Today was the perfect day, literally speaking, to tweak a little magick and give it a special nudge. Although today is Tuesday and influenced by the energy of Mars, I used the hour of Saturn…the energy I needed for my little task. The herbs were wormwood & cloves, salt, and an old hoodoo oil (which I’ll not name here). The candle was black.
I love the feeling inside a cast circle. It was exhilarating and the energy moved easily and well. The spell candle is quietly burning itself out as we speak.
Magick was made…
Tarot Card for the day is…The Sun.
Warmth and light, bright tidings, brilliance– both mundane and magickal, physically and spiritually. Although someone seems to have their ‘head in the clouds’– don’t get too cocksure. If you’re always looking up, you might trip on something below. Also, the phoenix rising from the ashes…pick yourself up and learn from your mistakes– looks like you get a second chance.
I was going through some photos from last fall and came upon this one. I took this picture standing in my livingroom, watching my husband burn autumn leaves in the driveway. As I came from the kitchen, I wondered what the orange glow was. No wonder the neighbors wonder. When we have bonfires, hubby is in charge of the firepit– I imagine he was in a past life too.
I snapped a pic of this tombstone on one of our outings to Ridge Cemetery. It wasn’t that the tombstone was so unusual, it was the fact that this lady was buried all by herself, in a huge wide expanse of ground between the Catholic & Protestant areas. In fact, there’s nothing else in this area except Nell and two willow trees, one of which she was buried under. Why was she so segregated? Perhaps she wasn’t ‘baptized’ according to Christian code? I guess we’ll probably never know. My girls took an immediate liking to Nell– good vibes, from the grave, though the tree. We stayed and kept her company for sometime. I have a feeling we would’ve loved her smile.
My boy, Salem, has claimed several unusual spots around the house for himself. This one is literally in ‘The Witch’s Corner’– though he didn’t get to keep this cozy nest, because eventually I needed the shelf space. He also has a penchent for sharing the bathroom and hates closed doors– he’ll beg to come in with you, even rattling the sliding door if you don’t let him have his way. The first couple times he did this, I thought it was hubby– and I was chewing him out…I open the door– and it’s Salem. Spoiled boy.
