New Spring, New Kind of Lemonade!

As promised, I posted not to long ago a recipe that I experimented with. It was the first night of the Spring season, and I felt inspired for something refreshing, and relaxing.

My husband has had a good stash of cannabis in the pile, and I thought it was a good time to medicinally use some of it. That, and I had a good amount of lemons that needed to go.

What are the magickal properties to this wonderful recipe, you might be wondering? Well, my full intention was a good positive purifying recipe, from the lemons. For the cannabis, I used it to bring a deep calming spiritual balance. And of course, the sugar to sweeten and bless.

So, at about one in the morning, I went at it! (I knoooooow, late night owl over here lol).

Here are the ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 6 cups Water
  • 1 1/2 cup lemon juice (about 6-8 lemons)
  • 1 tbsp Cannabis (or how ever much you prefer. 1 tbsp is pretty mellow per one cup.)

Instructions:

  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, cannabis, and 1 1/2 cup of water. Cook over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. 4-5 minutes. Then turn down the heat and let it simmer for 22 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, begin juicing your lemons until you are at 1 1/2 cup of liquid. I like to use a cheesecloth to strain out the pulp. If you’re a pulp person, then never mind this step.
  3. Now, remove the cannabis syrup from the heat, strain, and pour into your pitcher. Stir in lemon juice. Let the syrup cool. Then, add the rest of the water and stir until well combined.
  4. Store in the refrigerator, and enjoy over ice.

*Note* So, for a 1 tbsp of cannabis per one pitcher, I found it to be very relaxing and soothing. It took 3 cups for me to actually feel any other effects, and really, that only helped me sleep deeper. So, if your one that prefers a mellow blend, then this recipe should do. For one that wishes for a stronger effect, add 1 or more tbsp to your sugar water mix.

*Note Note* If you are on a certain diabetic or keto restricted diet, then you can do what I actually did for this recipe. Substitute the cane sugar for your own sugar substitute. In this case, I used monk’s fruit sugar. Same measurement. Yum!

Step 1.

Step 2.

Step.3

I hope you enjoy this blend responsibly, and legally! Have fun!

Air Magick

Ok! Let’s talk about Air Magick!
I love love love the element of Air. When I was little, that was the first element that called to me. I spent so much time outside, listening to the wind, watching the trees dance from it. And even found peace and nurturing wisdom while I was down. Over time, I learned how to call to each direction. Finding each one delivering a different need and advice.

I found the North wind to hold many memories of the past, and connects to others who are far across. The North wind is powerful and ancient, and takes promises seriously. From that, I developed magicks based on

  • Message Spells
  • Oath Spells
  • Past Life Spells
  • Initiation Spells
  • Memory Spells
  • Growth Spells
  • Wisdom

The East wind was a tremendous help during my years of magickal discovery. Taught me focus and meditation. And whenever I went into the astral world, I found myself always facing East. From this I learned to connect to my intuition naturally. Which then developed

  • Psychic Spells
  • Astral Travel
  • Spirit Contact
  • Mental Spells
  • Manifesting Spells
  • Travel
  • Knowledge Spells

The South wind has always felt like a challenger to face. It summons courage and demands respect. Almost like facing a warrior that assesses your strength and vulnerabilities. Expecting you to search for your inner power. With this powerful wind, I found

  • Self Power Spells
  • Heightened Power Spells
  • Courage Spells
  • Road Opener Spells
  • Success
  • Commanding Spells
  • Lover Spells
  • Breaking a Habit

The West wind has always been a friend and ally for me. Having been helped by it on more than one occasion, my heart has always been opened to it. That is why, it is the wind of the heart and has inspired spells related to such matters.

  • Healing Spells
  • Love Spells
  • Peace Spells
  • Happiness Spells
  • Truth Spells
  • Purification Spells

And so much more to discover as you work and meditate with each wind.
Now each wind has a God/Lord assigned to each. Through many cultures, they have been called numerous names. I personally use their Greek names. Something about them had called to me. They are called

The Anemoi

Boreas – Who is of the North Wind Special Offerings: Stone Piles
Formally called on high peaks.

Eurus – Who is of the East Wind Special Offerings: Incense of Sage & Bay
Formally called in open valleys/meadows.

Notus – Who is of the South Wind Special Offerings: Bonfire or Flame
Formally called in dry sunny areas.

Zephyrus – Who is of the West Wind Special Offerings: Libations
Formally called by ocean waters.

And Aeolus is the God of Air and the Winds all together.

Special Offerings: An altar dedicated to him with all elements from above. Call to him on an area that incorporates all winds. Somewhere high where they can meet.
Of course, they can still be called in a pinch, from wherever you are, but your intentions must be loud and clear. And if your offering is special, all the better.

Now, let’s discuss how we invoke the wind. A breeze.
There are many different methods. You’d be surprise by how much others had created in order to summon the wind.
In fact, I’m sure everyone has tried a different way.
I will cover two of my own wind calling spells here, and other spells that I’ve seen and tried.

SPELL 1

I created this when I was young was easier for me at that time to do when I was outside. I would draw in the ground the symbol of air, and a rune within it. Come to find out later in life, that it was the Dagaz symbol for dawn. And call the wind for a heavy breeze. After practicing this for a while, I found that over time I no longer needed to draw the symbol in the ground, but easily visualized it in my mind’s eye, and then would call out to the wind. As a child I didn’t formally call to it, only spoke to it in a friendly manner. But when I grew older, I started to chant out in either ancient Norse (Icelandic) or in Latin. This is what I would say in order to call the wind to rise.

“Vindur Haekkun”

(The picture of the symbol below)

SPELL 2

When I wished for not only wind, but clouds, and even rain. A good gloomy day really. And that was braiding my hair. I use to braid my hair and imagine the weather I wanted. I would do this until I was done. I’d keep my hair braided for the day. And either when night came or morning, I unbraided it. Visualizing the magick/wind releasing. I often got good results from this, and ended up giddy. Lol

Other spells I’ve seen had often used tools or herbs.

SPELL 3

One was using a broom. Sometimes being specifically made and enchanted to call the winds. This broom would be thrown in the air. Preferably on a hill, to summon the winds. And then being burned to stop them, or to stop a bad storm. Then buried in the ground.

SPELL 4

Another was using grains of paradise (an herb), and tossing it to each direction to call for favorable winds. The same can be done with rice even. And wishes can be made the same time. But that’s not good for the birds.

SPELL 5

The last spell I’ve seen for this, is actually quite nifty and enjoyed testing it. It had called for a naturally made clay jar with a cork. Preferably one that was made by you, but its not needed. Still worked for me. Then a wind symbol was drawn on it, or in my case, I simply painted the words WIND on it. On a windy day, go outside, and open the jar. And as soon as the wind stops blowing, cork the jar. On a different day, when wind is needed, go outside, and open the jar. A wind should pick up after doing so. This was amazing to test and do. Sadly, my jar had fallen over and broke surprisingly. And I never went and got a new one. But this is recommended to try!

That’s what I got so far. So go ahead and practice with these! And if you have anything similar, please share!

Enjoy trying some awesome Air Magick!

Blue Moon Magick

Welcome!

Oh, how the blessed Moon is glowing on this night. A night of power, the energy high, for tonight is a Blue Moon night! I have so much inspiration coming in, I figured to share a few spells and recipes!

Let’s start with what I plan to do this night. I felt it fitting to create my blue moon balm oil. I make this blend to keep on hand for when a dreary day takes over. It keeps for a month, and it helps to keep in the fridge.

Blue Moon Balm

What is needed:

4 ounces of unscented body lotion
Or
2 ounces of olive oil
Or
2 ounces of sweet almond oil.

In this case, I’m going to use almond oil, with a bit of vitamin E.

Then the oils:

2 drops Chamomile
2 drops Myrrh
8 drops Rosemary
8 drops Geranium

Considering Myrrh oil being pretty expensive, powder or resin form can be used instead. And strained later.

Prepare the room for which you will bless this oil.

Light 1 blue candle, and hum a joyful tune as you blend the oils. That part is important, for you want happy jolly energy instilled in the mix. Stir clockwise for 20 times.

After blending, place outside under the moonlight, and let it soak in for a good bit. But bring back before the sun rises. And then store in a cool dark place. Or even the fridge. Gives it a nice coolness for when you use it. Hmmm.

Afterwards, use this oil whenever your having a gloomy, dreary day.
And when you do, relight the same blue candle, and then apply the oil to your skin after a shower. All the while, humming the same lullaby.

Be sure to test this blend on a small surface of your skin to make sure you aren’t allergic.

And if you wish to create a large amount, double the recipe per batch. And double the amount of stirring clockwise.

A full Moon ritual isn’t complete without a tea recipe! And since I’ve been so inspired, I will write two of my favorites.

Full Moon in Libra

Tea Recipe

Per pot of tea:

1/4 tsp Mugwort

1/4 tsp Jasmine Flowers

1/4 tsp Spearmint

1/4 tsp Marjoram

This is based with dry herbs. If using fresh marjoram, double the amount.

Brew this tea when the hour strikes midnight. I enjoy this recipe to gain mental, emotional, and spirit balance. And with the marjoram added, it instills courage of heart, and happiness.

Use this recipe to connect with the elements and of the Moon. But if you need an extra surge of power, towards specific courage, then consider this next tea blend.

Lately, courage has been a great topic between everyone I’ve come to talk to. So, this recipe goes out to them!

Now the question is, courage or caution?

Courage Tea

Per cup:

1 bag of your favorite kind of Tea (preferably green)

1/2 tsp Chamomile Flowers

1/2 tsp Thyme, dry

1/4 tsp Yarrow, dry

Mix in some warm honey milk, to sweeten the transition of courage into the heart.

Every process of this tea brew is important. First keep the herbs separated. When your ready to begin, take in a deep and focus breath. Then bring each herb up to your heart, one at a time. And then smell each one. Through your fingertips, let each herb fall into the tea cup.

Visualize the tea cup as a doorway into your heart. As each herb is blended, focus on each one being a key to opening your heart. When you pour the semi boiling water over the blend, see this as the flame of courage tunneling through into your heart.

Let it brew for 3-5 minutes. All the while, hold the cup close, and breathe in the invigorating aroma of the tea. Feel its strength. And when you sip on the tea, chant:

Fear is but a thing of the past.

Courage now rules,

For I am its keeper.

May your full Moon be filled with magick and witchery! I know I’m looking forward to it!

Blessed Be )○(

Spring Equinox Magick

Hi! And welcome!

Rejoice! For Spring has come again! With it, renewal, and new beginnings!

This is a time of sparkling new paths, and time of action towards a fulfilling year. What this Tea Witch’s house has in store is a purifying magickal bath to prepare the mind and heart for a new season, and for whatever Spring has to offer us.

This spell I did under the recent new moon night, however, this spell is also perfect for a day such as the Spring Equinox.

Lately, I’ve been inspired by bath and water magick. I guess it’s the season that’s stirred it. The weather being extra rainy this time of year.

RENEWAL BATH POTION

1/4 palm size Sandalwood, White or Red
1/4 palm size Willow Bark, White
1/4 palm size Myrrh
1/4 palm size Hemp (medicinal cannabis optional 😉) * For this particular recipe, I’m going to use an oil base.

First I’m brewing the blend in boiling water, then will let it steep, and cool till I’m ready for my bath. I’m calling for prosperous, protective, and transcendent energies.

Then later, I plan on drawing the bath, and blessing it with sea salt. Then use the tea blend to manifest my spell.
I’m going to use this spell to shed away my late seasonal energy, and renew for a greater prosperous and loving season. That is why I chose the Red Sandalwood. Go for White Sandalwood if calling for more of a calm relaxed season.

This is especially a great spell to do now, or night of the Equinox. I’m also going to use the dry herb blend for the same spell. But this time, I will be burying portions of it at each corner of my homeland for the same outcome.

So looking forward for what this new Spring Season is going to bring!

May it also grant you best wishes and hearty joy!

Blessed Be

May Day Magick

Happy Beltane, one and all!

And a very magical May day as well. 

Did you find yourselves out at dawn, rolling in the morning dew for a youth spell? Did you collect the blooming buds of flowers to weave beauty and charm into your life? Or alight the great Beltane fires and jumped over them to bring fortune for the rest of the year!

Beltane is one among the fire festivals of the seasons. The coming of two seasons, joining together for electric Spring and Summer passion. It’s after this holiday, that many could say notice a magical air within the weather. A cool and heated embrace.

Many witches love to cast their magicks during this time. The energies are charged. Wiccans associate this with the aftermath of the God and Goddess lovemaking. When magick is blessed by their joined power. Nevertheless, magick is especially potent; fertile, and is easily accessible at this time. 

Here are spells that are best done on Beltane, or anytime of this month. 

                    Hearth Flame Spell

Turn off all the lights of the home just before sunset. 

Outside, create a bonfire. Traditionally, 9 woods were casted into the fire to create a universal blessing. These woods are:

  • Birch
  • Rowan
  • Ash
  • Willow
  • Hawthorn
  • Alder 
  • Oak
  • Holly
  • Hazel

As the fire is ablaze, light a white candle and bring it into the home to rekindle the hearth fire. 

One can say a prayer or chant:

                     temporum beneficia
Season’s blessings. 

Allow the white candle to burn down for the rest of the night. And the spell is done.

»»»»

                Flame and Smoke Spell

For the coming summer, one has to cleanse and prepare. The summer season is time of change and activity, so this purification will help get you ready for the challenges to come. 

Gather 2 candles. Color code it to fit with the sort of cleansing you wish. 

  • White is universal cleanse
  • Yellow is mental cleanse
  • Blue is emotional cleanse
  • Green is body cleanse
  • Purple is spirit cleanse

Gather 2 incense. Again try to best fit with your cleanse. 

  • Frankincense is universal
  • Copal is mental
  • Myrrh is emotions
  • Sandalwood is body
  • Dragon’s Blood is spirit

Sit in between these candles and incense and allow it to purify all that is within. Meditate. The spell is done. 

»»»»

                    The Sun’s Blessing

The sun is fully awake at this time, and grows stronger as summer nears. Sing to the Sun at noon time, to call down his blessings for the coming summer. It doesn’t matter which song to sing, just as long as it comes from the heart. 

»»»»

                             May Rain

Any rain that falls during this month is especially potent with magical properties. Collect the rainwater in order to contribute to most any spells. From healing, to cleanses, to prosperity, and luck. To love, to happiness, to mental powers, and psychic. Rainwater can even be distilled in order to add to magical dishes and teas!

This is but a few, and yet so much more can be done during this time of May. Be inspired, and feel the magick all around!

Blessed Be

The Lyrid Meteor Shower

Great Wild Spirits! And my Star Witches!

Keep a look out for the Lyrid Meteor Shower! A great time for magick, divination, and power!

Magick especially to consider:

  • Trance work
  • Divination
  • Astral Travel
  • Underworld Connections
  • Spirit Communion
  • Love Magick
  • Inspirational Magick
  • Power

The Lyrid meteor shower offers 10 to 20 meteors per hour at its peak on a moonless night. The peak numbers are expected to fall on the morning of April 21 or 22. In 2017, the light of the waning crescent moon won’t too greatly interfere with this year’s Lyrid shower. In rare instances, Lyrid meteors can bombard the sky with up to nearly 100 meteors per hour. No Lyrid meteor storm is expected this year… but you never know.

The Lyrid meteor shower has the distinction of being among the oldest of known meteor showers. Records of this shower go back for some 2,700 years.

The Lyrid Meteor Shower shoots out from the Lyra Constellation. Lyra constellation lies in the northern sky. It represents the lyre, a musical instrument with strings used in antiquity and later times.

The constellation is associated with the myth of the Greek musician and poet Orpheus. It was first catalogued by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd century.

Lyra contains Vega, the fifth brightest star in the sky and second brightest star in the northern hemisphere, and the famous variable star RR Lyrae. It is also home to several notable deep sky objects, including the globular cluster Messier 56, the planetary nebula Messier 57 (the Ring Nebula), the merging triplet of galaxies NGC 6745, and the open cluster NGC 6791.

The Summer Triangle is formed by the brightest stars in each of the constellations of Lyra, Cygnus and Aquila. 
The beautiful Ring Nebula can be found within the Lyra constellation, between the stars of Sulafet and Sheliak.

Different cultures interpreted Lyra differently. In Wales, the constellation is known as King Arthur’s Harp or King David’s Harp. The Persian poet Hafiz referred to it as the Lyre of Zurah. Vega is Lyra’s most notable star, so it’s not surprising that this constellation is also associated with eagles and vultures. The Incas called this constellation Urcuchillay, who is a multicolored llama deity who watched over animals. For Christians, this constellation has been called Praesepe Salvatoris, or the Manger of the Infant Savior.
Here is a great tarot spread for this meteor shower. 

Enjoy and many blessings!

All About Imbolc!

​Get ready for Imbolc! 

Traditionally, Imbolc can be celebrated either on the 1st of February, or on the 2nd. Some celebrate during both days; from sunset to sunset. Imbolc is one of the fire festivals, and is typically celebrated with candlelight. Lots and lots of candlelight! Ceremonies are created outside, in the cold winter chill, to usher in the Sun’s warmth into the soil of Earth. Homes are prepared for the coming of Spring. By means of spring cleaning, and cleansings.  Seeds are blessed. Either for the garden, or for growth spells. Purification rites, and cleansing baths are drawn. Kitchen magick is ablaze to enchant the heart and thaw the mind. By whatever which way to awaken the spirit, is perfect to do during these days! 

If a festival shall ever arise, be sure to have proper refreshments! Such as this delicious spiced wine recipe!

                Spiced Wine for Imbolc

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups pineapple juice; organic if possible
  • 1 cup orange juice; freshly squeezed is best
  • 1/4 cup (or to taste) raw, local honey
  • 9 whole cloves 
  • 3 cinnamon sticks 
  • Pinch of sea salt  

Add all ingredients to a crock pot and heat on high for 2 hours, stirring once or twice.
Turn crock pot to low, remove lid, and wait for juice mixture to come to below 180 degrees.

Add a bottle of red wine, and allow to warm up.

Either drink warm, chilled, or room temp; all are good. Although, I happened to like it chilled. 
If one plans to do a ceremony to honor the holiday, here is an incense and oil recipe.

                        Imbolc Incense

Measure by how much you want. 

  • 6 Parts Frankincense
  • 4 Parts Dragon’s Blood
  • 2 Parts Red Sandalwood
  • 1 Part Cinnamon

                             Imbolc Oil

  • 8 drops Frankincense
  • 6 drops Rosemary
  • 2 drops Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Base Oil

Now, if there are baking lovers out there, and wish to push the love of pie making into your craft and holiday, here is a deliciously simple blackberry pie recipe! And if you wish, can even dedicate it to the Goddess Brighid, who is a popular Goddess for this holiday. 

              Brighid’s Blackberry Pie

  • 1 (15 ounce) package pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
  • 4 cups of fresh blackberries
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/5 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a 9 inch deep dish pie pan with one of the crusts. If you wish to dedicate this pie to the holiday, carve a symbol on the bottom of the pie crust with a tooth pick. 

In a bowl, mix the sugar, flour, and salt together. Sprinkle over blackberries in a larger bowl, and toss to coat. Pour into the pie crust. Dot with butter. Place the other pie crust over and secure the ridges. Slice a design over the top of the pie crust to vent steam. 

Place in the oven for 1 hour, or until crust begin to brown. Let cool to room temperature before serving to allow the filing to set. 

Blessed Be, and have a beautiful Imbolc days.

The First Spell

The Spirit of Flight. The Spirit of Flight, the force responsible for the powers of movement of the wind and air, has gathered  around her all the flying things she loves. Birds, insects, flying fish, swirling leaves, seeds of  dandelions and sycamore trees, butterflies and fairies all dance around her in a grand array of wild  free motion.:

Today was a day of remembrance. I found myself outside on a beautiful sunny-windy day. Gazing up to the sky, feeling the wind against my skin, reminded me of when I was little and had done my first spell. I smiled to myself, recalling the sweet innocence of magick when I was young. I had little knowledge of the craft but I knew in my heart, despite not knowing the correct term for it, magick was all around.

It was fascinating how magical occasions would arise. For example, whenever I would wish for something with all my might, it would occur, and there I was staring wide-eyed amazed that it had happened. This was especially during a time when my parents would explain how magick wasn’t real. But I had refused to believe that. If that was the truth, then how was it that wishes would come to be every time I truly desired them? It was after this questioning that I remembered I longed for answers.

One day, after a particular disagreement with my parents, I had gone outside. I rested on a swing, fuming with sadness and confusion. I remember feeling utterly alone and misunderstood. It was overwhelming and I admittedly began to cry. Not long after tears were falling that I had suddenly found myself feeling not alone. I will never forget this; it was the first time I ever felt a divine presence. Immediately I was soothed by a comforting light within my heart.

Sweetly, I had asked, “Are you there?”

The wind blew. To clarify, this was a hot dry day. There was no breeze when I was outside until this moment.

Once I felt this breeze, my soul had trembled. There was no denying that I knew something, or someone was listening. Again, I asked, “Are you here to help me?”

Another strong wind. With this, I felt a feminine energy, and a feeling of peace consumed me. I rose from the swing bench and stared up into the sky. “What should I do?”

The answer that came then is truly difficult to describe. All I knew was I had to raise my hands to the sky, and call out. I called for the wind. I don’t know what it was, but I just needed a cool breeze. Needed something to soothe the ache. My request was granted by a wonderful gust of wind, and I remember the unbelievable cleanse that consumed me.It had rushed into my lungs. Chills shot through out my body, and for a moment I felt whole.

Thinking back, I now know I had casted a spell for a purification. A wind spell. And the Goddess had shown me how to do it. Ever so grateful for how I felt, I was a believer after that day. Nothing anyone would say, friends, parents, strangers, had ever shaken that belief. After that, I found myself doing a lot of wind spells. That was my element of choice. That is until I found books to help teach me how to cast with other elements. Every time I had done an element spell, I felt closer to the Goddess, and found where I belonged.

I suppose today, as the wind caressed my face, it casted its own memory spell over me. The beautiful sister wind showing me where my path had begun. To this day, I am so grateful. Grateful to the gifts the Goddess has given me.

Tea Cermony for Growth

Merry meet! And welcome!

Today felt like the perfect day to throw a little tea ceremony for my grape vine hedge. The other day I noticed some seedlings growing and I was thrilled! This year they grew so lush, I just knew a good crop could grow.
To help them, I felt like a sweet tea party and cleansing would bring them positive energies.
I had first lit sage and cleansed across the hedge. All the while, chanting to the nature spirits to come and join me for the blessing.
After, I set up my tea pot and brewed a blooming blossom from the garden. I said a prayer to the Goddess. To continue to help my hedge grow.
Once I said my prayer, I took a few sips then offered the rest of the brew to my grape vines.
The beauty of the day lingered till sunset. The wind was soothing and the ground moist. The moon began to show her light, and ever more did I feel complete.
This way of tea ceremony is ideal for other gardens or hedges. It is small and simple which is wonderful. It leaves more time to spend your day in nature.
Well, thank you for reading!
Blessed be to you all!

The Tea Witch
