AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
It has come to my attention that there are quite a few members of the council that is new to magick. Is it not the role of council members to place useful spells in the spell book. If one knows little of magick how can they complete the role given to them. I am pleading that only people with an intermediate level of magick be addmited into the council, spells like 'Turn into a meermaid" is not the kind off nonscence should be addimted as a spell.
Sorry, Serpent, but I think it would be a bit hard to root out the inexperienced members from EVERY council unless(until) we also stop inexperienced PRIESTS from making covens. You may have noticed, if you've looked at the covens, that quite a few are made by inexperienced members and choose friends over knowledgeable/experienced candidates for council members. That, or they're just so inexperienced they don't realize their council members are inexperienced as well.
From the way you wrote that message I'm just making the guess that you think their is something like an over-all site council? I haven't seen nor heard of one unless you mean the Mods, but then that is something to take up with Pet, the Admin. Regular members don't have power over the Mods, the Mods have power over the regular members. And that is for the very reason you mentioned, inexperienced members should not be in positions of authority.
If I'm wrong about my guess then I already made my reply to your post above this little message and this little message can be ignored. :)
well put ragnorok. You also must keep in mind serpent that this is a site for beginners to magic and a lot of them have little to no experience with the exception of those who have been with the craft for years, ex: myself, tankgrrl, and white_rose, and several others, like my priest Brim (who is still learning but is doing a beautiful job helping me with the coven). Besides, don't be so quick to judge, just because a person is inexperienced (practice wise) doesn't mean they aren't knowledgable on subjects.
