ThoughtCo: Color Magic – Magical Color Correspondences
Color magic is a part of many magical traditions because colors have certain associations. However, bear in mind that some traditions may set their own correspondences that differ from this list.

The minute I walk into a crowded room, my heart begins to race, my breathing becomes shallow, my mouth dries up quicker than a desert, and my palms sweat profusely.
MNN: Snow is teeming with tiny life
Frosty the Snowman famously came to life one day with the help of a magical silk hat. As recent research suggests, however, he and other snowmen might already be more “alive” than most people realize — even if they aren’t dancing around with broomstick canes. That’s because, regardless of how it’s sculpted or adorned, snow itself is often surprisingly full of microbial life.
EarthSky News: Don’t miss the young moon and Venus
From virtually everyplace worldwide on December 27, the moon will be better than one day (24 hours) old as the sun sets. If your sky is clear, you can catch the whisker-thin waxing crescent (and possibly, with much more difficulty, the planet Saturn) at dusk. You’ll surely see dazzling Venus, above them, blazing in Friday evening’s western twilight sky. This young moon will be fresh from its ring of fire eclipse a day earlier.
Patheos-Pagan: The Work of Magic
The work of magic involves transformation, and the first transformation is the shift of perception. And once we establish that anything is possible, then the world as we know it can be flexible. Witches say that the World of Form (that which we perceive with our five senses) is not a limitation.
WHAT IS LOVE?
“When mystics use the word love, they use it very carefully — in the deeply spiritual sense, where to love is to know; to love is to act. If you really love, from the depths of your Consciousness, that love gives you a native wisdom. You perceive the needs of others intuitively and clearly, with detachment from any personal desires; and you know how to act creatively to meet those needs, dexterously surmounting any obstacle that comes in the way. Such is the immense, driving power of love.”
— Eknath Easwaran
“Therefore, when I say that ‘I love,’ it is not I who love, but in reality Love who acts through me. Love is not so much something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a state of being – a relatedness, a connectedness to another mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my efforts.”
— Robert A. Johnson
“When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

“Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.”
-G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
Doesn’t this make you smile? Enlightenment means lightening up – so angels are a good example for us! We can laugh, and play, and see the goodness and beauty in life – and not take ourselves too seriously
Daily Tarot: The Moon
You may be dwelling on your weakness or discomfort, and those things may be real enough, but take heart and know that these things are also temporary and are not going to last much longer. You underestimate or overlook your great powers of recovery and self-healing. You have too much love of life to be kept down for long. Give yourself a break and relax a bit.
