I was so excited today to make this video! It’s a peek inside my new book, Green Witchcraft Grimoire, with my commentary. There’s so much more to read and experience, so many things to explore and learn and try… recipes for seasonal celebrations and rituals, magical recipes for oils and potions and balms, as well as spells galore to help us navigate daily life.
My respected colleague, Gwendolyn Holden Barry, just shared her thoughts about my new book Green Witchcraft Grimoire… “I’ve practiced witchcraft, in independence and gathering from the many traditions of our multiple ancestors, for more than 30 years. When I began my personal journey into the past to anchor my own search with Earth-based spiritual expressions, my good friend on pages was Scott Cunningham. Amythyst’s grimoire has the foundational information and guidance Cunningham brought to our community so long ago. Elementary flow, inspiration to grow! Amythyst gives a witch the basic tools for growth and an awareness that helps to provide the window within where witchcraft waits to be expressed.” ―Gwendolyn H. Barry, blender and owner, Daughters of Isis
Thank you Gwendolyn for your support and kind words! I can’t wait to hear what the rest of you think, too.
I love this quote from my new book Green Witchcraft Grimoire: “Crystal balls are a gateway to the Spirit world, which makes them the perfect divination tool for connecting with a loved one who has passed.“
It reminds me of the first time a deceased spirit came through a tarot reading:
I was reading for an elderly man, and the reading was going along normally, when I suddenly said to him, “Okay, there’s a red-headed woman who’s just jabbering away trying to get my attention. Does this mean anything to you?”
He went pale and told me that it sounded like his wife who passed away just a few months ago.
I said, “She’s very animated and chatty, isn’t she?” He said, “Yes!”
It was at this moment I realized that divination tools can be used successfully to communicate with deceased loved ones.
The Green Witchcraft Grimoire is special because you can make it your own. In addition to the spells, rituals, and recipes, the grimoire includes sections you can fill in based on your own practice, experience, and preferences. Here’s a look at how I personalized my own copy of the Green Witchcraft Grimoire in the section on magical teas. I am so proud of this book and how it will enable you to deepen your practice.

My long time friend and fellow witch, Onyx Moon Blackstone, just shared her thoughts about my new book Green Witchcraft Grimoire ~
“Finally someone gets it! From novice to expert, this wonderful Grimoire will demystify the perceived complications of walking your unique path no matter your affinity. Its simple, clear and soulful use of your spiritual time, with solid information on the foundations of spiritual crafting, is a combination not to be missed. My new “Go to” for my magical path. Bravo Amythyst Raine.“
Thank you, Onyx, for your support and kind words! I can’t wait to hear what the rest of you think too.
Someone might finally have enough self-confidence (and common sense) to listen to their instinct and gut reactions. It gets tiresome when you know what you know, and people around you don’t realize this (especially if they’re trying to pull the wool over your eyes, makes them look like a fool and they don’t even know it). Also… the card is advising us not to become part of a pack, a group, as this can only lead to trouble and conflict down the road. Sometimes a solitary path is the best choice. Someone’s got a big head, it may be time for a reality check, give acknowledgement where recognition is due. Sit back and bide your time in silence, the day of reckoning will arrive.
The Fool (R)
Oops, someone is off to a false start. But that doesn’t mean you should give up. Regroup and begin again. I don’t think there’s any rules on how many times you can try from the beginning… again. Also… the cards are telling me that some of you have someone in the background who is influencing your decisions and probably a lot more. Is this a good influence, or a bad influence? Remember that with influence may also come manipulation. Be honest in your assessment.
The Magician (R) & Six/swords (R)
Someone lost (or gave away) a lot of their personal power in the course of a breakup or divorce.Sometimes the insinuation here is that the party giving up their personal power is experiencing a lot of guilt over the failure of this relationship, or they feel full responsibility for the end of it, usually through their behavior or choices (and actually, our behavior is determined by our choices, whether they are wise or shitty). Both cards are reversed, which implies regret on both sides, or unfinished business between a couple. Neither one has reached the other side, where they can experience life with a clean clear outlook, without being constantly drawn to their past, or haunted by it, whether consciously, or subconsciously. It may take a very long time for this wound to heal, or it may never completely go away. One of life’s regrets.

About your money… first look at it mundanely– do you budget? Do you stick to a budget? Do you have someone else influencing how you spend it? Think about mundane everyday things you can do to manage your money more efficiently, and while you’re doing that, you can look for an appropriate money spell on this page:

I’ve been busy working on the second new book for this year. April will be intense, and May will see it through to the home stretch. We’re tentatively looking at June and September as book release months. While I’ve been caught up in the birth pangs of a book, I have still kept tarot readings open and available at The Tarot Parlour. This year is creatively very exciting albeit very stressful for other apparent and sad reasons.
I don’t remember the last time I picked up a deck of tarot cards, and so today I gave in to the overwhelming inclination to do so. Here’s your daily tarot cards for today all gathered into one spot for you… click HERE
From the curling tendrils of fog crawling through a dark swamp on a hot night, to the seedy candle-lit backroom of a smoky hoodoo shop filled with exotic curios: poppets (dollies); bags and intentions; pins and herbs; images; talismans; amulets; curses and blessings; cemetery dirt; snake sheds; oils, potions, powders; shadowy figures; and legendary tales– it all adds up to Mojo.
How I can separate myself from other people’s energy.
9/swords; 5/wands; Queen of cups
Get a grip on your emotions.Avoid confrontation.Learn how to chill. The easiest way to keep yourself separated from other people’s problematic energy is to stay away from those people. It isn’t always easy to cut people from your life, but there are particular situations that warrant this when you’re looking out for your own welfare, such as friends or family that are actually enemies in disguise; ex-partners that want to keep a connection going, a connection that makes moving forward and beginning something new difficult or impossible; or co-workers that are either subconsciously causing unnecessary stress, or co-workers that are deliberately trying to poke the bear. These are but a few types of people and energies that you have to learn to separate yourself from to sustain a comfortable and happy existence in your life, and some of these people will be easier to cut than others.
Petty confrontation, bickering, constantly have to feel on guard, or feeling the need to defend yourself can all lead to an absorption of negative energy. Find ways to remove yourself from conversation, situations, or groups of people that lean toward petty bickering or other negative exchanges. Learn to walk away. There’s an unexpected perk in being able to do this. You’ll discover that this puts you in a position to view an individual or situation from a unique perspective, where you may find answers or solutions.
For very sensitive, and even empathic individuals, there are ways to protect yourself from negative energy and negative people. Magickally speaking, here are just a few suggestions: smudge yourself and your living space often; take salt baths with a pinch of rosemary and lavender added to the water; burn white candles; leave small bowls of sea salt sit in each room of your home; carry a mojo bag filled with sea salt, a clear quartz crystal, as well as an ample pinch of sage, rosemary, and hyssop; burn sandalwood incense on a daily basis. Any, or all of these magickal band-aids will help you to separate yourself from the negative energies that come with difficult, high-strung, or co-dependent individuals.
Something I can do in the moment to top absorbing unwanted emotions.
How I can remain grounded in my own energy.
Something to remember when I want to set energetic boundaries.
How I can use my energy sensitivity to help myself & others.
