Magickal Remains

Dear Reader: Happy Earth Day! Welcome back to another post in this your magickal gazette. I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend as well as (and hopefully) nice weather in your part of the world.

Today’s topic dear reader, is one I have been putting off, but I think it is time I post it. Enjoy!

Magickal Remains. What to do after the magick its done, the candles and assorted magickal tools are spent and all that we have left is the “remains” as witness to our spiritual work.

Candles is the first on the list. Some people believe that burying wax would be the appropriate thing to do. Others feel that the wax that was left over from the candle should be kept in place on their altars or chosen place for burning candles until their spiritual work manifests.

The reality of candles used as a conduit of the personal petition,  it’s that once the candle is burnt, the wish has gone into the realm of Goddess/Universal Spirit, taking with it your faith in the outcome. Once there, the work to be done its theirs. (Here I have to add, that magick without physical efforts fizzles out or does not materialize) The manifestation is in process and the physical vessel has done its job, therefore obsolete.  The hardened wax is collected and placed in a brown paper bag. The ones for sandwiches are perfect. (but if you are out of any brown bags, then any small plastic bag is ok if nothing else is available) I do have to add this too: If the work is one for un-hexing, or strong protection, etc, then add a bit of salt to the bag. For added protection. Once you do that, dispose of it in the collective trash bins (if you live in an apartment complex) or the outside trash bin of your home. That is all.

Other magickal paraphernalia, will be disposed of as well. Easier with natural conduits of magick, as for example water, salt. Water and salt will be disposed of, through your kitchen drain or bathroom. Just run some water from the faucet while you dispose of both.

The incense ashes are disposed of in your trash can. If you have used powdered incense burnt on the instant charcoal tables, then make sure that it is all spent and cold before disposing of it. Same for incense cones and incense sticks. All goes into the trash.

If you have a favorite dish for your candles, and like to re-use for all your magickal work, then a good cleaning is called for. Once is cleaned, spray the dish with a bit of your blessing water/blend etc. This helps to cleanse the vibrational level and makes it ready for the next time you need to use it.

Lovely yellow flowers

If you had flowers on your altar that were specially for your work, let them stay until they dry up. Once that happens dispose of them right away. Do not keep a dry petal of leaf. Just throw them out.

Quartz, stones etc. These depending of the work can be kept or disposed of. Some tumbled stones can be disposed of into the earth (garden or potted plants/flowers) if, that is that the work calls for. Some of the stones can be carried with you, in your purse, your pocket, a charm etc. Until you see the work manifested. Then you either keep them or dispose of them. Otherwise, they are cleansed properly, i.e. Placed on a windowsill to be cleansed with sunlight. Or placed in a dish with some salt, so that the salt absorbs whatever energies it has collected. If you have chosen to place them in water to be cleansed, make sure it is practical to do so. Some quartz, cannot be cleansed this way as they dissolve. Research your type of stone and how to cleanse them properly.

Altar cloth. If you have one in particular that is used often, then hand wash (if small enough) or throw in the washer if too big. Add a bit of blessed water together with your laundry detergent. To not only clean in the physical but as well as in the spiritual. You can also, once is dry, prepare by ironing your altar cloth and spray with lavender blessed water or rose-water etc. This way, you infuse your cloth lovely magickal power.

If you use wands, bells, chimes etc. Cleanse these as well. Pass some incense around them and/or spray them as well with your blessed water after each spiritual work.

Altar, or place/space where you conduct magickal work the most in your home. This is the center of your spiritual work. Where it all happens! This has to be cleansed at the least twice per month or if you constantly conduct magickal work, then weekly is best.

Don’t dwell on the fact that you are disposing of items used for magick once you are done with them. Don’t think your wish won’t manifest just because you did not hold on to it, until the magick manifested. As you already know, or should know if you don’t yet. All things that have no further use and left sitting on a place, corner, surface etc. collect all sorts of energies over time. It is best to clean the space and clear the vibes.

Once the connection is made from the physical world we live in to the Universal flow of magic, then the tool has served its purpose. We give thanks to Earth and elements for having played a part in the ritual. Whether formal or informal. We now this is but the beginning, and the work in the physical is barely started as faith is powered by the action/s we take, with the knowledge that what we ask for will manifest in one way or another.

It is important to keep our altar, physical tools and vibrational level in optimum condition. By keeping magickal items in one place, organized and ready for next time we need them, we can concentrate and focus on what is important: Our magickal work.

Keep in mind that the important thing is not to lose yourself in the details. It is energy for magick after all, you are garnishing for your outcome. Go with the flow!

Working your Magick

Dear reader: Welcome back to another installment of this magickal newsletter.

Through the years, I have come to realize that to many; a Witch (whether woman or man) relays much on physical items to be able (so many think) to materialize the desired outcome. Or that the beginning of learning your spiritual path must be done utilizing an assortment of stones, wands, and what not!

The reality is sort of split between the conceived idea of what a witch does to the reality of what a witch really does. To confine magick to physical items only is to confine oneself to a finite way of doing things. In reality magick is infinite. It is after all the ability to harness universal energies (which are infinite) and create the desired outcome. Tools or no tools.

If what you as a witch like, is to immerse yourself in formal ritual, with the chanting, and the incense, the quartz! etc. then do so, but do so with heart. If you what you love is lighting a solitary candle, concentrating on your personal desire, focusing your will and then letting go and just go about your day. Then, excellent, but do so with conviction.

Whatever your inclination, follow-up on what you have done. If there is something you desire that requires you to chant a certain verse several days in a row. Keep at it. Don’t fall into the trap of complacency. Magick is actual work. Is not just wishing and then thinking things will fall on your lap -although sometimes this might happen I will not deny. But here we are talking about serendipity, or some serious overdue good karma that took years to come crashing your way, or perhaps Goddess, an angel or even a demon is looking out for you….. but I digress – most of the time you need to be an active and willing participant of what you want to manifest.

What I mean by the above is this. You want a job. You have a nifty spell for it. You do your magickal thing, and then you get your magickal self moving. Actually looking for a job, not just expecting a friend is going to call out of the blue to offer one up.

I must add, although it must sound like an oxymoron, magick is work but is also spontaneous. If you have an urgent need to perform magick, and you think you need, but do not have that certain plant that its only found in the wilds of the amazon jungle. Which can be bought only a few times a year, thus you give up in despair because that is not available. Or the moon is not right, or your in-laws are visiting…Stop yourself right there! You have what matters the most. Your own self. Your need to create a change. Wait for the in-laws to go to sleep or go out so you have time alone. If herbs are important to you, improvise with a substitute. If the day is not correct, then look up the best planetary influence and if all that fails, remember something even more important. Your need is urgent, thus an emergency, thus, do what thou will! Imagination, paired up with strong desire and belief in the outcome, that’s what matters.

GoodWitch

Do we ever stop learning? No, the older I get, the more I realize the learning is not done. There are lots of things one can still learn. New ways to materialize the sometimes impossible into this physical world we live in.  We would be doing a disservice to ourselves, if we were to think we know “everything.” There is always something new to learn, something new to absorb and a new way of seeing things, life, ourselves, etc. but this is true for everyone. Witch or not.

Do we put on our “Witch hat” only when its convenient, and necessary? I would say no, but I am talking from my own life experience. I am a witch, is what I am. Day or night, asleep or awake. It is inherent in me. The beauty of it, is blending both my everyday life with my magickal life. Knowing that my life is more harmonious because of it. I bring the best of being a witch into the everyday and I learn from the everyday so that I do not take myself too seriously or think I am above reproach. Ultimately I am a human being, and like everyone else, I am walking this human journey along with everyone.

Magick itself is neither black nor white. Light or dark. Magick as I said is energy. Universal. It is the person that is harnessing said energy that will make of it, what he or she will. It is about personal choices, our own moral compass, and knowing that every action has a reaction.

Although magick is beautiful, mysterious, and other worldly, I know the danger of  every day practice is taking it for granted. We must remind ourselves of that wonder we felt when we first discovered our spiritual journey. The awe, the connection of the divine and ourselves. We must keep it well in our hearts. For this is the core of magick on a personal level. To believe in what we do, and that what we do, creates a change.

It is this wonder, that makes magick special. The belief that anything and everything its possible.

Autumns Days

Victorian_woman_at_writing_desk-228x221Dear Reader: I hope I find all in good cheer. November is almost gone and today we celebrate Thanksgiving. If you like me; find yourself with a bit of time, while the food is ready and the relatives arrive; then I invite you for a quick read.. go grab a cuppa, sit back and chill for a bit. Enjoy!

PUBLIC HAPPENINGS

Weather has changed to cooler days and colder nights.  Samhain, our beautiful celebration has  passed and here we are, at almost at the end of November. Autumn although late this year, it’s finally felt with is windy days, and preparations for the approaching holidays . Thanksgiving the holiday that marks the onslaught holiday shopping madness, brings for a short while at least, a sort of respite before the rush.

funnyAlthough Thanksgiving is not a celebration that  requires us to spend a lot of money, and is not as much publicized as it predecessor  Halloween or its follower Christmas,  it does require for us to put our “chef” cap and think of ways of cooking a diversity of dishes that are not only enjoyable, but also  money and time savers.  Some, who  might have company during Thanksgiving celebration, have as well to prepare their homes to receive guests (be it family or friends) plus various other activities that are part of the family routine. To keep sane during these last months of the year, we have to strive and find “me” time.  Even if squeezed in the early morning before everyone gets up to start the day or at night, when everyone else has retired for day. It requires a bit of strategy thinking on your part, but it can be done. Think of it as a “must” have time-off for yourself, remember your sanity depends on it, if you are to survive the “holiday” season.

THE MAGIC OF THE SEASON

Yes, we are still in the season of Autumn, no matter what advertisers want to make us think with their “winter-like” backgrounds and stores filled to the brim with Winter items and holiday cheer.

Autumn IS a very magical time of the year. Leaves change color, mornings are filled with a crispy sort of air. Days are starting to grow shorter and shorter and we can enjoy hot drinks in the comfort of home.  It is a time that invites reflections on the past months. Where we are at this point of our lives, what we achieved so far.

If you like taking walks in the park or around your neighborhood, this is a good time to collect acorns, pine cones and dry leaves fallen from near by trees.  I have many things I made when my sons were toddlers and others I made for myself through out the years. For me, it signifies not only shared memories but a bit of Autumn that I got to keep through things I made with the items collected from nature through out the years.3_leaves

I refuse to get into the Yule/Christmas-y sort of mood at this time of year. I want to enjoy Autumn, to be able to appreciate the changes from hot weather to suddenly cold, is like only yesterday I was wearing summer-y, light clothing and today a sweater! (which happens to be true where I live) this is why I cherish these short-lived days. I am a coffee lover and in between I cheat on coffee with my love of tea.. This time of year I can enjoy both, with my morning coffee and afternoon tea time. Baking is as well and important part of my life. My waistline may not appreciate it, but my well-being depends on it! Baking is like therapy to me, and I enjoy this as well during the Autumn days.  Now I can see as well the fruits of my labor on my balcony potted garden. Autumn flowers are in bloom, no longer do they drip listlessly from all that blustery summer sun, now they show their beautiful lush leaves and newly sprung buds or flowers. So dear reader; ask yourself what is not to like about Autumn?

As I am winding down preparing to close this week’s newsletter, I wonder dear reader, where might you find yourself while you read my musings? Are you perchance a traveler of the wide roads, taking a deserved break in a far from home Diner, sitting at a booth, with smart phone or lap computer at hand, while you sip a cup of coffee? Are you a housewife, taking a few minutes respite perhaps in your room,  with your feet up, resting on near-by chair? Are you a single parent, struggling to make ends meet, grateful of a few minutes break? A student or a teacher? Nurse, or nurturer? Whomever you are, and wherever you might find yourself at this moment, I want to say thank you for reading this humble offering, for taking the time to read through it. Perhaps I might leave you with a smile on your face, a thought in your mind. If I have, then my job is done for the moment.  I give thanks for that and for you. I wish you a beautiful Thanksgiving, may it be filled with laughter, good food, good companionship. Whether a dinner of one or many.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Samhain

Victorian_woman_at_writing_desk-228x221Samhain…

The veil of the world of the living and the ones that have passed beyond it, its thin and their spirits are invited to visit with us. Although many believe the veil opens just a few days before Samhain until the first days of November, the veil is thin since the beginning of the month of October until around the second week of November. Samhain is perfect for divination and it seems as if our minds are more receptive at this time. Receiving messages in dreams, thru vision work and meditation.


It is a good time for reflection. The energies around us vibrate with the power this month seems to bring in its wake. These spiritual forces reminds us of the mysteries of life, death, and our connection to all that lives in this planet. Whether human, animal or nature.various-wiccan-images-paganism-17950593-985-1515


Becoming attuned to our own inner frequency which connects to the ones outside our own, is to connect to the never-ending march of time, to the magic which is all around us. It is a blessing that we must cherish, as we walk the journey of the human soul.


Happy Samhain!

The Turning of the Season

Victorian_woman_at_writing_desk-228x221Dear reader: Welcome back. Finally! September is here. A couple more weeks and we are rid of the summer season. Earth prepares in its own way for the next season to come.

We prepare for Autumn as well. We start to make small changes.  Perhaps putting away summer clothing or even decorations that reflected the summer days. Now we can look forward to cooler weather, shorter days and cozy nights. Although the warm days are still felt the days are shorter now, the heat starts to subside by evening hours which  is a nice break we welcome.

This month started out with a bang! We had a new Moon in Virgo last Thursday. A Solar eclipse to make it more interesting and of course we are now in the midst of a Mercury retrograde.

sunAlthough we have days ahead filled with squares and oppositions we also have Trines, Conjunctions, and Sextiles. So not all is lost or doomed to failure. It is always good to look for and find the bright side of things.

You can plan accordingly if you wish to create, change, start etc., any project or goal. Depending on the planetary hour and which planets are in accord for your spiritual work.

Magickal work is ideally conducted at the optimum hours, and correct astrological influence/days. Of course when one needs to work magick, one does not wait until the right ‘alignment’ comes along. We must do with what we have at hand; at any given notice.

There is no magickal formula or words that can be said in the face of a square or opposition that will make the planets move aside so that you can go your merry magickal way and do your ‘thing.’ That is  a waste of time. Why? The planets are going through what the natural flow of the Universe dictates. They do not have special ‘feelers’ that know when people are doing magick and need a bit of clearance for the work to be done. They are not entities, but planets. Doing what they were meant to do, for thousands of eons.

B-witch 2So lets say you need to perform magickal work. How will this be achieved in the midst of a Square for example? Squares are difficult and challenging since it creates resistance between two planets. The positive side of a Square (yes it does have one) is that it points out where a person can see the block or problem (whatever goes wrong during a square personally) and realize where positive changes can be made. For example if someone needs to protect in the midst of Squares and Opposition, the personal petition paper must contain a soothing astrological element, which could be the Moon for example, Also the person’s astrological sign, and a sigil of protection (the pentagram for example). Adding as well the symbol for a planet which has a compatible element to at least one of the planets that are in Opposition or Square. So if you have a challenge with a Water element planet you will use an Earth element planet symbol to balance the work and ground it.

Prepare by creating sacred space. A meditation before starting the work its ideal. It grounds your mind and your resolve. You create a shield around you. Be firm in your magickal intent…meaning, you believe that what you are about to work on spiritually, will become in the physical.

magicianEmpower your work even more by making or putting together, something which to you represents your magickal intent. Place your petition in a charm, or bless something that means protection to you personally. Add more power to the work with candle magick. The list goes on. Your own creativity in the matter and that which comes from the heart is what will make it yours.

What I want to convey, is that there is always a way in which one can utilize energies to one’s benefit. Sometimes too if we can, just by waiting out until the astrological elements fit our work, another way of working on our goal might be found. The point is to utilize what knowledge we have, tools at our disposal and a little ingenuity to find different “roads” shall we say to manifest the magick into something tangible.

Don’t let the Oppositions, Squares and retrogrades scare you into a corner of immobility. If really nothing can be done, then time is well spent by just meditating, or organizing your magickal area, cleaning your magickal tools. Perhaps make something new for your altar, or buy something that will enhance the beauty of your personal sacred space. Write on your personal/magickal journal. Or just relax. Do nothing, take walks. See what interesting things you might find while walking out in nature. Time is never wasted if we open our minds to the endless flow and possibilities of the Universe.

josephine wall crownWell dear reader, I have reached the end of this week’s Witch’s gazette.  I always wonder if I have left something worthwhile for you to ponder. At the least I hope, it will open a door in your mind to embark upon your own journey of discovery. May your wanderings always bring you back here weekly, to peruse the aisles of my humble newsletter.

I hope to see you next week! same place, same time!

Mystery and Magick of Blue

Victorian_woman_at_writing_desk-228x221Dear reader: Welcome to another of my magickal newsletters. I hope everyone has been well and that Summer season has not put a damp in the general enjoyment of life.

I have been thinking on how colors affect not only a single life but a culture. Take blue for example. Blue has been used by many cultures around the world. I am not saying it is only true for modern times, but for centuries before.  From the southern part of Spain to small towns in Mexico, this is a color that has deep roots in folk magic.

blue-and-white-flowers-wallpaperBlue has been used to paint from front doors to window shutters or trims around a house. The use of this color was not only for decoration  but for powerful mystical significance. Blue has been used as a very simple yet powerful form of protective magic against the “evil eye” and negative energies.

If painting a door in blue or trims of the house is out of the question, we can still be creative as to how to incorporate it; in our personal “universe” and the surrounding area like garden, exterior and interior walls.

You don’t have to break the bank to add this power color to your home and your magickal practice. With a little creativity and a focused intention you can make blue part of your life.

For the house there are ways to incorporate the color. From adding blue flowers to the garden, blue ornaments, or blue wind chimes.

door-goal-house-entrance-blue-wood-painting-doorsThe interior perhaps can be done in shades of light blue for a room, or a blue fabric cover for the magickal altar. Blue stones in a container of water placed close to the front door creates a powerful protection charm. Blue curtains in a room, to protect from outside negative frequencies.

Blue is a widespread way of protecting self from negative energy. With its soothing shades it has been used in jewelry as well, for its powerful magical property. One of the most popular and that which springs to mind right away is Turquoise.  In some parts of the world for example, wearing this stone helps in guarding off the evil eye and repels bad luck. it is a powerful magickal stone. You can make small charms, or jewelry set in your favorite medium. If you like to make your own jewelry then you can incorporate blue glass or plastic beads. They will have the same magickal effect as it is the color and the intention that matters, not so much the material.

blue_flower-normal5.4Then we also have protection charms made of fabric and assorted personal choice items that can be carried either in a purse, pocket, backpack, etc! The charm can be sewn around with small blue beads charged for protection for added power. A blue purse, blue comb, blue blankets! and the list goes on, the creative is limitless!

When did the practice of using blue with a mystical significance was started?  It is not  known for certain.  Although it seems that it has its beginnings in the shores of the Mediterranean, I personally think it goes back to Goddess. It makes sense to me that blue is one of her power colors. Blue for her universal power, limitless and mysterious. Like the oceans, lake and rivers,  and the bright blue sky. Her power surrounds us everyday and protect us if we so choose to use it for positive magick. Although that is but one of her colors, it has survived in the collective consciousness  for centuries, enough so that we continue to use it in magick to this very day.

So next time you think about the best color for magickal purposes, call upon the energies of Goddess power through this most mystical of colors..Who knows what awesome things might be realized in the outcome of your goals.GoddessJar (14)

Gemini New Moon~Curious Mutability

victorian-woman-writing-letterDear reader: Welcome to this magickal newsletter. Some of you might have noticed the title of the newsletter is different. The Witch’s Gazette has now become the name of my blog. Post’s titles will be shorter to reflect the theme and what better time to start off my blog changes than the new Moon!

Today’s new Moon, is in aspect to the sign of Gemini. For us in the Pacific coast it happens at 8 p.m. PST.  New Moon has as much power on its own way as that of a full Moon. Since it is dark when the new Moon happens, not showing yet that first crescent, it is the perfect time to take stock of has transpired the past lunar cycle. Think of the things you would like to achieve in the time it takes for the Moon to grow, wax and culminate into a full Moon.

New Moon is also a good time to take a cleansing and purification bath, cleanse your home and rid yourself of any old wax from past candle spells, for example. Clean your altar as well as your magickal tools. Items you would like to get rid of or donate and in short getting your spiritual and physical self ready for when the Moon starts to grow. This is very helpful as it clears mental cobwebs, prepares space for new things to come and clears the air for new blessings and experiences.

Gemini-Zodiac-Sign-Properties-03Gemini is ruled by the element of Air, and as such is mutable, curious, eloquent, intellectual. Gemini is masculine, reigned by the planet Mercury.

Although Mercury exudes intellectual power, Geminis are not always brainy, but! they do like to learn a bit about everything. Which makes them a sort of “jack of all trades” in the sense that they know just enough information about something, but not the whole subject. So if you want to impress someone with your “know-how” this is the Moon to help you, sort of “beef up” on a given subject.

Use the natural love of communication of a Gemini Moon to assist you to relay your ideas and thoughts better. If you want to be able to adapt to change smoothly, then this is the Moon sign to help along. If there is need for new ideas, being creative, or getting the mental juices for writing going, this is also the time to take advantage of the creative flow of Gemini.

Gemini Moon is also the perfect time to run errands, write letters and prepare for any upcoming activity. Also great time to meet new people and go on short trips.

Gemini Moon is a time to satisfy your curiosity, share your natural sense of humor. In the relationship area, this is a good time for a getaway together with your partner. A time to talk about any thing you both need to catch up on and make plans for the future.

Going along with the natural flow of the Moon makes sense. We live the natural energy of the Moon instead of going against the “tide.” Very helpful in so many areas as it will bring about a more natural outcome to mundane matters as well of course in your spiritual and magickal life.

Familiarize yourself with each Moon phase, follow her path as she alights on each astrological sign and spend time knowing how each aspect reflects on your own life, and how best to use the energies that are at our disposition.

Quick Cleansing bath:

A piece of quartz crystal

3 TBS sea salt or table salt

2 white candles. Tea lights are good, votive candles or the white emergency candles work well.

Rosemary oil or you can also use dried or fresh rosemary. About 1 TBS of dried or fresh. If you are using oil, add that directly to the bath water. About 3 drops is fine.

The above is a quick yet powerful way to connect with the brand new energies of the Moon. The purpose is to let go, and dispel the old from the past lunar cycle and prepare for the new energies.

Place your items on your customary table/altar where you perform you spiritual work. Place the crystal at topmost part, the two candles side by side below it and the rosemary on a small plate in between the candles. The salt as well in a small plate beneath the rosemary. Bless all for your work ahead. The candle on the right is the one that will bring in new energies and blessings. The candle on the left the one absorbing the old.

Create a bubble of light around you and your space. This is your sacred space. Bless your items, state your intent, e.g. ” I let go of hindrances, blocks, mistakes I made in the past Moon. I ask Goddess (or your deity of choice or belief) To cleanse me. Mind, body and soul, from that which stops me to attain the best for myself.” Of course you will fit the wording to your goal. If it is healing you want then create a petition for healing, if it is money the same, etc.  But make sure to add the words : “Cleanse mind, body and soul” Take the crystal in your hands and breath in the cleansing energies that are within this power stone. Put it back and lit the candles.  Let them burn while you take your bath and  to completion once you are done. Just remember to burn away from flammable items and monitor lit candles.

Once you are done, take the rosemary and boil it in 2 cups of water. Let it cool. Strain into your bath water.  Add the salt to the bath water. Salt purifies and cleanses the aura, absorbs negativity. Rosemary helps with deep cleansing the soul, purifying the aura, and attracting positive flow. Take your bath for 5, 7, 9 or 13 mints. Think of how you are letting the negative out of your body, out of your soul and heart and how you are welcoming the new energies.

Once you are done, leave your crystal on your altar, or carry with you, to keep the positive energies going.

As I close today’s blog, I reflect upon the growth of my own magickal newsletter, and where I would like to steer it for future posts.  With the new Moon in Gemini, I see an empty canvas, waiting to be painted and days ahead full of possibilities! May the new Moon, be filled with awesome things, beautiful things, for you dear reader.

And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.
– Meister Eckhart
