And MiShala asks:
Although these situations are different, the questions are basically the same. Patty and MiShala want to know if they will recieve bad karma for doing a spell to hinder another or to break up others. In these cases and other situations, often a spell seems negative but it is being used for the purpose of protection. Witches are ALLOWED to protect themselves and even encouraged to do so. Of course if you view what you are doing as evil, then the unconscious will accept it as such and you will probably end up punishing yourself in one way or another. You must approach these rituals with strength and the positive intention of protecting yourself or others (in one of these cases she is attempting to protect a helpless child)! In this way, you will create a 3 fold or perhaps even 10 fold return of protection for yourself. The law of return is always in effect and will reflect upon whatever energies we send out. As long as you keep the emphasis and intention on protection and shielding of yourself and your loved ones, you will not be harmed. Good luck and good magick.

Yellow is the color of the Sun. It represents warmth, stability, fame, long lasting love, health, and happiness. Yellow can also be used in visualization to energize and calm fears. Like the Sun, it burns away the 'greyness' of the day. Yellow is also a fun color and sacred to Bast the Egyptian cat goddess. Yellow is the color of intellect and can help improve your memory. A yellow candle can be burned with prayers (or magic seals) to bring forth any of the above mentioned qualities. Best day to burn yellow candles is on Sundays and Wednesdays.
Incase you don't know about this, Mo of It's a Blog Eat Blog World is running this meme. Check out his site on Sunday nights to see the word of the week for Manic Monday. It's a great way to connect with other bloggers as well as a creative incentive to write. (Yellow is also the color of inspiration!)

This week begins with many festive events. It is a new moon and the Chinese New Year of the prosperous pig. Tomorrow is the culmination of Mardi Gras, a festival celebrated around the world that finds its roots in the ancient pagan Roman holiday of Lupercalia (and also influenced by Saturnalia). Along with celebrating the great God Pan and his Satyrs, Bacchus and Venus, today we are also celebrating the morgEpalooza or 40th birthday of fellow blogger Morgen of It's a Blog Eat Blog World. Mo actually started this Manic Monday meme and if you would like to participate, visit his blog every Sunday to find the word of the week. That's right, this week it is celebrate! Well, MO and all you birthday boys and girls, we witches have our own special traditions for solar returns. Instead of blowing out a candle and making a wish, we LIGHT a candle and make a birthday wish. It is also customary to eat sunflower seeds - 3x the number of your age to grant you good health and long life! While we're at it, let's take a look at Mo's day today. Below are his personal astrological transits. The transits refer to the current movement of the planets. By looking at how they interact with our own planets, we can see a unique astrology reading for each and every one of us. This is much more thorough than the astrology you read in the paper or online that is based on your Sun sign alone.
Mo's Transits Feb 19, 2007
Transit SUN conjoined natal Sun
Congratulations, MO! It is the beginning of another birthday year for you. Since the planetary patterns influencing your life and affairs will be different in any given year you do not always have the same feelings and attitudes every time your birthday rolls around. No matter what the circumstances happen to be however, you can take advantage of the positive potential of each birthday by making it a special time for renewing inner energy and vitality, and your faith in yourself as an individual. Reflect on what the past has taught, look forward to where you would like to be in the future, and above all, adopt the attitude and determination that you will meet and overcome every challenge that the future holds.
Transit Mars sextile natal Neptune
This is a period to look for opportunities that expand your spiritual and artistic awareness and allow you to develop and use your intuitive abilities. Taking advantage of the people and situations you encounter under this influence, may lead to more mundane opportunities including a chance to go swimming, fishing, sailing, or dancing. Depending on your particular interests and the nature of circumstances at this time, your efforts may mean eventual success in activities that involve such areas as promotion, photography, magic, illusion, oil or gas industries, charitable institutions, bankruptcy proceedings, art and entertainment. The only problem you encounter during this period may be in distinguishing genuine opportunities from false or misleading promises. Be as astute as you can under the circumstances.
Transit MARS opposed natal Jupiter
It is easy to imagine the probable result of blowing up a balloon beyond its capacity. This image is also the easiest description of the circumstances you are likely to encounter during this period. There is a tendency to assume you are capable of far greater abilities than a more honest estimation would suggest-- or, knowing full well your real limitations, it may be a case of your simply giving in to some external pressure or temptation and allowing others to make such inflated assumptions of your capabilities-- either way, you are left trying to accomplish the impossible. Under this influence actions are likely to go too fast and too far. It is in your best interests to remember that there is more than a little potential for unpleasant results if you experience too much of a good thing. This is not an auspicious time for court decisions, traveling abroad, higher education, writing, publishing, and participating in competitive sports. Physical efforts are either totally paralyzed by laziness and unwise actions, or they proceed with such extreme force as to invite dangerous consequences. Spirituality can turn into fanaticism, and intellectuality can become arrogant displays of superiority. Save grandstanding and bravado for another time.
Transit VENUS conjoined natal Saturn
It can be difficult to admire beauty for its own sake during this period. It isn’t that you lack appreciation for the things or people that catch your eye. It is more likely to be a case of also realizing there are responsibilities and commitments that accompany these attractive visions. Under this influence you are most appreciative of beauty that is traditional, structured, and orderly, or perhaps it’s just your appreciation for the intrinsic harmony of tradition, structure and order that is enhanced. If not ordinarily inclined to lead a neat or organized existence, this may be one time when you appreciate the necessity of having some order in your life. Your participation in social events and fun activities is apt to be more enthusiastic if they happen to serve some purpose in addition to the prospect of enjoyment; a combination of business and pleasure. If there is no one new you care to meet and nothing you care to do, you may prefer to either remain alone or in the company of those who do have a purpose in your life.
Transit SUN trine natal Moon
Circumstances promote pride and emotional satisfaction in home, children, and other family members. Female relationships are particularly meaningful, and a woman may provide valuable assistance. Under this influence your emotional level is high, and your intuition right on target. An excellent time to initiate artistic and other creative activities, get started with domestic projects, and enthusiastically take care of any matters that are related to children, women, or a new venture. Disappointments that do occur under this influence are apt to have a way of eventually working out to your advantage.
Transit PLUTO square natal Saturn
This long-term influence is likely to bring difficult but not insurmountable circumstances, the nature of which involves overcoming those with more power than your own, situations that involve a new start or regaining something that was lost, or dealing with the threatened loss of your own power or influence. The past becomes significantly important to the present as well as the future. If you refused to accept the necessary restrictions and limitations that were necessary for progress to be made, this becomes a time to regret your past resistance and correct your attitude. Self-discipline plays a major role. Abuse of authority in the past will have to be confronted and corrected. Ambitions must be tempered with patience and control. Obstacles may challenge your right to the rewards of age and experience, hard work and sacrifice, and the traditions and structures that support your life-style.
Transit SUN trine natal Mars
The positive energy and vitality that accompanies this influence favors all your physical efforts, the only drawback being that it also promotes a tendency for laziness. Lacking sufficient aggressiveness or the competitive spirit, you may see no necessity for taking advantage of favorable circumstances that are at hand. Avoiding the potential for indolence or a too passive attitude will net ample dividends. Superiors are impressed with your work. Male relationships and dealing with men or masculine products are favored. An excellent time to get a hair cut, attend or participate in sporting events, engage in open confrontation. If other factors do not negate the fortunate influence of this period, this is the best time to undergo surgery or dental work.
Transit MARS sextile natal Venus
Opportunities that may lead to romance, social activities, partnership, and joint ventures are potentials implied by this period. There is no guarantee that such potentials will automatically come your way. Success is more likely to be the result of deliberately putting yourself in situations that generate such opportunities. This favorable influence encourages you to help others attain their goals, and in return, you will be able to ask for their assistance in your own efforts. Legal matters, contract negotiations, enhancement of your physical appearance, and artistic projects may eventually be successful as a result of opportunities offered by present circumstances.
Go and visit the celebrated Mo today and wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I have received another email from KW. Some of you may remember her Dilemma. Here is the latest report.
Message: My partner, J with whom I own a condominium with has left me for another woman! Remember I wrote to you about my ex-husband and you did a reading on your blog? Well she left. What should I do? Is it worth trying to get her back (we've been off and on for 10 years) 2 years on - 3 off - 5 on and now this! I've been crazy and I don't know if it's fear of the unknown; fear that she will screw me or really that I do care about her. We haven't been getting along but my brother attempted suicide last year and I've been numb to the relationship. I don't think she will want to go to counseling. And I know she is smoking alot of pot. Help!
According to the Tarot, this may be a blessing in disguise. One of the things the Tarot points out is that this is not the FIRST TIME she has been unfaithful to you. Her leaving has been your secret wish, so why not let her go and make room for someone better? Pay attention though as she is not beneath screwing you over financially. However, I may be picking up on something else. A business partner or family member that you have unresolved financial issues with. I suggest burning green and blue candles anointed with rosemary oil to protect your income, property and inheritance.
You had asked in an earlier post if your ex husband would ever leave his current wife. Doubtful, but even if he does, that doesn't mean it will work for the two of you. You had also asked which would bring you a more fulfilling relationship. My answer is NEITHER ONE!
The Tarot points out that the REAL issue here is not with J or your ex husband. It is with your brother. You will need to make a decision before the summer about how to deal with him. You cannot do it alone. Another family member or perhaps an institution will need to step in and take some of this burden off your hands. You are not equipped emotionally or financially to handle it. You are going to go on a trip and then I see a younger man or a sweet butch, probably a Pisces coming into your life. The Tarot encourages you to let go of the past and make room for this wonderful new beginning.
An added personal thought: It sounds like you've had more than your share of grief, mourning, and disappointment in the past year. You are in the long hard winter of your life. Be aware that this weekend is the New Moon, the Chinese New Year and the Mardi Gras. There are other cultures as well that have celebratory holidays in this season. It is time to throw off the shackles of winter and welcome the Spring. (even if it hasn't yet arrived!) Let loose, throw on your party beads and DANCE! Find SOMETHING to celebrate in your life. If you can do this, you will align yourself with the seasonal energies and be able to throw off the cold and desolate that surrounds you. It may seem as if she's DUMPED you, but this could just as easily be your window of opportunity to dump your bad luck and unhappiness for a better life. Welcome the unknown, I believe it will be more fulfilling than all your knowns!

"The story of Valentine's Day begins in the third century with an oppressive Roman emperor and a humble Christian Martyr. The emperor was Claudius II.
This great story was sent to my by friend and fellow psychic Louis.
Louis is available for Tarot cards, Tea Leaves, Flower Readings and Handwriting Analysis.
He is New Yorks' #1 Professional Flower Reader. That sounds like a great kind of reading to get for Valentine's Day!
*As pagans, we will not forget the sacred fertility rites of Pan. Any woman wanting to conceive or ease the pain of childbirth must receive some lashes from a whip or scourge dipped in goat's milk.
Sunday, February 11, 2007
Valentine's Day is coming up and I really like this guy. I read a spell in a book that said I could create a potion and mix it into his drink so that he will fall in love with me. Right now we are just friends and he is well, kind of flirting with this other girl in our class. What should I do? And do you think that love potion thing will work?
Good luck and may Cupid's SPIKED arrow strike his heart with love for you.

How are you, sis?
Say, I wonder what are the correspondences for drawing more clients to get tarot readings. I'm thinking the emperor card …but I'm not sure, never done a spell for that.What is working for you usually:)?
Thank you sweetheart
In conclusion, my dear Ruby, the best card I suggest you use is...
GIVE IT OUT WHERE EVER YOU GO!!!
You are The Devil
Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession
The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.
Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

Imbolc is one of the four greater Sabbats of the Witches. On Imbolc we ask the Goddess Bridgid to bring inspiration into our lives. It is also a Full Moon in Leo. Leo rules all matters of the heart. It is also the sign of theatre, showmanship, and being before the public eye. Here and now is the place and time to summon up your passion, creativity, and dramatic flair. Make a wish if you dare!
All witches know that on the Full Moon
the Goddess will grant us each a boon.
