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 can be burned as an incense, I have heard it promoting everything from cleansing properties to protection as well as calming...imagine that. I know of someone who uses it before certain rituals for an increased concentration, and I know them to be very reputable....
I don't know anything about any magical properties that smoking weed might have other than to get you feeling like an idiot.
Before any one here gets ofended I don't mean to ofend any weed lovers! That's just my point of view.
Some people might say that weed can help you relax & help you get into a trance. I personally would not use a "gate way drug" as a way to get into a trance, even if weed is used for medicinal purposed, in that case I'm all up for people who use it because it's medically needed.
I rather use the good old meditation technique w/ out the use of a drug.
isis, your opinion is yours, I may not agree with it, but i would defend to the death your right to speak it (didn't someone once say that..hmm..googled)
heres my pov.
in my experience it depends on what ritual you are doing if it's use would help you any. I find simple rituals that require more concentration than actual wordplay or involvement are the best because if you can sit in one place and meditate for a while while under the maximum effect of cannabis it is an excellent aid. your amount of concentration alone could help you achieve your goal. so I guess I think its better for mediation than actual magick
Well, cannabis, like many other medicinal plants, is a medicinal plant. I've always had an interest in current herbal remedies and what herbs ancient cultures/shamans around the world use for ailments. I see nothing wrong with using marijuana for medical reasons, for fun, or for divination. I don't see anything wrong with using any naturally growing plant for medicine, fun, or spiritual reasons. The hard part in society is that a lot of people can't responsibly handle drugs, illegal or prescription. A lot of people can't responsibly handle themselves and discern what is safe or what is unsafe for them to be doing. I used to smoke a lot of weed now and then just for fun, but find that it actually makes my back pain worse. I think because my pain management is all mind over matter, so when my mind is compromised, I'm less able to stand or walk. But I recently gave it up, because overall, I've always preferred to have a clear head. And even though I consider myself drug free these days, I still never had a chance to try peyote, and I'm sure I would if I had the chance, because I see nothing wrong with experimenting with consciousness or divination. That's pretty much what prompted my interest in herbalism/shamanism years ago. But, I've never really found anything spiritual through the use of any substances either. Oh well. Even if I'm not using anything anymore, I still believe it should be our right to medicate, relax or enlighten.
