Why Are Black Cats Considered Unlucky?-Click Picture For Article

How did black cats become associated with bad luck, and with Halloween traditions?

Every year when people begin putting out their Halloween decorations, and we start dressing our homes for Samhain, inevitably the image of the black cat comes up. It’s usually portrayed with its back arched, claws out, and occasionally wearing a jaunty pointed hat. Local news channels warn us to keep black cats inside on Halloween just in case the local hooligans decide to get up to some nasty hijinks. 

But where did the fear of these beautiful animals come from? Anyone who lives with a cat knows how fortunate they are to have a cat in their life — so why are they considered unlucky?

Divine Cats:

The ancient Egyptians honored cats of every color. Cats were mighty and strong, and held sacred. Two of the most amazing goddesses in the Egyptian pantheon were Bast and Sekhmet, worshipped as long ago as 3000 b.c.e. Family cats were adorned with jewelry and fancy collars, and even had pierced ears. If a cat died, the entire family went into mourning, and sent the cat off to the next world with a great ceremony. For thousands of years, the cat held a position of divinity in Egypt.

The Witch’s Familiar:

Around the time of the Middle Ages, the cat became associated with witches and witchcraft. Around the late 1300′s, a group of witches in France were accused of worshipping the Devil in the form of a cat. It may be because of the cat’s nocturnal nature that it became connected to witches — after all, night time was the time they held their meetings, as far as the church was concerned.

Contemporary Cats:

Around the time of World War Two, when the American tradition of Halloween as trick-or-treat time really got underway, cats became a big part of the holiday decoration. This time around, however, they were considered a good luck charm — a black cat at your door would scare away any evil critters that might come a’calling.

Most people are far less superstitious today than they were in the Middle Ages, but the black cat remains part of our late October decor.

Black Cat Folklore and Legends:

Sixteenth-century Italians believed that if a black cat jumped on the bed of an ill person, the person would soon die.

In Colonial America, Scottish immigrants believed that a black cat entering a wake was bad luck, and could indicate the death of a family member.

The Norse goddess Freyja drove a chariot pulled by a pair of black cats.

A Roman solder killed a black cat in Egypt, and was killed by an angry mob of locals.

Appalachian folklore said that if you had a stye on the eyelid, rubbing the tail of a black cat on it would make the stye go away.

If you find a single white hair on your otherwise-black cat, it’s a good omen.

In England’s border countries and southern Scotland, a strange black cat on the front porch brings good fortune.

As an animal totem the black cat is the keeper of secrets, gatekeeper; when black cat crosses your path she is telling you to stay aware, as something very powerful is coming into your life: be ready to recognize it and receive it.

I have a black cat, Isis, and she is one of the most intelligent animals I have ever had the privilege of living with. Her intelligence, understanding, compassion, and kindness is beyond compare. So those of you that have a lovely black cat know what I’m talking about. You can read more about her by clicking here.

If you have a black cat please make sure you keep them protected on Halloween.

Accuracy of Palm Readings

Practice of Palmistry Chart

Practice of Palmistry Chart

Reading palms is highly regarded as a true way to see into our own futures. Some argue that the palms simply tell the story of where we are at the moment and what we have gone through or accomplished in our lives to this point. I disagree and the reason is because in 1984 I had a Palm Specialist read my palm and he told me that I would be a writer. I laughed at him and said, “I can’t write. I don’t know grammar and English enough to do anything and I have no idea what I would write about.” Fast forward to the year 2004 and I started taking writing classes and for the next two years I spent writing my book. Which you can check out here. As most of you know I have written many many articles. So a good Palm reader can see the future.

The various lines and paths in our palms are viewed as a popular way to gain insight into a person’s life, including your own. It is also believed that each hand tells a different story and that you should read your dominant hand. If you are left-handed, your left hand is dominant and if you are right-handed, your right hand is the dominant hand. Below is a basic key of the major lines in your palm.

Line Key

  • Your life line, in a nutshell the longer the line the longer your life.
  • Your heart line, based on the location where it starts and ends in the row of fingers, it gives clues regarding your love life.
  • Your head line, this line is said to determine information regarding your intellectuality.

There are various other lines in the hands that indicate and signify different things. The ones listed here are the primary lines that everyone typically asks about. Take a look at your palm and attempt to count the series of lines. It is nearly impossible. There are so many, and they seem so complex. Perhaps, they are there for a purpose!

If you have ever had your palm read tell us about it. If you would like more information on this ancient technique call me at (866)-563-3997.

partial solar eclipse

Prepare for a great release and awakening in power as this week’s solar eclipse and New Moon in Scorpio makes its powerful effect on the encounters of personal lives. The partial solar eclipse, occurring Oct. 23, 2014, is said to be the beginning of great relief to many signs and when the eclipse hits its peak, 48% sun visibility will be present.

On the afternoon of Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014, the Moon will pass in front of the Sun.

What we’ll see is a partial solar eclipse, where the Moon passes along a chord of the Sun’s face, never completely blocking it out. At maximum eclipse the Sun will look like a thick crescent, the dark disk of the Moon moving across it.

This is a very cool event, and it favors Canada and the United States; it’ll be visible in nearly the entirety of both countries. The exception is the extreme.

This being the final eclipse of the year, people will begin to have a greater understanding of the struggles they have recently experienced.  The eclipse will highlight transformative rebirths and have an effect on situations involving investments and the financial status occurring within relationships.

This rare eclipse signifies the lighting up of the soul and, as a soul lights, it becomes all of that which it really is, enabling it to cut through fears and doubts which may have previously held back the individual’s progress.

The new moon is about starting with an empty clean slate; it is the conception of an idea to become birthed into life with the coming full moon.

Use this time wisely.

  • This is a time of new beginnings!
  • Die to the old to begin again!
  • Use this energy to discover what has been holding you back.
  • Plant seeds of manifestation.
  • Harness the energy of all things of beauty.

New moon blessings,

Easy and Simple DIY Body Care Recipes

2-Step, 2-Ingredient Formulas for Natural, DIY Body Care

Conventional body care products like body washes, moisturizers and scented body sprays usually contain dozens of ingredients, many that function only to stabilize, dye, preserve and artificially fragrance the product. A lot of these ingredients care for the formula while it sits on the shelf and do little to care for your body when you ultimately (and repeatedly) apply it to your skin.

Your own freshly made, as you need it, two-ingredient formula of essential oils in a carrier liquid will perform the same basic duties as most of these products. Become your own two-ingredient, two-step natural body care formulator and eliminate all of the superfluous ingredients that you don’t need to pay for, apply to your skin or rinse into the environment.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

"

No winner in war. Just shadows of people lost too soon.

"

(A photo found unclaimed on Writer’s cafe. It was famous once.  Don’t need

words to express the sadness.)

You are gone and I’m here

War, violence and terror.

Who win in these wars?

Loud and powerful men watch from a distance. Announcer threats of war condemning young men and woman to fights and die.

I stood with family members and children by strong men graves. They won’t whisper their song no-more.  Children will learn to understand. You are gone and I’m here. I need you now and I love you dear.
