Since Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, those born under this sign, between April 20th and May 21st, are sensual and often make great lovers. In the non-romantic sense, they are devoted to their friends and family and can be very generous.
At work, Taurus will go the extra mile without seeking the glory. Naturally thrifty, they’re the perfect person to manage money and accounts. This doesn’t mean Taureans are boring accountants in khakis!
Taurus has a gift for fashion and creative endeavors and can often be found in the world of haute couture, as well as in the ranks of famous musicians (among them Bono, Stevie Wonder, and Adele.) Fields such as architecture and music management are perfect for the Bull, who appreciates a blend of the practical and indulgent. Read the rest of this entry »
I have been an avid student of Edgar Cayce’s work since my youth. My advice to the younger generation, as well as newcomers of all ages who are interested in metaphysics and psychic phenomena: please read about Edgar Cayce. He is the most documented psychic in history. Study his material; much has been written about him.
Edgar Cayce was born in 1877 and came from a southern Protestant background. He studied the Bible and displayed psychic and mediumship abilities from a young age. He could talk to his deceased grandfather at the age of seven. He was lucky enough to have an open-minded mother, who recognized and nurtured her son’s special gifts. Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes human behavior and events on Earth feel utterly unfathomable. But, everything can be deciphered. Just a few weeks ago, something seemingly unfathomable came to pass once more. Andreas Lubitz stepped onboard German Wings flight 9525 with a very clear intention – to destroy himself and everyone else on that plane. He succeeded.
Who was Lubitz? What on earth was going on within him? Was it possible to calculate the risk that he represented? Could this event have been predicted? Was it even possible to determine when he would take action? I believe Astrology offers answers. Read the rest of this entry »
I love you. I love you, and you, and you! No matter what happened yesterday. No matter what was said, what was done, how we hurt one another, I still love you.
Three simple words. Really, love shouldn’t be so hard. Since my childhood my goal in life was always to show love. Before money, before “common sense”, before logical reasoning of life, my heart always took the lead. Believe me, this trait has led to much criticism over the years. Many people have considered me eccentric, crazy, even downright stupid. Yet, throughout the years, I learned to like myself and to accept others. Read the rest of this entry »
Anyone thinking of practicing magic should become familiar with a variety of plants and flowers. It is also a good idea to have a few favorites around the house.
Flowers speak to us. There is a good reason celebrations from birth to death, and everything in between, are synonymous with flowers. If you don’t know a Daisy from a Dogwood, here’s a look at some of the more familiar blooms and what they magically represent: Read the rest of this entry »
Possibly no other spiritual or religious icon in our culture is as misunderstood as the pentacle, or five-pointed star. Many people automatically believe the pentacle is connected to some form of darkness, evil or satanic worship. This could not be further from the truth.
Along with its powerful symbolism in Wicca and other pagan traditions, the pentacle also has roots in Christian and Jewish mysticism, as well as Native American religion.
Over the centuries the symbol has taken on many meanings. Its most lasting symbolism, however, is that of the five classical elements: Earth, Fire, Air, and Water, with Spirit at its head. Read the rest of this entry »
Valentine’s Day, that many people all over the world celebrated recently, has its origins in the pagan rituals of the past. This is in fact true of many of our modern holidays. But how did we get our modern-day Valentine’s cards, Cupids, and hearts?
In ancient Rome, the festival of Lupercalia was annually held on February 15th. As with similar Roman holidays, such as Ostara, this was a time to celebrate fertility and love. The deities honored were Lupercus, patron of shepherds, Juno, goddess of marriage, and Pan, another fertility god.
In a custom which survives in another form today, young men would randomly draw the names of eligible women from a jar or urn. Whether or not they exchanged flowers and candy is more debatable. It is also interesting to note that Cupid, the son of the love goddess Venus, was not originally linked specifically with this festival, even though he is associated with it today.
