A Special Enchantment

I’ve blessed and enchanted a special piece of jewelry that’s going up at The Witch’s Corner.  I will be offering newly enchanted pieces from time to time, blessed and empowered for a variety of intentions, on the Home Page of my website.  Know that any piece of jewelry you buy at The Witch’s Corner can be blessed and empowered to suit your special request.  I’d prefer to sell a piece to an individual and then enchant it especially for their needs, rather than randomly bless and enchant my jewelry.  I hope this makes sense.

Tarot Flirts with Astrology ~ Your Cards for Today

Aquarius ~ 10/Swords (reversed)

There’s nothing worse than being nailed to the wall, other than being pinned down and cornered to do something you were hoping to get out of, or being called out on the rug to explain yourself or your actions– and this last one is going to be a spine tingling adrenalin rush experience for some of you Aquarians.  This is always a difficult card when it rears it’s ugly head, and for many of you, you didn’t see this coming (until now).  The best thing about this card is that it’s reversed.  Many of you are going to claw your way out of an unpleasant confrontation, or situation, and find solid footing once more.  Kiss the ground when you get there, and make sure this doesn’t happen again, do what you have to do, change what you have to change.

Capricorn ~ King/Swords (reversed)

Something is left unsaid.  Communication is not happening, and it has to be resolved before it’s too late.  There are reasons and ways in which things that need to be said, may never be heard.  Make sure you have no regrets.  Don’t be afraid of sounding silly, don’t be afraid to face disagreement, don’t be afraid to be wrong, don’t gloat if you are right.  The words lay like a choking parcel of food caught in the throat.  Don’t swallow them.  Open your mouth and set them free, along with your conscience, your soul, and your peace of mind.

Pisces ~ 3/Swords

Some of you may face heartbreak or disappointment.  Lessons are learned, wounds will heal.  Life will pick you back up and carry you forward on your path, mercilessly marching you towards new horizons and experiences and awakenings.  What we learn from heartbreak, pain, and sorrow is that it’s not the end, but only a pivotal point on our journey.  Be strong, ride the waves, wait out the storm.  Calm seas and peace await once the clouds have parted.

Aries ~ The Tower

Many of you are going to be called upon to endure great changes and disruptions in your life.  For some it may be connected to relationships and family, for others it could be jobs and careers, and for still others it will be something unique to you and your personal experience, earth-shattering, life-changing.  Oh, how we fight major life transitions, kicking and screaming our way through the storm, even when we know that things will be better when we reach the other side.  Many of you Aries will be put to the test, stretched beyond your limits, tried by fire, tempered like steel.  This is where you find out how strong you really are.

Taurus ~ Temperance (reversed)

This card is all about balance in our lives, and since it’s standing on it’s head for you, there’s a problem in this area.  Many of you may find yourselves feeling up in the air, either overwhelmed with work, or not getting enough hours; some of you may be experiencing unexpected upsets with health issues, which so often kicks our lives out of balance on a variety of levels.  You’re like a cat right now, Taurus, in free-fall.  You’re going to have to figure out what you have to do to turn yourself around so that you land on your feet.

Gemini ~ Knight/Cups (reversed)

For some Gemini, the Knight-in-Shining Armor fairytale is going to remain a myth.  For some of you this may mean that you have unrealistic expectations, and if you don’t lower the bar to a more human level, no one is going to pass the test, no one is going to be quite good enough.  Developing a successful relationship with someone means that you learn to accept their very human flaws (This doesn’t mean that we “settle” for losers, which is the flip side of this coin.).  It means that human beings aren’t perfect, and everyone has their own little quirks; and if we meet someone and fall in love, you learn to accept the WHOLE person, quirks included.

Cancer ~ 7/Cups (reversed)

Many of you Cancers will be making very important decisions during this period, and some of you will not be facing all the facts and may even be colorizing your choices and decisions with rosy glasses and less than a solid grip on reality.  Be sure to honestly look at all the questions in order to find all the answers.  Study the choices and brutally asses whether you can make them work in the real world.  In order to have a successful game plan, you have to have a logical and realistic course of action.  Now, go for it, Cancer!

Leo ~ 4/Pentacles (reversed)

Many of you Leos may have issues coming up that you’ll find rather challenging during this period, and some of these issues will involve relinquishing control (a horror scenario for strong and independent Leo).  You may also be faced with unexpected financial circumstances that require substantial payments, which means breaking into savings, which means parting with your dearly beloved and precious golden coins.  I know, Leo, you lovingly tend your growing nest egg and having to slice it open and remove a chunk is going to be difficult and unpleasant.  Never fear, once this issue is resolved, life will resume as before.

Virgo ~ The Moon (reversed)

You will find yourself surrounded by deception.  Either someone isn’t being honest with you, or you are not being honest with yourself.  Some Virgos might feel that they’ve entered the twilight zone.  There’s a very thin line between reality and fantasy, and when you find yourself in an extremely stressful unpleasant situation, it can make recognizing this line very difficult, which can make it dangerous on a variety of levels.  During this time, seek out individuals, spiritual practices, or professionals to help you find the answers you need.  It’s not a sign of weakness to seek help making right decisions, or getting through traumatic or challenging circumstances.

Libra ~ Princess/Pentacles

Messages and answers to financial issues will be forthcoming in a very timely manner.  Some of you Libras will discover previously unknown facts, or knowledge, that will benefit upcoming decisions and will also shed light on circumstances, or people, surrounding you.  Knowledge is power, the more you have, the stronger you’ll be.  There’s s solitary flair about many of you Libras, intent on personal self-discovery, with a renewed interest in old and unfinished projects.  Make your own kind of magic during this period.

Scorpio ~ 6/Pentacles

“The more the merrier” will be your mantra at this time, Scorpio.  Where before there was not enough, now you will have a surplus.  However, don’t let your guard down, don’t waste precious time or opportunities that come your way.  Continue this forward progression with right action, solid common sense, determination, and a strong work ethic.  It’s time for many Scorpios to climb the ladder to success.  We so often talk about setting goals, but we so seldom stop and relish the accomplishment of meeting those goals.  Do this, Scorpio.

Sagittarius ~ Knight/Pentacles

For some of you Sagittarians bouncing merrily through this year, you’re going to find yourself stopped short by the need for quiet practicality.  Solid common sense, thorough and slow thought processes to work through an issue, are going to assure your happiness continues through 2017.   Don’t be rushed into making any decisions.  Remember, the show can’t go on until you say it does.  The wonderful grounding aspect of this Knight will bode you well, reconnecting you to Earth energy and the solidity you need at this time.

Nice People Do Gray Magick

It’s time to pull this little gem from the pages of my Big Black Book.  Not for me, mind you, at the moment, but for a friend who is in need of this magick.  There is nothing worse, nothing more vile, nothing more evil or black, than a gossip.  My definition of this Cretan:  someone who deliberately makes up stories and information about someone that will harm their reputation, their business, their personal relationships, or any other aspect of their life.  Yes, I’ve used these spells myself, back in the day, when they were needed.  Yes, they work; they certainly did for me.  And yes, I’m a nice person, dammit, and nice people have a right to defend themselves, especially with sneaky back-stabbing liars and gossips.  Magick may be the only defense you have.

So I’m blowing the dust off these delicious binding spells and posting them here for my friend and anyone else in need ~

Binding a Gossip

Most of you reading this has, at one time or another, been the victim of malicious and false rumors, innuendos, or flat out bald face lies. This phenomena used to be contained to the narrow crowded hallways of junior and senior high schools, the quiet corridors of office buildings, the loud backrooms of break-rooms, local neighborhood cafes and bars…etc. With the advent of the internet, instant communication, and access that was previously unheard of, this interesting little social oddity is becoming more prevalent than ever, easier to manipulate, to spread, and much more destructive because of the wider audience and the hit and run methods available to anyone with a computer, or cell phone. However, even in the 21st century, gossip still travels the old fashioned way: by word of mouth.

And what makes gossip so popular is our naïve desire to believe what we hear, regardless of the source, whether facts check out, whether it makes sense, or even whether it is believable– the more fantastic and incredible the story, in fact, the quicker we are to accept it, or to eagerly pass it along.

There may not be much the mundane victim of gossip can do about it, other than an expensive and time consuming lawsuit perhaps, if the perpetrator of this brouhaha is sullying a public reputation, damaging a business, or causing serious complications in the victim’s life.

But there is something a Witch can do about a gossip.  She can bind the mouth of the one who is spreading untruths & fantastic stories. She can tie their tongue and still their voice. She can throw the negative energy they are generating back upon the perpetrator, where it will fester and putrefy, to destroy the hooligan from the inside out.

A Binding:

I have used the following spells personally, and I can tell you that they worked for me, often in explosive and unpredictable ways which left me open-mouthed and in awe of this magick. Karma has a way of stepping in to handle any injustice of life, and I have no qualms about stepping into the shadows to grab the light and use this energy to kick-ass. This is one of the benefits of being a gray witch.

If you have the magickal ability, control of your energies, determination and purpose, and if you’ve just plain had enough…you’ll find these spells to be just what you need.

For serious situations, use all three of these methods in tandem:

The Mirror:

Purchase a small hand mirror, one large enough for a small picture to fit within its center. Take a photo of the target and cut it out; lay it in the center of the mirror…vent now at the target, let all the negative energy that you feel for this person roil and boil to the surface, spit in his/her face if that is your inclination.

When you have spent yourself expressing your anger…sprinkle over this picture goofer dust, graveyard dirt, banishing powder. You could also add cayenne pepper, or any other herb/ingredient that you have successfully used in the past or that is linked to hexes/curses.

Now, encircle this picture with it’s mound of maliferous ingredients with a circle of salt– sealing the target within.

Find a safe place to keep this charm, perhaps beneath a dresser; and cover it with a bowl if you have pets in the house so that they won’t stumble upon it. Every once in a while, perhaps in conjunction with a waning moon phase, pull the mirror carefully out of its hiding place and re-sprinkle it with a bit of the powders; check the seal of salt and add to it if need be to keep the circle strong…each time you bring it out– throw your emotions at this individual.

The Poppet:

In addition– you can create a crude poppet, pin a photo of the face of the target on the face of the doll. Carefully, slowly, deliberately– stick straight pins through the mouth in a neat little row…rant, rave, spit, pound, stomp, rage. Throw your hatred and anger at this figure, then cover it in a black cloth and place it away in a secret spot.

The Witch’s Bottle:

You can also create a witch’s bottle…fill an empty bottle with pins, razor blades, shards of glass, needles, rusty nails– and a photo of the target. Add your urine to it. Close the bottle and seal it with black wax. Put it in a safe place and every once in a while, again with the waning of the moon, bring it out and shake it up— visualize the sharp objects in the bottle cutting the gossip, and the ability to gossip, from the target.

As I’ve said…

I’ve used these spells myself and was quite amazed at how well they work. But the thing is that this is an ‘ongoing’ thing, keep it up. Remember to check the mirror, less the circle of salt somehow get shifted about and create an opening. Don’t let the target sit in the bottle without bothering it now and then. Bring out the poppet, look into the target’s eyes and vent your rage ever so often…don’t let them forget, and don’t let them rest.

The energy will build.

Q&A ~ Ack! Tarot Reversals, You Didn’t Reading it the RIGHT WAY!

This is going to be a quick blog post.  The following is a comment/question left on one of my videos at my Youtube Channel.  Here’s a link ~

Organizing Your Life to Reach Goals ~ 5-30-2017

This question is from Scorpio Rising:

Do you read all cards in the spread as upright (even when turned over as reversed) in your readings? The first card was King of Pentacles reversed, but you read it as upright. I am of the understanding that a reversed card would or should render the meaning differently.

My response:

Hello, Scorpio Rising!… Sometimes reversed cards are significant, and sometimes they’re not.  You have to learn to pick up and listen to your intuition, it will let you know.  I read using the intuitive method, and I would hope that all readers eventually get to this point.  It takes you outside the box of set rigid traditional card meanings and interpretations.  If a reader can’t get past this mental box, their readings will be mechanical and repetitive, they won’t be able to really see the story, to hear what the cards (and Spirit) are trying to tell them.  I didn’t necessarily read the King of Pentacles as upright, because his more negative side was coming through, and this is how it works for me.  When this card comes up in another reading, for another client, it may present an entirely different picture, which may or may not have anything to do with the traditional meanings for this card, whether upright or reversed .  For me, tarot cards are just a trigger to poke my psychic senses and turn me in the right direction, the rest is coming from me (my mind, my brain, my intuition, wherever it is that second sight comes from).  Everyone’s psychic abilities are unique, and it works differently for every individual.
