thought to your values and what it is that is really important to you. It’s vital to know what really matters.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The Sun will be in your sign for the next four weeks giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of year. It will also attract favourable situations and people to you, which is why this is a fortunate time for you (and the only time all year that it occurs).

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your personal year is ending but your new year will not begin until your birthday. Therefore, use the next four weeks to define some goals for your new year ahead. How do you want your new year to be different from this year? (A few obvious things come to mind.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your popularity will increase in the next four weeks because you will be more involved with friends and members of clubs, groups and organizations. Use this time to examine the role these relationships play in your life. After all, your friends are a reflection of you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

For the next four weeks, the Sun will be at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight, which makes you look more competent and capable to others, especially authority figures. This advantage is a gift! Use it to advance your own agenda.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Travel and a chance to explore the world through film and study will appeal to you in the next four weeks. If you can travel – do so! If not, sign up for a course, go back to school or explore new ideas to enrich your world.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

In the next four weeks, you will be more passionate about financial issues like shared property, inheritances, insurance matters as well as shared responsibilities. This increased passion will also apply to intimate relationships.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The Sun will be opposite your sign for the next four weeks drawing your attention to your closest one-to-one relationships. This will be a good time to form working units and accomplish as much as you can working with others. It’s also a good time to consult an expert.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your desire to get better organized and to become healthier will be strong in the next four weeks, which is why you will do whatever you can to turn over a new leaf. Physical efficiency will be important to you.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Willem Dafoe (1955) shares your birthday today. You are quick study who is independent and imaginative. Your work and your family are your top priorities.

Birthday Horoscope Of People Born On July 22

Zodiac Sign Is Cancer

JULY 22 birthday horoscope predicts that you are sharp as a tack. You always have a smile as you love life and have a passion for love. As your zodiac sign is Cancer, you are a magnet, and that could have negative and positive consequences.  You are smart, shrewd and calculative.

Sources say that you are a procrastinator and love the security of having things remain the same. You see, these qualities could affect you adversely if you want to make progress.

You are sometimes your enemy as you involve yourself in self-doubt. On top of that, you tend to stir your quiet and drama free life up a bit. It would seem that you are happiest solving conflicts even those that you cause.The July 22nd birthday personality suggests that you are an intelligent and honest person. You are likely highly ambitious, confident, and bold. You are proud and stubborn Crabs.

Warm and sunny, you can amuse the ugliest of bears. You’re creative and seldom make the same mistake more than once. According to the July 22nd horoscope, Cancerians are super sensitive and are capable of doubting themselves. However, it is said that you don’t take kindly to other people’s advice.

The July 22 zodiac also predicts that your life could have many ups and downs. The key to balancing your emotions lie in how you use all of that energy. Too much of anything will not be good.

What your birthday July 22 says about you is that you want a life that is comfortable and financially prosperous so you normally can focus on pursuing that goal.

In a quest for wealth, you tend to get caught up and forget to make time for your family and friends. You mean so much to them and should not disappoint them.

If you love someone born today on July 22nd, you are in for a real treat. These Crabs believe that love and loyalty are what a good relationship is based on. You are a good listener, but you tend to be flirtatious. A free spirit, Cancer is personable and sociable. A good partner will be devoted to you, Cancer and you plan accordingly.

The perfect soul mate for this Cancer birthday person will have a generous and loving attitude. You like to be appreciated. It keeps you motivated to do your part in keeping the love alive. However, when you get emotional, you tend to be intrusive and needy.

Nonetheless, you are usually the first to offer a compromise. These are easy, most of the time, as you aim to please in and out of the bedroom. As the July 22nd birthday horoscope rightly says, you would make an affectionate lover.

If we were to talk about your money and career, the chances are that good that you are concerned with being in a rewarding position both financially and personally. You’re as you’re good at listening and observing. These qualities make Cancer a fast learner who’s adaptable to many challenging situations.

According to the July 22nd astrology, you can be innovative as you are excited about your job and can work without supervision.

As a valued employee, you are on the ball! Equally, you are pleased because your bank account balance is likely to be in the black. We know that’s why you’re smiling and by the way, you look better when you smile.

Concerning the July 22 zodiac Cancerian’s health, it should be a no-brainer but not to you. Taking care of yourself should be first on your list of things to do. You’re a smart Crab, but you neglect your body. You don’t do enough to sustain your active lifestyle or take any supplements.

Likely, you don’t exercise either. People born on this day should drink plenty of water, and while you don’t overindulge in eating, you could eat the right types of foods. By doing these things, you will see an increase in your energy levels and your moods will be more balanced.

The July 22 birthday personality shows that you are a Cancer who are prized workers. You listen to people, and you are quick to learn new things. You’re brilliant, and you’re smart enough to know that your family needs you at home as well as at work.

You’re a good provider as you like to save your money. As a negative, you can be pig-headed, but you’re a Crab that looks good when you smile!

Thursday

Thursday is a Jupiter day. Here is the day of the week for prosperity, abundance, and good health. Thursday is “Thor’s day.” This Norse god gave the day his name and many of his attributes, including strength and abundance. Some suggestions for Thursday enchantments would include:

  • Wearing a regal and royal shade of blue to see how it affects your mood and your magic. Other colors for the day include purple and green.
  • Carrying a turquoise tumbled stone in your pocket to draw a little protective and healing energy your way
  • Incorporating honeysuckle blossoms and cinquefoil foliage into prosperity charms
  • Calling on Thor for abundance, or on the Roman god Jupiter for the ability to peacefully referee a fight
  • Adding a few oak leaves—which are sacred to these Thursday gods—to your charms to see how much better your spell works out
  • Casting a charm with wheat stalks for prosperity, and calling on Juno Moneta to bring wealth into your life
  • Baking up some whole wheat bread and blessing it for abundance. Be sure to thank the gods for your family and your good health.

Birthday Horoscope Of People Born On July 21

Zodiac Sign Is Cancer

JULY 21 birthday horoscope predicts that you are hypersensitive, observant and expressive. That‘s a lot of goodness rolled into one person. It doesn’t stop there. You are bestowed with intuitive and artistic qualities that can provide a particular movement within you. Different forms of art have different effects on your day-to-day life.

As the zodiac sign for July 21st is cusp of Cancer and Leo, you can be irritable when motionless. Those born on this day can be very outgoing and sociable individuals. Naturally, you are protective and have a deep concern for your loved ones.

The July 21st birthday personality characteristics predict that you love your family and your home. It is quite charming as are you, Cancer. On the other hand, you have a few weaknesses.

Those of you born under this zodiac sign can be moody, grumpy or unstable even. You stand your ground, however, when it comes to your individuality and your space. Cancer, according to the July 21st birthday, are personalities who are very inventive or creative. You have a spectacular imagination. People love you, as you are a wonderful person who is always helpful and nice.

Can we talk about your love life? The July 21 birthday love compatibility analysis says that you can be unrealistic and naive when it comes to issues of the heart. You can be overly sensitive and disappointed as you tend to expect too much.

If today July 21 is your birthday, you can do many things as an artist, but you cannot make someone love you or act the way you want them to. Despite your best efforts, you should redesign your approach to love and commitment.

As the July 21 horoscope rightly say, you are incredible, and someone would be happy to share your goals and dreams with you. Because the person born on this day has suffered disappointments before, you are likely a Crab that has trust issues.

A person desiring to make you their “Boo” should be funny, emotionally secure, and have the same values. This Cancer birthday personality is compassionate and easy to talk too. It is very likely that you will want to talk over your fantasies. You love a rainy night.

A job has never been hard for the July 21 zodiac person to find. You are well-groomed, talented, and skilled. What more could a sensible employer want than someone like you? Sometimes, you are hired based on your capabilities rather than your experience. You are innovative, and that is what most employers are looking for bright and energetic personnel.

You have discipline too except for when it comes to shopping. Those born on this birthday July 21st can shop until you drop. Mainly though, you save and prepare for the future so, this typically will not bind you if done in moderation. Sunsigns.org has information on everything under the sun including tips on how to budget and save money.

The July 21 birthday personalities typically are easy to be influenced, believe it or not. When it comes to picking up bad habits, you will! Contrary to the Crab’s nature, there are times when you do not take care of personal hygiene; basic grooming efforts go lacking and more so, your attitude toward health.

Habits likely to draw Cancer’s attention are smoking and drinking. The two go hand in hand. I am sorry Cancer, but both of those habits stink in more ways than one. It is suggested that you should use these vices in moderation. Try doing something productive and positive such as exercising. The next time you splurge, treat yourself to a spa day. This could be very relaxing and enjoyable.

The July 21 zodiac personality shows you can have negative traits such as being irritable, grumpy and obsessive. If you behave this way, you will be left all alone in this world. Otherwise, you are active at home and on the job. You desire someone to share it with someone that is sensitive to your dreams.

Occasionally, you wind up being disappointed because of your unrealistic expectations. Then you likely will go out and have a few drinks to avoid depression or stress and could form an addiction. Stick to more solutions that are positive so we can talk about everything under the sun long into retirement years. Take care of yourself you are most important.

Days of the Week Correspondences

Wednesday

From Learn Religions

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.

Today, dear Sisters, Brothers and Guest, I leave you with this video…

14. Witchcraft and Magic

Some may find this video does not explain the history in witchcraft in England. I present it to you to decide if you learn anything new about witchcraft or if you feel it is all lies.

Description of video: Early Modern England: Politics, Religion, and Society under the Tudors and Stuarts (HIST 251) In this lecture, Professor Wrightson discusses witchcraft and magic. He begins with the context of magic beliefs in this period, introducing the ‘cunning folk’ who had reputations as healers and were often consulted. He then considers the specific problem of witchcraft, the use of magic to do harm, and its identification by the late medieval church as a form of anti-Christian cult. He examines the distinctive nature of both witchcraft beliefs and the history of witchcraft prosecution in England (as compared with both Scotland and continental Europe), outlining the typical circumstances of a witchcraft accusation and what these might suggest about the rise and fall of concern with witchcraft. Finally he considers a number of unresolved problems in the history of witchcraft in England: the nature of the links between gender and witchcraft; the reasons behind the passage of the statutes defining witchcraft as a crime; and the exceptionally large number of trials conducted in the county of Essex. 00:00 – Chapter 1.

The Rainbow Chant/Song for An Easy Way to Cleanse Children’s Chakras

When my 18-year-old granddaughter was a toddler she liked me to sing her to sleep. She also sneezed if I used White Sage to cleanse her Chakras, so we made up a song/chant to do them as she was going to sleep. We call it the Rainbow Song.

Have the child lay on their stomach, sing/chant each color, the flowing of one chakra to the next and the joining of the child’s chakras to the sky/universe and Mother Earth three times each. Ask the child at each chakra what they think is making it dirty. Incorporate that with getting the dark color of each chakra out. Use your power hand over each chakra to cleanse it.

Then starting with the red root chakra sing/chant, “Dark dirty red out, bright good red in.” (Base of the spine) You can ask the child to pick something that is a shiny red, such as a firetruck, to see in their mind to help bring the clean energy in.

The next chakra is the orange sacral chakra sing/chant, ” Dark dirty orange out, bright good orange in.” (Half way between root chakra and belly button) Ask the child to picture something bright orange, such as a pumpkin, to help bring the clean energy in.

The next chakra is the yellow solar plexus chakra sing/chant,  “Dark dirty yellow out, bright good yellow in.” (Locate over the diaphragm) Ask the child to picture something bright yellow, such as the Sun, to help bring the clean energy in.

Next we have the green heart chakra sing/chant, “Dark dirty green out, bright good green in. (Locate over the heart) Ask the child to think of something bright green like grass or leaves on a sunny day.

Next is the blue throat chakra sing/chant, “Dark dirty blue out, bright good blue in.” (Locate at the throat.) Ask the child to think of something bright blue like a lake or a bright blue sky.

The next chakra is the indigo third eye chakra sing/chant, “Dark dirty indigo out, bright good indigo in.” (Located in the middle of the forehead.) Ask the child to think of something that is very dark blue such as a flower.

Last is the violet or white crown chakra sing/chant, “Drak violet or white out, bright good violet or white in. (Located on the crown of the head.) Have the child think of a bright purple crayon or a white one.

Now starting at the root chakra and going up to the crown chakra sing/chant,” Red joins orange, orange joins yellow, yellow joins green, green joins blue, blue joins indigo, indigo joins violet or white. When doing this part use your power hand and run it up the child’s spine up to the crown of the head in one motion. Do not lift your hand off of child!

Have the child reach their arms above their head as far as they can comfortably reach before you start joining the chakras. Each time you get to the crown chakra sing/chant “The rainbow comes out of the fingers to join the universe!”

Lastly, go down the chakras from crown to root joining them in reverse order of what you did for the Universal joining. Each time you reach the root chakra sing/chant, “The rainbow comes out of the feet to join to Mother Earth!”

By joining the child to the Universe and Mother Earth, you give them a complete connection to everything around them.

Any questions about this article please let me know, I will be happy to answer them.

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.

How to do a Basic Sacred Circle

The Sacred Circle described here is for those beginning on their Pagan or Witchcraft path. It is just one way of doing a circle. I make modifications to how I set my altar and do my circle at times to suit what I will be working on in the circle and for Sabbats or Esbats. Please consider reading different books and/or talking to other Witches for more information as to how the they do their circle. As with all workings of The Craft different people have different ideas and by reading and/or listening to others besides myself will help you to try new things to see what works best for you. There are very few hard set rules when it comes to this type of Spirituality as it is as diverse as we are as people.

In a coven the High Priestess or High Priest or Priestess or Priest might assign a task for member to do with setting up the altar, bring the food and/or drink for the celebration, call Watchtowers or even open/close the circle. Usually, the highest ranking person makes the actual sacred circle. I most of the time would rotate between coven members who did what including making the Sacred Circle, I figured how better to learn than by doing something. Yes I would check to make sure the circle was put together
right before we began whatever the circle had been made for.

This circle is what I use as a teaching tool for those who I can’t do a demonstration in person for. There is very little if any chance that you won’t do it right. When I start a circle I say I’m closing it and when I’m done that I’m opening it, I know this the opposite of what is usually taught but for me it makes more sense. Because when I start I’m closing myself off from the physical plain we live in, putting myself into a Spiritual Plain and then reopening myself to our physical when I’m done. Any questions please write
to me anytime. The traditional way is Opening a circle when it is made and Closing it when you are through with whatever you made the circle for.

I always start in the East, this is the way Native Americans and the Celtic do their Circles, other places around the world may start at a different compass point. So if starting at a different point feels more right for you then do it.

The reason for making a Circle is it helps hold the extra Energy raised as well as keeping whomever or whatever you call upon to help contained so they can not just do whatever they want, where ever they want or whenever they want to on this plain when called to you to help you with something specific. Remember the Wicce Rede “Do as ye will, less it harm none.” You can call in the different Elements-Air, Fire , Water and Earth to lend power to the spell or Ritual you are performing. You can also call upon
Goddesses and/or Gods or both that lend power to the specific thing you are doing. A few examples Kwan Yin or Sirona for any type of healing, or Hecate when blessing your home or The Green Man or Mother Earth to help with growing things, Epona to help with any domestic animal, etc.

Before you start your Circle bless a candle to represent you. To do this get a long taper-color of it is an individual choice write your name on it use whatever alphabet seems right for you for example English, Runes, Ogham, etc. Then bless it with sandalwood or whatever oil feels right for you. Put the oil on the candle by wetting the index finger of your power hand with the oil ( Your power hand is the hand you write with) and make a Pentagram three times while turning the candle so some of the oil gets on all the sides. This candle you will use to represent you when working any type of Magick until it burns all the way down. Then just make a new one. You will use this candle to light the
incense and candle at the Pentagram points and for most everything else that you may need or want to burn during Ritual and spell work.

Start by laying out your Altar:
Use whatever size table you have or the floor if you want to sit to do whatever you are making the circle for. If you have a pre-made Pentagram set it in the middle of the table with the top most point facing Northeast. If you don’t’ have one  use your imagination to form a Pentagram with the representations for each Element when setting up your Altar.  ( Right now my Altar has a bird’s nest with some tiny flowers, leaves and a bird in the Northeast for Mother Earth and a small metal Sun in the Northwest for Ra because these are the two deities I work with most often)

Next you set up the Elements by going clockwise around the points of the Pentagram starting with Spirit,which is represented with some type of little statue or whatever you may have the represents a Deity to you, in the Northeast or Northwest point. Next will be Air, which is represented by incense or a feather or a yellow candle set this in the Eastern point. Next is Fire, this is represented with usually a red or orange candle, placed in the Southern tip. Water in the West with a container of water (size doesn’t matter) or a blue candle and Earth in the North use a container with salt or dirt or some stone or sticks or a combo nation of any or all of these or a green candle. Place whatever you chose to use to represent each of the Elements inside the point or to the right of it or at the tip. When you look at them from above you should be able to roughly draw in your minds eye a Pentagram (star shape).

To the right of Spirit place an object representing the Goddess you will be working with, to the left place an object representing the God you will be working with or your Patron God and Goddess (if you do not all ready know who they are it will come to you as you work with Deities. You will usually find yourself drawn to one certain God and/or Goddess you like to work with the most. I have also used a chalice (wine glass) to represent a Goddess and pine cones or a small deer statue to represent a God) To the right of Spirit place an object representing the Goddess you will be working with, to the left place an object representing the God you will be working with or your Patron God and Goddess

To make the circle to contain the energy you will be raising and to hold the Goddess and God or Elements you many call upon to help you with whatever you are working on.

Call the Watchtowers first they protect the circle (If you scroll through older posts there is one just on Calling the Watchtowers). Kind of a first line of defense against anything or one you do not want close to you while working a spell or doing a ritual. Fill in the blank with who or whatever name you are calling to them to help with whatever you are doing in the Circle. For this your Arch Angels will be in East and West and Spirit Guides in the North and South or an Arch Angel to each position or each Element in their proper direction (working with the Elements themselves can be tricky at time and send then back from way they came is EXTERMELY important because they can cause all kinds of havoc when released from the Circle into your home) or use Arch Angels for all four directions. Using the Angels and/or your Spirit Guides is easiest and to safest thing to use when you are just starting out and/or unsure of what you are doing). I have at times when doing something I needed to draw more power for called Goddesses to the North and South and Gods to East and West. Calling on Goddesses and Gods to be in the Watchtowers is not a thing a novice should try until their mentor/teacher feel they are ready to work with that much power. The day will come when you will be able to do this safely. If calling the Archangels ( the safest thing to work with the first few times you do a Scared Circle) Auriel to the East, Gabriel to the South, Raphael to the West and Micheal to the North,

To the Watchtower of the East I call _______ to help protect this Circle and empower my work within this circle.

To the Watchtower of the South_________to help protect this Circle and empower my work within this circle.

To the Watchtower of the West__________to help protect this Circle and empower my work within this circle.

To the Watchtower of the North_________to help protect this Circle and empower my work within this circle.

After they have come you will then make the actual circle:. (While I use a different Magickal tool for the different circle levels you do not have to do this you can use your power hand/sword/staff/atheme/wand for all of them.) You might also have a glass or chalice with wine or juice or even water in it and a plate with something little to eat on it. This is for the celebration part of rituals after they are completed. You can choose to drink and eat before you open/close your circle or after you have opened/closed it.

Pick up whatever tool you are going to use or point your index finger to channel the energy through to do each layer of the circle. Most Witches I know only make their circle at ground or waist level. I do my in a series of layers on top of each other with all the Elements. Why? Because that is what feels right to me.

Starting in the East, walking clockwise or dorsal, with it in your power hand (hand that you write with), pointing towards the ground say, “I close or open, which ever sounds and feels right for you, this circle with Earth that no harm may come to anyone inside or outside of this circle.” You need to walk the 360 degree circle big enough to be able to move around in it if you have without crossing the magickal wards you are putting up.

Hold your tool or power hand and point upward towards the sky or ceiling. Again starting in the East walk 360 degrees while saying “I close this circle with Air that no harm may come to anyone inside or outside of this circle.”

Starting in the East, with your tool or your power hand at shoulder height draw a circle of flames (try to see the flames coming out of the end of your staff/finger connecting Air and Earth) while saying “I close this circle with the power of Fire that no harm may come those inside or outside this circle.”

We are mad of 70% water so for that reason I do not use the element of Water in making my circle. I have tried to do a layer of it between Fire and Air put the room got very humid from the Fire heating the Water and Air moving it around. When I tried it between Earth and Fire it felt like the ground below me was washing away so I felt unsteady on my fee. The humidity was indoors during the coldest part of the year and it felt like a hot humid summer day. The unsteadiness was outdoors in my backyard.

Welcome each Element individually into your circle Starting with Air going clockwise around the Pentagram .At this time you will light the incense if you are using them for Air and the candle you are using for Fire. I also touch the containers of Water and Earth and whatever I am using for Spirit.

Next you will call the Goddess and/or God who you want to ask for help from into the circle individually. Wait to do anything further until you can feel energy starting to rise in the circle when you feel it has hit its peak. This is the time you start your spellwork or ritual. You may feel their presence strongly or it may just be a little it depends on the person and/or how many times you have worked with whoever you invoked.

When you are through with your spell and/or ritual that you made this circle for; you will dismiss the God and/or Goddess individually by saying “________ return from where you came with my thanks and gratitude for power and energy that helped me with my work here today/tonight.” Next you dismiss the Watchtowers in the opposite order from which you called them in starting in the North and ending with the East by saying, “______ return from where you came with my thank you for your power and energy that helped me with my work here today/tonight.” Once they are all dismissed then you will open your circle staring from the top to the bottom walking counter-clockwise or withershins say, ______ return from where you came thank you for protecting me inside my circle from harm and let nothing done within this circle cause harm to anyone else inside of it or outside of it.

Once all the circles are opened or closed, again use which ever seems right to you, then ground the unused energy still lingering VERY IMPORTANT (excess Energy can build up over time and cause any number of problems in your home.) give it to Mother Earth and/or her water ways to help heal them. To ground the energy start with your arms raised above your head and slowly bring them down in front of you until your palms are facing the floor or ground and say “I freely give this energy to you Mother Earth to help heal you So mote it be.”

Another quirk of my when I have put everything back where it stays when not on my Altar is to say even when by myself, “Merry part until we Merry meet again,” because I’m talking to the Elements, Gods and/or Goddess. I always start in the East because of the pull I feel towards Celtic and Native American traditions, you may also start in the North or even the West. DO NOT start in the South as that is where all dark sides of The Old Ways start. Also feel free to embellish this however feels right to you. Just remember to make sure your circle is tightly closed so no extra energy or anything else can have free reign of your home and/or property outside.
