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.

I don't know of any books exclusively on the subject. What are you interested in exactly? A specific culture or style of casting for further knowledge or for practical application? Blood magick is a practice so perhaps look at local occult shops, book stores, or just Google search books on the topic. Blood adds power but further personalized the spell. You don't need a lot, just a few drops, and you can add blood to any spell really [though I would avoid adding it to things meant to be consumed for health reasons]
Animal sacrifices are an ancient practice many cultures did to please their gods. Today it isn't a widely observed practice and most pagans try to stay as far away from the stereotype as possible. However, there are a handful of practiced which use either animal parts or animal sacrifices, but it is rare and I know of symbolic substitutes. [Like a stuffed animal, drawing/photo or meat from a butcher] perhaps look into voodoo since they have spells calling on animal parts [bones, cow tongue, chicken feet] but please don't use magick as an excuse to kill animals. Even animal sacrifices in ancient times were treated with dignity and were used because they were the best animal in the herd to be present before the gods.

Im christian, but I have dabbled in voodoo and divination, I have had premonitions before I started dabbling into anything. I heard blood rituals are pretty potent.. With my premonitions I thought maybe I have good potential for doing rituals I wanted to see how far I could take it..I mean I had obe and I wasnt trying to do anything, pretty much anything Ive done that was magic besides tarot and other divination came effortlessly without even trying,I figured if I went as far as sacrificing animals, maybe I can do something consciously.
