A Jupiter-Venus Good Fortune Spell (Free online) TODAY 12noon

TODAY on Thursday 11th February, the most beneficial planets Jupiter & Venus will be conjunct!! This is happening on a new moon day!! That’s a stellar opportunity for planetary magic that must not be missed!!!

So we’re setting this FREE online event at a special time at 12noon.. to go through step-by-step, and do this magic together!

The actual conjunction occurs at 3pm UK time.. so by teaching and going through it at 12pm, you’ll be attuning to it and `capturing’ the energies of this most auspicious joining of 2 planets.. !

I’ve been doing astrology & planetary magic for many decades.. and will be teaching & guiding you through this step by step.. This spell does not exist. It’s been created by me just for this occasion, adapted from my own private workings. Normally I keep this to myself, but as a Sagittarian ruled by Jupiter, I’ve been propelled by intuition to lead this today (hence the short notice). The world is very much in limbo with many intense difficulties.. There has never been a need for positivity more so than now.. to give people Hope, inspiration, and motivation.. to lift spirits and lives up!

Enough about all that.. If you are any it into astrology and planetary magic, you’ll want to do this with me. Even if you can’t get all the tools and ingredients together quickly (I’ve kept it so easy but keeping the essence intact).. at least join and observe… so you can learn a bit of planetary magic for Free (normally my courses have a fee around £20-30 for this sort of workshop/ course).

Preparations/ tools needed—–

1. A candle (for the spell) – At the most luxurious, you can use a large pillar candle, or a simple long dinner candle…or the very least, a tea-light candle. What colour? That’s up to you.. white is better. But red is better.. Blue or purple are good too. But don’t worry.. just have a new candle ready. [Real witches & magicians have to be able to do magic quickly with what they have. sometimes!].
— You’ll need a candle holder too to place this candle (if it’s tea-light or pillar candle it will stand on its own.
–lighter/ matches (obviously).

2. A large White (A4) size blank paper (or card) & pen (any colour). This paper/ card is where you’ll be writing some key words to power up, and place the spell-candle. This paper/ card will then become a `sigil-talisman’ to keep. So try to find something that can last longer.

some sort of incense / sage for cleansing your working space – if you can manage something.

3. [optional]
Altar candle(s). If you already have some altar candles.. Have them lit when we start this work. Light/ fame are magical and clear space and create a positive environment to do this magical work.

4. [optional]
Sit and think about 5-10 key positive things you like in your life..
This is not a gratitude thing. This is a WISH spell. So think of the things you want, desire, need – to be fulfilled and have a happy life.
(examples; Financial wealth, friendships, love, relationship, Job, career, work, good health, freedom, passing exams, happiness, loved ones being healthy/ happy, progress in life…all that!! )

Jupiter & Venus – between them are all about GOOD-FORTUNES & GOOD-LUCK. Their energies can help with all good things.

That’s it.. get your stuff ready…and log in at 12pm..
We won’t waste time.. we’ll get straight to it.
I’ll give some brief explanations of the God/ Goddess we are drawing in, explain the magic, and off we go..!

Once zoom starts, I’ll lock the room to avoid distractions.
There will be NO replay. You get one chance.. to take it!!

Video: Wiccan Blessing of Wine by Priest & Priestess (Cup & Wand Ceremony)

In Wicca & Witchcraft rituals – both public or private ones in Covens, during the `Cakes & Wine’ part of the ceremony, a magical couple bless the Wine. This is usually done during the `Cakes & Wine’ section that follows the main ceremony.

During the Blessing of the Wine, the Priest kneels and holds the Chalice of Wine (female symbol), while the Priestess stands holding the Athame or wand (male symbol). The Priestess then speaks the words, and gently plunges the wand into the chalice – symbolic of a union of male and female energies. The blessed wine is then offered to the Priestess first, then the Priest partakes of it. Then if there is a circle or congregation, the Chalice of wine is shared with all.

Bright Blessings.

Hindu Magic: Shiva Yantra and Mantra

Shiva yantra FB Mani Navasothy 2019-v2

This graphics I created combines the most auspicious and powerful Markandeya mantra (also called Mrityunjaya mantra) and the Shiva Yantra. generally Yantras should not be shown to others …and just kept on sacred altar..  But this is a graphics I grabbed from internet…not an actual metal Yantra…so using it here for educational purposes..Interesting that it actually has a pentagram at the centre..

Yantras are Hindu versions of sacred Geometry …with God names and mantras written on them in Sanskrit and follow certain rules of how to create them.. when to create them..and how to work with them in Poojas and prayers / meditations etc.. In short they take several days or weeks of preparation to `install’ on an altar and thereafter treated as `God’ or `Goddess’.. and never to be handled disrespectfully.. (they are way more serious than just a statue or picture of a Deity.. They *are* Deity..once properly consecrated and installed.

No one should work with them or touch them if they have had meat of any kind.. They should not touch the ground.. They should on;y be handled after a shower.. etc (many such rules).

I have some yantras I obtained years ago..and they are still covered up and awaiting work.. as I am not yet of a certain high spiritual pure state to work with them.. That should tell you how serious this work is..

I’ll be running some key Hindu Magic ceremonies and workshops in late Spring 2019 onwards.. So keep your eyes peeled on this matter.
