*minimum of 4 hours if need be.

***To charge the herbs add them in a vessel according to the desired recipe (like the one above). Now using your hands mix the herbs together while focusing on your need for wealth and money and riches. See yourself already in possession of these blessings. Now move your hands to either side of the vessel and visualize a ball of green money attracting energy coming from your hands and forming around the vessel of herbs, say these or similar words:
“I charge you herbs of magick, herbs of power,
To bring wealth and riches in all its form,
As I do Will, so mote it be and it is so.”
Build more power by tensing all your muscles while visualizing your intent upon saying the above incantation, now push all this energy into the green ball of light by slowly releasing your muscles from your feet up, finally “push” this energy into the herbal mixture. You have just enchanted herbs with the purpose of attracting money.

Herb of the Month: Star Anise

Common name: Star Anise
Folk name: Chinese Anise
Parts used: leaves, oils, bark, seeds
Planet: Jupiter
Element: Air
Zodiac: Pisces, Sagittarius
Gender: Feminine
Goddess/ God: Buddha, Quan Yin
Medicinal uses: The fruits and foliage yield essential oil for medicinally promote appetite and digestion and to relieve chest complaints, rheumatism, and flatulence. Japanese Star Anise (Illicium anisatum) has cardamom-scented, poisonous fruits, used externally in Asian medicine. Its flower lacks scent and the leaves are a poison.
Folklore: The seed and pods are used as a spice in Asian cookery, notably as an ingredient of Chinese five-spice powder. The Japanese Star Anise is revered in Japan and planted near Buddhist temples, where the bark is burned as incense.
Magickal Effects: psychic awareness, calm, peace, luck
Magickal uses: Inhaling the scent of the dried fruits while sitting quietly can awaken your psychic abilities, allowing your subconscious to unlock its secrets. The Star Anise was made for incense with its pungent scent, especially incense used for meditation. The herb can also be used in luck spells especially in the form of a sachet; just add some of the strong smelling seeds/fruits in an orange sachet with the correct enchantments to unlock its luck attracting abilities (Your need and intent should be the enchantment let that energy flow into the star anise then carry them with you in the sachet.)

Knot Magick

Knot Magick:
“I’ll tie up my hopes and dreams to carry them with me”
This is one of my favorite types of spell casting. Knot magick is simple, inexpensive and can be used for any magickal need one can think of. Knot magick goes way back to at least 4,000 years, in fact cuneiform tablets were produced in the Near East describing various types of magick involving the use of knots* (“Earth Power” by Scott Cunningham pg.91)
The theory behind knot magick is that tying the knot can be a magickal act which brings into physical form an abstract idea, magickal intent, conception or thought.
  Essentially, you hold your cord (natural fibers and yarn work best), you calm your mind and focus on your intent, visualize your goal already coming to fruition, now hold this image as much as possible building energy by tensing all the muscles in your body. When you can no longer keep a clear image and you’ve built enough energy, tie the knot while simultaneously relaxing all your muscles. Congratulations you’ve just casted a knot spell.
Like all simple spells you can build upon this for more specific energies and better concentration on your magickal intent. This can be done by using various colors of strings to symbolize specific purposes, for example: Pink for love and compassion, Red for strength and courage, Yellow for luck and critical thinking, etc. Whatever the color means to you then that is how you should use it symbolically towards your magickal purpose. Here is a simple knot spell I created to bring Luck:
Lucky Bracelet Spell
Items Need:
-Yellow Yarn
-Lavender oil (I find that patchouli works great as well but if neither are available olive oil is fine)
Instructions: First make sure you will be undisturbed for a few minutes. Now quite your mind, some find taking a relaxing bath or shower helps clear your mind, but just taking a moment to breathe and still your thoughts is enough. Hold the lavender oil and give it a whiff, think of your goal at hand and dab the yarn with some of the oil. Now hold the yellow yarn, know that yellow represents luck and critical thinking. Stare at the yarn and begin to focus on your intent, visualize yourself being happy, and living fulfilling moments in your day to day life, “feel” the luck already with you, you can accomplish anything because your are so lucky. Now as you are visualizing this, build up personal energy, tense your muscles slowly saying these or similar words three times with feeling: “Luck and Happiness is always with me, I am lucky!” now tie the yarn around your left wrist (the left hand symbolically represents receiving energy), as you tie the knot say the words again for three knots releasing all the energy you built up while doing so. You’ve completed the spell! Now when you really need a boost of luck or you need to think on your feet just sniff the bracelet and let your spell do its work.
**Note: if bracelet gets too dirty just cut off and keep in safe place DO NOT UNTIE KNOTS! You can also burn or bury the cord to make sure the knots never come undone.

Self = All

As well as cultivating a healthy relation with yourself and your power, you must cultivate a healthy relation with others and their powers. You would be surprised as to how much we all influence each other even in the most seemingly arbitrary ways. Which brings me to an important Occult law:

Self = All
(image borrowed from:


You are beautiful just for being you, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Be good to yourself and compassion for others will grow. Take care of Self and see Self everywhere.

We should be collective individuals instead of being individually collected. Stand for others, yes, but stand for you first. You are what is in your life, whatever takes place in your daily trials takes place within you and becomes a part of you. Once you start cultivating a love of Self, you begin to understand pain, strife and what it takes to become happy. You then understand struggle and will see that same struggle in others who share this life all around you…and you will love them and help them, because in doing so you are loving and helping yourself.

Divination Stones

Divination Stones

I am not usually one to dabble or work within the arts of divination. I use my tarot cards for spell craft, and runes for inscription. I mean I've learned a bit of astrology but again this mostly works in spell craft for me. I never have been totally interested in divination but then earlier this month I was looking over one of Scott Cunningham's published spell books, "Earth Power" I believe. Under the section of Stone Magick Cunningham talks about how stones (and indeed all things) have a certain frequency to their vibrational tone and how based on these frequencies, one could determine the proper magickal use of a stone. One of the examples was the making of Divination stones. To determine the vibrational frequency of a stone, hold the stone in your projective hand (the hand you use to write) and hold it tight, feel the stone. Notice the weight, the texture, the temperature of the stone. Now hold the stone loosely in your fist and be still. You should feel a pulsating within your palm and fingers. If the pulsating is quick and strong it is a high vibrational stone. If the pulsating is slow and subtle, it is a low vibrational stone. This may seem to take a long time but once you know what the vibrations feels like, it should take only seconds. Now that that’s settled, let’s talk about how this works for divination. Take a light colored high vibrational stone, this is "Yes". Now a dark colored low vibrational stone, this is "no". And a uniquely colored or shaped mid-vibrational (meaning having a frequency between the other two stones), this is the "indicator". Hold the stones in your hands focus mentally on your question and roll the stones like dice. The stone closest to the "indicator" is the answer.

So I was intrigued, none the less, and went about my stone supplies to find the needed vibrational stones:

The first to the left is a high vibrational stone which mean "yes". The middle is a medium vibrational stone which is the "indicator". The last to the right is a low vibrational stone that means "no".

I then set about asking the stones three questions a week. I would write down the question and date/time it. I would write the outcome as well along with date and time. Its seems the stones are very accurate (in their own way), and the outcomes seem to be dependent on the intensity of the question being asked. Even though these stones are just for yes and no questions they can reveal a great deal about many things. As a tip, the proximity of all three stones can give a more detailed answer. The answers I am getting seem to have a certain pattern that involves the energy of time, space and self. Definitely my new favorite divination project, the results are scary accurate.

***But always remember: “There is no such thing as coincidence only inevitability.” and “Once you know your destiny, you always have a choice.”

Happy Casting!
