Brew an Chéad Lá- The Wild Week Ahead: February 10, 2019

Brew an Chéad Lá- First Day Brew. Time to gear up for the week ahead!

This week's theme is love, as Valentine's day is this Thursday.  In case you weren't aware, Valentine's Day has its origins in the ancient Roman festival known as "Lupercalia." You can read up on Lupercalia here.

This Week's Totem: Wolf

Wolves are the epitome of the wild spirit. Their positive characteristics are so numerous that the Native people of the Americas practically deified them. Wolves are also very ritualistic. They live by carefully defined rules.

They pile up stones to mark their territory, and howl as a form of group echo-location. Each member of the pack has a specific place within it, and they are ruled by an alpha male/female. Wolves do not fight unnecessarily. They often go out of their way to avoid conflicts where possible. This is also true for those with wolf medicine.

Wolves are extremely intelligent and have a strong connection to corvids (ravens and crows). They have excellent hearing and sense of smell. Wolf medicine people can often smell that something isn’t right when others cannot. 
Wolves are considered to be great teachers, and those with this totem tend toward teaching roles.

Weekly Magic Guide

For those of you who like to plan ahead, we have the First Quarter moon on Tuesday. After that, the moon is in her waxing gibbous phase for the rest of this week. She will move through the signs of Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and Leo this week. The Daily Magic Guides are posted every morning at 5am EST on the Wildly, Witch Facebook Page. However, many of you do like to see what's going on ahead of time. These are for you:

Mo sheacht mbeannacht ort!
