Spell for Today – 3 To have Someone Call You Spells


To Have Someone Call You

Put a glass of water in the middle of your altar. Pour two or three teaspoons of salt into your dominant hand, and use it to make 3 equal armed crosses over the glass allowing some salt to fall into the water while doing this chant:

Hear me, call me get in touch
We need to talk please hurry rush

Expect to hear from the person by the time the water evaporates.



Another Spell To Have Someone Call You

Firmly push a needle into the center of a yellow un-anointed candle until the eye is flush with the candle. Inscribe the persons name onto the candle using your athame or a pin, light the wick. The person will usually call before the candle burns halfway down.



The Phone Charm

Take a piece of fine writing paper, inscribe the person’s name twice in a circle to make the ends meet. As you do this concentrate on their face and your desire for them to call you, then while still concentrating put a needle through the circle then place the charm by the phone. In either 5 minutes or 5 days your call will come, depending on how much energy you put into it!

Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence for Wednesday

From flyingthehedge.com

This day of the week gets its name from Woden’s Day, an Old English name. It is a direct translation of the Latin term mercurri dies, “day of Mercury.” When they translated the day, they changed to god Mercury to a local god, Woden, so people would understand. This is a great day to work on communications, thought, wisdom, self-expression, and the arts. Also a good day for divination.
Color: Purple, orange
Planet: Mercury
Deities: Odin, Woden, Hermes, Mercury, Athena, Lugh
Crystals: Adventuine, agate
Herbs: Aspen, lilies, lavender, fern
Associations: Business, communication, debt, the arts, transportation, fortune, chance, creativity

From learnreligions.com

Wednesday is named for Woden himself, although the Romans called it dies Mercurii. This is a day associated with the color purple, the planet Mercury, and the metal quicksilver—which is also called mercury. See a pattern here?

When it comes to deities… yes, Mercury! However, there are a few other gods associated with Wednesday, including Odin and Hermes, Athena, and Lugh. Gemstones like adventurine and agate come in handy as well, as do plants such as aspen trees, lilies, lavender, and even ferns.

Business and job-related issues, communication, loss and debt, traveling, and journeys are all tied into Wednesday. This is a good day to do a working to open up lines of communication—especially if your actions are preventing you from being an effective speaker or listener. Go someplace new or return to an old favorite stomping ground, step up your game, and settle up your accounts.

Goddess Of The Day – Hexe


Saint Hildegard Dies


Themes: Health, Banishing:Magic

Symbols: Healing Herbs and Charms


About Hexe: This ancient Germanic witch’s goddess rules over health, banishing curses and teaching

people the effective use of spells, charms and other mystical procedure for improving well being, Thus

we come by the old phrase “hex doctor”.


To Do Today: Living in the 1100’s St Hildegard was a renowned Benedictine nun living in Bingen and

ministering to people with herbal preparations received in visions. Many of these had magical overtone,

perhaps guided by Hexe’s influence. In any case, today’s theme is learning the art of weaving, “Hexes”

for physical, mental and spiritual health.


On the physical level take a natural object like a cut potato and rub it against an inflicted area. Bury the

potato to “bury” the malady and decompose it. Or carry a jet stone to absorb the problem, then cleanse

the rock in saltwater to wash the bas energy away. For mental well being, enjoy a soothing cup of mint

tea stirred countercockwise so tensions and negativity will wane. Or, carry a flourite stone with you

throughout the day to strengthen your mental powers. For spiritual health, sprinkle nutmeg-laden water

clockwise throughout your aura to empower your physic self. Or, carry a lapis or amethyst stone to draw

goddess centered thinking and action into your day.

Goddess of the Day – Aphrodite


Greek goddess of love and beauty

By deTraci Regula, About.com Guide


From ‘The Dictionary of Classical Antiquities’

Aphrodite’s Appearance:Aphrodite is a gorgeous, perfect, eternally young woman with a beautiful body.Aphrodite’s Symbol or Attribute:Her Girdle, which has magical powers to compel love.

Strengths:Potent sexual attractiveness, dazzling beauty.

Weaknesses:A bit stuck on herself, but with a perfect face and body, who can blame her?

Aphrodite’s Parents: One genealogy gives her parents as Zeus, King of the Gods, and Dione, an early earth/mother goddess. More commonly, she was believed to be born of the foam in the sea which bubbled around the severed member of Ouranos when Kronos slew him.

Aphrodite’s Birthplace: Rising from the foam off of the islands of Cyprus or Kythira. Milos, where the famed Venus de Milo was found, is also associated with her in modern times.

Aprhodite’s Husband:Hephaestus, the lame smith-god. Also associated with Ares, god of War.

Children: Eros, a Cupid-like figure.

Some Major Temple Sites of Aphrodite: Kythira, an island she visited; Cyprus.

Basic Story: Aphrodite rises from the foam of the waves of the sea, enchanting anyone who sees her and inciting feelings of love and lust wherever she goes. She is a contender in the story of the Golden Apples, when Paris chooses her as the fairest of the three goddesses (the others were Hera and Athena) and Aphrodite decides to “reward” him for giving her the Golden Apple (the prototype of most modern awards) by giving him the love of Helen of Troy, something of a mixed blessing that led to the Trojan War.

Interesting Fact: The island of Cyprus has many places believed to have been enjoyed by Aphrodite when she was on earth. Recently, the Cypriots have revived a tourist-friendly version of some of Aphrodite’s festivals at the town of Paphos.

Tarot Cards

Today there will only be the GENERAL Tarot Card because I will be working. Tomorrow I Will return with all four of the Tarot Card Readings.

Today’s Tarot Card Reading come from The English Magic Tarot by Rex Van Ryn, Steve Dooley and Andy Letcher Copyright 2015 (The unfamiliar terms used with this deck is in England’s English)


The Star – Major Arcana

Description: Sir Isaac Newton stands amidst the heavens, He holds a prism that splits starlight into a rainbow. Planets wheel about him.

Interpretation: The Star representsa hope. We have always looked to the heavens for portents and omens, the Star in the East. Astrologers the world over have sought to understand the influence of the planets on our mundane lives. Renaissance natural magic consisted largely of the attempt to draw down benign astral influences from the heavenly spheres.

We now know what our ancestors did not; that starlight has travelled countless light-years to get here. To see starlight is to see back into the endless depths of the ancient past. Moreover, every element from the periodic table that makes up the world around us was forged in a star. We are quite literally stardust. I find all of this beautiful, mysterious, and profoundly hopeful. No wonder that magical consciousness, the statement fall into when we do magic, is sometimes called starlight consciousness.

Our card shows Sir Isaac Newton, the great English physicist, splitting light with his famous prisms. His fame as a scientist now obscures the that he spent much of his life studying alchemy. So although he’s here doing science, splitting the world into it’s constituent parts, he’s also reaching out to try and understand the greater mysteries. He seems on the Brinkman knowing. His body is filled with hope.

Reading: The atar suggests you’ve everybreason to feel quite hopeful. Perhaps the greater mysteries lie within your grasp. If reversed,then you may well have a done hope or fallen into a state of despair. Allow yourself to be touched by starlight, literly or metaphorically. It will remind you to wonder.


From The Rune Site


Sound: “b”
Stands for: Birch Tree (or Birch Twig)
Color: White (Blue)
Casting meaning: Like the birch tree coming to life from a seed planted in the earth, Berkana represents a new beginning and is also a powerful birth rune.

Witches’ Rune

From summergoddess.wordpress.com


The Romance Rune suggests a great desire surfacing in your life or becoming infatuated with a person different from the people you normally associate with.

Turning up this stone indicates being drawn into situations or affairs that defy reason or being drawn away by forces outside of your control.

This stone carries with it forces that drive us beyond our usual good sense.

It indicates good luck in the short term as it denoted getting fired up by daring new plans and options.

It can also indicate becoming obsessed about an idea.


From learnreligions.com


N is for Nion, sometimes called Nuin, which is connected to the Ash tree. Ash is one of three trees which were sacred to the Druids (Ash, Oak and Thorn), and connects the inner self to the outer worlds. This is a symbol of connections and creativity, and transitions between the worlds.

In Norse legend, Yggdrasil, the World Tree, is an Ash. Its roots grew down far into the Underworld, and its branches reached all the way up into the heavens. Odin hung himself from the tree for nine days as a sacrifice. Ash also features prominently in the Irish myth cycles, and is often depicted growing beside a well or pool of wisdom.

Nion Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: Remember that for every action, there is a consequence, and these effect not only ourselves but others as well. What we do in our life will carry into the future and possibly even beyond. Every one of our words and deeds has some sort of impact.

Magical Aspects: The Universe is like a giant web. Strands bind us all together, either closely or at a distance. We are all connected in one way or another, so it is important to find harmony between the spiritual realm and the physical, and between all living beings. Endeavor to live a spiritual life that considers the needs of the natural world around you.


March 22, 2023 Birthday Horoscope

May the next year of your life be more positive than the past year! 

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope from sunsigns.org

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS March 22, you are a fun loving person that never meets a stranger. Your zodiac sign is Aries and you are impulsive, vibrant, and passionate. Although you are a bit high strung, you have a way to bring people together.

Yes, people are drawn to you, Aries because you know how to make a person feel special. Your birthday characteristics show you to be intuitive and you know what to say in certain situations to change people’s attitudes and this is what makes those born on this day special.

The negative side of 22 March birthday personality trait is that you can be an awesome team leader but not a team player. Most of the time, you have your own ideas and have trouble following directions.

This is not good for those of you born on March 22. It can cause conflicts between you and your friends or family, co-workers and your boss.

Mainly, what you desire is security across the board but you cannot seem to get those relationships right. With friends, you can be a bit wishy-washy. Today, you can be friends but tomorrow, you may not be!

What in the world is happening, Aries? You cannot treat people as if they are dolls. You cannot take them off the shelf when it is convenient for you. Friendships just do not work that way. Work on this, as you would not want it done to you.

The 22 March birthday horoscope predicts that as an Aries, you are subject to romantic relationships that give you security. You like to be with someone who mirrors your aspirations.

Someone who can keep your ego on an even keel but this is hard to do, Aries. You love the attention and those like you, get their share and it can sometimes, make you jealous. Oh, you are so confusing.

If today is your birthday, you are a workaholic and risk-taker. You need to concentrate on professions that will distinguish yourself as an activist. You have high expectations and need to make calculated efforts to ensure success with unlimited potential.

Arians, take it one step at a time… crossing off each goal as they are completed. You see the big picture and strive to be financially and personally content with your life. You can excel at anything you do when it comes to your profession.
As the March 22nd birthday astrology predicts, you have positive energy but can be quite moody. Aries people are likely to have health problems relating to the nerves or will suffer with sinus issues, skin rashes, and gum disease.

Some of you will be accident prone leading to head injuries. Did you know that some say that the mole or birthmark on your face has a certain meaning? Most of you born on this day will have this mark.

Arians love company as you bring out the best in people. You are fun to be around. While this is true, you have a tendency to take friendships for granted. One day you guys are cool and the next, you are not speaking.

Aries zodiac birthday March 22nd, have trouble following. You cannot take orders and have a hard time following the script. You can be moody but you will make a great leader.

A Thought for Today

I call to the Witches,

Both near and far.

No need to name you,

You know who you are.

Come Dane with me,

By the firelight,

and give praise to the Goddess,

this full moon night.

It doesn’t matter where you are.

Send your soul,

it travels far.

I’ll wait for you,

as the sun goes to rest,

tonight will be truly blessed.

Brothers, Sisters, dance with me.

As I will it,

So more it be.
