Never Again Day

When former president Tabaré Vázquez created the ‘Día del nunca más' (‘Never Again Day') in 2006, he envisaged it drawing a line under the "horror of the recent past to salve the open wounds left by the dictatorship". Five years on and it is a safe bet that the ‘Never Again Day' will in fact never be celebrated again....

Samjinnal


Samjinnal is the festive day that informs the arrival of spring. This day is known as the day the swallows came back from Gangnam and the day the snake came out from its winter sleep. It is also the day birds and butterflies start to appear. 

This day, in the North Gyeongsang region, seeing a snake signifies good luck, seeing a white butterfly means death that year, and seeing a yellow butterfly implies fortune. They say soybean paste brewed this day tastes especially good and houses are repaired...

You cut the sapflow of the incense-tree...

As Sin to Ur, as Shamash ...

Ancient Love Magick


Perhaps one of the most ill understood and belittled types of Everyday/Mundane Magic is exactly Love Magic, that is, the Magic one makes use of to attract Love, Sex and Emotions to one's life. I myself cannot understand why so many sneer at it. Frankly, I find the act of casting a spell and making Magic to attract one's Heart Desire and Soul Counterpart one of the most serious and divine acts of worshiping the gods in a human being. Just recall a time when you were deeply in love and you will remember how human it felt and yet so close to god(dess)head. It felt like this both ways too, because the keyword for eternity as far as love is concerned is reciprocation.

To be truly in love is an act of complementarity that transcends all dualities, it is the Pursuit of Pleasure, a joyous and willing surrender of selves in a Battle where both partners are winners, it is sharing, intimacy and play. Who teaches whom, it is impossible to say. Lover and Beloved become united in the Explosion of Senses, Tastes, Textures and Colors, in the Adventure of Lovemaking, physical and emotional to experience then the Divine manifest within and without themselves. Have you ever thought that the Universe is always making love to itself, ever changing, and that this is also called Evolution?

Therefore, as far as my experience goes, love and lovemaking ...

St Gobnatt

Gobnatt / Domna. The Irish saint, Gobnatt, is a version of the deity Domna, patroness of sacred stones and cairns,


Gobnait was born in County Clare in the 5th or 6th Century, and is said to have been the sister of Saint Abban. She fled a family feud, taking refuge at Inisheer in the Aran Islands. Here an angel appeared and told her that this was "not the place of her resurrection" and that she should look for a place where she would find nine white deer grazing....
Celtic lore held bees in high esteem believing the soul left the body as a bee or a butterfly. Gobnait added beekeeping to her life’s work developing a lifelong affinity with them. She started a religious order and dedicated her days to helping the sick, probably using honey as a healing aid....

February - Magickal History

Some say that the name of the month of February comes from the Roman goddess Februa, who was also known as Juno Februa. Others say that the name came from the god Februus, who was later identified with the Roman Pluto or Dis.


The month of February, truly a month of ice in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere, is a dormant time, when all activity and life appears to be low-key or below the surface movement. In both the Celtic and Roman cultures, it was a time of spiritual purification and initiation. The country of Tibet celebrated the conception of Buddha and the Feast of Flowers during this time of year.

February can be an ideal time for dedicating or re-dedicating oneself to whatever deity or deities one worships....

Compitalia

The Compitalia, a festival thought to be older than Rome itself, was held in mid January (January 12th) to honor the guardian spirits of local communities or neighborhoods. Sacrifices and offerings of honey cakes were made to the Lares Compitales at any place where two roads met.

In the countryside the ritual started at nightfall. Each family placed the statue of the underworld goddess Mania at the door of their house.They also made and hung woolen dolls representing men and women, along with strands of garlic and poppies...

Festival for Janus


A festival for Janus held on 11 January.
Janus must be propitiated on the Agonal day.
The day may take its name from the girded priest
At whose blow the God's sacrifice is felled:
Always, before he stains the naked blade with hot blood,
He asks if he should, Agatne? and won't unless commanded....

Carnation Magick

Ruler: Capricorn, Saturn
Type: Flower
Latin Name: Dianthus caryophyllus
Folk Names: Nelka, Gilliflower, Jove's Flower
Planet: Sun
Element: Fire
Magickal Form: Fresh, dried, essential oil
Basic Powers: Protection, Energy

Used to remove hexes and negative energy, the carnation is especially good for clearing out love problems. Brush flowers down your body to cleanse. After reaching the feet, break the stems to trap and hold the negative energy.


Once worn by witches to prevent untimely death on the scaffold, it is used in power incenses and placed on the altar to produce added energy. Dry nine red carnations in the Sun, crumble them and separate from the stems. Pour one dram carnation oil over them, mix well and smoulder on charcoal for a tremendously powerful incense. Produces tons of energy!


Add white and red carnations or essential oil to bathwater to stabilize your love life. This flower also helps relieve the depression of winter. Keep red carnations on the altar to increase your energy level and create more optimism in life.

Carnations are traditionally assigned to the month of January. For other astrological insights see The Sign of the Carnation.

The Seven Deities of Luck



In Japan, January 1st is the Shichi Fukujin, the Celebration of the Seven Deities of Luck.

Shichi Fukujin is usually translated as "Seven Spirits of Good Fortune," but literally means "Seven Happiness Beings." Six are male and one is female (Benten). Each is an important, powerful spirit. They hail from different traditions. Unlike the comparable Seven African Powers, they do not all derive from the same spiritual base. Some are Shinto, some Buddhist; Hotei originally derives from Chinese Taoist traditions, but wherever they came from, all are now significant to Japanese folk religion....

January - Magickal History


The word January comes from the Roman name for this month; it was named after the god Janus who had two faces. This deity ruled over beginnings and endings, the past and future. Since January is reckoned as the first month of a new year, this connection with the god Janus is appropriate. It is an excellent time to work on putting aside the old and outdated in one's personal life and making plans for new and better conditions.

The Chinese use this concept in celebrating their New Year, which occurs on the first day of the New Moon when the Sun is in Aquarius. They considered this celebration a time for settling debts, honoring ancestors, and having family reunions. They carry paper images of dragons through the streets and set off fireworks to chase away evil entities and misfortune....

Twelve Days of January Weather



Whatever the weather is like the first twelve days of January indicates what the weather will be like for the next twelve months. Each day equals one month in succession.

From Moon Magick

The Chant of the Year

The following is of archaic Celtic origin. On the surface it is a triple recital of the thirteen months of the lunar year. Each word, however, is the name of one of the sacred trees, which in turn each have deep philosophical and magickal implications. Additionally, the thirteen, taken in sequence, tell in rich detail the life of the Sacred King and the archaic Legend of the Goddess.



All Witches should know or be strongly encouraged to study and research the hidden meanings behind this, working from the material provided by the poet Robert Graves (The White Goddess) .

Very powerful when done as a group, this chant can be done by the solitary practitioner as well. Provided here are the instructions for a group ritual, which can then be adjusted to suit an individual practice....
