It's Tiu's Day - Mars Day - the Day of Activity and Physicality, Passion and Desire. There are minor magickal energies for rites/spells for courage.  Is there something going on in your life that you need courage to face?

Healthy Witch Tip of the Day -

Scramble your breakfast - People who ate eggs in the morning instead of a bagel consumed 264 fewer calories the rest of the day according to a Saint Louis University study. That's because protein is more filling than carbs.   This will be my last Virgo healthy tip - the sun tomorrow evening will enter the Cardinal Air sign of Libra as we experience the Autumn Equinox.  But continue to be aware of what you eat to make you a healthy witch.

Water Meditation

The  Equinox marks the midpoint of Autumn which is the season associated with the Element of Water, the one of our feelings and emotions; and is one of the hardest to come to terms with.  Your feelings, whatever they are, are yours, and are not easy to control. There can be no 'wrong' emotions or feelings. However,  what we can control is how we express our feelings and whether we let them get in the way of our lives. To help us it is often a good idea to take a little time to explore our feelings, to 'wallow' in them as our mothers used to say..  On this eve before Autumn Equinox with a Pisces moon transit, this is a good time to do a Water Meditation.
   Reserve the bathroom for a quiet time when you will not be disturbed. Decorate it attractively, with blue candles, incense, or burning oils, and perhaps even flowers. Run a warm bath and add a few sprigs of Lavender, Thyme, Chamomile, and Jasmine; tie them into a clean flannel if you don't want bits floating around you. Also add about 1/2 teaspoonful of blue food coloring to the water. Take with you 2 palm-sized stones, one dark and one light in color. Completely immerse yourself 3 times. Then take the stones, one in each hand. Close your eyes and think through the things you feel strongly about in your life. As you hold the stones, place the negative parts in the dark stone and the positives in the lighter colored stone. After you have filed your emotions in this way immerse yourself 3 more times. Later, place the light stone in a prominent place, and bury the dark one deep in the ground to take away the negativity.
