    Twelve Rules of Native American Philosophy-

    1. WHOLENESS. All things are interrelated. Everything in the universe is part of a single whole. Everything is connected in some way to everything else. It is only possible to understand something if we understand how it is connected to everything else.

    2. CHANGE. Everything is in a state of constant change. One season falls upon the other. People are born, live, and die. All things change. There are two kinds of change. The coming together of things I and the coming apart of things. Both kinds of change are necessary and are always connected to each other.

    3. CHANGE OCCURS IN CYCLES OR PATTERNS. They are not random or accidental. If we cannot see how a particular change is connected, it usually means that our standpoint is affecting our perception.

    4. THE PHYSICAL WORLD IS REAL. THE SPIRITUAL WORLD IS REAL. They are two aspects of one reality. There are separate laws which govern
    each. Breaking of a spiritual principle will affect the physical world and visa versa. A balanced life is one that honors both.


    6. PEOPLE CAN ACQUIRE NEW GIFTS, BUT THEY MUST STRUGGLE TO DO SO. The process of developing new personal qualities may be called "true learning."

    7. THERE ARE FOUR DIMENSIONS OF TRUE LEARNING. A person learns in a whole and balanced manner when the mental, spiritual, physical, and
    emotional dimensions are involved in the process.


    * the capacity to have and to respond to dreams, visions, ideals, spiritual teachings, goals and theories.

    * the capacity to accept these as a reflection of our unknown or unrealized potential.

    * the capacity to express these using symbols in speech, art or mathematics.

    * the capacity to use this symbolic _expression towards action directed at making the possible a reality.


    10. A PERSON MUST DECIDE TO DEVELOP THEIR OWN POTENTIAL. The path will always be there for those who decide to travel it.

    11. ANY PERSON WHO SETS OUT ON A JOURNEY OF SELF-DEVELOPMENT WILL BE AIDED. Guides, teachers, and protectors will assist the traveler.

    Sappho and Erinna in a Garden at Mytilene

    This painting depicts Sappho embracing her fellow poet Erinna in a garden at Mytilene on the island of Lesbos.

    Sappho was born at Lesbos in about 612 BCE. After a period of exile in Sicily she returned to the island where she was at the center of a community of young women devoted to Aphrodite and the Muses.

    The artist Simeon Solomon believed Erinna to have been part of this community, but we now know that she lived on the Dorian island of Télos, not Lesbos. Erinna also lived slightly later than Sappho, at the end of the 4th Century BCE.

    Sappho wrote nine books of poetry, of which only fragments survive. The principal subject of her work is the joy and frustration of love. The most complete surviving poem is an invocation to the goddess Aphrodite, which I posted a few days ago, to help her in her relationship with a woman.

    Here, we see Sappho crowned with laurel. She has dark, Mediterranean, slightly androgynous features. She represents a 'masculine' foil to Erinna's seductive femininity, which is emphasized by the soft flesh tones, partially exposed breasts and shoulder.

    Their love for each other is emphasized by the pair of doves seated above them. Sappho is identifiable through her traditional attributes: the lines of poetry and the musical instrument set to one side. The deer is sacred to Apollo – among his recognitions, he is the god of poetry.

  • Everything Techniques!
    // How to Create A Moon Tree //
    A special gift for the Dark Goddess of the Moon. Done on a Full Moon night.

    The highest initiation of Luna is one of Wisdom, allowing the psyche to influence action and to follow an inner voice. The Great Wise Mother holds the secret of feminine spirituality. By making a 'Moo Tree' you can increase communication with the Moon Herself. In addition, it can also be a beautiful Being to adorn your home, bringing the sense of Luna in doors.

    01) Willow or aspen branches.
    02) Silver spray paint.
    03) A container to put branches in.
    04) River stones or Clear Quartz crystals or Moonstones (this is the best if you are able to account for and afford so many Moonstones).
    05) Clear glass fairy lights.
    06) Silver totems: crescent Moons.
    07) Thin blue ribbons, seashells, and white papery flowers.
    08) Two white or silver candles.

    01) Spray the branches and arranged them in the pot supported by the river stones (or crystals).
    02) Simply decorate as you like and don't worry if you haven't got all the above; just use your imagination and decorate the tree in your own style.
    03) Empower the Tree and bless it by offering it to the full Moon. The following chant can be said under the silver light of the Moon:

    By the power of Hekate, Kerridwen, and the Morrigan,
    I draw down the power of the Full Moon into this Moon Tree.
    By the power of the Dark Goddess of the Moon,
    This Tree is sacred and blessed with Lunar Energy.
    The power of the Moon Lady now dwells within my home.
    This is my will,
    So mote it be.

    Now place the Moon Tree on an altar or other sacred place where It can be revered and worshiped.
    May the Goddess of the Moon and Her Lunar Spirits be with you.

    Blessed be. )O(

    Spiders in the morning foretell a bad warning but a spider at night means things will turn right as a totem their Meanings and Messages: creativity, ingenuity, entrapment, dreamer, architect
    Spiders are not scientifically classified as insects. But in the totem world they do walk within the insect kingdom. Their bodies resemble the number 8 or infinity symbols, so whenever spider totem appears look to numerical eight meanings and messages. Their two-segmented body is not equal, appearing more like an hour glass, one segment weightier than the other. When you come upon a spider time may be concern. Ask yourself if time is slipping away too quickly or are you experiencing a slow down of activity? The spider weaves his sticky web as an entrapment device for gathering prey to feast on. Web-weaving demonstrates how we can use our creative talents in our work and livelihood. If you come upon a spider ask if you are the one feeling trapped or entangled in chaotic activities. You may very well be better off preparing to create your own web. Spider will teach you how to break out of your stuck energies and how to weave you own personal power web. Spiders are architects, creating intricate webs. These dream-weavers teach us to take action. As soon as you begin weaving your own power web you will surely capture your dreams and desires.

    An Irish Spell to Get Someone to Call You

    On a piece of parchment or fine quality writing paper, inscribe the name of the person you wish to call you.

    Write the name in a circle twice, so the ends meet. As you do this concentrate on the person's face and your desire that they call you.

    Then, while still concentrating, put a needle through the center of the circle created by the name. Place this charm by your telephone.

    The person will call within five minutes, five hours or five days, depending on how well the spell was cast – how clearly you stated your intent, and how well you focused on it.

    Charge Of The Full Moon

    Charging and empowering stones, herbs, jewelry, and other items before using them for a specific purpose allows for 2 important things. It aligns their unique vibration with what you desire and creates a holding cell to store strong energy for you. By attuning to your object, you are creating a special bond between the two of you that will allow you to quickly and easily tap into its energy. Your charged item may evoke a connection with a certain deity, enhance prosperity or healing energies, sustain a protection shield or magnify your own natural chi. It will be tailored to your own unique energy frequency and magickal intent.

    You can charge an item practically anytime regardless of the phase of the moon. However if you want your item to pack a cosmic wallop overflowing with serious potent energy, a Full Moon is your answer. Why? The Full Moon is the climatic point when the moon is illuminated by the direct frontal light of the sun and reflects that light back to Earth. The Sun and Moon are directly opposed to one another and it is this opposition that creates an extreme unbalance in energy. By directing this energy into your item, you will be creating an invaluable catalysts for your own personal magick.

    I Know My Soul

    I plucked my soul out of its secret place,
    And held it to the mirror of my eye,
    To see it like a star against the sky,
    A twitching body quivering in space,
    A spark of passion shining on my face.
    And I explored it to determine why
    This awful key to my infinity
    Conspires to rob me of sweet joy and grace.
    And if the sign may not be fully read,
    If I can comprehend but not control,
    I need not gloom my days with futile dread,
    Because I see a part and not the whole.
    Contemplating the strange, I'm comforted
    By this narcotic thought: I know my soul.
    -Claude McKay

It's important to learn to overcome temptations and obstacles of this day. Just like every moon day, this day has positive energies that can be used for spiritual growth. Wisdom perspective will help to find solutions in dead-end situations. Day is great for physical exercise and yoga.
