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.
"All Witches are not Wiccan and all Wiccans are not witches"
I went through about 7 pages to see if there was a similar topic and haven't found any. Now I just looked at the titles and if one seemed like it was going to be similar I clicked. So if there is one, sorry I missed it.
One thing I would like to stress, since I haven't seen it talked about here yet, and I wished someone had told me before.
Witchcraft and Wicca are NOT the same thing.
Wicca is a religion. Witchcraft is a practice, which can be practiced with any religion. Wicca focuses more on the divinity. More on the Lord and Lady. Wicca is a more light, love, religion. Wiccan's practice witchcraft when they do spells. To be Wiccan, you don't have to do spells.
Witches do not follow the Rede. And I wish more Wiccans would realize this. I personally do not believe in Karma, 3-fold or the Rede (which again why would I? I am a witch)
There are witches who preform curses/hexes. (I'm also tired of people saying "Well you aren't a witch if you preform a hex"....bullpoop)
Like I said, I just wish someone would of told me. When I became interested in Wicca at 13, I was a fluffy bunny. The reason why people get so confused on Wicca/Witchcraft is because authors nowadays use them interchangeably and they are not.

I would certainly agree with your statement that not all Witches are Wiccan.
However, I would disagree with the second half of your statement. Wiccans are Witches. The religion of Wicca includes the practice of Witchcraft as an essential part of its practices. Now many Wiccans don't deal in a lot of spellwork, that that does not mean that they don't perform magic on a regular basis. Every time one casts a circle or charges a tool one is doing magic, or witchcraft if you prefer. In fact when Gerald Gardner initially began what is known today as Wicca he referred to it as the cult of Witchcraft. Only later did it become known as Wicca.

It actually is talked about. It comes up often in chat. You might want to chech it out. But you are right about authors and even media make that mistake. I spread that word myself that Wiccan and witch are not interchangeable. Glad you did get the right information. Continue with your studies. Blessed Be...

You know, Lark, I get argued with that not all Wiccans are witches. But the religion is has magick as part of the Wicca. I'm not understanding why people would say that. Not all witches are Wiccan, bit all Wiccan are witches. So I'm not getting some people's take on it. I was told once that its because they believe in the dualistic. I disagree, but keep my mouth shut when I see an argument is happening (in public chat).
I agree with you, Lark, about it. Anyway, correct info is out there, Ryuu66. Blessings...
