    Great article. I?m new to Wicca , and was wondering if Sunday nights Moon which will be full and orange and appear larger than normal has any special significance. Thank you

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!

    I’d sure like to know the meaning of glowing green boot footprints in the slushy snow in winter – I made the prints in but they glowed green on the way back. Have looked a lot for this and haven’t a clue!

    Just getting started in Wicca but in amazement I am a Sagittarius and my favorite color has always been purple since I was little.

    would it hurt if you were to wear a different color and it still mean the same as the color of it’s orginall day

      madesol, this is actually an excellent question!
      Each color has its own unique meaning and properties, which are always present regardless of the current day of the week. For example, yellow color represents happiness and completeness (again, the day doesn’t matter here), but if you choose to wear yellow colored clothes on Sunday, the effect will be much stronger than wearing such clothes on any other day – because yellow is Sunday’s color. This doesn’t mean that you can’t wear the same clothes on other days, as they will still hold their color’s meaning – but won’t be as strong as on its matched day.

      So in short – it won’t hurt you to wear something with a different color from the current day’s color.
      Hope this helps!
