“I conjure thee, O circle of power, that thou mayest be a meeting place of love and joy and truth….”
So begins the invocation off the magic circle. It is well known that magicians and witches work within ‘magic circles’, but very few people realise why – including many who use circles on a regular basis.

When the magician casts a circle, he or she creates a space apart from ordinary life: an interface between the mundane plane of waking consciousness and the realm of the gods and spirits, which we might call the Otherworld. When he or she enters the circle he leaves the ordinary world behind and enters a domain apart: a realm of sacred space and time. Indeed, time often flows differently in the circle, and when the magician leaves it after what may seem a few minutes, many hours may have passed in reality. This recalls stories of sojourns in fairyland – another word for the Otherworld.

When the magic circle is properly built, cast and invoked, it becomes the universe in microcosm i.e. it creates in miniature the entire cosmos. The complete circle represents its oneness, while the divisions of the circle stand for the passing of time and the seasons, the space in which the universe exists, and the substances and energies of which it is made. Every item used within the circle has a symbolic and magical resonance that reinforces these ideas and connections.

Whatever the magician performs within this magical microcosm will be reflected in the macrocosm, or in other words, each ritual act will be made manifest in the macrocosm, whether it is the re-enactment of a seasonal myth or an act of sympathetic magic. Since the circle is also the externalisation of the inner world of the magician and intimately connected with him, any act performed within the circle causes deep changes in the consciousness of the magician him or herself.

The circle is always a place of power, from the wheel of the chakra to the sacred ring of a stone circle. It is a universal symbol of wholeness and completion. When Christian missionaries reached the Native Americans, they asked the people how they saw God and, in answer, they drew the circle of the feathered sun, red feathers pointing both inwards and outwards, showing energy moving both in to the centre and outwards to the circumference, containing everything. In Buddhism the circle developed into the mandala, used for contemplation and visualisation. It represents everything and is a maze through which the meditator travels. The centre of the circle is the sky-door which is a means of reaching heaven or Nirvana.

The whole circle symbolises continuity, eternity, completion and spacelessness: the absence of time and space. As it symbolises what is complete and unbroken, it also symbolises the Deity.

But the circle can be divided: halved, quartered, or separated into degrees and so on. However, far from symbolising dissolution and imperfection, when these fractions are contained within the circle they represent the balance and harmony of such divisions. Think of the famous yin yang symbol, which represents the reconciliation of opposites within the whole. Within the circle, opposites [such as day and night, summer and winter] are united. Within the circle their division is not absolute, but each gives rise to the other, reconciled in the circle of unity.

The Celtic cross [a circle with an equal-armed cross within it] is a pre-Christian symbol representing the circle quartered through the compass points of north, east, south and west. It is an ancient symbol of the sun, which appears to us as a circular disc, passing through each house of the zodiac during the year, strengthening and weakening as it goes, spinning through time and each of the seasons in turn. Thus, the quartered circle represents movement, time, and the passing of the four seasons. It is equal-armed and characterises the balance and harmony of these within the unity of the circle.

The four main compass points of the circle are called the cardinal points. When the magic circle is drawn, it is aligned to the cardinal points of the compass- north, south, east and west. This is not merely symbolic, and the east of the circle should be aligned with the real east and so on. The flow of earth power is north to south. The North Star stands still at the north of the circle and for the Celts it was Caer Arianrhod, the Castle of the Silver Wheel, the entrance to the Otherworld and the place of death and rebirth. The circle must be oriented with the energies of the cosmos.

When the circle is cast by the magician, each direction is invoked in turn and the circle is thus spatially orientated. This operation is often called the summoning or invocation of the Watchtowers.

Each position around the perimeter of the circle represents a position in the station of the sun throughout the year, a stage in the cycle of life:

The north is the point of the circle associated with the winter solstice [Yule], cold, darkness, midnight, starlight, old age and death. However, it is also the point of regeneration, rebirth and life through death, as it is at the winter solstice that the sun is reborn. It then gains strength and grows stronger up until the summer solstice. The north is associated with the element of earth.

The east is the point of the circle associated with the spring equinox. The east is associated with sunrise, dawn and gestation, the beginning of growth; a time of green youth. It is connected with the element of air. In a stone circle oriented to the vernal equinox, the sun will rise directly in the east, over the east stone at the equinox.

The south is the point of the circle associated with the summer solstice, with the zenith of the sun’s strength, midday, with things beginning to ripen, with maturity and the prime of life. It is connected with the element of fire.

The west is the point of the circle associated with the autumn equinox and the completion of the harvest, with twilight, sunset, completion and decline. It is associated with the element of water.

Though there are possible correspondences for every degree of the circle, witches generally concern themselves with four more, the cross quarters:
North east marks the point of Imbolc
South east marks the point of Beltane
South West marks the point of Lughnasa
North West marks the point of Samhain

It should be obvious that there are more than two dimensions possible within the circle. The celestial realms of above, and the underworld realm of below stand above and below the circle, and their powers are called upon, drawn through the axis mundi of the circle as the first step of its casting. Thus the invoked circle is not a two dimensional object, but a sphere, extending below ground and above, in which the magician operates.

The central point represents the place where all powers meet, where all times and places are one. For the Celts it was the spiral or glass castle, a place of regeneration and rebirth. The axis through the centre links all the realms and times. The cardinal points are often called the quarters, which are further associated with the four elements. These are invoked when the circle is cast, so that the ring becomes a place of balanced energies.

The four roads [the four Royal Roads of Power] coming from the cardinal points meet at the centre of the circle. This point becomes the axis mundi, the centre of all things where all times and places are one, from which all things are accessible. It may be symbolised by the pillar, the shaman’s ladder, the world tree or cauldron of renewal. The centre is the place of initiation and rebirth. The spiral or maze dance within the circle moves to the centre, representing death, to the centre to the point of renewal, and outwards again in rebirth.
[This is only one method of casting a circle, and there are many others, but the principle of establishing a boundary between the mundane world and a sacred space where ritual acts are carried out remains the same.]

Set up the altar in the northern quarter of the circle. A low table or chest can be employed as an altar. This should be placed in the north [you might need a compass to fine the cardinal points]. Cover it with a white cloth. Place three candles in holders on the altar. A dish of salt and a dish of water are placed near the front. You will also need a knife which you keep for ritual purposes, which some people call an athame. You can also decorate the altar with seasonal flowers. Place a dish of incense on it.

A candle is placed in each of the quarters, the colours chosen help to resonate with the vibration of that quarter- green for the north [earth], yellow for the west [air], red for the south [fire] and blue for the west [water]. If you can’t get these you can use white candles, but the more you can re-enforce the imagery the more it helps your visualisation. Some people also like to place something that represents the elements in the quarters- a dish of earth in the north, the incense in the east, a flame or candle in the south, a dish of water in the west.

Check that you have everything you need within the circle [remember the matches!] before you start, as once the circle is cast, you will not be able to leave to get it.

Light the incense. The first act that must be performed is to establish the boundaries of the circle. Take the knife and beginning in the north draw the circle round the room. Remember where the point of the knife draws will be the edge of the circle. Include in the circle all the things and people you wish to be within the circle.

I conjure the O circle of power that thou mayest be a meeting place of love and joy and truth a boundary between the world of me and the realms of the Otherworld, containing the power that we shall raise within thee, but a shield and protection against our enemies, both visible and invisible.

Take the knife and place the tip in the bowl of salt saying:
Be this salt dedicated to the Lord and Lady [or whatever deities you call upon] to keep us from evil and protect us in this time.

Take the knife again and place the tip in the bowl of water:
Be this water dedicated to the Lord and Lady [or whatever deities you call upon] to keep us from peril and to purify this place.
Tip the water into the salt and mix them together. Sprinkle clockwise [deosil] around the circle saying:

May we cast from us all evil and darkness, viciousness and malice. May we become that which we must be before the Lord and Lady [or whatever deities you call upon], seeking ill to no one. May we be clean within and without so that we are acceptable before them.

Finish by sprinkling each person in turn.

Next connect the circle to all three realms. Take the knife and stand in the centre of the circle. Point it above and say:
Powers of the worlds above, I do summon, stir and call you up to guard our circle and to witness our rites.
Bring the knife down in a straight line and point it downwards. Say:

Powers of the worlds below, I do summon, stir and call you up to guard our circle and to witness our rites.

The watchtowers are then invoked. Take the knife and begin in the north. The casting of the circle is always begun in the north as this is the place of power that flows from north to south, so the power gateway is opened. Many people do not begin the invocations until reaching the east, as this is the direction of vocalisation. Draw a pentacle in the east and say:
Oh mighty powers of the east, I do summon, stir and call you up to guard our circle and to witness our rites.
Repeat this in the south, west, and north.

Return to the altar and consecrate the altar candles with the words:
I consecrate these candles that they shall represent light and knowledge within this circle.
Light the candles and take one round to light all the quarter candles. If you wish you can carry the dish of incense around the circle.

The work of the ritual is now performed.

When all is finished the circle is dissolved. Take the knife and cut through the boundary of the circle near the east and say:
Mighty powers of the east, thank you for guarding our circle and for witnessing our rites. I bless you in the name of the Lord and the Lady [ or whatever deities you call upon].
Repeat in all the other directions. Cut through the centre and thank the powers of above and below.
Put out the candles and dismantle the temple.


Black Moon

Black Moon

What is the Black Moon, is it another term for Dark Moon? No. Black Moon is when two Dark cycles occur in one given month. It is believed that the time of a Black Moon is a time of great power within the spiritual realms and any magic worked/cast on this night is especially powerful. Black Moons occur once every six to eight years and vary at the time of the year when they appear. The last Black Moon occurred in 2003 May 1st and 30th are the days of the two dark cycles. Previous years are December 1986, June 1992, and October 1997.

This year the Black Moon occurs under the sun sign of Taurus, as well as the Moon rising of Taurus. What does this mean? Well, that magic performed on this night needs to focus on characteristics of Taurus magic. Earth Element, The Bull, Venus, the colour green and Gaia, Isis and Osiris, Cerridwen, Bull of Minos, and Hecate who is ruler of the darker aspects of magic. Hecate is also the ruler of the Underworld who commands death and reincarnation and is the primeval dark mother.
Magic performed in a Black Moon is much of the same as the Dark Moon, only you are performing with a higher level of spiritual energy. So what magic can be performed under a Taurus Black Moon? Well, spells for prosperity, security, love, music and the arts all work good in this moon. Taurus also rules bindings, strength, endurance, and patience. Planting and Farming are good as well as consecrating ones pentacle. Now, magic worked under a Taurus Moon is best performed on a Full Moon, but in the case of the Black Moon you would perform this magic in the opposite of gaining, but releasing anything that is hindering you in these areas of your life. All things associated with our earthly nature are ruled under Taurus. So, if you are having issues with your sex life, this would be a good time to banish or bind the negative energies that surround your life in this area. Work spells that call upon dealing with intimate sexual issues, and physical connection, physical possessions, greed and wealth. Focus on removing what is hindering you in these areas, be it that you are in need of bettering your circumstances or removing circumstances that are in your way and not benefiting you at this time.

The next Black Moon shall occur in the year 2011 during the month of July, the first of the Black Moon’s shall be on the 1st day of July ruled by a Gemini Moon and the second New Moon making it a Black Moon shall be on the 30th day of July, ruled by the Moon in Cancer. Typically, the New Moons are ruled by the same as the ruling Sun in this case the New Moon on the 1st of July should actually be in Cancer not in Gemini as this is during the time of the Sun Sign of Cancer and the second New Moon {Black Moon} is ruled by Cancer Moon when it is during the Sun Sign of Leo, suffice to say that the New Moon of the 1st should be ruling Moon Cancer and the Black Moon of the 30th should be ruling Moon Leo, yet when we look at the Ephemeris both days are ruled by a Cancer Moon.

Yet, one must be wise and careful when working magic during this time, as too in Astrological terms the Black Moon is associated with L—-h, in which we do not speak or spell her name, so during this time it is best as with the Cancer energy in Sun and Moon to be watchful of your health, your children, pregnant women to be protected and to protect from fascination and temptations. Astrologically, depending with which planet she sits within shall determine her nature and what you need to watch out for as far as omens and portends.

Within the 2011 July Black Moon, she will sit in Pisces Retrograded, Pisces being ruled by Jupiter traditionally, in which normally would rule the energy of religion and the higher mind, however, the Black Moon is retrograded, which means that the energies shall be darker and more harmful with the energy being of darker, black magic being cast out into the universe. Sitting first on the 1st day of July in the fifth house, this house represents the children born, aunts, uncles, mothers, however, L—-h’s promise is to harm the children of the Adam and with it being in the child house denotes it is important to protect your children and keep them close by and away from strangers. Here too, she sits in the fixed star Mater, which is translated to mean Hollow Section, meaning no soul, this being where all evil resides.

On the 30th of July, she will sit in the fourth house which represents, the Father, families and those things associated to the those things that occur in the family structure. Here she sits in the fixed star Azelfafage also known as Pi (π) Cygnus, Azelfafage, is a star in the tail of the Swan. As we know this was one of Zeus shape shifted forms in order to lie with Leta and from this she bore twins, one child being the seed of Zeus and the other the seed of her husband, creating Pollux and Helen of Troy and the Constellation Gemini and Castor.

With this specific placement it portends to watch for those things in which are false in appearance that what you are seeing may not be what it really is false words and hidden agendas. Here Jupiter/Zeus is seen as the Dark Warrior where all the residence of dark and darkness resides. Be wise during this time. Protect your children and do not allow strangers into your life or home and watch closely those who try to drive a wedge between relationships, as throughout the entirety of the month she will move throughout all the houses created chaos and havoc.
Specific Lunar Magic

Magic in which can be performed when the New Moon is in Gemini cusp of Cancer is healing to lungs, work on anxiousness, nerves and shoulders. Also, here too is a Cazimi with the Sun and Moon, with Mercury in the same house there shall be throughout the month a change in humanity and their views about Religion. When the Black Moon is in Cancer focus on healing and balancing of moods, breasts, stomach and weight issues, here work on releasing unwanted feelings and emotions. The Moon being in the ninth house on the 1st of July here focuses on psychic workings, dreams and there will understand of the planets through mind communications as well as visions and dreams of beautiful places and positions of prestige. The Moon again on the 30th shall be in the ninth house in Leo and again with Mercury, the Sun and Venus, in which the Sun, and Venus are Cazimi which denotes a time of Prophecy and divination to occur and with Mercury and the Moon too here, shows where humanity shall be affected by Religion to some degree.

Born Old

There is a term “Born Old”, this means that one who is born old is born having learned all lessons that one is to learn in his/her lifetimes. This of course is accomplished through many lifetimes and not just one. Born old persons are born on a spiritual veil, so there powers will be easier obtained through out one’s life. One might consider that, being born old could be a time of the Black Moon, as well as either Samhain or the Winter Solstice, these are times when the veil is the thinnest and spiritual powers and energies are at the strongest.
And one will notice that these are the darker times of the station wheel, so Hecate would rule over one that was Born Old.

Herbal Associations to Hecate:

Garlic, Mandrake, Willow, Aconite, Almond, Lavender, Myrrh, Cypress, Opium Poppy, Mugwort, Hazel, Cardamon, Belladonna, Hemlock, Mint, Dandelion, Lesser Celandine, Hellebore, and Yew.

Familiar Associations to Hecate:

Bull, with the allies of the crane and the bee. Oak, mistletoe and yew. Earth and Fire, South and North, Caomhain and Yule. Bull’s Blood [black bulls wreathed in yew were sacrificed to Hecate], Dog, with the allies of the vine, earth, North East, and Samhain, also associated with lunar goddess. Frog, also called Puddock and associated allies of horsetail, stonechat, horse, and water serpent, water, West and East, Herfest and Ostara. Hare, with associated allies of broom and gorse, cat and stag, earth and fire, East to South East, Ostara and Beltaine. Owl known for wisdom, with the allies of ivy, air, Northwest, and Samhain. Toad, with the allies of sow thistle, horse, earth and North. The toad is associated with abundance and fertility. Ii is both connected lunar and Underworld. Wolf, with allies of hop, blackthorn, rowan, earth, North West to North East, Samhain to Imbolc. Hecate was also know to shapeshift into a wolf.

Now being that this year the Black Moon falls in May and is associated with Beltaine, and new beginnings, growth of seeds planted both in the earth and within ourselves. We can work magick for renewal, procreation, and fertility. This is time for those of us to begin a new journey within this station on the wheel.

In all things when working with the Other Worlds it is best if you do not know what you are doing to leave well enough alone, and when natures and energies are like this it is best to work the opposite to defeat the negative and evil with the power of the Light and Sun.

Feb Snow Full Moon/ 2/22/2016

On the 2nd of February we will be having our Full Moon, which traditionally is called the Snow Moon. This is because it is the time of year when the snow is heaviest on the earth, it is on the 2nd month the 22nd day of 2016. We have a lot of two’s in this full moon. In numerology it adds up to the number 6 which is sacred to Venus, Diana, Janus and the Heart, the heart being the soul the Ka in which all truths are revealed from within. It is the number of the Human Soul the Ka force, it also unites Fire and Water and is the number of musicians, writers and the arts, so this full moon would be a great time to go into your own soul, your ka and seek what you want to manifest into this world to make a difference.

The Moon is in Virgo which is hazy for the energy of the Moon as Virgo is both a moveable and fixed sign ruled by Mercury on the night side. Traditionally Virgo ruled the 12th house before it was moved to the seventh house in the chart. It is the sign of magic and medicine and much healing is done at this time through the art of magic.

This is a rear occasion as there are many 2 twos surrounding this moon and it brings about our dual sides of our nature the dark and light. The ka within us for many we do not understand or accept that we have both the light and dark and that our energy is androgynous when we accept that we are dark and light and of both energies masculine and feminine we can begin to learn how to find that balance of Virgo’s Scales in our lives and then there lies the true healing we all seek or have found.

Many Blessings to all on the Full Moon this Feb.moon


Planets and our Fate

I have been seeing a lot of this in clients charts at birth, many wonder why they have so many afflictions throughout life. The eighth house is the house where many issues arise and it said that when you have a good planet in this house you will receive damage from good men, but if those same planets are well they will bring good things into your life.

Many do not believe that the planets, the fixed stars, the motion in which they travel or for that matter the heavens have any say in our lives. Yes, the planets are there, their nature, effects , energies and more have existed from billions of years and it is the technique in which was used by the Sumerians, and all those cultures prior to modern inventions. The Sumerians were the first inventors of all knowledge we have today, they were the first to define how the stars related to below the heavens events. When it is a good time for building they used the planets, for the planting of the crops they used the planets, for marriages they used the planets, for reading the signs of war they used the planets, for harvesting they used the planets.

We are all created from the same force in this great big universe, we have different personalities, likes, dislikes, beliefs, interests and more, this is what defines us. Yet, we are all born of a certain path of fate and in all these things it is those planets that rule us when we are born that predicts all of these things within us. Yes, we are taught but in the of our fate, we are our Destiny.

Mercury Retrograde Astrology Reading Special Offer!!!

mer4Once again Mercury is  in Retrograde and again, in the sign of Cancer, there have been a lot of emotions flying about, quarrels, influxes, miscommunication, assumptions without the facts and more.  Mercury gets a bad rap and we have to remember there are 5 planets and then the Celestial Sun and the Luminary the Moon all of this goes into what energies are moving around.  Also it may be that your chart does not have Mercury in this sign or in Retrograde, so the Retrograde will not necessarly affect you like others.

When Mercury is in Retrograde he is simply moving backwards a bit off from his normal self and yes it can be frustrating but we cannot always lay blame on him alone, we must consider all the other planets, are they in detriment, term, face, exaltation, triplicity are they with their natural enemy or are they in a good position, are they too in Retrograde themselves all of this makes for a good pot of cooking or a bad pot of poison, it makes for getting things accomplished or having them take some time, and of course holding off until a later date.

This is not the best time to be doing new contracts, negotiations, promotions, and anything to do with the signing or communication.  If so you will come into some conflicts and feelings will be hurt and emotions will run high.  With Cancer, Cancer being best when in the Moon sign of Cancer, it is emotional, feeling, psychic energy, communications with the Other-side, and those persons who are of  hidden tendencies will reveal this face of themselves and it will manifest during this particular retrograde, as was the last Mercury Retrograde I wrote about.  Last year his position was in the same place, which means he will fall in all the other water signs this year, he first was in Pisces now in Cancer and lastly in Scorpio.

Normally when Mercury is in Cancer he is very compassionate, though lacking patience and very intuitive and psychic by nature.  He aids us in communication with the dead and those spirits and elements, it also aids in mediation and allowing ourselves to see into our own emotions.

Tempers will be high right now, as we also have to look at where Mars is, Mars is in detriment and with Libra which is ruled by Venus and the night side of Venus she reveals her darker side at this time.  Saturn is in Scorpio and in retrograde as well, so here we have Saturn in trip and with his natural enemy so we have again more fire energy burning the earth this leads to aggression and angry situations will arise.

Through this retrograde I will be offering my Annual Readings at a discounted price, I will be offering them for $100.00 that is a savings of $30.00 from my normal price.

Can the Moon Affect Healing?

This is a great article, and as a healer as well as a Traditional Astrologer and Spiritual Mentor I work with energy all the time, I have done readings for people who have gotten ill and this is called Medical Astrology made popular by Nicholas Culpepper with the focus on the location and sign in which the Moon was located in when one became ill, and following its path would show how long an illness would afflict that individual.
Also in Medical Astrology there is a great work that was at one point (I do not know about today), written by H.L. Cornell which focuses on the astrological position of the planets and the Moon when looking at certain afflictions in the body and mind in a client.
Personally I think this work should be used today by practicing medical doctors it would be of a great benefit to those diagnosing dis-eases today.  Many diseases can be found when looking at the specific location of the planets, Moon or signs in one’s native chart.
An example being when one has Saturn in Virgo in the tenth house shows the child born with either some form of disfigure or mental issues.  This is also true when one has Aquarius in the twelfth house on the issue of mental issues.
If more modern-day medical doctors, medical as well as psychological used Medical Astrology in their practices I believe so many more dis-eases would be cured and a way to pin point in one’s life when it occurred how to target the treatment to relieve this aliment quicker.
The Moon is the Mother of the signs in Cancer being it’s home sign.  It is the sign of the natural mother, the home, the heart, compassion and healing.  The Moon came before the light and is powerful in her perigee and apogee.
