It's A Full Moon Tonight!
Because it is a full moon tonight I decided to do a simple spell
I lit a green candle and placed it in front of an open window! Since the color green is related to wealth and prosperity I wanted to welcome wealth and prosperity into my life and into my home.

August 16th - The Night Of A New Moon!
In my haste to find a full moon schedule for the rest of 2012, I just found out that tonight is the night of a new moon.
Of course new moon nights are also very good for spells that have to do with new beginnings and the like.
If I would have know at least a few days earlier I might have gotten some things together to do a new moon spell but I know that it is not a good idea to do a spell in haste so I think that I will just do a quiet chant for this night of the new moon.
Full Moon Schedule For The Rest Of 2012
I don't know why I thought of this now instead of at the beginning of the year but here is the full moon schedule for (the rest of ) 2012:
Of course if you didn't know it the full moon is a very good time for spells and that is why I want to have a list of the full moon dates.

Tonight I Light A Green Candle For Prosperity~
Tonight I light a green candle for prosperity!
No chants, or words - just a lit green candle sitting by an open window (thank goodness the weather is nice tonight!) to call and welcome prosperity into my home!
I'm quite sure that this is not an original kind of spell. It just "came" to me as I was in the room and there was a green candle "staring" at me so I decide that since the color green is associated with prosperity - I would light the candle tonight.
Do you think that seeing the candle and getting the "inspiration" to light it and put it near an open window was a calling of some kind? I kind of think that it was.
I should also add that I just noticed on my blog that tonight is a new moon - and I didn't even know this when I lit the candle!
Of course the new moon is a good to do spells that have to do with wanting to start something anew. It is also a good time for spells when you want to increase something (in my case prosperity) because this is the time when the new moon is waxing which means that it is increasing in shape (and power) and I didn't even know this when I lit the candle! I really definitely think that this was a sign - casting a spell at almost the perfect correspondence time of the moon!

I Gave MySelf A Tarot Reading Today!
I gave myself a tarot reading today because there are some problems that I am going through and I'm looking for solutions!
Though my situation is not totally hopeless I worry and I think that that makes the situation more worse for me! So I decided to do a tarot reading on myself to see what the tarot cards had to say for me.
Concerning my present situation I drew "The High Priestest:
Basically what this card says to me is that my situation is not hopeless and that I should first and foremost react with calmness and let my "positive emotionsguide me. This card says to let my intuition drive me. It is also a feminine card (which I am) that deals with a masculine world as far as my issues are concerned. It says that I should be discreet and well-organized as far as dealing with my situation is concerned.
My "future" card that was drawn was the "Ten Of Swords"
which in and of itself could be considered bad news but you go back to the "present" card which tells me what I have to do to avoid having such a thing happen in my future.
So in a nutshell that is my tarot reading and what I take from it is to not to over-react, remain calm, stay positive and go through the necessary things that I will have to do to solve the problem.
If you also read tarot cards I would love to hear your opinion about this and whether or not you get the same interpretation that I have gotten from these cards........

The date of the winter solstice has passed and we are now in early winter. We haven't had much snow in the area yet but all the other signs of winter are here! The cold air, the chilly air, the leaf-less trees and the barren-looking land.
But this is a time when I do the work of having supplies stored just in case I get trapped by a winter storm. I am so glad and grateful that I work from home and I have found other witches who are writers like me.
I do know that this is the time of year for a sort of like slumber period almost like a hibernation where we try to stay away from the harsh elements of winter as much as we can and in the meantime prepare for the spring.
I have started my inside garden starting with some lavendar and other herbs and they are finally starting to grow and I'm going to add more seedlings as well!
I enjoy this time of year - especially when I don't really have to go anywhere and I can work from home with my own hours and my own pace.
I'm also too, planning for the spring - mostly getting my outside garden cleaned up so that I will be able to plant and garden outside again this year as soon as possible!

What If Your Spell(s) Are Not Working For You - Part 2
I found another very good piece of advice about what to do if your spells are not working for you
When things don't work for you and they don't work a lot, it can be any number of things and your biggest challange a lot of the time is figuring out what is going wrong. This is one of the reasons that it's always good to write down everything that you have done and when you did, what state of mind you were in, what you used..etc, this way you can always go back and look and see if maybe you were in the wrong moon phase, for example or used the wrong herbs in something, and then you can easily go back and make changes and try again.
As for not believing enough, yes, that can be it too. If you have any doubt about what you're doing when you do it, that will effect the energy that you raise when you work magick. If you're not sure about something, then it's always best to just hold off until a better time. Remember, your thoughts and your feelings with what you're doing and your goal you have in mind all contribute to the energy that is being raised. Negative thoughts translate to negative energies and can cause things to not work out. Doubt is a strong thing.
Keep trying and keep practicing and you'll get it. Don't give up. =)"

Summer Solstice On June 21st
From what I know so far the summer solstice is the longest day of the year. It is the time to celebrate the summer months.
"Litha as they name it, which is celebrated around the longest day of the year, is a time for celebrating the power of light and the fruition of fertility. It can be described as Mother Nature being heavy with pregnancy. In other words, crops are growing towards readiness for harvesting.
Summer Solstice Rituals
The Summer Solstice marks the longest day of summer, the point at which the life-giving sun is at its strongest over the powers of darkness."
Interestingly enough I couldn't find a lot of detailed information about the summer solstice online and would love to hear comments from you on what you are going to do to celebrate.
I know that I want to do something to celebrate it - I just don't know what I'm going to do yet.
The Witch's Bottle
I have to admit that when I first saw this term I was very intrigued. Here is a further explanation of what a witch's bottle is:
THE WITCH’S BOTTLE
The Witch’s Bottle is a very ancient type of spell, which has countless
variations. The idea of performing a spell and sealing it in a jar is as old
as the manufacture of jars, and may be regarded as a portable version of
burying a spell in the Earth -the jar here representing the womb of the
Many examples of this sort of spell have been found by archeologists,
though modern versions tend to be rather different from ancient ones -partly
due to the difference in materials readily available for magical working. In
ages past anthropomorphic jars were especially popular for this sort of
working, the jar itself then taking on the character of a spirit helper to
aid the spell’s unfolding. Sometimes the whole jar would be made in the
likeness of a human being, or
animal, sometimes only the face would be shown. The so-called BELLARMINE
JARS, bearing the likeness of the Old God -often in tripple form- were
commonly used for this sort of undertaking and are strongly associated with
Today, we commonly use any sort of jar or bottle that appeals to us, or
is convenient to use. Decorative jars are often favored, but ordinary glass
jars and bottles -either plain or self-decorated- serve just as well.
For this particular Witch’s Bottle, you will need the following things:
A small jar -such as a baby food jar, or a medicine bottle.
A larger jar -such as a canning jar, or a decorative canister.
A bit of paper and ink -red ink would be preferable.
Some herbs -a combination of Parsley and Sage might be a good general choice.
A bit of essential oil -vanilla might be a good choice.
Some stones -aquarium gravel would be good, as it is small and easy to handle.
A quantity of water.
Choose a time when you will be able to work unhindered. If possible it
is best to make the bottle during the Waxing Moon.
This really looks like something that I would like to try myself!
