I Appologize for Inconsistent Postings

Merry meet and merry greet Dear Ones,

Those of you who live in the Midwestern, U.S. know our weather has been doing everything from rain to freezing rain to sleet and snow with temperatures acting like they are being controlled by a yo-yo. This is effecting how my body feels day to day putting me in out of fibromyalgia flares and bad arthritis days. I am posting what I can each day which means on good days more posts go up than on bad days. I am trying to stay current with your birthday horoscopes and the Moon Goddess’ phase every day as for the other posts its a toss up. Being i am having a problem getting all 6 time zones for the Current Planetary Positions I have decided for now to just do two- The Northern Hemisphere Central Time Zone and the Southern Hemisphere AEDT zone. I think I can make sure these two posts are also done on a daily basis. Remember if you want to know where the planets are at any given time in your own time zone you can use timeanddate.com to figure out what your time converts to GMT to use the Costom Planetary Position form for where you live. The website address for this is customplanetraypoisitions.com.

Thank you so much for your support and patience with me on the posting. Thank you also for your kind words and offers of sending me healing!

Until we meet again blessed be my dear ones,

Lady Beltane

How to Make Black Salt and Some of Its Uses

I live in an old house like built in the 18oo’s old. This home belonged to the foreman of the wheat farm who was a man of color. He lived here with his children and wife and it was also a brief stop on the Underground Railroad once Illinois declared emancipation of slaves in their first constitution in 1818 when it became a state. We share our home with those who had passed on in it culminating with a raid on the house by slave bounty hunters killing all the hidden slaves, the foreman, and his entire family. Somehow the raiders were also killed in this house so we have good and evil spirits here. Through the help of one of of my Priestesses in Training we banished the evil ones or at least we thought they were gone for good. Even after being a Pagan for over 40 years I used white tablet salt to do a protective circle outside and inside our home…wrong move. Considering these Spirits have lived here in life and death for over 200 years none of them will go away easily. We will not send any Spirit that is good to the Summerlands or banish them.

Last night something popped into my head, brought be my Spirit Guides and/or Ancestors, that I should have used Black Salt to form the protection I want and need around and inside my home. Below is a recipe for making your own black salt and a couple of ways to use it for protection.

“In some folk magic traditions, black salt is used as a protective element. It can be blended up and sprinkled around your property to keep your home safe from intruders or troublemakers. It is traditionally used to drive away evil, and can even be sprinkled in the footprints of someone who is bothering you, to make them go away.”

Make Your Own Black Salt

“Some websites recommend adding a dye or food coloring to the salt. However, when you add liquid to salt it gets clumpy, and then dissolves. So you’ll want to use something dry to color it instead. Here’s a basic recipe for black salt:

  • 2 parts sea salt
  • 1 part scrapings from a cast iron skillet or pot OR
  • 1 part fine ash from your fire pit OR
  • 1 part finely ground black pepper OR
  • 1 part dry, powdered black food coloring

Depending on the density of your coloring ingredient…

December 10 Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

Today the Moon will be in a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Visit the December 2020 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waning Crescent Phase

The Waning Crescent on December 10 has an illumination of 23%. 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 December 10 the Moon is 24.81 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.

All Signs

For the last 200 years, Jupiter and Saturn have lined up in Earth signs; which describes society’s values for the last two centuries. Wealth is about real estate, acquisition, buildings, land and manufacturing. This “Earth” world has a top-down rulership and a few hold the resources of many. In our lifetime, this is all we’ve ever known. “The one with the most toys wins.” Now we’re starting to see things aren’t working. This is because we’re at the cusp of a new 200-year cycle, which will be AIR, which is egalitarian. This will not be a top-down leadership. Air is about universal rights. Shared education, Medicare and a universal income. There will be greater use of technology, air waves, and society will interact via virtual realities like holograms. Looks like we’re moving into a Star Trek world! Resistance is futile. Set phasers to stun.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This might be a frustrating time for you because the planets indicate that you would love to travel. Oh yeah, you need a change of scenery! You feel frustrated to be trapped in a rut or routine. You want to get out and do something different, and you want to learn something new! Well, it’s possible to learn something new, which is probably your best option to expand your world. Explore new ideas! Meanwhile, this week, you can benefit from the wealth of your partner or the resources of others, which means doors will open for you if you need a loan or a mortgage. Some of you might inherit. This a favourable week to ask for anything that you want because you just might get it!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your strong emphasis on banking, mortgages, loans, insurance issues and shared property continues to be your main focus. As the financial wizard of the zodiac, you will definitely be on top of your game. You will see ways to position yourself favourably when dealing with others about financial matters. In fact, with Venus opposite your sign this week, all your dealings with partners and close friends will be excellent. Beware a tendency to idealize or expect the best in others, when it comes to financial negotiations. Obviously, one does expect honest dealings. Nevertheless, be aware of the potential for something that is unrealistic, which is based on either deceit or poor judgment. Hmmm.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The Sun is still opposite your sign, which means you need more sleep than usual. This also means your focus on partners and close friends is particularly useful because you more objectivity to see how you deal with others. (The mirror never lies.) You might kid yourself a bit dealing with bosses and parents; or perhaps you see them in such positive terms you cannot see them for who they really are? Interaction with friends and groups will be particularly vigourous, even competitive, this week. Whatever your involvement – you intend to win! Your relations with others at work are excellent right now. This is a good time to discuss agreements. Even your health feels particularly vigourous and solid. “Hit the floor! Give me fifty!”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This week you are still keen on getting better organized and figuring how to work smart so that you are efficient and productive in everything you do. (You’re on a serious kick.) This determination to work hard is a wise choice to deal with the willy-nilly confusion of this year. An efficient work routine is reassuring and comforting. (“It’s something!”) On the upside, Venus is travelling through one of the most fun parts of your chart, which means it will attract amusing diversions, romance and fun with children into your world. This is a lovely time to express yourself through any kind of creative activity. Enjoy your world!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This week, the Sun is in one of the most playful parts of your chart, which makes you want to enjoy vacations, explore romance, the arts and all kinds of exciting diversions. But the odds are you’re in lockdown. Nevertheless, it will be a rewarding experience for you to express your creativity through any kind of hobby, musical talent, drawing, painting – whatever. You will find this to be fun and rewarding! You will also find it gratifying to stay in touch with your kids by Zoom (if they’re not at home) because you have a greater concern for them now. It’s important to identify a way for you to enjoy yourself because in your chart, the Sun is travelling through “your home.” “Lucy, you got some splainin to do!”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Home and family continue to be your main focus. In fact, you are more invigorated than usual to get things done where you live. You also are relaxing and seeking refuge in your own solitude, while at the same time, conversations with parents and family members are important. (They might be vigourous and lively!) Because you’re thinking a lot about your past, this is a good time to talk to a counsellor or a friend to sort things out. Have you noticed how much you appreciate your daily surroundings? And how much others care for you? Incidentally, many of you can make money from your words right now.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You have a busy To Do schedule full of errands, appointments, possible short trips as well as increased reading, studying and writing. This week you’re keen to communicate to others more than normal, which is not unusual for you because you’re the most social sign in the zodiac. You need to interact with others! This is a good week to reach out and let others know what you think. You can do this by mail, by phone or by Zoom. You have the ability to attract money to you this week. In turn, you will likely shop for beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. Your ongoing efforts to improve where you live continue, and this pleases you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You have a fine, penetrating mind and this week, your thoughts are on money and your values. You want to know where you’re headed and how to handle what you already have, which is practical and realistic. Meanwhile, something that you own might please you and you want to show it off. Possibly, you will have to defend your values this week, which is something you’re always ready to do. (Fear not, with Venus in your sign, you’ll be diplomatic and charming.) Incidentally, this is another excellent week to buy wardrobe goodies. Isn’t it frustrating when you have great fashions sense but no money to prove it?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Ah ha! Another powerful week because the Sun is in your sign, which makes you energetic, proactive and competitive! (Keep this in mind if you are in a partnership because you don’t want to be too pushy. You can be right or you can be in the relationship.) This is also why working with others might be a tad challenging but hey – this only happens you once a year for four weeks. Obviously, you have a great need to express yourself! And it’s a valid need! Secret love affairs might be happening for some of you. You might also be called upon to take care of a loved one. You will demonstrate grace under pressure.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re still in limbo because your year is ending but your new year has not yet begun. Nevertheless, it’s a good week to plan for what you want in your year ahead. (You like to meet your future in a prepared way.) You know that goals will make future decision-making easier – no question. Plus, they give you better control over your future and a clearer focus on what is important. This is a good week to enjoy the company of others by Zoom or in any way that you can because you feel very loving and affectionate to friends and eager for some involvement with groups. What good can you do today?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A stimulating, friendly week! Enjoy interacting with friends and groups. Friendships are important to you and this week they are especially important. Examine your friendships to see how well they fulfil your needs – or not. Are these your people? Is your life enriched by knowing them? Do they inspire and encourage you or do they bring you down? With only 24 hours in a day, you can’t afford to spend time with emotional vampires. Life is too short and too precious! Meanwhile, this is the perfect time to impress bosses, teachers and parents. (Actually, you make such an excellent impression, a romance with someone in power might begin.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is another week where you look fantastic in the eyes of bosses, parents and teachers, which means it’s the perfect time you to make your pitch and advance your agenda. After all, timing is everything. (Take advantage of this blessing, which lasts for only one month each year.) Ask for that raise. Ask for that promotion. Ask for what you want! However, check the Moon Alert in my daily column before doing so. Quite likely, you cannot travel, which is what you would love to do; however, you might be attracted to someone new who is strange or different from you. An exotic appeal! Perhaps a little excitement?

Update on What is Posted

Merry meet Sisters, Brothers, and Guests

How is everyone this beautiful December, Sunday? Lady and Mr. Beltane are still cleaning, unpacking, and settling into their new home and renewed relationship. They thank the Universe daily for all they have and finding each other again. They send out heartfelt, warm thanks for all your support!

Lady and Mr. Beltane have ran into a huge snag to get the internet connected in their new home. They have to have a working landlines telephone jack that is in working order. Guess what? The one and only telephone jack is at the moment none functioning. The good news is Mr. Beltane can wire in a new one either today or tomorrow so hopefully Lady Beltane will be back on her computer instead of her tablet by Tuesday morning if all goes right.

So today and tomorrow will still only bring you the 4 main posts and the coming weeks horoscopes.
