This Mercury Retrograde spread looks complicated at first glance, but it’s actually really simple.

 

All you need is to draw each card with the question ‘How can I communicate better with (x)?’ in mind.

Whilst this spread is especially powerful when used under Mercury Retrograde, but you can use it any time of year to see some really great results.

The answers you get can be really interesting! You might find that you need to adjust your attitude in a few specific situations, or  you might find that the cards point to a particular trait or action of yours that you need to radically change.

If you you’ve used this spread, let me know in the comments below!

This spread is an excerpt from the free book, Retro-Tarot. Retro-Tarot contains 10 all-new Tarot spreads inspired by the planets in Retrograde. The best part is, it’s totally free! You can get it here.

Travel Pocket Spell

Travel Protection SpellsTravel pocket spell

Into an empty pocket (cut from a pair of trousers, preferably ones you’ve worn a while) place as many of the following objects:

  • A hagstone (stone with a natural hole in it)
  • An anchor or other nautical charm
  • A wheel or other automobile charm (dice work for this)
  • Dried orange, lemon or grapefruit slices
  • A cinnamon stick
  • An amethyst
  • A carnelian
  • A rose quartz

 

Then sew it shut with brown or orange cord.

 

All of these items either convey protection, travel protection, or fast travel. It breaks down as follows:

Protection

  • An amethyst
  • A carnelian
  • A rose quartz
  • A cinnamon stick
  • Brown cord

Travel Protection

  • Nautical charm
  • Automobile charm

Fast Travel

  • Hagstone
  • Citrus fruit
  • Orange cording

Wearing the pants gives the fabric some of your ‘energy’, and helps to blend it into the spell.

When you break a spell down like this, you can see exactly why certain ingredients have been chosen. This is important, because it allows you to make much better choices about substitutions.

For example, all of the fruits under fast travel are citrus. You wouldn’t swap them for an apple, right? You wouldn’t need to know all of the fruits that might signify fast travel, only that the ones given are citrus. It would be reasonable to assume therefore that citrus fruit would make a reasonable substitution. So you would know you could add lime slices, or maybe an Earl Grey teabag*, and you wouldn’t go too far wrong.

 

*It contains bergamot, which is a citrus fruit. Sometimes you have to go a bit sideways in witchcraft to get what you want.

This lesson is an excerpt from Magical Methods. Buy Magical Methods before June 1st to avoid the price increase!

Price Increase Reminder – Magical Methods

Just a quick reminder that the price for ‘Magical Methods‘ goes up to £39 on the 1st of June – so get in now!

 

Not only do you get £10 if you buy before then, but you also get a sweet bonus. You’ll get access to a private student’s only Facebook group, and I’ll be doing livestreams in that group every week for the month of June. That’s a £45 value – more than the actual course!

 

I’ve done that deliberately – I want you to get the best value that you can out of the materials. Live lessons are a great way to do that, but they aren’t sustainable over a long period of time – for you or for me. They will be recorded to watch at your leisure, but you’ll get the most out of them by turning up live – you’ll be able to ask questions in real time! Just like if I was sat in your very front room. Except you don’t have to feed me gin and biscuits, so it actually works out better for you.

 

Here is some more information about what you get in the Magical Methods course. Basically, the point of the course is to teach you how magic/witchcraft WORKS. Not long lists of trees or herbs to remember. Not prancing around with a lighter trying to remember which way is East. Simple, practical and powerful knowledge that will supercharge your practice.

 

Get in here.

What is Witchcraft?

 what is witchcraftWhat is magic?

Magic is simply changing the world by manipulation of energy. The world as you know it is merely a hallucination caused by your senses trying to make sense of it.

Magic is using the rules of the actual Universe to influence it. It can feel a lot like breaking them. You are bending your own mind past what you believe to be true – sensing what is actually there, and trying to make sense of it and use it.

So, what can you actually do with it? Just about anything you like. If you aren’t getting the results that you want, you need to look at what you are doing to get them, and change it. Anything is possible – you just have to know the passwords.

What is witchcraft?

This question can be probably be answered much better in a whole book, although I’ll give it a go.

Witchcraft can be many things. It can be part or whole of a religion like Wicca. It can be a standardized version of what  our ancestors left us, like British Traditional Witchcraft. It can be the magic of the common people, the forgotten people, whatever form that might take. It can be whatever knowledge you crib together in the dark with a pebble and a rosemary plant.

This is my definition:

Most forms of witchcraft tend to involve other objects beyond the magic creator. Some will argue and say that someone who purely uses themselves and pure energy to work can call themselves a witch. That’s up to them. But what I describe below are some methods that have been open to ‘witches’ in a variety of cultures across Europe and the US. These methods have been chosen because I know them and can teach them, not because it’s an exhaustive list.

 

A wise man once said that in a room of 12 witches there are 13 opinions. Another wise person once said that the name for a group of witches is an opinion. Bear this in mind when you study.

Forms of Witchcraft

 

The follow list concerns itself with just creating the future, rather than foretelling it, even though many divinatory traditions are associated with or part of witchcraft ones. You’ll notice, however, that I’ve included things like Tarot and runes as things you can use for spells – because you can!

Dolls and Poppets

Poppets are the English terms for what movie call a ‘voodoo doll’. Voodoo doll is a misnomer, and does nothing for either poppet or Haitian magic.

Poppets can be used for a couple of things – mainly either cursing or healing. This doesn’t always have to be physical curses/cures – poppets can also be used to influence thought patterns.

Dolls can also be used to provide homes for Spirits, or used to create guardians. You can also use a doll as a scapegoat to prevent a curse from latching onto you.

 

Shrinemaking

Shrine making is less a way to create a defined outcome, and more a way of pleasing Spirits who you may later want to call upon. It’s kinda like taking your new neighbours a pie, in case you ever need them to watch the house whilst you’re away. The pie is an overture to a friendly relationship, not direct payment for the house sitting. However, if you just blundered into their garden one day and offered them £100 to watch the house, they’d probably tell you to get lost.

 

Get your local Spirits pies.

 

Shrinemaking can also be used to help bless and protect your home and land. By connecting with the other Spirits that are there, you solidify the relationship, and can work together against intruders.

Bottles and Jars

Witch bottles (or spell jars)  are fun, easy ways to create a variety of effects. As a spell base, they can be effective for:

  • money
  • love
  • friendship
  • animal work
  • protection

Some people define a witch bottle as strictly the traditional version which is used as a scapegoat, and call other spells involving bottles and jars ‘spell jars’. Some people use the term witch bottle to encompass all magics involving jars.

You can learn about all types of bottle magic in this free course.

Candles

Candle magic is a much more modern form of magic than you’d think – especially if we’re talking coloured candles. Candles were very precious objects in the past! However, it was not an unusual item to have, like a hunk of crystal or fairy doll, which is why they became an item to use for undetected witchcraft – like brooms, and cauldrons.

As candles have got cheaper and cheaper and less needed to be used for lighting, much more forms and types of magic have sprung up around them. With the addition of coloured waxes or painted candles, the sorts of magic you can do with candles has grown exponentially.

 

Candles are a subset of fire magic and therefore are fantastic for banishing, but they are often the beginners tool of choice. It’s easy to understand why – easy to get hold of, easy to use, and there’s as much fancy ritual needed as you feel inclined to give it.

 

When you want to expand your knowledge, you can still stick with candles – but investigate the use of oils, herbs and crystals in conjunction with candles.

Crystals and Rocks

Crystals and rocks are often used as ‘ingredients’ in other spells. They are very easy to add to bottles, pouches, dolls and more. However, you can also use crystals in spell work solely on their own by adding them to your pillow, till, money box, plant pot, etc.

Their use goes much further than this, but that enters the realm of energy healing which is a part of many traditions and is a very dedicated and intensive practice all by itself, and too much to explain here.

Air

You can utilize the powers of air in a lot of ways. It’s usually good for cleansing spells – think sweeping with a ritual broom, burning incense (smoke=air, not fire), ringing bells or playing bowls, singing, using flags and wheels. Air methods tend to return quick results.

Earth

Earth brings slow results, but they tend to be larger. Earth practices include enchanting seeds that will bring you money as they grow, burying offerings in the Earth, making vessels and spells out of clay, or writing spells in the mud.

Fire

Fire can bring things into your life, but is much better used to get rid of them – for beginners, anyway. If there is anything in your life that you wish to get rid of, you can write or draw a representation of it and cast it into the fire to remove it.

Water

Water can take the longest time to bring you what you need. However, think of water pounding against a rock. Drips of water became rivers, became waterfalls. Water can often bring you the biggest results, but it may take a long time.

Water spells can include potions (see below), but can also include ritual baths, leaving offers in water, or giving up bad energy or habits to the ocean.

Bones

Bones are a contentious subject in witchcraft. Some people will never use them, some people’s practice is not complete without them.

Some uses for bones are:

 

  • Telling the future (casting bones or lots)
  • Housing the Spirit of the animal so you can work with them
  • Form parts of wands or ritual jewellery or headresses
  • Ingredients in pouches

 

Tarot, Runes and Ogham

You can use all of these fortune telling tools in spells, too! You can choose one of them that has a characteristic or represents an outcome that you’d like. So if you wanted a new job, you might choose the Ace of Pentacles. Then you could do any one of the following with it:

  • Use it to focus a candle spell
  • Add it to a pouch or bag spell
  • Add it to a jar spell
  • Use it in lieu of a sigil
  • Make a vision board around it
  • Even burn it! (You can get single Tarot cards for this purpose on eBay.)

 

Potions and Elixirs

Potion Magic used to be a lot more popular. Whilst elixirs, tisanes and tea blends are still popular for use on yourself, the masses of recipes of potions, philtres and similar recipes have all but died out. That’s because a lot of potion magic is only to be used in desperate circumstances, like love potions and curses. The reason so many old fashioned love potions are beyond creepy and controlling is that woman’s husband was her meal ticket. If he left her, not only would she be blamed, but she would be out of a house, food and her own family probably wouldn’t take her in. She had shamed them all. (Often through no actual fault of her own.)

So dousing  a lover or husband’s food with love potion made a lot more sense then, than it does now.

Thankfully, most of us don’t live in those circumstances any more, so a lot of philtre or potion use has died out. However, there are still some amazing things you can make to ingest yourself:

  • Tea blends
  • Tisanes (herbals teas)
  • Bath spells
  • Lunar or solar water
  • Herbal Oils

Spoken Magic

Spoken Magic can be long and complicated, or very short. It doesn’t have to rhyme (but it can) it doesn’t have to flow like poetry (but it can). You can use spoken incantation to help direct energy when you’re using other methods, but you can also use it on it’s own.

Some examples of spoken magic:

  • Affirmations
  • Words of power
  • Singing
  • Ritual Offerings
  • Wishes

You can even banish Spirit’s solely through your voice. Shouting ‘Leave!’ with the correct intention can be very powerful.

Written Magic

 

Written magic has existed since we could write. Many cultures view writing AS magic. Think about it – 26 (or thereabouts, depends on your alphabet) tiny squiggles can become anything when placed in the right order. Dumbledore was right about the power of words.

Written magic can include:

  • Petitions to Spirits
  • Magic squares
  • Words of power or protection
  • Wishes
  • Tattoos
  • Rune work

Bag and Pouch Magic

There is all kinds of bag magic – from mojo bags, to more modern spell envelopes. The main idea behind bag or pouch magic is that keeping a carefully curated selection of objects together for a certain time period will produce the effects that you want. A lot of bag magic produces indefinite spells  provided they are charged. Such bags usually grant the wearer protection, prosperity, luck or good health. However, there are bag magics wear a specific time limited spell is wanted – invisibility spells, hex breakers and the like.

Enchantments and Glamours

Enchantment covers a variety of spell types, but theme of the spells are pretty much the same. Enchantment covers a lot of the old folklore kind of witchcraft – hidden worlds, changing age, changing into different animals and so on.

Enchanting something fools the viewer into believing something is there when it is not, or isn’t there when it is, or is something completely different.

Think of the Harry Potter scene where Hermione explains that the ceiling of the Great Hall isn’t a real sky, it’s just enchanted to look that way.

Real enchantment can be done for fun, but they can also be useful pieces of magic. You can enchant jewelry, clothes or makeup to bestow certain personality traits upon you. You can enchant your witchy items to look normal if you’re fearful of discovery. The possibilities are just about endless.

5 Essential Oils to Target Anxiety and Stress

5 Essential Oils5 Essential Oils to Target Anxiety & Stress

 

Juggling a 9 to 5 work schedule and a healthy social and home life can be quite a task, and it can all get pretty stressful at times. While you can always sip on a cup of chamomile tea or take a warm bath to calm down your frazzled nerves, why not take it up a notch with some essential oil power?

Keep reading to discover the top 5 essential oils that work wonderfully when it comes to targeting stress and anxiety and find out quick ways to use them too!

 

Eucalyptus Oil

Eucalyptus oil is one of the best essential oils for sinus congestion, but not many people know it also works wonders when it comes to tackling anxiety and stress. This oil also tends to improve the flow of blood to the brain, which improves overall brain health.

 

Lavender Oil

Lavender oil is one of the best choices when it comes to any mental health concern thanks to its amazing calming and soothing properties. It has been found to exhibit nervous system restorative action, which in turn, brings about peace, better sleep and calms down nervous tension.

 

Vetiver Oil

Vetiver oil has been used in trauma patients since it has a sort of reassuring and grounding energy. When used in the right amount, it acts as a nervous system tonic, which can decrease jitteriness and hypersensitivity.

Chamomile Oil

Chamomile extracts have been found to work exceptionally well when it comes to reducing irritability, worry and stress, and helps benefit inner harmony! In fact, some studies have found that this essential oil has the potential to act as a moderately powerful natural antidepressant too!

 

Rose Oil

Rose essential oil, when used alone or in an essential oil blend, has the ability to reduce anxiety and stress quite well. In fact, in some cases, it has also been used as a natural remedy for severe panic attacks and shocks.

 

Using Essential Oils the Right Way!

Though essential oils do work wonders in reducing stress and improving mental health, it is also important to use them the right way to reap their maximum benefits. Here are some quick and actionable tips to use them.

  • Use a couple of drops of any of these essential oils to your bath water to get natural relief from stress.
  • Rubbing a few drops of the essential oil to your pillow can also help.
  • If you have an essential oil diffuser, you can use it as well.

How To Remove a Curse – Bath Edition!

How to Remove a Curse – with a Bath!

how to remove a curse bath edition

Baths (and showers!) are a great way to remove curses, negative energy and the Evil Eye.

Washing yourself with water is one of the easiest ways to cleanse yourself. With some additions, the process can be used to remove not only day to day negative crap, but some quite nasty things as well.

I’m going to share my go to recipes on how to remove a curse with you, below.

But I’ve Only Got a Shower!

You can put fresh or ground herbs in a cloth tea bag, or fresh or whole dried herbs into an organza bag – the ones that jewellery often comes in. Simply tie the bag to the shower nozzle to let the water run through it.

You can also make use of essential oils in the shower – add a few drops directly to the plug hole, and make sure the shower is warm. The oils will start to disperse into the air.

Safety Notes

Be very careful when using herbs and crystals. Make sure you check with a herbalist’s guide to make sure that you are using the right amounts of the right things. If you are pregnant, double and triple check what you can do. I’ve added warnings next to herbs that I know of, but don’t take anything you read on the Internet for gospel. Do your research.

Some crystals can be harmful, or ruined when added to water. I wrote a post about this here, and the free download contains the list of crystals.

Essential oils (and other oils) can make a bathtub or shower floor very slippery. Add very tiny amounts, and be extra careful when getting in and out. Make sure you wash the shower tray or bathtub out very well, as they can linger. Essential oils can also damage the skin if they are used in great amounts. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions, but normally you only need a few drops in a normal bath.

Basic Cleansing

It’s important to clean and cleanse regularly. Unwanted energy can get built up and clog up your system just the same as regular old dirt.

Essential Oil Mix

1 drop mint

1 drop eucalyptus

1 drop lime

1 drop grapefruit

Bath Mix

3 tablespoons of salt

Handful of mint

Half cup of lunar water

Evil Eye

The Evil Eye can be a lot of things – a simple curse, negative Spirit contact, or even just someone’s negative thoughts about you. They might not have meant to put the Evil Eye on you, but it sometimes happens.

Essential Oil Mix

1 drop mint

1 drop rosemary

1 drop cedarwood

1 drop sandalwood

Bath Mix

Handful of rosemary

Handful of mint

One whole dried chilli (not ground or flakes – you don’t want that around your naked body)

One cup salt

How to Remove a Curse

This is a technique based off an old folklore tidbit. I’ve no idea if it was actually used, but the technique of drawing the curse from you into something else is a common one.

It’s easier to draw a curse from yourself into something else that’s living, or to an effigy of yourself. But if you don’t want to pass the curse on, or haven’t prepared effigies or witch bottles in advance, you can try this out.

 

Draw a small amount of water, and add two cups of fresh milk to it. The fresher, the better. This is what the curse should jump into. Milk curdling around curses is an age old superstition, and some people thought it was the curse being absorbed into the milk instead of what it was intended to go after.

 

Before you step into the water, scrub yourself all over with a salt scrub made from salt, rosemary, mint and mugwort. Omit the mugwort if you’re pregnant or having menstrual issues. A cup of salt, a handful each of rosemary and mint, and a teaspoon or so of mugwort.

 

Get into the bath, and rub off most of the scrub. Visualize the curse leaving you and going into the milk. Quickly get out, drain the bath, and take a shower or quick bath in fresh water.

You can do this without a bath – simply mix a jug of water and milk and pour it over your head to rinse the scrub, then follow the other steps.

 

Make sure the milk is fully out of your hair – you don’t want the curse lingering around. Or milk, for that matter.

Anne Stokes Gothic Tarot Deck Review

Buy it here (affiliate): Anne Stokes Gothic Tarot Deck

If you love the gothic art of Anne Stokes, you’ll love this deck. The Anne Stokes Gothic Tarot Deck is a must for all the Darklings – or laspsed Darklings – of the world.

The Major Arcana and Court Cards are all individually illustrated with beautiful images.

This deck has it all! Angels, dragons, skeletons, swords – anything that you could want!

The pip cards are not individually illustrated, so I wouldn’t recommend this one for your first deck, but as a second or third deck, it’s fantastic. It’s also great to just look at – if you’re a fan of this art style (like I am), I’d recommend picking it up for the looks alone.

The backs of the cards have a wonderful kind of wax seal design.  The cards have intricate and beautifully rendered borders, and they’re just a joy to look at. The cards are a similar size to a normal pack of playing cards, and are reasonably sturdy.

It comes in a small fold-able cardboard box, with a LWB (Little White Booklet). I wouldn’t recommend that you learn Tarot straight from this booklet, as it is lacking in detail. However, as a memory aide it’s quite useful.

This is more a collector’s deck, than a reader’s deck, but what a collector’s deck it is!

Five Tips for Venus Retrograde

Venus RetrogradeHow to Make the Best of Venus Retrograde

Venus is one of the inner Planets, so She goes Retrograde quite often. She’s the ruler of relationships, but She also keeps a keen eye on your wallet. Here’s five tips to make the best of Venus Retrograde:

 

Don’t start any new relationships. Instead, focus on the ones you already have.

People will show you who they truly are during Venus Retrograde, so when they do, believe them! Don’t gloss over people’s worst points during this evaluation either. You don’t (and probably shouldn’t, unless it’s something truly grievous) need to bring your thoughts to the other person, or even end the relationship if you don’t want to.

The point is to truly assess what’s happening in the relationship, and set or reset boundaries if you need to. This goes for all kinds of relationships – friends, lovers, family, co-workers… If aren’t getting what you need from someone, consider pulling back, setting a boundary, or readjusting the way you think about a person. Sometimes your ‘best friend’ is better off as a small doses friend – and that doesn’t mean you did anything wrong!

Relationships change, and trying to keep something the way it was five, ten, two years ago only festers bad feelings.

Don’t make large purchases or impulse buys.

Instead, cull what you already own and sell it on eBay! People will be making impulsive moves in the realm of fashion and beauty during Venus Retrograde, so it’s a great time to make a few spare pennies by selling what you don’t want.

Whilst it’s a good time to reassess how you feel about your appearance, your fashion sense, your interior decorating, your garden etc, don’t fall into the trap of buying without trying. Let the idea of your new purchase sit for a few weeks, and then you’ll know if you’re truly interested in the actual thing, or just bored and want a change.

 

Move through creative blocks

Venus Retrograde will be throwing more blocks to your creativity, but that’s a good thing! During Venus Retrograde, you will be able to assess WHY you’re blocked – and finally do something about it. Searching for inspiration is also a great task during Venus Retrograde – your mind will constantly be distracted by pretty things, and firing on all cylinders.

Creating a vision board, ideas scrapbook or Pinterest Board is a great way to capture all of these thoughts and ideas whilst their plentiful, to ensure that you can use them later on. Actually finishing project may be more difficult during this time, and it’s not a good time to start something large. As with your fashion ideas, your mind will be prone to impulsive creative decisions that might not actually work down the line.

Like, uh, paring puke yellow with bright blue. Good job, me.

Show gratitude to who and what has helped you

In your haste to get rid of what is hindering you, don’t forget to be grateful and appreciative of what or who has helped you. It needn’t be a big move – a simple thank you note can mean the world to someone. Try also keeping a gratitude journal, or simply meditating on some of the things you are thankful for – from the sunset, to a pet, a friend or simply a piece of art that you like.

Be charitable

Venus Retrograde shows us what we don’t need, what we do need, and what we already have. Venus Retrograde is also a great time to give to charity, fund-raise, or volunteer. There are many programmes available for you to choose something close to your heart.

 

You can volunteer in a charity shop, or for a youth, disability or elderly program in your community. Or how about volunteering a few afternoons in a kennel? Or sharing and signing some important petitions? Or delivering leaflets in your local area? Or becoming a member of a community group?

 

If you’d rather give your money than time, you can make a regular or a one off donation to most major charities via PayPal or your credit card. Or some charities offer packages where you can buy a poor community a donkey or something.

 

Or, if money and time is tight, you can simply lend some money! I lend money to small businesses in impoverished, war-torn or otherwise afflicted communities. I don’t make any money from it, but what it means is that my £15 keeps going around and around, helping more and more businesses, people and communities – without me paying out £15 each month.  I do this through www.lendwithcare.org (not sponsored), but there are others that do this.

 

However you choose to help, know that it is always appreciated.
