7 Health Benefts and 7 Magickal Properties of the Sun

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.” ― Nathaniel Hawthorne Just for today, let us focus only on the healing power of the sun. You are already aware of the health risks and the need for a high SPF sun screen… but the truth is, without the sun there would be no life, no joy and no warmth. The healing power of the sun has been known for millenia. There isn’t a single culture on the planet that has not worshipped the sun as either a God or Goddess at some point… Shamans of old knew of the power of the sun to heal the mind from depression. So let us celebrate and harness the power of the sun today! According to epidemiologist Robyn Lucas at Australian National University, analysis of lifespan versus disease shows that far more lives worldwide could be lost to diseases caused by lack of sunlight than to those caused by too much, and it is inappropriate to recommend total avoidance of sunlight. (quote from Wikipedia) Here are seven positive effects exposure to sunlight has on the health: * Improves psoriasis * Contributes to a robust circadian rhythm (better sleep) * Increased energy levels and libido * Safely increases levels of vitamin D (better bone health) * Boosts the immune system, cancer prevention * Reduces SADS (seasonal affective disorder) and  depression * Improves health in Alzheimer patients (less agitation) Esoterically, the Sun is a major player too. It corresponds to Archangel Michael, chief of Angels, and in the natal chart it represents the self/personality. In the Tarot, The Sun is a sign of success and victory. The numerological correspondence is 1 and the colour is gold. You can harness the occult power of the Sun by performing solar magick. This type of magick should ideally be done on a Sunday and during the hour of the Sun. There is an online planetary hour calculator you can use to find out when the hour of the Sun is on any given day. Here are seven types of spells that benefit from drawing on the power of the Sun: * Spells for greater vitality/improved health * Spells to increase your happiness levels * Confidence/courage spells * Freedom spells * Weather spells for sunny skies * Truth spells * Charisma spells Any spell you cast will always work best if you use your own words, unless you happen to find a spell that resonates perfectly. Use rhyme and chant the words of the spell three times or three times three. Strengthen the intent by lighting a candle in the corresponding colour. A spell candle for solar magick should be gold coloured and you can anoint it with cinnamon or frankincense to empower it further. You may also wish to mark the candle with a symbol for your wish. SAMPLE ANGEL MAGICK SPELL FOR FREEDOM (CORD CUTTING) I ask to...

The Seven Angels of The Week

Do you know what day of the week you were born? Did you know that each day is ruled over by one of 7 Archangels? The angel of the day you were born is one of your 5 Birth Angels (together with the Zodiac, Elemental and Quinary and Guardian Angels). Why do you even need to know this? The angel of the day of the week you were born can help facilitate alignment with your Life Purpose and to overcome any related challenges. But as usual with the angels, it’s up to you.. You will need to ask for help! They rarely interfere in the dealings of humans unless asked directly. It is handy to know whom to ask and what they are able to help with, wouldn’t you agree? So let’s find out a little bit more about these seven angels and how they can help you… Monday’s Angel is Archangel Gabriel, ruler of the Moon (Moon-day). Archangel Gabriel is the angel of magick and prophecy. If you are born on a Monday, you are meant to use your intuition to a higher degree than average… even if you are not directly involved in psychic work. This is also the angel to call on for help with understanding your dreams. Gabriel’s colours are white, silver and copper. You can use the crystals selenite, moonstone and carnelian to connect with Gabriel.  The main scent (essential oil or incense) is Jasmine. Tuesday’s Angel is Camael, ruler of Mars. He is a warrior angel and will help you do battle against injustice or apathy in any form. Camael will protect you against violence as well as help you stand up for yourself and those considered ‘the underdog.’ Camael’s colour is red. Use fire agate or garnet to connect with Camael and any time you need to ‘do battle.’ Scents to help you invoke Camael are black pepper and dragon’s blood. Wednesday’s Angel is Raphael, ruler of Mercury. Raphael is the patron of healers and travellers. He will keep you safe on all of life’s journeys and help you to communicate in a way that promotes healing and peace. The colours are green and yellow. Yellow calcite and green agate are crystals that can help you connect with this gentle angel. Some scents used to invoke archangel Raphael are chamomile, lemongrass and sandalwood. Thursday’s Angel is Sachiel, ruler of Jupiter. Archangel Sachiel helps you to time risk-taking so that you won’t miss any of life’s opportunities. He is also the angel of abundance and perfect to invoke for those who feel called to be business owners. He is known as the’Ambassador of Benevolence.’ The colour is indigo. Use sodalite or sugilite to connect with Sachiel in meditation. Scents associated with Sachiel are cedar, peppermint, hyssop and nutmeg. Friday’s Angel is Anael, ruler of Venus. As you might have guessed, this is the angel...
