TGIF! Thank The Goddess It’s Friday! Finally! Yes, It’s Friday, LOL!

Days Of The Week Comments
Hmm, do we sound a little excited it is Friday? We found out it is going to warm up this weekend and we might actually have a chance at unthawing for a minute or two, lol! But seriously, we always try to keep you informed of internet issues that might effect you. So this is our public announcement for the week…….

Today on NBC it was reported that Yahoo’s email accounts had been hacked into. According to the News reports they hacked several millions of Yahoo emails. They were advising if you had an account to change your password immediately. To make sure you are at a legit Yahoo account, look for the confirmation box right under your password. You know the little box with the screwed up letters and numbers. As many times as I have to do them, I am surprised they haven’t thought I was a computer.  Back to the story, we have a Yahoo account and it doesn’t seem to have been effected. To be on the safe side,  I am planning on changing the password. If you have a Yahoo account, please check it when you have time today. And thus ends our PA for January 31st!

I hope everyone has a very fantastic Friday and a beautiful and blessed weekend,

Luv & Hugs,

Lady A

Wishing You A Very Blessed Wednesday Morn, my dear family!

Good Morning Images
Sorry I am running late but I had a few items I had to take care of. I really started out this morning on the computer at 9:00, can you believe that? Now it is after 11:00 and I finally made it. My life’s story, I will be late to my own funeral, lol!

Well the government shut down has finally hit home. I said the other day I didn’t want to mix religion and the government. But the government has politely interfered with our happy little lives. I know we aren’t the only ones and I apologize for what I am getting ready to do. I really don’t have any other choice though. I have called all the resources we have for getting funds when we are running low. Everyone of them depends on the government (which some I didn’t know they did) and they have no money. Right now, I am sitting and staring at a light bill that has to be paid and we have no money either.

The raffle this month has been a flop. I figure that is because of the government. We have had two individuals sign up for it and I appreciate you both so much. But till I can get a store going, yes a store. WordPress has fixed it were we can actually have a store on here now. Yahoo, Way to Go, WordPress! But if the government don’t get it act together, we won’t sell anything. See I am in a lovely mood today. A real optimist, ha!

So my last hope is turning to my family on the net. I hate like heck to but I have too. If the power doesn’t stay on, there is no daily WOTC. So if you could please spare a dime or two, we would be most grateful. You have never let us down in the past and I am hoping that is true this time. Like I said I hate to ask but you all are my last resort. Please help us out, any amount will be great appreciate.

Thank you so much,

Lady A & The WOTC

The Nine Principles of the Goddess

il_fullxfull_238700848

 

The Nine Principles of the Goddess

1. I acknowledge that there is one Goddess in essence, Creatrix of all existences; Her forms are infinite, She manifests Herself in our love, and we are all Her lovers.

2. Treat all beings with reciprocity, for the Goddess lives in them as well as in us.

3. Tolerate other religions and do not compel others to join the circle of the Goddess: the Goddess will draw those to Her who are ready and hear Her call.

4. Worship Her by restoring balance to Her planet.

5. Eat mostly grains, vegetables and fruits, so that there will be enough food for all; when you eat thank the Goddess, the provider of all energy. It is not forbidden to eat animal flesh in moderation, but when you do so you must thank the animal that you eat as well.

6. In the circle of the Goddess create consensus while respecting diversity of opinion. On the path of the Goddess there are many paths.

7. In your home create a sacred space for the Goddess to please Her. Meditate on the Goddess three times a day, at rising, at noon and at sundown.

8. Sexuality is Her sacrament; enjoy this gift and bless those who you share it with love and affection. Remember that overcoming jealousy is the cause of cessation of the cycle of rebirth.

9. Announce the religion of the Goddess to the world through good works, honest words and selfless acts of beauty and love.

To set out on the path of the Goddess, you need only recite the first principle three times, and say three times ‘blessed be’. The Goddess will enter your heart and you will feel her love, and when that happens you are in the circle of the Goddess.

Your Animal Spirit for Aug. 22nd is Bat

Your Animal Spirit for Today
    August 22, 2013

Bat

Bat’s internal radar is exceptionally attuned—is yours? Because Bat medicine is the medicine of transformation, he is asking you to re-examine your life to determine (using all of your senses) what is worth keeping and what needs to be discarded. For every death there is a rebirth and Bat is here to help you decide what goes and what stays.

It’s just one more week until Sacred Harvest Festival, August 6-12; http://harmonytribe.org/content/sacred-harvest-festival-2012-our-fifteenth-year

At Sacred Harvest Festival in 2008, I participated in a ritual known as The Sacred Hunt. It is a powerful and transformational ritual. I hunted for community. When I returned from the festival, I began developing the community Calendar at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TwinCitiesPagans/

In order to promote the Yahoo group, I began putting out this newsletter. My goal was never to publish a newsletter, but rather to promote the Yahoo group, but one thing led to another, and here we are four years later, and the newsletter is still going. Putting out the newsletter just keeps getting to be more and more of a hassle, so after Yule of this year, I am stopping. I will continue updating the Yahoo group, but I will no longer be publishing this newsletter.

I accept that many people rely on this newsletter to stay informed, but 667 of you are already staying informed as members of the Yahoo group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TwinCitiesPagans/

Extreme Yang Spell

Extreme Yang Spell

In traditional Chinese belief, what we call demons may actually be a manifestation of excessive yin energy. This can be neutralized by applying the opposing force: extremely potent yang energy. The following serve as demon/yin repellants:

Firecrackers

Mirrors

The crowing of a rooster

Swords

Reading sacred texts and philosophy books is also believed to send malevolent spirits on their merry way because these create order, in which demons(which crave chaos) cannot thrive.

In Our Prayers, The High School Shooting Victims in Ohio

I am sure everyone has heard of the tragedy that occurred in the high school in Chardon, Ohio. I have just recently read on Yahoo another one of the shooting victims have been declared brain-dead. I am a mother and I cannot bear to think about one of my children passing. My heart breaks for these parents. Please light a candle and say a prayer for all of those effected by this tragic event.

 

Oh, Mighty Goddess, I humbly pray for the shooting victims
 at Chardon High School, but especially for those who have
already passed. Hold them near to you until they are ready
to be reborn again from your womb.
 
Oh Mighty God, please grant these children an easy rebirth
and that we never forget all that they were to us in this
world. Bring them to the everlasting joy of the Summerland.
 
So Mote It Be
 
 

 

Crone Mother, wise woman, you have give us all
sorts of herbs, barks, flowers, and roots that can
heal us. Please grant the physicians the knowledge
and wisdom to best use your energies to heal this
world and especially the shooting victims of
Chardon High School.
 
Dear Father, healing physician, please send
forth your healing energies to these students.
Help their wounds start to heal and with
Your mighty compassion help them through
this horrible tragedy.
 
Thank you for your endless compassion.
So Mote It Be.
 

Good Tuesday to You & Yours, my dear friends!

Days Of The Week Comments
Ah, if only there could be peace in the world, even for just one day. Wishful thinking of a dreamy witch, for sure. I just got thru reading the News on MSN. I also read the headlines on Yahoo. My husband told me that to really get a grasp on the world around us, read MSN for a day. Well I did and now I am totally depressed, NOT! But the world doesn’t really have any good News in it at all. 

 I have always had this illusion that on the internet, you could go, see and do what you wanted too. Apparently if our Legislature leaders have it their way that won’t happen anymore. The way I understand it, is that they want to have sites they consider bad and unappropriate, “black listed.” These sites would be blocked from public viewing. Even sites that you and I consider harmless. I understand the little site of Wikipedia, called “wiki-pedia” was one that they were going to “black-list.” Wikipedia is going to protest by having a total black out date set for the 18th of this month. I believe that date’s right, I just scanned through real quick to see if what I heard was right. I let my mind run wild on certain subjects, especially ones like this. The government is going to try to tell us where we can go on the internet, what we can read, what’s next. Basically the government is going to tell us what they believe is appropriate for us. Hmm, this takes me back to earlier times in our very own history. When a certain Religion told everyone which Religion was appropriate and which ones wasn’t. AND WE WEREN’T THE APPROPRIATE ONE! Remember, I do, very clearly. If you haven’t checked and seen what your government is trying to do now, go check out the News on MSN. Go to the Politics section and read down. See what you think. If you think like me, get that email addresses to your Senators and Congressmen. Let them know, that this is still America and we want to keep our Goddess’ given RIGHTS!  

I am sorry. I don’t generally get into Politics but this time things are going to far. It has to be stopped before it ever gets started. Because like anything else given an inch, they will take a mile.  

Now On With The Magick……

Spellcrafting for Tuesday

  

CANDLE JUSTICE SPELL

First, you must recite the opening chant:

” I move outside the limits of time to work my spell
The dragons help me weave the universal energy
The things that now exist become what I desire
The tides of Magic answer unto me”

Then, you need a tarot deck. Cards needed: Justice, The World, and nine of cups
Candles needed: gray, orange, indigo, purple, black, and gold.

Arrange the cards IN ORDER, left to right: Justice, The World, and then 9 of cups.

Arrange the candles below the cards IN THIS ORDER: gray, orange, indigo, purple, black and gold. Light the candles and after clearing your mind, say:

“Gray mists to hide what I must do.
Orange light to change my luck and give me power.
Indigo strength to stop gossip and lies.
Purple power to break bad luck and drive away evil.
Great black walls to protect me from my enemies.
Sun-gold beams to give me fortune and success.
I stand surrounded by these powerful lights.
I ask the dragon’s help to succeed in my case.”

Concentrate a few moments on the cards and your objective.
After this you must say the closing chant:

“My thanks to the dragons, great and small, who came to answer my call,
We wove the Magic, wild and free, And as I will, so shall it be.”

Place the candles in a safe place so they will not catch anything on fire,
such as a sink or even in the bath tub, and allow them to burn themselves out.

 
Magickal Graphics

While I am waiting for the graphics to load…..

I know you have heard me mention that in my spare time, I surf the net for graphics. Well, I did a search on Yahoo for Yule graphics. Up popped the search and I got to looking at the graphics. I ran across this one set of graphics that looked really, really familiar. But of course, it hasn’t hit dummy where she has seen these graphics before. So I click on the graphics because “I really liked them,” lol! When I got to the page where the graphic was displayed, the site/blog is showed but it is shadowed. I just glanced down at the title and would you believe it still didn’t dawn on me. How dumb is that? So I enlarged the graphic and then popped back to the smaller one. When I popped back to the smaller one, I liked to have fallen out in the floor. Because I couldn’t believe it and I was such a dumb butt, lol! My curiosity got the best of me, so I hit the search the web button for graphics. Lo and behold! I didn’t have no problem seeing what blog was ranked second, IT WAS US!!!!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It is all of you that got this blog ranked second. It is all the WOTC’s wonderful friends and followers! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for making this such a fantastic and unbelievable year for us. I have said it a million times and it is so true, “We would be nothing without you, our dear friends.”

 

Now a word about today’s postings……..When I was doing my research, I ran across several countries’ different traditions of celebrating the Winter Solstice. During the post today, I was going to post the countries and their traditions. So of them are out there, but I think you will enjoy it.

Blessed Winter Solstice!
