Attract Good Luck and Protection From The Full Moon
By Dikki-Jo Mullen
Connecting with and honoring the Moon has long been an important part of witchcraft. Often making this connection is called drawing down the Moon. On the nights just before and exactly on the Full Moon when moonlight is shining bright in the sky, gaze at her. Focus on what you wish and when you sense the energy chant:
“I call to the Moon when she is round, all that is good will now abound. Always from danger and problems free, as my will so mote it be!”
Think about the Moon’s influence affecting your life in a good way as you go to sleep. Wellness and peace will be present as you awaken the next morning.
Check the Moon Calendar below on this web site or use any regular calendar to find the date of the Full Moon each month.
If you repeat this on or just before each Full Moon then the powerful magic of the Moon’s aid will grow stronger, gradually bringing more and more of all that is good into your life.

Book Stack Charm For Success With Studies
Bless Your Desk
By Dikki-Jo Mullen
Here is how to make a good luck charm to place on your desk or study area at home to help with studies of any kind, either for personal enrichment or for help with school work and grades.
You will need
Two or three old and inexpensive or free hard back books (check a used book store or find some old books that aren’t useful and read any longer at home). Select books of different sizes.
A length of ribbon in a color you like. Make it long enough to go around the stack of books and tie into a bow
Glue (Elmer’s Glue -All Multi Purpose or a similar craft glue is good)
Beads, sequins, stickers, buttons, etc. for decoration
Paint and a small paint brush (gold is a good color)
This spell is most powerful when done on a Wednesday or Saturday.
First protect your work space by covering it with old newspapers or a piece of plastic and assemble your supplies.
To begin glue the books shut, then stack them and glue them all together. It looks good to stagger the stack a little. Place the largest book at the bottom and the smallest at the top.
Next brush the top book with paint to cover the title and create a nice surface to decorate.
If desired lightly paint the spines of the books to cover any words, or if the printing is old and interesting leave the spines as is. Let the paint and glue dry.
Next decorate the top book with beads, stickers, buttons, tiny crystals, etc. that appeal to you. Finish the project and seal the spell by tying a ribbon around the books. Concentrate on your goals with regard to your studies as you tie the bow. Place the stack on your desk or study area at home as a paperweight and decoration. The ancient wisdom of books and libraries and the learning experiences of students in past generations is invoked here. The vast knowledge of the universe comes across time and space to bring you aid and support.

By Dikki-Jo Mullen
Sadly beloved former First Lady Barbara Bush has just passed away of congestive heart failure on April 17, 2018 as Saturn is turning retrograde. She was 92, almost 93 years of age. Born Barbara Pierce on June 8, 1925 at 7pm EDT in Rye, New York, she was a descendant of President Franklin Pierce as well as being one of only two women in history to be both the wife and mother of a United States President. Astrologers, her horoscope is intriguing. Taking a glance at her natal horoscope, she had a Sagittarius ascendant, The Sun, Mercury and Venus in Gemini, the Moon and Jupiter (retrograde) in Capricorn, Uranus in Pisces, Neptune and the N. Moon Node in Leo, Saturn in Scorpio (retrograde), Mars and Pluto in Cancer. Her work with education, her humor, her trademark cleverness with words, are reflected in the Gemini placements. The Mars-Pluto conjunction in Cancer reveals a tremendous strength of will regarding family life and patriotism. The Moon-Jupiter conjunction suggests high standards, ethics and quality. The 7th house of her birth chart, the relationship sector, is very active. She was just 20 years old in 1945 when she married George Bush. They were married for over 70 years. At her passing on April 17, 2018 transit Mars in Capricorn was almost exactly conjunct her Moon. Transit Mars also was oppose her natal Mars and Pluto in Cancer in her natal 8th house, the sector which has a bearing on death. Mars often figures prominently in the event charts of deaths. Hail and Farewell to this great American lady

The Astrology of Chakras
Your Guide to Inner Space
The Seven Interior Stars
By Dikki-Jo Mullen
“When she told me she was quitting the job, just like that, I felt as if she’d thrown a brick right into my stomach.”
My friend was talking about a problem he’d had at work that day and describing a feeling that many of us experience. It is of having the wind knocked out of us following sudden bad news or other upset.
The human body is a delicately balanced interweaving of different energies. When events take place which upset this balance we may feel the need to gasp for breath, gulp away the lump in our throats or cope with dizziness or even feeling the start of a sudden headache. This is to adjust internal energy centers within our energy body, often called the electric or subtle body.
In the Eastern spiritual tradition these sensitive parts of the body are called chakras, a Sanskrit word meaning wheels. They are illustrated as whorls of energy relating to the glandular system. They also relat to the colors of the rainbow as well as the Sun and Moon coupled with the visible planets as used by early astrologers. Through developing an awareness of your chakras and using a system of music and color meditations to balance them, New Age thought teaches that your health and well being can be greatly enhanced. The chakras extend from the base of the spine to the top of the head. There are several systems of identification with the colors, planets and musical notes. Here is the one most popular among contemporary metaphysical practitioners.
Chakra * Color * Musical Note * Planets * Signs * Glands *
1. Base * Red * C natural * Saturn, Uranus, * Aquarius, Capricorn * Gonads
2. Sacral * Orange * D * Jupiter, Neptune * Sagittarius, Pisces * Adrenals
3. Solar Plexus * Yellow * E * Mars, Pluto * Scorpio, Aries * Pancreas, Liver
4. Heart * Green * F * Venus * Taurus, Libra * Thymus, Heart
5. Throat * Blue * G * Mercury * Gemini, Virgo * Thyroid
6. Third Eye * Indigo * A * Moon * Cancer * Pituitary
7. Crown * White, Violet * B natural * Sun * Leo * Pineal

The First Chakra is located at the base of the spine. The color red and the physical energy are centered here. It correlates with the gonads and can be out of balance when there’s listlessness or security relate troubles. It corresponds with the musical note C natural. Astrologically the Saturn and Uranus energies are anchored here. They refer to the security base as well as to the different social situations we must deal with. Seed sound is Lam.
The Second Chakra is positioned at the navel area, just below the stomach. The adrenal glands relate to it. So does the color orange, musical note D natural, and the planets Jupiter and Neptune. It has a bearing on creativity and links to reproduction. Frustration stemming from an inability to express oneself can relate to problems centered here. Jupiter relates to growth and Neptune to inspiration. Seed sound is Vam.
The Third Chakra is at the solar plexus, just below the heart. It corresponds to the pancreas and liver. Will power, discipline, being centered within society are tied to its function. The color is yellow, musical note is E, the planets are Mars and Pluto. Competition, motivation and a sense of authority are its influences. Seed sound is Ram.
The Fourth Chakra is located at the heart and relates to the thymus gland. The color is green, the musical note is F and the planet is Venus. The circulatory system, immune system, love and heart action are felt here. If frustrated love isn’t resolved , it can manifest eventually as heart trouble. Venus is the strongest love indicator in the chart. Good manners and refinement are linked to this chakra. Seed sound is Yam.
The Fifth Chakra is positioned at the throat. Its color is blue and the musical note is G. The thyroid gland, lungs and voice relate to it. It’s the most sensitive to stress. The speechless quality, a catch in the throat most of us experience at times relates to an imbalance here. This chakra relates to Mercury, the communicator. It translates the actions of the mind into words. It also links to the will. Seed sound is Ham.
The Sixth Chakra is located at the brow, the third eye in the center of the forehead. It corresponds to the color indigo and the musical note A. Astrologically it relates to the Moon. Emotions, psychic perceptions, sensitivity, the subconscious and dreams are all part of its functions. The pituitary gland and central nervous system are related to this chakra. Memory and the senses in general as well as visionary ability have a connection here too. Seed sound is Om.
The Seventh Chakra is positioned atop the head at the crown. It corresponds to the Sun and the musical note B. White and violet are the colors. The pineal gland, higher consciousness, upper brain and integration of the whole being are tied in here. The seventh chakra is said to be the door to the divine, to spiritual awakening and awareness. Seed sound is the silent Om.
Now … take a moment to rub your hands together as if they are cold. Pull the palms slowly apart facing each other. Relax the fingers, pull the hands apart slightly. Move them around. Can you feel an energy flow, or a force field, like a magnetic current? You probably can unless you’re very tired today. If you’re near someone else feel his or her energy by placing your hands near, but not touching, that person. Call this the vibes, aura, etc. It’s the subtle energy we all have. Mystics call it the energy field of the subtle body. Illustrations of angels or saints will show it as a halo. Medical science recognizes it as that weight loss of about 6 ounces which can be recorded at death.
Next … hold your hands over each of your chakras. Move them around. Do you feel a healing or comforting sensation? Place a crystal in each hand and repeat the experiment. You can balance your chakras after an upsetting experience this way. A daily meditation on the colors, the Sanskrit seed sounds and musical notes can help you to stay in balance. This will have a positive impact in the long run on your well being.
Now go a step further …. Think about the current astrological transits in relation to your own birth chart. Are you going through a Saturn square or maybe a Mars opposition? Cope by focusing on the chakra relating to Mars or Saturn. Treat it with color, music and or a crystal. You’ll gradually flow with th celestial currents much more easily. Since early times enlightened beings have been able to rise above difficulties by transmuting the energies like this. Now you can begin to do the same. The human body is like a microcosm or little world. It reflects the vastness of space, the greater world, the universe around us. Understanding this subtle interplay of energies to keep your chakras in balance will become a valuable tool to enhance your quality of life. Give it a try.
As indicated the 12 zodiac signs and the planets all have places within the chakra system. Although the original teaching developed before the discovery of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, modern astrologers have assigned them their proper positions. Each planet and zodiac sign falls somewhere in your birth chart. The chakras, body parts and glands they energize are the key to chakra attunement. Think about all of the key words for each astrological factor. How do they apply to the machinery of your body?
Near the time of the Full Moon each month the chakras are more active. If you see auras or have had other clairvoyant experiences you might be able to see them. Spiritual healers will often open or close chakras during a treatment. The chakras have been described as flowers which open and close; just as flowers open and close at sunrise and sunset . Try having a treatment with a healer who works with the chakras to experience this. This will be helpful in keeping your own chakras in balance.
