Happy & Blessed Thursday to all my dear family & friends!


I hope everyone is having a great day. I am sorry we are running late. I went back to sleep this morning. This is the first morning we have actually had snow. Believe it or not, after almost dying from the “virus” I played in the snow for about 5 minutes. Enough for me, it is about 10 degrees here. I came back in and curled up and went back to sleep. Nobody came and knocked at the door to wake me up. Come to find out, we were all asleep. I’m sorry but there is something about getting cold and then warming up.

Now let’s see how fast we can get this publication going………

Luv & Hugs,

Lady A

Calendar of the Sun for January 2

Calendar of the Sun

2 Wolfmonath

Fenris’s Day

Color: Black
Element: Fire
Altar: Upon a cloth of black light a flaming brazier, and drape many lengths of fine chain across the table. Place there also the figure of a wolf howling, and a chalice of animal’s blood.
Offerings: Blood.
Daily Meal: Red meat.

Invocation to Fenris

(First speaker:)
The Hag of the Iron Wood had three children,
And the daughter was Death,
The son was Destruction,
And the third encircled the World.
(Second speaker:)
I call you, Great Wolf,
But not to waking.
Sleep sound in your chains,
Sleep gently in your torment,
I would not recall you
To knowledge of your pain.
I call you in your dreams,
I call you in my dreams,
May we run together
In a world golden and fiery
Where a hundred suns
Blaze together in the sky
Like berries ripe for picking
Like rabbits to be chased.
May my wild self run with you there
And learn some measure of freedom.
(Third speaker:)
We all wear chains of our own binding,
Lest we do harm to others,
And within each of us stirs that which hates them
And desires all freedom.
Speak of him, that he may know you love him also,
Even though he must be chained!
(All speak in turn of their inner beast, and why he is worthy of love, even though he must be chained. Pour the blood out as a libation.)

How to Astral Project

How to Astral Project

By Ezmeralda Lee

Astral projection is the ability to essentially, have the soul leave the body while still retaining life. It is a basic temporary way to leave the body and still experience things. There are several ways to do this, one way is through lucid dreaming, another is through meditation and relaxing, and there are other ways to get there through altered states of consciousness. Not everyone can or should astral project. It is really not known, however, who is capable of doing it before they try it.

Difficulty:  Challenging

Instructions

Things You’ll Need

A quiet, peaceful room

Extreme concentration skills

A method to follow

Lots of practice

A meditative phrase

Patience

Guidance from someone skilled in projection

 

1.  One of the most common forms of astral projection is through lucid dreaming. You may have done this before and not even been aware of it. This state is basically the state of mind that you get while dreaming, but you are fully aware of what is going on around you.

2.  For projection to work properly, the body must be fully relaxed. One of the best ways to do this is through meditation. This requires eliminating all outside influences, and complete focus on your chosen phrase that you repeat over and over. This prepares you for projection because essentially your spirit gets bored and wants to move around and do something else.

3.  Once you have practice with meditation, you are ready to move on to the next state. This state of mind is basically the body being asleep, while the mind is still awake. This occurs through the repeated meditative phrase, continually repeated over and over, and by physically relaxing each part of the body one at a time. Eventually you will reach the altered conscious state.

4.  Once you have reached the altered conscious state you are ready to project. This can happen differently for each person, so it can be hard to describe. Some people “look for the light” while others keep focus on their meditative phrase. Whatever the way it happens for you, the important thing is to not think about it too much. This will cause a break in the projecting, sending you back to your body.

5.  Going back to your body can be a painful experience if it happens too suddenly, so it is important to focus on going back slowly. Again, this is something that is different for everyone, so over time you will find the way that is best for you.

Tips & Warnings

• It is best to arrange for some kind of walkthrough from someone who is familiar with projection before attempting. There are a lot of places a guide can be found, from different groups around the world to the Internet.

• The only way to be able to achieve projection is to practice, practice, and practice!

• Astral projection has the potential to be very dangerous. Do not attempt without proper research and the guidance of someone who has already done it before.

• Coming out of the projected state can be painful, so be sure to try and recover slowly, otherwise your heart and other organs might not be able to take it.

Daily I Ching Hexagram for Nov. 1 is 56: The Wanderer

56: The Wanderer

 

 

 

 

A seasoned traveler knows that a special kind of decorum is called for when one ventures far from home. He or she must develop a yielding nature outwardly, so that the ‘local contact’ or host can open doors and prevent unseemly errors. But inwardly, the wanderer knows that it is sometimes impossible to discern the true intentions of strangers — are they hostile, friendly or merely opportunistic?

The twin houses of mystery and discovery rule any journey. Each new day is launched on a fresh landscape, one that reaches out to grab our full attention. Though new adventures are a great teacher — and often a great equalizer — there is an art to living lightly in a strange land. Mindfulness and discernment become the keys not only to success, but also to survival.

If you are entering a new environment of any sort attempt to be sincere, flexible and undemanding, rather than obstinate. Let go of old attitudes and habits that could encumber you, or make you overly conspicuous. The onset of a great journey is not a favorable time to enter into binding agreements, or to start new enterprises.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for September 30

The 48 hours after a Full Moon constitute a time-period to distribute the enlightening energy-field just received at the monthly solar-lunar high-tide rendezvous.  Once you disengage from yesterday’s intense war zone, consider focusing your attention on serious studies or research projects as Mercury parallels Saturn at 8:37AM PDT. If you are more adventurous, then accumulate many of your recent dreams and visions into some kind of literary format as Ceres trines Neptune in water signs (8:50AM PDT). This latter aspect may also provide you with inspiration concerning your dietary and nutritional needs.  Keep on sailing with the winds of productivity at your back despite the challenge of a 90-degree relationship between Ceres and Pallas (1:18PM PDT). Sometimes a square between certain celestial bodies can provide the necessary spark to move you to vital action which vaults you away from sitting on your laurels.  Tune into the expansive and optimistic vibes that are always available when the Moon in Aries makes a supportive, 60-degree tie with providential Jupiter in Gemini (1:41PM PDT).  Gear up for a happy arrival of October tomorrow morning as Mercury and Venus both get on the bandwagon by creating two uplifting alignments a piece.  A little celebrating this evening allows the shift from September to October to be a sterling one.
