Five Magickal Keys to Successful New Year’s Resolutions

Have you considered making any New Year’s Resolutions (NYRs)? You know, the promises you make to yourself about changes in your life, promises that, if you’re like most people, are usually broken before January is through? When you make a NYR, you’re actually doing a type of mental magick. You begin by making a statement […]

Blue Moon at Year’s End

This year, we’ll enjoy a rather rare occurrence – a blue moon (the second full moon in a calendar month) falling on New Year’s Eve.* Technically any full moon on the 31st of a month (such as on Samhain) will be a blue moon, since the moon’s cycle is 29.5 days – but a blue […]

Once in a Blue Moon

The phrase “once in a blue moon” is used to denote the happening of a very rare event. Blue moons, by definition, are when there are two full moons in a single month (the term “blue moon” applies to the second full moon). Since the moon has a cycle of 29.5 days and our calendar […]

Mercury Again Goes Retrograde, 12/26/2009 – 1/15/2010

That crafty trickster Mercury has again gone retrograde, this period (entirely in Capricorn) lasting from December 26, 2009 through January 15, 2010. Perhaps it is because the new year is just days away that this particular retrograde period I’m focusing on rebirth and renewal. Mercury retrograde is synonymous in popular culture with a time of […]

Tarot Readings & The Death Card

In Modern Magick I stress the importance of working with the Tarot. There are a variety of reasons for this, ranging from the way it helps develop visualization and intuition to how it can be used to determine the value of working any particular magickal ritual. In this post I’d like to talk about a […]

More Beauty from the Tarot of Durer

The Wheel’s motto is one many of us will recognize: Carpe diem, or Seize the day! The World card’s motto says “immortal work.” I think it is exquisitely lovely with the god lovingly holding his creation while the little air elementals breath life into the woman and the cat. I think it is tender and […]

The One Gift That Cannot Be Returned

As I look back over the years, I’ve received and given lots and lots of gifts. Some have been as simple as hand-made cards. Others, to loved ones, have been rather expensive. When you give a gift you usually hope that the person who receives it will like it enough to keep. You hope that […]

Sun Moves into Capricorn

Capricorn, The Goat December 21 to January 20 Modality: Cardinal Element: Earth Ruler: Saturn Keywords: Resourcefulness, ambition, tenacity, drive, stability, constancy. As a Capricorn you are practical and patient; you also have a drive (established early in childhood) to make your mark on the world, even if it does take you a while to find […]

A Thing of Beauty

Tarot is visual; the art is such an important part of the experience. And sometimes it seems that the art needs no words. The Tarot of Durer is, I think, one of those decks. However, since I really cannot keep quiet, I will add a few comments. Today we’ll look at the three cards and […]

Happy Solstice!

Today is the winter solstice, marking the shortest day of the year and the longest night. Rather than trying to think of some beautiful, new words all my own, I will let a few of our authors handle it. Here are a couple excerpts to enjoy while sipping something warm and watching the snow fall in the dark […]
