Vacation Time - What You Need To Know

Time for Vacation! What You Need to Know!

Many of you know that I run my business on my own.  It's just something that I've always wanted to maintain as I feel that it's more personal that way.  As such I work a lot of hours, a ton really.  I absolutely love what I do though and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I am going to be taking a bit of a break next week.  I promised Earl I would step away from everything for a week and just recharge.  So I will be out of the "office" from next Monday through next Sunday.

How does this impact you?

Moonsong Daily Magick will go out as usual, you will not miss a thing. :))) I have been working hard this week getting them done ahead of time for you, so I will still be there for you every morning.  If you aren't a member yet you can still sign up!

New Moon Eclipse Readings - I am working on readings tonight and over the next two days.  If you haven't booked your reading yet you definitely want to book now.  I will be back next weekend so I will have time to run them next Sunday and Monday as well.

Bonus Readings  and Custom Spell Work - Did you book the Full Moon reading and you are eligible for the New Moon reading bonus? If so please have those booked tonight if you can tomorrow at the latest. I want to make sure that you have enough time to get what you need for the custom spell work and I want to make sure I have enough time to write you up a good spell to work with ;)  For those who have booked already I am working on them this weekend. :))

Tarot Card Reading - You are welcome to book readings with me during the week! Please do! :)) They will help me on vacation. :))) You will be first in line when I start readings next Sunday. :)))

I will be here the next two days if you have any questions!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Jasmeine Moonsong
It's coming! Get ready for the New Moon Eclipse!

**Limited Edition Reading**

The Total Solar Eclipse which falls on this New Moon is going to be the most talked about astrological event of this year as this is the first time in 38 years that this eclipse will be viewable across all of North America. This will not happen again until 2024. This eclipse is also the conclusion of a two eclipse event happening in August with the first eclipse being the Lunar Eclipse that fell on our Full Corn Moon.

This is a night of powerful energy not to be missed! Set the pace for the next Lunar cycle! :))))

Dandelion Magick Spell




"Mommy can you ask Earl not to mow the lawn today?" Cole asked me as he was climbing into the car to go to camp.

"Why?" I asked him.

"There's tons of wishes out there and I need time to make them all before Earl mows the lawn."

I couldn't help but smile as he finished getting into the car.

He is right though on Dandelions making good wishes! Did you know that when you blow the seeds off of a Dandelion you are not only making a wish but casting a spell? :)) My son has been making wishes on them for as long as I can remember. Usually when he finds one he runs over to me with it and has me wish with him.  It's really cute.

Such a simple act, such a simple spell, with reputation it can contain some pretty powerful energy. If you think about it, each time you make a wish you are setting your intention and sending energy out. It's like wishing on a star every night. Such a simple act can wind up being really powerful.  So the next time you pass by that dandelion make a wish!

Have a magickal day!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Mini Altars




How many of you are familiar with mini-altars? Have you ever seen one? Let's first start with why you may want something like this.

Altars help us to focus our energy during ritual and when working with magick and they also provide a place for us to honor the Goddess, our deities, and the energy of the Universe. That being said it's not always practical for us to have an altar with us. Some of us live in places where we need to hide our spirituality still. Some of us have jobs that keep us away from home. You can take these with you when you are traveling. The time I like them the most is if I'm going to work out in nature.

So let's get into what we need. I alway tell you that your intention is what's most important. So you can get as formal or informal with these as you want as you feel called to do so on your path.

So let's start at the beginning the first thing you need is a mini tin. The easiest place I've found to find one is to get a tin of Altoids.  These tins are the perfect size.

The next thing I love to keep in mine is a tea light. One of these led style ones is really great for safety reasons. I tend to keep a normal tea light in mine.

It's really a matter of personal preference. Decorate the altar any way you wish. You can add things to honor the Goddess or your chosen deity. Put stones in that you enjoy working with. I'll give you a bunch of examples to look at below


I love how this one has a mini athame and chalice.




Check out the tiny crystal ball on this one!  Note they have representation of all the elements as well.




In this altar they actually fixed everything to the tin. It's another way to design your altar. 



For this mini altar they clearly used a bigger box, but for some this may be a viable option as well

When you design these you can have one that you use all the time, you can also make different ones for special occasions. It's all up to you!

Get creative!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

The Magick Of Garlic




How many of you love garlic? : It is a huge favorite of mine and use in in so many things that I eat. If it's acceptable to have it in it, I put add it. If it didn't bother my stomach I would eat garlic a lot more than I do.

In your garden you may find that you easily pass by garlic as above ground it looks a bit like grass. Under the ground though, you will find the bulb which is the part that you want to use.  This herb is a gardener's delight as you can plant it all around the edges of the garden and it will help to keep unwanted guests from eating your garden like rabbits and moles. I love bunnies just as much as anyone else, but I definitely don't love it when they come to take my fresh grown lettuce out of the garden. So this is a nice friendly way to discourage them from entering the garden.

Garlic has a long history of use, and its documented history actually goes back over 7,000 years tracing back to Paleolithic caves. In ancient Egyptian tombs it was depicted as an offering to the Gods. During the plague it was used to ward off evil spirits. Today it is a very popular herb with both culinary and medicinal uses, and you will find it quite useful in your ritual work as well.

Garlic is considered masculine and is associated with fire. It is associated with the planet Mars and the sign of Aries. When you think about the history of Garlic, you will probably be able to recall many examples of it being used for protection, therefore it's not surprising that one of the main metaphysical properties of this herb is protection. Did you know it can also attract good luck and positive energy? It's time to make those garlic wreaths and hang them around your house.

It has a myriad of health benefits as well from helping to control blood pressure and blood sugar level to helping to eliminate bacteria and ward off colds. This is definitely an herb that will be helpful in your life so find ways to incorporate it where you can.

Have a magickal day!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Astrological Highlights In August and Your Magickal Work

Original graphic by Aurora Lion

Merry Meet :))) We have an incredibly powerful month coming up. For those of you who have been watching the extra emails from me you received some information about the lineup of the eclipses the other day. I wanted to touch on that again today and give you some additional information. :)))


The highlight of this month and the event that everyone is talking about is the Total Eclipse that is going to happen on August 21, 2017. So why is this such a big deal? This is a Solar Eclipse that will be viewed across all of North America which is really rare. It's the first time that it's happened in 38 years and the next time this will happen will be in 2024. If you are located in the United States you may have the opportunity to see a total eclipse.



On this map you can see the band of where those located in the united states will be able to see the entire eclipse. For a closeup of this map and more information you can follow this link: Total Eclipse Map


Want to know what you will be able to see where you are? I know I have a lot of you who are not located in North America and even if you are in North America this will give you precise times and what to expect. Follow this link: Total Solar Eclipse Interactive Map On this page you will see a huge map. Enter your address in the search bar at the top and it will tell you everything that you need to know.


As you know eclipses heighten the energy when they occur and they are a very cool opportunity to work with all phases of the Moon in one brief period of time. They also will make the energy more intense that is currently going on. So here's where it starts getting complicated and very cool. This Total Eclipse falls on our New Moon in August. That's really a tremendous opportunity to do some really solid energy work on that night. :)))) This will most definitely be a very special New Moon that you don't want to miss working with.


Ready for more? We are going to kick this off with our Full Corn Moon that is coming up on the 7th. This Full Moon is falling upon a Lunar Eclipse. The opposite of what we will have on the New Moon. We are in for some incredible energy this month that has the potential to change a lot around you so you want to work with this energy to make sure that you set your intentions for what you want. :))) Here you can find a chart to find out if you can see the Lunar Eclipse where you are located. Lunar Eclipse Viewing.

In the middle of all this we are going to have the Perseid Meteor Shower that you want to check out. The Perseid Meteor shower happens between July 19 and August 24th, however the best time to view it are between August 9 - 13. You will want to go outside to see this when the sky is the darkest where you are.

I have a page that gives you more information about the Meteor Shower and places that you can see it here: Perseid Meteor Shower This is a great time to work more with your intentions. If you are lucky and see a meteor make sure you make a wish! :))))

Don't forget that I have tarot readings available for those of you who are interested. If you purchase the Full Moon reading and the New Moon reading you will receive a bonus in the New Moon reading. :))) I'm thinking of maybe getting a little extra witchy with you and writing you a spell for that night ;) It will definitely be something that I hope you will enjoy. :)) I am going to make it simple so you won't have to gather a ton of things, yet powerful as I want it to really accomplish what you want. I really want you to get the most out of these Eclipses so I thought a bonus of a custom spell may help you to obtain what you want. :)))) The Full Moon reading is currently available and you can book your here: Full Corn Moon reading You'll receive instructions at the bottom of that reading for how to redeem your bonus if you decide to purchase the New Moon reading as well. :))))

I think that's everything you need to know!

Have a magickal day!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Do You Know Your Leading Personality Type




Merry Meet :))) The other day I had this personality quiz go by on my Facebook feed. I honestly try not to spend much time on Facebook and go on to grab the local things going on, but for some reason this one jumped out at me, probably the colors if I'm being honest. I'm a huge color girl. ;) So I took the moment and went to the link to check it out.

As I made my way through it I was wondering what colors corresponded with what? Maybe the brightest yellow is really happy, while the light lavender is relaxing? I really wasn't sure what the quiz would use. I made it all the way to the end and I got courage. I immediately dismissed it as a quiz that didn't work. I'm not courageous? That's a trait I would least likely bring up to describe myself.

About an hour later it came back into my mind and I wondered why I kept thinking about it. I felt like maybe I had dismissed it too quickly? So I started going through everything that I've done in my life, in particular over the last several years as if I was someone from the outside looking at myself. I was floored. I guess courageous would really be a word that would work for me! A lot of what I've done I've been terrified of, but I've learned to take one step at a time and go after what I wanted, and yes a good deal of courage had to be involved.

My point to this is, it's funny how a small quiz that took a moment's of my time taught me something about myself. I am kind of baffled that I didn't realize that about myself. It just shows that there is always something more that we can learn about ourselves. :))))

If you are interested in taking the little quiz you can find it here:

http://writical.com/know-leading-personality-type-click-see/

Let me know if you discover something new about yourself!

Have a magickal day!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Important August Eclipse and Moon Information





We have two important eclipses going on during the month of August and you want to be ready to work with both of them and dedicate the time to them as their energy can be powerful. The first one is a Lunar Eclipse that falls on the the day of the Full Moon. We follow it up with a Total Solar Eclipse which is going to be the most talked about astrological event of this year as the Lunar Eclipse lines up with the Full Moon and the Solar Eclipse lines up with the New Moon. The reason this even is so talked about is that it will be viewable across the entirety of North America which is the first time this has happened in 38 years. This will not happen again until 2024. This Solar Eclipse is falling on our August New Moon so you can see how these events are really important to work with! :))) I would highly recommend doing both special readings this month so that you are in the loop on what energy you want to work with for both of these. :)))) I will publish the New Moon reading next week for you to book so that you get it before the New Moon. :)) I've included special cards in this reading that will help you work up to the Solar Eclipse and the New Moon reading will give you what you need to prepare for that Moon.

****BONUS - For Those Of You Who Purchase the Full Corn Moon reading you will receive a special bonus on your New Moon Lunar Eclipse reading purchase. You will get instructions included at the bottom of your Full Moon reading.***

Our Full Moon in August is the Full Corn Moon. The Corn Moon is associated with the element of fire and brings us a fiery energy that will help you to harvest what you need now for the upcoming Fall season. It's also an amazing night to give thanks for the harvest that we are currently experiencing.

The Full Moon is the time of greatest power and the perfect night for magick and ritual as it’s a night where energy is in abundance. The Full Moon represents the Goddess in her Mother aspect. She is fertile and abundant gaining knowledge.

Lughnasadh Blessings!





Merry Meet and Lughnasadh Blessings to you all! Tonight is the first of the harvest festivals that we will celebrate over the next few months to include Mabon and Samhain in September and October. Tonight's Sabbat falls in between the Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox, as we turn the wheel of the year once again. For those of you that garden you will recognize that most vegetable crops are ready now. I know we are having fresh veggies our gardens here almost every night here. Zucchini is amazing on the Panini Press and Summer Squash on the grill. I'm waiting for my tomatoes to come in though! I am getting a couple of little ones here and there. Once they get going though we are going to have an overabundance of tomatoes! Earl is actually in the kitchen right now canning homemade Garlic Bread and Butter Pickles and making Zucchini Relish. He was talking earlier about making cinnamon chips with watermelon rinds. I hadn't ever heard of that. It's suppose to be pretty easy though. If anyone is interested shoot me an email and I will send you over the recipe. We definitely are enjoying the expanded gardens this year. Oh I should show you my herb garden in my hoop house that he built me!



This is the herb garden this year. :))) The entire left side is basil. There are around 40 plants out there to give you an idea of the size of all different varieties. I absolutely love basil and drink tons of basil tea. There's cinnamon, cardinal, sweet, and large leaf out there. I think that's all of them! lol Oh! I have Box Basil too but it's in a different area of the yard.

On the right is everything else, sage, pineapple sage, cilantro, parsley, rosemary, lavender, lemon balm... I know I'm missing a lot. Behind the hoop house I have huge batches of chives, lemon balm, lavender, anise, and tons of mint between my yard and the field. Wow I have herbs everywhere this year! I didn't really realize how many until I started listing them off! I drink a ton of herbal tea and add fresh herbs to my water every day. :)))



Here's a closer shot of the basil. You can see the different types here a bit. There's the purple basil, the one with pretty purple flowers is Cinnamon basil, to the left a bit with Purple stems is Cardinal basil, the huge leaves are the large leaf and to the left in the back you can see a bit of the Sweet Basil with it's white flowers. :))




This is part of the main garden. There's a few smaller gardens behind this one. If you look towards the end of it you can see a little trellis that Earl strung with twine and the beans are climbing. :)) It's one of my favorite spots. I am so happy with the garden. We have a couple of smaller ones behind this one, one for lettuce, one for strawberry and rhubarb and the tomato garden. I absolutely adore them all.

The more I get into the gardening the more I really have come to appreciate our Wheel of the Year. They really do go hand in hand and have given me a different appreciation and perspective of the Wheel. If you have the means to garden, even if it's indoor gardens I definitely encourage you to.

Ok back to Lamas! :))))

Tonight is the night to celebrate the spirit of the harvest and give thanks for the abundance that Mother Earth is blessing us with at this time. In the Northern Hemisphere most traditions celebrate Lughnasadh on August 1st. In the Southern Hemisphere it is celebrated on February 1st. Our days are starting to get shorter, but we still have more light than darkness in our days.

You may also see tonight referred to as Lammas by most who are not Celtic. The Word Lammas means loaf mass, and you will find some Christian traditions have passed on this ancient pagan holiday and still practice it today. In ancient English customs, the people would bring a loaf of bread made from that first harvest to the church.

Lughnasadh gets it's name from the Celtic Sun God Lugh. It means the "marriage of Lugh." In Celtic traditions, tonight we honor the God Lugh, the celtic craftsman, and the God of skills and talents and light. In Celtic mythology, Lugh is associated with the grains and harvests as he once held a harvest fair in honor of his stepmother, Tailtiu. The name Lugnhasadh comes from his name and is in honor of his work, and the fair he held that day in tribute to his mother. The three days prior to this festival were considered sacred to ancient Celts, and they used them as a time of purification.

It is also an old Celtic custom to harvest billberries on this day. If the harvest was abundant it was considered a sign of how the next couple months of harvest would go. The closest thing I have to billberries in my area is blueberries.

If you are doing a ritual tonight, here are some ideas to prepare your alter. If you are choosing to honor the God Lugh tonight place a symbol of your craft or trade upon your alter. Other items that are appropriate to include for tonight'scelebration include baskets, grains, fruits and vegetables, other symbolic gardening items, and fresh flowers. Some symbols of Lughnasadh include grapes, corn dolls, iron tools or weapons and armor, fall flowers, straw braids, and onion garlands. Altar cloths should be in rich yellows, oranges or reds to represent the end of summer and upcoming fall harvest. Candles should be in rich fall colors as well, reds, oranges, and yellows.

Have a Magickal Day!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Jasmeine Moonsong
