Pagan Library: The Witch’s Rune
Darksome night and shining moon
East and south and west and north
To each we sing the witch’s rune
To call the ancient power’s horn
Cup of water, airy sword
A pentacle to touch the earth
Firey wand all in accord
Lady guide us to rebirth
Cord and cencer, scourge and knife
Aparapa witch’s creed
Wakened by ye into life
Come ye as the charm is made
Queen of heaven, queen of hell
Ancient huntress of the night
Join us as we sing the spell
Our love and pleasure are your rite.
By all the powers of land and sea
By the might of moon and sun
As I will, so mote it be
Chant the spell and be it done.

Two days a year, the Northern and Southern hemispheres receive the same amount of sunlight. Not only that, but each receives the same amount of light as they do dark—this is because the Earth is tilted at a right angle to the sun, and the sun is directly over the equator.

“I sing the body electric.”
— Walt Whitman
The water that makes up so much of our bodies is like oceann water. The salt crystals in this water vibrate at ever-changing frequencies. Our hearts are the emotional centers of our bodies, and they put out frequencies that are 10 times the power of the frequencies of our brains.
When we are happy, we vibrate at a higher frequency than when we are angry or sad. Our emotions change the chemical composition of the water in our systems. That’s why happy tears taste different than tears of sadness.
Experiencing physical, emotional and mental stillness harmonizes the vibrational output of the body, heart and mind and we become stronger.
“The message we give our bodies — one of irritation or acceptance — is the message to which our bodies will answer.”
— Deb Shapiro

“Thought works in silence, so does virtue. One might erect statues to Silence.”
-Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)
Silence is the single most important ingredient in our pursuit spiritual growth. Yet how much time do we spend in silence every day? Whether we meditate, or pray, or just sit with nature, silence is like a hallway that we need to go through for the doors of Truth to open to us.

Daily Tarot: Justice
You might prefer to do most things on your own today, but that may not be permitted. Find ways to involve others and enlist help, or simply let them do their part. Wait until tonight to decompress in private. It’s important to keep an even temper and not let others manipulate you emotionally. Your feelings are being strongly projected, so treat others with tact and avoid anger.
