A word from Momma Witch

Litha - The Summer Solstice, Midsummer

Date: June 21 (there about) perform your ritual after 3 pm on the 21st as the moon is Void off Course until then
This is the longest day of the year and The God is at his peak of strength making his a good time to perform rituals for abundance, fertility, virility, beauty, and the bounty of our earth. Light a bonfire after the Sun sets if you can, and if you can't place a candle in your cauldron (or a receptacle that you can use as a cauldron). Remember to show gratitude for the blessings that we have already been given.
At this special time the Goddess is pregnant with the new God who will be born at Yule so decorate your altar with the colours White and Pale Yellow and flowers such as St. John's Wort, birch leaves and white Lilly's. Use symbols which indicate the masculine and feminine aspects of the God and Goddess such as, your athame to represent the God, and the Cauldron which represents the Goddess.

Mel's Weekly Challenge
This week I started my training to volunteer with the Citizens Advice Bureau. I have to say – so far so good and they really do invest well in their volunteers and the training is so very well structured. I sat there all day with a massive smile on my face and it was all I could do to contain my excitement and anticipation for the rest of it.
I know this isn’t going to be a walk in the park and there will be some things I will come across that will be absolutely horrible, but I bless the Goddess for this door that has opened! What occurred to me was, that after my job had ended even though it was for the best, I still felt horrible. I still felt a part of me was on the scrap heap, and as I mentioned last week – I was holding raving pity parties with me, myself and I.
That didn’t change until the moment I decided to explore what was next. There were things I fancied looking at and having a go at. Some doors that were pushed remained closed, but things did not start to change until the moment I decided to do something about it and acted upon that!
You see, it’s all very well praying to the Goddess, the Universe, or whichever deity/ies you follow for help, but sometimes we have to be the answer to our own prayers. Sometimes the Goddess WANTS us to get our finger our of our proverbial and actually be the change we want to see in our lives. We have to actually get up and DO something.
So this week, when you’re thinking about what you want and asking the Universe for help – which is absolutely well and good – and help will come – just to think about the actions that can begin the changes you want – and see how quickly things begin to happen. With love, light and blessings,  Mel

Your Weekly Horoscope from Soraya
 16-22nd June 2019


This is not a good period Aries and you need to be on your guard while the Moon is in opposition with Neptune. At times like these there is a real risk of being duped and while nothing at all may happen, anything that happens is likely to be unpleasant.


Romance and passions should be in the air for you Taurus if Venus and Mars have their way. (No surprise there considering that you are a very sensual sign) Anyway relationships will be highlighted at this time.


Sometimes, for no apparent reason, someone just turns on you and you will be unable to figure out why. Leave things alone rather than trying to get to the bottom of a mystery, you are probably better off without them.


The Moon and Mars in your chart this week will certainly liven things up so if you had lovely plans for “Me Time”, forget it as destiny has other ideas. Just go with the flow and you may enjoy new developments.


While Mercury and Saturn are in your chart Leo you are likely to find that you are more conscientious of your duties and your actions. This is a positive influence and you will benefit from it.


For you Virgo, this would be a good time to begin an exercise programme or even just change your diet. Perhaps top up on minerals and vitamins and get more exercise and fresh air.


Things are beginning to heat up now while the Moon and Mars pass through your chart. Your energy and determination will be high but try to avoid going to extremes. Focus on your ambitions, hopes and dreams.


Someone of the opposite sex may attract your attention however this is not necessarily a good thing so hold back and let time be your guide. Current influences will allow you to raise your consciousness to a higher level.


There won’t be very much happening at the beginning of the week but by the 22nd the Moon enters your 6th house (career and wellbeing) and this may give you something to ponder then Neptune arrives to make things even more curious.


This lovely period will continue for you (and me) Capricorn and in fact it will last at least until the 4th of July. Romance looks good and financial matters will continue to improve so make the most of this very favorable aspect.


Expect a very slow start to the week Aquarius; current influences are restrictive as far as your thoughts and feelings are concerned and so the message is clear do little other than developing your knowledge of things that you are interested in.


You can expect to hear something that will offer you some hope of advancement, either professionally, or socially. Opportunities to improve your life or life style or your surroundings and environment are indicated.
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.
