Properties of Aura Quartzes

**Aura Quartzes are somewhat man made and bonded with metals but those metals release massive amounts of energies. So when you see one you might not wanna pass it up.**

Here are some aura properties.

Tangerine Auras: They promote compassion, forgiveness, joy, happiness and healing. They heal the emotional body and repair damaged relationships between parents and children.

Aqua Auras: Now these are my personal favorites because of their beauty. Aquas promote truth, psychic abilities, success, abundance, prosperity, and wealth. 

Angel Auras: Opens the path to guidance and assists in finding spiritual guides.

Apple Auras: A stone that promotes memory, protects against psychic attacks, and helps sever previous relationships.

Rainbow Auras: Brings all positive energies to all centres of the body and releases negative energies. This stone would be great for warding and repelling curses.

Rose Auras: Promotes the gift of unconditional love, a connection to universal love, and helps brings the body back to perfect balance.

Colbat Auras: Melts away feelings of anger, distress, and sadness. Assists into developing a state of non-attachment and enhances meditative states.

Note: Do not charge these via sunlight or water because sunlight will cause the stone to fade and water can damage the metals that are bonded with the stone.

🖤The Venus Elixir🖤

The purpose of this elixir is to aid in self confidence, and act as an aphrodisiac for the person drinking it. This potion contains alcohol.

“Venus is the power that we invoke in spring, in the garden, when things begin growing. And we call the evening star Venus” -Ursula K. Le Guin Lavinia 

Ingredients: 

🖤 Raspberry liqueur Beauty, lust, attraction 

🍹 Cranberry juice The ability to take action, lust, courage, attraction 

🖤 A slice of orange Happiness, communication, clarity

🍹 A drop of honey Attraction, divinity, the ability to sweeten a situation or person to your favor 

🖤 A drip of vanilla extract Calming, soothing, vitality, mental stimulation 

🍹 A cup/glass 

🖤 A stirring utensil 

(Optional: Ice, which can be added at the start or finish of preparing the drink)

Always stirring clockwise, mix together about a 1:1 ratio of raspberry liqueur and cranberry juice. Focus on the deep purplish red of the liquid, and in your mind picture a small glowing ball of red energy from inside your drink.  

Next, swirl in a drop of honey. (This mixture is very sweet as is; not a lot of honey is needed) Watch it drip into your cup and envision the golden honey to be like a soft stream of molten energy, flowing to the centre of the red orb in your drink. 

Then, to get just a subtle amount of vanilla, dip your stirring utensil into some vanilla extract and stir it into your drink. (A full drop can be used, but be aware that extract is very strong and it may be overwhelming) As you stir it in, watch the burning red sun in your drink grow to fill the cup, pulsing with light. 

Lastly, take your orange slice and squeeze it’s juice into the drink. When the citrus drops collide with your glowing energy orb, allow it to burst open and fill the drink with its effects as a swirling and shining liquid, fit for divinity. 

Please drink responsibly. 

A Witches Glossary by The Aries Witch ♈

So, I often get asked things like ; what is a ___, What does ___ do? so i thought i would put together this little glossary :)

an Altar: A space set out with a cloth and other items used to represent magick. This place should be full of useful things during a spell as it aids as a focus point for your magick. Many witches like to change their altars around with the cycles of the seasons.

Amulet/ Charm/ Talisman: An item worn to attract certain energies (example: Luck, love)

Athame (Ath-Ah-May) : A witches knife, traditionally black handled and double edged, it is used to direct magickal energy.

Arcana: The 2 groups of cards in a Tarot deck - They are Major and minor

Astrology:   The belief and study of the effects of the movements and placements of planets and other heavenly bodies have on the lives and behaviour of those born at certain times.

a Book Of Shadows/ Grimoire: A witches’ personal book of spells, rituals, magickal properties, experiences and lessons learnt. 

Casting Circle/ Sacred Circle: The ‘circle’ is a protective space in the metaphysical world for you to perform your magick in! Although not every witch casts circle, i do recommend it, as from my point of view not casting circle would be like leaving your front door open for strangers. But really, as long as feel safe and protected while working you will be fine. The circle can be visualised as a white sphere of energy manifested around oneself. The four elemental quarters are usually set out in their appropriate directions within this circle.

Cauldron: A heat proof pot that can be used for magickal cooking and such, and is symbolic of the womb and fertility

Censer: A big heatproof bowl for dispensing incense smoke.

It is also the time where the Goddess reigns in her powerful aspects of the Crone.

Scrying: A form of divination where one will gaze into a reflective surface, usually dark water or a crystal ball to see images

anonymous asked:

any advice on how to see dragons? (preferably in the same layout as your post on faerie sight, as someone with adhd I really like how the post looks)

(However, there seems to be less information and sources regarding seeing dragons than there is around faeries…)

Dragons are known to assist in protection and healing magick if they wish to do so. 

How to see dragons:

  • Dragons no longer exist within the material world and therefore can now only be seen with the third eye, if your third eye is not open, I would suggest doing regular meditation.
  • A general way of seeing them is to invite them (although this comes with a warning of opening a beast gate, so it is advised to do a protection spell, shield, or a protective talisman). 
  • Do not give off an impression of dominance or command over a dragon.
  • Put yourself in a state between consciousness and unconsciousness (this can be done through meditation/yoga nidra) when inviting/requesting a dragon, the speech can be simple if you wish to do so.
  • Dragons are not within our world anymore, and so like the fae, are in a different dimension, and crossing into their dimension can be dangerous if you are inexperienced - however, they can cross into our dimension but they will not have a solid material form, and will appear quite ethereal.

There is a general dragon guide on which dragon you would be able to draw more easily towards you according to your element:

  • Capricorn - Earth
  • Aquarius - Air
  • Pisces - Water
  • Aries - Fire
  • Taurus - Earth
  • Gemini - Air
  • Cancer - Water
  • Leo - Fire
  • Virgo - Earth
  • Libra - Air
  • Scorpio - Water
  • Sagittarius - Fire

The second means of determining which Elementals you have the best connection with is through your first name (your birth-name is, like your astrological chart, an energy centre, reflecting the play of certain energies within your life). The vowels of your first name are the keys to determining with which elemental you are most harmonious. The primary vowel in your first name indicates which group of Elementals you can align with most easily. The primary vowel is the one most strongly pronounced

If the astrological element and the name element are the same, it can indicate that you have come to double your work with that group of Elemental Beings and the energies that they work with. If they are opposite, they do not cancel each other out, it means that it is up to you to find a balance between them when you are working with them

The elemental dragons:

  • Air - They are known to be pure yellow, grey, light blue, silver, and white. Air dragons tend to be peaceful and share powerful knowledge once they trust you. They have ability to control the winds and manipulate air in all forms. These dragons are long and slender, have gauzy wings, and may have feather-like qualities instead of scales, as well as actual feathers around their bodies and features. They are associated with the east. Other dragons that may fall under this category include storm dragons, weather dragons, lightening dragons, and wind dragons.
  • Fire - They are known to be pure red, amber, orange, and all shades of flames. These dragons have an obvious fiery nature, but can also be gentle and understand (however, dragons are not predictable). These dragons are thick and heavy and have snake-like necks and tails, as well as wicked horns. Their presence may invoke a sense of warmth. They are associated with the south. Other dragons that may fall under this category include lava dragons, desert dragons, steam dragons, and heat dragons.
  • Water - They are known to be pure blue, dark blue, blue-green, and turquoise. These dragons have a very soothing influence and are attracted to people who have strong emotions, and will not contact those who are not respectful towards their emotions. The dragon’s presence may bring humidity or a colder temperature within the room. These dragons are long and serpentine, and rarely have wings and legs. Their scales have a shimmery hue to them and they often have a feathery fringe around their mouth, they tend to have glowing eyes. They are associated with the west. Other dragons that may fall under this category include ice dragons, mist dragons, and rain dragons.
  • Earth - They are known to be pure green, and every shade of brown and black. These dragons are very quiet beings, and will often observe from a distance before they wish to approach you. They are blunt/honest but are also very nurturing. They tend to have a ridge of sharp scales down their legs and back, and their scales are often reminiscent of armour. They tend to have an enormous wing span and four legs. These dragons love treasure, and in order to have a relationship with them, you should have a jar or a dish of coins. They are associated with the north. Other dragons that may fall under this category include stone dragons, nature dragons, mountain dragons, and forest dragons.
  • Chaos - Their colour is pure black. These dragons are always of dark colour and can blend into darkness, often it will look like they have stars caught in their scales. They tend to be the largest of dragons, have large wedge-shaped heads, and often have spiked tails. Chaos dragons have huge wings that will blend into the night sky and may be hard to make out. They are rarely seen if they do not wish it. Chaos dragons may seem threatening, although they are not completely malicious. They do not act as guardians or guides. They are powerful aids in divination.

Dragons and their colour meanings:

  • Purple - embody the highest level of dragon wisdom, ancient, very judgemental, will often test you; never call upon a purple dragon, they will only visit you - and their visits are random.
  • Silver - they see every perspective and reflections between beings, and inhabit the meridians of the universe.
  • Orange - bring strength, confidence, and bravery. They are quick by nature.
  • Green - will bring lessons and qualities of the material.
  • Brown - masters of physics, shapeshifting, gravity, and the physical form.
  • Blue - intricately linked with illusion, mental awareness, and consciousness. They have a great insight into the etheric plane.
  • Red - they literally eat darkness and transmute it into light.
  • White - pure and graceful, they are often guardians; these dragons can be channelled for healing.
  • Gold - they bring art and music, and speak the language of the heart.

Foyer de danse à l'Opéra de la rue Le Peletier (1872). Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917). Oil on canvas. Musée d'Orsay, Paris.

This work shows ten ballerinas being examined in the great hall. The white-clad instructor, Louis François Mérante, is giving directions to the dancers. Those who are not busy exercising are watching the ballerina currently being examined with close attention. The scene, remarkable for the rigour of its composition, has a distinctive energy centre in the vacant chair at the fore.

Neolithic pottery and flint tools found in Fife

A hoard of Neolithic pottery and flint tools, which lay buried for over 4,000 years, has been uncovered during works to lay a pipe in Fife.

The find at Kincaple was made as engineers laid pipework to connect St Andrews University’s green energy centre at Eden campus in Guardbridge with North Haugh in St Andrews.

About 30 pieces of “grooved-ware” pottery were excavated from a pit.

Tools, made from flint - most probably from Yorkshire - were also found.

The tools show trade over considerable distances for the era.

Analysis of the flint showed the tools had been used for stripping bark and skinning animals, amongst other tasks, and probably represented a tool kit for someone. Read more.

Conrad Shawcross “The Optic Cloak”.

The structure, 49m high by 20m wide and 3m deep is constructed of 400 tonnes of structural steel and supports hundreds of perforated aluminum triangular panels that fold across the surface to create a Moiré Effect. 

This sits above a new Energy Centre under construction on the Greenwich Peninsula that will serve the largest residential new-build district heating system in Europe.
