Welcome To January



Did you know the word January comes from the Roman name for this month and was named for the after god Janus. Janus was said to have two faces and ruled over beginnings and endings. The past and the future. Even the full moon has a name. It is called Wolf Moon. The Wolf Moon is also called Quiet Moon, Cold Moon, Disting Moon, Snow Moon, Chaste Moon and Moon of Little Winter.
Folklore is also associate with this month. For example:
Whatever the weather is like for the first twelve days of January it will indicate what the weather will will be like for the next twelve solar months.

If your looking for a change in fortune and looking for good luck try this ritual.
On the night of the full moon gather the following candles.
A Astral candle to represent yourself;
A Orange candle to represent sudden change;
A Silver or light gray to represent neutralization of the bad luck;
A Black candle to represent the bad luck itself;
A Magenta to hurry the luck changing process.

Anoint the candles with a purification or blessing oil, such as lotus and set them in holders on a safe surface. Anoint the black candle from he end to the wick; by this Acton you are moving the bad luck away from yourself. Anoint the other candles from the wick to the end; this brings in what you desire.
The candles should be allowed to burn completely out, so be sure you can leave them safely.

Light the astral candle and say;
"This is me, everything that represents me".

Light the black candle and say;
"This is my bad luck. It now leaves me. I shed no more tears over the parting".

Light the gray candle, and say
"This will neutralize any remnants of bad luck. They will dissolve into nothingness".

Light the orange candle and say:
"This represents the changes for good that are coming into my life. I welcome them with open arms"

Light the magenta candle, and say:
This is the astral energy that I need to speed up the change".

Now sit for several minutes, repeating to yourself:
I welcome change, I welcome the incoming good.

Leave the candles to burn out completely. Dispose of the wax afterward.
You may find that certain friends will drop away after this ritual. This merely indicates that the friendship was not for your good. Be prepared to release whatever moves out of your life

We at "The Gods Are Bored" thank you for sharing this information about bored gods and magick! At my Druid circle, we each threw a piece of black felt into the woods to take away the negativity and breathe new life into the lengthening days.
