Spell a Day – Feb 25th 2016

Prosperity: The state of being prosperous.

Why do we torture ourselves like this with our words?

Prosperous: successful in material terms; flourishing financially.

Ok, now that that is out of the way Gentle Readers, today is supposed to be about a prosperity altar, in order to bring prosperity to your home. I wonder how many times I can get away with using the word prosperity before the lynch mob shows up?

So, this goes along with yesterday’s post in my opinion. No spell or ritual is going to force financial success into your life. Unless you believe God grants prayers for winning lottery tickets, then you are just incredibly lucky. If you feel this will happen to you (that God will grant you the winning numbers of you pray hard enough), then you are just a special kind of snowflake and we all love you. Now please, take your crayons to the table and stop eating them.

What it takes to become successful is hard work, determination, maybe a little luck, but it is more about seizing an opportunity when it is presented to you. Take that big risk and place your bet on yourself. The only sure thing is how much effort you are willing to put forth to reach your dreams and goals.

I’m not going to continue to beat this horse today my Gentle Readers. Go out there and make this a day that you chase your dreams. As they say, Reach for the Moon and even if you fail, you land among the Stars.


Spell a Day – Jan 3rd 2016

January 3rd, the first Sunday of the new year. A day normally dedicated to rest (and football). It was also the peak of the Quadrantids meteor shower. The origination of this annual meteor shower is in the constellation Bootes.

Much discussion abounds about the naming of this constellation. Homer referred to it the “late setting” or “slow to set” and it was used as a reference point for navigation. Bootes is sometimes thought to be a child of Demeter, or even Icarius the winemaker. Either way, it is associated with hard work leading to success in some fashion. That of a hunter, or as a winemaker even Dionysus himself was proud of.

2016 is going to be a year of hard work and I hope for many steady successes both personally and professionally. Discipline will be important in this. So far I am not doing so well. I wanted to be caught up on these spell a day posts before returning to work on Monday but that isn’t going to happen. Looks like I could use a little bit of Bootes assistance in my life.

What assistance could you use from Bootes this year? What areas of your life could you use some more discipline? Go forth and make this year great for you gentle readers. I leave you with an image of Bootes, which can be seen with the naked eye, borrowed from Wikipedia.
