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!!!

    Happy New Year! We have initiated a brand new cycle with fresh and fertile possibilities (and a lot fewer major transits) to engage with in 2022. The busiest planet this year is Jupiter, versus Saturn and Uranus the past couple of years, which is a massive (literally) refreshing energy that ushers in luck, optimism, expansiveness, and joviality. Here’s a quick astro recap to start the year to ensure solid understanding of planetary transits:

    Season’s greetings! We can look forward to enjoying the expansive and optimistic energy of Sagittarius most of the month, then will cap off the month (and the entire year) in solid, structural Capricorn energy. Although this month has a LOT of activity, it will feel lighter, more exciting, and more action-oriented, as we have Neptune and Chiron stationing direct, a solar eclipse that breaks up stagnant energy, and inner planets Mars and Mercury switching signs. One big retrograde to pay attention to is...
