New Year’s Report : 2021

Venus, ruling planet of 2021. Called “The Little Treasure” in Astrology due to it’s benefits and blessings

We have a lot to cover this year. First let’s get the Tai Sui of the Year out of the way. As well as other things :


https://miamimagus.wordpress.com/2020/12/15/astrological-forecast-for-december-2020-the-last-forecast-of-the-year

Although this was the last forecast of 2020, this covers a whole bunch of things. The other thing that catches my attention is that it comes on a Friday. Friday is usually for ending things. Not for starting new projects. This means this next year will more than likely be about finishing projects or taking care of problems that need to be taken care of. 


Not about embarking on new projects. This is about fixing our lives and ending the nastiness of these last few years. If you already did that and think you can manage embarking on new projects, awesome. More power to you. The new year has come on the back of the Long Night’s Moon.


Also called the Full Cold Moon or simply the Cold Moon. The Moon of Midwinter which reaps and destroys negativity. This Moon influences our new year. So again, this year is for ending all of the bad from the last few years. Work with the moon on this.


It does so in the sign of Cancer. This sign belongs to the negative polarity. And it’s a water sign. So it magnifies cleansing. And it’s also a psychic-empathic sign. 


A total cleansing of the soul. So this year is the time for reaping. Killing the dark things that no longer serve you. And planting and preparing for the things you want. For planting in order to harvest later, but before you can do that, you need to kill all the weeds. 


Capricorn Horoscope for 2021

When I was praying to the Gods of the New Year, I had this heaviness hit me from the crown of my head. This was strange because I cleansed. I protected myself well. Followed all the rituals and then some. This new year comes with heavier baggage than the last one I think. 

~ The Letter of the Year from Cuba ~

From Ile Afroboricua on Facebook https://m.facebook.com/afroboricua


The Babalawos from Cuba have a different and more positive take. And in their divination we are going to be ruled by the Orishas (Yoruba Gods) Olokun and Oshun. Olokun is a very mysterious Deity. It’s unknown whether Olokun is male or female. All Gods and especially the Orishas are transexual entities.

The Letter of the year in Spanish. This is the document I did the translation from

They don’t really have a gender because Gods entail all things. Deities do normally have a set gender they like to use as their default. A preferred form they like to use amongst many. But Olokun is unknown. The story goes that this Orisha had taken human form once. 


And was chased away by dogs to the bottom of a river. So Olokun never leaves the water and is hidden so deep within the caves and water ways that he/she is never seen. The main belief is that Olokun represents the mysteries of water. And Oshun is the Goddess of love, prosperity, nature, magic, and many other things. She also rules rivers. 


Ika Fun is the sacred text or Odu (oddun) of the year. The main message is,


“A blessing of firm and safe health on Earth that Orula will provide”

Also, this year’s flag is blue with yellow trims. The colors of Olokun and Oshun.

~ Orixa Regente (Ruling Orixa) of 2021 ~

From : https://www.deviantart.com/oradiancporciuncula/art/Oxala-Obaluaie-e-Oxum-603860687

Orixa is the portugese spelling for Orisha. The Candomble religion is similar to Santeria. Only the slaves that went to Brazil preserved other Orishas that the slaves in Cuba didn’t. Their priests also perform a divination to see who rules the year. And in theirs it’s Oxum and Oxalá (Oshun and Obatala). 


In both divinations we see Oshun take a prominent role. And even though Obatala isn’t the reigning Orisha in the Letter of the year, he’s still clearly important. Usually the divinations go in polar opposite points. Different Yoruba Deities and different messages. Which makes sense because each person divines for their own land.

And also because Candomble and Santeria have different traditions mixed with Yoruba religion. But this year it’s interesting to see just how close the divinations were. 


“The ruling Orixás of 2021 are Oxum and Oxalá and, with them, the next year will benefit from protection, unity, learning and patience . Through this co-regency, you will feel the divine blessings of the two entities in different aspects of your life,”

As the first day of the year falls on a Friday, 2021 will be ruled by Oxalá, known as the ‘father of the orixás’. However, he will not be alone in this command, as the ruling planet will be Venus, the planet that represents Oxum, called “mother of the orixás”. In addition, Oxum is represented by Odu (the numerological sum of 2021) with the number 5,”

Therefore, the ruling Orixás of 2021 symbolize the role of mother and father of all human beings. In other words, the energy of family unity, the valorization of the sacred feminine , tranquility and harmony is expected. With Oxalá in charge, you will be blessed by his light and protection. With that, you will feel safe enough to develop personally, professionally and spiritually, as the Orixá brings wisdom and patience as virtues. On the other hand, Oxum indicates that the year will be driven by forces of prosperity, independence and balance. 


In this way, the orixá will act on the self-esteem and confidence of people, especially women. Both Oxalá and Oxum as the 2021 regent Orixás carry the importance of maintaining a good family relationship as a principle. So don’t be surprised if you see that your friends are getting pregnant and raising their own families,”

“In Umbanda and Candomblé, Oxalá is the orixá that aligns the forces that connect people and nature, thus establishing harmony between all living beings. In this way, it brings, in addition to peace and quiet, the peace and calm required to end a cycle. This is because the ruling orixá of 2021 represents the end itself, that is, Oxalá defines the moment of the end of situations, periods and even lives. With the awareness that nothing is eternal, you can understand this orisha as the guardian of the balance of the Universe. Known as the ‘father of the orixás’.

He has two ‘identities’. As a young man, he receives the name of Oxaguiã and adopts paradoxical characteristics, because, while he is calm, he is also quarrelsome; already older, his name is Oxalufã and assumes a calm, patient and fair personality,

What’s interesting here is that this part aligns with what I said in the beginning of the report. My divination with the spirits and Gods told me this year was to finish business. To reap or destroy the things we don’t need anymore. To end cycles. It seems that is what Oxala/Obatala will be doing this year. 


“Oxum is the female orixá that governs feelings such as love and affection. Furthermore, it is she who maintains the natural order of the Universe, including fertility. For this reason, Oxum is symbolized as the ‘mother of the orixás’ and intercedes for all human beings as if they were their children. In Umbanda and Candomblé, the orixá is the daughter of Oxalá and her image is represented by her feminine strength and beauty. In this way, Oxum can be found in the calm of the fresh waters of rivers and waterfalls by those who seek to heal their wounds, especially those of love.

Therefore, the 2021 ruling orixá is frequently sought to resolve love issues. But Oxum is also known for bringing peace, stability and balance to distressed lives,”

“Oxalá and Oxum bring the importance of valuing both your spiritual and family side. Under the command of these two orixás, 2021 will be considered a period of closing cycles for the beginning of another, as it will be a year of personal and material growth, hard work and rewards,”

Oxalá and Oxum forecast as ruling orixás of 2021:

Spiritual peace ; Balance; Family union; Stable relationships ; Professional effort; Elimination of the superfluous; And open paths.

 “In addition, with the strengths of Oxum and Oxalá, you can fulfill your dream of becoming a mother, as 2021 promises to be a very fertile year. Knowing the right moon to get pregnant, you guarantee the growth of your family, next year,”

“The last message about the influences of the ruling orixás of 2021 is that Oxalá and Oxum arrive to guide you to cut the bad by the roots. So, learn to listen to them, however difficult it may be, because, by eliminating bad energies, your life will take the right direction,”

And again, they seem to have caught onto the same energy that my spirits and I felt in the divination. Amazing. They also took a very positive stance for this year just as the Babalawos did. 


Ruling Planet of the YearAstrologers from Brazil believe the ruling planet of the year is Venus. A planet love Goddesses such as Oshun rule. They believe this means that contrary to Chinese predictions, we will have peace and mutual respect. With a cool head for negotiations. Honestly, no one force rules it all. 

Maybe we will have some positivity after all. But beware, I doubt we’ll have peace on Earth either. The Sun will enter Aries on March 21st of this year. Supposedly we’ll all be a lot more social and feel lightness. I’ll believe it when I see it though. 


Venus favors rewards and many blessings. And again, it favors peaceful negotiations.

Hellenic New Year from last July


Strangely enough, when my Hellenic Temple and I celebrated the Athenian New Year just a few months ago, the Priests came to a similar conclusion. For my temple, the year belongs to Herakles and Aphrodite.

Herakles brings stability and strength just like Obatala and General Yang Xin. And Aphrodite is similar to Oshun in bringing love and unity. So it seems we are all tuning into the same frequency. 


And finally, I finish this with a list of various New Year’s traditions

Interesting mesh of magical influences this Month

Sharing the IFA calender for this Month. And I have noticed some interesting things while reviewing it. Now, my observations have nothing to do with IFA. At least not all the way. These are things that I noticed based on my readings, divination (that I do for myself) every time that I update my calender, and Cuban and Greek folk ways.

 

I am not intending to misconstrue various traditions. Nor am I intending to offend anyone. This is my personal, mixed, theology and how I view things. Today I looked at the calender on my wall and remembered that I haven’t updated anything. As soon as I get astrological reports or the Monthly IFA calender from this site, I update my wall calender.

Off the bat, I realized that today is Thursday the 8th. Thursdays and the number 8 are sacred to Poseidon. So I did my offerings for him at a tree I designated for male Gods of Prosperity and I gave the offering in his name. Once I realized how important today was, and remembered that Thursday is a good ritually charged day, I decided to sit down and update my calender. In doing so, I discovered some powerful days with numerology.

 

Tomorrow for example is ruled by Sango and Oya and it is the 9th day (sacred to Oya). Oya and Sango are both warriors. And days they rule carry both prosperity and aggressive energy. So depending on how you look at it, you can either have a really good day or a really bad day. Moving on, Tuesday is the 13th.

 

Which carries power in Cuban and Italian tradition as Friday 13th. And guess what? Sango and Oya again. So, I added 4 (number of Sango) with Oya’s number 9 and got 13. So it’s a double 13 day. A day of great Mysticism and power.

 

On the 16th, the Planet Venus goes direct which resembles great prosperity. Since Venus/Aphrodite is not just a Goddess of love but of abundance. But, the same day Venus goes direct, Mercury goes into Retrograde which means everything goes wrong. In the IFA calender, the 16th of this Month will be ruled by Ochossi, Orisha Oko, and Ogun. While in my personal experiences with them, they bring forth prosperity, they are also warriors.

 

Well, Ochossi and Ogun are. Orisha Oko is seen as a Farmer who brings forth prosperity. Still the symbolism is clear : on one side, renewed abundance, on the other, conflict. Saturday 17th is ruled by Sango and Oya again. Saturday is normally a day for the dead and Oya is a Guide for the dead. The 21st (21 is often a number of destruction or dominance like 9) is again ruled by Sango and Oya. I did the numerology calculations of 13 (Sango and Oya) and the number 21, broke down the final number to a single digit : 7.

 

The number of Mysticism. To me this symbolizes that out of percieved destruction comes creation. The next day which is the 22nd is the day before the full moon when I do my first lunar rituals. The next day is the 23rd. The 22nd is ruled by Obatala the King of Heaven, Egungun (the collective dead), Iyaami (Divine Priestesses), and Sanpanna the Lame Footed God of Healing and Disease.

 

The next day is ruled by IFA order, Esu (Crossroads God), Osun (Goddess of love and Prosperity and this is on a Friday like Aphrodite), Aje (the Grace of the Gods, their primal energy), Yemaya (Ocean Goddess), and Olokun the Orisha or Deity also of water who serves Yemaya (or is an aspect of her depending on your theology). Two very powerful days ruled by the Moon. Lunar magic in my experience works well both with the dead (Egungun) and with Water. A combination of several powers and wisdom. When I added the number 22 and 23 and reduced it to a single digit I received the number 9.

 

A number of destruction or creation based on your personal thoughts. Sacred to Aphrodite and to Oya. And with Egungun on the day before and Osun on Friday which is the day of Aphrodite, there is a lot of power to be had here. These are the days which caught my attention. I believe that this means a lot of reaping and rebirth are set to happen this month.

 

So watch out and prepare. November is looking to be a magnificent month indeed.

Astrology, Spiritual Warfare, and the Hunter’s Moon for this week

This is a picture of South Beach while the Moon is starting to become full. So, the Hunter’s Moon is just one of the many names for it. Thanks to Billie, who’s article is here I learned a few other names. I didnt know the Bloodmoon was the same moon. So why was I at South Beach? I had a Paranormal case that couldn’t wait till the full moon on Wednesday.

Last night, a friend of mine and I went to the Beach. He drove me and aided me through the ritual (sorry for that gigantic mellon you had to carry brother). The mellon was for Yemaya, the Orisha of the Ocean. It was also for Orishas Inle, Oshun, Olokun, and Nana Buruku. As well as Theoi Amphitrite and her husband Poseidon.

The Celtic Goddesses Elen of the Roads, Brighid, and Rhiannon. It was a massive Eclectic working under the light of the nearly formed moon. To make the long story short, the Mother of the family has an asshole ex boyfriend who refuses to leave her be. So he keeps hiring new witches to cast on them. This family is constantly beset with bad luck and bad spirits.

Their dryer almost exploded in their apartment. Glasses and dishes seem to break over nothing. One actually disintegrated with only a large piece still in her hand. And members of the family having broken objects and even birds literally crapping on them no matter where they went. I admit that these things were new for me.

I have never met spirits powerful enough to break almost anything or to make bad luck find a family anywhere. I have heard of it from the Elders in Santeria and Vodoun. Never experienced it. I was crapped on four times in one day when talking to them. The glass of my phone shattered while it was still in my pocket.

 

I hadn’t even heard or felt it. I stabbed my thumb and bled on one of the pieces. The message was clear : You are not welcome here. Leave or else. Then they found a dried up rose on their door step. After divining and talking with a few people I know, I discovered it was a false funeral.

A funeral ritual for a living person to call the dead to take a living person with them. It opened a gigantic gate which I learned later was effecting the entire apartment complex. So I called on one of my Native American spirits, a strange entity that appears as a ball of light, to aid me. He told me to get my copy of “Six Says” by Aidan Watcher and do a little Bibliomancy. What I discovered was that I had to use this full moon to seal the gateway.

The spirit planted visions in my head of how I was to do it while I read the passage in Watcher’s book about lunar energy and a practitioner. I was told to gather dirt from the four corners of the complex and take it along with a few Idols to the beach. There I had to toss the dirt into the waters with the idols. Thus establishing the Connection of the land to the sea. I took a water bottle to use as a Situla (Pagan holy water vessel) and took ocean water blessed by the Moon’s light.

I tossed the mellon into the waters and filled the bottle. Then somewhere between all of my invocations and spells, an idea entered my head. I have needed to get a stone from the Ocean for my Elegua idol. Every Santero has an Elegua to protect them. My Godfather said I needed a sea stone for my Elegua.

But I have had a hard time finding one. So I began to beg the Deities for the most beautiful stone to give, and I found maybe 5 or 7 of them. When I returned to the complex, I baptized each member of the family in the water, then I poured the waters over each of the four corners. I saw in my head like a flash, pillars of light and sea creatures appear on each corner.  But I felt one of the pillars was weaker.

The one close to the river behind their complex. I realized then : the new witch was using the water to open a door way. Native Americans and other Nations believed since time immemorial that water was a gateway. Even Pen, who was one of my mentors in the beginning told me that water was a conduit for spiritual energy. The sneaky bastard opened a doorway this big on purpose.

What I had assumed was them being fools and accidentally opening a vortex that would engulf the complex by mistake, was on purpose. They didn’t care that a whole mess of people were being effected. My spirits told me to file that away for later and focus on the last corner. Finding the last corner was hard because the fence of the complex is crooked. But I let my spirits aid me in finding the proper spot.

Once I finished it, the beams all grew stronger, even the weakest one. They converged like a geometry equation and met at the center. Walls of energy, so thick I half expected cars to crash. Sea Nymphs appeared and began to chant and speak in a language I did not recognize. And I saw the portal for the first time.

It was Invisible for me until that moment. A huge worm hole or a black hole with blue green light. But instead of pulling things within it, it seemed to be expelling creatures from it. Ugly supernatural entities. It looked like something out of Lovecraft.

At that moment what appeared to me as a tidal wave of energy, swept over the whole complex. It was only after I felt it, and heard in my mind the entities screaming, that I knew it was holy water. Blessed by the Gods themselves. I saw their Astral forms react as if scolding water had blistered them. They all fell back in mass into the gate.

When the last one fled, what appeared to be spiritual bolts of lightning itched in the ground itself formed chains blocking the gate. I was told when the full moon reached it’s Apex the gate would close. No sooner than that. No new creatures  have appeared since last night. The activity in the home has stopped.

Now they’re just having nightmares. I divined again today and my spirit told me that it was the banished entities. Since they can’t appear anymore, the only thing left they could do is disturb dreams. When the portal closes fully, they won’t even be able to do that. They have made threats to the family in dreams if they don’t re-open the gate.

I have told the family to use their Christian prayers and church music. That should be strong enough now to block the dark spirits. I’ve also called upon armies of Poseidon to invade the realms they were sent back to and attack if they persist in causing harm to the family. I believe this will be enough to stop further Activity. Unless called, I’ll be taking a rest until Friday night.

I’ll be planning my attack on the new witch or wizard being paid by the boyfriend. I’m trying to find a way to permanently get rid of them. I’ve avoided doing a counter death spell if only because the ex has children. I’m doing something interesting with Reiki that I hope will do the trick. Anyways that said, your links for this week.

How to make Magic Candles with the Full Moon

Hand Poured Candles for the Full Moon

On the Hunter’s Moon this Wednesday

https://cherokeebilliespiritualadvisor.com/blogs/all/full-moon-october-24-2018-in-taurus

I forgot to add that the Hunters Moon brings out nasty things within our psyches. So you might be prone to paranoia or sudden bursts of anger. Combine that with Venus Retrograde and the Reaping will be an extra pain if you haven’t learned to work with it. Have a blessed week everyone. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to do consultations again after this family.

October Forecast, and Venus Retrograde

The picture here is of the main Orishas or Gods of the Yoruba people of Nigeria. This was the religion that Santeria comes from. Here they are depicted ruling each of their territories.
I thought it fitting to use this image since they are the ones who feature the most in this post. Praised be to their Spiritual Energies!
Well, we have a lot to discuss everyone. For one, today Friday Oct 5, 2018, Venus-Aphrodite goes into retrograde. I’m specifically going to set aside offerings for her as Aphrodite of Delphi. This isn’t an actual title, but her cult at Delphi was connected to the dead. This because her lover Adonis had died.

So I will be giving offerings to Lord Adonis as well. I will pray at my Bothros (altar of the dead) for three nights at midnight with an offering. During these three nights I will ask her to shed mercy on me and mind during this turbulent time for love. To help us understand what isn’t working in our lives. And to fix our issues.

I will also be taking this time to work with the dead. I’m going to use this ritual to ask her and Adonis to cross as many souls over as possible. I’ve mentioned in the “Great Reaping” article how one works with a Bothros to do retrograde work. The ritual is pretty identical to whatever God you’re working with who enters retrograde. You can find that post here :

Also, Retrogrades and their meanings. Learn to know what to watch out for.

http://hamderser.dk/blog/retrogrades-meaning-astrology.html

Venus Retrograde will last strangely, until another Friday, November 16th. And on the same day that Venus leaves Retrograde, Mercury enters retrograde 😮😲😨😱🙀!!!!!!

Someone up there must be having a lot of fun right now. The IFA Sect of the Yoruba Religion says that we need to beware of death this season. The energy of death is everywhere. They also warn us that we must beware of people misleading us from our faith. That only with faith in the higher powers will we be safe.

The prescribed offering is two fish given as a sacrifice in honor of IFA. I fed the animals outside two fish in their honor to be safe. I have noticed that there are malignant entities trying to make us doubt our faith. With the veil starting to open up, bad spirits are already trying to manipulate us. But don’t worry.

Remember that for every bad spirit, there is a good spirit helping us. The veil allows them access to us too. You can read the Divination done by the IFA Temple for yourself here :

https://oyekuofun.org/2018/10/02/itadogun-reading-10-2-2018/

Despite this, not everything is bad or bleak. There’s plenty of good. The veil seems to be unleashing positive forces to help us. According to Astrologer Jamie Kahl at Pandora Astrology, there is for this Month :

The Spirit of Tolerance

Open Mindedness and Generosity

Reaping of the old

And introspection

And before Mercury goes retrograde next Month, it’s propelling us to be better people right now. It’s actually moving faster in order for us to do projects and important things right now. So take advantage of Mercury right now before it enters retrograde. Do what you can now in a timely fashion. However, be mindful of :

Your money. You need to save what you can. Be extra cheap this month.

Be balanced in all things. This includes not just money but what you eat. Nothing in excess is what you need to focus on.

And finally, be mature. Admit your own faults without grinding yourself to the dust. And above all, no lying to yourself or to others. Astrologically, it’s when we hit the 23rd of this Month when we truly enter the spiritual darkness. Meditation with the Dub Sidhe (Dark Faeries) and the dark side of nature is good.

We live in a society that demonizes even the color black as evil. Dark Faeries are the spirits of winter. And like the other Faeries, the protectors of nature. Working with them can help you :

Ground and Center

Focus on your own internal struggles and help you in the physical world

Protection from evil spirits and curses

And being one with the Gods and Spirits of Winter time.

The Wild Hunt is only now beginning. Actually that’s not true. It came early this year. Remember Ghost Month came before Mabon. So as far back as two months ago we were dealing with negative entities.

Dealing with opened doors and dealing with the conflict of light and dark, summer and winter. So we’ve actually started the yearly reaping and wild hunt earlier than normal. Now, the Peak of Mercury’s light power will be the 30th of October (Tuesday). And the next day on the 31st, Venus starts to come out of the dark, and into the Light. These two days are in preparation both for Mercury to enter the dark and Venus to enter the light.

I’ve also noticed that on the IFA and Orisa Calendar which you can access here :

https://oyekuofun.org/2018/10/03/ifa-and-orisa-calendar-october-2018-osu-owara/

Almost every other day is ruled by :

Obatala/Egungun/Iyaami/Sanpanna

What does that mean?

1) Obatala, the King of Heaven, sky king, White Robed King.

He’s the King of the Yoruba Gods (Orishas). A purely Heavenly King. This means Heaven favors this day.

2) Egungun

The word Egun or Eggun is used for Ghosts. So Egungun means the collective dead. All the Ghosts in the land of the dead. Basically this means this day is also ruled by the Ancestors and giving them offerings and asking their advice is a good idea.

3) The Iyaami Priestesses

These were Witch Goddesses brought to Earth to aid humanity. They temporarily became evil and did evil things. Three of the Four sisters repented and returned to the service of the Gods. The fourth sister died unrepentant. Even now that the mystical witches are good, they represent aggressive forces.

They can be destructive. But destruction is also a part of creation. This means the Iyaami Priestesses are bringing with them change.

Finally,

4) Sanpanna

Also called Shaponna. In Santeria we call him Babalu Aye. The God of Disease and Healing of Disease. He’s mostly associated with smallpox, leprosy, and lame feet.

The combination of these influences is the touch of heaven, the wisdom of the ancestors and the Iyaami Priestesses, and Healing. Which by the way, Obatala is also a Healer Deity. So all of this is for transformation of the greatest kind. The other day paired with this day is ruled by :

Ifa/Esu/Osun/Aje/Yemoja/Olokun

1) The Order of IFA

The wise men and women of Orula the God of Divination and Magic.

2) Esu

Also known as Elegua. The Orisha of the Crossroads and Magic.

3) Osun

Also called Oshun the Orisha of Love, Prosperity, Nature, Magic, and Life.

4) Aje

Also known as Ashe, Ache, or Ase. The energy of creation and manifestation. The grace of the Gods.

5) Yemoja

Also called Yemaya, the Orisha of the Ocean. Queen of the Seas. Great Mother.

6) Olokun

The secret Orisha. No one really knows if it is a He or a She. This God serves Yemaya in the bottom of the Ocean. A healer and imparter of wisdom. These are two powerful days for wisdom and magic.

That they appear to be ruling every two days this month, means that we have a lot of wisdom and manifestation. The other two days are being ruled by :

Sango and Oya

Sango was one of the great Yoruba Emperors. He was a God before he lived his human life on Earth. And he became a God again in death. He is the Orisha of Seers, Magic, Warriors, Fire, Lightning, and Masculinity. His Wife Oya is the Orisha of Thunderstorms, Winds, Change, the Market Place and Economies, and she is a Guide to the dead.

She takes them straight to the Front Gates of the burial grounds. She is also a warrior and when she dances in the clouds, thunderstorms manifest. Those are days that are very intense and full of conflict. But they can yield rewards  if one is vigilant. The other days are ruled by :

1) Ogun

The Orisha of Blacksmiths, Nature, and Magic. He is a warrior who fights with a huge sword.

2) Osoosi

Also called Ochossi, is the Orisha of Hunters and Shamanism.

3) Orisa Oko

Is the Orisha of Agriculture and Abundance.

A day for nature, self reflection, and abundance. The pattern of this whole month seems to be a positive one. The IFA Priests divine who rules what day each month. So all this came from them observing the spiritual weather. So we yet have much to enjoy still.
