Positivity, Protection & Psychic Tincture

Magickal tinctures are another form of using the smell of botanicals to help focus intent and energy by stimulating your consciousness through smell. Using different types of herbs and resins can help focus energy for specific intents. They’re also a great way to create simply aromatics for the home, with of course some added magickal stimulus. You can make tinctures for a variety of uses, depending on the herbs you use. Alcohol based tinctures have a longer shelf life, often lasting several years, but tinctures can also be made with glycerine, for bathing spells, and for consumable tinctures you can use vinegar or even honey. Obviously check with your provider and research whether the herbs  you wish to include are consumable …

End of the Year: A Personal Way to Work with Mercury Retrograde – Cosmic Sensations

Astro Facts:  The 19th of December Mercury turned retrograde, less than 1 degree before the exact conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury will be retrograding Capricorn, and getting back into Sagittarius for few days. This retrograde transition will last 3 more weeks. Sun is now in Capricorn, along with Pluto and Mercury: end of the year. Mars is now in Pisces, along with Neptune and Chiron.

This is an interesting way to leave 2016 and start a new year.

Mercury was conjunct to Pluto, and less than a degree before the exact conjunction, it turned retrograde on the 19th of December, 2016.

As some people already know, Mercury retrograde is a time to slow the pace of our activities and re-think, re-assess, reflect and re-evaluate our choices and actions.

With Mercury retrograde, important decisions deserve more time for being evaluated, while every-day experiences deserve assimilation and calmed observation. It is a time for grounding our perceptions. For appreciating the things we normally don’t.

Elder Mother, The Wild Hunt, And The Winter Solstice

If you follow the sun, you’ll find that, as fall edges into winter, it slips further and further south. The angle of the sun’s rays gets shallower, and the days become shorter with the sun in southern skies. But every year, it turns back and begins its northward course right around the time of the winter holidays: a new light is reborn, and we can start fresh in a new year. The Winter Solstice.That said, many traditional cultures used the moon as an easier form of time-tracking. Her course, when accounting for the earth’s orbit around the sun, runs about 29-30 days from full moon to full moon. The moon cycle also divides neatly into four segments of about 7-8 days each, making it a useful way to mark the more practical weekly calendar. The moon traces more intimate rhythms, while the sun holds the broad, seasonal cycles.But the lunar and solar calendars are offset: while there are about twelve full moons in a year, that’s not quite enough to account for all the days between one winter solstice and the next. In fact, there are about 11-12 extra days after twelve lunar cycles before the sun synchronizes with the calendar again. So, in order to keep the daily household rhythm and the seasonal agricultural rhythm aligned, our ancestors simply inserted twelve extra days at the beginning of the year, right after the Winter Solstice. These days existed outside of the normal lunar calendar, and after they were over, the weekly reckoning could recommence and be in line with the solar cycle again. This, of course, is the origin of the “twelve days of Christmas”.

ROWW Responds to Gatlinburg Fire

On December 1, just two days after a fire ripped through the Great Smoky Mountains, Reach Out WorldWide was on the ground in eastern Tennessee.

This deployment was ROWW’s first response to a large-scale fire; a fire that left nearly 20,000 acres burned, over 2,000 structures damaged or destroyed, 175 people injured and at least 14 dead. Two juveniles have been charged with aggravated arson.

ROWW was among the first NGOs to arrive on scene and immediately went to work by assisting the local government to set up a volunteer coordination center and assess the damage with the local fire department as soon as the gates were opened. Reach Out WorldWide, partnered with and All Hands Volunteers, were the lead VOAD teams instrumental in fast tracking the opening of Gatlinburg to additional volunteers.

21 Ways to Celebrate Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice – also known as Yule – is one of my favourite times of the year…. okay, my absolute favourite time of year. But maybe I say that for all holidays!

And while I love the major celebrations of Samhain (the start of the Dark Half of the year in the Celtic Wheel of the Year) and Beltaine (the beginning of the Light Half of the year), there is something about Winter Solstice that touches so many. Virtually all cultures and faiths celebrate Father Sun and the return of the light at Solstice.

So what is Solstice? The word solstice comes to us from two Latin words, sol  (the Sun) and sistere (to stand),  referring to the standing sun that we experience twice a year. During the days around the solstice, the Sun appears to stop in its travels (particularly dramatic in polar regions!).

On Solstice, our ancestors celebrated the return of the Sun with feasts, music and art, rituals, greenery, camaraderie and – most importantly – symbols of the Sun such as bonfires and candles. And many carried on the tradition for a full 13 nights / 12 days (in the Celtic world, the day began and ended at sunset), a tradition some of us may recognize as the root of the Twelve Days of Christmas.

Happy Winter Solstice

Please check with your Doctor or Pharmacist that any herbal remedies have NO contraindications with your prescription medications.

I confess winter has become my favorite season.  Especially when it is as cold and snowy as this one has been.  I love the silence of a landscape blanketed in snow.  I love fires and hot tea and snow in my boots.  I have finally embraced the fact that winter is not my slow time and that hibernation isn’t really a possibility in this line of work.  I have decided to embrace the waxwings and the deer and keep moving like they do.  I play like the squirrels with my family and try to keep it as simple as possible, staying close to home.  As the year 2016 comes to an end it is time to reflect while gazing into a warm fire and to give thanks for all the good things and good people in my life.  I am truly blessed and feeling the abundance.
