GOOD WITCH KEEPING SERIES

Merry Spring!

So, a new series came to mind while I started my Spring Cleaning. Every proper Witch always uses their magick while tending to their home. If you aren’t, then I highly recommend doing so. It is the perfect way of incorporating and practicing your craft every day. And who wouldn’t want their home sparkling with good vibes and surrounded in protection?

Therefore, I decided to list my own methods. Now, keep in mind, that every Witch has their own practices. This list is merely my own, and what has worked for my house. Either gather some ideas, or blend these practices with your own.

Now, the list is pretty explanatory. But I’ll go over them in detail if one wishes to understand how I came up with these.

New Moons are a time for starting a new cycle again. A complete cleanse from the previous energy, and to create a different sort of goals to take shape. A witch could see this as an opportune time to purify themselves, their ritual tools, altar, and homes. Hence, a good reason why I like to sweep and mop during this week of the New Moon. I love brewing together my own floorwashes and powders to use for this time. More on those recipes later.

Once the Moon begins to wax, energies are growing. Like a seed, goals begin as such. And by the time the Moon is within its first quarter, the energies are sparking. Therefore, this is a great time to burn any kind of drawing incense or simmering pots. In this case, drawing mixes that attracts fortune, luck, health, love, blessings, etc. Normally, I do these sort of drawing magicks for maintaining the positive flow in my home. To keep everyone healthy. Positive luck. Peace and creativity. Etc.

Now, it is no surprise when I write how any hearth/home magick can be done during the Full Moon. Because that is just so. The week leading up to the Full Moon is enhanced with energy. Any magick, whether it is fertility, protection, wealth, banishing, anything, is perfect for this time. So have at it!

Much like the New Moon, energies during the Last Quarter are low, but they are still humming. This is the time to put that power to rest and banish any unwanted energies that may have accumulated during the month. I like to vacuum and dust during this time. Dust bunnies and other nasty dirty particles are what is left of the old negative energies. They harbor and hold onto these remnants, so it’s important to be rid of these to prepare for the New Moon. Breaking Bad Habit spells are perfect during this chore.

I hope you enjoy the list. And keep on the look out, there will be more to the series on the way.

A Witch’s Home

I remember a time, when I was younger. Filled with wonder and adventure. With revived power and the desire to use it. I was constantly in motion. From the moment I could drive, I was on the road. Seeking wisdom and thrills, bundled together in youthful innocence. In that time, I honestly felt I had no home, and I was perfectly content to be one with the Air, in a whirlwind towards the unknowing.

It wasn’t until my twenty second year that I felt a stifling in my soul. To which I couldn’t understand why. Why was I feeling imprisoned, when I was free and roaming the land? Why did I feel lost, despite knowing where I was going? My power was waning, and I couldn’t fathom it. It wasn’t until mistakes were made, because of lack of sight, and no where to go to seek comfort, was when a vision came to me. It was nearing a Full Moon night. The pain in my heart ached, and in a pleading attempt, I called for the Moon’s aid. I asked Her to show me what was missing?

The answer was simple. I wasn’t wandering around aimlessly, or expressing my own freedom. The Great Moon had shown me that what I was really doing, was searching for my new home. It startled me at first. How could I be searching for a home, while I was living freely? While being my own person. The Moon answered.

Without purpose, there is no home to find. Without giving, there is no taking. And without balance, there is no power. Find where you belong, find where you are needed. That is your duty.

It was then, that it became clear to me. As witches, we live with the elements. Live by their example. We are born, with the flames of life in our souls. We flow through life, as water does. Travel like the wind, through land and fog. And then eventually, we sink our roots deep, to bloom and thrive. Just as the Earth shifted in place in time and in space, we too must shift to find our rightful home.

We must grow, travel, and seek the home that needs us, and that we deserve too. We must give our magick to help the land, and/or community. By giving, we will be gifted with magickal wonders. A witch’s purpose. A balance unlike anything else.

In the old days, villages had few and far in between, their own local “witch”. Who had set roots, and became the known healer, midwife, or adviser. Some had lived in these villages for generations, but most often the case was, that the witches moved in. Either through marriage, or travels. It was, I believe, a natural instinct within them, to move and travel to places where their power could thrive.

Just as our ancestors had done, we too must follow our instincts. It is our right and duty to search for fresh soil. To nurture our natural born power, at a home that calls to us. Even if that home eventually moves to another state, or country, if the call is heard, we must follow. Until our seeds are planted. Until our power feeds the land.

Honestly, the best song that comes to mind, is Simon and Garfunkel’s, America. Listen to it, and meditate. It’s inspiring.

Feast of Flora

Happy Feast of Flora, everyone!

On this day, we honor those that have past to the underworld. From our ancestors, to those that nearly passed, we give their memory meaning. For them, but also for ourselves. Every day, we face our morality. Either by the face of death, illness, or heartache, we eventually realize the same path we follow. The very same fate our ancestors learned. Because of that, there is comfort that we are not alone to face what is ahead. We shall not fear, for we too will become the next generation of ancestors.

But for now, on this day, we will honor them. We will bring to them flowers from the living, to represent the glory of paradise. And remind those their journey is only the beginning. Their end only a moment of rest. Rebirth is but around the corner. We honor their memory, with love in our hearts. Like those in the future, will one day honor us.

This here is a memory of last year. A message written for my grandmother. Same burning for my ancestors before me. I remember this night well, for I didn’t feel alone. I felt a presence. A spirit that I believe captured in this photo. (Top right)

Well, soon nightfall will be here, and with it, a new ritual to honor my ancestors. I still have the letter to my grandmother, I will burn it tonight and save its ashes for the next year.

I hope this day brings great peace to those who still remember and still honor the old ways.

Great blessings to the ancestors, and to you all.

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!

Virgo Moon! Sugar and Tea Blends

Hello and welcome to another short article for this Full Moon’s in Virgo magick stream.

I’ve always felt strongly drawn to Virgos, perhaps because my father is one. But, I believe it is also because Virgo’s carry a sense of strength like non other in the zodiac. It’s almost regal and their determination for seeking their inner truth is noteworthy.

Because of this, I decided to dedicate a tea blend for Virgos. In no way does this mean that only Virgos can drink it however. This is for anyone who wishes to seek their own inner truth.

I chose these specific teas for good reason on this full moon night. One being they each incorporate the essence of Virgo, and the Moon. Virgos are ruled by the planet Mercury, and are the element of Earth.

Lavender, in my opinion, represents all that it means to be Virgo. The flower of Mercury, it evokes chastity, peace, love, and protection.

Mugwort, being Artemis’s Herb, is also an herb of Earth. Perfect in bringing Virgo and the Moon together.

Lastly, dried Peaches. The tie that binds this blend together. This fuzzy little fruit is the Moon’s eye, and not only is it used for love and intuition, it obtains truth. So naturally, pair these all together to find your inner truth.

Here is the recipe I used for a 2 cup portion.

  • 1/2 tsp Lavender
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Peaches
  • 1/8 tsp Mugwort

If the flavor is a bit bland from the Mugwort, add a couple of pinches of coconut sugar. Yummy!

*don’t drink if pregnant or allergic. Expect lucid dreaming, and a very mild head high. Don’t drink beyond 3 days, or more than a pot of tea.*

Now, you can’t have tea without including a sweet hot bath to pair with it.

This recipe was perfect at the end of the night. Especially to align yourself with the full moon energy, and prepare your journey to inner truth. By all means, however, take this bath whenever you like.

The recipes consists of half coconut sugar, and half powdered milk. And I then added 15 drops of Bergamot essential oil. If you wish for more however, or less, that’s up to you. Although, be vigilant, since Bergamot is photosensitive. So, immediately shower after the bath. Or, even consider using earl grey tea. I would have, but I ran out of my favorite brand.

Anyways, Great Moon Blessings everyone, and enjoy the recipes!

Ultima Purgatio Ritus

This ultimate purification ritual is a seven day-long devoted process. It is to heal and nurture the mind, body, and spirit. One must be prepared to dive deep and confront what needs to be healed and let go. Each purifying day will feel fulfilled and renewed, but keep going to the very end. Each day is significant for our soul, or chakras, what have you.

When you have the week ready, begin the night before with this special tea right before bed.

Purification Tea

1 tbsp black tea
1 tsp chamomile
2 tsp fennel
2 tsp hyssop
1 tsp valerian

Make each day your own, but still follow along the same lines.

Day 1

Find a place of the Earth. Whether that be a park, a forest, or even the backyard. Anoint your pulse points with oil of Sandalwood and Patchouli, blended in jojoba oil. Lay out on the ground, barefoot, and hands faced down. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Find the center of your energy and match to that of the Earth. When you feel the connection, start to meditate on all that you fear. If you’ve experienced abandonment, neglect, major illnesses or surgeries, physical abuse, or inherited traumas, this is the time to meditate on these fears. Understand this and be honest with yourself; in no way allow these fears to torment you. Don’t hang onto them. Pour the negative energy out from you, into the ground beneath it. Visualize the fears being buried. Do this for however long you like, till you no longer feel the heavy weight. And notice a significant lightness, or renewed energy. Rise.

(If it helps to talk, speak all that you fear to the Earth.)

Day 2

Brew a cup of Jasmine tea. Then either prepare a bath, or go to the beach, lake, pond. Placing your feet into the water, drink the Jasmine tea, and then fill the cup with the water at your feet. Gaze deep into the cup of water. And feel its pull. Once you feel entranced, pour the cup of water over you. Feel yourself becoming one with the energies of water. Then submerge your whole body. As you soak, begin to meditate on all the guilt brewing in your belly. This is the time to release any guilt due to emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. Neglect. Alcohol or drug addictions, etc. Again, don’t let this stick on your insides. Let it stir in a whirlpool of energy. When you’ve finished swirling the guilt through you, pour it into the water. Feel the water’s cleansing energy flow and replace the negative. When you have absorbed enough, feel the tingling cool rush of power in you, step out of the bath, beach, pond, or lake. Air dry.

Day 3

Write down all that you are ashamed of, be honest with yourself. The burning burdens that way you down. Focus on what you wish released. Then either build a pyre, or a fire pit, or in a fire place. Create a fire. Sit and stare into the light. Feel its warmth, smell its burning flame. Be a part of the fire. Get lost in its essence. When ready, toss the page into the fire, not losing your concentration. And as the paper is burning, speak out loud all that was written. Watch it burn into nothing, and yet be purified. If you feel capable, and remaining safe without causing yourself harm, be brave and place your hand near the flame. Absorb the fire’s strength and courage. Allow it to renew you, to embolden your spirit. Either stay to watch the fire burn out on its own, or carry on as it’s burning, but always remember that the courage of Fire will never die.

Day 4

One would hope that it is a breezy/semi windy day for this. However, if it so happens to be windy on another day then do this, rather than another. But if there is absolutely no wind on any of these days, then you can create your own, by using a fan. Or you can take yourself to higher ground, where there certain to be wind. Have blended Sandalwood and Rose. Burn the incense and call to the wind. When the wind blows, feel its smooth and uplifting caress. Feel it course through you. Placing your hands over the incense, speak or meditate on all that you grieve for. What weighs down on your heart. When ready, and if the wind picks up, lift your hands and touch your heart. Begin to pull your hands away from your heart slowly. Visualize all your grief being removed from you, and drifting off into the wind. When you feel relieved of this, focus back onto the air. Breathe in each breeze that caresses you. Let it fill in the hole that was left behind. When you feel light and tingly, rise up, and turn to go. Releasing one final breathe.

*The following three days will be focused on purifying the inner soul. It will be challenging, because it is meant to tap into the inner psyche. Be brave, but above all, be honest with yourself.*

Day 5
Find a comfortable area that permits no light. It can be a simple dark room. But it must be one that you feel absolutely safe and secure in. Prepare a spot where you will be either laying or sitting at. Gather moonstones, lapis lazuli, aquamarine, or turquoise stones, and lay them out in a large circle around you. Have meditation/calming music playing in the background. Get comfortable in the darken room, and relax. In the beginning, focus on nothing but the dark. Do not think of anything else. Adrift with the sounds of the music. Free your mind, until it feels balanced. When ready, begin to ponder all the lies that have plagued you. That others have told you, what you have told yourself. Face them. Confront them. But don’t be angered, or upset by them. Approach these lies with the truth. Your truth. And accept this, recognize and secure this truth. Believe in it, and let it soak into your being. When you are done, rise, and walk back into the light, with your new found truth.

Day 6

On a sunny day, go outside. Bring with you two crystals of either amethyst, or fluorite. As well as oil of rosemary, or lavender. For those with sensitive skin, be sure to wear SPF protection. Find a favorite spot, preferably at a place where you have been before. Sit comfortably, and relax. When ready, anoint your forehead with oil. Place the two crystals on both palms facing up. Begin to meditate, clearing your mind. Explore all that you feel is a illusion in your life. All that you thought was real, but had not been, or that continues to be. This is the hardest challenge because how does one see an illusion when they are blinded to it? You must open your third eye to see. To face the reality that is in front of you, and the delusion that others place on you, or what you place on yourself. This may take time. If you feel your mind begin to wonder, return it back by repeating “ham-ksham”, and refocusing on the question, what is an illusion in your life? Most do not wish to face this, but once it is understood, the soul is nearly purified. Once this is done, and the challenges faced, raise your face to the Sun and let the light shine into your soul. The light of certainty.

Final Day

This is it. The full completion of your purification. The end of your pilgrimage towards spiritual wellbeing, and self love. Go to a place that incorporates all the elements from the past week. Such as a park near water, with candles of white or purple, and incense of Jasmine and Frankincense. Where one could feel the breeze, hear the birds or music, see the light of the Sun, and sit in the shade under a tree. Or in your own home, with all these elements gathered around you. Begin your meditation. Clear thought, relax. Focus on all the elements around you. When ready, start to reflect on all that you had worked on, the strength and grips that you let go. Feel accomplished. Begin to speak words of love to yourself. Compliment yourself. Express how much you love yourself. How much you mean to this world. What you deserve, and have conquered. Don’t sell yourself short, don’t hold back. Give it your all. Then, relax once more. No thought. Only sense. Reach out and connect to all of your senses. To the energies all around you. Lay back. Rest. And if you fall asleep, let it be so. Be free. Awaken anew.

Blessed Be ~*~

Full Moon in Virgo

Hello to all!
March’s Sap Moon is a time to herald the death of winter and embrace the rebirth of nature. The Earth feels alive again, at least here in California. The birds and animals know that Spring is around the corner. Neither is the cold bite of winter winds or nights, but rather a refreshing breeze and warming Sun. The land is vibrant with energy. 

The Moon in Virgo, the virgin maiden, is a time to celebrate the wild freedom that is within all of us. To once again feel that innocent joy and run with it. Virgo reminds us that we need to know who we are and what passions we seek. To perfect our craft and get creating! 

March’s moon and Virgo’s chamber hovering over us, is a powerhouse to get magick done. Any spells for luck, wealth, finances, healing, manifesting are ripe to do on this night. 

Here are a few simple but potent spells. 

                        Money Spray

Patchouli (herb or oil)

Brew the herb as a tea and let it sit for 10 minutes. As it steeps, chant over it:

Pat my pockets, Chou my money, but Li shall always return back to me. 

Strain the tea, and mix with half of Spring water. Or add 7, 10, or 11 drops of patchouli oil to a full bottle of Spring water. And place it in a spray bottle. Lay out all your money, credit/debit cards, taxes, etc and give it a good spritz. Not too much, wouldn’t want to soak your money! And repeat the chant from above. 

Anything you spend, shall return back to you. 

—-

                     Blue Moon Balm

Blend this oil during the full moon. Combine the following oils with either 4 ounces of unscented body lotion, or 2 ounces of olive oil, or sweet almond oil. 

  • 2 drops Chamomile oil
  • 2 drops Myrrh oil
  • 8 drops Rosemary oil
  • 8 drops Geranium oil

Shake the oils together and place in a corked jar. Sit quietly in a room lit only by 1 blue candle and rub the balm gently into your skin after a bath. 

Say aloud:

Work thy spell to heal and nurse. Blessed balm, banish my pain. Harm to none, and health to all. 

Use this balm if ever a dreary day arises, or if a dark mood is present. It heals both body and mind. 

—-

                     San Cipriano Oil

This oil is universal. It is said that when blended true to your Spirit, it can create miracles. But it must be blended with pure intentions and not for selfish needs. 

  • Cinnamon powder
  • Low John the conqueror
  • Orris root
  • Myrrh oil
  • Cedarwood oil
  • Cypress oil

Grind the herbs to a very fine powder and blend. Cover them with olive, sunflower, and/or jojoba oil. Add the oils as the last step. 

As it is being created, one must be a state of meditation. Your soul shall lead you in creating this miracle blend.

Enjoy and be blessed!

Snow Moon 2017

A great moon is upon tonight. The Moon in Leo will be having a lunar eclipse AND New Year’s comet passing it’s way through. An extraordinary night for magical delight! The Earth is vibrant with expectation.
The moon in Leo is a time to truly meet with your divine inner being. To face and understand your full potential in magick. You must face the fears that are holding you back, and break their chains. All the forces of the sky are with you on this, and it must be embraced. 

This Snow Moon is a time to focus on yourself, both mind and heart. Meditation and cleansing spells are ideal for this. Use this moon to smooth out unresolved issues, seeking closure, healing, creative inspiration, and honoring our wisdom. Send out love to all who need it, but most importantly, call for self love. 

Use the comet’s energy to  release any toxic ideas, habits, and suppressed emotions. 

During your Full Moon Ritual tonight, consider drinking or chewing on some Galangal Root. This will enchant your words, and empower your spells. And instill courage and strength. 

Below, are few simple Full Moon Spells that you could do. 

      To Manifest Good Energy To You
Take a walk in the woods, beach, or just relax in your balcony/backyard. Bring a stick, seven leaves from an ash or oak tree, several stones, and a white or green candle.  
With the stick, draw a circle on the ground and mark the directions with your leaves. Keeping three to hold. Place the stones at the center of the circle. Light the candle, and concentrate upon your connection to the Earth and how you honor that connection, and will honor it in your life. 

Then beginning towards to the East. Raise your stick and candle and say:

“Good luck rises for me in the East”

To the South:
“My love rises in the South”
To the West:
“My wishes rise in the West”
To the North:
“From the North, my dreams will come true”
Step out (preferably with your right foot first) from the circle, towards the North direction. Keep the leaves there for the night as an offering. Keep the three you held throughout the spell. Gather the stones before sunrise, or after a couple of hours of moonlight. And allow the candle to burn down.

                  Meditation Blessing 

Sit comfortably in front of your altar. Meditate and begin to think of all the blessings you have in your life. Breathe steadily. Deeply inhale and exhale for 20 minutes. Then when you are ready chant:
“Great Goddess, giver of all the fruits of this Earth. Of all the bounty, beauty, and well-being. Bless all who give and receive these gifts. I am made of sacred Earth, Purest water, Sacred fire, And wildest wind. Blessings upon me. Blessings upon thee, Mother Earth. And Sister Sky. 

So mote it be.”

»»»

                  Dragon’s Blood Bath 
This mix is to empower and cleanse the magical spirit within you. 
Ground equal amounts of:

  • Dragon’s Blood
  • Frankincense
  • Sea salt

Add the powder to a nice hot bath. Once submerged, open your senses and spirit in meditation. Envision a golden gate opening within you, and allow the energy of the bath to enter you.

May this Full Moon be delightfully enriching for you souls out there. Be sure to embrace the power that flows through you, especially tonight. And watch the magick happen. 

Blessed Be
