Metal Magick

I’ve got new bracelet/ring sets in at Enchanted Jewelry, beautifully handcrafted from alpaca silver, brass, and copper.  There are a variety of styles, but only five sets available at this time.  The rings average a size 8.

Copper

Energy: receptive (feminine)

Planet: Venus

Element: Water

Powers: direction energy; healing; luck; love; protection; money

During ancient times in Mesopotamia, copper was attributed to the Queen of Heaven, as well as to goddesses associated with the planet Venus (Aphrodite, Astarte, Ishtar). Copper is a conductor of electricity and is often used in magickal wands, with clear quartz crystals, to direct energy. Copper is worn by magickal practitioners, as well, for the purpose of directing energy during spell crafting and rituals. Copper has the ability to balance receptive (feminine) and projective (masculine) energies in the human body, thus facilitating healing. Copper is worn to aid in the relief of rheumatism and arthritis, but is worn for general healing and to divert illnesses of all kinds. It’s considered a lucky metal and is often worn in conjunction with gemstones geared to bring good fortune. Copper can be worn to attract a lover and is often paired with an emerald for this purpose.

Brass

Energy: projective (masculine)

Planet: Sun

Element: Fire

Powers: healing, money, protection

Brass can be used as a magickal substitution for gold, and is often used in money spells and rituals. Brass can be worn or used with stones to attract money and prosperity, such as aventurine and pyrite. It’s also used in ritual healing and can be worn to ease stomach cramps and nose bleeds. Brass is a protective metal, and can be worn to guard you against physical, emotional, or psychic attack. It can also be used for defensive magick, to send negative energy back to its source, and it can be charged and worn for this purpose.

Silver

Energy: receptive (feminine)

Planet: Moon

Element: Water

Powers: love, psychism, dreams, protection, travel (physical & astral), money

When worn, silver stimulates psychic awareness and personal abilities and is often worn during divination. You can wear silver to bed to enhance prophetic dreams and to aide in astral travel. It’s a protective talisman worn by travelers, particularly to those traveling on or over water. Silver is connected to the energy of the Moon and the Goddess (feminine divinity), and can be worn to aide in a Wiccan ritual known as “Drawing Down the Moon”.

Prehnite: My Stone of Choice

I was browsing through “The Crystal Healer: crystal prescriptions that will change your life forever” looking for a stone that would compliment the energies I’m dealing with in my life at the moment, a stone that would enhance any natural gifts and give me a leg up on any health issues, a stone that would enhance any chances for opportunities coming my way, and a stone that I would feel a natural connection with.  After browsing this book, my choice was “Prehnite”.

Prehnite’s energies include: the incredible energy of unconditional love; the enhancement of inner knowledge (intuition); it helps you with spiritual growth and the direction of your destiny; and helps you to recognize the truth.  Physically, prehnite assists in finding the root cause of an illness.  Healers use prehnite for issues of the kidneys and bladder, the thymus gland, shoulders, chest and lungs.

I managed to find a necklace (made with prehnite, jade, and hematite), a prehnite bracelet, and a prehnite ring on Ebay, each one from a different source, all three of them lovely and magickal.  The necklace carries additional energies because it is crafted with additional stones:

Jade:  just as prehnite enhances issues of the heart and unconditional love, so jade is another stone of the heart, traditionally used in the orient as an engagement stone; it’s a stone that enhances fidelity.  Physically, jade is used for healing lung and heart problems; the immune system; and nervous issues.

Hematite:  this stone is very grounding, strongly connected with the element of Earth; it enhances mental organization and rationality; calms nervous or flighty tendencies; enhances original thinking and logical thought processes; banishes negative energy and helps balance the body, mind, and spirit.  Physically, hematite is used to reduce fevers or treat heat exhaustion; to cure blood disorders, nervous issues, and insomnia; it helps to align the spine and minimize spinal issues.

May Updates: Heading into Summer

I’m happy to be back to business as usual, more or less, and I’ve resumed tarot readings, including personal private local readings. If you live in or near the Fremont, Nebraska, area, you can receive a personal reading with me by going to this page (click Here) and purchasing a private reading through the Paypal widget. After you’ve done that, call me to set up a date that will be convenient for both of us. You’ll find my number at this link.

*Note:  readings must be paid for in advance, before I’ll set up an appointment. I’ve had too many people who have either forgotten a scheduled reading, or who have been ‘no-shows’. This wastes both my time and my gas.

I finally got the new “Steampunk Bleu” jewelry collection up at my website, click  Here.  This collection includes original designs from “Creations by Isabella”.  She’s worked for months designing necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, all with the popular ‘steampunk’ theme; and this jewelry was literally selling as I’m putting it up– two pieces have already sold, so I suggest you take a look soon if you’re interested.

 

I’ve had so many requests for so long for magnetic healing bracelets, and I finally found a decent vendor for these items.  There are two different styles of hematite magnetic enchanted bracelets.  There are a variety of colors (accent beads) and a variety of enchantments; however, there are a limited number of bracelets. When you purchase one of these bracelets, be sure to let me know which color of accent bead you want, and you also get to choose what kind of enchantment you desire from the enchantments offered. ( If you have a special magickal need, let me know and I’ll see what I can do for you to personalize the enchantment.) …Click  Here.

 

I’m pleased to say that my book, “The Gray Witch’s Grimoire”, is doing well and seems to be hitting a soft spot with a lot of gray witches and solitary witches out there.  Thank you to everyone who’s sent me personal messages.  I may not have the time to answer every email coming in, but I read them all!  If you like this book, please be sure to click the ‘Like’ button at Amazon.  If you’ve read this book and you have something to say about it, you can submit a review at the Amazon page included in the link above.  I appreciate all of the input I’ve received, it’s the most rewarding part of writing, to know that you’ve made a ‘magickal’ connection with so many people on so many levels.

The following is an excerpt from the introduction to “Spells” in “A Gray Witch’s Grimoire”:

“…The spells listed here are all taken directly from my own Book of Shadows. I’ve carefully read through and decided upon a number of spells for a variety of intentions. I’ve chosen spells which have the spirit of the gray witch about them and that will fit with the energy of this book. Some of these spells are inspired by age-old traditions and others were birthed from my own imagination, desires, and intentions.

For those of you who don’t have the heart of the gray witch, some of these spells might make you cringe; but you’ll read transfixed, nevertheless, for the pull of the wild witch is strong within us all. Some of you have just tamed her, and others have allowed her to fly free.”

Fall Craft & New-Age Boutique

We’re going to be busy today setting up for our Boutique Yardsale that will run Friday 10am-7pm/Saturday 10am-3pm, at 2532 Nebraska Ave. (Washington Heights) here in Fremont, NE.  We have a variety of metaphysical items available, as well as fall decor, country crafts, & glass art.  I’ll also be giving tarot readings.  If you’re in the area– stop by!

 

The Garden Boutique

I went solo this past Saturday and sat up a yardsale which I dubbed, The Garden Boutique. I’ve done this several times with a good friend, setting up tables filled with metaphysical supplies to delight the stoutest pagan: pendulums, magickal oils and potions, spell candles, kits and bags filled with supplies to bless a home or to cast a spell, as well as enchanted jewelry, arts & crafts, and other unique creations that defy description. This time I had only my girls to help watch tables and merchandise while I gave tarot readings and balanced chakras. It was a bit of a juggle sometimes, but we managed.

We live in a rather ‘out-of-the-way’ location, and I’m never sure how our turnout will be at these events, since we’re a bit difficult for some people to find. But contrary to my expectations, we had a great day which included an afternoon rush and a few return visitors. And the girls and I noticed that this time we were not hounded by Christians trying to convince us that we were headed down an evil path. Our customers were politely curious, inquisitive, and some even eager to learn, asking questions and getting up close and personal with the poppets and pendulums.

I was up at 5am, just as I had planned, and was out in the garage digging out tables, shelves, and chairs. However, when I actually started getting things arranged I realized– wait a minute, it’s too dark. And it sure was, pitch dark. Even with the garage lights on, it was too dark to stock the shelves. With daylight came some soft showers with cool refreshing temperatures. Since there was no wind at this time, I dodged the rain by placing all the tables and merchandise beneath the overhang on our house.

This is a family endeavor and everyone likes to create something to add to the inventory. My eleven-year-old daughter spent the day before the sale making bags with fabric paint, glue, and glitter. Several days ago, she had spent just as much time painting large clear stones to create pretty magnets. It was fun watching her during the creative process, head bent low over her work, quiet and intent.

My 24-year-old daughter is the ‘Isabella’ in “Creations by Isabella”. She’s a graphic artist, tattoo artist, and talented jewelry maker. She added some of her creations to our Garden Boutique. I’m very excited for her and her atistic career– She will be selling her designs for stamps and scrapbooking paper to a national company. As soon as I’m allowed to post more information, I will.

I stocked the table and shelves with a variety of items from my website, The Witch’s Corner. Setting up these boutique yardsales is actually a lot of fun, no matter how many trips in and out, up and down the stairs it takes. (Tearing it all down is another matter!)

I usually try to have a few copies of my book on hand, along with plenty of business cards, and it’s always fun to watch people explore this table. It’s a satisfying feeling to send someone on their way with a copy of my book in their hand.

Tarot: A Witch’s Journey

We have a covered back porch with a partial west wall, an east wall of bamboo blinds, and our south yard is blocked by the trees, so this is a pretty private area, and this is where I sat up my massage table and a powerful crystal grid to do Chakra Balancing. It was perfect. I had a water fountain running back here. It was peaceful, protected, and inviting.

The opposite end of the back porch was reserved for tarot readings…I just had to shoo sleeping kitties away!

I always have a small table set up for my CD player and some favorite new-age music. And I always have a small notepad and pen available. Customers are invited to add a prayer request or wish to the bowl. We have a little tradition at the end of our boutique yardsales– after everything is put away, I’ll bring out my big black cauldron, and we’ll burn these requests in a sacred flame.

This is the perfect way to end the day.

Blessed Be,
Amythyst Raine

Tuesday: Magick & Musings

I’ve been busy updating my website, particularly the Enchanted Jewelry page– make that ‘pages’ now. Enchanted Jewelry has grown to the point that the main page is very full and some people might find it hard to load on their computer. Don’t worry, the main page is still there, intact, but I’ve added individual pages that carry specific items:

Rings

Necklaces & Pendents

Earrings

Bracelets

There’s also been another change at my online shops this summer:

I will no longer be selling my merchandise internationally. Thank you to all my international customers for your support and enthusiasm. I’ve shipped items to Europe, Great Britain, Australia, Africa, and New Zealand, and it was always thrilling to know that my creations were going round the world.

I’ve stopped international sales just because, as a small cottage industry, I can’t afford the exhorbitant cost of international postage, and passing this cost on to my customers just didn’t seem fair.

The newest item up is Alpaca Silver Bracelets, enchanted, bedazzled, and loaded with magickal energy, ready to go:

You’ll find an assortment of these bracelets in a variety of colors and a slew of spells & enchantements.

Today’s Goddess

Minerva

She is the virgin goddess of wisdom, knowledge and commerce. Minvera is the ultimate original feminist, dependent on no one but herself. She never took a mate, but followed her path in the solitary shadows, and it’s in this manner that we often discover ourselves and our full potential. She is a healing goddess, the patroness of doctors and nurses. As an inventor and alchemist, Minerva is attributed with the creation of numbers, muscial instruments, medicines, and machinery.

Today’s Tarot Card

Six of Wands

The six of wands is a card that smacks of victory, the victorious, acclaim, admiration and adulation, achievement, and full-blown in-your-face success. At its best it tells me that the querent has risen to the challenge of meeting goals and ambitions. At its worst—reversed, the six of wands warns me of an expanded ego, pompousness, conceit, and sometimes an obstinate nature. The reversed six of wands shows failure, blocked paths to success, apathy, and a lack of motivation.

Sometimes the character on this card may view himself or herself in any of these positive/negative lights, or this may be how he/she is viewed by others.

When this card pops up in a reading, it may foretell of great potential in a querent and in their life, or a total lack of talent/drive/ambition needed to complete a project-in-progress. The most positive thing about a reversed minor Arcana card is that it can be turned around—it will be totally up to the querent.

Today’s Spell

Quitting Powder

(Also known as Boss Fix Powder)

This Hoodoo formula could be called “Love Fix Powder”. It allegedly forces someone to quit bothering you and leave you alone, halting unwanted romantic and sexual advances. As a bonus, it may also be used to stop any attempts at placing a hex on you.

1. Blend and powder the following ingredients:

ground cinnamon

ground nutmeg

powdered newsprint– Preferably from the target’s favorite publication or even a newspaper that has been in their possession

tobacco taken from a cigarette– ideally obtained from that person, but their favorite brand would be a good second choice.

2. Use the resulting powder in any of the following ways:

Sprinkle it where your target is sure to sit on it or step over it.

Sprinkle it to create a boundary of safety for yourself.

Carry it in a mojo bag as a protective talisman.

You’ll find plenty of free spells at my website to fit a wide array of situations and circumstances to meet your needs:

Dreams, Magickal Formularia, & Fairie Realms

I have a new dream to add to my journal, it’s incomplete, one scene out of an entire adventure, most of which can’t be remembered, but it’s visually memorable:  An Indian (Native American) village is burning.  I don’t see the flames, but the smoke is thick and curling, sulfurous, twisting through the air like dirty gray clouds.   I feel appalled, and yet can do nothing but watch, from whatever invisible perch I’m allowed to view this scene from. 

And watch I do, though as an unseen outsider watching a disjointed scene develop.  Occasionally the clouds of smoke will part, and I can see the steep sides of a teepee constructed from buffalo hide.  Other times the thick smoke separates to reveal the wall of a modern home…and this is shocking and unexpected.

And that’s the extent of what I remember, though I know that there was a much broader scenario, lost now in my sub-conscious.

 Tarot Card of the Day
(Deck:  Handle)

White Buffalo woman
Daugther of Stones in the West
Princess of Stone

I feel a theme here, unintentional, yet somehow connected to the scheme of things.

From this card, I get…strength; individualism; great effort under duress; quiet fortitude; power that’s understated.  Also, I sense a grounding to Earth, to the Mother Goddess, creativity, and manifestation into the physical realm. 

 

http://ladyamythyst.webs.com/tarotreadings.htm

Night before last we had heavy rains here in Nebraska, which resulted in a flooded basement for us.  This sounds awful, and it certainly wasn’t fun, but it’s been worse.  This time the floor was completely soaked the length of the room and all the saturated area rugs had to be drug outside.  We’ve had flooding before that’s left us with ankle deep water downstairs, so I’m not going to complain about this episode.  It was actually fairly easy to get cleaned up.

I took a picture of the ditch ahead of our house about mid-morning the day after the rain.  On the night of the storm, this ditch was filled to the brim with water.  As you can see, it had already gone down quite a bit.

Welcome to Hedgewytch Hollow:

You can see two of our feeding stations here, at either end of the front yard.  These will become much more interesting and ‘wild’ looking as the season progresses because we allow the seeds from the birdfood to sprout and grow beneath and around the feeding stations.  These plants include milo and towering sunflowers.

The center of our front lawn remains uncut.  My husband mows around them, creating a sort of ‘wild island’, where a gorgeous bed of clover is allowed to grow, along with grass, dandelions, and my beautiful wild violets.  There are also large stones in there– I mean ‘large’ stones– that he brought back from Iowa, and a barrel containing columbine and marigolds, along with a statuette of a white sow (for the goddess, Cerridwen), and a black cauldron in which I plant something different each year– this year, it’s marigolds.

So funny– just last week there was a man going door to door in our neighborhood trying to drum up business for a local lawn service.  I answer my door, and he points to this ‘wild’ area in our front lawn and says, “I see you have a few ‘trouble spots’ there.”  I told him that we certainly don’t have any ‘trouble spots’, and that stretch of lawn is just exactly the way I want it.  He looked stunned.

We allow plantain to grow throughout our yard, wherever it may have a hankerin’ to do so; and this plant seems to favor a large area of our front lawn.  Not only is plantain edible, a nice wild green you can add to your salads or cook up and eat with a little butter and salt and pepper; but it has magickal properties as well.

I use plantain to create mojo bags for safe travel, which we keep in our vehicles.  In my old Suburban– the ‘She-Sub’– is a black bag containing plantain, calamus root, a pinch of sea salt, and a stone of tiger’s eye. 

For plantain the planet is Venus; the element Earth; the energy feminine (receptive); and the magickal energies are geared towards healing, strength, and protection.

This is the columbine that’s growing in my barrel in the center of our uncut area of lawn.  It seems to like this spot.  I only wish that it’s blooms lasted longer through the season; I think they are so beautiful.  Columbine also has magickal purposes, but if you use it, you should be aware that the seeds to this plant are poisonous.

For columbine the energy is feminine; the planet is Venus; the element is Water; and its magickal energies include courage and love.

When we first moved here, fifteen years ago, there was a huge gorgeous cotton wood tree in the front yard, on the east side of the house.  It faithfully shaded my daughter’s bedroom window throughout three seasons of the year.  In the autumn we were treated to a beautiful golden display of large leaves that made the most magickal sound when the wind moved through it.  But alas, the tree eventually died, and we had to have it cut down for fear of the brittle tree damaging the neighbor’s house, should it go down in a windstorm.


I told them to leave the tall stump, and here it is, yet today, wearing a garland of virginia creeper, standing as the centerpiece in another wild garden spot.  This area, towards the back of the front lawn and to the east of the house, is overrun with virgina creeper, as well as day lillies, dahlias, purple cone flowers, and a baby lilac bush, as well as other foliage that decides to make this magickal spot its home.

I have a magick wand made from a twig saved from the majestic old cotton wood tree.  It’s served me well, as an old friend, which of course, it is.

The growing season is just getting under way in our area, so this space has just begun to fill itself in with this year’s growth.  I took the bottom part of the metal bunkbed I turned into a bird feeding station, and I put it here, using it as a trellis, in anticipation that the virginia creeper will cover it by mid-June.

 I have two potted plants hanging from the bunkbed birdfeeder in the front yard.  One of them is pansies, which remind me of my daughter, Anne.  When she was a little girl, I called her ‘Annsie Pansie’.

 The planet for pansies is Saturn; it’s energy feminine (receptive); the element is Water; and the magickal energies include:  love, rain magick, and divination.  It’s said that if you carry this plant upon your person, you will draw love to you.

 

 

The other potted plant is violas.  This plant reminds me of springtime in South Dakota, knowing that a long summer was just around the corner; my grandmother’s house; paved walkways; morning sunshine; and cold dew.  Childhood memories.

 

 This is clover that covers much of the ‘wild area’ in the front lawn.  I took this photo the morning after the rain storm, and as you can see, raindrops still sit upon it. 

This clover holds an attraction for the wild things.  I was coming out of the kitchen one day, and there were my cats– Salem & Pixie– frozen in awe, watching something out of the glass on our front door.  I looked to see what was holding their attention, and sitting in our clover patch, watching the cats with just as much curiosity, was a very large rabbit, one of the largest I’ve ever seen.

We’ve spotted this rabbit in the clover patch now and then, but each time I run for the camera, I come back to find it has disappeared.  I’m beginning to think, half whimsically and half seriously, that this rabbit is not just any ordinary old rabbit, but perhaps a magickal creature.

The cat is Baby (aka Duchess), sitting on one of the large rocks in the front yard.  This photo was taken the night of the thunderstorm, during the evening, before the storm hit.  This photo is full of orbs; not only is there a large one on the barrel, the sky is full of them.

This is a photo of my latest aquisition– a goddess ring.  It’s sterling silver, citrine, blue topaz, and the goddess’s face is carved from bovine bone.  And no, this one is not for sale– it’s a keeper!

 

Jewelry is my weakness, particularly rings– no idea why– and my daughters know that someday it will be passed on to them.

 

The energies for this ring will include:

Citrine…the energy is projective (male); the planet is the Sun; the element Fire; and the magickal energies protction and psychism.

 Topaz…the energy is projective (male); the planet is the Sun; the element Fire; and the magickal energies include protection, healing, money, and love.

Wytchy Chit-Chat: Books n’ Pics n’ Stuff

Right now I’m reading a book by Sherrie Dillard,

“Discover Your Psychic Type:
Developing and Using Your Natural Intuition”

Discover Your Psychic Type: Developing and Using Your Natural Intuition

click  Here

So far, I love the book.  Ms. Dillard has all of the psychic types nailed down pat, making them easily identifiable:  the emotional intuitive, the mental intuitive, the physical intuitive, and the spiritual intuitive.  She’s included questions, guided meditations, and exercises in order for the reader to identify what kind of psychic they are and to build on those skills.  She also includes personal stories and anecdotes that add interest and personalization to the psychic and the process.

Ms. Dillard says, “Our intuitive development can help us to stay connected to the deeper meaning of what occurs in our lives.”

Tarot Special!

For an undetermined period of time, I’m offering a three-card tarot reading at $20.00.  For more information, or to purchase a reading, follow this link:

I grow a lot of my own herbs and dry them in my kitchen.  These herbs are used for my own personal magickal purposes, as well as in the oils and spell bags that I create for Wytchy Wares.  My list has grown to include mint, sage, lavender, rose, lilac, lemon balm, thistle, catnip, wormwood, and goldenrod.  I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so that I can replant many of the herbs that are annuals in our location– especially rosemary and lavender.

After the herbs are clipped from the garden, the stems are tied together and they’re turned upside down and tacked to the kitchen ceiling to dry.  From there, it’s a short journey into one of many magickal pots and jars found all over our house.

Magick for the Day

Saturday…Planet/Saturn:  ambition, structure, realism, self-preservation (this can get sticky, falling within gray magick), business, self-control, the dark side, retribution/revenge, the untamed spiritual side; Colors/black, gray, deep navy blue; Herbs/black poppy seeds, myrrh, pepper, wormwood, henbane, hellebore, hemlock, witch grass; Number/8; Letters/H, Q, Z; Stones/apache tear, obsidian, onyx, tourmaline (black), hematite, jet

Save Saturday as the day to pull magickal punches where they’re needed, whether someone or something needs banishing or just a hard slap on the wrist.  Straighten out the gossip, zip the liar’s lips, knock jealousy out the window, get the bad guy– track him down with your magickal guns.  Protection magick is a highpoint for this day and these correspondences.  For me the magickal cry for Saturday is, "Batten down the hatches and get out of my way if you’re smart."  Saturday wreaks of no nonsense magick, isn’t for the sissies, and inspires good behavior by using some magickal muscle.

Tarot card of the day:
Knight of Cups

This knight heralds romantic activities and, with the influence of Saturn, this will be more like Heathcliffe and Catherine– without the pristine happy endings of a Disney fairytale.  The sex will be wild, unbridled, and somewhat dangerous; the fights will be rampaging with make-up sex that will take your breath away.  Romantic relationships begun at this point will be so up and down, so tumultuous, that it may not be intended to last forever– the intensity would be too much.  Take what you will from this encounter, learn and grow, enjoy the good parts, survive the bad…and move on to calmer waters, smoother encounters.

Magick for the Day

Thursday…the planet is Jupiter, the energy is geared for expansion and growth.  Do magick today for legal matters, money/financial issues, magick to promote growth on all levels– material, spiritual, physical:  color- white for matters of the spirit, green for money and the physical; herbs- cinnamon, cinquefoil, musk, nutmeg, sage; number- 3; letters- C,L,U.

Tarot Card of the Day…Three of Pentacles  The emphasis for today is on work/employment.  Finish up projects that are incomplete, explore new avenues and possibilities, be very careful about office gossip– something you say in confidence may not be kept private, watch out for ‘group mentality’, and don’t be afraid to step out of the crowd and display individuality– your creativity will be rewarded.

The following slide-show are new items that have recently been added to my online shops.  You’ll find these, as well as other items, at:

April– Health & Healing, Crystal Therapy, Spells & More

The April newsletter is up and out

at The Witch’s Corner

 

I’ve added a new section this month:

 

Crystal Therapy

 

I’ve started a new section in our newsletter this month, and I hope to expand on this topic.  In future issues we’ll look at how to make tinctures from crystals for therapeutical use– both direct and indirect tinctures, and we’ll look at other ways to use the energy of crystals for healing.  We’ll also take a look each month at what crystals may work for which ailments.

 

This month we’re going to take a look at five stones—Ocean Jasper, Citrine, Garnet, Peridot, and Aquamarine.

 

Herbs


This topic this month is health and healing, and you’ll find herbs listed, not only for healing, but also to maintain health.

 

Spells of the Month

 

The need for healing spells includes all members of the family and this means our pets, too.  So you’ll find a St. Benedict’s Healing Spell for Animals.  The second healing spell connects our body ands its functions to astrological correspondences.  The second spell will teach you how to make astrological healing waters using these correspondences.

 

Kitchen Wytchery

 

In keeping with our theme of health and healing, you’ll find a list of foods that are conducive to healing, along with a ‘healing’ recipe.

 

Tarot Tips

 

If you haven’t already heard, beginning April 1 I’ll be giving live telephone readings.  You’ll find more information on this topic in the newsletter.

 

Also—you’ll find links to merchandise for Wytchy Wares, Creations by Isabella, and Enchanted Jewelry with some updates listed and new things coming up that you might want to watch for.

New Spells/Items Up at Enchanted Jewelry

New Items!

The following items, plus much more, can be found at:

http://ladyamythyst.webs.com/enchantedjewelry.htm 

The following rings come from India.  They are silvertone and adjustable.  The stones are genuine, huge, and heavy…not to mention gorgeous.  I’ve added several of these pieces to my own collection.

brown agate

Hathor’s Myrrh Healing Spell

1agatering1.jpg picture by witch_of_endore

 Agates come in a multitude of colors, each of which retains its own magickal connections and energy.  Brown agates were worn by warriors for victory in battles, used in modern times for business success in any undertaking, and was once used to guard against the evil eye, disease, bad luck, etc.  It is also worn as a talisman for prosperity.

This agate’s energy is projective (male), its element is Fire, planet– Mercury (generally speaking, for agates), and its magicakal energies include strength, courage, longevity, gardening, love, healing, and protection.

To this beautiful piece I’ve added Hathor’s Myrrh Healing Spell to intensify the healing energy of this stone.  Hathor, the mother of Horus, was revered in ancient Egypt as the goddess of love, motherhood, joy, music, dance; and also as the goddess who helped women in childbirth. 

Among other titles, Hathor was called "The Lady of Myrrh".  Her temples were healing centers.  The enchantment placed upon this ring petitions Hathor directly for healing energy

honey jasper

Jezebel Seduction Spell 

1honeyjasperring1.jpg picture by witch_of_endore

This gorgeous piece of red jasper, also called ‘honey jasper’, was used in ancient times to guard against fevers and poisoning.  The energy of red jasper is projective (male); its planet is Mars– nice and fiery, to promote passion; and its element is Fire– of course!   It’s a protective stone that’s often used in defensive magicks, is carried or worn for health and healing, and is worn by women to promote beauty and grace…and this is the energy that I chose to enhance with a Jezebel Seduction Spell. 

The energy of Jezebel is called upon to make your beauty and charms irresistible to the one you desire.

  Using herbs and roots in the hoodoo tradition, I empowered this beautiful piece with the quivering enticements of the ancient seductress.  This gorgeous ring is dripping with Jezebel’s sensual charms and feminine magnetism. And now you can possess the sexual mystique that will draw lovers helplessly under your spell.

peridot earrings– .925 silver–
posts (very dainty)– four leaf clover design

Good Luck Spell

1peridotearrings1.jpg picture by witch_of_endore

Peridot is a stone that contains so much magickal energy– it was used in ancient times to guard against enchantments, nightmares, illusions, and the evil eye.  It’s worn or carried for general healing purposes, especially effective for insect bites & liver ailments; to promote sleep, attract love, calm tempers, and to relieve depression.  It was also used in wealth and prosperity magick.

Peridot’s energy is receptive (feminine), its planet Venus, and it’s element Earth.

I decided to take advantage of the obvious connection to the Irish tradition of the four leaf clover.  To these beautiful earrings, I have cast a Good Luck Spell, using roots and herbs from the hoodoo tradition.  These earrings are charged with the power to bring the wearer good fortune in all areas of life, including  good luck in financial matters, matters of the heart, and matters of health and well-being.

Cats n’ Spells and Other Marvelous Things

The March newsletter from The Witch’s Corner is up and out:

This month the theme is cats, and the content includes cat magicks, cat facts, spells using cat magick, and a slide-show of our own beautiful felines.  You’ll find a tarot special for March on the Twelve Card Spread, and a new item up at Wytchy Wares– Witches’ Bottles…

 Witches’ Bottles are a popular old magick.  They are, in essence, a spell sealed within a glass container.  In order to bring this magick into fruition, you can do several things with the bottles– some may be buried on your property, depending upon what kind of spell is involved; they can be sat in a conspicuous spot inside your house, like by the front door, and given a gentle little ‘shake’ every now and then to keep the energy alive; or they can be hidden in your home, in a secret spot, so only you know that magick is afoot.

There is also a preview of new merchandise coming to Enchanted Jewelry and Creations by Isabella.  The recipe this month involves a fruit connected to the goddess Freya– who is, of course, connected to cats!

You don’t think Witches have a sense of humor?  I found a youtube video that will prove otherwise.  It’s one of our favorites and is a popular video on Witches’ myspace pages and other sites.

Baubles n’ Spells n’ Magickal Things

 
I’ve been at it again, casting enchantments on some new wytchy bling and trying to pry certain pieces that I’ve fallen in love with out of my hot little hands so that I can actually part with them!

I absolutely love the azurite, and I’m afraid that I’m going to have to find a ring or pendent for myself, as the energy from this stone is wonderful– reminds me very much of lapis.  I broke down and procured a peridot for myself…I couldn’t resist, didn’t have any, and green is my favorite color.  Moonstone– I have several pieces of personal jewelry in moonstone, and I believe this is one of the most powerful stones for women.

Anyway…There are some new pieces up at Enchanted Jewelry, and with it are some new enchantments and some previous spells that have been requested.

Enjoy!

Azurite ring– 18X13 mm–
.925 silver– size 8– filligree design

 Third Eye Spell

AzuriteRing1.jpg picture by witch_of_endore

Azurite is a beautiful, deep blue stone, long used in magic to increase psychic powers.  Wear this ring to bed at night to experience prophetic dreams, wear it when doing any divination work, or wear it simply to open that part of your sub-conscious mind that we so often ignore.  Azurite can also be used in scrying, using the stone itself, as well as in healing magicks.  Its energy is receptive (feminine), its planet Venus.  The element associated with azurite is water.

To this exquisitely handcrafted azurite ring, already instilled naturally with so much psychic potential, I’ve cast a Third Eye Spell to enhance and increase your psychic awareness, to stimulate and encourage clairvoyance, clairsentience, and clairaudience.  This magickal piece of enchanted jewelry is perfect to open the mystical third eye of the average person, or to enhance the abilities of psychic tarot readers, mediums, and clairvoyants.

Dragonclaw Faceted Peridot ring–  .925 silver–
size 8–

 Spell of Prosperity

peridotring6.jpg picture by witch_of_endore

Peridot was used by the ancients as a protective amulet to guard against the evil eye.  It was worn or carried for general healing purposes, and was reputed to promote healing of insect bites and to help in liver ailments.  If worn to bed it also promotes sleep and calms the nervous system.  Ancient Romans wore peridot to relieve depression.

Peridot’s energy is receptive (feminine), its planet Venus, and its element Earth. 

This beautiful green stone is also used to attract wealth and prosperity, and that’s the enchantment that I’ve cast upon this piece– that it may bring money and necessary funds to the wearer, that your purse never runs empty and your plate always be full.

moonstone earrings– .925 silver– post design, very dainty– 3/4"

Wedjat Eye Enchantment

MoonstoneEarrings4.jpg picture by witch_of_endore

These charming earrings are very dainty, the kind of earrings you can put in and wear comfortably without having to remove them for long periods of time.

To these earrings I’ve added a Wejat Eye Enchantment…The Wedjat Eye is the healed eye of the Egyptian god Horus, said in ancient mythologies to represent the powers of the moon.  It has long been used in spells as a protective charm, and this image was used in the spell cast upon these earrings to invoke the protective powers of Horus.  In this spell the power was raised to protect against evil from others, be that evil envy, wishing ill, or other ill feeling. 

 Moonstone is a blue, white, or pink feldspar and has long been connected to the moon, the Goddess,  and magick. Moonstone’s energy is receptive; it’s planet the Moon.  It corresponds to the element of Water, and particularly to the deities– Diana, Selene, Isis, and all lunar goddesses.
