Merry Meet and Welcome
Thank you for taking the time to stop by. If you've been here before, you know what you're looking for and if you're new to the site, take a few minutes and look around. Things get changed quite a bit from time to time, so please stop by every so often and see what's new.
The Stirring the Cauldron show pages are updated each week, there's a new weekly Oracle card reading every Monday here on the Home Page, and one of my New Years resolutions is to blog more often. Let's see how that goes!
Bright blessings to you and yours.
Here is your Witch's Oracle card reading for this week.
Come back every Monday For A New Weekly Reading
If, by chance, a card repeats two weeks in a row, it usually means you haven't taken the message to heart and tried to resolve things in the manner it suggested the first time it showed up.
If this card resonates with you and you want to reinforce its meaning, place your finger on the card and recite the incantation written below. If you have the corresponding crystal/stone in your hand
as listed below, so much the better!
Through the ages, countless magical powers have been attributed to bells. To the people of the Middle Ages, the supernatural world was very real and close. Mystical powers were attributed to countless objects, including bells. Even long after the medieval era, the Church itself condoned the use of bells to frighten away evil spirits. Typical of this belief was the "passing bell" rung for the dead to keep evil spirits from molesting the body.
Sound is vibration and vibrations are important, especially in magick. To help achieve the right vibrations, the right mood or frequency, it helps to actually ring a bell. It is also rung to halt storms or evoke good energies. Placed in cupboards or hung on the door, they guard the home.
Because bells are also used as a warning and a device to draw our attention, don’t ignore its symbolism at this time. Think of this bell as an alarm. You are being alerted to a situation that needs your immediate attention.
Incantation: I hear the warning and will comply, before it does intensify. If I do this with lightning speed, I most certainly will succeed.
Corresponding Stone: Malachite
Folklore records that if a piece of malachite breaks, it is a warning of impending danger. This stone has a resonant, harmonizing quality, like that of a bell; it serves as both an advisory and a guide when you have need for it. Carry malachite to strengthen your resolve to stay safe when warnings arise.
