Astro-Elemental Opposites: Aries and Libra
Date: 2010-10-12   By: Llewellyn
Opposites attract—wouldn’t you agree? In millenia past, the earliest stargazers apportioned each of the four elements to a particular gender. So fire and air are masculine; earth and water are feminine. But that means that the oppositions (which are fire and air and earth and water) are both the same gender. This adds an element of harmony
Astrological Aspects
Date: 2010-10-12   By: Llewellyn
Planets form angles to one another as they move through the heavens. If two planets are 90 degrees apart, they form a square. If they're 180 degrees apart, they are in opposition. Planets in aspect have twenty-four hour communication going on. The particular angle that separates any two planets describes the nature of their conversation.
Astrological Transits
Date: 2010-10-12   By: Llewellyn
Transits are interpreted by comparing your horoscope to what's happening today, usually by penciling in the transiting planets in the appropriate spots, then looking at the houses and planets they are affecting. Transiting planets represent incoming influences and events that your natal planets will be asked to handle. The nature of the transiting
Exercise: Create a Symbolic Seed-Planting Tradition in the Fall
Date: 2011-10-19   By: Llewellyn
Invite friends to gather and celebrate the New Year on October 31 or November 1, which in ancient times for the Celts was celebrated as the New Year. (This also coincides with the Wiccan holiday of Samhain, which signals the beginning of a new turn on the Wheel of the Year.) Hand out a piece of paper to each person at the gathering and ask
How to Talk to Your Children About Ghosts: The Dos and Don'ts
Date: 2011-08-18   By: Llewellyn
If your children are very small, you won’t want to tell them everything, of course, but do encourage them to share their stories with you. This not only builds trust between you and your child, but also gives the child an opportunity to talk to you about other things that may be going on in his or her life. If your child is experiencing
Animal Omens: The Butterfly
Date: 2011-08-18   By: Llewellyn
The butterfly is a symbol of the soul in flight from the body after death, beautiful in its true nature, unhampered by its earthly form. The butterfly has also been seen as a shape-shifter, able to transform itself into something other than its present form as it goes from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. Butterfly can teach us
Magical Exercise: Notice the World—Colors
Date: 2011-08-19   By: Llewellyn
Magical practice involves new ways of seeing. In the course of performing a spell or ritual we will visualize the flow of energy. Learning to recognize what we see and how to visualize clearly helps rituals work toward the result we want. Just as we observe the world with sight, sound, and feeling, so do we represent the world to ourselves with
The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram
Date: 2011-08-19   By: Llewellyn
The pentagram (five-pointed star) is an ancient symbol known to virtually all peoples and cultures of the earth; it has even been found on rock carvings dating back to the Stone Age. In the Western tradition of magic, it represents the five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Spirit or Ether. At the same time, it symbolizes a person with legs
