Where’s the Magick?

Eros Darkthorn

It takes more than adorning yourself with cool amulets and wearing dark clothing to being an effective Witch. And it has nothing to do with the particular path you’ve taken – Wicca, Traditionalist, Eclectic, etc. The difference between productive and non-productive witchcraft is discipline and intent. Here are some questions each Witch should ask themselves.

  1. Are you Healthy?
  2. Are you prosperous? (Financial wealth)
  3. Are you Happy?

Though many more questions could be added to this list, these are the fundamental layers associated with Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs.

Maslowstated that people are motivated to achieve certain needs and that somemaslows-hierarchy-of-needs needs take precedence over others. Our most basic need is for physical survival, and this will be the first thing that motivates our behavior. Once that level is fulfilled the next level up is what motivates us, and so on.

I find so many witches in the Pagan community that barely meet their basic…

Herb Lore: (Herbalism)

Good Witches Homestead

Hippocrates – ” Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”

For the purpose of this article, herbs are loosely referred to as the category of edible plants which can also be used for Medicinal, Spiritual or Magical purposes.

It seems that on every part of the globe where humans have lived, there has developed a body of herbal knowledge, something which has led to a special relationship developing between herbs and people. The foundation for this relationship is the fact that apart from herbs being acknowledged for their nutritional value, there has been a longstanding recognition that they also possess a variety of curative properties, being amongst the most important tools used by Shamen, Medicine men, Witch doctors, and healers, in general, the world over. Indeed, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 80 percent of the population of some Asian and African countries presently use herbal…

Card of the Day – The Fool – Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

New Moon blessings to all! Finally, a more spontaneous energy is at play. This has not been easy with all of the Capricorn energy which has been around, five planets, plus the Moon, equals Capricorn overload, and Capricorn is not one to throw caution to the wind.

It is quite possible that you have set today aside as a launching point, and, if you feel prepared, or not, you may very well be ready to take a leap of faith with a new endeavor in your life. The energy is definitely lighter and more carefree than you may have felt over recent days, due to a recent meetup of Mercury and Saturn back on the 13th. With your bag of tricks in hand, you are ready for new beginnings…nothing ventured, nothing gained. The road ahead will be full of hard work, maybe even a few obstacles, but you are oblivious…

Banish Insecurities with Kundalini Yoga

Without security in the third chakra, a person may experience intimacy issues and resort to transactional relationships, rather than relationships based on connection. The feeling of not being worthy can make us into human-doings instead of human-beings. Insecurity can become so strong in relationships that one can feel like their only value is the tasks they do for another rather than simply being themselves.  […]

Card of the Day – The Emperor – Monday, January 15, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

And the theme continues with today’s Emperor card. This guy is rock-solid, not easy to budge, and the perfect foundation upon which to build your new life. Tomorrow is the New Moon in Capricorn, and the cards we have been seeing, lead me to believe that you are working on something important…very important. What is it that you wish to accomplish for this next phase of your life?

The Emperor is a father figure, a protector, and representative of good structure, which is what so many of you are striving to achieve right now. So, this card can be you, as you continue to implement stable practices in your life to carry you for the long haul, or it can even be a male in your midst, who fits the bill. If it is an individual, there is a likelihood you feel as though they may be unwavering on a…

Hawaii false missile is Sun Square Uranus chaos

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

I had written 2 days ago about ERIS the Dwarf planet of disruption. She is cheek to jowl with planet URANUS the planet of chaos radiative elements- Uranium!- unexpected energy and disruption.

The NEWS in synch with the “As above So Below.” 

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-edit-hawaii-missile-falsealarm-20180113-story.html

Today Sunday Jan. 14 the SUN in CAPRICORN squares URANUS in ARIES

There is an overall feeling oh what’s next? Or what could be next?

Chaos rules today. We are in the midst of a great sea change of cosmic proportions. Chaos is a prerequisite when an old order species or mechanism has outworn its usefulness.  So embrace the chaos as a funny drama. I know it’s not really funny and many millions are hurting. I mean don’t take it all so seriously on some levels. It is a drama.  Trump is a Reality TV show star. How much more literal than that do you need the cosmic message to be?

Winter Blues ~ Healing Crystals

Paths I Walk

By Tara Mideaker

I never thought that it would happen to me.  I watched it happen to others and empathized with the urge to just give in to the cold, dark days that make you want to forego your normal routine.  While it is natural to rest during the winter months, it can be a challenge for most of us to give in and let go of our busy schedules.  It is very healthy and beneficial to change your routine and “play hooky” from your life every once and a while.  But you want that rebellion to come from a place of fun and whimsy and not because your current circumstances are depleting your energy.  Here are some ideas to help when you feel overwhelmed and tired of it all.

Charge your water with Green Tourmaline.  Green Tourmaline has so much fiery, aggressive, masculine energy that it cannot…

Incense

secretsoftheserpent

The word incense comes from the Latin ‘ incendere’ meaning “to burn”. Incense has been found in every culture and civilization. Most of incense burning is done for religious purposes, but was also used for medicinal purposes, perfuming an area, time keeping, an aphrodisiac, aesthetic purposes or just any ceremonial purposes. Why is incense so widely used around the world? What is the true purpose of incense? To get the answers we must go to Ancient Egypt.

Card of the Day – Knight of Pentacles – Sunday, January 14, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

As if to reiterate the conservative approach which was brought to us by yesterday’s 4 of Pentacles, along comes our slow and steady Knight of Pentacles. This is probably the most routine guy in the Tarot, but his qualities are extremely endearing.

The Knight of Pentacles is an indicator that a slower, steadier pace will help you arrive at your destination with success. This is a card of reliability, precictability, punctuality, and being downright meticulous in what you do. You are not quite ready to take that leap, as you wish to have everything right. Let others whiz on past you, in their rush to be first; do the job right the first time, and your rewards for a job well done will be imminent.

See you here tomorrow!

Weekly Tarot Guidance for the week of January 15 through 21, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

This week there will be a New Moon in Capricorn, and if you count the Moon, that brings the total to six celestial bodies in this sign. What do you hope to accomplish? Set your intentions, and do the work, but beware Uranus may have a trick or two up his sleeve at the time of this New Moon. It will be something totally unexpected, which is how Uranus rolls. Also, this week we will see Venus and the sign move on into the sign of Aquarius. Listen to my Weekly Tarot Guidance below:

Pāli Word a Day for January 13, 2018  —  pabhāta — daybreak, dawn; become clear or shining

Card of the Day – 4 of Pentacles / Saturday, January 13, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

There is a sense of staying put taking place today. It is not about not budging, even though we are into some cards which seem to want us to just that. I believe it is more about taking a conservative approach as we near the New Moon in Capricorn which is three days from now.

We have spoken of progress and recovery for many of you, and this card can definitely be an indicator of finally having a little extra funds to hold onto for a rainy day. However, it is also representative of holding on too dearly to things which may have outlived their usefulness. My feeling today, is that for the majority of you, there is this steady conservative mode which you are in, putting all of your ducks in a row, in a very methodical way, thus the conservative vibe which this card is giving off. It…

Marija Gimbutas Vindicated! w/Carol Christ & Miriam Dexter 12/27 by Karen Tate | Spirituality Podcasts

Many of us, along with Marija Gimbutas, believed her work would eventually be vindicated. We ARE the cognitive minority, waiting for the rest of the world to catch up to many ideals of the Sacred Feminine, including the work of scholar, Marija Gimbutas. Tune in tonight as I discuss this wonderful and long awaited development with elders and scholars, Carol Christ and Miriam Robbins Dexter. In the words of Carol, ‘The disdain with which the work of archaeologist Marija Gimbutas has been held in the field of classics and archaeology was shown to me when I started quietly at a cocktail party at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens that I was interested in her work. This comment, tentatively offerred, onleashed a tirade from a young female archaeologist who began shouting at me:…
