On The Trail Of The Pendle Witches-The Witch’s Hat

The black broad brimmed pointed hat which we associate with witches is likely to be an exaggeration of the tall, blunt topped hats of the Puritans of the 17t century. Pointed hats were frowned upon by the church, which associated points with the horns of the Devil.

The Pendle Witches Trail-Introduction To A Series

The tale of the Pendle Witches and the Witch hunts in England mainly during the 1600’s is a testament to people driven by fear, control, lust for power and ignorance. Many innocent people died due to these views. Have we really learned the lesson from these days? I say, we have not, the issues may be different but many of us do horrible things still in the name of fear, control, lust for power and ignorance.

ON THE TRAIL OF THE PENDLE WITCHES

Old Pendle, Old Pendle thou standest alone
‘twixt Burnley and Clitheroe, Whalley and Colne
Where the Hodder and the Ribble’s fair waters do meet
with Barley and Downham content at thy feet.
Folksong by Milton-Allan

Quote For The Day By ~Mike Stackpole~

“Note to the wise: whenever someone insists that he wants to buy something from you, but tells you there’s no real value in it yet, two things are happening: he’s lying, and you’re being taken.”

Daily Card: Nine Of Coins Reversed

Nine Of Coins Reversed-Description Of The Card: Compromising financial stability due to overdoing material pleasure. Feeling bad about possessing so much. Unable to enjoy all the material possessions you have. Afraid of others envying you or being Jealous because of the great abundance you have.

Nine Of Coins Reversed-Interpretation Of The Card: This card reversed is warning you to beware of living beyond your means. Treating your resource in a careless manner, accruing heavy debts and generally being irresponsible with yours and others money. Do not spend irresponsibly to impress others or to alleviate your guilt over possessing so much. This card can also indicate achieving material success on the misfortune of others. There could be theft or fraud involved here from others, so be very careful with your possessions and money. Do not allow others to use you because they know that you have money and tend to feel bad about having so much. Whether you are being irresponsible with others money, your own or allowing others to take you for granted. You need a proper focus regarding your money and others intentions. Having a lot of money can mean it is very hard to find true friends. Watch what people do around you. Are they over accommodating to be your friend? Do they ask you to pay for things? Do they ask you for money without it being offered? These behaviors can be an indication that this person is your friend for what they can get from you and not for who you are. Be wise and careful here!

Daily Card: King Of Arrows Reversed

King Of Arrows Reversed-Description Of The Card: This King is a man and an authority figure in your life. A harsh judge, critical, but does not judge his own actions, mistrustful, suspicious when there is no reason to be. He schemes and plays complicated games. Manipulation and mind games are common with this King. He is also deceitful and a good con artist.

King Of Arrows Reversed-Interpretation Of The Card: If you have this authority figure in your life he will bring only problems, stress and issues. He does not care about other people at all. He is only after his own interests, needs and goals. He is a people user. If this man is a boss of yours, may I suggest that you do not walk but run to find a new job. This business situation is only going to be stressful, strained and headache for you. You will work very hard and never really know how to please this man or what they really want. Your work will certainly never be good enough for this man and there will always be something else that needs improving. Cut your looses and move on quickly. If you are married to this man. You will be a nervous wreck all of the time trying to figure out how to make him happy. Unless you don’t mind this kind of treatment or you enjoy trying to play mind games with him, may I advise you to get a divorce as soon as possible. Especially if you think you will be able to change this person. This man has no interest in changing or making you happy. He wants to win and he will drive you to drink. Not to mention, this person will keep your children beaten down and feeling that they can never succeed or please him either. For your peace of mind and others, divorce him. You will never love him into changing. He may come across very pleasant and kind at times but do not be fooled his intentions are not to change but to manipulate the situation. Wherever this man is in your life, it is best to cut him out of it! Count your loses and move on!

Daily Card: Six Of Coins Reversed

Six Of Coins Reversed-Description Of The Card: Envy or jealousy from those less fortunate. Giving with expectation. Looking for appreciation. Manipulating others with wealth. Resenting those who need help.

Six Of Coins Reversed-Interpretation Of The Card: This card reversed speaks of someone who has lots of wealth and possessions. They love the power that their wealth has over other people. Some poor people are jealous or envious of what this person has. Which is unfortunate that they feel this way, in many respects this person is poorer than someone who has no money and is struggling to get by. This person gives with the expectation of getting something from you in return. Your loyalty, doing whatever they want you to do without respect or appreciation. They expect others to look up to them and feel it is their right to feel this way because they have so much power because they have money. This person also feels that they can tell you exactly how you should and should not live your life. They don’t have to help you out with your decisions, if they don’t agree with your decisions then they should keep their money. There is a small mindedness to this person, a sense of entitlement..we all know someone like this. This is power that goes straight to the head. These people tend to be very lonely, sad and worried all the time. Very impoverished indeed! If you are this person, it is time to take a good look at who are becoming. It is ok to be wise with your money and to invest it to grow it. But, have you ever considered taking a percentage of your earned investment and just giving it away? Giving it away without anyone knowing it came from you and why? Do you really need appreciation or recognition for your generosity? It is much more of a blessing to you to give money anonymously, especially if you can see the thankfulness that comes your gift. Do they have to know it came from you? Your joy will be measured out ten fold if you give in secret. You can keep the pipeline of abundance going in your life and at the same time reach out and bless so many others. You will draw love and compassion your way as well. You don’t have to give your seed money away, give away a portion of what you have earned from your investments. This is extra money anyway and the blessing you bring to others will fill your cup to overflowing. If you know someone who is this person, pray for them they are very very poor indeed. Poorer than you will ever be and to be pitied.

The Brontes-Haworth In The Time Of The Brontes-Part 3

Patrick Bronte was very active in trying to improve water supply and sanitation, but was opposed by the wealthy parish ratepayers who were expected to foot the bill. An 1851 report by an Inspector of the Board of Health, brought in by Patrick, described ‘middensteads’ (heaps of human dung) everywhere in the village, no covered drains or sewers, no water closets, and on average one earth privy for every four houses. And in the slum areas, all now demolished of course, it was even worse: in two cases 24 houses shared one privy. The water supply was almost certainly polluted. The average life expectancy in Haworth village, for those who survived their first year, was 25.8 years, as bad as the worst parts of London or Liverpool. In the mills a 69 hour working week (12 hours a day with a mere 9 hours on Saturday) was the norm, but in good times 16 hours a day was possible, and in bad times the workers were laid off without pay. In theory the Factory Act of 1802 had prohibited the employment of children under nine years old, and required factory owners to provide schools for them. It was ignored. The 1833 Factory Act was better publicised, but the magistrates who should have enforced it were often mill owners themselves, and that Act too was ignored. The 1833 Act had been opposed locally. Harley Merrall, for example, agreed with a Bingley surgeon that the hours were not excessive, and that children did not need recreation. The minister of the West Street Baptist Chapel opposed the Act, and quite probably so did many of the poorest families. After all, if the menfolk were out of work, the family needed income from the children if it was to survive – which is perhaps one reason why the population of Haworth shot up between 1801-1851. There are certainly many working children shown in the 1851 census, including an 8-year-old worsted spinner living two doors from the Parsonage, and several other 8-year-old ‘factory operatives’.
