The Four C’s: Cat’s Angel Message for February 18, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

The secret of making dreams come true can be summarized in four C’s. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy; and the greatest of these is Confidence. – Walt Disney

218: Even though spring hasn’t arrived yet (in the Northern Hemisphere at least) our Spiritual Helpers are asking us to start our mental spring cleaning early. By doing so we will be inviting prosperity and abundance into our lives. Open the doors and windows within your entire being and kick out any negative nasties that are lurking in the corners. make room for new personal growth just as Mother Nature makes room for hers. at Imbolc we started planting our “Thought Seeds”, which when nurtured and cared for provide us with new things (new opportunities, growth, abundance etc.) that will help us on our path. Let go of negative thoughts and self doubts and open yourself to  a balanced form of giving and receiving. As you do this remember that giving and receiving is a revolving door and what you send out comes back. So be conscious of sending our positive thoughts, intentions and good vibes. This will ensure a bountiful harvest that you can enjoy!

Archangel Jophiel shows us how to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us as well as the beauty within us. The Ascended Master Krishna teaches us how to bless all situations with love so that we are able to reap the rewards of our efforts and the Roman Goddess Vesta who oversees hearth and home. She helps us to clear space (both in our physical home and our inner home) to make room for new things and teaches us the value of letting go of what we no longer need.

Our Sacred Stone for today is Unakite. This mottled green and pink stone is one of vision. It can be used to help us ground and to balance our emotions. Unakite helps us to transform negative past experiences into something more manageable and helps us to navigate past them so we can move on to better things.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Cat’s Bit’s & Pieces: Celtic Tree Month of Ash – February 18 – March 17


 Celtic Tree Month of Ash – February 18 – March 17

“The Ash Tree is thought to contain the key to Universal knowledge and understanding within it’s winged seeds.” (author unknown to me)
Tree Information:

The mighty ash tree can grow up to 130 feet in height, it can be found in Europe and North America and is a member of the Olive family. This tree will stop growing when it reaches approximately 60 years old. It’s believed that by that time the tree has obtained its full growth potential. Ash trees are easily recognized by their black buds, small springtime flower clusters and the inch long winged seeds that stay on the tree until autumn when they fly off like tiny helicopters. The leaves of this tree grow in multiple oval leaflets and provide some nice orange to purple fall color.

Ash is a hardwood tree and it’s wood is strong, flexible and shock resistant. It for these reasons that it is used for making oars for boats, ax handles, sports equipment and wagon wheels. Ash was also a favorite of the ancient Celts who used it for spear shafts.

Ash spears were considered a powerful magical tool of Celtic Shamans, even more so than the wand. It was a symbol of the Shamans strength of will and personal power.
The ancient Egyptians also used ash wood for bows and arrows, and had great quantities of it imported. Wiccans and Pagans traditionally use it for making Besom handles.

Ash Lore:

The Celts associated the ash tree with sea and the underwater kingdom of Tethys. It is also associated with the underworld and sacrificial deities, representing leading the soul into the afterlife. Celtic myth calls Ash the tree of enchantment and it is said the the Welsh Magus Gwydion made his wands from its wood. Druid wands were made of ash as are the pipestems of the sacred Lakota pipes.

This tree also appears in Norse myth as the world tree Yggdrasil, World Tree or Cosmic Ash. This tree spans the the universe. Roots deep into the earth and the heavens supported by its mighty branches. The ash tree was seen as spanning the world and the world within each person. The ancient Druid phrase ” Know yourself and you will know the world” pretty well sums it up. It also shows us how we are linked with the world around us.

In Magic

In magic the ash tree (wood, leaves, seeds) can be used in the following spells (charms etc.), creative endeavors, protection, attracting things, love, healing, fertility and transitions.

Charms of ash wood were used for protection against storms and drowning. It was also used as a love charm. You were to place an ash leaf in your left shoe and then you would be sure sure to meet your future spouse. Double leaves were lucky as were leaves with equal sections on both sides of the center leaf vein. However you would be unlucky in love if the ash tree on your land didn’t grow seeds every year.

As a magical name Ash is perfect for a true warrior and leader, one who is comfortable with themselves and their abilities. It is generally thought of as a mans name but could also be used for a strong woman.

Born in the Month of Ash 

People born in the month of Ash tend to be ambitious but with an egotistical side. They also tend to overachievers and need to be the best in everything they do. They do not care for criticism earned or not which makes them highly sensitive. On the upside they are reliable, intelligent with artistic talent, and make faithful lovers. Ash people also seem to have a dual personality which makes it hard for others to understand their true nature and motives behind their actions.

Correspondences for Ash:

Names: Venus of the Woods, Tree of Water, Hoop Ash, Rowan
Deities: Eostre, Frigg, Frey, Dagda, Odin, Hel, Llyr, Poseidon
Sacred Stones: Quartz Crystal, Coral

A Living Expression: Cat’s Angel Message for February 17, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

Your world is a living expression of how you are using and have used your mind. – Earl Nightingale

217: Do you remember the old tv commercial that said “A mind is a terrible thing to waste?” Well there’s a lot of truth in that statement. By using this amazingly powerful gift we are capable of doing and manifesting great things. The key is to focus  on:
  • Things that bring you joy
  • Things we want to improve in our lives and for the lives of our loved ones.
  • Staying true to ourselves and believing that we are worthy.

Today the angels are letting you know that your positive thoughts and intentions have been heard and that you are headed in the right direction. You have so many good  reasons to be optimistic about your future.  Grab your courage and embrace your power this helps the angels to help you in more ways than you can imagine. Good things are headed your way so stay focused on what you want to achieve. it’s a win-win situation!

Archangel Raziel helps us to  create and manifest our goals and dreams. The Celtic Goddess Aeracura can also help in the manifestation process and reminds us to adopt a carefree attitude which is at the heart of abundance and the Hindu God Ganesh removes all obstacles from our path.

Our Sacred Stones for today are:

Tiger’s Eye helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions.

Zincite removes energy blocks gets our life force flowing, which aids the manifestation process.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Steering Clear Of The Swamp: Cat’s Angel Message for February 16, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.


Life only appears complicated when one is worrying.
Relax, and life becomes simple again.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

216: We all struggle with material concerns and although we do our best to maintain a positive outlook there are times when we find ourselves stuck in the “Swamp of  Worry &  Fear”. This little side trip happens to everyone, it’s normal. The key is in having faith in yourself to  make things happen even when the cards seem stacked against you. The Universe and its helpers are reminding us that when the swamp beckons to take a moment and find your center. Let go of fear and worry and focus on what’s good in your life, Embracing gratitude allows us to gain clarity and focus. This helps us to start building a bridge through the Swamp and while we may get out feet muddy our gratitude keeps us from becoming stuck.

Archangel Chamuel helps us to find what is lost (including ourselves) and promotes the  focus and clarity we need to navigate safely. The Hindu Goddess Green Tara helps us with immediate assistance when we are in desperate need and the Ascended Master Buddha helps us to stay balanced in this ever shifting world.

Our Sacred Stones for today are:

Apophyllite to help us overcome anxiety, worry and fear. It calms  and helps us to release negative thought patterns.

Sunstone helps us to find our optimism and enthusiasm as it teaches us to nurture ourselves instead of beating ourselves up. It brings good fortune and luck

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Feb. 16, 2018 ” A Simple Reminder”

Happy Friday,

Let’s end the work week with a reminder. Life is too short to be angry or caught up in other people’s drama. It’s too short to spend your time being scared of what others think. So find that crazy, shiny, sparkly  part of yourself  and invite him or her into your life. When we cease trying to hide who we are, then  personal peace and happiness are easily found!
