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.

Thursday – A day for religious and political rituals. Dress in purple and use tin or emeralds. Wear sapphire, cat’s eye, or carnelian. Use sapphire in rituals.

Thursday’s Angel is Sachiel. Sachiel sort of surfs the days of the week, and in various texts can be found in the Monday, Thursday, or Friday categories. He presides over the planet Jupiter. Invoke him from the south. On Thursdays, the hour of sunrise and every eight hours after that are also ruled by Jupiter, and that makes these times of the day doubly blessed. Keep in mind, that Jupiter magick always makes more of whatever you have. So if you have nothing, this is not the best energy to work with.

Thursday is a YANG or male energy ruled by Jupiter, the planet of abundance and luck. The colors are royal purple and royal Blue. This day has the energies of luck, growth, expansion, generosity, male fertility, olden men, masculine side of the female, legal matters, health, honor, wealth, clothing, desires, men’s professions and spiritual attainment, the Tree is the OAK.

Pure and bright a fountain flowing
From the hoofmarks in the sod.

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”.

Today Is …

The Festival of Isis (Egypt). Share the day with your child/ren or with your child within.

The Festival of the Midnight Sun is celebrated annually on this date by Pagans in far northern Norway. The festival, which pays homage to the ancient Norse Goddess of the Sun, begins at sunrise and marks the beginning of ten consecutive weeks without the darkness of night.

Argei – The ancient Romans honored Mars Invictus on this day. Human effigies made of rushes and called Argei were thrown into the Tiber River. Although there are many details about the ritual, the meaning itself is obscure, although Plutarch calls it the greatest of purifications. Mars was once an agricultural God and the throwing of a greenery-clad effigy into the river may be a symbolic sacrifice of the reborn spring God. Blackburn, Bonnie and Leofranc Holford-Strevens, Oxford Companion to the Year, Oxford University Press 1999

Celtic Tree Calendar: Uath (Hawthorn) – May 13 to June 9 ~ According to The Ogham calendar, May, the month of the female Hawthorn, leads up to the fertile Oak month following on from Mayday, or Beltane. The Hawthorn is a small tree that grows with a dense, many branched and twisted habit. Due to its impenetrable growth, it is mainly used as hedging, and the origin of her present name comes from the Anglo-Saxon ‘haegthorn’, meaning hedge-thorn. Other common names are whitethorn and may. Whitethorn originates from the contrast of her smooth gray bark with the powdery black bark of the Blackthorn;

Goddess Of The Day: Dag
Midnight Sun (Norway)

Themes:  Sun; Blessings; Cycles; Movement; Travel
Symbols: Gold or Yellow Items; Horses

About Dag:  Northern Scandinavian legends describe Dag, whose name means “day”, as shining so brightly that she lights both the heavens and the earth, which is certainly what occurs around this time of year.  As the northern hemisphere approaches late spring, Dag’s inspiring light and warmth are welcome and notable.  Dag navigates the sky with the help of a horse, her sacred animal, giving her additional connections with movement and safe travel.

To Do Today:  This date begins a “day” for Norwegians that will actually last for 10 weeks, emphasizing Dag’s power.  Correspondingly, people’s activity level increases around the clock, as they sleep less to adjust to the change in earth’s cycle.  So, when your inner resources lag or you’re out of kilter with natural or biological clocks, turn to Dag for assistance.  Wear gold or yellow items to tune into her vibrations, and get out in Dag’s sunlight today (if the weather cooperates).  It’s very healthy and naturally generates more of Dag’s positive energy for anything you undertake.

It’s an excellent day to take a short trip anywhere.  If you enjoy horseback riding and have a stable nearby, take a jaunt and ride with Dag and the wind at your back.  Alternatively, use “horse power” and take a short drive in your car!

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Ring of Balance Spell

It can be difficult finding balance today. Being able to come home to a nurturing environment is a necessary luxury, vital to good mental health. To do so, try following these helpful magical herbal tips. Honeysuckle has a calming energy, making it perfect for what we most need in our daily lives. For this spell, form vines of honeysuckle into a small wreath, focusing on having a balanced home. Decorate the wreath with objects, herbs, or flowers representing things you need to bring into your home in order for the energy to feel more balanced. Hang the wreath in your home for a week, and afterward leave it as an offering outside where you think its energy is needed.

Goddess come near. Accept our worship.
Bless us. Let us prosper. Bring us fruit.
May our furrows be straight and deep.
May you, rich as milk. feed us deeply.
You are the center of the altar
where we make sacrifice.
You are the priestess and the farmer.
You are the living earth itself.
~Indian Prayers From Rig Veda and Harivama

These Indian prayers remind us of the connection the ancients saw between the earth and humankind – a connection that was continually reinforced by ritual. Ritual need not be complex or elaborate. Something as simple as bowing to the rising sun was an important ritual to many people throughout the world. Rituals like that, and the sacrifices of first fruits typical of farming folk, reminded those who performed them of the complex interconnections between the earth and her children.

What rituals do we perform today? Instead of bowing to the sun, we turn on the radio. Instead of offering our first fruits, we buy new clothes. We have become, as a nation, mindless consumers of earth’s gifts. What if, for one day, we thanked the Goddess for every gift as we accepted it? How might our consciousness, our world, be transformed?
