Your Symbol Card for October 24th is The Rose

Your Symbol Card for Today

The Rose

The White Rose indicates the need for or the presence of purity of intention. The question to ponder is, “Am I/he/she being self-serving, or other-directed?” The caution is that even if we are reasonably certain our motives are generous, if we are yet attempting to impose our idea of what should be, we are not acting at the level of the White Rose. When the White Rose appears, examine your own and others’ motives, and then trust the answer that brings you true peace of mind.

As a daily card, the Rose denotes a time in which you will be best served by allowing your actions to be guided by what is best for the greatest number even if the path indicated is not the one you feel is best for you.

Poppet To Bring Love Into Your Life

To Bring Love Into Your Life

 

Material: Red or pink silk or cotton

Herbs: Rose petals, parsley, and peppermint

Gemstones: Barite, jade, rose quartz

Make a poppet to represent the object of your affection — remember that in some magical traditions it’s frowned upon to make a specific person the target of your working. If you are simply trying to attract love to yourself, but you don’t have a specific person in mind, focus on all the desirable qualities you want to see in a potential lover.

Pink and red and green and blue and gold…

Love goddess pink, baby pink,
Newborn infants, newborn love,
Rose pink, tentative, hesitant like the first blush of dawn;
All hail the love that comes in many colors!
Love god red, passion red, rose red.
Apples and valentines,
Arrows struck to the heart.
All hail the love that comes in many colors!
Love goddess green, sea green,
Malachite green of many waters,
Springing from the foam with the green of new life.
All hail the love that comes in many colors.
Love god blue, sky blue, deva blue,
Piping the music of love to many longing ears
All hail the love that comes in many colors.
Love goddess gold, honey gold,
Sun gold, ornament gold,
Golden glow of life; true color of love.
Hail Aphrodite Pandemos,
Love of all the people,
Love for all the people,
Love for all who calls your name.
Today we cleanse you of all impurities,
As your divine love cleanses our souls.

Chant: Love is a river, flowing from my heart, flowing from my heart.
(The statue of Aphrodite is brought forward, and the water is poured over her, and all hands gently stroke and cleanse her, and return her to her shrine. The wine is poured as a libation.)

Daily Feng Shui Tip for June 12 – ‘Red Rose Day’

On today’s ‘Red Rose Day’ we’ll employ two red roses to help attract a loving mate and everlasting love. First, be sure to remove the thorns from the stems of the roses. Then place two long-stemmed red roses in any white earthenware vase. Position this vase on your bedside table on the side of the bed that you sleep on. When you awake in the morning and before you fall off to slumber at night express gratitude that this Feng Shui cure will now make your romantic intentions grow to fruition. After three days, replace the two original roses with two fresh ones. Do this one more time for a total of three times, or nine days. At the end of the ninth day collect all the petals from all the roses and put them into a bath. Soak in all the love for at least twenty minutes. Dispose of the petals outside of the house while getting ready to receive a brand new love! Welcome home true love and give thanks to the two red roses!
