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.

Although I like the idea of this HEH is absolutely right. Spells that work for some may not work for others. And then you have covens like Spell Casters that automatically accepts members and puts them as council members. And many of these are people who join just so they can add spells no matter how real or how fake they are. And there are some from other coven who weasel their way to council just for the same purpose. It happens. It's not some thing we can too very much control. But all-in-all if having good working spells are what concerns you, then write your own spells and test to know what does and doesn't work. And from there find a way to post on site. If that's what you really want and are concerned about.

Seriously folks. This post only proves that very few people understand how spells work. Within the realm of magick, any spell can work, and any spell can fail.
Even tested spells will fail if the person casting them does not understand how to apply their will and energy to them.
ALSO!!! Even spells made up for fantasy can work if the person casting them DOES know how to apply will and energy.
Obviously no one will be transforming into a mermaid anytime soon... the idea of recording a spell on a video to "prove" that it works is absolute rubbish. Spells never work that way. Usually even when a spell is working, there is NO obvious physical reaction that can be recorded.
If you learn how spells work, the best way to make sure you have a "good" spell is to write it yourself. The spell is simply a tool to help you put your energy to use. A mechanic can use a toy wrench OR a real wrench...it's just that the real one works better. Spells are like magickal wrenches. You don't need them, they just make it easier to use the power you have. Technically, if you're strong enough you don't NEED a wrench for anything. The same is true about spells.
Most people are not that strong...so we make spells, and wrenches to help us out.
I hope my analogy is understood here. This concept is one of the biggest stumbling blocks in magick. Don't think of it as spells that "work" or "don't work". Look at any spell and ask yourself "Can I make it work?" If the answer is "no" then you don't know enough to cast it, even if the spell is genuine.

I do not believe spells should be cast just to even see if they work.
For one, spells are tools, and tools are not toys. Tools should be used for what they are meant for.
Secondly, magic normally works alonside the laws of nature, if you really need to test a spell to know if it could even possibly work you really shouldn't be working with spells yet to begin with.
Third, our system doesn't have any restraints already and you actually think that administration feels like testing each and every spell before/after it is added?
You're joking, you have to be.
