Free Candle Spells | Did You Know? –  Using Nature to Assist in Hoodoo Spells     Determining what to do with your spell and the effects it will have on the intended ‘victim’, depends on what the final results is that you are desiring. Here is a general idea on what you would like to occur when fashioning your charm or spell: If you want to keep something or someone close, bury your charm in your back yard. If you want to attract something to you, bury it under your front door step. If you want the influence to be destroyed, set fire to and burn it. If you want the situation to sink under the water or go away, throw it in moving water. If you want to keep negativity at a distance, throw it into the crossroads of two roads. If you want to fix the influence, put it in the center of a five-spot pattern (aka “quincunx”). If you want spirits to work with your jinx, bury it in a graveyard. If you want to keep secret where the spell came from, hide it in a crook of a tree. If you want your spell to work in secret, give it in someone’s food or drink. If you want to work by being stealthy, hide it in their clothing or on objects. If you want the influence to begin or strengthen, throw it to the East. If you want the influence to end or weaken, throw it to the West. If you want your spell’s effects to come and go like a tide, place it in a bay or where there is a tide....

Free Candle Spells | Did You Know? – January 2013

Free Candle Spells | Did You Know? – January 2013   * Did you know that the month of January is the first month of the Gregorian calendar but many calendars before this one would consider Spring as the time for the New Year. Old Viking calendars has two seasons – Winter and Summer. Winter was considered to be November through March with April through October being the Summer months. This would mimic the planting and birthing times for plants and animals, as most crops are picked before October and the connection with the Pagan Ostara ritual in Spring, when animals are their most friskiest, would make sense. * In some years, depending on the Lunar Calendar, the Chinese would celebrate the New Year. Today we have recognized that many Asian cultures use the Moon as a marker for the Lunar New Year, but the Lunar New Year will occur in February in 2013. Some notable Saints who celebrate their Feast day in January are: Jan. 6th – Epiphany of the Lord (aka 3 King’s Day) – on this day in Latin countries, a circular cake is served and slices are given to all in attendance. Tradition holds that the guest who receives the slice of the cake with the tiny figure of baby Jesus in it is to provide the next King’s cake the following year. Jan. 17th – St. Anthony Abad – Leaving home at an early age to live in the wilderness where he existed on pants and scrub herbs, he is associated with Osain in Lukumi. Jan. 21st – St Agnes – Virgin Martyr – She was but 12 years old when she dedicated her life to Holiness. Jan 31st – St. John Bosco – a modern Saint born in 1815, dedicated his life to organizing benevolent societies for first poor boys, which then branched out to needy girls as well. A friend in times of dire need. * January’s Full Moon Moon is called the Full Wolf Moon in Native American lore. The deep snow pack in January is the territory of the hungry wolf who howled in the distance as Indian families huddled in their tents. It is also sometimes referred to as the Old Moon or the Moon after Yule. This month’s Full Moon occurs on January 26, 2013....

Free Candle Spells | Did You Know? – December 2012

Free Candle Spells | Did You Know? – December 2012 * Did you know that the Mayan calendar is set to end on December 21, 2012? Notice I said calendar, not world? I am sure that you have heard the fervor surrounding this date and the rumor that it is the end of the world. Ironically, I have just come back from a trip to Central America and I toured two ancient Mayan temple sites and climbed one of the two pyramids. Our tour guide was very informative and has Mayan blood in his father’s side of his heritage. He is very proud of the accomplishments of the Mayans such as the development of the concept of Zero in mathematics. He pointed out to me the medias misrepresentation of the Mayan calendar, many times publishing the Aztec calendar mislabeled as Mayan.   The difference? The Aztec calendar has a man/demons face in the center with the tongue hanging out. The Mayan calendar is a man kneeling and hunched over with a large bag or pack on his back. 19 squares encircle him, indicating the nineteen “sets” of time or calendars in their beliefs. Our tour guide said that when we finish the 19th one on December 21, 2012, we will start over with the first one, completing a circle. No worries, he said. The world will go on. * Some of the Catholic Saints having Feasts Days in December are: * Saint Lucy, Martyr – December 13th – Patron Saint for those with Eye Afflictions For those who have issues with their eyesight, this Saint is best to receive honor and a candle from you on their feast day. Other things to surround their image or photos might be a few flowers and maybe a donation to a charity that helps those less fortunate to have good eye care and glasses. * Saints Adam and Eve – December 24th – the first Man and Woman This one was a surprise for me and I came across it in one of my well-worn Catholic booklets. * The Holy Innocents – December 28th – the first children killed by King Herod Matthew 2:1-18 tells this story: Herod was “greatly troubled” when astrologers from the east came asking the whereabouts of “the newborn king of the Jews,” whose star they had seen. They were told that the Jewish Scriptures named Bethlehem as the place where the Messiah would be born. Herod cunningly told them to report back to him so that he could also “do him homage.” They found Jesus, offered him their gifts and, warned by an angel, avoided Herod on their way home. Jesus escaped to Egypt. Herod became furious and ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years old and under.  * The Native Americans call the Full Moon in December the Full Cold Nights Moon (Full Cold Moon) as this is when the nights are long and cold. It is sometimes known as the Moon Before Yule. The Moon at this time creates a high arc when moving across the sky on December nights as the Moon is above the horizon for many long hours in the winter. * 2012 New Year’s Eve Banishing Negativity Burn – December 31st – a releasing ritual for those troubled by others This yearly event is a way for you to release any negativity that you have encountered this year and also to bind those who have relentlessly persecuted you in the workplace and in the neighborhood.
