Your activity is to burn black candles to absorb negativity and burn purple ones to increase your magical wisdom and boost your spirituality. Close up the final day of the bewitching week with a bang by calling on Hecate for protection and guidance. Put up a barrier to keep the unwelcome out, eliminate the things that make you miserable, and wash your hands of anything other than your hopes, dreams and goals.

NoteworthyThe next retrograde cycle of Mercury will occur August 30 and last through September 22, 2016. Communication, intellect and awareness are all within Mercury's domain, as are logic and reasoning, our manner of thinking, and how we create and express our thought processes. So, when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions.
