Daily Magick Snippets
The Athame or Magic Knife is not a cutting tool, it is used =pecifically to direct energy raised during a ritual. It is usually a dull, double edged knife and has a black or dark handle (dark colors absorb power). A sword can be used in place of the Athame, but I don’t recommend it unless you have a lot of room.
Associated with Fire and as a phallic symbol related to the god.

HEALTH AND HELP
“More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.”
— Mother Teresa
If we are prompted to ask for spiritual blessings for ourselves or others, how do we best do this?
Speaker Kimberly Herkert offers that it is best to simply ask the divine for health and help. As human beings, we are not capable of seeing the big picture for anyone’s situation. As a result, we are not able to judge what is best for anyone, including ourselves.
The Higher Power always knows best, and the general prayer for ‘health and help’ acknowledges the wisdom that exists there and our faith in divine will.
“God answers prayer in His own way, not ours.”
— Mohandas Gandhi

Second, while taking that baby step, imagine the entire world going bonkers over your phenomenal talent, standing in line to catch a glimpse of you, writing books about your childhood, and asking their social media friends how come you’re so totally cool.

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune
Restlessness and boredom could slow you down and take you off on some unintended tangent. If you can’t break free of the usual routine today, do what’s necessary and perhaps schedule more delicate tasks for another time when it will be easier to be precise and attend to details. Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow
