    There are Major magickal energies for Money, Status and Material Needs today - Thursday is Jupiter's Day and is the Day of Vision, Spiritual Insight and Expansion....  The moon is expanding and is entering the Cardinal Earth Sign of Capricorn.  After experiencing Sagittarius' adventurous energy the past couple of days, now we need to accept that it is time to pay attention to our needs for security, duties, obligations, drives and ambtions. This is a good time for setting and achieving goals, 'going for it' materially.  But even while we are feeling persistent and ambitious, this is a bad time to ask or obtain anything from patriarchal and established authorities as they are experiencing a slowed down desire regarding energy.   Also take this moon transit as a time to non-traditional healing - Capricorn is the sign of the medicine woman. This moon transit will last until 10:04PM on Saturday....

  An Herbal Candle Spell for Abundance and Health

From Ellen Dugan's "Book of Witchery"

Thursday's herbs are: Honeysuckle, Cinquefoil, Mint, Maple Tree, Oak Tree
The Colorsd assosiated with Thursday are green and royal blue. Royal Blue
is the traditional color associated with Jupiter. Green is a popular shade with
magick users, as it represents the earth and nature. Today, (Thursday), green
in its many shades is often utilized in prosperity and healing spells.

So let's combine the herbal information with the color and candle information for
Thursday spell. You will need a few specific supplies for the this spell, but the
plants are common and easy to locate. You may not have to look very far - maybe not
further than your own backyard.

  • 2 deep blue votive candles (you can switch to purple) 
  • 2 green votive candles 
  • 4 votive cups 
  • A lighter or mnatches 

  • A spring of honeysuckle (flower or foliage) 
  • A few leaves of fresh mint 
  • A small custer of fresh pine needles 
  • A 6 x 6-inch square of green or blue fabric 
  • A 12-inch piece of ribbo9n (try a Jupiter color) to tie the fabric up into a charm bag
  • A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell
Arrange the candles in their holders in a neat circle. Next, lay the foilage on the inside of the
candle ring. Take your time and make this look as festive as you can; just make sure to keep the
herbal ingredients will away from the flames. Then ground and center yourself, and repeat the
following spell three times:

"Juipter's bright colors are in these candles four
Money and abundance they will bring to my door
Add some mint, pine and honeysuckle to this Witch's spell
I call for health and prosperity and all will be well."

Now I want you to imagine yourself surrounded by a bright blue-green halo of light.
Envision that this light protects you, encourages healing, promotes, abundance, and
invites prosperity into your life. Hold this imagery in place for a few moments.

Close the spell with this line:

"For the good of all, with harm to none.
By color and herb, this spell is done!"

Let the candles burn until they go out on their own. When the candles are finished, the herbs
will be empowered and ready to go.l Tuck the herbal ingredients into the center of the blue-green
cloth, and then gather up the edges. Tie the bundle closed with the ribbon. Ta-da! Instant charm bag!

Keep the prosperity charm bag with you, in your pocket or purse, for one week. If you care to
re-empower the charm bag, repeat the spell on the following Thursday. Just place the bag in
the center of the candle ring, and you're good to go.
{Hmmm, this is interesting, next Thursday (Thor's Day) is Thanksgiving and is the
Feast of Fortuna  - this makes it a Major Power Day.}
