Tarot of the Morning Star

Tarot of the Morning Star

The illustrations of the Tarot of the Morning Star are visual representations of specific frequencies resonating with their corresponding worlds. They can be compared to specific stations on a radio dial. However, unlike the radio receiver that only presents the ghost voices of disembodied entities we cannot see, the images of the Morning Star tarot cards offer the experience of hallucinated voices, vision and emotion: the source of the transmission. We can see, hear, feel and communicate directly with the entity and are not limited by time and space. Observers may find themselves thrown into alien landscapes, standing beneath strange skies bejeweled with unknown constellations where our laws of geometry and physics do not function.

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.

Review by Olivia, Magus Minion

Herb of the Month

Ginger

Ginger is great all winter long! When the hands and feet are cold a cup of ginger tea can warm things up perfectly. Add a little sweetener and perhaps a few other herbs and make a great drink to warm up on a cold winter day. Ginger is even thought to help fight off colds and flu when taken because of a little chill! Of course, ginger is also great with nausea, motion sickness, and more. Need ginger and can’t get to it? Pick a up chai tea, they often have ginger in them!

Oil of the Month

Camphor Oil

Camphor essential oil is traditionally used to clear the lungs and ease aching joints. Just a 2 to 3 drops to a bath for congested, gunky lungs or for sore, aching joints. It can be applied to aching joints – but only diluted! It can even be rubbed on the chest once it is diluted. A good dilution? Just a drop or two in a four ounce bottle of a base oil like olive oil or grapeseed oil. With camphor a little goes a long way.

Stone of the Month

Snowflake Obsidian

Snowflake Obsidian is a stone often used to help one resolve harmful thought patterns. It helps one to deal with grief, and shields one from oppressive negativity.

Statue of the Month

Ganesha

Ganesha is a jovial Remover of Obstacles. Known for having the head of an elephant, some stories say that Ganesha was created from Shiva's laughter. Residing in the Root Chakra, Ganesha helps to support and guide all the other chakras. Use this God of New Beginnings to clear your path to expanding in joyous ways, in all aspects of life!

Talisman of the Month

Invisibility

Sometimes we need to be discrete or not be noticed, be it in our spiritual work or mundane life. This pendant of invisibility, from the renowned book of talismanic magick, the Black Pullet, is said to “make you invisible to all eyes, even those of the spirits.” While we can attest that it won’t render the wearer literally invisible, it is useful for remaining inconspicuous when needed.

This month in Astrology...

The Sun (and Venus, Mercury, and Saturn!) spend most of December in Sagittarius, the fire sign that helps us to develop confidence to explore new frontiers, and to find faith in the worth of our ideals and the strength of our convictions. Infusions of creativity and inspired vision (fire’s magic) are ripe for the picking this month, despite some very confusing astroweather.

The wise ruler of Sagittarius, Jupiter (newly in Scorpio) makes its first exact trine to mystical Neptune in Pisces on the 3rd. This transcendental aspect will perpetuate some beautiful stories of soul-awakening and healing release over the next 11 months. We’re in a time that’s asking us to update reality models that are no longer serving. Deeper truths are bubbling up in our psycho-emotional experiences, and can help us learn how to let go and find our flow, even when things are crashing down around us.

The Full Moon in Gemini on the morning of the 3rd is closely square to Neptune in Pisces, cranking up the volume on reality-bending strangeness for a bit. Spiritual insights and beautiful downloads are available, but confusions about time, space, who said what, and misplaced guesses about intentions are likely. This Moon is accompanied by a flurry of befuddling intensity, as willful Mars in Libra opposes explosive Uranus in Aries on the first, and Mercury slows to go retrograde (‘til the 22nd) for a long and fussy conjunction with Saturn in Sagittarius (through the 9th). Some uncomfortable disagreements are liable to test our patience and our boundaries.

Mercury’s retrograde adventure in Sagittarius is asking some important questions: What righteous opinions can you loosen your grip on? What important studies and teachers have you let sit on the shelf for too long? Regrets from long ago might come to the surface- which of your myths about this life have you given too much power away to? What long-range visions need some adjustments? What parts of you are ready to step onto a larger stage?

Mars moves from Libra (where he’s been since Oct 22nd, encouraging us to ask more adamantly for what we need,and to seek peaceful resolutions) into Scorpio on the 9th. This shift will call us to face with renewed patience and dedication those stuck spots we have buried inside. The dramas and traumas around sex and power that are coming to the fore in our collective have lessons with buried treasures hidden in them for all of us. Connect with your primal animal nature, and ask the deep wisdom of the living Earth to awaken in your tissues.

A big new chapter is getting started this month as our Sagittarius New Moon on the 18th prefaces Saturn’s entrance into Capricorn on the 19th and the Winter Solstice on the 21st. The practical earth element comes to the fore for the last 10 days of the month, and as Mercury gets to moving forward again, we’ll have a chance to start this new adventure of responsibility-owning Saturn in his home sign of grounded Capricorn (for the next 2.5 years) with intentional clarity. Have an early “New Year’s” ceremony (or three) on the morning of the 18th (and maybe also on the 19th and 21st) and plant some big wishes and seeds of intention (or resolutions…if you like that word). You’ll be amazed by what gets to sprouting if you prepare the soil ahead of time.

This holiday season might just include some beautifully healing reunions. Use the time leading up to it to enlarge your view on the larger meanings of your life’s story, and to forgive some of those ghosts in your closet (and some of those jerks who you still care about).

Blessed be,
Saleem
