Aquarius Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse Energies

The Manifesting Moon

And so, we’re entering the August Eclipse season!

Eclipses always intensify the energies surrounding it, and this one is no different. Especially since it’s the window to the next New Moon in bright and passionate Leo again!

Tomorrow’s Full Moon in Aquarius will be shared with a Lunar Eclipse. This lunar eclipse will be seen all around the world except for the Americas. Even though in some parts of the world, we may not see it, we will certainly FEEL the energy rising and strengthening.

Eclipses usually bring forth unresolved, old or ignored parts of us, that we’ve chosen to leave in the dark (or maybe we’re unaware that they linger in darkness). It’s never really comfortable or fun to look at your shadow side and see it as clear as day. But this happens so we gain more clarity on who we are, who we want to be and…

A STONE OF THE ‘TWO THAT ARE ONE’ THE YIN-YANG STONE: ZEBRA STONE

Good Witches Homestead

Half black and half white, Zebra Stone is as its name implies – a stone whose rhythmic pattern resembles that of the zebra. Through its own image, this striking stone is all about balance. Like the yin/yang of Chinese philosophy, Zebra Stone also possesses balanced qualities of opposing, yet complementary, forces. When combined, a dynamic equilibrium is reached, and we are then awakened to the prospect of eternity and how it relates to the turn of the Wheel.

It is also known as Zebra Marble, Zebra Jasper, and less often Zebra Agate.

The Signs You Might Be A Witch

Good Witches Homestead

The word witch is often associated with images of an old woman with warts and a large nose who’s into evil or scaring children. In the Wizard of Oz or other mythology, the witch was either good or bad but never both but these images and stereotypes are outdated and already in the midst of a makeover.

The way I see it, the new version of the witch is much different. She (though could be a he, for the purpose of this article I use feminine pronouns) works for the light and the dark and oscillates between being a loving mother and a wild lover. She has the beauty/power of the seductress and the brains/wisdom of the crone and knows when to use which. She is both the Earthy warrior goddess and the mysterious cosmic communicator.

I want to be this woman. And, as my latest issue of the magazine The…

Seven Stones for Summoning Spirits

GrannyMoon's Morning Feast

crystal quartz

Spirits and witches go together like sunlight and solar panels. The ability to work with them effectively can make or break our magic, but developing a relationship with the other side doesn’t always come easy for everyone. Witches can work with the potent energies found in crystals, gemstones, and minerals to help them cross the hedge and build a better practice. This is my list of the seven stones (okay, there are actually thirteen on the list) that you should be working with if you are looking to boost your psychic abilities, make contact with spirits of all kinds, and travel the planes of existence.

1. Labradorite
A beautiful and highly prized stone known for aiding in manifestation, astral travel, dream work, and protection. The Inuit people believed that Labradorite was formed when the Northern Lights got trapped in ice. Labradorite is called, “The Temple of Stars” by some…

The Fire Festival of Litha

Midsummer or the Summer Solstice is the most powerful day of the year for the Sun God. Because this Sabbat glorifies the Sun God and the Sun, fire plays a very prominent role in this festival. The element of Fire is the most easily seen and immediately felt element of transformation. It can burn, consume, cook, shed light or purify and balefires still figure prominently at modern Midsummer rites.

Most cultures of the Northern Hemisphere mark Midsummer in some ritualised manner and from time immemorial people have acknowledged the rising of the sun on this day. At Stonehenge, the heelstone marks the midsummer sunrise as seen from…
