Making the Homeless smile, a movement to spread :)

• SATURDAY, words for the weekend:

« I always have time to say something kind to the people I meet, to pat my dog, to enjoy just relaxing…to appreciate my life! » Write these words in red ink on a sheet of white paper and keep it on you all weekend. Whenever you get an opportunity, take a few moments to imagine yourself in a life situation to which these words might apply. On Sunday evening, burn the paper, after reading it one last time.

• FRIDAY, find your soul-mate:

get 7 red candles, a white rose, a red apple, a piece of rose quartz, a photo of yourself and a little red pouch. Sit down with these things in front of you, in view of the crescent moon.  Light the candles. Eat the apple while conjuring up in your mind a detailed (and realistic) picture of the person you want to meet. Keep 7 of the pips of the apple. Cut out your image from the photo in the shape of a heart. Take the rose and pick its petals one by one, describing out loud one characteristic of the person you seek with each one. Put the pips, the quartz, the photo and the petals into the pouch and close it completely. Hold it against your heart and say: « The face of the one I love will soon be revealed to me, even though I may not learn their name tonight. I will finally meet my soul-mate. Come to me, love of mine, you are my destiny, may it be so! » Hide the pouch away and slip the pouch into your pocket every Friday.

• THURSDAY, take care of your hair:

if your hair’s looking a bit dry and damaged, or lacking in vitality, the Moon can give it back its shine and vigour. This is a good time to book in for a haircut and to apply a conditioning treatment, such as neutral silicone gel.

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

• WEDNESDAY, a positive affirmation:

stop saying things like: « I don’t get involved in what others are doing… », and instead say: « If I can do something to help out someone who needs it, then I will. » Refusing to help other people is actually like cutting yourself out of the flow of life. It also means you may find yourself alone when you need a favour, because no one is going to offer to assist you if you’ve turned them down in the past. It’s not about interfering, just being there for your friends, when they need you, and enriching your own life in the process.

• TUESDAY: think ahead to the winter:

if you have a garden, you might start thinking about sowing seeds for root vegetables this Tuesday, such as winter turnips which will remain in the earth until they are ready for harvest, protected from the first frost by some mulch. Keep the earth cool and moist to ensure they flourish.

Sunday, August 25, 2013

• MONDAY, the Moon’s influence:

Sunday August 25th, the Moon in Aries will bring luck on the lottery and games of chance.  You should avoid undergoing an operation on these days. On the other hand, your marital happiness is guaranteed. This is a good time to treat sun-damaged hair and perhaps an after-sun moisturising cream on your skin.  

On Monday August 26th and Tuesday 27th the Moon is in Taurus which will augur well for any long-term plans you may have, but you will have to choose your words carefully and avoid dragging up the past. Resist the temptation to tell everyone your plans – make them your secret. You can’t trust anyone but yourself. You may want to play some sport, or try a new activity or leisure pursuit. 

On Wednesday August 28th and Friday August 30th, the Moon in Gemini will set the scene for love and it is even possible you may meet someone who will be very important to you. Go out with your friends, dance and have fun with your friends at every opportunity. Make the most of this day to recharge your batteries - perhaps you might enjoy a body treatment, a massage, waxing or something else entirely! 

On Saturday August 31st, the Moon is in Cancer, potentially making sparks fly at home, in the form of annoyances and arguments within the family…

• SATURDAY, words for the weekend:

« I use every moment of my spare time in a useful and pleasant way. » Write these words in red ink on a sheet of white paper and keep it on you all weekend. Whenever you get an opportunity, take a few moments to imagine yourself in a life situation to which these words might apply. On Sunday evening, burn the paper, after reading it one last time.

• FRIDAY, protect your pet:

take a white candle, a brown candle, a little water, a pinch of cinnamon and some lavender incense sticks. Then light the white candle and the incense. Speak the following words, three times over: « Anaël, Archangel! Protect this little animal, whose name is… (say the name of type of animal concerned), and make sure no harm ever comes to him/her. May he/she be saved from pain and accidents and live a long and healthy life. May it be so! » Then, throw the cinnamon into the water and stir well. Light the brown candle and repeat the prayer. Finally, snuff out the candles and mix the water into your pet’s food.

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

• THURSDAY, a positive affirmation:

stop saying: « I never have time to do anything! », and start saying instead: « I no longer need to get every single thing done… ». These days we feel that to « make the most of life » we have to do as much as possible…Many people end up designing a stressful life that they hate, that exhausts them but from which they cannot escape. Draw up a list of your priorities, leave behind what you need to leave behind and you’ll find you actually achieve more when you take things at your own pace.

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

• WEDNESDAY, Full Moon infusion:

this is the point in the lunar cycle when we tend to feel more on edge and have trouble sleeping…Here is a calming infusion to drink after your evening meal, to counter the stress of the Full Moon: drop 3 healthy leaves of fresh basil into a cup and cover with boiling water, leave to infuse for 5 minutes, then drink.

• TUESDAY, protect your house against burglars:

gather a white candle, some lavender incense sticks, a few cloves and a pouch made of green fabric. Then burn the incense. Light the white candle and drop the cloves into the flame. Then repeat the following, three times over: « My hone is protected against theft, from wind and high tide, from everything. This is my will, may it be so! » Then snuff out the candle, put the cloves into the green pouch and hang it over the main door to your house.

• MONDAY, the Moon’s influence:

On Sunday August 18th and Monday 19th, the Moon in Capricorn will augur well if you are travelling. These are great days for marriages or other forms of union, and excellent for signing a contract or lease. 

On Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st, the Moon in Aquarius will leave you feeling fragile and vulnerable to the aggressive behaviour of certain people. If you have a trip planned, there is a risk of delays and breakdowns. Suffer these annoyances patiently. You may find you benefit greatly from paying attention to what you eat, seeking out new products, tastes and flavours. Book in for a haircut and manicure. 

On Wednesday 21st, the full moon will lead you to see your dreams in a new light, inspiring your intuition. A lunar fast would be beneficial, as would a detox diet and a period abstinence from alcohol. 

On Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd the Moon is in Pisces and you will see any undertaking you enter into on those days through to the end. 

On Saturday 24th the Moon is in Aries, which will not bode well for a wedding. Use this time to protect yourself from abusive relationships. This is also a bad choice of day for launching a project.

Friday, August 16, 2013

• SATURDAY, words for the weekend:

« I have all the determination, time and knowledge to achieve all my goals! » Write these words in red ink on a sheet of white paper and keep it on you all weekend.

• FRIDAY, protect your job:

if your job is at risk, or if you’re looking for a new position, make sure all your plans and hopes go the way you want and bring their happy conclusion nearer: on a Friday, at sunset, plunge an onion into a bowl of water so that it comes half way up the side of the bulb. Focus your attention on it for ten minutes or so, looking at it while thinking of your wish or your plan, then put it somewhere no one will touch it.  Change the water every Friday and observe the plant. If it’s growing, your wish will be fulfilled. Onion is reputed to have many magical properties, but it is particularly known for its power to attract prosperity.

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

• THURSDAY, a positive affirmation:

stop saying things like: « My life is passing me by… », and instead start saying: « I savour every minute of my day! » If you’re not careful, it’s all to easy for each day to slip into the next without really being aware of the time passing. If we pack our days with endless jobs and plans we may think we’re super-organised, when in fact we are just letting time slip by and failing to live life in the moment.

• WEDNESDAY, ward off bad luck:

go into the forest and pick or gather 13 pine needles. Back home, light a white candle and put the pine needles in your mouth, chew them for a few minutes then spit them into a glass of water and say the following words: « Banish this bad luck from my life – let this vile curse be done. Return this malignance to its dark source! May it be so! » Then snuff out the candle and throw the water down the loo.

• TUESDAY, use your intuition:

if there’s something you’ve lost that you’d like to find, prepare a white candle and a purple candle, frankincense incense, powdered dandelion and a bowl of very hot water. Light the white candle and the incense. Place the hot water in front of you and drop a pinch of dandelion powder into it as you speak the following words: « I am ready to be drawn towards my lost … (the lost item) which I want to find and which I have given up searching for. May it be so! » Light the purple candle and repeat the request. Gently drink a mouthful of the hot water. Snuff out the candles, leaving the incense to burn.  Don’t think about the lost item for a few days, and in just a few days, it will appear.

• MONDAY, the Moon’s influence:

On Sunday August 11th and Monday 12th, the Moon is in Libra will make your feelings more acute. Be warned, you may discover that someone is plotting against you. These two days may herald a difficult time for your friendships. You may experience disappointment or get a nasty surprise: you never really know people! Give your body some time and attention, treating your skin, hair and nails. Find a weight-loss programme that suits your body type and shape - it’s quite possible to enjoy eating good food and look after your body at the same time. 
On Tuesday 13th, Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th, the Moon in Scorpio will sharpen your intuition, making you vividly perceptive. Don’t be surprised if you find a few long-lost objects. This is a good day for spells aimed at freeing you from bad luck as well as being conducive to getting your paperwork up to date.  
On Friday 16th and Saturday 17th, the Moon is in Sagittarius, auguring well for major projects. You may want to set your sights on a promotion. This is a good time for job-hunting: update your CV.

• FRIDAY, have a clear-out at home:

you can favour the positive energy in your home by tidying up on a regular basis. Piles of stuff everywhere, objects left forgotten in corners and the back of the wardrobe and dust on the furniture can become « nests » where negative vibrations and harmful energies can gather and take root. It may take a bit of time and energy, but organisation at home is vital to allow renewal in your life. 
Now the holidays are here you can make time for it! While you’re tidying and cleaning, imagine you are clearing out all your woes, all your negative thoughts and the problems that are holding you back in life. As you wash and put things away, visualise the order that is coming over your life. As you throw away things that are old and broken, leaving behind everything that’s no longer useful or needed, visualise how you are freeing yourself of the weight of the problems of your past. The results are guaranteed.

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

• THURSDAY, a positive affirmation:

stop saying things like: « My life is so boring… », and instead start saying: « Tomorrow is another day… » It’s important to celebrate the way our life can change from one day to the next and avoid blocking this amazing energy with your lack of enthusiasm. Make space in your world for life to inspire you! Try, to every day, do something that makes you happy!

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

• WEDNESDAY, love at first sight:

make a little pouch out of red fabric and place a red rose and a handful of coarse sea salt inside. Tie it with a red ribbon and tuck it under your mattress, on the side you sleep. The love you have been waiting for will burst into your life. The red rose is the symbol of passion and salt magnifies its power.

Monday, August 5, 2013

• TUESDAY, be protected as you travel:

the wood of the ash tree is reputed to repel danger and protect you on journeys. Slip a piece of ash into each of your suitcases and another in your pocket before you set off. If you are travelling by sea and have a fear of water, string a piece of ash around your neck to guard against seasickness. Ash is a very positive and beneficial wood symbolising solidity. According to tales of Greek mythology, both Achilles’ spear and Cupid’s bow were fashioned from ash.

Sunday, August 4, 2013

• MONDAY, the Moon’s influence:

On Sunday 4th and Monday 5th, with the Moon in Cancer, you should avoid acting on impulse without thinking things through properly. Avoid any plans that involve last minute preparations and spur of the moment invitations. 

On Tuesday 6th, Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th, the Moon in Leo will make you vulnerable to falling in love. 

On Tuesday August 6th (the Black Moon) the lunar influence will gather strength in the sign of Leo. 

On Friday 9th and Saturday 10th, the Moon in Virgo makes the time right for a thorough sort through your possessions. You should consider performing a purification ritual for your home and your person. Sunday is a time for rest and relaxation and a family meal. This is a good time for working on a new project or planning a holiday.

August 1st to 3rd

• THURSDAY, the Moon’s influence: on Thursday 1st, Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd August the Moon is in Gemini, with the potential to bring unpleasant encounters and unwanted guests into your home. Be on your guard against thieves and smooth-talking tricksters! Be wary as someone quite close to you, who you trust too much and who is not at all the friend they claim to be, may try to dupe you. Purification rituals at home, sorting and organising your possessions are highly recommended.

It is made for you and you alone, nobody else should use it. To make your pentacle you’ll need: a piece of white card measuring 10 x 10 cm, an ink pen and red ink and a red candle. Light the candle and say: « With this flame I light up my soul in the light of the Sun; Ray of truth, ray of knowledge, ray of nature, be with me in my endeavours, in my mind and my being. May the triple candle of grace light up my soul and protect me from problems and jealousies.
