Monthly Stargazing Calendar for July 2013~ Posted on Jul 2, 2013 by Paul.
This month there will be only one major astronomical event. On July 27, 28 we will witness the Southern Delta Aquarids meteor shower. It is an average shower that can produce up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak on the night of July 27 and morning of July 28, but some meteors can be visible from July 12 to August 23. The meteor shower originates from debris left behind by comets Marsden and Kracht. Unfortunately the second quarter moon will block out most of the faint meteors, but with some patience you should still be able to catch quite a few good ones. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will appear to radiate from the constellation of Aquarius, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
Moon phases As you know, the moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. So here are the moon’s phases for this month:
Positions of the planets this month Mercury: The closest planet to the Sun can be seen at dawn and dusk travelling across the constellation of Gemini, not far from the planets Jupiter and Mars. This planet, being the closest to the Sun, will appear to move quickly in the night sky and its position will change in the following weeks.
Venus: The sister planet can be seen in the constellation of Leo. Just like Mercury, Venus can only be seen at dawn and dusk.
Mars: The red planet can be seen travelling across the constellation of Gemini, not far from the planets Jupiter and Mercury.
Jupiter: The gas giant is visible on the edge of the constellation of Gemini. Jupiter can easily be spotted with the naked eye, even in highly illuminated cities.
Saturn: The ringed giant can be seen with the naked eye between the constellations of Virgo and Libra.
Uranus: The gas giant can be seen between the constellations of Pisces and Cetus with the use of a telescope.
Neptune: The blue giant requires a telescope pointed in the constellation of Aquarius in order to be seen.
Major astronomical events next month August 11, 12 – Perseids meteor shower. August 27 – Neptune at Opposition.

I have been using Devils Shoestring for as long as I can remember in magickal work and spells. Even though the magickal aspects of Devils Shoestring are strong and powerful, I can not find any cases it has been used in the area of healing.
You can take Devil’s Shoestring and use it as a charts or add it to pouches and bags to be carried for the intent of the magick being worked. Devil’s Shoestring can be added with other herbs to increase the strength of the spell and or magick. Depending on the need and the magick, Devil’s Shoestring can be carried for luck and luck in gambling. If you carried some during legal matters, it will be assured the outcome being desired. Devil’s Shoestring seems to add haste to the results when added to spells and concoctions for finding a new job or a promotion in your present job.
Medical Uses; None Found.
Job answer spell;
To find out how many days or weeks until you get the results on your job quest. Take a long peace of Devil’s Shoestring and stoke it in a glass of fresh pure water, like rain water, no chlorine or additives, for 3 days. If during the 3 days you have not received an answer back about the job, take the Devil’s Shoestring from the water and tie it in a gentle knot, be careful not to break it. Tie it as many times as you can. This will give you the number of weeks until you hear back about the job.
Other; Just a note; Don’t try to pull it or tie it so hard as to assure the Devil’s Shoestring will break quickly. That’s cheating and it will give you a false answer as well.
The only healing information I could find using Devil’s Shoestring was that carrying it would ward off illness.

I have mixed feelings about this...I love Johnny Depp's work and I can see why they would want Native American actors to play Native American characters...however, it is called ACTING because we inhabit someone OTHER than ourselves...I think that Native Americans could ably play Caucasian people and vice versa...Johnny Depp DOES have Indian blood and has done TONS for Native American causes. I hope we can remember this before we vilify him...
