Celestial Watercolor
Learn to Paint the Zodiac Constellations and Seasonal Night Skies
Written by Elise Mahan with D.R. McElroy

The Quarto Group

“Celestial
Watercolor: Learn to Paint the Zodiac Constellations and Seasonal
Night Skies” is a book that does dual duty. On one hand, it’s as
a beautifully illustrated and produced full-color coffee table-style
book which is immensely enjoyable to flip through whether you read it
or not. On the other, it’s a genuinely useful guide through the
world of classic watercolor technique, with watercolor illustrations
of the phases of the moon, astrological signs, and the seasonal night
skies as examples. These examples come paired with corresponding
texts that delve into some basic magical associations.

In
the first part of the book, Mahan and McElroy lay out all the tools
necessary to get the reader started with watercolors: papers, paints,
brushes, pens, and pencils, with some basic recommendations of their
favorite brands. They briefly discuss the techniques and effects used
in the book, such as wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry watercolor; while
these descriptions are not very detailed, they are more than enough
to get an artist through the examples used in this book.

In
the second part of the book, the authors walk the reader through the
traditional Western zodiac, the phases of the moon and names of each
month’s moon in different cultural traditions (which makes a really
lovely addition, as many authors choose only one version of these
names and omit the rest, but it’s enlightening to see several in
one place), and seasonal landscapes and palettes to ground the
celestial watercolors to the earth in full-color illustrations. Each
of these sections is accompanied by a walkthrough of the process used
to create the watercolors depicted, and an array of inspiring images
for each sign, moon, or season. They are also peppered with
descriptive lore and tradition about each topic. 

The goal of “Celestial Watercolor” is very focused, and the book accomplishes it well: there is a lot of inspiration, information, and technique here. While the lore is illustrative in its own way and adds greatly to the book, there isn’t enough astrological, lunar, or seasonal information for this book to be used as a thorough guide for a serious astrologer or magicians, but it really isn’t the point of the book, either. Instead, “Celestial Watercolor” gives a solid foundation for basic astrological information and a type of art that many witches would probably love to add to their journals, Books of Shadows, wall art, and more, with Mahan’s beautiful illustrations shining through for inspiration.

Book Review
Moon Power
lunar rituals for connecting with your inner goddess
by Simone Butler
Published by Quarto Publishing Group
Pages: 208

Where
the Moon appears in your birth
chart
*
determines your emotional nature. Your moon sign indicates what makes
you feel secure and what wisdom you’ve accumulated during past
lives.

In “Moon Power: lunar rituals for connecting with your inner goddess,” Simone Butler provides information about the moon in each astrological sign.

“Identifying
and honoring your lunar nature helps you feel comfortable in your
skin,” she states in the book where she helps women connect with
their primal, feminine, moon power.

My
moon is in Scorpio and I devoured the 14 pages allotted to it. While
there were some characteristics I do not believe I have (possessive
and wealth-driven, but some who know me might disagree), the majority
of the information was exactly right. I am intense, being in control
makes me feel secure, I have undying passion and letting go is
difficult for me.

For
each moon sign are 14 pages providing such information as your lunar
superpower, lunar shadow, sexual and karmic path. There is a page
about Scorpio moon woman with a list of qualities, and roughly half a
page dedicated to a “Modern Scorpio Moon Goddess” – in my case,
Lady Gaga – and pages about an Ancient Scorpio Moon Goddess – for
me, Lilith. Included in the information about her are ways to connect
with her, her sacred animal and a suggestion for an altar to Lilith
and when to visit it.

Each
section also contains a new and a full moon ritual, things to do
while the moon is in that sign, and questions for reflection and
journaling.

Butler
is an astrologer who follows the Wiccan path of her Celtic ancestors,
but the activities, stories and rituals she presents are drawn from
many cultures and are guided by her inner knowing. Butler’s
intention is to help readers find more magic with the help of the
moon.

Chapter
1 talks about the power of the moon, whom she calls “our cosmic
mother,” and how to use it “to open our hearts and trust our
intuition” so that we shift our consciousness from our head to our
heart. It covers Luna as the soul mate for women, women’s link to
the moon through her menstruation cycle. The influences of eight
phases of the moon are explained: new moon, waxing crescent, first
quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter and
waning crescent.

“Your
feelings are the most reliable conduit to the intuitive right-brain
realm. To coax out your inner Goddess, start letting your true
feelings rise up and find expression,” Butler writes in Chapter 2,
then goes on to write about connecting to that inner Goddess.

Your
friends will want to borrow this book to learn more about themselves
by reading about their moon signs, but you might consider not letting
it go, because you may want to perform the rituals and try an
activity or two when the moon is in of the signs.

* At astroalchemy.com, readers can find their moon sign along with a multitude of other “ancient secrets for modern living” and astrological information by Simone Butler.

Paravision: Theory and Practice of Visual Clairvoyance

Author: Rodrigo Medeiros

Publisher: 6th books

First Published in 2018 but Text copyright 2016

If you are looking for a book that removes all Spirituality and Occult from Clairvoyance, this is your book. It reads a bit like a tech manual, as it has a new language for you to get used to. Words like: Thosene which is a combination of the words thought, sentiment, and energy, this is the basis for consciential manifestation. Or calling: Third Eye chakra the Frontochakra and the Heart Chakra is now Cardiochakra.

The central idea of the book that Mr. Merdeiros has written is to present a technical approach to clairvoyance, one that is neither mystical nor religious with the central goal of personal development (evolution). The author states that he developed clairvoyance and other forms of parapsychism through techniques, self-experimentation, and willpower. The author goes on to define clairvoyance as;

1. It is extra physical or beyond the physical dimension.

2. It is visual, and not auditory or tactile for instance.

3. It is a perception of the now, of the present, and not of the memory or premonition.

He further develops clairvoyance by dividing into two different types depending on the distance between the experimenter and the observed target: look clairvoyance is something in your immediate environment or traveling clairvoyance what was always called before “remote viewing”.

The author states in this book that prayer, mantras and rituals are also not necessary for extra physical vision. And, considering the long-term benefits we are seeking, those practices are not desired nor indicated despite its occasional efficiency as those do not help to increase self-confidence, self-radiance, and tend to perpetuate a cycle of restrictive indoctrination that prevents achieving a higher lucidity.

I have been in classes that taught Aura reading and used many of the same techniques that Mr. Merdeiros uses in this book to turn on and develop the ability to see the extraphysical body. He states that by developing our parapsychic ability that we will be able contact conscex (consc from consciousness and ex from extraphysical) energy of someone that doesn’t have a physical body, because they are either dead or they are at a period between lives.

It is an interesting book with exercises that will expand your ability to see that which is there, just unseen with our normal vision. So I will suggest getting it, and working with the teachings in this book.

In his latest book, Michael H. Hughes brings together activism and magic as tools for the resistance.

What I’ve discovered doing research for this book is witchcraft, in particular magic, has always been the tool of oppressed people. When you are out of other means of getting something done, you still do what you have to do, and in many cases that involves magic,” he said.

Enslaved Africans used hoodoo and root work. Voodoo was instrumental in the uprising against Haiti’s white class. In medieval Europe, there were poppets and wax figures used against royalty.

The more you dig into the history of magic used as a tool against oppression, the more emerges. There’s even a book that just came out serendipitously for my research, I must say, called ‘Magic as a Political Crime in Medieval and Early Modern England: A History of Sorcery and Treason (International Library of Historical Studies).’ about how magic was used against the ruling class or how the ruling class sometimes used it to persecute people, to accuse them falsely as in the witch persecutions,” Hughes said.

In the introduction to his book that is due coming out September 8, in advance of the midterm elections, he states, “We are living in a time of great turmoil at the edge of history. A time in which liberal, democratic values and ideas that have withstood wars and despots are under attack by rising tides of nationalism and racial supremacy; in which the industrial model of our society is crumbling, and with it the patriarchal, hierarchical structure that has kept it in place. An era in which our very existence as a species is imperiled by a warming planet, overpopulation, and our unquenchable desire for material goods.”

For those who don’t wish to give up and are willing to advocate for change, this book can serve as a toolkit to manifest equality and peace. It contains spells, rituals and historical examples to help readers put their magic to work to make the world a better place.

Magic, Hughes explained, is “innate in us. It wants to express itself.”

What Hughes found when he stripped away erroneous history and dogma were folk traditions and indigenous traditions he considers the roots of magic – the basic techniques that are universal. Those include sympathetic magic and elemental associations. For instance, he noted, traditions all over the world consider fire a creator and a destroyer. Everywhere people work with the four directions. Magic words, chants, song and dance are used in every culture.

I was just working on a chapter on talisman and amulets. I was looking into how they evolved and where they came from. It’s so fascinating to think that Africans from the Congo are brought to this continent and they meet Native Americans who were using medicine pouches that there’s no difference between the Congolese bags that they wore around their necks, even to the same natural items that they would have in their bags,” he said in early March as he was putting in long hours to get the finished manuscript to his publisher.

Ancient Egyptians wrote on papyrus they rolled up and put in a little tube that they wore around their necks. Observant adult Jews put on tefillin, small black leather boxes holding parchment inscribed with verses from the Torah. Catholics are given the scapular to wear.

So even if a lot of these don’t come from the same roots, they’re universal. For me, it seems to argue for the fact it works. It’s effective magic. When you carry around items symbolic, important, protective or powerful on your body, then, for whatever reason, as humans we like to do that. So if you don’t believe in magic, then you have to assume it’s somehow part of our psychological makeup or something like that. But if you believe in magic like I do, then the ubiquity of all these kinds of traditions seem to indicate that it probably works; that’s why people do it.”

When people think of magic they think of spells, and when they think of spells, they think of witches. But magic does not belong to one group or one culture. It underlies all spiritual traditions and systems. In it’s most basic sense, Hughes defines magic as the use of directed consciousness to effect change in the world.

What I’m trying to do with this book is be clear this is just magic. It’s not witchcraft, it’s not traditional witchcraft, it’s not Druidry, it’s not indigenous tradition, it’s not chaos magic, it’s not post-modern magic, it’s just magic. And as such, I try to create these rituals so that they can be plug and play, which is what I think the success of the Trump binding spell,” he said.

The Spell to Bind Donald Trump and All Those Who Abet Him led to this book.

Originally I was going to write a book on magic, theoretical and practical magic before this Trump spell took off and had a life of its own and dragged me along with it,” Hughes said.

At the time he crafted the binding spell used for the first time February 24, 2017 , Hughes said, “I really thought, ‘This is just going to be some small thing that I publish [on Medium] and a few people, maybe the pagan community, they’ll argue about it,’ which they did. But wow, it really just blew up beyond anything I could have imagined. The whole thing has been a really surreal experience.”

Within days, it went viral.

A couple of stories that blow my mind,” he said. “One is I was going to do the ritual. I had about 30 or 40 people who were going to gather to do it and the night of it I went to pick up some wine and beer for afterward and I walk into some random liquor store in Baltimore and the woman, probably in her 20s, said, ‘Do you want your receipt?’ I said, ‘Yeah, yeah I’m hoping to write this off. I’m cursing Donald Trump tonight.’ And without batting an eye she said, “Oh, do you have the unflattering photo?” I just stared at her. She said, ‘Me and my friends are doing it later tonight.’

I was dumbfounded. I knew it was circulating pretty wildly. The entire week after I published it, I was on the phone all day. People calling, reporters emailing. I did so many interviews it was ridiculous. As the ritual got closer, I realized how big it was getting, I started getting calls from TV reporters [wanting to film the ritual]. I didn’t want reporters, especially at the first time. You never know how they’re going to portray it. I didn’t want it to be really intrusive … but they were so insistent on filming it, I said, ‘Oh, I hear there are going to be people at Trump Tower doing it.’ I just made that up.’”

When the film crews showed up at Trump Tower in New York City, there were 20 witches outside. More were in front of his tower in Chicago.

It happened and I had no idea. I really just pulled that out of thin air thinking, ‘Well, maybe there’ll be some people there doing it’ and sure enough they showed up and did the ritual.”

The witches weren’t the only ones. Thousands upon thousands of occultists and magicians took part. Even Christians and Buddhists – many tweaking it to use their way in their tradition – performed the ritual. Many had never never performed a ritual in their lives. It became the largest and longest continuing magical working in history.

Did it work? Well, Trump’s initial travel ban was rescinded, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act was halted, Robert Mueller’s noose has tightened and no wall is being built. However, the tax bill passing, the threat of war and the assault on the environment show there is still much work to be done. Each month, members of the magic resistance continue to perform the ritual. Hughes also offered a daily version as well.

I realized that the fundamental Christians were going to freak out, even Evangelicals, but I was really surprised at some of the vehemence from the pagan community. I guess I should have known better, but I was still a little surprised by the number of witches who said it was awful and I was destroying the reputation of witchcraft. First of all, I’m not a witch. I don’t identify as a witch. But obviously this became witches versus Trump and no matter how many times I … [said] ‘This is magic. I’m a magician, I’m not a witch.’ It just went right over their heads.”

The magic resistance that galvanized around the binding spell is committed to using spells, rituals, prayer, divination and other techniques to resist or impede dangerous or oppressive political movements, politicians, and actions. This, Hughes states in the introduction to his book, includes “authoritarianism, white supremacy, racism, misogyny, xenophobia, environmental destruction, attacks on marginalized populations, as well as other harmful ideologies. It can be viewed as a magical form of self-defense, or defense of others. But it is not just about resistance. This movement also uses magical practices to promote progressive, inclusive, liberating, and empowering political, environmental, economic, and social causes.”

The book gives readers ideas for altars, meditations, community organizing, self care and more. and provides spells for racial justice, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, environmentalism, immigration, refugee support and nonviolence.

The magic in this book can be broadly adapted to many traditions, and is meant to serve as a foundation for experimentation and incorporation into other progressive and inclusive causes,” he said.

One of the spells Hughes offers is “Hands Off Laws Off: Hecate Invocation” to protect women’s reproductive rights, women’s health clinics and their staff. Meant to only be done at night, its components include a red candle, bay leaves, myrrh, a representation of the lawmaker or organization, a call to Hecate, and a chant ending with “Hands off/Laws off.”

His “Healing the Earth (Microcosm Ritual)” uses a pot of earth, a green candle, stones or crystals, feathers, an edible herb plant, a small representation of an animal, a prayer, and optional tarot cards of the moon and the sun. It has people caring for a plant as a representation of caring for the entire earth – and the magic can he “hidden in plain sight.”

The “thoughts and prayers” offered by politicians inspired a spell called, “We Shall Form a Circle to Protect Our Children” that uses a white candle and a piece of rose quartz.

These, like the others, are based on standard magical elements, directional attunement, ancestor communications, calls to a spirit, astrological influences. They are not part of any one particular tradition and can be modified to align with anyone’s practice.

I always felt like the world was a magical place,” Hughes said. “My thinking has always been sort of magical, even before I understood the magic in theory, as a kid, I would draw something to manifest it or just little sort of ritualistic things I would do in my life even before I knew that was practical magic. It was actually in my early 20s when I really started immersing myself in reading magic and occultism.”

You don’t have to understand how magic works or even believe in magic for the social justice spells Hughes provides to work, as long as they are done sincerely, with full commitment and energy. After all, people who play lucky lottery numbers, pray for healing, throw a coin into a well or leave flowers at the grave of a loved one are all practicing magic.

As the introduction on the yet-to-be-published book states, “If you’ve ever felt disillusioned or burned out because of the slow progress of social change, this magical work can nurture and support you, sharpening your focus and resolve for a more sustained, long-term activism.”

Bright Blessings, film lovers!

This month, I decided to review another classic film- Steel Magnolias.

Some have not seen it, as it’s set in the 1980’s in Louisiana. The film is all about motherhood, the cycle of life, death, and birth, and the power of women to support one another no matter what. I have never met anybody who did not bawl like a baby while watching this film, and it is one of the finest films ever made.

It’s filled with big hair, snark, shade, charm, love, and laughs. You will fall in love with the Steel Magnolias- delicate like a flower, and as strong as steel!

Here is the link to a trailer you can watch:

The story follows the lives of lady friends who gather at the local beauty salon, ran by Truvy, played by the divine Dolly Parton. While it appears to be the story of Shelby, played by Julia Roberts, it turns out, it’s more about her mother, M’Lynn, played by Sally Field. She is the main representation of motherhood in this film, and she plays a mother who raises her daughter Shelby, helping with Shelby’s health issues, even after Shelby marries, moves out, and has a child of her own. Unfortunately, Shelby’s body could not handle the pregnancy, and she eventually dies even after exhaustive efforts to save her. M’Lynn even gives Shelby one of her own kidneys.

What is the mother goddess if not life giving? Whose body do we live upon, and it is the fruit of whose body that feeds us? Whose waters quench our thirst, and to whose body do we return when we die? Who takes care of our children after we are no longer alive to do so, continuing to nourish them?

The great mother goddess! M’Lynn is the perfect embodiment of the lifegiving, healing aspect of the great mother.

Truvy, too represents that. She has her own issues, as her husband is struggling with a case of the blahs after being unemployed. She never gives up on him even when he holes up at the house, and won’t go anyplace. Her son, too has teenage attitude issues, and she still loves him in his rebelliousness. It turns out, her devotion to them was not misplaced, and her believing in them shows by the end of the film, the men in Truvy’s life are men who make life better for everybody. They just needed the understanding and support while dealing with their problems. Thanks to Truvy, they came out if their struggles whole, and better than ever.

The eternal compassion and understanding of the great mother carries us. Truvy embodies this.

She further gives a second chance to the heartbroken Annelle, played by Darryl Hannah. Annelle is abandoned by her good-for-nothing husband who is on the lam from the law, and when she can’t rub two nickels together, Truvy gives her a job, and a chance at a new life. Her whole life seemed over before being taken in by Truvy, but like a phoenix rising from the ashes, everything begins again for Annelle, and she absolutely thrives.

Sometimes, the goddess takes a bad situation from us we have been holding onto, because we believe it is all we have. Once stripped of everything, we are given so much more than we ever imagined.

The comic duo of the film, Miss Clary and Miss Ouiser, played by Olympia Dukakis, and Shirley MacLaine bring the snark and shade, and keep everybody in stitches. The oldest ladies in the group, they are bound by adoptive sisterhood, and both jokingly verbally attack one another.

Initially, Ouiser is a miserable old hag who bitches constantly, and looks worse than she acts. Shelby plays matchmaker a second time in the film, this time bringing Ouiser back together with an old beau. Reluctant to give up her independence, Ouiser first INSISTS they are just friends, which is pure hogwash. Soonafter, Ousier becomes kinder, gentler, and significantly less irritable, and all because she is HAPPY. Clary remarks at one point, “Ouiser! You are in a good mood! Did you run over a small child on your way here?”

She was absent minded, careless, accident prone, and a pain to be around at times. She stressed over every little thing, and complained constantly. None of the ladies disowned Ouiser when she was at her worst. Truthfully, her worst was not THAT bad, but she WAS difficult to deal with.

The goddess in her wrathful form is only such for reason. She has a benevolent aspect as well, Ouiser shows both sides.

Like the goddesses destructive side can clear the way for the good to come, Ouiser’s dark irritability causes her to snap at Annelle and drag the truth of her situation out of her. Had Annelle not spilled the facts, the ladies would not have known to immediately band together to lift up Annelle in her struggles. Ouiser also shows the fact the goddess needs the love and companionship of others to be her best self. Her friends as well as her new beau embrace her eccentricities, and while they joke with her about it, reminding her she’s got that mean streak she needs to keep in check, they give her the love and support she needs to be her best so she can love and support others as well.

Clary is a rich older lady, and uses it to put herself in positions to benefit her community. She is a testament to the goddesses generosity, and like the goddess smiles upon her children, so did Clary.

There’s not things in the way of mysticism or lore in the film, but the magic of women channeling their inner goddesses to make their lives and the lives of their loved ones wonderful is the lesson this film has for us.

This film deals with the joys of new life through children, the pain of loss when they die, and the new hope new life brings.

Don’t take my word for how amazing this film is. See it for yourself.

Note- I am also aware there was a 2012 remake of it, and I think I have to nab a copy of that as well. It got multiple awards and got rave reviews!

Happy film viewing.

Blessed Be!

Moon Dancer

Enhance Your Senses”

Moon Dancer offers a variety of Subscription Boxes ranging from soaps, oils, candles, and incense. This month we will be unboxing their Scents for Cents Box, which is a recurring monthly subscription box of handmade incense picked monthly for you and includes an incense holder. The price of this box ranges from $10 for a one month subscription to $100 for a year.

As soon as the Moon Dancer box arrived I could smell the beautiful, strong aromas permeating through the box.

Opening the box, I was surprised by the sheer amount of incense in the box. I was not expecting this many. The box is stuffed to full of packages upon packages of lovely smelling sticks. Then, when you take them out, you find a burner to go along with them, to make it easy to use them.

My Subscription Box contained 10 sticks each, of the following scents:

Hibiscus

Rain Musk

Butterfly Garden

Dragonfly

Wild Honey

Sweet Rain

Firefly

Summer Solstice

Wisteria

Lilac

Storm Clouds

Sun Shower

Water

Flower Fairy

Rain

That is a ton of incense! You can tell they are all fresh! I liked the smell of most of them. Maybe one or two weren’t my favorites. The only one I can remember that I found not too pleasing was Water.

I found when burning the incense that for the first few seconds they burn black and ash flies around. The ash was not lit. So there was no fire danger. Just a small bit of soot. It was not too much, and over quickly.

The incense holder is a common, wooden one. It is pretty with a moon & stars on it. Very practical. Nice on any altar.

As described by the owner of Moon Dancer:

The incense is ground up, rolled and scented by me.

It is made from non-endangered, sustainable wood. The wood was also chosen because it burns very slowly and has very little smell of it’s own.

Each stick will burn for an hour. Of course, if it is burning on a windowsill of an open window or under a fan it will cut down the burn time.

The sticks are saturated in scent, so they are strong, and the scent lasts on the stick for longer than it does on incense that is dipped. If you keep it in the zip-lock bag it comes in it will last at least 2 years.

There is no charcoal or alcohol used ever! So you will never hae a burnt after smell.

All the incense is scented with my own blends. It can be made in any of my 600 blends featured on my website www.mdancer.com.

For cratejoy each month in the Scent for Cents Box, customers receive 15 different scents. There are 10 sticks of each scent. The cost is just $10 a month. The scents are based on the month, flowers that are blooming, holidays, or events.

I guarantee to not repeat a scent in a year.

The first crate will include a plain wooden ash catcher. Each box after that will include a free gift of a burner.

Each month the incense is made fresh for the crates.”

I think Moon Dancer Scent for Cents Box is a great investment. The price is so right starting at only $10 a month, and you get so much for your money. The quality of the incense is superb. You even get a burner to go with your incense. This box is great for any witch’s arsenal! I recommend it!
