The Power is in Your Hands

Candle Magick

Candle Magick is very satisfying to work with but where do you start? What do you need? Well lets look at the ingredients first.
  • 1 Tall Taper or Dinner Candle (of the appropriate colour)
  • Candle Holder
  • Matches
  • Essential oil or a blend you have prepared to annoint your candle
  • A sharp knife (boline)
  • A written list of the appropriate colours and or symbols to empower you
  • Your written spell verse to recite whilst you carve your symbols on to your candle.

Do your research first - what is your spell for?

The correct use of colours, symbols is important becasue they empower your spell or charm. You can use numerology, or rune, or zodiac symbols and any other symobl that represents your purpose.
If its romance you seek the colours would be pink, the number would be two, the Rune would be Gefu and you could decorate your alter with Rose Quartz crystals and pictures of happy couples. Rose or Jasmine oils will compliment your intention;.
For Passion the colour red is a must and the zodiac glyphs for Scorpio and Venus would be perfect for this purpose. Ylang Ylang or Patchouli essential oils will compliment your intention.

Cast your Circle

Cast your circle in your own preferred way and when you are ready, sit comfortably in front of your altar and begin to prepare your candle. Hold the candle in your hand and using the boline or knife begin to carve the symbols that you have chosen, starting at the top of your candle, and working around and downwards.
If you have prepared a verse, recite it while you carve, if not think deeply of your desire.
When you have carved your symbols, lay your candle on the altar and place a little of your prepared oil in the palm of your hands. Rub your hands together vigorously continuing to recite your verse and think of your purpose.
Place a little more oil on your hands and pick up your candle holding it in the centre begin to rub the oil from the centre to the top and then the centre to the bottom. Do this a couple of times and then once again rub your hands vigorously together, still holding the candle. This is how you empower the candle with energy.
Place your candle in its holder on the altar and light it. Recite your verse and meditate on your purpose. When you have finished, give thanks to the elements and any powers that have assisted you before closing your circle. 
You can light your candle daily until it has burned through completely remembering to snuff or pinch it out if you are leaving it unattended but I prefer not to blow it the flame as I believe it will weaken your spell.

This Weeks Recipe - All Bran Fruit Loaf

This is one of my old favourites - I hope you like it
10 fluid ounces milk
10 ounces mixed dried fruit
1 egg
 6 ounces sugar
4 ounces butter
 4 ounces all-bran
4 ounces self raising flour
Put fruit, butter, water and sugar and all bran in a saucepan and bring to the boil reducing it to a simmer immediately. Simmer slowly for 20 minutes then remove from the heat and set it to one side until it has cooled. Ideally if you have the time to spare do this the night before you are going to bake it. When the mixture has cooled, loosely whisk the egg in a cup or bowl and at that to the pot along with the flour.
Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper then pour your mixture into the tin and bake in a preheated oven for about one and a half hours at a medium to low setting, roughly 180 degrees.
Your cake should rise well and perhaps split across the top but that’s fine. To test if it is cooked through use a skewer and pierce through the cake. It should come out clean and dry. If it’s gooey, leave it and test again in ten minutes.
When it’s ready remove it from the oven and let it sit until it’s cool before removing it from the baking tin. If you are like me, you will bake three or four at a time and once they are cool you can keep one out for tea and freeze the others.
Substitute some of the fruit for an equal amount of nuts or sprinkle glace cherries and walnut over the top of the loaf for special occasions such as Yule
Substitute the milk with fresh orange juice for a different slant on your loaf or ice the top of your chosen cake for a touch of luxury
Home baking makes a lovely gift; wrap your cooled loaf in greaseproof paper, cover it with cellophane and add a ribbon and take it with you when visiting.

Your Horoscope
19th May 2019


 On the home front and romantically you will have things to look forward to but by the 23rd the Moon enters your 6th house (Career) and you will have to work harder or longer however what you do now will pay off. Put your head down and get on with it to have lasting results.


A little financial boost will come in handy and help to ease your mind, perhaps coming just in time for something unexpected. At the same time you can expect Pluto’s influence to stir up some changes.


You may find that you are doing some soul searching at some point this month and this is likely to result in the desire for self-improvement or for studying profound subjects. Other influences will do their best to disrupt your mood causing you to become irritable.


For you Cancer the Moon is in an ideal position to bring about various pleasant and beneficial changes into your life. Rewards can be expected if you allow your mind or energy to respond to unusual vibrations.


Wow Leo, the Moon and Sun in perfect placement in your chart make this an extremely favourable period bringing happiness and well-being into your life especially if you are involved in new enterprises. Your health will be good, and your mood hopeful.


It’s all about being creative for you Virgo due to the position of Uranus and Mercury in your chart. This will be an important period in your life and you will have intuitive and intellectual insight making you more astute, and inventive.


Try to reign in your passions at least until the Tuesday and think two or three times before you make any financial decisions. Between the 20th and the 23rd Neptune will stimulate your instincts so pay attention to what you feel rather than what you think.


For you Scorpio this will be a good period however you may find that others are looking for your support. New friendships can be made under this influence and overall you can expect some added financial benefits.


You can breathe a sigh of relief as Saturn leaves your chart, and then in comes Jupiter to improve your mood. This is a time of prosperity and a good time to begin new projects. Make the most of this period by making the most of yourself.


Things are heating up in your chart Capricorn and you will feel as though you have a lot more to do than you had anticipated. The influence of the Moon will touch you emotionally and make you more expressive or impulsive.


You will be blessed with a peaceful frame of mind during this period and that will allow you to see and do what’s right in almost any situation however as far as romance goes, whilst you may be attracted to someone of the opposite sex, avoid saying too much too soon.


The placing of Venus in your chart Pisces is perfect for social and family affairs, for making new friends and for anything that allows you to enjoy your time. You can expect this to be a lovely period.


Good fortune continues to bless you Gemini and you can expect this to continue for a while yet. New pursuits may interest you and domestic and household matters will be peaceful. As Saturn approaches you will experience some restrictions.

I'm leaving the morning Ritual here for new members and as a reminder that if you remember the Goddess in your life She will remember you.
The Morning Ritual
Stand in front of a window and take a deep purifying in breath and visualise that you are breathing in sparkling light energy. Raise your hands high above your head and then clasp your hands together in the prayer position. Draw your hands down in front of your face, still clasped, down past your heart and then separate your hands and spread them as far apart as you can to each side. Visualise all your chakra points being activated and say the following prayer as you do so.
You who are the source of all power and good
Please show me what I need to know when I need to know it
Help me to listen with understanding and speak with wisdom
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
And the wisdom to change the things  I can change.
Please show me what I need to know so that I may understand.
The world is an abundant place and
I am grateful for those gifts I have already been given
And I am open and ready to receive
those gifts that are waiting to come to me
Visualise a purple cloak of protection being placed on your shoulders and draw your hands across your chest as though you are drawing the cloak over you.
You are now ready to begin your day and you can use this ritual at any time especially if you feel insecure anxious or worried.
