Aquamarine

Aquamarine is associated with the moon, the colour turquoise, and the element water. It is associated with the god Poseidon/Neptune. It helps with psychic ability, courage, peace, and purification.

Aquamarine is known for enlightenment, spiritual awareness, and making you more in tune with your own emotions. It is great for helping sooth your mind from any worries or stress, it is great for heartache, as well as helping to ease physical pain and discomfort.  It is said to help you with your relationships, be it romantic or platonic. If you are experiencing self doubt or any sort of turmoil aquamarine can counteract it making you feel at peace. This stone is said to increase your intelligence which will help you come up with quick solutions which should help you in your work/school/life in general. This crystal is thought to have such high positive vibrations that it can overpower evil making it a very good protective stone as well.

When it comes to helping your physical body it is thought that it is an all purpose healing stone. It is said that aquamarine is good to have around if you are pregnant as it helps protect the mother and baby from harm. It is also said to help protect the fetus and prevent miscarriages. Aquamarine is also great for a sore throat or you can use to to complement any treatments for thyroid problems and swollen glands. If you are experiencing aching muscles or tired bones you can try sleeping with aquamarine in the same room as you or under your pillow, or you could hold it over/on the source of the pain for a duration of time.

When it comes to the chakras you can use aquamarine to help heal the throat and the heart chakra. Which chakra your personal aquamarine crystal will be best for healing is dependent on the hues of colour it has. If your aquamarine has more blue tones then it may be better fit for the throat chakra, if it is more green then it may be better suited for the heart chakra.

That’s all for today, I hope you enjoyed! What do you use aquamarine for? Let me know in the comments along with any other thoughts or questions you have.

Basil

basil-with-wet-leaves

Basil is a pretty popular herb in witchcraft as it can be used for many different workings. It is very popular in Greece for numerous reasons. Obviously it is delicious but they also keep it in their home for protection. When basil is put in your house it is thought to bless everyone in it and it keeps unwanted spirits away as well. Basil very well be the most powerful at doing this compared to all other herbs. It is common for Christian churches to use basil to “make” their holy water. Water infused with basil is thought to be able to keep demons away and bless anything anointed with it.

Basil is also very handy when it comes to spell work. You can use it for protection spells, money spells, love spells, and beauty spells. If you are doing a spell to further your career in some aspect basil is great to use too. If you’re worried about someone being possessed you can use basil to do an exorcism as well.

Basil is commonly given to a newlywed couple to help foster love and luck in every aspect of their lives. If you rub your hands on a live plant of basil and then smell them it is said to help your memory. And drinking basil tea is supposed to give you prophetic dreams. Lastly, you can write on dried basil leaves and burn them to banish things from your life.

Can you do Witchcraft with Tattoos?

So, I don’t know if you’ve noticed through pics or on youtube (if you follow me there) but I am a tattooed lady. I absolutely love tattoos and I actually just got two new ones last week while I was on vacation. I am actually planning on having a nature/wicca based arm sleeve. I know a lot of other Wiccans tend to enjoy tattoos (obviously not all, just making a generalization) so I thought you guys might enjoy talking about how we can make our tattoos magickal.

So when one gets a tattoo there is a good chance that what you’re getting on your body has some sort of meaning. It could be to honour a loved one, to remember a piece of your childhood, to show your love for a certain show/movie/book, etc. Well when doing a spell we do something similar. We give our spell an intent. Infusing a tattoo with magick is much of the same. You find a design you want and you infuse that design with your intent.

27073374_1576333662455257_4188636195681342_n

When it comes to what kind of things you may want to put on your body for magickal purposes there are tons of options. You could create a sigil and infuse it with your intent. Some examples of some intentions you may want to give to a tattoo sigil are protection, positivity, love, happiness, laughter, prosperity, etc. You could also get a tattoo that represents your dedication to the wicca path, a specific wiccan tradition, or even a particular deity. I know at some point I want to get a tattoo to dedicate to Gaia.

There are two main ways to go about getting these magickal tattoos. The first option, which is not one I am necessarily recommending as it a bit dangerous, is stick and poke tattoos. If you have a simple design you want to get, you could attempt to do it on your own. This is a great method if you want a more hands on approach to infusing the tattoo with your magickal intent. Make sure you have the proper equipment when you do this though. You can buy kits for this on amazon I believe. The 2nd method, which is what I personally would do, would be to get someone to create me a tattoo design. I then would take the time to focus on giving that design my intent and meditating with it. Then, when it is time to get the artist to tattoo me, I would try my hardest to meditate (or at the very least focus on my intent) while they do their work.

Pagan questions… Get to know me Part 1

Hi everyone, today I thought I would let you guys get to know me a bit better. I am going to be answering questions which are about my beliefs and about my path. I found this little pic and figured I would just answer them all! I will answer about half today and the other half another day. I’m going to try and give just yes or no answers (when possible) since there are a lot of questions but you can feel free to ask me to elaborate on anything in the comments. Also, keep in mind that one question is repeated a lot in the picture below, for some reason. I only answer it once and therefore the question numbers on the pic aren’t going to be the same as how I have them numbered below.

67699831_1314532055376302_1674667453050781696_n

1. How did you find your path?

I had recently stopped being a Christian and was agnostic. I was researching different beliefs and came across Wicca.

2. Are you in or out of the closet?

Well I’m out to all friends, strangers, coworkers, my dad, and my siblings. I’m out to my mom about being pagan in general. However the rest of my family is still mostly under the assumption that I am Christian I think. I do have Wicca as my religion on fb but I didn’t share it to my feed so it’s just there for anyone to stumble upon.

3. Do you have an altar/shrine/sacred space?

Yes

4. Your take on the Wheel of the year?

Not quite sure what my take would be… I enjoy the wheel of the year… I wouldn’t change it… I try to celebrate when I can but I find it hard since work only gives me Christian holidays off.

5. What does this time of year mean to you?

Well the end of summer is slowly coming. In a month is the equinox I believe so I am super excited for that. Right now everything is about getting the earth, animals, bugs, etc, ready for the fall. I will admit that I am excited for summer to be over though as it is one of my least favourite seasons.

6. What are your cultural influences?

Well I am white so one can argue that I have no culture. However youtube effects me greatly. The things that I watch like wicca channels, mommy channels, and other stuff effects me a lot; what I aspire to and do.

7. How do you view sacred texts and mythology?

I don’t think I really view any sacred texts. But for viewing mythology I do a lot of research online. I also like to read Rick Riordan books. They are obviously just fiction but they are based on a lot of mythology facts which is a fun way for me to learn.

8. Do you have/how did you find a matron/patron

I do have a matron and patron. I did do a tarot spread to help determine it a bit but I also just felt in my gut who I was drawn to. Gaia and Pan fyi

9. Do you keep a diary/journal of your experiences?

Nope

10. What do the moon phases mean to you?

Well obviously they represent the phases of the goddess. It also affects energy levels in the air.

11. What does the sun mean to you?

It represents the god and his strength

12. Do you use divination? What types?

Yes, tarot, oracle, and pendulums typically.

13. What does magick mean to you?

It is a more powerful use of the law of attraction in my opinion. It is an optional part of the path that I think a lot of people deem mandatory.

14. Do you perform spells on a regular basis?

Nope

15. What spiritual practice do you do most often?

Divination probably

16. What does the deity/god/divine mean to you?

Well I identify most with the divine. I believe in the universal energy source. I also have deities that I worship however. I do not believe deities are actual being but rather just personified pieces of the universal energy source.

17. How do you feel about group work/worship?

I really enjoyed it as a Christian but it has been so long that I have had the opportunity to worship within a group that I would awkward about it now.

18. What does initiation mean to you?

Initiation is not important to me at all (I’m assuming that this is separate from dedication).

19. Do you have a grimoire/book of shadows?

Yes

20. Do you create your own correspondences?

I don’t other than what’s on this site.

21. How important is your diet/magickal use of food?

I wish I prioritized it more. I have certain ethics and morals on food but too lazy and frugal to actually buy what I want to be eating. As for food and magick, I don’t typically mix those.
