May – Flower Moon

may flower moon - Copy

On May 10th we have the full moon in Scorpio.

The flower moon in Scorpio invites us to embrace love, intelligence and creativity, it leads us to try and experience new things, as well as heal and release old emotions. Don’t not forget that Scorpio has a sting in its tail, so take each new step slowly and calmly.

It is the fifth full moon of the year, the name of the month comes from Maia, the roman goddess of fertility, chastity, wealth and health. May is the month of flowers and berries, the time to fill our home with flowers.

The moon of May is powerful for performing all kinds of magic to develop and strengthen your spiritual side as well as a time of transformation and understanding your personal power by knowing that you are not alone, and that you have a team of spirit guides and angels that are on your side to help you move through life.

Many astrologers and ancient cultures have always believed that the Scorpio full moon is one of the most powerful for reaching out to ancient ancestors and guardian spirits. It is also believed to be one of the best full moon’s for rituals and manifestation work and psychic readings.

With so much magic energy circling in the first part of May, it is going to be impossible not to feel the effects of this full moon.

When the moon is in the water signs like Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces it is a good time for magic involving the element water, for increasing our intuition and to bring about changes.

When the moon is in Scorpio, it is also good for revealing secrets using magic, spells and rituals, related to passion, love and intense emotions, It is the best night to make love potions and spells, so during this moon why not take full advantage of her power 🙂

You can use it to combat apathy or depression if you have been feeling a little off balance lately.

It is the moon of knowledge, the best moon to conjure spirits that reveal the past and the future of things. The full moon nourishes us with energy in every aspect of our life, but not everything is love or light remember that the moon also has its dark side that assumes an important role in balancing our emotions and different facets, the moon in Scorpio produces uncomfortable situations where jealousy, resentment, revenge, violence, desires and passions are intermingled.

Rituals & Magic

This lunar phase is a good time to carry out regressions, have psychic / future readings and strengthen clairvoyance.

On this moon you can also invoke water nymphs and inhabitants of the deep sea.

Use blue shades green candles for rituals, altars should face west if possible.

Crystals: Moonstone, Emerald, Amber, Jade and Pearls.

Moon flowers: Lilies & Roses

Colours: Yellow, Blue and all shades of Green.

Animal, the Bull and the Eagle.

Incense, Angelica, Cinnamon and Star anise

Maia, goddess of prosperity and health with her blessing you receive calm to make good decisions. Draw the magic circle, this time we can do this either in a room or in an open space. Burn some cinnamon sticks or incense, fill a small cauldron with a blend of essential oils that have floral scents, your choice, flower petals of different colours, sugar, cinnamon and a piece of peridot or agate, while mixing recite the following.

“We wake Nature up and in this ritual we invoke its spirits, make me tolerant, make me patient, make me wise and accompany me in every choice and every step with calm and wisdom.”

Remove the crystal from the mixture and bury it as an offering to the spirits. You can use the mixture try adding it to your bath.

Love Spell

During May full moon we can make this simple but effective love spell place in your Altar some flowers and roses, symbolizing the nature and the power of spring. In a circle made with rose petals place a rose quartz, burn a jasmine incense stick and light a strawberry or other scented candle, write in a paper or parchment your full name and that of your loved one, write your love one’s initials on a rose petal and your initials on another rose petal.

Place both petals and the parchment inside of an envelope with the crystal, close it and anoint it with a few drops of essential oil roses or jasmine oil at each end, leave it on the altar until midnight, then light a new red candle and burn it. The only thing left will be the rose quartz and ashes, which you will bury in a garden the following morning.

If you have been thinking about having a reading, to see where your life is heading this would be a good week to book one and start to make some positive changes.

Mercury Retrograde – How Will It Affect You?

Mercury-Retrograde

April 9th 2017  – May 3rd 2017 in Aries, then Taurus

Mercury is the ruling planet of all communications, speech, verbal, written, typed and texted.

Including business partnerships, creative projects, friendships, romance, it’s pretty much everything that revolves around communication.

It means things can go awry more than usual, and there are lessons to be learned during these phases.

Astrologers recommend easing off on certain aspects in our life, like starting new projects, signing contracts, completing important tasks.

Also if you’re planning on travelling then add extra time for delays or mishaps.

In generally, try to make space for heightened miscommunications among the people you interact with on a daily basis. Take time to centre yourself, be calm, and reflect.

When Mercury goes ‘retrograde’ or reverses its forward movement around the Sun, we feel it in the form of delays, hassles, misunderstandings.

Many of us are sighing, not again! Now I won’t get anything done!” While there will no doubt be delays and misgivings until Mercury turns direct, there is another side of this period that you may come to appreciate.

Mercury Retrograde is also a cosmic start over, If you want to try again at a relationship, a project, or business  idea, then you get a second chance with Mercury, who stops, backs up, and gives you another shot.

Mercury Retrograde can also bring communication from old relationships and you may be revisited by people who have been out of your life for, months, or even years.

If you’ve been chasing the future in full steam ahead mode and stressing yourself out Mercury Retrograde says let go and trust in the divine because you can’t control everything.

Just remember to breathe, and take things slowly. And never take anything personal during Mercury Retrograde!

Try to find some comfort in knowing that sometimes two steps back can in the end propel you 10 steps forward.

Do you walk on the dark side ?

face_shatter_by_husam2012-d5tlltb

Empaths are typically known as the healers of the world. They’re the people whose senses are heightened the ones that not only see the different energies of the world, but actually feel them, experience them.

Those who are not empaths might think that this ability to feel what others feel is a gift, but if you can convince an empath to talk about their gift, they might tell you that it’s not always sunshine and rainbows. In fact, it’s quite often not a very fun gift to possess at all.

Because of their gift, so many people rely on them for support. Empaths are almost always trusted because they make people feel safe. And while the empath is capable of handling the emotions of others, they also experience quite a bit of stress because of it.

The dark side of being an empath comes in the form of having two conflicting voices constantly roaring at each other inside of their heads. Constantly feeling both the good and the bad, the negative and the positive, to the point that they feel overwhelmed.

Empaths are more susceptible to the negative energies in life. Their intense ability to feel can’t get away from the deep rooted evils that exist in the world. Their deep understanding of how the world exists and operates is enough to confuse and sadden them. What they can’t understand is why this type of energy exists in the first place, if all it does is hurt others.

The dark side of being an empath is constantly being exhausted and fatigued from the energies you absorb. But, you’d never know it. Because the empath never dares break down or lose composure. They quietly observe, acknowledge and feel.

As many others do, empaths want to be loved and accepted for who they are. But, it is their generosity and kindness that often sees them being taken advantage of by those who only take, never give. Empaths are ‘givers’ by all means, ready to show kindness to those in need at all times.

The dark side of being an empath is not knowing that being so selfless places an incredibly heavy burden on one’s self. Even the empaths that do recognize the burdensome nature of their selflessness often choose to ignore it, because carrying that weight is more meaningful than letting it fall on someone else’s shoulders.

The dark side of being an empath is knowing that you willingly neglect both your body and mind for the sake of others. A neglect that builds over the years, eventually resulting in the need to go soul searching once again,  a practice that we only take up when we feel completely lost.

The dark side of being an empath is knowing that even when they fall in love, they never do so entirely. They simply aren’t capable of giving every ounce of their heart to someone else. They know that if they tried, the intensity of the passion would most likely be too much to handle, for themselves and their partners.

Which is why they always keep a little part of them hidden away from the rest of the world. They keep a guard up out of necessity, even if they want nothing more than to let it down and succumb to an overwhelming love.

The dark side of being an empath is the war that is always being waged within. The war they wage against the sadness, the darkness, and the sorrowful side of themselves that is always trying to rear its ugly head and lead them into self-destruction.

The only way they can fight this successfully is by learning to distinguish between emotions that are their own, and emotional energies that are imposters, invading from the outside. Empaths need people who understand who they are, people they can talk to and who will listen.

Empaths need to be able to let down the wall they’ve built up around their feelings so that they can let their empathic selves do good in their own life.

Otherwise, empaths are destined to fight a war within themselves that never ends.

Past lives, how many have you had ?

past life9

For a lot of us, past lives are many lessons that have been learned. We may have carried over fears or emotions from previous lives that have an impact on our lives today. Some people believe that experiences or feelings they have in this lifetime can be traced to an experience in a past incarnation. If you are afraid of heights for example, it could be because in a past life, you died after a traumatic fall. I have always insisted that I would be cremated never buried; I know this goes back to one of my past lives. You know when you meet a person for the first time and they seem familiar, it may be because you’ve known them in a past life. There is a popular theory that souls tend to reunite from one lifetime to another, so someone you loved in a past life may appear in the form of someone you love in this lifetime.

If you think that you may have had a past life, or lives, then actively trying to discover what information you can about those lives can help open doors to self discovery in your current life. There are several different methods you can use to take a look into your past lives.

Past Life Regression, typically done by someone with experience, a past life regression is one in which the Seeker is guided through a hypnotic state by another person. During a past life regression session, it’s not uncommon for the Seeker to feel that they are in another location, or of the opposite sex, or even speak in another language or with an accent.

Meditation, a past life meditation is an exercise you can do on your own or in a group, it may take some practice. You can achieve this by allowing your mind to wander back through your current lifetime, to earlier memories, and then telling your mind to go back to the lifetime before. Although this doesn’t always work for everyone, you may find yourself replaying memories from what seems to be another lifetime. Shamanic meditations work well within a group practice.

Dream Analysis, some people believe they can learn about their past lives from dreams. Are there recurring events or places that show up in your dreams? Perhaps you’ve never been to Rome in this lifetime, but you continually dream of wandering through the city.  Maybe you could try keeping a dream diary.

Once you’ve learned about what you suspect may be a past life, it can be fun as well as enlightening to do some historical research. Although this may not confirm the existence of a past life although I have know people personally where they have. What it can do is help rule out things that might be just wishful thinking or just your imagination. By confirming timelines and history, you can help narrow it down a bit.

I’m personally doing the research on my own past lives I have had nine and I’m now in my tenth.  The one that I feel the need to find out about is my seventh this is when I was a witch. I now live in the same area and do the same type of work which would have been considered witchcraft in those days. I am the same age now as I was when died, I was hung. I also work in the same street.  I need to know what my name was as I feel I was buried in the local church. I will be writing a book on all my past lives, I have had a few interesting ones that I know of already. I will share some of the information with you in a few weeks time.

If this is something of interest to you I do run Shamanic Meditations every now and again. I also run two circles and it’s during these  we also gather information about our past lives.

You can also have a past life reading by email using past life cards, info and prices are on my website.

Relationship & Love Tarot Reading.

If you have been single for a while, you might want to talk to a psychic to find out when you are going to meet someone new, or if you have met someone you might want to know if they are right for you. You might also want a reading if someone you love has left and you want to know if and when they will come back. These sort of readings are known as relationship readings and it’s good to know how to get the most out of them.
A good psychic will be able to tune in to you and will also be able to pick up what is going on with other person and give you insights into what’s going on between you both. The psychic should be able to give you enough details to let you know that they have made a good connection.
When it comes to these sort of readings, it’s important to understand the bigger picture.
You may have meant to have certain experiences or encounters, our ultimate destiny is not set in stone, we can also create our future. When a reader tunes in to you or someone else, they can pick up a lot of information about how you and that other person are feeling at that moment and what is going on with you and them that might impact on the relationship between you. They can also look further down the line and see what may happen in the future. That future, however, is subject to free will. You may find yourself attracted to someone and then something can happen that changes the way that you feel about them and you can decide that they aren’t the one for you after all. Along with the decisions that you make and the actions that you take on a daily basis change the course of future events. The same applies to them.
Along with tuning in to you and the connection that you may have with someone else, a psychic reader will be able to tune in to the patterns and beliefs that you may not even be aware of that are actually driving your feelings and the actions that you take. Love teaches us our greatest lessons and often someone can appear in our lives and we can convince ourselves that we are meant to be together when in fact they may just teach us a lesson.
When we are anxious or upset, we can convince ourselves that we will feel better from knowing what is going to happen next, it frees us from being at the mercy of what someone else may or may not do and opens us up to the potential of attracting and keeping a loving relationship. It can point out the blocks we need to change and create what we desire.
That’s why a professional psychic will answer your questions but can also help you gain a true understanding of what is going on within your relationships and how you can get yourself back on track.
A relationship reading focuses on you. It gives you a far greater insight into how you can attract and keep a loving relationship. Ask questions that give you some idea of the bigger picture, that way you can use the psychic reading to help you gain greater insight into yourself and what you can do next rather than focusing on what is going to happen. You can receive insights that you can work with, that mean you can break free of waiting for their next move and feel more in control.

If you would like to book an email relationship tarot reading visit my website – http://www.magicandglitter.co.uk and send me a message. Readings cost £25.00 you will need to include a photograph of yourself.

Summer Solstice – Litha

19105915_10155291490411772_6416304106114536893_n.jpgLitha: Summer Solstice – 21st/22nd June

Litha (Midsummer, Gathering Day, Summer Solstice, Alban Heffyn, Feill-Sheathain)
Incense: Sage, mint, basil, Saint John’s Wort, sunflower, Lavender
Decorations: Dried herbs, potpourri, seashells, summer flowers, and fruits.
Colours: blue, green, and yellow

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 the centre of the stone circle.

In ancient times, the Summer Solstice was a fire-festival of great importance when the burning of balefires ritually strengthened the sun. It was often marked with torchlight processions, by flaming tar barrels or by wheels bound with straw, which were set alight and rolled down steep hillsides. The Norse especially loved lengthy processions and would gather together their animals, families and lighted torches and parade through the countryside to the celebration site.

The use of fires, as well as providing magical aid to the sun, were also used to drive out evil and to bring fertility and prosperity to men, crops and herds. Blazing gorse or furze was carried around cattle to prevent disease and misfortune; while people would dance around the balefires or leap through the flames as a purifying or strengthening rite. The Celts would light balefires all over their lands from sunset the night before Midsummer until sunset the next day. Around these flames the festivities would take place.

In Cornwall up to the mid 18th century the number and appearance of fires seen from any given point was used as a form of divination and used to read the future.

Astronomically, it is the longest day of the year, representing the God at full power. Although the hottest days of the summer still lie ahead, from this point onward we enter the waning year, and each day the Sun will recede from the skies a little earlier, until Yule, when the days begin to become longer again.

Agriculturally, the crops are in full growth. They are reaching the pinnacles of maturity and coming closer to the harvest time. Most wild herbs are fully mature by Midsummer and this is the traditional time for gathering magickal and medicinal plants to dry and store for winter use. In Wales, Midsummer is called Gathering Day in honour of this practice.

Magical Aspects

Since this sabbat revolves around the sun, a candle should be lit for the entire day, especially if it is cloudy or raining. The fire represents the sun and is a constant daily reminder of the power of the God. Rituals should be performed at noon, when the sun is highest in the sky. The best rituals to perform on Midsummer are those dealing with masculine issues, masculine energies, or issues dealing with solar influence.

Many pagans choose to make protective amulets, in the week before the Sabbat, which are later empowered over the Midsummer balefire. Some witches choose to bury their protective amulets each Midsummer’s eve and construct new ones. Rue, rowan and basil, tied together in a white or gold cloth, is a good protective trio that can be carried in your pocket year round.

Midsummer is the time to formalize any relationship and couples that have been together a year and a day since the previous Beltane can make their marriage final. This Sabbat is also an excellent time to re-new wedding vows.

Midsummer Incense

Sage, mint, basil, Saint John’s Wort, sunflower, mistletoe (specifically the berries which represent semen), oak, rowan, and fir.

Suggested activities for Litha:

*Rededication to the Lord and Lady

*Divination related to romance and love

*Light a white candle in front of a mirror and say your own Lithia prayer over it, then allow the candle to burn out.

*Float paper boats with blessings on a river/stream to bring luck and love to whatever may find it, or to the land.

*Singing and dancing around a bonfire

*Outdoor picnic feasts

*Create crowns out of flowers
