Spellwork Sundays: Banishing with Bay Leaves, April 21st, 2019

 Spellwork Sundays

April 21st, 2019 - BANISHING WITH BAY LEAVES

 

Hey there! For this Spellwork Sunday I wanted to talk about the magick behind Bay Leaves, also known as Laurel Leaves. Bay leaves have numerous uses, and they are a most powerful tool in aiding communication to your deities, cleansing a space, breaking curses and banishing negativity. Today I want to focus on the aspect of banishing negativity, which is something we can all do at home.


Time / Planetary Hours:

  • Just before, or on the New Moon.
  • Any day or time will work which is why this can be done on a Sunday, but if you can, try to do this on a Saturday as this day is associated with the planet/ god Saturn, and is often related to channeling banishment, changes, motivation, and reincarnation. Saturday is actually named after the planet!

Altar Decor Setup & Suggestions

You can create a simple altar for this, or go out and make it as lavish as you want. Whatever holds importance for your spell is up to you!

  • Dried bay leaves. You can get these from any grocery store in the spice section.
  • A black or white candle 
  • A burn safe plate or bowl, try and abalone shell or copper bowl.
  • A pen, or a marker of your choice

Simple Steps and Procedures:

  • Light the candle using a match, and place on your right side.
  • On the bay leaves, write out things you want to banish. Be very specific, as to not confuse your wish with general sweeping statements. For example: “negative thought patterns about X” “obsessive tendencies with X” instead of "negativity" or "bad vibes"
  • Take the leaf and light with the flame from the candle, saying out loud what you have written. For example: “I hereby release all negative thought patterns I have about X”, or “I banish all obsessive tendencies I have over X"
  • Drop the leaves onto the burn safe bowl or plate, and visualize the attachments being broken.
  • After you are done banishing these energies, restore a chill or peaceful vibe back to your space by singing, putting on some music you can dance to, or burning lavender!


       Celebrate! You are now free from these energies!!!

    Full Moon in Libra: Restoring Order, April 7th, 2020

    All in all, this is a Moon that wants to aid and assist in feeling better supported. Libra is a Cardinal air sign heavily associated with relationships and many other aspects of Venus. I want to talk for a moment about relationships. There’s a lot of them being tested right now in the world. Some partners are suddenly finding themselves working from home with a spouse. Others are doing what they can to cope with a loss of joint income, and are trying to pick up the slack for their mate. Children are home from school and now need tending to. Some single or “limbo” relationship people are realizing they really wish they had someone to depend on. Regardless of your situation... exceed t

    Crystals carry a lot of power. These earthen tokens of sacred geometry are said to hold the energies and secrets or the universe, and can also be charged, like any talisman, to hold the intention of the practitioner or wearer. These sparkling gem treasures are gifts to us from the Earth and can be used in a plethora of ways, and since the collective world is experiencing a vibrational and energetic shift due to quarantine and the covid-19 pandemic, many are searching for new ways to ground and center themselves while dealing with the emotional, physical, and financial upheaval that comes with this crisis.

    April proves to be a mighty and potent month ahead. The Sun will be spending the first portion of the month in the sign of Aries. This brings about a noticeable shift energetically, encouraging everyone to be self-sufficient. Jupiter will make a rare conjunction to Pluto, shining a light on intense and often brutal topics. Pluto is the lord of the underworld and rules everything from death and destruction to regeneration. Pluto's keyword is evolution. Both physically and spiritually. Pluto will be meeting up with Jupiter in Capricorn, amplifying the world's current conditions. This is a once in about every twelve-year aspect, and promises even more significant upheavals in the weeks ahead. While some astrologers suggest this is the "kiss of death," I see things a bit differently. It's my job to inform readers and clients that the "stars impel, they do not compel." AKA; the astrology provides the framework to have experiences; it doesn't always dictate our lives. It merely provides the atmosphere...
