Sunday’s Spells

 

Finally, it’s Sunday, the official day of rest. Not only do Christians acknowledge this day, but I’m sure many pagans appreciate this day, as well. Everyone needs rest and a lot of people need a good day to worship their creator(whomever or whatever that may be), however they deem fit to do so. With the Sun being the central theme of many ancient rituals, Sunday just seems to fit, in name and theory. Not only is it a good day to worship, it seems good to do more relaxed spells, such as sleep, dream, and rebirth.

 

A Spell for While you Sleep

You will need the following items for this spell:

Four lengths of appropriately coloured ribbon
which can be easily tied
Four pins
Your bed

Knot magic has a particular effect in ‘binding’ or fixing a spell in place and with the addition of colour it is possible to use ribbons to bring about a desired outcome. By using your own bed as a focus, your magical work can be done while you sleep. This is a very personal way of working and one which can bring particularly positive results.

If your bed has bedposts, simply knot a length of the correct colour ribbon for your purpose around each post.

Each time you do this, say:

With this knot of coloured ribbon

Bring to me the power hidden. Grant me that right Throughout this night.

If your bed has no posts then carefully pin the knotted ribbon to each corner using the same words.
Each night for two further nights touch each ribbon knot in turn and repeat the words above.

Leave the ribbons in place until you no longer feel the need for them. You can expect to have some fairly vivid dreams over the following three nights, which may help you to develop the qualities you seek. This spell allows your unconscious self to work in a protected space without the chatter of day to day matters.

 

To Protect a Sleeping Mind

You will need the following items for this spell:

Voice

Sleep is the time of dreams and visits. The following incantation repeated aloud at one’s bedtime will aid in the discouraging of unwanted visitors in the dreaming mind.

Before retiring for the night, repeat the following incantation aloud:

”Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea,

Draw close and circle round

Mine mind I clear and lend to sleep.

That sleep will use to rest the weary world

Let not the world and those unfavorable things within it

Visit upon mine mind unheralded

Uninvited visitors be sent away

Turned back

Turned back to the dark depths

Turned back to the sender whose name is never spoken

That thus he may gain strength

Gain strength and threaten those unable

Unable or unknowing

Unknowing or innocent

Innocents in the world

Sleeping as I sleep

Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea

Find favor and protect mine mind

Find favor and protect the innocents”.

This is best repeated nightly so as to protect ones mind and allow peaceful sleep and promote quiet dreams.

 

To Drive Away Bad Dreams

You will need the following items for this spell:

Bowl of warm water
Salt
Your chosen sprigs of herbs
String

This spell uses herbal magick and correspondences to clear the bedroom of negative influence. It is often a good idea to use material that is easily available, so you might use sprigs of rosemary, sage, Lady’s bedstraw, maize silks or broom-corn. Since you want something taken away you should perform this magical working as the Moon wanes.

Dissolve the salt in the warm water.

Tie the herbs together.

Dip the sprigs in the water and sprinkle the corners of the room with the water.

Use the sprigs to sprinkle the salt water on your bedclothes, and particularly round the head and foot of the bed.

When you have done this, place the herbs under your pillow, or if you prefer, under the middle of the bed.

The next morning, discard the herbs at a crossroads if you can, either by burying them or allowing them to disperse to the four winds. Otherwise ensure that you have carried them well away from your home.
This carries all negativity away from your bedroom and bed. This spell uses rosemary which brings clarity, sage for wisdom, ladies bedstraw which is said to have lined the manger at Christs birth, and broom corn, which is used in worship of the Mexican goddess Chicomecohuatl. All these herbs bring cleansing, not just of the room but also of the occupants aura or subtle energy. On the basis that one should always replace negative with positive, you may like to use the following technique to bring about positive dreams.

Having prepared your environment, this next technique is of most use when there is a strong, deeply felt association with the issue or request being considered in magical terms, ideal conditions for spell working. It is like being able to consult an encyclopedia that contains a wealth of information in fact, the Higher Self.

Tarot

Today’s Tarot card reading comes from The Green Witch Tarot Deck and The Green Witch Tarot Companion by Ann Moura. With the art done by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard. Copyright 2015 The 4 suits in this deck have an element the each relate to: The pentacle is related to the element of earth. The athame is related to the element of air. The wand is related to the element of fire. The chalice is related to the element of water.

General

Nature – 15 in Major Arcana

Pages 76 to 78

This is the card of wild Nature, where the path chosen may be joyful and unrestricted or fraught with unseen dangers and overgrown vines. Here the trapper is setting a bear trap, unaware that the bear is behind him, watching. The man is equally oblivious to the fauns of the wilderness dancing in a distant clearing, one even beckoning to the bear.

Choices are the highlight of this card, as are possible repercussions. The warning is that short-term goals that require personal sacrifice are not always in one’s best interests. Will the bear join in the revelry of the nature spirits, or will it risk being entrapped by reaching into something unnatural? People also choose the direction they travel in their lives, and sometimes what originally seems like a blessing turns out to be false. Then the choice becomes whether or not to liberate oneself. Staying in the job that pays well but has an unpleasant work environment or staying in an unrewarding relationship because of the experience of other only two examples of how one may take on undesired burdens. The restrictions that are self-imposed may also be self-released, so that one may better savory the joy of life and dance with the fauns. One may choose to act freely, to laugh at the result if necessary, or be tied to a situation, a way of life, or an attitude that is not enjoyed or liked.

Following the natural desire and inclination to find satisfaction in life is a matter of conscious deliberation and decision, whether in areas of attitude, materialism, or spirituality. Yet there is the allure of trying to control the material world or letting desire rule a person. The Divine in nature offers harmony in living a natural life, enjoying the material aspects as well as the spiritual, and regaining control over one’s life and laughing at the tripping vines. This comfortable relationship with nature is part of the path of the Craft, allowing one to be linked with nature and the divine. Comfrey, symbolizing binding, control, and liberation from control, grows close to the trap. The black bear represents endurance, introspection, and decisions.

Meaning: Accept or release self-imposed restrictions, follow inclinations, potential is obstructed or unleashed, allow the natural course to flow, freedom, choose what appeals.

Prompt Words: Choice of restriction or freedom.

 Love

Six of Chalices

Pages 208 to 209

This is a card of nostalgia, remembering and making happy memories. A reunion or an unexpected encounter with someone from the past is possible. With thoughts directed to the past, there may be an attempt to bring comfort or ideals of the past to be realized in the present. There may be a desire to relive good memories in the present, as when a parent passes a tradition or hobby interest down to children and grandchildren, or when one attempts to repeat one’s childhood in parenting. This could lead to disappointment when what was meaningful to one is not received with enthusiasm by the beneficiary. The initial disappointment could be liberating opportunity to step beyond the wistfulness of the past and move into the reality of the present, to be able to acknowledge and appreciate the differences of others. There is both longing for the good old days and a desire to bring some of those good memories into the present, but with care an relevance to the current life. Living in the past can create a sense of melancholy, yet there may be connections to the past that can be utilized to manifest past dreams in the present.

Marjoram, an herb of happy memories, comfort, connections, and family, is carried by the girl. A canary, a symbol of companionship, happiness, and harmony, is carried in a cage by the boy.

Meaning: Longings, happy memories, harmony, reminiscence, reunions, expectations manifested, self-analysis, renewal.

Prompt Words: Happy memories, renewal.

From The Summer Goddess Book of Shadows

The Moon

The Flight Rune stands for a time when you will finally break free and overcome obstacles that have impeded your progress.

You can look forward to a time when all communications; physical, meta-physical and spiritual are of great importance.

Expect to be given news that will alter your direction. Look to gain sudden insights and crucial revelations.

This rune signifies the kind of communication that changes your course of action, so there may be shake-ups or surprises in events you had already planned.

Ogham

From Ogham Symbol Gallery

Straith

This symbol, used for the sound St, is Straith (sometimes seen as Straif), the Blackthorn tree. A symbol of authority and control, the Blackthorn is connected to strength and triumph over adversity. Blackthorn is a tree (although some might argue it’s more of a really big shrub) of winter, and its berries only ripen after the first frost. White flowers appear in the spring, and the bark is black and thorny.

On a medicinal level, Blackthorn berries–sloe berries–are brewed to make a tonic (this is what Sloe Gin is made from). The tonic can be used as a laxative and/or diuretic, as well as a skin astringent. In folklore, the Blackthorn has a fairly unpleasant reputation. An English legend refers to a devastating winter as a “Blackthorn Winter.” It also represents the darker side of magic and witchcraft. Because it’s a plant that becomes hardy when all around it is dying, it is associated with the Dark Mother, the Crone aspect of the Goddess, particularly the Cailleach in some parts of Scotland and Ireland. There is also a strong connection to the Morrighan, because of Blackthorn’s association with the blood and death of warriors. In fact, in early Celtic culture, the Blackthorn was popular for its use in the cudgel shillelagh.

Straith Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to change. Your plans may be altered, or even destroyed, so plan to deal with it. The appearance of Straith often indicates the influence of external forces.

Magical Aspects: You’re at the beginning of a new journey, and there will be some surprises–possibly unpleasant ones–along the way. Overcoming these obstacles will give you strength. Realize that you–and your life–are changing.

Numerology

From NUMEROLOGY SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS

Six

The 6 is considered the most harmonious of all single-digit numbers in numerology.

The Numerology Meaning of the Number 6: THE CARETAKER

The most important attribute of the 6 is its loving, caring nature. Aptly nicknamed the motherhood/fatherhood number, the 6 is all about sacrifice, healing, protecting, and teaching others.

No family or community can function without the attention of the 6 – it is the glue that keeps a family and community together.

Creating an environment of peace and harmony is always at the forefront.

Home, family, and friends are top priorities. People with a 6 in their core numbers often focus on the young, the old, and those less fortunate.

The 6 is sympathetic, favors the underdog, and has a keen sense of what is fair and just. Perceiving injustice, the 6 will sacrifice immense time and effort to set things straight. Highly responsible, the 6 can be counted on to show up and do more than their fair share of the work. People with a 6 can be demanding, but they will work in the background when needed, without an expectation of reward.

The 6 is graceful, warm, and has a good sense of humor.

They are well respected in the workplace due to their sense of duty and responsibility – but also because they are genuinely well-liked. Many 6’s can be found in teaching, healing, counseling, construction, the legal field, and law enforcement.

On the negative side, the 6 can be jealous and small-minded, often focusing on small details while ignoring the bigger picture (often to their own detriment).

Not always the best judge of character, the 6 has been known to sacrifice for a person or cause not worth the price.

At times, the 6 can become too involved in the lives of those held dear, to the point where concern becomes intrusive and meddling. On the other hand, the 6 – ever sacrificing – can become a doormat to be abused and trampled on. The 6 is idealistic, trusting, and easy to take advantage of.

The 6 can be conventional, and must be wary of adopting the opinions of others instead of using their own mind.

They can also be smug and arrogant, especially toward authority figures and institutions. Sometimes annoyingly self-righteous, the 6 can become an intolerant zealot. A disproportional number of people with OCD have the 6 prominent in their charts and can suffer from anxiety and other phobias.

The 6, while loving, caring, and full of sympathy for others, can be self-centered and egotistical if people at the receiving end don’t show the gratitude expected. Typically, however, those fortunate enough to receive the attention of the 6 genuinely appreciate and cherish them in return.

Numerology views no number as without weaknesses and faults; that said, the 6 remains the most harmonious and stable among them. Perhaps for that reason, when the 6 (occasionally) falls into discord, it can become the most destructive and dangerous of all numbers. Beware of a cynical or angry 6, who can become a merciless wolf in sheep’s clothing.

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you might have pie-in-the-sky plans for something to do with your home or your family. (It’s a Neptune thang.) Or perhaps, you will have a heart-to-heart conversation with a family member? Whatever happens, you will want to help others today.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might spend a lot of time daydreaming and not getting much done today. Don’t worry because we all need days like this. Sometimes dreams are very refreshing. Because your imagination will be stimulated, you might come up with some creative ideas.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be careful about major purchases or financial ideas today because you might be influenced by subconscious fantasies. For example, you might buy something extravagantly luxurious and later regret it. Or you might have unrealistic plans about how to make money.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today Mercury is in your sign dancing with fuzzy Neptune, which heightens your sympathy for others. It’s easy for you to put yourself in their place and know exactly how they feel in a particular situation. This is actually a good thing. Compassion and kindness are so important.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your sympathy for someone today might be so strong that you feel you will do whatever you can to help them because you are truly selfless. In other words, you’re prepared to make a sacrifice on behalf of someone else. Sometimes this is the noble thing to do. Sometimes not.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you might idealize a friend, especially someone younger than you, and want to help them. Possibly, you will join forces with a charitable group and do what you can to benefit others who need help? You might also hang out with a friend and just relax in a dreamy way.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A discussion with a parent, boss or someone in authority might include your concern to try to help people who are less fortunate today. That’s because you feel sympathy for others, and you will use your influence or the influence of someone else if you can help to make a situation better. (A good thing to do.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today you might be interested in psyche subjects or anything to do with the occult. This is because your imagination is heightened and you are more interested in dreamy fantasies and unusual ideas. You want to explore something new.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be careful because Mercury is in one of your Money Houses today and yet, because it is dancing with Neptune, it will make you feel great sympathy for others. You might want to use your money or encourage others to use theirs to help a third party. Make sure you know what you’re doing.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A conversation with a partner or close friend will be mutually sympathetic today because it’s easy for you to appreciate where this other person is coming from. You will want to benefit them if you can. You will certainly want to help them if they need help.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today you will excel at any kind of work that requires imagination. You might also become involved in working with animals or pets today, especially if you can alleviate their suffering. For those of you at work, you might become a sympathetic ear for a coworker.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your creative abilities are heightened today simply because your imagination is in overdrive. This means you will excel at any kind of artistic work or creative efforts that require an appreciation of fantasy and design. You’re in the zone!

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

July 23rd Daily Divination Journal

Tarot

Today’s Tarot Card Reading come from The English Magic Tarot by Rex Van Ryn, Steve Dooley and Andy Letcher Copyright 2015 (The unfamiliar terms used with this deck is in England’s English)

General

King of Wands – A Court Card

Self-Interest; celebrity

Page 79

Description: A king sits upon a sumptuous throne. He’s dressed in rich fabrics and expensive clothes. He seems not to notice the wand propped up behind him.

Interpretation: There have always been dandies’ dedicated followers of fashion, but this guy takes the cake. His hair is tightly curled in a style, or a wig, that must have taken an army of hairdressers to prepare. His outrageous hat that supports plumes that would put a bird of paradise to shame. Look at the lace on his cuffs! Those frilly pantaloons! I can’t imagine there are any callouses on those manicured hands. No, he can sit there all day, preening in the mirror and ordering others about.

This is the ever-present celebrity, someone famous simply for being famous, with carte blanche to act as selfishly as they like. Although our king has inherited his throne, he’s forgotten his source of power. His wand stands behind him forlornly, like a broken curtain rail.

It’s good to dress up. Clothes afford us self-expression and allow us to move through social worlds. When we forgot it’s all a game, however, vanity and self-interest  result. We start believing our own hype.

Reading: You look absolutely fabulous, but you’re expending all of your creative energy on outward expression. Don’t squander creative talent on unimportant worldly things.

Love

Four of Cups

Secrets; lies; deceit; even to oneself

Page 102

Description: A man stands in front of a table considering a scroll. He’s in some kind of library and has a merciless air about him.

Interpretation: This man is a collector of secrets and whispers. He’s Sir Francis Walsingham, Elizabeth 1″s ruthless spymaster. Or he’s George Smiley or his nemesis Karla. He’s Varys from Gamed of Thrones. He knows all the secrets. He has books full of them. As every writer of a thriller knows, to possess people’s secrets is to have power over them, to play them. Someone is pulling the strings.

Yet we also have an inner spymaster who’s in full possession of our lies, our half0truths, deceptions, and transgressions. He’s not exactly our conscience. Spymaster aren’t angles. But he knows when we’re lying to ourselves, and that is the worse lie of all. How can we hope to be true to others, if we’re not true to ourselves? When we lie to ourselves, we end up needy of others, constantly asking them to make for the deficiency we feel inside. It’s extremely tiring to be around someone who constantly says, “I am the greatest at this!” or “I am the best at that!” when we all know they aren’t. But when we’re open and honest to ourselves, the spymaster loses all power. He can’t touch us. He can’t get a purchase.

Reading: Is someone keeping something from you, or you from them?

Health

King of Cups – A Court Card

Balance; emotions contained through self-discipline

Page 111

Description: A king sits on a throne, which is a giant cup. He isn’t armoured and doesn’t wear a crown. He looks at the world askance.

Interpretation: The King of Cups appears a little stern, but I think he’s a good king, He’d probably treat you fairly. However, if you look closely, you’ll see he has a prize fighter’s nose that has been broken more than once. And those fists. They’d crack your jaw with one easy hook. He’s seen many a brawl, many a scrap.

The fact that his throne is a giant cup suggests he’s in control of his emotions now, that when the red mist comes down he can hold the anger back, keep it in check. But the cup is pretty huge and he’s had to work hard to keep all that emotion from brimming over. Whatever he did in his youth, the king has completed an anger management course and is a better person for it. He’s a spiritual warrior has achieved self-mastery. The he has found inner balance is indicated by his symmetrical posture. He encourages us to find the still point within, to calm the ripples, an be still.

Reading: The card suggests self-mastery and self-disipline, the containment of emotions.

 

Wealth

Fortune – Number 10 in the Major Arcana

Fate; impermanence; changing times

Pages 40 and 41

Description: A Romany fortune teller steps out barefoot over the rolling chalk uplands, know in England as the Downs. The entire tarot deck wheels about her, all except for three cards that tumble to the floor.

Interpretation: Traditionally this card depicts an allegorical scene: a hand cranks the wheel of destiny. As the wheel turns, it raises some up to greatness, while others casts others down from their lofty heights. It’s salutary reminder that fortunes change.

Here the wheel is the tarot itself, whirling around a Romany fortune teller. The cards falling to the floor are going to reveal exactly which way the wheel is turning.

Our Fortune is kind of a fantasy Gypsy you’d want to run away with, like the “Gyptians” from fairy tale or folk song. But can you trust her? IS she everything she seems? Do you really want to know what she sees with those piercing eyes of hers? What if it’s not good news? Those clouds rising behind her could be fluffy clouds of fine weather, or the billowing galleons of a summer storm.

To work with the tarot—-to seek to know —is risky. There’s always the chance that you’ll learn something you’d rather not. The lesson of Fortune is that, for good or bad, everything changes. The wheel never stops turning. Enjoy what you have, right now, for you never know what’s coming in the morning.

Reading: At it’s simplest, this card indicates changing fortunes. How the card is placed in the spread, and whether or not it’s reversed will suggest that change is for better or worse. Whatever the world throws at us, we can choose how to respond. In that sense, we make our own fortune.

Rune

From The Rune Site

Thurisaz

Sound: “th”
Stands for: Thorn (or Giant)
Color: White
Casting meaning: This rune represents the ability we have to resist unwanted conflicts in a passive manner. It is a rune of protection and can tell us of a possible change that would have otherwise come without warning. You can use the protection aspect of Thurisaz as a defense against adversaries.

Witches’ Rune

From The Summer Goddess Book of Shadows

The Moon

Relying on old ways of doing things could impede your success if you do not handle the moon’s intuitive energy properly.

Drawing the Moon Stone suggests wisdom gained through experience of memory, but does not mean you should stay in a rut or stick to the kinds of habits that only forfeit your success.

The idea of family, home and ancestors is important now. Such memories may well be the key you need to unlock a certain puzzle that is troubling you.

Drawing the Moon Stone says that there will be a
sudden shift in the circumstances surrounding the immediate question. Bide your time before initiating any kind of action.

Now is the time to pay attention to your dreams.

Ogham

From Ogham Symbol Gallery 

G is Gort, the Ivy that sometimes grows freely, but often parasites upon other plants. It will grow in nearly any condition, and its endless upward spiral is representative of our soul’s search for self, as we wander between this world and the next. Gort, pronounced go-ert, is connected to growth and wildness, as well as confronting the mystical aspects of our own development and evolution. Also connected to the month of October and the Samhain sabbat, Ivy often lives on after its host plant has died–a reminder to us that life goes on, in the endless cycle of life, death and rebirth.

In folklore from the British Isles, Ivy is believed to be a bringer of good fortune, particularly to women. Allowing it to creep up the walls of your home would protect inhabitants from baneful magic and curses. It also appears in love divination in parts of England; it was said that a girl carrying Ivy in her pockets would soon see the young man who was meant to be her husband. Medicinally, an Ivy tonic could be brewed to keep away diseases such as whooping cough and respiratory ailments It was even believed to keep away the plague, but there’s no clear evidence that this worked.

Gort Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Banish the negative things from your life, and eliminate toxic relationships. Place a barricade of some sort between you and the things or people that would bring you down.

Magical Aspects: Look inward to find self-growth, but turn outward to find spiritual companionship with like-minded individuals. If you’ve thought about joining or forming a group of some sort, consider it well if Gort appears.

Political aspirations. Can be an administrator, often in government institutions. It can be insensitive, though, and needs a stable, predictable environment. OCD or phobias are possible.

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.

Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

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

Visit the July 2021 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

The Waxing Gibbous on July 21 has an illumination of 91%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On July 21 the Moon is 11.86 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

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.

For Your Viewing PLeasure

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.

Flashback 2002 Imbolc

Imbolc is an important day of purification and initiation; on the Sun’s day, February 2, the energies are very airy. This Sabbat is a good day for coven work, with an emotionally detached masculine Moon and Sun on the Sun’s day.

Dress yourself and your altar in white, while serving white beverages or any dairy food to honor the calving season. Spread the top of a one-pound round Camembert or Bire cheese with raspberry preserves. Cut a circle of puff pastry large enough to cover the cheese, wrap it, tucking the ends of the pastry under. Use scraps to decorate the top with goddess symbols. Brush with beaten egg yolk. Bake at 425 degrees until golden, and serve hot and melting on crackers. During this ritual, bless and dedicate all candles you will need for other ritual work throughout the year. A good way to start the ceremony is to light candles in the darkened room with chanting to encourage the lengthening days.

IMPORTANT NOTE for the Southern Hemisphere Imbolc falls on August 1st.

Flashback 2002 Lammas

Lammas is the first of the harvest festivals and this year despite the fiery Sun, it has a strong, sensual feel of cardinal earth. Mars lends a masculine energy to the Sun this week to help with the organizing for this bread festival. Round cornbread as a solar disk is an apt and easy choice for the altar, but if you plan several days ahead, you can sprout a small amount (1/4 cup) of wheat or barely for kitchen witchery. Add this to your other grains to your own bread from scratch; or buy frozen bread dough, thaw, pat into a rectangle, and sprinkle the sprouted grains. Roll up your dough like a jelly roll and place in a greased bread pan into which you have sprinkled Irish oats. You can use a sharp knife to crave goddess symbols into the loaf before baking.

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.

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.
