Litha~Summer Solstice

“Summer set lip to earth’s bosom bare, and left the flushed print in a poppy there.” Francis Thompson

Many have varying views on summer and it’s significance to them. Take a moment to think about what summer means to you. Perhaps it’s warmth, tank tops and flip-flops, fireworks, road trips, BBQs, and bonfires. There’s excitement, energy, a joy for life, wanting to go-go-go! This type of energy present is very masculine, very active, and very bursting with fruition! There’s still a potentiality in the air though we are beginning to witness intentions set at the new year blossom and grow into manifestation. Amazing, huh?

Carnival

4th of July Celebration @ Fairview Park | Centralia | Illinois | United States

Well, the very first day of summer (the summer solstice) marks the celebration of all of this and more. Also known as Litha, this sabbat is overflowing with light, passion, creativity, and oh so much more. It’s when the Sun God is at His height of power and this is evident by this being the longest day of the year. He is basking and shining radiantly upon all His children. The Goddess is pregnant with (1) the harvest we’ll reap in the fall and (2) the Sun God who’ll be reborn at Yule. While it’s most certainly a festival of celebration and enjoyment, it is also tinged with a underlying sadness as we understand that after this the God will be in decline as we enter the dark half of the year. Night begins growing once more as we head towards Mabon (the autumn equinox) where day and night are equal. After that, the nights are longer than the days.

No reason not to celebrate what we have presently though which is definitely a beautiful lesson in being present, gratitude, and making the best of any situation.

“The great gift of the energy of the Summer Solstice is that it’s designed to move you from one phase to the next on your terms.” Deborah King

Litha occurs anywhere from the 20th to the 23rd of June (I just use a farmer’s almanac to 3dcb427f44466b32c9a293a04021e247find the Summer Solstice) though traditionally it happened when the sun was in 1 degree of Cancer. Wait, what? Yeah, I was confused as well. A solar festival—like the BIGGEST solar festival—is during a water sign?! However, I soon realized that was the beauty of it! It’s when the Sun God is at his pinnacle point in the year and alongside Him, equal, is His consort, His wife, the Goddess. Neither one is pushed aside for the other. They both stand together in harmony and brilliance.

“Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.” Jenny Han, The Summer I Turned Pretty

This is the classic time for magick! One example would be how the morning dew of this day was supposed to be powerful for glamour so young ladies would venture out to bathe in this dew for a youthful appearance. Herbs collected at Midday (when the Sun is at His height of the day) today are incredibly potent. It is also on this day the fairies are 2196a0ced2774b8a0929007a3679ce3dout as they too revel in delight. Invoke their aid and do not forget to thank them—not so much with words but perhaps a bowl of milk or butter! You do not want to offend the Good Folk. Any spells for protection are great for today.

On this day the Oak and Holly Kings dual again with the Holly King winning. This also marks the transition of the Sun God into the Grain God who will be sacrificed during the harvest. The Goddess is mostly seen as Gaia who nourishes and sustains us daily. However, all solar deities are appropriate  as well as Father Gods, Mother Goddesses, and Pregnant Deities.

Local flowers—especially sunflowers, bright colors, and all things that symbolize summer are welcomed on the altar as well as décor around the home. Think of colors you naturally turn to during this time of year and more than likely most of them can be found in nature during this time which means go for them when decorating. Yellow, Orange, Red, Gold, ad Green are traditional with blue being great for Cancer. However, brown and/or tan is also permissible. I like to use many reds and yellows alongside greens for this particular sabbat.

Quick Correspondence List:

  • Symbols: Fire, The Sun, Blades, Oak Trees, Bonfires, Sun Wheels, and Fairies.
  • Animals: Horses, Cattles, and Summer Birds
  • Crystals/Stones: Emerald, Tiger’s Eye, Lapis Lazuli, and Ruby
  • Herbs: Frankincense, Lemon, Sandalwood, Copal, Saffron, Cinnamon, Laurel, and Orange

This is a sabbat of duality. Not only are we celebrating and honoring the Sun God in all His glory but also preparing for the harvest we know is coming. We honor the Pregnant Goddess and the beginning of the waning year. We delight in the light while acknowledging the beginning of the dark half of the year.

Card of the Day-19 May 2017

Card of the Day
Eagle (Communion)
We had this card the last time I did a COTD post which tells me that this is too important a lesson to simple ignore. When we think of communion, we think naturally of speakingIMG_20170519_105544_556 with and listening to Spirit/God/Goddess but it encompasses ALL. Through communion we realize that we are connected, that everything and everyone are interconnected and therefore, independent yet dependent. Maybe you have fallen short in your prayers or meditations-it happens. I’ve fallen quite short these past few weeks myself with being sick, having a broken tooth…but regardless, we can always choose to do it today. However, also remember this card means communing with nature. Weather permitting, get out there and enjoy it. The Gods manifest themselves within nature, my friend. You may find a better connection to Them out there.

Home-My Message from Hathor

Good Afternoon!

I have floundered in my desire to articulate the profound and overwhelmingly beautiful experience from a few weekends back that left me with an expansive heart and tears of joy streaming down my face. I was overcome with a deep sense of gratitude that almost was too incredible for words. In the very least, the only way in which I could ever hope to describe such an experience was a lesson from the Great Goddess Hathor Herself. Just know that even while writing this post, I have tears beginning to bubble in my eyes as I’m still so very thankful for such an eye-opening, aha! Moment. 😊

In my desperate attempt to place this lesson within context, allow me to explain my mindset before the experience. I was raised in a small town surrounded by mountains, so that regardless which direction you drive, they are there. This makes it absolutely beautiful in the fall when they are painted different colors. While I understood the beauty of my surroundings–and indeed back before I began becoming my authentic self, I was aware–I always wanted to move away. Ever since I was 16 all I could ever think about was moving up to New England. It called to me. Beckoned to my very spirit. I’m now about to turn 25 and that desire hasn’t lessened in the least bit. The only exception is now I’ve almost entirely forgotten the grandeur and beauty of my surroundings as I’ve become so focused on how much I differ from many of the residents. 15195883_10202357720262582_6775003807926241282_o

More than likely you already know where this all is headed. Anyways, a couple of Fridays ago I was headed to the cemetery that is almost a family cemetery. So many of my relatives are buried in this small little gated cemetery, located behind a small Methodist church, on top of a mountain. It’s one of the most serene and aesthetic view imaginable. I’ll have to ensure to snap a picture during my next visit. My grandmother, great-grandparents, aunts, and an uncle are buried there which I already knew. However, thanks to Ancestry.com and Findagrave.com, I recently became aware that my great-great grandparents are buried there as well. Before I began researching my family tree I didn’t even know their names and now I discovered they are buried in the same location. Talk about excited! I was determined to find their graves.

I’ve always been interested in my ancestry but no one had ever thought to ask questions, so you must understand how I could be so elated over such a rather trivial discovery. They were born in 1875 and 1879 which is incredible to me. Realizing it was Friday, Hathor’s sacred day, I allowed myself to begin the day be reveling in all that was pleasurable and beautiful so I decided to honor Her by doing my make-up. It may seem frivolous but it is a way in which I connect with Her. I digress and merely wanted to illustrate the point that I was already within this mind frame which I assume could only help any similar messages be heard.

My little sister and I headed to the cemetery which is about an hour or so away from where we now live. Having moved to the city last year, I revel in every moment spent back in the country as I have come to realize the immense blessing it is. The entire drive up the mountain was full of nothing short of lush greenery, the earth delighting in life and pleasure (it was before Beltane), and just a much slower pace. I’ve always been grateful for being raised in the country as it instilled within me a certain set of standards, values, and traditions that molded me into the woman I am today.

I may have forgotten that you don’t have to religiously or politically agree about everything–or anything–to enjoy and live a country life. It isn’t necessarily the tenets of faith you believe, the politicians you elect, but instead is based on the quality of life and enjoyment you receive from the small moments. It’s sitting on the porch during the warm summer nights, watching the lightning bugs dance throughout the yard, while friends are gathered nearby around a bonfire. It’s about really cherishing family, appreciating hospitality, and simply embracing life to the fullest. That was my lesson. Neighbors willing to help one another out, families gathering together for large BBQs, or simply relaxing outside while you make sun tea–that’s country. It’s the way in which we’re taught how to treat people and that manners count. I was focusing so much on the extreme differences to even understand that there is still so much of me that is a country girl. And that’s just as it should be.

20170428_134647Hathor granted me this shift in perception, this glorious and amazing understanding, as I was driving back from the cemetery. As I drove back down the mountain with all these green and awe-inspiring (at least to me) landscapes, with people waving as I passed by or simply nodding, with my childhood rushing back, I was reminded that true beauty is always all around us. Sometimes we only focus on the negatives and life is always going to have a down side. When we do this, we miss out on the incredible experience we’re already having. I could imagine myself remaining in this state, in this small town, completely different, eccentric, and unique, with no quarrels or snubbed nose of mine, and I was completely overwhelmed with the majesty of such a realization that all I could do was cry. Cry sheer tears of joy and appreciation. Never have I had such a deep sense of gratitude, beauty, love, joy, or enthusiasm. It was only due to Her that I had this shift of perception and I’ll be forever grateful.

This doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t mind eventually moving up north. It simply means that I won’t sit here bitching and wasting every precious moment longing for a place to call home. I already have one and we can have many places we call home. But for me, this is it. This is my home. I’m a country girl, from a small town who doesn’t share much in common with my fellow men and women–at least not on the outside. Dig deep enough and there’s more similarities than possibly believed. IMG_20170430_232455_921

Thank you, Hathor, Great Goddess of Love, Beauty, and all Earth’s Pleasures for such a epiphany and I give you Honor through this post. You brought me home and that was certainly no easy feat. Dua Hathor! Dua Netjer!

Blessed Be, My Dear Friends,

From the Earth Magic deck by Steven D. Farmer

Card of the Day
Eagle (Communion)

This is quite funny because I was just thinking earlier this morning about a post I’d read on Facebook about disconnect and the necessity of union with Spirit/God/Goddess/All That Is. This communion also extends into nature as everything has a spirit. We’re all interconnected so the tree beside my sidewalk is just as much a part of me as I am of it. This makes communication and communion possible.
Take time today to speak to your higher power. Pray,  Meditate, Chant–whichever helps you. Our lives become so busy that we tend to only come to Them when we’re in need but have you ever talked to Them? That’s the necessity of the day. If already do this then go out and commune with nature. That is your meaning. Nature is the manifestation of the Gods.
Be one with Them. Talk to Them. Listen. Maybe there is a message needing relaying?

My Beltane Aha! Moment–Beltane 2015

So this past weekend has been full of me trying to really rediscover myself as well as understand some issues that keep cropping up in my life. Mix that in with family drama, the mess that life can be, being sick, and some major changes of self–well I was in a right mess. I knew it had something to do with my perception and felt that I already knew the answer. I later logged onto my Facebook account and was sort of spring cleaning it–unliking no longer relevant pages, groups, and the like before realizing I had some notes on my personal page. One was a schedule from my senior year in high school back in 2009/2010–WOAH! Then I happened upon a note from Beltane 2015 that I’d completely forgotten about and within it was the lesson I was in need of hearing once more. I’ve felt compelled to share it with ya’ll in case you too may be in the same mindset. 🙂

My Beltane Aha! Moment–Beltane ’15

Hope everyone had a wonderful Beltane and if you’re celebrating the entire weekend, then I wish your celebration is full of beauty and love. My Beltane definitely didn’t go as I had planned. Yesterday, 1 May, was also my mother’s birthday and I had a job interview so talk about busy! The night before I’d grown quite restless and perhaps only managed four hours of sleep which only made me very grumpy in the morning. It didn’t help that the grumpy bug had bitten everyone else in the house either. I’d decided because I wasn’t in the mindset for ritual to skip that and instead celebrate in small ways throughout the day which will carry on into today as well. Long story short, it seemed as if everything I had planned yesterday just wasn’t working. Even just watching the sunrise didn’t happen as it was rainy and very dreary–which definitely didn’t help my mood! In fact, my mood didn’t even improve until later that afternoon after my interview. It wasn’t the prospects of perhaps acquiring this job after searching for a while that had made me smile. No, it was something so small that normally is taken for granted. 

On my drive back home, I had turned the radio from the usual country station I always have it on to the hip-hop/rap station that I hadn’t really listened to since leaving college. I just wanted to listen to something much more upbeat which would definitely be keeping with the energy of Beltane–even though I didn’t give it a thought at the time! Actually I didn’t even think about it until I realized I was still listening to said station at this very moment! Funny how it works like that at times! However, I digress. As I continued my drive home, I paid attention to the passing fields and yards that, though damp, were lush and green! BAM! In my head popped the four and five of Chalices! The Four of Chalices came to my mind first but as I stopped and thought about it the Five really stood out so I’m going to start with that card and what it taught me yesterday.

11148701_10200417626881460_4000784416496035450_n

To me, the five of chalices typically represents not being fully present in the moment, being detached and unaware, and even oblivious. It’s about not being attentive to a situation (or life in this case) and that around you. As can be seen in the card, the man is only paying attention to the spilled chalices, therefore completely oblivious to the two good ones. He’s instead only choosing to put his focus and energy towards that which 1) is on the more negative side, 2) that which he cannot control, 3) the depressing smaller picture instead of the bigger picture that everything’s alright, and 4) not letting go that which no longer serves him. This really hit me because instead of paying attention to the beauty around me, the joy of it all, I was only choosing to focus on a small part of the big picture. I was choosing to instead focus on the negative side of things–the rain, the attitudes, the lack of sleep, etc. I was completely missing the BIG picture! For one, we really need the rain as without rain nothing can grow. Two, everyone has bad days but it’s how you decide to handle them that counts. Instead of grumbling and feeding that grumpy, moody energy I needed to take a few deep breaths and just say a few things I was grateful for as that is an instant mood lifter in my opinion. It really makes you thankful for every day you’ve been blessed with. Going back to the rain, looking at the green earth I realized just how much it contrasted with the dark, gray sky which in turn made everything seem greener and beautiful. On sunny days, though I am aware of the green surrounding me, I definitely don’t appreciate it as much as I should. This allowed me to focus instead on that appreciation and wonder that comes from nature. This card really reminded me of choosing where I focus my attention and energy.

11196239_10200417626681455_7288314058399244082_n

The other card was the Four of Chalices. This card was the first that floated–not floated, more like bolted!–into my mind. This card is sort of similar to me as the one above in that it’s about not paying attention. It’s about missing out on an opportunity because you are solely focused on the situation or even the future. Paying attention will allow you to be aware of the opportunities and blessings surrounding you. Instead of worrying about what’s to come (as the Chalices are in front of and not next to the person), look around, be fully present, and open yourself to the Universe who will provide what you need. This card stuck out to me as I’d been very much worried about the future with my bills, going back to school, and the long term accomplishments I’d be able to achieve with this job if I get it. Of course it’s always a good idea to make some sort of goals and a list of what you want to accomplish but sometimes we get so wrapped up in that worry and anxiety that we don’t pay attention to the now. This is the only moment guaranteed. How are you spending it? I was constantly in the mindset of the future that I wasn’t paying any attention to the here and now. This reminded me to slow down, take a deep breath, and just enjoy the moment now. I’d even become stressed and frustrated with how I wanted to celebrate Beltane throughout the day instead of simply sitting with the energy of the day, with the God and Goddess, and just enjoying life! I was so angry that my day wasn’t going according to plan that I wasn’t allowing the day to unfold as it should. I was to focused ahead that I was almost rushing through those small moments of celebration that I did do because to me they weren’t what I thought of as celebration.

This was my little aha moments for the day and remembering that I’ve got to stop and smell the roses which even goes with the energy of Taurus. Everything is connected and works together, we just have to stop and allow the present to penetrate our spirit and by doing that, we are in constant celebration.

 

I hope this lesson I learned may be helpful to some of you as I feel we can have the horrible tendency to allow the little things to ruin our perception of the day when there is so much to be joyous of–so much to celebrate! We also need to remember that we need to be fully present in each moment–allowing ourselves to pause and really enjoy life. ❤

Blessed Beltane and Brightest of Blessings,

The Autumn Witch

 

Emotions, Manifestation, and the Witch’s Pyramid

Witch's Pyramid

To Know, To Will, To Dare, To Be Silent—these are the four cornerstones of the Witch’s Pyramid which is an integral part of both magick and manifestation. Much like a recipe each element must be present otherwise success is very low or nonexistent. Perhaps someone will get lucky and manifest a desire a couple of times without following all four of these sides but often it won’t happen continuously. Each part corresponds to an element upon which our magick must equally be balanced and built upon as everything within the universe is comprised of the five elements. I say five because I do count Spirit as one as it permeates everything in life. It’s the life within all.

We call it a pyramid though it really is represented as a star, the pentagram, which makes more sense given that it’s our religious symbol. That is why pictured above is a star and not a pyramid. It’s not a mistake. Promise. Let’s return to the elements and the correspondences for just a moment as this isn’t the point of the post but instead a side note (though a very important one at that!). To Know belongs with Air which makes sense as air relates to communication, knowledge, and thinking. We must have knowledge and learn on this practice. While intuition is great and ought to be used, we must also read to learn more about something before attempting to perform it. Of course, knowledge isn’t only gleaned from the printed page but regardless of how one learns, the point is one must.

Next, we turn to To Will. Most books and people would say this corresponds to Fire which while I understand the reasoning, it doesn’t sit well with me. Instead I think of it as Water. Why? Simply put, our emotions (ruled by water) are what cause us to desire something and it is through our desire that we will it into being. Before we even take any sort of action, we must possess an emotional response, an investment, in what it is we’re manifesting otherwise there’s no fire to it. There’s no need. I think we first think it then must involve our emotions. We have to feel it within before we can even begin to take actions towards obtaining it. This was actually the goal of the post—to discuss emotion and manifestation so I’ll return to it in just a moment.

Instead let’s continue to To Dare. This is where water is traditionally labelled but to me daring is all about courage and the fire within. You must truly find your inner strength and force to step forward towards your goal. Maybe I just picture a group of ancients around Yule alongside their bonfires and torches asking if you dare traverse the longest night of the year so that you may arise again. Regardless, daring to me is just something so fiery and primal that I can only decide fire for it.

Lastly, To Be Silent is earth. This is probably one of the hardest aspects for the new witch but there’s a reason to it. Some people say another as well. To begin with, the new witch may be bursting with giddiness or excitement and want to tell some of their friends and/or family. However, they may not be as excited and in fact could even work to negate your work—without even realizing it! Some people state that this also stems from the Burning Times when speaking about your craft could even become a death sentence and land a witch with the witch hunters. Earth is stable and secure which when you have enough belief and a firm enough foundation then you’re secure within your own work. This could lead one to not even feel the need to blab as sometimes insecurity or worry is why some feel the need to talk to another to figure out where they went wrong.

Now that we’ve covered the Witch’s Pyramid, which encompasses all magick, we can turn to the emotional investment that I was speaking about earlier. Have you ever tried to manifest anything only to have it completely flop? Going back, was your heart in it? Were you emotionally invested? We have to feel something for what we’re trying to attract—it creates a specific vibration—which helps send that out into the universe. We have to feel excitement, love, joy, bliss, or something like that. Without emotions is there really a desire? Would you care about the outcome? Your emotions are what charge the spell. That’s why there are some witches who say that if a need is great (which means you’re emotionally invested) then it doesn’t matter whether the moon’s in the right phase. If you’re strapped for cash and have a bill come in then I can guarantee you’ll have an emotional need to charge your spell. While all sides are important, I think this is one that some people could overlook—especially people who just want to do spells because that’s something witches do. They then get mad when the spells flop without realizing that their hearts and need were absent.

The next time your magick seemingly flops, ask yourself was your heart in it? Did you really need it? Did you really want it?

Remember: don’t hold too tight to it which being too emotionally invested can do. There has to be a balance and if you seek to control everything because you’re so invested then it won’t pan out. You’re not allowing the universe room to bring you something potentially much better. 🙂

Invocation to Ma’at for Harmony and Balance

Happy Friday! I hope ya’ll have had a wonderful week abundant with joy, love, and success. If you’re like me, you may have begun feeling off yesterday which certain political events surely only deepened. My heart was so heavy yesterday that I found myself being overwhelmed with a sort of melancholy that I’ve never before felt. It was definitely weird!

This stuck with me and today when I drew the Card of the Day, I drew the Keeper of the Scales which was about a lack of balance within. Immediately I began to think of Ma’at who isn’t a Goddess I’ve actually ever worked with before so I knew She was attempting to contact me. Listen to the signs–that’s what I’ve been preaching! So I quickly researched Her in excitement and before long I was writing an invocation to Her for Harmony and Balance. I’ve never really written an invocation before so bear with me. This most definitely may be tweaked and enhanced for your own personal use. However, if you do decide to use it as is, please do credit me. 🙂

Quick Facts about Ma’at:

  • Egyptian Goddess of Truth, Justice, Harmony, and Order
  • Daughter of Ra through Heka (Magick) and Wife of Thoth
  • Her most notable symbol is the Ostrich Feather which she wears in her hair–it’s the feather which our hearts our weighed against in the Hall of Judgement.
  • She is usually depicted with wings.
  • Only one temple was built for Her by Hatshepsut.
E-86

Ma’at

My Correspondences for Her: (I read some of these and agreed. Some were intuitive)

  • Colors: Purple and Blue (some mention black as well, which I can sort of agree with)
  • Symbols: Feather (especially Ostrich) and ankh
  • Element: Air
  • Tarot Card: Justice
  • Crystals: Amethyst, Emerald, and Jade
  • Scent: Aloe (Rose was also added but I’m unsure–that seems more Hathor too me)

**If you decide to invoke Her for Justice Spells, it’s always important to remember that you better be clean within that situation too as She doesn’t discriminate against who she deals Her justice against.**

Personally for this Invocation I would light a purple or blue candle and hold a piece of Amethyst. You can use any your guided to or exclude them.

Invocation:

I call to You, Lady Ma’at,

Daugther of Ra, Wife of Thoth.

She whose ostrich plume holds immense power

As it deems whether a heart is pure or not.

Balance and Harmony are Your conviction.

It is through You that we may reach such ideals,

As you permeate everything—all that is just and good.

 

I call upon you on this day

For help in balancing my inner self—my inner planes

So that I may be whole and healed.

I’ve allowed the outside world to much freedom

In regard to my emotions and peace.

I failed to shield myself. I acknowledge that.

I ask that You assist me in realigning myself with my Truth,

So that I may return to myself.

So that I may be complete.

 

You, who embody all that is just and balanced,

Come to me now so that I may too delight in you.

Allow me to share and revel in your order and harmony.

Allow me to be restored—

For the scales within to become equal,

So that I may continue forth in my fight against injustice,

So that I may aid You in this world, and with Your mission,

Of Truth, Justice, and Order.

So Shall It Be.

What’s your experience with Ma’at? Is She a Goddess you’ve worked with before? I found Her quite fascinating though there doesn’t seem to be loads of information about Her.
