OPEN CHAT – Northern Hemisphere on Saturday, May 21, 2022 6:00 PM CDT/Southern Hemisphere on Sunday, May, 22 2022 9:00 AM AEST

What was your first inkling that you might be a witch? Remember everyone the word “Witch” covers all sexes. Please share with us whatever you feel comfortable with about your own spiritual and/or magickal path. This will be one of the topics for discussion at our Open Chat for the northern hemisphere on Saturday, May 21, 2022 starting at 6:00 PM CDT and for the southern hemisphere on Sunday, May, 22 2022, starting at 9:00 AM AEST. I put 2 hours aside for this gathering but it can run longer or shorter depending on the number of people attending and how the discussions flow. We will be using a Skype meeting room with everyone typing in what they would like to say. Almost any topic can be open for a discussion. Please read the Gatherings Guidelines, located under WOTC’s School of Witchcraft on the main menu before contacting Lady Beltane at ladybeltane@aol.com for her information to enter the meeting room. The chat is held in American English.

Thank you and I really hope to see you there! This event will be held even if only 1 person wants to be part of it.

GUIDELINES FOR ALL GATHERINGS AND OPEN CHATS 

All gatherings and open cats are held in American English.

No matter what spiritual path you follow or the type of witchcraft you practice, except dark practitioners, you are welcome to join us for our open chats and Esbat and Sabbat gatherings. The Sabbat gatherings celebrate both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres’ Sabbat. Look at the banner on the right side of the page for information on upcoming Magickal Hearts Coven’s events. They are all held via Skype. You can join us by audio or video call or just by listening and typing in your message or response.

The main guideline for when we are gathered on Skype or anywhere else for any reason is the Wicce Rede: “An’ ye harm none, do what ye will.”

No one will be allowed to use foul, rude, racist, hurtful, hateful, or gender-bashing language at any time during any type of gathering. Anyone not following this guideline will be kicked out of the gatherings immediately and blocked forever.

This is not a dating site! If you attempt to hook up with someone or use sexually suggestive language towards anyone else at the gathering, you will be kicked out and blocked forever.

During Esbat and Sabbat gatherings, all conversations will cease 1 minute before the sacred circle is cast until the sacred circle has been closed.

During Esbat and Sabbat gatherings, no one may leave the circle without permission from the person leading it. If you leave the sacred circle for any reason, except if the electronic device you are using to attend disconnects you, we ask that you do not re-enter the sacred circle.

When attending a Sabbat gathering, we ask that you stay for both hemispheres’ rituals. *

* SABBAT GATHERINGS

Once the circle starts, all socializing and/or comments about the rituals must stop unless you see the word “EVERYONE” in the ritual.  You will get one warning if you break this guideline. If you break it a second time, you will be asked to and expected to leave the gathering immediately. There will be no exceptions to this guideline as it is rude to the person or persons leading the ritual (s). If you do not leave you will be taken out of the gathering by Lady Beltane. If this happens again at another gathering, you will be permanently banned from attending any Heart’s Spirit Online Coven gatherings. There are no exceptions to this.

No one should enter or leave the chat room from the time the sacred circle is cast until the sacred circle is closed. To enter or leave the chat room (the computer knocking you out of the chat room during this time is the only exception for re-entering the circle) during this time breaks the circle, and whoever is leading the circle needs to take their time and energy to close it up again.

All electronics in the room you are in during the gathering should be shut off except for the device you are using to access the gathering as the energy raised during the circle can possibly do minor or major damage to other devices.

Everyone attending an Esbat and/or Sabbat gathering is welcome to stay after the circle is done to visit with the others and/or offer other ideas for the ritual performed at that gathering.

These are simple guidelines and show courtesy to all people attending the gatherings and those leading them. Not obeying all the guidelines could get you banned from all Magickal Hearts Coven gatherings and open chats for life.

Any questions about the guidelines and/or anything to do with Magickal Hearts Coven, the open chats, WOTC’s School of Witchcraft, and Esbat and/or Sabbat gatherings can be emailed to Lady Beltane at ladybeltane@aol.com. All emails will be answered as soon as possible after receiving it.

If you are applying to be a student or coven member, include this phrase “In perfect love and perfect trust.” in the application email so we know you have read the entire handbook.

All lessons and spells are copyright 1980-2025© by Lady Beltane. They cannot be reprinted or reposted without author’s expressed written permission.

We do not write spells or do spells, hexes, curses, rituals, or any other type of magick for anyone, so please do not email us asking us to do any of these. If you do, your email will wind up in spam and then deleted.

Posting Times and Location for All Daily Posts

It was brought to my attention that the daily posts would be more helpful to plan spells and rituals or to know what your horoscope is the day before. Starting on April 13, 2022, the time for the northern hemisphere posts will be as follows – the date before and the date of and for the southern hemisphere the date before. Please let me know how these times work for you in a week or so either in a comment on this post or email me at ladybeltane@aol.com. Thank you to the reader that answered my survey and pointed this out to me, great idea!

Planetary position times have been moved from 5:00 PM for everywhere to 12:00 PM for everywhere. And I thought just going through clock changes was rough LOL.

All posts times for both hemispheres are given in Central Daylight Savings time zone! Times might be different on some days due to interruptions to my regular working time, like my fur kids needing extra attention, illness, a fibromyalgia flare, or life in general.

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be aware and mindful today because this is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids. Meanwhile, in some other way, perhaps because it’s Mother’s Day, you might be surprised by your kids? Social plans are unpredictable. They might be cancelled or you might receive an invitation. Could go either way.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your home routine will be interrupted by something today. Possibly a surprise visit because it’s Mother’s Day? (Or it might be something else entirely.) Someone unexpected might knock at your door or a small appliance might break down. (Horrors.) Get ready for a surprise.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Pay attention to everything you say and do today because this is a mildly accident-prone day for you. However, it’s also an interesting, stimulating day! Expect to see new faces, go to new places, and be full of new ideas! News from a relative or neighbour might surprise you.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Keep an eye on your finances and your possessions today because something unpredictable could impact them. For example, you might find money or you might lose money. Similarly, something you own might be stolen, damaged or lost. Stay alert! Possibly, you’ll have a clever moneymaking idea? Who knows?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign at odds with unpredictable Uranus. This can make you tend to jump to conclusions and be a tad too hasty. It also makes you feel rebellious and impatient with others. A Mother’s Day celebration might have a few speed bumps.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a restless day for you. The Moon is hiding in your chart, and at the same time, it is at odds with Uranus, which is bound to create some emotional unrest within you that disturbs your peace of mind. Fortunately, this is a fleeting influence. Steady as she goes.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A friend or a member of a group might surprise you today by doing or saying something unusual. Alternatively, you might meet someone today who is a real character. Think twice before you lend something to someone today because it’s a poor day for an important decision.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

People notice you today. In fact, they might notice that you are doing something unusual with a parent or an authority figure. Conversely, a boss, parent or authority figure might call you out or catch you at something. (“Oops, busted!”)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You have a restless spirit today, which is why you want to do something different. Ideally, you would love to impulsively travel somewhere. Better yet, hop on a plane and really get a change of scenery! Be aware of any health issues today. Also be aware of your pet.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Check your finances today and anything to do with shared property, taxes, debt and the wealth and resources of others because something unexpected might be happening. When it comes to financial matters, especially those that involve other people, stay on top of your game.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A friend or partner will surprise you today in some way. Nevertheless, you feel independent and rebellious today, so you might not go along with their wishes. Basically, you are craving excitement. Furthermore, you want to be liberated from any restrictions.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Do be aware of your health today. Likewise, keep an eye on your pet. There is an unpredictable element to this day, which means anything can happen, so expect the unexpected. Your work routine will change. You might have to help someone or work on their behalf.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Stephen Amell (1981) shares your birthday today. You are practical, grounded and well organized. You are also knowledgeable about a variety of things. You keep track of things and you like to plan ahead. This year will be an exciting year for you because it is the first year of a nine-year cycle. Therefore, be courageous! Be ready to act!

The May 8 birthday meanings say you probably matured before your time. More than likely as a child you were around older people allowing you to observe some of life’s ups and downs. As a result, these zodiac birthday people are no stranger to most problems, and therefore, you should have a near spotless teenage reputation.

The May 8 horoscope analysis predicts that as a lover you are found to be extremely romantic. More often than not, you marry late in life. No doubt, you can be fascinating, sentimental and faithful but you tend to keep your feelings bottled up inside. This is not a good thing to do.

The May 8 zodiac characteristics show that you have what it takes to be directly responsible for managing a mass amount of finances. You have a common sense or no-nonsense approach to material things. This does not excite you but helping others achieve their goals brings you much happiness.

The May 8th birthday personality traits show that you are patient and calculate your next move rather than sitting back waiting for something to fall from the sky. You rarely seek the aid of someone else. You are self-reliant individuals who make decisions on your own.

You are almost immune to illnesses almost. The people born today have high profile positions most of the time therefore stress is likely to occur. When this Taurus finds that stress has taken an adverse effect, it is likely that rest will cure most sleeplessness or irritability.

The May 8 birthday horoscope profile reports that you are smart and interesting individuals. You are aware of your bodily needs and try to stay fit. You live to improve the lives of others as you learned early on about life’s curves and curbs. Some roads are bumpy, and others present change.

The Self

Remain modest – that is the right of the oracle. Be in the world, but not from the world. Stay receptive to impulses, that come out of the divine in the inner and outer sphere. Seek to live the usual life in an unusual manner.

If you take the ‘itself’ rune and cut through it in the middle, you are going to receive the rune of joy and its reflection. So there is a fine warning not to be careless. The acrobatically dancing energy of the balance is asked here to bring its higher itself. Nothing in the excess – that was the second request that was to be read at the entrance to the delphish temple. The first advice read: Recognize you yourself!

Ogham

Uilleand

Generosity, discretion, beauty, subtlety, the occult, perception of abundance

Tree: Honeysuckle (Lonicera spp.)

Letter: P

The Ogham itself is like a bunch of ZIP files waiting to reveal itself to the patient and the thoughtful. Learning the secrets of magic is not a matter of coercion but instead a dedicated pursuit of perceiving subtle meanings and gently working with natural forces. The occult, as much as some people may want to imbue it with paranoid, ghastly images of blood sacrifice, merely means “the hidden”, meaning that which is not obvious and must be gleaned, sussed out, and pored over in order to understand.

Whether you are an occultist or not, it’s a good life strategy simply not to talk about every one of your inner thoughts and to censor yourself depending on who you are with. Some of your secrets never need to be known by anyone besides you, and that is OK. Honesty is often NOT the best policy, except with yourself when assessing your flaws and strengths.

As this Ogham connects with honeysuckle, it also ties in with the concept of generosity and the perception of abundance. The honeysuckle’s graceful, arching habit and profusion of sweetly-scented flowers provides nectar and shelter for many bugs and small animals.

Generosity is in no way the exclusive trait of the rich; in fact, the poor are notably more generous than the rich. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, people in the bottom 20 percent tend to give more than their capacity to give while Americans in the top 40 percent are capable of donating two or three times more than they actually give. Perhaps this is because the poorer you are, the more likely you are to have empathy you have for those who equally poor or poorer than you. Or perhaps this is because poor people are likely to appreciate the small abundances they have instead of hoarding and jealously standing in constant, miserable guard of their wealth like certain types of rich people. The elites at the pinnacle of modern monetary wealth are latter-day ogres: monsters who skulk in caves full of stolen gold coins, plundered weapons, and blood-crusted jewels. The perception of plenty often is one and the same as plenty, which is why having “lots of toys” has never been the path to happiness. Abundance has to come from somewhere, and one of the reasons some rich people are so unhappy and mentally disturbed these days is because many have spent lifetimes denying their own privilege while hoarding wealth that came from unfair consequences offloaded on those poorer than them and the ecosystem itself. Such “abundance” has a hefty karmic price, and it is as if the modern day rich ogres sense this and it quietly drives them mad.

The secret here is that generosity is a form of living by the golden rule. Give without fear and worry and you will …

Hexagram Thirty Eight/38

Name: K’uei.

Keyphrase: Opposition.

Formed By The Trigrams: Fire over Lake.

General: Reconciliation must be a key priority if there is disunity.

Love: Be as tactful as necessary to overcome a potentially divisive issue.

Business: You may find that lack of communication, or refusal to communicate, is causing a period of stagnation. You will need to remedy this before further progress is possible.

Personal: It will be necessary to learn to respect your enemy to resolve any crisis you are currently in.

Overview: K’uei is about communication. Or the lack of it. Being stubborn or indifferent to a situation and not talking it out will lead to progress being brought to a standstill. K’uei tells you that the only way forward is through effective communication and reconciliation. Extreme tact may be required and if so, this is the course you must take. You must learn to ignore emotion at this time no matter how badly others may be behaving. Do not allow yourself to be provoked and then respond with anger. It will be a mistake and you will lose credibility. Your behavior needs to be exemplary.

Numerology

Eight

Eight, as one of the core numerological numbers, is an indication of a dominant element, practicality, materialism and everlasting self-confidence. You are born to be a winner. Life is a battlefield for you, and all life’s benefits are the trophies. It does not matter if it is your battlefield or not, and which team takes the lead. You have the intention, and you have the goal. So the opportunity to achieve it will occur as well. You will provide it yourself, by any means. Therefore, those who try to resist your actions run the risk of breaking their necks.

Positive qualities

The positive qualities of the Eight are perseverance, courage and a great business instinct. People of your type control everything that happens in our world. No task is impossible for you, no obstacle invincible. You clearly see every next step both on your path and on the path of progress. Therefore, you know exactly what and when you should do.

You are reliable and impartial. You act tough, but always fair. If you take someone under your wing, this lucky person can consider their life to be well-off, and protection from any problems is guaranteed.

Negative qualities

The most obvious negative qualities of the Eight are arrogance, haughtiness and their habit of putting a slight upon the people who are in a dependent position. Well, there is also a couple of canonical vices like wrath and pride.

All these are the indispensable features of your business life, so they do not cause misunderstanding among colleagues and subordinates. In everyday life, however, such manifestations spoil your image adding some rough and unpleasant features to it. Learning to control yourself, so as not to abuse the family’s angelic patience, would be useful.

Payments can be made through the DONATE button on the left side of WOTC’s hompage. You may have to scroll down to find it especially when using our mobile app.

The topics are going to include are but not limited to:

More in-depth knowledge of tarot and/or oracle cards and/or other types of readings such as an Animal Spirit reading. Each issue will have one type of a general reading for that month. Each issue will focus on 1 major and minor tarot card number. 

More in-depth knowledge for astrological readings. Such as what does the Rx mean in the daily custom Planetary positions post?

Any gatherings that will be held during the month. For example, an Esbat or a Sabbat and/or an open chat.

Recipes regular and herbal. Spells. Longer Solitary rituals. I would enjoy having people submit their recipes, spells, and rituals to be included along with the name you would like to use so I can give you credit for your submission.
