Witches and Pagans celebrate the New Year on Halloween, or Samhain, as it is known in Pagan circles. This is the time in the Wheel of the Year when the veil between worlds is the thinnest and the Magick is strong. Traditionally, Beltane (30 April) is the Sabbat for Love Magick (Magick with a ‘k’ is used by practitioners to differentiate it from stage magic tricks) but the Mandala spell is not a normal love spell; It’s a spell to help you prepare for True Love and establish an energetic bond between you and your unknown future Soul Mate lover, rather than trying to bind a known lover to you. It also allows you to call on the help of your ancestors for subtle intuitive guidance about the characteristics to be looking out for.
You will need:
- A Tarot deck to divine the potential of your magick
- A candle for honouring your ancestors and ask for their guidance/blessing
- An animal oracle (or you can use a FREE online Animal Oracle) to decide the theme of the Mandala
- A print-out of the mandala of your choice
- Colouring pens
Before you begin, make sure that you have a couple of hours to yourself when you won’t be disturbed. Light some incense and play soft music if you think this will help you relax and be creative. Continue reading
Victor Hugo speaks of soul mate love more beautifully than any other author I know. When Marius and Cosette have that first meeting and they first kiss, they become one as only soul mates can. Both are innocent, pure and open to love, which enabled the following dynamic to develop:
These two hearts poured themselves out to each other, so that at the end of an hour, it was the young man who had the young girl’s soul and the young girl who had the soul of the young man. Continue reading
If you have been reading the Astrology forecasts for the Venus transit, you may be feeling a bit confused right now. There is talk of emerging divine feminine energy balancing the male energy which was purified during the latest eclipse of the sun.
There are whispers and rumours about preparing for Ascension in December… all very mystical and difficult to translate to practical day-to-day living for most of us (yes, that includes me!).
On a practical and scientific level it means that Venus (from earth’s perspective) will be crossing the surface of the sun between the 5-6 of June. This only happens every 100-120 years when we get two transits together, 8 years apart.
But the science and the mysticism of it all is probably not why you’re here. You want to know what this transit is going to mean to your relationship and how you can best harness the energy and magick of it all, right? Continue reading
It may not happen any time soon but I will love again. Love is one of the main reasons to visit this planet at all…
I bumped into a friend in town yesterday and we ended up having coffee together. As we caught up with each other, it dawned on me just how much I was ready to level up in terms of relationships.
Next time, God willing, I will make sure that we are compatible right from the start. In fact, next time it will be the one God has in mind for me rather than the first best available remotely handsome bloke.
I don’t want a bloke at all. I want a man. A grown man who isn’t afraid to take responsibility and who knows he’s here to make the word a better place.
I told my friend I wanted someone spiritual. She asked me what I meant by ‘spiritual.’ That’s a perfectly valid question as we all have our own definition of the term. So I took a moment to really think about it before I answered…
Those of us who want to live in awareness on all levels of our being, those of us not content to ‘sweep stuff under the carpet’ often struggle to find a partner who is willing to ‘go there’… Every time we try to make a go of it with someone who is happily semi-unconscious, we find ourselves in the Tower space with the relationship sooner or later.
The Tower is a great force that trumps the oppression of The Devil. It is a necessary force for clearing out dysfunctional thought constructs and approaches but it is very tiring to go through this experience over and over again.
This is a spread for those of us who wish to manifest a relationship where both parties are awake, aware and doing the work ‘con gusto!’
