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.
Ok so, I've been thinking, and basically I had an idea. If you think about it, most people don't (directly) believe in magick because science has outdated the stone-still thought process it (seems) that some pagans have or whatever. I think we should do an overhaul of all the worlds' thought process to make magick less... Weird.

I beg to differ. Thewicca we kniw of was founded mostly by gerald gardner in 1950s, Alaxender sanders 1920ish, and doreen valiente 1980s. They mand the foundamentals of this religion though the religion o wicca is based off of a mix of the druids and vikings and sometime alon the way the roman pagans.
A lot has changed sence the crusades, and en sence Valientes time. Cunninhamn has shown in his time that wicca can be a one person and without a cirucle, attuning strictly with the earth as well as the fact that one dosnt need a covent to be a wiccan.
Now you have authors o the 1990s to now comeing up who are reforming wicca as well, conway and ravenwolf to add a few who are bringing new ideas to the peactice whike still keeping tradition.
Wicca is not simply casting spells in a dark roon with candkes, cloaks and secracey. Is about conecting ones self with a higher being or dietie, atuneing with eathand nature whike finding out who we are and finding our way. Spells are not castin fireballs or even beliveing we can, its not throwing hexes or walki g around in black pointy hats.
Its essentialy a journy walk for yourself. Finding who you are. Infact I know some wiccans who dont cast spells besides prayer and meditation.
Wicca is ever changig and vast. People who are a different religion will always attack us with words of hate because they dont understand. Its not a whole religion against us, just uneducated and closed minded people. People will always bash religions.
Magick is life. A woman and a man can make a kiving being that will grow to be a full grown person. That ismagick and science has proven that this is possible. Life exsits, a soul exsists, yet sceince cant prove exactly when its exsistance starts or where it comes from.
Agreed, modern magical practice simply originated in ancient traditions. Many current beliefs were developed during the 19th century and current practices are not more than a hundred years old. Magic and science are also very interrelated, I've created and discovered through experimentation much more than I have with research. There are a great deal of scientists actually researching magic and spirituality at the Institute of Noetic Sciences.
