Monday – Day of Emotions ( Day of the Moon )
Monday Magick Power Hours: Moonrise. Key Words:
Magick, dreams, health, love, home and family In the word Monday, we can see
part of the word Moon. In the romance languages such as Italian or Spanish,
this day of the week is called Lunes and clearly relates to the word lunar.
On Mondays, a variety of magick may be worked.
Because Monday centers on the energies of the Moon, things like psychism,
dreams, feminine energy, health, success in spiritual pursuits, domestic
matters, and things of family origin are especially important this day.
Mondays are best for love magick and anything concerning home or family,
thus old saying, Mondays child is fair of face, which seems clearly to
relate to the themes of love and health.
Angels of Monday are Gabriel, Arcan, Missabu, and Abuzaha. Arcan is known as
the king of the angels of air and the “ruler” of Monday. Abuzaha (Abuzohar)
serves Monday, and is very responsive to invocations and ritual magick.
Missabu is a ministering angel of Arcan.
Monday is the Best Day For: Conjurations, Predictions, Knowledge, Writing,
Eloquence. Planetary Association: Moon Norse Deity Associated With the Day:
Frigga Origin of Name: “Monday” is short for “Moon Day” in honor of the
day’s alignment with that planetary body.
Deities: Thoth, Selene: Aset [Isis], Demeter, Ceres, Spider Woman, Bona Dea,
Oya, Devi-Kali, Hella, Rhiannon, Coatlique, Maman Brigette, Sekhmet, Het
Heret [Hathor]Monday is the day of moon goddesses Selene, Luna and Mani.
Meaning “day of the moon” the name reflects the ancient observance of feast
days dedicated to the Moon Goddess or to the planet. Focus on lunar
energies, psychic development, dream or astral work, intuition, family, or

or to draw something into your life.
On Mondays, the best hour to work is moonrise. Get this information from
your local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac.
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.
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.

A Spell to Change the Course of Events
Spell Date: Sunday, November 6, 2016
Today marks the end of daylight saving time, and it’s a fabulous opportunity for a do-over. Think about something in your life that you would have liked to have done differently. In the last hour before the clocks change, reenact that event as best you can. At 2:00 am, you are given a rare gift to make profound changes. Pause and reflect on what was; it is going to cease to be. Set the clock back to 1:00 am to mark the end of daylight saving time, and then act out this event how you would have preferred that it came to pass. Make sure you are not imposing your will on anyone else. This is for your benefit and yours alone. This is the reality now, for the previous event was eaten in the lost hour, and it doesn’t exist anymore.

Candle Magick for Spiritual Growth
Spell Date: Saturday, November 5, 2016
Stagnation is a common occurrence, but it is something that can be overcome. The energies of the waxing moon today will promote growth and change. Choose a purple or silver candle to focus on. Visualize yourself doing the things that will bring you spiritual fulfillment. Hold the candle as you are doing your visualization, as this will help imbue your candle with your hopes and dreams.
After you have charged your candle with your intention, you may light it. This will release the positive influences that have been imbued into the candle in order to effect the change you want in your life. Let the candle burn down completely. Take the initiative and really work toward your goal of spiritual growth.

Lord of Death
Spell Date: Friday, November 4, 2016
As we spiral down into the dark, let us celebrate the Lord of Death. Look into your personal darkness, identifying that which no longer serves you. Make lists on loose paper. Ask yourself:
(What habits, routines, people, or practices do I need to let go of? What no longer serves me?)
Burn these papers in a pot or on your barbeque. As the papers flame and burn, say:
(Lord of Death, take these bits, time for death and destruction.)
(In their place, from where they’ve gone, I choose resurrection.)
(I give you everything that doesn’t make me happy, and turn my attention to the things that do.)
(Horned God, work your magic.)
Now make lists of the people, places, habits, or practices that make you happy. Post these where you’ll see them regularly.

Saint Winefride of Wales, whose feast day is today, was a beautiful young woman who was beheaded in the 600s by a local chief named Caradoc when she attempted to flee from his unwanted advances. Not only was her head reattached by Saint Benno, effectively bringing her back to life, but also, at the spot where her head stopped rolling, a healing well appeared. According to Judika Illes in the Encyclopedia of Mystics, Saints & Sages, it’s possible that the spring and its healing powers were known before Winefride lived, and “her legend may cloak a pre-Christian spirit or derive from Celtic traditions.”
Today, invoke the powers of Saint Winefride’s Holy Well by adding a tablespoon of sea salt to a bath, lighting a white candle, and invoking her name. Request support with healing any physical ailment and/or any type of sexual abuse. Soak thoroughly.

Devotional Writing Spell for a Matron Goddess
Spell Date: Wednesday, November 2, 2016
Whether you’ve yet to discover your matron goddess, have a new matron calling you, or have known your matron goddess(es) for a while, this spell will help you to express your devotion to her (or them).
Carve an appropriately (to you) colored pillar candle with symbols or runes that remind you of your matron (or a matron you wish to connect with). Anoint the candle and light it.
Open yourself to your matron goddess’s energies. Feel the connection between the two of you as the energy grows. Ask her how she would most like you to express your love for her. She may ask for a sculpture, a season (or longer!) of service, a day of meditation, something you cook for yourself or others, or something else entirely. Leave an offering to her. Be open to her guidance, and then express that devotional energy as often as possible to build and enhance your connection to her. Be blessed.

Heartwings Love Notes 749: Taking account of the gifts of the moment
Heartwings says: “What matters most is the small delights of every day.”
As I was driving on the country roads near where we live I found it difficult to keep my eyes on the road. The scenery was breathtaking. The foliage of the trees made billowing waves of color; the rounded mounds of the distant leaves heaped one upon the other simply took my breath away. I thought to myself how easy it might be to get lost in my inner dialogue and miss this.
My mind, like most has a way of getting busy with thoughts concerning what is or is not to be done, or has or hasn’t been finished. Lately I’ve improved. I used to find myself making lists in my head and missing out on a lot of what I might have appreciated had my eyes had been focused outward rather than inward. Once I got into the habit of noticing what my mind was doing it became easier to tame its tendency to run away with my attention and keep me from seeing what was happening around me.
When I take the time to look there is always something interesting to see. Naturally when I am driving I must keep some of my attention focused on what I am doing. However in addition to the road itself I can still see what is in front of me. Too, when I am with someone if I keep my focus on what he or she is saying or how they are feeling instead of thinking about what I am going to say next, it is much easier to pay full attention to my companion.
I’m coming up on a birthday this month, and what I realize about getting older is that it gets easier each year to be patient, to be aware, and to be present within any given moment. I may never know what I have missed in the past when my mind wandered off and took my attention with it, yet I can make it a practice to keep myself in the here and now. That way I can appreciate whatever there is to be enjoyed in any given moment.
May you find joy in each moment of your present.
Blessings and Best Regards Tasha Halpert

A Call To Our Ancestor’s
by Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs
To blood and bone
We sing in stone, In dirt and tree and root
We pray to know In flame and snow
The breadth of all our birth.
We seek your words In food and mirth, In story and in myth,
The ways that you, O Ancestors lived in love and frith.
We seek you high, We seek you low,
In Earth and Sky and Life.
We seek you in the utter dark And seek you in the light.
We seek you from the Void’s old home
From Ice and Flame combined,
From the Tree, Breath and Body,
Our bloodlines are defined.
So come to us O Sacred Ones, Dance and sing and speak
So long we’ve been without your voice, So long we have been weak
Come fill us with your blessings
Come fill us with your songs
And when we die accept us in
To join the Odal throng!
Welcome me, O Ancestors, Holy One’s New and Old.
And through your guidance, Your grace, your gifts,
Let the paths of wyrd unfold.

Magee Goes Trick or Treat
Anyway you look at it sniffing cold dusty floors is no fun. I swept my nose slowly over the cold stone.
“Let Sherlock do his thing,” Chief Mallory said. “I watched him work in that attic at the rest home. I like how he operates.”
Sippi smiled. “Coming from you Chief that’s quite a compliment.”
It was late. We were in the basement of a deserted warehouse just outside town. I smelled unfriendly rats scurrying into the dark. Too creepy! Sippi unhooked my leash. This was not what I wanted to be doing.
I really don’t mean to complain but why can’t bodies like that be found during daylight hours? It’s no fun having to do this at night while other dogs are home asleep or curled up with a bone?
But I know, I’m a cop! That makes everything different. Cops understand that great responsibility goes with wearing the uniform. Police dogs are public servants first not house pets.
Sippi sensed my lack of enthusiasm. She tossed me another smoked turkey strip. “I don’t blame you Magee; just go sniff and get it done.” I chewed my treat, yawned and started to pay attention.
Medics put the headless woman into a body bag. They nodded to Mallory and left.
“Feels to me like the perpetrator’s someone from around here,” he told Sippi. Who’d even know about this place? It’s been deserted for years.”
“Decapitation’s not easy,” Sippi said. “Takes a lot of hate to chop off someone’s head.
Mallory mused. “Wasn’t some mafia hood decapitated in The Godfather?”
“Any of that Headless Horsemen gang still around?” Sippi asked.
Mallory shrugged. “That’s all ancient town history. I’ll check again with Charley Smiles but as I understand it, after the war they mostly drifted off to California.”
Something didn’t sniff right. I yipped, crouched down and stuck my nose as far as I could under an abandoned freezer. I wanted to come up with something. I knew that in big cases like this unearthing clues resulted in extra treats. I wedged my paw underneath but whatever it was, was out of reach.
Mallory came over. “What’s under there Sherlock?” From his jacket he took a pointer, opened it up fully and swept it underneath the freezer. What rolled out was small gold ring.
“Looks like a wedding ring,” Sippi said. “The plot thickens.”
Using his pointer he pushed it into an evidence bag. ” Nice work Magee.” He bent over and petted me. I looked expectantly at Sippi.
“Later Magee. When we’re finished. You’ve already had two treats since supper and I don’t want you getting fat.”
Mallory shined his light toward the back wall, and I could hear the rats scurrying.
He looked at Sippi.” Those things you give him smell like garbage.”
“It’s his treat,” Sippi sounded indignant. “I think they smell like cigars.”
He ignored that. “What if you didn’t? Isn’t sniffing part of his job?
“Chief Mallory, Treats are for dogs like pay raises are for people ” She smiled.”Maybe if everyone at the station got a pay raise, folks might work a little harder.”
Something scurried along the back wall. I scampered closer. It was what I had feared running into the most — a huge black rat with what looked like blood dripping from its mouth. I looked at it hard, got ready to scamper backward if necessary and barked. It hissed, darting at me. I barked louder. I could see something bloody clenched in its teeth.
“What is it Magee? What do you see?” Sippi aimed her flashlight into the black rat’s eyes. It made a piercing noise.
“Pick up Magee, Bopp. Move back behind me,” Mallory’s voice was sharp.
She reached for me and backed up. He aimed his pistol and fired once. The sound reverberated against the concrete walls. A gaping hole appeared in the rat’s body. It convulsed and died.
Mallory put on his gloves, bent down and used his pointer to pry open its mouth. A blood drenched finger fell on the floor. Sippi got it all into the bag.
“Good work Sherlock. We’ll see if the finger fits the hand and if the ring fits the finger.”
Sippi frowned. “I wonder how that body got dumped here.”
“Don’t know. Our night paroles are efficient.”
I yawned, waiting patiently for my treat and to leave. Sippi picked me up and petted me. “Good job, Magee,” she said as she fed me another turkey strip. “Time to go back home.”
The next morning Dick Pride drove up Wild Witch Hill. Ahead were twisted brambles. Fallen tree branches were strewn across the narrowing dirt road making further driving impossible. He got out and started climbing. After almost five minutes he wondered if he were wasting his time.
Then ahead maybe fifty yards he saw the cabin. Could it belong to one of the gang? He remembered Charley mentioning some of them might still be here in town. The tumbledown structure surrounded with trash was practically obscured by overgrown foliage and rotted branches. Near it was a rusted truck. He wondered if it still ran. Beside that was a tarp underneath which was a motorcycle. To Pride it looked old. That’s when he first sensed he was being watched.
“Hello. Anyone home? I’m from the newspaper and need your help. Can we talk.”
His request was greeted by two gunshots.
He cringed. “Please don’t shoot. I’m on your side. I just want to talk to Grace Divine if she’s still here, and show her a picture.”
He thought he saw a small man with a white ponytail disappear behind the cabin.
Again he yelled. “I’m unarmed, Charley Smiles said Grace Divine might still be here. He’s my boss. He told me to find her.”
A slender old woman in a faded plaid shirt, jeans and boots, holding onto a rifle came around the structure. She pointed the rifle at him. “Go away,” she yelled. “Private property. Go away or I’ll shoot.”
“Ok I promise I will but I need to show you a picture first. Please!”
“Picture of what?”
“A woman. Cops say she’s dead. I’m trying to find out more, help identify the body.”
She moved closer. She was small and wiry. Her squinty black eyes reflected hardship and pain. Her bright white hair was tied back in a straggly ponytail. “What picture?”
He held it out. She took it and stared. Tears formed in her eyes. “That’s Evie. Evie Comington. Haven’t seen her in these parts for longer than I can remember. But that’s her. A woman’s eyes remain the same for a lifetime. Who you?”
“Dick Pride, I work for Charley at the paper. He said to look for Grace Divine. Is that you?”

When We Don’t Take Action
The Effect of Not Doing
by Madisyn Taylor
Our actions shape our lives, but what we don’t take action on can be just as powerful.
Life is sculpted on a moment-to-moment basis. Every one of the thoughts we think, the words we speak, and the actions we take contributes to the complex quality and character of the universe’s unfolding. It simply is not possible to be alive without making an impact on the world that surrounds us. Every action taken affects the whole as greatly as every action not taken. And when it comes to making the world a better place, what we choose not to do can be just as important as what we choose to do.
For example, when we neglect to recycle, speak up, vote, or help somebody in immediate need, we are denying ourselves the opportunity to be an agent for positive change. Instead, we are enabling a particular course to continue unchallenged, picking up speed even as it goes along. By holding the belief that our actions don’t make much of a difference, we may find that we often tend to forego opportunities for involvement. Alternatively, if we see ourselves as important participants in an ever-evolving world, we may feel more inspired to contribute our unique perspective and gifts to a situation.
It is wise to be somewhat selective about how and where we are using our energy in order to keep ourselves from becoming scattered. Not every cause or action is appropriate for every person. When a situation catches our attention, however, and speaks to our heart, it is important that we honor our impulse to help and take the action that feels right for us. It may be offering a kind word to a friend, giving resources to people in need, or just taking responsibility for our own behavior. By doing what we can, when we can, we add positive energy to our world. And sometimes, it may be our one contribution that makes all the difference.
