Similarities Between Adjacent Signs


Aries and Taurus – The 1st and 2nd signs are both headstrong and self-assured. They don’t much rely on the help of others and they prefer to do things in their own way. Something that is common for these two is their unwillingness to take the advice of others. Taurus tends to already have their own ideas and a plan in mind, whereas Aries is more likely to prefer navigating situations based on their instinct.

Taurus and Gemini – The 2nd and 3rd signs of the Zodiac are united in their perceptive abilities. Both are carefully observant of their environment and they are constantly engaged with it. Taurus is sensually engaged, absorbing things like tactile and olfactory information with ease. Gemini tends toward mental engagement through sight and sound, they prefer to manipulate and experiment with their surroundings.

Gemini and Cancer – The 3rd and 4th signs tend toward moodiness. They’re both extremely volatile in their emotional nature and can run the gamut from extreme happiness to extreme depression. For Gemini this volatility can be generated internally from the constant inner monologue that they are subject to, and dark thought cycles can take hold rapidly because of that.

WITCH’S SIGIL WHEEL

Decide on a word that resembles what you want to accomplish, such as LOVE, HEALTH, or PROTECTION. Then, starting from the first letter trace the letters of your word in a straight line from one to another, ending with the last letter of your word. If you want, you can connect the last line back to the first to create a closed shape, or leave it as an open one.

When you’re finished, you have a simple sigil then can be etched into a candle and burnt down, or you can write it down on paper and add it to a small bottle or pouch with herbs.
