Today’s Tarot Card for November 15 is The World

The World

What has traditionally been known as the World card points to the presiding intelligence, called “Sophia,” or Wisdom, which upholds life on this and all worlds. A more precise title for this card might be “the Soul of the World,” also applicable as a symbol of personal empowerment and freedom. In most Tarot decks it is a female figure that has become our standard World image. She originates in Hebrew, Gnostic and Alchemical lore, and stands between heaven and earth as the Cosmic Mother of Souls, the Wife of God and our protector from the karmic forces we have set loose upon the Earth in our immaturity and ignorance.

Where the Empress energy secures and fertilizes our terrestrial lives, the goddess of The World invites us into cosmic citizenship — once we come to realize our soul’s potential for it. Just as the Chariot stands for success in achieving a separate Self, and Temperance represents achievement of mental and moral health, the World card announces the awakening of the soul’s Immortal Being, accomplished without the necessity of dying.

This card, like the Sun, is reputed to have no negative meaning no matter where or how it appears. If the Hermetic axiom is “Know Thyself”, this image represents what becomes known when the true nature of Self is followed to creative freedom and its ultimate realization.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for November 15th

If you think that Tuesday’s Total Solar Eclipse and Wednesday’s shift by Chiron are ancient history, think again. As indicated on prior dates in this calendar, major celestial alignments and events from the day before or two days before are still percolating in the psychic atmosphere — influencing mega-millions of human beings around the globe.  Fortunately, the lunar orb in Sagittarius carries a note of positive thinking, opportunity knocking, and essential optimism. This is certainly reinforced during the monthly Moon-Juno union (7:33AM PST). Energize primary partnerships in a respectful, balanced and harmonious manner. Be more fashion-conscious and check out the latest clothing designs and hair styles. Love vibrations increase in frequency when the Moon forms a supportive, 60-degree tie with Venus (2:30PM PST).  However, tensions start to rise shortly after this sky pattern occurs as Venus forms an off-kilter, 150-degree link with Pallas (3:54PM PST), Saturn makes a similar, 150-degree liaison with Uranus (4:28PM PST) while Mercury parallels Pluto (6:44PM PST). Ouch! These three challenging alignments — happening within three hours — can easily cast a pall over the rest of the day and send you to a corner of the school room with a dunce cap on your head.  Don’t go on an egocentric tear or push your agenda at all cost. The past (Saturn) and future (Uranus) are clashing, and problem-solving is more difficult than usual. Strive for greater objectivity, peace of mind and serenity to get through this 24-hour time-period relatively unscathed.

15 Ngetal/Maimakterion

Day of the Yew Tree

Color: Ivory or bone-white
Element: Earth
Altar: Upon a bone-white cloth set a vase of yew branches, a single ivory candle, a pot of soil, seeds of a sometimes-poisonous medicinal plant, a bowl of water, and a bell.
Offerings: Plant seeds. Care for a cemetery.
Daily Meal: Vegan

Invocation to the Green Man of the Yew Tree

Hail, Green Man of the Autumn!
As the leaves fall and turn to brown,
As their breaking bodies crack beneath our feet,
As the earth itself browns and fades
And every stalk and tree gives way
To withering, the evergreens alone
Hold up their heads, and watch over
A kingdom which begins in death.
This is your kingdom, sacred yew,
Whose wood made bows to shoot
Flying death into the hearts of enemies.
Wreath of sacrificial bulls, beloved of ghosts,
Barrel-maker’s joy, coffin of the vine,
Churchyard tree whose roots spread
One to each corpse’s mouth,
Whose scarlet berries bring still more death,
Spell of knowledge, King’s Wheel,
Boundary of autumn and winter,
Saturn’s tree, slow to grow and slow to die,
Eagle who shrieks and dives to kill,
Whose all-seeing eyes follow shadows,
We hail you, sacred yew tree,
Green Man of the Autumn,
On this the day of your deathwatch.

Chant: (To be sung to the slow beat of a drum)
Like leaves we fall Like leaves we fly Upon the winds

(Each comes forward and plants a seed in the pot of soil, saying, “Hail Green Man of the Earth!” Water is poured onto the pot, and then the rest is poured out as a libation. Ring bell and dismiss.)

15 Blutmonath

Nidhogg’s Blot

Color: Black
Element: Earth
Altar: On a black cloth set several bare tree branches in an earthenware vase, a horn of mead, and the figure of a dragon.
Offerings: Pieces of wood with the name of a missed duty scratched on them.
Daily Meal: Tree fruit such as apples or pears or cherries or peaches.

Invocation to Nidhogg

At the base of the great World Tree
Dwells a black dragon
Whose name is Nidhogg,
Whose sole task is gnawing
At the roots of Yggdrasil.
As quickly as it gnaws away,
New growth comes forth
In a never-ceasing spiral.
At the base of each soul
Dwells a black dragon
Whose name is Conscience,
Whose sole job is gnawing
On our blithe thoughtlessness.
As it gnaws and forces us
To do what should be done,
It clears away our disorder
And allows for new growth
In the tangle of our lives.
Teach us, gnawer at the roots,
How to listen and decide.

Chant:

Roots of the Tree,
Hidden, mysterious,
Reveal them to me,
Dragon of Earth.

(Each person shall snap a twig from the branches on the altar and take it with them, laying it under their pillow to remember Nidhogg and their own consciences. The mead is passed around and shared, and the remainder poured out as a libation to Nidhogg.)

The Witches Magick for Nov. 15th: Three Times Three Spell

THREE TIMES THREE SPELL

To have someone see his errors

This is a three times three spell to use on people who were corrupt in their ways. It has no negative consequence unless you think ill of the person while casting the spell.

 

Wind in the north, run through the trees
Three times three, let them see, let them see
Sands of the east, rich soils beneath
Three times three, set them free, set them free
Fires in the south, awaken from sleep
Three times three, let them see, let them see
Water of the west, flow to the seas
Three times three, set them free, set them free

 

It works best if you have something representing that person, like a strand of their hair or a fingernail.

The spell may not work instantaneously, you may have to repeat it for the person to see error in their ways.

A Terrific Thursday to All of Our Dear Friends & Family!

 

I will serve the Great Goddess,
        And give reverence to the Great God,

        Standing firmly, Balanced on the earth,
        Yet open to the winds of heaven,
        And enduring through time,
        May the old gods witness my words and my deeds.

So Mote It Be.
