Brush Enchantment Spell for Healthy Hair

I like to enchant objects I use every day for an added boost, especially when I don’t really feel up to actively doing anything. This is the case in regards to most of my hair/beauty projects, which I may be sharing more about soon if this does well and you all are interested. It is simple, and really easy to do, as most of the energy you put into the brush comes from the moon and some crystals.

What You’ll Need:

  • One Hairbrush
  • Rose Quartz (Beauty, softness, selfcare)
  • Black Tourmaline (strength, absorption of energy, power)
  • Clear Quartz (Shine, clarity of your scalp, conduit of energy)
  • Window (as long as the brush is somehow exposed to a view of the sky, it will work. It will be more powerful if in direct moonlight, in my experience)
  • Diluted Lavender Essential Oil (optional) (dilute using a carrier oil, NOT water. That will not dilute it, as oil and water will not mix together into one solution)

I recommend cleansing the brush beforehand. I also suggest cleaning it physically each time you do this, it is very beneficial to clean out your brush after a while, and I do this spell once every lunar cycle on the full moon.

Begin by setting your brush in view of the moon/sky. Place your crystals around it as desired. I put one on each side, except the handled part. If desired, anoint the bristles or back of the brush very lightly. Use this chant and add any desired energy you wish to:

Beauty come and beauty fly,

Beauty pulled down from the sky.

Moon above your wonder pours,

Here I ask for hair that floors.

Strong and rich with length I name,

I want it soft and smooth as flame.

This is my wish, a fervent plea;

And as I will, so mote it be.

Leave your hairbrush in sight of the moon for a few hours or all night. Then, you can use it as often as you like. Recharge as necessary by repeating the ritual, which for me is typically every full moon. Good luck!

🕉 How to: Magick Oils 🕉

(From Left to Right: Frankincense Oil, Dragons Blood Oil, and Myrrh Oil)

Note: I will be discussing infused oils in this post. Another type of oil commonly used is essential oil - created from steam distillation - which I will discuss in a future post.

Oils have been used for magical and healing purposes for thousands of years. They can be traced back to the earliest religious texts and magical recipe books. They are widely popular due to their versatility and long shelf-life, and can be found in magical practices the world over.

An infused oil consists of two main parts: a carrier oil, and natural oils extracted from herbs.

There are many types of carrier oils, such as olive, jojoba, and almond, but any oil that is essentially colorless and odorless can be used as a carrier oil. Each type has its own unique properties, some of which I’ve listed below.

Both essential and infused oils can be purchased at grocery stores, apothecaries, farmers markets, and spiritual stores. However, they are often quite expensive for a relatively small amount, so I’ve found it is easier to just make my own.

To Create an Infused Oil

You will need:

• a clean, dry bottle for storage

• a clean, dry mason jar

• the herb(s) you wish to use

• the carrier oil(s) you wish to use

• a large pot of water

• a stove

• a strainer/cheesecloth/old t-shirt

1) Set the pot of water on the stove at medium heat. Throughout this entire process, the water should only ever simmer, never boil.

2) Place the herb(s) and carrier oil(s) into the mason jar in a 1:1 proportion. The oil should just barely fill past the top of the herbs.

3) Place the mason jar into the hot water bath (LID OFF THE JAR or else it will explode from pressure inside the jar)

4) Allow the jar to heat in the water for 2-6 hours, or until you are satisfied; stir periodically.

5) Remove the jar from the water bath, allow it to cool, strain the mixture with the strainer/cheesecloth/old t-shirt, and bottle it the oil.

For the oils I made in the picture above, the process was slightly different. These were made using the herbal resins Frankincense, Dragons Blood, and Myrrh. Herbal resins are already made entirely of fats and oils, so they will readily dissolve in heated oil.

For these, I ground each resin into a fine powder. I then added a tablespoon of each powder to each jar and filled the jar ¾ full with carrier oil. This allowed the powder to completely dissolve in the oil when heated in the water bath, eliminating the straining process.

Oils typically have a shelf-life of 4-6 months if kept unrefrigerated, though this can be extended by storing the oil in a dark place and/or adding a splash of vitamin E oil.

Common Carrier Oils

Almond - Air 💨 Element, ruled by Mercury - used commonly in healing and massage oils because it readily absorbs into skin; also used for communication, prosperity, and wisdom.

Avocado - Water💧Element, ruled by Venus - used for love, lust, and beauty

Coconut - Water💧Element, ruled by the Moon; used for protection and purification

Grapeseed - Water💧Element, ruled by the Moon; used for fertility, psychic powers, mental abilities, and goddess energy

Jojoba - Water💧Element, ruled by the Moon; used for beauty, healing, and love

Olive - Fire 🔥 Element, ruled by the Sun; all purpose oil, though I have found it clogs my pores, so I reserve olive oil for my exclusively magical oils, or my oils with darker intentions.

Happy Witching 🕉

One thing I wish they would bring back in the Super Sentai franchise are the giant carrier vehicles that bring the team’s mecha to them for the final battle. In the older shows, they would always have one of these and I always loved their design and how it gave a practical way for the mecha to get to the heroes.

The first one was Battle Shark from 1979′s Battle Fever J.

This giant, flying battleship began underwater before bursting forth to bring Battle Fever Robo to the heroes.  I just love the design and the color scheme on this thing.  That may be just a wee bit because I adore the concept of flying battleships, likely a result of my love for the look of the Space Battleship Yamato from the eponymous anime.

Of course, even before they were mecha delivery systems, we had things like the carriers.  In Himitsu Sentai Goranger we had a vehicle to carry the team into battle and help them in various ways, this was the Variblune:

Which was later replaced by the Varidreen:

When the next Sentai series, J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai came around, their vehicle the Sky Ace became even more important to the team.

The J.A.K.Q. team could not transform into their more powerful, costumed forms without the aid of huge, coffin-sized transformation capsules.

It was the Sky Ace that brought these capsules to the team in the field so they could transform and fight whatever vile monster CRIME sent against them.  This is arguably and even more vital function than carrying a mecha, which Sentai did not have yet, until Battle Fever J.

In 1980, we got yet another awesome carrier vehicle, the DenziTiger which transported the might DaiDenzin robot to Denshi Sentai Denziman.

It was also amphibious as well as airborne and had another neat trick, it could unfold into a flat-topped aircraft carrier mode.  The vehicle on top is the machine that transforms into the giant robot.

One of my all-time favorites though came with 1981′s Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan and the Jaguar Vulcan carrier!

This fearsome carrier brought the two machines that combined (a first for Super Sentai) to form Sun Vulcan Robo.  I just love the way it looks like an angry mechanical cat ready to pounce on the enemy.

From there, carriers continues with 1982′s Dai Sentai Goggle-V having Goggle Caeser:

Kagaku Sentai Dynaman had DyJupiter bring their mecha in 1983:

Bio Dragon carried Bio Jets 1 & 2 into combat for 1984′s Choudenshi Bioman. It also had the opening into a flat-topped carrier mode that DenziTiger featured.

Shuttle Base not only brought Change Robo into battle but betrayed 1985′s Dengeki Sentai Changeman’s originally planned origins as a space-themed team.

In 1986, an actual team from space Choushinsei Flashman used the Star Condor to transport the components of their mighty mecha, Flash King.  I am not even going to lie, I LOVE the look of this carrier.  It looks like a supersonic fighter combined with a transport and that’s an aesthetic I can get behind.

Turboranger (no relation to the 1989 Super Sentai team) carried around the parts of Hikari Sentai Maskman’s mecha in 1987.

And finally, in 1988, Choujuu Sentai Liveman had their animal-themed mecha carrier by Machine Buffalo.

Ever since 1988, we haven’t really had any carrier vehicles or flying fortresses for our Super Sentai heroes.  It’s just an aspect of the franchise that faded away with the end of the 1980s.  I find that kind of strange because you would think Bandai in their toy-pushing need would want to create yet one more thing that could be merchandised.  Maybe they just stopped selling in favor of the actual robots, maybe it just became too unwieldy story-wise to have to keep relying on a slow transport to get the mecha to the field of battle.  Any way you cut it, it’s a trend that is now dead and one I kind of miss.  

Landing on Aircraft Carriers.

Landing on an aircraft carrier is an extremely challenging task. A shortened moving runway surrounded by the mighty oceans makes it only harder.

But pilots( especially navy ) are trained to land on aircraft carriers and a couple of simple engineering designs aid in this enterprise;

The arresting gear

Arresting gear, or arrestor gear, describes mechanical systems used to rapidly decelerate an aircraft as it lands.

There are 4 cables in separated lines that the pilots aim for whilst landing.

When the tailhook of the jet engages with the wire, the aircraft’s kinetic energy is transferred to hydraulic damping systems, this slows down the aircraft tremendously.

What if they miss?

It does happen! Pilots do miss the line while attempting to land.

They keep full speed until they are 100% sure that they hook up  ( in case they miss the cables ). Which means they are still at full speed for about 2 seconds at the end with the cable extended to max.

If they don’t hook up to the line, they simply go around.

Vertical Landing

Some jets also have the ability to vertically land on the flight deck.

They are known as VTOL’s ( Vertical take off and landing ) aircrafts.They can hover, take off, and land vertically.

Catching aircrafts with a net

The barricade/barrier system/crash net is quite literally a net that is used to slow down an aircraft.

It is employed only under emergency situations or for aircrafts that operate without a tailhook.

                     A successful landing without a nosewheel

The barricade webbing engages the wings of the landing aircraft, wherein energy is transmitted from the barricade webbing through the purchase cable to the arresting engine.

That’s all folks!

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Have a good one!

A long time ago, the gods blessed a union

And from their blessing, a child was created

I gave you up to protect you, but those I trusted

Betrayed you

Yet you found purpose, you found love

My son, I’m so proud of you

Created for my Ironpanther Arranged marriage au:

One shot here

Bound by honor - coming soon

What if Diana and Steve Trevor had a child through magic/blessing by the gods. That child was Tony, Diana gave him up to Howard and Maria Stark with specific instructions and information. But Howard never gave it to Tony. Years later, thanks to Thor, Tony learns who he is.
