~*Spell for Today.........Prosperity*~


DEBT BANISHING SPELL

Supplies:

*Rolled parchment, 2 inches wide and as long as you like

*One black pen

*One purple candle Oil of your choice

*Incense of your choice

Cleanse and consecrate all supplies with the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water).

List all your debts on the parchment. Draw a banishing pentacle on the back of the parchment. Carve a banishing pentacle on the candle. Place the rolled parchment in the candle holder then tighten the candle on top. Think of banishing your debts. Think of the feeling of happiness and relief when the debts are banished.

Light the candle. Take the candle to the East quarter and ask that the Sylphs send your message of debt-banishment out to the universe in a safe and protective way, and ask that prosperity return to you in the same manner. Put the candle back on the altar and, in your own words, ask Juno to banish the debt and replace with prosperous energy. Allow the candle to burn completely. The paper will catch fire, so watch what type of holder you are using (glass will break) and that the candle holder is on a fire-safe surface.

As the candle burns, concentrate on banishing your debts, your feelings of relief and happiness, and the coming prosperity. 

Cast With Care!

Be Blessed,

~*~ Your Daily Fortunes for Wednesday January 14th, 2014~*~

Tarot~Temperance
What is traditionally known as the Temperance card is a reference to the Soul. Classically female, she is mixing up a blend of subtle energies for the evolution of the personality. One key to interpreting this card can be found in its title, a play on the process of tempering metals in a forge. 
Metals must undergo extremes of temperature, folding and pounding, but the end product is infinitely superior to impure ore mined from the earth. In this image, the soul volunteers the ego for a cleansing and healing experience which may turn the personality inside-out, but which brings out the gold hidden within the heart. 

Witches Rune~The Birds - Keywords: Unexpected news, change.

Meanings: The Birds Rune means some unexpected news that may alter your life completely. Especially if this is the leading rune. Generally the news will lead to a positive change but pay close attention to the nearest runes to determine its nature. It can also mean news of friends or family that you haven't had contact with in quite a while. Letters and documents should be watched for as they may well bring happiness.

Norse Odin Rune Spread~
 
The Distant Past
    Elhaz
Watch for hidden traps. Look for holes in your defenses and fill them.
The Recent Past
    Laguz
Laguz is the feminine Rune. It denotes a deep sexuality and fertility. Laguz also represents that which is ever changing and renewal. You may be in a tremendous spiritual growth period.
The Present
    Dagaz
Dagaz represents the fresh light of a new day. You are close to making a breakthrough. You have the will to change whatever you deem necessary. You may see the world with absolute clarity at this time.
Near Future
    Othala
Othala represents a solid, immovable home, prosperity and safety. Good fortune based on your heritage and character is yours to enjoy.
Distant Future
    
Totem Animal~Bat

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

Horoscopes~
We are caught in a struggle between wanting change and clinging to the status quo. Clever Mercury connects with experimental Uranus, inspiring ingenious ideas. But sweet Venus aligns with stabilizing Saturn, encouraging conservative behavior. However, the transformational Scorpio Moon catalyzes our feelings so we can make a commitment either way. Thankfully, active Mars heats up intuitive Pisces to move us beyond the limits of rational thought.

Aries Horoscope
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You seem to be growing increasingly impatient each day, especially if someone is more interested in getting to the bottom of your current feelings than moving on to whatever happens next. You might feel as if you’re trapped. Nevertheless, investing your time to delve into an emotional issue might be exactly what the doctor ordered. Set aside your desire for personal satisfaction for a couple of days. Finish up old relationship business now before distracting yourself with something shiny and new.

Taurus Horoscope
(Apr 20 – May 20)
Your emotions may not be apparent to others now, but that doesn’t make them any less important. An old memory that’s buried in a hidden corner of your mind has unexpected power over your unconscious actions. Fortunately, a friend or partner should be able to help you explore the shadows of your past, but you must be willing to stick with the issues as they surface today. Don’t avoid the unknown because your current vulnerability can lead to exciting emotional growth.

Gemini Horoscope
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You might feel threatened by a coworker’s competitive nature today as the primal Scorpio Moon intensifies already raw emotions and lessens your interest in playing fair. You are postured to defend your territory, even if you haven’t been personally attacked. Thankfully, you can discover the truth before any open hostilities are exchanged. There is nothing in particular that you must do to experience the healing energy now. Luckily, a change of heart opens the door to closer relationships at work.

Cancer Horoscope
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Your fear of rejection makes you feel uncomfortable about sharing your innermost thoughts with others. A cluster of planets in sympathetic Pisces urges you to take your emotions more seriously. You crave intimacy, but you might not be ready for that level of emotional disclosure yet. Meanwhile, you are eager to grow professionally in your craft. Thankfully, concentrating on your career objectives might be the perfect distraction for now.

Leo Horoscope
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You love the notion of being close to someone special, but still prefer to keep the energy lighthearted today. However, competent Mars is approaching dreamy Neptune in your 8th House of Deep Sharing, instigating an inner conflict between your desire for intimacy and your fear of vulnerability. The fact of the matter is you won’t be satisfied now by keeping things on a superficial level. Don’t try to rationalize your actions; instead, give yourself permission to follow your heart rather than your head.

Virgo Horoscope
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You take quiet pride in being able to analyze the dynamics of a situation and create an effective plan that’s beneficial for all. However, several planets are traveling through diffusive Pisces now, making it more difficult to determine which information is useful. Instead of obsessing about what you don’t know, nurture significant relationships based upon your feelings. But be careful not to overreact; getting too immersed in the details now could lead you to miss the most obvious solutions to your current dilemma. Open your eyes and your heart at the same time.

Libra Horoscope
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Your world may be settling down now, after a few days of lunar instability. But it’s challenging, nonetheless, to keep your spirits up when sobering Saturn is in the picture. You are ultra-serious today; even if opportunities abound, you might grow discouraged by an apparent lack of success. Nevertheless, maintain consistency in your daily routine because it will eventually bring you the satisfaction you seek. Flaunting your creativity is good for your soul, but it’s more rewarding to play by the rules for the next several days, instead.

Scorpio Horoscope
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your own thoughts might overwhelm you today until you stop resisting the shifting emotional tides. Fluctuating moods complicate your interpersonal communication as the inconstant Moon visits your sign, making it difficult to know how long any emotion will last before transforming into something else. Don’t waste your time or energy endlessly worrying about things that are out of your control. The future depends on your willingness to embrace the unknown.

Sagittarius Horoscope
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Although you might be afraid that you’re approaching the end of a road, you are also at the start of something new. Instead of trying to stop the inevitable, finish what you can while the powerful Scorpio Moon is activating your 12th House of Destiny. Practicing detachment makes sense now because you need to let go of your previous expectations. However, you may not be able to do it by yourself, so accept assistance when it’s offered. The creative process is enhanced when you lower your defenses and allows others to help.

Capricorn Horoscope
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Your friends may be shocked when they learn of your unorthodox perspective. However, you’re so focused on reaching your goals now that you’re not worried about anyone else’s expectations. Nevertheless, you don’t like it if others try to give you direction and you might fight back if they push too hard. Nevertheless, it isn’t worth turning an ally into an enemy, even if you have to temporarily downplay your plans to avoid conflict. Your willingness to compromise can end up saving the day.

Aquarius Horoscope
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Normally, you’re not one to succumb to peer pressure, yet people seem to be offering you sound financial advice now. But even if you don’t have a solid plan in place, you still prefer to figure it out on your own rather than using someone else’s solution. It’s one thing to show everyone that you’re an independent thinker, but you can demonstrate your real intelligence today by listening to those who have your best interests at heart. Make the most strategic decision you can, no matter where the idea originates.

Pisces Horoscope
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You are inclined to take radical measures once again. The intensity can present problems because several planets in imaginative Pisces blur the fine line between being spiritually inspired and losing yourself in a fantasy. Thankfully, you receive a reality check from practical Saturn, preventing your visions of the future from floating off into the clouds. Don’t be afraid to dream; just make sure you stay anchored to the earth when you travel.

Be Blessed Today!

Learning a Lesson - not to careless about anything negative !
When you know the destination you don't care about having a bumpy journey
 
When you know the destination you don't care about any problems along the way, in fact if things go too smoothly you begin to get worried and suspicious - as it seems too good to be true - and because the journey become BORING. Therefore encountering challenges are actually good for you - as it also allows you to check what you're doing is right or wrong - and make any minor corrections - and it creates some excitement along the BORING journey.
 
Due to the current lunar phase - at the end of it's cycle - during Moon in Scorpio - you might feel INTROVERT - but not in a sad or depressing way - but in a good way - as you will be happy and content from WITHIN yourself. Moon in Scorpio will make you feel PROTECTED in your own world - and even though lots of things will be happening - NOTHING will bother nor distract you.
 
In fact, I must insert an important point and that's due to the tragic events during the past few weeks, the terrorist in Sydney, Australia, the bombers at the childrens' School in Peshawar, the terrorists in Paris - or even the daily news of terrorists in Syria, Nigeria or Iraq who are daily murdering innocent people by blowing themselves up - each of these events might have touched you - some touched you more than others - other events you've forgotten about and don't really care.
Don't worry that you DON'T care - it's not your karma to care - as your emotions aren't meant to care. You could say the same with Gipsies and beggars you see on the street - many of whom - you DON'T care - whilst one or two that attract your attention - you DO care and always give them something. It's not that you're a BAD person because you DON'T care - it's simply - your soul isn't wanting you to care - so it detaches your emotions from anything it doesn't want you to care about. Does that make sense ?
 
The reason I mentioned this - is during Moon in Scorpio - due to significant astrological shifts created by both 12th January: Mars entered Pisces & 13th January: Pluto out of it's shadow at 13°35' Capricorn - you're going to be pleasantly surprised on Wednesday - when you realize that you have NEW feelings for some things and NO MORE feelings for other things. These NEW things you will have strong inner feelings for - are karmic - destiny is giving you the feelings in order to create a NEW change in the direction of your life.

Be blessed today!

Wednesday: Mercury; Great for communication (worldly or otherwise). Good for spells involving the granting of information. Like Willow in Buffy when she says "Reveal!"

***Spell of the Day***

Communication Spell

 

 

If communication has broken down, or you have lost touch with someone and would love to hear from them again it may be worth trying this spell. You can do this during any moon phase.

You will need a white candle, and a piece of paper and an envelope.

This also works if someone owes you money or has done something to hurt you and you would like them to consider their actions and maybe apologise.

Make sure you are sitting comfortably, light your white candle and on a piece of paper write to the person concerned. Address this just as you would if it was going to be posted. Put absolutely everything down, miss nothing out, however horrible it sounds, you need to release these feelings! Say things that you would not dream of saying normally, if that's what you want to do. No one will ever be seeing the letter. Write down all you would like to say, feelings emotions, resentments annoying bits get it all down. Add their full name and yours plus dates of birth, theirs if you know it. Place the letter under your candle, let the candle burn down and out. (so don’t buy a huge candle)

Next put the letter in an envelope and address it. Place it somewhere where you will see it often. Make sure that there is no danger of someone else posting it! Leave it for at least two weeks, four weeks is better.

This spell works by going through to the person on a psychic level, although their ears may not allow them to listen on an everyday mundane level, they will accept it on a much higher level. It will then be left to them to think about what you have said.

P.S. Make sure your candle is not a very long burner or you will be up all night!

Blessed Be.

~Spell for the Day~

***Protection against harmful spirits***

If you find yourself being attacked or otherwise influenced by an otherworldly spirit or entity, you must seek protection.  This is a three-stage process to rid yourself of the unwanted beings and protect yourself.

1. Protection

If you can, acquire one or more of the following gemstones:

Black Tourmaline
Agate
Bloodstone
Emerald
Labradorite
Black Onyx
Peridot
Emerald

These are crystals that protect you from harmful spirits and psychic intrusion. Black Tourmaline may be the most effective, but any of them would work. If you can find orgonite containing one of these stones, that would be even more effective.

The next step will be to surround yourself with a shield of protective light.  This comes from within, and you can conjure it up yourself through meditation.

Begin each day with sitting down in a quiet space for five minutes, visualising a bright bubble of light around you, reaching about an arm’s length away from your body.  Make it any colour you feel comfortable with.

Repeat the following words: “I surround myself with a shield of protection.  I am safe within my space.”  Feel the light emanating from you, growing brighter with each deep breath.  It is strong and controlled, vibrating at a high frequency.  No evil spirit can penetrate this force field.

Finally, ask your spirit guides, guardian angels and the God and Goddess to protect you.

2. Cleansing

You will then need to cleanse the space where you sense the negative intrusion.  If it follows you around, use these methods around your body.

Burn sage, sandalwood or frankincense.  Sprinkle sea salt around the area.  Repeat the following words:

“Any energy that doesn’t serve me, please leave now.
You don’t belong here.  I am sending you home.
Thank you.”

Say these words, or variations of this nature, until you feel satisfied.

3. Communication

Follow steps 1 and 2.  If they don’t work, you must try to communicate with the spirit.  This can be dangerous, so follow the instructions carefully.

Cast a protective circle.  Sprinkle sea salt around it for extra protection.

Wear or carry your gemstones or orgonites.  Ask them to protect you.

Activate your protective light shield as per step 1.

Then you may speak to the spirit.  Say something along the lines of:

“Spirit who presently resides here.  I am protected and you cannot harm me.  I address you with the utmost respect.

I do not know your reasons for being here, but you are intruding on my/our live(s), and there is nothing for you here.  I am asking you to please leave.  Go back whence you came.  Go home, where you will be at peace.  Thank you.”

When you’re ready, close your circle.

Keep your gemstones or orgonites near you as often as you can.  Whenever you feel like there might be a negative presence, take deep breaths (which strengthens your aura), try to remain calm, visualise the light bubble around you, and ask your guides/angels to stay near and keep you safe.

Be Blessed and Cast With Care!

Amulets & Talismans

An amulet (Latin amulētum) can be any object whose most important characteristic is its alleged power to protect its owner from danger or harm. Amulets are different from talismans as a talisman is believed to bring luck or some other benefit, though it can offer protection as well. Amulets are often confused with pendants—charms that hang from necklaces—any given pendant may indeed be an amulet, but so may any other charm which purports to protect its owner from danger.Potential amulets include gems, especially engraved gems, statues, coins, drawings, pendants, rings, plants and animals; even words in the form of a magical spell or incantation to repel evil or bad luck.The word "amulet" comes from the Latin amuletum; the earliest extant use of the term is in Pliny's Natural History, meaning "an object that protects a person from trouble".

 

 

 

A talisman is an object which is believed to contain certain magical properties which would provide good luck for the possessor and possibly offer protection from evil or harm. The word comes from the Arabic word Tilasm meaning "completion, religious rite". Amulets and talismans are often considered interchangeable despite their differences. An amulet is an object with natural magical properties, whereas a talisman must be charged with magical powers by a creator. The talisman can be created for a specific purpose while an amulet can be used for generic purposes such as protection, averting evil, or attracting good luck.

 

here is some confusion about lucky charms, amulets, and talismans, and many people think they are synonyms. In fact, although the differences are sometimes subtle, each is created for a different purpose: a charm is worn to attract good luck; an amulet provides protection from danger; and a talisman is used to attract a particular benefit to its owner.

 

LUCKY CHARMS
Charms were originally spoken or sung. The word charm comes from the French charme, which means song. The blessing that a priest gives at the end of a service is an example of this sort of charm. But gradually, people came to the conclusion that spoken words were ephemeral, while a solid object was permanent. Objects that had special significance—such as a splinter that was believed to be from the cross of Jesus—replaced sung or spoken charms.

 

Almost anything can (and has been) used as a charm. Buttons and coins are good examples. This is because these items are frequently lost, and found by others. Anything that you find can be used as a charm. Small objects that are given to you also make good charms, because of the pleasant connotations they provide. Many gift stores have a selection of small objects that can be used as charms. 

 

Lucky charms are normally carried on the person, but there are exceptions. My grandmother had a metal tin full of buttons. She would shake the tin vigorously whenever she wanted good luck. I have seen St. Christopher medals attached to the inside mirror of many taxicabs. These drivers obviously prefer to have the medal where they can see it, rather than somewhere on their person.br> The St. Christopher medal is a charm that protects travelers, as St. Christopher is the patron saint of travelers. A series of failures on the US Navy’s Vanguard rocket project in the 1960s was blamed on the absence of a St. Christopher medal. One was placed on the next rocket, and it performed perfectly.

 

A four-leaf clover has always been considered a lucky charm. This old Irish rhyme that explains why:

One leaf is for fame, And one leaf is for wealth, And one is for a faithful lover, And one to bring you glorious health, Are all in the four-leaved clover.

A number of lucky charms have religious significance. Fish have come to symbolize the Christian church, possibly because of the story of Jesus feeding the five thousand. However, the Greek word for fish forms an acronym of the initial letters of “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour” in Greek, and this is a more likely explanation. A fish charm attracts wealth and abundance. 

 

The ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol for everlasting life, and is sometimes known as the cross of life. It provides good luck. It also wards off illness and disease, which means that it can be used as an amulet as well as a charm. 

 

Charm bracelets allow people to wear a number of charms at the same time. Many people have a collection of objects that they use as charms, either singly or together. They do not need to be visible, and can be worn under clothing or carried in a purse, if desired. 

 

AMULETS
Amulets have been worn for protection for thousands of years. Early peoples lived in a world where strange and frightening things occurred that defied explanation. Consequently, amulets were used to protect homes, families, and livestock. 

 

Amulets were also used to protect people from the “evil eye.” The belief that a person or animal could harm another by staring at them with an evil eye dates back at least five thousand years, and ancient clay tablets have been found that describe the damage that the evil eye can inflict. The Sumerian god Ea spent most of his time fighting the evil eye. Even today, in many parts of the world, the evil eye is considered a major threat, and various kinds of amulets are used to avert it. 

 

Amulets were originally natural items, such as an animal’s tooth or a semi-precious stone. However, you can choose anything you like. Medals, bells, keys, and photographs can all be used as amulets. Many police officers in early twentieth-century New York carried St. Jude medals with them for protection. St. Jude is the patron saint of policemen. 

 

Knots make effective amulets because they are believed to catch evil spirits. My grandmother tied knots on all her kitchen aprons to protect both her and the food she was preparing. 

 

Take your time when choosing an amulet. Think about your purpose in wanting one, and how you will wear or carry it. On several occasions, amulets seem to have found me when I needed them. On one occasion, a man I met at an airport gave me a small piece of hematite. I was on my way to see someone to discuss a business proposition. The hematite protected me from his overpowering manner. 

 

TALISMANS
Because talismans are intended to provide power, energy, and specific benefits they are often made at times that are believed to be spiritually or astrologically significant. They are frequently made from stone, metal, or parchment as these substances can easily be inscribed with words or pictures to add additional power. Many talismans come from predatory animals. A leopard’s claw, shark’s tooth, or eagle’s feather, for instance, are believed to endow the wearer with some of the qualities of the animal from which it came. 

 

People in competitive fields, such as sport, frequently have talismans to help them achieve their goals. Vida Blue—a famous Oakland A’s baseball pitcher in the 1970s and 80s—had a special cap that became his talisman. Finally, it became so old and faded that league officials threatened to suspend him if he did not change it. Blue got himself a new cap, and ceremonially burned his old cap at a pre-game ceremony. 

 

The most famous talisman is a six-pointed star, made from two overlapping triangles. The upward pointing triangle symbolizes fire, the sky, and male energy. The downward pointing triangle symbolizes water, earth, and female energy. The power of this talisman is such that mystic Arthur Edward Waite wrote: “Nothing was believed impossible for those who possessed it.” (A. E. Waite, The Occult Sciences [Secaucus, NJ: University Books, 1974], 111). As the Star of David, this talisman symbolizes both the Jewish religion and the nation of Israel. It is also known as the Seal of Solomon because King Solomon is believed to have used it. However, it predates his time by hundreds of years.

 

GEMSTONES AS AMULETS AND TALISMANS
Crystals and gemstones have been used as amulets and talismans for thousands of years. In fact, it is believed that people wore earrings and necklaces before they started wearing clothes. During the Crusades, many soldiers carried talismanic stones carved with runic messages. They also carriedbloodstones because this type of stone was associated with Mars, the god of war. The soldiers felt that bloodstones would make them brave in battle and protect them from harm. 

 

The best crystal or gemstone to use is one that appeals to you. It might be a stone that you find, purchase, or receive as a gift. You might like the color, shape, size, or texture of a particular stone. It might be your astrological birthstone. If you sense that it is the right stone for you, you should use it.

 

I choose most of my gemstones by psychometry. I hold the stone in a loosely clenched fist, or between my cupped palms, and experience the sensations the stone provides. Some stones produce feelings of comfort and peace, while others seem angry and aggressive. Many stones appear to be filled with fun and laughter, but a few appear sad. I choose the amulet or talisman I need by finding a stone that has the right feeling for the purpose I have in mind. 

 

There are many other ways of choosing the correct gemstone, including one derived from your date of birth. You need to create a sum of your month, day and year of birth, and then reduce it down to a single digit. Unfortunately, there is an exception. If you come across an 11 or a 22 as you reduce down to a single digit, stop at that point, as they are called Master numbers. Here is an example for someone born on December 9, 1946

 

12 + 9 +1946 = 1967

 

We then add up the 1967: 1 + 9 + 6 + 7 = 23. Finally, we add the 2 and 3 together, which gives us 5. 

 

Here is an example that gives us a Master number: February 29, 1944: 2 + 29 + 1944 = 1975

 

When we add up 1 + 9 + 7 + 5, we get 22. Because 22 is a Master number, we stop at that point, and do not reduce it any further. 

 

Each number relates to a color:

1. RED: Red stones relate to passion, enthusiasm, and energy. Examples are ruby, garnet, and red jasper.
2. ORANGE: Orange stones relate to close relationships and personal satisfaction. Examples are citrine, carnelian, and orange sapphire.

HOW TO CHARGE YOUR TALISMAN
Once you have chosen a talisman, it must be charged to fill it with power and energy. Talismans are important magical tools that need to be dedicated to you and your specific goals. The best time to charge your talisman is when the moon is waxing. Bathe and change into clean clothes before charging your talisman. Some magicians prefer to be naked for this ceremony, as it exposes the talisman to more of their personal energy fields. 

 

There are many different ways to charge a talisman, and I have included seven of these methods inAmulets and Talismans for Beginners. The Dedication Method is one of these, and has the advantage of being easy to perform. You will need a room that will not be occupied for several hours after you have charged your talisman. You will also need a table or shelf to act as an altar. 

 

Place your talisman on the altar. Stand in front of it, and thank the universal life force for protecting and guiding you. After this, recite a poem that you enjoy. Naturally, it should be serious in nature. You might choose to write a poem especially for this ritual. 

 

Once you have finished reciting the poem, stare at your talisman for thirty seconds, and then speak to it. Here are the words I use:

I empower and consecrate you for (whatever purpose the talisman is designed to perform). I imbue you with all the powers of the universe to enable you to carry out your task, and I thank you in advance for all the energy, power, and comfort that you offer to me.

Gaze at the talisman for another thirty seconds, and then say “thank you” to it. Spread your arms out wide and look upwards, while saying “thank you” again. 

 

Leave the talisman on the altar for as long as possible. Leave the room quietly, and ensure that the room is not used for at least several hours. 

 

Your talisman is now ready for use. It will serve you faithfully, and the properties you imbued into it will last forever. This is not always desirable and, once your goal has been achieved, you will need to de-activate the talisman. Most of the time, you will be able to do this by destroying the talisman, after thanking it sincerely for helping you. If the talisman can be burned, you can create a small ritual using a candle. Light the candle and stand in front of it holding the talisman in your cupped hands. Acknowledge the archangels in the four cardinal directions by bowing to them, starting in the east, and following with the south, west, and north. Thank the talisman for everything it has done, hold it high in the air for a few moments, and then burn it in the candle flame. 

 

Obviously, you will not be able to do this if the talisman cannot be burned. However, you can still thank it, break it, and then bury it in the ground. If the talisman is made of a valuable substance, such as gold or silver, you can remove the talismanic influences by formally thanking it for three days in a row. 

 

ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS
If you wear a talisman for financial success, your subconscious mind will work toward this goal and bring financial opportunities to your attention. In this instance, it could be said that your belief in the talisman is providing the necessary power to allow the process to work. Certainly, there is no point in wearing a talisman of any sort if you do not believe in it. This is because your skepticism would override the talisman’s programming. There have been instances where this has caused misfortune to whoever wore certain talismans. The famous Hope Diamond caused misery and harm to everyone who owned it. 

 

Experiment with a variety of charms, amulets, and talismans and see what happens. I believe that you will gain more self-assurance, power, and control over every aspect of your life. This is because you will be harnessing the powers of the universe to attract what you want, and to repel what you don’t want. Use them for good, and create the life you deserve.

Herbcrafting

 

If you want to diagnose illness and prescribe medications (even herbal ones) go to med school or chiropractic. These are jobs for doctors.

If you've ruled out being a doctor, and want to become a herb crafter or herbalist, try to find a practitioner of the old ways and become an apprentice. Learn to like washing and sterilizing bottles. And learn to like being told exactly what to do and when to do it.

If you've decided you want to learn on your own, there are some books you'll need. First, a book such as Peterson's Field Guide to Medicinal Plants -- this you'll need to take with you when you go into the woods and meadows so you can identify the different plants. In the beginning, that is ALL you'll be doing. Many plants look like many others and even with the book, it is sometimes difficult to tell the difference. And the differences can be very great. One plant may be totally harmless and the other deadly. If you have any question at all in your mind, get to know a botanist or some other like professional to help you. The next book you'll need is a good Materia Medica. This will tell you the plant's properties and what it is used for. Don't worry about it now, you won't need it until you are very, very sure of what the plants look like. Of course, you can always grow your own, which is an acceptable alternative, but there are quite a few plants that don't do well in captivity and can only be found in the wild.

Once you've spent a few years with the above, you will be ready to start making things. Tinctures and tonics, teas and possets, compresses and salves. There are two schools of thought here. The first, mine (among others) is that simple is best. Why worry about how different plants react to each other, on top of how they are going to react with human ingestion. Stick with one or two that are known to work, especially if they are known to work together. This becomes doubly important when you come to the experimenting stage. Even if the plants are known to do certain things, and what their effect on they body is, a good herbalist will try his or her medicines first before ever giving them to anyone else. So you learn to be really, REALLY careful about those plants that look like each other *s*

Throughout this entire process, you will continue to read and to search out plants. Every day there are new books out there and new theories on what the plants do. Currently, one of the best books that you should get if you are truly serious about being a herbalist is the "Physician's Desk Reference for Herbal Medicines". It costs about $50.00, but if its important enough, you'll find the money. Or spend a lot of time at the library.

Learning herb crafting is NOT something you do once in a while. It is a full-time job and honestly doesn't pay well. Its hard to find places to learn, although some junior colleges and technical colleges are starting to offer classes. This is something you do because you really want to. Its hard work. VERY hard work. You will have to give up things -- like a social life -- in order to become good at it. For that matter, even mediocre herbalists have given up a lot. Don't enter this lightly. Think it through thoroughly and know that it is for you.

Herbal Preparations: They’re All Safe, Right?

Wrong. Not all of them are safe. In fact, many are just plain deadly. How many times have you been involved in a conversation where someone says they have a headache and another tells them to try willowbark tea. Without once asking about allergies, other medications, and current illnesses. If the person you just recommended that to is taking blood thinners such as Coumadin, willowbark can be deadly. If the person is younger and has the flu or possibly chicken pox, Reye's Syndrome is a very real complication of that person using willowbark.

As far as chamomile goes, yes, it is a very safe herb. Unfortunately, some people are allergic to it. Chamomile is in the same family as ragweed. If someone has an allergy involving ragweed, there is a possibility that they may be allergic to chamomile as well.

Lately, the herbal "drug" I've been seeing touted as the "miracle" cure has been St. John's Wort for depression. A couple of things wrong with this. First, unless it is prepared correctly, St. John's Wort is dangerous. It is a poisonous plant, and if you use the wrong parts or too much of it, you will be very sick or possibly dead. Of course, then you won't really have to worry about that depression, now will you? Second, it is clinically proven to NOT WORK for clinical depression of long standing, so it really isn't the drug of choice for treating chronic, clinical depression. Third, for mild depression, it works the same way as Prozac and the MAOI’s. This means that if either of these classes of drugs (or specific drug) do not work for you, then neither will St. John’s Wort. This is one of the drugs you need to discuss with your doctor. Don't take advice over the 'net on this one.

There are dangers in suggesting herbal remedies to people. I have yet to hear the dime-store herbalists ask about pre-existing conditions or about other medications. The two examples I set forth above are among many that are very possible in this day of the Internet and chat rooms and public message boards. Anyone can get just enough information to make them extremely dangerous.

Advice? If someone suggests that you take something without asking any questions, don't take it. At least, don't take it without consulting someone who really knows what they are talking about. It might just save your life.

Collection and Storage of Herbs

If you know your herbs well enough to collect them, or if you grow them yourself, there are some things to keep in mind when harvesting.

First, early in the day is the best time for most herbs. After the dew is gone, but before the sun is too high (typically, around 9:30 or 10:00 A.M. is a good time). Second, some herbs need to be harvested before they flower and go to seed, some the flowers are what you use and others you harvest the seeds or after they have cast their seeds. Still others, you need to use the root, and there are quite a few where you use the whole plant. This information is found in various sources and not something I'm going to address here as there is too much information to put down here.

If you are harvesting from the wild remember to never take more and 1/4 to 1/3 of the plants in any given area if you take the whole plant -- stripping an area of a plant is not good for the ecology and will also leave you high and dry should you ever want to harvest it again. This goes for those you have grown yourself as well. Most herbs come back year after year as long as you leave some. As time goes by, you’ll discover that most have spread and you’ll have to do some cutting back if you don’t harvest. Goldenseal and American Ginseng (wild, not cultivated) are two examples of over-harvesting. Both are almost impossible to find in the wild. The last thing you want is to contribute to the extinction of a plant. Also, you need to find out if it is indeed okay to harvest in any given area. Harvesting herbs in a State or National Park area is probably not a legal thing to do. If it is private property, make sure you have the permission of the owner of the property.

Back to task here . . . If you are harvesting more than one type of plant, whether wild or cultivated, take along several brown paper bags -- the kind used to lunches -- and a marker. You will want to mark the outside of the bag with the name of the contents. Also, some brightly painted wooden popsicle sticks to mark the area where you've harvested so you don't come back in two weeks and re-harvest the same area. Determine before you start whether you will be using the fresh plants or if you will be drying them. If you plan on using the fresh plant, do not take any more than you plan on using in two days. Fresh herbs for cooking or teas or medicines are best used very quickly.

Once you have your harvest done and are home the first thing you do is wash the plant material you have acquired. Gently, now, many are very fragile. Wash them under running water just to get the dirt off. If you suspect that there has been pesticide use nearby, there is a commercial product available (whose name escapes me) that can be used to clean them in a dish of cold water. Once you are done washing and picking off bugs, wilted leaves, etc., gently shake them to remove excess water and hang them in a cool, dry place to dry. Its a good idea to suspend them inside plain brown paper bags (put some holes in the bags for circulation) as then when leaves fall as they dry, and some will, they will be contained. (Do the paper bag thing once you know there is no water left from washing the plants.)

Once the plants are dried, which can take a while depending on the weather and conditions (at least a week to ten days and up to 3 weeks for some. You can dry them in the oven. Information on this can be gotten from your local University Extension office or Agriculture Department), they are ready for storage. Dried herbs can be stored indefinitely as long as they are kept in airtight containers in a cool, dry, dark room. The benefits of dried herbs are ease of use, use when the fresh plant is unavailable and generally the properties they were harvested for (for medicinal purposes) will be more concentrated. Of course, there are some that are best used fresh. Once dried, they can be used to make teas, tinctures, salves, possets, compresses, just about anything.

Before you embark on a large-scale harvest and drying project, make sure of a few things first. (1) That you have enough room. (2) That the plants you plan on harvesting can be used dried -- there are some that are only good fresh. (3) That this is something you really want to do. You don't really want to walk into a room one day and wonder what's all that stuff hanging from the ceiling?

The Magick of Plants & Herbs

Plant magic is an age old tradition dating back to ancient Egyptian times, plant magic has been used for many purposes such as healing, self empowerment, love spells and protection, each plant has its own magical properties and strengths and can be used to add power to any kind of spell, plant magic will have the desired result regardless of the strength of the caster due to the fact the plants themselves have high levels of magical properties contained within. With its multiple uses and the speed and effectiveness of its power plant magic is one of the most popular arts used today.

Witches are not the only ones who have been using herbs and plants for healing, nowadays it is common practice in most alternative medicines to use a variety of herbs and plants for healing, most dietary products or heath food supplements used today are based around certain plants and herbs, Eucalyptus for a sore throat, coffee beans for a headache.

A simple method to enhance any spell is to sprinkle specific herbs into the flame of a candle during your ritual this will add extra power to your spells. Other magic that can be done with herbs is leave small amounts of herbs around your home this can remove negative energies, offer protection, bring happiness, promote good heath and bring a peaceful energy within. Once a common practice was to carry a charm bag with a variety of herbs to bring about many things such as a protection or to attract love. It is an old lore that the best time to perform plant magic or collect herbs is at night especially under the full moon it said the plants and herbs are at their most powerful at these times.

Over the years the witches began to use codes in their workings, hence now you hear off eye of newt and tongue of dog which are codes for very simple and attainable flowers and plants. The witches would have a great old laugh about the unsuspecting fool who stumbled upon their recipes and went on searching for the ingredients, battling for a lions hearts, a bulls horn, a mother’s milk and an Englishman’s foot. The most famous reference of using plants and codes is William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth
he quotes

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Though he is not talking about animals he’s referring to simple plant and herbs.

All herbs have a particular vibration and are mixed in such a way that when they are used they bring the body into balance, as all ailments occur when your body is out of balance, the possibilities when using herbal magic is unlimited, or only limited by your imagination. It is also important when using herbs to use your intuition, to be guided by what is right for you, much like the crystal chooses you, so are there certain herbs that will work well with your biological makeup. If you are ingesting herbs such as in herbal tea make sure that you know that the herb you are using is actually edible.

Edward Bach, the well known Bach flower remedialist, maintained that all flowers and plants have a frequency and it is important to choose the correct frequency for your particular ailment.

Create a magical spiritual garden for yourself and practice the witches traditional magic using the plants and herbs from your garden, write in your “Book of Shadows” and create recipes for healing, love, happiness and abundance. Learn to understand how each plant and herb is used and how to use them in your magic practices. You will begin to feel the energy of each flower and plant that you use and be able to understand the alchemy of each one, you will gain hours of pleasure from your magical garden, the lore of each herb and plant must be understood to create your powerful magic. The power of plants and herbs enhance the power of your spells and rituals, you will be able to make love potions, money spells, happiness and luck spells, healing spells. The mere act of keeping a living plant helps to increase your energy and the correct herb can be used for particular magic rituals.

The main methods of using plants and herbs for protections are carrying a small amount of the plant or herb in a small container it can be carried in a handbag, pocket, or in a locket or pouch, the herb or plant can also be boiled and the water with the help of a small watering can, be sprinkled around the home. A sprig placed under your pillow or bed for protection and to induce restful sleep.

Plant and herb magic has been used for decades and it is again enjoying a resurgence as people want to use more natural therapies, you will naturally attune to the herb that is right for you at any particular time. Your plant and herb magic practices will become more powerful, potent as you begin to understand the frequency of each plan and herb you use, you need to learn and understand the smell, texture and properties of all the ingredients you will be using and never use anything until you have first got the go ahead from a medical practitioner as plants and herbs can also be used in conjunction with more mainstream medicinal practices. You can also use plant and herb magic with the magic properties that crystals contain.

Always use your magic with a positive intent, good powerful white magic comes from a benign intent when wielding your magic wand, as you mix herbs you are putting in energy just as you would when practicing Reiki healing.

Spell for Increasing Clairvoyance and Prophetic Insight

On a night of the Full Moon, cast a circle. Draw a circle on the earth with a stick. (Do not uproot any grass that might be there. If you wish to see a physical circle more clearly, put small rocks or stones around the circle area.) Light the four directions of East, West, North and South with white pillar candles.
Light another white candle and walk slowly round the circle to delineate its area and to clear its energy. Perform asperges by sprinkling the area with clean water blessed and stirred in sunlight.

Walk widdershins (counter-clockwise) and whisk negative energies out of the circle with your besom (broom made of all-natural materials if physical).

Walk deosil (clockwise) while burning incense or sage to reinforce the Fire and Air energies.

Add a few pinches of salt to the water then walk deosil around the circle, sprinkling the water to reinforce Earth and Water energies.

Walk to the East of the circle and say: Welcome, Bright Air. Blow fresh Inspiration to me now.

Cerridwen, Goddess of prophecy: Come Forth Here, I Ask. Bless me with your presence, Mother.

Walk with the candle around the circle, singing or chanting:

Cerridwen, Come: the moon is right
Completing the cycle fully

Gift me with Foresight and Prophetic Dreams and
Illumine what I see.

Lift all veils; pull illusions aside
In your Light I reside
with Deep Knowing.

So Mote it Be.

Sit in the center of the circle with the blue candle before you and imagine yourself filled with light, prophetic insight and inspiration.

When you are done, thank the Elements and Cerridwen for their guidance and blessings. Walk once round the circle, saying: I bless thee and leave thee Circle, till I draw thee again.

Then blow out and remove the candles of the Elements and the four Directions. Place the candles and any other tools you might have used in a wooden box. Use these candles only for the circle.

Be Blessed Today!

~*Your Daily Fortunes for Monday January 12th, 2015*~

 

~Tarot~Justice

Traditionally, what has been known as the Justice card has to do with moral sensitivity and that which gives rise to empathy, compassion and a sense of fairness. Since the time of Solomon, this image has represented a standard for the humane and fair-minded treatment of other beings.

Often including the image of a fulcrum which helps to balance competing needs against the greater good, and a two-edged sword to symbolize the precision needed to make clear judgments, this card reminds us to be careful to attend to important details. It's a mistake to overlook or minimize anything where this card is concerned. The law of Karma is represented here -- what goes around comes around.

~I Ching Hexagram~33: Retreat

All worthy goals meet resistance of some kind. When negative forces predominate, a well-timed retreat is a good way to stay on the path to ultimate success. Tibetans know this.

Strategic retreat is not to be confused with escape or surrender. Successful retreat demands quick and nimble movement — taking up a new position before you are damaged by the current situation. You are not admitting defeat by temporarily retreating, but simply increasing your options, and preserving your resources. Sometimes it is necessary to slow down, let go or move back in order to develop counter moves for the future. Timing is critical, as is how well you position yourself after realignment. Considerations of personal security are critical.

Periods of withdrawal or retreat call for cool-headedness. It is necessary to keep your wits about you. Attend to small details while allowing yourself time to contemplate the whole picture. Be creative; not all progress follows a straight line. Self-confidence is also essential; small setbacks can easily become defeats if we allow ourselves to become mired in self-doubt or self-pity.

Waves of progress are, by their nature, short-lived. Learn to attune yourself to the up-and-down cycles of life. When the wave is behind you, ride it in; when it's not, lie low. Don't fool yourself into thinking that you can 'fix' any situation whenever you feel like it. Some things are bigger than you are. Hold your pride in check and you will be better prepared to find creative openings.

~Nordic Rune~Gebo
The rune Gebo is the seventh rune of Frey's Eight/Aett.
Image: Gebo
Equivalent Letter: G
Equivalent Number: 7
Also known as: Gifu, Geofu, Gyfu
Can be inverted: No
Meaning: A Gift. The gift may not be a physical gift, but possibly gifts of skill, talent and ability. Also generosity or a partnership of some sort.

~Witches Rune~The Ear Of Corn - Keywords: Good luck, success.

Meanings: This rune represents abundance, success and happiness. This is considered a lucky rune and if leading it is very positive about your query, whether the query is about finance, business, friendship, partnership or spirituality. In conjunction with the Rings it indicates a happy and prosperous marriage. With the Sun it means success in your career, and with Waves, success abroad.

~Totem Animals~Beaver

Beaver may be one of the hardest working animals on the planet. Beaver is attuned to both earth and water medicine, and is strongly attached to home and family. Beaver appears in your reading to remind you that sometimes there's no substitute for hard work. Make a plan, create a solid foundation, then take the next indicated step.

~General Horoscope~
We may run into trouble today if we express our feelings openly. Fortunately, information flows smoothly if we don't try to say more than is necessary because the social Libra Moon helps us maintain balance even if change is in the air. Nevertheless, there could be a few rough spots as the Moon opposes unstable Uranus and squares dark Pluto. Meanwhile, energetic Mars slips into dreamy Pisces, activating our imaginations rather than our actions.

~Your Sign Horoscopes~

Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You don't want to make anyone's life more complicated today as seeking peaceful solutions to ongoing problems is a high priority. Although you may be less willing to fight now that your key planet Mars is swimming through the compassionate waters of Pisces, you're still likely to passionately react if someone pushes you too far. Defend your territory if necessary, but show your real strength by establishing common ground instead of insisting that things go your way. Cooperation is more constructive than competition.

Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
You have so much to do that it's crucial to avoid being overwhelmed by all the details. Concentrate on your productivity today while the Moon is still busy in your 6th House of Work. Advanced planning plays an important role in your current drive for efficiency, but allow time to rest between tasks in order to sustain your energy throughout the day. Long-term strategies are more successful now than flying by the seat of your pants. You know better than anyone else that slow and steady wins the race.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
You may be caught up in your own nervous energy today, but trying to make too much happen right away can wreak havoc. Taking a deep breath and finding your center ensures smooth progress. If you scatter too many seeds now you could wear yourself out trying to juggle all your commitments. The fruits of your labor will be rewarded if you remember to be patient while striving to reach your destination. Keep calm and carry on.

Cancer Horoscope (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
A little annoyance can precipitate an emotional meltdown if you believe that ignoring your feelings will make them go away. Don't hide your heart in the sand; instead, face stressful circumstances head on by considering a variety of available options. Choose the most sensible course of action, but remember that it's not necessary to clear new paths where none are needed. Casting light on an issue goes a long way toward discovering a lasting solution.

Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
The pace of your life is quickening again, bringing a taste of excitement along with great potential for change. However, it's not productive to push your agenda onto anyone else at this time. Instead, make the best of the present moment by listening carefully and responding graciously. You have more time than you realize to prepare for future opportunities. Refining your strategy now is wiser than waiting for the action to begin.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Exploring the source of your anxiety today pays off in the weeks ahead. You have been busy putting all the pieces in place as you mapped out your goals with cautious determination. Now, as your adrenaline begins to stir, you may worry about the execution of your plan and how it affects other people. Run through it one last time in your mind and then let go because your attention is required in the present moment in all manner of communications. The quality of your relationships just might be the determining factor of your success.

Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You are acutely aware of the importance of the decisions you're facing today and are determined to take your time and make the right choice. However, people seem to be meddling in your business, trying to persuade you to follow their advice. Luckily, you are so in tune with your own needs now that your instincts are your best source of guidance. Follow your intuition: you are the only one who can know when it's time to tip the scales one way or the other.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You are usually quite comfortable knowing more than you share, but today the situation may be reversed. You could actually be missing a crucial piece of information and wish you had someone to consult with. However, don't be so suspicious; it's not likely that anyone is purposefully withholding anything from you. Ask the right questions and you might receive the answers you need. But don't hold on to your fears if satisfaction isn't forthcoming; some things remain a mystery for a reason.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Gaining clarity on your wildest dreams can be enlightening now because if you make the right choices, they might actually come true. Naturally, it's not quite that simple, but you do have the potential to lay a foundation for your future by sharing your goals with friends and coworkers today. Don't waste this moment on meaningless fantasies. Being conscious of your true intentions prepares you to step into the next chapter of your life.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Your nerves may be on edge today as you contemplate the uncertainty in your future. Oddly enough, you are still quite confident about where you are going; however, you could be confused about which path to follow to reach your destination. You might need to take on more responsibilities to conserve your resources, which could distract you from your long-term ambitions. Be as flexible as possible when responding to the inevitable changes. For the next few weeks, your adaptability is your secret weapon.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
It's more tempting today to dream of the future than to concentrate on the present moment. Your sense of urgency is waning and your overall energy is shifting now that industrious Mars is leaving your sign and entering your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. You are more willing to put extra effort toward a project that will take time to come to fruition because you can see the value of your contribution. But don't exhaust yourself by taking on too much at once; you will go further and last longer by maintaining a slower burn.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You are on the launch pad, ready to blast into orbit as fiery Mars shifts into your empathetic sign today to ignite your emotions. However, since compassion is one of your greatest strengths, it's time for you to express this highest form of love. Just make sure to move carefully or you could get swallowed up by someone else's pain or misfortune. Giving yourself permission to step back from the crowd to cultivate a spiritual practice is not selfish; it's essential for your mind, body and spirit.
