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.

Oya, Devi-Kali, Hella, Rhiannon, Coatlique, Maman Brigette, Sekhmet, Het

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.

Spell for Increasing Prosperity
Spell Date:  Sunday, November 13, 2016
 
This spell acknowledges habits that can sabotage our prosperity, such as spending money frivolously. On your altar, place some nuts or beans, a dollar bill, and a green candle. Place the nuts or beans on top of the dollar bill; these are a reminder that you can draw upon your resources to meet your needs without spending money. Light the green candle each day and think of how you can avoid spending money that day. Can you make dinner at home instead of getting take-out? Can you fix that hole in your jeans instead of buying a new pair? Can you read a book instead of paying to stream video? Each day you light the candle, try to count your blessings and be aware of how little you need to survive and be happy. The beans or nuts represent the bounty of your life: health, friends, family, work. All of these are more important than money.

Farewell, My Green Garden
Spell Date:  Saturday, November 12, 2016
 
Alas! The green earth has shifted for many of us in the Northern Hemisphere. To keep the memory alive, go outside to your garden (or a public community garden) and offer some crystals to the cold earth. Bring to mind images of vibrant growth and lush vegetables, fruits, and flowers. Imagine the glory of the warm season by visualizing the sun’s essence lying dormant beneath the soil.
 
Offer your little crystals by planting them in and around the garden bed. To give the garden an early energetic boost for next year, lean toward the ground and whisper into the earth:
 
(I can feel the heartbeat of the earth; the sun now gestates for spring. Gather in strength and fortitude; rise swiftly, please, this coming year!)

Soldiers’ Blessing
Spell Date:  Friday, November 11, 2016
 
On Veterans Day, we honor the people who have chosen to serve in the military. We may or may not always agree with the jobs our soldiers are sent to do, but we should always be grateful to those who are willing to serve in the armed forces. To show your appreciation for the dedication and sacrifices made by our troops, make an offering of incense and speak the following blessing:
 
(On this day I honor our soldiers, both those currently on duty and our veterans. I give thanks to those who have served and kept our country safe and secure. Your work is appreciated. May soldiers currently overseas do honorable work in the world and come home safely. May their commanders be wise and their intelligence true. Let our soldiers come home to peace and prosperity. Blessed be our soldiers.)

Cookie Monster Magic
Spell Date:  Thursday, November 10, 2016
Sesame Street debuted on PBS today in 1969. Lovable characters such as the manic, blue Cookie Monster, whose simple—and often correct— philosophy that more cookies equals more happiness, can teach us much about spellcasting. His rhythmically stated intention, repeated three times, never fails to yield positive results. Use his method to bring abundance into your life by way of cookies (because everyone knows that cookies make everything better).
 Bake a batch of your favorite cookies, and infuse them with your desire à la Sesame Street as you prepare them:
 
A is for ABUNDANCE, it’s good enough for me!
 
B is for BONANZA, it’s like abundance but times three!
 
C is for CORNUCOPIA, a big word that means “plenty”!
 
It is as I say, so mote it be!
 
Eat a cookie to take the magic into yourself, and watch good things happen. Share your cookies and prepare for monstrous abundance!

Crystals of Protection
Spell Date:  Wednesday, November 9, 2016
 
To protect your home and property, gather a number of quartz crystals (as many as there are rooms in your home), a large bowl to set them in, and some frankincense and a censer. Light the frankincense in the censer, and as the smoke drifts into the air, hold each of the crystals in the smoke to cleanse it and give it purpose. Once all the crystals have been censed and placed together in the bowl, hold your hands over the bowl and say:
 
(Crystals of the sacred land, join together to guard this home; harm and danger are now banned by web of light in every room.)
 
Place one crystal in each room so that the guardians are fully distributed for thorough protection.

A Fireside Spell
Spell Date:  Tuesday, November 8, 2016
 
In Colonial America, fire-gazing was used as a form of fire magic. It became a type of entertainment on cold evenings. This spell can be used to bring a wish into your life. Here are the items you’ll need:
 
A few pine cones
 
12 twigs from trees such as oak, ash, hazel, or maple
 
A piece of red yarn
 
Lay the pine cones in the fireplace,and tie the bundle of twigs together with the yarn. As you tie them, visualize your wish being drawn to you; bind them tightly. Ignite the pine cones, and lay the twigs upon the flames. Whisper your wish, then say:
 
(I work this spell with flame and fire, To bring me my heart’s desire. Be it love, happiness, or good health, Abundance, money, or wealth. Sacred flames, hear what I say, Bring my wish, and let me have my way.)

Apple Healing Spell
Spell Date:  Monday, November 7, 2016
 
It’s said that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Did you know that the apple has magical healing powers? Here’s an apple spell to boost your health.
 
Choose a lovely apple, maybe even a locally grown organic one, and make sure you clean it well. Find a relaxing, quiet place to sit, and meditate while visualizing yourself in a perfect state of health, doing all the things you like to do, feeling no pain, feeling no illness. Hold the apple in your hands, and visualize energy of strength and wellness streaming into the apple. Feel the apple pulse with energy, life, and the power of healing.
 
Whisper into the apple:
(Share with me your healing power, by seed, sprout, tree, fruit, and flower.)
 
Now eat the apple, and as you do so, feel it becoming one with your own cells, filling you with strength and healing energy.

Heartwings Love Notes 750 My Recipes for Thanksgiving Fixings
 
Heartwings says, “Sharing our blessings is a special way to say thanks to our loved ones.”
 
Cooking a turkey is something most of us have done and does not take much effort beyond a little basting at the end. Stuffing and cranberry sauce however can vary from home made from scratch to packaged and canned. Being one who loves to cook, I delight in making my own, and over the years I have worked on my favorites to improve them. It is always fun to tweak even a successful effort to make it better still.
 
I started using honey in my cranberry sauce during a time when Stephen and I gave up processed sugar completely. Eventually I went back to moderate use of white and brown sugar. However, because it tastes so good I continue to sweeten my cranberry sauce with honey. It is simple to make: Put a bag of fresh or frozen cranberries in a pot. Add ½ cup water, bring to a boil and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally until berries begin to burst. Remove from heat, add around ½ cup honey or more to taste and stir well. Refrigerate until needed. The tart berries take well to the sweetness of the honey.
 
I began using cornbread for my stuffing some time ago and much prefer it to traditional bread stuffing. I make mine from scratch, or you can use a mix. Mine is gluten free: The day before Thanksgiving, melt ¼ cup butter, or use ¼ cup light olive oil. Mix into ¾ cup any kind of milk-dairy, soy, rice, almond, or in my case oat milk. Add 1 egg, beat well. Mingle 1 cup medium grind corn meal, ¼ cup coarse grind cornmeal, ¾ cup gluten free flour, ½ tsp salt, 1 tsp baking soda, 3 tsp baking powder. Mix wet and dry ingredients lightly, do not beat. Pour into a well greased 8 inch pan and bake at 400 for 25 minutes or until edges pull away from the pan. Ovens may vary.
 
For the stuffing, break up 4 cups worth of the cornbread-either a mix or the above recipe, into smallish chunks. Melt ½ cup butter over moderate heat. Add ½ cup chopped onion, ½ cup chopped celery, stir well; cook until transparent. Boil ½ cup water, add ½ tsp salt, 1 to 2 tsp each dried thyme, sage, and rosemary and 2 Tbs or more chopped parsley. Simmer briefly. Beat an egg. Add together 4 cups of cornbread, egg, water, and butter. Cook briefly. You can now stuff the turkey, or bake the stuffing covered, separately. Reheat briefly and serve with the dinner any remaining cornbread. You can add sautéed mushrooms, chopped cooked chestnuts, white raisins, chopped apples, or whatever you like to this basic recipe. Make it to your taste, and enjoy.
 
Wishing you joy whatever you serve as you prepare your Thanksgiving feast.
 
Blessings and Best Regards, Tasha Halpert

Stephen Halpert
Magee Goes Trick or Treat,  Part 6
 
Dick Pride looked questioningly at the old woman. “Are you Grace Divine?”
 
          “Maybe. Who wants to know? You a cop?”
 
          “Newspaper reporter. Charley Smiles said maybe you could help us out.”
 
          “I don’t read newspapers. They only print what the Feds tell them to. I don’t read nothing no more.”
 
“That’s not really very fair. We’re not a big city paper. We serve the community.”
 
She studied his features. Her voice softened. “But I consider Charley an old friend and if he sent you…”
 
          Dick seized the moment. “Can you tell me more about Evie? Maybe over lunch? We could go to Starbucks.” He thought about the cute redhead drama student from Emerson who worked there. Maybe she’d on duty while he’d ply Grace with coffee and their spectacular sweet rolls.
 
          “It’s getting’ on time for lunch,” he tried again. “Maybe you’d like a sandwich and coffee at Starbucks and we could talk. “
 
          To Grace he seemed wet behind the ears, she wanted to help him but…. She sighed. Finally she said.  “I don’t talk no more. Talkin’ can get ya killed. Bet it was talkin’ too much that got Evie.”
 
          “But if you can help.”
 
          This time she was emphatic. “I did help. I told you her name, let it go at that. Suddenly she seemed nervous and impatient.  “Now go ‘way.”  Abruptly She turned and headed back to the cabin.
 
          The old guy with the ponytail was lurking near the rusted heap. Dick realized he’d been listening to their exchange. He saw the long Bowie knife in a well worn leather sheath strapped to his left leg and wondered if it could cut off someone’s head. The man looked mean.
 
“Thanks,” Dick called out. Deciding discretion was the better part of valor,  he made his way back to his car. At least she’d given him a name. The morning trek up the hill wasn’t a total loss.
 
He parked at the paper and gathered his thoughts.  He knew he had more questions than answers. Frustrating!
 
Dick bounded into Charley’s office and waved the photo. I found Grace Divine. She told me that the dead woman’s name is Evie Comington.”
 
Charley looked up from doing his receipts.  “Sit down.” He waved him to a chair. “Start from the beginning.”
 
Dick nodded. He sat down and leaned forward. “When I got closer I saw a cabin and a classic Harley hidden under a tarp. Also a rusted heap I doubt could run.”
 
Charley nodded. “Go on.” 
 
“I called out to her, and when she finally appeared, she held a shotgun on me.”
 
Charley laughed. “Sounds like the Grace I remember.”
 
Dick’s eyebrows flew up. “Why didn’t you warn me?”
 
“Better you find things out for yourself.”
 
Dick frowned. “Humph. Well I showed her the photo. She recognized her right off. Told me she was Evie Cummington but that she hadn’t seen her in years. Then she said Evie talked too much which is probably what got her killed.”
 
“Notice anyone else?”
 
“Yeah,” Dick made a face. “A small nasty looking guy with a long white ponytail and a menacing Bowie knife strapped to his left leg.”
 
Charley smile again. “It’s nice to know Grace’s still around and all in one piece. She’s been a loner for as long as I can remember.”
 
          “I didn’t try talking him. And he did his best to avoid me. I thought it best to leave.” 
 
Charley nodded. “Wouldn’t have gotten you too far. That’s Earl Redford. He and his brother Howard and two sisters grew up in these parts and all stayed around.  If there was ever a petty crime the word at the station house was go find Earl. Not sure about the sisters. One of them was said to be strange, maybe off her head.”
 
“Crazy?’
 
“I’ll give Mallory a call and bring him up to date.”
 
Dick looked concerned. “But it’s still my story?”
 
“Absolutely,” Charley smiled. “Believe me the last thing Tom Mallory would ever think of doing would be to call in the Press.”
 
“I though this Earl character was odd. Clearly he didn’t want me to get a good look at him.”
 
Charley nodded. “Earl’s always been sneaky that way. See if you can locate the rest of the family. We may as well keep tabs. Good work! What you’ve done so far has been helpful.” He stood and reached into his pants’ pocket, pulled out a roll of bills, and peeled off two twenties. “Go have yourself a good lunch on me. Maybe even at the Inn. See what you can pick up on Bee Bopp’s Halloween party. Never can tell who or what you might hear about or run into.”
 
“Do you have the names of the sisters?”
 
Charley smiled. Portia and Sylvia. Never could tell them apart. Identical twins with questionable IQ’s.”
 
Dick had intended on doing lunch at Starbucks. Hoping to see the lovely redhead drama student from Emerson who worked the weekday lunch shift. But lunch at the Inn was a definite step up. For the first time he felt like a reporter, the real deal. In his mind he saw himself seated at a workstation drinking coffee in the city room of the New York Times. Before heading to lunch he decided to stop by the station and see Sippi Bopp, but she wasn’t there.
 
Sippi and I went home early intending to help Aunt Bea take care of last minute details for her celebration that Saturday night. When we got there Sippi saw Raven Jones pacing around the kitchen talking a mile a minute on his cell phone helping with Aunt Bea’s last minute arrangements.
 
I scampered through the condo and stopped when I saw Ku perched on his loveseat appearing and disappearing by the window in Sippi’s living room.
 
Ku stretched and meowed. Telepathically he said: “Walk upon the memories of a different time. Dig up the secret and find the sign.”
 
I wagged my tale. I had no idea what he was getting at. But then again I hardly ever did. Aunt Bea came into the living room with Sippi. I saw that Ku had disappeared again.
 
Raven followed them in. “I think we got it all. Everything will be delivered to the Inn by three thirty. That should give them plenty of time to make the preparations.”
 
She smiled appreciatively at him. Her cell phone rang. She smiled at the name on her caller ID. To Sippi she appeared to be blushing.
 
“I thought it might be you.” Then she listened. “I’m hopeful you’ll be there. We have a lot of catching up to do. A few days with you at the your place on the Cape? I’d love to. I’ll bet that old place of your grandmother’s is worth a fortune these days.” She laughed. “I’ll do my best to get away. Right now I’m trying to help my niece Sippi solve a murder case. Maybe you could lend a hand.” Another pause, she listened and whispered something Sippi couldn’t hear, ended the call and kissed her cell phone.”

Bubba Tails From the Puppy Nursery At The Seeing Eye
 
Written By, Patty L. Fletcher Told By, King Campbell Lee Seeing Eye Dog AKA Bubba
Spring and Summer 2016
 
Legal Notes THE SEEING EYE® and SEEING EYE® are registered trademarks of The Seeing Eye, Inc.See: http://www.SeeingEye.org
 
### 1. The Journey Begins
 
All the wee pups gathered round. Their mothers helped to settle them in, and then drifted back to let the king tell his tail. They knew it was time for them to know. The large black Labrador sat quietly waiting for them all to snuggle up close, and get quiet. When all was silent and you could hear nothing but the wind blowing softly through the trees outside he began to speak. His voice was gentle and deep. His eyes were kind and shown full
of love in the flicker of the glow of the nightlight, shining through the darkness. He was rugged and very handsome. His fur shown black and beautiful.
 
All the pups longed to grow up and be just like him. Hi, my name is Bubba, well, Bubba is the nick name made of love that my human mother
gave to me. My real name is King Campbell Lee Seeing Eye Dog. I have come here today to tell you a story. A story of an ancient magical place called The Seeing Eye.
 
Now, many times when ancient magical places are told of, the stories are not real, but this story is real and I am a real fur sure Seeing Eye Dog telling it to you. So let us begin. There are lots of things for me to tell you, and the sun will soon be coming up and my human mother will be awake. She must not find me gone; else she will be lost and afraid. Something I must tell you though is this. I was not always a king. It was not until my mother loved me that I became so.
 
A long, long time ago, when I was very small you know, I was taken from my dog mommy and given to a family. I thought I would stay there. I thought they’d be my forever people, but that was only the very beginning of my journey. I had many people there to love me, and they all taught me lots of neat things. They helped me to learn to sit, and come. They helped me learn to lay down, and to rest. That means to stay. They helped me to learn to go into big stores; ride in cars, plains, and trains, and to not be afraid. They helped me to Learn how to lie quietly in places to eat, and while watching plays at the theater, and just all sorts of neat things. These neat people even took me on all their vacations. I tell you I couldn’t imagine a better life than the one I had with them, but turns out I didn’t even know the half of what was to come. Now, all this time, my family had been working with trainers.
 
Trainers are very wise humans who teach dogs to use their different powers. The puppies gasped. A wee golden puppy spoke up shyly. Powers?
We have powers? King Campbell smiled. Oh! Yes, all of us have powers. Some have powerful noses, and can sniff out bad things or people, or find lost ones. Those dogs grow up to work with policemen, to do things like hunt down bad humans who have broken the law, or to help when small human pups are lost. Some have powers of direction though, and that is the kind of dog a Seeing Eye Dog is. A Seeing Eye dog’s whole reason for being, is to make absolutely certain that humans who are blind can get to and from all the places they need or want to go without being harmed by things like stairs that could make them fall, or car monsters that might come roaring by when they’re really supposed to be sitting still.

Recognizing Your Value
A Matter of Significance
 by Madisyn Taylor
 
Change your thinking to knowing that your life matters and that you are important.
 
It can be easy sometimes to buy into the illusion of our own insignificance. We may see large corporations or institutions, celebrities or successful people in our community, and compare ourselves to them, thinking that their fame or material power affirm how little our own lives amount to. But nothing could be further from the truth. Every single one of us matters–tremendously. Our very existence affects countless people in countless ways. And because we are each essentially a microcosm of the larger universe, our internal experiences affect the whole of life more than we could ever imagine. The world simply could not exist as it does now if you, or any one of us, were not in it.
 
Perhaps you are aware that on some level you believe your life does not matter. If this thought resonates within you, maybe it is time to explore why you feel this way. You may have formed self-rejecting or belittling beliefs as a child to keep yourself safe or to help you make sense of confusing situations. You may have felt unseen or unheard and decided that there was something wrong with you, rather than with the attention span of the people around you. Spend some time looking into where these feelings of insignificance first took root, and see what changes you might be able to make in your life and in your heart.
 
This one belief in your own unimportance could be limiting you and impacting your life in enormous ways. When you shift your perceptions around your own ability to affect your life and impact the world, you may discover wonderful parts of yourself that you had long ago forgotten. There may even be exciting new parts that you never even knew existed. When you gain awareness of how much your life really does matter, new sources of energy can emerge and your sense of connection with the world is renewed.

PEACEFUL  HOME
by hocuspocus13 
 
When your home by yourself in the late hours of the evening pour some fresh spring water into a small bowl and add 2 heaping teaspoons of sea salt
With a wooden stick (you can use a tree twig or a wooden cook spoon) put one end of the stick into the water and salt
Stir it widdershins breathing these words onto the waters surface 3x:
 
Water and earth where you are cast
No spell nor adverse purpose last
 
Not in complete accord with me
Hear my words evil spirit go free
 
Let the water and salt sit quietly for 19 minutes you want the salt to completely melt
Then take the bowl of water and salt walk through every room in your home and sprinkle a bit of the water in each corner of each room
Mentally visualize with all your faith ~ will ~ imagination you can muster up a home filled with peace
Room by Room…If you have any water and salt left over pour it into a dark glass bottle and lid it tightly
You can use it again if you feel that the evil spirit still has not left your home
Sometimes it takes a few tries to rid your home of some of these very stubborn spirits
It’s also a good idea to do this once a month to ward off any potential evil spirits that just may decide on a future visit to your home

TAURUS SUPER MOON AROUSE YOUR SENSES
by hocuspocus13 
You will feel yourself becoming steady at this wheel they call life
 
Grounded Emtionally
Determined Professionally
Shamefully Romantic
 
Everything in every facet of your life from work to relationships will be full speed ahead
 
As your appetite arouses your urge to get up close and personal
 
At this time of the Taurus Full Moon you may just come to realize that something or someone has become obsolete to you
 
Getting rid of the obsolete creates space for something new and better something you can proudly show off to envy others
 
and what’s so wrong with that…
 
Enjoy good music ~ beautiful surroundings ~ desirable companions ~ luscious food
 
During this Full Moon on a brisk November morning absolutely fulfill all of your senses
 
FULL MOON SPELL
 
3 green votive candles
 
3 small pieces of emerald or green glass
 
3 pinches dried thyme
 
1 green cloth
 
Put the green cloth down on a table or your ritual area
 
Set each candle on the cloth 1 candle on top center the other 2 on bottom left the other bottom right so you have a triangle
 
Place the emeralds 1 next to each candle facing the center of the triangle.
 
In the center of the triangle goes the thyme in a small censor or dish
 
You can set this up ahead of time
 
When the Moon becomes Full as your thoughts are on your desire light the thyme
 
Get a smoky haze from it
 
Then light the top candle with your request in mind
 
Follow through to light the bottom left candle then the bottom right so that all 3 candles are burning as well as the thyme
 
Each candle can be used for the same objective or used individually for different objectives for different people…you decide
 
A SPELL IS A WORD
 
Yes…you are going to write your own Spell
 
Write your own words down on a piece of paper handwritten by you for only you truly know what you want to accomplish
 
Only you can know what lies in your heart and burns in your soul
 
Your Spell will have its own magickal powers
 
To accomplish your objective
 
A simple solution to your most vexing situations
 
Remember…the power of suggestion is your most potent ingredient
 
A remedy of positive thinking
 
It is the power of your mind and the determination of your will which will accomplish true sorcery
 
Say the Words of your Spell as you start to light those green candles at the beginning of your Spell
 
HEALING: at this Taurus Full Moon healing Spells are for the Throat and Neck just use one of the green candles for that objective of healing for yourself or someone else. Allow your green candles to burn themselves out during the day of the Full Moon burning down to their wicks as your Spells will begin to conjure and grow
 
Place away the emeralds to be used another day if you like carry 1 with you in your pocket or if your like me and wear boots all the time all year long I place items like that deep into my boot sock do this til the moon goes dark
 
FULL MOON MONDAY 14 NOVEMBER @ 8:52am
 
Footnote: for those who are planning a full moon romp at midnight by the time midnight arrives the full moon will have safely traveled into and settled in Gemini

About The Morning Feast and Goddessschool.com – The teachings here are based
on ordinary magick, the principle that the mundane and the Divine are not
separate, but peacefully coexist in all things. Know Mother Earth as the
ultimate healer, and learn to utilize her gifts of nature. Inside each woman
is a being of wisdom, deeply connected to the phases of the moon and the
tides of the sea. All we need to do is trust our innate wisdom.
