Saturday is the sixth day of the work week. It’s officially the weekend. Some see it as one of the luckiest days for gambling. It’s one of those days where you can do what you need around your home and relax, as well. You can take care of a little business then, reap the rewards. It’s a really good day to do collect, courage, reap, gamble and exercise spells.

 

Collect Spells – Collect My Debt Spell

Items needed:
1 sheet of paper
1 pen or pencil
1 gray ribbon
1 white candle
1 penny
1 bottle of glue
1 lighter or match
Light a white candle and close your eyes. Think about the money that is owed to you and how you feel about that situation. If you are angry at the person who owes you money, get rid of that anger now. Get the sheet of paper, bottle of glue, and a penny, and place them in front of you. Now, write down how much is owed to you on the sheet of paper. After that, below where you wrote the figure, glue the penny to the paper. Allow the glue to dry. Without breaking the penny from the paper, roll the paper up and tie the gray ribbon around it. Place the scroll you just made under your bed. Soon, you should be able to collect the debt. Once you collect the debt, remove the penny, give it away, and discard the scroll.

 

Courage Spells – Courage Bracelet Spell

Items you will need:
1 foot of orange yarn
3 white jewelry beads
1 pinch of orange peel spice
2 ounces of warm water
Fill a glass with two ounces of warm water. Add a pinch of orange peel. Let this soak for an hour. Then, soak the orange strand of yarn for about thirty minutes. Take out the yarn, discard the water, and hang the yarn out to dry. Once it has dried, string the three beads onto the yarn. Lastly, tie the yarn around your wrist and cut off the excess. From this moment on, whenever you feel scared, look at the bracelet and you should feel courageous.

 

Reap Spells – Bring in the Sheep Spell

Items you will need:
3 cotton balls
1 green sheet of paper or cloth
1 brown candle
1 lighter or match

Light a brown candle on a fire-proof surface. Nearby, lay out a sheet of green paper or cloth in front of you. At the far end of the paper or cloth, place three cotton balls. These cotton balls represent sheep.
Say this chant:

“I’m bringing in the sheep
And reaping my rewards.
One step back,
But another two forwards.
They’ve been out in the pastures
All day.
I’ve worked them hard.
Now, it’s time to pay.”

Bring the cotton balls toward you and blow out the candle. Whatever you’ve been working on should bring you good rewards.

Young country diary: I found the strangest thing in a rockpool

Living next to the sea is rewarding. Very rewarding. Particularly when it is the sort of beach that is rocky and covered in seaweed. Sure, it doesn’t sound as nice as the white-sanded coast in that travel magazine, but there is so much life to find!

Turning over rocks is a good place to start. When the tide goes out, all the small animals hide under rocks to keep cool and lessen the risk of predation. I have found many crabs, snails and even small fish such as blennies and butterfish by looking under rocks. But be careful to gently put the rock back where it came from.

On top of the rocks you may find jellyfish, such as the harmless moon jellyfish, the lion’s mane which is large and has a nasty sting, the barrel jellyfish and the rare blue fire jellyfish.

Sometimes something unusual turns up. This is more common after a large storm, when many creatures from deep or open water can get washed ashore. Recently, after a disheartening day of finding nothing but whelks and anemones, I found a small sea mouse, an extremely interesting marine worm with a short, fluffy body with large iridescent hairs on it. Sea mice are not rockpool dwellers. They live on the sea floor buried in the silt, so it would take quite a violent storm to wash it on to this shore. I was really excited – I’d never seen one before, so I took a few photos before returning it to the sea.

One of my other recent finds was a cross jellyfish, a transparent, deep-sea jellyfish with a bioluminescent blue cross on the bell, which can be found a kilometre under the sea.

So next time you want to go to the sea, skip those beautiful, but boring sandy beaches, and try a rocky shoreline. And remember, always handle everything carefully as you are dealing with live animals.

This spell can be used for finding out the truth behind someone’s words if they are avoiding a subject or lying to you, it can also be used to find out things that may have been right in front of you the entire time.

Things you will need:

– A small Lapis Lazuli gemstone which has been cleansed by either being soaked in salt water or held over lit incense

Step 1: Begin by casting your circle and lighting the candle in front of you, focus on the flame and use it to clear your mind of all thought.

Step 2: Take your gemstone in your hand, visualise a white flame in your mind with your eyes closed, try to imagine the flame growing larger and brighter until it fills the whole of your circle.

Step 3: Channel the light around you into the gemstone in your hand and visualise it glowing brighter than the sun, then being to chant the following: “Let the truth that I seek reveal itself to me, May what is hidden come into the light, so mote it be”

Step 4: Close your circle and place the now enchanted gemstone under your pillow, the answers you seek will be revealed in your dreams, you will not remember them but you will have gut feelings over the answers the next day, when you are not using the stone make sure to wrap it in a small white cloth and don’t let anyone else touch it.

The Full Moon for this month will occur in the second week on Friday, August 12th. The New Moon will happen later in August on Saturday, August 27th.

What is the August Full Sturgeon Moon?

August’s full moon is called the Full Sturgeon Moon, after the primitive fish that used to be abundant in North America’s lakes and rivers during the summer months. Having remained mostly unchanged since the earliest fossil records, sturgeons are ancient living fossils that can grow up until 3.5 meters long, or as long as two adult humans stacked on top of each other. Nowadays, however, it’s almost impossible to see a sturgeon during the Full Sturgeon Moon. While they used to thrive, sturgeons are now considered the single most critically endangered group of species on earth – and you might be part of the reason why.

Have you ever eaten caviar? Some species of sturgeons are harvested for their roe, which is then processed into caviar. Because of this, wild sturgeons have been exploited to the brink of extinction due to overfishing and illegal poaching. In addition, they are also vulnerable to water pollution, and their breeding grounds are often damaged due to agriculture and lumbering. Though sturgeons are extremely long-lived – the females can live up to be 150 years old – sturgeons might not be around for much longer. They might have survived the dinosaurs, but they might not be able to survive human beings and our hunger for luxurious delicacies like caviar. But there is something even more terrifying than hungry human beings: hungry ghosts.

In China, the Full Sturgeon Moon is known as the Hungry Ghosts Moon. August’s full moon coincides with the Hungry Ghosts Festival, which is when the gates of hell open up and the hungry dead once again walk amongst the living. The Chinese prepare offerings of food and money to satisfy the ghosts’ hunger, make them happy, and prevent them from causing havoc amongst humankind. In Malaysia and Singapore, Chinese communities set up musical stages and host performances, making sure to always leave the front row empty for the honored guests – the hungry ghosts. Under the full moon, people light lotus-shaped water lanterns and float them on lakes, rivers, and pools, in order to provide light for lost souls to find their way safely back into the afterlife.

Despite the macabre atmosphere of the event, the Hungry Ghosts Festival actually originated as a harvest festival during the Han Dynasty, during which farmers would pray to their ancestors and report their autumn harvest to them. Due to Taoist and Buddhist influences, folk beliefs combined with religious ceremonies to form the Hungry Ghost Festival. In Japan, which also had Buddhist influences, this festival is celebrated as the Obon festival. Japanese communities wear yukata, eat and make merry at carnivals, and perform the Obon dance.

In North America, Native American tribes also saw the Full Sturgeon Moon as signifying a time of bountiful harvest. The Cherokee tribes called it the Full Fruit Moon, and many other First Nation tribes referred to it as the Black Berries Moon. The Sioux called it the Moon When All Things Ripen. The Paint Clans, which were known for their medicinal prowess, would harvest herbs and medicines, while the Wild Potato tribes would forage for food. Naturally, they would also catch a lot of sturgeon. You, on the other hand, may want to celebrate the Full Sturgeon Moon by telling your friends about the importance of saving its critically endangered namesake.

August 2022 – Gardening by the Moon, Biodynamic Planting Guide

Please read this first:

1) Moon Phase x Moon Zodiac Sign:

Please keep in mind, that Gardening by Moon Phase and Gardening by Moon Zodiac Sign are two different/independent biodynamic systems and they might give you different or contradictiory gardening recommendations.

  • a) Each Moon Phase (except Full Moon and New Moon) lasts about 1 week
  • b) Each Moon Zodiac Sign lasts about 2.5 days

Try to experiment with these two systems to find which recommendations suits you the most.

2) Tropical (Astrological) x Sidereal (Astronomical) Zodiac:
(1-2 days difference in Leaf, Fruit, Root and Flower days)

There are two different zodiacs for determining the Moon Sign:

  • a) Tropical zodiac (Astrological) is based on the seasons – Vernal Equinox is fixed as 0° Aries (The 1st Fruit day)
  • b) Sidereal zodiac (Astronomical) takes into account Precession of Equinoxes and shifts 0° Aries back by cca 1-2 days. Maria Thun who was an authority on biodynamics was using this Sidereal zodiac

Try to experiment also with these two zodiac systems to find which system suits you better.
