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.

Herb of the Month

Patchouli

This herb comes from India and was prized early on for its ability to help other scents stay around. In ayurvedic medicine it is used to prevent illness and calm the nerves. It has helped some with insomnia, low sex drive, and poor appetite. If you like patchouli, buy a few ounces and seal them in a jar with instructions taped to it to not open it for at least three years.

Oil of the Month

Basil Oil

Basil is a wonderful little herb that packs a powerful punch! It opens the lungs, removing mucus—pretty helpful at this time of year. Basil cleanses digestion, moving gas out. It helps the body to get rid of toxins—especially toxins stored in fats—and cools the body.

Stone of the Month

Labradorite

A companion to change, this stone balances and protects ones aura. It raises conciousness, while grounding spiritual insights. Phenomenal stone for strengthening intution and promoting psychic abilities.

Statue of the Month

Hecate

Hecate, Goddess of Witchcraft & Magick, ruler of the Night and goddess of the Moon and a guide to other Goddesses cast into the Underworld. She was Hades' powerful companion, not to be taken lightly.

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...

October starts with a breath of fresh (but still pretty intense) air, before another storm gets started mid-month. Our earth-shaking, reality-bending opposition between Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries (started Dec. ’16) has officially passed (Sept. 27th), and we’ve got a little bit of freedom to fly with some newly opened vistas of perception.

“Earthquakes and hurricanes (and a whole lot of pathological sabre rattlings, and racist and nationalistic crackpotness…) oh my!” have been turning a lot of lives (and comfortable insides) inside out. We are in a time of consciousness revolution, and October offers some chances to spark deep solidarity with and awakenings to these new calls (if we take the time to listen).

Jupiter (teacher of big meaningful lessons and explorer of new frontiers) is leaving connection-oriented Libra this month to enter shadow-facing Scorpio (on the 10th). Jupiter is the heart of the collective, and its opposition to rebellious Uranus has been sounding a clarion call to the spirit of freedom in all hearts. Lessons about the shackles of inequality and flavors of passionate revolution that we’ve met with over the past year (think Black Lives Matter as well as Trump getting elected) are bearing more meaningful fruits now. Punchlines are being delivered to prepare us for the transformative shadow-facing and soul-embodying feats we can accomplish as Jupiter moves through Scorpio (‘til Nov. 8th, 2018).

The Sun spends most of the month in connection-seeking, feather-unruffling Libra. Get your recharge on with the new fall colors, and send some thank-you notes to Mother Nature (for all of her beautiful mysteries). Stoke those circuits of connection to empowering co-creators with inspiration and love. Get on the dance floor (or on a plane to someplace you’ve never visited), and send lines out to those butterflies who will help you to challenge the limited boundaries of your social comfort zone.

Venus and Mars come together for a conjunction in Virgo during the Full Moon in Aries on the 5th. Gifts of social endeavoring and relationship growing will be received, and new seeds will also be planted. All relationships take work, and this conjunction can help us to learn more about how “the gift is in the giving.” Venus and Mars move into Libra this month (on the 14th and 22nd respectively), and exciting sparks will be flying with all kinds of new love connections that get started. Give your attention to the beauty of this world, and invite new life into all of your interactions.

The Sun’s move into Scorpio on the 23rd is followed by a conjunction with Jupiter on the 26th, illuminating the need for transformations in our systems of commerce, value-creation, and power. It’s time to face the shadows of the profit motive in our world, and generate deeper definitions of shared value.

Note: The Halloween costumes are going to be extravagant and poignant this year. Make sure to get magical with yours if you get a chance: What’s your deep truth-telling, value-creating super power? What might that look like in costume form? Maybe it could be funny…?

It’s going to be a strikingly memorable Halloween, one way or another!

Blessings,
