Traditionally known as the Hierophant, this card refers to a Master and the learning of practical lessons from the study of Natural Law. This energy of this card points to some agent or resource that can reveal the secrets of life, the cycles of the moon and tides, the links between human beings and the heavens.
Because monasteries were the only places a person could learn to read and write in the middle ages, a Hierophant was one to whom a student would petition for entry. He was the one to set the curriculum for the neophyte’s course of study.
Often pictured with the right hand raised in blessing, the Hierophant is linked with the ancient lineage of Melchezidek, initiator of the Hebrew priestly tradition, the one who passes on the teachings. All shamans of any tradition draw upon this archetype.
The Witches Magick For Monday, November 12th
SPELL TO HONOR YOUR HOUSEHOLD SPIRITS
When presenting your house spirits with offerings of incense,
candles or what not you can say this little chant:
“Wraith of the house, Take heart and live,
To every chamber This light I give,
To every corner This breath I send
Approve and favor my willing hand.”
More Great Day Comments
Good Monday Morning, dear, dear friends! I hope you are having a fantastic day. I was sitting here thinking, wouldn’t it be great if we had the ability to add our voice to these posts! There are ways I want to say things that just don’t could across in type. The “Good” Monday Morning, I would love to be able to say it like Robin Williams did in “Good Morning Vietnam.” I don’t know if you have ever watched that movie or not. But I loved the way he said “good morning” to rouse the troops. It would be great to hear each of you making your comments instead of reading them. Heck, it would be great if we could all talk on this blog! I wonder if WordPress can do anything about that, lol!
I thought I would drop you a quick note to let you know nothing was wrong yesterday. We just took a well deserved day off. Since my illness, everyone has been in overdrive. Working their rumps off and doing such a great job. Annie ran the blog like a pro, the guys kept the animals superiorly. They just worked the little beehinds off and deserved the day off. I rested, they rested and we all are refreshed and ready to go. I know we should have told you but it was a spur of the moment deal. That is the way I generally operate, never plan nothing, just do it, now!
Ok, that’s out of the way, one more thing………
Remember this time around, women’s rights and our Religious freedom could be in jeopardy! Please, go VOTE!
More Monday Comments
Good Morning, my dear, dear, friends! I believe the above quote says it all, “Thank you for your love, patience and support.”
I will keep this short. We (WordPress and I) have been getting the problem fixed on the blog. I am hoping it is fixed and everything will work the way it is suppose to. If not, we might be forced to change templates. I hope this is not the case, because I haven’t gotten use to this one yet, lol!
Anyway, have a super fantastic Tuesday, sweeties!
*I’ll leave you with a blessing that will make you go, huh?*
Here’s to you and yours
And to mine and ours.
And if mine and ours
Ever come across to you and yours,
I hope you and yours will do
As much for mine and ours
As mine and ours have done
For you and yours!
Just wanted to let you know WordPress is having a hissy this morning. I am having difficulty get my info to post. And as far as a pic on the front page, forget it. I have tried it four times and it takes minutes and minutes and nothing. So there won’t be a front pic today. But there will be info, one way or the other, lol!
Just wanted to let you know,
Luv & Hugs,
Who knows what is going on? I don’t 😦 . But I did want to let you know that WordPress is currently experiencing technical issues on some of its blogs. They are working hard to resolve this matter. So please, dear friends, have patience and surely this problem will be fixed shortly.
Thank you so much,
Calendar of the Sun
Day of Pax
Altar: The same as yesterday’s Concordia ritual, except with a cup of clear water instead of milk.
Offerings: Work for peace, in the home or outside of it.
Daily Meal: Fasting today, in honor of those who are caught in war.
Peace is not an easy thing to maintain.
It is not strong; it falls away
With an upraised hand or an angry word.
It is an act of constant balance.
It is true that there is peace in solitude,
If the cacophony of the mind will allow it,
But it is no true peace if the mere voice of another
Can so easily destroy it, like a child’s paper castle.
Peace must be achieved within the group of voices
Or it may as well be a mere pastime.
Peace must be more than a sanctuary;
It must be the work of every hand.
And yet it cannot be kept by force,
But it can only be achieved by understanding.
True peace does not come after victory,
For victory requires one to win and one to lose,
And a true peace can only be found between equals.
Therefore, we honor you, Pax, delicate bird
That we must protect and sustain with our strength.
(The clear water is poured out as a libation. All sit in silence and meditate on peace, and then go. There can be discussions today, but all who disagree must go into the discussions ready and willing to make peace, and see beyond their differences.)
Good afternoon my dear readers! I apologize for running so late but it couldn’t be avoided. I stayed up late last night working on the blog. I was wanting to put some detailed info on the blog about Leos at the bottom of the page. I know when you look down there it looks horrible. Have faith, I am still working on it. I finally figured out what I want to do now.
I really wasn’t going to write anything personal today but I got to reading some of the comments in the back. Then I was prompted to respond to a few (like two). Well I hate to tell you I have been whining again about what I have no idea. I don’t believe I have ever said this on this blog but…….blogging is my form of therapy. I get to blow off steam if I feel like it or I can be happy as a pig in slop. If any of my readers are having a bad day or something is on their mind, they can whine too. It is our blog, if we want to whine, we will whine. Everybody is welcome to whine. They weren’t specific about what I was whining about but if it was because of all the deaths I had experienced, I do not apologize for that. That was very tragic and also very horrible. I loved those animals to pieces and to see what I saw, broke my heart. So if that is what I was whining about, oh well, I don’t call being human and expressing my feelings whining. I want to emphasis to all my readers, if you want to whine, please feel free to do so. This is a place where you can discuss anything, blow off steam or just make yourself at home.
Now for the next thing, this will be short and sweet. There are too many errors in my spelling. Blame it on the Spellchecker. I use it religiously. There is nothing posted that is not spell checked first. So I don’t know what is going on there. I remember people griping about incorrect spelling. So I made a mental note when I first started this, always use the spellchecker.
Well I think that covers everything. I hope you have a great weekend. Don’t let the heat get you.
Luv & Hugs,
Well I’m in luck all the kids are asleep right now. So I can get some posting done. I thought I would run through the basic dailys real quick. Then put on the Chakra and Aura info I promised you last night. Then I plan on a few surprises. I hope you have a great weekend. And I am off to get my rump in gear and get busy.
Have a great one,
Good afternoon dear readers! I hope you are having a good Friday. I know I am. I love it when I have time to go out and ride my four-wheeler down into the creek bank. It give me time to think and ponder things that have been said or wrote to me during the day. I pride myself on being a thick-skinned witch. But there are still things that get under my skin. Yesterday afternoon, I was sitting in the creek bed feeding the bigger wildcats and thinking about a couple of messages I had got involving this blog.
One involved me whining all the time on the blog. Before I thought it through I had made my mind up not to leave anymore personal messages or say anything about my life. Then in the middle of the creek bed and about four hundred pounds of wildcats, it hit me. This is my damn blog. I am not a very open person to start with. But for my readers to get to know me and feel comfortable with me, I agree to occasionally write insights into my life. Now if my life is whiny, I am so sorry. But it is just my whiny life I guess, huh? What it all boils down to is this, the WOTC is my blog. I provide information for those wishing to learn or interested in Witchcraft. I do this because my Goddess told me this is what She wants me to do. I also try to let people see the true beauty about the Craft. Dispel old myths and stereotypes associated with Witches and Witchcraft. Now after I get through doing the Goddess’s work, if I want to whine, bitch, gripe or any of the above, I am going to do so. But I have remained a nice, sweet, loveable (hee,hee, in my own opinion, lol!) witch and I plan on staying that way.
For those of you who are new to blogs (and the author who wrote this was), the comments come in the back and I see them before I release them to the public for them to read. Of course, I am not going to release the nasty ones to the public, but I can guarantee the author(s) of those comments a couple of things. You will have my undivided attention (which you don’t want) and I am going to personally email you also. I am going to continue to do as I have always done. If you don’t like the blog, go on to the next one. But leave me in peace.
Second, this turned out to be bogus after I checked into it. I had several people (come to find out it all came from the same computer) write messages stating the style of my blog was unreadable, unorganized and just a mess (I guess that is why someone made me an offer to buy it, huh?). They told me, they had been taking stuff from my blog to use on theirs’ and their readers were complaining because they couldn’t read the stuff. I mean really, no one can make this stuff up, lmao! Everyone knows I have no problem with anyone using info from this blog. But once you take it from here, it’s your baby! The more I thought about this one, I almost busted a gut laughing! But come to find out what these people wanted was to sell me a $75 web blog kit for WordPress. They don’t know it but they are knocking on a poor witch’s door, lol! But I have come to love WordPress and how they keep up with posts in the back and I am very serious on this. In the back, I get your message then I also get your ISP number, cool! So all my dear friends have nothing to worry about. They keep a record of the ISP in case of a hacker, spammer, or butthead. And I was able to track those buttheads that wanted to sell me the blog kit.
Well guess I have whined enough for today. Enjoy the rest of your Friday and have a great weekend!
