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.

Bubble, Bubble, Toil n’ Trouble

I get so many requests from people who want me to sit down and put a spell together for them.  I don’t think they realize 1) how time consuming this would be to do for just one individual, not to mention the many other requests coming in; 2) that I work 5 days a week at a mundane job (well, it’s 5 days a week, but I guess I can’t call working in a metaphysical shop “mundane”).

These requests most frequently come in at my blog Magickal Connections at the bottom of the three “Spells & Potions” pages.  These pages contain FREE spells that I’ve taken the time to put together and post on my blog for everyone’s use.  However, I have a very strong feeling that some people don’t even begin to read through them, they want me to do all that and pick one out for them.  If money were no issue and I had all the time in the world to do anything I want, I’m sure it would be fun putting spells together for people to help them get through all their trials and tribulations.

But money and time are an issue in my life.  I have replied to people in the comments that I WILL help them put a spell together that they can cast themselves, and I will answer any questions that they have to the best of my ability– but this is not free.  I charge for my time.

It’s $60.00 for a half hour phone consultation.

https://amythystraine.blogspot.com/p/creating-spellsconsultation.html

A less expensive service that I offer at my site connected to spell casting is a Candle Altar Service.  For a small fee I’ll fix and dress and burn a spell candle for you, and I’ll take the remains of that spell to make you a mojo bag that I’ll mail to you.

This service is $21.99 for a single candle, or $61.99 for a triple candle spell.

https://amythystraine.blogspot.com/p/candle-altar-services.html

First, please make use of these three pages of dozens and dozens of FREE spells.  They’re all categorized to make finding what you really need as easy as possible.

A Crystal, A Candle, & a French Chant

I’m migrating to a new computer, thanks to my son, who is doing all the technical work AND supplying me with the new computer (those 15 hours of labor 26 years ago are paying off *lol*).  He has moved EVERYTHING from my old computer into the new one, which is a huge job, as I’ve accumulated so much through years of writing, photographing, video taping, and Doing Stuff.  I’m actually finding things that I’ve forgotten about in old files, and that’s what I’m posting here today.  The following Spell was in a folder I used for taking notes, called “Personal Notebook”.  I don’t have these entries dated, nor have I recorded any original sources, but as so often the case with this type of thing, this Spell is perfect for the Here n’ Now ~

“Eleven Mysteries Exercise”…brief notes:
(personally modified)

crystal, white candle,

Take a deep breath. Place your hands, palms down, one on each side of the crystal. Empty your mind. Slowly open your hands so that they will rest on the table, but the palms are facing each other– still the same distance apart, one on each side of the crystal. If you are trying to materialize an object, place a lodestone or pair of lodestones beside the crystal.

As you recite the chant, bring your hands together– a mark at a time. This means that you will be saying the chant eleven times in all, while focusing on the crystal in the middle that rests upon your desire.

Begin, with the first of eleven repetitions:

“Venez a’ moi. (pause) Come to me.

De’plier. (pause) Unfold.

Dimension to dimension.

De’plier. (pause) Unfold.

As you utter the charm, your hands will most likely grow significantly warm and you may feel as if you are actually holding something– which, in essence, you are.

On the eleventh repetition, as you utter the last word (“De’plier”), with a rush of breath, open your eyes and look immediately up to the right– that place where we manufacture from fantasy into reality of the spoken word and say– “Cachet! Tow!”, which roughly translates to “hide the spell”.

This is where I place links & promote Stuff ~

“You Are Beautiful!”~Self-Esteem Oil

To Amythyst, from Joe

A few days ago Joe bought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and they are just now beginning to fade.  I decided to make an oil with the flower blossoms while they’re still fresh-looking and beautiful.  My oil is a self-esteem oil, made to promote the essence of beauty, and to reinforce the energies of strength, brilliance, success, and accomplishment.

You are Beautiful!~Self-Esteem Oil.

I didn’t make this oil to sell, but rather for myself, creating one more Beautiful Witchy Thing to display in my Witchy Room.  It also seemed like a great way to preserve the beauty of the flowers and to make use of their magickal energy.

Here’s my recipe.  Make your own Self-Esteem Oil!

The Flower Blossoms~

Pink miniature tiger lilys
Red Rose Buds

The Herbs~

Whole Allspice
Anise Seeds

The Oil~

Witchcraft: It’s All About the Journey, Not the Destination

magickal 3

Everyone wants to cast spells.  That’s the first thing people think about, and the most popular aspect of witchcraft.  I think it might have something to do with the awesome feeling of regaining your personal power, of being in control of your life, of being responsible for your destiny and it’s outcome.  But it also has to do with mystery and drama, the visuals, and our childhood idea of “magick”.

That’s what everyone seems to concentrate on at the beginning– learning to cast spells and do magick.  For most of us the idea is new and daring and exciting, made more so by society and the mainstream view of religion and witchcraft. It’s “taboo” in so many social circles, conservative communities, and even some countries around the world. Witch hunts still exist in Africa, and your life is literally in danger if you’re labeled “Witch”. Likewise for certain areas of the Mid-East.  You can be put to death.  This idea seems outrageous, doesn’t it, in our modern world.  But we’re not always as modern as we’d like to think we are, and people still tend to be frightened and irrational when it comes to things they don’t understand, or things they were taught to view as evil.

I remember the early years, pouring over books of correspondences, aligning moon phases with intentions, jotting down ingredients, planning the moment of the casting down to the astrological hour– spending days planning and aligning and gathering.  It’s all part of the process you know, it all plays into raising energy.  And then, that magickal moment, when the circle was cast, and I was “between-the-worlds”, sitting there with the  spell candle and ingredients, the athame and crystals and stones and figurines of the god and goddess; and yes, even the black cast iron cauldron (so clique, but so necessary).

Did the spells work?  Actually, 95% of the time, they did.  Don’t count the foolish one’s of youth, or the spells whipped up in the white heat of anger.  They don’t work, the energy being too fractured and scattered (maybe Spirit is looking out for us this way, maybe this is like the safety on a gun, so that we don’t unintentionally do harm in a rash moment).  Casting spells is a lot of work, raising energy to move energy in the universe takes a lot out of you.  The power is there, no mistaking that, but it takes considerable effort on the part of the witch to work with it.

You reach a point, after the first few years, after you’ve immersed yourself in that first frenzied layer of activity, when you start to look at witchcraft and see more detail emerge.  You see below the layers of magick spells and spell casting, and all the hoopla surrounding it.  You start to look at the fabric of witchcraft- and you start to weave this into your daily life, creating your own mosaic, slipping quietly into your niche in the universe.

Okay, you’ve got spell casting down pat, you’ve experienced The Power, you know the magick is real, you are “Witch” through and through.  Now what?

For me the second stage of my journey actually began with a spell.  The spell was done to touch the universe, my Spirit Guide, and other higher energies floating through the astral, and ask them:  “What am I suppose to be doing? Why have I been drawn to this path?  What is my Gift?  How am I suppose to use it?”

The answer emerged in the flames of a purple candle.

7

Divination.

The second aspect of my journey was a new learning process, which included learning about, handling, experimenting with, and using various forms of divination– the pendulum, runes stones, I-Ching coins, crystal balls, Ouija boards, divining rods…and ultimately coming upon the one tool that would finally speak to me:  the tarot.

Round three for me– immersing myself in the study of tarot cards.

It started, actually, with a trip to our local bookstore, walking past a shelf full of decks of bright colored and beautiful cards (tarot cards).  One deck popped out at me, and that little voice in my head whispered , “Buy them.”  It sounds easy and simple, but it wasn’t.  Learning anything new requires a lot of work and realistic expectations.  No one is going to pick up anything overnight, especially something that works through your own personal energy and special Gift– at the beginning you have no idea what this gift is or how the hell it works.  You have to start by learning to listen to your own inner voice (your sub-conscious, your intuition) and allowing the cards to trigger images, memories– clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient experiences.  It’s all very confusing.  You’re hesitant to trust yourself, or the cards, in the beginning, and a lot of people, when they reach this stage, give up.  Fortunately, I wasn’t one of those people.

The biggest obstacle I had to overcome:  Being afraid of being wrong.

As that magickal guiding voice in your head is whispering from one direction all the insights and information you are suppose to be relating to the world at large, and one particular individual specifically; that conscious big-loud-bossy voice in your head is screaming at you:  “What if you’re wrong?  What if you’re wrong?  What if you’re wrong?”

And what if you’re wrong?…divination is not an exact science; and no reader is going to be 100% accurate 100% of the time.  But I can honestly tell you that I have more regrets– lots and lots of big in-your-face regrets– about what I DIDN’T say, rather than anything I said.

You learn.

25

When it all seems comfortable and settled down; when you’ve learned to accept who you are, what you are; when you’ve learned to use your Gift, or at least accept that it exists; when you’ve learned to incorporate all of this into your daily life somehow and get it all to work…then you know that you’ve arrived.

And just when you get ready to level off at this plateau, thinking you’ve learned all you were meant to learn, and you’re doing everything you were meant to do, something unexpected happens.  Curiosity comes to call in the guise of crystals and stones, an unusual friend, a new book, a new blog, a study group, or whispered questions sent to you by the universe.  Just when you think you’ve arrived at your Spiritual Destination, it dawns on you in a magick flash of twinkling lights– that the Journey has not ended.

Spell a Day: Monday-Friday Magick

Here’s inspiration for a spell a day, Monday-Friday…to connect with powerful spiritual entities, beat writer’s block, be delightfully successful in your newest business venture, get that marriage proposal you’ve been waiting for, and find your true inner beauty.

We’re going to be working with my favorite kind of magick…candle spells! I’m including herbs and stones, oils, and magickal incantations. I’m assuming that if you’re reading this, you’re a magickal practitioner who is going to know how to use the correspondences and all the magickally scrumptious ingredients to put together and cast a spell. But just in case you’re not– you can refer to this blog post on Candle Magick…here’s everything you’ll need to know to whip up some delightfully witchy results!

Spell For the Day: Monday

Spirit Guide Connection
(find and connect with your Spirit Guide)

Who is your spirit guide? Are they real?…Yes! They are beings who inhabit the spirit world and are connected to you in some way– to protect you, to guide you, to teach you. You can call them angels, or guardian angels, or they may be spirits of your ancestors, or spiritual beings of a higher evolution than us. They may come to you as nothing more than a small voice in your head that you’re barely aware of, the voice that warns you of danger in the moment– the voice that makes you hesitate just for that split second that was needed when another car runs a red light, or convinces you to postpone a trip and avoid an accident. They may give you warnings in the form of premonitions, or dreams, or visions. They also guide you as you explore and discover your spirituality and your life’s path.

It’s imperative that you connect with your Spirit Guide, and the following spell will help you do just that.

Blue candles/Planet: Moon/Herbs: calamus, cardamom, jasmine, myrrh, sandalwood, vanilla/Stones: aquamarine, chalcedony, moonstone, sapphire/Visions Oil: star anise, angelica, kava kava*

Sweet Guardian Spirit, my teacher, my guide;
Touch my shoulder, stay by my side.

Travel with me on this journey called life;
Protect me from harm, evil, and strife.

Spell For the Day: Tuesday

Go’in to the Chapel
(matrimony spell)

You’re in Loooove! He loves you, you love him (or She loves you and you love her). But for some reason that all important question isn’t getting asked. You’re the perfect couple, kindred souls, coupled spirits, everything is all hunky-dory in the love department. It’s just a matter of who, how, and when those four important little words are going to get said. Here’s a little magick to put some fire under it!

Red candles/Planet: Mars/Herbs: allspice, basil, coriander, ginger, marigold, nutmeg/Stones: garnet, jasper (red), rhodocrosite, ruby/Love Oil: palmarosa, ylang ylang, ginger, rosemary, cardamom

My partner, my love;
Without you, what would life be?

To seal our love and build our dreams,
Will you marry me?

Spell For the Day: Wednesday

Loosen the Pen
(getting rid of writer’s block)

We’ve all done it, those of us who write. We have sat there and stared in a stupor before a blank piece of paper or a blank computer screen. The thoughts wouldn’t come, the words wouldn’t come, and the ideas wouldn’t jell. There’s probably mundane ways to break writer’s block, but anything that I’ve tried takes time; you wind up just having to wait it out. I’m impatient. And if you’re a writer with deadlines to meet and assignments to complete, you can’t just sit around waiting for your brain to wake up and that elusive Muse to whisper in your ear. I like the idea of a magick spell to break writer’s block, to get the ball rolling– or the pen writing, or the keyboard clicking.

Yellow candles/Planet: Mercury/Herbs: anise, eye-bright, lavender, marjoram, sage, slippery elm/Stones: agate, aventurine, jasper (mottled), mica/Mercury Oil: lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint

Magickal Muse, whisper in my ear;
Put pen to paper, make my thoughts run clear.

The words will come, the ink will flow;
My brain runs free– and off we go!

Spell For the Day: Thursday

Success and Prosperity shine on me;
The Midas touch will set me free.

Money, success, and flame flow in;
The universe shouts, “Win, win, win!!”

Spell For the Day: Friday

The Goddess in Me
(beauty and self-empowerment)

I am pretty damn terrific!…say it!! Repeat it, shout it, believe it, feel it, wallow in it. Pretend you’re standing at the summit of a mountain, or you’re standing on the roof of your house, or the top of the Empire State Building and shout, as loud as you can– I am pretty damn terrific!!

Now get your gorgeous damn terrific selves busy and cast this spell to draw in all that beautiful powerful over-the-top magnificent Energy!

Pink candles/Planet: Venus/Herbs: aster, catnip, geranium (pink), hibiscus, licorice (the root), willow/Stones: rose quartz, moonstone, emerald, lapis lazuli/Beauty Bath: lavender, rosemary, spearmint, comfrey root, thyme

I am Powerful and Beautiful;
It’s the Goddess in me.

I am Woman Supreme;
By the power of three!*

*Note: the oils and the beauty bath are courtesy of “Incense, Oils, & Brews” by Scott Cunningham. I’ve left the amount of each ingredient used open to your own discretion. As for the oils, personally, I prefer olive oil as a base.

*Note: “…as high as corn at fourth of July”: for those of you unfamiliar with this term, it’s a Mid-western farm thing. When fourth of July rolls around, the corn should be Knee-High!

*Note: the number “3” holds lots of magickal implications– there is the goddess trinity (maiden, mother, crone); there is the infamous line to draw in energy for your spells (by the awful awesome power of three times three); in magick concoctions, it’s often three ingredients called for; and so it goes.

Green Witchcraft: Herbs & Planetary Connections

 

cropped-magic-2.jpg

Old school Witchcraft 101…those of you who’ve thrown some magickal energy around (in a good way, of course), cast a few circles, chanted a few chants, those who have walked this path for any length of time and tapped into the magickal realm of witchcraft and wizardry, are going to be familiar with the information in this blog post, but be patient with me.  This post is for the new kids on the block.  (Better than being patient, why don’t you add your magickal two cents to this post with a comment by leaving some of your own wisdom for new witches to pick up on, things you’ve learned through your own experience and practice…thank you in advance.)

Below are the planets and their special energies and ten of my favorite herbs for each planet:

MOON— Day/Monday– this is the planet that is immersed in the energy of the goddess, feminine energy, intuition, inner mysteries, dreams, the filmy ethereal world of fairies and mythical creatures, and the element of Water

The herbs:  calamus, lemon balm, gardenia, passion flower, jasmine, lotus, moonwort, myrrh, sandalwood, poppy, camellia

MERCURY— Day/Wednesday– this is the planet connected to communication and creativity, it centers on intelligence and wonderful lucid moments of awareness, and the element of Air

The herbs:  fennel, lavender, lemongrass, marjoram, peppermint, almond, bittersweet, flax, horehound, lily of the valley

VENUS— Day/Friday– this is the planet connected to love and romance, beauty and luxury, it’s bathed in the warm glow of healthy narcissism and mutual attraction, sexuality, warm and fuzzy friendships, and the element of Water

The herbs:  apple, aster, magnolia, hibiscus, foxglove, geranium, blackberry, corn, lilac, willow

MARS— Day/Tuesday– this is the harsh, hot, in-your-face energy of the warrior, it encompasses strength, it protects, it challenges, it sets boundaries and patrols the parameters of our world, on the watch for negative energy, and it is connected to the element of Fire

The herbs:  cumin, garlic, ginger, holly, pine, tobacco, wormwood, coriander, allspice, hawthorn

JUPITER— Day/Thursday– this is the planet of growth and expansion, it touches and influences the financial commercial world we inhabit, it infiltrates the judicial system, the institutions that keep our society running smoothly, and it’s influenced by the element of Earth

The herbs:  anise, dandelion, sage, nutmeg, witch grass, clove, honeysuckle, hyssop, maple, fig

SATURN— Day/Saturday– the dark side, the shadow world is found here, the place that so many tend to tip-toe through, but the energy so often needed, this is the planet that will bring the truth to light and punish those who have harmed others, and it’s connected with the element of Earth and Fire

The herbs:  skullcap, slippery elm, wolf’s bane, morning glory (devil’s guts), hemlock, hemp, belladonna, comfrey, mimosa, knot weed

 

The Witch’s Cauldron: Money, Money, Come to Me

cauldron 1

When it comes to money spells, it’s become common place to equate these magickal endeavors with such sanctimonious cliques as ‘I’m only doing this spell for necessities’, ‘money spells are not done to make you rich’, ‘only ask for what you need’, blah, blah, blah. Ya, right– and who believes this. There isn’t anyone who wouldn’t love casting a money spell, only to wake up the next morning filthy rich. If I could– I would, and so would a lot of people, they just won’t admit it.

But what we view as the successful manifestation of these spells, and what the universe views as successful manifestation of these spells are often two very different things.

This was brought home to me one fine summer day.

One of my daughters and I were going to take a walk together. When they were younger, I would love doing this on an individual basis in order to have one on one time with each child. This was also the day I was casting a money spell, and I was just finishing up this little ritual, and kind of hurrying through the end of it, as my daughter was calling to me, ready to go for her walk.

The green candle was still perking along, flaming in magickal anticipation, as we started off down the road together.

We had gone quite a ways when we decided to turn onto a dead-end gravel road. The end of this road stopped at a wire fence, staunchly held in place with large square posts. Beyond the fence was a wide grassy pasture, where a beautiful horse was lazily grazing and swatting at flies with its thick tail. Surprisingly, the horse came when we called, and we were enthralled to be able to touch this beautiful animal and to look into its big brown eyes.

We were leaning on one of the large square posts supporting the fence, and I just happened to glance down to see a very small square object partially buried in the dirt.

“What’s that?”, I ask my daughter.

She bends down to retrieve it, and brings up a very dirty piece of paper, folded several times into a tight square. She begins unfolding it, and unfolding it, and unfolding it, until it is fanned out in her hands.

Her eyes open wide in astonished amazement…it is a $10.00 bill.

The Witch’s Cauldron: 7 of Cups Magick Spell

cauldron 1

This spell will require the energy of the seven of cups tarot card—the card of decisions, decisions, decisions.

When you find yourself facing a life changing all important decision and you are having trouble reaching it, this is the spell for you. It’s also beneficial if you are faced with a multitude of decisions and must choose the best one.

Correspondences

Moon Phase: waxing to full moon

Day: Friday

Planet: Venus—a planet that deals not only with relationships, but with decisions as well

Colors: green or white

Herbs: sandalwood, lilac, sage, Solomon‘s Seal Root

Oil: psychic oil

Incense: sandalwood

Tarot Card: seven of cups

What to do:

1. Cast a circle.

2. Light the incense.

3. Use white and green candles, as many as you need for the number of choices you have to decide upon. Anoint them with the oil, and roll them in a mixture of the herbs you’ve chosen from those listed, and then sit these candles upon your altar.

4. On small slips of white paper, write down each individual choice involved with the decision or decisions you must make. There will be one small slip of paper for each choice. Place one slip of paper beneath each candle.

5. Sit the seven of cups tarot card upon your altar, among the candles, where you can see it and meditate upon it, or if you wish, you can hold it.

6. Light the candles.

7. As the spell candles are burning themselves out observe them. Which candle is burning itself out first? Which flames are you drawn to? After the candles have finished burning themselves out, skry the wax. What shapes do you see in the remnants of the wax? Which one catches your eye?

8. Gather the remains of this spell, including the slips of paper you placed beneath the candles, whether they have burned to ashes or not, and place these items in a small bag, along with the clear quartz crystal and the seven of cups tarot card. Sleep with this bag beneath your pillow until you reach a decision.

This task should be easier now.

The Witch’s Desk: FAQ

I’m more than a little stupefied at the number of questions coming through the inbox– the form in the right column of the Home page for messaging– at my website (The Witch’s Corner).  There’s no way I can keep up with them all, so each week I’m going to pick and choose a few that strike me (posted as is, no editing).  These questions will be posted anonymously of course, always, your privacy is important to me.  I will also always be totally honest in my answers, sometimes maybe brutally so, and this means that the answer isn’t necessarily going to be what you want to hear or what you are expecting.  And with that said, I’ll start with the first question:

1.  i need to detox for a drug test iv done a fast befor a witch that use to live here made a spical potion water for a 3 day fast i dont rember what all was in it can you help

This boggles my mind on so many levels I don’t know where to begin:  First, get off the drugs– I know, this statement is a total waste of time, because this won’t happen until YOU decide to get off the drugs for YOURSELF.  I don’t know what you are taking, but this 3 day magickal potion fasting crap is a bunch of hooey; I do know that various drugs stay in your system for different lengths of time, and some can still be detected weeks and even months later in your hair follicles.  Second– why complicate your life with illegal drugs?  You can’t reach your potential while you’re plastering your system with a cocktail of chemicals it was never meant to handle.  It weakens your mind, your body; it steals from you the capacity for achievement; it has a negative effect on everyone who touches your life in any way.  It is a living death, it’s a trap…but there is a way out, a way to break the pattern, to break the chains that bind.  I hope you find it.

2.  Hey, I really need your help, my biggest dream is to be like you and ive been researching a lot on witchcraft but I want your help please im willing to do anything please help me! I want to practice witchcraft just as you do!!!

Your biggest dream should be to be like “You”…You are unique, your place in the universe and in the grand scheme of things is important, it’s priceless even.  New human beings may be born because of you, people’s lives will change and are touched, molded, expanded, enriched– because of you.  If you were not “You”, the picture would not be the same.  It’s wonderful that you wish to practice witchcraft, because it is a joyous empowering spiritual path, but you should embrace this path because of your own connection to it, your own spiritual awakening, your own realization of it’s ‘rightness’ for you and the positive implications it will have on your life.  If the path of the Goddess is right for you, all that I can do to help you is to encourage you to read, to keep learning, to explore through media, books, through meditation and reflection.  If this path is your path, you will know.

3.  Hi , I have been trying to register , the reason is they put a dot after com and their aren`t any please help me subscribe thanks 

You can’t register at The Witch’s Corner because I disabled that function.  When I set this website up, I had no idea that there was an option to set it up as a social site.  I guess it was that way for years, and I just left it– pretty much ignoring that feature, but within the past year I found and figured out how to disable this function.  It was never my intent to start a social site.

4.  How do I get a wand what do I have to do thank u 

Ah, the “Magick Wand”…getting a wand can be as simple as finding a beautiful twig from a tree laying in the grass, or it can be as uncomplicated as visiting your local new-age shop and purchasing one– I have wands that I’ve gotten both ways.  My first wand was a twig I found on the ground in the backyard, cast off in a summer wind by our beautiful Maple tree.  I consecrated it and decorated it with ribbons.  My other wand was purchased at a new-age shop and is made from a tree found only in Africa (though the name of that tree escapes me for the moment); it’s all polished and finished and really quite beautiful.  Both wands have worked for me; I love both of them; I use both of them; and the fact that one was a free gift from the Goddess and one was purchased at a store has really made no difference.

5.  Hello i am sorry to bother you but i was wondering if i could have some advice please. me and my partner are having trouble with his ex who is constantly interfering and stalking him which is beginning to put a strain on our relationship, she has a boyfriend herself but keeps sending my fiance messages like i love you and miss you like crazy etc even though they broke up over 2 years ago now. we fear if we say anything to either of them it may make the situation worse for us. me and my partner don’t get to see each other as much as we would like as he is in the army so is only about 2 weeks every few months but when we do see each other it’s sometimes ruined by her interfering. my fiance proposed on new years and she turned up to the place we were at and ruined the rest of our night. I was wondering if there are any spells i could cast to make her leave us be and re-strengthen mine and my partners love without harming anyone or anything coming back on me? witchcraft has run in my family for years my dad has been a witch for over 24 years now and i too practice the craft, but am having a little trouble with this situation. Any help would be much appreciated. Many Thanks

There’s so many red flags here that it’s hard to see the forest through the trees.  First, there’s a name for this woman– it’s “Stalker”.  Second, what’s the matter with this fiancé of yours, this big ‘ole army dude, why is he afraid to tell this woman to buzz off, it’s over, finished, leave me alone?  She’s been sending him “I love you” messages for two years?  If you say anything to “either of them” it would cause trouble?– how so, don’t you think her boyfriend would be interested in the fact that his girlfriend is declaring her love to another man???  The fact that this woman showed up on the night of your proposal and ruined the evening is very telling– 1) why wouldn’t your boyfriend tell her to take a hike; and if she refused, why wouldn’t he call the police to have her removed? 2) they are in close proximity of each other, which makes me suspicious.

Sorry, my dear, there are just too many holes in this story.  If your fiancé really wanted this woman out of his life, it seems he would be making more of an effort.  As far as magick spells go– you need spells for protection, to protect yourself– and it is only you that I’m concerned with here.  You need spells to protect you from the negative energy of this woman; you need spells to protect you from deceit, or to reveal a liar; you need spells to ward negativity in general; and you need spells to guard your living space.

You only see this man for 2 weeks every few months?  Me thinks you need to think on this one.  It sounds like this man is having his cake and eating it too.

 

So What Kind of Spell Do You Need?

Putting a spell together takes some thought, some research, some planning, and some foot-work (particularly if you don’t have necessary items on hand and have to purchase them, or cultivate them from nature).  So start with a question:  What kind of spell do you need?

Okay, I have a volunteer– “Stacy”.  She has asked me to put a spell together for her to help her with issues of fertility;  and she has kindly agreed to allow the making of this spell to be posted publicly, though her identity will be kept secret.  (Thank you, Stacy!)

First, what does this issue involve deity-wise; what planetary and elemental connections are we talking about here; what sort of herbs would add the energy needed; candle color; timing; what sort of ritual to set this magic off– informal, most likely for a solitary practitioner who practices quietly; what other objects or ‘personal items’ would we need to collect; how would we finish this spell up– release the energy– dispose of the remnants (Or would we dispose of the remnants?).  Can you see all the questions involved in constructing a spell?  Can you see why the practice of witchcraft can be a lot of work?  It requires a vesting of our energy, our mental thought and attention; it can be time consuming, and it must be carried off to work in the first place– which means making the time to actually cast the spell.

It isn’t easy being a witch.  It’s not like the movies at all.  There’s no big ole’ magick wand that we can wave with a special word or two spoken and ‘voila, the spell is cast and magick happens immediately.  Get “real”, sez I.  Here’s how real magick works, get ready to roll up your sleeves and put your energy into it…

First, the Deity:  It might surprise you that I’m not going to choose one of the many goddesses who are connected to physical fertility; instead, I’m going to invoke the energy and spirit of “Papa Legba”.  This entity was greatly maligned recently on a popular television program, depicted as a cocaine snorting devil with an unquenchable thirst for pure human souls (babies).  It’s wise to remember that a lot of what you watch on tv is Fiction, and that creating a riveting story is part of the screen writer’s job.  The ultimate irony in this is that Papa Legba is noted, invoked, and drawn upon by women with fertility issues, he is actually the anti-thesis of his television portrayal:

Papa Legba is the famous, and infamous, spirit of the crossroads, often appearing as an old black man.  He’s a spirit from the West African Voodoo tradition, and you will find him under the guise of many other names, including:  Elegba, Exu, and Papa La Bas– his New Orleans incarnation.

 Papa Legba is a trickster who delights in practical jokes and word games, but he is also a spirit of amazing generosity and protective care.  He protects infertile women, removing obstacles to motherhood; and he assists the poor, often opening up paths and removing obstacles that hinder their growth towards prosperity.  It is said that Papa Legba stands at the crossroads with his shepherd’s crook, where he opens and closes access to life’s path.

Now that we’ve chosen the deity to invoke for the energy we need, what’s going to go along with him???

Ideally I would prefer to work with the energy of a full moon, or at least a waxing moon.  Papa Legba’s ideal days are Mondays and the third day of every month.  Mondays– perfect!– connected to the Goddess, women’s mysteries, the Moon, the element of Water, fertility, women’s physical and mental health.

Candle colors and altar colors would be red, black, and white (Also, ironically, these colors are connected with the three faces of the goddess: red, the mother; black, the crone; and white, the maiden.)  The unique thing about being notoriously eclectic is that it broadens my spiritual path, allowing me to make connections and magickal links to topics, energies, and entities that those aligned with only one tradition or magickal practice might not think about.

The main herb I want to use with this spell is the strawberry…but you can also incorporate other herbs in this spell, and I would suggest herbs and flowers that produce through abundant seeds, such as dill, dandelion, goober daisies, cherry tomatoes, etc.

garden magic 2

Okay, we have our deity, the timing, the colors, the herbs, now you have to decide what kind of magick you’re going to use, how are you going to process this spell and cast it.  I’m going to suggest a combination of candle magick with a mojo bag, using the remnants left over to create the mojo bag that will be kept in a safe and sacred spot…and we can even do something especially significant here.  Stacy, I’m going to speak directly to you now– go to one of those hobby shops (like Hobby Lobby or Michael’s), buy a small wooden box that you will paint and decorate yourself in a way that resonates with you and your idea of a baby; decorate this box in ways that connect with your deep desire.  To this box you can add baby booties, a bottle of baby lotion, a pacifier, a letter to this baby, and whatever else you have room for that will bring this child to life in your mind, that will make its existence real and solid, so that you can almost bury your face in his fuzzy fine hair and smell the scent– most importantly, you will add to this box the mojo bag full of spell remnants– the candle wax and ashes (if you burned any type of spell paper with it).  You could also add to the box small bags of the magickal herbs listed above.

Put this box in a very special and safe place, and have patience dear Lady, nature will work it’s own brand of magick at the perfect moment.
