The Zodiac: A "Parade of Animals"

The Zodiac or "Parade of Animals" is a band of astronomical constellations and astrological signs that can be viewed from earth as encircling ring of "belt" inside of which the Sun, Moon, and planets make their yearly courses. The Zodiacal signs form a calendar that begins on the Spring Equinox, and runs through the following signs, each approximately one month in duration:

  • Aries the Ram: March 21 - April 19;
  • Taurus The Bull: April 20 - May 20;
  • Gemini The Twins: May 21 - June 21;
  • Cancer The Crab: June 21 - July 21;
  • Leo The Lion: July 21 - August 21;
  • Virgo The Virgin: August 21 - September 21;
  • Libra The Scales: September 21 - October 21;
  • Scorpio The Scorpion: October 21 - November 21;
  • Sagittarius The Archer: November 21 - December 21;
  • Capricorn The Sea-Goat: December 21 - January 21;
  • Aquarius The Water-Bearer: January 21 - February 21;
  • Pisces The Fishes: February 21 - March 21;

    In addition to formulas related to the each of the twelve signs of the zodiac, Lucky Mojo Zodiacal products include a proprietary blend called Zodiac:, which is comprised of all the individually named Zodiacal range in one convenient formula.

    The Zodiac blend can be used when one is working for, with, or against a group of people of diverse signs of the Zodiac, or when the Zodiac of a target-person is not known. It is also employed by astrologers who have a reverence for the Zodiacal parade as a whole and wish to honour the astrological wheel without having to compound their own blend of several dozen essential oils. It is, in short, an all-purpose astrological compound, as useful and economical as it is traditional.



    Lucky Mojo Zodiacal Vigil Lights or Glass-Encased Candles find general use in promoting altar work, either as "helper lights" or to represent people of various signs. These candles have full-colour paper labels naming Aries, Taurus, Gemini, and other astrological signs, with information about their attributes. They are made of soft wax in symbolic colours and will burn continually for at least 120 hours. They stay alight for many days and are appropriate for petitions and prayers. Some people dress Zodiacal candles with anointing oils; others do not.

    Lucky Mojo Zodiacal Oils find general use in dressing candles to represent persons born in a particular sign, to dress any sort of conjure candles whose petitions are appropriate to the astrological sign thus named, or to be worn as personal scents during the months associated with those signs in order to strengthen connections to the energies represented by the signs of the zodiac. Some workers keep a "Master Candle" on their altar at all times and dress it each month with that month's appropriate Zodiacal oil.

    Lucky Mojo Zodiacal Incense Powders may be burned on the altar or in a room to bring closer the influences of the energies represented by the Astrological Signs.

    Lucky Mojo Zodiacal Bath Crystals may be used in ritual baths or rites of house cleaning during the month-long time-period associated with each of the Astrological Signs.

    Lucky Mojo Zodiacal Sachet Powders may be used to dress petition papers, to dust on the body, or to subtly work into a carpet or door mat during the times of the year symbolically related to the various Astrological Signs.

    All of our Lucky Mojo Zodiacal products may be combined with our Lucky Mojo Planetary products when working astrologically-based or timed magic spells.




    Let's put the above ideas into practice. Say your candles were four in number, and they were:

    Some practitioners would light all four magical candles at once on one altar. I would not. At Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, we have FOUR altars, and in this particular case, that selection of candles happens to work out to one candle per altar. Our altars are:

    So if you were working in my church, i would recommend that you light one anointed candle on each altar, with the Road Opener coming first.

    However, if you wished to add the power of the twelve zodiacal signs to your spells, i would suggest that you select helper lights that relate to the persons for whom the work is being done. In other words, i would recommend that you light TWO spell-candles at a time, each on a different day, selecting the day according to the ruling planet of that form of work.

    These eight candles could either be placed at the same altar on the different days -- or on different altars on the days indicated.

    You do not need to have twelve altars, one for each sign of the zodiac, in order to work with the energies of the Lucky Mojo Zodiacal spiritual supplies. You can have four altars, as we do at Missionary Independent, and at Four Altars Gospel Sanctuary, or even just two altars -- one facing East for attraction, and one facing West for removal.

    If you can only put up one altar, due to space considerations, you can divide it into either two halves, four quadrants, seven planetary segments, or a clock-dial circle of twelve zodiacal regions, as you wish.
