The Bottle: 

Fill the small bottle up, first layering the salt, then the stones and lastly the spices, concentrating on your intent. 

Next, cork up the bottle and seal it, reminding yourself you’re enough, you’re worth it and you deserve love. 

Lastly,clasp the bottle in your hands and whisper “I am loved, I am protected, I am filled with energy” and many times as you need, usually until your hands pulsate, kiss the bottle and voila!

You can also make these bottles for your spoonie friends, it doesn’t have to be for you, just fill it with love and intent. It’s a nice gift ~

If you make it, send pics!

I’m really starting to brew some great ideas for my first official jewelry collection of the year. It’s going to be called Crystal Armor or something like that… I’m going to center it around BIG statement pieces that feel powerful and protective. I know right now in these times a lot of people feel unsafe, so I’m going to be working on pieces that empower you and make you feel strong. It’s going to be both with the design and with the metaphysical properties of the stones (a lot of citrine and black tourmaline and smoky quartz and amethyst…)

Just wanted to share a little bit of what I’ve been thinking up. It will probably be a while before I’m ready to show what I’m working on, but I hope you guys like the sound of the idea. 💙

(P.S. since these pieces will be in the higher price ranges due to materials and the long time they take to make, I’m also going to be making more simplicity necklaces with stones that share those metaphysical properties I was talking about!)

New Moon altar ready for some Aries energies!


Invoking the goddess Lilith who wants to lend her snake-shedding, renewal energies to my spell work. 🐍🌹✨

I’m offering a red candle topped with rosemary (a new moon herb, good for cleansing) and glitter, a shed snake skin, a snake hair stick carved from bone, some of her favorite gems and jewelry (black tourmaline, hematite, jet, obsidian, raven black aura quartz, ruby aura quartz, smoky quartz, and labradorite), and an obsidian carving of the spirit energy that came from my deck this morning - Crow.

CROW ~ Spiritually strong, creative, watchful

The Crow has long been a symbol of magic. A Crow personality is drawn to the supernatural and has a gift for seeing the unseen, knowing the unknown. It is said the the Crow holds within its mind’s eye the three realities: past, present, and future. Crow energy is potent and should only be tapped into when the mind is clear. Those with Crow tendencies must balance their life with a healthy diet, joyfrul friends, and regular self-study.

When in balance: psychic, strong, clear
When out of balance: ungrounded, hypersensitive
To bring into balance: daily meditation practice

Let’s survive this retrograde - Jar

Not sure I believe in retrogrades effects but I know that a lot of you do, so I created this little jar to help you survive this tough time. I only used simple ingredients as I wanted it easy to do. If you need equivalences cause you don’t have some, let me know!


  • salt for general protection
  • dried Rosemary for Mercury: to always hear the truth
  • Black Pepper for Mars: to make the right choices
  • dried Sage for Jupiter: to keep a clear mind
  • dried Basil for Saturn : don’t fall into bad habits!
  • Black tourmaline or Smoky quartz for Pluto: to avoid losing yourself
  • a jar
  • wax to seal it if you wish

How to proceed:

  1. Take the time to light a candle, meditate if you wish to and focus on your intent: surviving the retrograde safely.
  2. Add the ingredients in the jar/bottle one by one, expressing (out loud or not) your intent for each one.
  3. Finally, add the lid to your jar/bottle and seal it with the wax if you wish. Focus your energy one last time on your intent for this jar.
  4. Carry it with you during the retrograde!

Good luck :p
