Brew an Chéad Lá: The Wild Week Ahead

Brew an Chéad Lá- First Day Brew.  It's the first day of the week, and we're both ending one year and beginning of another. Many of us will make vows, oaths, or resolutions. Others will choose a theme for the new year.  A majority of us will return to work this week, after a lovely holiday season.

One of the things I won't be doing much anymore is posting pagan or witchcraft news. Our wild souls can only handle so much "news,"so I will bring you art, and love, instead. Let these be your weapons for a wild week ahead.

Quote of the Week:

Witchcraft is a way of life for individuals, not the masses, and there's no point in you coming toward the Craft if you are a wimp, a follower, a coward, or a fool, as sorcery is both a practice and a priesthood, and it is not a garment that can be discarded when the going gets tough.

This Week's Tarot Card:  The 8 of Cups

The Witches Tarot

The 8 of Cups often means that you will choose to leave a situation that is no longer working for you - whether that's a relationship, a job, or a neighborhood. There may be some sadness involved, but in general, this separation is in your best interest.

Know that renewed happy times lie ahead for you. If your "gut" is telling you that you really need to get out of a relationship, job, or living arrangement, trust yourself. You do know what's best for you, and you are no longer willing to settle, or allow other people to stand in the way.

This can also mean that something turns out not to be as important as you once thought it was.

With the end of one year, and the beginning of another this week, it seems appropriate this card would appear right now. Reflection upon what's important, and how you will write your 2019 story is the advice of this card for this time.

Crow Totem:

Crow is the smartest of all birds. Crows are capable of everything from facial recognition (which they pass on to their young) to tool use. There are many myths throughout the world pertaining to crow.

Crow is also associated strongly with magic and witchcraft. Those with this totem find that crows tend to flock when they go out in nature or simply outside their homes. Crows have the unique ability to see with each eye, independently. Those who carry Crow Medicine are able to ‘see’ the unseen, can see both sides of an issue, and are excellent counselors.

Crow people are also well-versed in the laws of the universe and how they operate within our realm of existence. For these reasons, they may find friends and loved ones call upon them for advice and conflict-resolution quite often. Those who carry this totem are also very psychic, and seem to live a ‘magical’ life.

These will still be posted each day on the Wildly, Witch Facebook page, but some of you like more planning time.

This week, we have a new secular year, a new moon, and Uranus goes direct, leaving us with nothing but direct planets until March.

Mo sheacht mbeannacht ort!
(My seven blessings upon you!)
