To Ward ones home from witchcraft bury a potato in all four corners of the home with a sigil carved into it or a personal chant. These potatoes will create a barrier to ward off any incoming illness or curse.

Moonstone 

Energy: Receptive

Planet: Moon

Element: Water

Deities: Diana, Selene, Isis, all lunar goddesses

Associated metal: Silver

Powers: Love, divination, psychism, sleep, gardening, protection, youth, dieting

Magical/ritual lore: The moonstone, a blue, white, or pink opalescent feldspar, it intimately connected with the Moon in magical lore. So much so, in fact, that many use it in accordance with the lunar phases. Some say it is more magically potent during the Waxing Moon and less so during the Waning Moon. Other, however, use this stone during the Moon’s apparent lessening for divinatory rituals.

Moonstone has long been dedicated to Moon Goddesses. Wiccan ritual jewelry if often fashioned of silver and moonstones. A lunar wand can be constructed of silver tubing topped with a large moonstone. It is used for magical ritual.

This stone is a receptive and love-drawing. Wear or carry a moonstone to bring a love into your life. On the night of the Full Moon and by its light, ring a pink candle with moonstone cabochons. Light the candle and visualize yourself in a loving relationship.

The moonstone is also prized for its ability to workout problems between lovers, especially those who have bitterly fought. Hold a moonstone, empower it with loving vibrations, and give it to your troubled mate. Best of all, share this ritual with him or her by exchanging stones.

Because of its associations with the Moon, the bringer of sleep, the stone is often placed beneath the pillow, or moonstone beads are worn to bed in order to ensure restful sleep.

Like malachite and jade, the moonstone is associated with gardening. Wear during planting, or watering, or bury a small moonstone while visualizing your garden bursting with fertility. To entice a tree into abundant fruiting, tie or attach a moonstone to one of the tree’s limbs.

The moonstone is also gently protective. Because the Moon seems to travel through the zodiac, its stone is a traveler’s protective charm. Carry or wear when away from home, especially during travel in or over the water. This is a perfect gift for vacational or vocational sailors and friends leaving on cruises. Empower the stone with protective energies before presenting it. Moonstone rings can be worn while swimming for protection in the water.

An old ritual to determine future events can be performed at least three days after the Full Moon. Hold a moonstone in your hands while visualizing a possible future course of action, such as selling a house or accepting a new job.

Then, place the moonstone beneath your tongue and continue visualizing. After a few moments, remove the stone and end your conscious effort to retain the image. If it remains or if your thoughts continue to revolve around the possible act, it is a favorable one. If your mind turns to other matters, it’s better to take a different route.

If in doubt perform this rite once again.

Moonstone beads or pendants are worn during divinatory acts and produce psychism in general. Psychics keep moonstones with their tarot cards or rune stones to heighten their ability to use such tools. A quartz crystal sphere is also encircled with a moonstone prior to scrying.

This stone is worn or used in rituals designed to renew or maintain a youthful appearance and attitude (which can be more convincing than outward looks).

Love: The fragrant white flowers & it’s oils are added to love Sachets, Spells, & other such charms. Said to attract love of a spiritual manner, allowing for one to find a soul mate. As many species of Jasmine grow as vines, they can also be used in Love Sachets & spells to bind the intentions of your magick. Sea witches will offer jasmine flowers to the sea in order to bring their love safe back home from travelling or to send romantic mental messages to their hearts desire.

Prosperity: Jasmine is known as the flower of attraction, & is commonly used in spells when we wish to attract something to us, love, happiness, wealth, etc. When the flowers are burned or carried/worn on one’s person, they are said to attract wealth, money, & other such fortunes we may desire.

Quartz Crystal

Energies: Projective, receptive

Planets: Sun, Moon

Elements: Fire, water

Deity: The Great Mother

Associated Metals: Silver, copper, gold

Associated herbs: Copal, mugwort, chicory, sage, sweetgrass

Powers: Protection, healing, psychism, power, lactation

Magical/Ritual lore: Long thought by ancients to be solidified water or ice, quartz crystal has been used in religious and shamanistic systems for thousands of years. Because of its connection with water it has been utilized to magically create rain in many parts of the Pacific, including Australia and New Guinea.

Traditionally, quartz was utilized in the Eleusinian mysteries to produce the sacred fire by concentrating the heat of the Sun to ignite wood chips. I say “traditionally” because we don’t know much about these ancient, secret rituals. 

Quartz was in common use among North American Indians in rite and spell, and ceremonial wands topped with quartz crystal has been found in southern California. Cherokee shamans, acknowledging the crystal’s power, kept it wrapped in buckskin when not in use. At regular intervals it would be “fed” deer’s blood. It is a common component of shaman’s power bags or medicine bundles. 

Contemporary Wiccans wear quartz, often combined with silver, during Full Moon rituals. Because it is also Goddess-symbolic, quartz crystal spheres are often placed on the altar during lunar rituals. It’s icy cold temperature represents the sea. 

Two quartz crystals can also be placed on Wiccan altars to represent God and Goddess, the two primal, creative powers of the universe. Some place a natural crystal to represent the God and a sphere for the Goddess. 

In shamanistic terms, the quartz crystal is the shaman, and the shaman is the crystal. There is no difference between the two. As such, it is the perfect tool of the shaman and it is utilized in rituals throughout the world. 

Mystically, quartz crystal is symbolic of the spirit and intellect of human beings.

Quartz crystals are currently enormously popular. Their use in healing, altering consciousness, and magic have linked them to the spirit of the New Age. Long neglected by most of the world, save for their industrial applications, quartz crystal are today a huge commercial business.

There are a few herbs specifically used to cleanse quartz crystal. Sage and sweetgrass, two North American healing and purifcatory herbs, are both associated with quartz crystal and, in shamanism, are herbal counterparts to the stone. Make an infusion (tea) of either or both of these herbs by adding two tbs to nearly boiling water. Let them sit for at least a day in the infusion, the dry and hold in your receptive hand. if the stone feels “cleared”, it is ready for magic. If not, return to the infusion until it has done its work.

Clear or white quartz crystal is perhaps best known to the general public for stimulating psychism. Though most crystal spheres sold today are plastic or glass, true quartz crystal spheres are also available at fantastically expensive prices. Though well worth the cost to those who can afford them, crystals need not be worked by human hands to be magically effective, nor must they be pure, or free of inclusions.

In fact, many crystal scryers ir gazers utilize the inclusions, veils, and tiny prisms within crystals to enhance themselves. And simply gazing into any crystal point can produce psychism.

In the Renaissance, most scrying stones, or crystal balls, were fashioned of beryl, not clear crystal quartz. Crystal, however, was used in magical operations. It was sometimes half covered with pure gold and set on a base of ivory or ebony wood. This was used as an instrument of contemplation to awaken the psychic mind.

In nineteenth century European magic, the crystal sphere was placed beneath the pillow to create a rapport with the scryer, enhancing its effectiveness.

A crystal sphere can be exposed to the light of the Full Moon to strengthen its powers. Before scrying, a tea of mugwort or chicory is sometimes drunk, and fresh mugwort rubbed onto the crystal.

For protective purposes this stone is worn, carried or placed in the home. In the fourteenth century, the quartz crystal was engraved with the image of a man in armor holding a bow and arrow. The stone guarded its wearer and the place where it was situated.

Quartz crystal is used as a powerful amplifier during magic. It is worn or placed on the altar for this purpose. Wands of crystal are also quite popular at this time.

Thirteen crystals (representing representing the lunar year) or twenty one crystals (thirteen Full Moons plus the eight ritual occasions of Wicca) can be used to physically construct the magic circle, in which Wiccan rituals and magical rites are held. Situate the crystals with the points facing inward for religious ritual, meditation, or general magic, and with the points outward for defensive or protective magic. Quartz pebbles or tumbles polished stones may also be used.

A “crystal garden” can be easily fashioned if you have several crystals. Fill a large wooden or white earthenware bowl with white sand. Then set the crystals in the sand with their points upward. There are no particular directions as how to place the crystals, so use your imagination.

You may wish to trace a pentagram (five-pointed star) on the sand using a crystal then place one at each point and one in the center. This confers magical protection.

Workers utilizing the power of the elements may use five stones, four aligned with the directions (which relate to the elements) with the fifth in the center, representing Akasha, or the fifth element. This will empower your elemental magic.

Crystals may be set in a spiral formation for use as a focal point during meditation. The spiral is symbolic of spiritual evolution and reincarnation.

The crystal garden is a place of power, an altar of stone magic, a meditative device, and a protective ward for the home.

In magic performed in salt, earth or damp sand at the beach, runes or magic images can be traced with the tip of a quartz crystal. While drawing, send energy through the crystal to the image.

Folk Names: Blue Gum Tree, Stringy Bark Tree, Gum Tree

Gender: Feminine

Planet: Moon

Element: Water

…Origins…

There are over 700 hundred species of Eucalyptus, most of these being natives to Australia.  The generic name is derived from the Greek words ευ (eu) meaning, ‘Well’ 

…Magickal Uses…

Healing: Eucalyptus is an excellent ingredient in healing remedies & spells. The leaves are used to stuff healing poppets & are carried to maintain good health. Green Candles are used in combination with the Leaves & Pods, which are either included into the wax, or strung around the candle itself, & left to burn out completely to help relieve colds & flus. Eucalyptus Oils are also used for the same purposes, & to clear blocked sinuses & relieve blocked chests & airways, but should not be consumed as it can be toxic when taken internally. Placed underneath the pillow, the Pods are said to protect the sleeper from colds, the immature green pods are also strung around the neck to ease a sore throat. Branches of the Tree are also hung in the room of a sick person to promote recovery & good health. 

Protection: Eucalyptus is widely believed to effectively ward off evil and repel enemies. The Leaves are carried on the person or used in protection sachets. The Leaves are also said to help ward off our own personal evils such as addictions & ‘bad habits’ 

Purification: The Leaves are burned on Charcoal or made into Incense to cleanse & purify an area. The strong, fresh scent also repels insects like fleas, flies & mosquitoes. Leaves are placed around the house to prevent those inside from illness, & to rid the home of unwanted energies. 

…Medicinal Uses…

Eucalyptus is a great antiseptic. It has anti-infectious, anti-fungal, & anti-microbial properties that are commonly used in healing remedies to treat such ailments. The oil is used topically to treat bacterial infections & also to help ease muscle pain. As mentioned before it is also a great companion for those suffering with a cold or flu, as it’s strong, fresh aroma will help to clear blocked sinuses & airways. 

..Growing & Caring for Eucalyptus…

Plant eucalyptus in mid to late spring or fall, depending on your location and climate, making sure to water the Tree before, & after planting. Most species prefer full sun, & a well draining soil. Some variations of Eucalyptus will do well in potted containers, such species include; E.coccifera, E.vernicosa E.parviflora, E.archeri E.nicholii & E.crenulata.
