Traditions now days encourage us to celebrate our loved ones and show them how much we care and appreciate them, but I know some of you dread this day.

Valentine’s Day isn’t just a commercial it has been celebrated since the 4th Century BC. The most popular belief is that it was named after a Bishop named Valentine, stationed in the Roman Empire. At the time, Emperor Claudius II decided that unmarried men made better soldiers so ruled that young men could not marry. Bishop Valentine took pity on the soldiers and officiated the weddings secretly against the Emperors law, he ended up being jailed for his crimes, it is said that Valentine fell in love with his jailors daughter, and before his execution he wrote to her “From your Valentine” as his final goodbye.

Maybe the build up to Valentine’s Day has got you wondering about your love life …

Tarot Readings are often used to understand a person’s current situation and look a little into the future, some of you may want to use a reading to find out where your relationship is headed, or you can use a reading to predict when your new love will arrive.

It is also a great way for getting a fresh perspective on issues in a current relationship. Maybe you want reassurance that you and your partner are on the right path or simply want to prepare for any challenges that may lie ahead.

If you and your partner find yourselves on rocky footing this Valentine’s Day, the cards may be able to help you gain some insight into your partner’s true feelings towards you or reveal their doubts and fears about the relationship.

Perhaps you’re worried that your relationship may be falling apart or are struggling to face up to a pending break up. Then a reading may give you the assurance and support you need to make a decision.

The cards can reveal a whole lot of information including how your partner views you, their present concerns, their feelings towards you this may allow you to gain insight into your relationship and develop a better understanding of where you are headed.

Whether you have a romantic person to share Valentine’s Day with or not, it is a great time to reflect on your love life or your life in general.   Whats in store for you in 2019

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.

Are you a Moon Child?

It’s a marvellous night for a moon dance.

 

magicandglitter_

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.

Establishing Contact With Spirit

medium.jpg

One of the goals of anyone walking a spiritual path is the ability to receive messages from the spirit world and communicating with spirits. We all come onto this path at different levels and it can be very frustrating for some. Others are already aligned with their natural skills and they have a good foundation for spirit communication.

Like any sense, even trackers can see more in their environment than I ever will be able to because they have sharpened their senses and they know what to look for. This is a very complex topic and one that I have been working on developing over the years. Where you are now is not where you are ultimately going to be. The amazing thing about the third eye is that it is like a muscle; the more you work it the stronger it will become and the more it will grow. It is a very powerful part of our composition and the more we interact with it and train it, the stronger it will get.

Stages of Spiritual Contact

Stage One – No Sensation – This is usually caused by a disconnection between the third eye and the nervous system. Numbness, the skin is unable to pick up spiritual sensations including a lot of the physical sensations in our world. A lot of these sensations we think are physical, actually can have a spiritual component to them. The best way to start training your nervous system is through shocking it. Go stand in a cold breeze, shiver, get the chills, get goose bumps and when you do focus on the sensation that your skin is experiencing. Many find they are pretty numb in this world. Children, they embrace everything with enthusiasm and wonder, so they experience a lot, adults tend to be less aroused with the world around them, in turn tend to miss things. These subtle cues are how the spirits connect to us in the beginning stages.

When you are at this stage of the game you really want to experiment. Unblock your third eye, stimulate it, help it to grow and awaken. Using your imagination can go a long way in helping to crack the shell of the third eye and open up your natural skills and abilities. Start by playing with your imagination and letting it grow. A lot of people experience closing of their third eye because they are told it is all fantasy. The third eye is directly connected to your imagination. Start by getting back in touch with your imagination and use it to help you when doing spiritual communication exercises and simulations.

Stage Two -Slight sensations – At this stage, the third eye and the nervous system have connected and you can sense things going on around you. You might not be able to make sense of much but you are noticing that strange things are indeed occurring. Your third eye has started working in alignment with your body and your chakras, through exercises and spiritual practises it will now steadily grow stronger. It would be a good idea at this time to figure out what area you are strong in and work with exercises specifically designed for developing that ability. At this stage pay close attention to what goes on around you and what you feel and see. Be open to the idea that it might be your spirits/entities trying to interact with you. At this stage…

~ You might hear the same song over and over again
~ You might notice things in your environment move
~ You might see shadows and orbs
~ You might have tingles and slight vibrations on your skin
~ You may experience strange smells
~ You might develop strange tastes
~ You might hear a ringing or a buzzing sound
~ You might get images and visions you can’t make full sense of
~ You might have dreams where you recognize symbols or energies that are familiar
~ You might hear things; words, sentences, expressions, laughter.

Practising and working with your third eye will make it stronger and help you awaken your natural abilities. Imperative you believe in yourself too. Believing you can do it is paramount. This is a concept that is true of many areas, believing you can do it will drive you and take you there. It all starts with your beliefs and ends with your desire to push yourself to achieve.

Stage Three –Awakening/ Moderate Sensations – At this stage your senses are really starting to awaken, they are starting to emerge, and you are really starting to experience things. You might not know where things are being derived from but you are starting to get very strong sporadic bursts when it comes to sensing and working with your third eye. At this stage you are having success with your daily exercises and starting to really experience powerful psychic moments. They might not last and you might not know how to control them but they are there and you are having them. At this stage you will begin to get a handle on your abilities and know what you need to do to continue growing and developing them. You will begin to know yourself, your senses and know what areas you are strong in and what areas need working on. You are really beginning to understand yourself. You will….

~Have a moment of powerful psychic intuition that is uncontrolled
~You might see shadows and shapes around you
~You might hear words or phrases
~You might have moments of strong communication with your companions.
~You might have moments were you feel them
~You will have dreams of your companions
~You will have lucid experiences with them
~You will develop a basic communication system to interact with them
~Your senses will begin to stabilize
~You will have routines with your companions and know how they work
~Have moments where you see them very clearly
~Have moments where you can hear them very clearly
~Have moments where you can sense them very clearly

At this stage of the game you have a good handle on yourself and you should experiment. Try new exercises, try new things and experiment with your skills and abilities. See if you can expand and awaken new abilities in yourself. The exercises that you are performing push them deeper. This means that you should recreate the exercises daily and see where they take you. If you practise and push yourself your third eye will grow and you will awaken new layers of skills and abilities. The more you practise the better you become, the more committed you are to your exercises the stronger your skills will become. Find one or two exercises or a consistent routine that works for you and really push it. Try new things but stay true to your routine.

Stage Three -Strong Sensations – At this stage your third eye is beginning to be comfortable with its abilities and how it connects to and works with your physical body. You have a stronger sense of the energies going on around you and your chakras are in a higher state of arousal. They work together to interpret the energies that are coming in through the third eye. At this stage of the game you have a pretty good handle on what you can do, but you will want to develop an exercise plan to strengthen your skills and also work with your third eye to embrace and open new skills. At this stage…

~ You may notice things in your environment, music changing, things moving, things happening, coincidences, symbols.
~ You can see the shadows of your companions and you can begin to make sense of what they are doing
~ You are able to get strong smells that would otherwise go unnoticed
~ You can see your companions in your mind’s eye and get visuals and images
~ You can hear them and have ways of communicating with them
~ You are able to feel and sense their energy
~ You can have dreams with them and uncontrolled Astral projection or OBE with them.
~ You will experience their energies on your skin and have sensations from your companions touching you.
~ Have fun with your companions and know them and their personalities
~ Able to tell them apart and get a sense on how they sound and talk
~ Feel them and touch them

At this stage you can have a lot of fun! Stay on track with your routine but really experiment. Have fun with your gifts and skills and see how far you can go. Set goals for yourself and push those goals. There is a lot of fun that you can have with them and a lot that you can grow and develop. The more you push things the stronger your skills will be and the more fun you can have with them.

Stage Four – Full Sensations – At this stage you have acquired a third eye that is working flawlessly with the rest of your senses and you are tuned in to the spiritual world. Your third eye, nervous system, chakras, body are all working together to translate the spiritual energies that are around you. You have control of your abilities and you know yourself pretty well. You know your companions and know who is who and what they are doing. You have a really good grasp of what is going on in the spiritual world. At this stage it is all about going deep. You want to have a solid exercise routine and continue to work your skills pushing them, experimenting with them and trying new things with them. At this stage…

~ You know who is who and can tell whose energy signature belongs to which companion
~ You can tell when you are being touched, stroked, you can feel them and focus on feeling the sensations.
~ You can hear them and hold full conversations with your companions even a group of them at a time and you can tell who is talking to you.
~ You can taste them and you know how each of your companions tastes
~ You can smell them, if you have a spiritual olfactory sense you will know the aromas that your companions have
~ You will be able to have Lucid Dreams whilst interacting with them, have controlled astral experiences
~ You can tell who is shifting the environment around you and why they are doing this
~ You can tell the difference in your companions energies.
~ You can see them walking about, interacting with each other and know what they are doing
~ You can joke around with your companions and understand their difference language patterns and humour.
~ You can tell the difference between them
~ You can have physical stimulations from them
~ You can receive messages and inspirations from them and hear their stories

Beyond this the sky’s the limit, you can develop your skills and it is an infinite well of possibilities. They say the ancient Egyptians had 365 senses… we have 5 known to us and about 20 psychic ones that can be categorized, though there are much more. Be patient with yourself and be open to every possibility. There is a hell of a lot lying dormant and asleep in us, just waiting for the right time to be awakened.

Queen of Magic, Witches and Ghosts,

hecate-witch-goddess-678x381

Call upon Hecate when you find yourselves standing at a crossroads for she is known as the Queen of Magic, Witches and Ghosts, she is a guardian of the spirit world and can see deep into the unseen with her dark intuitive magic. She is connected with the dark aspect of the Moon and the magic that is found in the shadows often accompanied on her travels by an owl, a symbol of wisdom.

She is a protector of travellers as well and those who find themselves in very dark, lonely places, she is a Goddess of seeing deeply into the future, into the threads of the different paths that lay before us and into the darkness. She can see right through into the Underworld she holds great power there, she works with us in times of deep change and release.

She helps us to let go of what is not longer working for us and stunting our ability to grow, she brings us the message that it is time to step away from the familiar and venture deep down into our own depths so we can really see into the truth that lies there.

She calls to us into the darkness to see the truth that lies beyond the veils we hide behind, change is never easy.

But the Goddess Hecate is there to walk alongside us, she imparts her sight, her wisdom and her deep knowing to us and tells us to trust in our intuition and that sometimes there is need for a leap of faith on our path when moving forward.

She calls to us to follow the wild path of the ancient witch within our being and too heed the messages that are calling to us and to trust our inner sight, she tells us not to fear the power that is in our veins but to embrace it.

Her message is for us to know that there is no such thing as a right or wrong choice when we are standing at the crossroads, she tells us that in times when we feel that we are not ready to move, we must nourish and honour all that we are to the fullest in the here and now, just give yourself space to allow the answers to come.

When we honour ourselves, even if we are in a place where we do not want to remain, the answers flow and come when we let go of needing to guide them in a certain direction or outcome. Hecate tells us to trust in our inner knowing and guidance that when the time is right for us we will make the right choice.

I call upon Hecate while I sleep, for she can lead us to see things differently ourselves included and help us find greater understanding of our selves and others especially like me you are questioning your friendships and relationships with others.

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.

Shell Magic

tumblr_p4ggdf60MG1v8d5b1o1_500

Long before new age shops our ancestors turned to nature for their power objects, seashells in particular have a long history of magical uses, as they were associated with the powers of various sea gods and goddesses of different cultures.

Properties

Being born of the ocean, shells are associated with the element of water, they are also associated with the moon, which drives ocean tides. Both the element of water and the moon have strong feminine energies that are receptive in nature, so shells are primarily used in magic to draw things you desire into your life.

Preparation

Shells taken from the ocean don’t need ritual preparation for magical uses; however, if your shells were bought from a store or have been stashed in a box for a while, they may benefit from cleansing and recharging. To do this, place your shells in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt. Set them aside to soak for a day or overnight. Recharge them by setting the bowl in the sun or under the light of the full moon for several hours.

Love

One of the main symbols for Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, is the seashell you can invoke the power of Aphrodite for love spells using shells by wearing seashell jewellery or hair ornaments to attract a mate. Use a hinged seashell with the two parts still attached as a powerful love talisman to keep two lovers together. Write the initials of the lovers on the inside of the shell, one on each side, then seal it shut with glue.

Prosperity

Many cultures used shells as a form of currency. Cowrie shells were used in Africa and North America, and Native Americans used wampum, beads made from clam shells as money. Because of this, shells are also suitable for money spells. Fill a small green or gold pouch with seashells, a silver coin and mint, which is a money drawing herb. Hang the bag where you do business, and rub it when you desire prosperity. Place a small seashell in your wallet or purse to continually keep money coming to it.

Protection

Protection is a shell’s primary purpose in nature, as it is made to keep small, defenceless sea creatures safe from harm, again because of this, shells have strong protective energies. Many cultures in coastal areas use shells in folk magic to protect the home by placing strings of shells over windows and doors. Necklaces of strung shells can be worn by children to keep them close to home and safe from harm. Some believe by placing a small, round shell on the collars of your pets will keep them safe should they wander from home.
