Tips for novice witches: the third-eye chakra

The next chakra that I will discuss in my chakra series is the sixth chakra named the third-eye chakra. The third-eye chakra is sometimes named the brow chakra. This location of the third-eye chakra is at the center of your body. It is above your eye-brows. The third-eye chakra affects your intuition, your perception, your clairvoyance, and your pre-cognition.

The flow of energy that is in the third-eye chakra moves in an anti-clockwise direction. It connects to the higher mental auric body. This chakra also regulates the pituitary glands, your eyes, your nose, and your sinuses.

The third-eye chakra is connected to wisdom, inspiration, and knowledge. It is also connected to your intuition and to your imagination.

If you have too much energy in the third-eye chakra, then, that means that you will be greatly affected by the spiritual or the psychic world. If you have too much energy in this chakra, then, you will feel “un-grounded.” You will be disorganized, disoriented, or “space-y.”

If you do not have enough energy in the third-eye chakra, then, you will be a narrow-minded person. You will be fixed on your own way of thinking. You will be unable to think of the things that are outside of your own world.

If you third-eye chakra is balanced, then, the decisions that you make will be based on your intuition. You will not make decisions based on fear or on you ego. You will be able to make positive changes in your life, your surroundings, and the lives of the others that are around you.

The next update that I will have in this chakra series will be about the final chakra. That chakra is named the crown chakra. You should look for that update soon.

Tips for novice witches: the throat chakra

The fifth chakra is the throat chakra. The Sanskrit name for this chakra is, “Visuddha.” The throat chakra affects a person’s expression and a person’s communication. This chakra is the chakra that affects your telepathic abilities. For instance, you might think that you hear someone’s thoughts without the person speaking out-loud. Also, you might expect the phone to ring before you hear anything. Then, you might anticipate who the person is on the phone before you pick up the receiver. This chakra affects your willpower. It affects your truthfulness. It affects your expression and the boundaries that you set between you and the other people you encounter.

The energy in the throat chakra moves in your body in a clockwise direction. Then, it connects to the mental auric body.

If this chakra is balanced, then, we communicate in a considerate and in a thoughtful manner. We think about how our words affect others. We can clearly and thoughtfully express our needs, our desires, and our thoughts. We speak with integrity. We do not harm other people with our words.

However, if this chakra is not balanced we can talk too much without listening to other people. We may also speak about things that have no consequence to the other person. If this is the case, then, the person that you speak to may not want to listen to you for long.

If this is not enough energy in the this chakra, then, we will not communicate well at all. We may also give confusing messages to the people around us. We may also give unclear messages when we communicate in a non-verbal way.

This chakra also regulates your thyroid gland, you throat, your mouth, your jaw, your neck, your ears, your shoulders, and your bronchial tubes or your lungs.

It is important that this chakra is balanced to help you to communicate clearly at your school, at your work, or at your home.

There are two more chakras that I will talk to you about in my later updates. I will see you then.

The Astrology Series: The Zodiac

Astrology is an understanding of the different Zodiac signs and the path that the sun and other heavenly bodies move in the sky to affect a person’s life. Astrology can predict a person’s attitude, a person’s characteristics, and the things that can occur in a person’s daily life. It can tell you if you should expect to meet the love of your life that week. It can tell you if you will do well financially that month. It can tell you if you will face struggles or problems in the months ahead. It can also tell you what type of person you are and who you are most likely to be compatible with.

There are twelve Zodiac signs. They are: Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn. These twelve Zodiac signs are connected to the four elements. The four elements are: earth, fire, air, and water.

The Zodiac signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are connected to the water element. That means that the people who are born as Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are sensitive, emotional, and intuitive. People who are one of these Zodiac signs love long conversations that are intimate and challenging. The people whose Zodiac signs are connected to the water element are always there to help the people that they love.

There are also other Zodiac signs that are connected to the fire element. There are three fire signs. They are the Sagittarius, Aries and Leo signs. People who are one of these signs are passionate, stubborn, strong, and temperamental. They get angry quickly. They also forgive easily. They love adventures. They are exuberant. They are smart, analytical, creative, and idealistic types of people.

The next next three signs are connected to the earth element. They are the Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn signs. These people are “grounded.” They are down-to-earth types of people. They are conservative. They are realistic. They can also be emotional. Overall, the people who fall under the Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn signs are practical, loyal, and steady people. They support the ones that they love with steadiness and strength.

The last three signs are the air signs. The three signs that are connected to the air signs are the Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius signs. The people who fall under these signs are social and they love communicating and spending time with other people. These people are intellectual, friendly, and analytical. They love conversations that are intimate and philosophical. These signs love to give advice. However, they can also be judgmental and even superficial.

I find astrology to be accurate and truthful. I love to do Zodiac charts for myself and for other people. I will update here with much more on Zodiac signs in the future.

Tips for novice witches: the heart chakra

The next chakra that I will talk about is the heart chakra. The heart chakra is the fourth chakra. The heart chakra’s Sanskrit name is, “Anahata.” It moves in the anti-clockwise direction. It connects to the astral auric body, or the emotional aura.

The heart chakra is located in the middle of your chest. It regulates the thymus, the heart, and the lungs. It also regulates your circulation, your hands, your shoulders, your breasts, and your upper-back.

This chakra is connected to unconditional love. This chakra has to do with generosity, compassion, and also forgiveness. This chakra affects how you consider other people. It alters your expectations of yourself. It allows us to empathize with other people’s pain. It helps us to be aware of the interconnected nature of life. It helps us to give unconditional love to other people. It allows you to find an inner-sense of peace and an inner-sense of wellness.

If this chakra is out-of-balance, then, you will feel many different things. If you find that you always give love to others and that you do not expect anything in return, then, your heart chakra may have inefficient energy. If you are a person who does not have empathy, or if you are a person who does not have compassion toward other people, then, that means that you have a low amount of energy in this chakra.

That’s it for this overview of the fourth chakra, or the heart chakra.

The Sabbats Series: Beltane

The Sabbats are a Wiccan time of celebration. Beltane, or May Day, is a Sabbat that occurs between April 30 to May 1. Beltane falls between the time of the Spring Equinox and the time of the Summer Solstice. Beltane represents the coming of the new spring season, rebirth, and sacred sexuality. This time is when we celebrate passion, love, and growth.

In the past during the creation of the united tribes of Alba the Celtic religion honored the sun goddess, Bel. Bel is the goddess of light and the goddes of fire. The Celts celebrated this time by lighting bel-fires, which are otherwise known as bonfires in the present day. The bonfire represented the return of the light during the coming spring season.

One well-known mark of Beltane is the Maypole. The Maypole represents fire and it represents fertility. When Celts roamed Great Britain the Celts would place a wooden pole on the ground with long colored-ribbons attached to it. The Celtic women would, then, hold onto the colored ribbon. They would dance around the Maypole to encourage prosperity, growth, and procreation.

If you are a Wiccan you may have an altar that you use for spell-castings or even god and goddess worship. At this time you can place fresh-picked flowers on your altar to represent the coming spring season and the return of the light. You can can place sprigs of rosemary, motherwort and marigold at your altar. You can place offerings of fruit, milk, and honey at your altar for the fairies if you wish to do so. You can also place the Love tarot card at your altar.

Another thing that you can do at this time is to have a bonfire with others to celebrate Beltane. You can also wear a flower crown of your own making.

Beltane is a time period where Wiccans celebrate the light. So, you may want to buy candles and light them around your house or at your altar.

I hope you have a Happy Beltane celebration in a few weeks.
