A family barbecue. A sky lit with fireworks. A statue proclaiming liberty to all.

I have felt a renewed optimism this week, working on our newsletter. 

The stones and crystals have been here long before us, and will remain long after, potent talismans of solidity.

The cycles of astrology, even when dark indeed, remind us that this too shall pass, that time ebbs and flows.

Candles lit with hope can bring us through the darkness, and renew our ideals.

In the words of President Barack Obama, "The story of America's uneven, but undeniable, march forward -- our shared story --
demands a stubborn optimism."

Many blessings,

You Say You Want A Revolution:
Crystal Tricks For Radical Independence

Introducing radical change into your life is exciting and often challenging. Here is a short list of crystals that might help you ease into radical transformations.

1. Clear Quartz is the go-to crystal for radical transformation. Not only is it a powerful healer that can help clear away remnants of the past, it can also redirect painful energies into new, creative channels. If you find yourself clinging to past habits or burdensome memories, sit quietly while holding a piece of clear Quartz in your left hand and 'give' those burdens to the Quartz.

2. Morrisonite Jasper is great for helping you find a new path. If you're having trouble deciding on a direction, feeling confused or blocked, try meditating with a piece of Morrisonite Jasper in your hand. The gentle energies of this crystal can help you seek out your true path.

3. If you find yourself bored, dispirited, and uninspired, Red Jasper may help. This earthy stone provides strong grounding and reignites your passion. Sit calmly, rub the stone, and allow your imagination to roam freely!

4. Amethyst can be carried to arouse creative self-expression and to glean hidden opportunities that might otherwise go overlooked. Bring out its deeper spiritual qualities by smoking the crystal in King Solomon Wisdom incense. Carry it with you as a talisman.

5. Iron Pyrite and Malachite might help you bring in new customers and business opportunities if you're thinking about becoming self-employed. Place it in your money box or cash register, or wherever you conduct business.

6. If you're considering ending a relationship and want to protect both yourself and your soon-to-be ex partner from heartache, wear a rose quartz, a bloodstone, and a yellow kyanite in a small bag over your heart chakra as you discuss the separation.

7. Fire Opal is a very powerful stone I recommend if you want to blow away the past entirely and set a course for a totally different destiny. Smoke the stone in Blockbuster incense to bring out its fiery dragon power. Carry it with you, or wear it as a ring or amulet.

Uranus Enters Taurus: Global Changes Ahead

Uranus in Taurus
As discussed on the Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour on May 20, 2018 -- with co-hosts Catherine Yronwode and ConjureMan Ali, announcer Papa Newt, and special guest WIlliam Stickevers -- the path of Uranus through Taurus (just beginning) often brings about conditions of financial chaos.

Uranus was discovered by Sir William Herschel in 1781. Uranium, discovered in 1789, was named in its honour. Uranus has an 84 year cycle. That means it takes 84 years to circle the Sun and spends about 7 years in each sign of the zodiac.

Uranus is unlike the other planets in the Solar System. It has 27 moons and 13 rings, and instead of spinning on its axis like the other planets, it rolls along in its orbit. Symbolically, it is a bizarre planet that signals originality, eccentricity, and creativity. Above all, it is a planet associated with sudden changes. These can take the form of unexpected strokes of good luck -- or, when Uranus is badly placed, with unpredicted accidents.

Taurus is a sign noted for its stability. On a global, impersonal scale, it is a fixed Earth sign allied to concepts such as husbanding the natural wealth and resources of the land. It rules not only forestry, farming, businesses, and property management, but also the banking system, and capital financing. It promotes cautious growth and fiscal responsibility, favouring property ownership over monetary or commodity speculation. The unpredictable planet Uranus is incompatible with the ultra-fixed sign Taurus. In fact, Uranus is said to be in its "fall" or worst position possible, when in Taurus.

Wars are always a feature of global history, but during the cycles of Uranus in Taurus, wars take on a particularly nasty financial aspect, as people are stripped of property rights and may lose their previous connections to the land and thus to food sources.

Financial ups and downs always occur, but with Uranus in Taurus, new banking technologies may bring about a crisis and attempts to stabilize the banking system may not succeed well until Uranus moves on into Gemini.

Here are summaries of world events during the two previous times Uranus was in Taurus, for comparison with one another and as a guide to what we may expect this time. 

You may read more about the financial factors in play when Uranus is in Taurus, at William Stickevers' site.

Candle Spell with Rev. Sister Jacqueline!
A Candle Devotion
The month of July is when we celebrate the birthday of the United States. The Founders, or the gentlemen who wrote the articles that would become the Constitution of the United States, looked to this new land as their “mother," and felt a great sense of pride in the formation of a land where freedom for many things would be treasured and revered. The writing of the Declaration of Independence took many months, and July 4th was chosen as the birthday for America. In times past, parades and other outward symbols of patriotic pride were displayed, and more modern celebrations include barbecues and fireworks in the evening.

America was founded on the premise that a person could live the life that they wanted to make for themselves here. That premise still stands today, yet many differing opinions and thoughts on freedom have sometimes placed Americans at odds with each other. At times, one person's view of freedom encroaches on another's, causing dysfunction — even a Civil war — because of opposing views.

Still, the United States and the values that Americans hold dearly are the catalyst to make many people from around the World risk their life and limb to come to America. It is their Hope to create a life without violence and strife, political corruption and scrutiny, religious persecution and shame — the same ideals of that document signed over 242 years ago. Here is a candle devotion to the continued peace, greatness, and brotherly love that all Americans so desire.

Bible or Book of Psalms
Small paring knife, awl, screwdriver, or ritual knife
1 RED 7-day glass 'novena' style devotional candle
1 WHITE 7-day glass 'novena' style devotional candle
1 BLUE 7-day glass 'novena' style devotional candle
Lemon Juice or Florida Water
"Clarity" Anointing Oil
"Peace" or "Peaceful Home" Anointing Oil
"Attraction" Anointing Oil
White sheet of paper for you to write your desires/affirmations/prayers for unity in the United States and abundance, foresight, and forward movement for all citizens.
Optional: An item that represents America to you, such as a small Statue of Liberty, flag, eagle, or any other trinket or souvenir that reminds you of the United States.

1. Carve three holes in the form of a triangle (one on top, one to the lower left, one to the lower right) in each candle. Shake extra wax shavings out of the candle top.
2. With paper toweling, wipe down each candle with lemon juice or Florida Water. Let sit to dry.
3. Write your petition paper, remembering to include any personal names or prayers in the wording you write for the good of all United States residents.
4. Place petition paper in aluminum pie pan or oven-tempered glass baking dish (aka Pyrex or Anchor Hocking).
5. Pour a small amount of the Attraction Oil to fill each hole in the red candle.
6. Pour a small amount of the Clarity Oil to fill each hole in the white candle.
7. Pour a small amount of the Peace/Peaceful Home Oil to fill each hole in the blue candle.
8. Place the candles in a triangular position (see below) with the white candle at the apex or top of the triangle, the blue candle to the diagonal lower right from the white, and the red candle to the lower diagonal left of the white candle.

9. Pray Psalm 133 for Brotherly Love. 
10. Pray Psalm 25 for Guidance and Protection.
11. You may then end your time in prayer and meditation with personal requests.

Burn these candles in a safe location in your home or personal altar/temple room until they are finished. If you must extinguish the candles while leaving the home, please do NOT blow them out, but use a saucer over them to snuff them out or use a candle snuffer. Re-light them when you are ready to resume your devotional time.

Once the candles have finished completely, take the glass containers and toss them in the recycling can or trash. Take the petition paper and fold it into a small square and tape or tack with a push pin over inside doorway to your home, so that all who enter your home come in peace and with brotherly love for you and your loved ones.
