A Little Humor – Tide With Bleach (Married Ladies Rejoice, lmao!)

Tide With Bleach

Dear Tide:

I’m writing to say what an excellent product you have! I’ve used it since the beginning of my married life, when my Mom told me it was the best. Now that I am older and going through menopause, I find it even better! In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse.

My unfeeling and uncaring husband started to berate me about how clumsy I was and generally started becoming a pain in the neck. One thing led to another and I ended up with a lot of his blood on my white blouse. I tried to get the stain out using a bargain detergent, but it just wouldn’t come out. After a quick trip to the supermarket, I purchased a bottle of liquid Tide with bleach alternative, and to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out! In fact, the stains came out so well, that when the detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative and then my attorney called and said that I would no longer be considered a suspect in the disappearance of my husband, it was quite a relief.

I thank you, once again, for having such a great product. Well, gotta go. I have to write a letter to the Hefty bag people…

The Witches Magick for November 8th: Heal Old Wounds & Make A Fresh Start


Perform on an incoming tide, when the moon’s new hold a silver coin,
2 seashells, and Vervain leaves in your hand and hold it towards the sea and
ask for the moon’s blessing.
Then drink a toast to the sea and moon. Focus on your purpose and throw 1 shell as far as you can into the ocean (while chanting your wish). With the other, write your wish and your name in the sand below the tide mark.
Wrap the shell and coin in the Vervain leaves and count seven waves hitting the shore, and bury it in the middle of your message.
As you wait for the tide, chant:
“Tide and time receive my wish
And grant me new beginnings”

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.
