Tetraktys: Glamour Magick & Self Care for Witches: How to Have a Magickal Beauty Routine

Hello witches! Let’s talk about beauty magick! I was reluctant to write about that topic because there is a lot of misinformation about it. For instance, on the internet you can find all kinds of “spells” that are supposed to change your eye color or make you loose weight. On top of that, there are a lot of beauty products that are branded as “witchy” to attract a broader audience.

Daily Tarot: The Hermit

Think twice before you speak or act and avoid any slip up or oversight that could make extra work for you tomorrow. Exercise more discretion, check the facts, and don’t automatically believe everything that you’re told. Be clear that you’re not suspecting the world of lying to you; you’re simply being prudent and cautious. It shows how much you care about getting things set right for everyone.

Today’s Deity: Bes

Bes is an Ancient Egyptian deity worshipped as a protector of households, and in particular, of mothers and children and childbirth. Bes later came to be regarded as the defender of everything good and the enemy of all that is bad. While past studies identified Bes as a Middle Kingdom import from Nubia, more recent research indicates that he was present in Egypt since the start of Old Kingdom

Extensive research shows that an evident lack of grounding which has to do with the development of an advanced disease also termed as “electron deficiency syndrome” It’s not usual for people to spend whole days grounded. However, it is already the new standard norm, and it was not quite unnatural till manmade shoes are being worn out something that hindered grounding.

EarthSky News: Young moon, Mercury, Mars on June 4 to 6

Start looking for the young moon in the evening sky around June 4, 2019. Will anyone see it on June 3? Possibly, but by June 4 we should all be able to see it, near the sunset point, shortly after sunset. Elusive Mercury, innermost planet in our solar system, is also in that part of the sky. Red Mars – now rather faint – shines above Mercury

Patheos-Pagan: Being Yourself: A Survival Guide

The world can be full of judgmental and limiting people, no matter what your spiritual path involves. Oddly enough, I have compassion for the gatekeepers of knowledge. They use their knowledge as both a life raft and a shield, and it must be exhausting at times.

Inner Journey:

ASK YOUR BODY FOR ADVICE!

“The body has its own way of knowing, a knowing that has little to do with logic, and much to do with truth, little to do with control, and much to do with acceptance, little to do with division and analysis, and muchto do with union.”
— Marilyn Sewell

Are you aware of your body’s wisdom? Our bodies usually know us better than our minds do. If you have a decision to make, consult your body before making a final choice.

Reflect on an option before you and then pay attention to your body. Are you breathing deeply or barely at all? Are your muscles tense or relaxed? Is your energy blocked or flowing?

Your body knows what it likes and it feels good when it’s happy. As your body is the source of your vitality, your motivation, your inspiration and enthusiasm and most importantly, your intuition, it’s best to get that part of you on-side if you are venturinginto a new activity.

“When you are saying that you are happy and you are not, there will be a disturbance in your breathing. Your breathing cannot be natural. It is impossible.”
— Osho

“Our inner guidance comes to us through our feelings and body wisdom first — not through intellectual understanding. …The intellect works best in service to our intuition, our inner guidance, soul, God or higher power — whichever term we choose for the spiritual energy that animates life.”
— Christiane Northrup

Progress

“Our moral progress may be measured by the degree in which we sympathize with individual suffering and individual joy.”

-George Eliot (1819-1880)

Progress is learning more about who we are. Progress is understanding and relating and empathizing with other people because we realize that we are all in this together. There is no separation between us. When we can truly experience that Oneness, we will have made real progress!

-Lissa Coffey

Elephant Journal: New Moon Meditation: Sowing Seeds for Love, Joy & Abundance

Once upon a time I was keen on manifesting my desires. Now, I’m more interested in surrendering to the Divine’s plan for my life.
That’s not to say I don’t experience any desire for particular things and experiences. It’s just that I’m aware of the old adage, “Be careful what you wish for”. What we desire is not always for our highest good.
And equally, what we desire may be entirely for our highest good and be fully aligned with Divine’s plan for us

At nightfall tonight, or any June evening, look in a general southward direction for Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the Maiden.

Spica is your jumping off point to three faint constellations: Corvus the Crow, Crater the Cup and Hydra the Snake.

Patheos-Pagan: Why Can’t There Be Christian Witches?

I noticed someone on social media lamenting a Christian Witches convention that took place in Salem Massachusetts this past April. Never mind that the event is already over with, I’m much more bothered by the policing of both the Witch and Christian worlds, and the idea that there’s “no such thing as a Christian witch.”

Inner Journey:

THE GIFT OF JOY

“Joy is prayer – Joy is strength – Joy is love – Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy.”
— Mother Teresa

Some people unconsciously believe it’s not okay to feel more joyful than the people around them. Out of a mistaken sense of caring, they squelch their joy and tune in to the sadness of the one they are with.

In truth, joy is one of the greatest gifts we can give to people around us. Those who are unhappy need our joy, not our sadness.

“Never miss a joy in this world of trouble … that’s my theory! … Happiness, like mercy, is twice blest: it blesses those most intimately associated with it and it blesses all those who see it, hear it, touch it or breathe the same atmosphere.”
— Kate Douglas Wiggin

A Note from the Universe

Let’s say you live by a great, abundant, life-giving ocean, though at a very primitive time in history, and so you are very, very hungry. And let’s further say that you’re given a choice: a wading pond full of fish or fishing lessons; enough fish to last you for several weeks, or the skills to tap an unlimited supply. Which would you choose?

Ah-ha.

But, what if learning to fish meant multiple solo attempts to test out your new skills, during which you’d likely feel anxious, uncertain, and a little confused? And that while your instructor would never be far, doting over you like a mother does a young child, you’d forget this, and sometimes feel all alone. Would you still choose the lessons?

Oh, re-a-l-l-y?

Can you see me, now?

Progress

“Frozen food is not progress.”

-Russell Baker

Technology has offered us some amazing conveniences – but at what expense? Do we hole up with our computers rather than socialize with our fellow travelers? Do we make a habit of eating fast food rather than enjoying the wholesomeness of something freshly prepared at home? Where, for the sake of “progress,” have we gone awry? When we remember the lessons we have learned in the past and build on them, then we make progress. It’s not necessarily about making life “easier” but about experiencing the beauty that is already there.

-Lissa Coffey

Different Roads: Cat’s Angel Message for April 24, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

Different Roads: Cat’s Angel Message for April 24, 2019

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost. – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


424:  Today the Universe is asking us to stop and consider what is important to us. Our lives and personal well being are a work in progress, and everyday we are faced with choices and options that help us on our path. Too often we put a temporary band-aid on something and hope it holds or we find ourselves wasting time on things (people, activities, energy) that keep us from moving forward. The key to our personal evolution lies in focusing on the things that serve us best. Making choices that resonate with our inner core and bring us a sense of fulfillment and joy keep us true to ourselves and on the right  path. Connect with your spiritual helpers today and ask for help or just talk with them. By strengthening your connections it becomes easier to manifest your desires and goals into reality.


Archangel Michael helps us to find the courage and direction that we need to work through any obstacles that pop up. He teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence. The Ascended Master Saint Germain provides courage and direction as we navigate life’s ups and downs. He helps us when dealing with those well meaning people who try to push us away from our path. And, the Hawaiian goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and sense of purpose. She is a goddess of empowerment teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. She  says, “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include: Labradorite to relieve fear and insecurity caused by old hurts and disappointments. It also strengthens our faith as it removes the projections of others that are holding us back. 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 and Eulite (Hypersthene) which helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

daily Angel Message sms

The Key: Cat’s Angel Message for April 3, 2019 

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best. – Epictetus


43:  Everyone needs a loving support system, which consists of friends and family. However we also have help in the Divine realms in the form of the angels,the ascended masters or our patron Goddess/God. By sharing our hopes, dreams, fears or even grief with our support systems the wheels begin to turn and things are set in motion and  we elevate our  overall success and healing rate. We then find that we are able to work the small miracles that enrich our lives as well as appreciating the tiny miracles that bring peace and joy on a daily level. The Universe is also encouraging us to take a look at both lifestyle and home. Ask yourself what changes you can make that will bring more balance, peace and good vibes into your situation and environment.


Archangel Jophiel helps us to bounce back from negative situations by showing us all the good things in other areas of of our lives. Remember that goodness and beauty surround us all the time, so stay open to receiving these blessings. The Ascended Master Serapis Bey brings us the necessary spiritual insight we need when dealing with negative people, feelings or situations. By surrounding yourself with loving energy you can find the peace you need to deal with off color moments. And the British/Celtic goddess Sulis reminds us to “Look to the elemental power of water for healing and comfort. Water has the power to cleanse away heavy and harmful energies from your body, your spirit and energy field as well.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following:  Rose Quartz, this essential healing stone truly helps on so many levels. It’s gentle energy soothes our emotions and hearts. It helps us to both give and receive love and shows us a positive side to the world around us. Amazonite helps to soothe emotional trauma as it eases stress and worry and Pink Beryl (Morganite) helps us to overcome resistance to healing. It also promotes awareness of any unfulfilled emotional needs and feelings that need to be expressed.

Creating Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for February 27, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

Creating Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for February 27, 2019 

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


Life isn’t about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself.
– George Bernard Shaw


227:  Today the Universe is asking us to focus on our Life Path. Your Life Path is the most important number in your numerology chart. It is derived from your birth date and it reveals your direction and the lessons you need to learn in this lifetime. Each person’s life path is unique. While we may travel together at times there always comes a point when we branch off to blaze a new trail. Our thoughts and focus guides us and helps us to navigate our chosen path. By setting our intentions to the highest level and expecting the best to happen good things come our way. The truth is that you are the only one who really knows whether the path you currently walk is the right one.


As you follow your path be sure that you occasionally do a self review. Ask yourself:

•Am I where I want to be?

•Does this resonate and bring me joy?

•Is there anything I need to change?

• If it feels good and like where you are headed keep moving forward.But if something feels off don’t be afraid to make the necessary adjustments. Your path should always bring you joy.


Interested in finding your Life Path number? Visit life Path Numbers by Michael McClain: http://www.astrology-numerology.com/num-lifepath.html


Archangel Jeremiel guides us through releasing fear of the future. He is also the angel to call on life reviews and changes. He helps us to clearly see the life changes that we have missed and how learn from past mistakes and move on. The Ascended Master Serapis Bey helps us to release our troubles and offers clear guidance and motivation regarding our own self improvement. And the Egyptian goddess Maat shows us the truth and motivations behind all situations. This helps us on our path by allowing us to navigate freely. She says “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is the Life Path Crystal (a long, thin, clear Quartz Crystal with on or more completely smooth sides.) This crystal helps us to access our path and our direction and it promotes going with our natural flow and following our our bliss.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Where myth and reality meet

We all grew up hearing stories based on myths.

But not all of these images have to stay locked in the realm of imagination. Many famous legends are set in or inspired by real places.

Inner Journey:

PURPOSE BRINGS JOY

“Our purpose is hidden in our joy, our inspiration, our excitement. As we act on what shows up in our life our purpose shows up.”
— James King

For many of us, our joy is truly activated when we get a bigger picture of who we are and why we are here.

Most of us need to enlarge our self-concept. We may see ourselves as a bag of bones but, in truth, we are eternal, multi-faceted and multi-dimensional spiritual beings having a human experience. It’s time to think of ourselves as much larger and granderthan just a physical and emotional being confined in a body.

“There is no more important step you can take than to define your life’s purpose. It develops your sense of belonging to our universe.”
— Arnold Patent

And for extra credit focus on customers more than vendors; smiles more than frowns; possibilities more than risks; options more than commitments; vacations more than overtime; detours more than setbacks; opportunities more than obstacles; and Goldilocks more than the bears.

Today’s Recipe: Chocolate Orange Cashew Oats

This is an awesome way to trick your instant oatmeal into a luxurious textured, full-of-flavour delight. I like to whip this up for my friends who stay over… only takes a few minutes. They think I go through a lot of trouble making it. No trouble! But they can think what they want. 😉

Wisdom

“Wise men hear and see
As little children do.”

-Lao-Tzu (6th cent. B.C.)
Children see things with an open mind and an open heart. Wisdom is not being childish, but rather it is being child-like in our curiosity and wonder. It allowing possibilities to present themselves in front of us. It is marveling at the grandeur of life.

-Lissa Coffey
