Holy Mother!
Upon the ferment of restless seas
You were born;
motherless, fatherless,
primordial as the sea.
Your realm is of pleasure and
the moment —ephemeral;
Your anger quick as a
summer storm and as quickly spent.
In loveliness of spirit all may
share in Your delight—
the Mystery is the ever loving Self—
fathomless, transient…
Your flame burns bright in those
who love You—
Your rituals endure.
So Mote It Be!

We are ever changing as does the Moon – Feel the Moon – let her fill you up! Join us! Feel free to contact me: GrannyMoonsMail@yahoo.com   Website: http://Goddessschool.com

In many different traditions lighting a candle is a sacred action. It expresses more than words can express. It has to do with gratefulness. From time immemorial, people have lit candles in sacred places. You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle on this gratefulness. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. One single guideline is all you need: Slow down and do it with full attention.

GrannyMoon Says Today Is: Tiu’s Day – the day of Mars…also Ares, Tiwaz, Tiw (from whom it is named), Tuisco, and Tyr.
Tuesday is ruled by Mars, whose Magickal  influences are: Passion, courage, aggression, and protection. Tuesday comes under the influence of Mars, the planet associated with vitality, passion, ambition, and raw, unabashed power.
Tiw was a God of Athletics, Combat, and Law. Consider meals to improve physical well-being, encourage justice, or increase strength and strategy.
Mars energy makes the mind acute, and the body restless; therefore, on Tuesday we are likely to exert ourselves physically and take action to achieve goals. This day is dynamic and high-spirited, and the prevailing energies may include carelessness and destructiveness as well, so it is good to be cautious—-especially while traveling.
Tuesday is the proper day of the week to perform rituals involving courage, physical strength, revenge, surgery, and the breaking of negative spells.
Today’s Magickal Influences ~ Destination, War, Courage, Surgery, Physical Strength
Today’s Goddesses: Aset [Isis], Soorejnaree, Pingalla, Anna, Aine, Danu, Yngona, Bellona, Aida Wedo, Sun Woman
Perfumes: Hellebore, Carnation, Patchouli
Incense:   Lignum Aloes, Plantain
Color of The Day:  Red
Colors for Tomorrow: Yellow
Lucky Sign: Tuesday Is The Lucky Day For Aries and Scorpio

Pale moon doth rain,
Red moon doth blow,
White moon doth neither rain nor snow.

As when the moon, refulgent lamp of night,
O’er heaven’s clear azure spreads her sacred light,
When not a breath disturbs the deep serene,
And not a cloud o’ercasts the solemn scene;
– Homer, “Iliad”, Bk. viii. (Pope’s trans.)

O Moon! the oldest shades ’mong oldest trees
Feel palpitations when thou lookest in:
O Moon! old boughs lisp forth a holier din

The moon appearing larger at sunset, and not dim but
luminous, portends fair weather for several days.

Seasons of the Witch – Ancient Holidays
Remember The Ancient Ways and Keep Them Holy!
Goddess Month of Hestia begins 12/26 – 1/22
Goddess Month of Bridhe, begins 1/23 – 2/19
Celtic Tree Month of Beth Ends
Celtic Tree Month of Rowen Begins: January 21 – February 17
The Rowan Moon is associated with Brighid, the Celtic Goddess of Hearth and Home. Honored on February 1, at Imbolc, Brighid is a fire goddess who offers protection to mothers and families, as well as watching over the hearthfires. This is a good time of year to perform initiations (or, if you’re not part of a group, do a self-dedication). Known by the Celts as Luis (pronounced loush), the Rowan is associated with astral travel, personal power, and success.
 A charm carved into a bit of a Rowan twig will protect the wearer from harm. The Norsemen were known to have used Rowan branches as rune staves of protection. In some countries, Rowan is planted in graveyards to prevent the dead from lingering around too long.

The Year Is Divided Into Four Seasons:
The first season is of a frigid complexion, and this is “Winter”;
The second is of the complexion of Air, and this is “Spring”;
Then follows the third, which is “Summer”, and is of the complexion of Fire;
Lastly, there is the fourth, wherein fruits are matured, which is “Autumn”.
~The Turba Philosophorum, ca. 12 century

Live each Season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.
~Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862)
)0(
NOTE: Because of the large number of ancient calendars, many in simultaneous use, as well as different ways of computing holy days (marked by the annual inundation, the solar year, the lunar month, the rising of key stars, and other celestial and terrestrial events), you may find these holy days celebrated a few days earlier or later at your local temple.

GrannyMoon’s Reading for Today ~ Chariot 
Keywords: Control, will power, victory, assertion, determination
The Winner! Groundedness and the ability to accomplish a task on the physical plane. It traditionally symbolizes a victory of self-discipline. You may find that your mind has achieved greater control over the unconscious parts of yourself. This control is not prohibited or stiff, but does involve bringing unconscious contents to the surface.

Today’s Goddess: Oya 
Aquarius Begins (Various Locations)
Themes: Justice; Tradition; Zeal; Femininity
Symbols: Fire; Water; the Number Nine
About Oya: A Yoruban Mother Goddess and spirit of the river Niger, Oya flows with us through the last day of January, strengthening our passion for and appreciation of life. She is wild and irrepressible, like the fire she’s said to have created, yet Oya presides over matters of fairness and custom, using that fire as the light of truth. Artistic depictions of Oya show a nine-headed woman whose bosom speaks of fertile femininity.
To Do Today : Enjoy a glass of water when you get up to begin generating Oya’s zest for life in your body and soul. This is also very suited to the energies of the day. Aquarius represents the Water Bearer who continually pours inspiring, creative waters from celestial spheres into our lives.
Get out and do something daring today. Invoke Oya through your pleasure and pure excitement. Dare to dream; then try to make that dream come true somehow.
If there’s some area of your life that needs more equity, try making this Oya charm: Take any small candle and carve Oya’s name into it. Have a glass of water nearby. Light the candle to invoke the Goddess. Hold the water over the candle, saying,
“What injustice consumes, Oya’s waters quell.”
Drop a little water on the candle, then trim off the taper, carrying it with you to draw justice to you

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Grounding Spell
During this Capricorn Moon in the middle of winter, you can warm your bones and set strong foundations for your good intentions in the coming year. To prepare for this spell, find a special rock and cleanse and prepare it for magical work. Make a fire, or light a few candles on your altar. Get in touch with your body by stretching out on the floor. When you feel grounded, go to your altar, and place the rock in a spot facing north. Visualize yourself with roots going down into the earth, and say:
Sacred rock, ground me.
Help me set a course for the year ahead.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ AQUARIUS, Jan 20 – Feb 18 
ELEMENT: Air
RULER: Uranus
SYMBOL: The Water Bearer
ATTRACTED TO: Gemini, Libra
LUCKY NUMBERS: 17, 11, 30
TAROT CARD: Queen of Pentacles
You are a charitable and public minded person who is ambitious, energetic, determined, dedicated, but can be opinionated and strongly affected by outside events that are unexpected or out of their hands. You are usually very honest and forthright. Your word is your bond. Once given, you stand by your word and your decisions. You do not have a problem with other people’s right to their own beliefs and you think everyone is entitled to their own approach in life.
You are very considerate of others. You are very independent. You are an individualist. You find it hard to team up with others and tend to go your own way. You have an active imagination, sometimes letting it run away with you. You are usually 50 years ahead of your time. You have high Morals and values, and are compassionate and friendly. You are happiest in work like teaching, writing, painting, inventing.

The Goddess Companion
Free
in the glad greenwood,
leaping like a deer
who fears no hunter.
There I will dance
with no man watching,
there I will find wisdom
written in the forest shadows.
Is there any gift greater
than feeling such joy?
~Maenad song, Greek Dramatist Euripides
On this night in ancient Greece, the Lenaia was celebrated. It was the festival of the Maenads, women who followed a now-mysterious cult of the God of Ecstasy, Dionysus. Little is known about the celebrations of these women, who for more than 200 years practiced a religion apparently based upon union with the divine. Yet even, 2,000 years after their societies were disbanded, the Maenads still hold a powerful place in our imagination. What were they like, these seekers of ecstasy? How did they find the divinity within themselves? We may never know, but we can celebrate the instinct for transformation within ourselves, however it may manifest itself.

In many different traditions lighting a candle is a sacred action. It expresses more than words can express. It has to do with gratefulness. From time immemorial, people have lit candles in sacred places. You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle on this gratefulness. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. One single guideline is all you need: Slow down and do it with full attention.

Lunar Lore
The Egyptians worshipped the cat as a symbol of the moon,
not only because it is more active after sunset,
but from the dilation and contraction of its pupil,
symbolical of the waxing and waning of the night-goddess.

The month is divided into three periods,
the waxing, the mid-month, and the waning,

Kassada (Indonesia)
Midwife’s Day (aka Women’s Day; Greece)

Pennsylvania Farm Show
Greek: Midwife’s Day. Send a card to any midwifes or dulas you may know. Invoke Artemis, Goddess of midwives and a midwife Herself. Ask Her to midwife to things into your life.
Once a celebration honoring the Goddess Babbo, now honoring midwives and birth. Men stay inside while the village midwife is adorned with fertility symbols such as flowers, onion, garlic, dried figs, currants, and carob-beans and receives gifts from all the women of child-bearing age. A ceremony is performed when they pour out water for her and kiss the ‘schema’ (meaning shape), a large phallic symbol made from a leek or sausage. Afterwards women feast and drink, lead the midwife in a procession while dancing and telling lewd jokes, and sprinkle her with water from the fountain.
Norse: Dedicated to the Goddess Freya (Freyja), Goddess of Love and Fertility. In ancient times, this day was dedicated to the Norse Goddess Freya (or Freyja), who presided over both love and fertility.
Justica’s Day was celebrated by the early Romans

Remember the ancient ways and keep them sacred!

Live each Season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.
~Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862)

NOTE: Because of the large number of ancient calendars, many in simultaneous use, as well as different ways of computing holy days (marked by the annual inundation, the solar year, the lunar month, the rising of key stars, and other celestial and terrestrial events), you may find these holy days celebrated a few days earlier or later at your local temple.

Today’s Goddess: Eleithyia 
Midwife’s Day (Greek Macedonia)
Themes: Birth; Children; Creativity; Fertility
Symbols: A Torch; White Flowers
About Eleithyia: As the Aegean Goddess of Birth, Eleithyia acts as the midwife to your new year, filling it with creative power. Eleithyia’s name translates as “Fluid of Generation,” giving her strong fertile aspects, and she also has a hand in personal fate.
According to myth, Eleithyia was the midwife of the gods and even birthed Eos, the creative force behind all things. When Eleithyia’s hands were closed, birth was delayed. When Eleithyia opened her body, a child arrives effortlessly.
To Do Today: The ancients honored their midwives today as the Goddess’s assistants by giving them gifts. In modern times, this might equate to sending a thank-you note to your physician or pediatrician.
If you bring Eleithyia’s fertility to any area of your life this year, try this spell: Gather a handful of white flower petals. Work in an area that somehow represents your goal. If you want a fertile garden, for example, cast this spell in your garden; for fertile ideas, perform it in your study. Visualize your goal as you release all but one petal, turning clockwise to the winds saying:
The wish of my heart, Eleithyia see,
and bring back to me fertility.
Carry the last petal to help the magick manifest.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Connecting with the Goddess
The month of January is often a time of low energy for many. The hustle of the holidays is over, and another year, full of unknowns, had begun. Even with the slowly lengthening days, we can still feel the effects of limited sunshine on our bodies. When we honor the Goddess during this current Full Moon, we can reunite our energies with the divine source. For this reunion, you will need a while or silver candle, jasmine or another herb to represent your spiritual connection, an herb to represent you, charcoal, and a fire-proof container. Begin by standing in the Goddess salute. State these or similar words:
Lady of the Moon
Mother of night,
Our energies are one
within your light.
Light the candle, visualizing your energy blending with the goddess’s. Mix the two herbs in your hands, continuing the visualization. Sprinkle the herbs onto the lighted charcoal.
As the smoke rises, visualize your energies intertwining with hers. Meditate and listen for her messages of guidance. Thank her, and extinguish the candle.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ A Witch’s Bottle
Gather Rosemary, needles and pins and red wine. Fill a small jar with these
first three ingredients saying the following as you work:
“Pins, needles, rosemary and wine.
In this Witch’s Bottle of mine;
Guard against harm and enmity;
This is my will, So mote it be!”
Visualize these herbs doing just that. When the jar is full, pour in red
wine. Then cap or cork the jar and drip wax from a black or red candle
around the seal.
Bury the jar at the farthest corner of your property or place it in an
inconspicuous spot in the house.
The Witch’s bottle destroys negativity and evil; The pins and needles impale
evil, the wine drowns it and the rosemary sends it far from your property.

The Goddess Companion
Her beauty shines forth: Kokyanwhuti,
she who gives light and nourishes life,
the Mother of all that lives and shall live.
There she stands, dressed in soft wool,
white and blue, woven with the symbols
of womanhood, the butterfly and the blossom.
Turquoise and shell and coral: these are
her jewels. Fair and warm and tender:
these are her expressions. Gleaming white:
this is the color of her soft skin boots.
Look how she smiles at us as she dances
on the shifting sands of time. Look
how she smiles at us before she disappears.
~Hopi Creation Myth
The beginning of each year reminds us of all beginnings. It is a fertile and creative period when anything seems possible. Like the Goddess Kokyanwhuti, the Hopi Spider Woman, everything seems lovely, magnificent, abundant. Hope swells in our hearts. we expect nothing but beauty before us, behind us, above us.
Yet in the ancient myth of creation, as soon as the Goddess appears, she disappears again. So too in our lives, the brief enthusiasm of beginnings comes all too soon to an end. All too soon, harsh reality sets in. Great plans seem foolish and unattainable, our lives seem pinched and small, hope seems to disappear from our reach.
That same ancient myth tells us an important secret, however: that the goddess did not disappear, but submerged herself into the very reality that challenges us. Our great dreams are not dead, only dispersed among the daily efforts it takes to achieve them. Our great hopes are not dead, only hidden within our hearts.  Remembering the presence of the Goddess, even on dark and wintry days of the spirit, we can go forward to a greater future.

Mars energy makes the mind acute, and the body restless; therefore, on
Tuesday we are likely to exert ourselves physically and take action to
achieve goals. This day is dynamic and high-spirited, and the prevailing
energies may include carelessness and destructiveness as well, so it is good
to be cautious—especially while traveling.

Today is the quasquicentennial of the founding of the Sierra Club. Created in the US 125 years ago by John Muir, this organization is dear to many Pagans, as it celebrates a love of the earth and nature. Protection and cleaning are also built into group activities.

The weather today is likely to be temperate no matter where you live. Contact your local Sierra Club chapter, gather your family, friends, and/or coven, and volunteer for a local cleaning/ beautifying project. If that is not an option, you could take a walk in nature or putter in your own garden. Make it as complicated or as simple as you choose, keeping in mind our precious natural resources. Before and after, recite the following:

“Our Earth is a finite resource, Loaned, not owned. Guide us in the best care of it. Bless our efforts.”

A Magic Cup Spell
Spell Date: Saturday, May 27, 2017

This spell will help wishes come true.
You’ll need:

* A coffee or tea cup with a saucer
* Saltwater
* A drop of olive oil
* A pen and paper

Wash the cup out three times with the saltwater. Then bless the cup by rubbing the olive oil around the inside of the cup. Write your wish on the paper. Fold the paper, place it inside the cup, and cover the cup with the saucer. Leave the cup and saucer on your altar until the wish comes to you. Then burn the paper. You may use the cup and saucer again for other spellwork, but only use it for magic.

A Friend Spell
Spell Date: Friday, May 26, 2017

Nothing is better than having a good friend. Sometimes our best friend is just waiting for us to open up and let them in.

This spell works with symbols. Opening up can be symbolized by a flower bud. You also need to be comfortable with who you are. Comfort symbols can be a good chair or a pillow. And in a good friend relationship, there is talking and there is listening. Both of these require silence on the part of one person or the other.

Set up your space with these symbols: a quiet space, a comfortable chair or pillow, and a flower bud to open yourself. Work a list of values that you would look for in a friend and that a friend would find to value in you. Seek these things out when you meet people, and remember to share with them those things that you would like others to value in you.

Tarot Postcard Oracle
Spell Date: Thursday, May 25, 2017

For this spell, use an old tarot deck or procure one from a used bookstore. Divide the deck into trumps and pips. Artfully glue each of the twenty-two trumps onto a fitting postcard. Decorate each postcard with symbols, interpretations, and the mythic associations of the card. Be sure to include your own message on the back. Place each postcard inside of an individual envelope with two random pips, then mix up all the envelopes. Finally, hand-deliver your twenty-two oracle posts to random people you encounter throughout the weekend. Inquire with care regarding accuracy.

A Magickal Shield

For millennia, people have identified themselves and traced their lineages through heraldic shields, coats of arms, flags, and other symbolic creations.

Designing your own magickal shield strengthens your magickal identity and can be used for magickal workings as well. Start by making some notes: Who are you in terms of earth? Air? Fire? Water? What kinds of magick do you work with? What do you value? What symbols and numbers are significant to you? What colors?

Use a large piece of cardboard, fabric, or even plywood—with one quadrant each for earth, air, fire, and water and a central area for spirit. With paint, pens, wood burner, or your media of choice, design each section according to the notes you made. Keep revising and tweaking until your shield is finished. Bless it with salt, smudge, and pure water. Display it proudly in your sanctum, and consider using it as an altarpiece as well.

Ladybug Love
Spell Date: Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Who doesn’t delight in finding a ladybug in their garden? These mysterious little creatures evoke joy in everyone from the smallest child to the oldest adult. Ladybugs are aggressive eaters of pests, specifically aphids, which makes them a welcome addition to any garden. You can buy packets of ladybugs for your garden from any nursery or garden supply store. Just be sure to release them in the cool hours of the early morning.

Tuesdays are dedicated to the planet Mars, so they are good days for matters of passion, courage, aggression, and protection. Two of the colors associated with Tuesday are red and black, making this a great day for a ladybug blessing:

“Ladybug, creature of red and black, May your belly be full and know no lack. Protect my garden and keep it free From all pests, three times three!”

Release Worry
Spell Date: Monday, May 22, 2017

When we think of cleansing and clearing, it’s usually a physical object or a place—but how often do we try to clear ourselves of emotional baggage? Try this ritual as a kind of reset button for your emotions.

Make a list of things you’ve been worrying about—for example, finances, an employment situation, health concerns, relationships, etc. As you write down each worry, imagine you are setting it aside for a while. You don’t have to worry about it or think about it at all—at least not until you’re ready.

Fold the piece of paper and place a piece of black tourmaline on top of it. You can also use a clear quartz point. Leave this on your altar as long as you wish. Chant:

“Things that cause me worry,
rest beneath this stone,
Help to ease the burden
’til I can face it on my own.”

When you feel the spell is complete, destroy the paper and cleanse the stone.

Heartwings Love Notes 778: A Memorial Day Remembrance

Heartwings says, “We honor our departed when we carry on their good work.”

My father’s father died in World War One, when my dad was six years old. I can still see the picture of him that was always on top of our piano in a old fashioned frame. Tinted brown, it showed a tall man in an army officer’s uniform wearing riding boots—he was in the Calvary, standing opposite a small boy in a sailor suit saluting his father. It may have been the last picture ever taken of him. My grandmother never remarried but raised my father and his brother alone.

My father was a colorful character who dressed as he chose and did things the way he wanted to. Although he didn’t care too much what others thought, he was also in certain ways a traditional person. Every Sunday he attended the Episcopal Church where he had grown up. There my grandmother had endowed a stained glass window dedicated to her late husband. On the rare occasions I attended it with him as a child I would gaze entranced at the light shining through the knight in armor with the various emblems surrounding him.

There was a square in the center of town that was dedicated to my grandfather. He was a hero who been awarded a medal posthumously. Each Memorial Day the parade of marchers would stop there and a member from the American Legion would place a wreath of leaves on the hook beneath his name. My grandmother and later my father would add a big bunch of red carnations. I remember one year my father lifted me up so I could do it. Each year we went as a family for the ceremony.

Buried too far away for me to tend or decorate his grave, his body lies in a cemetery on the Cape where many of his ancestors lived and worked. His several times great grandfather even started a newspaper there that is still publishing. My father’s simple boulder with a brass plaque, his unique choice for his headstone stands out among the more traditional gravestones of his ancestors and other members of his family. He was an individualist to the end.

On this Memorial Day as always I honor my late father in my heart. When I donate to a charity I know he would have given to, when I pray in my own fashion for the good of others, and when I emulate his kind nature and unique sense of fashion, I am honoring his memory. I cannot place flowers on his grave nor can I tend it as I would if I lived nearby; I can honor his memory in my own way by how I live my life in the way he taught me to do.

May this Memorial Day bring you treasured memories to enjoy.

Blessings and best regards, Tasha Halpert

American Scene

Domestic Tranquility: Box of Candy

We finished dinner and Tasha joined me in the living room. She looked at the coffee table. “Where’s that box of candy that was here? I think I’d like a piece.”
“You mean the two pound box of rum soaked dark chocolate cherry nut truffles that the Throckmortons sent us?”
“Yes,” she nodded. “I thought it would be nice to have one.” Her eyes roved the room.
I giggled. “I ate them.”
She blinked. “All of them? All two pounds!” A glint of amazement fluttered in her eyes.
I smiled. “I was doing us a favor. Helping us to avoid temptation. How could we ever seriously think of losing any weight with them tempting us each time we walked past the box?”
Her face was a study in shock. “You just sat down and ate them all like a grilled cheese sandwich?”
I shook my head. “Oh no! I showed way more discipline than that, I stretched it out for at least a couple of days.”
“You devoured a two pound box of candy in a couple of days?” She sighed and shook her head.
“Well we’ve been exercising! Doing the walk away the pounds DVD and I figured finishing them up would be a proper way to kick off our serious effort toward staying thin. You told me we needed to lose a bit of weight so we’d look nice at the beach this summer.”
nd you think eating all that candy will help?”
“I smiled. “Absolutely.”
She tilted her head and raised her eyebrows. “Mind telling me how?”
“I can’t exactly put it into words but its Biblical. You know– feast before the great trudge across the dessert to the Promised Land.”
“What I find truly amazing is that all that sugar hasn’t made you ill.”
“Not in the least! There was pistachio marzipan in the bottom layer. Incredibly delicious! Actually I gave you one.”
“Yes you put it on my desk and said if I didn’t want it you’d finish it off.”
“You liked it then?”
“Of course I liked it! Who wouldn’t! It was scrumptious and I was hoping for more.” She sighed. “Do you have any idea how many thousands of calories you ingested?”
“But that’s exactly why I ate them. The only way I can drop any weight is feast or famine.”
She looked at me and shook her head. Have you weighed yourself lately? You’re far from being a victim of famine.”
I smiled again. “Oh I’m the first to admit you’re an incredibly good cook. I’m only talking about excessively delicious comfort food, like exquisitely rich imported candy.”
“Well that’s good to hear. At least your dietary consciousness seems somewhat on the upturn.”
“And think how long we’ve been avoiding artery clogging fast food restaurants!”
“And I suppose avoiding what any sane person knows isn’t good for them can make one feel proud!” Was there a tinge of sarcasm in her voice?
“My eating that candy was making a supreme sacrifice. You must understand that I ate it for both our waistlines.”
“Of course you did,” she smiled. “You know, I hardly eat any candy at all. Although occasionally I think it’s nice to enjoy a piece. And I see nothing wrong with us having a treat now and then,… in moderation.”
“You’re upset I devoured them aren’t you?”
She shook her head. “Me upset! I just want you to last.” She said emphatically. “But I suppose if that was your last hurrah till your birthday cake. Then perhaps it was worth while.”
“What do you mean my last hurrah?”
“That now you’ll avoid all temptation. Limit your between meal snacks to a cup of green tea. Exhibit incredible self discipline!”
“That’s the idea.” I smiled.
“Good!” She got up and walked into the kitchen. She opened a cupboard door and extracted a colorfully decorative box.
“Where’d that come from?”
“My cousin in Seattle. Her annual Spring gift. She sends them every year, remember?” Then she opened the box of Southern Praline Pecans and took one for herself. “I’d offer you one, but I know how dedicated you are now to losing weight and I wouldn’t want to burden you with unnecessary temptation.”
They were jumbo pecans thickly covered in a buttery brown sugar praline coating. I remembered them from last year. An old family in Georgia had guarded this secret recipe since before the Civil War. My mouth watered. “Those look absolutely delicious. Maybe just one or two?”
“But wouldn’t that be contradictory to what you said about kicking off a genuine effort at weight loss.”
“That was only a figure of speech. Besides, all my clothes still fit me.”
“It was you who brought it up.” She took another one, held it and admired it as thought it were a rare gem. Then she nibbled a little off the end and sighed softly. “I suppose if you want one.”
“We all have the right to be contradictory, especially around treats. It’s the American way. Why it’s a natural part of our human nature. Matter of fact if we weren’t occasionally contradictory no doubt we’d be considered dull.”
She opened the box. Their lusciousness glistened. I started to reach for them. With a smile she moved the box away and handed me two. Then she closed it. “Don’t look for these in the cupoard,” she said. “I’m going to hide them.”
“Why bother? We share everything, especially candy.”
“Yes, and I will share them with you, maybe one or two at a time, tomorrow or the next day.” And with a smile she left the room and went into the bedroom holding the box as though it were full of precious gems.

Spending Time in Nature
By Madisyn Taylor

Because we instinctively know that nature is good for us on many levels, it’s not unusual to feel powerfully drawn to it.
In this modern age, we spend so much time indoors, focused on the busyness of our lives and disconnected from the earth. But much of what we truly need can only be found under the naked sky, alongside tall trees, on open plains, or in the sound of running water. Spending time in nature allows us to commune with other living beings and to find comfort in the nurturing embrace of Mother Earth. You can’t help but experience a different sense of self while walking in a wood or traversing a mountainside. Being in nature connects us to the earth, grounding us as we walk, unhindered by concrete, upon her. Surrounded by other living beings, both bigger and smaller than we are, we remember that human beings are simply one form of life in this vast universe.

Because we instinctively know that nature is good for us on many levels, it’s not unusual to feel powerfully drawn to it. Even if you live in a city or find it difficult to travel to a forest or the countryside, there are a myriad ways to reconnect with nature. When you step out of your door each morning, pause for a minute and close your eyes long enough to let your senses absorb your surroundings. Listen and breathe deeply, until you hear the wind rustling through branches, smell rain on damp grass, and see the reflection of leaves brushing up against windowpanes. If you have time, crouch down and closely examine any nearby grass and soil. The sights, sounds, smells, and sensations we experience that are part of nature can remind us of all the gifts Mother Earth grants us each day.

Spending time connecting with nature nourishes the soul, reminds you that you are never truly alone, and renews you by attuning you to the earth’s natural rhythms. Taking a walk under the stars or feeling the wind on your face may be all it takes for you to reconnect with nature. Remember, you are as much a part of nature as are the leaves on a tree or water bubbling in a brook.

Mookaite: The Grounding Stone of Self-Healing

Properties: This is the grounding stone of self healing. It centers and roots our etheric energies to Earth. Mookaite physically stabilizes and fortifies our ego, balance emotions and assists with mirroring energy (reflecting back what you need to see.) Therefore, the stone’s coloring associates it with the lower Chakra including the Root, Sacral and Solar Plexus. Use this stone when you are trying to make a specific decision. Mookaite allows one to be more flexible and therefore, have a new perspective, perception or focus. Its grounding qualities allow for this “awareness of new ideas” as well as the ability to execute it. The warmer the colors (reds, oranges, yellows), the more like an old comforting friend this stone can be to you. When the stone has more yellow to beige tones, it brings more empowerment and strength. These stones help build self esteem. Since it is a grounding stone, it works well when we are dealing with fearful situation or feel we need a little protection. Consider this stone as a meditation stone as mookaite promotes inner calm while simultaneously promoting the desire for change.

Folk Remedies: Known as a healing stone, the stone can be used to focus on someone’s health. It is a great crystal for inducing one’s self-healing. Particularly effective for boosting and giving strengthens to the immune system, it is often used with additional stones for detoxifying blood. I have seen this stone used in treating water retention and weight gain. As its focus seems to be mostly around the middle and lower Chakra, it is helpful in treat stomach disorders, as well as, hernias.

Feng Shui: This stone works beautifully in the Center area postion, as it represents earth, health, healing and balance.

Crystal Cleansing: method 1 – 3 and method 5 – 7

History: Mookaite (SiO2) Silicified Porcelanite, is from the Jasper family and comes from Mooka Creek in Western Australia. Also known as mookite or just mook jasper in Australia, these stones surface around the Carnarvon Basin, often near a huge sheep farm near a region called Mooka Station. The local aboriginal tribes have a word, “mooka” which means “running waters”. Its reference is to the many fresh water springs that feed Mooka Creek.
