Full moons are an excellent time to ask for divinatory dreams, but sometimes dreaming can be a challenge. A pre-bedtime bath can help to jump start dreams and bring forth the magick.
For this bath you will need:
2 cups of mugwort tea*
4 dried bay leaves*
2 cups Epsom Salt
Draw a warm bath and add in all of the items. Light some candles, play some soft music and let yourself relax. After your bath immediately go to bed. Keep a journal nearby in case you wake up and need to write down any dreams you remember.
*DO NOT USE any ingredients if you are allergic or uncertain of any allergic reaction.
Blessing Oil can be used for healing, protection, and for calling in general positive energy. The oil can be used to anoint candles, magickal charms or objects, and even yourself. (Just make sure you aren't allergic to any of the ingredients, if you don't know, it's better to not use it.)
You will need a base oil of Olive, Jojoba, or Grapeseed. You will also need frankincense resin, benzoin incense, and kosher salt.
Get a small glass container and fill it almost full. Grind up three large chunks of each of the resins until they are a fine powder and add this powder to the oil. Finally add a liberal pinch of kosher salt.
Close the lid of the jar.
Shake the oil while speaking your prayers out loud. It is best to speak from the heart, but if you struggle with what to say try this:
I charge this oil for blessing and peace
I charge this oil for blessing and healing
I charge this oil for blessing and protection
By the power of three times three
As I will it, so mote it be!
Use this oil to bring blessings!
When you are in a situation where you are stuck, emotionally blocked, or feel overloaded work this spell to help clear the way. This spell is best performed at the ocean or a river. A place with living waters. Collect a bowl of living water and find a place where you can be along and undisturbed. Cry into the bowl collecting your tears and letting them mix with the living water. When you can't cry any more take the bowl of water back to the ocean or river and pour it out, releasing your blocks along with it. If you find yourself challenged to cry, let yourself emote in other ways, scream, moan, whine, get it out.
This spell is best done with you have a specific amount of money that you need to manifest. You will need the following supplies:
-One small piece of paper
-Potted plant; a plant that is easy to grow is best
-A pinch of pyrite dust
-Pen with green or yellow ink
Using the green or yellow pen, write down the specific amount of money that you need on the piece of paper. Drop a single drop of basil oil on the paper and sprinkle the pyrite dust. Fold the paper towards yourself two times. Bury it in the bottom of the potted plant.
The completed spell should be hidden inside your home, where no one will find it or see it. You will need the following items:
-Dragon's Blood Resin that has been smashed into powder
-Teaspoon of Salt
-Teaspoon of Sugar
-Small Box no bigger than a matchbox
-Purple ink pen
Mix the resin, salt, sugar in a cauldron. Stir the ingredients in a clockwise motion. When you feel complete in this process, draw a pentacle over the top of the cauldron.
Using the purple pen draw any signs, symbols, or sigils on the white envelope that represent protection for you. Perhaps a pentacle or the rune Algiz.
Pour the powder into the box and place the box into the envelope. Before sealing the envelope whisper into the envelope what you want this magickal object to do for you. Hide it well.
As we step deeper into spring why not perform a spring cleansing. For this spell you will be creating a broom, but it will only be used for the ritual and then released. You will need to be creative with the herbs that you use. It's best to use what you have access to in your own yard or neighborhood.
Collect a combination of the following herbs and plants: cedar, fennel, rosemary, hyssop, sage, bay, or anything else that you can easily access near you.
Find yourself a long stick. If you want to pay attention to the type of wood for magickal purposes this is totally great! But not required. Use what you have.
Tie the herbs and plants to one end of the stick.
Combine salt and water. Sprinkle this over the newly created cleansing broom.
Sweep your space, get the ground, the corners, and the ceiling. Don't leave any part of your space out!
When you are finished take the broom away from your home. You can disassemble it, releasing the pieces back to the wild. You can also release it into running water or bury it.
Pomanders are often seen during the winter holidays, but they have a long history of magick and healing spell work. For this spell you will need the following items:
-An orange or grapefruit
Hold the orange in your hand and whisper to it your goal, whether that is healing, protection, or immune building. Hold the cloves in your hand and do the same, telling the cloves your goal. Sprinkle the cinnamon out on a flat surface and draw any symbols or sigils into the powder.
Pierce the skin of the orange with the cloves. Each time state your intention out loud. You may want to create a design or symbol with the cloves or just fill up as much of the skin as you can. When you are finished roll the orange in the cinnamon, again, stating your intention out loud.
Finally wrap the orange in the red ribbon and hand it in a doorway or as close to your front door as possible.
For this spell you will need the following items:
-Knotgrass; also known as knotweed
-Van Van Oil
On the paper write a clear and concise description of your problem. Wrap the paper around some knotgrass. Fold the paper three times keeping the grass enclosed in the paper. Anoint the paper with Van Van Oil.
Burn the packet.
Pay close attention to your dreams, synchronicities, and messages over the coming week. Your answer will be close at hand.
Sometimes loving ourselves is one of the hardest things to do. When you need a little help on loving yourself more gather the following ingredients:
-one small red bag - small enough that you can tuck it into your bra or pocket
-one wishbone, painted gold
-a pinch of red rose petals
-one small rose quartz
-six Grains of Paradise
-large red candle
On the night of a full moon carve your name into the side of the large red candle with a heart shape around it. Light the candle and say the words, "I love myself". Take all of the ingredients listed above and combine them all into the bag.
Breathe three long slow breaths into the bag, saying "I love myself" between each breath. Then tie the bag shut. Carry this with you as a charm and talisman to help you love yourself more.
The first day of a new year is an excellent time to do a reading for the year ahead. Here is a simple process for doing a year ahead reading, even if you don't typically read. You can do this process with a traditional tarot deck or an oracle deck. It's best if you are unfamiliar with the deck to have access to the book.
Take a moment to breathe. Ground and center yourself. Let yourself be fully present. When you feel ready pick up the deck of cards and focus on the year ahead. Let yourself remain open, but hold the power of 2020 as your focus.
Again, when you feel ready, fan out the cards and pick twelve cards. Keeping them in the order you selected them.
Flip them over one at a time. Card number one is connected to January, card number two is connected to February, card three is March, and so on.
Write down any key words or points that you want to remember that you can refer to throughout the year ahead. You might also consider taking a picture of the layout so you can refer to the imagery throughout the year as well.
