I have a ritual planned for today. I’m making my first wand. Sounds Harry Potter-esque but I’m hoping to dive into the psychic realms of the astral and imagination. Expanding in the sphere of Luna. This is a direct result of initiating into her. I desire to open up that sphere expanding my potentiate. Synchronicity I crave like a hungry dog.
Last night I initiated into Mercury. Burning incense under the stars at the auspicious hour of 10pm. I read the Orphic hymn to Hermes and ad libbed a prayer of my desires and in honor of him. We then read from the 6th and 7th Books of Moses, learnin’ some majiks!
I’ve felt down at work lately. Like I can’t get in the mood. I’m not falling behind. I just don’t feel quite with it. I’m not enthused, as the 19th century New Age pioneers would recommend one be. I’m distracted. I was hoping Mercury could help but also it felt like a good time to initiate into that sphere anyway. I’ve been planning this wand activity today for a month, waiting for the moon to get right. We’ll see if a string of magical work helps my mood.
I am excited for the hoodoo classic, 6th and 7th Book of Moses. I’m also working on a magical project of trying to project the power of the star Arcturus into a material object to receive a dream on it’s occult powers. Two days in a row now and nothing. I’m familiar with its inclusion of the constellation Bootes, the herdsman, driving the stellar bears of the sky, the Big and Little Dipper. Tonight I will try harder. Similar to the ‘spirits of the morning’ I made this up as well. Maybe it doesn’t have occult powers. Maybe I’m too tight. I’ll try again tonight. Why would someone herd bears?
