HOW TO WORK OUT YOUR OWN NUMEROLOGY

The information for learning about Numerology is for beginners and a brush up for those experienced in Numerology. They will be split between WOTC and Coven Life. The post for the odd number part of this information will be on WOTC. The post for the even number part of this information will be on Coven Life.

Work Out Your Own Numerology

The symbolic meanings that surround the nine whole numbers are the centre of Numerological divination.  Numbers integrate into many other divinity methods, such as the Tarot.  Numbers can represent stages in the unfolding of any process, and can be keyed to planets, days, colours, qualities, character types and Tarot images.  Numbers are also keyed to letters of the alphabet, so words and names, as well as dates of birth, can be analyzed.

Mercury pentacle 4th for blog

The 4th Pentacle of mercury- Seal of Solomon

 

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

In this post I will be discussing the 7th of the Sacred Seven (in no particular order) that I have been mentioning in the previous posts.

Here I will be talking about the final planet of the sacred seven and not in that order, the planet Mercury. Ruling over Gemini and Virgo it is the planet that influences the intellect and of communication and therefore the element of air.

Mercury the planet is androgynous and neutral, it is neither masculine nor feminine, neither positive nor negative, taking on the qualities of whatever aspects it comes into contact with.

The Planet

Distance from Sun: 57.91 million km
Orbital period: 88 days
Length of day: 58d 15h 30m
Mass: 3.285 × 10^23 kg (0.055 M⊕)
Surface area: 74.8 million km²

The God

In the Ancient Roman World Mercury was the equivalent of the Greek God Hermes. The swift-footed messenger God traversed between the upper and lower worlds and his origins can be traced back as far as 13th– 15th Century BCE.

The many associations of Mercury include that of fertility, communication that include writing, messengers, trade, luck, and thievery. He was the patron saint of merchants, business people that were involved in all types of trade. The staff of Hermes, the Kerykeion is recognized as a symbol of trade and commerce and not that of medicine.

As the God of Medicine Aesculapius and His Rod is attributed to the arts of health and healing.

In the ancient Egyptian world he was connected to Thoth that is also connected with communication and responsible for writing the Emerald Tablet.

Astrology

Due to Mercury’s speedy elliptical orbit, Mercury often appears to be going backwards, with frequent retrograde motions of about 3-4 every year. The good news is that these retrogrades are short lived, the bad news is that when they are in that motion they can at times wreak havoc in your life. Caution in signing contracts, breakdown in communication, avoid surgery, avoid travel, heightened anger, frustration, anxiety and of course the list of all your insecurities goes on. Now the majority of the time such retrogrades go unnoticed, that is until something happens in your life, then there is always Mercury retrograde if it does.

Spell Against Mercury Retrograde

If you are familiar with spell work you can try this to draw the positive aspects of Mercury during its retrograde. It encourages harmony, balance, protection and healing is such tumultuous times.

Spell work-

  1. Purple candle
  2. Anointed with frankincense
  3. Surround with your choice of crystals and herbs from the magickal correspondences above
  4. Light the candle and say:

‘My mind is a fortress, backwards Mercury, shall cause no deceit, nor damage. The light and stones shall save me’.

  1. When the candle has burned all the way down, and extinguished itself, take the stones, place them in a mojo bag, and carry with you as long as Mercury stays in retrograde.

Orphic Hymn

Below is a beautiful hymn or prayer to the great God Mercury- Hermes. Use this if you want to invoke the energy of Mercury- Hermes, use the planetary magickal correspondences for extra guidance and remember as with any spell work to understand, observe and respect the energies that you are working and drawing from and with.

Invocation/ Prayer to Mercury- Hermes

The Fumigation from Frankincense.
“Hermes, draw near, and to my pray’r incline, angel of Jove [Zeus], and Maia’s son divine;
Studious of contests, ruler of mankind, with heart almighty, and a prudent mind.
Celestial messenger, of various skill, whose pow’rful arts could watchful Argus kill:
With winged feet, ’tis thine thro’ air to course, O friend of man, and prophet of discourse:
Great life-supporter, to rejoice is thine, in arts gymnastic, and in fraud divine:
With pow’r endu’d all language to explain, of care the loos’ner, and the source of gain.
Whose hand contains of blameless peace the rod, Corucian, blessed, profitable God;
Of various speech, whose aid in works we find, and in necessities to mortals kind:
Dire weapon of the tongue, which men revere, be present, Hermes, and thy suppliant hear;
Assist my works, conclude my life with peace, give graceful speech, and me memory’s increase.”

Orphic Hymn- #27

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

In this post I will be discussing the 6th of the Sacred Seven (in no particular order) that I have been mentioning in the previous posts. Here I will be talking about the planet that is connected to your 6th chakra and spiritual evolution. Saturn is the highest planet in the hierarchy of planets (of those known to the ancients) and thus the closest to the Gods and thus associated with immortality and longevity.

Saturn is associated with time and is timeless.

So what does this mean?

In Mythology:

In Greek antiquity Cronus was the counterpart of the Roman Saturn. Cronus was the titan son of Uranus (heaven) and Gaia (earth). The word Cronus in Greek actually describes time therefore he was the personification of time itself and ruled the cosmos during the Golden Age. Later the Romans adopted him into their religion and renamed him Saturn.

Saturn helps us realize that we are beyond time, that we are one with the universe, originating from the very energy that created us. We are all STARDUST. This energy was created during chaos, and yes the Greeks also had a God by this name that personified the chaotic birth of the Universe.

3rd Eye

This planet assists in unlocking our sacred place in the universe and by meditating on your 6th Chakra you can learn to melt away the complicated world around you. The 6th Chakra is connected to what they call your 3rd eye. This is the place where the human body meets the celestial spirit, it is the Anja (in Hindu).

The 3rd eye is actually our Penal Gland in in our anatomical structure, so once again the ancients knew what they were talking about. Shaped as a pine cone- hence its name derivative, this gland is responsible for secreting melatonin which plays a role in the body’s internal clock or what medical science calls the circadian rhythm, one that regulates our relaxation and sleep.

This chakra is also called the brow chakra as it is located between your brows on your forehead and is considered to be the ‘seat of your soul’.

In Ancient Egypt

The eye of Ra or Horus is actually a representation of the penal gland, not only in a spiritual sense but also in a pictorial depiction.

Below is a picture comparing the 2 with rather uncanny similarities.

The penal gland is where we perceive or see all things as energy around us. This is a place where you gain your multi-dimensional vision.

Meditation

The colour of this Chakra is Indigo. Each Chakra also has a sound, this is the sound of the universe- the sound of OM, the symbol is.

Below is a short meditation on YouTube that you can try to assist you in connecting to this Chakra.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab9LTtBZjeM

You can meditate on the above- sounding the OM loud or within and using the colour for visualization.

Saturn correspondences

JUPITER

planet-glyph-jupiter-380x235

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

In this post I will be discussing the 5th of the Sacred Seven (in no particular order) that I have been mentioning in the previous posts. Here I will be talking about the giant of the solar system, the grand planet Jupiter known as the Lord of Plenty.

Its magnitude commands respect with dozens of moons and an expansive magnetic field, this mighty planet has its own miniature solar system.

“Beyond the sphere of Mars, in distant skies
Revolves the mighty magnitude of Jove
With kingly state,
the rival of the Sun,
About him round four planetary Moons
On earth with wonder,
all night long beheld
Moon above Moon,
his fair attendants dance.”

… Raphael …

Jupiter’s expansive size reflects its principle of drawing us towards a sense of fullness and offering a grander, more expansive vision of reality. Taking these things into consideration as well as the Mythos of the God(s) associated with this planet makes Jupiter’s energy prime for workings relating to abundance, most notably financial prosperity. This speaks both to the laws of attraction but also to the ability to being open and receptive to that attraction through cultivating a broader view of what the possibilities and potential may be.

Writing about this beautiful giant has come at the most auspicious time. It is that time of the year again where we are overwhelmed with all that is happening around us. Using the power of Jupiter to bring the calm, allow the balance within that radiates without and lastly but not least understand that WE ARE sitting in abundance. Jupiter is about realising that precious perspective of having enough, feeling enough and being enough is simply enough!

This planet brings a greater freedom to think and act for ourselves. Such freedom calls for conscious awareness of what we do, why we do it, and how we balance the urge for instant gratification against the need to invest in the future. If we fail to acknowledge the value of caution and moderation, we can be fooled into exploiting opportunities that lead towards financial failure, spiritual dissatisfaction, or the boredom and depression that accompanies surfeit and over-indulgence.

In Greek mythology Jupiter is Zeus, heavenly father, lord of the day and king of the gods. No star shines as brightly as his; Venus may do so at times, but she is constricted to morning and evening. Jupiter’s celestial brilliance portrays vitality, power, strength, and freedom of will.

Jupiter and Spell Work

Always remember, that “with great power comes great responsibility” and I would add that with more knowledge comes greater selectivity in its use.

There are many spells concerning the energy of abundance, freedom, expansion, etc….. regarding the planet Jupiter. Allow yourself to be adventurous and create your own. Here I will give you the correspondences and a kind reminder of the foundations concerning undertaking any Spell Work. The rest is up to you!

Remember with ANY Spell Work it is important to Recognise and Understand:

Why you are doing the spell work?

When you are doing the spell work?

What you are doing the spell work with- that is your equipment?

Who you are doing the spell work for or even with and most importantly do you have their permission?

What are your intentions for doing it?

What is your outcome?

Define the time span, in other words set yourself a time goal of when you want to achieve the result of this spell.

What are the benefits and what are the consequences?

Are you respecting your space, others privacy and of course the integrity and love of the Earth?

Are you familiar with the rules of protection?

Are you in a safe environment?

Are you in a good mental and physical space to perform the spell work, if not, please avoid?

You need to recognise and understand the powers that you are working with. Ensure you are familiar with those energies and their aspects. For every action there is a reaction.

Spell work can be greatly rewarding, but please ensure that you follow the rules, do as much research as possible and only then can you begin.

Celtic Symbols to Use on Candles, Yourself, or Wherever You Want

One very important thing to remember when using any type of Cleric symbols is to draw them exactly how you see them this goes especially the Celtic/Druid Ogham alphabet. The reason for this is the Celtics and Druids used more the alphabet than symbols either vertically or horizontally but never mixed the two directions in the same “sentence or page” or scroll or stone cravings or anywhere else as the drawing of the “letter” can mean one “letter” vertically but a totally different one horizontally. The same for the symbols if you draw one say upside down it will have the exact opposite meaning than drawn the correct way. For examples let us look at the symbols for the Elements used in working spells, rituals, etc.

pentagram

As you can see Water which is usually thought of as the feminine and he element that guide our emotions that the triangle is largest at the top this symbol also represents a female mammals womb opened to receive a male to continue the sources. Now we get to Fire where the largest opening of the triangle is at the bottom this is because Fire is considered a male energy big passion and tame but chaotic energy it also is a representation of a man stand with his legs apart offering a better view to a female of his genital area with or without it being covered. You may also notice the Element of Earth is a feminine element because of where the triangle opens. The Element of Earth usually means nurturing, keep us grounded as not to daydream every day, all day. The Element of Air is a masculine Element that is said to rule of intelligence and help start new beginnings.

Now please keep all of this in mind if ok chose to use any of the symbols below for any reason. (SIDE NOTE I will use a pen if I plan on removing the letter, word, symbol the same day and place it on the inside of my wrist. If I want it for up to a week I will use a preeminent marker either on the inside of my forearm, back of my neck or knee. If I want it for a few weeks I will use hens usually on my shoulder or thigh. My placement depends on what the symbol, word, or letter are for, how intricate I want the design to be [I will combine symbols or words if the temporary tattoo has more than one purpose. Example combining health and protection]) Where you want to use symbols or any alphabet practice drawing it on paper uning a pencil – so it’s easy to erase to make changes or fix a mistake- over and over until you feel confident enough to put it wherever you planned on. I still do it this way even after using Celtic/Druid symbols and the Ogham alphabet for over 30 years. There are other posts on Coven Life and WithesofTheCraft.com that show other alphabets and/or symbols. On either website type in either the word “Alphabet” or the word “Symbols or Magick Symbols” in the search box.

Here is the long awaited page of symbols I found that started me on this long post. Any questions please put them in the comment section as other people may find the question and answer helpful. Thank you!

These symbols are said to be Celtic in origin.
