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.

Wands can be made from any kind of wood. But there are specific types of wood that works best for specific tasks.
Alot of the craft has been bombbarded with cerimonial magic that was devised by fly by night self proclaimed experts in the craft.
Publishing cheap novelty books on the new age in your kitchen magic. To the "Secret of the Ancients", that have been translated from some unknown forever lost transcript.
Now cerimonial magic does have its place in the magical realm, but it does not always apply to everything.
Basicaly if you are starting in the craft and new to it, I recommend using any type of wood as long as it is removed from a living tree. Dead trees do not work. However for casting destructive spells, wood from a dieing tree is ideal.
Then after you have worked your wood and fashend it into your ideal wand charge it with a specific enchantment. (Healing wand, elemental water, elemental fire, etc...) But only use this wand for that type of spell castings.

I've made them out of black english walnut,a branch of chinese pecan, Live oak (very powerful),mandarin orange branch, I place a shaped and polished crystal on the tip and sometimes at both ends. To date the most powerful is my Live oak with a chrysopraise crystal attached I can sense its' energy at a long distance, I've been 50 miles away and when I think of my wand my body tingles all over from its energy, the reason is since I bled it when I dedicated and consecrated it the bond was formed between it and myself.
