Correspondences: Days

Quite often you will need something done immediately, and the day doesn’t matter.  But each day holds its own energy, and so your spells and rituals can be more potent and more relevant on certain days.

iPhone Apps

I had a suggestion from Amy on my Facebook page asking about iPhone apps for pagans.

Can’t get much geekier than that!

So here’s what I have under the ‘Witchcraft folder’ on my iPhone:

1. Ultimate Spellcraft & Lunar Phases by Stacey Demarco (http://www.themodernwitch.com) provides free spells, a Wheel of the Year and brief explanations of each sabbat, moon phases for both the northern and southern hemispheres, and even an option to Cast an E-Spell!  A fun little app from one of my favourite witches.

2. The White Witch – covers witchy related news, YouTube videos, photos, audio, Twitter feeds, Facebook and LiveAlbum feeds.  A one-stop resource, really!

3. Live Moon Pro – a Moon phase app, provides an alarm to remind you of the next moon phase, and a full calendar for future phases.  Better yet, it auto-detects your location to accurately match the correct moon phase.

4. Virtual Candle – when I need to light a candle without a candle or a match, I turn on my phone, direct my intent and light the virtual candle.  Great for meditation too (would suit those college dorms where candles aren’t allowed!).

5. Dreamcatcher – learn what all those weird and wonderful dreams are about.

6. Crystals – gives you a run down of a select few crystals – more can be included with an upgrade.

Do you have any apps that you’ve found useful on your path?
