Goddess Symbols {More} by SunTiger

Symbols come in very handy for all root-and-spell workers. Personally -- Symbols help ME meditate and do positive energy work!

This first symbol, the "Tiet" (pictured left, also spelled "Tyet") is also called an "Isis knot." Since "Knots" are used to bind magic -- this might be a great knot to learn how to tie.
As a hieroglyph, the Tiet seems to resemble the famous Ankh affiliated with all Egyptian deity, except the ankh's arms are fully extended out to either side while the Tiet's arms droop down.

The second symbol, pictured in black and white, represents the Greek Goddess Hecate (Wise Woman -- the Triple Goddess). The middle circle of Her symbol seems to emphasize the moving aspect of the yearly wheel (changing cycles/cogs going round and around) while the three outward prongs seem to symbolize the Triple Goddess -- or her three aspects: maiden, mother and crone.

Next is the symbol "Triskelion" which is identifiable by three interlocked bent lines; often presented as human legs bending at the knee (seemingly running). I mention this symbol as it relates to Goddess worship. It is visually similar to the Spiral Goddess Triskele symbol, pictured in black & white, below. (Reportedly this symbol has been found in Irish Megalithic and Neolithic sites while the Triskelion with legs -- pictured in marble -- is from Sicily).


Lucky MOJO Rice (posted by SunTiger)

Pictured left, FEHU (Nordic rune for blessings and wealth)

This following recipe was originally posted by CuriousCurandera (http://curiouscurandera.blogspot.com) but it reminded SunTiger so much of Hoodoo recipes that she's added her personal touches to enhance the work. Instead of "Green Fixed Rice," this enhanced recipe is now "Lucky MOJO Rice" which you can purchase from any legitimate root-working or spiritual supply store (or make your own).

SunTiger STRONGLY recommends cleaning a home thoroughly before doing any "lucky rice" or energy work. Sweep negativity AWAY from the home simply by swinging the broom away from the house. To increase traffic (as toward a business) select a stimulating herb such as Peppermint or Ginseng and make a tea to use as a floor wash. To create a more peaceful atmosphere, select a calming herb for brewing your tea/floor-wash, such as Camomile or nutmeg.

Many parts of the world affiliate rice with happiness. That’s why, historically, we threw rice after weddings (wishing the bride & groom good luck). Spiritual supply shops sell “lucky rice” or you can make your own!

The only way to create “lucky rice,” in the Hoodoo tradition, is to mix in some shredded cash. Trust me: cutting up even a one-dollar bill takes a LOT of personal self reflection -- which adds power to the lucky rice!

Therefore, while CuriousCurandera's recipe omits that part – SunTiger added it in along with Angelica -- a very strong protective herb to dispel any negativity.

• 1 cup of regular white rice.
• 5 TBSP of rubbing alcohol
• 1 TBSP of Holy Water (or water blessed by the full moon)
• One squirt of green food-coloring (may add more for a darker color).
• 1 TBSP of Angelica for protection
• 1 green bill: cut in very small pieces

Place all the above ingredients EXCEPT the cash into a bowl. Mix thoroughly. Once the green is evenly distributed, pour the rice out onto layers of paper towels or newspaper and spread it out to air dry. (Rubbing alcohol evaporates quickly but I’ve been known to place my rice on the lowest oven setting for 15 minutes when I’m in a hurry).

After your rice is dry . . . add the shredded cash!

Call upon your deity and ask them to awaken the power in your rice. For example:
“I call upon the power of the Goddess Isis, the four directions and the forces of the elements, to awaken the positive energies in this rice before me.” (For the Christian version, see CuriousCurandera's blog site)

When you’re finished, make a sign of the power over your Green Rice (SunTiger uses the pentacle for protection and the Fehu Rune, pictured, for drawing Nordic blessings) and your rice is then ready for use!

For Home (to attract good luck, peace and prosperity):
Stand outside the closed front door. Throw a small handful of your lucky rice at it. Sprinkle some under door mats or place some in a planter or open container near the front door.

For Your Wallet/Purse or Shoes: (attract money & w/SunTiger's recipe, be protected!)
Put some lucky rice inside!

For Your Mailbox/Phone: (to lure good news)
Sprinkle lucky rice in and around your mailbox. For receiving good news via a phone call, fold some inside your cellular phone (in the old days they’d put the rice inside the receiver).

For Enhancing Business (to attract investors and customers with money to spend)
Throw a small handful on business rooftop. Place some at the main entrance; as under the door-mats, in a planter or open container. Place some wherever money is kept (e.g., cash drawer, at the register, in the safe). Scatter it about your parking lot!

For a Lucky MOJO bag (to improve your general sense of well-being)
Sew a small bag from red flannel. Fill it with your Lucky MOJO Rice. You may also add other elements that are important to you (such as a lucky stone or amulet). Attach the MOJO bag to your belt or carry it in your purse.

Richest blessings to you all.

Why Online Psychic Readings Get Frustrating

To work as a psychic at the LivePerson virtual office -- the intuitive reader must exercise SO MUCH patience if she's going to solicit work from the public boards.

Below, I've cut and pasted an actual exchange (exactly as written -- only the client's ID has been changed to protect her identity). This information shows how hard we psychics must work doing the advertising, etc., often without a resultant "hire" on LivePerson.

I wish this did not happen so frequently there . . . [I feel so thankful for DIRECT hires via eBay and through my website: SunTigerMOJO.com; where people are more honoring and willing to pay for an equal exchange (i.e., money for the information they seek).

From: Drama Queen Date: 3/16/2009 10:25:02 PM

I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about an specific person that has been on my mind for that last few days. Sorry I don't have his DOB
Any that could describe him would be a plus!!!
Please no post and copys

{She suggested paying $10 for the reading.}

From: Mystic SunTiger Date: 3/16/2009 11:38:36 PM

Drama Queen ~
* brown-haired male
* younger than you
* thinner build
* average height

I'd love to work with you but my lowest price is $33 (for obvious reasons, we get what we pay for as with psychic readings, energy is exchanged for energy).

Have I been on his mind like he's been on mine?

Mystic SunTiger Date: 3/17/2009 12:19:33 PM

For the fully detailed and personalized love forecast you may hit your hire button. I will offer a timely reply with all the information you seek.

RESULT: Drama Queen (like so many others who have posted on LivePerson's public boards before her) withdraws her questions once she realizes not even psychics can afford to work for FREE.

My goal, in posting this, is to build stronger business relationships with all people. I'd like to raise the bar between client and psychic-intuitive exchanges.

SIDE NOTE TO CYBERCOVEN MATES: Next Full Moon Ritual happens Thursday, April 9th. Be thinking about what sort of goals you would like to accomplish. Send me a message at SunTiger@usa.com (and I will research spell options for that goal) or suggest your own ritual ideas.


Keeping Fresh Herbs Fresh

Since spell and root-workers often cook with herbs, I thought the following link might prove VERY helpful for storing fresh herbs long (helping them stay fresh in the refrigerator).

How to Store Parsley, Cilantro, and Other Fresh Herbs: trim the stems, stand them in a jar of water, cover lightly w/plastic.

In Summoning A Ghost {Submitted by SunTiger}

The following poem/excerpt is taken from The Crones Book of Words, by Valerie Worth, ISBN 0-87542-891-6, page 99.

In Summoning A Ghost

For conversation
With the dead,
Attend to ceremony;
Avoid the grave's
Annoyance, speaking
Always gently:

Earth, bone,
And winding sheet
Let this spirit
Come to me --
Yet send it
In peace
Or not at all

If it come,
It should be offered
White wine,
Not red;
and knelt to,
From pity.


A God Named Heaven {by SunTiger}

Pictured left is the Roman Goddess Fortuna.

I am always amazed by how MUCH Christianity "borrowed" from previously existing religions and village practices. Before your eyes roll to the back of your head as you groan: "I've heard that already," I thought I might share a story that I had never heard before I read it in a book called Greek and Roman Mythology VENUS.

According to Roman and Greek mythology Heaven is the oldest god who ever lived. Chaos gave birth to him. Heaven mated with Earth and many of their offspring were giants. Some were one-eyed cyclopes. Other children exhibited 150 hands.

With deformed offspring like that, you'd think they'd give up trying to reproduce after a while. Instead, Heaven merely locked up his Cyclops children (perhaps because he was sick of looking at that lone eye in the middle of their foreheads).

Thus you have the ORIGINAL story of Heaven and Earth.


Full Moon Ritual, Tuesday, March 10 {by SunTiger}

This Tuesday night, as we stand before our respective altars, we cast the circle because it is crucial for our most powerful spell-work.

Before we do that, however, there's a little preparation work to do. Today, on March 9, the moon enters into the phase of modest, intelligent and shy Virgo (the virgin). The Sun, obviously, is in imaginative and sensitive Pisces (the fish). So there you have the combined accommodating sort of energy that's available to us on this full moon ritual night.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, March's full moon is called the "spring Moon" but it is also known as the "Full Worm Moon." That's because: "The ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins."

As the weather keeps changing dramatically (one day it feels like summer, the next day it snows) here in the Pacific Northwest, I'm thinking of the Greek Goddess Hera (wife to Zeus/pictured) who is in charge of the the weather and changing seasons. She rules over every other aspect of existence as well. In fact the Milky Way reportedly spurts from her breasts. (It might be good to call upon her as you do your spell-work for those reasons, alone -- this Spring Moon night).

So here's how we let the "sap" flow as we woo Hera as though she were the virgin of Virgo, in order that she will take favor on us and grant our spell-wishes:
In Tarot wisdom, Hera is depicted on the "Lovers" card. There Zeus coerced Paris into deciding which Goddess was the most desirable: Hera (aka "Juno"), Athena or Aphrodite (aka "Venus"). Being a young and potent male, Paris chose Aphrodite due to her sexual alluring.

To Do: Gather: A writing utensil and paper for your spell-work. Look at the "Lovers" Tarot card (if you don't have a deck, you may click on the above underlined word for an image).

{Coven Mates: inquire of your pendulum if this "love letter" is most optimal for you to write. I guarantee -- if you are wise in spell-work and are open to receiving Hera's blessings -- that you will "get" that Hera would LOVE for you to perform the following task for her.}

Write a love letter to Hera. Explain why Paris should have have chosen Her before you conduct your spellwork. Then, as you do your full moon ritual -- when you ask Hera to bless your work -- you will already be in her favor.

Here's a few things I will be writing: Hera is:
  • More beautiful & Gorgeous than even Aphrodite (sorry Aphrodite, but I'm so over the need to lure strange young men into my bed)
  • Very relationship-oriented; and that's a powerful attribute!
  • Physically fit. You kept Zeus busy on his honeymoon for 300 years.
  • Magickal & resourceful: you restore your virginity annually by bathing in the sacred spring called "Kanathos."
  • You are so alluring even Zeus, God Supreme, seeks refuge in your lap!


Calendula Does The Haunted Hula {By SunTiger}

I know this blog entry is going to sound a little creepy and bizarre. I don't care. I purchased the Marigold (Calendula) seeds, pictured left from an "Heirloom" seed-seller on eBay.

When I first opened the package, I SWEAR these seeds were wiggling around like worms gone wild. I could not believe my eyes. It was like some sort of freakish omen.

Then I saw something else in the manila mailer-package and lo-and-behold it was pushy religious propaganda (a pamphlet) promoting a monotheistic religion in the most offensive and threatening sort of way; preaching hell and damnation.

Do I think the seller had some sort of bad intent toward my eBay store "SunTiger MOJO?" Psychically, I "get" this seller does not USUALLY put monotheistic crap in other people's packages (the seller's feedback suggests the same).

Something I've been exploring for a while, even consulting with other psychics about it, is the reality that people can perform black magick without even realizing it. Some Native American tribes teach that it's dangerous to harbor any ill will toward anyone (or entertain negative thoughts about someone) because of the likelihood of causing tangible harm. In the Middle East they believe in the "evil eye" where someone, just by harboring jealous thoughts, can create harm for the person they envy.

As a psychic -- who understands deeply that every thought generates energy -- I totally buy into the idea that ill-intended thoughts create really bad juju. This is why the Law of Attraction receives so much credit for making benefitial change in the lives of New Thought practitioners. This is why Pagans have always aligned their intent with their emotions (to manifest some desired magickal goal or otherwise generate positive change).

May you, dear Coven-Mate, pay attention to your thoughts and regularly FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE to create the best possible reality for your near and distant future.

A Spell to Draw to Your Web Page {by Fire Eagle}

To begin drawing customers to your web page, begin the spell by casting a sacred circle (can cast around your computer if you wish) chanting: "Bring to my web site from all corners of the earth, those who seek answers and find their worth".

On your sacred alter put a citrine or tiger eye gem (or both to draw wealth and abundance). Sit on or drape a sacred magical cloth during your call to magic to enhance the strength of your magic. Colors that add potency to this spell are purple, green and orange. Use them via candles, cloth, feathers (air), or any other item to help draw consumers to your site. The representation of air is important with this spell.

The essential oils for drawing to your site is jasmine. Call upon the four corners of the universe with emphasis on the East. (East is the most important direction for this spell because it is the most powerful with air). Ask the Gods/Goddesses and all magical creatures for their help and support of drawing people to your web site. It would be good to call for the help of the raven and the dove (represent air) to help bring and draw to your web site. Sweet grass is an important herb to burn on the alter to "draw" goodness to you as well. You can use the raven/dove feather to help fan the sweet grass to the other realms with your request.

There are two parts to this spell (both done within the circle if possible... if not able to cast a circle around your computer.....add the keyboard or mouse of your computer to the cast circle so the spell magic will include your computer) . One part of this spell is creating a charm for your computer and the other part of the spell is to type it (use dark green letters for wealth) on your web site's home page between the (head) and (body) tags (like hanging it around the web page's neck) with ancient geomantic glyphs that represent acquisition (magically acquires visitors or cash bearing customers to you) and conjunction (signifies the magical command to "acquire connections) enclosing them in comment code (). This will be invisible to your web page customers. The symbols (Arabic) are:


First line: Two asterics with 2 spaces between
Second line: One asteric between the two asterics in first row
Third line: Two asterics with 2 spaces between
Fourth line: One asteric between the two asterics in third row

First line: Two asterics with 2 spaces between
Second line: One asteric between the two asterics in first row
Third line: One asteric below the asterics in the second row
Fourth line: Two asterics with 2 spaces between

The charm spell is done on orange paper approximately 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" . Draw a spider web in black ink on the orange paper. When the black ink dries, create the Acquisitio and Conjunctio symbols in the web with purple ink dots. Anoint the edges of the paper with jasmine. Roll it in a scroll and tie it off with twine. Attach the charm to the computer with clear tape. (Empower the charm monthly with your spell refresh casting)

I get with great clarity that when we "add" something personal to a spell (anything we are inspired to add) we are going to cast, it adds potency to our intent (greater results in the magic that was cast).

To refresh your charm and spell monthly, cast a sacred circle (can do this around your computer with the charm and spell typed in) and call upon the Dieties (expecially air) to add renewed magical power to your spell for the month. Do a refresh if and when you have made any changes to your web page or site as well.

Please let CyberCoven know if this spell is successful for you.

Current Day Animal Totems {by Fire Eagle}

I sometimes envy the ease our ancestors had with being "one" with Mother Earth.

If they needed food for their evening meal, they would go into the forest seeking roots and berries, or possibly down to the river to spear a few fish for protein. Along their food-gathering journey, they may have crossed paths with a wild hare nibbling on fresh grass or with a beetle chirping nearby from a leaf; attempting to draw females toward him. They may have even come upon bear-tracks in the soft dirt near the river bank, knowing she-bear had just been there earlier for the same reason they had come to the the river bank.

It is no wonder that our ancestors were able to study the habits of the earth's creatures and gain wisdom from the animals and thus pass this wisdom down through the generations to guide us. Our ancestors' interaction with the animals was invaluable for their survival and spiritual wisdom.

In today's world, we hustle and bustle to and from places in our motor vehicles (radios blasting and/or kids crying) while rubber tires spin against hard cement. It's difficult to observe animal tracks there! As we travel, our minds wander from how important it is to get to where we are going on time, during peak traffic hours. If we're lucky, we might notice a seagull or crow flying overhead; perhaps searching for garbage that the humans have thrown away. We might see another person walking a dog at the side of the road; as their pet smells every mail box, lamp post or telephone pole for the scent of another dog.

In other words, our interaction with nature is dramatically more limited than it was for our ancestors.

In my personal search for becoming "one" with Mother Earth, I work in my garden. I feel grateful to greet all the worms with warm smiles knowing that they will be creating nourishing soil for my plants. I also may run into Mr. Mole's mound and frown because he has been tunneling through my yard and creating sunken alleys from his digging to eat the good worms that nourish my soil; or I possibly would see Mr. Beetle as he scurries away from me (can't say I wouldn't do the same if I was confronted with a giant) under a leaf or rock for protection; or I may be blessed with a dog barking from a neighbors yard -- letting me know that she sees me. All in all, this is the closest that I am able to get to animals on a daily basis.

My knowledge of animal totem wisdom comes from the teachings of our ancestors in books like "Animal Speak" (The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great & Small) by Ted Anderson.

Recently I have found more contact from the animal totem world in my Hot Yoga Class that I attend 3 - 4 times a week. During one of our Yoga positions in class, we are regularly instructed to relax every muscle and melt into the floor. During this 2 minute position, we are to look up at the ceiling and just "be" with ourselves and focus on our breath. As I gaze up at the ceiling tile, trying to find something to look at, I have found that animal pictures come to me from the tile. Usually 2 animal patterns appear to me on any given tile. Today, it was a crocodile and a blue jay. It was so vivid! I could hardly wait to go home and search out the message from the totem animals. Later in the class when we again are in the resting position, I am unable to find the animals that I saw earlier on the tile. It appears that they were able to get their message through and their job is now done.

The animals always appear during the same position and time during the class. Every class I attend, I am at a different spot in the classroom and so I am not looking at the same ceiling tile daily.

A few other animals have appeared on different days: Eagle, wolf, dolphin and pig. The message that each animal brings has been profound in my spiritual growth. I am not able to spend a lot of time in the woods and forests to interact daily with the animals, but I am able to daily receive messages from totem animals to guide me on my daily life path by looking for them in Yoga class!

If we are seeking guidance from our totem animals, they will come with a message.......even in ceiling tile!!

Blessed Be.
