Welcome to this episode of Spell of the Day for March 22nd. Today’s spell is a Spell to Strengthen Your Psychic Shield. Whether you are just starting out in the world of the Craft or a seasoned practitioner, you know how important it is to always shield yourself, your home, your property and basically anything you care about. Shielding offers you protection from the unknown and in the world of magick, you never know what is lurking around the corner.
This is a very simple spell, it can be casted by the newcomer to the Craft that feels somewhat threatened or just wants protection in the new world they are entering. Either way, we all need quick and simple shielding spells and this is definitely that and I should add a good one also.

In the Craft, there are many forms of divination. You have Palm Reading, Tarot Card Readings, Rune Readings, Scrying and the list goes on and on. Since our Elemental Witch Series will be concluding today, we decided to delve right into divination. The first form of divination is Tea Leaf Reading, yes, you heard right, Tea Leaf Divination. Did you know after you get through drinking that tasty cup of tea that those little leaves at the bottom could hold a very special meaning for you? They can answer looming questions and predict your future? Imagine all of that for just the cost of a cup of tea, how could you go wrong?
In this episode:
History of Tea Leaf Reading
Brewing the Perfect Cup
Symbolism of those little leaves left in the bottom of your cup.
An Ink Wash Spell
The main purpose of this spell is to cancel out harm caused by another individual. The spell is to be casted by the person who was the original victim of the spellcasted.
Items you will need:
One black candle 6 to 8 inches long
One bottle of purple water based ink
One fountain pen
One sheet of office paper
One bowl of water
One small glass tumbler
The only chant that is in this spell is as follows:
“All that is valuable, I keep
All that is harmful, I discard.”
Welcome to a special edition of Tuesday’s Divination. As you know, we normally do not put out a Divination podcast during the weekdays but unfortunately instead of computer problems, we had people problems today. No one could get their act together. So Lady A bravely took the mic and went to the air. We offer to you our usual divination, runes, tarot, horoscope and much, much more. Lady A has some very interesting tidbits she adds to the mix and what we thought was going to be a horrible day turns into a very beautiful one. We hope you enjoy today’s edition along with Lady A tales and hints.
A traditional Vernal Equinox pastime: go to a field and randomly collect wildflowers.* Or, buy some from a florist, taking one or two of those that appeal to you. Then bring them home and divine their magical meanings by the use of books, your own intuition, a pendulum dulum or by other means. The flowers you’ve chosen reveal your inner thoughts and emotions.
It is important at this time of renewed life to plan a walk (or a ride) through gardens, a park, woodlands, forest and other green places. This is not simply exercise, and you should be on no other mission. It isn’t even just an appreciation of nature. Make your walk celebratory, a ritual for nature itself.
A Sample of just a little of the Ostara Lore that will be found in this episode. Also a very, simple but elegant Ostara ritual to feel our Mother Earth awakening within our very fingertips.
Part 2 of this Spell of the Day will include how to do the Circle of Stones and also the Blessing Chant that is included in this ritual. We hope you enjoy this very special ritual and lore by one of the day’s most prominent Pagan authors.

A few miles south of Navan, Co. Meath lies the Hill of Tara, the ancient capital of Ireland.
Unlike our modern conception of a capital city, however, Tara appears to have been a symbolic or ritual capital, rather than a large center of commerce, administration, and public life. Evidence of extensive dwelling space or large-scale defensive earthworks have not been found, suggesting its use was primarily ritualistic: it was where one went to be crowned, set down laws, or settle disputes.
For the rest of this article and to follow the rest that the author posted on the subject of the Hill of Tara please click on this link: http://atriptoireland.com/2013/06/26/a-brief-history-of-the-hill-of-tara/
