In truth, magick consists of hard work and the mastery of many hard won skills, which only come after both practice and dedication. In our 'let's have it all now' society, this often proves to be a path too far and only those who have the tenacity and will to continue will actually reap their magickal rewards.
Many speak of white and black witches or white and black magick, but magic is a neutral force it is simply the intent of the practitioner which makes it one thing or the other.
'Mrs Darley's Pagan Paths to Magick' explores the underlying priciples of magick which help us to understand not only the ebb and flow of daily life, but also shine a little light on the secrets which unerpin the very essence of creating Divine Magick.
'Mrs Darley's Pagan Paths to Magick' is available for pre release order on Amazon and is due for publication on the 2 August.

The Celts referred to this moon as the wort moon because it was under this moon that the sweet infusion of malt (wort) was combined with yeast to make beer. This was due to the fact that the warm weather would produce just the right conditions for fermentation to take place.
It was also beneath this moon that the Celts would note the movement of the heavens and predictions would be made for the forthcoming year.

On the 28-29 the Delta Aquarids shower displays around 20 meteors per hour, travelling relatively slowly and will be best viewed in the east after midnight, although the full moon will affect viewing to a degree.
On 29-30 the Capricornid show will appear. These again are slow meteors, but are differentiated by their yellowy brightness and can often produce wonderful fireballs. Again view after midnight in the east.
Also on view this month are several planets, namely Mercury which can be seen now in the west after sunset. Venus is visible early in the morning (2.30 ish) and is at its greatest brightness on the 9th, low in the north east, whilst on the 15th the moon will pass in front of Jupiter in what is known as a 'grazing occulation' between 2.45 and 3.15am.
Here's to clear skies. Enjoy.
