The Goddess that rules today is Nehalennia,she is the Germanic Goddess of commerce. She was worshipped in the area that is now the Netherlands, and was prevalent when the Romans arrived in the area. Shrines to Nehalennia depicted her holding a basket of fruit and accompanied by a large dog, and sometimes standing on or next to the prow of a ship or holding an oar. Votive inscriptions often thanked her for safe passage across the North Sea, confirming her identification with trade and commerce. Nehalennia’s name, which is thought to mean “seafarer” or “steerswoman,” is also seen as Nenhellenia.Her gemstone is the serpentine.
The spells we share with you are meant as a guideline. It is always our suggestion that you make them your own by using ours as a template. Remember, that magic is only as good as ones intent and focus and the intent you use is what defines your spell. Use of all spells is at your own discretion.
IMBOLC- Casting a Justice Spell
Tying strips of colorful cloth to Trees
This is used for those who have a just cause that needs to be heard.
The patron Goddess of Imbolc is Brigid. During the time of growing light that which is hidden light dust bunnies are shown in the light. Just as the dust bunnies are revealed so can the light be shown on wrong deeds,, good deeds and fairness. It is a perfect time for a Justice Casting.
Centuries ago, strips of cloth were tied to trees around the sacred wells to requests for healing and mercy from the spirits of place. So today, we tie the cloth strips to trees to request justice via the sun, earth, wind and water into the great web of spirit, where all things are balanced out. Blessed by the fiercely protective Brigid this spell is not about revenge or getting even, but, about redressing a grievous imbalance. Imbolc is a time for rendering all things anew. Redeeming balance is part of the process.
What you need to have on hand:
1. Fireproof dish with charcoal disk
2. matches or a lighter
3. 1 tsp of myrrh
4. 1 white candle 6-8" in length
5. 1 purple candle 6-8" in length
6. 13-12" x 3" of white cotton (natural) cloth
7. A favorite tree where you will do your casting ( if you can not do this outside gather a dead tree branch which you can prop up and tie your cloth on it.) Whichever you do try to have it where the strips can stay on the tree or branch undisturbed as long as possible.
1.Cast your magik circle making sure to call Brigid into your circle
2. Light the charcoal disk, and sprinkle the dry myrrh on it
3. Light the white candle, saying: "Brigid is here!"
4. Light the purple candle saying: " And justice will come."
5. Speaking your anger, fear, or despair at the injustice you wish redressed into each strip of cloth, seal them by passing them separately through the incense smoke.
6. Hang them loosely on a dead looking the tree branch(es) and placing your hand on the topmost twig, say:
"Brigid, pity this branch for it is as dead as my enemy's cause."
7. To the tree as you tie each cloth stirp loosley to its lower branches say:
"May the earth hear me in the roots of this tree,
May the air carry my cry
May the sun take up my pleas
and the moon decry it
For with Brigid on my side
My cause is carried."

The Full Moon
Full Moon is when the moon has reached its zenith, it forms a perfect silvery sphere in the sky. This is a time for spells that transform, increase psychic ability, for fertility spells and invocation to lunar goddesses.
This is a time of strength, love and power.
At this time the moon represents the Goddess in her Mother aspect, give praise to Cerridwen, Isis or one of the other Mother Goddesses. The period of the Full Moon lasts from about 3 days before to 3 days after the actual full moon.
Moon of Celebration"
Location: Moon is 180 – 255 degrees ahead of the Sun
Span: Fourteen days to seventeen and a half days after the New Moon.
Time of the Mother Goddess. Anu, Hera, Isis, Demeter, Freya, Luna, Diana, Spider Woman, Chaos, Frigg, Morrigan, Ta – Urt. Beautiful, radiant MoonMother. LadyMoon.
Very intuitive and productive time. Especially: Fertility; Magic; Dreams; Meditation; love; Matters of the home; Beauty; Money; Creativity; Psychic abilities. A time of heightened feelings. Not a good time for major decisions for they will be colored with emotional debris. Do not seek medical treatment, inoculations, operations are at its least favorable. Wounds bleed more, and the formation of scar tissue is more pronounced.
Major workings should occur now. This is the climax of the obvious moon power. Relates to the Growing plant as it pierces the ground.
Full Moon Rituals/Magick

The Full Moon each month is particularly potent magickal ally. Some of your best magick can be created under her influence and with her guidance. Although there is only one night every month which the Moon is totally full, a Natural Magician knows that two days before and two days after the Full Moon are also good times for magickal endeavors. Use the following as a guide for your spellcrafting.
January Full Moon – Wolf Moon
Spells involving organization, ambition, career, politics, healing for the knees, bones, teeth, skin.
February Full Moon – Ice Moon

Gene Roddenberry went to his grave, telling stories that, although they supposedly happened light years away, were relevant to our every day lives. From the beginning, he claimed that the characters and races on Star Trek were parallels for people here on Earth. Little did anyone know that the characters were actually taking on traits of Neo-Pagan sects across the country! Was Gene Pagan? Who knows, but sit back and enjoy this little trip, where no Pagan has gone before…
Wiccans – The United Federation of Planets
The Federation means well. They let just about everybody into their little social club, so long as they agree to play nice. They don't talk about rules much, but keep referring to one Prime Directive that all other laws are based on. That said, they frequently violate that rule when the need suits them. Often heard speaking in various UK accents, even though they're not from the islands (Et tu, Jean-Luc?)
Asatruar – Klingons
Obsessed with honor and combat. Have no qualms with eating meat and eat it with obvious relish. Insist they did everything first ("But Hamlet is so much better in the original Klingon.") And who wants Klingon opera, when you can have Wagner's Die Neibelung?
Ceremonialists – Vulcans
Have you ever heard someone say, "Excuse, I was reading this and wanted to tell you: "anal retentive" has a hyphen in it."? Everything is very orderly in their universe. No room for untidy things like emotions and the like.
Druids – Bajorans
(with special guests: the Tuatha de Dannan as The Prophets)
You cannot separate the Bajorans from their faith. Religion permeates the very air they breathe. Although this should be a unifying force on their devastated environment, they are constantly fighting with one another. Like many other races, they are subject to charismatic leaders.
New Agers – Betazoids
Profoundly psychic when you don't want them to be; dense as a rock (crystal) when you actually need some help. Spend an awful lot of time talking about "vibes" and are perpetually concerned with how others feel. If they weren't so damn cute, you'd just want to smack them. You only see the women of this race.
Numerologists/Kabbalahists – Binars
Numbers are everything, don't you know. Can loudly pronounce a given number (93!) and have people laugh at it like it was a punch line. Draws all sorts of really interesting links between things based on the numerological significance. Socially uncouth. The only difference between the Binars and numerologists is that Binars have mates that understand them.
Setians/Satanists – The Skin of Evil
(the oil slick that killed Tasha Yar)
A long time ago, a race decided to sluff off all their evil, mean and nasty emotions. They physically excreted these emotions into a big pile of black ooze. The race bailed off the planet, leaving the ooze which, over time, became sentient… sort of, and delights in causing fear and pain in others.
Dianics – The Women of Angel 1
Imagine a planet where women are in charge! It is a wonderful, peaceful place. Everyone gets along all the time and no one ever goes hungry. Yeah, right. Behind the facade of perfect love and perfect trust and gyno-unity, there is an iron fist in that velvet glove. And, surprise, surprise, the gynarchy is subject to the same power struggles and in-fighting that the rest of us are.
KayOs MagicKians – The Children of Tama
(Damok & Jilad on the ocean)
I know I'm speaking English, and I know that they are speaking English. However, sometimes, you just can't seem to understand what these souls are trying to tell you. Although they have something valid and wonderful to share with the Federation, what they have to say is mired in a language that excludes more than it includes. Fnord.
Llewellyn Publications – the Borg
Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated. Your history and beliefs will become part of the Borg Collective, where they will be watered down and spread out evenly between everyone in our race. Lower your shields and hand over your money; resistance is futile.
