Altar Design: Drafting the Plans for Manifestation
Date: 2016-02-08   By: Michael Furie
Traditionally, when performing magic, a practitioner has an altar of some sort on which to work. The altar, of course, can be anything from an elaborately carved table to a dresser top or even just a cleared section of kitchen counter. How can we make our altar design and layout maximize the power of our magical goals? Michael Furie, author of Spellcasting: Beyond the Basics, explains.
Fall in Love with Yourself This Valentine’s Day: Uncovering Your Amazing Gifts through the Five Elements
Date: 2016-02-08   By: Leta Herman & Jaye McElroy
Image by Jaye McElroy Who is the most significant person in your life? Well...YOU are! Even if you are in a loving relationship, the most important factor to attaining "true" love is truly loving yourself. When you fall in love with yourself, you then share that love with others, and yes, possibly even with a significant other. But that is
Surviving Venus and Mars Retrogrades
Date: 2016-02-01   By: Bernie Ashman
Many people are aware of the trials and tribulations that can come with Mercury retrograde periods. But what about surviving—and thriving—during periods of Venus retrograde and Mars retrograde?

How to Use Affirmations That Work
Date: 2016-01-18   By: Bernie Ashman
For some people, not only do affirmations not work, but they can also actually make things worse. How can we create affirmations that will work for us and allow us to avoid accidental self-sabotage? Amy B. Scher, author of How to Heal Yourself When No One Else Can, provides some tips and tricks.
The Moon as Calendar and Timepiece
Date: 2016-01-16   By: Susan Pesznecker
The Moon is a happily familiar sight when we gaze into the night sky. And thanks to cycles of rotation and celestial motion that are both constant and continuous, we needn't simply admire them from afar; we can also use the Moon to judge time of day and the passing of each month. In this article from Llewellyn's Moon Sign Book, Susan Pesznecker illustrates how we can use the Moon as both a calendar and as a gauge of time.
Nature Spirituality From the Ground Up: Exploring the Totemic Ecosystem
Date: 2016-01-11   By: Lupa
Most people who work with animal totems and other animal spirits don't do much with their plant, fungus, and other counterparts. There's nothing wrong with being a specialist; but, sometimes we get so tunnel-visioned on our fellow animals that we forget there's anything else out there. How can we re-connect with our full ecosystem, both locally and globally? Lupa, author of the new Nature Spirituality from the Ground Up, explains.
The Art of Introspection in a Self-Obsessed World
Date: 2016-01-04   By: Lupa
There is no denying that we live in a time and a culture that is focused on self, and our efforts to be known and seen how we want to be perceived usually produces the opposite outcome than the one we intend. How can we become what we want to be, rather than appearing how we want? Jennie Lee, author of True Yoga, illustrates the power introspection has to change our lives for the better.
How to Use Tapping to Ease Stress, Pain, and Grief
Date: 2015-12-28   By: Lupa
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), or tapping, is a simple technique to release your stress and overwhelm, emotional pain and bad memories, limiting beliefs and unhelpful ways of thinking, and challenging behaviors. It is also regularly used to address physical and emotional issues as well as performance challenges. It is energy psychology and not talk therapy. It encompasses the body and the mind, as well as the body's energy system. It's quick, it's easy, it's free, and anyone can use it. So how do we begin to use EFT to address our issues? Kathilyn Solomon, author of Tapping Into Wellness, explains.
5 Steps to Achieve Any Goal
Date: 2015-12-21   By: Nathalie W Herrman
We really, truly, can achieve any goal in life. It may be finances, or time, or a shift in attitude or behavior. However, the process might not be easy, nor at first enjoyable. In order to make it a reality, we have to set it up. Here Nathalie Herrman, author of The Art of Good Habits, present a five-step process for achieving our goals.
Double Sagittarius Union: Jim Morrison & Pam Courson
Date: 2015-12-14   By: Nathalie W Herrman
Brad Kronen's new book, Love in the Stars, profiles the romantic dynamics created between each of the twelve signs of the Zodiac whenever dating one another. The book illustrates that every combination of sign can work together, but that some combos take more work than others just to achieve a state of equilibrium. This is especially true when you consider the astrological rule of thumb that same-signed unions are generally frowned upon, due to each sign having its own unique issues to confront whenever dating itself. Since we're currently in the sign of Sagittarius, he discusses the issues that can arise with same-sign unions through the lens of the double Sagittarius couple Jim Morrison & Pam Courson.

You might have noticed New Year's Day tends to fall at different times in different cultures. For example, Chinese New Year falls in late January or February (at the new moon of their first lunar month).
