Libra is the sign of relationships, and although pop astrology focuses on love relationships, the sign of the scales governs all relationships, even relationships with our enemies.  

But what is the undercurrent of Libra?  

In Greek Myth, there is a fantastic tale called 'The Judgment of Paris.' It's a story about a young shepherd boy named Paris, who Zeus randomly chooses to judge who was the most beautiful Olympian goddess. The contestants were Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite, and each of the three goddesses bribes Paris based upon their divine attributes. Hera offers Paris world domination, Athena offers him strategy in war, and Aphrodite drops her magic girdle and offers Paris the most beautiful woman in the world.  But, of course, since Paris is a young man ruled by his hormones and without worldly sophistication, he chooses Aphrodite and is given Helen of Troy as his prize. 

The Judgment of Paris is not a story about love despite its surface-level storyline. Paris' prize, Helen of  Troy, was already married, and their illicit affair caused the Trojan War. So, the story is about human choices, and on its deepest level, so is the sign of Libra. 

This month our choices matter, so we need to make them carefully! 

5 Magical Ways to Make the Most Out of Libra Season 

1. Air Magic: Libra is an air sign, and the element of air is associated with the rational intellect and our ability to communicate our thoughts and ideas. So, pay close attention to what you say because, like it or not, your words are magical – they can heal or destroy. One of the easiest ways to perform air magic is journaling. The act of using a pen to channel words onto paper is a  magical art that doesn't get enough fanfare, but it works, and it works well. Also, incantations,  prayers, blessings, and saying a spell are all forms of air magic. Tools you may want to include are pens, pencils, paper, markers, feathers, incense, and grimoires.

2. Attraction Magic: Venus is the planetary ruler of Libra, and one of the attributes she excels at is attraction. Whether it's men, money, or beautiful adornments, Venus doesn't seek out what she wants; it comes to her. So, likewise, we can use attraction magic to bring to us what we desire.  Just be careful of what you wish for.

3. Love Magic: Love makes the world go round, and the sign of Libra has something to say about it.  We can use Libra's powerful discernment to help make better choices when it comes to relationships. Our good friend Dorothy Morrison has one suggestion when using magic for love – be specific and make sure you request a human being. Otherwise, if you want to bring love into your life or improve an existing relationship, Libra season can help you out.

4. Business Magic: If you own a business, you have business relationships and maybe some strategic partnerships. The sign of Libra governs all these relationships. You can use Libra season to attract new business relationships, improve existing ones, and eliminate ones you no longer need. Pro tip: Your customers are also a relationship. 

Recommended: Lakshmi (World Magic), Prosperity (Affirmation), Needed Change/Banishing  (Blessed Herbal) 

5. Legal Magic: Since Libra rules legal matters and justice, you can use the energy of the season to get the upper hand. So, whether you are resolving legal issues or starting legal proceedings, this is the time to do it. (Wait until Mercury turns direct to file legal documents).

Yes, Mercury is Retrograde 

On September 28, Mercury turned retrograde in Libra. So, relationships (ruled by Libra) have been under the gun, and this will continue until October 18. 

Mercury Rx Dirty Dozen! Tips and Tricks to Wrangling the Trickster God 

1. Make sure you go over anything contractual thoroughly. Make sure all the i's are dotted and all the t's are crossed. Then, if you can get away with it, wait until after the retrograde is over to sign on the dotted line.  

2. Avoid starting anything new. New projects tend to have communication problems and mishaps when initiated during this process. 

3. Put a watch on your tongue. (If it is not worth saying, don't say it) 

4. Check your vehicles for any potential problems. Before Mercury goes retrograde is the best time for a service call.  

5. Avoid buying real estate or renting apartments. Usually, this means you are just going to move again during a future Mercury Rx.  

6. Using mail delivery services that offer tracking and insurance – especially now since the Post  Office has still not recovered from the pandemic. 

7. Check, recheck, and check again any travel plans you have or appointments that are on the books. 

8. If you do travel, don't take anything of importance or value. Only bring items that you do not care if they are lost or stolen. 

9. Expect people from the past to resurface. However, once they do crawl out of whatever cavern they came from, proceed with caution. 

10. Back up all electronic devices. 

11. Avoid buying an automobile.  

12. Mercury Rx is a great time to scour places (online and offline) for great deals!


Lunar Magic 

New Moon in Libra:  

We reach the heart of Libra season on October 6 with the New Moon in the sign of the scales.  Ordinarily, this would be an excellent time to draw a new relationship to you, but Mercury is currently  'retched out,' and Venus (the ruler of Libra) is in her detriment in Scorpio. So instead, use this New  Moon to create new paradigms within your current relationships, which are not just limited to romantic ones. 

If you are currently single, you can make a list of all the attributes you would like out of a mate and do some cleansing magic to signify your fresh start. If you are in a relationship, you can use the New Moon to reset (such a lovely Mercury Rx word) the energies and create a more fulfilling dynamic that will help improve the relationship's overall health. In other relationships, you can modify how you work with the  New Moon based on the needs of that relationship. The key is formulating new and productive ways to make them healthier.

Full Moon in Aries: 

The Full Moon in Aries occurs on October 20. The good news is that Mercury is now direct! The bad news is that Mars (the ruler of Aries) is in detriment in Libra. So, to work with this energy, we must tweak how we would work with the planetary ruler.  

The Full Moon in Aries is a two-week cycle of letting go of personal attributes that we may not like about ourselves or are no longer effective. Are there any individual behaviors that you would like to let go of?  Oh, and news flash – we all have them! Since Mars is in Libra, you can also look at how you behave in relationships and let go of any unhealthy personal patterns that may limit the relationship's growth.  This work is not easy, but the fruits of your internal work will pay off in the end.

Weekly Breakdown 

October 4, 2021 – October 10, 2021 

The first week of October starts mild, but a potential powder keg could explode towards the end of the week if you do not remain mindful.

The week starts with the Moon moving through Virgo, and it's an excellent day to check things off your to-do list. Any tasks that need to be completed should be taken care of because the energy later in the week is not conducive for mundane responsibilities. Then, on Tuesday, we begin preparing for the New  Moon as the Moon moves into airy Libra. 

Midweek, Venus moves into Sagittarius. You are going to seek excitement and adventure out of your relationships. However, day-to-day repetitious responsibilities may annoy you, and you may feel bored and restless on the regular. So, while Venus is in Sagittarius (until November 5), it would be an excellent time to take a trip or at least get away from the real world – if even for just a little while. 

This weekend, stay on guard because the energy is volatile as the Sun, Mercury, and Mars all conjoin in  Libra. You will need to put a watch on your tongue because it may pop off at the least opportune time leading to potential arguments and unnecessary conflict. 

The key to this weekend is to analyze your life and check to see if you are happy with the direction your life is headed. If not, begin to create a plan of change that will push you in the right direction. You will notice that your mood will be directly connected to the level of your happiness. 

Recommended: Tranquility (Affirmation), Happiness (Blessed Herbal), Keep Calm and Lavender On (Wicked  Good Spray) 


October 11, 2021 – October 17, 2021 

The second week of October is much easier, with only one snafu on Sunday when the Sun squares Pluto.  

On Monday and Tuesday, the Moon moves through responsible Capricorn. As a result, your focus will be on work and work-related matters. Also, mild communication issues may surface on Tuesday afternoon,  but they should resolve relatively quickly. 

Midweek, Venus forms a helpful trine to Saturn. One feature of this aspect is that it's an auspicious time to work through relationship issues with the likelihood that everyone will stay calm. Another part of  Venus sextile Saturn is that it's great for business, especially if you are working on projects with others. 

This weekend, we have a couple of positive aspects as the Sun trines Jupiter and Mercury sextiles Venus.  First, it's a perfect weekend to look at the big picture and decide what you want out of your life – a  notable energy change from last weekend. Second, however, be on guard Sunday because the Sun will square Pluto, and people on power trips will come out of the woodwork.

October 18, 2021 – October 24, 2021 

The third week of October starts with some good news as Mercury turns direct. You can now sign documents, finalize business deals, move house, or buy a car. Expect communication to return to normal and begin to repair any damage Mercury may have caused, if necessary. 

Midweek, we have the Full Moon in Aries. Again, focus on ridding yourself of behaviors that are limiting your relationships. Later on Wednesday, the Moon moves into pleasure-loving Taurus. Over the next two days, do something you enjoy, pamper yourself, and treat yourself to something decadent. 

This weekend, Mars forms a challenging square to power-hungry Pluto. Power struggles and disagreements are likely. Avoid falling into a victim mindset. Also, this weekend, Scorpio season begins as the Sun moves into the sign of the Scorpion on Sunday. 

Recommended: Healing  - Heart Chakra (Chakra magic), Protection (Blessed Herbal), Inner Balance (Blessed Herbal)


October 25, 2021 – October 31, 2021 

The last week of October is a bit of a dog's breakfast with a mixture of positive and challenging aspects. 

At the beginning of the week, Venus forms a challenging square to Neptune. You may have to control your romantic fantasies long enough for your partner to appear human. Further, your expectations may be way too high, and ultimately you could end up disappointed. Also, financial decisions should be avoided until later in the week. 

On Thursday, Venus comes out of her Neptunian fog and forms a lovely aspect to jolly Jupiter. It's not a  great day to focus on anything important; it's an excellent day to focus on fun and adventure. So, make sure you do something you enjoy. 

This weekend, the Sun forms a frustrating square to Saturn. You may experience feelings of self-doubt and other insecurities. Try to push past negative thoughts and do something to distract you. Your problems are probably not as big as they appear to be.

For the bulk of the summer, I felt trapped in cosmic Groundhog Day as multiple planets retriggered Saturn square Uranus to the point that I felt like these two planets had taken control of my life.

I mean, it was all I seemed to write about, and as a content creator, that can be unnerving, and I am sure that my readers were sick and tired of endless discussions about preserving structures and unexpected change.

Now, I will warn you, Venus does get hammered by Saturn and Uranus later in the month, but overall, it’s much easier. So, we can all breathe a sigh of relief.

Welcome to Virgo Season…

In kabbalah, Virgo is the month of Elul, and it is the cosmic month of repentance (Teshuvah). Teshuvah is when we take time to acknowledge our negative actions throughout the year, understand the root cause of those negative actions, make amends when necessary, and try not to make the same mistakes in the future.

But why should we go through this arduous process?

Virgo is an earth sign concerned with the physical world, natural laws, and how the real world works. Therefore, Virgo is naturally associated with jobs, tasks, responsibilities, and rituals.

In the ancient world, Virgo was associated with servants. Although we are not servants in a technical sense, we should take care of ourselves, manage our lives, and be productive members of society. So, while we are in Virgo season, it is necessary for us to look at the areas of our lives that need management, what needs to be repaired, and what needs to be nurtured. Making our lives more efficient helps us access the positive dimensions of the sign, and in doing so, we make amends to the person that needs it the most – ourselves!


5 Magical Ways to Make the Most of Virgo Season 

1. Practical Magic: One of our biggest problems is our ability to complicate things. In our quest for the biggest, baddest, super-duper, mother-of-all spells, we can put so many ingredients in the pot that we ruin the stew. During Virgo season, it’s better to work magic in its simplest form. So, back to basics. With that said, I am going to recommend only one item for this type of magic – Witches Brew Original Candle (or oil)

2. Herbal Magic: So, picture this, you go to prepare a nice dinner and you open your spice cabinet and pull out all kinds of spices to make your meal delicious. But did you know all those spices have magical properties? Well, surprise, they do! Cinnamon heats things up; Rosemary can be used for protection, love magic, and staying young; and even ground coffee can be used to dispel negative thoughts. The next time you build a spell, put those herbs to work. Bon Appetit! 

Recommended: The Blessed Herbal Candle Line 

3. Purification Magic: The sign of Virgo is associated with cleanliness – although, I’ve met many Virgoans that hate cleaning, but the need for an orderly universe is important to them. This is a great month to purify and sterilize all your magical tools and dispel negative energies from your personal space. So, get out those magic wash packets, your uncrossing candles, and magical sprays, and just get it done!

4. Healing Magic: Have something that ‘Ails Ya’? Well, since Virgo is associated with health (that means diet and exercise, as well), this is a wonderful time of the year to do healing magic both internally and psychologically.

Recommended: Uncrossing (Motor City Hoodoo), Outta My Way (Dorothy Morrison’s Wicked Witch Mojo, Healing (Blessed Herbal)

5. Work and Career Magic: Need a job, promotion, or just want to put your boss in his place? Need some magical help ensuring that your projects will be successful? Well, this is the month to set those intentions. Spend some time journaling the results you would like to achieve, and then get to work – magically speaking.

Mercury Interruptus 

We interrupt our regular astrological forecasting, to bring you this update from our Cosmic Storm Center (the CSC) -- and yes, every pun intended!

On September 27, 2021, Mercury will turn retrograde in relationship-oriented Libra. Communication issues, especially in relationships, will be plenty. Avoid making major decisions, check and recheck travel plans, and backup electronic devices. Mercury goes into “shadow mode” on September the 7th and will remain retrograde until October 18, 2021. 

The good news is that we will be stocked up on Mercury Retrograde Neutralizer Candles but get your orders in because they go fast. Also, just a heads up, this packaging will become a collector's edition, because the labels will change soon. 

Now, on with our regularly scheduled programming. 

Lunar Magic 

New Moon Magic 

The New Moon this month occurs in the sign of Virgo on September 6th. This New Moon is about putting your life in order. It’s an excellent month to develop systems, focus on health and personal well-being, hire staff, and even to find a new job. So, use this energy to create order out of chaos and build a strong and more durable you. 

Recommended: Healing (Blessed Herbal), Heart (Blessed Herbal), Attraction (Blessed Herbal), New Moon (Astro Magic)

Full Moon Magic 

The Full Moon occurs on September 20th in the sign of Pisces. Get out your snorkel, it’s time to swim. Your intuitive faculties will be at their peak, so it’s time to do magic that will help you enhance your intuition and focus on your dreams, meditation, and connecting with spirit. You can also use this energy to increase your creativity.

Weekly Breakdown 

August 30, 2021 – September 5, 2021 

The beginning of the week starts off with Mercury moving out of Virgo and into Libra. Mercury in Libra needs to socialize and debate in order to make informed choices and decisions. Just be careful that other people do not overly influence your judgment or your decisions. 

On Thursday, Mars opposes Neptune in Pisces. Energy levels will plummet leaving you feeling disoriented and unmotivated. Avoid becoming overly frustrated by life’s circumstances because it may lead to distrusting others.

Over the weekend, Mercury forms a lovely trine to Saturn. It’s an excellent time to complete projects or tasks that require mental discipline and focus. However, beware on Sunday because Venus squares Pluto. Intense emotions could lead to relationship issues, especially if you try to hold onto a relationship too tightly. Trying to control situations could make matters worse.

Recommended: Truth and Justice (Blessed Herbal), Energy and Will (Blessed Herbal), Stability (Blessed Herbal), Keep Calm & Lavender On (Wicked Good Sprays).


September 6, 2021 – September 12, 2021 

The bulk of the energy occurs at the beginning of the week with a New Moon in Virgo and three planetary aspects – Mars trine Pluto, Venus trine Jupiter, and the Sun trine Uranus. All of these aspects are positive, which is a great relief after the intense energies of July and August. Anything you put effort into will be successful as long as you do not get out of control or unfocused. Take some time to explore new opportunities and be original. 

Towards the middle of the week, the Moon moves through relationship-oriented Libra. It’s a great week to collaborate on projects and work towards improving your connection with others. Also, if you want to start a new relationship, now is the time to explore your options. 

On Friday, and over the weekend, Venus switches signs and moves into Scorpio. Venus in Scorpio provides us with an opportunity to shed our superficial skin and connect on a deeper level in relationships. Intimacy with others will be important.

Recommended: New Moon (Astro Magic), Lucky 7 (Motor City Hoodoo), Success (Chakra Magic), Love’s Enchantment (Blessed Herbal).


September 13, 2021 – September 19, 2021

The cosmic energy this week begins on Tuesday as the Sun opposes Neptune. This is a low-energy sort of day, and you may feel confused and uncertain about the future. Try to stay out of victim mindsets because they will only lead to feelings of doubt about your world and the major players in it. Later on Tuesday, Mars moves into Libra, and he provides a small energy boost that can help break Neptune’s spell. Focusing on your feelings and connecting to your inner being may relieve some of the anxiety of Sun oppose Neptune.

Later in the week, the Sun trines Pluto on Thursday. Sun trine Pluto gives us the needed energy to discover what we want out of our lives and is easier energy than the Sun’s opposition to Neptune. Since Pluto likes to transform any planet he aspects, he helps us make the changes necessary so that our lives feel more fulfilled and have meaning. However, it’s best to make major decisions that have an impact on your life rather than ones that supply only temporary happiness.

Finally, this weekend, Venus squares frustrating Saturn. You may need to take a deep look at your relationships and whether or not your personal needs are being met in them. You may find it difficult to relate to others and this could make you feel insecure. It’s best to face relationship issues head-on and work towards a positive resolution than allowing them to fester and become toxic.

Recommended: Truth and Justice (Blessed Herbal), Love (Chakra Magic), Everything and Then Some (Dorothy Morrison’s Wicked Witch Mojo).


September 20, 2021 – September 26, 2021

This week is a mixed bag of tricks, cosmically speaking. We start off with a Full Moon in Pisces (see above) and a beautiful aspect (a trine) between Mercury and Jupiter. If you need to sign contracts or secure a deal, take advantage of this opportunity before Mercury turns retrograde next week. Otherwise, you will spend the first part of the week focused on the future and your mood should be rather optimistic. 

Despite the lighthearted energy at the beginning of the week, Wednesday and Thursday will bring a double dose of trouble as Mercury squares Pluto and Venus opposes Uranus. Be careful when interacting with others on Wednesday because Mercury square Pluto can spawn arguments if you are feeling frustrated with the people around you. The best way to work with this energy is to look within at what you can change about yourself rather than attempting to force your will upon others. On Thursday, Venus opposes Uranus in Taurus. Unresolved tensions in relationships could lead to sudden upsets and disappointments. Avoid starting new relationships at this time. 

The ray of sunshine midweek may be quite literal as the Sun moves out of Virgo and into Libra. Although tensions may be high, the Sun in Libra may be balanced enough that people respond to energies proactively rather than reactively.

This weekend, it’s time to get the job done as energetic Mars trines Saturn. You will easily be able to take care of duties and obligations under this influence. Focus on activities that need immediate attention. 

Recommended: Problem Solving (Blessed Herbal), Lakshmi (World Magic), Happy Home (Blessed Herbal), and Full Moon (Astro Magic)

September 27, 2021 – October 3, 2021

The final week of September is action-packed and filled with energy with 6 planetary aspects and Mercury the trickster god turns retrograde.

Check your plans, back up electronic devices, and avoid signing contracts starting on Monday because Mercury turns retrograde in Libra. You can expect the ‘dreaded exes’ to flood out of their caves and business rivals to be up to their usual tricks. Avoid getting distracted with pettiness.

During the middle of the week, the Sun forms a lovely trine to Saturn in Aquarius. This is a great time to create order by developing systems that help your life run more effectively. Taking care of responsibilities should be relatively easy but keep your eye on communications with others because Mercury can befuddle the best of agreements.

This weekend, problems or difficulties with others may resurface as Mercury once again squares power-hungry Pluto. In this case, arguments and debates will accomplish little, so it’s best to walk away.

July2021 WholesaleCancerMagicAs we enter the month of July, we find ourselves swimming in the healing waters of the sign of Cancer. Cancer is known for its nurturing qualities and is the sign associated with mothers and motherhood. While we are in the sign of the crab, our focus will be on self-care, caring for our families, familial and tribal bonds, and comfort and security. 

I've decided to do something new this month – you've got to shake it up sometimes. Usually, I would dive into the connections between the sign of Cancer and the myth of Achilles (he was such a mama's boy), but instead, I'm going to give you a list of the different ways to use Cancer magic so that you can get the best results out of the month.

5 Magical Ways to Use Cancer Season to Your Benefit 

  1. Healing Magic – In kabbalah, Cancer is the sign associated with all forms of healing. Cancer is a water sign, and the symbol of water reflects cleansing and purification. If you have health concerns that you want to work with magically, now is the time to do it. Recommended Candles: Spiritual Cleansing, Healing, and Heart. 
  2. Protection Magic – When a crab is threatened, it crawls into its shell to protect itself from the outer world. This month (which includes the kabbalistic negative three weeks), protection magic is enhanced because Cancer is the only sign ruled by the Moon, so it receives a full dose of lunar power to charge up your protection spells and keep the nasties at bay.
    Recommended Candles: Fiery Wall of Protection, Guardian Protector, and Flying Monkeys.
  3. Kitchen Magic – “Home is where the heart is,” and it’s through the preparation of food that we often show our love. There are many resources available for kitchen magic, but intentionally charging herbs and foods to bring forth the energy you desire is a great way to work with Cancer energy. As my good friend Jacki Smith told me, "Everything is kitchen witchery; use what you have around you at the moment."  So, the next time you grab that Frank's Hot Sauce, you can use it to heat up any area of your life that needs it. Yeah, even that *wink, wink* area!
    Recommended Candles: Happy Home and Home Blessing Kit.
  4. Prosperity Magic – Ordinarily, people took to Venus and the sign of Taurus for prosperity. However, Cancer is a sign of "nurturing," and it helps things grow properly. We can use Cancer's energy to focus on what needs to grow in our lives and give ourselves the food we need. You can also use this energy to bring energy to anything new that you have just given birth to, whether it be a new relationship, a business, a project, or even a living being. In that case, you can use Cancer magic to help it grow properly.
    Recommended Candles: Prosperity, Everything and Then Some, Goddess Affirmation Candle.
  5. Ancestral Magic – The sign of Cancer has to do with our roots – you know those people we came from. Ancestral Magic is highly effective because it evokes spirits that are invested in your well-being. After all, they helped (regardless of how far back they go) create you. So, put them to work whenever you can! I suggest you make an ancestral altar somewhere in your home. After all, if you honor them, they will return the favor. Recommended Candles: Wakin' the Dead, Ancestor Blessed Herbal, Miracles Blessing Kit

Aug2021 WholesaleAstroMagicAugust Astro Magic 2021 

I have to admit that I may be a little biased this month being a Leo, but I hope my exuberance over the sign can be a catalyst for inner change, transformation, and some good ole’ magic. 

Leo season is ruled by the Sun, and in Greek myth, the Sun is associated with the God Apollo. Now,  Apollo has quite the resume – he is the Sun God, a cosmocrator, he removes curses, he is the god of music and the father of the nine muses, and he is also a god of healing. 

That is some list! 

Since the Sun is the center of the solar system, it is not surprising that Apollo governs so many facets of life. Likewise, we can use the energy of the Sun to perform potent magic. And guess what? You don’t need any sunscreen!  

When people think of the sign of Leo (and again I am biased), they think of showy, extroverted types that need to be the center of attention. Leo is considered a ‘creator type’ because they are often involved in the performing arts. However, the deeper core of what Leo is creating has little to do with entertaining the masses – entertaining is simply a byproduct. Instead, each creation, each part, and each role get them closer to what they long for – being themselves. 

The exciting news: This month, we all get to tap into this powerfully potent energy and use it proactively to create our lives. 

Welcome to Leo season! 

5 Magical Ways to Make the Most Out of Leo Season 

1. Personal Power Magic: Standing in one’s personal power is an elusive phrase. We have a hard time describing it, but we know it when it happens. Personal power is when you are being authentically who you are and pay honor to your wants and needs. If you need encouragement,  inner conviction, a little bit of gumption, and the need to express your individual values in a way that boosts your confidence this is the best type of magic to work with. Recommended: Inner  Balance (Blessed Herbal Candle), High John the Conqueror (Motor City Hoodoo), Fire and Will  (Blessed Herbal Candle), and Ganesha (World Magic)

2. Transformational Magic: Jacki Smith and I coined the term transformational magic during our podcast, “Keep It Magic” (BTW, 6 years of archives are still available). Essentially, this type of magic digs beneath the surface and gets to the real root of your problems. It’s about changing your life from the inside out and working through the true core of your difficulties to build a life you are proud of living. Recommended: Answers (Chakra Magic), Clarity (Chakra  Magic), Spiritual Cleansing (Blessed Herbal Candle), Everything and then Some (Dorothy  Morrison’s Wicked Witch Mojo)

3. Curse Removal Magic: Curses are a popular topic in the magical communities – especially with the recent influx of new witches during this social media magical revival. The ability to remove negative magical influence is important, but the worst curses are the ones we cast on ourselves.  

In myth, Apollo was a curse breaker, and he didn’t remove hexes by tapping someone on the head with a wand. He removed curses by providing the proper pathway through insight and ingenuity. Perhaps, the more we know ourselves and when we are true to our values, we eliminate the power that curses hold over us. Only then, are we free! Recommended: Reversing (Motor City Hoodoo), Needed Change/Banishing (Blessed Herbal Candle), Uncrossing (Motor  City Hoodoo), Poof (Dorothy Morrison’s Wicked Witch Mojo). 

4. Star Quality Magic: This type of magic is used when you need to shine a light on yourself. It’s your own personal PR team that helps you be seen in the best way possible. You can highlight your best attributes and hide (invisibility spell) your more challenging characteristics.  Recommended: Success (Chakra Magic), Goddess (Affirmation), Wishin’ Mojo (Dorothy  Morrison’s Wicked Witch Mojo) Jasmine Energy Oil. 

5. Bo$$ Power Magic: Do you want that promotion or raise? If so, you can use Leo’s unique energy to put yourself in a favorable position with people of power and authority. This type of magic will also help you increase your finances and social standing. Recommended: Red  Stilettos (Dorothy Morrison's Wicked Witch Mojo), Prosperity (Blessed Herbal Candle), Success  (Affirmation), Honeysuckle Oil


Saturn Square Uranus Redux (Again) 

Last month, Mars and Venus got pulled into the web of the aspect of the year – Saturn square Uranus.  This month, Mercury and the Sun are up to bat! 

Saturn reflects the urge for things to remain the same, it’s safe (regardless of how dysfunctional things may be) and stable. On the other hand, Uranus craves change and has a progressive vision (albeit unformed) of the way that the world could be. Currently, these two diametrically opposed forces are at odds with one another.  

This month it gets personal as the Sun tangles with the old gods. In astrology, the Sun is our sense of being a unique individual, whereas Saturn and Uranus are concerned with collective structures and collective progress. So, it’s easy to see that the tension of individual growth and development may be overwhelmed by restrictive forces that may limit growth and collective forces that may create changes that continue to crush individual needs in favor of collective ideas and social concerns. We need to find a  way to make room for both. 

During the first part of August, it may be necessary to stand your ground when necessary and make changes for the greater good when appropriate. On a magical level, we can use the energy of Saturn and Uranus to build and secure our individual lives while letting go of areas that are no longer working,  which is probably more productive than the game of tug of war Saturn and Uranus are playing. News  Flash: We are the rope!

The New Moon this month occurs in fiery Leo on August the 8th. This New Moon is all about you. It’s a  great month to do magic and intention work that involves putting yourself in the best light. You can use this energy to get a new job, a promotion, start a new romantic relationship, or even begin new projects. So, this month do you and do it well.

Full Moon Magic 

You may get a feeling of Deja-Vu because this is our second Full Moon in Aquarius this year. So, we all get an opportunity to run this one back. 

This month’s Aquarius Full Moon happens on August 22nd. This Full Moon cycle is excellent for breaking through stagnant situations (especially karmic ones), developing better friendships, expanding your social circle, and opening yourself up to new experiences.

Weekly Breakdown 

August 2, 2021 – August 8, 2021 

The first week of August starts off with the dark cloud of the Sun oppose Saturn hanging over our heads.  It’s a low-energy day and can bring forth self-doubt and self-criticism. Take your time with projects and try to find a balance between your wants and your obligations to others. Sun opposed to Saturn can also 

make you feel isolated and alone, so reach out to your support system, if you need to. On Tuesday,  energies will shift in a more positive direction if you are willing to shake up your routine and do something new and exciting.  

Later in the week, the Sun squares Uranus. Expect the unexpected and surprising events may shake up your world. Be proactive rather than reactive. Finally, on Sunday, the New Moon occurs in Leo (See lunar magic). Make sure you set your intentions for the month ahead.

August 9, 2021 – August 15, 2021 

All the energy this week is confined to the beginning of the week with Venus oppose Neptune,  Mercury oppose Jupiter, and Mercury moving out of Leo and into Virgo. 

On Monday, Venus opposes Neptune in Pisces. You may need to take a time out and do a self-check on whether your relationship expectations are unrealistic. Sometimes we expect our partners to deliver more than they can reasonably manage, and when they fail to live up to our expectations, we become resentful and disappointed. The good news is that any short-term romantic disappointments will be replaced on Tuesday with a more optimistic view of life and a more positive mindset as Mercury opposes Jupiter.

On Wednesday, Mercury swaps signs and moves into Virgo. The devil is in the details, and you will want plenty of them. It’s a great time to focus on activities that need precision and focus.  

This weekend, the Moon moves through moody Scorpio and tangles with Saturn and Uranus.  You may feel things more intensely than you ordinarily would and unexpected change may leave you frustrated and annoyed.

August 16, 2021 – August 22, 2021 

The third week of August is the busiest week of the month with two sign changes, a Full Moon, four planetary aspects, and Uranus stationing in Taurus.

The week begins with Venus moving into her own sign of Libra, and after the onslaught of planets through the fixed signs in June, July, and the beginning of August, this is a welcome relief. While Venus is in Libra relationships will feel more centered and balanced and it will be much easier to communicate your needs. If you went through a relationship rough patch in  June and July, this would be a great time to work on the issues and move the relationships into a more harmonious space. 

Towards the middle of the week, Mercury conjoins Mars and if you need that extra boost to get things accomplished, this duo will deliver. Just keep a watch on your tongue, because you may say something you will later regret. 

This weekend, besides the Full Moon in Aquarius (see Lunar Magic) and the Sun moving into practical Virgo, Mars trines Uranus in Taurus. It’s a great weekend to break your normal habits and rituals and do something different. Let go of your inhibitions and take a risk.

August 23, 2021 – August 29, 2021 

The cosmos slows down for the final week of August with only three aspects – Venus trine  Saturn, Mercury oppose Neptune, and Mercury trine Pluto. 

On Monday, Venus in Libra trines Saturn in Aquarius. It’s a great day to sit down and look at your finances and make necessary adjustments if needed. Financial decisions that you make while this aspect is active should prove to be stable over time. Use your wise mind while 

making investments, especially since Mercury opposes confusing and deceptive Neptune on  Tuesday.  

Towards the middle of the week, Mercury trines Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury trine Pluto tells us to look beneath the surface at the inner workings of our lives. It’s a great time to be self-reflective with a deeper understanding of your choices. 

This weekend, the Moon moves through sensual Taurus. It’s a great weekend to get away to rest, luxuriate, and enjoy the finer things in life.

July2021 RetailAstroMagicLast month, Saturn formed a square (90-degree angle) to Uranus for the second time. Saturn and Uranus move slowly, they remain in technical orb for long periods and trigger easily by faster moving planets. This month the agitators will be Mars and Venus. 

The stability and structure of Saturn reflect our restrictions, limitations, and the specific rules of life and society. Contrarily, Uranus is the planet of freedom and progress. When they are squared, Uranus is concerned with smashing Saturnian order to create doorways for life to be more exciting, forward-thinking, with a view towards the future rather than the present or the past.   

When Saturn is activated we tend to get stressed and run to our tried-and-true comfort zones. When Saturn squares Uranus, one of its most apparent manifestations is that our "comfort zones" no longer work for us, often throwing us into chaos. This Saturn Uranus square is a good time to look at your "comfort zones" and decide whether they are effective. The area that needs change will become very apparent and you can either take the easy road and do it yourself, or you can take the hard road and the Saturn-Uranus square will play havoc in your life. Either way, the result is being set free. 

This month, Mars and Venus get in on the action by triggering both planets. In the case of Mars, Saturn square Uranus will work through your frustrations. Look at where you feel the most frustrated and review ways of changing it. For Venus, Saturn square Uranus works through your relationships. Are your relationships working for you? If not, you may need to disengage from them and create new connections that align with who you are now.

New Moon in Cancer: 

The peak of Cancer season occurs on July 9 with the New Moon. Now, unlike the last New Moon that was a solar eclipse, this New Moon, you are free to do whatever magic you want, so get your toolkit out; it's time to rock n' roll.  

The New Moon in Cancer is about new beginnings in Cancer's domain – home, family, security, and even fertility. It's a great time to do protection magic, financial magic, and if you want to add an addition (either through pregnancy or modifying your home), this would be an excellent New Moon to do it.

Full Moon in Aquarius: 

This month's Full Moon is in the sign of Aquarius, and in many ways, mimics the current Saturn-Uranus square configuration that is active throughout 2021. This Full Moon cycle is excellent for breaking through stagnant situations, developing better friendships, expanding your social circle, and opening yourself up to new experiences.

Weekly Breakdown: 

June 28, 2021 – July 4, 2021 

This week features two planetary aspects, but these two are quite the potent pair – Mercury opposes Saturn followed by Mars square Uranus. 

At the beginning of the week, the Moon moves through sensitive Pisces. This is a great time to work on creative projects or spiritually related activities. The Moon conjoins Jupiter on Monday, and a positive and optimistic spirit should fill the air. On Wednesday, the Moon conjoins Neptune, so expect a low energy day and focus on projects that do not require heavy lifting. 

Thursday begins a tense cycle that should last through the weekend. First up, Mars opposes Saturn. Mars-Saturn is a frustrating aspect that resembles driving with the breaks on. You may feel that outside influences are blocking you from getting what you want. Relationships may also be an issue if you are not getting your needs met. All this spills over into Saturday when Mars squares Uranus. Mars square Uranus is a highly explosive aspect. Arguments, disagreements, and the urge to break free of stagnant situations may erupt at any point, so be on guard and be as proactive as possible.  

Recommended Candles: Stability, Emotional Balance, Tranquility, Spiritual Cleansing


July 5, 2021 – July 11, 2021 

Whereas last week we only had two aspects to work with. This week we have four aspects, a New Moon in Cancer and a sign change. 

The brightest spot of the week happens on Monday when the Sun in Cancer sextiles Uranus. This aspect makes you curious, and you may find that you are interested in new things. It's a powerful time to make productive changes to create a better future because Saturn's restrictions don't influence the Sun. Use this time to connect with people you find interesting and exciting, but don't get too crazy. 

Tuesday through Friday are going to be brutal as Venus tangles with Saturn and Uranus. Relationships may be problematic, and if you feel stifled or distanced from your significant other, there may be an urge to break free. Be careful if you encounter the devil with the blue dress (or suit) on. 

Finally, this weekend, Mercury moves out of Gemini and into Cancer. Your feelings will need to be expressed, and you will understand the needs of others. Creative spontaneity may also occur with  Mercury in the sign of the crab. 

Recommended Candles: Fire/Energy and Will, Adam and Eve, Heart, Emotional Balance, and New  Moon Astro Magic

July 12, 2021 – July 18, 2021 

Once again, the second full week of July is fantastic at the start of the week, but this weekend, batten down the hatches as the Sun opposes Pluto. 

Monday brings us Mercury trine Jupiter. Mercury trine Jupiter is excellent for business negotiations,  strategy sessions, and inspiring conversations. If you need to sign contracts or secure a big deal, you should do it while this aspect is active. Mercury trine Jupiter dovetails into Venus conjunct Mars in Leo.  Although love is in the air this week, when combined with Mercury-Jupiter, expect great conversations and discussions about the future. It's a great week to plan a wedding. 

On Thursday, the Sun makes a lovely trine to Neptune in Pisces. Spiritual matters and connecting with your inner self highlight the middle of the week. You will also find that you are more empathic and sensitive to the needs of others. 

This weekend will bring out the nasties in full force as the Sun opposes Pluto. Expect intense encounters with others. Avoid trying to control situations that go awry; it will only make matters worse. 

Recommended Candles: Road Opener, Forever Mine, Clarity (Chakra Magic), Fiery Wall of Protection


July 19, 2021 – July 25, 2021 

This week is an astrological traffic jam with four planetary aspects, a Full Moon, and two sign changes. 

We start the week off with a lovely sextile between Mercury and Uranus. It's a great time to solve problems, seek answers to pressing concerns, and break away from the ordinary routine. Mercury sextile Uranus likes to discover new things, engage with new people, and feel excited by life. It's a great day for a trip to the local hangout to spend time with your crew. 

On Wednesday, Venus moves out of Leo and into Virgo. Venus is not happy with the sign of the Virgin  (for obvious reasons), and she detests being bogged down by pesky details. While Venus is in Virgo, you will need to seek intellectual stimulation from your partners, and boorish or brutish behaviors will annoy you. However, Venus in Virgo urges us to be kind to others with an extra dose of helpfulness. 

We have our second sign change on Thursday when the Sun exits Cancer and heads into Leo, the sign he rules. It's time to focus on what makes you special and unique. 

Finally, this weekend, Mercury opposes Pluto. Please pay close attention to your conversations with others because they may be laced with propaganda and hidden agendas. Avoid doing anything against your will. Also, think twice before making an impulsive decision. 

Recommended Candles: Full Moon Astro Magic, Answers (Chakra Magic), Inner Beauty, Truth and  Justice, and Jinx Removing Blessing Kit. 


July 26, 2021 – August 1, 2021 

The last week of July is interesting, with three sign changes and a challenging aspect at the end of the week. In case you have not already noticed, every weekend in July is challenging.

Mercury moves out of Cancer and joins the Sun in Leo on Tuesday. You will find that you need to express yourself to others and make your point of view known. You will notice that stories and personalized meaning will color the experiences you have. Additionally, you will have a desire to make a  personal contribution to everything you do. 

Midweek, before Mars joins Venus in Virgo (he is not happy there either), he opposes Jupiter. It's an auspicious time to put extra effort into projects because success is pretty much ensured. However,  avoid acting too rashly when making decisions because the same energy that leads you to succeed can also make you look foolish. 

Finally, this weekend, Mercury opposes Saturn in Aquarius. Push away negative thoughts as they occur and try to avoid depressing mindsets. Instead, focus on projects that need attention and detail. 

Recommended Candles: Everything and Then Some, Heart (Chakra Magic), Success, and Heart.
