Magick Snippet: Born on Samhain

In Scotland, a child born on the night of Samhain was considered to be gifted with “an dà shealladh” (the Two Sights), which is more commonly known today as “second sight” or the ability of clairvoyance. At Samhain however, it was common for many people to practice the art of divination, females in particular would seek to identify future husbands, and determine if marriage would succeed or fail.

Inner Journey:

STOP THE BATTLES

“When you fight something, you’re tied to it forever. As long as you’re fighting it, you’re giving it power.”
— Anthony de Mello

What are you fighting?

Resistance always brings pain. Examine your struggle. What does your personality want from the situation? What does your soul want? What can you learn from this?

Always strive to mend separation and achieve unity. Always choose love over fear. If you can embrace whatever you are struggling against, the struggle will disappear.

“What you resist persists. And only what you look at, and own, can disappear. You make it disappear by simply changing your mind about it.”
— Neale Donald Walsch

Earth
“What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)


The earth is our home. Home sweet home! We need to give it love, to give it attention. When our house gets run down we fix it up, do some spring cleaning, add a fresh coat of paint. The earth needs the same kind of care. Keeping our waters clean, and our skies clear – all of that is our responsibility. We can start right where we are.

Inner Journey:

PROCRASTINATION

“Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.”
— Don Marquis

Most of us struggle with procrastination — the ‘I’ll do it later’ syndrome. If this is one of your key time wasters, take time to become more aware of your behaviour.
• Identify what you are procrastinating.
• Identify why you have not done these things. Seek out your deepest reason.
• Is there a fear underlying your reason? There is for most people.

We typically procrastinate because of unclear goals, lack of information and/or skills, fear of moving into new territory, fear of failure or success, feeling overwhelmed, lack of time due to over-commitments, poor timing, and general disorganization.

“Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started.”
— David Allen

And, just for fun: “The best labor saving device is doing it tomorrow.”
— Source Unknown

Contentment
“The better part of happiness is to wish to be what you are.”

-Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536)


There’s an old saying that “Happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have.” When we know who we are, when we understand the truth of our greatness, we will know happiness because we will never wish to be anything other than ourselves.

Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow.

Athame

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.

Third, repeat.

On the mornings of September 29 and 30, 2021, you can see the moon near the two brightest stars of the constellation Gemini the Twins. These stars are Castor and Pollux. The moon will reach its last quarter phase in front of Gemini on September 29 at 01:57 UTC. By clocks in North America, that translates to the evening of September 28. A last quarter moon is a waning moon. So the September 28-29 moon will look half-illuminated, like half a pie. And the next night’s moon will look slimmer, like a fat crescent.

FORGIVENESS BRINGS JOY

“The greatest evil that can befall man is that he should come to think ill of himself.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Do you feel worthy of having joy? Do you feel you deserve it?

The first step to activating our inner joy is to eliminate the blocks to it. We can start by truly forgiving ourselves and all others. Forgiveness calls for a shift in our perception. It is easier to forgive ourselves and others when we really understandthat each of us has always done the very best we knew to do at that time.

“If we don’t forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, whilegrowth is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a larger whole.”
— Joan Borysenko

Daily Tarot: Temperance

A little emotional distance is called for to keep things peaceful and working smoothly. You may be very sentimental or attached to certain issues or other people’s opinions of you but don’t let this rule how the day goes. Don’t let anyone casually or ignorantly hurt your feelings. They may not even know what they’re doing. Stay functional and keep your emotional guards up.

Spirit Library: Surrender Into The Flow
Kate Spreckley


The Equinox creates a potent and significant time with the incoming energies initiating a period of death and rebirth. This is a time of rapid transformation, and as such it is important that we are flexible and ready for change. We cannot predict how change will unfold but we can move with the changes and manage ourselves through the process by staying grounded and present to what is occurring in the moment.

ThoughtCo: Consecrate Your Magical Tools

Why Consecrate?
In many modern Pagan traditions, magical tools are consecrated before use. This achieves a couple of things — one, it purifies the item before it is used to interact with the Divine. Secondly, it removes any negative energies from the tool. This is particularly handy if you aren’t sure of a tool’s past history or who owned it before it came to you.

Imagine standing at the edge of a forest, and that you want to reach the other side.

Yeah, every possible direction, because this is how things are in a forest.

TAKE TIME TO BE STILL

“Work is not always required … there is such a thing as sacred idleness, the cultivation of which is now fearfully neglected.”
— George MacDonald

When was the last time you did absolutely nothing?

Our world is so addicted to productivity that we feel guilty if we’re not doing something. But taking time daily to be still and inactive opens us to the spacious present. It nurtures and restores balance. Give yourself a regular gift of inactivity.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”
— Sir J. Lubbock

Wand
The wand is the tool of invocation and is used to direct energy. It is also used to draw magic symbols on the ground or in the air or to stir the cauldron. Traditional wood for wands is willow, elder, oak, apple, hazel etc. These can be bought, however using a small tree limb (the length between the crook of your arm and forefinger) works just as well. Try not to break one off a living tree, look for one that has fallen on the ground.
It is associated with Air.

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF

“In the final analysis, we count for something only because of the essential we embody, and if we do not embody that, life is wasted.”
— C.G. Jung

Where are you not being true to yourself?

All blocks arise when we’re not being authentic, when we’re not being true to ourselves. We know we’re not being authentic when we feel discomfort of any kind.

When our thoughts, feelings and actions align with our essence, we express the qualities of soul. Always trust that your soul knows what’s best for you.

Believe in yourself and act on your ideas. Give yourself permission to do what you want with your life. Take the initiative to set meaningful goals for yourself and achieve them. Begin to tell yourself why you CAN have what you want!

“A true knowledge of ourselves is knowledge of our power.”
— Mark Rutherford

Communication is the written word as much as it is the spoken word. Just as we must think before we speak, it is important for us to put thought into any correspondence that we send out. We have so many choices with which words we use, and each word carries its own nuances. We need to think about our intent, and carry it through with our overall tone

Spirit Library: Provoking Change (a message from Kate Spreckley)

We are moving through a time of cleansing and renewal as the energy of the Earth increases and expands affecting all of life within the planet. As a result, everything that can be challenged is being challenged and every facet of life on Earth is being compelled to change. This can be a time of great awakening and healing or a time of great distress and pain depending on whether we move with change or resist it.

Inner Journey: FEEL YOUR EMOTIONS

“The key is to not resist or rebel against emotions or to try to get around them by devising all sorts of tricks; but to accept them directly, as they are.”
— Takahisa Kora

Emotions are energy in motion. They bring us information if we are willing to experience them. Unfortunately, many of us are afraid of the energy of emotions and so we automatically resist them. And when we refuse to experience our emotions, we block them up. They become trapped and that entrapment drains our energy and brings continuing discomfort.

Don’t let emotions push you into action or reaction. Just STOP and PAY ATTENTION. Allow them to be and to speak to you. Oncem they are acknowledged, their energy is released.

“Instead of resisting any emotion, the best way to dispel it is to enter it fully, embrace it and see through your resistance.”
— Deepak Chopra

“We have to become more conscious of our feeling-world. By learning to identify the ‘emotional baggage’ and manage our feeling-world reactions, we can view life based on current information instead of being held captive by our past.”
— Doc Childre

“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.”

A Note from the Universe

People are awesome, they care about pretty much everything, everyone, always. It’s just that they’re also so busy believing what they’ve been told, and therefore manifesting it, that they genuinely haven’t noticed that in your gorgeous little planet’s entire history, there’s never been:

•A drought that didn’t end,
•A storm that didn’t clear,
•Lightning that didn’t retreat,
•An earthquake that didn’t still,
•A flood that didn’t recede, or,
•A virus that wasn’t eventually, completely, and utterly overwhelmed by the healthy.

Now, as a rule, I’m not into odds, statistics, or gambling, but it doesn’t take a genius to see that something’s going on “down there,” the deck is clearly stacked, you’ve got friends in some very high places, and none of the “hard and mean” stuff was ever true.

Hit me, baby!

Eyes
“Close your eyes, and you will see.”

-Joseph Joubert (1754-1824)


In many meditations, we close our eyes because we want to block out external distractions. The idea is to go within, to look within. In the silence, in the stillness, we gain great insight. We can see things more clearly.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

It may be fun to take a risk or two, but this is not the day for it. You can fight your way through any difficulty, but why make work for yourself or put yourself in harm’s way? Remember, harm comes in more forms than just what is physical. If you need to blow off steam and exert your power, maybe take it to the gym.

Inner Journey:

GIVING CHOICE

“Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give.”
— David O. McKay

I want to choose the details of my life. Fortunately, I’ve come to appreciate how important it is to give others the freedom to choose their own paths.

None of us wants our choice robbed from us. I can’t know what’s best for anyone but me. So why give unsolicited advice to others and expect them to follow it?

“The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance.”
— Samuel Butler

“What man wants is simply independent choice, whatever that may cost and wherever it may lead.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky

A Note from the Universe

Do you think it would be as much fun if you could trade some of the happiest days of your life for not having to experience some of the saddest?

Do you think it would be as much fun if you could guarantee that some of your dreams would come true, by forgoing others?

How about if only your “good” thoughts became things?

Or… would you still want it all?

I knew it! You take after me.

Waiting
“All good abides with him who waiteth wisely.”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)


This scenario is familiar. Have you ever been in a long line, and the person serving customers is just doing the best that they can. Maybe the place is understaffed, or unexpectedly busy. There always seems to be someone who complains, who is impatient, and who makes the experience more aggravating for everyone around. And then there’s the kind-hearted person who uses the time to chat with the other people in line, who steps up and smiles and thanks the person doing the work. That person makes the experience much more pleasant! Next time you’re in line, observe. And choose to wait wisely!

It may be hard to be serious and stick to those dull but crucial tasks that keep the day running smoothly. Be systematic, cheerful, and don’t let it show if you feel undervalued or underappreciated. Save your sharp wit and cleverness for another time and place. Time spent with younger people or children can lift your spirits and keep things in perspective for you.
