Spellwork Sundays

April 7th, 2019 - MOON MAGICK
 

For the first Spellwork Sunday, I wanted to focus on rituals involving Diana’s huntress aspect. It is very important to note that the various lunar cycles play a critical role in working with Diana, thus understanding the phases of the moon and how they play with Diana can greatly alter the outcome of any ritual, spell and overall connection. Diana was not just a lunar goddess, but was worshiped as the moon itself! When we talk about honoring or invoking the hunter aspect of Diana, we can use this trait when trying to aim at a target in our lives and strike it with accuracy, i.e. a new job, prospective lover, personal goal, etc. Below are some ritual suggestions you might find useful when working with this deity:

 

Time / Planetary Hours:

  • This spell is best suited for the period of waxing to full moon to invoke her skills of the hunt.
  • Create the intention of what you are wanting to manifest, under the waxing cycle.
  • Write on a piece of cloth your intentions and address it to Diana, asking for her assistance in your mission. 

    Altar Decor Setup & Suggestions for Diana:

        Simple Steps and Procedures:

        • Light white candles for & sing for her! Diana loves a good song!!! It can be an invocation of hers or you can create your own!
        • Tie the letter you wrote for Diana on a tree in a forest. If you don’t have access to a forest, trees outside your home, or in a park are perfectly suitable.
        • Be sure, to give her plenty thanks to show your appreciation and leave her fresh offerings throughout this cycle and spell.


        You can reference our Goddess Of the Month blog to obtain more info, and ideas on how to help personalize your ritual to pertain to your specific connection with this deity. Most importantly, have fun with it !! Whomever you are working with will most certainly appreciate your own flair! Enjoy and many blessings!!!

        Full Moon in Aries: Ring of Fire, October 13, 2019
        Full Moon in Aries: Ring of Fire, October 13, 2019

        Caution ahead with this Full Moon: anything and everything that has been swept under the rug in recent weeks is very likely to come to light. As you can see by the list above, there is an insane amount of aspects during this lunation. As with most all Full Moons, this is a time of release and renewal. Those of us who are more aware of the aspects will handle these tense issues with care and not allow themselves to fall victim to Plutos power games. Those of you with cardinal placements (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) need to pay extra close attention to this Full Moon, as it's likely you'll blow your top.

        Sacred Sundays: Scrying 101

        October 10, 2019 0 Comments

        Scrying is the ancient art of using an object like a mirror of vessel of water to see beyond natural sight and into the spirit world. While many consider scrying to be a strictly pagan practice, in truth it has been used historically in many cultures around the world as late as the 10th century, but possibly centuries prior. Scrying is essentially a type of divining, which in itself is a shamanic art that is seen cross culturally in virtually all ancient civilizations. The most common scrying device is a mirror, but before the technique of making mirrors was perfected, people used polished stone, fire, or simply a bowl or chalice of water.

        Hecate: Goddess of the Month, October 2019
        Hecate: Goddess of the Month, October 2019

        October 03, 2019 0 Comments

        Hecate (or Hekate, and pronounced “he-KAH-tay” or “he-KAH-tee”) has many titles, most notably the Torchbearer, Goddess of the Underworld, and the Keeper of the Keys of the Universe. A relationship with her is one that confronts and engages with the darkness that resides in us all, rather than ignore or reject it. Hecate is present in the Under, Middle, and Upper worlds, so her ability to transition between these realms indicates she is a powerful force for change. Hecate is an ancient goddess with a modern tradition. Modern Hekatean Witchcraft emphasizes her role in modernity, and puts less stress on the particularities of rituals and ceremonies so that practitioners may interpret their relationship in a modern, personal way, so that everyone’s practice is at their strongest. As far as sobriquets go, the Goddess of the Underworld is about as cool as they come. Along with her connection to the serpent, her power is connotative of what is popularly considered to be evil and nefarious in mainstream religion, but a relationship with Hecate underscores the necessity of dark with light, life with death...
