Voodoo Mama's Spellbook: A Lunar Menstrual Love Spell
*My spells, though voodoo/hoodoo influenced, are open to everyone*
This is a powerful love spell for those of us who have menstrual cycles. The menstrual cycle is proof that the universe is connected to you. The very moon is guiding your body like the tides of an ocean. So this is a spell written by my grandmother and she swears by it. She says that she met my papa two weeks after performing this spell. The concept is to allow the moon to lead your body to a new love. I have actually never done this spell but upon posting this I will be trying. (Single lesbian sobsob)
This love spell can be used two ways and I will get into more detail into the instructions. I prefer to ask for love to be guided to me instead of focusing on a particular person but you can do otherwise with a slight variation I will include. Let me note that everyone has their opinion on love spells. I do not care to hear yours.
SPELL MUST BE DONE ON A FRIDAY WHEN THERE IS A FULL MOON
-6 drops of menstrual blood
-2 basil leaves
-2 pinches ginger powder
-9 drops of juice from an orange
-full moon charged water
-cheesecloth or something to strain water
-6 red rose petals
-1 jar or container
-(Optional) Hair of the person if there is someone in particular.
First of all you want to mix your moon water, ginger powder and drops of orange juice.
Set it out in the moonlight while you peel and slice your peaches. Be very slow and delicate while you do this. It symbolized you opening yourself up to the new experiences.
Get your pot back and add the sliced peaches into the pot.
Add the basil and rose petals and place the pot on the stove.
While it boils, focus on it and push your desires onto it. This potion of love will be charged with your dreams and everything that you need from a lover. Think about certain aspects that you wish for that person to have. Don’t forget to stir every now and again.
Once it is boiling, let it go for 30 seconds or so.
Strain the water with your cheesecloth or whatever you plan to use into a jar. You can throw the items strained into the trash or use them for any gardening you need.
Make sure that your jar is only about ¾ of the way filled up.
Meditate while watching the jar. You can talk to any deity and do any prayers at this time. Ask it to be blessed. This water is a potion of love, charged by the moon.
Once you are ready, slowly add your blood. As it hits the water, the love potion is bound to you by blood. Watch it fall through the mixture. Think about how one of your most intimate aspects is now here. If you are using this on a person, add their hair now and think the same about them. They are tied to you.
Finally, add the red wine and fill the jar all the way up. This seals the deal. Think about the romance you want. Maybe talk to the mixture and tell it out loud. It loves suggestions. Please be specific and careful with your words.
Close the jar and give it 9 shakes filled with emotion and want.
If this is meant for a certain person, go to their home and pour the mixture below their window. If it is for just anyone, pour it under your own window.
Within the next month or two, if the spell has worked, you will meet someone who is brought to you by the pull of the moon.

Hai! I've noticed that you've made several posts about the black Hermione headcanon/opinion/whatever. I really like it, but as far as I know it can't be true. As far as I remember at least one of Hermione and Ron's kids is ginger, and mixed race people can't be ginger. I apologise firstly for ruining this, and secondly in the case that I am wrong.(If I'm wrong please correct me!)
yeah so that’ss….. not true??? plenty of black people are ginger/redheaded (malcolm x was, iirc!) just like google “redheaded black person” and there’s a bazillion examples. also, hairdye continues to exist!
Spring came and everything is blooming! I’m so happy! I would love to spend whole day outside only to look for flowers ;w; I hope that this year lilly of the valleys will rise from the earth and cover forest floor around my house. <3

“We had a dream that we would always be best friends. When we were born, for some it was the end. Now it seems there may not be tomorrow. But despite the horror and the sorrow, I love our world. I want us all to live. Now Rosa, you’ve asked me to forgive. One day, if mom survives this bitter night, then we shall meet again, and I will say, I loved you Rosa. Don’t you see? But we are different, you dream of everlasting love. Not me. Because what really matters is to live. And if we do, there will be nothing to forgive. But I’ll forgive you anyway.”
I thought tortoiseshell cats were cats with nearly all black or blue and red, apricot, or amber speckles. Aren't calicoes predominantly white with black or blue and red, apricot, or amber patches? Torbies = tortoiseshell with tabby markings, right? What are calicoes with tabby markings? Tabicoes?
Tortoiseshell can be a cat with any mix of the black and ginger genes. Calico refers to cats with the above pattern that also have large patches of white. Colour dilution modifiers can affect any base coat colour.
Tortoiseshell is just a colour. That colour can be modified with markings such as tabby, dilution or white patches, but underneath it all that’s still tortoiseshell. ‘Torbie’ is a strange portmanteau that I had not heard before, and to my knowledge is not in common use.
All these cats are torties.
But if they have enough white, they can also be called calico.
If they are calico then they are also tortoiseshell.
