Today’s Chakra Energy Levels 3/17

Today’s Chakra Energy Levels

The Chakras represent the seven primary energy hubs in the body. Life force energy is constantly flowing in and out of these centers. Just as the cosmos is constantly changing, so too are the levels of energy absorbed and radiated by our Chakra centers. The graph below is a representation of the quantities of Chakra energies available today.


Sahasrara – The Crown Chakra represents energies associated with cosmic consciousness, spirituality, knowledge, wisdom and inner peace.
Ajna – The Third Eye Chakra represents energies focused on both physical and spiritual vision. Psychic powers resonate from the Ajna Chakra, as well as your image of the Cosmos as a whole (the big picture) and the many nuances that make your journey unique.
Vishuddha – Throat Chakra is the energy center associated with communication and creativity. Your energy to express yourself verbally and creatively are derived from the Vishuddha Chakra.
Anahata – The Heart Chakra’s energy is concentrated on issues concerning your emotions. This energy fuels your power to love, feel compassion and maintain balance between disparate aspects of your being.
Manipura – The Power Chakra provides the energy that fuels our strength of will, individuality and sense of self-worth.
Svadhisthana – The Spleen or Sacral Chakra supplies the energy we use emotionally and sexually. This is the energy used to connect to others.
Muladhara – The Root or Base Chakra furnishes the energy used to create and maintain our foundation. This is the energy that keeps us on firm ground and provides us with the basic skills to uphold a place in the world.

Your Deck of Ancient Symbols Card for Today


Love indicates that love is either present in our life or a distinct possibility. Be open to all possibilities, remembering that true love is given freely, without condition, and does not have to be earned. This is the kind of love we want to welcome into our life and to give to others. Be open to new ideas, and beware of judging against someone in an unloving manner. When Love appears, return to the place where you can love yourself and then seek out the same love from others.

As a daily card, Love suggests that for those who are currently in a relationship the opportunity to deepen the bond is present. For those who are single, Love implies that the prospect for them to begin a romantic relationship is very strong at this time.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today


Aeon deals with our journey and constant transformation through time. It denotes both endings and beginnings, our ability to redeem ourselves through action, and hope for the future. Aeon teaches us to accept our past–embrace it as an essential component of our being–but not to allow it to keep our spirits from moving towards the future and finding our personal utopia.



 I kindle my soul at the hearth-fires
 of the Kindler of Souls; breath of love,
 breath of light,
 breath of life,
 be upon the embers of my
 Spring-wakening soul.
 Preserve my soul in gladness
 May it flame forth with the sun's
 returning glory.


Goddess, teacher of my soul, I am inspired
every time I contemplate your wonders. As
the world celebrates the coming of Spring,
help me to follow the path of my life and
walk with me. Give me light to meet the
questions of this day.


Goddess, today may I remember all newborn creatures
about to begin their cycle of life. May they live
and love in joyful awareness.


 I make the encircling and go forth today
 under the power of the heavens,
 light of sun,
 radiance of moon,
 splendor of fire,
 speed of lightning,
 swiftness of wind,
 depth of sea,
 stability of earth,
 firmness of rock.
 From the heights, to the depths,
 may I be encircled in love and safety.


 Under the tender cloak of night I clarify my soul,
 out of the evening reach of the wind; 
 without guilt, without shame, without aversion,
 soul-friends and teachers all, help me clarify this day.
 I relinquish all the cares and burdens of my day
 into the deep lap of night.
 May my soul's teacher reshape them into wider pathways
 of understanding for me to walk.


 I refresh my soul in the slowers of Spring,
 drop of light, drop of love,
 drop of life,
 be the blessing on my brow, my heart,
 my hands.
 May my soul be preserved in peace
 from Spring's dawn light,
 till Spring's twilight.


 Creative Son, Skillful Daughter,
 between you the shuttle of life
brightly runs like a child's colorful game.
 In the rhythm of your weaving 
 I am enfolded.
 I gratefully put about my shoulders
 your garment of silence.


 I make the encircling of the crafts
 about me this Spring day:
 delight of poetry,
 majesty of music,
 variety of art,
 vision of seership,
 compassion of healing,
 peace of prayer, spirit of druidry,
 inquiry of science,
 transformation of alchemy,
 Nine crafts about me,
 perfection of skill
 encompass my soul this day.


 Snow-light turns to Spring-light's
 Bride-lights linger in the sky;
 twilight dews the flowers caressing,
 vision's gift through soul-veils fly.


 I kindle my soul at the
 sown-flowers of Spring,
 bud of life,
 bud of light,
 bud of love,
 petals of my heart,
 preserve my soul in peace this day,
 from day's work to night's play.


As Spring awakens all energies from dormancy,
so I call upon my soul's teacher
to show to me how this day has led
me out of isolation...
May the passion of awakening life
be granted to all who journey
through the realm of Spring.


Goddess,Awakener of Spring, at the rising of the sun
I take refuge in your presence: as plants bud and
creatures prepare for the birth of their young,
so do I await the blossoming of my heart in your stillness.
May I walk with you this Spring day.


Goddess, as I wonder at the beauty of the world,
I offer thanks and blessing from my heart's depths.
I give thanks for the places that give me inspiration
and continuity of spirit, especially for __________.
I give thanks for the protective encircling of
the elements.

Love yourself, love your neighbor, love your enemies, but begin with self-love. You cannot love others until you love yourself. You cannot share what you do not have. If you do not love yourself, you cannot love anyone else either. Don Miguel Ruiz

Daily Crystal: Brookite

Brookite can help us to withstand intolerable conditions and flow with the moment. It can attract and retain energy. It is an excellent stone to use to energize chakras, energy fields and environments, including energizing other crystals and minerals. It can help us understand our own “system of beliefs” and help us to correct those beliefs that do not benefit moving forward. It can help rid us of lethargy and apathy, helping us to find our hidden energy and move it toward creative and imaginative situations.

Chakras: Crown, Third Eye
Astrological sign: None

‘May we live in peace without weeping. May our joy outline the lives we touch without ceasing. And may our love fill the world, angel wings tenderly beating.’

Daily Goddess Devotion

Daily Goddess Devotion

I love the gray sky’s of spring.
To let Her rain gently wash away the worries of a mundane world.
To let Her drops beat within your essence like great drums to fill your spirit.
Then as shadows over take Her silvery billows with the night;
To let Her liquid drops upon the roof tops sing a lullaby to your soul.

Runecast for Thursday March 17

Today our rune is Tiwaz of Tyr’s Aett Tiwaz pronounced “tea-wawz” (T: Tyr, the sky god) Honor, justice, leadership and authority. Analysis, rationality. Knowing where one’s true strengths lie. Willingness to self-sacrifice. Victory and success in any competition or in legal matters.

A Ram on a precipice. He concentrates all his energy to get over it. With courage and dedication, you can defeat obstacles. This rune calls on you to show your willpower and concentrate your energy in one direction. If you have difficulties, don’t be frightened. Act like a warrior in battle, believe in your good luck and fight. The more sincerely you believe in your power, the more power and strength you will have. If you are challenged, accept the challenge because it will be to your advantage. In career matters you can achieve almost everything when this rune appears, but only through effort and dedication. The Tiwaz rune also advises you to get help from a strong and brave person. In personal relations, it may indicate a strong individual coming your way, but sometimes it means you must take a more forceful approach yourself to counter-balance a partner’s weakness.

Tiwaz Reversed or Merkstave: One’s energy and creative flow are blocked. Mental paralysis, over-analysis, over-sacrifice, injustice, imbalance. Strife, war, conflict, failure in competition. Dwindling passion, difficulties in communication, and possibly separation. (Note: the reversed or merkstave definitions are included only for reference as they apply to a multi-rune cast and not to a single rune that’s drawn blind from the pouch)

As with all, take only what feels right to you and disregard the rest.

In the Light…


“Music is a release from the tyranny of conscious thought”
— Kevin Burke
Insanity is inherited, you get it from your kids…

Herb of the Day: Marigold

Herb of the Day: Marigold (Caledula officinalis)
Also known as Bride of the Sun, Drunkard, Marybud, Goldes, Summer Bride. A Druid sacred herb.

…Parts Used: Flower and leaf

Magickal Uses: To strengthen and comfort the heart, pick marigolds at noon, when the sun is the hottest. To strengthen eyesight, gaze at marigolds. Garlands strung on door posts will prevent evil from entering the home. Scattered under the bed or placed in the mattress, they will protect you when you sleep and encourage prophetic dreams. Carry in your pocket when in court (legal) for a fair and just ruling. A legend is that when a girl touches the petals of the marigolds with bare feet, she will be able to understand the language of the birds. Add marigold to your bath to win the respect and admiration of your peers.

The history of the marigold’s use with aiding sight and providing visions to reclaim property indicate that the petals may be used alone or mixed with a dry incense to consecrate tools of divination. Indeed, Marigold petals may be gathered and dried and strew around the Circle to provide the magick of consecration and sight with a protective flavor.

There are few flowers better for rituals of death and dying than Marigolds. The dried petals may be added to incense, petals may be strewn in the path of the casket or urn and the Marigold may be planted at the gravesite. When giving honor to the beloved who has passed over, using Marigold will add a special, loving magick.

Medicinal properties: stomach cramps and diarrhea, fever, vomiting, salves, sores
