7. LUCIFER 

Sun God or God of Light, his name means light-bearer. He was angelic or faerie like having either butterfly or dove wings. He is THE elusive butterfly of love. Timid, fragile and reclusive.

Baphomet oil is as complicated as the god, and is made in a Waning/Waxing Moon combo process. The intent of this oil is to create balance to dissolve past karmic associations and to bring about manifestation, so it is excellent to use in meditation, ritual and ceremonial magick.

Mabon Blessings

The theme for Mabon and the Autumn equinox is "Giving Thanks". Mabon is the Witch's Thanksgiving, this is a time where the Sun's path crosses over the equator, traveling south. We now celebrate the darkness as the whole world honors equal night and day. The summer is gone. This was the time when the ancients and our ancestors gathered fruits and vegetables from the gardenin preparation for the winter. this is a time to give away what welonger need. We now must reap what we have sown from the spring equinox. Many people find this to be the perfect time for storing their own fruits and vegetables by canning, pickling, and other storing methods . With the fall comes cooler, crisp air and the dulling of colors. Everything is now turning with the season, there is a restlessness in the air and the harvest moon is round and almost wheat colored, glowing from the sun.

The flaming color of the leaves is a reminder that life burns most intensely just before it dies. Mabon is the time where we can reflect and remember those friends and relatives who may have died in the past year,as we watch the falling leaves. We give thanks for the abundance in our lives, as the sun is about to enter Libra, the cardinal air sign of balance.

"We celebrate the time of lengthening darkness when the night equals the day by putting to rest all the activities of the summer." R. Barrett

Restoring Balance with the Libra New Moon

The metamorphic Libra New Moon occurring October 8th, aligns with the perpetual nurturer asteroid Ceres, prosperous fixed star Boötis, while sharing frustrating aspects with both transformative Pluto and illusive Neptune (who is still moving backwards in its retrograde journey). To top it all off, the planetary ruler of Libra, Venus, is moonwalking in the sign of Scorpio (heading backwards to Libra). 

With all the chaotic, dramatic, and intense energy permeating the air, we are all called upon by the universe to release and break free from the shackles and constraints of society. As we release toxic relationships, fears, and self doubt, we may feel mentally taxed. While there is glory and gratification in challenging the norms of society and status quo—it can make us feel energetically drained and in desperate need to clean our auric field. 

While we nurture society, by fighting for our political and personal beliefs, we need to remember to take care of ourselves as well. Restoring inner balance by practicing self care during these unpredictable and uncertain times can help us feel aligned and centered, focused, and ready to take on the injustices of the world.

Tea of Dreams for The Harvest Moon

The Harvest Moon is a celebration of past efforts, serving as the culmination of the past year, as it’s time to pick crops for the new season. Falling close to the Autumnal Equinox, the Harvest Moon is the first Full Moon of the season, creating abundance, as we reap the benefits of our past efforts. Change is in the crisp autumn air, as we honor Mother Earth for her laborious work in cultivating fruits, grains, and vegetables for all living beings. 

With the Moon in the sign of fiery Aries, we must consider our innermost passions during this luminary, focusing on implementing change and growth for the new season. The Harvest Moon awakens our dreams and inspirations, forcing us to let go of past fears and move towards individuality. Luna serves to wake us up, as a response to the ever-changing world, the spark to initiate the new version of the past vision, allowing us to plan the future. 

Before moving forward, enjoy the fruits of your past labors during the Harvest Moon, by ingesting power and magic, as you become one with your intentions. Enjoy a spicy tea blend which will awaken your senses and exhilarate your mind, as you manifest your seasonal goals. Use Pepper and Ginger to ignite the passion of Mars (the planetary ruler of Aries), Cloves to purify and cleanse, Pumpkin Seeds and Mandarin Peels for abundance, and Tea Leaves for courage, under the orange glow of the Harvest Moon.
