What if the universe had no beginning?


Reports of the death of the Big Bang have been greatly exaggerated. Big Bang theory is alive and well. At the same time, our universe may not have a beginning or end.

Most of us understand the Big Bang as the idea that our entire universe came from a single point, what astrophysicists call a “singularity.” But we might not need a singularity to have a Big Bang, according to a new study. Image via mondolithic.com
Are you seeing the stories this week suggesting that the Big Bang didn’t happen? According to astrophysicist Brian Koberlein – a great science communicator at Rochester Institute of Technology with a popular page on G+ – that’s not quite what the new research (published in early February 2015 Physics Letters B, has suggested. The new study isn’t suggesting there was no Big Bang, Koberlein says. It’s suggesting that the Big Bang did not start with a singularity – a point in space-time when matter is infinitely dense, as at the center of a black hole. How can this be? Koberlein explains on his website:

The catch is that by eliminating the singularity, the model predicts that the universe had no beginning. It existed forever as a kind of quantum potential before ‘collapsing’ into the hot dense state we call the Big Bang. Unfortunately many articles confuse ‘no singularity’ with ‘no big bang.’

The new model – in which our universe has no beginning and no end – comes from Ahmed Farag Ali at Benha University in Egypt and coauthor Saurya Das at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada. Their paper looks at a result derived from Einstein’s theory of general relativity known as the Raychaudhuri equation. Koberlein says:

Basically his equation describes how a volume of matter changes over time, so its a great way of finding where physical singularities exist in your model. But rather than using the classical Raychaudhuri equation, the authors use a variation with a few quantum tweaks. This approach is often called semi-classical …

The upshot is that this work eliminates the need for an initial singularity of the Big Bang. That is, it eliminates the need for a single infinitely dense point from which our universe sprang some 13.8 billion years ago. The Big Bang itself, however, can still have happened, according to this model. Koberlein says:

The Big Bang is often presented as some kind of explosion from an initial point, but actually the Big Bang model simply posits that the universe was extremely hot and dense when the universe was young. The model makes certain predictions, such as the existence of a thermal cosmic background, that the universe is expanding, the abundance of elements, etc. All of these have matched observation with great precision. The Big Bang is a robust scientific theory that isn’t going away, and this new paper does nothing to question its legitimacy.

One appealing feature of the new paper is that it also predicts a cosmological constant, a concept originally introduced by Albert Einstein in 1917. Einstein added a cosmological constant to his theory of general relativity keep the universe static, rather than expanding, but he later abandoned the concept as his “greatest blunder” after Edwin Hubble’s 1929 discovery that all galaxies outside our Local Group are moving away from each other. The idea of a cosmological constant was discarded for some decades, but, since the 1990s, developments in cosmology have revived the idea that we need one to explain the universe as we observe it. In Ali and Das’ new model, a cosmological constant provides a proposed mechanism for the mysterious dark energy known to pervade space and cause an observed acceleration in the expansion of the universe.

So Big Bang theory is alive and well. And, Koberlein says:

While this is an interesting model, it should be noted that it’s very basic. More of a proof of concept than anything else. It should also be noted that replacing the Big Bang singularity with an eternal history isn’t a new idea. Many inflation models, for example, make similar predictions.

Still, it’ll be interesting to see if this model ignites interest among cosmologists and ultimately contributes to altering our thinking about a Big Bang singularity, which has been a fact of most of our lives since we were born. Big ideas like this do change, and it’ll be fun to see if this one does!

Blyssful Freya the 13th Day Pagans!

Superstitions & Magick

A coven has 12 members and the 13th member is the High Priestess (or Priest).

The number thirteen is sacred to witches because we honor the Moon, and the Moon cycles around 13 times in one year.

The menstrual cycle, following the Moon, also comes around 13 times a year. Because we worship life and the Great Mother, this creative cycle of women is sacred.

The number 13 also shows Christian’s ancient matriarchal roots. Why 12 apostles? There’s nothing inherently sacred about the number 12. But with Jesus, the number is complete, at 13. (cool, huh?)

the number 13 is reflected on the U.S. $1 bill — 13 levels in the pyramid, 13 stars, 13 arrows, 13 stripes, 13 leaves, and 13 olives. There were also the original 13 colonies, too.

Thirteen was also once associated with the Epiphany by mainstream Christians, the Christ child having received the Magi on his thirteenth day of life.

13 is one past 12, the dozen, almost universally regarded as a perfect number, signifying harmony and all good things. Thirteen, by contrast, is a number of transgression, taking matters one step too far, turning harmony into discord. It is also considered in the Bible to be the number of rebellion.

13 is a number that signifies women and the Goddess. Friday is associated with Venus, the female Goddess and Goddess of Love making Friday the 13th a very powerful day for all women.

In Tarot decks, the 13th card of the Major Arcana is Death. While Death is rarely interpreted literally, it is possible that this furthered the perception of 13 as an unlucky number. Death is actually only a symbol for CHANGE.

13 was a number central to certain traditions of sacred geometry, because it reflected a pattern which could be seen to exist in man, nature, and the heavens. For instance, there are 13 major joints in your body.

The 13th rune – called “Eiwaz” –  represents the balance point between light and dark, the creative force and the destructive force, or the heavens and the Underworld. It too is Alpha and Omega at the same time. It signifies death, but it also signifies eternal life.

The sacred cord of Druids has thirteen segments. The Sumerians used a zodiac including 13 constellations and 26 main stars. The thirteen gates of the Human body of the woman: 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 nostrils, the mouth, 2 breasts, the navel, the anus, the urethra and the vagina. The card deck includes 13 hearts, 13 spades, 13 squares, 13 clubs. The Jewish sage Moses Maimonides established 13 principles of the Jewish faith. The Chinese abacus consists of 13 columns of beads.

 The ancient Chinese regarded the number 13 as lucky. The ancient Egyptians also thought 13 brought good luck.

Lucky Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th occurs when the thirteenth day of a month falls on a Friday, which superstition holds to be a day of bad luck. In the Gregorian calendar, this day occurs at least once, but at most three times a year. Any month's 13th day will fall on a Friday if the month starts on a Sunday.

There are alot of people that are superstitious about Friday the 13th. However not many have a full understanding of the significance of this day. It has been suggested that Friday has been considered an unlucky day because, according to Christian scripture and tradition, Jesus was crucified on a Friday.

The actual origin of the superstition, though, appears also to be a tale in Norse mythology. Friday is named for Frigga, the free-spirited goddess of love and fertility. When Norse and Germanic tribes converted to Christianity, Frigga was banished in shame to a mountaintop and labeled a witch. It was believed that every Friday, the spiteful goddess convened a meeting with eleven other witches, plus the devil — a gathering of thirteen — and plotted ill turns of fate for the coming week. 

For many centuries in Scandinavia, Friday was known as "Witches' Sabbath." with Friday the 13th having an even deeper more sinister significance.

In fact Friday the 13th can be a very lucky day. Friday is also associated with Venus, the Roman Goddess of love, beauty and fertility and Friday is viewed by many pagans as the best day to perform any magick relating to Venus' areas of expertise: love, fertility and beauty. 

The number 13 has been a magical number since the the Ancient Egyptians first depicted the Ladder to Eternal Life. They believed that there were twelve steps on the ladder to eternal life and knowledge and to take the thirteenth step meant going through death into everlasting life. Thirteen, for the Egyptians, was associated with immortality. 

The number 13 in the Coperos religion (small culture in brazil) is like a God number. All coperos must know that this number can save the humankind. In Sikhism, the number 13 is considered a special number since 13 is tera in Punjabi, which also means "yours" (as in, "I am yours, O Lord").

There are other significances of the number 13; There are thirteen Moon cycles in a year, the ancient Lunar calendar had 13 months, a traditional coven has 13 members, Romans require 13 guests be present at weddings, in the Hebrew faith age 13 is considered to be an adult, there are 13 players on a rubgy team and there are 13 cards of each suit in a deck of cards.

~*Your Daily Fortunes for Thursday February 12, 2015*~

Tarot~The High Priestess

Traditionally called the High Priestess, this major arcana, or trump, card represents human wisdom. She can be viewed as a kind of female Pope, the ancient Egyptian Priestess of Isis, the even older snake and bird Goddesses, the Greek Goddess Persephone, or the Eve of Genesis before the Fall. 

For the accused heretics who were burnt at the stake for revering her in the 14th and 15th century, she symbolized the prophecy of the return of the Holy Spirit, which was perceived as the female aspect of the Holy Trinity. 

In the sequence of cards in the major arcana, the High Priestess appears as soon as the Fool decides he wants to develop his innate powers, making a move toward becoming a Magus. The High Priestess is his first teacher, representing the Inner Life and the method for contacting it, as well as the contemplative study of Nature and the Holy Mysteries.

Witches Oracle~21: Time

This sign, the triskele, represents the constant of it whether be past, present, or future.
The meaning here is you need to look at the big picture and not just in the present moment. So sit back and take a birds-eye view because time cuts both ways, and if you are stuck just in the present then you are just waiting for your future not appreciating how you got there ans where you were before. Basically you are not appreciating the journey. Magick does not work unless it is direct somewhere, so if you aim for nothing that is just what your going to get!

Horoscopes~

Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Naturally, you might wish previous commitments weren't weighing you down today, but there's no escape from fulfilling your obligations. The optimistic Sagittarius Moon encourages you to dream larger than life, but you still could appear irresponsible to someone else who thinks you should focus on the tasks at hand. Don't push your luck. You could get all you want and more if you eliminate the excess noise and take care of business. Channeling your enthusiasm into your work is your ticket to success.

Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
Although you're distracted with big ideas about your future, it's critical to rein in your unrealistic fantasies and be as practical as possible today. It's tempting to ride your adrenaline rush and grab an opportunity that seems to offer big rewards in return. But things look better than they actually are, so it's sensible to set aside your hopes for immediate gratification and work toward improving your stability in the present moment. A carefully made choice now will ensure a happier outcome later.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
You're not looking forward to buckling down and doing exactly what's expected of you today, yet this isn't an ideal time to reveal your true feelings by rebelling against authority. You may attempt to sidestep an unpleasant activity now, but you could just create additional problems if you run out on your obligations. Even if others tempt you with an intriguing invitation, save the fun and games for another day and hold up your end of the bargain. You might be surprised by the sense of pride you feel when you look back at your accomplishments.

Cancer Horoscope (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You may resist the idea of working closely with someone today, but you could be persuaded to venture out of your safety zone no matter what kind of defensive tactics you employ. Instead of jumping through hoops to set up unnecessary roadblocks, soften your self-protective posture and be open to what others have to offer. It's more useful to stay connected with your feelings now than to deny your emotions just because they make you feel insecure. The discomforts of vulnerability are outweighed by the advantages of collaboration.

Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Your generosity of spirit is appreciated by those who come into contact with you today because your positive attitude can be quite contagious. However, there may be an emotionally charged agenda that creates disagreement among friends and coworkers. Rather than declaring your position and then fighting for it, avoid becoming too attached to any one outcome. Go ahead and make a choice if you must, but be willing to meet others halfway. Common ground is built on mutual respect.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You may have a highly productive day in store, providing you can steer clear of conflicts with authorities. Unfortunately, you could inadvertently provoke a power struggle by doing something your own way. You should be able to minimize stress now if you remain sincere in your intentions and follow through to the best of your abilities. Thankfully, there's no need to prove your proficiency today; lessen the pressure by balancing your work with a little bit of lighthearted fun.

Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You might have assumed that you were directing the show today, but it turns out that you're not the one calling the shots. You may run into someone who thinks he's the boss, yet it's difficult to uncover the whole story about who is in charge. Instead of putting up a fight, just go with the flow while the drama unfolds. Be a careful observer of the dynamics behind the scenes but don't try to make any changes just yet. Once the bigger picture becomes clear, you will intuitively know what to do next.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You thought you could finish everything that's expected of you, but your confidence may begin to wane as the day wears on. Fortunately, you can still come through with the goods today because you are motivated by the fact that everyone is depending on you. If necessary, you know how to push your limits to meet your deadlines. Don't be afraid to demonstrate what you can do. However, nothing will be gained by judging anyone else too harshly just because you're the model of efficiency now. Don't waste time comparing anyone's level of productivity to yours when you could be celebrating your success, instead.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Maintaining your confidence is critical today because the Moon joins somber Saturn in your 1st House of Personality. You may experience delays or encounter unexpected obstacles, creating bouts of self-doubt. Thankfully, this conjunction is in exuberant Sagittarius, offering some balance if you're willing to eliminate superfluous activities. You're better off if there are fewer tasks on your to-do list now so you have more time for each item. Creating a realistic agenda for yourself enables you to show others the meaning of success.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You may have several impulsive moments today when you are all too eager to pursue a fleeting whim. However, don't let your desire for instant gratification hijack your day. Even if you want to do the right thing, you're also keeping your eyes peeled for a quick escape. Remember, your key planet Saturn presents you with an extra load of responsibility. Fortunately, concentrating on your commitment to excellence soothes your current wanderlust, enabling you to settle down and be more productive than you ever imagined.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You're willing to put in long hours and work hard because you want to be considered an integral part of the team. However, you might go out of your way to appear easygoing because you don't want anyone to know how seriously you take yourself now. Ironically, you could sabotage your success by trying too hard. Consciously relaxing just a bit may be enough to let your true nature shine through so others can see the real value of your contributions.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You are driven to demonstrate your competence at work today and go out of your way to fulfill any promises you made. Nevertheless, it's not easy to keep on task with so many planets drifting through your sign these days. You can find additional stability from your interactions with others, but you also need to express your dreams, too. Don't deny your creative and imaginative side. Thankfully, concentrating on your outer goals doesn't require you to ignore your inner world.

Today Healthy Herb~Thursday February 12th, 2015

Healthy Herb for Thursday February 12, 2015

Elder, Dwarf

For constipation, kidney and bladder problems.

Botanical: Sambucus Ebulus (LINN.) 
Family: N.O. Caprifoliaceae

Description
Medicinal Action and Uses
Cultivation
---Synonyms---Danewort. Walewort. Blood Hilder. 
(French) Hièble. 
(German) Attichwurzel. 
---Part Used---Leaves. 
---Habitat---This species is found less frequently in hedges, but inclines to waste places, not infrequently among rubbish and the ruined foundations of old buildings. Gerard speaks of the 'dwarf Elder' growing 'in untoiled places plentifully in the lane at Kilburne Abbey by London.' The celebrated natural historian of Selborne speaks of the Dwarf Elder as growing among the rubbish and ruined foundations of the Priory. Spots of equal interest with that of Selborne might be cited as favourite haunts of the Dwarf Elder. It grows profusely near Carisbrooke Castle, below the timeworn walls of Scarborough Castle, beside the old Roman Watling Street, where it is crossed by the footpath from Norton to Wilton, in Northamptonshire.
Its old names, Danewort and Walewort (wal-slaughter) are supposed to be traceable to an old belief that it sprang from the blood of slain Danes - it grows near Slaughterford in Wilts, that being the site of a great Danish battle. Another notion is that it was brought to England by the Danes and planted on the battlefields and graves of their slain countrymen. In Norfolk it still bears the name of Danewort and Blood Hilder (Blood Elder). In accounting for its English name, Sir J. E. Smith says: 'Our ancestors evinced a just hatred of their brutal enemies, the Danes, in supposing the nauseous, fetid and noxious plant before us to have sprung from their blood.'

The Dwarf Elder differs from the Common Elder in being a herbaceous plant seldom exceeding 3 feet in height and dying back to the ground every year, spreading by underground shoots from the creeping root.
---Description---In leaf, flower and subsequent berry it bears a close resemblance to the Common Elder tree; the stem, however, is not woody and the leaves are distinguished by having a stipule, or small leaf, at the base of the finely-toothed leaflets, which are more numerous than those of the Common Elder, usually seven in number, larger and narrower and sometimes lobed. The flowers are whiter than those of the Common Elder, the corollas splashed with crimson on the outside and have dark red anthers. They are in bloom in July and August, have a less aromatic smell and do not always bring their fruit, a reddishpurple berry, to perfect ripeness in this country. The berries are, however, often present among imported Continental dried elderberries, the species being much more common there than here. In France it is called Hièble, in Germany Attichwurzel.

---Medicinal Action and Uses---Expectorant, diuretic, diaphoretic, purgative.

The Dwarf Elder has more drastic therapeutic action than the Common Elder, and it is only the leaves, or very occasionally the berries, that are used medicinally. The leaves are probably more used in herbal practice than those of Sambucus nigra, and are ingredients in medicines for inflammation of both kidney and liver. The drug is said to be very efficacious in dropsy. Dwarf Elder Tea, which has been considered one of the best remedies for dropsy, is prepared from the dried roots, cut up fine or ground to powder; the drug was much used by Kneipp.

The root, which is white and fleshy, has a nauseous, bitter taste and a decoction from it is a drastic purgative. Culpepper states that the decoction cures the bites of mad dogs and adders. The root-juice has been employed to dye hair black.

The leaves, bruised and laid on boils and scalds, have a healing effect, and boiled in wine and made into a poultice were employed in France to resolve swellings and relieve contusions.

A rob made from the berries is actively purgative.

An oil extracted from the seeds has been used as an application to painful joints.

Mice and moles are said not to come near the leaves, and in Silesia there is a belief that it prevents some of the diseases of swine, being strewn in sties.

In the United States, the name of Dwarf Elder is given to an entirely different plant, viz. Aralia hispida (N.O. Araliaceae). In Homoeopathy, it is the American Dwarf Elder which is employed. There it is also called Bristly Sarsaparilla and Wild Elder. It is found growing in rocky places in North America.

The homoeopaths use a tincture from the fresh, root and a fluid extract is also prepared from it. It has sudorific, diuretic and alterative properties and is regarded as very valuable in dropsy, gravel and in suppression of urine. It is particularly recommended as a diuretic in dropsy, being more acceptable to the stomach than other remedies of the same class.

The 'Prickly Elder' of America is a closely related species, A. spinosa, also known as False Prickly Ash (the real Prickly Ash being Xanthoxylum Americanum), which contains a glucoside named Aralin. A decoction of the plant is used for the same purposes as Sarsaparilla.

The 'Poison Elder' of America is again no Elder, but a Sumach, its other name being Swamp Sumach, botanically Rhus verni (Linn.). It is a handsome shrub or small tree, 10 to 15 feet high, growing in swamps from Canada to California, with very small greenish flowers and small greenish-white berries and is extremely poisonous. It was confounded by the older botanists with R. vernicifera (D.C.) of Japan, the Japanese lacquer tree, which has similar poisonous properties. Its synonym is R. venenata (D.C.) See SUMACH.

There is a tree called the 'Box Elder,' mentioned by W. J. Bean in his Trees and Shrubs hardy in the British Isles; this is not a true Elder, however, but one of the American maples that yield sugar.

There are about half a dozen species of Elder hardy in Great Britain. The Common Elder (S. nigra), of which there are many varieties in cultivation, several of which are very ornamental, has leaves often very finely divided and jagged and variegated both with golden and silver blotches, a specially ornamental form being the 'golden cut-leaf Elder,' and another with yellow berries; the American Elder (S. canadensis) (the flowers of which, together with those of S. nigra are official in the United States Pharmacopoeia) has berries smaller and deep purple rather than black, the leaves broader and the flowers more fragrant than our Common Elder, it never attains tree size, but is a shrub of from 6 to 10 feet in height; the Blue Elder (S. glauca), the intensely blue berries of which are used as a food, when cooked, in California; the Red-berried Elder (S. racemosa), a pretty species, native of Central and Southern Europe, cultivated in shrubberies, which flowers in March and towards the end of summer is highly ornamental, with large oval clusters of bright scarlet berries, is so attractive to birds that their beauty is rarely seen, except when cultivated close to a house; the Red-berried American Elder (S. rubens and S. melanocarpa).

---Cultivation---The Elders like moisture and a loamy soil; given these, they are not difficult to accommodate. The pruning of the sorts grown for their foliage should be done before growth recommences.

They can be easily propagated by cuttings or by seeds, but the former being the most expeditious method is generally followed. The season for planting the cuttings is any time from September to March, and no more care is needed than to thrust the cuttings 6 to 8 inches into the ground. They will take root very quickly, and can be afterwards transplanted where they are to remain. If their berries are allowed to fall upon the ground, they will produce abundance of plants in the following summer.

Herbaceous kinds like S. Ebulus may be increased by dividing the rootstocks in early autumn or spring.

Waning Moon 
This is the period when the moon journeys from Full to New moon. Casting spells for removing problems, eliminating trouble, neutralizing adversaries and causing harm is most affective when the moon is on the wane. Protection spells for yourself, your loved ones, home and material possessions are also best cast at this time. It is also a time when our bodies are most susceptible to cleansing, so it is a good time to cleanse yourself through the process of detoxification. This can be best achieved through healing and herbal remedies, such as healing teas. Diet and exercise also become easier during this time and results tend to last longer.

Waning Moon - breaking curses, negative powers & addictions.

Spell for Today~Breaking a Curse

Breaking a Curse

On the first night of the waxing moon, gather the following ingredients:

a square of black cloth a little larger than your hand. 
1 tablespoon of curry 
1 tablespoon of dill 
1 tablespoon of vervain 
1 tablespoon powdered ginger 
1 consecrated black candle 
paper and black ink pen 
1 black string, knotted nine times

On paper, write the full name and birth date (if known) of the person who has cursed you. 
Place the paper in the center of the bag. One at a time, add the herbs, covering the slip of paper. 
Next, take the lit candle and drip 5-10 drops of wax over the paper and herbs. 
Visualize the person who has cursed you and say their name aloud three times while tying the bag shut with the knotted string. 
The final step is to bury the bag someplace on the property of the person who cursed you. 
The bag must remain there undisturbed until the next waxing moon. At that time, dig up the bag and burn the contents. 
This will weaken that person's power (usually until the night of the full moon) and the curse

Be Blessed Today & Cast With Care )O(

Care of Crystals
A guide to cleansing crystals
It is important to cleanse a crystal when you receive it. Crystals naturally absorb energy and cleansing it removes energy it has picked up along the way before reaching you. It is important to also cleanse your crystals after you have been working energetically with them, such as in healing work or meditation, as they absorb the persons energy you have been healing and it can be passed on if you don’t clean it out of the crystals.
When to cleanse
You will know when a crystal you have been working with needs to be cleansed. Quartz crystals may become cloudier, where they were bright and clear before, other crystals will lose their luster. Some crystals physically feel denser or heavier, like they are carrying a burden or extra load.
The crystals you wear or have around the house will need cleansing regularly, depending on how much you wear them or how much action is going on in the house.
Also, you will need to cleanse your quartz crystal when you want to reprogram it to do something else.
Methods for cleansing crystals
To cleanse your crystal you use your energy to work directly with the crystals’. This is done through your intention – a focused mind. While holding your crystal in your hands, visualize it immersed in white light, clearing it of any unwanted energies and re-energizing it. Hold it for several minutes or as long as you feel inclined. Ask “that all the energies within the crystal are transformed into divine light and love, and that it is clear and activated to its full potential”.
Most crystals love running water. Hold your crystal under the tap and allow cold water to flow over it. As you do so, visualize all negative energies dissolving and washing away, transforming into positive healing energy
Visualize a flow of clear, pure mountain water going through the crystal, washing away all impurities and seeing them transformed into positive healing energy.
Rinse or bathe your crystals in rain-water, water from a spring, a stream, the beach, a river or sacred source, even in a waterfall (make sure you hold on to them or they can get swept away). Dry them naturally in gentle sunlight.
Morning sunlight gently cleanses your crystals and moonlight is a softer way to let light filter through your crystals and cleanse them. The best time for this is a full moon.
Using the smoke of sacred herbs such as sage, cedar, and lavender to smudge and cleanse the energetic matrix of crystals. Smudging with white sage removes negative energy from crystals and rooms in your house. (Smudging is to light the herbs and burn them, when the flame dies the embers burn creating smoke. You then pass your crystal through the smoke while asking it to be cleansed and purified.)
Place your crystals on a bed of rock salt for 24- 48 hours to purify the crystal’s energetic matrix.
Bury them in the earth, soil or clay for 2 –7 days as this provides a slow and gentle form of cleansing. The longer you leave it the deeper the cleansing. (Make sure you the spot where you buried your crystal as they wriggle away and can get lost in the earth)
Water
Cold running water – from the tap is fine for most crystals. Never use warm or hot water. Water is not recommended for soaking calcite, opals (doublets and triplets), pearls, celestite, unpolished malachite or turquoise as due to their composition they can dissolve or be permanently damaged.
Recharging your crystals
We recharge crystals to give them renewed energy. There are many ways to do this:
Placing your crystals in sunlight for an hour or so, will charge most crystals. After a sunbath on your windowsill, your crystals will be noticeably brighter. You can also place your crystals on the earth for an additional charge while recharging them under the Sun, Moon or Stars.
Placing your crystals out under Moonlight is a gentle and penetrating method for recharging your crystals. The full moons’ light is the brightest in its cycle, thus giving a greater charge to your crystals.
Placing them out in any dynamic weather conditions such as a thunderstorm provides an awesome electromagnetic charge to your crystals.
Placing your crystals on an amethyst cluster is great for recharging jewellery and smaller crystals. You can also place your crystals on a clear quartz cluster that you have programmed to recharge any crystals you put on it.
Your crystals like to be out in the open, where they can work to their full potential. Keep them on material or in a bag that is made from silk, satin, velvet or cotton – not man made fibres. Crystals need to be treated carefully as they are fragile and can chip and split. If you carry them with you keep them in a bag so they are protected.
Storing your mineral specimens
Select a location that’s dry and clean. Exposure to salt air (common in coastal areas), dust, or moisture can damage or destroy some specimens.
If possible, use boxes made of plastic or acid-free materials to prevent chemical reactions between the specimen and it’s container.
Keep small, fragile, or soft samples in individual or divided containers that are lined with tissue. An economical way to store small, fragile samples is in an egg carton.
Try to keep each specimen separate so harder minerals don’t damage softer minerals
Don’t use cotton balls or pads to line your boxes. The fibers can stick to your specimens.
Each specimen is unique and can never truly be replaced. Each is collected at a single point in time, from a specific geographic location, and has a unique genetic or geologic history.

Spiritual Chills and How to Understand Them

Have you ever been having a conversation with someone, and suddenly experienced chills, or gotten goosebumps?

Or maybe you’ve been sitting meditating in the sunshine, or just thinking about something and feeling perfectly warm, but you’ve gotten the shivers?

If you have experienced either of these, you’ve likely experienced ‘Spiritual Chills’.

Everybody gets goosebumps of some sort on a fairly regular basis. Some may feel it more frequently and stronger in vibration but to some degree we all experience them. Unfortunately few know what to do with them let alone why they are getting them. If you start to pay attention to when you are getting them, you will begin to notice it is when you are in need of some kind of guidance or something is to catch your attention. Goosebumps are you picking up on energy, usually someone else's or a thought that you should pay attention to or look deeper into.

Goosebumps or sudden shivers or chills are trying to tell you or show you something. What ever they are trying could tell you is up to you to decide. They could be a warning, say if you were talking to a stranger and you had a bad feeling about this person when suddenly you get a shiver down your spine. You might take that as a warning to part ways and be cautious of this person.

They could come when you have an inspirational idea or thought, this possibly telling you you are on the right path and to move forward with this new idea. Goosebumps can appear when you are thinking of someone, you can bet in that moment when you feel them, the other person received whatever energy you were just sending to them in your thoughts and although this other person may not consciously know what this energy was, or know that you did this, but you can bet they felt an energy shift on some level.

You may receive goosebumps during a conversation with someone or a group of people, this may be telling you to be extra aware of what is being said or to whoever is in your surrounding environment. Nothing may happen in that moment but something may become relevant in the near future, that you may not have noticed if you hadn't received those goosebumps and known to pay close enough attention to see the guidance offered.

When a loved one who has passed on is near, you may feel them through the energy creating your shivers or goosebumps. When a spirit is trying to get through to you or just letting you know they are there, you may feel chills. Our subconcious can pick up on energies near by, even though we can't see it.

This energy vibration can be felt anywhere on your body. Some receive the majority of them on their head and shoulders and arms, others down their legs, and others anywhere and in various combinations, Your guidance is different than any one else's, so start seeing if you see any patterns or at least know that something is going on and act accordingly. They are a gift, a sign, guidance, the universe saying pay attention !

Getting chills that aren’t at all cold or illness related are a common sign of spiritual activity. When I’m talking about chills, it’s not like you’re shivering… But more like an energy flows in which causes a tingling, a slight shudder, and maybe even goosebumps.

Next time you get this sort of psychic chill… Pay attention! Your guides may have a message for you, or there may be something which was being discussed, or in your proximity which you need to understand or notice.

Spiritual chills are often a direct sign from your guides or angels. Chills can act as a validation that you’re right on track, or they can signify a yes answer, confirming an underlying truth.

Spiritual chills may also occur because your spirit guides or angelic friends are reaching out and touching you, and the surge of their pure spirit energy physically manifests through you as chills.

For me, Spirit often uses chills as a gentle, and yet un-ignorable sign to pay attention because this is important. A jolt of energy which causes the chills is also a method of quickly and clearly communicating a direct-hit, or yes answer. I get a similar, though less sudden, energetic surge or chill right when I connect with a high vibrational guide or angel to channel.

Spiritual chills and goosebumps are often one of the first psychic senses to open up for those on a spiritual path. You may feel chills down half of your body, on your arms, legs, the top of your head, or really anywhere.

What do these ‘psychic chills’ mean?

The biggest tip I can give you on how to decipher what your chills mean, is to pay attention!

For example, if you’re having a conversation with someone, and you have the urge to say something, perhaps related to spirit, or really whatever, but then you doubt whether you should mention it… And then you get the chills. I would take this as a sign to speak up, the person you’re speaking with may need to hear exactly what you were about to say, and your guides are nudging you to say it.

You may also receive a chill as a warning of sorts. If you’re feeling a bit off about someone you meet, they look at you in a funny way, and you get the chills. It may simply be a validation of your initial feeling, and a reminder to call in love and light to protect your vibration so that you’re able to stay in a state of love and joy.

On the other hand your chills may simply be the manifestation of a truth which has been spoken. They are a gentle way of getting your attention, so that you will really listen, and can then take action.

Pay Attention!

Next time you feel the chills, shift in the mode of the observer. Notice what was happening around you leading up to the spiritual chill, take a breath, and ask “What am I supposed to know or understand”.
Whether your psychic or spiritual chill was a direct result from an angelic encounter, a run in with your spirit guide, or simply a validation of truth, getting the spiritual chills is a good sign. Act on your inspiration when you feel the chill, or simply note the present truth, and then continue forward in awareness.

With meditation and becoming more and more aware you can understand the spiritual chills you receive with increased clarity, and learn to hear and experience the expanded guidance of the angels often present alongside.

Many people get chill(s) such as "cold" chills or "shuddering" chill which will be addressed in a future article . What we are talking about here is..................

Have you ever felt a "chill" or "chills" where it feels like a current of energy has gone through you for a moment or two? You hear a great song or you are talking to someone, hear "truth," and a rush of energy comes through you and your whole body feels the tingling surge. The feeling is amazing and "good."

Most everyone I have surveyed has felt a chill or chills for a moment, and most immediately forgot they experienced it. It happens again and again to people over time and is forgotten. So what are these chill surges?

To me, when the chill(s) are felt in this manner, a person's energy system (chakra system) is opened for a brief moment and a connection to the great spirit, the holy spirit, your angels, and the divine is established. You get "in tune" with the eternal life force, even for just a moment.

I have learned to use the chill(s) energy to help myself and others, I can feel the chill(s) on my request and do not have to wait for a happenstance occurance. The chill(s) energy moves through me as I ask for help, and if I am helping someone else, I channel the energy out of my body towards that person.

It is similar to a prayer, but with the additional surge of positive a chill(s) feeling. Mychanneling of this chill energy has helped people who have had various ailments many times in easing their pains.

Note that what happens depends on what is in the highest good for a person. It might not be in a person's highest good........to be relieved from an ailment or situation. But maybe it is! Sometimes good things happen which might not otherwise have happened, just by asking for help! When I ask for help for myself or someone else, I believe the great spirit or divine comes in and helps in some manner.

While I prefer direct touch in channeling the chill(s) energy, I have learned that I do not have to touch someone directly. DISTANCE DOES NOT MATTER ! The chill(s) energy can be directed to someone miles away from me. I do not have to see someone, in person, for the channeling to occur.

Now there are many different energy workers who help people and are wonderful. Most require "hands on" energy work, such as Reichi. To the best of my knowledge, their energy work does not relate to the chill(s) energy except for a very special lady I know who does body energy work and home clearing energy work. The chill(s) direct her when a body or home needs help ( please feel free to ask more about her.)

Imagine the possibilities if this chill energy could help all of us? Imagine what 3 or 4 people could do directing this energy to a person in pain? The chill(s) energy is a new (old) undeveloped frontier. Is this a spiritual phenomenon we have been ...............BLIND.............. to?

12 Signs Of Contact

 

Spiritual Connection can come in many forms. As you work with your Spirit Guides, Angels or other Deity, you will find they have favorite ways of connecting with you and will use those ways most of the time so that you immediately recognize who has come calling.  Once you’ve come to know the patterns of your spiritual connections, you’ll no longer wonder what was that. You will easily recognize them all from Grandma Bell to Archangel John.During connection you may experience some of the following:

v  A flash of heat.  Sometimes the room heats up while I am working, but they someone like an Archangel arrives, I get a flash of heat that descends through my Crown Chakra and I sometimes break out into a sweat.

v  Cold chills. I personally feel like I have a shiver in my spine.  It’s not a true shaking, but like my spine wants to shake, but can’t quite do it.

v  Feel or sense a "presence" or an energy.  It can feel like someone in the room you can’t see, or just a knowing that someone is there.

v  See shapes or shadows.  Spirits can appear in any way from the movie-like version of ghosts to sparkles or lights and orbs.

v  Feel pressure at the base of your brain.  This is the location of one of the main spiritual energy gates in the body.  When it isn’t open or functioning properly, you will feel pressure and sometimes get a headache.  Proper grounding can keep this energy gate functioning fully and keep your energy distributed properly so that you don’t develop a headache.

v  The top of your head may begin to tingle, or you like something is in your hair and want to brush at it

v  Third Eye pressure.  The Third Eye, also known as the Brow Chakra is located between your eyebrows.  You may experience a slight ache there when contacting your spirit guides.

v  Hear voices without a physical source.  Sometimes these voices seem a bit outside of your head, No one is there, they are in your head, but yet seem outside of it.  I sometimes hear a very clear voice without seeing a body.

v  You may see symbols, colors, words, flashes of light, or pictures through your 3rd eye.  These seem particularly prevent just before you fall asleep, but can be present during meditations and psychic exercises.

v  Smell odors without a physical source.  A well known phenomenon from departed spirits.  People often report smelling dad’s pipe or Aunt Claire’s White Shoulders Perfume.  Some smells are associated with certain angels and deity too.

v  Taste flavors without a physical source.  These seems a rare occurrence compared to the others.  I’m not sure why.

v  People show up in your life and say something, or hand you something that is a direct correlation to your guide’s contact.  I was a bit frustrated with my connections one day and adamantly demanded that my guides be more obvious in answering me.  A couple of hours later, a lady walked into my office saying she had been pumping gas across the street and got this urge to bring in a brochure she had in her car. The title was Angels Heal.  She left as confused as she entered, but I knew that was the answer to my demand.

How-ever your spiritual friends and help-mates choose to show you they are around.  All it takes is being aware of your surroundings. You’ll find there are plenty of signs to show that you have connected with your Spirit Guides.

Please pay attention and document, document, document.

Meditation does not always alleviate the symptoms of the chills, but it does help you to ground and center. I found doing this in a nice hot bath calms the body for that the mind is not so focused on the body chills and relaxed enough start receiving the messages.

Make sure you are setting the mood to enhance with candles, music and aromatics.

~* You Daily Fortunes for Wednesday February 11th, 2015 *~

Tarot~The Moon

The Moon represents those forces which remain largely hidden to us. The light of the moon provides some illumination down a path into the unknown, but not enough to brighten the landscape like The Sun, or cut through the dark shadows from which the unexpected may leap. However, The Moon is not without gifts we can use. She spurs our imagination and creativity. She can be a portal to knowledge and experience beyond the realm of our everyday lives. But Her offerings are not available to the feint of heart. To receive what The Moon offers one must have the courage to follow uncharted paths and the intelligence to find truths hidden in a bewildering setting rife with illusion. For those who can make this journey the reward may be finding the key to making their dreams come true.

Witches Oracle~4: Chaos

Basically all magick is chaos. It demands that things be rearranged to match the expectations and/or demands of the witch. Creating vacuums does cause temporarily chaos, but on the same hand good things come from chaos as well, such as new and exciting transformations or transitions becoming active in your life, space, or dimension. 
The meaning call for here is to make room in your mind for the temporary disruption of your comfort zone from that chaos, and that will lead you to a more desirable state of being.  
Casting out of chaos is an excellent focus for spells of beginnings or changes.

Witches Rune~The Scythe

This symbol is very familiar to most of people, often associated with harvest and death. In the runes, it is no different. The Scythe is related to endings, sudden separations, final decisions, important changes and danger.

The appearance of this symbol show that there’s something in you life you need to bring to end now, before it snowballs into something worse. Usually, the decision that the Scythe forces you to make is one you’d rather escape from… it’s a painful and difficult choice. Even though you know (or feel) it’s for the best, you’ll mourn the fact that it has to happen.

Also, the Scythe is connected to sudden, swift changes that force you to alter completely your plans, strategies and sometimes the very way you see the world. The situation is no longer what it was, your modus operandi no longer works here. Your ideas no longer correspond to the reality. The information you have is no longer accurate, or useful. You need to strain those adaptation muscles and find a way to keep standing while the rug is pulled from under your feet.

Although this rune can represent physical danger, such as accidents or surgeries, many time it refers to sense of foreboding. Something just isn’t right… the fear of loss looms large. Trust these feeling and proceed with caution. This rune can also relate to actual death and all related to it: burials, graveyards, inheritances, heirlooms, legacies and things connected to your ancestry.

In relationship readings, the Scythe suggest caution too. It can represent sudden and irresistible attractions, the kind that inspire people to do crazy things. . Obviously, this rune also represent separations, divorce and conflicts, always leaving a sour aftertaste. The strong passion can quickly transform into strong resentment. In its most positive note, this rune can symbolize relationship that completely transform the people involved.

Norse Rune~Perthro

Mysteries will become known to you. You should be able to see your life’s path clearly at this time. Pethro is often thought of as “Gambler’s Rune.” You are in a lucky period right now. Chance is your ally. Take advantage of it.
perþ: dice-cup? vulva?
 Phonetic equivalent: p
DIVINATORY MEANINGS: rebirth, mystery, magic, divination, fertility, sexuality, new beginning, prophecy
MAGICAL USES: fertility, easing childbirth, to aid in divination and magic, enhancing psychic abilities
ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Freya, Angrbode
ANALYSIS: The actual interpretation of perþ has been the subject of much controversy among runic scholars. The problem lies in the fact that the initial P sound doesn’t occur anywhere else in the old Germanic language, leading to the belief that the word was imported from another language. The Old English rune poem seems to indicate that it had to do with some sort of game, leading many to interpret it as ‘chess pawn’ or ‘dice-cup’. The dice-cup meaning is particularly interesting as it not only fits the shape of rune, but also hints at such an object’s original use as a container for the runes themselves. An alternate interpretation of perþ is derived from the Slavic ‘pizda’, meaning ‘vulva’. This meaning (although obscure and somewhat unlikely) fits quite into the progression of runes up until this point, symbolizing the
rebirth that follows death. Viewing it as a symbol of the womb of the Goddess, it represents the same element of the mysterious and hidden as ‘dice-cup’, but taken literally as ‘vulva’, it adds a powerful, feminine, sexual counterpart to uruz that would otherwise be missing from the fuþark.
However you choose to interpret the literal meaning of perþ (and again, nobody really knows what that is), the basic symbolism is that of a vessel, nurturing and giving ‘birth’, keeping hidden and secret all those mysteries, which can be uncovered only after the initiation of death. The rune is closely tied in with the idea of fate, that the road we travel, regardless of what we choose to do along the way, is predetermined from the moment of our birth. The very act of being born sets us along a course of cause and effect, action and reaction that we may choose to follow blindly, or try to divine through the runes or other means order that we may better understand the lessons we will learn. Perþ is the beginning of this process, as well as the tool for accomplishing it.
 
Spirit Animal~
Antelope

Antelope medicine is one of right action. If you were to visit Northern Plains today, you would see groups of antelope scattered about the fields and hills. However they are so quiet and unmoving that (from a distance) they resemble stones. But, get too close and they move like lightening. Antelope asks you: are you being still when you should be moving, or moving when stillness is required?

ANTELOPE
Action, Speed, Adaptability of the Mind

Antelope teaches survival.
How to avoid indiscriminate destruction of life.
The Antelope signifies knowledgeable action.

Antelope medicine is the knowledge of life’s circle, the knowledge and understanding of death.
Through Antelope you can learn to truly live and action is the key and essence to living.
If you have a problem which you cannot solve, call on Antelope and he will speak to you and set you free.
Listen to Antelope, but more importantly, act.
You will overcome any obstacle in your path.

Antelope is the messenger of a higher purpose; he knows the way and through him, so will you.
Antelope can teach clairvoyance by listening to his voice inside of you.
An Antelope person is intrinsically psychic.
Often it is in the form of clear-smelling – fragrances and odors will awaken this power.
Mediate using a fragrance with musk in it.
Trust your instincts.  If a person or situation does not “smell” right, back away from it.

The Moon today is in a Waning Gibbous Phase. This is the first phase after the Full Moon occurs. It lasts roughly 7 days with the Moon’s illumination growing smaller each day until the Moon becomes a Last Quarter Moon with a illumination of 50%. The average Moon rise for this phase is between 9 am and Midnight depending on the age of the phase. The moon rises later and later each night setting after sunrise in the morning. During this phase the Moon can also be seen in the early morning daylight hours on the western horizon.

Twist of fate - when you least expect it ...
I hope that you're learning a lot about astrology as well as experiencing the constant changes - the best aspect of understanding astrology is knowing for a fact - 100% fact - that NOTHING ever stays the same forever and ever. That's because there's always a constant renewable change in energies. The cycle of a New Moon always leads to a Full Moon and then leads to another New Moon. Likewise with all the planets - constant cyclical movements through all the star signs - means sooner or later - there's always CHANGE and there's always something NEW.
 
At the beginning of January 2015 - I said there would be many changes - it wasn't a magical prophecy - merely a factual truth - defined by all the planets - especially the fact that the whole world is being blessed by Saturn in Sagittarius [Fire Sign] and Uranus in Aries [Fire Sign] - with Jupiter in retrograde in Leo [Fire Sign] meant NO MORE stagnation - everything and everyone has been and is on-the-move forward - and all problems from the "past" are being sorted out. Depending on your own birthday and depending on how blocked your life has been - defined how hard "destiny" had to work on "you" to create movement.
 
At the moment when you got a breakthrough you probably smiled even cried for happiness - however and depending on your own circumstances you might have had to CRY - to unlock your own aura - in order to break the boundaries of negativity - in order to let in the goodness. This is is sharp contrast to crying that is done out of selfishness like an immature baby which is useless and selfish - but when crying is done - because you really need it - it is powerful, transformative and energizing. Crying helps you DETACH from the problem. Crying defines an ending - because once you've cried yourself out - then you can't cry anymore - and you're done - you've let-go and now destiny can work all the pieces of your life - and get you moving forward.
 
The reason I mention "crying" on Moon astrology is - that the Moon triggers inexplicable emotions that might make you cry for no reason - and if you didn't have a cry last week after the Full Moon then as Moon in Scorpio makes several SQUARES - the sharpest of which is on Thursday when Moon 23° Scorpio squares Sun 23° Aquarius - you might just get an inexplicable emotion.
 
Moon in Scorpio will be creating ENDINGS - so if you've been waiting for an ENDING - Moon in Scorpio will be LUCKY for you. If you've been holding onto something that's no longer your destiny to have - then you will either feel DELIGHTED that during Moon in Scorpio is vanishes from your life - as suddenly and abruptly you'll wake-up and it's all over.
 
This applies to anything or anyone in your life that is the source of STAGNATION - as Sun in Aquarius which is the source of the Moon's light and energy - is ensuring everything DEAD and irrelevant to your future - you become detached from - both emotionally and in reality. The quirk and twist of fate will come when you wake-up either on Tuesday or Wednesday morning and realize you have no more feelings for someone anymore. Suddenly you'll feel NOTHING - because destiny doesn't want you to feel anything anymore.

Weekly Astrology for Pisces
For everyone with Sun in Pisces
 
Your Own Astrological Chart
For the past few months I've updated this page - but realized the truth that it's not 100% right. As your own astrological chart will truthfully define what happens for you. Therefore - if you've any questions about understanding your own astrological chart use the "reading" service.
However, there are patterns that will define what happens to you - the inner planets of Sun, Mercury and Venus - have their own cycle and pattern - and something you should recognize by now - just like you know which Moon star signs are good for you and which are bad for you.
Whilst the energy of outer planets of Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto will define your life as fixed transcending energies - as collectively everyone gets the same energy - but depending on your own astrological chart and age - will define how you receive, aceept or fight against the transcending energies from the outer planets.
 
This week's important astrological aspects are :-
[1] Sun in Aquarius 
[2] Mercury in Aquarius 
[3] Venus in Pisces 
[4] Mars in Pisces
[5] Jupiter in Leo 
[6] Saturn in Sagittarius 
[7] Uranus in Aries 
[8] Neptune in Pisces 
[9] Pluto in Capricorn
 
[1] Sun in Aquarius 20th January => 19th February 2015 - it's going to be an unusual month for you - and it doesn't stop once Sun enters Pisces either - the ongoing non-stop changes will continue at least until end April 2015 - then you'll be able to relax and take it easy again. The truth is you've been asking for things to change for the past few years - and now that they do change - ironically - you're wishing it could go back to stagnation again. That's because as a water sign of Pisces - you don't adapt easily to the initial beginnings of change - and in the past 4 years - since Neptune entered Pisces - you haven't STUCK at anything with the ease you normally do. It's like you haven't yet accepted the new waters you find yourself swimming in "yet".
 
The good news is that this month [and next month Sun in Pisces] you will undergo as series of changes - and this time you will find a method and situations that will ensure you come out of the other side - into a NEW world. Unlike the past few years - when you've gone in - but backtracked and come out - back to where you started. This year this month and next - you will succeed in moving forward.
 
You might think it's ONLY YOU - and that you're the ONLY ONE getting it - you're not - all star signs - everyone in the world will be experiencing generational changes. It's just you as a PISCES - especially if you've born between 18th February => 1st March of any year - are getting it more than others due to
 
Saturn moves 2° => 3° => 4° Sagittarius [Fire Sign] | squaring your PISCES identity
And Neptune moves 5° => 6° => 7° => 8° Pisces [Water Sign] | conjunct your PISCES identity
 
So it seems like you're being squeezed and forced to change - the good news is that when you stop being uptight, anxious and relax more - then you'll see that DESTINY is actually helping you attain the NEW LIFE - a NEW LIFE which will bring you stability and happiness for the next 12-20 years of your life - all you need to do is LET the changes happen. Open up more - swim in the waters you find yourself in - instead of fighting to get-out.
 
As a WATER sign of Pisces - you should enjoy the journey of change - but because the past few years since Neptune entered Pisces in 2011 - you haven't been able to - you're doubting whether - the unfolding changes are simply more bad news or whether the changes will come good for you. All I ask you to do - is have faith - the constant changes that are about to unfold are just part of the journey - don't get anxious - accept and enjoy the fact that REAL things are happening in your life - and you've not been neglected or forgotten.
 
AND most importantly - when BIG dramas happen in other people's lives - especially around the Leo Full Moon of 3rd February - don't get involved in their lives - it's their karmic problem not yours - and however tempting it is to get involved - don't - because if you get involved in other people's drama - it will distract you from your own life - and that's when you will make mistakes. If you keep focus on your own destiny during Sun in Aquarius - then nothing will bother you.
 
 
 
[2] Mercury in Aquarius 5th January => 13th March 2015 - [which includes a Mercury retrograde from 22nd January => 12th February 2015] - with both Mercury & Venus in Aquarius - the energy of change is going to be busy and vibrant for everyone.
However, as a water sign of Pisces - you want a quiet life but that's not going to happen anytime soon - and therefore just ACCEPT that the next few weeks - at least until 27th January 2015 - it's going to be very very busy.
A word of advice - is please react quickly - otherwise - being "slow" and unresponsive will annoy others - they might take it as a sign that you're not interested or you're being stubborn and want to block their progress. You might miss great opprtunities if you're too slow.
Another facet of both Mercury & Venus in Aquarius - is harmony from WITHIN - you're mind and thoughts will be thinking clearly and you'll find SUCCESS - if you do something as soon as you get the brilliant idea to do it.
The Mercury retrograde in house of money in liberating "Aquarius" between 22nd January => 12th February 2015 - should you the answers you need to sort out your finances - and give you the freedom you need.
 
 
[3] Venus in Pisces 27th January => 20th February 2015 - this week Venus in Pisces - begins to work with Mars in Pisces on that area of your life that's been dormant for the past 2 years - and it luckily now gets sorted. Venus defines what excites you inside - what you love in life - so much that you can't live without - LOVE, MONEY & SUCCESS - and yet for the past 2 years many have just survived and not had any of these at all.
Due to the fact that it is the Sun's light that is shining on Venus and Mars in Pisces [and all the planets in our solar system] - it is therefore the power of Sun in Aquarius that is generating the all the unexpected surprises, all the busy lively activity, all the solutions and hence all the success - it's essence is both in unusual brilliant ideas and through power of freedom of speech and communication - you get the success you need.
For you - as a Pisces - it is perfect - because - the moment you think the idea - "life" will ensure you get on and do it immediately - and see an immediate positive result. Just remember - to convey your strong message - packaged in laughter, smiles and warmth - and then it will be received correctly. If you send your message in a serious NEGATIVE manner - it will be received as NEGATIVE and get blocked - so be careful HOW you say things. During Venus in Pisces by 20th February - your life will be much happier - as you'll see that neglected facet of LOVE, MONEY and SUCCESS being sorted out - won't that be a huge relief !
 
 
[4] Mars in Pisces 12th January => 19th February 2015 - Mars is the power to get life moving - and as you've seen from the past few weeks - things are moving. During Mars in Pisces - even the things that are so used to be left-along in peace and quiet - will be moving too - that's because Mars in Pisces will not allow anything or anyone to rest. The real reason is that Mars in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius - ensuring anything that DESTINY wants moving and wants changing - will now be changed.
As Pisces - you like change - but only things you want changing - you don't like it when changes are forced on you - this week - you're going to find yourself being forced to change - in order to help others. Use the best of your strengths - and if someone needs a HELP - give them HELP. You shouldn't hesitate doing what you know is right - Mars in Pisces will bring out the BEST in you - and will ensure others notice your strengths - this will help your long-term stability and success.
 
 
[5] Jupiter in Leo - from 16th July 2014 => 11th August 2015 - the GOOD news is that Jupiter in Leo will quickly work in July, August and September 2014 to fix your life for you - even quicker than you can imagine - the PISCES - it will allow you to live again - for the past 12 months - you came under pressure to change - with so many external things affecting your life - that you didn't have peace to be "you".
Now and for the next 12 months - you will be able to be YOU again - but you must be honest with yourself - what's the real version of YOU and what have you been doing just to please others and what have you been doing to AVOID dealing with MAJOR issues in your life. Life is about having the right people in your life - and even you - are going to realize that you can't live alone - life is most wholesome and most successful when you're sharing with others and having loving relationships.
 
Currently Jupiter is in retrograde and until Jupiter goes direct on 9th April 2015 the next few weeks will be focused on sorting out the "past" - solving the problems of the "past" - will ensure you will have a much happier future. Business and Success is often defined by looking at the "Past" to see where you went wrong - and then correcting the specific mistakes - so use the time until 9th April 2015 - and put the "past" right - even if it means either forgiving the "past" or deleting it completely !
 
 
[6] Saturn entered Sagittarius 23rd December 2014 - to be explained at length after completing "Next Year 2015" pages - meanwhile read the introduction on Months Astrology and to that I must add that as a Pisces - you're going to see your world changing Saturn in Sagittarius - and it starts immediately on Tuesday evening 23rd December when Saturn enters Sagittarius.
 
There's something we all used to have within each of us prior to 2008 - and that was a FIRE - created from WITHIN and yet it influenced our outer aura - that enabled us to THINK of, FOCUS on and got excited about something and then made it happen. It happened - because your destiny wanted you to want it to happen - so your aura became fired-up and excited towards achieving it. This made you LOVE LIFE - because it made you feel so alive. It also gave you confidence because you knew - that if you got the "energy" - you were going to succeed to get what you were being fired-up to get.
 
During the past 5 years - what you got fired-up and excited for - has changed - and during Saturn in Sagittarius - will be changing again - except now - it will disturb and puzzle you - because things that you used to get so excited for - you're no longer "turned-on" by - whereas other things are now getting your attention.
 
Saturn in Sagittarius will be creating the inexplicable WARMTH to make you connected to all your destined to be connected to - and it will do it for every facet of your life - excite you with WARMTH towards your destiny - and likewise - it create COLDNESS towards everything that's no longer important or relevant in your life. The problem is how do you inform others that you've changed your mind!?
 
 
 
 
[7] Uranus in Aries - before attempting to explain the unpredictable and inexplicable and how it pertains to you - the Pisces - I must explain a little about the goals and objective of Uranus in Aries - "destiny" needs to create a "future" for humanity and in order to create the "future" it needs EVERYONE to think differently today.
The period of history until March 2011 - was the "past" - and the methods of the past - although useful - aren't sustainable nor right for the future which began in March 2011. Hence dramatically Uranus creates unexpected situations that need brilliant ideas to solve the problems. Aries rules the head and ideas - and unfortunately many people forget they've got a head - and certainly have forgotten how to use it.
People who are STUCK in the PAST - trying to sustain past methods will find themselves getting very frustrated, stressed out and will find that "destiny" has different plans for humanity. Uranus in Aries - wants humanity to GROW and CHANGE to a NEW LEVEL - and now between December 2014 and July 2015 is the karmic time that we will all collectively be taken to that NEW LEVEL as Uranus goes direct on 22nd December 2014 - and once again - goals of the "future" will be awakened.
 
From 23rd December 2014 - you have probably realized something has changed - and as a Pisces- you don't like changes that you sense but can't see what they are and what's going to happen - but you KNOW that something has changed - and you can sense that it means the status quo you've accepted in the past 2-3 years - is about to change. All I can say - is realize that between now and March 2015 - you're going to be changing in many more ways than one. Go with the flow and let life take you on the "journey" - you will have the "new" stability after 21st March 2015 - that you're looking for - however - between now and then - there's going to be many changes - all of which are truthfully very good for you - so enjoy the journey instead of being worried about the destination.
 
 
[8] Neptune in Pisces - has very important significance to you as a Pisces - this is a difficult aspect to explain for "everyone" because depending on which generation you belong to - will related to where Neptune sits in your chart - if you happen to be born with Neptune in Scorpio between 1956 => 1970 - you're the luckiest - as Neptune in Pisces means you can start to make BIG progress in your life. Specifically something NEW that was defined in your life when Neptune entered Pisces in April 2011 will now begin to become successful in your life.
The nature of Neptune's movement that constantly you have to go back in order to go forward - and just when you though you were making progress - the Neptune retrograde takes you backwards - which since June 2014 you went backwards - from 16th November 2014 you went forwards again - and from 7th March 2015 - Neptune will be out of it's shadow - and NEW facets of your life will get a boost and move forward again.
As a Pisces you might want things to go back to the way they were prior to April 2011 - but you're now realizing that's never going to happen - and you're actually getting used to the "new" life with it's "new" version of life - as you're seeing that "life" has more meaning to it than the superficial life you were used to prior to April 2011.
 
 
[9] Pluto in Capricorn - as explained on this week's astrology - Pluto is BIGGER than people think - as it deals with all the karmic destined events that you MUST experience in order for your complete identity and your life to become WHOLESOME.
Since November 2008 - you've wished that life could go-back to how it used to be - the sooner you DELETE that wish from your head - the better - because LIFE has changed since Pluto entered Capricorn - it is the DESTINED time when your identity has to become WHOLESOME. This means you have to stop being stubborn and fixed on what you want to happen - and let DESTINY show you what you need to learn.
During the next few months with Pluto direct until 17th April 2015 - your karmic destiny is going to be putting you on a pathway that you never imagined possible - and instead of being forced and pushed into making changes and decisions - you will remarkably be quite happy to let go of the past because you'll be seeing a much better future unfolding for you - in real life - this will be become especially clear by 17th March 2015 after the final Pluto Square Uranus you GIVE UP living in the "past" and accept the "new" life as it is being defined for you.

Moon Correspondence:

Waning Moon - breaking curses, negative powers & addictions.

THE MOON AS A SYMBOL 
The moon is a powerful symbol of the Triple Goddess, who represents the spiritual growth of wisdom and the evolution of a woman from an innocent maiden to the loving mother and hence to the wise crone. These stages are also a reflection of the four lunar phases- the dark moon (just before the new moon) the waxing moon, the full moon, and the waning, which are also mirrored by the female menstrual cycles. Just as the moon is the mother of the universe, representing the feminine powers of the cosmos, so the sun is opposite and represents the masculine forces that surround us and infuse us with the power of the Gods. Purely in it's own right, the power of the moon and the timing of its phases can either enhance or disrupt our bodily rhythms and our lives. Consulting the moon and an astrological chart is a vital part of spell-casting. Some days and months are more beneficial for casting certain spells than other times.

Waning Moon 
This is the period when the moon journeys from Full to New moon. Casting spells for removing problems, eliminating trouble, neutralizing adversaries and causing harm is most effective when the moon is on the wane. Protection spells for yourself, your loved ones, home and material possessions are also best cast at this time. It is also a time when our bodies are most susceptible to cleansing, so it is a good time to cleanse yourself through the process of detoxification. This can be best achieved through healing and herbal remedies, such as healing teas. Diet and exercise also become easier during this time and results tend to last longer.

The Dark Witch is not to be confused with the Blyssful Witch and its practices though it skirts around the same edges, but focuses more towards Old World witchcraft and from the Morrigan rather than the Luciferarian traditions. The educational instruction will include the old witchcraft with a modern twist diving deeper into history and spell casting of the craft. This is a progressive class and if you have not already been educated in the introduction of dark arts, applicants will have to take a placement exam. All that dare to enter the Dark Witchcraft must have previous education and or skills and knowledge.

The Legion of Pagans will accept certification from other pagan educational schooling for placement. The class will run 11 weeks of educational instruction and one week of orientation. Depending upon the progression of the students will determine a extended length for class completion.

There will be four required books for the class that will be posted with the curriculum. My classes are extremely demanding and not for the faint of heart, so if you're ready to embrace all of the craft follow the link to apply. The Legion is proud of all our educators and programs we have to offer new practitioners.

)O(~~~LoP Mini Candle Magic Class Description~~~)O(

Instructor~RavenCat

Welcome!
I'm RavenCat and I'll be your instructor for this course. I am a solitary witch, ordained by the Fellowship of Isis and an ordained non-denominational Inter-Faith minister with the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry. I don’t have an exact time to indicate when I began on this Path of the Craft, however, it has been with me since childhood. I’m excited to be able to share in a part of your journey!

Candle Magick is a valuable tool in spellwork, meditation, prayer as well as in healing to mention a few areas. By blending the use of wax, herbs and oils, symbols, signals, gestures and words you are directing a symphony of powerful energies to manifest your intention.

Candlelight is magickal and brings warmth
and sets the mood.
Candles have been associated with myth,
lore, superstition, spells and been long used
for divination's and rituals, to intensify the
energies while performing magickal work.
Each color of the candles represents a
specific intent and combined with a spell,
will bring forth strength within our magick.
By using the proper candle color,
engraving a small symbol onto a candle or
by adding herbs and essential oils,
we create candle magick and when we
are using our special prepared candles
with our spells and rituals, we are adding
extra strength and energy to our magickal
work.

In this Class you will learn to incorporate
candle magick into your every day magick.

~~~All mini classes cost $40.00 and there are no refunds once the class starts~~~

Love is in the Air~Native Style

Ah love is in the air and time to make traditional plans.

Native American Traditions    
Many Native Americans desire a wedding which reflects their Indian heritage. You must understand where relatives and ancestors may have originated from to plan the wedding reflecting your heritage.We have included certain traditions and customs that reflect specific tribes in the United States. Please feel free to contact us with your comments, and any other traditions which you would like us to include.
Culture and Spirituality

Native American culture is composed of many tribes, each with distinct traditions and customs. It is difficult to characterize any aspect of a wedding as being “Native American”. Some traditions are common to many tribes, while others are unique.Most Native Americans believe that in the universe there exists the Great Spirit – a spiritual force that is the source of all life. The Great Spirit is not pictured as a man in the sky but it is believed to be formless and to exist throughout the universe. The sun is viewed as a manifestation of the power of the Great Spirit.

Some Native American wedding ceremonies are informal, while others are quite formal. When they were not small and informal, they were solemnized with feasts and merrymaking. Evening is the traditional time for the ceremony to occur.

Water is used as a symbol of purification and cleansing. The bride and groom have a ceremonial washing of hands to wash away past evils and memories of past loves.

From Native American Courtship & Marriage:

“Native American legends and myths have existed for thousands of years and are still relevant today. Many stories are moral tales about humankind’s relationship with the natural world, as well as several inspiring and poetic tales about love and the ritual of courtship. Indian poems had their roots in the songs and chants of tribal life. The Indians wrote songs and poetry for practical purposes as well as to deal with the invisible forces in their lives. They helped the people to conduct their lives honorably and assisted them through times of great emotion and need”. There are many moving stories in this book about marriage, courtship and puberty rites and celebrations, including even some suggested recipes!

Music Expression

Singing is the dominant form of musical expression, with instrumental music serving primarily as rhythmic accompaniment. Native American love songs are often played by men on flutes. Principal instruments have been drums and rattles, flutes and whistles.A very powerful musical presentation may be that of a group of men sitting around a large double-headed drum, singing in unison and drumming with sticks.

Music styles vary from region to region. For example, music in the Great Plains is tense, pulsating, forceful, with a high range and preferably falsetto; in California, it is produced by a relaxed throat.

Northern California Traditions

A custom among the Northern Californian Native Americans*, which was unique to them, is that of half-marriage and full-marriage.In a full marriage, two kinsmen represented the future bridegroom. After agreeing on a price, in accordance with the family’s wealth and social standing, the bridegroom – usually with his father’s help – would pay the bride’s family. The future social status of the family and the children depended on the price, therefore the bridegroom was willing to pay as much as he could possibly afford.

In half-marriage, the man would pay about half the usual price for his bride. The man would live in his wife’s home under her father’s jurisdiction. A man might have to half-marry because of a lack of wealth or social standing, or if his father did not approve of his bride. A woman’s family might allow her to half marry because they had no sons and needed another man in the family, or if there were Shaman powers in the family. About one in four marriages were half-marriages.

The bride’s dress may be woven in symbolic colors: white for the east, blue for the south, yellow (orange) for the west; and black for the north. Turquoise and silver jewelry are worn by both the bride and the groom in addition to a silver concho belt. Jewelry is considered a shield against evils including hunger, poverty and bad luck.

*The tribes of northern California include the Klamath, the Modoc and the Yurok.

Delaware Traditions

A Delaware Native American girl who reached puberty may have had her union prearranged by her parents. Often a couple just lived together as man and wife. To mark the occasion, there was a simple exchange of jewelry, blankets or a belt of wampum to the girl’s parents. If the parents accepted the gifts the union was sanctioned.The young bride would wear a knee-length skirt of deerskin and a band of wampum beads around her forehead. Except for fine beads or shell necklaces, the body would be bare from the waist up. If it were a winter wedding, she would wear deerskin leggings and moccasins and a robe of turkey feathers. Her face would be painted with white, red and yellow clay.

Pubelo Traditions

The Pueblo bride wore a cotton garment tied above the right shoulder, secured with a belt around the waist.

Navajo Traditions

White corn meal symbolizes the male and yellow the female. The Navajo combine the two meals into a corn mush and put it into a wedding basket before the traditional ceremony.The Navajo bride was an equal partner to her husband. The couple would share the maize pudding during the ceremony to symbolize the marriage bond.

Hopi Traditions

(special thanks to www.indiansun.com for some of this information)

The Hopi Native girl, after undergoing important rites of adolescence, (usually between the age of 16 and 20) is ready to receive suitors. In former days it was customary to give an informal picnic on the day following an important ritual.If a girl had decided on a youth as a future mate, she would extend to him an invitation to accompany her and would present him with a loaf of qomi, a bread made of sweet cornmeal in lieu of somiviki (maiden’s cake). Since this invitation was tantamount to being engaged, boys would only accept the invitation from girls they were willing to marry.

A Hopi young man would propose to a maiden by preparing a bundle of fine clothing and white buckskin moccasins. He would leave the bundle at her doorstep and if she accepted it, she accepted him as her future husband.

 

Approving the Marriage
If the prospective Hopi bride and groom expected the marriage to be sanctioned by society, there were several restrictions which must be followed. No marriage was allowed within the nuclear family or to someone who was previously married.Once the decision to marry is made by the young couple, the boy goes, after supper, to the girl’s home and states his intentions to the girls parents. If approved, he is instructed to return to his home and inform his parents. The girl will grind cornmeal or make bread and take it to the home of her prospective groom. If the mother accepts it, the wedding plans move forward.
 

Wedding Preparations
The bride returns home to grind more cornmeal, and the groom fetches water and chops wood for his mother. On the evening when these chores are completed, the bride dresses in her manta beads and her wedding blanket. She, with the boy, walk barefoot to his house. She presents the cornmeal to his mother and prepares for a three day stay at his home.For three days prior to the wedding, the bride will rise and grind cornmeal for her mother-in-law. During this period, the groom’s paternal aunts visit and “attack” the bride with mud. Her future mother-in-law steps in to protect her.
 

Consumation of the Marriage
On the morning of the wedding the bride’s female relatives brought to the groom’s mother’s home, the ground corn and piki bread that the bride had prepared.
The females then washed the hair of the engaged couple in a single basin. The hair of the bride and groom was then entwined to signify their lifelong union.

With hair still interwoven the bride and groom walk to the edge of the mesa to witness and pray to the rising sun.

Wedding Attire
They remain at the girl’s home until her wedding garment is complete. The garments are woven by the groom and any men in the village who wish to participate. The garments consist of a large belt, two all-white wedding robes, a white wedding robe with red stripes at top and bottom, white buckskin leggings and moccasins, a string for tying the hair, and a reed mat in which to wrap the outfit. (This outfit also will serve as a shroud, since these garments will be necessary for the trip through the underworld.)
Conclusion of the Ceremony
In about two weeks, she will dress in her wedding garments and return to her home where she is received by her mother and relatives. The groom’s relatives accompany her and an exchange of gifts are made. During that evening, the groom comes and spends the night at his mother-in-law’s. The next day he fetches wood for her, and from then on is a permanent resident in her house.
Algonquin Traditions
Algonquin speaking people include the Cree, the Ojibwa or Chippewa, the Ottawa, the Montagnais, the Naskapi and others.When a young man chooses a mate in the old way, he went with her family (matriarch society). The custom was usually determined by the growing season. In warmer climates, where women would raise crops to support the families, they were considered the providers. In cooler climates where families subsisted on hunting performed by the men, the communities were considered patriarchal.

 

Marriage Requirements
The couple may be required to perform certain responsibilities in preparation for their wedding. These responsibilities are determined by the officiant. In addition, the bride and groom must choose sponsors.The bridal couple has four sponsors. Sponsors are older, well respected persons chosen by the bride and groom. The sponsors are to give spiritual and marital guidance to the couple throughout their lifetime. At the ceremony, the sponsors make a commitment to help the couple.
 

The Marriage Ceremony
Ceremonies are preferably outside, or in a ceremonial lodge or under an arbor.Their commitment is to the Creator, to God. There is no breaking that commitment, and no divorce.
The Pipe Carrier, the officiant, makes sure they are well aware of this commitment. If the couple separates and goes their separate ways, in the eyes of the Creator, they are still husband and wife. The Pipe Carrier will not perform the ceremony unless the couple is very serious.

Each person makes a declaration that they choose to be known as husband and wife. Then they smoke from the pipe. Tobacco is offered and accepted by the officiant.

At the ceremony, the sponsors make a commitment to help the couple.

 

Wedding Attire
Brides, grooms and sponsors dress in regalia – traditional clothing, usually made by hand. The bride will wash herself in a body of water (lake, river, ocean, pond) the morning of her union in order to be blessed by the spirit of the Earth.
Wedding Festivities
A wedding is a time of celebration. Everyone is invited by word of mouth unless they live outside the community. There is no formal invitation. There is feasting, visiting and a giveaway.
The Feast
Food items for the feast include fry bread, venison (deer meat), squash, beans, corn, corn soup, potato soup and many desserts. Fresh fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, and the ‘heart’ berry, strawberries, are served if available. There may also be a wedding cake. In a traditional wedding, the food is placed on a blanket, served buffet style.The food is blessed. The Elders and the officiant will eat first, then the bride, groom, sponsors and other guests. None of the food is wasted. All of the food is either eaten or given away to the Elders.
 

The Giveaway
In preparation for the Giveaway, the future bride and groom make (or buy) hundreds of gifts. A gift will be given to each person attending the celebration. The type of gifts is dependant upon the talent and financial ability of the couple.
Wedding Prayer

Known commonly as the ‘Apache Wedding Prayer’, ‘Indian Wedding Blessing’, and other variants, the following is a prayer commonly recited at weddings in the United States. We have learned fromwww.wikipedia.org that it is not associated with any particular religion. It was written for the 1950 Western movie Broken Arrow and has no known connection to the traditions of the Apache or any other Native American group. We include this because you may be looking for it.

Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there is no more loneliness,
For each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two bodies,
But there is only one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place
To enter into the days of your togetherness
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.
Old Cherokee Wedding Traditions

The Cherokee wedding ceremony is a very beautiful event, whether it is the old fashoned, or ‘ancient’ ceremony or a modern one. The original ceremony differed from clan to clan and community to community, but basically used the same ritual elements.

Because clanship is matrilineal in the Cherokee society, it is forbidden to marry within one’s own clan. Because the woman holds the family clan, she is represented at the ceremony by both her mother (or clan mother) and oldest brother. The brother stands with her as his vow to take the responsibility of teaching the children in spiritual and religious matters, as that is the traditional role of the ‘uncle’ (e-du-tsi). In ancient times, they would meet at the center of the townhouse, and the groom gave the bride a ham of venison while she gave an ear of corn to him, then the wedding party danced and feasted for hours on end. Venison symbolized his intention to keep meat in the household and her corn symbolized her willing to be a good Cherokee housewife. The groom is accompanied by his mother.

After the sacred spot for the ceremony has been blessed for seven consecutive days, it is time for the ceremony. The bride and groom approach the sacred fire, and are blessed by the priest and/or priestess. All participants of the wedding, including guests are also blessed. Songs are sung in Cherokee, and those conducting the ceremony bless the couple. Both the Bride and Groom are covered in a blue blanket. At the right point of the ceremony, the priest or priestess removes each blue blanket, and covers the couple together with one white blanket, indicating the beginning of their new life together.

Wedding Vases

Native American Wedding VasesA wedding vase is traditionally used by Native American couples in the Southwest but it is being used increasingly by couples everywhere drawn to the culture’s spirituality and reverence for nature, the earth, and the environment.

Sea and Sky Wedding vase by Geraldine Vail, Navajo Indian ArtistDuring the ceremony each person drinks from a spout to symbolize both individuality and unity. The Sea and Sky Vase is one-of-a-kind, (shown on the left) hand etched and hand painted in New Mexico. It measures 8″ tall and is signed by the artist Geraldine Vail, a Navajo Indian.

It is important to know that these vases are made to hold liquid for a very short period of time. The vase should be emptied and dried promptly after the ceremony and should never be used as a vessel for liquid which will destroy the vase.


Tipis
 

A tipi (also teepee, tepee) is a conical tent originally made of animal skins or birch bark and popularized by the Native Americans of the Great Plains. The dwelling was remarkably durable, and gave warmth and comfort to its inhabitants during harsh winters, was dry during heavy rains, and cool during the heat of summers. It was portable, which was an important factor since most Plains Indians were highly mobile, and could be broken down and packed away quickly when a tribe decided to move, and could be constructed just as quickly when a tribe settled an area. Native Americans from places other than the Great Plains built different types of dwellings.The word “tipi” comes into English from the Lakota language; the word thípi consists of two elements: the verb thí, meaning “to dwell,” and a pluralizing enclitic (a suffix-like ending that marks the subject of the verb as plural), pi, and means “they dwell.” In Lakota, formal verbs can be used as nouns, and this is the case with thípi, which in practice just means “house.” From Wikipedia.org.
All tipis (featured here) are handmade, adhering to the original craftsmanship of creating a variety of nomadic shelters, using the highest quality materials.

This is a progressive class and if you have not already been educated in the introduction of dark arts, applicants will have to take a placement exam.

)O(~~~LoP Mini Candle Magic Class Description~~~)O(

Instructor~RavenCat

Welcome!
I'm RavenCat and I'll be your instructor for this course. I am a solitary witch, ordained by the Fellowship of Isis and an ordained non-denominational Inter-Faith minister with the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry. I don’t have an exact time to indicate when I began on this Path of the Craft, however, it has been with me since childhood. I’m excited to be able to share in a part of your journey!

Candle Magick is a valuable tool in spellwork, meditation, prayer as well as in healing to mention a few areas. By blending the use of wax, herbs and oils, symbols, signals, gestures and words you are directing a symphony of powerful energies to manifest your intention.

Candlelight is magickal and brings warmth
and sets the mood.
Candles have been associated with myth,
lore, superstition, spells and been long used
for divination's and rituals, to intensify the
energies while performing magickal work.
Each color of the candles represents a
specific intent and combined with a spell,
will bring forth strength within our magick.
By using the proper candle color,
engraving a small symbol onto a candle or
by adding herbs and essential oils,
we create candle magick and when we
are using our special prepared candles
with our spells and rituals, we are adding
extra strength and energy to our magickal
work.

In this Class you will learn to incorporate
candle magick into your every day magick.

~~~All mini classes cost $40.00 and there are no refunds once the class starts~~~

This is a 4 week course

Horoscopes for Tuesday, February 10

 

 

Aries Horoscope
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
We’ve spoken in the past about how action causes reaction. Does it work the other way around? Can our reaction to something govern or influence our action toward it? The answer is, undoubtedly. There are times though where we know our reaction is inappropriate so what does this say about our action? Ah, there, as they say, is the ‘rub’. Whilst you might react in a way you might deem inappropriate to a situation now, there is a way you can ensure your action is very appropriate.

 
Taurus Horoscope
(Apr 20 – May 20)
We’re all very resourceful when we have to be. Think, for example, how resourceful someone stranded on a desert island soon becomes. If they have limited supplies and no knowledge of how long they must make them last or are aware of how much they need to appreciate what they do have available, then they soon become very resourceful. Avoid looking at what you believe to be missing in your world now. With imagination and patience, you can find what you have is plenty enough to make something wonderful happen now.

 
Gemini Horoscope
(May 21 – Jun 20)
If we tell ourselves something enough times, then we will eventually believe it. Can the same be said about something told to us? If we have reservations about what we’re being told initially, then surely these never leave us entirely. It might be worth reflecting upon reservations you had when someone told you something some time ago and how, now that it’s rearing its head again, your hesitancy to believe it then might still be valid. Someone else’s apparent belief might be a façade.

 
Cancer Horoscope
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Children are quite happy to wear water wings or other potentially life-saving apparatus whilst swimming. They wear them because they don’t know any differently. They’re told to wear them and once focus gets made on fun that can be had in water, become oblivious to them. The same can be said about how protected you are in an area of your world now. You might have had to experience slight discomfort to receive it but this has waned in favor of comfort and reassurance now coming your way.

 
Leo Horoscope
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
In your world now, it’s not what you say, it’s the way that you say it. And what is the best or most effective way to say what you need to say? The answer is, say as little as possible. What’s needed now is your ability to let someone else do the talking and for you to take on board the very clear message they’re making to you. Allow them to do this. Do them the courtesy of speaking without interruption. You stand to gain something valuable from doing so.

 
Virgo Horoscope
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Some people are skilled at telling us what they know we want to hear. They can be so skilled that they learn to look for specific reactions from us and when they see what they need to see, this enables them to put forth an even more convincing argument or point. It appears someone in your world knows how to ‘read’ you in a similar way. Pay close attention to a point being made with great levels of conviction and then be prepared to show wariness toward it.

 
Libra Horoscope
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Don’t underestimate what a small shift in attitude can do in terms of bringing a very big change. You might believe that a ‘very big change’ is the last thing you’d want to experience but what if the change itself was one that you dearly wanted to see? For some time, you’ve resigned yourself to the fact that a situation is stalemate or had reached a point where progress was unlikely. By adopting a fresh attitude or approach, you can make a real difference. Abandon previous thinking wherever it has caused you to believe you are stuck in some way.

 
Scorpio Horoscope
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
We know we can sometimes do the ‘right’ thing for the ‘wrong’ reasons. It is possible to do the ‘wrong’ thing for the ‘right’ reasons? We know that, should we do the ‘wrong’ thing for a ‘right’ reason, then it usually done to help someone else. Such action is often made altruistically. Your keenness to support someone might cause you to question whether or not what you’re doing is ‘morally acceptable’. Be certain you have thought through fully the implications of what you’re considering doing.

 
Sagittarius Horoscope
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Some people are certain they work best under pressure. They thrive where imminent deadlines loom. They crave the element of risk attached to doing something at the last minute. Often, such people do what they need to do but can they honestly say they did a better job than if they had more time on their side? That’s arguable. Where you can, apply patience and discipline. Something needs both and a ‘quick fix’ simply won’t do on this occasion.

 

 

Capricorn Horoscope
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
If you’re sensing you’re being pulled in numerous directions or a dilemma seems to have numerous strings attached to it, then welcome whatever seems confusing or daunting about it. Before something in your world can become clearer, it needs to become a little bit more complex first. This is exactly what’s happening now and it is not intended to confuse you. It is intended to encourage you to focus your attention on what truly inspires you. Once this happens, a way forward will become clearer.

 
Aquarius Horoscope
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
There are times when we discover, to our increased frustration, problems within problems. We see one issue clearly and through tackling it, then discover it comprises numerous other, smaller issues that make up the one big one we’re dealing with. Does this mean we ought to focus on dealing with all the smaller problems in the hope of eventually resolving the bigger one? Focus your attention on the one issue that demands it and you can trust that, by doing so, you will free yourself from other associated issues in one fell swoop.

 
Pisces Horoscope
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
If it is reassurance you want and need, then trust that it’s coming. Before it can arrive properly though, a certain process needs to play itself out. That’s a bit like watching the annoying adverts that we have to view on social media sites that we can ‘skip’ after a brief period of time. You might be finding yourself impatient to get to the bit you want to see but can trust that the frustrating distraction you’re experiencing is temporary. Frustration will soon give way to relief.

Waning Moon 
This is the period when the moon journeys from Full to New moon. Casting spells for removing problems, eliminating trouble, neutralizing adversaries and causing harm is most affective when the moon is on the wane. Protection spells for yourself, your loved ones, home and material possessions are also best cast at this time. It is also a time when our bodies are most susceptible to cleansing, so it is a good time to cleanse yourself through the process of detoxification. This can be best achieved through healing and herbal remedies, such as healing teas. Diet and exercise also become easier during this time and results tend to last longer.

YOU NEED: black candle, water and a black bowlPLACE THE CANDLE INTO THE BLACK BOWL, FIX THE CANDLE TO THE BOWL USING THE  WAX DRIPPINGS FROM THE CANDLE SO THAT IT STANDS ALONE. FILL THE BOWL TO THE RIM WITH FRESH WATER, WITHOUT WETTING THE WICK. BREATHE DEEPLY AND MEDITATE FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES. WHEN YOUR MIND IS  CLEAR, LIGHT THE CANDLE. VISUALIZE THE POWER OF THE SPELL CAST AGAINST YOU AS LIVING WITHIN THE CANDLES FLAME. AS THE CANDLE BURNS DOWN, IT WILL SPLUTTER AND GO OUT AS IT TOUCHES THE WATER. AS IT IS EXTINGUISHED BY THE WATER, THE SPELL IS BROKEN. FINALLY, DIG A HOLE IN TO THE GROUND, POUR THE WATER INTO IT, THEN BURY THE CANDLE.

Be Blessed Today and Cast With Conscious Care!
