Bay

Bay leaves are a mysterious ingredient for soups and stews (you can’t eat them, it’s like swallowing razor blades!). But before you toss a leaf or two into your cooking pot (or cauldron, for all you kitchen witches out there), think about its other uses!

Put bay leaves in each corner of the house to protect its inhabitants, or carry it with you to protect you against black magic. Keep a Bay leaf under your pillow to encourage prophetic dreams, or write wishes on a leaf and burn it to make them come true.

You can also use Bay leaves in spellwork (both in and out of the kitchen) for protection, good fortune, success, purification, strength, healing and psychic powers.

Hey I was wondering if you had any tips on how to start out with working with divining, the elements, spirits, basic spells

Find which element you feel most drawn to! This doesn’t mean you cannot work with other elements, but it’s good to have somewhere to start.

Stormbornwitch’s Prosperity Spell Bottle

This spell bottle contains my prosperity powder. This powder is ideal for drawing money, prosperity, and success. Just on its own, the powder could be sprinkled onto a burning candle, dusted around your home or workplace or you could even add some to a hot bath!

Prosperity Powder - Grind & Combine:

  • Eggshells for protection, prosperity and good fortune
  • Sage for helping you make wise decisions
  • Bay Leaves for prosperity and success
  • Basil for wealth and success
  • Peppermint for money, prosperity and abundance

Then the powder is poured into a jar or bottle. Attached to the jar/bottle is a bay leaf with the rune Fehu (wealth and prosperity) painted on it in silver paint.

Using knot magic, the bay leaf is attached to the jar/bottle and then a candle is affixed to the top of the jar so that the candle can be lit every time I need a little money to flow into my life. This little spell bottle works really well. I’ve even been asked to make one for my boss at work.

Autumn Equinox 🍁🍂

For one of my Mabon rituals I found a giant fallen leaf and painted all of my bad habits/things I want to be rid of on it in copper paint. It was a fresh leaf so when it dries I will burn it and send the ashes into the wind, ridding myself of the habits I wish to be rid of.

but you like the taste of danger
(it shines like sugar on your lips)
and you like to stand in the line of fire
just to show you can shoot straight from your hip
must be a thousand things you would die for
(i can hardly think of two)
but not everything is better spoken aloud
not when i’m talking to you


My picture for the Leoniles exchange on twitter – my prompt was “kisses in the rain,” so I wanted to do Leo with a magical leaf umbrella, because he can multitask like that. :3

maybe that’s all that we need, is to meet in the middle of impossibility
standing at opposite poles, equal partners in a mystery
