I really like this book because it has color photographs of each of the 300 plants included in the book. The book is divided into three parts; Enchanting Herbs, Mystical Flowers and Other Magical Plants.

The Wytche's Cupboard

January 22nd 2009 20:49

I've got exciting news, my friend Michelle, AKA White Willow, has just opened an online pagan shop. Her shop is called The Wytche's Cupboard.

Michelle used to live just a 1/2 hour drive from my house. But in the past year she has embarked on a new journey, a new career, a new life. She now lives just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. Michelle was mentioning to me a few weeks back, how one of the ONLY pagan shops in the Charlotte area was closing. Sad news, that such a large community isn't filled with tons of pagan stores.

Michelle has been thinking of starting her own shop and finally took the plunge with the opening of The Wytche's Cupboard. I wish her all the luck in her new endeavor. Check out The Wytche's Cupboard when you get a chance.

The site has just recently gone online, but Michelle has plans to be adding lots of goodies in the near future. Right now the merchandise that is listed on The Wytche's Cupboard includes candle spell kits, pagan bumper stickers, tarot decks and loose herbs.

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you know about the latest article I've written for the Suite101 website.

The article, Magical Properties of Crystals; discusses the metaphysical characteristics associated with 10 varieties of quartz.

Crystals and gemstones can be used for a variety of magical purposes. Learn how to use gemstones in the quartz family to enhance magical rituals.

See my companion article, Gemstone Magic and Crystal Healing, for methods on how to properly cleanse and charge gemstones before using them in magical rituals.

Take care,

Magical Candle Colors

July 25th 2008 17:23

These magical candle colors are from the book 'Earth, Air, Fire & Water' by Scott Cunningham. Pick the appropriate candle color according the type of spell magick you are going to perform.

* RED - Maintaining health; bodily strength; physical energy; sex; passion; courage; protection, and defensive magic. This color is the element of Fire. Throughout the world, red is associated with life and death.

* PINK - Love; friendship; compassion relaxation. Pink candles can be burned during rituals designed to improve self-love. They're ideal for weddings and for all forms of emotional union.

* ORANGE - Attraction, energy, increasing personal physical energy. Burn to attract specific influences or objects.

* YELLOW - Intellect; confidence; divination; communication; eloquence; travel; movement. Yellow is the color of the element of Air. Burn yellow candles during rituals designed to heighten your visualization abilities. Before studying for any purpose, program a yellow candle to stimulate your conscious mind. Light the candle and let it burn while you study. If you are in the performing arts, yellow is a great color to burn before each event.

* GREEN - Money; prosperity; employment; fertility; healing; growth; abundance. Green is the color of the element of Earth. Burn when looking for a job or seeking a needed raise.

* BLUE - Healing; peace; patience; psychic realm, happiness. Blue is the color of the element of Water. Blue is also used in the realm of sleep and of twilight. If you have trouble sleeping, charge a small blue candle with the visualization of yourself sleeping through the night. Burn it a few moments before you get into bed, then extinguish its flame. Blue candles can also be charged and burned to awaken the psychic mind.

* PURPLE - Power; healing severe diseases; spirituality; meditation; religion. Purple candles can be burned to enhance all spiritual activities, to increase your magical power, and as a part of intense healing rituals, in combination with blue candles.

* WHITE - Protection; purification; all purposes. White contains all colors. It's linked with the Moon. White candles are specifically burned during purification and protection rituals. If you're to keep but one candle on hand for magical purposes, choose a white one. Before use, charge it with personal per and it will work for all positive purposes.

* BLACK - Banishing negativity, absorbing negativity, transition; the ending of something that is the beginning of something else. Black is the absence of color. In magic, it's also representative of outer space. Despite what you may have heard, black candles are burned for positive purposes, such as casting out baneful energies or to absorb illness and nasty habits.

* BROWN - Burned for spells invoking animals, usually in combination with other colors. A brown candle and a red candle for animal protection; brown and blue for healing, and so on.
