    There are Major magickal energies today for Health and Healing spells and rites.  The moon being in the sign of Virgo can a little boost to your workings on these issues.  Also today - Sun Day - is a day of Intent, Creation and Renewal, so use these daily energies to add to your rites.  For instance, how about a spell or rite for a Renewal of Health/Healing...

Making Magickal Candle Holders

   Making your own candle holders is relatively inexpensive and this technique can be used to create magickally enhanced one specific to your spell. You will need to buy some modelling clay which dries in the air or the oven, rather than the kind requires a kiln. This is usually available from art shope and even some toy stores. You will also need a flat surface or baking tray if your clay is oven bake, covered with some aluminium foil. For each candle break a lump about the size of an egg and roll it into a ball between your palms. Place it onto the foil firmly, so that it flattens on the base. Push your candle into the center of the top to create a hole which is exactly the right size for your candle, removing the candle immediately.

    At this point you can decorate the holder with symbols to represent the person you are working for, perhaps their Sun Sign, initials or even a sketch of them; symbols representing the nature of the spell; leaves and flowers for fertility; a book to represent successful study, and so on. Cocktail sticks are use for making fine lines in the still moist clay. If the clay is air drying you could also press into it gemstones, feathers, leaves, or seeds with the appropriate attributions to enhance a spell.  Once the clay has been dried, following the instructio9ns on the packet, you can paint your holder and perhaps even glue further additions on to it.

Tomorrow's Full Moon which happens at 10:25PM EDST, is the First Wishing Moon of this year.  A Wishing Moon is on a Full Moon closest to the sabbats. They are occasions for planning the goals of the comming quarter and assessing the results of the quarter past. ["Seasons of the Witch Primer"].. This Full Moon is in the Cardinal Air Sign of Libra.  With the weather system moving through my area I more than likely won't be able to see the Full Moon in the sky so I will be using visualization techniques to see the moon in my mind and I will probably add a visual image of the moon to my observances of the Full Moon.
