Cold, Deary and/or Changing Weather Effects on Persons Can Cause a Multitude of Problems for Many People

I am sorry for not being able to let you all know what is going on with the daily posts until today. The following is not an excuse for me not posting but an explanation of why I have not done so. My fibromyalgia flare has been so bad since last week that I could even wear anything but a very loose fitting robe. Anything that touched my body in anyway sent me into tears.  I also have to deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder, Clinic depression, and arthritis though out my body. I fight them all the best I can but some days or serval days some or all of them catch up to me. Which is what happened starting last Friday. It is just starting to taper off so I hope to be back to catch up birthday horoscopes and do regular daily posting again sometime this week on WOTC. Plus go back to posting on Coven Life more often. It has taken me almost an hour to get this typed and to find information of the fore mentioned medical problems. I am sure I am not the only one out here in cycberland having to deal with with some or all of these problems. I am on medication for the fibromyalgia, Clinical Depression, and Anxiety attacks. I use White Willow Bark and Passionflower tea for the athirst.

Thank you for bearing with my absence once again, your support and patience as I deal with this awful auto-immune disease and other medical problems!!! May you all be blessed with good health, love, harmony, and laughter. I will be back as soon as I can comfortably type.

January 14 Moon Goddess’ Current Phase 

Today Moon will be in a Waxing Crescent Phase. A Waxing Crescent is the first Phase after the New Moon and is a great time to see the features of the moon’s surface. During this phase the Moon can be seen in the wester sky after the sun dips below the horizon at sunset. The moon is close to the sun in the sky and mostly dark except for the right edge of the moon which becomes brighter as the days get closer to the next phase which is a First Quarter with a 50% illumination.

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

Today’s Waxing Crescent Phase

The Waxing Crescent on January 14 has an illumination of 2%. 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 January 14 the Moon is 1.37 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.

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

January 13 Moon Goddess’ Current Phase

Today the Moon will be in a New Moon phase. During this phase the Moon is too close to the sun in the sky to be visible. The moon rises and sets with the sun and is not present in the night sky. Because of this the night sky is darker and an excellent time to view other celestial objects. Like the Full Moon, a New Moon happens at a very specific time when the sun and moon have the same ecliptic longitude and it can be measured down to the second it occurs.

The New Moon on January 13 has an illumination of 0%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day.

January 12 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.

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…
