H.P. Lovecraft: An Infernal Birthday

August 20th, 2018 by Voxx

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (Art Copyright by Tim Shay)Celebrating the 127th birthday of the incomparable horror fantasy writer, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, more commonly known as H.P. Lovecraft.

An admirer of Edgar Allan Poe, Lovecraft spent countless childhood hours reading his books, due to tragic situations regarding both his parents, who were both committed (at different times) to insane asylums in Providence, Rhode Island.

Other than reading and writing horror fiction, Lovecraft was fascinated with Astronomy; However, he was unable to finish his schooling due to a nervous breakdown he suffered before his high school graduation.

Lovecraft lived a solitary life, and rarely ventured outside his home. Despite this, he had a large number of literary friends and admirers, and wound up writing close to 100,000 letters to them throughout his relatively short life.

Of all his works, he is most known for his “Cthulhu Mythos”, a series of stories regarding an ancient chthonic water deity. So fascinating was the first story he wrote about the creature, that his admirers started adding their own versions and continuations through the years.

Some of his friends, admirers and students include some of the greatest writers of the last century, including Robert Bloch (writer of the classic, “Psycho”), and Robert E. Howard (“Conan the Barbarian”), and fantasy writer and poet, Clark Ashton Smith.

Although Lovecraft has inspired many modern films, I personally feel that none have really done his work justice, as his tales are so filled with subjective horror, they really can’t be put to film.

The following links will take you to free versions of several of my personal favorites:

“The Call of Cthulhu”, (the story that started it all.)

“The Shadow Out of Time”, (this one will seriously blow your mind.)

“The Dreams in the Witch House”, (incredibly horrifying!)

“At the Mountains of Madness”, (John Carpenter’s film, “The Thing”, was inspired by this story.

— and Lovecraft’s epic masterpiece …

“The Case of Charles Dexter Ward”

If you’ve never heard of Lovecraft, I encourage you to read his works, and discover his dark genius for yourself. Below is a link to more information about him, and his writings.

Oh, and when you’re reading his stories, it might be best to leave the lights on… not that it will help.

Midsummer’s Nite & Queen Mab

June 23rd, 2018 by Voxx

Great Tidings to you all upon this wondrous Midsummer’s Eve … which, by now is Midsummer’s Day.

It’s the night when the Queen of the Faeries — Mab, opens the door of Magick, between our world and her own.

I have always lived a life full of visions, music and magick since childhood. I prayed to the Sun and Moon, and spoke to the ocean tides, in love with Nature. Magick was always real to me, and continues to be.

I learned of Queen Mab as a child, and have been paying homage to her for many years, receiving great blessings over time.

Mab loves flowers, candy, glass beads and all kinds of sweet treats and trinkets. There are traditions of offering her these items, including the burning of summer incense and blue and white candles in her honor.

At midnite on June 23rd, (tonite), I did my yearly ritual to Queen Mab, and wrote her quite a lengthy poem, which I could tell delighted her. (I will publish it soon.)

In Mab’s honor, and to tune into her mystical presence, I made a special Midsummer’s Eve Faery Queen Oil, a combination of Frankincense, Pine, Rosemary and other summery scents, careful to use a magickal number of drops for each. (Contact me for the recipe).

After consecrating my altar and all the items, I conjured forth the denizens of the Faery Realm; The Sylphs of the East, the Salamanders of the South, the Undines of the West, and the Gnomes of the North, offering them sweets and other delights.

I anointed my candles with the Faery oil, and poured out spring water into a silver bowl, filled with magickal stones. Of course, no offering to Mab would be complete without adding some delicate flowers, including a rose wreath. Then, I burned a scroll filled with written wishes inside my cauldron, and afterward scattered the ashes to the four winds.

As the incense wafted thru the warm nite air, I scryed into my magick mirror, placed within a silver bowl filled with the blessed spring water. What visions, I may not tell — but, all good Faery Scryers receive personal mystical messages

In my vision, Queen Mab rode toward me from an astral vortex, in her magnificent Faery carriage, (drawn by 4 white horses) and swooped up my offerings, laughing wildly — as she loves to do.

Queen Mab speaks to me clairaudiently with the most lovely voice, and tells me secrets regarding Nature. She always brings inspiration and joy.

Faery folk herald Mab’s arrival filling the air with music from other worlds, which is ethereal and haunting — unlike any other sound I’ve ever heard. They play their flower trumpets, singing her praises in their tiny, gleeful voices, as they lead her procession into our world.

Queen Mab, and her Faeries will celebrate with us for a day of joy and glee, enchanting us all with their presence, if we but take the time to listen. May you all hear the song. ~V~

Queen Mab on Midsummer’s Eve

June 23rd, 2017 by Voxx

Great Tidings to you all upon this wondrous Midsummer’s Eve … which, by now is Midsummer’s Day.

It’s the night when the Queen of the Faeries — Mab, opens the door of Magick, between our world and her own.

I have always lived a life full of visions, music and magick since childhood. I prayed to the Sun and Moon, and spoke to the ocean tides, in love with Nature. Magick was always real to me, and continues to be.

Total Solar Eclipse of the Heart!

November 13th, 2012 by Voxx

Greetings All,

Forget December 21st, 2012 — that date was just a bluff! TODAY is the day the Mayans were predicting as “The End of the World”. Just because the Earth will still be spinning by midnight doesn’t mean today’s impact won’t be felt for many years to come. Here’s a little description of the Astrological “merde” that will be hitting “le fan” today!

Astrological Events for Tuesday, November 13th, 2012:

1) Total Solar Eclipse of the Sun at 21:57 Degrees Scorpio; (2:17 pm PST) The New Moon in Scorpio will eclipse the Sun at that exact degree.

2) Mercury Square Neptune at 00:24 Degrees (Sagittarius and Pisces, respectively); (4:02 pm PST)

3) Mercury (Retrograde) Enters Sagittarius at 00:00 Degrees; (11:42 pm PST)

Predictions Regarding Solar Eclipses: Without fail, you can expect the passing of a member of Royalty. One of the last Solar Eclipses in the sign of Leo resulted in the suicide of one of the son’s of the late (and former) Shah of Iran.

Predictions Regarding Mercury Square Neptune: This presages even MORE superstorms to come. Mercury is still retrograde as well, so all that wind and water will continue to wreak havoc worldwide.

Predictions Regarding Mercury Retrograde at 00:00 Degrees Sagittarius: The retrograde movement of Mercury hitting “zero” degrees will seriously intensify the mutable Square aspect.

When you realize that Mercury/Hermes (as “Psychopompous”, Guide of the Dead) is at a zero/portal degree with Pisces, (with its Lord Poseidon, ruler of the Ocean), it’s easy to understand how wind and water will join forces to change the shape of the coasts. Quite frankly, these aspects make my accurate Tsunami prediction look like child’s play. (See my posted prediction on the March 8th, 2011 entry).

I’ve been incredibly accurate about the dates of these predictions, as well as what to expect. The Mayans were using December 21st, 2012 as a convenient ploy to get us ready for the important, and unavoidable changes we need to prepare for.

It’s not the “end of the world”, per se — but, it is time to tear down the old world, and make way for the new. Don’t be afraid. Although we are still in the middle of the darkest hour, remember the Mayans worshipped the Morning Star, harbinger of the New Dawn. It’s almost here!

I will be posting more info regarding Mercury Retrograde at 29 Degrees Scorpio, which will happen two more times in the upcoming month!

Contact me for a Astrological/Psychic Reading today, to find out how today’s Astrological Aspects will affect your life in the months to come!

Blessings,
~Voxx~
