Mercury Retrograde In Pisces.

merc-retro

As the planets in our solar system make their way through each sign of the zodiac these transits can often impact our lives in a major way, especially when a planet goes ‘retrograde’ which means it’s transitioning backwards.

The first planetary retrograde this year will be in Mercury starting on 5th March and ending on 28th March, it is more than likely that you have heard about the chaos surrounding a Mercury retrograde, and its taking place in the sign Pisces.

This could have an impact on our relationships, more specifically, our love lives. With the sensitive energy of Pisces and seriousness of Mercury, this can make a challenging combination.

This won’t be an entirely negative thing. Pisces is a compassionate energy, with the tendency to be a dreamer, when feeling under pressure they are prone to escapism.

With Mercury causing our communications to go a bit awry, we can expect the energy of Pisces to balance things out. If we can fine tune our tendencies for anxiety, and stay calm this retrograde could also help us with our romantic side.

As we control our urges to fill the voids in our relationships with meaningless stuff we can focus to replace those with dreamy ideas of our future love life.

Instead of overworking yourself up trying to correct the miscommunication and chaos of the Mercury retrograde, learn to let the energy flow naturally in your relationships, open your heart and be empathic and support one another.

This is not the best time to apply for a job, start a new job or set up business, start a new course, take that trip, start a new relationship, buy a car or do just about anything else that you are depending on a good outcome, because it will often be delayed, changed, or involve so much backwards and forwards that you will end up tying yourself up in knots and have to cope with all the unravelling later.

It is best to postpone anything of real importance in your life until after the Mercury retrograde.

Moon Magic

moon-goddess-may-25-2013-eclipse-1024x823

The Moon is the astronomical body closest to us and, therefore, has a profound influence upon us, it is very important to choose a time when the Moon is in an astrological sign which is appropriate for your working.

For example:
Aries/Action – Enthusiasm
Taurus/ Renewal – Sensuality
Gemini/Communication – Curiosity
Cancer/Emotion – Nurturing
Leo/Vitality – Determined
Virgo/Organizing – Studious
Libra/Balance – Cooperation
Scorpio/Sexual – Philosophical
Capricorn/Authority – Ambitious
Aquarius/Innovation Social
Pisces/Sensitivity – Idealistic.

Bear in mind that magickal workings for gain, increase or bringing things to you, should be initiated when the Moon is Waxing (from Dark to Full); when the Moon is Waning (from Full to Dark), it is time for magickal workings of decrease or sending away.

The highest energy occurs at the Full Moon and, therefore, this is the most powerful time for magickal workings. The New Moon is the next most powerful time for Magick.

Whenever possible, follow Nature’s natural Energy Currents. There is a natural time for starting things (a planting time), for
maturing things (a growing time), for reaping things ( a harvest time) and, of course, a time for rest and planning.

Flowing with these currents will make your magickal work much easier.

Astrological Moon Phases:

Moon in Aries is the best time to work magick involving leadership, authority, rebirth, spiritual conversion, or willpower. Healing rituals for ailments of the face, head, or brain are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Taurus is the best time to work magick for love, real estate, material acquisitions, and money. Healing rituals for ailments of the throat, neck, and ears are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Gemini is the best time to work magick for good communication, change of residence, writing, public relations, and travel. Healing rituals for ailments of the shoulders, arms, hands, or lungs are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Cancer is the best time to work magick for home and domestic life. Healing rituals for ailments of the chest or stomach are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Leo is the best time to work magick involving authority, power over others, courage, fertility, or childbirth. Healing rituals for ailments of the upper back, spine, or heart are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Virgo is the best time to work magick involving employment, intellectual matters, health, and dietary concerns. Healing rituals for ailments of the intestines or nervous system are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Libra is the best time to work magick involving artistic work, justice, court cases, partnerships and unions, mental stimulation, and karmic, spiritual, or emotional balance. Healing rituals for ailments of the lower back or kidneys are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Scorpio is the best time to work magick involving sexual matters, power, psychic growth, secrets, and fundamental transformations. Healing rituals for ailments of the reproductive organs are also done during this period of time.

Moon in Sagittarius is the best time to work magick for publications, legal matters, travel, and truth. Healing rituals for ailments of the liver, thighs, or hips are also done at this time.

Moon in Capricorn is the best time to work magick for organization, ambition, recognition, career, and political matters. Healing rituals for the knees, bones, teeth, and skin are also done at this time.

Moon in Aquarius is the best time to work magick involving science, freedom, creative expression, problem-solving, extrasensory abilities, friendship, and the breaking of bad habits or unhealthy addictions. Healing rituals for ailments of the calves, ankles, or blood are also done at this time.

Moon in Pisces is the best time to work magick involving dreamwork, clairvoyance, telepathy, music, and the creative arts. Healing rituals for ailments of the feet or lymph glands are also done at this time.

It’s a marvellous night for a moon dance.

On 21st January, there will not only be a Super Moon, there is also going to be a Blood Moon.

A Blood Moon is the one that happens at a time of a total lunar eclipse, while a Super Moon is actually a new or full moon which occurs when it is in the nearest point to the planet Earth.

At a time of a total lunar eclipse, the moon appears almost red coloured. The reason for this is the way in which the shadows of the planet Earth appear while the moon is passing through it.

A lunar eclipse will only happen on full moon and only when the Moon, Sun, and Earth are perfectly lined up.

This one is also going to be a Super Moon, where the moon is going to appear a bit bigger. When it’s closer to the planet, it looks even bigger than usual. A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is on the other end of the planet from Sun, and the one which is noted at its nearest point.

During this phase, you can prepare for the total lunar eclipse, which is going to start on the 21st of January. Our Moon is going to be in a total eclipse for less than an hour, and it will turn an orange-red in colour.

This January’s Super Moon could have an effect on some of you, it can mean that unexpected events or news are more likely to cause anxiety and uncertainty about the future. Your life may seem more hectic and fast paced than before.

Emotions and instincts may grow stronger during a lunar eclipse, meaning it’s a good time to examine your close relationships. This is because you will be more closely in tune with your needs and desires as the eclipse takes hold, enabling you to see disharmony in your life.

However, you may also feel jumpy as the Moon squares in Uranus causing rapid mood swings and impulse reactions. Your patience and focus may slip, and you may feel inclined to rebel.

For some that tend to be more sensitive and relaxing may become difficult during this period, as unsettling feelings creeps in and you anticipate something new over the horizon.

On a more positive note, this eclipse will grant you the chance to see things from a different perspective.

By remaining flexible, calm and open-minded is the key to dealing with any unexpected events, from your car breaking down to delayed travel plans, it might be a good idea to have a backup plan.

A Spell to Sell Your House.

tumblr_oob338zCjp1vtwzbbo1_500

This is best done on New Moon or the Full Moon.

This is all about removing the obstacles to selling or letting go your house.

First go through and scrub the house from top to bottom and then do a cleansing.

Often we form cords or attachments to our home some of them can be positive and some negative when we can’t sell a house it is often these attachments that stop us moving on with our lives.

The other thing I have noticed is that often we are stopped selling our houses until it’s the right time.

This is an example of divine timing often we have to wait until the home we are meant to have is being sold.

Set your intent by asking the Angels for help for the greatest good.

Light a black candle as you do ask that “all obstacles be removed from selling your house, and any attachments there are be severed”

Light this candle over 3 days try and burn it for at least 2 hours a day

Every time you see the candle reaffirm your intent to sell

You might like to write this request on a piece of paper and burn it each day before you put the candle out.

Thank your angels for helping

The Spell:

Take an image of a loved one and ask for their help

Bury this image outside your front door facing the road, make sure the image is head down

After you have done this light a green candle and say (you can make up your own wording)

“Dear ? please help bring me a sale that’s quick and fair”

Ask for Angels help as well ” please bring me the sale that is best for me”

Repeat the lighting of the candle and prayer for 3 days

You may wish to write the prayer down and burn it each day

As you put the candle out remember to thank your loved one and the other spiritual beings you work with.

Affirmation:

Its time to let go

See the sold sign on your house

Know that the price will be right and the right person will come along at the right time

Are you a Moon Child?

moon_child__by_sugarmints_d7m56em-fullview

Do you have a strong connection to the moon and its energy? Did you know that you can use the Moon energy to your advantage, you may be like me and feel energised and wide awake, often not sleeping much or not at all for around 3 days, a day or so leading up or during the Full or New Moon cycle, so during this time, I plan any new projects or work on my ideas, I finish stuff that I have been putting off or sometimes just put out my intentions wishing and focusing on the moon energy to help send it out to the universe, occasionally  I also do a little spell work.

If you’re on my face book you will see the posts going up I often tell you when it’s the New Moon or Full Moon and what star sign it’s in to help those that might be more effected by the energy during that time.

During the Waning moon I don’t generally start anything new I have found if I do it doesn’t tend to work out to well, it’s better to rest up a little until it moves into the Waxing position. We have a New Moon coming in the next few days this is a good time to start planning or working on what you would like to send out to the universe.

I have now started doing Moon energy readings for myself, just to explain it simply, during each New Moon or Full Moon it falls in one of the signs of the Zodiac its brings in certain energies that we can use to our advantage.

If you would like a reading then message me or take a look at the options on my website.

You can either have a monthly moon reading, 3 months or a yearly moon reading to help you live more consciously or like me you can use the Moon energy as a tool to help create the life you want by manifesting or cosmic ordering, you will also learn how to make the most of each New and Full Moon depending on which sign of the zodiac they are in, I will also include mini psychic prediction if you already have card readings with me then you know that these are very accurate.

I will need your date, time of birth and location (UK or Overseas) these will be sent to your email ready for you to refer too or print off.

Witches Keys

tumblr_p8mgpzGC4I1uutnkko1_500

Keys are very old tools used in magic, they can be used for both divination and ritual purposes, they symbolise the power to change reality and open the doors of the other realms. Usually an old key is used by a Witch to travel through realms and seek the guidance of higher and wiser entities.

Skeleton Keys hold quite a lot of mystique.  They are connected with gateways and portals, doorways to the unknown, knowledge, mysteries, powers, initiations, new ways, forbidden things and answers to curious questions.  They are often associated with specific deities or spiritual figures, and are often used as part of charms or other magical tools.

Keys represent knowledge and access, and it’s important to note that they can both open and lock doors. Possessing a key is both about gaining access and setting boundaries.

Hecate, a goddess often described as the Queen of the Witches, is a deity associated with gate keeping and keys, she holds the keys that allow passage into the spiritual realm, she is also a great protector among other things.

Keys are often made into talismans or charms with many various functions. They will always be of great desire and use to those that practice the craft. They can be used as protection charms for doorways that included keys and protection blessings so that homes can be shielded from the spirits of the place passing through doorways.

You can also use them on your altar:

  • For divination, the passageway ‘in’.
  • The holder of the key is allowed access to all that is unseen
  • A symbol for sealed or locked away secrets
  • An initiatory tool held by the one that has gained access into specific spaces on the other side
  • A talisman in a protection spell
  • The amulet of the Traveller
  • Can be hung at doorways of your home for protection
  • Removing blocks
  • Opening roads
  • Calling spirits

Invocation to charge your key.

Sacred Key, Sacred Key,
I charge you with the task
of unlocking the path of mystery.
Grant me pass, let me in
Make available the secrets
that exist within.

I like to repeat on the power of 3×3, but do it as often as feels right for you the more you rely on your intuition, the more affective you will become.

All information was taken from various places on the internet, if you’re interested in finding out more about keys and there magical uses, try reading a few witchy / spell books.

Sea Witches and Water Witches

719651209146c30cd9cb0fde21c0154c

First let’s start by defining what a Sea Witch is and what a Water Witch is.
Sea witches usually define themselves as a witch that works with sea and ocean energies. Their altar may include sand and water from their local beach or beaches they have visited on their travels .They also may choose to perform magic on the beach with their found ocean treasures such as beach glass, shells, driftwood, bones, stones and fossils.

Not all sea witches work with a deity but for those that do they tend to choose sea deities such as Poseidon or Aphrodite, in some cases they may also choose to work with water spirits such as mermaids, oceanids, nereids or the spirit of sea monsters such as the Kraken or Leviathan. These are just a few examples of course; there are thousands of sea and ocean spirits to work with and some choose to work with living sea creatures such as fish or shell fish. There are so many ways to practice sea and ocean magic if you love the sea and the moon and it heavily influences your path and the magic you work then chances are you are a sea witch.

Sea witches focus on Moon lore, the tides, and weather magic, from these elements came the tradition of witches who could raise wind and cause storms, which even 200 years ago could send them to the stake. The Sea Witch does not just use white magic or black magic but gray magic because the person deals with all elements at their disposal when maintaining a balance between light and dark powers. Not many ordinary persons can manage such a feat, which is why most sea witches are solitary, working alone and by themselves.

According to legends witches were believed to be able to control the wind. One method was with the use of three knots tied into a rope, or sometimes into a handkerchief. When the three knots were tied in the proper magical way, the wind was bound up in them. Witches gave, or sometimes sold, these magic knots to sailors to help them experience safe voyages. The release of one knot brought a gentle, south westerly wind, two knots, a strong north wind and three knots, a tempest.

Although some choose to call themselves sea priestess, rather than witch, a sea priestess has a bit of a different calling than a sea witch. Witches are generally concerned with magic, spirit work and divination. While a sea priestess may also engage in these things, they are more concerned with serving a sea or ocean deity. You may find a sea priestess on the shores performing healing rituals, energy work or cleaning the shores.

Originally water witches were folk practitioners who would use a divining rod or rods to find water where one might dig a well or water source. However in modern times, many witches of the Watery nature have found that the term Sea Witch does not apply to them. Perhaps because they are to inland or perhaps because the lakes, rivers and sacred springs sing to their hearts the way the ocean does for sea witches. Water witches may be found working at their home altar with beautiful sacred bowls or jars of water based potions. Others may work at a sacred water site such as a holy well where they work with the water and the spirit of the well to bring about healing. They may also be found cleaning the shores of the local river bed and performing healing rites in a quite spot under the shade of a willow tree.

There is absolutely no reason why a Sea witch can’t work with water from a sacred well or a water witch can’t work on the sea shore. I personally am more of a sea witch I can use and prefer the pull of power and energy of the waves.

Witchy bottles & jars for magic.

il_340x270.1623241575_h3q0

In many traditions of folk magic in Europe and  North America, a spell is sealed inside a jar, bottle or other container. This serves a number of purposes, the first being that it keeps the magic concentrated, and prevents it from escaping before the spell has been completed. The other is that you can take it and put it anywhere you like.

Perhaps the best known type of jar spell is the witches bottle. In early times, the bottle was designed as a way to protect oneself from any negative witchcraft, usually around the time of Samhain, homeowners would create a witch bottle to keep evil spirits from entering the home on Hallows Eve. The witch bottle was usually made of pottery or glass, and included sharp objects such as pins and bent nails. It typically contained urine as well, belonging to the homeowner, as a magical link to the property.

The sort of container you use in a jar spell or bottle spell will partially depend on the intent of your working. For instance, if you’re hoping to do magic for healing and wellness, consider putting your spell ingredients into a medicine bottle, pill container, or apothecary style jar.

A spell done to sweeten someone’s attitude can be done with a jar of honey. In some forms of Hoodoo and folk magic, honey is used to sweeten someone’s feelings towards you. In one traditional spell, honey is poured into a jar or saucer on top of a slip of paper containing the person’s name. A candle is placed in the saucer, and burned until it goes out on its own. Another variation, the candle itself can be covered in honey.

You can also make a banishing spell using a jar of hot sauce, for this process the name of the person you wish to be rid of is written on a slip of paper, and stuffed into the jar of the hottest hot sauce you can find. Shake the bottle every night for seven nights during the waning moon, and on the final day, empty it down the loo and get rid of the bottle, hopefully the person will then “hot-foot it” out of your life.

A money jar spell can be done to bring wealth your way, in some traditions nine pennies are used, all though it may be various coins placed in a jar or bottle. The jar may then be painted green or gold if you wish and then put someplace where it can be seen each day. Eventually, according to tradition, money will start coming in, this one is best done on a full or new moon.

Keep in mind that spell jars can be plain and simple, or you can decorate them to look pretty. The nice thing about a decorative, attractive jar is that you can leave them anywhere you like, and no one will even realise that magic is going on.
