Goddess Knowledge – Pele

Pele is the fiery Hawaiian volcano goddess. The daughter of the earth goddess Haimea, Pele came to Hawaii on a boat. Killed in a fight with her sister, the ocean, sho took refuge in the glowing cauldron of Mount Kilauea (this is the volcano that had the major eruption in July 2018 – a link will be below) where she receives the souls of the dead and regenerates them with fire. In a tempestuous relationship with Kamapua`a the ferocious pig god,  she is portrayed as a jealous goddess, her rages manifesting as volcanic eruptions. Revered by Hawaiians even today, she carries the force of the volcano, with its molten lava flow, which even in destrud=ction creates new land. Pele stands for the molten, fierce aspect of life that is unable to do anything halfway. She reminds us that even in the midst of fiery eruption there s creation and new life.

Weekly Horoscopes Sunday, January 19 to Saturday, January 25, 2020

All Signs

Each year, the Sun travels through all 12 signs, which gives everyone different opportunities to explore. For the next four weeks, the Sun will journey through Aquarius, which is an Air sign (despite the confusion of its symbol the Water Carrier). Aquarius energy is intellectually vibrant, original, inventive and cutting-edge! Aquarians are fabulous net-workers! They love aviation and excel in technology, computers and science. In the next four weeks, these special qualities will flourish more in all of us. Take mathematics for example, there are three kinds of people: those who can count and those who can’t.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

In the next four weeks, you will be more social and more involved with friends. You will deepen your existing friendships and make new friends. Likewise, many of you will be more involved with clubs, groups and professional organizations. It’s important to know that this increased involvement with others will benefit you. (Hopefully, it will benefit others as well i.e. a mutual situation.) The stimulation of others in your life will encourage you to set future goals or change your existing goals for the future. It’s true: friendship is the bread of life – (yeah, yeah, money is the honey.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

For the four next weeks, the Sun is at the top of your chart. (This is the only time all year this occurs.) This is an auspicious time for you! It symbolizes that a spotlight is shining down on you, and this light flatters you and makes you look great in the eyes of bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. (Even though you aren’t doing anything special.) Obviously, this is a blessing from the universe. Take advantage of the situation while it lasts. The next four weeks are the perfect time to advance your agenda or make your pitch or convince others to go along with your ideas. Don’t waste this opportunity. Use it!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A lovely influence in the next four weeks will make your life more exciting and stimulating! For starters, you will have chances to enjoy a change of scenery. Wherever you go will feel adventurous and different and very likely, you will learn something new and interesting. In this same window of time, because you have a chance to learn more, you might take a course or study something new and useful. Likewise, opportunities in publishing, the media, the law and medicine will also arise. Use this influence to expand your experience of the world. Do something different! Talk to new people. Learn new things. Shake up your routine!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In the next four weeks, the placement of the Sun will increase your focus on sex, money, wealth and shared assets. In fact, this specific placement, will heighten your emotions and make you feel more intensely and more passionately about everything in life. (Don’t leave home without a rose between your teeth.) This means you will enjoy expressing your physical passions, but you will also just as passionately defend your best interests in the ownership of something. Or you might defend your best interests in what you think is your fair share of an inheritance or a settlement. This same influence will also help you heal (physically and emotionally). An interesting time, indeed!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For the next four weeks, the Sun will be opposite your sign, which is the only time all year this occurs. Because the Sun represents energy in your chart, and it is now as far away from your sign as it gets all year, this means your energy will be diminished. You will need more sleep. (Respect your need for more rest.) In addition, this polarized position of the Sun will increase your focus on your closest friendships and partnerships; and you will see the role that they play in your life and vice versa. You will see how these relationships benefit you – or not. Likewise, you will see how you can benefit them – or not. Obviously, in the best relationship, you are as good for your partner as he or she is for you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

In the next four weeks, the Sun will be “useful” to you because it will highlight everything related to work, employment, your health and even your relationship with your pets. It will spur you to be as efficient, effective and productive as possible, particularly in your work – but also in whatever you do every day. You will make To-Do lists and think of ways to catch up so that you feel you’re on top of your game. You might also seek out ways to benefit others because this will be rewarding and satisfying to you. You will want to improve your health in any way you can through exercise and diet. So many possibilities! Good luck with your makeover!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In the next four weeks, life will be easier and more stimulating because the Sun will be in your fellow Air sign, and this is supportive to you. You will feel upbeat and freer to be yourself! You will choose to do exactly what you want to do. Obviously, this window of time is perfect for taking a vacation. It’s also an excellent time to explore the arts and enjoy playful activities with kids. Grab every opportunity to party and have fun! Many of you will enjoy sports more than usual and be involved with the theatre, the entertainment world or the hospitality industry. The main thing is to relax and enjoy fun times with others. Lucky you!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In the next four weeks, the Sun will travel along the bottom of your chart. This happens only once a year and when it occurs, it draws your attention to your most personal life including your home and family. Many of you will cocoon at home more than usual because it will feel good to relax among familiar surroundings. You might be more involved with a parent. Likewise, you will be more involved with family members and important family discussions. You might entertain at home, especially with family and children. You will certainly be aware of the role that family plays in your life and the role that you want to play in your family now and in the future.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Get ready! The pace of your days will accelerate in the next four weeks because the Sun will stimulate your world and everything to do with your daily activity. Expect to take short trips during this window of time. You will also be busy talking to many people, keeping up with a busy agenda of appointments and meetings, all the while doing more reading, writing and studying as well! However, you will love this busy pace because you will be learning something new and your energy will be pumped by seeing new places, meeting new faces and discovering new ideas! (You eat this stuff up with a spoon.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You have an interesting four weeks ahead because the Sun will be sitting in your House of Money and Possessions. This will stimulate everything you do with financial matters and cash flow. Naturally, many of you will think about moneymaking ideas. You might consider a major purchase. You will also think about what you own and how to best take care of your belongings. But at a deeper level, you will survey your assets and wealth and think about what is useful to you? What you own should help you, not hinder you. Do you own your stuff or does it own you? In turn, this can lead to deeper questions and speculation about life and what you own. Ultimately, you might ask yourself, what really is important in life? What is most valuable? (Heady stuff.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The Sun will be in your sign for the next four weeks – something that occurs only once a year. Because the Sun is your source of energy, this is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year! This is the perfect window of time to replenish and restore yourself. The Sun will also attract people to you – all kinds of people – and likewise, it will attract favourable situations to you. This is definitely a fortunate time! Obviously, because of these “apparently random” opportunities that present themselves to you (people and circumstances), you will have a chance to make headway and to move forward in the direction that you want. Make the most of this!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Because your birthday is a month away, this means that in the next four weeks, the Sun is “hiding”, waiting in the wings before it sails out centre stage in full Pisces regalia! Therefore, the next four weeks are a time of rest, introspection and contemplation for you. Think about what you want for your new year ahead? Take time to make goals because this will benefit you. When you define some goals, this helps you to make decisions in the future. It keeps you on track with where you want to go. Goals give you a sense of purpose and confidence. You feel reassured because you have a plan. They give you a sense of resolve and reduce feelings of being nebulous about what you’re doing. “We’re off to see the Wizard!

To Find Your Local Starting Time

I received this letter from my right-hand witch, Priestess Hypatia,On January 5, 2020. I felt as so many have asked for the rains to come to Australia to help put out the wildfires that this email should be shared with everyone.

“Hello dearest Lady Beltane,

THE RAINS ARRIVED!

I can not thank you enough for what you and the Coven members did.
I am so grateful it fills my heart with so much love.
We are fine here in Melbourne, its the rural areas like where my beautiful sister is. The family and many like them were taken by the Navy ships to safety untill the infirno subsided.
This was the place I always visit on a regular basis called Eden.
This is where my beautiful sister had her apothecary farm and livelihood.
The miracle is they are all fine, there home has some damage but still somewhat standing. The farm is all gone but at least they have their lives.
The locals are still on high alert and will be all summer.
Would you believe the fires stopped literaly at their door step.
I can’t visit her as the coast is still burning and very dangerous.
Australia just has to go on and find normality.
The poor wildlife that is suffering now needs to be tackled.
There will be a gathering to thank all the different Gods and Goddesses that answered our calls to bring rain to help put out Australia’s wildfires that have been burning since October 2019. It is summer there right now so there is a chance of the fires spreading again if they cannot get them all completely put out. So the rain will be needed for a few days to help the firefighters please continue to ask for it to be sent there. I am very thankful to everyone in their own way asked for the rain to come in before the entire continent was nothing but as.

Thanking the Gods and Goddesses for the Rain Falling

Save the rest of your beverage and snack than go outside to make your offering to all the deities approximately half of your beverage and snack, you should drink and eat the rest outside.

Now we will do a spell/prayer asking for the rains to continue as long as needed

For More Rain

( The intent is to keep in your third eye {middle of your forehead] is to see it rain over the wildfires of Australia but causing no flooding, wash out roads, or any other damage to much rain in one location could cause)

We call upon the ancient Aboriginal God of rain and water

To help douse the wildfires and keep them from spreading any further

We ask that rain only affects the wildfires and does not cause any damage to anything on it is own

We ask that all the people, animals, birds, and reptiles not yet affected by these wildfires escape whole and unharmed

Now get as clear a picture in your mind od the rain helping to put out the wildfires. We will all meditate for 3 minutes on this picture in our minds.

After the 3 minutes or however long you want to meditate on the rain coming to all of Australia say, “This is our will for Australia, So Mote It Be” or however you end your own spell work.

Set the container is a safe place where the water will not be spilled. Add more water as needed to keep the map submerged until all the wildfires are completely out.

I walk this circle the times in the direction of the setting Sun. The circle is open but never broken. Priestess Hypatia, all the residents, and visitors in Australia thank you for participating in casting this spell for them and all the other living things to be safe and the wildfires to stop growing.

SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder covers many seasons and things including depression, anxiety, and more PTSD to name a few. I myself have clinical depression, an anxiety disorder, and PTSD (from being raped 3 different times and my mother trying to suffocate me right before she tried to take her own life in 1971 after my father’s passing a year before). Many of us with different phobias and/or emotional problems are told, “Buck up and move on” or, “My favorite you can’t be disabled I can’t see anything wrong with you.” Just because we can walk unaided, see with out help, hear again without help, but it is what we try to cover over so we don’t have to hear unkind comments many of us just never leave our homes.

You can help a friend or even a stranger by being an ear to listen to them and not judging them for what they need to say. You could find out about a home bound person possibly through a local church or even online. You could arrange to bring lunch or dinner once a week staying to eat with them so they have some kind of human contact. Usually when you get paired with someone you receive their phone number not their address this so you can make a connection via talking and work up to having a meal with them find out what they miss by not being able to leave home, i.e. sweets, reading material, word search or crossword puzzle books, etc.

Do not judge a person you know because the seem really down or stressed to the max instead ask them, “Is there anything I can do to help you? I’m hear to listen anytime you need to talk.” If someone you know seems very depressed or stressed you may want to suggest they see their doctor to talk about how they are feeling.” Also offer to drive them if you can so they know someone cares enough to honestly want to help them not out of duty or you feel you have to, do because you want to help and you care about the person.

Feather Symbolism, Magic, and More! By Nicole Canfield

Finding a feather on the ground is a sign from Spirit.

Finding a Feather on the Ground

You’re walking down a familiar path when something on the ground catches your eye. You walk up and realize it’s a large feather. You were having an awful day, but somehow finding a feather on the ground has completely elevated your mood and state of mind. That is the innate magic of the feather. Feathers come from birds and so are magical by association. Birds have long been regarded as messengers of the gods, as they carried messages to and from the heavens. Finding a feather on the ground is a gift from Spirit—a spirit guide, angel, or deceased loved one. There is something special in every found feather. Let’s explore feather symbolism, feather magic, and more!

The Type of Bird

If you’re finding feathers on the ground and can’t identify the birds, don’t fret. You don’t have to know the type of bird it came from to tap into its magic. But if determined to identify the feather’s bird-owner, you can start by doing your research. Look at what kinds of birds live in your area. Then identify the size of the bird and the feather. You can narrow down your search to a few birds, if you try hard enough. Or you can ask Spirit to show you the bird in a dream or meditation.

When finding a feather on the ground, don't forget to look up the symbolism.

Feather Symbolism by Bird

Each bird has its own feather symbolism, its own special magic. Birds have a direct link with Spirit and will bring you divine messages.

To get started, here is a list of birds and feather symbolism:

  • Blue Jay Feathers – while many people say blue jays are a nuisance, I have found them to be very powerful guides. Their message is simple – protect family at all costs.
  • Blackbird (Crow, Raven) Feathers – there are many kinds of blackbirds but their general message can be broken down into: magic, mystery, intuition
  • Ibis Feathers – the ibis is found in the Southeastern U.S. and is directly connected to Thoth the Egyptian god of Wisdom and Writing. The ibis reminds us to tap into our creative side and gain wisdom from the universe.
  • Seagull Feathers – the seagull can be found almost anywhere along the coasts. It is a scavenging bird and is connected to the sea. A seagull feather symbolizes humor, silliness, and using resources wisely.
  • Cardinal Feathers – the cardinal has such beautiful and vibrant red feathers that symbolize vitality, life, power.
  • Parrot Feathers – parrots remind us to be aware of our surroundings and heal us through color therapy.
  • Dove and Pigeon Feathers – doves and pigeons are in the same family. Dove feathers symbolize peace, love, and family.
  • Mockingbird Feathers – mockingbirds remind us to sing our own songs, to be our own unique selves.
  • Owl Feathers – Owls have connections to ancient deities. Owl feathers symbolize magic, intuition, seeing in th dark, developing psychic awareness and more.
  • Hawk Feathers – Hawk feathers remind us to connect with Spirit, stay focused, and fly high.

Feather Symbolism by Color

If you don’t know the kind of bird, look at the color. The color of the feather has special meaning. Here’s a simple guide:

  • White Feathers: a sign from recently passed loved one or angel
  • Black Feathers: a call to spiritual action and self-exploration
  • Red Feathers: a sign of passion or love in the near future
  • Gray Feathers:  a time of peace is coming
  • Blue Feathers:  a sign of
