Update on Lady Beltane

I went to the doctor today, only 2 1/2 day after surgery. He was surprised that I was healing so fast from the knee surgery. A HUGE thank you to everyone who has lit a candle and sent healing. I know it is because of your help that my knee is healing so fast and well. I still have a way to go before I heal completely so I humbly ask that you keep doing whatever it is you were doing to help me heal quicker.

Hopefully tomorrow I will feel up to doing a post or two instead of reblogging Lady Abyss’ post on WOTC. Although there are still a couple of more about Spirit Animals I plan to share with you through reblogging them from WOTC. I not quite up to doing research for posts yet because I am still having to take pain pills and drink my tea mixture to help with the pain which is intensified due to me having fibromyalgia.

Thank you for your love and patience with me while I was not answering emails or tending to the website.

by Elysian Life Design

Working with animals on a spiritual level can be just as important as working with angels, guides and loved one.

A Chuckle for Your Day borrowed from WOTC

“A witch who is bored might do ANYTHING.

People said things like ‘we had to make our own amusements in those days’ as if this signified some kind of moral worth, and perhaps it did, but the last thing you wanted a witch to do was get bored and start making her own amusements, because witches sometimes had famously erratic ideas about what was amusing.”

― Terry Pratchett, Legends 1

Nighttime vs Daytime When Working Spells

Merry Meet :)))

I’ve been giving you lots of spells to work with lately. We know to work with the moons cycles when casting spells, and how the the planetary alignment can influence the energy that we raise. Another point on casting spells is the time of day that you cast it. So today I wanted to delve into that a bit with all of you for those of you who may not be familiar, as casting spells during the appropriate time of day can help contribute to the effectiveness of your spell as well.

Nighttime: As the Moon is out at night, nighttime energy is more feminine in nature. It’s a time when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. Spells worked at night should be more personal and emotional in nature. You are appealing to the Mother Goddess. 🙂 An example of a spell during this time would be one to connect with the Goddess, spells to do with love, relationships, etc. Midnight would be the most powerful time to cast these types of spells.

Daytime: Since the Sun is out during the day, the energy would be more masculine during this time. This time is better spells that are more active and energetic, may require strength or aggressiveness. Some examples of spells to work during the daytime would be ones that pertain to business, money, motivation or groups. High Noon would be the best time to cast these types of spells.

Magickal timing: Choosing the right day of the week for your spell

Planetary magick is a complex system which blends astrology, ancient cosmology, and celestial intelligences in an attempt to bring the most effective results. In this article, we’ll discuss the planetary rulers of the seven days of the week, and the best day to perform different types of magick.

Planetary magic can seem cumbersome, especially to Witches more accustomed to elemental (Earth) magic.  But you don’t have to spend hours drafting talismans or poring over charts to add some planetary flavor to your spellwork. Using a very simple overview of magickal timing, you can make sure your working is aligned with the appropriate planetary ruler.

The idea of planetary rulership (and the 7-day week) dates all the way back to Chaldean (Babylonian) astrology.  They assigned a planet to rule each day, and further divided the day into planetary hours.  Later, the Greek and Roman civilizations adapted the Babylonian calender for their use.  Planetary magic was re-discovered by the medieval magicians, who looked to the Classical world for inspiration.  The tradition of using different days for different types of magic was put forth in the 16th-century Key of Solomon, a foundational text of the Western magical tradition.
