Book of the Month

La Santa Muerte

by Tomás Prowler

Open the hauntingly beautiful cover and join Tomás Prowler as he explores the rich history, culture, and practical magic behind the devotees of La Santa Muerte, the Spirit of Death herself- and the patron saint of sinners. Currently a Los Angeles mortician, Prowler has traveled extensively through Latin America, working as a literary translator for the Universidad de Chile and as a cultural liaison for the French government. Throughout his travels, Prowler has studied magical and religious practices all over the globe, developing his own style of cross-cultural spell-crafting practices. A devotee of La Santa Muerte himself, Prowler offers a unique perspective into esoteric Latin American mysticism and the millions of people who worship Death.

La Santa Muerte is divided into three parts, the first of which explores the cross-cultural sociology of how humans have interacted with death, and how those interactions have changed as we have entered into the modern age. Part I delves into Santa Muerte philosophy, the interconnected web of life and the supreme neutrality of death, and how the equalizing eye of La Santa Muerte has attracted followers not always understood by the mainstream society- feminists and criminals, soldiers and members of the LGBT community. Part I also compares La Santa Muerte to other cultural personifications of feminine Death, tracing her Roman Catholic as well as indigenous origins. Prowler describes the clandestine devotion to La Santa Muerte, the oral tradition of prayers and spells, and the importance of a personal connection to Death before he begins to tell of the recorded history of Santa Muerte groups in the Americas. In Part II, Prowler turns to practice: the various names and complex symbology of La Santa Muerte, as well as the tools of the trade. Prowler guides the reader through candles, incense, plants, and minerals used in spellwork, and suggests methods of blessing tools necessary to awaken magical properties and pay respect to their origins. Outlining the practical magic of the Santa Muerte tradition, Prowler describes altars and offerings to La Santa Muerte, and the diversity of methods practitioners worship both communally and individually. Finally, in Part III, Prowler discusses the anatomy of Santa Muerte spellwork, breaking down the components of a spell, describing it as both an art and a science. Part III is broken by chapter into the most common types of spellwork done by devotees of La Santa Muerte, such as money magic, love magic, lust magic, and protection magic. Prowler guides the reader step-by-step through spells by category, suggesting tools and prayers, as well as important mindsets for effective magic.

Prowler closes by discussing a cornerstone of La Santa Muerte philosophy- that death, as it looms above us, has a particular motivational power. The inevitability of death encourages us to take action, empower ourselves to make a difference while we can. By remembering that nothing lasts forever, devotees of La Santa Muerte appreciate the special in the normal, empowered by their own mortality. In a thoughtfully crafted journey through the complexities of Santa Muerte tradition, Tomás Prowler keeps the newcomer in mind and uses the unique experiences of his practices and travels to bring an important cross-cultural perspective to the table. A highly recommended read, both to enrich and delight.

Herb of the Month

Sage

Sage is a wonderful cooking herb for cooler weather! It helps defend us from colds and flu, coughs, sore throats, even arthritis, inhibiting sweat, to increase estrogen and aid the adrenals in picking up their estrogen production in women in their late 50’s and early 60’s. It can certainly be added to herbal teas, but it is just as easy to cook with it, so add sage to soups, baked and roasted chickens, roasted vegetables, and more! This is a great herb for food and for us!

Oil of the Month

Rosemary Oil

An evergreen, one legend says that rosemary was a study aid in ancient Greece, worn behind the ear in preparations for exams. It was thought to improve memory...and guess what? Modern studies bear this out! A little rosemary essential oil, or a sprig of the fresh herb does help recall.

Stone of the Month

Tiger's Eye

Rising up to the challenge of our Rivals, it's the Eye of the Tiger (or Tiger's Eye), that brings confidence, commitment, and willingness to manifest the needed changes.

Talisman of the Month

Egyptian Eye

The Udjat is one of the oldest known symbols of protection. It was used extensively in the art of Ancient Egypt and was commonly worn as a talisman. When pictured as a right eye, it represents the all-seeing eye of Ra, the sun god. As a left eye, it represents the eye of Horus, who had his left eye gouged out and then magically restored, symbolizing the phases of the moon. Use this powerful talisman as the ancients did, as a symbol of divine protection and healing.

This month in Astrology...

September promises to bring some potent waves of (deeply productive) revolutionary unrest.

The Sun spends most of September in Virgo (entering Libra 9/22). Virgo is the Mutable Earth sign ruled by Mercury, planet of communications, short journeys, and practical efficiency. Virgo is the sign in our charts that helps us to get our ducks in a row, organize our schedules, create more effective habits, and tidy things up. This month promises to bring some challenges to these departments for all of us, and the central key that we’re asked to grasp (while simultaneously upping our efficiency game) goes something like this: “Whatever reality models you’ve built, know that they’re all temporary. The keys to deeper visions of truth are inside, but they’re not to be found in your rational mind. Reality isn’t what you think it is.”

The Sun, Mercury, Mars, and Venus all spend most of the month in rational detail-oriented Virgo, and all complete disruptive oppositions with that god of illusion (and/or enlightenment), Neptune in Pisces (on the 5th, 19th ,24th , and 30th respectively). Neptune is a doorway to the unconscious (where the consciousness patterns and beliefs that are running various shows in our collective play, but not so consciously). Boundaries dissolve when the volume’s cranked up on Neptune, and familiar rules of time and space break down. Invest some time in developing your psychic faculties and tuning your trans-rational spiritual heart this month. The jokes the gods play this month can help to shine some light on deeper treasures you’ve got buried.

Mercury’s retrograde period will be ending during our Full Moon in Pisces on the 5th, but the trickster’s disruptive and feather-ruffling influences are going to be strong all month (the worry-inspiring side of it will be particularly strong through the 17th). Releasing comfortable (and misery-perpetuating) habit patterns is the heart of the assignment.

The Sun enters solidarity-generating Libra on the 22nd, turning our collective attention to the final pass of an opposition between myth-making Jupiter in connection-oriented Libra and rebellious Uranus in “my way or the highway” Aries. This aspect speaks of a culmination regarding revolutionary calls for a better world that got started right around the time of the Arab Spring in 2010 (remember Occupy Wall Street, and all kinds of other uprisings around the world?) What does “Power to the People” look like in your best possible reality model? Maybe there are some more interesting alternatives to the Civil War reboot that seems to be getting rolling here…

The times are getting weirder, one way or the other. Please take some time to make that weirder more beautiful, uplifting, and humorous. The screenplay of our collective is really ready for a little more inspired magic, and the time is ripe.

Blessings,
Saleem
