Today, I am answering the question that has appeared more and more in my emails. What spell book do I endorse? Good Witch Bad Witch by Gillian Kemp is my most favourite. The spells are simple and affective.
The two types of cards represent the balance of opposites within nature - day and night, summer and winter, good times and bad times. This is something witches respect as they honour the seasons of the year and all aspects of life. We might prefer to only have happy days but we can't avoid every misfortune and there are valuable lessons to be learnt from the sad times of grief and hardship.http://badwitch.co.uk/2008/01/good-witch-bad-witch-by-gillian-kemp.html http://badwitch.co.uk

Hear my call, this I pray! My baby Big Paws was snatched from my yard on May 1, 2013 between midnight and 1 o'clock by M. Robertson and M. Pecone and they tossed him out like garbage to hurt me.
That night, I brought him inside, and then he really wanted to go back out. Against my better judgement I let him outside and went to bed because I had to be up for 5:30 am for May Day ritual and to go to work. My dad opened the front door to let him in and he wasn't there. My father who is not a well man went out looking for him at one in the morning and again at 2 am.
I don't care what happens to the thieves. Life will give them what they deserve. Instant gratification is always short lived.
Big Paws means everything to me. He is my child. It is hard for me to think of him out there on his own confused by what has happened to him. Big Paws is a house cat. I live in the country high on a hill and today it snowed, hailed and rained. What I need from you is to please add your energy to help him find his way home. My true friends and family have searched back-roads, ditches and farmer fields calling his name.
Please fellow witches add him to your prayers to allow him to find his way safely home.
HEAR MY CALL, THIS I PRAY...
Update - Baby Big Paws was tossed out by the male passenger from her car window on Highway 28 just past the over pass driving south at 60 miles an hour and Baby Big Paws died. My cat was spotted by a family friend dead in the ditch on May 3, 2013 :(
Thank you for your support.
Let me, oh Spirit Guide, this day
Make someone happy
By what I do
Or what I say
And when my thoughts
To irritation roam
Spirit Guide let me remember
Charity starts at home.
Let your head soar
Let your dreams have air
Let them spread far into the future
Let them stir your heart
Let them in riches abound
- But keep your feet on the ground.
Let praises sing in your ears
Let the reviews be as balm your ego
Let the success give you a feeling of power
Let adulation like music sound
- Only keep your feet on the ground.
Remembering always, what goes up must by Newton's 'Law of Gravity' come down. Perhaps the only way to reach the stars is to come down to earth!

Beltane Chant (by Rudyard Kipling):
O do not tell the priests of our arts,
for they would call it sin!
We will be in the woods all night
A-conjuring conjuring summer in.
And we bring you good news by word of mouth.
For women, cattle, and corn:
The sun is coming up from the south,
By oak and ash, and thorn!
(Continue chanting 'by oak and ash and thorn')
The first day of May marks a festival of great importance for all those who follow the Pagan way. We call this day 'Beltane' which means 'Fire of God,' the Sun, renews his gift of Need-Fire to the Earth Mother. The spark of life has once again been delivered.
The Celtic May festival, to celebrate the arrival of summer; from Old Gaelic words meaning blaze-kindling. In Druidic times, two fires were lit, and the tribes cattle driven between them, in a purificatory rite. In later times, young men would leap over fires in tests or displays of energy and virility.
On April 30th in some areas, fires burn from dusk till dawn. Beltane or May Day at dawn wash your face with dew for a good complextion and good luck throughout the year.
