Beginning the Sabbat with a Universal Prayer

Just before we begin our Sabbat, I would like to acknowledge all that has happened and is happening in 2020, before and beyond. It is a significant time of much change and challenges for both humanity and the Great Earth Mother and all within her. Let us take a minute to pray for the universal healing in this time of need.

“May the Great Mother and Great Father give us strength and refuge in our time of need. Help us to remain calm and strong in the face of uncertainty, help us find compassion without the overwhelming feeling of empathy. Great Mother and Father teach me humility, acceptance and to remember my kindness”

So mote it be……..

If your candle runs low transfer the light to another large candle with love and intent of the energy of the first. Contemplations are done for short periods of time so candle needs to burn for only a couple of minutes at a time, longer if you wish it is purely up to you.

Meditate and ground yourself

Ostara is the beginning of spring, the season for new beginnings and the renewal of life through planting. This is the time we can now plant seeds and nurture them throughout the coming months to bare their fruit. What is it that you would like to plant in your life? What are you willing to nurture throughout the growing season? For this ritual as this season is also a time for re-birth, new life and fertility we will be concentrating on the symbology of the egg. Think of the dark and light as the feminine and the masculine. The Goddess and the God resorting your outer and inner balance.

Mabon is the second of 3 harvest festivals celebrating the equinox and the harvest of apples. On the day of the equinox, day and night is of equal length. For the next 6 months the nights will be longer than the days.  This is such a great time of abundance. All the hard work that it takes to collect the harvest, it is now a time to rest, reap what you have sown and take the time to look at you hopes and aspirations and reflect how they have manifested. Most importantly spend it with the people you love. This is a time of giving, sharing and loving.

Protect us Great Mother and Great Father for all gathered here and those afar who are unable to be with us. Allow no negative energy to touch us, to harm us and that nothing we call upon will harm us and others. We come together in perfect love and perfect trust.

Greeting:

Hypatia – Merry meet brothers and sisters and honored guests.

Everyone – Respond Merry Greet. Please tell us your first name and state or country you are from.

Ceremony:

Please ALL light your main altar candles (not the Mabon or Ostara candles as yet)

Ritual begins:

Ostara

Place green candle to your left and the white candle to your right. Leaving enough room in the middle to place your Yin/Yang symbol.
Place the Yin/Yang symbol in between the lit candles. Place the darker egg into the hole in the lighter colored side of the Yin/Yang and the lighter colored egg into the hole in the darker side.
When done type in “Ready.”
We offer these eggs to Ostara as all new life grows from an eggs or a seed.
Ostara we ask you to bless these eggs to help us renew ourselves as Mother Earth wakens from her slumber. That we may find new life coursing through us as cleansing energy.
Oak King we ask that your fertilize the hopes and wishes we have written here so they may grow and come to fruition as the year progresses.
As the Spring Equinox is the balance of day and night as equals so is the relationship of all males and females. We ask Hecate and her Consort to bless our relationships with others be they men or women. That we feel equal to them and not above or below them.
Take the eggs and set them on the side. Tape the circle of opposite color into the now empty holes. (Before breaking the eggs to eat them write the same runes on to the circles now in the Yin/Yang symbol. The side you write them on should be the same color as the egg they are written on.
We will take a 2 minutes to complete the Yin/Yang symbol. When you are done type in “Blessed be”.

 

Mabon

Your wand in right hand, facing your alter, arms stretched out above head……….

“Autumn Queen and Harvest God I honor Thee. As the change of seasons begins the Wheel has turned once more. A time to reflect, a time to come together in the here and now in this sacred space where all time becomes one. The second harvest has been reaped, now take the time to rest and feel the change as the season passes from one to the next.

My Mother, go now and slumber

My Father go now and dream of re-birth”

Arms outstretched, lower your head and close your eyes, sit in contemplation for 30 seconds.

When ready open your eyes and lower your arms

Pick up the apple and place it on the pentacle

Cut the apple crosswise to reveal the pentagram bringing the elements into your life

Lift the half apple up as in offering and say….

“The year gives way to the next as the season passes and the Great Wheel turns. Ancestors, Guardians and Wise ones guide me. Every begging has an ending and every ending a new beginning”.

Light your Mabon candle now

Take a bite of the apple, put aside to share with nature later

Take the tree branch and shake in each direction, starting with the North, then West, South, East and say…….

“Allow me to remember the summer past as the days grow longer and the days shorter. Memories will warm my soul as the sunlight fades and hearth becomes inviting through this divine light of the candle dedicated to the Mother and Father.

Great Mother calls me forward to rest and lull myself to sleep with her songs as I cling myself to her bosom”.

Face the altar and branch held out in front of you and say……

“May I never forget the summer memories and continue to strive during the colder months. May I take this time to go within and reflect on the Mysteries that lead me to a better understanding of myself, of others and all that is in life and death”.

Put the tree branch back on the altar, take 30 seconds to contemplate about :

The symbols that you have mentally attached to this ritual,

The various projects that you will put in action over the winter months, no matter how small or insignificant they may feel.

After the ceremony please feel free to share the consecrated fruit and vegetables in a beautiful meal with family and friends. Make a beautiful dinner for all to enjoy and be thankful for what is.

Natural Magick and the Magick of the Mind

Written By Priestess Hypatia

For Coven Life

7/03/2020

 

Before we begin to work Magick we need to understand what Magick is and where it comes from.

“You are the most powerful tool in your life. Use your energy, your thoughts and your magick wisely!” “Magick is an art; using reality and the world as its canvas.”

Dacha Avelin

Throughout history the mystery of the human mind and its infinite powers has intrigued many philosophers dating back even further than the ancient Egyptians.

It is humanities natural disposition of ‘thinking’ that is one of the most powerful tools designated to our species. Anatomically human beings have the largest prefrontal cortex across all primates. This part of the association cortex is implicated in higher cognition and affect, one that simply translates as:

Humans have the ability to hold on to an idea, one that could guide our future decisions. It allows us to set goals, choose appropriate courses of action among many options, suppress unwanted and unacceptable responses and reactions and determine and correlate the relationship between objects and concepts. Now does that sound familiar, it should, as it’s the foundation of Magick!

220px-Le_Penseur_in_the_Jardin_du_Musée_Rodin,_Paris_14_June_2015

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thinker

The above ‘Thinker’ is a wonderful example of humanities ‘predisposition’. Yes we live more so in our heads than any other species. Sometimes good sometimes bad, but its moderation that is the key to a balanced human life. Possessing this incredible cognitive behavior possibly separates us from the other living creatures.

On the positive, it allows us to set tasks by holding information to initiate and sustain activity. We are able to observe and detect that activity through emotional regulation. This is done by anticipating and monitoring stimuli through switching our attention enabling us to execute control over life’s situations. Once again, all this should sound familiar as it the foundation of Magick!

“Be mindful of your self-talk. It is a conversation with the universe. You are a being, full of infinite possibilities! Focus your mind with positivity and you will have dictated the direction of your journey, your soul and your being, cascading in infinite abundance.”

― Angie Karan

Moderation for Abundance

Is the key to a balanced human life, one that has the potential to be filled with Magick at every breath. It is the power of the mind that allows Magick to be used for good or ill.

Magick is neither good nor bad, IT JUST IS, however this is a setting for another conversation.

The great injunction of the Greek Mysteries that were the predecessors of the Egyptian Mysteries was ‘Know the self’. In doing so, you understand that the true will and power was of the mind, this is where all the Magick you will ever need lies. How you perceive the world around you is what sets the stage for you as a practitioner of the Magickal arts, first and foremost you need to begin with understanding and healing YOURSELF as the only way to change your life is to change yourself first.

The Liberated Mind

The concept that we own nothing, that all we have is on loan, is a worldwide notion among many indigenous cultures that still holds true to their traditions. The seed of selfishness and greed takes root in the subconscious stirred by insecurities, this is where moderation needs to be applied.

Through will power, faith, imagination and concentration a liberated mind is able to draw to themselves the things that they need by awakening their endless powers one that allows you to experience abundance.

Communing with your own mind and becoming one with the Natural World is the definition of ‘as within so without’, Uniting with the Cosmic Mind is ‘as above so below’ both are one and the same- this is the true essence of Natural Magick. For instance, in order to connect to the element of fire, you need to become that element, same as becoming a mountain, stream, eagle, cat, snake etc, you see through their power, their eyes, their being, or their inanimate structure. This is the theory of say when a Magickal practitioner can turn into a cat, a tree, a bird and in Greek Mythology- Mountains, rivers, mythical creatures and even elements.

So how is this done?

Through the Power of the Mind!

The following is an extract from the ‘Flying Rolls’. Papers written by members from an order called the Golden Dawn.

One such paper is entitled “A few thought on Imagination” dating back to 1892.

‘Imagination creates a form on the astral level (now known as astral projection) or even some higher plane that makes it as real and objective as our earthly surroundings’.

It then goes on to say that;

‘Imagination must be distinguished from roving thoughts and empty vision resulting in an orderly and intentional mental process’.

‘To practice magick, both practice and will must be called into action’

In the next series

I will be looking at The Elements and the Magick they hold.

Weekly Horoscope, Sunday 9- Saturday 15

All Signs

This week we have Valentine’s Day, but have you ever wondered how it got started? According to Encyclopedia Britannica: “The holiday has origins in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, held in mid-February. The festival, which celebrated the coming of spring, included fertility rites and the pairing off of women with men by lottery. At the end of the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I replaced Lupercalia with St. Valentine’s Day.” Wow! Fertility rites! And they chose couples by lottery! (I think this is also the origin of the phrase, “Your number is up!”)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a popular week! Enjoy schmoozing and interacting with clubs and organizations. Your ruler Mars is at the top of your chart, which arouses your ambition. This influence will last for six weeks and it occurs only once every two years so use it! Mercury retrograde will help you because it is in a part of your chart that influences doing research and ferreting out answers and solutions to old problems. Meanwhile, your ability to schmooze is enhanced, which is why you are so charming. (This is because Venus is in your sign.) This is a great week to buy wardrobe treasures, which is a good idea since you are pumped to pursue your ambitions! (You never get a second chance to make a first impression.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Right now, the Sun is at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight, which means people are impressed with you even if you don’t do anything special. Obviously, you can use this to your advantage. You also want to travel and grab every chance to expand your world through study, film and talking to people from different cultures. Many of you are pursuing opportunities in publishing, the media, the law and medicine. Old friends are back in your world now. Perhaps this is why some of you are having secret love affairs? Fear not, my lips are sealed. (Swami knows all, sees all, tells nothing.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This week you want to do something to expand your world because you feel the need for adventure and a chance to learn something new. Obviously, travel would be an excellent choice. And if you can’t travel, you can always explore your own backyard. Meanwhile, disputes with the government and other sources about taxes, debt, shared property and insurance issues might be a drag. Just deal with it. Old bosses and parents you have not seen for a while might be back in your life at this time. Fortunately, the placement of Venus indicates that your ability to schmooze will be excellent. You will be charming and diplomatic with everyone you meet! In fact, a friend could become a lover. (Oh my.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For some reason, you feel intense and passionate about issues at this time. You will notice this because you are a sensitive “feeling” person. In part, these passionate feelings could be due to serious discussions about inheritances and shared property. But also, fiery Mars is opposite your sign for the next six weeks and this can make you feel easily annoyed with others. Fortunately, your saved by the fact that Venus is at the top of your chart. Whatever is at the top of your chart is very visible to others, so this means your charm and your interest in the arts and your ability to be creative is noticeable to all. Nice.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Remember to get more sleep this week because you need it. At this time, you have a unique opportunity to more objectively observe your closest relationships, which means you can improve how you relate to others. This is invaluable. When we get along well with those who are closest to us – this promotes our happiness. Mercury Retrograde will help you wrap up loose ends regarding shared property, inheritances, wills, estates, taxes and debt. Use this to your advantage. Fortunately, Mars will give you the energy to work hard this week. (In fact, it could make you bossy and busy delegating to others.) Venus will heighten your appreciation of beauty and encourage opportunities to travel for pleasure. We like!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You are still in work mode, which means not only are you busy, you are also doing everything possible to get better organized in every aspect of your life. Although we recently had the Chinese New Year, you have one more chance at a new “fresh start” because the Tibetan New Year is on Monday, Feb. 24. (I’m using that as my deadline.) Use this to clean up your act so that you start your new year feeling better organized, polished and shiny! Ex-partners and old friends are back in your world. Hopefully, this is interesting and not a problem. This is a good week to ask for a loan or mortgage because people will be generous to you. You might even receive a gift. Yeah!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

It’s play city for you this week! Accept all invitations to party. Enjoy schmoozing with others. Sports events and fun activities with kids will appeal. It’s also a romantic week so plan on fun with your main squeeze. Singles should not hesitate to flirt. Chaos and increased activity on the home front will require your attention. Fortunately, with Venus opposite your sign, you will be diplomatic with everyone. Admittedly, in addition to dealing with whatever is happening at home, your job is also frustrated by silly, goofy mistakes. Patience is the key to keeping your sanity and a smile on your face.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Home, family and your involvement with a parent continue to be your primary focus this week. Likewise, some of you might spend more time on the home front cocooning. Perhaps you are thinking about old flames who are back on the scene. Sometimes when an old lover pops up, it’s thrilling and exciting. But other times, it’s disconcerting. Be tactful. Right now, Mars is in your House of Communications, which make you energetic, proactive and persuasive! It will encourage you to read and write more but it can also make you a bit scary if you come on too strong. Fortunately, at work, this is not a problem because Venus will sweeten your words with everyone. And so it goes.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your busy pace continues because you’ve got places to go, things to do people to see! You are an excellent communicator right now, which means this week is a great time to write, sell, market, teach and act. Old issues regarding home and family might finally be wrapped up due to the influence of Mercury retrograde. (Mercury will either stall things or bring them to a closure.) Mars will guarantee that you are working hard to earn money but it also increases your cash flow, which means you are spending as well. That’s okay. (Money is only useful if you spend it.) Venus will attract opportunities for romance, socializing, enjoying the arts and participating in sports events and fun times with kids. It’s a great week.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

“Show me the money!” Yes, this week you continue to be focused on cash flow, earnings and assets. Not only are you thinking about boosting your earnings, many of you are also making an effort to take care of what you own. You enjoy doing this because you hate waste and you value continuity and respect for the past. “These were my dad’s tools.” With Mars in your sign for the next six weeks, you will be pumped with energy! (You will notice this because this occurs only once every two years.) Get physical exercise to blow off any pent-up steam that might occur. This is also great week to entertain at home and tweak your digs by redecorating or buying something new for where you live.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Ta da! The Sun is still in your sign this week, which empowers you. It attracts people to you as well as favourable situations. It also re-energizes you. Meanwhile, fair Venus is in your House of Communications and this makes you particularly diplomatic and charming when talking to others. This is why you will begin to notice how much love there is in your daily world. People care about you and vice a versa. You will also observe your daily surroundings with greater appreciation. This is a wonderful influence for you! Unfortunately, cheques in the mail will be late and delays regarding money and cash flow are likely. Be aware of anyone who might be working against your best interests.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This week has conflicting influences. One part of you wants to hide and retire from the busy insanity of the world around you. (This is why you will seek out moments of solitude and pleasant surroundings and keep a low profile.) Countering this is an energetic influence from Mars that makes you want to engage with friends and groups in a dynamic way! You might take charge of a group or you might find yourself in competition with someone? Obviously, because Mercury is retrograde in your sign at this time, silly, goofy mistakes will plague your footsteps. Transportation delays, misplaced items, confused communications and old friends from the past are part of the picture. Patience.

Natural Magick and the Power of the Mind

Written By Priestess Hypatia

For Coven Life

07/02/2020

 

Continuing from the previous article on Natural Magick

“Magick is the Science of understanding oneself and one’s conditions. It is the Art of applying that understanding in action.”

— Aleister Crowley

The mind is where the real magick begins. This is where the ambrosia that feeds your magickal wisdom is stored. Your mind is your greatest instrument of magick you will ever poses and is divided into the Conscious, Subconscious and what the famous Psychologist Carl Jung called the Super-conscious or Greater self. This thought is nothing new and stems from some of the greatest and oldest ancient cultures spread through all of the worlds continents.

The only way you can really change your life is by changing yourself

The magick of thought is the drive of your magickal mind, but it doesn’t stop there. In order to manifest you need to develop the thought into an action that will produce a result. There is an ancient Greek Maxim that says:

“Your thought become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your character, your character shapes your destiny, your destiny is your fate and no one can escape their fate”

All that translates to is you and only you are able to perform magick for ‘yourself’ and have the power that will change your life and in the process shape other people’s lives too.

The anatomy of the thought

So how does all this work?

Magick is driven by non-physical, magickal structures connected to your brain called mental areas. They have the role of your motor cortex (turning intent into specific commands) plus your muscles (executing those commands in the physical world).

You have dozens of mental areas, each one dedicated to a specific task (one for physical effects, another for communicating with systems, a third for handling connections, etc).

Unlike systems (which are shared by all users), your mental areas belong to you.

As you practice magick, more mental areas will come online and connect to your brain.

Conscious and Unconscious Magick

Conscious thought while doing magick allows you to learn new skills faster and gain a better understanding of magick.

When magickal practitioners first begin it is their unconscious mind they are tapping in to. By thinking of what your unconscious mind is doing while you are doing magick this will trigger new connections to your conscious mind. By becoming conscious of how you’re doing magick is the beginning of recognizing the power of your ‘Magickal Mind’

Lammas Tisane- Ceremonial Tea

A images

Written for Coven Life

03/02/2020

By priestess Hypatia

 

Tea Anyone?

Tisanes are herbal tea that traditionally included barley.

Lammas

Lammas is the first harvest celebration, marking the transition from summer to fall and celebrating the bounty and abundance of the garden.

Spell crafting Herbal teas is a personal favorite of mine, especially herbs personally selected to reflect your intentions and the turning of the seasons. Such teas are a wonderful way to honor the seasons during your ceremony.

First harvest Tea Blend for Lammas

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dried calendula blossoms
  • 1/4 cup dried lavender buds
  • 1/4 cup dried meadow sweet
  • 1/4 cup oolong tea leaves
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon dried grated ginger

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a tea strainer or bag.
  2. Pour hot water over the strainer and steep 3-5 minutes

 

Calendula– a beautiful bright beam of sunshine their bright orange and yellow petals are a beautiful representation of seasonal transitions.

Lavender– Often associated with Lammas, this beautiful plan ally will help you begin the descent into the waning and restful portion of the year.

Meadow sweet– All heal of the ancients. Acting as a natural pain killer because of its salicylic acid content, the same ingredient that makes aspirin. Wonderful for third eye activation, divination and honing of your skill.

Oolong– Adding a layer or complexity to this otherwise airy tea. Its earthiness encourages wisdom through reflection.

Ginger– Only a small amount is needed to reach its maximum benefit. Its distinct spicy notes encourages success, money and love.

Imbolc Charm Bags

20200203_115238

 

Written for Coven Life

On 03/02/2020

By Priestess Hypatia

 

Creating seasonal charms is one of my favorite types of spell work.  You can generally make them from things you may already have on hand, or easily pick up at your local craft and nursery stores. The best ingredients are from my random collectables I have gathered from Nature Herself.

Spells crafted at this time of the year focus new beginnings, fresh starts and new growth. Think of it as the New Moon Phase. Ostara is like the waxing moon where you take action and Beltane is the time you see the manifestation, so you can compare this to the Full moon phase.

Set Your Intention

So before we start crafting the Charm bag for Imbolc let’s set our intention-

You can either choose a specific project or goal you want to manifest or you can focus on general new beginnings. For a specific goal, I would recommend adding at least one or two elements to these ingredients to give the spell focus.

Ingredients

  • Small piece of clear quartz, preferably charged at the new moon
  • Pine needles- purification
  • Cinnamon sticks- power
  • Nettles- strength in overcoming obstacles
  • Daffodil petals- fertility
  • Dandelion puffs – making wishes come true
  • White muslin or sheer sachet to place the ingredients in

Method

  1. Light a couple of white candles, or one of your favorite scented candles
  2. Take the pine needles in your hands and rub them to release the scent. Sprinkle the pine needles in the bag and say: “I cleanse and bless this spell, home and hearth”. I also like to put a couple of drops of fir pine essential oil in.
  3. Place the cinnamon stick and quartz in bag and say: “To lend power to this spell”.
  4. Place the daffodil petals in the bag and say: “To create a fresh start and a fertile beginning”
  5. Sprinkle the Nettles and say: “ This is to overcome obstacles on my path to realization of manifesting my intentions”
  6. Now tie the bag and place somewhere such as your lingerie drawer or our car glove compartment.

The above ingredients is just a sample of the endless possibilities that are accessible to you. It depends on your intentions. Rose quarts for love and friendship, Ginger root for fire and power, violet for protection, you get the gist.  Remember to research your ingredients and understand that their energy represents your intention needed.
