Spellwork Sessions: Protection Spell Jar for Banishing and Binding

July 11, 2023 0 Comments

Hey all! For this edition of Spellwork Sunday I wanted to talk about magickal jar spells. Jar Spells have been used for centuries, and remnants of jar spells have been found amongst ancient European ruins for sometime. While they routinely have gone through bouts of popularity and use, there is no doubt that they can be an effective method for money and love spells, sex magick, charming a certain someone in particular, binding spells, breaking curses, and even yes, hexes.

Mercury Retrograde: Tools for Protection

Mercury Retrograde: Tools for Protection

September 09, 2022 0 Comments

What does Mercury Retrograde mean for us astrology nerds? In a nutshell, it means that all the correspondences and symbolic meanings mentioned above that represent Mercury can also act... a little backwards. Travel or business plans may get loused up. Verbal fights or misunderstandings can occur. Contracts can default or money can be spent unwisely. Technology can fail us. All these things changing at once can disrupt every day life, which is not ideal for anyone living a 21st century experience.

Did you know that we're all Magicians whether we practice magic or not? Magicians shape the world with focused and often repetitive rituals. A ritual is simply a set of actions that are performed regularly, like say, brushing your teeth, or going to bed at a certain time. The result of your rituals can affect your life in both positive and negative ways, depending on what your repeated actions cultivate. So, it is best to be focused and aware of how you are shaping your own world.

Spellwork Sessions: The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram

September 21, 2020 0 Comments

The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP) is a common ritual amongst practitioners of magickal systems including Golden Dawn and Thelema. This ritual is a powerful two-part ceremony that grounds the mind and ignites our ethereal vibrations to connect us with our higher selves and with guides such as archangels. This process eliminates "impure magnetism" that clogs up our aura and energy centers, and by ridding ourselves of negative mental, emotional, and spiritual clutter, we allow space for fresh positive energies and realizations to grow and thrive. In doing this we also reinforce our connection to all beings higher than us on an ethereal level such as guides, ancestors and angels...

March is the Month of the Vernal Equinox when we leave the long dormant days of Winter behind, and celebrate the return of the dawning Springtime Sun. This story has played out over time through the tales of Jesus’ Resurrection, Inanna’s underworld descent and subsequent Springtime return, and countless other stories illustrating the seasonal transition from a period of Winter death back to a fertile Spring of new life, hope, and rebirth. This is a time to celebrate the bounty of the sun! Oddly enough, many of us are feeling anxious about the symbolically related Corona Virus. Let me shed some light...

Spellwork Sessions: Love Magick

February 07, 2020 0 Comments

Love Spells are some the of most sought after and popular requests when it comes to magic ritual and guidance. Whether it be a return-to-me spell, attraction, fertility, or self-love; Throughout the ages nothing has as much staying power as a good ole love spell. For this reason there’s an almost infinite number of ways you can call in the frequency of love using magic (ritual, intention, and action). Each culture or tradition has it’s own methods for attracting love. As with all magic, your intention and focus is everything.

Spellwork Sessions: Cleansing with Mint and Cinnamon for the New Year

Spellwork Sessions: Cleansing with Mint and Cinnamon for the New Year

January 08, 2020 0 Comments

I don’t know about everyone else but the shift of the new year and decade in Gregorian calendar has been intense to put it lightly. Intuitively I’ve noticed a lot of people are either sick right now, hermiting themselves, or making huge promises of “new year, new me.” All these responses are ok; however it is the dead of winter right now in the northern hemisphere, and it’s ok the rest, hibernate, and be in seclusion. With that said, perhaps it’s time to pay attention to what we can release, cleanse, and remove from our spaces, body, minds, and spirits in order to

December 10, 2019 0 Comments

Mojo bags are from Black American hoodoo culture and can be used for a wide variety of intentions including but not limited to protection, love, and good luck. Contrary to popular belief, Hoodoo is a sacred practice that blends many ancient African religions. In short, it is what many enslaved Africans in the Americas and the Caribbean practiced after they were stolen from their land. This tradition runs deep in my Ancestry and I’m happy to share with you how to create your own mojo bag for this month’s theme of protection.
