A potion for new beginnings

Hello everyone! 💎🔮🌙
This is a moment of big changes in my life, both practically and spiritually. I decided to celebrate the new beginnings in my life with a potion that promotes changes, evolution and self-love. Tonight is also this month’s new moon, so this is really the best time to prepare this potion. 

Ingredients 🌸

  • Green tea for energy and cleansing
  • Dried rosebuds for new beginnings
  • Dried jasmine flowers for a clear vision of the future
  • Blackberries for protection and healing 
  • Maple syrup (or sweetener of choice) for self-love and self-indulgence

Recipe 🔮

Bring a pot of water to a boil, then turn off the heat and add the green tea leaves, rosebuds and jasmine. Let the herbs infuse for 5 minutes. Filter the herbs and add the berries while the tea is still hot, smash them with a fork and let them sit in the tea for about 10 minutes. Filter the potion, add the sweetener (to taste) and pour it in a bottle. You can refrigerate the potion or drink it warm. I also put a sigil on the bottle to reinforce the power of the potion, and i decorated it with rose quartz beads. 

May the new moon light your way!

🌱🍓 Happy Summer Tisane 🍓🌱

- Green Tea for a conscious mind, magic energy, love

- Fresh Strawberries for passion, sweetness, carefree joy

- Lavender for calm (to avoid the happiness being ‘manic’ as mine often is)

- Basil for prosperity, happiness, peace

- Raw Honey for sweetness, to preserve the longevity of the spell

Mash your strawberries, I used a mortar and pestle, while focusing on your intention. Then combine your ingredients and pour over your boiling water, envisioning pouring your intent into the teapot, and steep, covered, for about 3 minutes. After steeping, pour through a strainer, envisioning straining out any negativity, and enjoy while doing something you love! 

Personally, I’m crocheting and watching adventure time!

anonymous asked:

hello! i've been trying to research magic, but unfortunately most books i find are specific wicca, which i'm not interested in. do you have any book reccomendations that arent wicca centric? thank you! i love your blog :^)

Oh heckin yes I do My amazon wishlist is literally like six pages long… ALL BOOKS

WARNING: This Is Going To Be Extremely Long!

First though I want to note that while I 100% understand your feelings about the Wicca stuff (being a very NOT Wiccan Witch), not all books that are Wicca leaning are bad! I’ve gotten loads of useful information from books that tended to be a little new agey. That’s where being objective comes in! With ANY book, you should take it with a grain of salt, and some with a whole shaker. But it’s up to you to pay attention to misinformation and conflation, and to know how to do research to prove or disprove that something in a book you read is true or not. Does that make sense?? 

Anywho, a couple of books that are still kind of “Wicca-y” but great:

Those are all books from my personal collection that I would recommend! Now as for the Non-Wicca Books, Let’s dive in! Not all of these have I read or owned, and they are in no particular order. You’ll notice most of them relate to “Traditional Witchcraft” or West Country, because that is where my practice is focused. 

PHEW!

That was a lot! Okay anon I hope this gives you a good starting place!

Moody Judy Potion

A blend for those days when you just feel awful, annoyed, irritated or just any negative emotion overall.

  • **Orange Slice
  • Lime Slice
  • 2 cups Lime Juice
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 1 Bay Leaf

Boil the moon water then steep the herbs for 7-10 minutes, then add the sugar, stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Add the lime juice into a glass or container then pour in the boiled water. Mix it all together **add more sugar if needed. After add the orange and lime slices and enjoy!

**Optional!!

Whenever a fictional setting depicts witchcraft and wizardry as essentially opposed schools of magic, all I can picture is a couple of old masters crankily snarking at each other about the “proper” way to do magic, while in the background the witch’s apprentice sidles up to her wizardly counterpart all “hey, I’ll sneak you a copy of my best healing potion recipe if you teach me how to shoot fireballs”.

Language headcanons 

Charlie is terrible with languages - he’d tried to pick up several over the years, especially when he lived in Eastern Europe, but to no avail. 

WSL - Wizarding Sign Language - was adapted as a more reserved form of regular BSL by a deaf Ravenclaw who kept triggering accidental magic with the excited movements of her hands. 

Sybil Trelawney was born speaking Ancient Greek. No one knows why. It was hardly the thing that scared her parents the most.

Ron has an unexpected knack for languages, and after the Parseltounge incident during the Battle of Hogwarts, Hermione encourages him to explore it. He picks up French and German without a hitch (although he can’t spell for shit in either), and learned Giant Language on a whim to make Ginny laugh. All three come in handy as an Auror. 

Fleur takes great pride in being bilingual. She thinks about her history in French and her future in English. 

Snape writes up all his formal calculations, experiments, and new Potions recipes in Latin. It narrows down the amount of people who can read it, and comes in useful to recite in his head while practicing Occulemency. 

Hermione kept up her study of Ancient Runes after leaving Hogwarts - partly because she loved the way it made everything simple and clean, just tracing the power words hold, and partly because it made her indispensable at the Ministry. Most of the best Runologists of the generation had taken a side during the war that made them no longer welcome in polite company.

★~A Peaceful Night potion~★

This is a quick spell for a night of peaceful and restful sleep, it’s great when you’re low on energy and don’t have time for a big spell!

~What you need:
★ 1 mug full of milk (or milk substitute) - happiness
★ 1 tsp dried food grade rose petals - calm, happiness
★ 1 tsp dried food grade lavender - calm, sleep
★ Desired amount of honey or sugar - happiness
★ (Optional) Rose quartz and/or amethyst - calm, happiness and sleep

~What to do:
★ Add milk, rose petals and lavender to a saucepan and bring to the boil
★ Once boiling take off the heat and pour into your mug
★ Add your honey or sugar if you’re using it and stir clockwise to fill the mug with your intent
★ If using crystals, keep them next to you or on your lap while you drink your potion
★ Get to bed and get some sleep!

So my third grade teacher was also a Harry Potter fan and she used to do this thing where when we came in from Recess there would be a scroll of parchment on the windowsill that “Hedwig” had brought us and it would always be a letter from Harry asking for help with his homework or something and she would let us all grab capes and robes from a box of dress up clothes and we’d write back as a class to tell him how to use commas or help him with the fractions in his potions recipe or something.

In hindsight I’m not sure how she got away with it bc this was at the height of the “HARRY POTTER IS TURNING OUR CHILDREN INTO DEVIL WORSHIPERS” nonsense and she wasnt even allowed to keep the books in our class bookshelf but she also had pet newts in the classroom and unflinchingly picked up a very large (domestic) rat that had escaped from someone’s show and tell down the hall and snuggled it while she carried it back so maybe she actually was a witch idk

To Awaken Latent Magical Abilities

Requested by @skullkisser-jynx

Supplies Needed:

-          One boiling crucible

-          Source of fire

-          Wooden Spoon

-          Mortar & Pestle

-          Vial or other container for storing the potion

-          Wand (your hand will suffice if you lack a wand.)

-          Sieve – for straining the liquid.

Ingredients Needed:

-          One pint purified water

-          2 fresh lemons

-          Honey

-          Handful of fresh mint

-          An orange peel

-          1 small piece of fresh ginger root

-          Three coffee beans

-          One sage leaf

Most opportune time for conjuring: Monday during a Full Moon, although any time is the time for magic.

Prepare for brewing as you would for any magical working. Cleanse the space and yourself as you see fit. You may wish to illuminate the workspace by candlelight. If incense is desired, sweeten the air by burning a mixture of frankincense, cedar, dragon’s blood, or any other fragrance that pleases you.

INSTRUCTIONS

1.        Bring the pint of water to a boil, then reduce the heat and allow it to simmer.

2.       Squeeze the juice from the lemons and contribute to the water.

3.       Add 1 tablespoon of honey.

Bring to a boil again and stir clockwise, making sure all three are combined as one. Concentrate on your goal while stirring.

4.      Add the handful of fresh mint leaves, which should first be washed to remove any excess dirt.

5.       Crush the ginger root into a paste and add to the brew.

Bring the brew to a boil again. Continue to stir clockwise while concentrating on your goal.

6.       Contribute the orange peel.

7.       Add the 3 coffee beans.

8.       Add the sage leaf.

Allow the potion to boil for the space of thirteen minutes, stirring frequently while contemplating your magical abilities. After this time has passed, remove the potion from the fire. Point your wand at the brew (or the index finger of your hand of power) and project energy into the concoction. Allow this enchantment spell to be recited. (Fair warning: I really need to work on my rhymes. )

Power to charm, bewitch, and conjure

Locked within a deep, dark slumber

When to my lips, this brew is brought

My magic powers will then wake up

Project as much energy into the potion as you deem necessary. Afterwards, the liquid can be strained through the sieve and poured off into the vial or other container. It may then be consumed immediately before meditation, magical workings, or going to bed. Pay close attention to your dreams or any visions you might receive as they may very well point to which types of magic you ought to explore.

I think it goes without saying that you consume potions at your own risk. The ingredients given are noted as safe, however, everyone’s body reacts differently. Please note, the potion recipes are developed for effectiveness, not taste! (How many Witches on TV look forward to actually drinking a potion! 😉)

ANALYSIS:

This potion request was to awaken magical abilities. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve certainly had days where I’ve been groggy and felt like my magic was down. I wish I had written this simple potion ages ago! It could be a fun little way to jump start your magical abilities on one of those slower mornings.

As far as the ingredients go, everything selected is associated with awakening. Think about eating a lemon. Just thinking about it should make your mouth salivate and provoke a physical response. This is the same type of awareness we want to create for our magical abilities. The coffee beans are the main ingredient of a potion made my millions of people every day! No surprise why they’re included – they symbolize the awakening of those abilities. Ginger represents power, orange peel and honey represent the sweetness of life and the sage leaf represents wisdom.

nurseydex harry potter au

ok so i don’t know if anyone’s done this yet… probably… but i thought up some nurseydex hogwarts house things and wanted to share

so i thought a lot about dex’s house and my first thought was slytherin due to his ambition and resourcefulness, but then i immediately thought of hufflepuff. hufflepuff value hard work and dedication, both of which dex is not short of, as well as fair play, which dex values greatly. i debated whether or not dex would be placed in hufflepuff because of his quick temper, but the sorting hat considers which house would be best for the student to work on their weaknesses and become better people because of them. being surrounded by other students with lots of patience would definitely improve dex’s temper.

you can bet your ass nursey is from one of those old pureblood families but he isn’t stuck up about it, he’s actually super “chill”. nursey is sorted into ravenclaw, which values knowledge, wit and intelligence. nursey’s extensive knowledge of languages and literature help him into ravenclaw, but other traits such as his creativity, surprising amounts of wisdom and most of all acceptance secure his place.

they meet in a potions class. dex is brilliant at this subject : potions follow a systematic recipe and require a certain amount of inventiveness to work at their best. nursey is pretty awful, so dex begrudgingly offers to help him.

when they start dating the school finds out because of their ties. after a night in the room of requirement the two hurry to breakfast pretending to be simply friends, until dex sits down at the hufflepuff table wearing a ravenclaw tie and nursey does the same with a hufflepuff one. the great hall is in uproar. bets have been going on for weeks. lardo in slytherin collects over £200. dex’s ears are a walking gryffindor advertisement. nursey loves it.
