On the third day of Yule the Goddess gave to me... The High Priestess
Wisdom, knowledge, learning, intuition, purity, virtue. The Owl is a keeper of knowledge, and he bears a key to unlock mysteries. The pomegranate is an icon of Persephone, who tasted the seeds and thus tied herself to Hades -- it is a fruit of fertility and death; and the moons embroidered upon her garments wax and wane. The new crescent, and gibbous moon that create the full cycle, embraced in one. 3rd December Today think about learning something new, seeking out knowledge. Is there something you have always wanted to study or train in? Ask that the Divine show you the way to unknown mysteries, to send you the right teacher, study group or books. Candle spell for knowledge: Using a yellow or blue candle (or a colour of your choosing) carve your name into the wax.
Dress the candle with oil and/or herbs if you would like to (honeysuckle, rosemary and lilac work well). Ground and centre yourself, take a couple of deep breathes in and out... Light the candle (make sure it is in a safe holder). Focus on the flame and then think about all the knowledge and wisdom you would like to have and also think about the knowledge and wisdom that you already have.
Trace the rune symbol Ansuz on your forehead (third eye) - this is for wisdom.
Trace the rune symbol Kenaz on your forehead (third eye) - this is for knowledge.
Ask the Goddess/God/Angels/Divine to aid you in your study and learning and bring you the wisdom that you seek. Sit for a few moments and visualise what you want to achieve. When you are ready give thanks, but leave the candle to burn out (safely). The tarot deck used is Shadowscapes by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law & Barbara Moore www.shadowscapes.com
