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.

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 is 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.

When a psychic attack comes your way Evergreen 470sqWhen you are under psychic attack you need to address it right away.  Whether the attack is purposeful or a case of jealousy or anger gone wild ignoring it and hoping it will go away can leave you open to some very uncomfortable times.  Some symptoms of a psychic attack are confusion, unexplained emotions, dizziness, pain in your body and even flu symptoms. You may even experience bad luck or accidents.

 

When a psychic attack comes your way, you can use candle magic to help you. We have provided two powerful protection rituals. One is to block an attack, the other is to protect yourself and possibly find out the source of the negative psychic energy.

 

Once you are feeling safe and no longer experiencing symptoms, you can look into why you were attacked and where you were vulnerable.  Then you can start the healing and strengthening process.

 

There are always two sides to every attack, theirs and yours and no one is 100% an innocent victim.  Part of your healing and strength will include understanding how you contributed to the incident and take responsibility of your side of the story.  Then you can work toward letting it go and forgiving all involved. Seek out help as you will be getting into areas of your life where you may be unconscious of all the factors. This can be a great opportunity to grow spiritually.

Blocking an Attack Spell

 

You will need 2-4 cups of dry sand, a Protection Blessed Herbal candle, a piece of tissue paper with your name on it, a large box or baking sheet, a metal bowl, a smaller box for disposal. There are several other protection candles in our catalog to choose from as well.

 

Place the large box or baking sheet on the floor and pour the sand into it.  Place the paper with your name on it on top of the sand. Grind the paper into the sand until it becomes small shreds.  While you do this, visualize cutting the connection to all people who wish you harm or interfere with you. Use as much emotion as you can.  They no longer influence your life.

 

Now scoop up the sand and paper mixture and put it in a metal bowl.  Put a protection candle in the center. Say a prayer of protection or the blessing on the label. Light the candle and let them burn down to the sand and sputter out. Transfer the sand to the smaller box and take to a dumpster far away from your home. Do this as soon as the candle(s) sputter out.  DO NOT WAIT. If you absolutely have to wait, then place everything in a plastic bag and seal it, dispose of it as soon as you can. Important candle burning safety tips. Always remove all packaging around our candles before lighting and never leave a burning candle unattended. Do not leave a candle burning while you sleep. Blow it out and light it again the next day when you will be home to attend to it.

 

Protection from All Directions

 

You will need a Protection Blessed Herbal candle and a candle for each direction, 5 candleholders, your name on a clean sheet of paper, sea salt (not table salt).  We suggest, Truth and Justice, Energy, Emotional Balance and Stability Blessed Herbal candles for the four directions.

 

Create a circle of salt in the center of your altar (Or use a big pizza pan to hold everything).  Place the candleholders on the 4 directions (east, south, west, and north) on the salt line and place holder for the protection candle in the center.

 

Put the paper with your name under the Protection Candle Holder.  Put the protection candle in its holder and light it. Take the candle for the East and light it from the Protection Candle and place it in its holder.

 

Draw a line of salt from the East each direction point to all other direction points, East to South, East to West then East to North while saying, “In all directions I am protected from all sides I am protected.  No words or thoughts can harm me.”

 

Take the candle for the South and light it from the Protection Candle, and touch it to the East Candle, then place it in its holder.  Draw a line of salt From the South point to the West Point, then from the South point to the North Point, then From the South Point to the East Point while saying, “In all directions I am protected from all sides I am protected.  No wishes or anger can harm me.”

 

Take the candle for the West and light it from the Protection Candle, and touch it to the East candle and the South candle, then place it in its holder.  Draw a line of salt From the West to the North, then from the West to the East, then From the West to the South while saying, “In all directions I am protected from all sides I am protected.  No Emotions or Jealousy can harm me.”

 

Take the candle for the North and light it from the Protection Candle, and touch it to the East candle, the South candle, and the West candle then place it in its holder.  Draw a line of salt from the North to the East, then From the North to the South and the North to the West while saying, “In all directions I am protected from all sides I am protected.  No actions or earthly forces or magic can harm me.”

 

“As above, so below; as within, so without; I am protected I am loved and I am safe.”

 

Sit with this spell for a while and feel yourself surrounded with protection, having built a fortress.  When you are finished for the day, extinguish the candles and say,

 

“I may extinguish your flame, but your magic glows brighter than the morning star”

 

Light these candles every day.  The candle that burns the fastest is the direction from which your attack is coming from.  If you need further clarification, put a name on a paper next to each candle on the outside of the salt circle before you begin the ritual.  The fastest Burning candle will tell you who the culprit is.

 

If the center candle burns that fastest then it is someone very close to you, or you are sabotaging yourself.  Important candle burning safety tips. Always remove all packaging around our candles before lighting and never leave a burning candle unattended. Do not leave a candle burning while you sleep. Blow it out and light it again the next day when you will be home to attend to it.

July Astro Magic Brace for an Astrological ass whoopingWe’re going to rip the bandaid off fast. July is by far the most difficult month of the year.  With the help of Coventry products and faith in yourself, you will get through it. We’ve got two powerful potent eclipses and Mercury goes retrograde. Eclipses put the brakes on and Mercury retrograde means irritating malfunctions and miscommunications.

During the season of the crab we are all about creating emotional security and building a stable foundation.  Which is why in the US Cancer is associated with baseball, hotdogs, and Mom’s apple pie. Not to mention being enthusiastically patriotic. Of course, each country has their own icons for a happy home and national pride and security.

This year our beloved Cancer season is going to be exceptionally intense because of other players in the zodiac. Never the fault of Cancer itself of course.  The Sun will tangle with the zodiacal bad boys, Saturn and Pluto. This means the choices and decisions we made (or failed to make) six months ago will be tested. We may experience difficulties with people which may include confrontations, conflicts, and arguments. To keep your emotions calm anoint your wrists daily with Happy Home Blessed Herbal oil.  To ease tensions at home keep an Adam & Eve Hoo Doo or Heart Blessed Herbal candles burning (remove all packaging and never leave a burning candle unattended). Don’t forget, we highly recommend burning a Van Van Hoo Doo candle while Mercury is retrograde. The hot bed day is July 8th when arguments, disagreements, and reactive behavior are not only probable, the could get pretty intense.  In other parts of the heavens, Venus influences us to do something out of our comfort zone and shake things up a bit. Our romantic relationships are ripe for more excitement.

The first eclipse of eclipse season happens on July 2nd in Cancer. This solar eclipse happens during the new moon.  Ordinarily, New Moons are the time to do manifestation magic, but with Mercury about to turn retrograde, this is not the best course of action. Instead, we can use this New Moon to get in touch with our emotions and motivations.  Self-analysis could reveal some truths we need to see. July is also about being fully present, valuing the way we spend our time, reducing stress, and being in the moment. Meditate on your chakras with our Chakra Magic candles during this beautifully reflective time and release pent up stress that wastes our energy and messes with our zen.  

Mercury Retrograde in July

Next up, is Mercury retrograde which happens on July 7th. This retrograde begins in the sign of Leo, but the traditional warnings are still applicable.  Do not begin anything new, avoid signing documents or making firm agreements. Resist making big purchases. It could bring on buyer’s remorse next month.  Communication problems are likely, travel plans may be interrupted, and technology tends to break down. We always recommend burning Van Van Candles during a Mercury retrograde. Financial frustrations in the second half of the month may trigger anxiety and loss of faith. We suggest Road Opener, Needed change, or Out of My Way candles to keep the money flowing and in the right direction.

July 16th we have a lunar eclipse in the sign of Capricorn. The sign of the goat governs our station in life and manages our reputation, place in society, and the labels that define who we are. Since this eclipse is also a powerful Full Moon, we can use it to re-invent ourselves and let go of behaviors that no longer define us.  Also, this is a great time to repair our reputations. A possible path to revelation is to get honest about the motivations behind our past bad choices and decisions, forgive ourselves and let it all go. Also on the 16th is when trouble begins in the confidence department. Insecurities and self- doubt may begin to plague us and bleed into our relationships. This internal struggle will continue straight through the rest of the month.  Strengthen the solar plexus with Coventry’s Confidence Chakra Magic spray. Adam & Eve and Happy Home candles will protect our relationships until we feel better.

This month something occurs that is very rare. We have two New Moons in one month. This New Moon on July 31st is in fiery Leo.  It’s a great Moon to do self-improvement magic, beauty magic, and attraction magic. Our Self-Love and Forgiveness Witches Union Spell will be greatly enhanced by the power of this moon.  Bonus, Mercury goes direct on July 31st too.

Although Mercury retrograde and solar eclipses interfere with beginning anything new, life still goes on. Mars moves through fiery Leo and brings a silver lining. Our creative projects become more important and achieving goals boost individual satisfaction. Stay positive and proactive!

Got to much on your mind June Magic Astro 470sqIn June we transition out of earthy Taurus into airy Gemini. This is the season of the mind, communication, learning and being in the now. Gemini has been considered a flaky energy but this is simply not true.  This sign of the intellect is capable of processing so many ideas that focusing on one thing just wouldn’t do. Instead of labeling Gemini, let’s honor the gift she brings us. Her power of analysis opens doors of new thought and communication and her panache for strategizing is out of this world. All very important components for innovations and discoveries.

 

Throughout the month our thoughts will be influenced by our changing emotions because Mercury is in Cancer. Protect yourself from the low swings with general protection spells, protection candles and amulets. For every low there is a high.  Enjoy the parties and intellectually stimulating conversations as your calendar could fill up quickly with invitations. This is a great time to spend with close friends and deepening friendships that already exist.

 

Magically speaking this month is about making your mind a magnet for inspiration.  Storm Cestavani suggests using the Truth and Justice Blessed Herbal candle to clear your mind and participate in one of the most powerful magical tools we have – journaling. After all, messages from the universe do not always come through signs and synchronistic wonders, they come from thoughts that drift through our mind.

 

As we progress through the month here is what we can expect from the heavenly bodies and how they will influence us. We start the month feeling frustrated by poor execution of our ideas. This is because the Sun squares Neptune. We will get relief from this by mid-month and the wheels start turning again. To help with meeting deadlines burn an Energy Blessed Herbal candle. Also, whenever there is low energy, there is also self-worth and self-esteem issues that crop up. Combat that with one of these powerfully uplifting candles or oils, Uncrossing Hoo Doo, Needed Change Blessed Herbal candle, Poof and Tornado Alley Wicked Witch Mojo.

 

Mid-month brings one of those mood swings where we are super sensitive about the world around us, especially our personal world. Feeling restricted and even paranoid can overlay what’s really going on thanks to Saturn and Pluto.  This veil of confusion can be lightened by applying High John or Crown of Glory oil on your pulse points and burning a Blessed Herbal Healing and Heart candles. The weather will be mimicking our fears and acting out with thunderstorms and possible tornadoes, oh my!  Mars also forms a very frustrating opposition to Saturn and you’ll feel like you are driving with the brakes on. No matter what you do, progress could elude you. Guess who will take the brunt of this? Your friends family and co-workers. To offset all this emotional energy, use our Chakra Magic sprays and candles to keep your chakras balanced and your energy grounded.

 

Sliding into the last part of the month, your be pleasantly surprised by positive changes and it will really feel like some good old fashioned good luck has come your way. You can magically tapped into and direct this energy in any area of life it’s needed with candles like Wishin’ Mojo, Fast Cash, and Black Cat.  Use your intentions wisely.

 

There is one Venusian blip that will occur towards the end of the month when Venus forms a troubling square to Neptune. This can pull you into a starry eyed view of people and put them on the pedestal of “you are my everything”.  This is unrealistic and dangerous to any relationship because nobody can be the ‘end all and be all’ for everyone. If you find this really starting to irritate your relationships you can counter act it by either burning a Stability Blessed Herbal candle or wearing Stability oil. Remember, you are always in control of the way you react to your situations.
