Dec2019 RetailAstroMagicDid you ever wonder why the holiday season is all about peace and good will towards men? Well, it’s because the holidays begin during Sagittarius season. Sagittarius is all about optimism and the belief in a better world. So, you can see why everyone is in such a good mood and willing to let go of their hard-earned money to purchase gifts that will be opened in 10 minutes. But, would we have it any other way? 

Sagittarius season starts off with the Sun in the 6th house. This means that the optimistic spirit innate in the sign of the centaur will be expressed through the events of our daily lives. Still, the Sagittarius Sun instructs us to keep our eye on the big picture and not get bogged down in details we call struggles. Don’t throw out the baby with the bath water because of a bad day.  Keep working the plan.

We have two major astrological events that occur during Sagittarius season – Jupiter moves into Capricorn and Jupiter forms a trine to Uranus in Taurus. 

Let’s begin with Jupiter moving into the sign of the goat. Now, Jupiter is considered ill-dignified in Capricorn and has trouble expressing its expansive spirit.  However, Jupiter, regardless of its placement, remains generous and plies us with opportunities. Capricorn says you still have to work for it. It could be a win, win negotiation for all. 

This dovetails into Jupiter trine Uranus, and you’re going to love this. Uranus reflects our need to be innovative and approach life by trying new strategies. Combine this with Jupiter’s expansive qualities you are bound to succeed at anything you do. You can boost your luck by magically charging this aspect with Success Affirmation candle and Road Opener Motor City Hoo Doo candle or oil

What to watch out for in the first half of December.

On December 3rd  the truth won’t hide from you, and you will have amazing insights around a situation you are puzzling about.  Use this time to negotiate deals or build positive business relationships. In the romance department December 3rd is also the prime time to bond with your significant other and is ideal for making a new love connection.  If you chose to wait a week, the situation could look totally different as Venus will be moving into Capricorn on the 10th .

On December 8th our energy will be low and slow as the Sun squares Neptune.  Best use of this time is it to turn inward through music, meditation, and spiritual work.  It’s better to tune in than tune out and will prepare you for the energy boost brought by Mercury as it moves into Sagittarius on December 9th .  The optimistic spirit of the sign of the archer will kick into high gear so if you need to pursue a legal solution to problems, go for it.  Mercury will also reactivate the lucky aspect between Jupiter and Uranus. Take advantage of this energy while you can because it will not be available again until 2028. Energy and Truth and Justice Blessed Herbal candles are recommended for communication issues through December. 

The second half of December high lights

Venus continues to rain on our parade as she conjoins Saturn on December 11th .  Insecurities and unresolved relationship issues arise and need to be handled. If you pass on this big giant hint, long-term difficulties could easily occur.

The financial forecast for December is equally difficult. It’s necessary to be careful of your spending throughout the month because struggles, past financial issues, and potential surprises could influence your bottom line. Like last month, you need to continue burning protection candles to preserve your resources. Try Protection Blessed Herbal candle, Fiery Wall of Protection Motor City Hoo Doo candle or Guardian Protector Affirmation candle.

Later in the month (December 19 – December 22), Mars forms a resourceful sextile to Saturn and Pluto. The two planetary configurations will give you the drive and determination to succeed, especially if you charge it with Crown of Glory Motor City Hoo Doo candle or oil. 

The Sun also mixes it up with Uranus and Jupiter. These aspects make December the month to take advantage of opportunities when they are presented.  The smell of victory in the air! We will wrap this astro magic up with what Mars is up to in December. Mars is in Scorpio, who is diligent, materialistic, and has the stamina to pursue almost anything. So, you can use this energy to pursue whatever you desire. There you have it.  The best way to surf the stars in December.

Nov2019 AstroMagicThe season of Scorpio is upon us.  Even though this sign is associated with the 8th house of death and regeneration and is known as one of the three negative months in the mystical kabbalah, Storm wants us to remember that we can use this energy to transform or let go of what no longer serves us.  It is our season of shedding and preparing for new growth.

Big picture is, the Sun lands in the 9th house of beliefs and this signifies that this Scorpio season is about transforming belief systems that are outdated and no longer make sense.  On a personal level Scorpio gives us the fortitude to jettison inherited dysfunctional family behaviors and beliefs that are stunting our personal growth. In other words, like the snake that represents the sign, we need to shed our old skin in order to transform into something new and fits us better. 

Thankfully the Sun makes only positive aspects throughout the month.  This allows us to develop our identities through friendships, networking, and our creativity. The best day to do this inner and outer work is November 11, 2019 when the Sun conjoins Mercury in retrograde. Enhance your self-discovery with an Emotional Balance Blessed Herbal candle and Affirmation Goddess candle burning brightly on your altar. 

Yes, Mercury spends most of the month retrograde. This means that communication will be challenging. You should avoid making major decisions or purchases, electronics and automobiles may be problematic, and travel plans may go awry. However, despite its notable tensions, Mercury retrograde gives us an opportunity to reflect on the last few months and make a course correction if necessary. For protection during Mercury Retrograde burn our Mercury Retrograde Neutralizer Blessed Herbal candle or our Hoo doo Van Van candle

On the other hand, Mercury makes only beneficial aspects through the month that will help us strategize and make the changes we need to make in our lives, especially towards the end of the month when Mercury turns direct and trines Neptune and sextiles Saturn. Mercury trine Neptune (Nov. 28) gives us a creative boost and Mercury sextile Saturn (Nov 29) is good for activities that require focus and concentration. 

When it comes to love and money in November, we find Venus feeling very frisky. The same ole same ole becomes stifling in your relationships. Time to take some risks and try different activities that will make your relationship more exciting. We recommend Hoo Doo Adam and Eve or Wicked Witch Mojo Red Stilettos candles to spice up your love life. 

On the financial front, you may need to be a tad more conservative with spending throughout November. Venus in Sagittarius can cause excessive and impulse shopping.  We know you want to show your love through gifts, but we all got limits and should respect them. To protect the credit score in 2020, create a realistic budget and track your spending.  Avoid financial offers or investments on November 14th. Venus forms a nasty square to deceptive Neptune and scammers will be on the prowl. We recommend Protection Blessed Herbal and Hoo Doo Fiery Wall of Protection candles throughout November for financial matters. You need to protect your money from dubious individuals and yourself. 

Check your motivation and choices this month. Mars spends the first half of November weakened in relationship-oriented Libra. You need to give yourself that extra push and make sure you are not doing things to simply please others. On November 5th, Mars collides with Pluto in Capricorn and trouble may be on the horizon. It’s best to avoid places that are considered dangerous while this violent aspect is active. Closer to home, Mars square Pluto implies manipulation, feeling overpowered, and subjugated by powers beyond your control. Protection and Hoo Doo High John candles need to be in your November arsenal. 

On November 18, 2019, Mars moves out of Libra and into its own sign of Scorpio and heads towards another outer planet showdown as he opposes Uranus. You may face difficulties with others and arguments will easily happen. Avoid reactive behavior or unexpected surprises will leave you feeling unsettled. Good advice no matter what is happening in the outer planets. Keep the peace with Blessed Herbal Happy Home candles.

Sept Astro MagicThankfully, we had an astrological break in August from the intense energies that occurred in July. However, and there is no way to sugar coat this, September is as difficult as July was.  There are more than a few unsavory aspects that will make our collective skin crawl. 

In Kabbalah, Virgo is known as Elul and is the cosmic month of repentance (Teshuvah). This is the time when we let go of the negative actions we engaged in throughout the year. We will all be called to increase our understanding of the root causes and make personal changes to avoid repeating them in the future. It’s also the month where we need to make good on any promises (vows) we made over the last year. So, you can see, on the spiritual level, life is about to get rather demanding. 

In the mundane world, Virgo season is equally difficult. Virgo is about details and this can be overwhelming to many, especially the fire signs. However, focusing on details may be the only way we can get the results out of life we prefer. Pay close attention to information you receive throughout September because it may be the key to removing obstacles in your life. 

Act One

On September 2nd, the Sun conjoins Mars in Virgo and is a powerhouse that can attract new things and break through obstacles. For Sun conjunct Mars, we recommend Attraction Blessed Herbal oil and Out of My Way Wicked Witch Mojo oil.  Beware of using too much verbal force on the 3rd. That’s when Mercury conjoins Mars.  It will serve you well not to let your tongue control your better sensibilities. When the trickster planet is aligned with the God of War there is a tendency to not filter your conversations. To protect yourself, consider lighting the Gossip Stop Hoo Doo candle. To balance impulsive tendencies, we recommend the Root Chakra Magic Success candle or spray

In other parts of heaven, dear Venus tango’s with Virgo, which is the sign of her fall. Venus feels exceptionally weak kneed in Virgo, and can lead us to feelings of insecurity in both love and money. On September 4th, Venus opposes Neptune. Venus-Neptune aspects are extremely tricky because we tend toward idealization, fantasy, and eventually disappointment when ordinary people can’t live up to our expectations. So, relationship difficulties are likely, and financial problems can easily occur. Its fun to get caught up in the glamor of money, at least until the bill comes due. We recommend the Truth and Justice Blessed Herbal candle to bring clear vision while Venus is in the sign of the Virgin, but Love’s Enchantment and Self-esteem Blessed Herbal candles work nicely once Venus moves into Libra on September 14th

Although Mars makes mainly positive aspects throughout September, it does form a difficult aspect to Neptune on September 4th.  This is a potentially potent energy drain.  We suggest burning the Energy Will Blessed Herbal candle to increase your stamina and get through the Neptunian slump like it never happened.

Mid-Month Magic Needed

The Full Moon is in the sign of Pisces on September 13th. Pisces is difficult to maneuver because it is never clear about anything. Also, Pisces is the sign associated with addiction. Use this Full Moon to get clear on your addiction and deal with it. We recommend Healing, Heart, and Needed Change Blessed Herbal candles for this Piscean Full Moon. Also, on September 13th, the Sun trines Pluto. This energy is great for standing in your personal power. Celebrate you with a Goddess candle from the affirmation line.  Venus moves into its own sign of Libra on the 14th.  This will improve relationships and financial difficulties. Another reason to celebrate.

The famous final scene

The New Moon enters Libra on September 28th. Libra is the sign of relationships and is the best time of the year to do love magic. To improve your relationships, we recommend Adam and Eve Hoo Doo candle and Love’s Enchantment Blessed Herbal candle. To bring in a new relationship, call on Attraction Blessed Herbal candle and Come to Mama Wicked Witch Mojo oil to boost your charisma.  To keep you grounded in reality we suggest you also burn Stability and Self-Esteem and Truth and Justice blessed Herbal candles.

Mercury moves into fair-and-balanced Libra but unfortunately forms difficult aspects to Saturn on September 22nd and Pluto on September 26th. While Mercury is square Saturn you may feel depressed and have difficulties seeing the positive in your life. Avoid negative thinking as best as you can and use the Chakra Magic Love spray to keep your mood elevated. Then, when Mercury squares Pluto a few days later, hidden information may become known which can shake things up. Analyze everything and get to the facts. You may need to put your circumstances into perspective or trouble could occur when Venus squares Saturn on September 25th.  We hope you cruse through September with grace and ease.  Coventry products will certainly help.

Oct2019 AstroMagicLibra is considered the sign of relationships and in every practical sense it is. Although pop astrology tends to focus on love relationships, the sign of the scales governs all relationships, even relationships with our enemies.  But what is the undercurrent meaning to Libra?  

In Greek Mythology, there is an amazing story called ‘The Judgment of Paris’. It’s about a young shepherd boy named Paris, who is randomly chosen by Zeus to judge who was the most beautiful Olympian Goddess. The contestants were Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite.  Each of the three goddess’s bribe Paris based upon their divine attributes. Hera offers Paris world domination. Athena offers him strategy in war. Aphrodite simply drops her magic girdle and offers Paris the most beautiful woman in the world. Of course, since Paris is a young man ruled by hormones and without worldly sophistication, he chooses Aphrodite and is given Helen of Troy as his prize. 

The Judgment of Paris is not about love despite its surface level storyline. In fact, Paris’ prize, Helen of Troy, was already married and the result of their illicit affair caused the Trojan War. So, the story is really about choices, and on its deepest level, so is the sign of Libra. This month your choices matter. So, be careful and make them wisely. 

October’s broad strokes are, the Sun will be challenged by three planets, Saturn (October 7th), Pluto (October 14th) and Uranus (October 28th). All three of these planets will put pressure on our day-to-day lives, specifically in career and relationships. We recommend Uncrossing Hoo Doo, and Tornado Alley Wicked Witch Mojo candles.  Keep at least one on hand just in case you need to untangle a dicey situation.  Then, get out your Van Van Hoo Doo candles because you will need them from October 11th when Mercury goes into shadow and then retrograde on the 30th.  The Van Van candle is excellent in reverting bad energy back into happy energy. 

Our friend Mercury spends the entire month in Scorpio and as much as that sounds scary, it allows you to dig into the deepest parts of your life.  That will help you figure out which areas need tweaks and which areas need a full transformation. All of this will be enhanced when Mercury goes retrograde on Halloween.  Boo!

Venus moves through Scorpio for most of the month and may leave you feeling controlled or manipulated in your relationships. Or you may feel the need to be controlling.  Either way, stand in your own personal power and seek clarity and balance. A great way to do that is with Empowered Chakra Magic candle or spray.  We also suggest the Goddess Affirmation candle for guidance of a higher nature. Don’t ask Hera, Athena or Aphrodite though.  Just kidding.

Mars spends the month in Libra, the sign of its detriment. Ah fun times with warrior energy in your relationships.  Let out the aggression on the court or in the field or with passionate sex. Make sure you match the correct activity with the appropriate relationship.  Neither of those an option? Then use some self-control on those reactive impulses for heaven's sake. Get some stability with our Stability Blessed Herbal candle.

Let’s break it down

In the beginning of the month, relationships and finances may need a rescue as Venus forms a frustrating square on October 1. She’s going to rip the blinders off of repressed difficult and tense emotions. If you’re not surprised, at least act it.  It will keep you out of trouble. Sadly, in work situations you may feel financially dominated by others. Dust off your negotiation skills and make ‘em work for that domination. Mercury opposes Uranus (October 7th) and your mind will be in overdrive. To avoid over talking, talking over or hogging the limelight, put a timer on your tongue. That too will keep you out of trouble this month. We recommend one of our protection candles, like, Fiery Wall Hoo Doo, Flying Monkeys Wicked Witch Mojo or Protection Blessed Herbal candles. 

Mid-month, specifically on October 12th, Venus opposes Uranus, and this is a classic break-up aspect. You may need magic for improving relationships and grief magic in case one comes to an end.  We’ve got several candles, oils and sprays to choose from depending on your situation. To strengthen your marriage, Adam and Eve Hoo Doo candle and plans for date night with a lovely heart to heart. To manage your heartbreak, and we are truly sorry, Grief Affirmation candle, some comfort food and invite a good friend over to watch a movie. 

Towards the end of the month, Mars will form difficult aspects to frustrating and limiting Saturn, which makes you feel like you are driving with the brakes on. But there is a ray of light as Venus and Mars move into mutual reception status, so no matter how difficult things get there is always a way out if you are willing to look for it. We recommend Road Opener Hoo Doo or Out of My Way Wicked Witch Mojo candles to deal with Mars energy. The rest of the month, Mercury forms positive aspects to Saturn, Pluto, and Venus, which is great to get projects done, transform yourself, and build positive bridges with others.  Reminder, Mercury goes retrograde on Halloween.

Copy of Magic AstroAugust 470sqAfter an incredibly turbulent July, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. August is calm and there are only two difficult aspects, but there are several good ones that we can take advantage of throughout the month. Now, Leo is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac (along with Scorpio) and pop-culture astrology sites use keywords like self-involved, attention seekers, prideful, egotistical, and narcissistic to describe the sign of the lion, and these are at times valid descriptions. But, because of these over the top descriptors, the deeper essence of Leo gets lost.

The sign of Leo is ruled by the Sun, the giver of life, which is aptly described in the Tarot card of the Sun that features a naked child riding a horse without a care or problem in the world. The nakedness of the child reflects the essence of the sign of Leo, that at the core of our being and once all the clothes created by living life are removed, the only that that we have left is our individuality. And, that is what Leo is about – the process of becoming individual.

Every sign is available to all of us, and Leo season is no exception. Leo is the month out of the year where we develop our own personal PR strategy for the next year. Focus on what you would like to do and achieve and then develop a strategy of self-promotion. Essentially, it’s a whole month of you doing you, so take advantage of this energy while you can.

The Sun only forms positive aspects throughout the month, including trines to Jupiter and Uranus and a conjunction to Venus. So, this month is great to amp up your luck, attract new things (including people) to you and exploring new options by opening your mind to new experiences. We recommend Black Cat Hoo Doo, Attraction Blessed Herbal, and Everything and Then Some Wicked Witch Mojo candles for the month.

Communication:

Through the first half of the month Mercury in Cancer will still be in shadow, meaning he has not returned to the point that he went retrograde in July. Communication difficulties may persist through mid-August, but many of the themes that came up during the retrograde will be resolved. During the second half of the month, Mercury moves into fiery Leo and slams head first into Uranus on August 16th. Mercury square Uranus makes us feel nervous, agitated, reactive, and we put our foot in our mouth at the worst possible time that can lead to arguments and disagreements. However, towards the end of the month creative ideas and activities are recommended. For the first half of the month, I would continue to burn Van Van Hoo Doo candles, but for the second half I would recommend Energy Will Blessed Herbal candles to increase creativity.

For Love and Money:

It’s the month of summer lovin’ as most of the month Venus moves through romantic Leo and towards the middle of the month, Venus trines Jupiter activating one of the most romantic days of the year. Use this month to magically improve your relationships or even attract a new one.

Although your love life may be off the hook, financially Venus moving through Leo should come with a caution sticker. Avoid overspending and try to conserve your finances throughout the month, especially when Venus trines Jupiter because this aspect often throws caution to the wind. We recommend Stability Blessed Herbal candle to stay grounded and Prosperity Blessed Herbal candle to keep money flowing.

 

Action:

Mars moves through fiery Leo during the first part of August. This cycle is great to attract people to you that will help push you to the next level. Mars in Leo is when you should go after what you want and succeed at getting it. Anoint yourself with lodestone oil or Attraction Blessed Herbal oil until August 17th when Mars moves into Virgo. While Mars is in Virgo, if you want to change jobs this would be a good time to work on it magically. Although Querent Caller Hoo Doo candle is used to attract clients, it can also be used to find steady work.
