Basic Color Magic

Color Magic is all about representation in your craft. It’s easy to add a little more power to your spellwork by using colors that represent the theme of what you are trying to accomplish. This is one of the most useful kinds of magic for beginning witches because color is found everywhere, unlike obscure herbs or stones, and can be found easily in most homes without having to buy anything new or expensive. You can write you words out in a colored pen, or on colored paper, use ribbons of specific colors in chord magic, or use colored candles. Color magic is great for beginners, and easy to add into spells, even for experienced practicians. All you need to know is which colors to use for which purpose.

First and foremost, White is used for: all purpose, cleansing, purity, peace, balance, concentration, innocence, healing, truth, and spirituality,

Black is used for: grounding, wisdom, learning, protection and safety, reversing or uncrossing and unhexing, abolishing negative energy, transforming, defense, scrying, and pride

Red is used for: passion, vitality, strength, survival, fertility, courage, sexuality, mercy, action, danger, war, conflict, independence, assertiveness, competition, and as a representation of the element fire

Orange is used for: creativity and self expression, intellectual matters, overcoming addiction, justice, joy, business success and ambition, vitality, fun, action and opportunity, and celebration

Yellow is used for: pleasure, success, happiness, learning, memory and concentration, persuasion, inspiration, imagination, charm, confidence, travel, flexibility, and to represent the element of air

Green is used for: prosperity, abundance, money, physical and emotional healing, growth, luck, marriage, plant magic, acceptance, weather, counteracting, jealousy, and envy

Light Blue is used for: spirituality, tranquility, peace, and protection

Blue is used for: communication, will power, focus, forgiveness, good fortune, truth, fidelity, patience, domestic harmony, organization, removing bad vibrations, sincerity, and representing the element of water

Indigo is used for: spiritual guidance, psychic ability, upholding dignity, divination, meditation, ambitions, and overcoming depression

Violet is used for: spirituality, connection to higher self, insight, clarity, tension, and representing the divine feminine

Purple is used for: wisdom, influence, spiritual power, driving away evil, changing one’s luck, independence, breaking habits, and representing the element of spirit, soul, or life force

Lavender is used for: knowledge and intuition

Pink is used for: love, compassion, nurturing, femininity, friendship, romance, partnership, spiritual and emotional healing, protection of children and innocents, domestic harmony, self improvement, and maturity

Brown is used for: house blessings, animal magic, concentration, material goods, stability, food, financial crisis, and representing the element of earth

Grey is used for: loneliness, glamour, contemplation, and removing negativity

Silver is used for: feminine divinity, stability, psychic awareness, intuition, dreams, victory, medetation, communication, luck, and moon magic

Gold is used for: masculine divinity, great fortune, abundance, prosperity, understanding, divination, fast luck, positive attitude, justice, health, attraction, luxury, and magic involving the sun

Copper: business success, passion, money, fertility, and career growth

So today i’m rewatching anime : “Princess Tutu”.

God help me… I did not know that Ahiru and Fakir would remind me SO MUCH of Pidge and Keith.  And by that i mean they are REALLY, REALLY similiar.

Seriously, short, stubborn girl and  emotional mullet who are both best friends with dude who was kiddnaped by vilain and spoilers lost something.
AND HE EVEN HAVE WHITE, FLAWLESS HAIR. (not to mention about girl who is crushing on him)

Sounds familiar?
NO? If you like Kidge, then you can check it out, it’s old, but still pretty good.

I’m fangirling so hard it’s ridiculous.

~THE BASIC TOOLS OF A WITCH~
**tools do not need to be used but make casting easer and this is not a complete list, as different paths have there own lists.

THE CHALICE 
the chalice is often made of silver, tho it can be made of any material. It is associated with water, and feminine energies.

THE CAULDRON
A tool of fire, often used to burn offerings , fire magic, or mixing potions. Many use cast iron cauldrons as cooking vessels.

DOWSING RODS
A divination tool often used to find lost objects or find underground water for well making.

MAGICAL JOURNAL
A magical journal often called a book of shadows due to pop culture , often used to keep a log of magical experiences, practices and recipes. 
Many believe the power of the written word, I personally believe that there’s more power in writing down it all by hand. You can use you book any way you want and name it what you want. It’s supposed to be personal and over the years you may have a series of books written by you.

THE WAND
A can be made with a verity of materials as well, many use certain woods and crystals while others use copper. They have masculine energies and considered tools of fire/ air. They are used to direct magical energies.
WILLOW: lunar magic
OAK: fire magic
APPLE: love magic
To name a few woods and magical uses.
THE ATHAME 
A double sided blade that is never to be used to cut any physical surface. The Athame is usually considered to be a tool of air/fire. Used to direct energy , it is masculine
THE BESOM
A broomstick it combines both masculine and feminine energies, used to “sweep away unwanted energies” never to be used for mundane but only for the magical, or else you risk loosing any magical power stores in it.
THE SMOKE FAN 
Used to move magical energies in a space, a tool of air as it can be used in combination with sage for a cleansing ritual.

~BASIC TOOL CONSECRATION~
Prior to consecration I rub the wand with fresh lavender ,eucalyptus or mint leaves.
When I consecrate my tools I hold the tool (wand) in my hand and visualize it absorbing my energies, then I purify the tool( wand) from its old energies with the elements , I choose to use the smoke method. While I smoke cleanse the wand I usually say aloud a blessing of the elements.
Elemental blessing: 
I HOLD IN MY HANDS THE (tool), WHICH I DEDICATE AS A TOOL OF THE (name of element) ELEMENT. I DEDICATE IT TO POSITIVE USES AS I WALK THE PATH OF THE WISE

From cave and desert, sea and hill
By wand, blade cup, and pentacle
I charge you now ; attend to me!
This is my will, so mote it be!

Earth, Water ,fire and Air
Elements both strong and fair,
Return to your abodes now; Flee!
This is my will, so mote it be!

To be centered means it balanced physically spiritually and then all the set-top bodies as well this concept is a bit intangible most simply know the feeling when we reach it. to use stones to aid centering like those Used in meditation ,stimulate the mind and is recommended for spirituality clear fluorite is a good choice for this task, and restaurants are that are good for both sending and grounding hold the stone hearthstones while the meditate practice breathing exercises are use this out and like music or bells you can also gaze at the stones and practice centering this way in addition using prayer beads can help one become centered and focused.
Chant: 
Body mind and spirit now align
center focus on this goal of mine 
subtile bodies balance to the core

Select stones to ground and think heavy especially talk Ors Load Stone Scalia and Hematite, bronze and Brett are less commonly used that are both heavy and also good choices aground.

Good morning, everyone! ☀️❤️
Can I ask you a favour? Anons, mutuals, friends! I’d like to read a really good fan fiction, one that’d leave me completely and utterly satisfied and heart eyed, full heart and peaceful soul and everything! I’m just not skilled enough to properly navigate the immensity of our archives (thanks to the impressive amount of quality our authors spoil us with😍) and after a full day of fruitless research, I give up, as I just keep on messing up with tags and filters. I really like angst, as long as the eventual resolution is fulfilling and able to make up for all the previous pain and both harry and louis never stop being good people deeply in love with each other even trough difficulties (even if circumstances happen to keep them apart). Happy ending, obviously! Don’t care if it’s a classic or a new brilliant work!
Thank you so much, you’d be a blessing! xx

Guide To Colormancy

Colormancy is using colors and their correspondences for divining purposes. It is a method of divination that I haven’t found too much about on here, so here is a little guide to using colormancy, different techniques, and color correspondences.

Techniques:

There are plenty of different ways to use colormancy, for it is a rather broad form of divination. A few suggestions on what to use:

  • Cards: using colored cards can be a very easy way to use colormancy. You may then use them exactly how you would any form of cartomancy. It is my personal preferred way of using colormancy, mine are about the size of standard tarot cards and I lay them out as if I was doing a Tarot reading.
  • Buttons: putting a bunch of small colored buttons into a bag and pulling them out one at a time or tossing them onto a divination grid is another easy method of colormancy. You could also use colored rocks, beads, crayons, marbles, or anything else small that you can easily pull from a bag.
  • Color Wheel: Simply taking a color wheel and turning it into a spinner and flicking it when you wish to get a fast easy answer is an easy beginner method.
  • Pendulums: If you have a pendulum or necklace this is another easy method. Print out or make a pendulum chart or grid and when asking your questions interpret which color the pendulum swings over.
  • Color Generators: For those who enjoy using technomancy and modern witchcraft you can use random color generator sites to randomize and provide you with the colors in response to you questions. It is also a fast way for witches on the go who have a cellphone.
  • Dice: Rolling a dice with different colored sides is another easy way for beginners in divination and colormancy to start out. If you don’t have a dice with different colored sides you can easily make one by finding a dice you do not mind painting up and paint the sides with either paint or nail polish. You could also, if you are good at arts and crafts, make your own dice from paper and color the sides.

There are numerous other ways to use colormancy of course. Find what works for you best, these were just some easy suggestions.

chapter 2: correspondences.

Although correspondences can be more of a Wiccan tradition (though I’ve seen correspondences in other witchcraft traditions), I personally feel they are important as each correspondence holds a specific energy having to do with what you’re using it for. Several correspondences in witchcraft are: moon phases, colors, crystals, and herbs.

☽ Moon Phases ☾

There are nine phases of the moon: new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter, waning crescent, and dark moon.

The new moon is the period after the dark moon, which will eventually grow into the waxing moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: new beginnings, growth, renewal, beauty, love, jobs, networking and creativity.
The waxing crescent moon is the period after the new moon, which will eventually grow into the first quarter moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: animals, business, change, choice, freedom, initiations, individualization, new ideas, challenge to status quo, rebellions, and warrior aspect.

The first quarter moon is the period after the waxing crescent moon, which will eventually grow into the waxing gibbous moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: balance, beginnings, health, healing, courage, elemental magick, friends, love, luck, wealth, fertility, and psychic powers.

The waxing gibbous moon is the period after the first quarter moon, which will eventually grow into the full moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: increase, analysis, evaluation, courage, patience, peace, harmony, fruition, and completion.

The full moon is the period after the waxing moon, which will eventually diminish into the waning moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: fruition, protection, divination, love, children, decisions, dreams, legal matters, ovulation, fertilization, pregnancy, lust, and life.

The waning gibbous moon is the period after the full moon, which will eventually diminish into the last quarter moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: to remove bad habits or addictions, divorce, protection, banishing, knowledge and teaching.

The last quarter moon is the period after the waning gibbous moon, which will eventually diminish into the waning crescent moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: banishing, removing illnesses, destruction, releasing, wisdom, and the underworld.

The waning crescent moon is the period after the last quarter moon, which will eventually diminish into the dark moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: releasing addictions and obsessions, change, justice, quarrels, death, reincarnation, and destiny.

The dark moon is the period after the waning crescent moon, which will eventually grow into the new moon. It’s magickal correspondences are: rest, meditation, dreams, divination, sleep, visions, and magick.

This is for the spell request 💜 pacifier (if you're a parent of a young child)

Pacifier Spell
A spell to bless and charm a baby’s pacifier with good intent and love

Materials: Avoid everything that could be potentially unsafe or irritating for a young child to come in contact with. You don’t want to trigger any unknown allergies. No flowers/plants, herbs, smoke, and no sugar or salt for <1 yr olds.
-a wand. This can be anything as long as you can hold it to direct your energy.
-rose quartz, clear quartz, amethyst, prehnite, green calcite. Any combination of these stones will add love, amplify good intentions, and encourage growth. One can be used as a wand if it’s long enough
-water, to be boiled. Only use purified tap/drinking water. Do not get fancy and try using something like rainwater.
-a plate
-the pacifier

  1. Bring your water to a boil and drop the pacifier in for up to five minutes (the way a pacifier would normally be cleaned)
  2. Point your wand at the water and slowly rotate clockwise, focusing on your intent. Fill yourself with love for the child and visualize that love flowing out of you, through the wand, and into the water. Imagine the rolling bubbles infusing that love into the pacifier and releasing it into the air as steam. Do this for as long as you see fit
  3. While waiting for the five minutes to be up, set your plate down and retrieve your crystals. If the plate is small like a saucer, circle the crystals around the outside of it. If it’s larger, place the crystals around the edge of the plate, away from the center.
  4. When the pacifier is done take it out and dry it before placing it in the center of your plate
  5. wave the wand clockwise over the crystals, around the pacifier, focusing on your intent. Create a strong ring of energy full of love and light surrounding the pacifier. Envision it slowly extending up to form a bubble or dome over the pacifier. Then use your energy to fill it in completely so that the pacifier and crystals are all bathed in love and light
  6. When you intuitively feel that this has been accomplished, bring your wand to the bubble and tap it as if to make it burst. Picture it like a bubble full of smoke, releasing it into the air as it dances away. Envision this burst of energy spreading to fill all corners of your house
  7. Let the pacifier cool on the plate with the crystals before giving it to your child
  8. Keep these crystals somewhere you associate with your child such as their crib in a soft pouch, on the windowsill of their playroom, in the bottom of their bin of toys, underneath the changing table, anywhere!
  9. Perform this ritual every time the pacifier needs to be cleaned
  10. Be sure the cleanse the crystals however you see fit before performing the ritual again. In this case you can use any method you like, as the crystals are not meant to come in direct conact with the pacifer or child at any time. You are welcome to let the child hold them for a bit if you like but be wary that they don’t go in their mouth! Especially the calcite

This spell should surround your child with your love at all times, and promote a positive atmosphere of growth and happiness.

The Batman and Flash shirts I was really excited about showed up in the mail the same day my mom found the Batdance record at a flea market. So now I have a bounty of baseball tees and a record I can play by making a makeshift record player out of paper. If you’re too young for the old Bat-movie hype, this insanity is what happens when you let Prince tackle Batman. Figuratively. 

So to celebrate I wore my Batshirt a few days ago and pretended I knew what I was doing when I used anything but my jeans. No one asked me to save them, but I assume it is because they were too intimidated by how vengeance and the night I was being. A baby on the train was really into me, though. She kept looking at me and waving this toy around. “Settle down, chum” I told her. “You’re not quite old enough to be a Robin yet.” But that only encouraged her theatrics.

Also, I grombled down some sushi at my desk in front of the new hot music intern with little to no shame. Fuck you and your horn-rimmed glasses, new guy. This stuff is expensive. The symbol on this shirt doesn’t stand for “Chick Who Doesn’t Gromble Food At Her Desk Like a Badass”.

I am still learning clothes. I think I will roll around in this dress for Mom’s day and make my mom some foods. Be good to your motherly figures and always drink your Ovaltine and do your homework and rest your eyes every few hours when on the computer.
