Garden Magick 2

The following diagrams are for a basic Witches Garden which will provide you with a wide variety of herbs for many magical purposes. These plants are all hardy to zone 7, and all except the bay, rosemary, lemon verbena and lavender are hardy to zone 4. If you plant the four tender plants in pots which you can bring in for the winter you should have no problems. Some of the plants are annuals, but the majority are perennials. No measurements are given to allow you to fit the plan to the site you have available. Each of the small squares can be as small as one foot by two feet, or as large as you like. The bigger the squares, the more plants you can put in each one. If you orient each section according to the North arrow and follow the layout diagram, the tallest plants will be on the outside, forming a small, private nook in the center. Sun gardening and moon gardening are used in conjunction to give your garden a head start. You can also use morning astrological hours and sun hours to assist in this. (Based on Lady Galadriel's garden)

Planting by the Zodiac
the Ram Aries/Fire/Masculine/Day/Cardinal-The Moon in Aries is a dry & barren time; plant onions, hot peppers & garlic, cultivate what is all ready there, and kill weeds & insects.
the Bull Taurus/Earth/Feminine/Night/Fixed-The Moon in Taurus is a moist and productive time; a good time for planting--especially root crops such as turnips, potatoes, carrots and for cultivating bulbs.
the Twins Gemini/Air/Masculine/Day/Mutable-The Moon in Gemini is a dry and barren time--a good time to stir up and aerate the soil, subdue weeds, pinch buds to stop unwanted growth; also good for keeping a garden diary to write down new ideas.
the Crab Cancer/Water/Feminine/Night/Cardinal-The Moon in Cancer is THE most moist & fertile time in the Zodiac. Seeds germimate quickly! Time to plant above ground, irrigate, do grafting, and to transplant new seedlings.
the Lion Leo/Fire/Masculine/Day/Fixed-The Moon in Leo is the driest, most barren of times. *No* planting should be done, or trimming of vines or trees; you can kill weeds & insects, and burn out old growth in the fields.
the Virgin Virgo/Earth/Feminine/Night/Mutable-The Moon in Virgo is a moist, but barren time; cut weeds, tie up pole-plants, clean the dirt & rust off your garden tools, tuck new straw around the plants--generally tidy up the garden.
the Scales Libra/Air/Masculine/Day/Cardinal-The Moon in Libra is a moist and fairly productive time, good for vigorous pulp growth, and hearty grain yields. This is the best time to plant any ornamental flowers or sow flower seeds.
the Scorpion Scorpio/Water/Feminine/Night/Fixed-The Moon is Scorpio is a very moist and productive time. This is the best time for fertilizing your crops; good for planting too--especially vines; also a good time to irrigate.
the Archer Sagittarius/Fire/Masculine/Day/Mutable-The Moon in Sagittarius is a dry and barren time--*do not* plant now or try to trim plants ; harvest now only during the *dark* of the Moon (also during Aquarius and Aries).
the Goat Capricorn/Earth/Feminine/Night/Cardinal-The Moon in Capricornus is a fairly productive time; it is especially good for planting root crops such as carrots and potatoes. This is also the time to wean your pets.
the Water-Bearer Aquarius/Air/Masculine/Day/Fixed-The Moon in Aquarius is a dry & barren time, not good for planting, but good for stirring the soil & killing weeds. Harvesting during the last quarter of the New Moon is best.
the Fishes Pisces/Water/Feminine/Night/Mutable-The Moon in Pisces is a moist and very productive time; excellent for the growth of fruits and berries, and to fertilize the garden. Good for short, quick growth and deep roots, and for planting bulbs

Ritual for a Fresh Start

Again not my work, been sitting in my draft folder for over two years. I give thanks out into the universe to the originator of this work and the creative force behind it. I know this ritual appears to be for the New Year, but I thought it would be good for the spring solstice also, spring cleaning and all. May this ritual bring you and yours a year of blessings, renewed every year. So Mote it Be.

Let's start with the home, the one's you love and yourself. First for the home is quite simple. You need four white candles for purity and healing. Light each one as you bless your circle and call in the four corners; north, south, east and west. As an example I always ask them to come by saying;

" I call upon the spirit of the North; Earth. Please come and join my circle."

I ask the other corners and whomever I pray to the same way as respect to them. Asking them to join me in this spell. You may also call in to whoever you may pray to for guidance. This is to make sure that nothing negative may come and contaminate your spell. Then just simply recite this;

Please_____ protect my home, everything inside and those that I love.
From the deep grounds beneath the house to the clouds above.

Let every wall, door and window be protected from those who may do harm.

So mote it be.

Thank the corners and whomever you pray to for coming and have a safe journey. Let the candles burn for about another minute then blow them out.

A good way to start the year. You may do this spell as often as at least every year to make it stronger. Protecting the ones you love inside the home are just as important as those on the outside.

Another simple way to not only have protection inside the house, but happiness and health as well is to have a few stones that also serve those purposes inside either a vase or a jar or a little bag to keep near by. Here's just a few of them that are good for either inside the house or to keep around you;

Onyx- Happiness


Jade-H ealth, Wisdom, Wealth

Jasper- Health, Luck, Stress Reduction

Juniper-Health, Purification

Those are just a few that's good to have around the house or on your persona. One thing you should do though is purify them. A simple way to do it is place themin a bowl of water and lavender oil. Lavender is for protection and stress-reduction so it's also good to have some for the bath when things seem to be getting too stressful. I suggest to leave them in for an hour and then simply dry them and place them in whatever container you choose to put them in.

Garden Magick 1

A garden is already a pretty magickal place, but a little spellwork can help your plants thrive. This spell is meant for the early spring when plants are just starting to sprout. You will need:

• 1 pint of milk
• A few spoons of honey
• 4 wooden garden stakes
• A length of green ribbon

If you can get organic milk and honey, even better. Mix the honey into the milk, and bring it out side to your garden with the stakes and ribbon. Try to do this on a sunny day after your plants have begun to come up.

Cut your ribbon into 4 pieces, long enough to tie a bow around the tops of each stake. Choose 4 points around your garden that would more or less surround the plants. North, south, east and west are ideal but not necessary. At each point, pour some of the honey milk and then push the stake into the moist earth. With each stake, say:

Milk and honey, flowing out
Goddess bless my every sprout
Growing strong
Season's long
Today I bless my garden

Your garden is now blessed with magic, but you still need to water it regularly and keep it free of weeds if you want it to thrive.

Celtic Knot Magick

By: Sam Stevens

Celtic Knot Magic doesn't have to be complicated. Here are some very simple rituals that might help you increase the overall prosperity in your life. Some are old, some are new, but one thing is certain they are all very superstitious.

Herbs are very well known for the money-drawing properties. Small pots of rosemary, thyme, basil, parsley are money drawing plants that are thought to bring prosperity to your home
A horseshoe nailed above the inside your front door is thought to keep prosperity in and keep poverty out. The idea is that the horseshoe is like a cup that embraces your good fortune.
A bowl of change by the front door is thought to keep money in your pocket. Old or foreign coins are thought to bring money to the home.
Placing a sprig of the herb cinquefoil under your pillow is thought to improve your cash flow.
The saying is "A Bayberry Candle burned to the socket, brings prosperity to the home and money in the pocket. Buy a pre-scented bayberry candle or anoint a green or pink candle with bayberry oil and light it.
Sprinkling a little cinnamon in your wallet is thought to hasten the speedy return of any money that may leave your hands."
A bed of shamrocks planted at the front door is thought to increase money flow and bring good fortune.
Wrap a bill with a large denomination around a piece of mandrake root with an elastic band and place it in your cash register to double your sales.
An acorn that is hollowed out, filled with cinnamon, rosemary, thyme and gold flakes and then sealed with green wax is thought to bring opportunities and financial fortune your way.
For the necessities of life, light a red candle to the Archangel Chamuel and ask that you always have the tools of your trade, food on your table, a roof over your head and money in the bank.
Make lemonade out of your lemons. Juice lemons; add water and sugar to taste. Stir the lemonade in the pitcher three times in a counterclockwise circle, saying " Gone, gone ...bad luck begone." Then stir in a clockwise direction saying " Mine, mine ...all good things are mine." Drink.
Stick a clove of garlic with nine pins and hang it near the front door to protect you from poverty.
Fill a small bowl with equal parts of sugar, salt and rice. Mix thoroughly and place an open safety pin in its center. Keep the bowl out in the open to eliminate poverty.
Rub a green candle with a tiny bit of honey, a sprinkle of cinnamon and dab of orange juice or orange oil. Light and ask for quick cash or money in a hurry.
To enhance business, find three foreign coins and wrap them in a gold colored cloth. Place it in the drawer of your cash register.
On a new moon, make a slit in a yam and wedge a penny inside it. Put it outside for fourteen days (until the full moon) and then bury it on the Full moon.
Draw the Ace, Ten and Seven of diamonds from an ordinary deck of playing cards. Anoint them with a commercial prosperity oil (or cinnamon or bayberry oil) and carry the three cards in your pocket to draw prosperity to you.
Whenever you find a coin on the floor, step on it and say, "Money on the floor, money at the door." Then pick it up and put it in your pocket.

Another Wish Spell

This spell has been used many times and the wished things have happened

usually in a short time.

-Needed Supplies-

*1 sheet of quality paper/parchment

*a pen/pencil used in magickal works

*candles (usually white, can change depending on your wish)

Do a relaxation ritual before this and clear your mind well. Concentrate on

the spell not the joy afterwards.

Take the paper/parchment and draw a pentagram in the middle of it. Then draw

a ying-yang symbol in the middle of it. Now write down your wish on the top

of the sheet. Write your wish such as ''make me get rich, make my

mother/friend etc. get healed, make me get 'the thing you want''...

Then fold the sheet 2-3 times and seal it with your candle. Then burn it with

the fire of candle you sealed it. While it turns into ashes, repeat your wish

inside yourself or out loud. When it's all ash,sprinkle the ashes from a

window or such.

'Be careful what you wish for, it can come in any way'

Misc. Full Moon Spells

just say this words when the moon is full:

"Lady of luck come out of your hiden course
bless your light upon me as the light of the moon shines above
and in the light of luck will be blessed i, when the moon is next to be full."

Done During the Full Moon...
Fill your cauldron half full of water and drop a silver coin into it. Position the cauldron so that the light from the moon shines into the water. Gently sweep your
hands just above the surface, symbolically gathering the Moon's silver.
While doing this say...
"Lovely Lady of the Moon, bring to me your
wealth right soon. Fill my hands with silver
and gold. All you give, my purse can hold."
Repeat this three times. When finished, pour the water upon the earth.

This spell I made my own version... and it works quite well!
This may be done at any time, but preferably at the same time each day or night.
You will need a Green Candle and a White Candle. The Green candle represents the money, and the white candle represents you. Make sure you annoint the candles with oil first, thinking of your desire for money to come to you. Set the candles on your alter or table 9 inches apart. After doing this say...
"Money, money come to me
In abundance three times three
May I be enriched in the best of ways
Harming none on its way
This I accept, so mote it be
Bring me money three times three!"
Repeat this for nine days. Each day move the white candle one inch closer to the green candle. When the candles touch, your spell is finished. Make sure you visualize the money pouring in from the universe.

I HAVE invoked thee, O Sun, in the midst of the high heavens.
Thou art in the shadow of the cedar, and thy feet rest on the summits.
The countries have called thee eagerly, they have directed their looks towards thee,
O Friend, thy brilliant light illuminates every land, overthrowing all that impedes thee, assemble the countries, for thou, O Sun, knowest their boundaries.
Thou who annihilatest falsehood, who dissipated the evil influence of wonders, omens, sorceries, dreams, evil apparitions, who turnest to a happy issue malicious designs, who annihilatest men and countries that devote themselves to fatal sorceries, I have taken refuge in thy presence.
Do not allow those who make spells, and are hardened, to arise.
Frighten their heart,
Settle also, O Sun, light of the great gods
Right into my marrow, O Lords of breath, that I may rejoice, even I.
May the gods who created me take my hands!
Direct the breath of my mouth!
My hands direct them also, Lord, light of the legions of the heavens. Sun, O Judge!


IN THE place of tears, I, the singer, watch my flowers, they enthrall my spirit as I walk alone with them--My spirit sad amid the flowers.

In this spot where the herbage is as sweet ointment, and green as the turquoise and emerald, I dream of a song of beauty while the blossoms of beauty are in my hand!

Let us rejoice now, O friends! O children! For the life of the earth-born is not long upon earth.

I now go forth in swiftness--to the sweet songs I go forth--to the flowers of fragrance, O friends! O children!

O hé! I sang aloud, O hé! I rained song blossoms as I sped!

Let us go forth to the four ways! I, the singer, shall find and bring forth the flowers. Let us be glad while we live--hark to my song of joy!

I, the poet, cry out a song for a place of joy--a radiant song which descends to the Underworld, and there turns and echoes back to you!

I seek neither vestments or riches, O friends! O children! but a song for a place of joy!

Bless this Day

May this day be blessed with gifts
Lessons, understanding and friends
May my energy be a gift to all I meet

Let me be centered, healing and open
May I face the day with courage
kindness, insight and compassion

May my spirit and body, honor this day

The Spell of the Comb and the Mirror

O Lady of Shimmering beauty,
For whom the stars are shining jewels
And the Universe Her creation and plaything,
Weaver of destinies
And protectress of things wild and free.
Make me now, I do ask
To be thy daughter.
Make me one with thee
And grant me thy far-flung power.
Grant to this, thy Witch and Sorceress
Strength within and without
As eternal as the boundless sea;
The calm assurance of my powers
To make any do my bidding
And the winds, waters, and fires,
The hills themselves
Lend willingly themselves to me,
Give to me, who am of thy ancient Craft
The wisdom of ages, the lore of eons
Knowledge of light, knowledge of dark.
Grant me beauty ever more perfect
That I may reflect thee better.
Build magick within me,
Build power within me.

Power be drawn, and power come,
And make me one with thee
Make me greater, make me better.
Grant me strength and grant me power.

O Goddess who is my friend and mother,
I give you love and thanks
O Beautiful One.
May the magic I have summoned

Return the stronger when I have need of it.
May wisdom, strength, comeliness and compassion
Remain with me, growing ever finer.
So mote it be!
