So Gosh Darn Magickal.
Baring in, mind that one Mages Maigck is another mages dull dream...
I have a story,..Love to give it a go when it comes to the "Making it Real" in the magical world, I let forth a shoal of Sigils, leaving educational learnedness aside and calling on that right brain. I set my space, called some Ancestors and boom, the cat dragged in a sparrow. Squeals from the kids, yowls from the cat and "Oh my" from me. Duly dealt with and back to work, only this time housework, a lovely time of Grandma Magick.
Now bare in mind, this strand of my journey is around producing a piece of work that contributes to peoples and my own energy, without my feeling attacked, hurt, bitter or shut down. How many years of Shadow Work should it take? If I'm not allowed to float along in my 5d Joy Bubble, without continual, snipeing at my animals, kids and finances, then what's the point?
In need of a Hero and a finding of Others, I heard the Call and joined Rune Soup. If you haven't checked this out, you might like too, HERE
I closely followed the Sigils course, from Rune Soup, which made some sigil stuff easier, over thought other bits, grabbed Planetary prayers, (Rewritten a few. Mars, bellicose, really?), I did say this was a story.
Planetary guides, prayers, houses and days aligned, love my friends, so Friday was the day, I thought to be full on pomp and ritual for my next attempt, or sigil shoal sending session. Wanting to be at, Spark of Dawn as prepped as possible. Angel and Spirit of the day, researched, Venus, where does one get a Swan, a Dove or a Sparrow from? Oh my goodness, (first Magickal Moment) did not the cat bring in a sparrow a while back?, Eww don't be silly, the bird was long digested, but a beautiful wing remained.
Any how, thoughts of the relationship with the Angel and Spirit of the day, were on my mind and I searched and researched on the Angel Agatahael... Nothing just a vague hint of a Saint, maybe, St Agatha. So who is she? Remember, I'm finding Others.
Born 231 died 251, shoot that's young.
Feast day 5th February
I was born in February
Patron Saint of
Apparently, Agatha decided whilst in her teens, she was simply not going to get married, have sex etc, but would in fact become a Bride to Christ and reserve her Virginity for him. And so ensues a lot of drama, all readily Google able.
And so begins her second set of attributes (Magickal Moment three)
Patron Saint of
So, now we have a declared sovereign soul, the magickal synchs piling on and that's me climbing on board, For a Saint? But, Holy Mary Mother of God.
Now, multiply by the Breasts being incised under torture, with body being rolled in a fire of pot shards, and the whole Bell Founders thing, becoming downright ominous, in a Tin Foil Hat way. Hot pincers and fire being found in foundry's, and the bell shaped breast, for ringing forth and making real, then the whole there's a lump, lets lop it off, capitalized on by an ad campaign and buying into a possibly unnecessary foundation, (foundry) and do we need to set etymology into play?
So yes, I'm making acquaintance with a young lady, for whom I made a balm of Aloe Vera and honey (at her bequest, with a touch of Rum at Saint Cyprian's, as he came to the tea party also).
Saint Agatha is connected. When she died powerful earthquakes were experienced and I have been through several of those, I fully intend to support in the healing of this young lady. I'm unsure if she is even happy and freewilled In her Role of Patron. How bound to this earth is she? Would she rather be free? Was she adopted as a later ritual participant? Has she had Justice? Is part of the unveiling of Pedophiles and Rapists happening at the moment attributable to her intercession?
I have spoke her prayer a couple of times, I'm not happy with the words at all, I don't like being "Free from All things which hold us bound to the Earth", I rather like it here. and I am happy to leave the "Rising to the Heavenly Courts" for as long as possible. But if you should like to make this young ladies acquaintance...
THE NOVENA PRAYER:
O glorious St Agatha, who remained faithful to Our Lord even unto death, intercede for me as thou dost rejoice in the reward of thy virtues. Cast a glance of pity on (me /mention the person afflicted with cancer or other serious breast ailment) and grant my petition, if such be the will of God. Make my/her troubles into thine own. Plead for the grace yearned for ardently, and for a blessing that may strengthen me/her during life, so to assist me/her to lead a faithful life, so that, one day, I/she may join you in eternity to behold the Source of Eternal Joy.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

So a couple of days of Magick, and a new Acquaintance. Thank you to all of those praying for me. I think I may have a new ally, to help me pray for you.
Much much love
