These are a rendition of Eileen Holland's Seven Blessing Bottles:
I have three amazing women in my life who I wanted to do something special for...so I gathered my library and started thumbing through different projects to put a spin on what I wanted.
I found it...A SEVEN BLESSINGS BOTTLE
Although I adapted it to jars and added some of my own goodies inside for the layers...it followed same outline.
1st layer: salt (To purify & cleanse) 2nd layer: Pine needles from my yard for Health 3rd layer: some dried rose petals (I had done myself) & cinnamon for Love 4th Layer: my own rubbed sage for prosperity 5th layer some home grown Basil from my summer garden for Peace 6th layer: Black Pepper & Garlic powder for Protection 7th layer: Dill weed & Bay Leaves for Good luck. Last top layer is some Sugar to sweeten the charm/spell and seal the deal.
You want to be sure to use DRIED ingridents for that will keep things from getting mold or soggy.
This jar/bottle is to bring forth good blessings/fortune to you and your home. It can be hidden in a closet or cabinet by front door where all things must enter...preferrably somewhere dark.
You want to attract these positive things to your doorstep and you and especially protection for yourself and your home.
I did a little blessing and sealed them with White candle wax to give it that "Witchy" appearance. I think they are lovely...they have been created, blessed and sealed. Now...to give them to my friends, what a wonderful start to the Witches' New Year for me! :)

Its about crops being harvested, light & dark again coming into balance. Witches sometimes put fruit of the season on their altars, baked breads, pies and work their magick to balance imbalances.
It is thought here is when the God sleeps in the womb of the Goddess waiting to be reborn again with a new season.
Mabon is sacred to the Celtic God Mabon, a son of light, son of the mother Goddess Modron.
I thought it very interesting to note here, not only is my favorite season Autumn, due to the lovely temperatures, foliage colors and family gatherings giving thanks. But this past weekend when I was on my "Girls' Get away" I took by chance a spell with me to perform as a Blessing, a spell to balance some imbalances for me and my personal issues. I did this without even thinking of Mabon, funny how that worked isn't it?
Here I am just practicing the craft I love, casting the Blessings I wrote and looking for that harmony again in my routines and daily life then I get home...really notice the Dates and think...OH WOW...how magickally I was guided and how intricate the spokes of the wheel turn all coordinating together and some how reaching that desired location or effect that manage to balance each other along the path. I am truly blessed & I am grateful that along the way I take time to notice, really notice the gifts from the Gods/desses that stick out and show me...I am right where I belong within myself and my environment.
Brightest Blessings all, may you too balance the imbalances in your life.

My Magick Everywhere:
That seems to be as of late, one hand grabbing my scarf as I try not to choke myself with it flying out the side door grabbing my keys and thinking...CRAP! When I notice the full blossoming beauty of the gorgeous silver full moon above my head...Yes, my schedule begins around 2:30AM and then I am at work, bowing out from my routine as I take a moment to utter a few words and lift my chin to her beauty and feel....Half as myself. Then I race back in to the rat race and start clamouring with my daily saga.
My Birthday is this month I am yet a true Libra through and through...Upbeat, funny, inspiring, outgoing, people pleaser. As my lovely best friend the Aquarius says...I should really take off my rose coloured glasses and see the crap people put on me.
I don't think I will. I see what is out there, trust me, my glasses don't cover my eyes as a whole. But I do like to see the potential in some one's soul...the person they ASPIRE to become. That is so much to breathe in, to grasp and I love it. As I like to think as my personal mantra..."There is Magick Everywhere just waiting to be spotted". Please understand too, my BF she is only watching out for me...protecting me. LOL Every once in awhile I see her, hiding her rose coloured glasses deep inside her purse...but I know she has them. :)
Speaking of her...she took me on a lovely, blessed retreat for girls only to a rustic cabin deep into the Ozark forest in Arkansas and we had this gorgeous view ...350 degree gorgeous view of the Ozarks....I of course hated the millions of daddy long legs crawling EVERYWHERE! Other than that and the KILLER ants it was JUST what the Medicine Woman ordered. LOL
Sorry about the critters, its kind of a running joke between her and I now. We also had a raccoon that aspired to be a car thief...his prints all over her trunk and back of the car, a bunny right up to our porch inspecting us during our unpacking phase, a grasshopper that decided to take a 10 mile ride on our windshield, what a surfer man!
The point is...we stopped...we listened and noticed EVERYTHING. No TV, no distractions and we played it by ear, no clocks, no schedules, we did blessings, we drank some amazing wine and took a late night stroll w/flashlights in hand and wind in hair to see the moon in all her glory by the bluffs. We drove into Eureka Springs, AR as well and got some amazing trinkets for ourselves...a glass pen with inkwells...candles...more tarot cards...a new pendulum...some new crystals...some sweet grass...a polished river rock from a local stream...some new amazing scents of incense. And during all of this...we found ourselves, unleashed some really pent up emotion and energies, rekindled our bond between us and came back even more empowered and full of new magick. I am truly sorry I haven't posted in awhile, funny how life sometimes gets in the way, but what I did realize is its all ABOUT LIFE. I will make it a point to post at least once a week. It is MY therapy and its free and followed by so many lovely upbeat comments, boosts and just plain old support and in my neck of the woods, that is what counts. I hope all are well and lovely. Glad to be back my friends. Thrilled to have had such an amazing Birthday due to such a Wonderful Friend. By the way...my Fiance...the Torch...has gotten me a KITCHEN AID! If you knew me, knew the desire and passion I hold for myself as a kitchen witch that loves to cook...you'd know...it was the icing on my lovely cake!
Brightest Blessings Always )o(

As of late I have been glancing from blog to blog and I want to acknowledge one that has really hit home with me...
mxtodis123 her blog "I am Woman" is inspiring she has many great links, information and its beautifully done as many others but this one issue she brought forth...
About Crimes against Women here is her link:
Once I read what she said...I immediately thought of a Movie I had rented called.."The Stoning of Soraya M." It blew me away from all the emotions I felt to the knowledge I gained about These women's plights overseas and their suffering.
If you have not seen this movie you should rent it. It is from a true story a is a 2008 American drama film adapted from French-Iranian journalist Freidoune Sahebjam's 1990 book La Femme Lapidée, based on a true story.
The book has been banned in Iran because of its perceived critical attitude toward the Iranian legal system.
Stranded in a remote Iranian village, Sahebjam is approached by Zahra, a woman with a harrowing tale to tell about her niece, Soraya, and the bloody circumstances of her death the day before. Her story attempts to expose the inhumanity of Sharia Law. Her last and only hope for justice lies in the hands of the journalist, who must escape with the story - and his life - in order to communicate the violence to the world.
There are many sites you can log onto to view the information here.
When I rented this movie...I thought I was prepared for what I was going to see...I wasn't. I was bawling like a baby...outraged and appalled.
Women all over the world are treated terribly our plights are long, harrowing and full of danger. We have come so far, yet...the road still lays so far ahead with no end in sight.
I will do as "I AM WOMAN"'s blog stated and be lighting a candle today for our sisters still in harm's way and suffering needlessly. I hope this will enlighten you and bring forth so many of your emotions as this did for me.
I appreciate mxtodis123 and the way she made me stop and think...ponder and recall what I am so grateful for...to be the woman I am, in the country I am with the freedoms I have.
Many many thanks.
Please don't just read this...follow it...link to the sites...rent the movie...Show your awareness & together maybe some how, some way we will make a difference.
I had watched this movie here is the link:

Mother Moon's Eat, Pray & Love Giveaway:
So, this is my tribute to her blog...about my EAT, PRAY & LOVE....
My EAT is CHOCOLATE!
OMG...I get all shaky and weak at the knees when I see or smell desserts...I am such a Foodie....a total junkie when it comes to the sweet stuff, of course I am a Kitchen Witch and If you ask my friends...I love, love, love cooking everything! The feeling I get when I am in the kitchen being creative, whipping this together, mixing that up with that and smelling it bake and sizzle and the fragrances wafting through my home and the pride I have when I serve it up to my family is beyond satisfying for myself. I am so blessed to have such a drive as that...as a matter of fact last night after making an Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie...I whipped up a hot, lava fudge cake and topped it steaming right out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream...YUM YUM YUMMY! So, yes, mine does change daily as far as my eats go as with any good Foodie...but I have to admit that Chocolate is my vice.
My Pray: My personal journey
This one is one of many for me I am afraid....I have ADHD and a tad OCD as well...with Libra mixed in I am a total AIR SIGN and I love doing, going and constantly have a book in my hand...Knowledge is power. I have my biggest love of the Egyptian Pantheon and myself. I call on different Gods/esses whenever I need to attribute a characteristic or two and there are daily mantra's in which I try to include on myself, within myself. I believe so many different angles and ideas are a necessary part of my life...There are moments I feel side swiped or let down but those are fewer and fewer as my days go forth. I have a wonderful head start into my personal being and my ideals. I accept all those around me and their faiths. I am but a Guardian on my path of knowledge. I Pray daily for the guidance and understanding to further me along my journey of self knowledge, spirituality and contentment. My daily thought usually pertains to...I ask it...I seek it...I say it...So mote it be.
My Love: My heart
Here goes....My Heart is what contains my love, First and foremost my two children who btw are young adults now :) they are what I call PURE TRUE LOVE...no holds barred no strings attached just TRUE LOVE.
Second...my fiance' he is my mate he is Catholic yet, he fully accepts me and my weirdness and loves me more for it. He completes me.
Third...My family/friends they are the best and remind me daily of that from the smallest phone call to uplift me, to the kindest gift of listening and honesty.
Finally...Myself...I have learned after years of abuse by my stepfather(physical, emotional, mental) my ex husband (mentally degrading) that I am Beautiful, worthy and deserve kindness and love and acceptance no matter my size or rank in life. The hardest part was learning to love and accept myself for me and my flaws...the human condition...gotta love it.
I am but a Goddess and I am worthy. ( seems like a funny skit from the mirror guy on SNL) LOL...but it works and has been a journey to be able to accept that.
Now, I have bared my Eat, Pray and Love to you all, I just want to say I fully appreciate Mother Moon for guiding me down this path...it was hard, yet rewarding, strange to be so open but felt amazing. Many, Many thanks Mother Moon! I will be getting that book too hopefully!

Today has been amazing!
It was all about recharging, revamping and revitalizing myself. It started with me pulling my sleepy, tired butt out of bed early to meet a dear friend for breakfast, It turned out better than I could have hoped for.
Not only did we eat a quick bite, we laughed, we listened to each other and we aired out our baggage we had been lugging around so tightly snapped shut for fear of hurting one another.
After breakfast, she took me to this amazing vantage point way up above our city and I could look out from under some maple trees and we sat on the lovely, cool Stone ground and felt the wind on our faces, the sun through the canopy above us and we shared, listened and got a bit more grounded together. I have missed this immensely.
She is one of the most wonderful beings I have ever had the privilege of calling friend. She smiled, I smiled...she laughed, I laughed, she teared up, I teared up. It was there, we were there, honest, raw & open and we both understood where the other was at. I am so thankful today for this bit of recharging and just being with her reminded of what Goddesses we both are and the POWER we can unite between us just in a few mere moments. I also received some gifts she made for me and that a friend of hers made for me...they were beautiful and moving. I am ever so grateful and humbled that I have such a friend. I pray that I will be guided to being the friend she needs and requires as well. Many of you mean a great deal to me, I hope that along your paths, journey's and quests that you too....have the pleasure of such divine company if even for just a fleeting moment.
* in honor of my friend who always brings out the very best in myself....ILY dearly!

I have been inspired as of late from all the wonderful blogs I have begun to follow.
So, many of you have inspiring tales, honest evaluations and facts of yourselves and the warmth and knowledge you along within myself that "WE" bring forth from each other.
I wanted to acknowledge today MANY THANKS...
not because of a Sabbat, not because of a wonderful thing that has happened or been given to me, not because the calendar says so. Actually I have been working alot of doubles at work lately, we have had a personal loss as well in our family and my fiance' is really down in his back as well, but all that said.....I am sooo very thankful.
Because if it weren't for days like these...days in which I am so tired, so overwhelmed, so under appreciated, so worried about bills, I wonder if I would TRULY appreciate the days I am not. I so love the human condition. Each of you connect with me in some way, whether it be through a mother's eyes or a best friends cries, or a spouses disappointment and joys but most of all of a WOMAN's feelings, journey and seeking of knowledge down this familiar road of life.
I wanted to post a HUGE HUG and MANY THANKS...You are each a Blessing and a GODDESS to me and I take daily inspiration from each of you.

In case you are new to my blog I usually do a daily reading of MY personal tarot cards.
Everyday I start out at some point to draw from my tarot deck and think on what I have drawn...what it means...what it represents.
I then use several sites, books and personal notes and teachings to decipher what they are and what they mean.
It is a way for me to connect on a more personal level with my Magick and utilize my knowledge.
I also use my blog for sort of a PERSONAL Journal for my tarot stuff.
I fully believe that only WE...ourselves are in control of our paths, our journeys, our choices and freewill.
The cards just show what we must take or make of each situation based on how we interpret these cards and what they mean.
There are so many, many decks and items out there you can use to help you along the way...my best friend reads Runes, my sister tea leaves, another cousin of mine uses the pendulum. I love all of these devices, although I am drawn and have always been drawn to TAROT cards.
When I flip over a card a million things run through my head and heart...its as if they are speaking to me.
I actually prefer to read people I don't know because when I DO KNOW them...i tend to put more of THEM and their personalities into the reading...it helps, but sometimes, makes me feel like I am cheating although I am not. I am quite gifted at reading tarot I also am quite well at reading Energy.
I love so many different eclectic things and love to search out new and different ways to do things.
I do appreciate your taking the time to read what I have to say about my daily tarot and I hope in some small way I help you further your knowledge as well during this part of my path.
Please keep in mind though...the cards are not wrong.
It is simply based upon the interpreter.
You could have one deck and five different people reading the same deck...all would probably read them completely different. Lost in translation? LOL
Simple.....remember...its all based upon interpretation.
Go have fun...Grab your deck thanks for sitting and listening to my insanity for awhile.

Today, as I have been praying for cooler weather...waiting on the predictions of afternoon storms I went thru my house thinking clearly on my intent.
The Inspiration of the Journey
The woman with little or no clothing on in many tarot decks is used to represent the mind, the unconscious or the soul. The water flowing from the erns she is holding represents the ebb and flow of life, health, movement and change.
Behind her is the tree of life, or in some decks as she is here, she is watering the tree of life. Behind her is a giant star which reminds us of the Great Divine and Shining so from up above helps us to realize the infinite universe. This card with her many symbols is supposed to remind us that the great divine is all around us....encouraging, inspiring and motivating us forward from our tasks that may or may not bear fruit.
This card implies that you LISTEN to the inspirations that come from within you. You are the GODDESS. You have everything you need to achieve your desires. GO FOR IT: don't wait a minute longer. But the star also holds a warning....be sure where you place your energies and time. What is the use of pouring water on water?
But if you put that same water on land...it would bear fruit in the right place at the right time. YOU hold all the decisions...actions....basically...you hold all the cards.
~Personal to me~
This card is really wonderful for me today...lately I have been flowing back and forth between the wands, pentacles and whatever my position is ...it tends to be further down the journey which I know this is true. I have had alot of movement in my career...my home life and my relationship with my kids, even my friends and fiance'. I have everything I need....at my disposal I AM FOLLOWING my instincts and it is paying off...I am recognized at work daily with my supervisors I am being treated wonderfully by my fiance and I am bringing forward a better friendship daily with my friends by working really hard at being a better friend myself. My kids are starting to appreciate my hard work and caring for them these past 20 years and starting to check on me and be there for me a bit more by wonderful phone calls. I am doing beautifully and keeping to my path...where this is water, land and opportunity there is chance...so I am waiting for my garden to grow and bring forth the fruit of my hard labor.

Well, today the day was LONG it was sad and exciting for me as we took my son back to the town in which he will be attending his senior year. He is 18 now and very ready to take on the world. I love that in him. I smiled...laughed we talked and he knows I don't want him to go, yet he didn't see that. I wanted him to be excited I didn't want to spoil it for him or make him feel guilty.
As we drew closer to home...I admired the sunset amidst my tears. I was inspired by it and it lifted me. The beautiful colors with the Golden sun as he sank down into the deeper blues. This picture from my phone just doesn't do it justice.
Later, I found out...my 20 year old is moving out as well. One can say I was double whammied. Its ok though. As sad as I am, I would say the Hanged Man card saw this coming. I will not be upset...My kids are both beginning new chapters in their journeys and I want to inspire them...let them go as they need to. I will be encouraging and help all I can as they move forward to their paths in life. May the Goddess protect, love and light their way. Brightest Blessings Always )o(.
He is 18 and it is his senior year he is so excited so he will not SEE my sadness. He knows I love him and wish he were here with me. Since my divorce, I had to relocate due to the economy and my Ex husband still lives in the same town giving our son a chance to graduate with the friends he has had since kindergarten. That I am so very blessed for.
He is not actually living with his father, he does not get along with the NEW wife. Which is sad, although her fault not his as I stated earlier in one of my blogs, she has alot of hatred for me. Sadly its not necessary but I guess he and I and our history we dated since ninth grade and were together almost 23 years, married 18 years and two amazing children.
I know what you think...but I left him actually. I mustered my strength for about 3 years before leaving. The only regret I have in leaving is the hardship it placed on my two teenagers. We were really good friends during and after the divorce until the NEW WIFE. Its only about my kids now and their relationship with their father which is non existent. That breaks my heart.
But, of my rant....LOL....My son is living with his friend he has known since Kindergarten and their family is wonderful and kind to my son and so welcoming we are blessed to have that option.
Now, amidst my feelings and the traveling I will not be really posting today....But I drew the Three of Swords today which is exactly where my heart is today and probably the next few days because when my children are not close my depression tends to move in more on me. I hope you all understand.

The Hanged Man + The Sacrifice of the Journey
The hanged man hangs not from his neck but upside down from one foot. He is in no real danger, just uncomfortable and in a precarious position that leaves him vulnerable.
Within the tarot he serves as a representation of a sacrifice...a choice one has to make between to sides, positions or a fork in the road so to speak. Whether for the good of others or for some future reason you may feel upside down or not yourself so to speak. Kind of like biding your time and waiting for that perfect spot to open up.
The hanged man requires a drastic change in perception or the way you view your problems, obstacles or issues in handling your situation or the other person. Then if taken that perspective your HUGE problem will seem so much more manageable and easy to complete.
Let the difficulties you face help create and build your character, this card deals with the bigger picture and long term. Its all about seeing the bigger picture, the wider truth and going beyond the petty small arguments or disagreements. Remember that TRUE sacrifice is made without worrying who wins what or who was right. Sometimes you have to act completely different in a situation that you normally would to reach the necessary effect or goals.
This card that I pulled today is really interesting for me to interpret. I have several things going on personally right now...issues with my daughter and of course I would go straight to her aid no matter what, but this issue...dictates that I actually LAY down the gauntlet and force her into doing what is right no matter what, which is not what I normally would require. This issue came up late last night which is funny that I drew this card today.
Then there is the argument I had with my fiance "THE TORCH" this morning...over stupid stuff as always in most fights. I haven't had a day off in forever, I am stressed and I thought we were on same page on one thing and then BOOM I realize we weren't and I got upset and went off. I really don't want to go into details but we both had some valid points. So, normally I would be very angry all day, but now...I am going to look at it from his perspective and cut him some slack. I will think very hard today on what all this card entails for me for the situations at hand now and in the future. I only wanna hang here for a little while...LOL.

The Angelica Plant is said to have Magickal elements because it is supposed to protect against sickness and evil. Its dried roots was supposedly named after Archangel Michael for these very reasons.
Also it is noted that if burned like an incense it will cleanse the air of bad smells and malevolent spirits.
One can also Brew it and sip it like a tea its known for Leo the Lions' fiery zodiac due to its warming and stimulating effect when its leaves are either chewed or brewed. (Please avoid during pregnancy)
There are times you may have used this plant in a candied form while decorating cakes or desserts.
There are many times a week and even closer to Sabbats of the Wiccan Year that I try to implement items from my home, garden or environment to give back, to utilize and learn about.
This is one of those plants. I planted some herbs this past spring and they are growing in my kitchen windowsill from Angelica to Basil to Thyme to Sage. Its lovely and I am keeping so many small goals not only using them in my cooking and brewing but to use them during blessings/rituals. I hope many of you are managing the things you want in your daily lives and using them how you see fit.
Brightest Blessings during this Lammas....)o(

Knight + Prince + Brother + Son
Time + Hot High Noon
Season + Middle of Summer
Think on the progression through the courts, Page...think about it, Knight....Act on it, Queen...feel it fully, King...become it.
In a reading the Knight can indicate a man/or woman, a foreboding action or a necessary action another person might take. Or a part of your will that needs work.
Elemental consider that Wands and swords are seen as male, Cups and Coins are seen as female.
The knights of wands is seen as leaving while the cups is seen as staying. Swords is charging ahead recklessly while coins is taking his time being slow and cautious. While sometimes the knights may go a little crazy and make mistakes, they always have good intentions because they are noble and earnest. They take criticism well. They are eager to learn and do what is right. They complete their tasks quickly and swiftly.
Knight of Coins/Pentacles:
Fire of Earth
This knight is cautious and steady of all the knights. He is more balanced than that of the page. He is able to look at the whole picture and weigh the odds in each angle. He also has steady gaze to realize the goal and how to reach the potential he needs. He knows he must be thrifty, use his energy wisely and yield successful results.
I think this card I drew earlier today has been telling me to slow down, think things through in every aspect that pertains to myself. I am extremely intelligent and studious in all I attempt to achieve. With my new promotion at work to keep an eye on details, follow through...sort of...SLOW AND STEADY wins the race. I will remember this lesson and work on myself and my focus to get to my goals.

Season + Winter Solstice
Time + Witching hour
The real wonder of the tarot deck is a type of self discovery, a spiritual journey inward of one's inner most thoughts, desires and secrets. This card is of the Major Arcana cards...
They reveal ourselves from the stumbling Fool, through to the wise Hermit and ending with the options of the gifts of the World.
The Moon card is part of this important journey into self discovery and self acceptance.
For you can't have Light without Dark, you can't have Happiness without Sadness, Truth without Lies, Good without Evil.
It is but a scale a balancing scales just like my zodiac Libra the Scales.
I have worked very hard to grasp the points in my life that are positive, uplifting and moving ever forward and even one of my very best friends refers to me as the person in the rose colored glasses.
When I drew this beautiful amazing card this morning...I thought on it for awhile...noticed the pool of emotion and its reflection in my life and thoughts, saw myself as two people, the white, spiritually uplifting person I try to attain and become then I saw my darker, emotional, sometimes depressed, lonely individual with my woes and sadness that sometimes manages to envelope myself.
That persona that part of me I tend to keep hidden away and avoid, but even at my darkest hours I realize that she is a HUGE part of my strengths and my creativity. She is the emotion I find within myself to drive myself forward and excel and change to what is required.
I think my cards are trying to show me to work with my shadow self, face and accept my "Evil" twin so to speak. Listen to that little voice in my head that says things I don't want to hear that tries to open my eyes to the reality as a whole. Its the Queen Bitch that isn't liked but revered, respected and followed sometimes to bigger and better opportunities.
The first intention in any spiritual pursuit is to seek the light and to do good, but once you have begun you start realizing that it is the rythm of duality that you must embrace to understand its cycles and movements within all life and energies.
Birth>Death, Embrace>Deny it is but an ever changing circle pattern within us all.
It is not the cards that are wrong or incorrect but it is the duty of the interpretation or interpreter to gather the information the cards have dealt and put them accordingly to how you deem the information pivotal or necessary.
I have always hated the thought of reading my cards for ME...because I was afraid I would SEE what I wanted to see or interpret them how I needed them to be for me. What is interesting is the more I delve into my daily card tarot readings, the more I am breaking them down...really thinking on them for 24 hours and realizing its not what I WANT to see but what they truly are guiding me to realize.
They can't predict the future...they can advise me of my options and those are there with or without my cards. They just give me further knowledge to help me along my path. Again, this is just my personal opinion, just my beliefs please you are free to tell me your ideas on this as well. I love so many ideas and opinions and I welcome yours.
One can use these cards to help guide, manifest/banish elements from your life and help change your life based upon your decisions or guidance.
When you are working with these energies be sure that you have Clear intent, without a clear goal, you can end up getting rid of the very thing you are trying to fix or that is trying to call to you or strengthening the very thing you are trying to remove.

She was the daughter of Thutmose I, she effectively governed Egypt after her fathers death. She had herself crowned Maatkare Hatshepsut in around 1473 BC.
Although later, her nephew destroyed many of her monuments and records those that survived represent this "Builder" Pharaoh as being authoritative and powerful as any man. (even to the point of her often being portrayed with masculine characteristics).
This is a solar, fire-element day so light a candle to honor remarkable achievements of Hatshepsut.
The English translation of her name: "First Distinguished Women, Joined with Amun."
I love Egypt and in fact it is primarily the pantheon from which I draw many strengths or power that I need for myself from. I have the book..."The Wicca book of Days" by Selena Eilidh Ash
I find many interesting points like this one from it and it keeps me on a sort of daily routine to just find the female power or strength within myself and some small tidbit on small things to focus myself upon.
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.
