Invocation to the Goddess

Invocation to the Goddess

 

Thou who whispers gentle yet strong
Thou for whom my soul doth long,
By most men you are seldom seen
Yet you ever reign as Virgin, Mother, Queen.
Through the veil you pass with pride
As I beckon thee now to be at my side.

Thou who knows, thou who conceals
Thou who gives birth, thou who feels,
For you are the Goddess and Mother of all
Pray thee now come as I call,
Now through the mist, I hear your voice
And invoke thee most gracious Goddess by choice.

Thou who suffers as all men die
Doth with her victim in love lie,
For you are the Goddess and Crone of despair
To our ending we all must share,
I feel thy passion and feel thy presence
I desire to be one with thy vital essence.

I pray thee dancer of eternal bliss
Bestow upon me thy wondrous kiss,
Let now thy light, love and power
Descend, become one with me this hour.
For you are the Creatress of Heaven and Earth
To my soul and spirit you have given birth.

Today’s Feng Shui Tip for Nov. 13 – ‘Knowledge’

This one’s easy. If you find that you have a bit of a hard time getting your youngster to read, then here comes Feng Shui to the reading rescue. This philosophy says that placing books or symbols of books (or any reading material) in the ‘Knowledge’ area of the child’s bedroom will stimulate an interest in becoming an avid page turner. And that’s all she wrote.

Today’s Tarot Card for November 13th is The Moon

The Moon

What has traditionally been known as the Moon card refers to a deep state of sensitivity and imaginative impressionability, developed within a womb of deep relaxation. Here we dream and go into trance, have visions and receive insights, wash in and out with the psychic tides, and experience deep mystical and/or terrifying realities beyond our ordinary senses. The full moon and/or eclipse cycle charted by the Magi (as in some of the earliest Moon card images) exemplify this as a mechanism that Nature uses to expand consciousness.

The variants of the courtly lovers (representing skillful use of the sex force) or the man sleeping it off under the tree (use of drugs to alter consciousness) are also traditional avenues for tapping this primal force. Human interest in higher states propels us to the frontiers of consciousness, where we cannot always control what happens. The Moon card represents the ultimate test of a soul’s integrity, where the membrane between self and the Unknown is removed, and the drop of individuality reenters the Ocean of Being. What transpires next is between a soul and its Maker.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for November 13

Being too assertive in the early hours is bound to create fatigue and stress since the dark-of-the-moon vibrations are reaching a crescendo. This extreme, waning lunar energy is good for resting, sleeping and meditating, but not terrific for taking great leaps forward.  It would be advisable to gear up for tomorrow’s Chiron station and shift in Pisces — from reverse to direct. Helping you build bridges of trust and faith with dear ones, friends and neighbors is a subtle and yet still supportive, 30-degree link from Chiron to Uranus (9:24AM PST).  The Scorpio New Moon (2:09PM PST) is followed four minutes later (2:13PM PST) by a Total Solar Eclipse at 22 degrees of Scorpio. Nearly simultaneously, Venus makes a potent, 135-degree liaison with Chiron (2:12PM PST). This implies that millions of human souls are hurting, but also looking to their fellow earthlings for guidance, nurturing and support. Use your words to heal — not harm. Find novel ways to assist the truly needy and disenfranchised.  Accentuate crystal clear thinking to offset fuzzy analysis of reality as Mercury squares Neptune (4:04PM PST). With Mercury in reverse and Neptune barely in the plus column of direct motion, it is easy to swoon into a state of confusion and internal chaos that can lead you astray from key goals and plans.  Adding to the strange dynamics going on right now is Mercury heading back into Scorpio (11:43PM PST) until December 10.

Element: Water
Altar: Set with a blue cloth, a large earthenware bowl of spring water in which has been placed several stones, an earthenware chalice, a dipper, and possibly a small fountain.
Offerings: Coins, to be tossed into the fountain or bowl afterwards. These should then be added to a charity fund.
Daily Meal: Nothing to drink but spring water all day. River fish. Watercress. Lotus root.

Invocation to Fons:

Hail, Spirit of the Fountain,
Spirit of wells and springs,
Gift of the Earth!
So much of our world is water,
So much of our bodies are water,
So much of the air we breathe
Is laden with water,
And yet so little of it
Will quench our thirst.
Let us never forget the generosity
Of the Earth beneath us
Who gives forth blood
In a form that we can drink of.
Hail, Spirit of the Fountain!
You who are the pure water
Blossoming forth from the Earth,
Let us remember how purity
Can come forth from that
Which is made of cold stone
And that which rotted into the mould.
With every taste of water,
We will remember your gift.

Chant:

Born of water, cleansing, powerful, flowing, healing, we are….

(Let one who is chosen to do the work of this ritual ladle out the spring water into the chalice, and pass it about to all present, and then pour the rest back into the bowl. After the meditation is over, the water should be returned to the Earth as a libation, and the stones set aside until the next year. One stone should be added each year thenceforth.)

The Witches Magick for November 13: GOOD RIDDANCE SPELL

The Witches Magick for November 13th

GOOD RIDDANCE SPELL

Here is another good spell for getting rid of an unwanted suitor.

 

Take a small square of paper and write on it the name of the annoying would-be lover. Use black ink for this. Many Gypsies also say that it is best to use one of the old “dip” pens and ink, rather than a modern ballpoint, but you could experiment. Let the ink dry; don’t blot it.

Then light a white candle and burn the piece of paper in its flame while thinking of the person running away from you. Catch the ashes in something (burning the paper over an ashtray is a good idea) and carry them out to a hillside (you can do this by putting them in a small plastic bag, similar). There you must place the ashes on the upturned palm of your right hand and hold it up, saying:

Winds of the North, East, South and West,
Carry these affections to where they’ll be best.
Let her/his heart be open and free,
And let her/his mind be away from me.

Then blow on the ashes so that they scatter to the winds.
