The Moon

Continuing from the previous post of aligning with Universal Powers for effective magickal practices…….

In this post I will be discussing the second of the Sacred Seven that I have been mentioning in the previous posts, the Moon.

As a practitioner of the Craft, the Moon is by far the most influential in my life.

Where does one start describing the essence of their own Psyche that is such a significant part of this incredible celestial energy?

Just like everything that exists on this earth and in the cosmos, the Moon shows its energy, its influence and its power through its phases, influencing the ever-evolving soul or what the ancient Greeks called the Psyche. Each Moon phase has an influence according to the Energy, Frequency and Vibration omitted by the rest of the celestial sphere. NOTHING stands alone, EVERYTHING is connected.

Moon magick is an experience that teaches you that nothing is separate and that everything is connected. It allows you to see deep into not only your own soul but that of the Great Mother and the Cosmos.

Moon magick to me is ‘Moon Medicine’. One that heals the body, spirit and soul, remembering that all three are one. By practicing Moon Medicine one learns the rhythm of the self that is connected to that of the earth and beyond.  A true Witch is connected to the moon through this Moon Medicine and understands its connection to the healing aspect of the self and all those around him/her.

The true strength in understanding the Moon is by learning what it affects. The herbs, flowers, plants that are at their most potent in the evening and at what phases of the moon they are their most active. Which animals are at their most active and what is it that they do and why they do it.

The Moon’s gravitational pull has an enormous influence on all our water ways and the earth’s core. The waterways such as the lakes, rivers and oceans have an important influence and impact on the earth’s weather system. Study the way human beings act at certain times of the month. The best way to do this is to start with yourself.

Moon Diary

Begin by creating a moon diary, one that shows you the different phases of the moon and the seasons. In the diary you can add your magickal herb correspondence for that particular month, your spell work, your meditations done, your rituals and of course your feelings and emotions. You could also add the celestial influences of that month such as planets, asteroids eclipses, retrogrades and so forth. You can add your personal observations of people around you, animal and plant life. Add any further readings that you have done that have influenced your magickal work. I know from personal observation that at certain times of the month I’m drawn to do certain things, go certain places and read or research certain books and subjects.

You could say that it is a little like a Grimoire, well it is, and it is that of the moon and its magick……

As everything is connected, the Moon Journal or Diary is there to help you connect to the energy of the Moon and that of everything that is influenced by it.

The Different Phases of the Moon.

Psyche

One of the most important human aspects in the essence that is influenced by the Moon is that of the Psyche.

In fact Psyche was a Goddess in ancient Greece that was the personification of the soul, one that was attributed to the Feminine Spiritual and Psychological growth, and no it’s not only for the female, it’s the Feminine, one that is imprinted in both men and women. This is where the origins of the word Psychology comes from.

The Sun

Continuing from the previous post of aligning with Universal Powers for effective magickal practices…….

In this post I will be discussing the first of the Sacred Seven that I have been mentioning in the previous posts, the Sun.

You might be surprised to know that the Sun is considered a star, in antiquity however it was considered a planet.

The Sun is by far the largest object in the solar system. It contains more than 99.8% of the total mass of the Solar System (Jupiter contains most of the rest).

Ahhhhhh the giver of life and the bringer of energy. It’s no wonder throughout time the Sun has been worshiped by everything, including all our planets, asteroids and everything and everyone here on earth.

Have you seen the way the sunflower turns to hail the sun, or the way plants and trees grow to the light, animals do it too? We as humans are unable to live without this beautiful ball of energy literally. Our entire world and celestial sphere is dependent on this energy.

The Sun is attributed to the element of Fire, the aspect of creation that propagated all of existence. It comes under many names, there is not one culture on earth during humanities existence that has not perceived its power and strength and therefore dedicated an appropriate God head to this Star.

A list of endless solar deities listed in Wikipedia alone, in the link provided below.

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

 

Element– Fire

Colour– Gold

Solar Mineral– Gold

Crystals– Amber, citrine, tiger’s eye, yellow topaz

Plants & herbs–  Sunflower, calendula, marigold, orange, citron, saffron, pine, rosemary, heliotrope, bay laurel, daisy, walnut, acorn, maize, wheat, hops, cloves, cinnamon- and the list goes on…….

Day- SunDay

Holidays– Winter and Summer Solstice

Zodiac– Leo, Sagittarius, Aries,

Magick– Prosperity, wealth, wealth, growth, confidence, clarity, commonality, abundance, truth, harmony, partnerships.

Chakra– Heart

 

Sun Meditation

Having a love affair with the Sun is really quite magickal.

  • The energy of the Sun that is received as rays of light, sends codes through our entire being to recharge and energise our soul.
  • Face the Sun and allow its divine energy to illuminate your being through every cell in your body
  • Soak in the light by bringing it into your body through your heart space. It is through the heart space that the Suns energy is soaked through to energise the rest of your chakra system. The sun through the heart space is the powerhouse for your chakras and therefore your entire cellular body.
  • Envision the interior of your body glowing in a red light
  • See your bones, veins, muscles, arteries, venules, your skull, your arms, legs, chest, your entire body and ALL of its organs filled with this energy
  • Know that every aspect of your body, that also includes your spirit and your soul is aware of the Sun
  • Sit and enjoy this for as long as you dare, continue to breathe rhythmically and enjoy. Do this every morning. Salutations to the Sun every morning is probably one of the most invigorating things you can ever do in your life.
  • If there is no Sun, you simply need to imagine this beautiful ball of light, it’s as simple as that!!!

Use the above information including the meditation to make a Sun spell!

May your next Sunday morning be a magickal one.

The Hymns of Orpheus

By Hypatia

Written for Coven Life

28/07/2019

 

“Sing to me oh Muse”… The Nine Muses of the Greek Mythology were deities that gave artists, philosophers and individuals the necessary inspiration for creation. The Greek word “mosis” refers to the desire and wish. The word museum also comes from the Greek Muses.

The very first Hymn that Orpheus offers in his scared texts is dedicated to the Muses. All the ancient writers appeal to the Muses at the beginning of their work. It is this work that begins the next series of 87 hymns written to Gods, Goddesses, Nymph, 4 Winds, 4 Directions, Demi Gods and Goddesses, those of ethereal and those of Chthonic lineage, Fairy, Daemona and other nature spirits .

Below I have highlighted the Gods mentioned in this poem and ones that will also be included in the series of 87 Hymns written in their honor by Orpheus.

 

Hymn To the Musæus

ATTEND Musæus to my sacred song,
And learn what rites to sacrifice belong.
Jove I invoke, the earth, and solar light,
The moon’s pure splendor, and the stars of night;

  1. 110

Thee Neptune, ruler of the sea profound,
Dark-hair’d, whose waves begirt the solid ground;

Ceres abundant, and of lovely mien,
And Proserpine infernal Pluto’s queen

The huntress Dian, and bright Phœbus rays,
Far-darting God, the theme of Delphic praise;
And Bacchus, honour’d by the heav’nly choir,
And raging Mars, and Vulcan god of fire;
The mighty pow’r who rose from foam to light,
And Pluto potent in the realms of night;
With Hebe young, and Hercules the strong,
And you to whom the cares of births belong:
Justice and Piety august I call,
And much-fam’d nymphs, and Pan the god of all.
To Juno sacred, and to Mem’ry fair,
And the chaste Muses I address my pray’r;
The various year, the Graces, and the Hours,
Fair-hair’d Latona, and Dione’s pow’rs;
Armed Curetes, household Gods I call,
With those who spring from Jove the king of all:
Th’ Idæan Gods, the angel of the skies,
And righteous Themis, with sagacious eyes;
With ancient night, and day-light I implore,
And Faith, and Justice dealing right adore;
Saturn and Rhea, and great Thetis too,
Hid in a veil of bright celestial blue:
I call great Ocean, and the beauteous train
Of nymphs, who dwell in chambers of the main;
Atlas the strong, and ever in its prime,
Vig’rous Eternity, and endless Time;
The Stygian pool, and placid Gods beside,
And various Genii, that o’er men preside;

Illustrious Providence, the noble train
Of dæmon forms, who fill th’ ætherial plain;
Or live in air, in water, earth, or fire,
Or deep beneath the solid ground retire.
Bacchus and Semele the friends of all,
And white Leucothea of the sea I call;
Palæmon bounteous, and Adrastria great,
And sweet-tongu’d Victory, with success elate;
Great Esculapius, skill’d to cure disease,
And dread Minerva, whom fierce battles please;
Thunders and winds in mighty columns pent,
With dreadful roaring struggling hard for vent;
Attis, the mother of the pow’rs on high,
And fair Adonis, never doom’d to die,
End and beginning he is all to all,
These with propitious aid I gently call;
And to my holy sacrifice invite,
The pow’r who reigns in deepest hell and night;
I call Einodian Hecate, lovely dame,
Of earthly, wat’ry, and celestial frame,
Sepulchral, in a saffron veil array’d,
Pleas’d with dark ghosts that wander thro’ the shade;

Persian, unconquerable huntress hail!
The world’s key-bearer never doom’d to fail
On the rough rock to wander thee delights,
Leader and nurse be present to our rites
Propitious grant our just desires success,
Accept our homage, and the incense bless.

 

 

This is such a beautiful hymn to include in the beginning of every New Year, inviting the Gods, Goddesses, Demi- Gods, Nymphs, fairies and Daemona and all other nature spirits.

Note:  It mentions Daemona- however please be aware this is NOT the Demons that are mentioned in the monotheistic religions based on evil origins. The word Demon comes from the ancient Greek word Daemona which actually refers to a lesser deity. These were thought of as benevolent nature spirit guides in the Hellenistic religion and philosophy adopted by many greats such as Socrates, Plato and Procleus. In fact such Daemona are the beginnings of modern psychology. Carl Jung, the famous psychologist named these the ‘Archetypes’.

If I have time at some stage I will do an article. It is through the misconception of the fanatical mass conversions that such words were twisted and misconstrued by clergy of the monotheistic religions for scare mongering tactics. Sadly they have worked………..

Please DO NOT confuse the 2. I have provided a link for better understanding.

The Cosmic Witch Part 2

Written by Hypatia

For Coven Life

21/ 07/  2019

Continuing from the previous post of aligning with Universal Powers for effective magickal practices…….

So how does the Cosmic Witch connect to the Universal Powers and why?

In order to understand the true essence of the Witches’ Power, it is important that we at the very least try to understand where this power is drawn from.

As I have mentioned in numerous previous posts, everything is made of energy, frequency and vibration and I mean everything. These 3 words define the entirety of our universe or multiple universes.

Thoughts that are set as intentions and become actions are also described as energy frequency and vibration. When these energies are somewhat grasped, one can truly perform what is called by some miracles and by other magick!

“If you want to understand the secrets of the Universe you need to think in terms of Energy, Frequency and Vibration”

-Nikola Tesla

So how do you picture this Universal Power?

This is where you require a little imagination, and I suspect if you are interested in Magickal practices and the Craft, you won’t be short of one. However for some it just takes that little bit more help to try and understand.

Just imagine………..

We are all made of Star Dust.

The ancients have always known this.  As above so below, as within so without, describes the origins of our existence. We don’t need to travel to other planets and out into the Universe to see this. We have this very map inside of us. It runs through our veins and into every bodily system that keeps us alive. It runs through our very being as this is the stuff that created us and the very stuff that takes us away. It is embedded in the Great Earth Mother in what they call the Doctrine of Signatures. Her streams are our veins, Her Earth that feeds and heals us is our body, Her air our breath that fills our lungs, and Her fire (the sun) is what illuminates our spirit and brings it all to life. The Great  Earth Mother joins with Father Spirit to make The One.

Fact– did you know that there are 98 known elements that compose our entire Universe. These are the same 98 elements on Earth!

“From the elements we came from to them we shall return-

Our body to Earth,

Our breath to Air,

Our blood to Water,

Our heart to Fire”

-Empedocles

The 5th element belongs to the quintessence that is spirit.

Every galactic influence including that of the sun, the moon and all the stars and planets in the universe are inside of us. You may find it hard to believe, however we are all made of the same stuff and moving to the same rhythmic energy that is created by the very powers within and without.

Fact– did you know that humans share 60% of the same DNA as a Banana! In North America the native peoples of the land say Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ (All Are Related), clearly they have always known something modern science has just found out.

The ancient Egyptians and Greeks that include such greats as Plato and Pythagoras tuned their musical instruments to 432Hz.

Why is the question?

The answer may once again surprise you. They too knew the connection between all that is. You see this is the very Frequency that Tesla was speaking of, it is the Frequency that the Universe is said to Vibrate!

How did they know this?

This frequency is in every sound that is made by nature, in a frog, the whirling of the wind, the song of a bird, the rumbling of a volcano, the sound of running water. It is in ALL of nature’s sounds. Science calls this the Schumann resonance and the Heart Beat of the Earth.

When we begin to attune ourselves to these natural frequency’s we begin to move to the rhythms of the Earth Herself. Exposing ourselves to a natural environment we naturally fall into this rhythm. For instance a menstruating woman can synchronize herself to the moons cycles and other women around her.

Nature can be healing and therapeutic, it’s because we are tuned to Her Frequency, She who is connected to the essence of the Universe and the Great Father Spirit. We are NOT connected to synthetic foods, synthetic materials for clothes, virtual work environments and virtual relationships. We need that physical and natural interaction with another human to feel their friendship, love their essence. Such things as Skype, Facebook and other social media and synthetic environments DO NOT offer that. In fact the frequencies omitted by your communications devices throws our natural rhythm right off and are in fact known to be very toxic! They release BFR and PVC, chemicals that can accumulate in the human body and cause great harm- Yes I do in fact limit myself on the computer as much as possible.

Our body’s natural rhythm is connected to that of Nature, once this is interfered by unnatural devises, the electrical currents in our body, the very frequency, rhythm and energy that makes our heart beat becomes faulty.

We are a Heliocentric Universe after all.

Without this ball of energy that is made of Frequency and Vibration we would not exist!

So for the next post I will begin with the first of  what the ancients called the Sacred Seven Planets namely the Sun……

In the meantime…..

It is important that you begin to attune yourself to natures rhythm, to the Great Mother Earth Herself and Father Spirit….

Swim in natural water ways, eat whole organic foods. Avoid toxic clothing, cosmetics, and unnecessary toxic medications (if you can). Drink clean natural water filled with natural spring minerals, minimize your time on the computer and other electrical devices. Spend more time going for nature walks, making yourself herbal teas from Herbs that you have grown, observe nature and all her other living creatures, they have naturally attained themselves to Her rhythms. Talk to trees, keep a moon diary that showcases the monthly cycles of the entire earth that include her seasons, people, animals and plants.

 

Many Blessings

 

The Hymns of Orpheus

To Hekate

“I call Ækáti of the Crossroads, worshipped at the meeting of three paths, oh lovely one.
In the sky, earth, and sea, you are venerated in your saffron-colored robes.
Funereal Daimohn, celebrating among the souls of those who have passed.
Persian, fond of deserted places, you delight in deer.
Goddess of night, protectress of dogs, invincible Queen.
Drawn by a yoke of bulls, you are the queen who holds the keys to all the Kózmos.
Commander, Nýmphi, nurturer of children, you who haunt the mountains.
Pray, Maiden, attend our hallowed rituals; 

Be forever gracious to your mystic herdsman and rejoice in our gifts of incense.”

 

I was talking with a fellow coven member just today about this incredible Goddess, one that predates the Olympian Gods and of possible Thracian origins.

She is the Goddess who rules over heaven and earth, the one who holds the keys to the cosmos and the rights of fertility. A triple Goddess who you encounter at the cross roads, the guardian, one that is part of the cosmic creation story and looks over funeral rights.

She is born of Asteria (Stars) and the Nihta (Night) therefore represents the primordial creation of all that is.

May the Great Goddess look over you and protect you.

 

Blessings to one and all

Planetary knowledge that can assist you in developing your Magickal Practice.

 

Know They Self

While embarking on my path to understand the self, I stumbled on the magickal world of the Alchemist. ‘Know thy Self’ the very words inscribed on the entrance of many great temples from Kemet and Luxor in Egypt to Delphi in Greece.

This was an axiom practiced by the great minds of the ancient world that brings the knowing of one’s self in accordance with the understanding of the creation of  ‘All That Is.’

Through the process of alchemy -transformation and transmutation, one takes a glimpse into the world of the Divine by looking into their own being. The Wise person, Witch, Seeker call yourself what you may, understands that the search of the Holy Grail, the Philosophers Stone, the meaning of life and the reason for all existence only lies within. The Witch that realizes their true power and potential understands this well, giving them the power to create a beautiful existence for them selves and all they are in contact with.

 

Alchemy- Word Origin.

The word originated in ancient Egypt from the word Khem meaning the black land. It was here the sacred art of alchemy was practiced through methods of mummification for the goal of immortality. It was then later taken by the ancient Greeks that introduced the word Khemica meaning chemical. It trickled down to the Arabs where they then called it AlKhemica- Al- meaning the all mighty or sacred and Khemica meaning the chemistry. Putting that all together it translates as the sacred chemistry of the Divine. Egyptians were big on magic and it was all through their practice of alchemy that connected them to the celestial energies of the ‘Sacred Seven’.

 

Who are the Sacred Seven?

The ancients spoke of the Seven Sacred Planets that were Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury and the Moon. You may also know them as Cronus, Pluto, Aries, Helios or Apollo, Hermes and Selene or Artemis.

They are in Druid, Norse, Indian Ayurvedic, Australian and American Native Aboriginal Law, in the Far East of Asia to Europe, Scandinavia, and beyond! All the ancients were observers of the same sky, just from a different perspective.

 

The Witch as the Alchemist

Much like the Witch, the Alchemist is the seeker of truth obtained through a perpetual path of encountering the Divine and a mystical path of knowledge.

Alchemy is not just restricted to that of the Alchemist. It is the formulation and the foundation of creation itself. Its essence belongs in all spiritual, philosophical and religious paths. It connects ourselves to that of the spirit and the soul of the earth and that of the whole of the celestial spheres. In fact it is the very root of our modern science, medical and spiritual Reductionism.

Now astrology may not be for everyone, however it is very important, that in order to understand the natural order, and be in tune with the Great Mother and The Great Father, we at least need to learn the foundations of the rhythm of the earth. It is respectable that we learn to understand the essence of the ephemeris of the planetary cycles such as the moon phases, especially when we are drawing down the moon, creating affirmations, spells, wishes, call it what you may. What does each moon phase mean, the new moon, the waning, waxing, gibbous and crescent moon, the full moon? Each phase of the moon has its own energy that is created by the other planetary alignments in the celestial spheres.

How about the energy of the other planets such as Mercury that is connected to the ancient God Hermes. The planet Venus, this is connected to the Greek Goddess Aphrodite and so on. The ancients knew this connection all too well and honored these planets as their Gods. They called them the ‘Sacred Seven’ and built grand temples in their honor. Their temples were built according to astrological alignments such as Stonehenge, the Acropolis, the pyramids from Machu Picchu to Egypt.

In the study of Witchcraft, Alchemy, Wicca etc., in fact any other earth based religion as well as philosophy and spirituality, such knowledge is not only invaluable but imperative for the connection to the natural environment that one will be closely working with. In our modern world of sciences we have completely removed ourselves from this energy. Have we forgotten that the seasons are connected to this energy created in the celestial spheres? The earth’s rhythm is expressed through the seasons, this is why we honor each and every turning of the Wheel. We see this respectful honoring through the animal, plant and mineral kingdom, it is all around us, it is right there in front of us.

It’s important and respectable that a Witch or any one studying a nature based religion understands where the very energy that they are drawing for their magickal use comes from.

So how is a Witch connected to Alchemy, Astrology and the Elements?

Every time you make a potion, an elixir, cast a spell, make a wish on a full moon, perform a ritual for Esbat, Sabbat of ANY form that includes the Great Mother Earth, the Great Luna Mother and Solar father or Solar King, you are performing Alchemy. In fact when there is a solar and Luna eclipse they call this the Alchemical Wedding.  The time where 2 great celestial energies merge in the quintessence of the Cosmos (celestial bodies).

The very elements that a Witch honors are the quintessence of these celestial bodies. Most advanced civilizations understood that our origins were from the stars, the Star Nations, the Star Seeds, The Pleiades etc… It was believed that of these classical 5 elements we (including all that is on earth and Earth Herself) were created from.

“To the elements it came from

Everything will return.

Our body to Earth

Our Blood to Water

Heart to Fire

Breath to Air.”

-Empedoclese- (495 BCE)

The fifth element is the quintessence or spirit that brings everything on this Great Mother Earth into existence as a result of the celestial energy.

 

Please Remember…..

whenever you use a herb for magickal purposes, a crystal, make a talisman, burn a candle for a desire, burn a piece of paper with written words to acquire an effective outcome, collect rain water or morning dew of a plant for spell or any magickal work, this is practicing Alchemy!

When we take something with intention and desire it to be turned into something else we are are performing alchemy. It is the transformation and transmutation that is achieved through the energy of the soul, connected to that of the body and spirit that originates from the celestial sphere, the cosmos, the Universe, the Goddess, God, Great Spirit etc……

The more that you are in tune with these energies and understand what they are ‘gifting’ you, the more effective your magick will become. This method puts you in alignment with the very essence of your path.

In Hermetics the saying ‘As Above so Below, as Within so Without’ explains that what is in the celestial spheres above is in the very essence of ourselves, hence the God and Goddess living within our being. It is through alchemy that we connect and are the embodiment of the God and the Goddess and representation here on earth.

 

What next……..

In the following weeks I will attempt to include a small list of ephemeris that will include the ‘Sacred Seven’ and hopefully this will give you an understanding and a foundation to your energetic emanation of magickal power.

Alchemy and astrology can be a very precise science that includes specific times of the day, hours of planets and so forth. In this short series of posts I will only give you the outline, the basic understanding of where these energies are coming from and what their foundation concerning your magickal ephemeris can be. If you wish to do further studies and have an interest in this area the rest is up to you.

Many Blessings

Full Solar Eclipse on the New Moon- July 2nd 2019

Since the beginning of time humans have been in awe with this celestial phenomenon.

For a Witch such an astrological event is filled with energetic and magical potential. A total eclipse is a powerful “Alchemical Wedding”. It is the sacred union between the Sun- Helios (The solar King) and the Moon-Selene (The Luna Mother).

In such an occurrence, the total eclipse only occurs during the Moons first phase, that is on the day of the New Moon.

The New moon signifies important beginnings and endings, one that conjures energetic growth. At this time it is idea to:

  • Cleanse and purify the home and the self
  • Let go of what is restricting you
  • Make room for the new

This is truly an event that induces metamorphosis to bring forward the new you.

Take the time to go within and be still, clear any doubts and fears that might be holding you back in moving forward.

Set up you altar for the Moon Goddess and the Sun God and honour their union. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Eclipse Blessings to you!
