Wolf Moon

Tonight is the night of the Wolf Moon. This first full moon of the new year is a time of silence and sitting by the home fire. As the wild winter howls, appreciate the warmth of home and family.

Need Money?

Need, need, need;
Money, money, money!
Me, me, me;
Money, money, money!
Now, now, now;
Money, money, money!
Need, need, need;
Money, money, money!
Me, me, me;
Money, money, money!
Now, now, now;
Money, money, money!
Bring the money to fill the need;
Yes, bring the money to fill the need.
Now my power has done the deed.

Instructions:
Find a quiet place, light a candle or two, and some incense. Sit for a moment and think hard about the exact amount of money you need. See the money. See yourself holding it; counting it. Imagine not that it will come, but that it has come that you now have it. With this in mind, start the chant.

NOTES:
Try to think of the words, of what you say, as you chant them. Get the rhythm so that it is automatic. It is the rhythm that draws out your power and sends it on its way. Sit, stand, or kneel; whichever is most comfortable. You can even dance around in a circle. Anything you feel will help draw on your desire and send it pounding through the air to its goal can, and should be used.

Whatever your financial need, you can meet it. Remember, though, that you are only to seek what you need.... if you want money just for the sake of having it, it is unlikely to work.

It is preferable that this chant be done on a Wednesday, but don't let that deter you from using it any time you have a need. Suggested incense is a mixture of Pepperwort, Saffron, and Nutmeg, however any incense for success and prosperity will be fine. Spells for increase are best done during the waxing moon.

A Pile of Money

Lika a flash of lightning bright,
Stabbing suddenly down to earth;
Let the money that I need
Come to me, yes, give it birth!
Money, money - silver, gold;
Pouring, rushing, piling high,
All I want to meet my needs
Will come to me, yes, by and by.

Instructions:
Find a quiet place, light a candle or two, and some incense. Sit for a moment and think hard about the exact amount of money you need. See the money. See yourself holding it; counting it. Imagine not that it will come, but that it has come that you now have it. With this in mind, start the chant.

A River of Money

Stream into river.
River into sea;
Let the rivers of money
Flow straight through to me.
Swift is the current
And fast is the flow;
So let all my coffers
With gold overflow!


Instructions:

Money From Nowhere

Out of the nowhere,
Out of the air;
Out of the darkness
To aid me, I swear.
Pile upon pile
Of silver, of gold;
Come without warning
As you have been told!

Instructions:

At The Crossroads


Crossroads are considered sacred in almost all magical traditions. A crossroads is a universally accepted place to hold rituals, leave offerings, or dispose of items you wish to be rid of.

It is believed that Hecate rules over the three-way crossroads. She can see the past, present, and future. It is said that if you should approach a three-way crossroads at night, you would hear her black dogs howling. Her altars have been erected at such places for centuries.

The four-way crossroads are considered to be powerful because all four directions meet at one point. Dirt, rocks, and sticks gathered from such a crossroads are said to have powerful spiritual connections, albeit tricky ones to master. In Greek myths, Oedipus met his fate at the crossroads. From the Yoruban people we have Legba (a god known for his clever tricks) ruling the crossroads.

The strength of Ellegua lies at the crossroad. He is the remover of obstacles. An offering of twenty-one pennies and three candies left at the crossroad will prompt him to be kind and remove the roadblocks in your life.

Ancient people were afraid of what it meant when one direction met another direction. All manner of folklore is available concerning the crossroads. Fairies are said to hang out there, along with gouls, ghosts, and goblins. Even the Christian Satan is said to roam the crossroads.

Times Square in New York City is known as the "Crossroads of the World." A true urban crossroads is any intersection where 3 or 4 roads mead and then continue outward unobstructed for eight city blocks in each direction. If any one path is blocked by a dead end, a cul de sac, or a park, it is not a true crossroad.

Metaphysically, a crossroads is a place of sacred transformations, a metaphor for transformational points in our lives, and relate to time and choices.  It is a place to go to unblock your path.

It's Distaff's Day

It's Distaff's Day (Jan 7) and time to get back to work after the holidays. (According to Old English tradition, that is.) From Chambers Book of Days, we have this explanation:

As the first free day after the twelve by which Christmas was formerly celebrated, the 7th of January was a notable one among our ancestors. They jocularly called it St. Distaff's Dag, or Rock Dag, because by women the rock or distaff was then resumed, or proposed to be so....

Activate Your Money Magic

You'll need the following:
  • A decorative bowl
  • 5 small red candles - tealights make an excellent choice
  • Cinnamin Stick - for prosperity

The change represents your "seed" money. Whatever you have in your pocket, or in the bottom of your purse will do just fine. Put the money, the cinnamon stick, one of the red votive candles in the bowl...

Other ways to use it include the following ...

Listening To Your Needs


This is something nice to do as a substitute for the New Years Resolutions we make and break every year.

Make a list of the real wants and needs that you have within you. Maybe you need to give yourself more time, or speak out about the desire for recognition of the person you really are... Only you know what you really want and need. Write it down.

Now...
