Quarter Days and Pagan Fire Festivals

In some modern Pagan traditions, including some forms of NeoWicca, the eight sabbats or holidays are divided into two groups: the fire festivals, or cross quarter days, and the quarter festivals. Some belief systems celebrate only one group — either the quarter or cross quarter days — and others mark all eight each year. Which ones you observe will depend on your own magical tradition, as well as which of these sabbats is most meaningful to you.

Did You Know?

  • The term “quarter days” is derived from a system in the British Isles in which four specific days each year were marked as a time to collect rents, hire new servants, and resolve legal matters.
  • Some traditions of Wicca and NeoPaganism celebrate only the quarter days, while others observe only the cross-quarter festivals.
  • In some belief systems, all eight days are celebrated annually, forming the system we call the Wheel of the Year.

The Magic of the Pentacle – What is a Pentacle?

There is a lot of confusion about the simple pentacle – what it is, what it means, and how it is used in Wicca.

What is a Pentagram vs a Pentacle?

Often used interchangeably, there actually is a difference between the two terms: Pentagram and Pentacle.

A pentagram is a 5 pointed star and literally means “five lines” from the Greek word pentagrammos. It is a geometric shape and by itself, can really just be a star though can take on spiritual meaning depending on your path and the context in which it is used.

the pentacle is a major symbol of wicca and witchcraftThe pentacle is a pentagram surrounded by a circle. While thought by some to be a New Age or Neo-Pagan symbol, the pentacle is actually a very ancient design. It is the pentacle which actually takes on the most meaning in Wicca, Witchcraft and other Pagan spiritual practices and has various meanings depending on the tradition and way it is used.

For the sake of clarity, the Pentacle will be the focus of the rest of this article.

What does the Pentacle Mean?

This is an area for sometimes heated debate as the pentacle has been misunderstood and misrepresented for some time. Part of the confusion comes from the fact there is no one correct meaning of the pentacle. Like most ancient symbols, it has represented various concepts thru the years and been adapted and adopted by multiple spiritual traditions. Also like most things in Wicca, there is no right or wrong answer – you are free to decide what it means to you or the particular branch of Wicca/Paganism you follow.

Aura Cleansing – How to Cleanse Your Aura in Less Than 10-Minutes

Instant Aura Cleansing – Do This NOW!

Instant Aura Cleansing - A Powerful Technique to Cleanse and Uplift Your Aura Now!Are you carrying negativity and distortion in your aura? If you don’t regularly cleanse your aura… The answer to this question is likely yes… Even if you don’t realize it! The good news is that aura cleansing can be easy.

So today, I’m going to share with you a simple and yet, powerful practice to cleanse your aura and raise the vibration of your energetic being.

Without regularly cleansing your aura, you may likely be noticing some symptoms of needing a good cleanse. Feeling sluggish? Tired? A bit off… Or maybe you’re just not really feeling like yourself?

These are all signs you’ve taken on some harsh energy and that its time to cleanse your aura!

Aura Cleansing is a key skill to learn on the Spiritual Awakening path… Let’s look at exactly how to do it now.

Watch Now:

But first… What’s An Aura?

First a quick refresher… Your aura is, essentially the multilayered energy body that surrounds you in every moment.

Depending on your personal energetic structure that’s been created through the spiritual practices you do and through the level of your consciousness, how your aura is structured may differ a bit.

But one thing is certain. Everyone has an aura and as you go throughout your day to day life, your aura naturally takes on and absorbs energies from your surroundings.

Cleansing Detrimental Energies

Aura Cleansing Made Easy with this powerful and yet simple techniqueSo this is where aura cleansing comes in. It’s a method and process you can use to cleanse out any detrimental energies you may have taken on. Cleansing out the dense energy, thought patterns and lower vibrations of other people and places you may have taken on.

Cleansing your aura empowers you to shine with more of your authentic light, and authentic truth.

Raising Your Vibration!

Also, when your aura is cleansed so that it clearly and brightly shines around you, it has a way of raising your vibration. A clear bright aura empowers you to be able to reflect the highest divine qualities of your soul in the physical.

Your clear aura also acts as a protective mechanism. Because your aura is able to take in and store detrimental energies when it’s clear, it serves to protect you in this way.

How to Know if Your Aura Needs Cleansing?

But when the aura becomes very clouded or torn, (it can get ripped and all sorts of things) it becomes less effective in protection and can actually weigh you down.

It’s not really that your aura is weighing you down. It’s more that whatever energy the aura absorbs begins to weigh you down.

Either way, the simple remedy is of course, to cleanse your aura.

So that’s what we’re going to do now.

You Can do This On Your Own

I want you to know that you can do this process all by yourself. However, if you’re new to calling in energy, visualizing and flowing energy through your being, I do recommend that you invoke the assistance of your team of Guides, Angels and Ascended Masters of the highest Christ light.

However, as you step into more of your mastery and true sovereign divine nature, it’s not required to ask for any external help and you could do this all on your own, so both ways are fine.

But for now, to begin, let’s call in assistance.

What is Astral Projection?

Lately I have had a lot of people asking me about astral projection and wanting to know what it is all about and how to do it.

I have not yet astral projected in this lifetime, so I am writing this article not from experience but from what I have read over the years.

A few years ago I really wanted to learn how to astral project, so I studied and practiced every night but with little success. Eventually I gave up and figured it would happen when I was ready.

Here is what I know about astral projection-

What is Astral Projection?

To put it simply, astral projection is when your soul leaves your body and gets to travel around this dimension and into other dimensions. When you are travelling, your soul can go anywhere and meet anyone, including higher vibrational beings and lower vibrational beings.

When your soul leaves your body, it is attached to a cord. This cord is your lifeline back into your body. When you die, it is this cord that becomes detached that allows your soul to forever be free of your physical body.

Is Astral Projection Dangerous?

If your soul is out of your body and only attached by a cord, you are probably wondering if it is dangerous. The straight up answer to this question is yes.

While it is very unlikely your cord will be cut or detached from your body, when you are astral travelling you can encounter all types of beings. These include lower vibrational beings who may try to suck your energy or confuse you when you are heading back to your body.

All this means is that if you are going to astral project, you need to ensure that you are well protected by your angels and guides.

How Do You Astral Project?

6 Benefits Of Incense For The Mind, Body And Soul

incense-1961430_1920

If there was one thing that bound all the different, competing religions of the world together, it would be burning incense. Whether it is an altar boy burning frankincense during mass or a priest lighting incense sticks during a puja, the smell of incense is something that we can all immediately identify with. Even outside the realm of prayer, lighting incense has a multitude of benefits that can bring calmness to our souls. If it’s good enough for the gods, it’s good enough for us.


1. Reduces Anxiety And Tension

Certain smells have long been believed to have a very real effect on our body. Perhaps the reason behind the calmness of Buddhist monks is that they inhale incense all day. If you’re ever feeling the pressures of life getting to you, try burning some sandalwood or jasmine incense sticks and feel yourself reach nirvana.


2. It Can Help You Sleep Better

Next time your partner wants to buy you a bouquet of roses, hint that he should buy you a box of rose incense sticks instead. Fragrances like rose and lavender soothe your senses and help you fall asleep much faster. Just be sure to burn the sticks in a safe place or you might just sleep through a raging fire.


3. It Can Make You Better To Sleep With

Fragrances can be a powerful aphrodisiac by heightening your senses and making you more aware. If you find you can’t concentrate on your partner’s new moves because of other worries, burn some cinnamon or vanilla fragrance. These two scents are believed to be extremely effective at heightening arousal. Or making you hungry.
