DAILY MAGICKAL APPLICATIONS FOR MONDAY

 

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.

Your Daily Rune for September 12th is Kenaz

bw-kenazYour Rune For Today
Kenaz

Kenaz foretells the coming of clarity and knowledge. It is time for you to grow by exchanging knowledge with others. Opportunities are upon you.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Kenaz

kenaz : torch

 

Phonetic equivalent: k (can also be used as a hard ‘c’)

 

DIVINATORY MEANINGS:
wisdom, insight, solution to a problem, creativity, inspiration, enlightenment

 

MAGICAL USES:
for creative inspiration, aid in study, fertility, dispelling anxiety and fear

 

ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES:
Mimir, the Dwarfs, Muspellheim

 

ANALYSIS:
In modern usage, the Scottish ‘ken’ means to know or understand, and this is the sense in which the rune should interpreted. Today, light, inspiration and knowledge are often associated, as in ‘gaining enlightenment’ and ‘shedding light on the problem’, and even in the image of a lightbulb going on over someone’s head when they get an idea. To bring light is to make the invisible visible.Unlike the wisdom gained at þurisaz, kenaz only allows us to take bits and pieces of this knowledge away with us as we need it, usually at the discretion of the Gods. This knowledge will generally come in the form of a sudden inspiration, and we will be able to see clearly the answer that was once hidden from us. This form of wisdom is more closely associated with the right half of the brain than the left, since it does not come through conscious effort but rather through passively opening one’s self to it. Thus, a more feminine element is added to our journeyer’s experience.
 

The act of bringing light into the darkness is also a creative one. Again consider the image of the person carrying a torch , representing the masculine elements of fire and air, entering the cave and penetrating the feminine realm of earth and water. This joining of masculine and feminine elements results in the creation of new ideas. In physical terms, this can be correlated to the application of fire to mold and shape matter – the art of the smith.

 

A Spell to Inspire You

A Spell to Inspire You

This spell uses candles anointed with peppermint essential oil to lift you when you need inspiration to meet an oncoming challenge.

 

You will need:
Two teaspoons of almond oil (or any suitable carrier oil)
Peppermint essential oil
A mixing bottle
An indigo candle
A white candle

 

Pour the almond oil into the mixing bottle and add three drops of the peppermint oil. Light the white candle and meditate on the purpose of the spell for a minute or two. Now roll the bottle between hands held prayer-style and when you feel it has been charged with gratitude, return it to the altar. Inscribe the indigo candle with the number ‘1’ before anointing it with the charged oil. Return it to its holder and light it. Hold your hands towards the flame and say:

 

I ask of you, Oh Powers that be,
To send inspiration down to me.
To fill my mind with ideas clear,
And remove from me all trace of fear.
And let it be done, that it harm no one.

 

Visualize the candle flame filling you with inspiration until it burns
down and you leave your sacred space bathed in inspiration that will
remain with you

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, June 8th

 

 

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, June 8th

 

Aries Horoscope

You have forward-looking, enthusiastic energy with you today, Aries. You may be putting more than usual energy and effort into your friendships, creative projects, new learning endeavors and interests, romantic affairs, as well as inspiration for ideas and goals. Creative ideas can emerge now that can be very beneficial. You can feel quite inspired to pursue a learning or mental challenge/goal. You’re receiving an extra boost of energy and motivation. The desire to do things in your special, unique way and to get things done is strong, and you may receive positive word about projects or endeavors. There is more spontaneity now, or circumstances encourage you to feel freer and more open. The coming weeks are important for liberating yourself from previous inhibitions, communicating in unique ways, and reaching beyond your usual bounds.

Taurus Horoscope

Today there can be a nice, enthusiastic feeling about a person, an idea, or an intuition – whatever it is, you can feel especially alive and motivated, dear Taurus. While nurturing your need for peace, quiet, and familiarity is just fine and quite natural and beneficial at the moment, if you overdo this, you may be missing out on opportunities to better your position in life. This can be a good day for money matters and for taking special care of prized possessions. You can feel a sense of accomplishment or hopefulness in business, and in your personal life, a stronger feeling of security and connectedness. There can be good news about the past that leaves you feeling confident about the future!

Gemini Horoscope

There is warm and friendly energy to the day, dear Gemini, and you’re at the heart of much of it! The enthusiasm you are expressing now is infectious. People may tag along or respond positively to you as you seem to be where the action and energy are at. You are getting support from your sectors of friends and communications, making it a favorable time for many things, including networking, creative writing, applying yourself to a personal interest, studying, trips, errands, computers, and more. If you need to resolve an old problem, this can be a good time to talk things through with Mercury retrograde turning our attention to the past. Keep in mind, though, that what appear to be small problems could in fact mean a lot more. Of course, with Mars in your sign, there can be the feeling that you can do almost anything. You certainly can do more than usual, but you need to pace yourself.

Cancer Horoscope

There is a lot of energy happening behind the scenes for you these days, dear Cancer, with a concentration of planets in your privacy sector. Today, the Sun and Mars in this sector receive powerful help and support from planets in your sectors of career, reputation, resources, money, values, and personal possessions. Your practical world benefits from your intuition and past experience. More meaningful conversations can emerge. There can be a reveal of important information or resources. There can be a stronger feeling of inner power and waiting is an important strategy now. Support might come from unexpected places or on the fly.

Leo Horoscope

This is a good day for sorting things out, taking positive action, and making important connections, dear Leo. Take the time to think about problems that have, to date, been difficult to solve, as it’s a strong time for finding effective solutions. A partner or special someone can provide you with a sounding board or simply a bit of feedback that helps you to come to important conclusions. Showing others what you are capable of doing is indicated today. Your enthusiastic presentation is hard not to like or turn down. Today is excellent for showing your more unique qualities, without even trying. Your sense of timing is strong. You are feeling sociable and supported, and this is a good time for getting a broader or higher perspective.

Virgo Horoscope

Jupiter in your privacy sector receives a boost from the Sun, dear Virgo, making it quite helpful for some time alone in order to draw upon your intuition. Even so, you may be playing a supportive role to someone now, and this can make you feel fulfilled and nicely needed. As well, business matters can really benefit from your attention. Moral issues may occupy your thoughts more than usual today. Problems suddenly seem a little easier to resolve. Your ideas are ambitious and you may be itching to put them into the action, but it’s important to feel the inspiration but make more plans and pace yourself. What you come up with now may do better after the Mercury retrograde and after the upcoming New Moon on the 16th. Things will come together naturally, and possibly more quickly than you think!

Libra Horoscope

There is a nice feeling of progress today, dear Libra, but it’s not about resting on your laurels. Instead, this feeling motivates you to do more or to reach further. There can be a resolution to a problem, particularly related to friends, networks, happiness goals and wishes, educational matters, travel, legal affairs, and publishing. In fact, any of these areas of life have the potential to benefit now, or could be a source of joy and inspiration. Others may bring surprises or can catch you off guard, but in a positive, stimulating way. Next week, news about or progress with a publishing, travel, or educational matter is likely to occur, and today, events may be such that the ball is rolling in that direction. Be positive and open for best results now.

Scorpio Horoscope

This can be a wonderful day for coming to important discoveries or eurekas of sorts, dear Scorpio. Your intuition is strong as it is, and today it’s backed up by research and effort. You can have great insight into work and health matters, and conversations happening now tend to give you a new perspective on people in your life. You might find yourself happily absorbed in a project today, and drawn to mysteries, investigations, and research. Chances are good that this will result in something valuable. There can be the support of higher-ups or a form of advancement enjoyed today. Even so, this is a week of transition, so it’s best to work further on projects and plans before making things official or making an important launch. It’s a day for feeling empowered!

Sagittarius Horoscope

Progress and self-improvement are in focus today with your ruler, lucky Jupiter, in harmony with the Sun, dear Sagittarius. Close relationships and partnerships benefit greatly from sharing ideas, plans, and visions. Others tend to listen to what you have to say now, and yet you also have much to pick up from others. People seek you out for support, comfort, and advice. Focus on eliminating those things that have been weighing you down. The weeks ahead are strong for personal liberation, and today, you’re catching the scent of this. There is a spontaneous feel to the day, which suits you very well! It’s also a feel-good day for relationships.

Capricorn Horoscope

This is an important day for ideas and inspiration, dear Capricorn, although it’s also strong for practical problem solving. You are more willing to make changes and improvements, and this is a major key to success right now, and to some extent, all month! There can be truly useful feedback and valuable information incoming. You might find yourself in the zone, and this allows you to focus on what truly means something to you. Work and health matters can especially prosper now, but it’s also a favorable time for family and home-related matters, finances, support, and backing. New approaches are key now.

Aquarius Horoscope

Put progress, growth, and improvement at the top of your list today, dear Aquarius. You are a progressive person by nature, and this trait is especially emphasized today with energies opening up minds to different ideas. There could be progress. new ideas, and benefits associated with partnership, negotiations, romance, communications, studies, creative projects, and transportation. Your energy levels are elevated, and you can be itching to move forward on a particular goal or dream, although you will likely do much better if you feel the inspiration now and work further before launching an all-new project or endeavor. (After the 16th is most favorable). This is a time for immersing yourself in what you truly love, if at all possible, and rewards will come, perhaps when you least anticipate them. This is a time for attracting positive people and circumstances into your life.

Pisces Horoscope

This can be a day for feeling particularly comforted, but also hopeful, about home, family, and work or finances, dear Pisces. You can be helping out or servicing others today, and quite enjoying being of help. This is a great day for letting go of resentments in order to free yourself. You are especially able, and also willing, to focus on what may need changing within. Your focus should be on making improvements in your home base, but also getting more comfortable in your own skin. Be sure to follow your instincts when it comes to your projects and endeavors, but save important launches for after the New Moon on the 16th, when things will be clearer.

The Daily OM for April 29th – Information and Inspiration

Information and Inspiration
Roadmaps of Life

by Madisyn Taylor

When we learn to attune ourselves to our inner compass we follow a map that only we can see, our own path.

All the major spiritual traditions serve the purpose of offering us a roadmap to guide us on our individual journeys to enlightenment. These roadmaps are made up of moral codes, parables, and, in some cases, detailed descriptions of mystical states. We often study the fine points of a particular ascended master’s narrative in order to better understand our own and to seek inspiration and guidance on our path. In the same way, when we plan a road trip, we carry maps and guidebooks in an effort to understand where we are going. In both cases, though, the journey has a life of its own and maps, while helpful, can only take us so far. There is just no comparison between looking at a line on a piece of paper and driving your own car down the road that line represents.

Some people seem well-suited to following maps, while others are always looking for new ways to get where they’re going. In the end, the only reliable compass is within, as every great spiritual guide will tell you. The maps and travelogues left behind by others are great blessings, full of useful information and inspiration, but they cannot take the journey for us. When it is time to merge onto the highway or pull up anchor, we are ostensibly on our own. Strange weather patterns, closed roads, and traffic jams arise in the moment, out of nowhere, and our maps cannot tell us what to do. Whether we take refuge in a motel by the side of the road, persevere and continue forward, or turn back altogether is entirely up to us.

Maps are based on observations from the past and we are living in the present, so we are the only true experts on our journey to enlightenment. We may find that the road traveled by our predecessors is now closed. We may feel called to change direction entirely so that the maps we have been carrying really no longer apply. These are the moments when we learn to attune ourselves to our inner compass, following a map that only we can see, as we make our way into the unknown territory of our own enlightenment.

The Daily OM

The Daily Motivator for March 17th: Be truly inspired

Be truly inspired

Be inspired by life, and yet go beyond being merely inspired. Act on your  inspirations.

Let life stir your passion, and let that passion push you into action. Let  the outstanding, meaningful ideas flow, then do something real and useful with  them.

Each time life makes a profound impression upon your heart, resolve anew to  make a difference. Take the real goodness you see, and be the living instrument  through which it is amplified and expanded.

There is so very much that can inspire you, in the ordinary moments as well  as in the extraordinary experiences. Consider each inspiration as a starting  point from which you can do truly amazing things.

There is a reason why you feel that warm, right and wonderful sense of  inspiration. It resonates so well with you in order to give power and authentic  purpose to your actions.

Follow that purpose, and make the most of that power. Be truly inspired to  act on your inspirations, and lift all of life to inspiring new heights.

— Ralph Marston
